Conversations with Hilary: Justin Fichelson

This month I was able to connect with an old friend and previous PlumpJack employee, Justin Fichelson. Born and raised in San Francisco, Justin decided to pursue his lifelong passion for real estate and architecture after graduating from the University of San Francisco and is currently one of the featured realtors on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing, San Francisco..black nike free run

If you know me, you know I am passionate about philanthropy and have been since I was very young. I am so proud that Justin has also found his passion in philanthropy at a young age with his deep involvement in the San Francisco arts community. He is a founding board member and current treasurer of the Exploratorium Lab, which raises money for the San Francisco Exploratorium, one of the world’s top interactive science museums. Justin is also a member of the Junior Committee of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, The San Francisco Fall Antiques Show, and previously served as a board member of the SF Symphony Symphonix. You may think you know Justin from his appearance on Million Dollar Listing, but after reading this month’s Conversations with Hilary, you’ll get to know him a little better.
