About The Agents

Daniella Brower



I come from a family of builders, architects, engineers, and artists. My earliest memories involve color-sorting electrical wires and arranging tiles soon to be set in mortar. I’ve always been affected by spaces: their flow, light, smell, sound, design, and transformative powers. In spaces, I see and hear stories filled with how lives are lived. The storytelling business is my other love and a mainstay throughout my professional life. Working in documentary filmmaking for decades, has been one of the ways I’ve combined a passion for social justice and art. After building our house from the ground up and selling, then buying a beautiful decaying Spanish-style centurion and re-building again, the combination of my interests in architecture and personal narratives, led me to a career in real estate. I have the privilege of joining my mother, Norah Brower, whose 24 years of dedication, integrity and sterling advocacy for both sellers and buyers in the competitive Bay Area market has always been an inspiration. I believe houses can be vessels for our dreams and reflections and know firsthand both the promises and challenges of creating a space to call your own. I hope you will trust me to guide you through the challenging but ultimately rewarding process of buying or selling a home.
