Sustainable down to its very foundation, this century-old building (1 Ecker) was painstakingly restored and updated with brand-new modern interior fixtures and finishes. This top floor, Junior 1br, 1ba unit features soaring 12′ ceilings, exposed brick, open kit/liv area, bamboo floors, Cesarstone kit countertops, espresso cabinetry, stackable Whirlpool High Efficiency W&D, Bosch Energy Star appliances, addl. storage, bike parking, & shared roof deck/bbq area. Furniture is negotiable. Walk to shops, restaurants, public transportation, Ferry Building, and so much more. This is the perfect Urban dwelling for anyone.
On a side note, this was the first ever Open House I’ve done on a Monday evening and the traffic was through the roof. Perhaps this could be the first step to getting buyers, sellers, and agents their Sundays back! Many, many of the people through the door preferred the Monday evening showing over the standard Sunday 2-4pm window for open houses, citing their inability to do anything on Sundays because this window falls smack dab in the middle of the day. My vote is to get our weekends back. What about you?
I’ll have it open again:
Thursday 4/17 from 5:30-7:30pm
Saturday 4/19 from 2-4pm (my colleague will be there)
Tuesday 4/22 from 2:30-4pm
Offers, if any, will be reviewed Wednesday 4/23 @ noon.
From a recent seller represented transaction, in which we not only secured an all cash offer close in five days, but my clients are renting the property back, sold the furniture, and received $1000 worth of wine from the buyer. Bam!
Mike and I wanted to share our experience with our phenomenal realtor Alex Clark. From the get go, Alex knew we had a time crunch and was on the ball from day one. With his network of contacts, his social media outlets, and getting us on the front page of SFgate – we received multiple offers on our condo and closed escrow in five days with an all cash offer that was well over asking! We would highly recommend Alex for all your San Francisco real estate needs!

I can do the same for you, but no guarantees on the wine.
This top floor, one bedroom, one bath, ultra luxury condominium in the heart of San Francisco will be hitting the market (with any luck) on Friday August 9th [It's now officially on the market], but since you’re a fan of theFrontSteps, you get to see it here first.
This unit is not only on the top floor, but also on the North East corner and features soaring 12 foot ceilings, open kitchen/living area, bamboo flooring, walk-in closet, custom kitchen pantry, Cesarstone kitchen countertops with bar seating, espresso cabinetry, stackable Kenmore High Efficiency Washer & Dryer, Bosch Energy Star appliances (Dishwasher, Gas Range & Hood), Samsung French Door Refrigerator, microwave, and a 64″ Samsung Plasma TV already perfectly mounted to the wall! This unit comes with additional storage, bike parking, and all of the furniture could be included as well. (Parking for one car is currently subleased nearby at 18 Lansing St for $225/mo. Although it is highly likely the sublease would be honored, it cannot be guaranteed.)
What makes 1 Ecker so attractive and in such demand? 1 Ecker (16 Jessie) is an appealing blend of modern and timeless San Francisco charm, and sustainable down to its very foundation. The original century-old building structure was painstakingly restored and updated with brand-new modern interior fixtures and finishes in every bedroom and bath. The soaring arched windows are 100% recycled, and all of the units were restored with sustainability in mind. Nestled among some of San Francisco’s tallest structures, the grand windows and high ceilings fill this residence with generous amounts of natural light, while the original brick structure is a welcome backdrop for modern, sophisticated living.
1 Ecker’s common area amenities include the comfortable rooftop lounge, with grill and plenty of seating for entertaining a large group or enjoying a quiet dinner for two. Sleek, comfortable modular seating allows for adjustment to meet your group’s needs, as art form meets function. Exotic foliage in vibrant hues frames an antique Balinese water fountain, a tranquil centerpiece. The lounge grill is ready to serve up favorites year-round.. The interior courtyard offers a stylish visual backdrop featuring exotic, vibrant foliage. Common areas are maintained by the building’s Home Owners Association, and monthly HOA dues of $500.68 for this unit help serve to keep them in pristine order. HOA dues also include water, garbage, and professional property management services.
The location of this wonderful city home (go ahead…map it) puts you steps away from tons of shops, restaurants, clubs, art museums (MOMA), theaters (Metreon), Outdoor Parks (Yerba Buena), conference centers (Moscone), World Champion baseball stadium (Go Giants!), and so much more. Multiple Zipcar® locations are within walking distance for pay-as-you-go car convenience, and the future Transbay Transit Center steps away at 1st and Mission Streets will house 11 transportation systems, including AC Transit, BART, Caltrain, Muni &; Amtrak, for easy access to all of the Bay Area and beyond.
This is certainly a one-of-a-kind unit in a one-of-a-kind property that you won’t want to miss.

It’s been busy…so let’s share some testimonials, get back to blogging, which in turn will create more testimonials. Sound good? Cool…
Alex knows the San Francisco market very well. This helped us, as sellers, to understand what different buyers value and what to expect. He is also adaptable and efficient. Our sale was the first resale in a new condominium, but Alex did not let that slow things down. He successfully navigated the administrative overhead of the situation. In addition, when we sold our home, privacy was of absolute importance. To meet our needs, Alex came up with an agent-first marketing approach that leveraged his pocket listings network (PocketListings.net). He also used social media (Facebook, Twitter, theFrontSteps.com Blog) to get the word out before and after our open house. In under a month from initial contact, even over the seasonally slow Christmas holiday, Alex obtained multiple offers for us. He then helped us identify the most suitable buyer, which ensured us a fair price and a smooth close. We would highly recommend working with Alex for anything real estate in San Francisco.

Thanks guys! Glad it worked out so smoothly for you, and the buyer. And very happy we were able to navigate all that “administrative overhead”…nice way to put it.
Sellers, let’s get your place on the market! We not only need the inventory, but you stand to make substantial gains.
