We found this great 2,660 sqft 2-unit in this fantastic Cole Valley location. It's definitely a fixer-upper, but see what you can do to remodel it and achieve a potential $1M+ in value.
We started the remodel of our penthouse condo back in June. See how we were able to cost-effectively refresh and refinish the entire 2,200 sqft space of this 3-bedroom, 3 bathroom home in this short video that showcases the before and after results.
We visited over 13 properties just this week and looked for those that had a great location, ample square footage for the price, well thought out layouts and potential for income or remodel.

When we're not hard at work in real estate, we're playing hard at pickleball This time, we entered one of our first DUPR tournaments. Guess what? We won 5 out of the 6 games.
Come join us one day - we'd love to show you the ropes, and play often at Eureka Valley Rec Center and throughout San Francisco.
This is a fine example of how to realize your dream home. We represented our clients in the purchase of their condo. We found one that had a great layout and the right square footage and number of bedrooms/bathrooms that matched our clients needs. However, cosmetically, it was outdated - the kitchen, the bathrooms, floor color, light fixtures were all an 80s decor.
Initially, they didn't consider the property at all because it was outdated and not to their taste. So, we helped them see that what they didn't like could be addressed. We could negotiate a favorable purchase price and use the savings to remodel their home to their own aesthetic.
The Kitchen Remodel
Our clients wanted a sexy looking kitchen that also wouldn't blow out their budget. We made the countertop the focal point, using imported Black Panther Quartzite, and extended the counter with a full waterfall and backsplash. We went from a 26" to a 30" unique black Blanco sink and state-of-the-art Hansgrohe faucet. To be within budget, the cabinet doors were replaced with a cool gray slate color versus completely demo'ing the cabinets entirely. To save space, we built-in the trash/storage and under-the-cabinet LED lighting. The fun part was that the clients got to choose their own hardware for the cabinet doors and appliances.
In addition to the kitchen, we also restained the floors, replaced all of the cabinet doors in the bathrooms to match the kitchen, and replaced lighting throughout.

I'm often asked by buyers: what are the typical closing costs I'll incur? Here's a link to a quicky overview with details on each type of cost.
This is a classic Edwardian condo with many beautiful features. But, in this volatile market, buyers are more demanding than ever. We focused marketing on the top 3 features, and took an aggressive bidding and negotiation strategy to achieve multiple competitive offers and $280K over list.
See how we did it in this video.
Meet Alice & Chris, my in-laws. They had wanted to remodel their home for a long time. In fact, they hadn't done a full remodel in 27 years! They just didn't know where to start.
So, I helped them design, source the right materials and contractors to fully modernize their home with new flooring, kitchen, fireplace and lighting throughout.

While we're still in a seller's market, San Francisco buyers have become savvier.
In order to sell quickly and at the highest price, sellers have to meet 3 key demands that have emerged from the pandemic.
In this video, Juliette discusses these demands and how to meet them no matter what, when or where you're selling.
