As a military dependant, Evan Bliss has traveled and lived in many parts of the world. Working in the airline industry, his wanderlust and desire to learn about new cultures and people continued for over 10 years. When it was time to settle down, he chose to make the San Francisco Bay Area his permanent home.
After graduating from the University of the Incarnate Word, Evan pursued his passion for marketing and advertising. By carefully and thoughtfully helping each of his clients reach and exceed their goals, he believes that what sets him apart from other real estate agents is his desire for the highest level of customer care. Having worked in the service industry, Evan sees the opportunity for each new buyer or seller as an opportunity for a lifelong relationship.
Evan has an always-present and ever-growing passion for architecture and design. For the last few years, Evan has brought his sales and marketing experience along with his internet savvy to the business of buying and selling homes.
These diverse work experiences, combined with his specific skills for achieving successful results for clients while recognizing the importance of strict confidentiality, have helped to prepare Evan for the challenges of today’s demanding real estate market. What drives Evan the most is his ability to assist clients to fulfill their dreams.
“Evan was a pleasure to work with. His knowledge of the local San Francisco market is exceptional. He knew all the ins and outs of what is required to make the right offers in the extremely competitive market. Evan responds very quickly and accurately over email or the phone. Even though he has lots of clients, you always feel like you have his undivided attention. He set up many viewings for our picky taste quickly and when they worked for us.”

”Evan helped my wife and I sell our Hayes Valley condo this past summer. It’s a hot neighborhood and we were concerned about how best to fetch top dollar for our investment. We interviewed several realtors but ultimately selected Evan Bliss. Evan brought such a great energy to the sale, personally ensured that all aspects of the sale were accounted for, and, most importantly, set new records in the neighborhood for comparable sales. My wife and I were extremely impressed and very fortunate to have worked with Evan during the sale of our most important asset. We’d highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Bay Area.”
– Nick and Monica O.
“My wife and I were looking for a home in the competitive San Francisco market but Evan was totally up to it. He found us something that has excellent value, appealed to our taste, and something we believe will continue to appreciate in value in the years to come. Working with him was a great experience since he was responsive, helpful, and followed up on his promises very promptly. We recommend him unreservedly.”

“Evan is fantastic! My husband and I spent several months looking for a condo in SF and submitted three unsuccessful bids prior to securing our new place with our fourth bid. For our previous bids, we had worked with the selling or listing agent. In this case, Evan was the listing agent for our condo, and from the moment we met him, it was evident that his attention to detail was unmatched.
“Throughout the process of bidding, being in contract, financing, and closing escrow, he kept us constantly informed of every pertinent detail. He gave realistic advice about our bid to make sure it was competitive but not too high. His recommended lender turned out to be a fantastic partner with the best rates we had seen. With every major decision, Evan presented us with clear options, gave his suggestions, and then talked through the pros/cons of each decision, never being pushy, impatient, or disinterested.
“Evan cultivated our trust through his expertise in San Francisco real estate, his timely communication, and his care for our well being. I am 100% confident recommending Evan to anyone interested in buying a place in San Francisco.
- Great communicator
- Knowledgeable of the buying process end-to-end
- Genuinely interested in ensuring we’re completely happy”
– Dara and Justin Elliott
“Evan helped me find my first home with my husband last summer. As with most first-time home buyers, my expectations were high with a long list of ‘needs.’ I’ve lived in San Francisco for almost 10 years as a renter, and know most neighborhoods well. We knew exactly where we wanted to be and what sort of lifestyle we were looking for. As many San Franciscians know, the neighborhood in which you reside shapes your daily routines, social life, and health habits. Evan understood what we were looking for and even helped us further shape our needs as we went through each listing he found for us. In the end, Evan helped us get into a new development with a long waitlist. He tirelessly followed up with the sellers each week as we continued our search in parallel. At the 11th hour, when we were ready to make an offer on another property, he reminded us of the waitlist property and suggested that he check on our status one last time before submitting. I don’t know how he did it, but that same day we were told that we got picked from the waitlist. Thanks to Evan, we are in our dream home!”

“Evan did a great job helping my wife and I find and purchase our first home. It was also our first time living in San Francisco so we had lots of questions and requests. Evan was always by our side throughout the home buying process and always had an answer to our many queries. Evan was relentless in his push to get our home closed by our target date. It was very reassuring to know that Evan was following up on all the minute details and making sure everything was on track. He truly provides a level of service which is a cut above most real estate agents. Thanks again Evan!”
“Thanks for your help and hard work in the past two months. Literally, you work 24 hours a day. So you are always there when we need you, even at midnight. We really appreciate it. We are so happy working with you. Thank you! :)”
– Mike & Ivy
“Evan has a passion for San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area, a passion for real estate, and a passion for connecting individuals, couples, and families to their next home. He is–in short–the ideal agent. Evan is a consultant in the process, seeking to learn more about me before showing properties, and his knowledge about San Francisco and the nuances of the housing market therein allowed him to truly customize the search; this empathy and education I particularly appreciated, being new to the Bay Area. I look forward to continuing to work with Evan, and would recommend him without hesitation to others seeking a new home in metro San Francisco and the surrounding communities.”
– Jessica L. Henry
“We worked with Evan when looking for a home to buy in the Bay Area. Although we originally looked in East Bay, we found a place in Foster City that we really liked. We purchased the house while we were on vacation in Hawaii. It was really nice that Evan is completely set up to work with clients remotely and in different time zones. Almost all of our documents were signed electronically, making the whole process very smooth. Overall, we are really happy we worked with Evan. Home buying can be fun and frustrating at the same time. Evan made the the whole process easy.”

“Evan and Gregg helped my wife and I to find our new home. I can literally say that we never would have found our place without them. Evan is relentless and seems to be working around the clock on your behalf. Evan works closely with Gregg Onzo and the two couldn’t complement each other any better. Gregg is extremely knowledgeable about the industry and provides a level of comfort throughout the process. Evan and Gregg were very attentive and listened to our ‘must haves.’ They vetted each and every property we visited in advance to validate it was a good fit before visiting.
“A new home search can be an exhausting and emotional journey. We always felt taken care of with Evan and Gregg. They made the process of finding our new home an enjoyable one while offering expert advice along the way. I would recommend Evan and Gregg to anyone looking for a home in the Bay Area. They provide a level of service that was simply absent in my previous real estate transactions.”
– Monica and Nick Opderbeck
“Evan did a great job representing a buyer for whom I provided financing. Throughout the process he was helpful and professional. He had a very thorough understanding of what I required in order to do my job with the greatest efficiency, and he assisted me in making it come together.”
– Rob Spinosa, RPM Mortgage
“Evan did a terrific job helping me purchase a home in the city in under 4 months and for below listing. He got to work immediately and consistently sent me new places to check out in addition to setting me up with a great loan agent and ensuring the process was constantly moving forward. Evan always brought a lot of energy and asked the right questions to ensure I received pertinent information and other interesting tidbits about the property that would help me make decisions about which homes to pursue and negotiate final figures. Whenever Evan was unavailable, he provided ample warning and ensured that his colleagues were there to help me and answer any questions in his stead. After closing, he purchased several water filters for my fridge and followed up multiple times to see how things were going and to see if I needed any references for general contractors, painters, etc. Evan takes the time and energy to provide the top-notch service you hope and expect from a real estate agent. Thank you again, Evan!”

What do you love about San Francisco?
The city's easy way of accepting every different personality and culture. The city has a "why would you want to blend in when you were born to stand out" attitude, and I love it.
