Welcome to My New Look!

It was time for an Inside San Francisco Real Estate refresh, and I hope you like my new look!

Much thanks to award-winning designer Richard Coward of Studio Coward for that work of art above that captures all our San Francisco icons, as well as my favorite local buildings—not to mention my own Noe Valley property and the one that Richard and his wife bought with me last year.

I want to thank Dave Bloom of Ginger Soul Records in Brooklyn for the new layout and look. This wasn’t just about popping in a new WordPress theme; Dave built the site from scratch so I could work with a custom layout that will give me a lot of flexibility in the future.

And special thanks to Sarah Deragon of Portraits To The People for my new photos. Gotta keep my photo updated so I don’t surprise new clients, and Sarah made the process easy.

You’ll continue to find the inside scoop on San Francisco real estate on these pages, culled from my day-to-day work as a full-time Realtor. I look forward to keeping you covered on all things real estate, and please get in touch if you’re planning to buy or sell this year. I’d be happy to work with you and help you strategize so you can accomplish what you want without a lot of stress.

What You Can Buy for the Holidays

What You Can Buy for the Holidays

There are a few intrepid sellers who have just listed their homes and would undoubtedly love to be in contract before Christmas. Here are four new listings that I think will definitely achieve that goal, if not be actually sold and closed by December 25th. If you’re a buyer, it’s time to move quickly! Be decisive, and choose your calendar timeframes strategically because banks and title companies close early on Christmas Eve/New Year’s Eve, and are closed completely on Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Here’s a look at what’s out there.Continue Reading

Marketed throughout the Giants’ World Series games, my listing at 300 Berry #1010 was a popular unit at the Arterra.

We received six offers, and ended up accepting a cash offer with a seven-day close for a sale price of $1,080,000, Chalk it up to a hot Mission Bay market!

Luxury Market Going Strong in Fall 2014

Luxury Market Going Strong in Fall 2014

San Francisco real estate in the $2M+ price range continues to experience a healthy sales volume. There doesn’t seem to be a shortage of buyers, particularly those paying in cash. Chalk it up to two factors—tech company stock options, and buyers’ desire to live in large homes in prime neighborhoods.

Case in point: 250 Cumberland, initially sold in 2012 for $1,775,000 as a major two-unit fixer that had been partially gutted by a fire. Flash forward to 2014. Rebuilt as a 5BR/4.5BA, 3,974-square foot single-family, the home was purchased by cash buyers for $6,000,000 at the end of October.Continue Reading

Holidays Approach, Time To Make Your Move

We’re speeding toward Thanksgiving, which only means one thing when it comes to San Francisco real estate: Inventory will decline after turkey day, and serious buyers need to take a second look at what’s been sitting on the market.

There are 255 single-family homes and 288 condos currently available, a good portion of which have been on the market for three weeks or more. Take 7 Burnett ($1,695,000), a beautiful 3BR/2BA Twin Peaks view condo. Or for something more quirky with amazing curb appeal, look at 10 Carmel ($3M) in Cole Valley–a 1909 firehouse that’s now a very cool pad for a buyer who likes entertaining and living in a unique home.

It’s definitely time to buckle down and work with current inventory. Our market moves so quickly that you can sometimes get obsessed with new listings and completely miss out on homes that won’t involve tedious multiple offers and overbidding. Give me a shout if you need some help finding the right place. I’ll be in town and ready to work!

Don’t Forget About Lofts in San Francisco

Don’t Forget About Lofts in San Francisco

Lofts have always been one of my favorite types of homes in San Francisco. With their high ceilings, open spaces and large windows, lofts always feel bigger than they actually are. Developers went on a loft-building spree in the late 1990s-early 2000s to create live-work housing in “transitional” neighborhoods like South of Market, The Mission, South Beach, and Dogpatch. And these properties still offer good bang for the buck.Continue Reading
