… What Clients are Saying about Jonathan!

“Jonathan was an indispensable asset for us to find a dream home. He was very patient with us as we grew accustomed to the market conditions in SF and was able to guide us through the whole process from scoping out the right houses and defining a winning bid up to ensuring a speedy closing of the whole transaction. Jonathan clearly knows the SF market and was always spot on in estimating the selling price for new houses which really helped us in finding our SF home. We highly recommend him!

- Brian K. & John V.

“It's not hard to find a real estate agent who can show you pretty things. If you need help learning about neighborhoods, reading through disclosures... most of them can do that too. It's when things go off-script that you really need confidence, firm advocacy, and advice. These are rarer traits. Jonathan and his team performed admirably in the face of multiple last-minute issues that arose during our closing. Their knowledge of the SF market and their legal experience helped us get into a home we love—no small feat for picky, cautious, first-time home buyers like us.”

- Jeffrey C. & Kai C.

“I have really enjoyed working with Jonathan over the years and he has helped my partner and I with both home purchases and sales. He is a stellar agent who really knows the unwritten real estate rules for the San Francisco market. I couldn’t even think about working with anyone else. Johnathan consistently takes the time to understand the issues and provides great solutions to tough problems.”

- Sebastiaan & Carla V.

“Jonathan went above and beyond for the sale of our home. He understood the market and advised us well on what cosmetic changes to make to the property and how to time the listing of our property. He also helped resolve a decade long HOA dispute in preparation for the sale. He was very professional and fun to work with!”

- Ryan L. & Paul E.

“Jonathan and David recently helped us purchase our home in SF. We had been working together for almost 18 months and were outbid on two other properties. When we finally found the house we had the conviction to buy, Jonathan and David showed creativity and experience to negotiate and close our transaction by avoiding a bidding war. We are confident the creativity in the critical moments helped us negotiate and win the best deal. Jonathan, David and Alan were also critical in the post-signing to the closing process. David referred us to a mortgage broker and insurance broker that we ended up using to close the transaction. We have even relied on Jonathan and his team for design ideas and referrals after closing. They have guided our thinking on how potential changes would impact the value of the home. In short, buying a home is one of the most important life decisions one will make, and we are so glad we trusted Jonathan and his team with that responsibility.”

- Christopher & Kimberley E.
