Just Sold! 1622-1626 Great Highway: Save The Waves Coalition Gets A Check

I am happy to say I just represented part of the buying group for this wonderful property on the Great Highway. You may remember the post my colleague did about 1622-1626 Great Highway (Ghost of Sunset Past: The Moss Flats)? Originally listed for $1,349,000 our clients got it for LESS THAN ASKING (it can be done). It’s a done deal at $1,265,000, and everyone is happy, including Save The Waves Coalition, a group dedicated to protecting our oceans, beaches, and waves.

In case you haven’t heard, every transaction I will donate a portion of my commission to the charity/nonprofit of my clients’ choosing, and my clients this time chose Save The Waves. If any of you at Save The Waves are reading, the check is in the mail!


Congratulations to our buyers. This is a great property in an awesome location.

I am available to help you, your friends, and your family with all of your real estate needs, and I am feeling really good about now giving a portion of every sale to charity/nonprofit, so help me do more!

PocketListings.net Founder Alexander Clark To Join Top Agent Network As Advisor

The big news in Off Market real estate to start the year…

Top Agent Network, Inc. (TAN) announced January 3rd that Alexander Clark, founder and CEO of the online real estate platform PocketListings.net, has agreed to become an industry and technology advisor to Top Agent Network. TAN is also acquiring the pocketlistings.net domain name from Mr. Clark.

Top Agent Network CEO/Founder David Faudman says of the new arrangement, “I have great respect for Alexander as a true real estate entrepreneur. We are excited to bring his insight and expertise into Top Agent Network.”

Mr. Clark, currently a real estate agent at Paragon Real Estate Group and an active member of Top Agent Network’s San Francisco chapter, founded PocketListings.net in 2010. While switching his brokerage affiliation, Mr. Clark became acutely aware of how fragmented non-MLS networking was between brokerages. To help solve this problem, he started Pocketlistings.net, a brokerage independent non-MLS listing exchange service.

As a top-producing broker in Marin County, California, David Faudman had recognized similar needs in his own real estate sales business. He developed Top Agent Network in the mid-1990s, originally as a simple email list-serve for local high producing agents, then as the online application in 2009. Top Agent Network allows members to exchange pre-MLS and non-MLS information across all brokerages. This exchange includes: Listings, Buyer Needs, Service Provider Recommendations and Industry Discussion.

“Restricting membership to verified high-ranking professionals makes for a highly trusted, productive online exchange,” notes Mr. Faudman. “Our members use TAN enthusiastically in the markets we have launched so far.” Top Agent Network currently has 30 chapters nationwide and has attracted a broad roster of some of the highest producing agents throughout the country.

“That’s what interested me in joining TAN,” said Mr. Clark. “Technologically, the real estate industry is a step or two behind. But TAN members here in San Francisco use Top Agent Network religiously. TAN is a cutting edge real estate company that is changing the way top agents conduct their business. I am excited to bring my knowledge and experience to Top Agent Network.”

Top Agent Network is a paid membership available to qualified top producers in local chapters by invitation only.

What I Know That You Don’t…Multiple Off Market Buying And Selling Opportunities

I just wanted to drop a quick little note for all of you buyers and sellers out there, mostly buyers.

If you are looking for property in Cole Valley, Union Square, Lone Mountain, Outer Parkside (most call it the Sunset), Russian Hill, Pacific Heights, Nob Hill, or St. Francis Wood, I know of properties that are not on MLS, not on PocketListings.net, not on Redfin, not on Trulia, not on Zillow, and likely not on your radar, and they are for sale.

I can help you get access to any of these homes, but you need to contact me, and you need to be unrepresented when you do so.

Sellers, if you’re on the fence about selling, I know of several buyers looking for property in Pacific Heights, Russian Hill, Union Square, Cole Valley, and many other parts of the city.

All it takes is a simple email or phone call and we might be able to put something together.

Not sure if you want to work with me? Have a look at some of these testimonials, and take a gander at some recent sales (on the bottom of the linked page).

