You like dags? “Sexy, dog-friendly” condo awaits (1944 Green St.)

Ahhhh…San Francisco real estate is so much fun isn’t it? Our market is inundated with agents (4000+ at last count), there’s a growing number of real estate bloggers out there trying to separate themselves from the pack, and the amount of Realtor “marketing” hitting our Inbox is out of control. We like to call this RealSpam, and today’s little nugget reminded us of a line in one of our favorite movies…“Snatch” (The line isn’t actually on any clip we’ve found, but it’s where Brad Pitt turns and asks “you like dags” in the heavy pikey accent.)

“Sexy, Dog-friendly Condo one block off Union Street”


[You gotta love that peak-a-boo Golden Gate Bridge view.]

The moral of this story, 1944 Green was just reduced in price to $1,695,000 and the marketing has turned to the canine loving crowd. (Whether or not a building accepts dogs is actually a very common question when selling condos, but we’re not sure it needs to be the focal point. Of course, if it’s not selling, why not try.)

Hold on….this listing has more story. It is the first we’ve seen where we will learn (without getting into contract) what the sellers will miss most about their home…


Our favorite line…”Practically no stairs or drama coming in and out of home with my belongings”.

And for you to debate…”Green Street is like living in the palm of the hand of Pacific Heights-flat, gentle, yet still spectacular”.

Finally, this goes to show that if you select and track homes that were previously out of reach or just a pipe dream, every dog has its day, and yours might be just around the corner.

    Speaking of districts… Does Cow Hollow not exist anymore? I keep seeing listings on Green showing up as “Pacific Heights.” Ok, sure the CHA doesn’t really extend east of Steiner… and obviously it’s more advantageous to say Pac Heights.. but, come on…

    You had me at “DAGS!”

    Brilliant as always Alex. What I’ll miss is the smell of arrogance as it wafts away with the seller…

    I worked for one of the most creative ad writers in this city when it comes to real estate, but this takes it to the next level.

    Hey sleepiguy- kinda reminds you of all the lisitngs that are no longer in Western Addition, I mean Lower Pacific Heights on the otherside!

    We’re renaming this area Cow Heights. What do you think?

    This is my listing, and my client and I got a kick out of your piece Alex. We didn’t like reducing the price, but we do love dags and good writing. By the way, the building accepts dogs, cats and birds, and we’re still accepting offers.
