Steve Pratt (CA Lic. No. 01952065 and CA Appraisal Lic.

Mr. Pratt has developed his real estate career throughout the Bay Area over the past 15 years.  Most recently he was an Investment Sales Associate at Marcus and Millichap, where he focused on office buildings and other commercial properties in the East Bay.  Prior to that, Mr. Pratt built and managed a Real Estate Appraisal firm that provided valuations of single family homes and investment properties in Marin, Sonoma, and Napa Counties.  Mr. Pratt also spent time with a private equity firm that acquired and managed multi-family buildings in San Francisco.  All of his real estate experience is built on top of five years of intense capital market exposure as an equity derivatives trader and portfolio manager on the Pacific Exchange and on many years of firsthand experience with his own real estate investments.
