Just Sold!

My buyers just closed on this “oh so cute” cottage condo in Mission Dolores. It is in a development by Donald MacDonald Architects that is set back from Guerrero near 14th Street. It contains 10 sweet cottages. This one is a two bedroom, one bath cottage. Parking is in front. There is a shared garden in the back. It is a very unique living situation for San Francisco. (MacDonald Architects has another similar development in Duboce Triangle.)   We were

“Just Sold” in Noe Valley – The Neighborhood Continues to be Competitive for Buyers

I just represented a couple who made their first offer on a home in Noe Valley. They were substantially outbid by a buyer who offered hundreds of thousands of dollars over their offer. My clients were ready when they made their second offer for a nicely renovated Edwardian home in Noe on 29th Street. They prevailed in this second offer and now are excited to move into a place they love that they can call home. 🙂

The Latest on the Real Estate Market in Presidio Heights!

I have lived in Presidio Heights for almost 20 years now and have seen changes in the composition of people who live in this beautiful leafy neighborhood. As more people move out of their homes and downsize, younger families have moved in to buy, and some, to renovate homes. It is a great place to live with an unbeatable location near the Presidio and the charming shops of Sacramento Street. The San Francisco real estate market is beginning to change

Is the Bay Area Real Estate Market Tanking?

Everyone is asking what is happening with the real estate market. When the market changes, it changes on a dime. Sellers have finally realized (perhaps a bit late) that the market has reached its peak. More properties have come on the market this fall giving buyers a much better selection of homes; they can be more picky now. Some overly exuberant sellers have priced their properties too high, thinking that the market would keep going up and now they are

An Urban Chic Converted Loft Comes on the Market in SOMA!

I’m excited to announce my new listing! It is a beautiful 2 bedroom converted loft in SOMA at 60 Rausch, #308. It is located in mid-Market; this area has really been changing since Twitter brought its offices to 1355 Market Street at 9th. It’s a perfect place for someone working downtown or on the peninsula who wants a spacious retreat to come to at the end of a busy day. The loft is amazingly quiet considering it is in such

Turning Lemons Into Lemonade!

I just closed on a purchase for buyers at the Infinity, one of the best luxury condo developments that sits near the edge of the Embarcadero in SF. What is unusual about the nice buyers I represented is that sadly they lost their home in the Santa Rosa fire. A loss like this is tremendous – all of those cherished mementos like family photos, furnishings, art and so much more up in flames. It is not an easy thing to

Helping First Time Buyers Prevail in SF!

“Buying a home in San Francisco is something else. You want an agent who knows the market, will keep you focused on what matters and above all is someone you can trust. Carol was that person to us and we’re so grateful that she helped us find our home. As first time buyers, we not only appreciated Carol’s methodical approach, but also her calm support during what in this hot market is an emotional journey. Carol guided us through the

Is the SF Real Estate Market About to Crash?

Something is changing a bit in the real estate market. I am seeing more price reductions, properties staying on the market longer, agents hesitating about having offer dates and properties coming back on the market. This is usually a sign that the market is changing. Of course, it is the summer and people are away on vacation so this sometimes slows things down a bit. I am also hearing that east coast markets have slowed as well as southern California

Celebrating Buying That First Home!

How exciting for this young family to have finally found and successfully competed for their first home in their favorite SF neighborhood –  the Inner Richmond. Meet Chandler and Jenny and their cute daughter, Zoe. I have been working with them about 7 months helping them find their dream home. We initially toured some properties together. I looked for them on Broker Tour (Tuesdays in SF when specific times for new and repeat listings in given neighborhoods are offered to

On Wednesday, I went into contract on two properties, my listing above at 333B Cherry Street in Presidio Heights, and a condo in the Inner Richmond for a sweet couple who are buying it.

This will make a perfect pied a terre for them to come
