Tal Klein

Founder, Broker Associate

With over 21 years in luxury real estate sales, Tal Klein knows the San Francisco real estate market. She’s also consistently ranked in the top 3% of SF agents. But those are only two of the many reasons Tal’s clients feel safe entrusting her with the biggest sale of their lives. Tal brings a thorough knowledge of economics, strong eye for value, and creative approach to remodeling opportunities. But most importantly, Tal uses her keen instincts for discerning her clients' needs to make what can be a stressful and overwhelming process exciting and rewarding. With her broad industry experience, skill, and reputation, she produces results her clients expect and deserve.

Originally from Israel, Tal moved to New York City with her family as a teen. She has an undergraduate degree from Williams College and an MBA from the University of Colorado, where she also studied architecture, design, and land use. 

Before embarking on her real estate career, Tal spent many years working in sports marketing and as a Silicon Valley tech executive, curating skills in business and partnership development, operations, and marketing. But Tal’s greatest passion has always been real estate. She recalls watching her mother remodel and flip homes. It was then that she realized her ability to visualize their outcomes while still in the “before” stages.

After launching her real estate career, Tal quickly became one of the top three producers at her then-brokerage. In 2017, she left to start her own brokerage firm, Tal Klein Real Estate. She is a founding member of SF Insiders, an exclusive networking circle of Top Agents who share off-market listings.

Having bought and remodeled several homes of her own, Tal's ongoing relationships with architects, contractors, and developers continue to direct her work developing and marketing unique properties throughout San Francisco. Tal uses her experience and connections to creative industry professionals to seamlessly do what gives her the most joy — locating the ideal fit for her buyers and maximizing each home’s potential for her sellers. She’s extraordinarily good at it, too: Tal’s listings consistently sell quickly and for well above the average sale price. 

Tal lives in the Sunset District with her husband and son. She and her family support numerous local organizations that encourage public access to local outdoor space, including the San Francisco Bike Coalition, Great Highway Park, Friends of the Urban Forest, and the Golden Gate Tennis Center. An avid lover of the outdoors, Tal can often be found surfing, wing foiling, biking, and just enjoying every glorious day San Francisco's Ocean Beach has to offer.



Tal loves to win. And more importantly, she loves to win for her clients!

Tal is able to get her sellers the best possible price and her buyers what they want in a variable market. Her results speak for themselves: Her listings sell swiftly, with multiple offers and for well over the average sales price.


Tal is known in the industry for preparing properties meticulously for sale, covering every detail thoroughly so that her clients encounter no surprises. She deftly negotiates the best outcomes for her clients. She excels at making deals happen, organizing and leading complex projects, and driving profit.

She’s known for her INTEGRITY.

Tal is a hardworking straight-shooter with a well-earned reputation as a fair and honest professional. Her clients appreciate her direct, honest approach to making their dreams come true.
