SOLD | Victorian Single Family in Cole Valley / Haight Ashbury | $2,250,000 Off Market

This wonderful late / early century Victorian home has all the right bones in all the right places, including a grand entryway / staircase, wood floors, fireplace, high ceilings, large garage, 4 bedrooms, yard, and potential, potential, potential.

SOLD | 707 Cole St. | Cole Valley | $2,606,000

Quite possibly one of the busiest sets of open houses I’ve ever held, with nearly 250-300 people through the door, 707 Cole St. has changed hands to a pair of wonderful people that will hopefully enjoy this home as much as my clients did. Listed for $2,495,000, in the end it didn’t go nuts, but we still got over list and closed at $2,606,000.

On a side note, I have TWO properties in Cole Valley that are similar to this, and they are not on MLS. So if you, or anyone you know, are interested in an off market Cole Valley property, get in touch.

707 Cole Marketing Remarks:

This timeless Cole Valley single family home situated in one of the most desirable locations in all of San Francisco is a circa 1896 Victorian loaded with period details and charm, and updated for today’s standards. Just two blocks to the heart of Cole Valley, the N-Judah, Golden Gate Park, Haight-Ashbury, and so many more iconic San Francisco locations, this is truly a must-see property.


Carefully maintained to preserve the era in which it was built and upgraded with the finest modern amenities, 707 Cole features a formal entry/foyer and grand staircase leading upstairs to three of the four generously proportioned bedrooms (including master with it’s own fireplace), one bathroom, and conveniently located stackable washer and dryer. The entire top floor is bathed in natural light and period charm, including well preserved, beautiful original wood floors, and access to the large attic.

The main level features gorgeous, newly refinished wood floors, a formal living room with fireplace, a formal dining room, also with fireplace and wonderful French doors that open to a private outdoor deck perfect for indoor/outdoor living when San Francisco weather delights. Also on this level is the modern kitchen with bar seating, granite countertops, custom cabinets, recessed lighting, Viking Gas Range, stainless appliances, and windows looking out on the Japanese maples and large avocado tree in the professionally landscaped backyard.

The recent, down to the studs, remodeled ground floor is a perfect space for extra guests, playroom, home office, or your teenager that wants his/her privacy. Complete with wood floors, open flow, custom wood closets and cabinetry, a modern bathroom addition, and amazing floor to ceiling pivot door that brings the outside in and truly makes the transition from indoor to outdoor living seamless, this fourth bedroom is a wonderful addition to the already amazing home. Also on this level is garage parking for two cars, and interior access to the mudroom with custom wood cabinets and heaps of additional storage for all of your toys, bikes, skis, boots and shoes.

The backyard was professionally designed and maintained with seating areas, lush plantings, excellent flow, and low maintenance artificial turf for year-round enjoyment.

Five Days Later And $361,000 Over, 849 44th Ave Sets New Price Per Square Foot Record In Outer Richmond

To say we knocked it out of the park on this wonderful Outer Richmond residence, like I did with 652 44th Ave would be an understatement…

Listed on a Friday morning, I got a call from an agent shortly thereafter asking if he could get his client in…so I obviously obliged. That day, same agent asked if they could write an offer now to “take it off the table”. The next day, three other buyers asked the same. The sellers and I respectfully declined all of the pre-emptive attempts, and asked the buyers to wait until our offer day 10 days later. Wait they did. After getting roughly 200 people through the door, we got nine offers, and two others that said they’d like to write at $1,250,000, so without actually saying it, I said it, “Don’t waste your time.”

After a slew of phone calls and negotiations, buyer #1..the same person that was the first person to see it, came up to where they needed to be, upped their offer to $1,410,000 and we closed 5 days later. (As a side note, it is often the first person to see a place that is the winner…keep that in mind.)

There you have it. Congratulations to buyers and sellers, and the Outer Richmond for being one of the hottest neighborhoods in all of San Francisco, at the moment. In case you’re wondering, that’s $1146 per square foot for the Outer Richmond.

To give you a little more indication of our market, as crazy as this Overbid was, it’s only #18 on the Top 20 Overbids!

From the original post:

For Sale | 849 44th Ave | Outer Richmond \ $1,049,000

Beautifully maintained, and recently remodeled Outer Richmond single family residence in the same family for almost 60 years. Pride of ownership extends generations back in this 1950s home. From the beautifully preserved original wood floors, to the wood burning fireplace, and incredibly large and well-maintained yard (with deck off the main living area), this three bedroom, one bath home with a large garage is ideal for those seeking a wonderful single family home in one of San Francisco’s hottest neighborhoods.

Just Sold! | 2412 22nd Ave | Parkside | $1,000,000

To say my clients didn’t absolutely score on this home is possibly the understatement of the year. When every house in the Parkside and Sunset is selling with multiple offers and at ridiculous prices, to be able to get in contract on one the day it hit MLS for well under market value in San Francisco is amazing…but we did it. I knew the “perfect storm” would come along, and it did. With a little luck, and a lot of persuasion, good things can happen to buyers in our market.

SOLD | 652 44th Ave | Outer Richmond | $1,547,777

Setting records in the Outer Richmond and throwing all the lucky 7’s on it: Listed $1,195,000 sold for $1,547,777
We got over 250 people through the door via our stellar marketing and online presence. In the end we handed out just about 30 disclosure packages (generally this is a gauge of potential “real” buyers), and ended up with 10 offers. All of them way over list, and even one higher than the sales price the sellers decided not to accept. Story on that in a coming soon blog post.

For Sale | 652 44th Ave | Outer Richmond | $1,195,000

“Outer Richmond Single Family Home Hits the Market, Buyers Everywhere Flock to See it”…so the headline could read. It’s been a long time since a home of this character, quality, and size has hit the market in the Outer Richmond, and you don’t want to miss it.
