Northern California’s Most Prestigious Properties

This September some of the world’s wealthiest individuals are expected to arrive in San Francisco for an unprecedented event that will expose them to the finest luxuries the area provides.

They will be coming to take part in an exclusive six-day event, hosted by Olivia Hsu Decker, one of the leading luxury Realtors in the area.

As a frequent host to international business leaders and celebrities at her famous Paris chateau – Chateau de Villette – where “The Da Vinci Code” movie was filmed, Olivia is no stranger to luxurious grand scale events. In 2002, when she chaired the San Francisco Opera Ball, it was one of the truly memorable evenings of the social season.

Co-owner of Decker Bullock Sotheby’s International Realty, Olivia Hsu Decker got the idea for this ambitious event after a buyer backed out of a record-breaking $65 million sale of one of her listings in Belvedere, California, where her company is based.

“I don’t think anybody has done this before — 6 days of luxury events that also includes both the Opening Night of the San Francisco Symphony and the San Francisco Opera,” said Olivia.

Invitations for the $3,300 per person event were sent to 5,000 UHNWIs (Ultra High Net Worth Individuals) locally, nationally and internationally to attend the Opening Night festivities and gala dinners.
