We bring to each client our extensive knowledge and unique blend of San Francisco community, culture, and industry expertise. We have built our reputation by establishing long-term relationships with our clients based on trust and high ethical standards. We are about making the process of buying or selling your home a great experience. We make it our business to understand what each client’s wants and needs are when buying or selling a home so, it’s no surprise we’ve held a place among the Bay Area’s top real estate companies since 1965.

Superior customer service is key.
We believe in adapting our service to meet our clients’ needs. Whether you’re a Buyer or Seller, our team is dedicated to guiding you through the process. We know that this is a stressful time in a buyer or seller’s life and that’s why we have Bernie Katzmann and Mike Shaw who not only know how to get the job done, but also believe in making the experience more comfortable and accessible. At Herth we are here to guide you on the industry’s best practices, as well as give you a hands on experience to meet your individual needs.

It’s no secret that real estate has seen its share of ups and downs, so more than ever, buying and selling a home needs a sophisticated skill set. We are honored to be a part of such an important event in your history. All of us at Herth are trained to be there for you. With extensive knowledge of the profession and high ethical standards, we take the stressful complexities off your hands.

At Herth we aren’t just real estate, we’re helping build your lifestyle.
Our long-term relationships have been established one client at a time. Based on the philosophy of our founder, Ray Herth: “The business of selling or buying a home should be placed in the hands of real estate experts who are a part of the community.” Bernie and Mike are proud to call San Francisco home and we understand the climate and culture of each individual neighborhood, sharing with our clients the diverse assets of each unique community.

In 2004, Herth Real Estate opened its doors to our second office in the Northern California Wine Country region. Known simply as “Herth Wine Country”, this office took virtually no time to establish itself as one of the leading brokerages in the area. Within one year, Herth Wine Country had gained a significant market share and earned a fine reputation. Located in downtown Guerneville, this office displays the same warm and friendly atmosphere found in our San Francisco location. Our skilled sales associates are all local to the area, and are well versed in the intricacies of buying and selling real estate in the Northern California Wine Country region.

At Herth, we excel at providing real estate services that are as unique as you.
