The List That Just Won’t Quit | San Francisco’s Top 10 Overbids Of The Week

To say the Richmond District single family home market is hot right now is a wee little understatement. It’s white hot.

Overbid of $712,000 aside, it’s another $1100 per square foot sale in an area of town previously undiscovered and overlooked. I guess the secret is out

74 Winfield Street 76 2-4 Units 29 $995,000 $1,320,000 32.66%

Special mention to my listing at 849 44th Ave that barely made it to the list even as nuts as our situation there was!

These lists are very “real-time”, and a good indication of pockets of our market. For a broader look at the San Francisco market I continually refer people to my favorite resource in Patrick Carlisle at Paragon Real Estate:
30+ Years of San Francisco Real Estate Cycles
Preliminary Indications of Direction of the San Francisco 2017 Market

Have a great weekend! It’s gonna be a cracker, so get out and enjoy.

SOLD | 2117 Larkin St. | Russian Hill | $1,025,000

I’m pleased to announce the successful (off market) sale of 2117 Larkin in the quintessential San Francisco neighborhood, Russian Hill. This property is a top floor, one bedroom, one bathroom condominium with one car parking, hardwood floors, gas fireplace, high ceilings, and a large open floor plan great for entertaining.

We don’t have any pictures of it, as we sold it by way of my affiliation with Top Agent Network, and saved the sellers a mountain of renovations required to get it up to its full potential. In then end, we showed it to about eight parties, received multiple offers, and sold for a very handsome $1,025,000, which put it well over $1000 per square foot.

Congratulations to my clients, the sellers, as well as the buyer who surely got a great deal in an amazing location with little competition. A win, win, win, win.

If you are considering a sale of your property, there are many ways to skin that cat, so give us a shout if you’d like to discuss.

For Sale | Eco-Friendly Art Deco In Downtown San Francisco | $749,000

Tastefully, and eco-consciously remodeled 12th Floor one bedroom, one bathroom unit with amazing views of San Francisco in The Crown Towers – an exquisitely maintained & managed elegant Art Deco CO-OP Building built in 1926, and located just two blocks from Union Square.

SOLD! | 1957 11th Ave | Golden Gate Heights | $1,400,000

There is a story to this one…Nonetheless, I’m pleased to report the (finally!) successful sale of this amazing Golden Gate Heights Property.

Nestled in the hills of Golden Gate Heights with wonderful vistas to the North/North East, surrounded by beautiful trees and a lush garden, and tastefully remodeled for the minimalist in all of us, including a painstakingly thought out master suite on the lower level, which opens to the garden, 1957 11th Ave is the home you don’t want to miss.


Having found this wonderfully crafted home built in 1948, the architect/owner of this home set out on a journey to create an oasis of minimalist living and design aesthetic nestled into the hills of this vibrant and bustling city of San Francisco. The kitchen was remodeled in 2008 with a focus on clean lines and simple living while maintaining the charm of the original home. In 2014 the lower level was completely remodeled incorporating a designer master suite with walk-in closet and ultra modern master bathroom complete with radiant floor heat, Hans Grohe fixtures, Ariostea Italian High-Tech Wood tile, and Toto toilet.

Not wanting the upstairs bath to be outdone, it too underwent an extensive designer remodel in early 2016 also with radiant floor heat, Ariostea Italian High-Tech Wood floor tile, Honed Italian MaxFine Calacatta wall tile, Toto toilet, and a wonderfully situated window which make tub soaks and showers feel as if you’re in the garden.

In addition to the remodeled designer master suite, kitchen, and luxury baths, this home contains a total of three bedrooms, approximately 1595 square feet, parking for one car, a woodburning fireplace, hardwood floors with original detailing, high ceilings, views, hallway skylight, a “Romeo & Juliet” balcony from the second bedroom to the garden, a deck off of the kitchen perfect for outdoor dining/entertainment (and of course barbecuing), plantation shutters, new water main, new furnace, tankless water heater, stackable washer & dryer, recessed lighting, and a newly installed irrigation system to keep the amazingly lush garden alive and well.

This home…you must see.
