Hayes Valley Tech Couple Endorse Realtor

I’m so grateful that my recent sale of 432 Ivy Street, San Francisco, CA, a  single family, 3 Bedroom, 3.5 bath home for $1,380,000. located in Hayes Valley was purchased by  a beautiful, charming and newly married tech couple which resulted  in the following endorsement. 

1st time homebuyer’s, Dan and Kristine said, “Thank you again for being so wonderful during the process!”

“Erika was extremely helpful during the home buying process.  She worked closely with us to understand the type of property we were
interested in and helped us find many places to look at so we could continue to refine what we wanted.  Once we found a place she did an amazing job helping us come up with an aggressive pre-market offer.

She put together and submitted the offer over a few hours on the weekend and was super responsive to all of our questions.   She was always on top of what needed to be done, worked closely with the mortgage officer to make sure everything was moving smoothly for a very fast closing window.  We were very pleased with Erika and highly recommend her to anyone in the real estate market.”

Having strong representation in a competitive market helps.  Give me a ring and let’s match you to your home  or help you to sell and move ahead soon!
