Zephyr Real Estate’s New Power Team

San Francisco, CA – October 9, 2017 – Three veteran, top-producing agents at Zephyr Real Estate have joined forces to create a new San Francisco powerhouse real estate sales team. Ken Eggers, Rob Rogers and Andrew Roth have launched DomainSF, a partnership where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. With a collective 60+ years experience and representing one of the highest-grossing groups among the Zephyr brand, the team brings a unique level of access and power to their sellers and buyers to elevate the entire real estate sales experience.

 

Ken Eggers, with more than 20 years’ experience, has an excess of 1,000 successful transactions under his belt. He has built a strong and effective network of peers, enabling him to leverage access to properties for his buyers as well as exposing listings to a much wider audience.

 

"We have always used a collaborative approach when advising our clients,” commented Eggers. “Whether the client needed an opinion of value or was trying to decide on the best time to sell or buy, or even looking at potential improvements for a property they already own, having our combined knowledge and perspectives has always been a great benefit for our clients."

 

Ken Eggers and Rob Rogers are based in the Noe Valley office. In addition to supporting clients in San Francisco, Andrew Roth is building-out our Marin County office. Combining their scope on both sides of the Golden Gate, team coverage will be incomparable, and they will now direct even more transactions throughout every San Francisco district.

 

"Our belief is that if we do the best job possible, and place our clients highest and best needs in front of our own, we will be rewarded in the long term with multiple referrals,” state Rob Rogers. “That’s how we've grown our business since ...
