Barbagelata's Leadership Team

My Profile


Real Estate Specialist

The plotting of one's career path typically doesn't start in high school. But for Jaime Watson, a part-time admin job at a real estate office helped shine a light on her passion and set her on the way to great future success. This terrific early exposure to the world of home sales sparked her love of working with people while challenging her analytic side. Today, she understands that each person's unique circumstances coupled with our unpredictable marketplace mean that no two days are ever the same -- and she loves every minute of it (even when she's pulling an all-nighter to ensure the best possible outcome for her clients!).

After earning a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder, she went right into a career with a prominent Seattle broker, assisting in every aspect of the business. Her next move brought her to San Francisco, where for 14 years she has worked in equity research, recruiting and sales.

Today, we are pleased to have her on the team at Barbagelata. As one of the oldest and most respected independent brokerages in San Francisco, we boast over 40% marketshare in multiple  neighborhoods. Because of this, Jaime is positioned to fiercely negotiate for her clients, and learn about new properties and market fluctuations way ahead of the pack.

Whether helping you to identify the right investment, or the right buyer for your home, she will ensure that you are fully informed and educated about the entire process. When you work with Jaime to buy or sell a property, you'll enjoy a seamless, positive experience from beginning to end -- she has made that her singular priority.
