We are dedicated to providing top service to tenants, owners, buyers, and sellers in San Francisco.


The average career in real estate lasts less than eight years according to a study by the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

Longevity in the business requires respect, trust, and loyalty from your clients and others in the industry.

The Gordon/Clifford name is synonymous with all of these traits. Three generations of the family, starting in 1921, have served San Francisco’s real estate needs. Many of our current clients or their families have been with us for over 30 years – through multiple buildings and transactions. Over 95% of our business is from repeat clients or referrals and we pride ourselves in those long running relationships. Our diverse client list ranges from attorneys to real estate brokers, international investors to teachers, and firefighters to non-profit organizations.
