She has extensive experience in residential sales in some of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods including; Noe Valley, Mission Dolores, Duboce Triangle, SOMA, Glen Park, Hayes Valley, Bernal and Pacific Heights, to name a few.
Her experience in her previous career kept Rachel busy staying on top of her company’s sales, hot markets, trends and client demand. She developed a client-first mentality and can-do attitude that made the transition to real estate seamless. Her previous work experience also gave her a sound grasp on client expectations and ever-changing markets. She understands that purchasing a home is the biggest decision most people will ever make and she is here to help you navigate the ins and outs of buying and selling. As an expert negotiator, Rachel handles all the details that comprise a successful transaction in this complex business, keeping her clients educated along the way.
Rachel moved from the Midwest in 2005 when her sister, who was a San Francisco resident, told her it was, “the greatest city she had ever lived in.” Soon after moving to San Francisco, Rachel became fascinated by the grand architecture and history of San Francisco homes. It was then she decided to pursue real estate as a career. In 2009 she obtained her real estate license and from 2010-2016 worked with Hill & Co. Real Estate before joining Vanguard Properties in May 2016.
In 2013 she started The Swann Group SF, which is a team of agents and staff committed to ensuring an unparalleled and exceptional client-focused real estate experience. The Swann Group has one goal and that is to exceed every client’s expectations. They have collaborated with a vast number of clients to date.
