Selling Bridge to Bridge Views of a Co-op!

For a list price of $11M, one expects a spectacular residence and in Russian Hill on the 16th floor of 1750 Taylor at #1601, that is exactly what you get! I represented the buyers of this amazing home. This is a co-op residence, which is different from a condo. Co-ops are not as common in San Francisco as they are in Manhattan, for example. As an owner of a co-op you own stock in a corporation that leases the unit exclusively

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

Staging Your Condo Virtually!

For every listing I have, I hire a professional photographer to come in and photograph the property. Something I also do for almost every listing I put on the market is staging, having a home furnished and decorated nicely to create beautifully designed rooms to photograph. Even if a seller already has a nicely-furnished home, staging helps to make the decorating more neutral. That way, when buyers come into the property they see attractive spaces in which they could live. Sometimes a property

Just Listed in Pacific Heights!

I just brought on the market a super charming condo in Pacific Heights! It has one bedroom plus an extra smaller room perfect for a study or nursery. This serene unit is located on the top floor of a boutique 6 unit building. There’s a chef’s kitchen which includes a Viking range and a spacious bedroom with a walk-in closet with a custom closet system. The large living room has French pane windows that look down onto a fabulous lush

Happy Sellers, Happy Agent!

I recently listed and sold a lovely 2 bedroom view condo in Sausalito. It sold for over the list price of $815,000 to a very happy buyer!   My clients, Chris and Carol, had this to say about their experience: We are very pleased to offer this five star review for Carol. Long ago Carol tried to help us find a place in San Francisco. She was never negative, always realistic, and very professional, but ultimately we gave up at

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.

Forest Knolls View Home Quickly Goes Pending!

In case you are wondering if the real estate market has cooled down, it does not look like it. My recent new listing at 2 Lake Forest Court in Forest Knolls went pending two weeks after it came on the market, receiving 2 offers and going substantially over the asking price. The 3 bedroom view home is located on a leafy cul-de-sac in Forest Knolls. The owner who built the home in 1961 lived there until she passed away at

Is Real Estate Back to Normal?

For Sale signs are popping up everywhere! It’s the spring market after all. Is real estate back to normal? Hardly!  There are no Open Houses or Broker Tours. The days of the “lookey-loo,” that curious, not-serious buyer are over for a while. They can’t drop into Sunday open houses and look around at their neighbor’s property. This is a time for motivated and serious buyers.  Real estate agents have been encouraged to do everything virtually. Obviously, this can be challenging.

The Surreal SF Real Estate Market

I have received a lot of questions about the real estate market and what the impact will be on home prices. “Will buyers be able to get some good deals after this is all over?” they ask. I don’t have a crystal ball but what I do feel is that once the Stay In Place (SIP) orders are lifted, it will be a very busy marketplace. Why? I am seeing  activity even now while we have orders in place. There
