Meet our talented team that works with San Francisco's most motivated buyers & sellers on a daily basis.
Our goal is to provide every client with strong, detailed information and advice so they can choose the best real estate property for their specific situation. We think of ourselves as advisors, not salespeople, so our primary concern is looking out for our clients’ best interests.Known as San Francisco’s “condomaniac,” Jeffrey started his real estate career at Prudential California Real Estate where he was a consistent top producer. After Prudential, he worked in commercial real estate but decided his true passion was working with home buyers and multi-unit building investors thus Spinnaker was created.
The quality of Jeffrey’s services were just excellent. We have referred Jeffrey to a bunch of other people already. We like how he tailors his service to the client’s needs and finds such good deals. There was never any pressure. It always seemed like he had our best interests at heart. In fact, I liked how he convinced us not to bid on certain properties which he felt were way over-priced.
Success in this industry takes hard work. But it can be very enjoyable and rewarding. Especially when a client’s dreams are exceeded and you know that you’ve done your best to make it happen.
Rob is very familiar with the San Francisco real estate market as well as those of Contra Costa and Alameda Counties in the East Bay. Rob’s clients know him as an agent with integrity, patience and a strong work ethic. He especially enjoys the day-to-day experience of scouring the local real estate markets to find the property that is the perfect fit for the buyers he is working with. Rob puts his clients’ interests and needs at the forefront believing that this is the way to achieve long-term success and ultimately serve his clients best.
I worked with Rob Bryan, who was extraordinary and very patient. I had some high hopes for my future home, and in this tricky real estate market I knew we would potentially hunt for a long time. Regardless of the long search, he answered all of my questions, took me to see who knows how many open houses, and addressed my concerns. I really felt I could trust him to help me in making a very important decision. I’ve come away from working with Rob feeling like he not only offered incredible professional help, but that he is also a friend. Cheesy and cliche as it may be, he is wonderful! Rob has actually come over to my new place on more than one occasion to fix things. This continues to astound me. He is a phenomenal agent and person, and I would use him again in a heartbeat. – Maggie

In terms of negotiations, he gave me very good assessments of where the market prices should be and the best price to offer. "
"One thing is that he's very knowledgeable about real estate buying and second he's not a pushy guy. He doesn't want you to just make a deal for his commission. He wants you to find the best home for you. My experience was pretty positive."

I highly recommend Jeff Marples of Spinnaker Real Estate Group. His experience, expertise (of the market and process), and patience was invaluable during the search and acquisition of my first home. As time passed and my needs changed, I have been able to call on Jeff and get his advice on the market and my options and take action with confidence. His professionalism is unparalleled.
Jeff Marples is the definition of "going above and beyond."
Jeff just handled the sale of my Mother-in-Law's San Francisco condo. I live over an hour away and Jeff a cheerfully and efficiently handled so much more than I consider part of an agent's responsibility. Everything from arranging (and selecting) paint, carpet and making arrangements for plumbers and inspectors and a lot more.
He got a good price for us and arranged for the sale to close with minimal problems. I could not recommend any other agent more highly.
We recently sold our San Francisco condo. After meeting Jeff Marples, we were convinced that he was the best agent for the job based on his knowledge of the market, his ability to listen and understand our needs as sellers and his overall personality and energy. We were not disappointed. It's fantastic working with someone follows through completely with all their commitments, and that's Jeff to a tee. If you're looking for an agent that will always go the "extra yard" on your behalf, look no further.
Jeff Marples should be your agent. Seriously. He's warm, funny, reliable, interested, savvy, forthright, and helpful. He is never impatient, never annoyed, and never pompous. We worked with him over many months selling our original condo and finding a new one in a better neighborhood. In terms of finding the new place, Jeff figured out what we needed/wanted and kept us supplied with possible options week after week -- until the magic one showed up. Once we had identified the target, Jeff worked beautifully with the listing agent to help us win the bid. Getting the deal done was a work of art and Jeff was Picasso.
Step two was then selling our existing unit. Once we had the new place, Jeff efficiently arranged for repainting and staging and had the unit on the market in no time. Once on, because of savvy pricing and effective marketing, we had a couple offers right away. A moment of turbulence happened a couple of weeks later because the original buyer vacated the deal, but Jeff had presciently arranged for a backup offer at the same price. We closed at top dollar. Getting the second deal done was a work of art and Jeff was Monet.
Jeff is good. Relaxed. Honest. Fun and funny. Effective. Artistic with the deal. He's the Best.
We have lived in the bay are for over 35 years and Jeff is the very best broker we have ever worked with. He is smart,funny and very precise in everything he does. Found us everything we needed and he even goes that extra mile. He adds a great personal touch that is rare to find and we thoroughly enjoy Jeff and his company and all their expertise. Will most certainly do business with Jeff again in the future!!