I can help, and I’m a nice guy…I swear.

Sabotaged….

I had all kinds of good blog posts about real estate planned for today, including all kinds of stats and numbers, a few off market opportunities, and even a funny story about multiple offers. Instead, let’s take a moment to remember one of the best minds music has seen in my lifetime. Adam Yauch (MCA), of the Beastie Boys, has passed. He was truly a good guy. I had the pleasure of snowboarding with him a few times, and the satisfaction of watching him try to hit on the girl that was hitting on me (always nice to one up a rock star). I’ll never forget the booming sound system in his beater Subaru either. R.I.P. Yaucher. You will be missed.

Life is short…live it. When your card is pulled, that’s it.

Happy Birthday To Me–Turn It Up!

Now that I’m no longer a “young punk”, but apparently a “real estate professional”, you’d think my tastes in music have changed to something perhaps a bit more refined, or maybe a bit more conservative. Quite the contrary. The Vandalss have long been one of my favorite bands, and every year, right about May 1st, this is my favorite song.

How can you not love The Vandals? How can you not rock this on your birthday!? How can you not turn the dial to 11…

West Portal Buyers Find Happiness With Me On Their Side

I’m keeping up with my New Year’s resolution to ask clients for testimonials, and I’m thrilled at how willing you all are to share! I really, really appreciate it, and I enjoy working with all of you.

We were relatively new to the Bay Area and had been conducting a very haphazard and ineffective home search until we were introduced to Alex. He came highly recommended and we quickly found out why. He introduced us to different neighborhoods and new pockets of the city, opening our eyes to possibilities that we had neglected on our own. Alex helped us to be aggressive (but smart) in our negotiations. He was our ally and a trusted advisor from our very first meeting and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Alex is without a doubt an extremely important (and fun) person to have on your side during any home search.
-Annie and Morgan

Thanks guys! You rule! Enjoy your home and don’t be shy with invites to some barbecues in that awesome east facing (we talked wind) backyard…

Do You Like To Golf, Surf, And Ski? So Do I…Let’s Work Together

Keeping with my motivation to provide the best service ever, I present you another testimonial.

Alex Clark did a fantastic job as my agent. He was incredibly responsive. It was rare that a communication would go more than 5 minutes without being answered. He listened to what I wanted and helped me find it, despite some difficult multi-bid situations. Alex worked tirelessly to look for what I wanted and also to make sure I saw other comparable options on the market so I could make an informed choice and know that I was paying a reasonable price. Alex’s knowledge of the local market is impressive. He was friendly but firm with the agents on the other side and was instrumental in getting me a large credit on the purchase price after we were already in contract. I will absolutely use him again the next time I buy or sell real estate and would refer him to anyone else looking to do so.

Thanks Rick!

Rick and I enjoyed a great celebratory round of golf at the Olympic Club, followed it up with fresh tracks at Squaw Valley last week, and plan on surfing together today. (You gotta love Northern California). Remember, it’s not only important that your real estate agent know their sh*t, but also important that you get along, because no transaction is easy, and most sales/purchases take time…lots of it. Don’t choose an agent simply because they’re claiming “top producer” and want to cycle you through their sales system. Choose somebody you wouldn’t mind hanging out with for a few hundred hours.

Another Russian Hill Sale And Testimonial

Another happy client has been so kind as to share a testimonial of the service I can provide to you and your friends and family.

I’m a commercial real estate professional – a few years back I chaired the commercial RE side of our trade association. My wife used to buy retail centers for a REIT. We know the value of having an experienced professional on our side. When we decided to buy a place in SF we chose Alex to represent us. We’re delighted with our new home and would recommend him highly.
-Ed & Susan



Thanks guys!

If you’re in the market to buy/sell San Francisco, Marin, or Peninsula real estate, please don’t hesitate to give me a shout.

Client Testimonials From Way Back

Bear with me while I reorganize my testimonials into individual posts. These are a few put together from way back.

