About Gil
Gil Payne brings a unique and varied history of success in multiple spheres to his real estate practice and clients. Gil was a Top Producer and management candidate for Prudential California Realty in San Francisco and Sausalito before exiting to begin a restaurant and catering company with his wife. That ten-year hiatus from real estate saw Gil and his wife create two leading SF Japanese restaurants, the second of which, Nombe, was a SF Chronicle Top 100 restaurant and was named a Top 6 national restaurant in its category (Japanese small plates pubs, or izakaya). Though the restaurants have been sold, Nombe remains a popular provider of Japanese cooking classes and catering, including a street food operation that continues to sell Nombe's nationally known original product, the Nombe Ramenburger.

Gil and his wife have lived in SF's Bernal Heights neighborhood for nearly 20 years, so he has a homeowner's perspective and knowledge to help assist clients through the purchase or sale of their home and beyond. Additionally, with an MBA in Strategy and Marketing, and over 15 years of experience in managing and marketing companies in finance, high tech, and healthcare, Gil brings a strong track record of business acumen and success which will make him a strong advocate for his clients, with the knowledge and experience to help make their transactions conclude quickly and smoothly.
