Review from seller of 1715 48th Avenue:
I first reached out to Todd back in 2011 to solicit his opinion of my property’s value and the SF real estate market in general. He gave me his honest assessment and advised me not to sell even though he could benefit from my business.
Fast-forward to late 2015 when I finally made a firm decision to sell because the Bay Area was indisputably in the midst of a hot seller’s market, San Francisco in particular. I interviewed many agents, some referred by close friends of mine, others offering a lower commission, but I ultimately chose Todd because of his diligent attention to detail with regards to marketing strategy and establishing realistic expectations. He didn’t just tell me what I wanted to hear. His experience and knowledge was apparent from our initial email communication through subsequent conversations, in contrast to some other listing agents whose primary appeal was strictly customer-service based. Being nice and cooperative is great, but I wanted someone smart and capable of looking out for my best interests, in addition to providing stellar service. I had numerous scenarios to consider because I was renting out a single-family home to multiple tenants. Todd’s insightful advice helped me navigate delicate landlord-tenant issues to everyone’s satisfaction.
The sale itself was smooth and convenient. Todd’s network of resources (from general contractors for repairs to landscaping and staging) worked to prep my property for sale without delay. Then Todd and Kim packed their schedule with open houses and showings to capitalize on market conditions while speculating potential changes in the near future (which have since come true). I ended up selling my property at the top end of Todd’s estimated projection range, which was more than I was optimistically hoping for. And the best part is, the place was only on the market for 7 days! And I had two other competitive offers I would have gladly accepted. Needless to say, I’m thrilled with the results. But I recommend Todd and Kim not because of the fortunate outcome I benefited from, but because of their professional process. Even if I didn’t get what I wanted, I couldn’t blame the strategy employed or their combined efforts towards implementing said strategy and achieving the goal. And that’s all you can really ask for from anybody you hire or partner with. Check them out.
1715 48th Avenue offered at $898,000, sold for $1,200,000
The top three offers came in at the same price, along with other lower offers. We decided not to counter for more money, so our client was left with the difficult decision of choosing the right buyer. We choose to work with the next door neighbors who wanted another home close by for their large family that was residing under one roof. Now they can spread out among two homes.
Our client is very happy. We were able to get the job done for him with just a one week marketing schedule (we wanted to be in contract before potential buyers went on vacation for Spring Break). Needless to say the buyers are very happy as well!
Unique opportunity to own a home that has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the same floor with 2 car side by side parking. Also featuring a newer built out lower level that boasts a large bedroom, living room and more. The lower space was constructed with permits. The total living square footage is 2225 (per tax records) with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and two living rooms. The lower level has a separate entrance, a wired-in Bose Surround Sounds System, recessed lighting, and an unwarranted kitchen. This home offers an excellent in-law rental opportunity to those who may desire such an arrangement. Or simply enjoy an expansive home, because this house offers more than most in the Outer Sunset – a great layout.
