My latest listing in Fairmount Heights, a district within Glen Park that is up a hill yet very close to the Noe Valley border, has created a bit of a stir for the letter my clients wrote to potential buyers. While buyers often write letters to sellers and include them in their offers, it is unusual for sellers to write a letter to prospective buyers. Potential buyers looking at the condo like the fact that my sellers took the time to write a letter to them. I am copying it below so you have all of the fun recommendations from my clients to enjoy.
Dear Potential Buyers,
During our time at 125 Randall Street, we fell in love with the neighborhood. Moving from our apartment at Dolores & 24th, we were used to Noe and The Mission. What we quickly learned was how unique Randall street is, with access to so much more. You’re a short walk from 4 vibrant yet different neighborhoods: Noe Valley, Glen Park, The Mission and Bernal Heights. With access to public transit (J-Church MUNI, Mission St. buses, and Glen Park BART), commuting downtown takes about 15 minutes. For those who need to drive or catch a tech shuttle down the peninsula, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you can get moving on 280, being so close to San Jose Ave and the shuttle stops.
Pre-kids, we always had friends who met us in our neighborhood for dinner and drinks on the weekend. In The Mission, we love Old Bus Tavern, Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack, the Knockout, Blue Plate, Front Porch, El Rio, Rock Bar, Al’s Place and Old Devil Moon. Noe has La Ciccia, La Pomelo, and La Nebbia (now Adrianna). A slightly longer walk over to Bernal rewarded us with Holy Water, Piqueo’s, and Hillside Supper Club. Glen Park also has the infamous Gialina’s and Le P’tit Laurent and live music at Bird & Beckett.
As we started our family, our neighborhood remained so convenient for our new lifestyle. We have an amazing playground and indoor play space just down the hill at the Noe Valley Recreation Center and another playground which is open on weekends at the Fairmount Elementary School. We have libraries with story times in Glen Park, Bernal, and 24th Street. We also have lots of restaurants and shops that are great for kids. In The Mission, we love El Buen Comer, Cuisine of Nepal, Natural Resources, and Mitchell’s Ice Cream. Noe has Little Folkies and all of their restaurants are family-friendly. Bernal has Bernal Star, Little Bee Bakery, Chloe’s Closet, and Progressive Gounds. Glen Park has an amazing grocery store, Canyon Market, for prepared foods and the Glen Canyon for weekend strolls.
We loved getting to know our neighborhood over the years and we’re confident you will love it, too!
Wishing you the best,
Carolyn and Dave
