    24: Adam Betta

    After receiving his real estate license in 1987, this fourth generation San Francisco native worked with buyers and sellers of residential properties in San Francisco. In 1998, Adam created and managed a property management and leasing company called The Highland Group, which partnered with The Grubb Company. Two years later in 2000, he became fully associated with The Grubb Company as a broker associate representing both buyers and sellers. Adam stepped over to the mortgage side of the business for a few years in order to sharpen his knowledge of the lending industry. He returns to brokering with HIGHLAND PARTNERS with more to give to his clients while they are faced with today’s rapid changes. Due to his training and immersion into the many facets of real estate, Adam is able to offer more knowledge and understanding to each of his clients.
    Adam credits his degree in economics from The University of San Francisco ( where he graduated cum laude ) for helping him find the right leverage in negotiations on behalf of his clients. His knowledge of rental property and leasing laws also make him well suited to advise clients in increasing the value of their income properties and homes. His experience in mortgage lending also helps his clients to understand more clearly, the, sometimes complicated loan process and programs.
    Relationships with his clients drive Adam the most. The experience of buying or selling real estate can be a very stressful and emotional process; therefore Adam takes particular care in walking clients through each step. Seeing an elated client signing their final papers is his favorite reward. In addition, Adam’s meticulous worth ethic; enthusiasm, patience and skillful negotiation have made him a favorite resource for current clients and new referrals.
