  • When my wife and I decided to move up to San Francisco, we knew the real estate market would be incredibly challenging. From our first conversation with Alex, we recognized that he understood what it took to find the right property and make a compelling bid. It was an arduous five-month process, but Alex never tired in his search for our perfect home. He maintained the right balance of enthusiasm and realism when it came to choosing our bids. I consider it a mark of his good instincts that we came within a hair’s breadth of winning several earlier bids that we ultimately lost, since it meant that we were making offers that were competitive without being foolishly high. Once we found the amazing home we’re now in, Alex worked tirelessly to help us put together a winning bid—it takes a lot more than just choosing the right number, by the way—and close on time, despite a string of unexpected complications and swerves along the way. We can’t recommend Alex highly enough!

  • Alex thanks for selling my home as quickly and painless as possible at a price way beyond my expectation! I especially liked that you provided expert advice/service from staging, lighting and photography to make this a success. Using [electronic signature solutions] for all document signing made my life so much easier, and not to mention saving wasted paper from going into the environment. You keep up with the latest trends, you have access to new and potential audience/followers via social networking sites, and you’re just damn good at what you do so, THANKS!!!!
  • My husband Jon and I wanted to take a minute to share our great experience working with Alex. He knows the SF market so well and was able to help us get staged and ready to sell very quickly. We were on the market for 1 day before receiving 3 offers (2 all cash!). All were well over asking and we closed 10 days later! We’d be very happy to work with Alex again and highly recommend him.

  • Alex is fabulous. He's super knowledgeable, personable, completely reliable, responsive, honest, thorough and on your side. Also very smart. He's the guy you want. I found him through a web search while living in Seattle and working on a relocation to SF. Stumbled onto his blog and figured that the person writing that blog was the person we wanted on our case to find our house for us. Turns out it was an excellent plan. My husband and I both love him and 4 years later still love our house. SF is an insane real estate market and Alex knows it like the back of his hand and knows how to play the game. And win! He might even turn you onto a little gem of a neighborhood you've never heard of before, like he did for my cousin. Great, talented guy, has a really lovely family, and is tops at what he does. Recommend him 100%.

  • Like a lot of SFNewsletter readers, I figured Alex would be either too busy or simply uninterested in representing a first time buyer with a sub-seven figure budget. Ten months of searching and four offers later, we’re homeowners, and he’s still returning my calls…The cool thing about Alex is he’s new-school enough to embrace technology’s influence over his profession, but old-school enough to hold your sweaty hand through every step of escrow. Bottom line, if you’re looking to be escorted from property to property in your agent’s Mercedes while being lavishly praised for your exquisite taste and style, Alex ain’t your guy. But if you’re looking for consummate San Francisco market expertise, every tool you’ll ever need to find and evaluate your properties, and a Tiger Woods-like closing mentality – hell, you’re already reading his newsletter, posting to his blog, and god forbid you’re receiving his twitter banter – seriously, why use anyone else?!
