Gary Cohen specializes in investment and land sales across the Bay Area, working closely with landowners, developers, and investors. Gary has devoted a considerable amount of time partnering with San Francisco City agencies and the non-profit community, counseling them on various real estate matters and procuring properties on their behalf.
With more than 38 years of experience, Gary has earned a well-deserved reputation for handling complex transactions and is well respected among his colleagues and clients. He joined Kidder Mathews in 2020 after spending 28+ years at TRI Commercial, where he consistently distinguished himself as top producer.
Gary has also been a developer in San Francisco for 30 years, having acquired land, entitled, and sold developments consisting of 300+ units. His San Francisco development knowledge gives him a real leg up over other broker/agents, giving his clients a significant advantage.
Gary is passionate about giving back to his community, leading the way with commercial endeavors that empower neighborhoods and philanthropic initiatives to raise money for the disadvantaged. His on-going support on behalf of non-profit affordable housing developer, the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation; raising significant funds and dogged five-year quest to acquire 500 Turk Street, is a perfect example of Gary’s tenacity and community-focused approach.
