Just Sold!

I recently closed on a listing in Pacific Heights. My listing at 2878 Sacramento Street, Unit 6, was a serene top floor light-filled one bedroom plus condo filled with charm. It was in a great Pacific Heights location! My client had lived there for over 20 years and while she loved living there she was ready to make a move. It had an eat-in chef’s kitchen with cherry cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, including a Viking range. It

Happy Buyers – Happy Agent!:)

I loved working with Rhea and Bobby and I was thrilled to help get them into their first home! Here is what they had to say: “As first time home buyers in this crazy hot SF market, my husband and I knew we would need a rockstar to be able to find our dream home and buy it. We found that rockstar in Carol. With her decades long experience navigating this intense market, her wealth of information shines through, but

Finding the Perfect Place in an Overheated Market!

I recently had the pleasure of helping a great couple, Rhea and Bobby, purchase a luxury 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom unit at 3053 California, in Pacific Heights after a long search during the pandemic. We went together to every appointment until they found a place they love. It has a great layout, high-end finishes and is spacious at 2186 square feet.  It was originally priced at $2,095,000 but we were able to get it for substantially less. In this overheated

How to Prevail in Today’s Sellers’ Market!

In this heated market, an increasing number of buyers are making “all cash” offers where they are able to show that they have enough cash to pay for the home outright, even though the median price of a home in San Francisco is now around $1.9 million – I even heard of a home over $10 million that sold for all cash! In order to be competitive, some buyers “waive” their financing contingency (the offer to buy is “contingent” on

The Crazy SF Market Continues!

Once again we have an overly heated market in the Bay Area!  I made an offer on a townhome in Pacific Heights for my lovely first-time buyer couple. The list price was $1,695,000, my clients offered $1.9M – and they didn’t get it since there were 8 offers including a winning offer of $2,225,000! Even so, at the same time as accepting the $2,225,000 offer the sellers wanted a back-up, so they made a counter-offer at $1,950,000 to my clients.

More Satisfied Buyers!

“With her 20 years of experience, attention to detail, and legal background, Carol is an excellent choice for your real estate needs, but the reason she stands out above all others is her character. Working through this process with Carol felt like we had an experienced teammate, and more importantly, a friend who always had our best interests in mind.” One of my favorite things is helping buyers get into their first home. My second favorite thing is when they

Is the SF Condo Market Picking Up – Again?

Last year when people asked me about the real estate market, I told them it was a great time to buy. You don’t often see a buyer’s market in San Francisco but last year was it. Condo prices were down, particularly in elevator buildings in South of Market, and homes, while holding their value, were not appreciating like they had in the past. Some people told me they would wait until next year as they thought the market would continue

Great Time to Buy a Pied á Terre in San Francisco!

If you have been thinking about buying a pied-á-terre in San Francisco, now is the time! According to the Multiple Listing Service (which tracks properties for sale and that have been sold) there has been a decline of 8 to 10 percent in the median price of condos between the 4th quarters of 2019 and 2020.  I recently represented a couple who lives on the Peninsula and they were hoping to buy a condo in the city. What they didn’t realize

Another Happy Buyer!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Taylor Jang and helping him buy his first condo in the city. Taylor was renting a place in Noe Valley and had grown to love the neighborhood. When he saw the condo on Day Street, he was excited because it was across the street from where he likes to “shoot hoops.” Here is what he said about the process of buying his place: “Working with Carol was a pleasure.  She is incredibly

Why a TIC Unit Can Be a Good Buy!

A super cute listing on Wayne Place at #32 that I currently have on the market is located in a very walkable location near North Beach, Russian Hill and downtown. It is priced at $765,000 and has two bedrooms, one bath, and an in-unit washer/dryer, outdoor shared space and parking. And at this price point owning this great home is almost less expensive than renting a comparable property and you get to build equity! What is a TIC? While we
