Alex helped us sell our home and buy a new home, both in San Francisco in 2017. Alex understands the market very well and brought a skilled team of stagers, painters and handymen to prepare our home for sale and make it look great. They’re a good group to work with, they all know what sells in the current market and got our place ready and looking great in quick time. Alex’s sales and marketing skills are one of his strengths.

The sale price of our home exceeded our expectations and set a new high for the neighborhood. On the buy side, once we found a home we wanted, Alex was a tiger in pushing our bid forward against multiple competitive offers. It helped that Alex had a prior working relationship with the seller’s Realtor. After some negotiation, our bid was accepted and we’re very happy in our new home.

Thanks to Alex. In both buy and sell transactions, Alex stayed closely involved throughout and handled any bumps. You can trust Alex to take care of your buying or selling of your home.

p.s. we’re very happy with our new home, love the views, garden, great location and neighborhood…thank you!
cheers

This is the third time that I’ve availed myself of Alex’s services to purchase a home in San Francisco. Needless to say, I’m a repeat client —— and I will continue to be one so long as Alex continues to plug away in the same tireless and dedicated fashion done for me in the past – especially as I’ve watched him grow and refine his service over the past decade.

The usual banal litany of real estate professional superlatives apply. He’s available day or night to take questions / concerns. He’s got his pulse on homes that are off-market and not listed on the MLS so that you can maximize your search breadth. He’s tireless in his pursuit of seller’s agents to ensure you’re “in the game” (SF being a high demand / low supply market) even if your offer on a piece of property isn’t the highest or have the best terms.

However, the one quality that I really value in Alex is his incredibly calm and laid back manner that is closely coupled with his personal motto – “Always be nice.” This pays off for you and for him in spades when things get contentious. Need someone to schmooze the selling agent to clue you in on what the other offers on a piece of property are coming in at? That’s Alex. Need someone to get you in to a property on one hour’s notice to do an mini-inspection after the property is supposedly no longer open to yet more bids? That’s Alex. Need someone to help you gracefully find a way to charm the seller into signing a legal affidavit about the property — AFTER you’ve already signed the sales contract and AFTER you already were supposed to have read all the disclosures? That’s Alex.

Frankly – buying a home is an emotional affair. As much as one wants to be as logical about it as possible, unless your last name is Spock, there will be some drama involved. Alex knows how to make molehills out of mountains – and he will help you get it done.

Alex exceeded high expectations in selling our home. Excellent factual knowledge of the Outer Richmond submarket, market dynamics, how to set an asking price and guide to a selling price range, etc. But the magic was understanding the nuances of this home, this lot, its setting, its potential, recent work, etc. and then producing a marketing program (a real program, not just an e-blast and pics) which engaged the brokers and potential buyers to focus attention and action on the offering. We are pleased with what the market delivered, and very pleased with how Alex went about getting this offering so well positioned in the market!

Alex is a rare brand of human. Not only did he manage to snag us the deal of the year on our gorgeous Parkside Craftsman dream home…12 hours after it hit the market – in a gnarly red triangle of overbidding and subsequent discouragement, but he advised (and sometimes consoled) us throughout the whole home search process. He paid attention to what we were looking for, and even checked our home out personally, so we could make a quick offer (sight unseen!) while we were out of town. In a competitive market like San Francisco, everyday normal people need an edge to compete, and a knowledgeable and talented Realtor is an absolute necessity. That dude’s name is Alexander Clark. Typically a realtor is in your life for a moment and has an objective, but you’ll want to surf Ocean Beach and hit the mountains long after you close with this awesome and solid human being.

Thank you Alex!!

Alex has represented our family in three deals in purchasing and selling property in San Francisco.
All has gone flawlessly. He is very communicative, timely, thorough and we always felt that he was looking out for our best interests. We would highly recommend him to help you on either end of a real estate transaction.

Alex is great. My wife and I recently sold our SF condo (our first time owning) with Alex and couldn’t be much happier. The whole process was fortunately very smooth. Alex was always responsive, thoughtful, and fun to work with. Highly recommend.

Alex is a first class act all the way. He was able to navigate a very complicated sale and keep the deal alive on my terms even when it looked like the wheels would fall off. He even was able to get funds released inside of escrow enabling me to purchase a new home before my listing closed! I’m a client for life.

Testimonial

Dear Alex,

Thank you so much for all of your help and expertise through this crazy process. You stuck with us through all sorts of weirdness, all the while staying positive, confident, and encouraging, but also realistic. And even though we were probably small potatoes for you in the grand scheme of things, we always felt like a priority. We recommend you to everyone we know. :-)

Thanks again,
Amanda, Mike, & Haven

When my wife and I moved to San Francisco from the East Coast with our newborn, we quickly realized that navigating the beast of a real estate market in SF required a unique kind of agent. Luckily we found Alex.

We spent 5 months looking for a home with Alex. In the process, he guided us thru 12 bids, all the typical multi-offer, SF auction-style, which can be anxiety provoking to say the least. “Are we bidding too much? Are we not bidding enough?!” Alex kept us grounded on this emotional roller coaster! We were able to tap into his unique market knowledge to navigate these conversations about how much to offer. Alex put us in touch with experts to discuss potential renovation projects on unloved properties. We picked his brain about every single micro-neighborhood in the city, talked single family vs condo and which side of the street to buy on in the Richmond if you like a sunny back yard. He is a wealth of knowledge to say the least.

When we found a property that we loved, but were unsure about a few things that came up in the inspection, Alex’s connections came to the rescue. Alex had the personal cell phone number of the inspector who had done the report and was able to put us in touch. This conversation gave my wife and I the reassurance that we needed to bid aggressively and got us our home. Without Alex this would not have happened. We highly recommend working with Alex to find your home in this amazing city!
