Holy hell that was a long one! In the end, we got it done. Congratulations to all involved. And to those readers that are looking for more blogging than just our recent sales, my apologies. We’re working on that too. Gotta make hay while the sun is shining, and get back to blogging about all that good real estate p*rn when we come up for air. In the meantime, there is always The Goods, which updates daily so you can track everything on your own.
Congratulations to my wonderful clients on their (way below list price) purchase of this amazing property known as the McCormick Queen Anne Flats just a stone’s throw away from Alamo Square Park.
Built in 1894 by architect Absalom J. Barnett, a resident of the Western Addition, for William and Margaret McCormick in the hope that their daughters would live close to them when they married, this magnificent storybook Queen Anne Victorian is 6,000+ square feet, and loaded with Victorian details.
What an amazing property! Congratulations to everyone involved. My client’s lender was outstanding, the other agent was easy to work with, which all made for a very smooth and ideal transaction. Thank you everyone for your professionalism, and calm.
Originally listed for $4,150,000, my clients scored it for $3,200,000.

It’s official…in San Francisco a million bucks barely buys you an (almost on the beach) beach bungalow…actually you need $1,050,000…and depending on what size waves you’re thinking of surfing at the most popular surf spot north of San Diego, you’ll want to consider ultra custom space-saving racks.
In case you’re wondering, it was listed at $699,000. It is close enough to catch the blowing Springtime Sand, so I guess you can call it a “beach bungalow”.
Surf is not up this weekend in San Francisco (Surprise!), but surely you know a friend with a boat. Happy Memorial Day weekend!

I’m pleased to announce the recent sale of unit 11E in this wonderful brand new Luxury High Rise Residence in Downtown San Francisco, located at 338 Main Street, better known as Lumina SF.
My clients are the proud owners of an amazing 2 bedroom, 2 bath, spectacular view home.
I’m pleased to report the sale of this amazing property, which we were able to get featured not only on SFGate (Cole Valley Queen Anne with fabulous wallpaper for $2.695), but also Curbed (Queen Anne Done Up in Designer Style Looks for $2.695), and possibly even in San Francisco Cottages & Gardens just closed today for a whopping $505,000 over list price at $3,200,000. Considering we were targeting a $2.9-$3M sale, I’d consider this knocked out of the park.
Congratulations to my wonderful clients on an extraordinary Cole Valley sale, as well as to the buyers who are sure to love this amazing home in an epic location.
It’s Friday! Yeah! (If you’re not a Realtor who works every weekend.) That means overbids, and look at that, another fixer takes the cake. This time it’s 554 Anderson in Bernal Heights, a 2 bed, 1 bath home listed for $549,000 and sold for $920,000. As for the rest of the top 10, I think this is the first time we’ve seen the list not contain one single property over $2,000,000.

Have a great weekend. As always, I’m here to help you, and everyone you know, buy and sell San Francisco/Bay Area real estate. Just give me a shout.
I’m happy to report my client successfully beat out multiple buyers on this great two bedroom home at 220 Mullen in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights neighborhood. Listed at $799,000, our original offer was countered by the seller, along with some of the others (we call that “multiple counter offer”), and low and behold, we prevailed. The home is perfect for my client now and in the future.
Congratulations! You deserved this “win” after those other painful losses.
