Joseph Gartland Moore is a recognizable force in San Francisco’s luxury real estate market. He’s been at it since 1987 and has always been amongst the very top agents in The City. He prides himself on his local knowledge, personal service, marketing prowess, and refined negotiating skills.

His consistency, professionalism, and market knowledge provides him with continued support and referrals from his broad base of clients. His consistent and active participation in the local residential markets combined with his lifelong residency in The City gives him rare insight into the marketplace. This shared insight is very valuable to his clients, not only from the historical perspective, but also from his ability to pick up the slight subtleties of current market conditions. San Francisco is a very beautiful and unusual city with almost every property and every neighborhood being truly unique.

Joe has worn many hats in his real estate career representing buyers and sellers and co-founding the much respected boutique brokerage firm - Ritchie Hallanan Real Estate, LTD. As Managing Principal of Ritchie Hallanan he directed its extensive marketing campaigns, managed numerous difficult transactions, and became even more experienced in the real estate brokerage business.

His solid reputation and close associations within the local brokerage community gives him access to timely and valuable information about properties and current market trends. With those insights, his clients have the opportunity to make very successful transactions. Often times, when privacy is an issue, he can accomplish “off-market”  transactions through his wide network of friends and colleagues.

Joseph Gartland Moore is a life long, third generation native San Franciscan, who grew up in Presidio Heights. He presently lives in San Francisco with his wife of 31 years and has three grown children. He was educated locally attending St. Ignatius College Prep, Santa Clara University, and Menlo College School of Business Administration.

Joe comes from a large family many of whom are active in San Francisco business, cultural, charitable, and civic affairs. He’s served on numerous charitable and cultural boards, including the San Francisco Boys and Girls Club, Columbia Park Boys and Girls Club, Saint Brendan Men’s Club (President, ‘94-‘96), Salvation Army Advisory Board, and the Guardsmen (President ‘92-‘93). Joe is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), the California Association of REALTORS® (CAR), the San Francisco Association of REALTORS® (SFAR) and the Top Agent Network.

His Luxury affiliations include Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate, Luxury Portfolio, and The Leading Real Estate Companies of the World.

As first time home buyers the process can be a bit daunting, but working with Joe and Joe was such a pleasure. Their knowledge of the market and the nuances of each home was invaluable. We trusted Joe and Joe throughout this big decision, and we love our new home. We could not have found it without them.

Joe has represented me multiple times over the last 20 years. I've always found him pleasant to work with. He is knowledgeable, forthright and cares about the details. He has always been willing to put in that extra effort to make sure that everything goes smoothly. Thanks Joe!

– Michael Parish

Joe was professional, caring, and exceedingly competent. Joe handled the whole real estate transaction, from beginning to closing, (including challenges) with the utmost attention to detail and professional capability. Joe not only knows the intricacies of real estate, he is personable and always available to answer any questions or concerns. We could not be happier with our experience with Joe.

– Shirley O'Neil & Phyllis Lyons

Joe was an asset throughout our search for a home. As first time home buyers, we had lots of questions and felt completely in over our heads. Joe was always available to check out a place and answer our many questions. He clearly has a wealth of knowledge and insight that was key in walking us through each step of the home buying process.

– Erin Skiffer

Joe was terrific every step of the way. We was attentive, well connected in the realtor community, and very professional. Selling your home can be very emotional, and Joe was honest and resourceful, and always available. It is obvious why he is one of the top realtors in San Francisco.
