Danielle Lazier

Danielle was blogging before we even had a word for it! She would go out and find the best deals in town: the hidden gems, diamonds in the rough, and dream homes. Then, she’d write about them from the perspective of what it was like to actually live there. It was more like a clever restaurant review than a boring property description! Her goal was always to make selling or purchasing real estate a fun, positive experience.

About Danielle

With SFHotlist.com and my other social real estate endeavors, I aim to provide helpful information on the San Francisco real estate market and economy as well as home buying & selling insider tips and tricks. No matter where you are on your real estate journey, I believe in harnessing the power of high-demand, low-supply San Francisco real estate to build a secure future.

My mantra: Buy what you can afford, as soon as you can afford it and watch your financial security and substantial tax savings grow over the years. In other words, to get to the penthouse, you must first get on the elevator.
