Presented by Black Book International – Black Book International delivers a depth of service, connections and expertise that transcend that of the average real estate company. The elite brokerage’s proven ability to find solutions to the most complex transactions has earned its founder and CEO, Douglas Manful, the respect of high net-worth individuals around the world. From Singapore to South America, from China to Canada and across the United States and Europe, these uber-wealthy investors continually choose to work with Doug because he gets the job done with discretion and finesse.

An astute negotiator and investment strategist, Doug works diligently to deliver maximum client satisfaction. During his 25-year career, he has overseen real estate transactions exceeding $1 billion. He and his team specialize in luxury estates, commercial assets and land, with offices in Beverly Hills, San Francisco and East Bay. Currently, BBI represents an impressive inventory of $207 million.

Built on a foundation of honesty, integrity and superior quality, BBI’s stellar reputation has aided in the establishment of long-term personal relationships with some of the world’s wealthiest individuals. This, according to Doug, is the key to his company’s success.

“Clients benefit from our comprehensive network of global connections and our extraordinary access to a wealth of private equity,” explains Doug. “This enables us to address each client’s unique needs while expertly navigating complex situations in order to resolve challenges and minimize client stress.”

Because of his commitment to the highest level of service and privacy, Doug often represents properties before they are made available through a conventional listing service. One such property is a 24,000-square-foot mansion in Pacific Heights.

Designed to capitalize on views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the newly renovated residence is one of San Francisco’s grandest estates, with five floors of refined elegance and luxurious comfort. Notable features include a 22 luxury car garage, a 1,500-bottle wine cellar, indoor basketball court, home gym, yoga studio, a 2,500-square-foot master suite, and a private apartment with a separate entrance.
