"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."
Jaime made our first-time home-buying experience so wonderful and pleasant from the moment we met her. She was very professional and always had our best interest at heart since day 1, not like the horror story agents you hear about that just want to sell you a home regardless of whether or not its actually what you're looking for or the condition of the home. She was also available at all hours of the day. Over a one month period we would receive emails and texts messages from her at various times of the day to check in on us or give us updates, even if the update was that there was no update - which we appreciated so much. Jaime is extremely reliable; that's why we had so much trust in her. Jaime really is the dream agent you want to work with. She's kind, dedicated, and super resourceful. We would not have been able to buy our first home without her help!

I worked with Jaime on the selling and the buying side, both residences in SF. Jaime was amazing. She was very knowledgable of the area and what to look for when buy or selling a place. She worked really hard and was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. She was able to get us well over asking price on the sale of our condo and into a new home in the neighborhood we wanted within a month. I would work with Jaime again in a second.

We worked with Jaime to purchase our first home in an incredibly difficult market. She was a wonderful partner throughout the entire process – from helping us verbalize what we are looking for, to teaching us how to vet homes, to helping us negotiate a challenging bid process. Through all the ups and downs, she was patient, kind, and level-headed. She made us feel like a top priority during our entire search (which was not short!). When we got into some complex territory in the bid process, she didn't have all the answers but she was diligent about using her network to get them. I'd recommend working with Jaime – she's a great realtor and lovely human being.
