Two “Home Runs” and the Market in SF!

SOMA Listing I just closed on two properties in two different neighborhoods. The beautiful loft pictured was listed for $1,165,000 and sold for over the list price. Although SOMA properties generally stay on the market longer with many selling under the list price, the building at 380 10th Street is very popular. There have been a number of recent sales in ...

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 »

Be Careful About Asking Tenants to Move Out!

I was recently speaking with someone who has a condo in the city that was built in the early part of the last century. Since it was built prior to June of 1979, it comes under the SF Rent Control Ordinance. She told me that she thought that once the lease is up, she can give the tenant 60 days ... 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 »

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 ... 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 »

How An Architect Owner Can Make a Big Difference!

I am excited to bring on a new listing of a three bedroom Edwardian condo which I like to describe by saying “where old world charm meets modern design.” It is located at 1487 Greenwich, #32, in Russian Hill, where Russian Hill, Cow Hollow and the Marina converge. Facing Greenwich, the condo has “peek-a-boo” views of the Bay from the ... Read More »

Two Ratified Contracts in One Day – Sweet!

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. That’s a good day!:) My Cherry Street listing went over asking and was bought by a couple from southern California whose son and daughter-in-law live in ... Read More »