We recently used Jeff Marples when we were ready to start looking at condos in the South Beach area . We had talked to another agent over the phone previously but it was clear that he wasn't familiar with the area . After a brief conversation with Jeff we were convinced he was very knowledgable . Within a day of looking at open houses he had correctly assessed our tastes and we ended with a successful purchase and close shortly thereafter . He was extremely professional , knowledgeable and clearly represented our interests the whole process . We would highly recommend him and have done so .
Last year, we were getting ready to sell our townhouse in San Francisco, and we called Jeff at Spinnaker. Friends had referred us to him after their own successful sale with him. He recommended what improvements to do in order to get the house into the best condition for sale. We were commuting between the SF house and our other home and to help us with logistics, Jeff recommended the best sources for flooring and painting. Once we emptied the house and after we made arrangements with the flooring and painting contractors, he was willing to oversee the installation of the flooring as well as being available for the painting, coordinating the energy inspection and installation of the required low-flow toilets, and hanging a new chandelier. His help with the pre-sale pre work was invaluable to us, ensuring that we didn't have to drive 70 miles in and out of SF every day to oversee all that work. It all came out beautifully. When we put it on the market, he used social media as well as email and traditional media to get the word out at a time when the market was softening somewhat. He diligently held broker open houses and public ones, and kept contacting others throughout his wide network. The offer we accepted was a solid one and he helped throughout the contract process making sure that parties on the buyers side were all in and that we were informed regularly as we went along, so this deal went through to a successful conclusion. He is a real pro, creative, supportive, knowledgeable and a very nice person as well.
My husband had worked with Jeffrey in the past and had nothing but great things to say about him. Our family was relocating from Sacramento to the Bay Area and we knew just who to call to get the job done. His knowledge of the Bay Area real estate market is second to none. Jeffrey is not only personable but genuinely cares about his clients purchase, making sure the home fully meets their expectations. If you want a real estate agent that's a real go getter and straight shooter, Jeffrey is your guy. We would not hesitate to hire him again.
We met Jeff Marples just by chance while we were looking for a condo in San Francisco. From the first day we liked him for his professionalism, down to earth attitude and treating us as a valued client. He pointed us in the right direction for our condo, based on our needs and guided us away from the properties that were not right for us. After we chose our condo, not only did he guide us every step of the way through the buying process but even helped us get our condo ready for move in. I would strongly recommend Jeff Marples to anyone who is looking to buy / sell property in San Francisco.
My husband and I worked with Jeffrey Marples at Spinnaker and had a fantastic experience. We had actually been working with another realtor who was on vacation when we found a house that we liked, and Jeffrey stepped in without missing a beat. As first-time buyers it was important to us to find someone who could guide us through the process of buying a home and answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend Jeffrey and Spinnaker!
Jeff recently sold a tri-plex in the Richmond area of San Francisco. This was an estate sale that involved several members of my family that had varying degrees of involvement. This involvment added many unforseen complications. This was coupled with an uncooperative tennant. Jeff was never less than completely professional in the face of a very tough situation. Jeff is a person of the highest integrity and this translates to no surprises, no games, great communication and peace of mind at the close of the sale. I don't believe you can find a better realtor than Jeff and I've worked with more than a few. I give him my highest recommendation. I also want to talk about Juli. Juli works with Jeff and she is also a joy to work with. Juli gets on top of things fast and is as good as her word. Juli couple with Jeff made for a very formable team.
Jeff is absolutely the best. We just finished our third sale/purchase with him and every one of them has been just perfect. In one case, we looked for a place for over a year. We gave him our specs and neighborhood preference and he was patient and supportive as we sorted through places that weren't quite right until we found the perfect place. Throughout the process, Jeff was helpful in showing us an array of options that he thought would match with our needs and some creative possibilities that he picked based on his knowledge of our preferences. He knows the market and tracks options coming on; so, we got to new possibilities very quickly.
Jeff is very accomodating as well. He would arrange his schedule to match with ours which was often on weekends or during evenings (because of work schedules). He also was good about supporting the whole family. He is a family guy and understands and appreciates kids and makes them part of the search. When we brought our son along for some of the viewings, he included him and listened to his ideas and feedback too.
Jeff also works with the mortgage brokers and other agents and title companies to make sure they have what they need to close the deal and keep things in order along the way. He is a relationship builder and clearly has the confidence and trust of others involved in transactions which helps speed things up and avoid potholes along the way.
To top it all off, Jeff has a great personality and sense of humor which helps during challenging times. He is open to feedback and you can be completely honest with him without any frustration or push back. All of this helps to get exactly the place you want.
We could say more, but I think we've made the point. If you work with Jeff, you will be impressed by how well things works on all fronts.
