Take Our Clients' Word For It.

Kevin and Jonathan's work ethic and dedication is bolstered by their sense of design and style. While skeptical at first we listened to their suggestions as they turned our charming home into a sophisticated and elegant house you'd see in a catalog.

And it worked because the results we got from Kevin and Jonathan's patience, creativity and hard work beat our expectations by a long shot.

The couple purchased their home for $1,260,000 and sold for $200,000 above a strong preemptive offer a neighbor submitted after moving out but before putting our plan into action. Good thing as their final sale price was $1,705,000 — a 35% gain in just 2 years without major remodeling.

Kevin and Jonathan were our listing agents for selling our Sunnyside home. They immediately saw the potential with our property and laid out an ambitious yet affordable plan to best ready the house for sale. I can also say that Kevin has integrity and I knew immediately I could trust him with my most valued asset.

What sets them apart is their attention to detail and responsiveness. They were always available to answer my questions, solve problems, communicate with workers, and quite importantly, Kevin acted as a mediator between my former partner and me. From construction to staging, Kevin's contacts were trustworthy and competent. The house was finished on deadline and never looked better. Kevin and Jonathan sold the property for $100k over our asking price and nearly DOUBLE what we had purchased it for less than three years prior.

There are no brokers who will go to the lengths that Kevin and Jonathan go to and takes care of their clients and their properties.

Our advice is, just trust their judgment and expertise and you will be very, very pleased!

At $245,000 over asking and $441,000 over initial estimated sales price they knocked the sale of my husband's condo out of this world. I wouldn't be surprised if they set a sales price record for the area! Kevin and Jonathan are without a doubt the most amazing real estate duo we have ever met. If we could we would give them more stars!

They took my husband's tired old pink-carpeted condo and transformed it into a beautifully chic contemporary home. Kevin's keen negotiating skills helped us stave off possible issues with neighbors during the renovation project. This renovation was entirely run by Kevin and Jonathan and their team. We live out of state and were very concerned with just being able to remove personal property and clean the place. It was quite a conundrum. Enter Kevin and Jonathan (and of course Raffi, their adorable black lab!). Within a couple of days of explaining to them the situation and some "hiccups" we were having with the condo, the condo was on its way to being transformed.

Kevin worked tirelessly overseeing the renovation project and Jonathan calmed my frazzled nerves more than once. (Basically Jonathan was the calm and Kevin the storm) They kept us informed the entire time by sending photos and video's of the progress and answering endless emails and texts. When my husband and son had make a trip to San Francisco for condo related business, Kevin and Jonathan were there to help them with accommodations and even met with them at night to discuss the progress of the renovation.

Once the property was ready for sale, they quickly placed it on the market and just as quickly sold it! We had a broker's open midweek and then a public open house the following Sunday. Monday we received offers, and Tuesday we were under contract. Then the following Monday we closed. We simply can't say enough about these two wonderful guys!

Our advice is, just trust their judgment and expertise and you will be very, very pleased!

Some Q+As About Our Listing Services

Can't I D.I.Y. everything myself and still get top-dollar for my property?

Probably not. Would you tell your dentist how to do his or her job? How about changing your own brakes? You get what you pay for. Indeed.

When it comes to preparing your property for sale, with the rare exception, we advise that our clients should entrust specialized tasks requiring skill, experience or even licensure to the professionals. And this shouldn’t be surprising either.  Just as we’re not dentists or mechanics, professional and tradespeople are experts in their fields. They are efficient at what they do and these folks (like us) earn their livilhoods doing what they do.

But when it comes to home improvement, however, the D.I.Y.  — do-it-yourself — mentality takes over and many people think they really can do it themselves to their own detriment with results that often produce sub-optimal outcomes that either leads to a reduced sale price or the need to spend more money than they would have otherwise to get someone to come in and fix their mistakes.

What if property preparation suggestions aren't what I'd do for myself?

Remember when it comes to selling your property there’s a point where should stop thinking about your property as your home and more of it as a product.

See this process play out from a client’s point of view:  

“I met Kevin at an open house. I was very impressed by his knowledge and expertise of the SF market.

[We] got to work to get my home ready for the market, which we did in 2 weeks. Kevin made a number of suggestions about the place and it’s staging that seemed a little odd to me but remembering that he knew what I was talking about, I went along with them. Every single one of his suggestions were spot on and made the property shine. Even when he was on vacation, the advice kept on flowing.

The same thing went when discussing the marketing plan, pricing and property description. [His advice] enabled me to achieve an offer that was in excess of what I thought was possible.

Working with Kevin is a joy, I highly recommend him.”

I know the game and I don't want to spend all that money on staging and painting; my property is just that much better and unique.

Okay, so that’s not a question but more of a statement that we hear a lot more often than you think. In essence, yes, your property is truly unique — it must be as no two objects can occupy the same space unless we’re talking about some kind of violation of space-time rules. But while it may be singularly unique in a cosmic sense, preparing a property for sale is different.  You must remember that there is a direct relationship between the amount invested in a property and its resulting sale price  — typically it is an exponential one in San Francisco: the output tends to exceed the input.

Conversely, you must remember that any dollar saved on property preparation in the short term will likely cost far more in a diminished sale price. In other words, $2,000 saved now doesn’t mean your sale price is reduced by $2,000 — it’s likely to be impacted far more detrimentally.

Why? We want to elicit an emotional, visceral response from the right buyers — ones who are vested into a property by loving it and being educated about it. If a property fails to sell initially and a price reduction becomes necessary, any reduction will have to be attention-grabbing and can cost thousands of dollars. To reset our position on the MLS, for example, so our listing would get pushed up to be alongside other “new” listings a reduction has to be 5% or greater, which is more costly in the long run when combined with carrying costs.
