    Meet John Brautovich

    A strategic resource for high-level real estate evaluations, renovations and construction builds. Decades of experience as a contractor inform me. I provide concierge, discreet support, clarity and peace of mind. Vital expertise and resourceful solutions satisfy a wide variety of unique client needs.

    As a successful general contractor and entrepreneur since 1985, I have worked with clients in nearly all of the neighborhoods of San Francisco and many other communities around the Bay Area, California and the country. I see the potential of properties, projects and the bones of a building with a well-developed artistic, creative and practical vision.

    I speak the language of properties. My skills as a tradesman and success as a business owner directly translate to my client advocacy. I¿ve worked in some of the most prestigious properties in San Francisco, as well as large family-owned buildings passed down through the generations. For my clients who require discretion and privacy, I am their trusted confidante. I skillfully navigate the high-intensity markets of real estate, building and renovation.

    My fluency in real estate and my comprehensive understanding of the renovation and building process combine to deliver unique support for my clients. I assess and explain nuance and complexity in an understandable, real-world way.

    Those who have worked with me often speak of me as a calm and insightful listener with a resourceful determination to take action and get things done. I¿m often complimented for clear communication and revealing what may not have been considered. Other compliments have included reliability and persistent focus on getting the outcome for my clients¿ objectives and vision.

    My study of personal and professional development over the course of my life are a valued addition to the strengths I provide my clients.

    What People are Saying About John

    John is exceptional. I initially hired John to untangle a complicated building department issue with my San Francisco property. It took months to deal with all the issues and paperwork, and during the beginning days of the pandemic no less. John¿s deep knowledge and understanding of the building department process was truly miraculous. John was incredibly patient, yet firm and resolved, with everyone he encountered along the process. I felt completely supported by John and trusted his instincts implicitly. He thoroughly explained every step of the process until I clearly understood what was happening. After we had our permit, John referred me to a very competent contractor to do the work. Ultimately, I decided to sell the building and as John is also a real estate agent, I couldn¿t think of anyone better to sell the building. The building sold shortly thereafter at top dollar. In my experience, John is not only a fine person, he is an unmatched and invaluable resource for anything related to building and real estate. Five gold stars!

John listens well and responds with clear explanations regarding how things ar
