The History of Barbagelata
Barbagelata was founded by John Barbagelata in 1952 and continues to provide San Franciscans with expert real estate advice and results. The Barbagelata name has been imprinted on the city since Giovanni Barbagelata immigrated from Torriglia, Italy in the 1870s. He and his wife settled in North Beach and began building the family reputation. That reputation still stands.
Giovanni's grandson, John Barbagelata, grew up understanding the value of honest work and strong traditions. He passed that understanding on to his son, Paul, and his daughter, Anna, who are proud to sustain the traditions that have made The Barbagelata Company a continued success. Barbagelata is stronger than ever, family owned and family oriented for over fifty years. We have survived as an independent business in an age of mega-mergers and real estate franchise acquisitions by doing what we do best, build lasting relationships with each client. We've maintained these bonds for generations. We connect buyers and sellers of real estate by connecting with people.
At Barbagelata, we offer unparalleled expertise by combining traditional service with contemporary marketing techniques. Our agents represent the diverse backgrounds of San Franciscans. They understand the values that have kept Barbagelata the best neighborhood brokerage in The City. Let us open the door to your San Francisco home.
