SOLD! | Haight Ashbury Victorian | $1,500,000

This is one of those properties that took me for a whirl. We spent 5 weeks of marketing and open houses before getting an offer. I had countless calls and showings, but ultimately the property did not sell where we expected ($1,650,000 or more). In the end, sellers are happy and moving on, and buyers are thrilled. Did the market hiccup right around the time we listed, or did the “Summer Doldrums” come early? Time will tell…stay tuned by following theFrontSteps.

This turn of the century Top Floor two plus bedroom, two bathroom, south facing Victorian Condominium checks all the boxes in the most ideal Upper Haight/Ashbury location.

SOLD! | 27 Alta Mar Way | Outer Richmond / Sutro Heights | $1,750,000

Even during a typically quiet Summer market, we got this done, and we got it done right. Congratulations to everyone involved. What a great house, and thank you to my client for this great testimonial.

Situated at the western end of the city, and steps from the wonderful natural environments that only coastal Northern California can provide, 27 Alta Mar is perfect for those of us that want to live in the City, yet be totally connected to nature.


Enter the home and be delighted with a large, open formal living room with high coved ceilings, wood burning fireplace, and wood floors. Entertain guests with a wonderful open kitchen complete with modern appliances, granite countertops and high end glass stovetop. The kitchen is immediately next to a large dining area. This main level also contains two bedrooms (both with ocean views), one large bathroom with shower over tub, as well as a large office area.

Downstairs you will find a delightful garden level bedroom and large great room, full bathroom, extra space, and a delightfully large laundry room. Ample parking for one car as well as additional storage / work area in the garage.

This home has been well maintained and shows true pride of ownership. It has been recently painted inside and out, and is available for immediate occupancy and enjoyment.

Enjoy all of the best parks, running trails, surfing, cycling, kiting, beach walks, dog runs, golf courses, and outdoor activities this part of town affords. In addition to ease of your escape to nature, you can easily commute North, South, and East.

I’ll get back to blogging about our exciting, confusing, astounding, basically mind-boggling real estate market soon enough, but for now I’m pleased to have represented the buyers of this really incredible Outer Parkside home (not like any you’ve seen out that way) at 2695 43rd Ave.

The Pacific Ocean greets you every day: smell the salt air and soak in the sun! Open, updated and filled with natural light!


Approaching this 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom corner-lot in the Outer Parkside, you will take in the simple, clean, and streamlined Art Deco lines. On the main level the ultimate chef’s kitchen is fully equipped with Thermador and Bosch appliances; a U-Line wine cooler; a counter-depth built-in refrigerator; and a pot filler wall faucet. Intelligently selected tech systems give you the custom home edge with Nest 3 thermostats; a Ring Pro video doorbell; Schlage keyless entry; solar panel system and more! Exceptionally efficient floor plan, 6 skylights, hardwood flooring and very high ceilings, deck, firepit and garden.

We closed a couple weeks ago now, and my clients couldn’t be happier.

Still Available! Top Floor 2+ Bedroom Victorian In A+++ Location

It’s not often I have to post things twice, but to my amazement this wonderful property is still available….

This turn of the century Top Floor two plus bedroom, two bathroom, south facing Victorian Condominium checks all the boxes in the most ideal Upper Haight/Ashbury location.


Entering from street level, you’ll be drawn in by large, period stained glass windows above the front door flooding the entry with natural light which radiates throughout the entire home. Victorian details abound including a picturesque stained glass skylight, soaring ceilings, original dark wood floors, crown moldings, wainscoting, two working fireplaces, and large functioning pocket doors. The front windows provide a great view of Sutro Tower. This unit has been continually updated since the early 1900s with 2 substantial skylights in the eat-in kitchen, office/bonus room in the back, modern bathrooms, updated appliances, brand new in-unit Washer & Dryer, Monkeybrains & cable ready Internet, beautiful shared courtyard, parking for one car, substantial garage storage including a storage room w/lock.

This central location is across the street from The Park Branch Public Library, 1 block from shops on Haight Street and the Panhandle, 2 blocks from Whole Foods & the entrance to Golden Gate Park. Easy commute anywhere in SF: North, West, East, and South, walk to Cole Valley, tech shuttle stops, St. Mary’s / Dignity Medical Center, UCSF Parnassus and a multitude of dining and shopping options. While the official “Walk Score” is 97 it feels more like 99! As Page Street is one of SF’s official bike routes, 1826 Page street has a “Bike Score” of 98.

When you own a Victorian like this you’ll enjoy the benefits of a modern space while appreciating the quality workmanship, design, charm, and engineering of an historic San Francisco Victorian. Come visit us at one of the open houses, peruse the high resolution photos, or better yet, schedule a private tour and come fall in love with your future home.

Tight Inventory, Top 10 Overbids, and 7 Off Market Listings

Currently, there are exactly 167 Single Family Homes for sale in the entire city of San Francisco…from the Marina District down to Visitacion Valley. Of those, only 42 hit the market in the last week, and some have actually been on the market more than 30 days (I call them Stalefish, and that’s where you might – just might – find a “deal”). But mostly, we’re a city still starving for single family homes, and they are literally flying off the shelf. Condos in desirable areas are about the same, but I’m not going there right now.

What does this mean? It means competition is fierce, multiple offers are commonplace, and Overbidding is still not anywhere near done. Have a look at this week’s top 10 Overbids. Keep in mind, this is only the top 10, if you want to see more, follow this link to more recent sales.

Address BR/BA/Units DOM List Price Sold Price Overbid
2662 40th Avenue 4/2.00/N/A 9 $995,000 $1,550,000 55.78%

1933 Ulloa Street 3/1.00/N/A 13 $949,000 $1,335,000 40.67%

945 Corbett Avenue 1/1.00/107 7 $699,000 $975,000 39.48%

All of this said, if you’re losing out, I have several listings coming to market, and a couple we’ll sell off market:
Single Family home on Cabrillo at 36th
Single Family home on 46th at Balboa with Ocean Views
Single Family home near Alta Mar in Sutro Heights with Ocean Views
Condo near the Great Highway with Ocean Views
Condo on Frederick in Cole Valley with Valley views
Condo on Page near Upper Haight
Empty lot in Russian Hill ready to build

So…I’ll do my part to get some inventory for you, but in the meantime marvel at those Overbids, have a good weekend, and enjoy this Summer weather!

Happy Aloha Friday
