Luxury Homes and Real Estate - Sotheby’s International Realty

San Francisco Bay Area, Northern California

Carrie B. Goodman

WHERE IT ALL IT BEGAN:? I am a fourth generation Bay Area native and have lived in San Francisco for nearly 25 years (not that I like to date myself!). My grandfather grew up in San Francisco and I come from a long line of real estate people – my great grandfather was a builder / developer, my grandfather a broker, my uncle a developer and my mother a general contractor. I have a deep passion for architecture, gardens, decorating and cooking. I love the unique characteristics of San Francisco’s neighborhoods and delight in finding a new gem on a street that I have walked a hundred times.

Before starting my career in real estate I had a successful career in hotel sales and marketing (hotels are still a dear passion). With 15 years of hotel experience, I am 100% customer service oriented.

WHAT PEOPLE LOVE TO CALL ME FOR: People call us for EVERYTHING – and we love that! The thing I love about my job is being able to have my community integrated in my work. Both Lisa and I love bringing people together – our clients, painters, electricians, gardeners, decorators, etc. I love going to work every day!

One of the things that I feel really sets me and Lisa apart is that we are very forthright; we are in business to help our seller’s get top dollar and our buyers find the RIGHT property – not just any property. We definitely share our opinions and our expertise! We know the market and we work with the highest integrity.

WHAT MATTERS:? My family – my husband, daughter, two step-daughters and dog, Sam (and cat, Tracy, but I’m not much of a cat person)! With a daughter in grammar school, I know what it’s like to navigate San Francisco’s schools and raise a family in the City. City living can be very rewarding and also very frustrating…I love that my job can help people navigate all of it!

In addition to juggling family life and work, I love to be outside exercising: running, hiking, walking through the Presidio and running the Lyon Street Steps. I should do more yoga… I love tennis and golf and heat! My favorite San Francisco days are the rare, super warm ones and bringing a picnic to the beach. I believe strongly in supporting the arts and feel very fortunate to have such world class programs in our City.
