With Fewer Properties on the Market As We Head Into July, There Are Still Some Great Opportunities!

I hear the complaints regularly from buyers that there is not enough inventory in San Francisco.  And now as we head into July, there will be even less.  However, there are still some good opportunities out there. I just brought on a gorgeous spacious corner loft in SOMA which is pictured here. It has a great feel with its warm ... Read More »

“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 ... Read More »

The $110 Parking Ticket to Avoid!

Parking can be challenging sometimes in our Presidio Heights neighborhood because of the neverending construction which takes up parking spaces. We park on the street because we don’t have a garage. Normally, we can park within a block or two of our place but at times during the day, it can be a little more challenging. This brings me to ... Read More »

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 ... Read More »

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 ... Read More »

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 ... Read More »

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 ... Read More »

The Latest on Sales in the Marina!

When I first moved to San Francisco in 1987, I looked out at the Marina from the top of Fillmore Street in Pacific Heights. I was in awe of the pastel colors of the homes in this neighborhood overlooking the Bay. It could have been a Mediterranean fishing village. Chestnut Street at the time had a number of local shops ... Read More »

Making Clients Happy Is My Mission!

“Thank you for your and your team’s excellent work! This went as smoothly as I can imagine,” said my client whose property I just sold at 1487 Greenwich, #32, for substantially over the asking price. I LOVE when I make clients happy. Read More »

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 ... Read More »
