Elena Barbagelata was born in real estate - it’s in her blood. She has been a licensed agent for over 23 years. Her father, John, started BarbCo Group in San Francisco over 65 years ago on the foundation of integrity and hard work. He always encouraged his eight children to follow his lead, which motivated Elena to start working in the family business at an early age. There she learned the many aspects of the real estate business, most importantly, how to guide and advise people when dealing with one of the most important decisions of their lives...the sale or purchase of their home.
Elena has been involved in almost every facet of real estate from residential and commercial sales and leases, including trust sales and short sales. Along with her extensive experience as a sales agent, she has also owned and managed various, properties throughout San Francisco, Marin and Sonoma and has personally been involved in the rehab and renovation of those properties.
For the last twenty years, Elena has been raising her three children where they live in Marin. She loves to cook, ski, hang out with family and make music and she really loves to travel. After her college years, she moved to Europe where she spent a few years teaching English to the Italian Air Force and working professionals. While there, she learned to speak Italian and Spanish. When she returned home, she worked as an event coordinator in P.R. and gave her time to working on political campaigns as well. Eventually, all roads let right back to her roots where she felt most firmly planted – real estate!
As her father would so often say, "Aim high", and that's what she does with every client she works with - she shoots for the stars.
