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 a letter to prospective buyers.  Potential buyers looking at the condo like the fact that my sellers took the time

Exquisite Glen Park Condo About to Hit the Market!

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. What I learned is that there isn’t anything on the market right now quite like my unit in this neighborhood. It’s an Edwardian two bedroom condo in a two-unit building, loaded with charm

“Offer Dates” Decline and “Offers As They Come” Return to SF

It feels like a cooler wind is hitting our market. I saw twelve properties of varying price points between $699,000 and $4,700,000 on Broker’s Tour today.

What Can You Buy in SF Between $1M and $1.2M?

My client is looking for a two bedroom condo for up to $1.2M. Unfortunately, that could be a bit of a challenge in San Francisco, depending on which neighborhood you are looking in. Anyone reading this who lives outside of California is probably a little shocked because that amount of money could buy a very nice home with land in most parts of the country. But not here. On Broker’s Tour this week, I looked at 4 properties in that