*Alex was very easy to work with. He was straightforward, gave good advice about how the condominium should look when it was being shown, and managed the negotiations with the buyer perfectly. I always felt he was dealing with me honestly, and he kept me fully informed. I will go to Alex any time I want to sell a house in San Francisco. JOHN BARTON

*I don’t know any Realtors in this city [San Francisco] that have a better grasp of technology as it applies to real estate than Alex. His sfnewsletter is a phenomenal resource and great way to begin your home search, or research home sales should you be selling, and he is a pleasure to work with. He seemed to get along great with the other agents involved in our transaction and we’re sure it helped get us the price we want. He negotiated hard, but made everyone laugh the whole way and it was great. Now we live in the suburbs, but if we ever move back, we’ll use Alex for sure. Not to mention he’s a decent golfer too. -Joe Condy

*Carole and I feel that we were very fortunate to have met you at the open house and I am glad we chose you to work with. Be assured in the future when we are ready to look at the market again we will be calling, as well as referring any house hunting friends to you. Read More-Carole and Bruce Derr

*Alex combines an insider’s knowledge of San Francisco, innovative marketingskills and the honesty and integrity of a down to earth guy.-Rich Singer

*Like a lot of SFNewsletter readers, I figured Alex would be either too busy or simply uninterested in representing a first time buyer with a sub-seven figure budget. Ten months of searching and four offers later, we’re homeowners, and he’s still returning my calls…The cool thing about Alex is he’s new-school enough to embrace technology’s influence over his profession, but old-school enough to hold your sweaty hand through every step of escrow. 

Bottom line, if you’re looking to be escorted from property to property in your agent’s Mercedes while being lavishly praised for your exquisite taste and style, Alex ain’t your guy. But if you’re looking for consummate San Francisco market expertise, every tool you’ll ever need to find and evaluate your properties, and a Tiger Woods-like closing mentality – hell, you’re already reading his newsletter, posting to his blog, and god forbid you’re receiving his twitter banter – seriously, why use anyone else?! -Tim Stevens

*We had our condo at the St. Regis listed for close to 8 months with another agent. We hired Alex and he sold it in two weeks! Amazing! Truly amazing and he was fun to work with the whole time, knew the market, knew we should take the offer we received, and knows where I should buy my next place. He is truly a pleasure to work with and really knows his stuff. His newsletter is great too. -Stephanie Morris

*I had been reading Alex’s “sfnewsletter” for over a year, so I knew when I was ready to sell my house in San Francisco, Alex was my choice. His newsletters were very informative and intelligently written. I know this sounds corny, but I really liked his sign-off at the end of each newsletter — “Happy Aloha Friday”. Alex kept on top of all correspondence and paperwork and kept me apprised every step of the selling process. I am happy to say that we accepted an offer after only 2 weeks on the market. I would recommend Alex to anyone in need of a superior REALTOR.-Debra Comstock

*I can and have enthusiastically recommended you to my friends who are looking at purchasing property here in San Francisco. Specifically, I appreciate your diligent work and follow-through, as well as your integrity in working with the seller’s representative and myself that made it possible to get this deal done. Read More.-Larry Singer

*Wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your assistance and help during the purchase of my new [home] in San Francisco. You did a great job of working with me all Summer long trying to find my dream house on my crazy schedule. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted, but by Fall you had identified my criteria and started showing me homes that suited my needs. The house we found has a great ocean view and is close to the beach with a big yard and potential to add on. Read More. -Ryan Seelbach

*Alex and I worked together for over 3 month searching for the right property. He showed me several properties and advised me on the pros and cons of each property. On [my home] he assisted in compiling a very strong offer on property where multiple bids were accepted. I strongly believe it was due to his assistance that I was able to purchase the proeprty despite the other offers being close to or higher than my own. Read More-David Kaneda

*I had met with several real estate agents before I decided on Alex, and it proved to be an excellent decision. He knew the market, had excellent recommendations based on my specific requirements and goals, and most importantly: he knew how to package and position the offer for quick acceptance once I decided on a property. We quickly closed on a condo at 1998 Broadway that was a great fit for me. And I believe the price and conditions make it an exceptional investment. I’d recommend Alex to anybody.

