About Hans

As a born and raised San Franciscan with over 35 years of experience in San Francisco commercial leasing and sales, I understand the nuances of the real estate industry.

Setting New Standards
My unique approach to integrating high-tech support systems with personal attention to client needs is one of the reasons I helped establish my company, Starboard CRE. My goal was to create a company that shared my vision and a strong commitment to customer satisfaction. Today, we are setting new standards in the San Francisco commercial real estate industry. Locally based, technology-forward, Starboard CRE brings decades of brokerage experience representing over 600 million square feet of space with an aggregate lease value of over 10 billion and investments sold over 3 billion.


A Customized Strategy
Along with my qualified team, we have the experience, technology, and commitment to the market, lease, or assist purchases of office, retail, industrial, or investment property. This process involves listening to the client’s needs and formulating a plan for achieving specific goals. I am committed to my clients and pursue every possible option to negotiate successfully on their behalf.

A Foundation for Success
I began my business training with a local food service company where my drive, integrity, and work ethic helped propel it from a small two-man operation into a thriving business enterprise. From there, I embarked on a career in commercial real estate; built my reputation as a top producer with another commercial brokerage. Today, the insight, experience, and business savvy I learned along the way have become the foundation for my success and the driving force behind my firm becoming a model in its field.

Staying One Step Ahead
I am never content to rest on past success. I am always looking for new and better ways to achieve results. My laptop computer, “virtual office,” state-of-the-art website, an online network of property and research databases, and continuous use of the latest cutting-edge technology, allow me to stay one step ahead of the competition. It takes a unique perspective to succeed in commercial real estate – someone willing to listen and follow through. My team and I offer clients the most comprehensive and professional service available.
