Yelena Laudati’s ultimate goal is to become your agent for life. She is very much a people person. She is warm, attentive, and punctual. She is a great listener and works tirelessly for her clients, always with a smile on her face.
She is the daughter of immigrant parents who fled the tumultuous region of Odessa, Ukraine in 1989 to create a better life in California. Yelena is the shining example of someone who has made the most of every opportunity and has consistently succeeded in both personal and professional endeavors.
Yelena has a B.S. degree in Business Management. For 15 years she has managed various law firms, where she has played a vital role in operations, client relations, and management. These roles and because of her status as a long-term San Francisco resident and homeowner, she has had the unique opportunity to keep her hand on the pulse of the real estate market, which she has always had a keen interest in and had an affinity for.
As a San Francisco homeowner, Yelena also serves as secretary in her homeowners’ association. She is very familiar with the issues and politics of condominium associations and can provide guidance on HOA matters. She is deeply familiar with the complexities around buying and selling tenant occupied properties, including unwarranted in-law units, and buyouts. She has an extensive network of experts that she can call upon to help her clients with numerous issues, including attorneys, accountants, and contractors.
Yelena is a devoted mother to her three amazing children. She has the remarkable ability to multitask and play many different roles without letting any of those roles slide. Her husband Fabrizio has owned four successful restaurants in San Francisco and currently owns Gia restaurant in Larkspur, which was named after their daughter. Through this partnership and the steadfast support of her husband, she had also observed the impact and changes in the economy through the years and developed an experiential understanding of the robust housing/rental market and business climate of the City.
Yelena speaks English, Russian, and Italian fluently. In her free time she enjoys her kids, her family, her friends, tunes in her favorite music, and dreams about future vacations.
Yelena joined the Climb Real Estate Group team and quickly became one of their greatest assets with a proven track record for success. She helped expand Climb’s reach beyond its South Beach origins into other San Francisco neighborhoods, like Nob Hill, Sunset, and Richmond. As a member of #TeamFast, she employs world class technology and marketing tools, such as virtual tours, home staging, professional photography and videos, and digital marketing campaigns to build up interest around each of her listings. Her personal investment in marketing her properties results in record breaking sales.
Yelena possesses the natural instinct that it takes to be a great agent, but also the varied experience to be able to connect and support clients in a variety of ways. She is definitely someone you want in your corner.
“When my husband and I were looking to sell a house in San Francisco, we checked a few possible realtor options. At the end we went with Climb, and we have to say we were totally glad we did! Our realtor was Yelena Laudati, and she was absolutely wonderful! She gave us advice to prepare our house to put it on the market. Yelena made it easy and made sure we were informed but making our own decisions at every step of the way. She had contacts who were reasonably priced and did good work on a few things we wanted to touch up before listing. She definitely listened to us, and what’s better is that she was good about email and phone communication when that would be faster for both of us and gave us time to read and review info she was giving us before making decisions on pricing, terms, etc. Hopefully I’m not selling/buying again soon, but if I were I’d go with Yelena again. I’d give her 6+ stars if I could.”

“We had been shopping around for our first home for almost a year, and after dozens of open houses and unsuccessful bid attempts, something needed to change. We reached out to Yelena for help, and sure enough we were ringing in the new year in our lovely new loft. We were incredibly lucky to have worked with someone so professional and knowledgeable about the market trends, the neighborhoods, and the types of properties we were interested in. Yelena really took the time to understand our needs, worked with our hectic schedules, and got us a deal of lifetime on our first home. Yelena found us the perfect home, arranged for showing of the property on our terms (before the scheduled open house), and got our offer submitted within hours. By next morning our offer was accepted, the open house was canceled, and we were on our way to becoming home owners. Yelena was there to advise us every step of the way and guide us through the entire process from start to finish. This was truly a great experience. Personable, professional, fast, responsive, and knowledgeable in every aspect of the game, she is an agent that really works with you and for you.”

“We hired Yelena when we were selling our home because she was highly recommended. We owned our home for a very long time. We brought both of our kids to this house after they were born. Emotional attachment was big, to say the least. Yelena helped us through the entire selling process with her hard work, a smile on her face, and a calm and professional attitude. She paid attention to all of our needs and wants. She was always punctual and flexible with us and potential buyers. There were times when we or the buyers had detailed questions she couldn’t definitely answer about construction or staging or escrow; she was quick to get those answers from the pros vs. just giving us a smart answer that might or might not be right. This makes her honest and resourceful. Overall, our family couldn’t have been happier! We highly recommend Yelena! After all, she helped us sell our house for the money we wanted and then some!”

“If you’re looking for a realtor who knows what they are talking about, does what they say they will do, and through everything makes it fun and is patient, Yelena is amazing! Considering buying a home is one of the best and most important investment most people make. Yelena made it super simple and explained everything to us. She can pinpoint what you’re looking for and find you the perfect home. We loved our experience, and I’m sure you will too.”
– Gabriela V.
“Working with Yelena was a wonderful experience. She is very knowledgeable about the various neighborhoods throughout the city and each house we were shown adhered to our specific housing needs. She is a real professional and I highly recommend her services, as she proved her dedication and patience to finding us the right home. We ended up buying in a great neighborhood at a reasonable price.”

“I have been using Yelena as a real estate agent since May of 2014 when I started looking for a house in several Bay Area regions. I have been very pleased with Yelena’s support. She is absolutely fantastic to work with: very knowledgeable, resourceful, proactive, and not pushy. She has been very patiently helping me with my house search for more than a year and has never exhibited any disappointment with the fact that I haven’t closed on a property yet. I am a very demanding customer and Yelena has been able to take my ‘wish list’ to heart and focus on the rare properties that would satisfy my requirements without loosing any motivation. Coincidentally, Yelena did help me close on a condo in San Francisco which I bought for my mother about 8 months ago amidst my own house hunt. She did so in a very professional, courteous, and expeditious manner while working under a tight timeline. I would recommend Yelena as a real estate agent without any hesitation, as I know that she would do a superb job!”
