Karim Scarlata’s heart lies in San Francisco. Born in the Dolores Heights neighborhood, he grew up with the city, and although he’s lived in other places over the years, San Francisco has always called him home. He never grows bored exploring the dynamic metropolis and still marvels at its beauty. He’s excited to be part of theFrontSteps team, a group of professionals that match his passion for authenticity, drive to succeed, and love for San Francisco real estate.
Karim is genuinely passionate about sharing all San Francisco has to offer with his family, friends, and clients, and is especially tuned into the vibrant culture and arts scene. He likes the challenges of working in the city’s vigorous real estate market, and his deep-rooted understanding of its unique neighborhoods isn’t something you can find on a data sheet.
To succeed in real estate, you can’t specialize in one skill—agents need to be advocates, educators, collaborators, and problem solvers. Karim’s background in education, non-profit, and video production trained him to wear the many hats his clients need. However, helping others isn’t one of his hats, it’s a core value, and motivates him to be the best agent for everyone he works with.
Karim’s clients come from all walks of life: teachers, artists, community organizers, first-time home buyers, and transitioning owners. He works hard to establish and nurture their trust. Not only do clients come to rely on his expertise, but Karim brightens their experience with charm and a keen sense of humor.
In his spare time, you’ll find Karim sharing his love of basketball and sports with his two sons, who are the lights of his life.
