"The real estate business is about building relationships with partners you can trust.  Real estate is not a job but a lifestyle; it's what I do and love to do each and every day. My primary objective is to partner with you and achieve the highest net proceeds as quickly as possible.  Who you work with matters."

Paul Ybarbo, a San Francisco resident since 1995, comes to Sotheby's after 15 years of business development and high level negotiation in technology. He has been representing buyers and sellers for Sotheby's International Realty since 2004.

Paul guides first time buyers; move-up/-down clients; those transitioning to assisted living; investors maximizing ROI; condos & co-ops; single family residences; multi-unit buildings; or 1031 exchanges. He is involved throughout the complex communication channels of offer & sale, title & escrow, through closing.

Paul’s passions extend beyond real estate: travel through Central & South Americas; mountain/road biking; and he enjoys playing classical music on the piano.  He has been a long term supporter of Meals On Wheels.

Paul has an Economics degree from UC Irvine. He is a member of the National Assoc. of Realtors, California Assoc. of Realtors, and San Francisco Assoc. of Realtors.  He has been on several condo boards and speaks Spanish.

His clients are the best testament to his continued activities in real estate: referrals now comprise 90% of his business.
