3 Reason Staging Your Home Pays off 

  1. A staged home looks better in pictures
  2. Homes that are staged typically list for a higher price and sell for a higher price
  3. Potential buyers will stay longer during a showing

  1.      A staged home looks better in pictures

The old saying, “One picture is worth a thousand words” might have been coined for a staged home. Multiply that 1,000 words by the number of pictures your agent is going to post online for your listing. That is a powerful pictorial message and a strong story presented online. Literally 1000’s of words conveyed by the pictures attached to your homes listing.

Why are good pictures so important?

Not everyone can fill up a space in their mind or imagine furniture

415 Victoria San Francisco CA 94312 Has a New Owner


415 Victoria is a home that has received love and attention from it's owners for 38 years. They purchased it in 1979 for $63,000 on loans and goodwill. It was a mere one story 900 square foot shack and over their ownership transformed it into a spectacular and spacious view home with a 3rd level master suite and multiple outdoor spaces to enjoy the panoramic views.

I rarely see this level of attention and detail from a seller client. Not only was the hosue in excellent condition when they hired us to help them sell it but they continued to make small repairs and improvements throughout the transaction and right up to the close date.

The house lives in the Merced

825 La Playa #422 San Francisco CA  94121 sold for $815,000. This 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with ocean view sold fast and for $30,000 over list price. Once again proper staging, photography and marking makes a positive difference! Of course being across the street from the Pacific Ocean and next to Golden Gate Park makes for a nice selling feature too!

I shared this listing with my colleague Cari Gennarelli and the two of us thoroughly enjoyed helping our seller client prepare the unit for sale while smoothly navigating through all the paperwork.

If you, or someone you know, are considering selling please have them contact me for a free home valuation. I'd love to show you what I do and how I can help you get the most money in the least time.

San Francisco, CA October 5-7th, 2012 - Event Hightlights


Marin County, and all it has to offer, is one of the most amazing places to live in all of the United States. I believe one of the key reasons is its close proximity to San Francisco. Not only for commute purposes, more for the rich cultural offerings and yearlong events.

No matter what time of year, our mild weather, allows for all types of citywide events from free concerts to National sporting games to Ballet, Opera and outdoor street fairs.

This coming weekend October 5-7th has it all! Possibly too much so choose wisely if you plan on heading into the city and you might want to travel by public transportation.

1. San Francisco Giants have clinched the division title and

725 Pine Street, #201 San Francisco CA 94108 - JUST SOLD!

Just a few short years ago the idea of buying a property in San Francisco in any decent neighborhood for under $500,000 was unthinkable.  What you could afford for under a half of a million dollars was a garage.

Times have changed and while I understand the frustration felt by those who bought during the height of the market or those who experienced a drop in property value - the adjustment in pricing was necessary.

Real Estate values in our unique and desirable corner of the world were out of control and unattainable for most. Personally I like the idea that buyers can find a home in Marin or San Francisco for under .5 million. Granted you are not going to get a 3,000 square

I'm pleased to announce another closed sale - a one bedroom, one bathroom condominium unit at The Bridgeview at 400 Beale St., in the South Beach neighbornood of SF for $450,000! The South Beach area of San Francisco is considered one of the most desirable areas of the City due to its proximity to downtown & the Embarcadero, not to mention the ease of commuting both east & south.

My buyer client got an amazing deal on this high-rise unit on the 15th floor.  Over 800 square feet, with an modern open floor plan & peek-a-boo views of the City & Bay Bridge towers, this unit has a step-out balcony off the master bedroom, in-unit laundry, deeded parking & extra storage. 

Originally listed at $499,000, this property listing had its challenges: it was a

I'm delighted to share a recent experience with you regarding one of my buyer clients and how our real estate brokerage's adoption and use of cutting edge tools and technology facilitated both their Bay Area home search and home purchase.

I had a buyer client (who was referred to me from a previous client) that was actively serving in the Air Force in Abu Dhabi with plans to relocate to the San Francisco Bay Area.    With more than 8,000 miles separating us, there were obvious logistical challenges involved in previewing & inspecting properties, discussing homes, formulating an offer strategy, and ultimately managing the paperwork associated with any home purchase in California.   

Fortunately, we were able to overcome these obstacles by

I'm pleased to announce another "Just Sold" property in San Francisco!  I represented the buyer of 848-848A Potrero Avenue, a beautiful Victorian duplex in the vibrant neighborhood of the Inner Mission.  This property has been amazingly maintained and was in excellent condition for being constructed prior to 1900.  Wonderful period details have been tastefully combined with modern updates. Both units are large one bedrooms, with the upper unit  being especially attractive due to the beautiful remodeled kitchen/family room with views of Twin Peaks. There is a one car garage, a large rear deck and a landscaped backyard complete with a huge mature redwood tree.

This deal was a little challenging due to the "unknown" status that the City had
