our pilosophy


Our Mission is to assist buyers and sellers of residential real estate in accomplishing their goals through exceptional and unmatched customer service. We plan to accomplish this through outstanding market knowledge, unparalleled levels of communication, and an unwavering commitment to excellence in all facets of the residential real estate business.



The Japanese have a term called Kaizen which can be translated as “continuous improvement”. It is our commitment to ourselves and the people that we work with to continue to evolve, grow, and improve every facet of our business to ensure we are performing at the highest possible level at all times. Nothing remains static, including business, so we must change and adapt with it to ensure that we stay at the top of our game at all times and most importantly, providing the best client service in the industry.


Simply put, integrity is doing what you said you were going to do, when you said you were going to do it. We understand that we are in the relationship business, and to maintain a strong positive reputation in our community we must serve people in a way that reflects our ideals of honesty, and doing business in an ethical manner. What goes around, comes around, and our goal is to be the gold standard when it comes to integrity in the real estate business.


A real estate transaction is often times the single most stressful period in a family’s life – we find that it doesn’t have to be that way. Our objective in every sale is to minimize the amount of work our buyer’s or seller’s have to do and take it upon ourselves – that’s why you’re hiring a professional realtor. Because of our experience and commitment to excellence we have developed checklists and systems to ensure maximum efficiency and effectiveness in achieving your goals.

What the Polyak Real Estate Group can do for you

During the sale of your home, we will be there every step of the way to ensure that you receive top market price, and the entire process moves along as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our San Francisco Bay Area real estate market expertise allows us to determine an optimum pricing strategy so your property will sell. We dig deep to learn the unique selling points of your property and neighborhood, so our marketing strategy effectively targets and attracts the right buyer for your home.

find your next home

When buying a house you need someone who will represent YOUR best interests – not their own. Before we even start searching for your home we learn about you and your needs, and what’s most important to you. During the home buying process, we will help guide you from the very beginning when choosing which home to write an offer on, to handling inspections, negotiating the best possible price and terms, delivering the keys to your new home at closing and assisting you with your move.
