We Just Beat The Closest Comp By $200,000

I’m pleased to announce my clients have successfully sold their Richmond District top floor condominium for $1,200,000 (listed at $949,000), or as I like to point out, $200,000 more than the most recent, closest competitor property on 26th Ave that listed almost the same day as we did.

It’s no coincidence we knocked it out of the park. It was strategy, patience, perseverance, and knowing how to finesse each offer (we received five) to their highest and best without them walking away. Congratulations to my clients that just set the bar for Central Richmond condos – the last area of the city you can still find a deal. Let the migration begin.

Luxury Condos Downtown , Yerba Buena at 16 Jessie

“Best Agent, Bar None, In San Francisco”

Recently, I had the pleasure of representing my client in the sale of his condominium in one of the most sought after locations and buildings in downtown San Francisco. Many people refer to this area as SOMA, some refer to it as FiDi (Financial District), some as the Barbary Coast, and others still as Yerba Buena. Regardless of what you call it, I call it a sale that far exceeded my client’s expectations and set a new price per square foot record in his building of $1233 per square foot. In the end, we received 16 offers, all over asking, and settled 31.31% above asking, and well above any recent comparable sale.

My client was so thrilled, he sent me this wonderful testimonial:

Best agent, bar none, in San Francisco

I had the good fortune of working with Alex Clark of Paragon Real Estate on the recent sale of my condo. Alex is extremely professional yet very personable and possesses a keen knowledge of the San Francisco real estate market. My unit was listed for only 11 days and received 16 excellent offers all well over the asking price.
If you are contemplating selling or buying in San Francisco, Alex Clark is a must in your strategy.

A VERY satisfied client.
-Peter

Many people will chalk this up as simply a sign of the times, but there is an art to garnering tremendous interest, multiple offers, and ultimately a successful, new high water mark sale. It also helps to have your property listed here on the most popular San Francisco Real Estate blog, so it can get press on the more most popular Curbed SF real estate blog. Buyers are online, that’s where I am, and that’s where your property will be.

Congratulations on your sale Peter, and all the success and good times in New York City. I’m definitely jealous of that one way ticket.

“It’s Not Everyday You Trust A Realtor To Buy A Home Sight Unseen”

Happy Holidays to all of you, and congratulations to some more happy clients on their purchase of one awesome San Francisco property!
IMG_3366

Our search for a home in San Francisco started after reading Alex’s site TheFrontSteps.com. We were impressed with his insight into the market and his interest in finding a property that fit our needs. Due to a job transfer, we had limited time to search for property and even less time to actually see what was available. Through many phone calls, text messages, and emails, Alex gave us a solid understanding of neighborhoods, prices, and how to make a competitive bid. It’s not everyday you trust a realtor enough to buy a home sight unseen, but Alex found us the perfect property! Alex listened to our needs and interests and found a home for us that we love, in a neighborhood that fits our lifestyle. And, did I mention that we did all this in less than 30 days? Thanks, Alex!

You’re so very welcome Kris, and you can’t imagine the relief I felt when you told me you loved the place! I was sweatin’ for days!

When Buying Luxury High Rise Property In Downtown San Francisco

I would like to thank my agent Alex Clark for his excellent and hard work in the past year for finding me the right place in this competitive market. My property just closed about one week ago, and I’m thrilled! I approached Alex over one year ago in search of a condo in downtown San Francisco. I had very specific and narrow requirements for the type of unit that I was looking for. I am a very busy professional with a challenging travel and work schedule. Alex was focused and determined to find me the right place with the right price. His swift approach and tireless work ethic helped me to secure the unit that meets all of my specs. He should be top of mind for anyone who would like to find a high-end piece of real estate in the city by the Bay. Alex is THE go-to-agent to have for your new home purchase!!!

“We Received Multiple Offers On Our Condo And Closed Escrow In 5 Days!” 16 Jessie a.k.a 1 Ecker

01-16jessie409-front-800res

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!
-Mike and Joe

I can do the same for you, but no guarantees on the wine.
