We could not be happier and I firmly believe few, if any other agents, could have negotiated and delivered this deal. I could not be a more enthusiastic reference for her work…" 

- John and Jennifer, Sellers, Ashbury Heights


When it's time to make your move, Ilana guides you through the many phases involved with bringing your home to market and then leads you through the negotiation process so you don't leave any money on the table, ensuring you get the highest possible price and best possible terms for your home! If you're planning to buy, whether for yourself or an investment, Ilana has a tried and true process to get you in to the perfect property at the best possible price.


Her affiliation with Vanguard Properties brings with it targeted technologies and powerful marketing tools to add to her already rich knowledge of the city’s property market. Ilana gets it done so you can Live and Play in SF.

Our ability to LIVE and PLAY in SF are intertwined. San Franciscans don't just live in their homes; they live and play in their neighborhoods and sample the fun across the city. Each neighborhood has a unique flavor, distinct amenities and even its own micro-climate. There are over 50 micro-climates in SF alone...which means there's a lot to know!


Align with someone who understands home is much more than the structure you buy; it's living the lifestyle you want to live. Ilana knows when you land in your dream home in your dream neighborhood, you're able to live your best life and be part of the magic of San Francisco!

My Philosophy:

When we work together to achieve your goals, whether buying or selling, know that my ultimate goal is not just for you to have great success in our current transaction, it's to make your experience more amazing than you could possibly imagine! Not only do we want to achieve your buying or selling goals, we want to make the whole process seamless, stress-free and fun so that you wouldn't trust anyone else to work with any of your friends, family or colleagues. Because of that, my business is heavily built on repeat clients and referrals. Nothing brings me more joy than to extend our real estate family.

San Francisco itself is art, above all literary art. Every block is a short story, every hill a novel.

Every home a poem, every dweller within immortal. That is the whole truth.
