SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – March 19, 2010 Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the Bay Area’s leading real estate services company, announced today that renowned San Francisco Realtor Malin Giddings ranked as the number one agent for the company in Northern California for sales last year.
Giddings, who works at TRI Coldwell Banker’s Van Ness Avenue office, sold $110.8 million in real estate last year, surpassing 3,376 agents from Lake Tahoe to the Monterey Peninsula. She also ranked sixth nationally for team sales, outpacing more than 100,000 agents around the globe for Coldwell Banker, the world’s largest real estate company.
“Malin is in a league by herself when it comes to luxury real estate,” said Rick Turley, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “She is widely regarded as one of the premier real estate professionals – not just in San Francisco but around the world. We’re very proud to have someone as distinguished as Malin on our team in San Francisco.”
Dawn Ross, manager of TRI Coldwell Banker’s Van Ness Avenue office, said high net worth clients seek out Giddings for a number of reasons. “Clients appreciate her innovative marketing savvy, her sense of style and sophistication, her long track record of success, and her invaluable network of well-healed clients around the globe,” she said. “She is a tremendous asset for discriminating buyers and sellers of luxury homes.”
For the past 35 years, Giddings has consistently been among the top real estate professionals in San Francisco and across the country, with a focus solely on the luxury market. She has sold more than $2.5 billion worth of luxury real estate. In addition, she has been active as a developer and investor, successfully completing numerous projects. Along with her partner Suzanne Brangham, Giddings developed one of San Francisco’s first bed and breakfast hotels, The Jackson Court.
A native of Stockholm, Sweden and daughter of the former president of the Nobel Foundation, Giddings attributes part of her success to her many international contacts. Because of her international experience she is sought after by relocating executives and expatriates. In addition, she is known for her strong design and marketing skills for luxury properties. One slogan that has stuck with her is, “Malin speaks seven languages fluently – Swedish, English, French, German and Location, Location, Location!”
