Rick Kaluza

The Personality
415.265.7565 rick.kaluza@compass.com

DRE# 01365486

A lifelong San Francisco Bay Area resident with expansive knowledge of the ever-changing regional real estate market, Rick’s expertise and fierce negotiating skills are matched by a personality that puts clients at ease. His extensive background in multiple facets of the business, from residential to commercial sales, leasing, financing, property management and development, enables him to confidently advise clients on a broad range of real estate needs.

Known for his tenacity and diehard dedication, Rick has earned the respect of his colleagues and clients. He has been ranked a Top 100 agent for Coldwell Banker Northern California and was recruited by the #1 team at Sotheby’s globally before going on to become a founding agent at Compass San Francisco.

The only thing that makes him happier than wins for the Giants, Warriors, or 49ers is when he helps a client reach their personal real estate goals. He calls Cow Hollow home (and playground) with his wife and two kids.

Favorite Listings

4 Clarence Place

This is one of my favorite listings simply based of the unique Modern Industrial architecture. 20+ foot ceilings with dramatic floor to ceiling windows and intricate iron work make it super unique and special property.

1904 Baker Street

This classic pre 1900 Victorian was dubbed 1904 Dream Street being situated on one of the most special blocks in Pacific Heights. The detail throughout is what San Francisco is all about.
