Work with a Local San Francisco Lender

Top producing real estate agents embrace the digital age but to do our jobs best, we must always remember that this business is personal. It is about relationships.

Why Work With A Buyer’s Agent When Buying a Home in San Francisco

I got into the San Francisco real estate game back in the dark ages. Okay, it was 2002 but believe it or not, the MLS was not yet online.

If you wanted to get to the listing, you had to go through us.  As we all know, this was not to last much longer. Real estate changed and it changed swiftly. Over the following decade, more and more housing information became … [Read more...]

6 Reasons San Francisco Real Estate Kicks Butt

6 Reasons San Francisco Real Estate Kicks Butt

This week, I had the privilege of listening to the indefatigable local San Francisco real estate expert, Carole Rodoni, give a talk on the state of the local San Francisco real estate market.

Anyway, I wanted to share my favorite takeaway from her talk. Rodoni calls San Francisco an International Eco-Environment and as such, can only be compared to other … [Read more...]

Upper Market Street Residential New Construction Condos

Upper Market Street Residential New Construction Condos

There is a lot of new residential construction rising on the streets of San Francisco and even more is in the planning stages.  The result will be an increase in the number of for-sale condominiums as well as rental units. About this,  we say "Horray!" because frankly,  this city needs both.   The bulk of the current activity is focused on Mission Bay, South Beach, SoMa and mid/lower Market. Heck, there is even a huge project right in the heart of the Mission on Mission Street between 21st and … [Read more...]
