1177 California, Gramercy Towers Pool

SOLD | 1177 California #1024, Nob Hill, San Francisco

I’m pleased to announce the successful off market purchase of an awesome unit at Gramercy Towers in San Francisco’s one and only Nob Hill district. My clients got word of this new listing, called me up, and we snagged it before it had a chance to go to MLS. They are thrilled, seller is happy, all is good.

Two bedrooms, two baths, remodeled, views, and great layout. Sales price $1,650,000.

Tired of getting beat out by multiple buyers…you gotta get somebody like me on your side. I have great relations with the majority of San Francisco realtors, I’m a member of the Top Agent Network, and I have my finger on the off market pulse, although my clients sniffed this one out…but that’s what it takes! Teamwork.

Representing buyers and sellers of amazing and unique property is what I do. This property is no exception.

Contact me, I’ll help you out.

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

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

Gorgeous Ocean Views

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.

Lumina SF | 200 Offers On First 52 Units Released | Second Release Happening Now

luminaview1

Continuing to bring you all the updates on one of San Francisco’s most hyped and happening new developments, Lumina SF, I wanted to quickly follow up on the last post I did with updated pricing on the first release of units. For full details about the Lumina SF development, including amenities and finishes, check out my original post.

So how did that first release go? Was it as insane as everyone expected? I’d say yes. From a reliable source:

Lumina received about 200 offers for the 52 released units. A few were accepted and most were asked to come back with “highest and best.” Additional units were released to absorb more of the interest, resulting in approximately 80 sales. The next release MIGHT BE first come, first serve but buyers that have not prevailed will be given priority, if possible. The next release will not be for a week or more as they are swamped, getting this group of contracts written.

That’s old news. Second release is happening now, and I’d be happy to help you secure a unit in this amazing luxury building.

Telegraph Hill Neighbors: “Our Opposition Is Unconditional”

Ahhh….neighbors. You love ’em. You hate ’em. You can’t live in San Francisco without ’em, and you certainly can’t easily remodel a home to today’s standards without opposition from them. Check out what just hit our inbox:
telhill1small1
If, for some reason, you can’t see the letter, which we uploaded as an image, we’ll go ahead and tell ya what it says:

Dear Mr. [deleted]:
We are neighbors on Telegraph Hill who will oppose any changes to the building envelope at [deleted] owned by [deleted] in this historic district of Telegraph Hill. While the Hill has suffered through renovations in the past, projects such as yours have occurred with extreme environmental changes. Water drainage issues on Telegraph Hill regarding a nearby project created unfavorable slope instability–buildings have been lost and a large boulder ended up on Sansome Street. Additionally, neighbors on [deleted] and surrounds are tired of construction noise and delays in completion caused by projects such as yours. A recent project took 10 years and is still incomplete.

Telegraph Hill is a historic district whose character depends upon building ownership which understands the value of building enhancement not as building expansion, but building enhancement as careful care in keeping up properties in their historic dimension. We find your application to be sadly ignorant of the need to abide by the common elements vital to the neighborhood and its character.

Your proposal to enhance the property needs to be cognizant of the historic preservation without additional elevation or facade changes in all directions. Projects like yours have been attempted in the past and have turned out badly.

While we many of us may be away during your pre-application meeting time, please understand that our opposition is unconditional.

Sincerely,
Your neighbors and friends on Telegraph Hill
[Thirteen names deleted]

Just another bump in the road for a developer out there trying to bring a home that has sat vacant since WWII (yes, that long) into our housing stock…before it falls off the hill or gets consumed by the pests and rodents feasting on its rotting self. But Hey! It’s “historic”.

[Update: We’re told none of the authors of this letter took the time to actually visit the property at the open house outreach, and none have contacted the developer, or the architect (aside from this letter) to begin a dialogue of constructive or courteous negotiations.]

You gotta love San Francisco and all the righteousness it preserves…
