Myrick Tantiado's primary goal is to offer stellar service to his clients, whether facilitating the sale of their home for top-dollar or the purchase of their dream home. His constant commitment is to ensure his client's needs are met.
Having worked 10 years in medical sales & marketing along with several years in the start-up industry, Myrick utilizes his skills in sales, marketing, and negotiating to achieve positive results for his clients.
Myrick is a licensed California Real Estate Broker and is a member of the San Francisco, California, and National Association of Realtors. He holds a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Biology from La Sierra University.
Prior to that Myrick had served in the United States Navy and had been deployed to Saudi Arabia for Operation Desert Shield/Storm where he received special recognition with a National Defense Medal, Kuwait Liberation Medal & Southwest Asia Service Medal.
Myrick is a native San Franciscan and attended St. Cecilia Elementary School and Sacred Heart/Cathedral College Preparatory School.
Matt McNamara - Chef/Owner Sons & Daughters "Myrick is one of the most thorough and patient people I have ever met. His attention to detail and care that you truly make the best decision regarding where you choose your next home is apparent in all of his actions. His wealth of knowledge regarding SF and in particular the many wildly different neighborhoods that exist within the city of SF is critical to a good choice. Myrick was not only a crucial teammate throughout my 9 month house search but also continued after the purchase to be a resource that I could turn to regarding my new home. For a first time homeowner his participation has been invaluable and I wish him all good things to come and hope to work with him one day again."
Bradley Hazelrigg "If it weren't for Myrick's tenacity, smarts and charm I wouldn't have my new home in the Mission. Finding the property that met my wish list was just the start. Convincing the sellers that my offer was the best option they had - while not even being the highest price offered - Myrick got us into contract. Through the close process, Myrick handled the sellers, their agent, the inspections, and all the details that make a difficult sale come off easy for me."
Susan Sarich & Houston Striggow - Founder & CFO SusieCakes "We met Myrick at an open house that he was conducting for one of his properties. At the time, we were not working with an agent so we took his business card as we admired his skill in presenting his unit and we felt comfortable with his personality. What we liked was that it mattered not that we were going to pass on his particular property. Instead, it was his willingness to help us find the perfect spot for us that got our attention. After an initial meeting or two, we put together a plan outlining what type of properties we were interested in. We then sent Myrick off to work his magic.
Myrick stayed on course and sourced a number of interesting opportunities for us. We also uncovered a few of our own. At the end of the day, we focused on units at a new SOMA condo development. The popularity of the development led us to imagine we were back in 2000 with so much interest in the complex and units flying off the shelf! At first, we missed a few initial key opportunities as others were bidding so quickly on the units. We almost decided to pass but instructed Myrick to let us know if any of the units we were most interested in fell out of contract. Myrick in turn developed a terrific rapport with the sales office and as luck would have it, a unit came up that we loved. Myrick worked feverishly on our part to secure the unit for us before it went on the MLS.
From that point on, Myrick kept us well informed through the offer, contract and closing process, never once letting anything fall through the cracks. If you desire to work with an agent who will work tirelessly on your behalf with your best interest in mind, as well as keeping you well informed on every part of the sales and closing process in SF, we wholeheartedly recommend Myrick. We could not be happier with our SF loft or Myrick's efforts on our behalf!"
Sheila & Ed Cardenas "As first time home buyers, we were initially overwhelmed by the process of buying a home but Myrick quickly calmed that anxiety. He's very patient and responsive and provided guidance every step of the way. Not only did he negotiate a great deal for us, but also provided us fantastic recommendations on local handyman and contractors in the area. He really took care of us from beginning to after we moved in. We would definitely recommend Myrick and would use him again in a heartbeat."
Thomas Ortenzi "My experience working with Myrick began as a casual conversation about how I was perhaps looking to purchase a property with some very specific characteristics. Myrick suggested that I should actually focus more on characteristics different from those that I had first mentioned to him (challenging my reasoning and explaining why the whole time) and then suggested a few properties for me to view. Very low pressure which I liked very much.
I did ultimately take a look at the properties and ultimately decided to put in an offer on one. Myrick helped me weigh the pros and cons of the various properties before making "the" offer. Moreover, the property hadn't even been listed on the MLS, so if Myrick hadn't steered me there, I would never even have known about its existence.