First Ever San Francisco – Lake Tahoe Real Estate Caravan And Ski Extravaganza


[R.I.P. Jamie Pierre]

We’re falling into ski season, and you all know I love me some powder. Many of you also know I grew up in Reno Nevada, with Lake Tahoe as my backyard. I learned to ski at the ripe old age of two, I raced, I burned out, I switched to snowboarding, and now I’m back on the two planks. And I can’t get enough.

I know many of you fellow San Franciscans feel the same way, and enjoy all of the same things I love about our proximity to Lake Tahoe. Being in real estate, I also know many of you have extra cash to burn and dream of owning your own slice of Tahoe heaven that frequently gets buried under multiple feet of snow. That’s why, with the help of my connections up Tahoe way, we want to get you your Lake Tahoe ski pad.

The plan: Spend a day (or more) skiing (with me and some local Tahoe rippers), go see property with proximity to Tahoe ski areas, grab cocktails, make offers, drink champagne (choke champagne powder), invite friends, ski more, and live the Tahoe dream.

The thoughts are preliminary at this point, but far enough along that connections up Tahoe way have been established, homes are being scouted, vans can be rented, and we just need you.

The question is, “Would you, or anyone you know, be interested in taking part in the first ever San Francisco-Lake Tahoe real estate caravan and ski extravaganza?” Feel free to share your yes / no, and thoughts in the comments below, or contact me directly to be kept in the loop or share thoughts privately. With any luck, we can put this together before the snow gets too deep and the “Out of Office Auto Replies” start kicking in.

Pray for snow!

Maybe we’d all be so lucky as to score days like this:

mobilerider.embedVideo(174, 53867 ,”, 520, 330, ‘osmf’, {extras:’skin:tahoetv,muteOn:,autoplay:0,autohide:1′});

[Snowboarders obviously welcome too. We don't discriminate.]

Would You Like Your Property Listed On theFrontSteps.com?

I get at least one email each week from a different person or reader asking me to give their property that is currently for sale some exposure on theFrontSteps.com. I’m flattered. But unless your property is of utter and complete jaw dropping significance, if you would like your property featured on my blog, it’s simple, don’t list with the other agent, list your property for sale with me. Not only will you get exposure here, but I’ll expose the hell out of it on the other networks of which I am a part. It will also be on Trulia, Zillow, Realtor.com, and likely show up in more online searches for your address, as a result of the keyword post I can do for it here.

So before you sign that listing agreement with another agent who is selling you on the glossy brochures that end up in recycling (often in landfill), or a fancy website that simply floats out in cyberspace, remember that print advertising is pretty much dead, and Google, Trulia, Zillow, and keyword search are king. More than 80% of home buyers begin and end their home search online, so you have every reason to want to be on theFrontSteps.com, and I’d be happy to help get you here.

I am an industry leader in San Francisco blogging and web traffic, and my brokerage, Zephyr Real Estate, is also number one when it comes to internet, search engine optimization, and generally capturing buyers where it matters most…on the internet.

If you still decide to list your property for sale with another San Francisco agent (it’s cool, I won’t take it personally), that agent is free to contact me directly and request that I advertise your property here (for a fee). If you’d still like to try to get me to blog about your property, send it as a “tip”, and you’ll likely have better luck getting featured on this site.

As always, thanks to all of the loyal readers I have, and the many clients that have chosen to work with me already. At some point, I won’t be as busy as I am now, and will pick up blogging where I left off. With that, I end the gloating and will go back to being my humble old self.

Cheers!

Alex

PocketListings.net Version 2.0 Goes Live: Introduces Real Estate Match™; Privacy Options; Sharing; Saved Search; Email Alerts; Principals Only; More!

