Tucked between prosperous Pacific Heights and the trendy Marina, Cow Hollow is an oddly monikered but charming slice of San Francisco.

Our Commitment To You

Real estate in San Francisco is as unique and unpredictable as the city itself, and that is what our team falls in love with, over and over again. To us, a home is much more than four walls. It’s where our lives happen.

It’s where we bring home our newborns, raise our kids, and live out our dreams. It is our purpose to commit to finding your dream.

Christopher Di Giacomo

The Farmers Insurance Group
I started my agency 11 years ago with The Farmers Ins Group. I was introduced to the business by my father who has been with Farmers for 51 years. We share an office in San Francisco. Like most other insurance companies Farmers has the 24 hour claims service, competitive pricing an array of discounts, etc. Where I try my best to make working with me a unique experience is the service aspect of my industry. No one enjoys working with insurance companies, (myself included). It’s unfortunately too common for agents, claims adjusters, staff, etc to not return calls or emails in a timely manner. I can’t guarantee we’re the least expensive, or that your claim will be handled perfectly or that we will offer more discounts than anyone else; but what I can guarantee is a call, text or email back within 24 hours. I look forward to your call. • All-in-one acquisition/construction/permanent loans • Vacation and second home financing • Bridge financing • Brokerage/Securities financing • Single family home loans • Cooperative and condominium loans • Residential income property loans • 100% financing loan option with additional collateral • Home equity lines of credit
