Rick KaluzaThe Personality
A lifelong San Francisco Bay Area resident with expansive knowledge of the ever-changing regional real estate market, Rick’s expertise and fierce negotiating skills are matched by a personality that puts clients at ease. His extensive background in multiple facets of the business, from residential to commercial sales, leasing, financing, property management and development, enables him to confidently advise clients on a broad range of real estate needs. Known for his tenacity and diehard dedication, Rick has earned the respect of his colleagues and clients. He has been ranked a Top 100 agent for Coldwell Banker Northern California and was recruited by the #1 team at Sotheby’s globally before going on to become a founding agent at Compass San Francisco. The only thing that makes him happier than wins for the Giants, Warriors, or 49ers is when he helps a client reach their personal real estate goals. He calls Cow Hollow home (and playground) with his wife and two kids.
John TownsendThe Strategist
In John’s childhood home, conversations about San Francisco real estate were commonplace. Today, a deep understanding of market analytics and trends allow him to bring insight and focus to the strategic counsel his clients have come to rely on. Consistently ranked as one of San Francisco’s top producers, John has sold more than $300 million in property since 2012 and more than $700 million in total transactions since 2006. He’s highly active in San Francisco’s luxury property market, selling two of the city’s most expensive homes in the last two years—for $11,750,000 and $15,850,000, respectively. He has set numerous sales records in San Francisco, including price-per-square-foot records in Noe Valley, Bernal Heights, Alamo Square, Russian Hill, and several important condominiums and cooperative apartment buildings across the city. He volunteers as a member of The Guardsmen and is also an active member of San Francisco’s Olympic Club. He lives with his wife and two children in the city’s Richmond District.
