I probably won’t do any blogging next week, so have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

SF Real Estate Market Cools (Sort OF) – sfnewsletter 11/14/14

sfn_logo2I published another edition of sfnewsletter, chock full of market data, and great info like this:

“The San Francisco market definitely cooled after the overheated feeding frenzy of the first half of the year. The competition between buyers for new listings declined to more rational levels: Homes that might have received 5 to 10 offers earlier in the year received 1 or 2 or 3…”

It also includes a link to: Top 20 Overbids; Top 20 Underbids; Stalefish (Properties on the market 30+ days); Recent Sales; and of course New Listings. It’s a perfect way to keep an eye on the market in your area, as well as a great resource for all of you buyers out there. You can access the entire sfnewsletter by following this link. To have each new issue sent directly to you, just sign up to receive it via sfnewsletter.com.

For you Realtors out there wishing you could send The Goods to your clients, you can. Just contact me and I’ll get you set up.

Have a great weekend, and happy house hunting!

SOLD | 694 Hilary Drive, Tiburon, California


I am happy to report I just helped some buyers secure this wonderful mid-century property in Tiburon (that’s North over the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County for those of you not familiar with our area). Located at 694 Hilary Drive, this 4 bed, 2 bath single family home has great charm and character, a beautiful back yard with amazing views, and happy new homeowners. I was able to position my clients’ offer as the best offer out of 18! We just closed for $1,482,000. Congratulations to my buyers, and hello Marin County!

Feel free to contact me for the deets, and if you’re one of the thousands of San Franciscans considering a move over to Marin, not only can I help you sell your San Francisco home for top dollar, but I can help you buy in Marin too.
