Meet Bernadette

Experience You Can Trust

Bernadette Lamothe has lived in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco for over 35 years, giving her an in-depth knowledge of the city’s diverse residential markets. She has also represented numerous sales of estate properties in Hillsborough.


Bernadette began her career in real estate in 1990 and is a founding member of the Sotheby’s International Realty office in San Francisco, which opened its doors in 1996. Her solid reputation throughout the City and the Peninsula gives her clients a distinct competitive advantage – from initial consultations and pricing decisions, to marketing strategies and closing negotiations. Whether representing buyers or sellers, Bernadette’s extra efforts and passion for her work translate to a successful real estate experience. 


Bernadette has a Bachelor’s degree in architecture and interior design, and a minor in art history. She has always had a love of art and design, which has translated to an active involvement in several of San Francisco’s visual and fine arts organizations, including time volunteering and working with docents at the DeYoung Museum and Legion of Honor. She is conversant in French and German and her extensive travel background frequents Europe in addition to experiences in India, South East Asia, Africa, and South America.
