Elena Barbagelata


Agent Details

Meet Elena


Elena Barbagelata was born and raised in real estate - it’s in her blood. Her father John, started Barbagelata Real Estate, “BarbCo“, in San Francisco over 70 years ago on the foundation of integrity, honesty and a commitment to excellence. He encouraged his eight children to follow his lead, which motivated Elena to start working in the family business at an early age.
She’s been a licensed agent for over 27 years and knows very well the many aspects of the real estate business. With the heart of a teacher, she has always focused on guiding and advising her clients in one of the most important decisions of their lives...the sale or purchase of their home. She is adept in all aspects of real estate transactions, including single family home sales, multi-family properties, investment properties, 1031 exchanges, divorce sales, trust and probate sales. She is as comfortable working with first-time buyers as she is with luxury clients. Along with her extensive experience as a sales agent, Elena has also owned and managed various properties throughout San Francisco, Marin, and Sonoma and has personally been involved in the rehab and renovation of those properties.
Elena is a 3rd generation San Franciscan, but has called Marin County her home for the past 30 years. San Anselmo is where she raised her three children and continues to live. She loves to cook, ski, run with her dogs, make music and entertain family and friends. She especially loves to travel, and has a great affection for Italy. After her college days, she moved to Europe where she spent a few years teaching English to the Italian Air Force and working professionals. While there, she learned to speak Italian and Spanish. When she returned home, she worked in the hospitality industry and P.R./Marketing for some time, but eventually, all roads led Elena right back to her roots, where she felt most firmly planted – Real Estate!
