Dear Potential Buyers…Here Is Something We’d Like You to Know About Our Neighborhood!

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 ... Read More »

Today on Broker Tour I saw a number of properties on the south side of the city in Glen Park. I’m bringing my new listing on the market at 125 Randall Street in Glen Park this Saturday and Sunday from 2-4. I like to see the competition.

Properties That Sell Between $1.4M and $1.5M in San Francisco!

These days, it is not unusual to have first time buyers who are approved up to $1.5M – these are buyers who will typically need at least $300,000 down to buy a property! No wonder San Francisco is considered such a hard market to get into. While almost anywhere else in the country this would buy you a mansion – ... Read More »

Holiday Tea for Two or More!

It’s that time of year to celebrate the holidays with friends and family. Each year my Book Club goes somewhere different in San Francisco to enjoy a “High Tea” with tasty finger sandwiches, homemade scones and miniature cakes and cookies. This year we opted for a new tea place called Sip Tea Room.  It’s in the Inner Sunset on Lincoln ... Read More »

The Latest on Sales in Posh Pacific Heights – 2017 Update!

Pacific Heights is the first neighborhood I lived in when I moved to San Francisco in 1987. As you can imagine, SF was very different then; it had more of a small town feel. My husband, who is from New York, used to sarcastically call it a “cow town.” I guess compared to Manhattan, it was back then, before it ... Read More »

Home Prices Rise Substantially in St. Francis Wood!

St. Francis Wood is a neighborhood with a formal upscale feel to it, with larger than average sized tree-strewn lots and spacious traditional homes to go with them. It is in the eastern part of San Francisco, bordered by West Portal to the north and west, Balboa Terrace to the south, and the neighborhoods of Sherwood Forest and Monterey Heights ... Read More »

Just Sold: Potrero Hill View Two-Unit Property

In March of this year, I listed a tenant-occupied property at 898 Carolina Street for $1,595,000.  It closed recently. It was a Victorian two-unit property with downtown and Twin Peaks views at the top of the hill at Carolina Street in Potrero Hill. It had great development potential and an upside in rents but needed some work. The lucky buyer ... Read More »

Mission Terrace Revisited – A Neighborhood On Its Way Up

This week on Broker’s Tour, I toured Mission Terrace, a neighborhood I wrote a post about back in 2013.  At the time, it seemed like one of the few neighborhoods that young couples could buy a move-in ready home for under $800,000. When I walked into a home there this week which was listed for $799,000, it was far from ... Read More »

Why There is A Housing Shortage in SF!

San Francisco Housing

One thing that we know is that inventory is very low in San Francisco right now. There are a number of reasons for this. A recent NYT article discussed the fact that one reason inventory is low is because people are moving less, that it seems to be the new normal.  I see signs of this regularly in San Francisco: ...
