Serving the San Francisco East Bay since 1998


My name is Brian Santilena and I’ve been a Realtor selling great homes to wonderful people in and around the San Francisco East Bay Area since 1998. I work with COMPASS Real Estate and I am member of the Council of Residential Specialists (CRS).  I am a native of the area and I’ve had the great pleasure of participating in over 375 home selling/home-buying transactions.  

I truly love the East Bay as it is one of the most picturesque, culturally diverse and vibrant areas in the entire country.  I am an expert in the practice of Buying and Selling the residential properties  I operate my business with passion and I have an uncompromising dedication to my clients, many of which have been trusting me for the better part of 20 years.  

My background is in residential construction and I still maintain my California Contractors license with the State of California (CSLB).  I’m a seasoned negotiator offering a unique combination of skills and knowledge.  I maintain a solid reputation in the community that is s supported by a proven track-record and hundreds of happy clients.


The last decade has brought about many changes in the San Francisco East Bay areas.  I stay on top of an ever-changing market and help clients navigate through an otherwise complicated process.  I’ll minimize your stress and maximize your results with an unwavering dedication to being personally involved in every transaction, from the first meeting to  delivering you your keys or home-sale proceeds.  

With the modern advent of “real estate teams”, I specialize in a high-touch bespoke model of real estate services.  While I certainly have a team standing behind me, such as marketing assistants, legal professionals, home prep service providers, stagers, contractors and the like, what you get when you work with me, is ME.  You don’t get passed around from team member to team member.  I pride myself in providing excellent service from agent to client.  Never giving my clients the feeling of being passed around.

A majority of my business comes via personal referrals.  I’m so fortunate to have had many terrific clients that continue to support me and refer me to their friends, neighbors and family.  I deliver consistent results by bringing top dollar to my listings and trusted advice to those looking to purchase a home.  I guide clients through their entire transaction with care, compassion and lots of communication.  Working together I am more than your advocate, I am your fiduciary.   Your unique interests are my Job #1.  

I welcome you to get in touch or to take a minute and see what some of my past clients have to say about me on YELP or Zillow.
