Just Sold!

I recently helped my client, Jonathan, buy a home perfect for him in Eureka Valley. This home at 204 Grand View Avenue is very tastefully renovated inside with a modern look to its chef’s kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The living room has a cozy fireplace and views of the Bay. The back patio and terraced garden are a delight and exactly where my client wants to entertain his friends. He thanked me for helping him find his first

Is the SF Real Estate Market Shifting?

Price reductions Fewer offers on the offer date Offer dates with no offers Properties staying on the market longer All of these are signs of a changing market! Last week, I helped two buyers purchase homes in Eureka Valley in San Francisco – one listed for $1.6M and one listed for $4.2M. In each of these situations the seller only received two offers, including my client’s. The listing agent for each home expected to receive more offers based on the

Time to Sell!

presidio avenue

Back in 1998, my husband and I bought a two-unit building and moved into the lower flat and renovated it. We condo-converted the building and eventually moved upstairs and renovated that flat, renting out the lower unit at 233 Presidio Avenue. The lovely family that grew from three to five over 15 years, and who rented the lower flat, gave notice at the end of last year so after much deliberation my husband and I decided it was time to

When An Offer More Than One Million Over the List Price Doesn’t Prevail!:(

Paintd Ladies

Last week I wrote an offer for clients that was more than one million dollars over the list price. Yes you heard that right – and they didn’t get it! Out of 14 offers, theirs was number 3. How did we get to this point in San Francisco? I had previously heard of one or two properties selling for more than a million dollars over the list price but those were notable exceptions. However, this experience tells me that it

Floating in the Sky in Russian Hill

Have you ever thought of owning a view home that looks out onto the city of San Francisco?  I just listed a co-op (see my earlier blogpost for more info about co-ops) that once inside makes you feel like you are floating in the sky overlooking the city. It has an open floor plan that takes full advantage of world-class views across Downtown, Russian Hill and out to the GG Bridge and the Bay. It has two bedrooms and two

Would you like to find the perfect home for family living? Peggy Economos and I just brought on the market a pristine Victorian home with a modern flair in Pacific Heights! It has 5 bedrooms and 5 ½ baths. It is perfect for family living with its spaciousness, lovely outdoor area for barbecuing, and two offices with built-in desks and cabinets. The media room is a great place to escape to with a bottle of wine from the temperature-controlled wine

Why You Should Use An In-Town Agent!

Recently, I showed a view property (view in photo) in San Francisco in Russian Hill which my clients were excited to see. The listing agent was from out of town. It was a two bedroom penthouse unit with a large deck overlooking the bay.  According to the listing in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), agents were instructed to call “Showing Time” to set up an appointment. This is a call service which I called and was told that “Showing Time”

Just Sold – The Challenge of Buying a $2.1M Dream Home!

thave scaled

In the middle of this crazy SF market, over the last six months I worked with a nice couple and their two children who were looking for their dream home – a 4-bedroom home on the west side of the city, mostly in the Sunset and the Parkside. But as they looked, even with a healthy budget of $2M, they thought that this was not likely to happen so they started to focus on 3-bedroom homes.  However, even then many of the homes they saw that

Selling Bridge to Bridge Views of a Co-op!

LivingRooma scaled

For a list price of $11M, one expects a spectacular residence and in Russian Hill on the 16th floor of 1750 Taylor at #1601, that is exactly what you get! I represented the buyers of this amazing home. This is a co-op residence, which is different from a condo. Co-ops are not as common in San Francisco as they are in Manhattan, for example. As an owner of a co-op you own stock in a corporation that leases the unit exclusively
