Anthony Kwiecien is a lifelong resident of the bay area, having grown up in Silicon Valley. After receiving a BA in Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley, Tony spent the next few years living in Japan and traveling through Asia, where he learned to understand the nuances of the Asian culture, which is quite beneficial when dealing in real estate in the Pacific Rim.
Upon his return in 1989, Tony opened in the Presidio Heights neighborhood of San Francisco the Phoenix Gallery, a retail art gallery specializing in Chinese antique furniture and accessories. Tony also offered full interior design services. During this time, Tony was able to establish many wonderful relationships with the residents in the neighborhood. In 2004, Tony decided to segue in to real estate, where both his degree in architecture and knowledge of interior design made this a natural transition.
Tony began his real estate career at Warwick Properties Group, a boutique real estate brokerage that specializes in the sale and marketing of luxury properties in the north end of San Francisco. Working with many clients who recognized his knowledge of the luxury market, Tony was successful in translating this knowledge into many high end sales, which helped to establish him as one of the top luxury agents in San Francisco.
In 2011, Anthony joined Sotheby's International Realty. Anthony strongly believes in the brand recognition of Sotheby's International Realty, and by joining with the brand, Tony is able to utilize all that the company has to offer, which in turn only benefits his clientele.
In addition to supporting a number of important Bay Area philanthropies, Tony also served on the board of Pets Unlimited, and is quite involved in many of the fine arts programs. His love and appreciation of fine architecture mixed with his attention to detail has helped establish Anthony as a leading agent.
