The Avenues Blog was created by Luba Muzichenko, a REALTOR with Zephyr Real Estate, San Francisco’s largest independent real estate brokerage. Luba saw a lack of information about the City’s oft-forgotten western neighborhoods and decided to create The Avenues Blog to fill the gap. Luba works all over San Francisco, but has a soft spot for The Avenues, the part of the City she has always called “home.”
A little more about Luba:
Home seekers and sellers who work with Luba Muzichenko will be thrilled to find an agent with a fresh approach to San Francisco real estate. Luba is down to earth, yet brimming with enthusiasm. She has a terrific sense of humor and sees the joy in life.
Born in the Ukraine and fluent in Russian, Luba moved to San Francisco’s Richmond District with her family at age two. She later moved to the Golden Gate Heights District, and is currently living in a home she rebuilt on the Great Highway in San Francisco’s Outer Sunset District. She is proud to call the City “home”.
Her enthusiasm for meeting new people while providing a positive service led Luba to earn a degree in Hospitality Management from the University of San Francisco. She spent many years in the hotel industry where she developed her keen eye for detail, high standard of service, and an even greater passion for working with new and interesting people. She later moved to the human resource development field where she took pleasure in working with individuals to help them achieve their professional and personal goals.
Her love of the City, and her passion for helping people are what led Luba to choose a career as a REALTOR®. Today, she is serving home buyers and sellers all over the City. By joining the ranks at Zephyr, San Francisco’s largest independent real estate company, Luba fulfilled a longtime interest in real estate. The high-energy pace, the incredible variety of work, and the ability to assist people through what is often a very overwhelming experience keep her passionate about her work.
Luba sees each client as a whole person. She takes the time to get to know you so that she can give you the best advice and provide the best service. This could be doing anything from explaining why a home you love may potentially be your worst nightmare, meeting you in the middle of the night to make a successful offer on the home of your dreams, or helping you achieve a more profitable sale by arranging a loan for you to fix up your property. She understands that a real estate deal isn’t just a transaction, it’s your life.
Outside of work, she volunteers at the San Francisco Zoo, enjoys a variety of outdoor activities including camping, hiking and kayaking, and spends plenty of time showering her dogs with attention. And of course now, she’s blogging all about San Francisco Real Estate, about The Avenues and is the author of The City Update – The Best San Francisco Real Estate Newsletter Ever!