Myrick kept in close contact with me throughout the buying process and there was never any doubt about where we were as we moved towards closing. He pushed me when appropriate, but allowed me to take my time and feel comfortable with the whole process. Managing the buying process is something where Myrick excels and is not afraid to deal with lenders, inspectors, or whomever (regardless of whether or not it is in his "job" description to deal with those individuals) to make sure that things go according to schedule with no surprises.
If this sounds like the kind of personalized attention that you'd like to receive from your broker, then you should get in contact with Myrick right away -- even if, like me, you only have a slight idea of where you might want to head with a property purchase."
Heidi Taglio "Working with Myrick was a pure joy. He made purchasing my home so easy I'm still in awe. He went above and beyond what a typical agent would do. He also has a team that works very closely with him. The whole process could not have been easier or more convenient for me. It was a breeze! For anyone looking to buy or sell a home, or simply seeking great advice on the real estate market, Myrick is your guy. Thank you Myrick!"
Dr. Richard and Penee Feinberg "We recently had the opportunity to purchase a San Francisco condominium using Myrick Tantiado of Alain Pinel Realtors as our agent. We had been searching for an agent and after our first meeting with Myrick, we knew we had found our guy. He made us feel extremely comfortable by way of giving us lots and lots of time, not only to explore a particular property but also in answering a full range of questions.
We both are totally turned off by high-pressure tactics and slick sales tactics. Myrick embodied the complete opposite by focusing expressly on our needs. He listened intently until he truly understood what we were looking for and made sure it fit with our financial situation. After he got to know us, he would offer his own suggestions, but never pressed if we felt it wasn't right for us. Most of the time, his ideas advanced our cause and moved us closer to our goal.
We had never worked with any agent who was so giving of himself and his time. He was present at every step, no matter how small. He organized the process such that everything went very smoothly. He took note of even the smallest matters and promptly followed up on every single item, a truly amazing support service. He has a vast knowledge base of everything related to homeownership and maintenance and continued to amaze us with his pointing to this or that resource.
His commitment to servicing his clients does not stop when the transfer of title takes place. He has remained just as accessible as when the listing was active and continues his follow- up to make sure everything is working out as planned. He made us feel that we were his only clients. . . not really sure how he manages this feat...but we just know that's how it seems to be from our experience.
We would recommend Myrick, with absolutely no reservations, to any prospective buyer or seller. You owe it to yourself to contact him before settling on an agent."
Jeanette Bird "Myrick is professional, honest and perceptive. His keen perception and his willingness to get to know what I wanted in a home allowed him to find for me both the ideal home in the ideal location. At each step in the process of buying a home, I was kept informed and updated, which made me comfortable with my decisions and with my purchase. Born and raised in San Francisco we share a mutual love of the city, the views, the hills and the diverse new communities. I now live in a home which includes all three, a home with a view of the San Francisco hills in the Mission Bay community. As a first time home buyer, I had a wonderful experience working with Myrick and highly recommend him to others in search of their new home."
Eddy & Sabrina Chen "We admired Myrick for really listening to our needs and showing us homes that fit our selective criteria. Myrick's warm personality made the whole process seem effortless. We would definitely recommend Myrick to anyone in the market for a home."
Daphne Ng "Myrick Tantiado is a wonderful real estate agent. He was always on top of everything and made me feel like I was his first priority during the whole process of purchasing my first home. I will definitely be recommending Myrick to all my friends."
Matthew Garced, M.D. "Myrick helped and guided me in the purchase of my first home in San Francisco. He was patient and professional throughout the entire process. Myrick took charge when needed and made going through escrow a breeze. It was a pleasure working with him and I look forward to his help and guidance on future real estate transactions."
Paul Chan "Honest, intelligent, connected. These are the reasons Myrick Tantiado is my agent. Having bought and sold over a dozen properties in the last 10 years, I demand a lot from my agent and Myrick has never let me down. He has my best interests at heart and he anticipates 'what's next' so it's always a smooth experience. He recently helped me purchase a two-unit, tenant-occupied building for a really good deal and navigate through the proper steps in acquiring this property. Myrick not only put me in touch with one of the best real estate attorneys in town but accompanied me to all the appointments to make sure I was well taken care of. He has continued to provide valuable resources and advice well after I had purchased this property, going above and beyond your typical agent. I highly recommend Myrick to anyone."
