Congratulations to our wonderful client on selling his home at One Rincon Hill! On days like today, I like to reflect on what I’ve learned over the past few weeks — each transaction teaches me something new, and there’s always more to learn. The lessons here were many, including the fact that working with contractors will usually not go according to schedule, and will almost always cost more. The KEY is staying on top of vendors, and negotiating skills, which served me well here. Continue reading “JUST SOLD – 425 1st Street #4305, SF”

Congratulations to my clients, K+K, on their new home in the Bay Area! After a few months of searching for the right home, they finally ended up getting the perfect home for their family just last month.

Congratulations to D + N on buying their new home in beautiful San Rafael! We pulled everything together and jumped on this last-minute opportunity just in time to negotiate an agreement that worked for everyone and land them “the one!” You can see my favorite features of this home in the photos below: the reclaimed wood wall made from wood from the previous owner’s family home; the new french doors leading to the backyard; the backyard that wraps around the house for their doggy to play in; the chicken coop that the previous owner built with his own hands; the vegetable and herb garden! Can you tell I especially love outdoor features? And I’ve been dying to have a chicken coop myself — as soon as I can get my fiance on board!
I can’t wait for them to move in! Continue reading “JUST SOLD – 832 Descanso Way, San Rafael”
Congratulations to my newest set of homeowners! Admittedly, this home started out with some flaws that might have scared other homebuyers away. But after reviewing what was truly important to my clients and taking a closer second look, my clients decided this was the home for them, so we convinced the seller to fix those “flaws” with our winning offer and went for it. It took some persistence, but sometimes winning the right home for you means really thinking about what you want, what can be fixed to get you what you want, and what you can’t live without. Then, with the right negotiations, you can reach an agreement that works for everyone. Continue reading “JUST SOLD – 979 36th Street, Richmond”
Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of helping my clients buy their first home nestled in the beautiful redwoods of La Honda, California. After exploring a few different areas, these homebuyers decided La Honda was the next place they wanted to plant some roots. Located just a short drive from Palo Alto and the rest of the peninsula, as well as the Pacific Ocean in the opposite direction, this location was absolutely perfect for them to start their next chapter.
With little inventory available in La Honda, I knew I had to get creative to find this well-deserving couple their dream home, before prices continued to appreciate and with interest rates on the rise. Continue reading “JUST SOLD – Off Market in La Honda”
