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.

SOLD | 844 Haight St. | Hayes Valley / Lower Haight | $1,320,000

Finally got this one sold (over asking no less)! After getting in contract and falling out on two different occasions with two different buyers, the perfect pair came along in a deal put together by way of my Top Agent Network prior to coming BOM (Back On Market) again. Third time is a charm. For more details about this wonderfully complex set of transactions, how the market impacted this sale, how this property spent nearly 3 months on the market, and lessons I learned (yes, after 15 years every transaction still teaches me something new), give me a shout.

From the marketing…

So you wanna live in the action, do you? Well, I have just the place for you – 844 Haight sits on the dividing line between Haight Ashbury (considered Lower Haight), Hayes Valley, Buena Vista Park, NOPA, Alamo Square, the Divisadero Corridor, is one block away from the Duboce Triangle area…and you’re in luck, because it hits the market today.

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.

SOLD | 1011 23rd St. #10 | Dogpatch | $740,000

Dogpatch, San Francisco: according to Wikipedia “is located on the eastern side of the city, adjacent to the waterfront of the San Francisco Bay, and to the East of Potrero Hill. Its boundaries are Mariposa Street to the North, I-280 to the West, Cesar Chavez to the South, and the waterfront to the East. It contains housing, some remaining heavy industry, more recent light industry, and a new but growing arts district. In 2002 it became an officially designated historic district of the city of San Francisco….[and] there is no definitive explanation for the name

One thing we know for certain, Dogpatch
