Local Real Estate Expertise with a Global Reach: Engel & Völkers


Anthony Kwiecien is a lifelong resident of the bay area having grown up in Silicon Valley. After receiving a BA in Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley, Tony spent the next few years living in Japan and traveling through Asia, where he learned to understand the nuances of Asian culture, which is quite beneficial when dealing in real estate in the Pacific Rim.

Upon his return in 1989, Tony opened the Phoenix Gallery in the Presidio Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, a retail art gallery specializing in Chinese antique furniture and accessories while also offering full interior design services. During this time, Tony was able to establish many beautiful relationships with the residents in the neighborhood. In 2004, Tony decided to segue into real estate, with both his degree in architecture and knowledge of interior design making this a natural transition. Working with many clients who recognized his knowledge of the luxury market, Tony was successful in translating this knowledge into many high-end sales, which helped to establish him as one of the top luxury agents in San Francisco.

In addition to supporting a number of prominent Bay Area philanthropies, Tony also served on the board of Pets Unlimited and is quite involved in many of the fine arts programs. His love and appreciation of fine architecture mixed with his attention to detail have helped establish Anthony as a leading agent.
