History of Brannan

McGuire Real Estate has been an integral part of the San Francisco Bay Area real estate scene for over 90 years.As a mid-sized, regional boutique, McGuire specializes in luxury real estate, and applies the highest standards of service to properties in every price range and to every client, including the unique loft properties we have represented since 1992.
McGuire Real Estate holds it’s roots in South Beach via it’s acquisition of Lofts Unlimited and Urban Bay Properties. Lofts Unlimited was founded in 1992 and was the first real estate company in the Bay Area to specialize in lofts. The Lofts Unlimited website was one of the first real estate websites in San Francisco, and they were the first company to open an office in both San Francisco’s South of Market and Oakland’s Jack London Square districts. With the experience of successfully negotiating the sale of thousands of lofts in San Francisco, Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley, San Rafael and Sonoma, Lofts Unlimited developed a reputation in the area for being the loft brokerage of San Francisco. As their success continued and the company began to grow, the brokerage saw an opportunity to expand. Ray Kaliski, in cooperation with Tom Brown, formed Urban Bay Properties (www.ubayp.com) which for nearly a decade maintained the reputation as the premiere real estate brokerage for the Bay Area’s urban-style properties, before being acquired by McGuire Real Estate.
In 2009, acknowledging the strength of it’s presence in South Beach and South of Market communities, McGuire Real Estate acquired Urban Bay Properties.  Now even after the merger, both Lofts Unlimited and Urban Bay Properties have a very loyal following of local residents who recognize the strength of the brand and the history of the firm in the community.
With a history of presence and success, McGuire Real Estate, specifically represented by Eric Turner, provide the best representation possible for Buyers and Sellers.
