Transaction Coordinator
Jeffrey was great to work with. He was in top of things and very professional. It was great working with him
Jeffrey made the process of selling my condo very simple. He gave great advice along the way and paid attention to every detail to make sure everything went well. Working with Jeffrey gave me peace of mind.
Mortgage Loan Officer
Jeffrey is always the constant professional and caring realtor that every home buyer needs. He is great at guiding our buyers at every step of the process, with encouragement, constructive and positive feedback, and always looking out for our buyers. Jeffrey is a true gentleman and professional.
Lead Software Engineer
Jeffrey is very patient and welcoming with first time home buyers. I always felt welcome to ask questions that I could not find through research into homes in general and home buying as a process. He gave me an excellent referral for pre-approval, and got to know what I wanted in a home, which led to very good recommendations. He listens very well and helped me narrow down to the perfect condo.

I was impressed with the entire buying experience from there on. He knew exactly what to ask, follow up on, and make sure I did to prevent anything that could come up or delay a close on the unit. I felt very confident with the whole process and knew I was in good hands. I would buy another home with Jeffrey and recommend him to anyone else who is in the market to buy.
Mortgage Advisor
Jeffrey was amazing to work with. He was able to navigate our clients through this crazy market and multiple offers. It was a pleasure working with you. I hope to work together again soon.
As a long time Realtor myself and the listing agent of a condo that Jeffrey Banks represented the buyer, I am very impressed with his experience, knowledge and calm. Coming off a very busy period, off my game, after accepting the offer for his client, I totally relied on Jeffrey to help me keep our transaction on track, as if he was the listing agent, and he handled it like the pro that he is…thorough! I highly recommend Jeffrey as a great choice to represent buyers and seller, and as the agent on the other side of the transaction!
Technical Designer
Jeffrey is such a joy to work with! He is extremely smart, prompt, and kind. Jeffrey was able to answer all my questions about specific properties, neighborhood comps, and market expectations. He has an incredible knowledge of the Bay Area and made my first home purchase a fun experience. Truly made me feel like I had someone in my corner. Thank you so much Jeffrey!
Jeffrey is a complete gem. His thoughtful approach to finding our home provided an experience like no other. Our home tours were fun, expedient, and curated to address our home needs in a very unforgiving market. We could not be more pleased with the results and are so happy we got the pleasure of working with him.
Jeff was referred to us by a mutual friend and a past client of his. Since we had never seen our investment property, we needed someone that would be able to get it ready to sell since we would be completely hands off during the entire process. Jeff coordinated with inspections got us quotes for haulers, cleaners, painters, wood floor contractors, and home furnishing stagers. While doing all of this he put our property on Compass Coming Soon and found us, home buyers, before it went to market. We had received multiple offers while off-market and before any work started. Jeffrey took time to explain our choices of accepting one of the off-market offers or doing the work to get it ready for market, put it on the market then set an offer date. We decided to work with one of the offers received and moved forward with one. Before we could close Jeff had us talk with a tax accountant since we were foreign owners. He also handled everything with our neighborhood homeowner association so that the transition would be smooth. Unfortunately our sale was happening as the world was shutting down due to COVID-19. Jeffrey kept checking daily to secure an appointment for me and my husband at the US Consulate here in Shanghai. Everything had shut down due to COVID-19, we weren't sure if we would be able to complete the sale due to the shutdowns. Jeff and his team helped advise us through the entire process even as things kept changing due to coronavirus. We were able to close almost a month past our expected date (2 years ago today) thanks to the hard work that Jeff and his team did to keep us on track. The buyers and their agent were patient and well informed during the entire process. We highly recommend Mr. Banks for all your real estate needs.
Bay Area real estate is ruthless and confusing. You need a professional as knowledgeable and dedicated as Jeffry on your team. He often pointed out potential issues in properties that we would not have noticed or known to look for. In all of our interactions, we always felt like his top priority. He is professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I could not recommend him enough to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Bay Area.
Real Estate Agent
Jeffrey and his team of professionals were a dream to work with. Timely, thorough, and communicative, he contributed to this being a seamless transaction. Thank you for a great transaction, Jeffrey!
Jeffrey did an amazing job helping me find my second home in SF.

He worked tirelessly for the last year, scheduling full days of tours on the weekends since open houses were unavailable due to COVID-19 restrictions at the time.

He followed up with listing agents regarding questions I had and reached out for disclosure packages for properties of interest immediately.

He ensured that I saw available inventory, and we re-visited several properties to make sure they were right for me.

He also made sure I was comfortable on the offers/contingencies I put in for each property, despite the competitive marketplace.

And when I finally got into contract, he made sure that all outstanding issues with the property were addressed and that I closed on schedule.

I'm grateful for all he has done to get me into my new home, and would highly recommend him as a realtor to prospective clients.
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. Thank you 1,000 X
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!
