Founding Associate + Consultant
Ryan Bakalarski’s jovial spirit lends a warm energy to his life as a real estate consultant in the Bay Area. The fluid combination of his people skills and industry acumen have generated a rewarding career with energy spilling over into each relationship he ignites. A California native, Ryan’s family support system stems up from San Diego into his San Francisco home where he and his wife enjoy the vibrant community within the renowned Marina district. As Founding Associate with Helm Real Estate, Ryan’s passion is strengthened by those around him as they extend unrivalled services to the people they serve.
Ryan finds there is no better way to stay connected to the city he adores then to help people realize their dream of living there. His relationship-based approach keeps his focus narrowed on introducing his clients to their ideal home surrounded by a community that resonates with their personality and lifestyle. He provides services to a rich client base, spanning from first-time referrals to lifelong friends and family, finding no better way to extend his love for the city than to find homes for people who want to enjoy it with him.
After attending UC Davis and receiving a BA in the Sociology of Law, Ryan’s long-time magnetic attraction to living in the City came to fruition, organically leading him into the hospitality industry. Naturally charismatic with a flair for creative conversation, he found himself enthralled with his life as a bartender and restaurateur. After many years, and eager to continue enjoying everything San Francisco had to offer, Ryan gathered his transferable skills and adventuresomely joined the real estate arena where his love for real estate has continued to expand with his experience.
Working with the genuine and innovative team at Helm Real Estate is a contributing factor to Ryan’s dedication of maintaining work/life balance. Their established commitment to improving the quality of life for their clients and team members lets him enjoy taking full advantage of the city’s wide-ranging amenities. Ryan and his wife soak in the city’s diverse culture, landscape and epicurean offerings from taking in shows and frequenting wine bars, to exploring new restaurants on their way down from hiking Mt. Tam.
