818 35th Ave | Outer Richmond | $2,188,000

We often get clients looking to exchange one rental property for another, we call this a 1031 exchange. By definition, well, you can read the full definition here. It basically allows an investor to “defer” paying capital gains taxes on an investment property when it’s sold. There you go. All you really need to know.

1010 Cole St | Cole Valley | $1,480,000

What do you do in San Francisco when it takes you more than two weeks to get a property sold? You adjust, just like we did here. After a couple weeks on the market without being painted or staged, the feeling was brewing inside we needed to shift our focus. Add to that, we were in the thick of the Summer doldrums. Alas, we pulled this baby off the market for a couple weeks, painted critical rooms, changed some lighting, staged, and bammo! Sold. Continue reading “1010 Cole St | Cole Valley | $1,480,000”

1771 39th Ave | Outer Sunset | $1,500,000

2527 42nd Ave | Outer Parkside | $1,646,000

It was a battle to get this one at 2527 42nd Ave, that’s for sure. With 20 offers on hand for the sellers to choose from, at least 5 of them over $1,600,000 (list price $1,095,000), and me putting this deal together during one of the best snowstorms of the last 10 years (I’m that guy on the lift on his phone, fingers freezing, when it’s DUMPING two inches an hour and cell reception is popping in and out.), Continue reading “2527 42nd Ave | Outer Parkside | $1,646,000”

1143-45 Jackson St. | Nob Hill | $2,150,000

I had the pleasure of representing some repeat clients on their purchase of this well located and highly sought after two unit property at 1143-45 Jackson for $2,150,000. We had to go to battle, for sure, but in the end we beat out 11 other buyers (including one higher) to seal the deal. The story on this is very interesting… Continue reading “1143-45 Jackson St. | Nob Hill | $2,150,000”

SOLD | 456 Belvedere | Cole Valley | $4,500,000

Congratulations to my buyers that just scored this AAA located Cole Valley home at 456 Belvedere. We were the first people to see it, and we wrote an offer that day. They went big and fast to win, and I told ’em they can’t ever move. It’s that kind of house. It’s that kind of market, and it’s those kinds of tactics that get you property in San Francisco. This market waits for nobody. Continue reading “SOLD | 456 Belvedere | Cole Valley | $4,500,000”

212 Steiner | Lower Haight / Hayes Valley | $1,250,000

Since it was an off market deal, we don’t have much info to share, especially pictures.

Congratulations to my buyer that just scored 212 Steiner, a two bed, one bath, Victorian in a ridiculously hip and happening neighborhood, perhaps soon to have it’s very own Blue Bottle (assuming the NIMBYs don’t have their way)…not that we measure hipness in terms of cafes around here, but it is a sweet area.

Anyhow, it’s done and dusted for $1,250,000, and we have another happy buyer and seller for the books. Continue reading “212 Steiner | Lower Haight / Hayes Valley | $1,250,000”

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.

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

Setting records in the Outer Richmond: 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.

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

Finally got this one sold!

From the marketing…

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. Continue reading “844 Haight St. | Hayes Valley / Lower Haight | $1,320,000”

762 Great Highway #3 | Outer Richmond/Ocean Beach | $1,250,000

You can’t buy property in San Francisco any further West…this is it…where the land ends and the Pacific Ocean begins. Marvel in the ebb and flow of ocean life from your living room (spot dolphins, whales, sea lions, surfers, kite surfers, and ships going by), escape the City life, catch every sunset from your couch kitchen or dining table, walk the beach every morning, experience the surrounding parks and abundant nature right out your front door. Continue reading “762 Great Highway #3 | Outer Richmond/Ocean Beach | $1,250,000”

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.

956 Elizabeth St | Noe Valley | $2,350,000

Congratulations to my clients that recently purchased this amazing single family view home in prime Noe Valley at 956 Elizabeth St. With vultures circling, we were able to beat the competition by submitting a pre-emptive offer at a price acceptable to the seller, avoid any frenzied bidding wars, and get it to stick…which it did.
Continue reading “956 Elizabeth St | Noe Valley | $2,350,000”

179 Carl | Cole Valley Victorian | $3,200,000

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 $2.9-$3M sale, I’d consider this knocked out of the park.
Continue reading “179 Carl | Cole Valley Victorian | $3,200,000”

1582 48th Ave | Outer Sunset | $815,000

To say we knocked it out of the park on this sale would be an understatement. As much as I love doing a stellar job for the sellers I represent, it honestly pains me when we set a new high water mark for San Francisco real estate sales, because it makes it that much harder for the next buyers out there trying to buy the next property that comes along. Continue reading “1582 48th Ave | Outer Sunset | $815,000”

192 Seal Rock Dr. #2 | Outer Richmond | $735,000

Remember when I said, “Something tells me this property won’t last long, so don’t drag your feet“? I wasn’t kidding. We put this on MLS Monday for $659,000, received two cash (pre-emptive) offers on Tuesday, and we closed for $735,000 today…not bad for an Outer Richmond 853 square foot, one bedroom TIC. Continue reading “192 Seal Rock Dr. #2 | Outer Richmond | $735,000”

1365 Scott #2 | Western Addition | $875,000

I’m happy to report we just knocked it out of the park on 1365 Scott #2, one of my recent listings in an amazingly hip-and-coming location. We had close to 150 or more people through the property, marketed a short 7 days, received multiple offers, and sold for $875,000 (listed $779,000), which sets the bar that much higher in that area. Continue reading “1365 Scott #2 | Western Addition | $875,000”

1487 Chestnut | Marina District | $1,050,000

Holy moly did this one go great, or what!? Top floor 1 bed, 1 bath condo with its own private deeded garage in an A+ Marina District location. After kindly declining multiple attempts to pre-empt offers, we stuck to our marketing plan, got roughly 250 parties through the door, reviewed 7 offers, and just closed for $1,050,000! Continue reading “1487 Chestnut | Marina District | $1,050,000”

220 Mullen | Bernal Heights | $1,015,000

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. Continue reading “220 Mullen | Bernal Heights | $1,015,000”

2186A 15th St., 2169 Folsom, 323 Church | Duboce Triangle | Inner Mission | Mission Dolores

As my client said on my LinkedIn profile, I pulled off a “hat trick that [he] thought was impossible in the crazy San Francisco real estate market…” by not only helping him win a 15 (or more) offer situation on 2169 Folsom (Rex Ray’s old pad), but also coordinating the off market sale of his condominium to New York buyers buying his home (2186A 15th St) sight unseen.  Continue reading “2186A 15th St., 2169 Folsom, 323 Church | Duboce Triangle | Inner Mission | Mission Dolores”

88 King St. | South Beach | $1,400,000

I have a great client that I showed all kinds of different properties to in all parts of the city. Turns out, he really liked South Beach and all it has to offer (proximity to water, Giants games, restaurants, vibrancy, downtown, etc.), but we just couldn’t find the right unit in the dream building (88 King St)…so I did a little digging (Some call it “bird-doggin'”) and we SCORED! Continue reading “88 King St. | South Beach | $1,400,000”