I’m pleased to announce the rollout this past weekend of PocketListings.net version 2.0!

It is jam-packed with new features to help you, the agent, do more deals, and give you, the client, more options when selling and searching for real estate. There is a fabulous tutorial on all of the great new features and how they work, so please take five minutes of your day and check it out.

Some major new features to highlight:

Real Estate Match™: As buyers and sellers post to the site, we do a little Match.com magic to match criteria and facilitate a potential transaction. Agents can post any property they have that is not listed on MLS, and ALL of their buyers looking for homes. If no matches are found immediately, when some do show up, emails will be sent. It’s online dating for real estate.

Privacy Options On Posts: Pocket listings are tricky in that some clients want the most exposure possible, while others want little to none, but they still want their property sold. When an agent posts a pocket listing on our site it is immediately searchable, but agent controls what information about the property to share, and with whom.

Principals Only: Inspired by our friends in commercial real estate, we give you the option to request anybody that contact you act as a Principal.

Saved Searches For Members: Do a search, save it. Refer to it later. Get emailed when posts fitting that criteria show up on our site. Simplifying your success.

Sharing with Social Networking: Whether you are the person that posted, or you’re someone browsing our site and you come across an opportunity that you absolutely must share, we make it easy. Using third party applications you can “Like” or “Send” any posts via Facebook, and share or repost via Twitter, LinkedIn, email, Digg, Stumbleupon, and so much more. Do a post, spread the word, and tell those in your circle to spread the word too.

Email Notifications of New Matches: Whether you save a search, or posted to our site and we’re looking for matches for you, we’ll notify you via email when something shows up on our site that might be a match.

How We Use Twitter To Get Posts More Exposure And Deliver Results In Real Time: It’s pretty simple really. Every post that hits our site is fed to our Twitter profile. It becomes searchable and we create hashtags for the city (#city) and a unique hashtag for our site that allows Twitter followers to see results only in their city of interest (#plcity). The more followers we get (and we’re getting a lot), the more exposure you get to your post (respecting your privacy options).

Those are just a couple of the big new features we released with this version. We actually have several more features lined up that we’re hoping to release as soon as possible.

We’ve already been written up in Top Agent Magazine, and press inquiries are coming in. The bottom line is that there is more real estate opportunity out there than what is on MLS, and clients deserve an alternative. Please help us help you by spreading the word and using our site today!

Ich Bin Camping!


I know, I know, I know….it should be “Ich gehe Camping”, or “Ich bin Camping gegangen”, but “Ich bin ein Berliner” so wtf…
theFrontSteps.com is shut down for the week. I’m camping. I’m getting dirty. I’m soaking up the sun. I’m riding my bike. I’m eating and drinking like a king. I’m not working. But, if you need real estate help immediately (the standard Realtor dilemma), send an email, and I’ll make sure someone can help you.

Nominate theFrontSteps (Alexander Clark) As “San Francisco’s Most Valuable Blogger”…Thanks!

A little recognition is always nice. Dear readers, please take a second to nominate theFrontSteps for Most Valuable Blog in San Francisco. After all these years of providing all of this real estate and San Francisco insight, I’d really appreciate it. I suppose theFrontSteps fits under the categories, Lifestyle, Local Affairs, and Everything Else.

Thank You!

Cleaning House On theFrontSteps

Hello all (those of you that are left),

I’m going to be doing some house cleaning on this here blog. I’ve already said my goodbyes to the handful of other writers that contributed content here, so the “we” is gone…it’s all me, all the time.

theFrontSteps apparently doesn’t display on iPhones or iPads, and that is not cool. So, if you, or anyone you know, is a wizard with WordPress and can easily fix my theme or create an entirely new one, I’m all ears.

So let’s see if I can keep this thing going on a regular basis on my own. Just because I’m writing it myself, doesn’t mean I’m not open to all of your tips, insight, and topics to discuss. I want to hear your questions, and I’d love to help all of your friends/family with their real estate endeavors, as it’s my experiences in the field that give me 90% of the content you see on this site.

