Stephen SaffoldSteve spent several years living in Barcelona and Copenhagen and became a believer in walkable, high-density urban living. He enjoys playing a role in projects that make places more vibrant and rewarding.

Steve focuses on off-market opportunities in San Francisco and the Bay Area. His clients, who include institutional multifamily developers and nimble developers of luxury condos, depend on his comprehension of the economics of large development projects, entitlement risk, and the nuances of Bay Area submarkets. Honoring relationships above all else, Steve takes pride in orchestrating partnerships in which everyone benefits.

As Managing Director of Bay Area New Development, Steve’s other role is to articulate how The Agency New Development’s platform means better creative and higher values for developers.

Steve studied Comparative Literature at UC Berkeley.
