“As a broker myself, I know quality when I see it” – Happy Client

Thank you to my wonderful client that has taken the time to share a few thoughts about recently working with me:

“Loved Alex. Can’t say it any other way. Never have I dealt with an agent who represented me with such a level of honesty and transparency. He gave me the time that I needed and we closed in record time. As a broker myself, I know quality when I see it. The house is everything and more — incredibly happy.” – Daniele

SOLD (In One Day) | 192 Seal Rock Dr. #2 – Outer Richmond

Remember when I said, “Something tells me this property won’t last long, so don’t drag your feet“? I wasn’t kidding. We put this on MLS Monday for $659,000, received two cash (pre-emptive) offers on Tuesday, and we closed for $735,000 today…not bad for an Outer Richmond 853 square foot, one bedroom TIC.


There is an art to this kind of result when selling a property, and it doesn’t come from throwing a sign up, and opening your front door. If you’re thinking about selling your property, or know anybody else who might be pondering the bags of money they’re sitting on, give me a shout. I’m here to help.

The property details:

Cole Valley Property Gets 30 Offers

135parnassus
Because one offer isn’t enough, 135 Parnassus (a teeny – tiny 1192 sqft, 2 bed, 1 bath condo) in the heart center of Cole Valley, just blew the roof off of reality. Sure, priced crazy low at $799,000 (actually, I would have priced it similarly because it did have some issues), but still…30 offers? Come on!

I do know roughly where this will sell, but have been asked not to share pricing info, so check back, contact me, or better yet – get on my list to receive real time sold property reports to your inbox every other Friday. (Sign up at sfnewsletter.com and get “The Goods”.)

The agent kindly informed me, “We also have a solid backup offer”, and my response, “You actually have 29.” Ahhh…to be a seller in San Francisco.

And didn’t I just report the market might be cooling…sort of?

Wowza.