I’m going to try to keep it all about real estate, but that tends to get a bit boring in my world, so don’t be surprised if you see totally “off topic” posts and things that have nothing to do with anything you’ve ever seen on this blog before.

Thanks! Let’s blog.

Our Site for Pocket Listings (a.k.a “Off Market” or “Not on MLS”) properties is coming soon, and already causing quite a stir, a lot of buzz, and we’d even go so far as prompting a bit of fear in some people’s eyes.

So…what should we talk about here?

Close Encounters Of The Blogger/Realtor Kind

Yesterday, I had a client meeting, but didn’t actually get to meet the client (long story), but the boyfriend was there to fill in, and I got this email today (edited for flow) that just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy:

Hey Alex,

Thanks for stopping by yesterday! Sorry I couldn’t make it. Thought I’d share the conversation I had with my boyfriend when I got home:

Boyfriend said “Have you met him?”
Me: “No, not in person.”
BF: “He seems pretty cool for a Realtor.”
Me: “He’s pretty cool for a human.”

Thanks for that! We’ll get together soon!

Oh but wait! According to this D-Bag, my numbers aren’t where they should be, so I’ll have to come back today and get you to sign on the dotted line. Okay?

If You’re Gonna Relocate To San Francisco, Now You Know A “Best” Blog To Help You

Much to our surprise, we popped up on Relocation.com as one of the “Best Real Estate Blogs In San Francisco”.

We love a good review and you know we’re sharing it with you, so tell your friends:

The Front Steps from Alex Clark [that's me!] is a great guide to San Francisco real estate, including market observations, interesting tidbits on the city itself, nice photography and a snarky style that makes for interesting reading.

This is definitely not your typical real estate agent blog – and we can be thankful for that [Amen!].

Sometimes agents can take the blog thing a little too seriously and never dare show a little leg when writing. Clark has no problem with that. His walkabout category is a particularly fun and insightful read.

Lively comments section as well. It’s the kind of blog I’d read just to see what’s going on San Francisco real estate wise, even if I wasn’t moving there.

We’ll take it! And we thank relocation.com for the kind words. We do tend to be a bit snarky, but at least now I can tell my mom it’s paying off!

theFrontSteps Goes Tweet!

twitter21

I’ve done the sfnewsletter, and this here blog for years now, and believe me when I say I love(d) every minute of it. They are both, quite simply, an incredible drain on time. So…I’m spending more time on my Twitter page talking about things…among them San Francisco real estate (of course). If I could figure out how to get my Sold Properties Reports to populate on Twitter, that would be a great thing! (Techies?)

I invite you to check it out, and be patient while I get through this busy spell and hopefully will resume blogging San Francisco Real Estate in the not so distant future, or move on to the next great thing to keep you informed on our market.

Oh…and we’re building a new site for all of you Realtors out there. Make sure you subscribe to receive our posts via email, so you don’t miss the launch of that technology, and a chance to DO MORE DEALS!

Summer Of Living, A Letter From The Editor

It’s officially Summer (for elementary schoolers), and as I’m a father of one such child and another pre pre-schooler (no typo), that means my time just vaporized more than it already had. As a result, focus is on family, fun, and selling real estate. Posting on the site will be lighter than normal, but every now and then I’ll certainly get a wild hair and post a ton. Keep coming back, tell your friends, submit tips, and better yet sign up for email delivery of theFrontSteps, so you don’t miss a thing when we do get around to posting new content. You can also check that Twitter thing I recently got going.

If you’re a writer and have something to say about San Francisco, San Francisco Real Estate, or just real estate, feel free to drop us a line (thefrontsteps@gmail.com), and we’d be happy to see what you’ve got, and post your content to our site. Same goes if you have a question about real estate, or need agent representation for buying/selling a home in San Francisco.

As always, thanks for reading and thanks for telling your friends.
