Four purchase offers over-asking

My client had given up, thinking his Mission Dolores condo had completed the foreclosure process. I contacted his lender to confirm and luckily the process had not gone through. I felt strongly that the property could be sold for more than was owed on it-saving the seller’s credit and giving him a few bucks, which we did with four purchase offers over-asking.

Found a wonderful home in Westwood Park to raise family

I met my clients at an open house. They had been frustrated, working with an agent that was not listening to what they were looking for. In a very short time and educating them to different neighborhoods, my new clients found a wonderful home in Westwood Park to raise their family.

We were successful in the buyers closing on their new home

My clients poking around trying to find homes on their own, were getting beat out time after time. A crazy seller’s market and a very limited budget made it even worse. A property in Moss Beach fit their needs with one problem, it wasn’t finished. With the help of a great mortgage broker, and some flexibility, we were successful in the buyers closing on their new home!

Love at first sight

When my friends wanted to buy their first home together, they had a long list of wants. We found a home in the Lower Haight that might work, but the listing agent was not making showings easy. Driving by the home while on tour, we seized on the opportunity to crash a showing in progress! It was love at first sight and years later, they are still enjoying their home, along with a framed copy of their wish-list.

Can’t imagine being anywhere else

My client and I set out to search for the perfect location for her bookstore. Finding that opportunity on Clement Street, a one story, single unit building fit the bill exactly. Only problem, was I had to drag her kicking and screaming back into the building to visualize the opportunity! Now, remodeled and open, she can’t imagine being anywhere else.

Loved the location and closed eight days later

My client would not leave her rent-controlled apartment unless she could buy in Noe Valley. I happened to know of a place that was on the market and not selling. Challenge was, for tax reasons, it had to close within eight days or it would not be sold. She loved the location, saw the value in two units for retirement planning and eight days later, owned her new home.

Luck and persistence got their first home in Mission Dolores

My clients and their two children had been living in a small rent controlled apartment; it was way past time to move. The challenge was that they loved their neighborhood and wanted to stay. Luck and persistence got them their first home in Mission Dolores, on a limited budget, multiple offers and about a year and half of trying.

We were able to get the blank canvas wanted

My client wanted a property he could remodel to make his own. Even with the market crazily overbidding at the time, we were able to find a home in Bernal Heights that had been overpriced and languishing on the market. We were able to negotiate on the price and get him the blank canvas he wanted.

A fantastic, welcoming home

My client had all but given up buying in his preferred neighborhood of the Castro, given his limited budget. With some persistence and a little luck, a bank owned property came up on a great block. He successfully bought the property and with sweat equity, has made a fantastic, welcoming home.
