Jeffrey was exceptional in guiding me through the process of buying my first home! Every question, concern, and problem was addressed promptly without fail. He made the entire homebuying experience effortless and always made sure I was comfortable at every step.
Sales Manager
Great transaction closed with Jeffrey Banks. Communicated effectively and was fantastic to work with!
Jeffrey helped us on the front end of a 1031 exchange sale, selling an SF duplex. There were a number of things to consider for the sale but through the entire process it was Jeffrey’s experience, professionalism and dedication to us that gave us a sense of security and made us confident that we could not have had better representation.

Director of Development
Jeffrey helped me purchase my first condo and, after 14 years of living in rent-controlled apartment in SF, he did an amazing job at listening to my needs, talking me through the process, and being patient with my anxieties and ignorance. He helped me make a competitive offer and get a wonderful new home...without breaking the bank! He's the best.

Jeffrey Banks is both an outstanding real estate agent and an exceptionally kind and encouraging person. Jeffrey turned the dream of purchasing my first home into reality, and did so with unwavering grace and patience from start to finish.

More specifically, I met Jeffrey in 2017 when I was attempting to buy a Below-Market-Rate condo in San Francisco. To my amazement, Jeffrey stood by me through nine unsuccessful BMR lotteries and eventually helped me find the perfect condo on the peninsula. Through all the ups and downs over these past four plus years, Jeffrey never failed to give me accurate information on every potential purchase as well as honest advice and hope. Although Jeffrey may normally deal with high-end home buyers, he always made me feel like a top client despite my income restrictions. Simply put, Jeffrey is a wonderful human being who brings class and compassion to the real estate profession. In my book, Jeffrey Banks is a 10/10!
Sr. Loan Consultant
Working with Jeffrey to help our mutual clients purchase the home of their dreams was an incredible experience. He was professional, efficient, always open to communication, and handled our entire transaction in such a caring manner. Jeffrey certainly exceeded all my needs as a real estate partner and I cannot wait to work with him again. Thanks so much Jeffrey!
Human Resources Analyst
Jeff was very patient, empathetic, and had a very positive attitude during the entire sale process. Our situation had a lot of moving parts and Jeff was very informative and he was always ready to explain each step for us to understand. Jeff was very transparent in determining strategy for our best interests. When the direction had shifted, Jeff had quickly adjusted and was flexible to our sense of urgency. Jeff made this process very smooth.
Jeff Banks was OUTSTANDING. He helped my family sell our family home and was very patient with us as we were thinking about selling and then not and then selling. We probably put him through a whirlwind but he was always patient and understanding about us letting go of our family home that we had for close to 40 years. Even through this pandemic he made the process so easy that we didn’t have to do much but leave the house empty and he took care of the rest. Looking forward to working with him again.
We were very lucky to have Jeffrey lead us in the search for our home. He’s professional, patient and the best at what he does!! We would trust him again and again!
Jeffrey is amazing and one of a kind. Not only is he knowledgable and professional, but he cares for his clients. He watched out for my best interest when representing me as the agent. He found me a place I can called HOME. There were complications with the loan process, he went out of his way to help and follow through each and every step. In the end, not only did we closed on time but EARLY!!

Highly recommending Jeffrey to anyone looking for agent.

Having Jeffrey as an agent was such a blessing. He is kind, patient and explained the process to me as many times as I needed. As a first time home buyer I had many questions and uncertainties but he was there to guide me and my family along the way.
He helped guide us through difficult moments or bumps along the way and maintained his sweet, positive demeanor which allowed us to remain hopeful, until we found our home!

It was a pleasure working with Jeffrey. He is a true professional, communicated well and I look forward to working with him again soon.

Sales Manager
Worked with Jeffrey for a while now and he always does a spectacular job representing his clients and staying on top of all the details that come along with his varied transactions. Always a pleasure to see him again.
Jeffrey was amazing! We started looking for homes in August and closed on one the following month. He was able to guide me through the process as a first time home buyer, and he made it seem so effortless! I definitely recommend him.

Jeffrey was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very upbeat, professional, thorough, and respectful during the entire transaction. You can easily see that Jefferey cares very much about his client's needs, and is willing to go above and beyond to make them feel right at home.
VP of Mortgage Lending
Jeffrey is one of a kind! I've worked with several top agents in SF and the bay area but this gentleman knows real-estate and goes above and beyond. As a lender, things get extremely busy. Jeffrey is a HUGE TEAM player and supporter. Just when I am emailing the borrower an update, a text pops up from Jeffrey to the borrower with an update. He is on it!!
Jeffrey takes the time to understand his clients needs and help them find the beautiful home they are looking for.
It has been a pleasure to work with Jeffrey and I look forward to may more smooth and quick transactions.

It was a pleasure working with Jeffrey on the sale of my 2-unit property in San Francisco. I had never worked with a real estate agent before, but Jeffrey was patient and easy to communicate with. He was mindful of all COVID-19 restrictions and helped me to sell my property in a timely manner even though public showings were limited.
Jeffrey sold a family home for my mom in San Francisco. Jeffrey was very kind and understanding and realized that my mom was selling the home following the sudden death of her sister. I thought Jeffrey was very effective at navigating the showing of the property given coronavirus restrictions. He also kept us informed every step of the way.

Great transaction, Jeffrey was easily reachable, very responsive and did exactly what he said he would. Would love to work with him again.

Jeffrey is a wonderful realtor. He just successfully sold my cousins two unit building in San Francisco during these difficult times. About 10 years ago, he successfully helped me to purchase my first piece of property. He is humble about his accomplishments, but I can say with complete confidence that he is top real estate producer in San Francisco which is not easy.

I. Love. My. New. Home!

I am thankful to have had Jeff by my side through the entire process.

Purchasing the right home was not easy. Sure, we could have settled for a home, but we found OUR home!

We’ve went through the process of being outbid, listings that fell apart, and lack of inventory. Jeff, per usual, was optimistic and kept everything in perspective.

I truly felt so defeated with all the speed bumps that we encountered. Truth be told, I even told my husband, if we don’t get this home, I give up.

I firmly believe that without the expertise and experience of Jeff, everything would have fell apart (including me). Jeff has truest mastered his craft, because he genuinely cares about all his clients and loves what he does.

You can take that to the bank.

Thank you, Jeff!
Account Executive
While I’ve known Jeff for many years, this is my unbiased opinion.

He has always treated his clients well. With the purchase of our new home I wouldn’t have gone with any other realtor.

Jeff is very professional and very seasoned. Which are what I believe to be two paramount aspects when choosing a realtor. During the buying process it becomes more evident that my statement holds true. While I don’t want to bag on other realtors, I can wholeheartedly say I had an Ace up my sleeve.

While buying a new home, the process can seem daunting and exhausting, Jeff was there for us through the entire process, day and night.

If anyone ever looks for a realtor, I would definitely refer them to Jeff!

Mr. Banks was, in a word, sensational. From the moment the contract signed to the signing date he was incredibly on top of everything. Jeffrey was remarkably responsive and engaged which helped to mitigate several unforeseen challenges along the way. His teamwork and professionalism was the driving factor in allowing us to close the loan early. I cannot recommend enough.
