John Townsend

The 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.
