Founder | Real Estate Consultant
Tess Pollitz has continued to grow her reputation over the past two decades and is known as a hands-on, responsive agent that provides outstanding guidance and results. She’s among the top 1% of real estate agents in the San Francisco Bay Area and has closed hundreds of homes. Most of her buyers and sellers come through referrals, as previous clients are quick to praise her service, commitment, and willingness to stay in communication throughout the process.
With her significant experience in preparing and flipping properties, Tess brings professionalism, enthusiasm, a unique perspective, and problem-solving skills to the table as she helps her clients navigate the complex real estate market. Tess also brings a keen eye for design, creativity, strong negotiation skills, and solid project management to each transaction, which gives her clients a distinct advantage. Her deep understanding of the local communities and neighborhoods enables her to identify issues and negotiate the best deals, and she utilizes top technology and marketing tools for both buyers and sellers.
“There is no greater feeling to experience in real estate than handing over a key to a buyer for their new home or sharing the excitement and anticipation with the sellers when their home has been Tessellated: ready to go on the market for the big reveal — prepped and staged.”
Tess and her team have solid experience in staging and designing homes, and she has a consistent record of preparing and selling homes for top dollar in eight days or less. In fact, she’s regularly ranked among the top five agents in the region for fewest days on the market, and her sales-to-list price ratio, a figure that expresses how much a home sells for, is consistently higher than other top-producing agents in her area — so much so that they often contact her to ask for her secret.
But it’s not just Tess’ expertise and ability to achieve results that defy market trends that keep her clients coming back. Tess understands that buying or selling a home is an exciting and draining experience, and she takes the time to ensure people understand their options so they can make confident, informed decisions. Most importantly, if Tess gives advice, it’s based on factual information, extensive research, and detailed market and pricing analyses. And if Tess tells you she’ll do something, you can rest assured that it will be done.
Tess also has a drive for excellence, which has pushed her to continue her real estate education. In addition to her extensive knowledge of the local market, Tess is an Accredited Buyer’s Representative® (ABR®) and Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®). Many of her clients are moving up or downsizing in the Bay Area, and she also works with luxury estate owners, first-time homebuyers, and investors.
Her family is her life, and Tess and her husband take joy in watching their three children pursue their own passions. Her sincere desire to help others means that Tess can often be found volunteering at food banks and soup kitchens, and in her free time, she enjoys traveling, cooking, renovating homes, and hiking in the beautiful Bay Area.
