Rebecca is a dedicated broker and Realtor® with a background in legal studies and real estate finance. Her reputation is one of exceptional customer service coupled with a passion for enriching her clients’ lives through real estate.
She has built her real estate practice on a foundation of absolute integrity and honesty. Rebecca listens to understand and executes to achieve the win-win. She specializes in educating her buyers and sellers on the opportunities and the challenges present at any given time. Her experience navigating cyclical real estate markets has provided the insights needed to best position her clients in competitive situations. Rebecca’s success is a testament to her abilities.
She takes the time up front to thoroughly understand her clients’ specific goals and employs all the necessary strategies to achieve each one. By focusing on the details of each transaction and guiding the process she is able to mitigate what can be a challenging process. Rebecca’s vast network of business associates, vendors, and service providers is another key distinction in her business platform. Out-of-area clients are immediately impressed with her ability to quickly coordinate and prepare their home for market.
Rebecca’s career spans almost two decades and includes property management, financing, development, land sales, and marketing. She believes her very well-rounded experience in various facets of the business has been a key contributor to her success. Attention to minute details, a skill acquired while working as a former paralegal, and her ability to foster strong interpersonal relationships have been the cornerstone of her unique talents and her success as an agent.
She received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Rebecca enjoys traveling and has explored most of Europe and North America. She loves live music, running, and hiking. Living in Sausalito, she makes some time to enjoy the beauty of our Bay Area by hiking the trails of Marin Headlands or stand-up paddle boarding in the Bay.
“Working with Rebecca was an absolute pleasure. I’ve worked with her on a couple occasions now (on both the buyer’s and seller’s side) and will again on my next San Francisco real estate transaction. In both cases, she represented my interests extremely well. During the sale of my home, Rebecca handled every detail while I had to travel out of town during a very short escrow. I didn’t have to worry about anything. Being able to count on her and know that all aspects of the transaction would be taken care of made the world of a difference for me. I highly recommend Rebecca Brooks to anyone that is looking to work with an agent here in SF.”
- Tarryn T., seller & buyer
“We couldn’t recommend Rebecca more highly! She’s thoroughly professional and experienced, meticulously detail-oriented, and an aggressive advocate for her listing. More than that, she’s a genuinely caring person. If we hadn’t known better, we might have thought that ours was her only listing, given the amount of time she devoted to us and her immediate responses to all of our communications. There was never a time during the listing and sale of our condo when we felt she wasn’t on top of things, from marketing to communications to the painstaking details of coordinating with HOA and parking management. She’s a real pro and a thoroughly enjoyable person with whom to work. How good it is to find an agent and a friend in the same person.”
- Richard M., seller
“I started looking for an apartment in San Francisco in August. After a month and and half my first realtor wasn’t able to suggest any places that matched my needs. I was about to give up when a very good friend of mine told me that he found a place thanks to the help of Rebecca. I immediately contacted her and I explained my needs. The first selection of places that Rebecca sent to me had already many interesting options. My first offer for an apartment wasn’t successful but another unit was free in the same building and with the experience of Rebecca I was able to win the bid and get that one. In only 2 months from meeting Rebecca I was able to get my first apartment!
“It was my first time buying an apartment and Rebecca was great! She explained all I needed to know and she was always available for answering more questions in a very clear way. I would definitely recommend Rebecca to my next friend that needs to buy a house and to anybody that needs somebody very experienced, with great communication skills and professionalism!”
- Gianpiero N., buyer
“Rebecca was simply outstanding. She helped me find the home that I wanted and I couldn’t be happier. The communication between us was fantastic. You can tell she knew exactly what I was looking for and the strategy she advised was the right one. She was also super available and very professional in guiding me throughout the process. I have already recommended her to one of my best friends.”
- Andrea I., buyer
“We recently had the privilege of working with Rebecca to find a condo/loft for our 25 year old daughter. Because we do not live in San Francisco, making an expensive purchase (sight unseen) in an extremely competitive market could have been overwhelming and stressful. From the moment we began the process, Rebecca was the ULTIMATE PROFESSIONAL. There was never a doubt that she had our backs! We are now proud owners of a loft. Thank you, Rebecca, for making this transaction happen!”
-Pamela F., buyer
“We couldn’t be more happy with Rebecca Brooks at Climb! First of all, we asked her to do nearly the impossible by selling our condo concurrent with purchasing our new home, but she made the sale happen in record time and got us a great price! She was there for us every step of the way, and there were some rough steps for sure, but regardless she always made us feel like everything was under control and things were going smoothly. Rebecca was also super clear with us when explaining things and answered any questions or concerns with grace and confidence at any time of the day. We would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone!” – Natalia S., seller
“I was very fortunate to have been referred to Rebecca Brooks by Renee Adelman, owner of San Francisco Modern. Renee referred her by saying, ‘She is a really hard worker and will do a great job for you.’ She was so right! Rebecca was amazing in so many ways: she is very pleasant and positive and has a wonderful can-do attitude. Her follow through is timely, and she is knowledgeable and thorough. She did not hesitate to literally roll up her sleeves to help me by painting, shoveling, or sweeping. How did I get so lucky? Her demeanor and negotiating skills helped make for a drama-free showing, sale and escrow, with the house selling in one week for over asking price. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Rebecca is fabulous!”
- Toni L., seller
“Rebecca sized up the local market, we spoke about a fair price (which was the upper end of the range), and I also wanted a quick sale. After her marketing and three open houses in the first ten days on the market, we received an offer at exactly what I wanted from a very qualified buyer. She continued to market and had one last open house and received a back-up offer ‘just in case’ at a higher price point, which gave me comfort. We recorded the close of escrow as scheduled. End-to-end, the entire process was only five and a half weeks. I would certainly recommend both Rebecca at Climb Real Estate and Hilary Davis at Marin Modern–they are a good team.”
- Robert P., seller
“Rebecca Brooks is the consummate real estate agent. From start to finish she was present explaining each step of this unusual and life changing process. Rebecca was transparent and knowledgeable while walking me through the stages. She always made sure I was fully informed so that I could participate and make a confident decision every step of the way. Her expertise made a dream come to life. She was wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her.”
- Roberta G., buyer
“A very good friend referred me to Rebecca. And by refer, I mean he raved about his experience with Rebecca and how she went above and beyond for him. I found every word he said about her to be true. Working with Rebecca was awesome! As a first-time buyer I felt comfortable going through the entire complicated process with her help. From taking me to many different showings and researching comps on properties I was interested in, I felt very well informed at all times. We were involved in a very competitive bidding process and we won! Rebecca kept in close contact with the sellers and put me in a great position to make my offer as attractive as possible. The selling agent even noted Rebecca for her great communication and professionalism. I was thrilled with my experience with Rebecca, and like my friend who recommended her to me, I would happily refer Rebecca to anyone I know.”

What do you love about San Francisco real estate?
The combination of architectural styles and property types: brick and timber lofts mixed with Victorians mixed with luxury high-rises and modern construction. Our vibrant city has amazing and unique homes and I love being able to see and sell all of them.
