Zephyr is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and continues to hold its singular position as San Francisco’s largest independent real estate firm. Zephyr’s retention record is due in large part to its founding broker, Bill Drypolcher, who established the company in 1978. Randall Kostick, President and Chief Executive Officer, has been at the helm for several years and has successfully continued his legacy.

“Zephyr has always stood for vision and integrity, and those are the qualities of agents and staff that we attract,” commented Kostick. “It’s a rewarding and reciprocating legacy that works extremely well.”
