Stephen joins The Domicile Team at Compass bringing over 15 years of real estate experience including residential sales, commercial leasing, and retail development. Stephen loves living in San Francisco and enjoying everything the city and the Bay Area offers.
Stephen began his real estate career in New York and quickly became a top producer in his market, closing an average of forty transactions a year. Stephen’s reputation was built by honesty, integrity, and always putting his clients first. After successfully leading the residential markets, Stephen began working as a commercial developer, leading the expansion of a national retail portfolio, working with major retailers including H&M, Uniqlo, Forever21, Victoria’s Secret, Ulta Beauty, and numerous other international brands.
Stephen’s passion for real estate, extensive knowledge of the market, and commitment to client satisfaction is evident in every transaction and interaction. In his free time, you can find Stephen exploring the Bay Area, either hiking the hundreds of scenic trails around SF, sailing the Bay, skiing in Tahoe, or relaxing in Wine Country.
a boutique real estate brokerage in San Francisco established in 2002
Prior to partnering with Compass, Domicile Properties was one of San Francisco’s most successful boutique real estate brokerages. And now, Domicile Properties has teamed up with Compass to provide their clients with the best experience possible: combining the personal touch that defines the Domicile brand, and Compass’ network, support, and technology.
Led by Julie Rogers and Shane Ray and with over 15 years in the San Francisco real estate market, we have a reputation for success, and a track record to prove it.
We handle each and every transaction as a team, so you get the advantage of multiple experienced agents behind you every step of the way.
And while there are lots of other great reasons to choose Domicile, the one that matters the most to us is the simplest: Your business counts here. To each of us. Everyday.
When We Founded Domicile Properties We Had a Few Simple Ideas:
Set high standards
Define good property
Sell only property we love and believe in
Give fearless opinions about value
Treat all buyers equally
Provide a wealth of resources
Provide very personal service to every client
Make it easy even when it’s hard
The buck stops here
Since then our business model hasn’t changed. It works for us, and it works for our clients.
“Stephen helped my husband and I find a home in San Francisco and was absolutely amazing – we would highly recommend him! We met Stephen through another property showing and he helped us navigate the search for a home for ~12 months. He was patient, knowledgeable and detailed – Stephen really treated our home search as if it were his own. In the end, we ended up with a home that we’re thrilled about for a price that Stephen helped expertly negotiate.”
“I usually don’t write reviews, but I absolutely had to for Stephen. My wife and I worked with him to find us a home in San Francisco. Stephen is knowledgeable, experienced and truly professional. The thing I liked the most about him was that he wouldn’t just send us any and all listings that would hit the market like an automated system, as most others would. Rather, he took the effort to better understand our likes and dislikes and would send listings we would truly like and that kept getting better as we got to know each other. He also connected me with a very experienced and senior lender who is helping us with our loan. Small things like this help go a long way and make the whole process seamless.
“We were lucky enough to have Stephen help us through a recent home purchase and couldnt have asked for a better experience. He was friendly, knowledgeable and we always felt like he had our best interests at heart. At closing he also surprised us with several very thoughtful housewarming gifts and followed up to make sure everything was going smoothly with the move. Couldnt recommend Stephen more highly and hope to work with him again!”
