LEARN HOW NOW → Put Expertise at work for you. Kevin+Jonathan Top 1% San Francisco Real Estate Agents We had a wonderful experience working with Kevin, Jonathan, and Raffi. We have and will continue to recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the Bay area. They are clearly experts in their industry.

One of their many strengths is breaking down the many steps of purchasing a home into simple easy to understand terms. Their advice was always considerate, honest and supportive.

Start Right Here → It’s Time to Change Your Life Kevin+Jonathan Kevin K. Ho, Esq. + Jonathan B. McNarry Kevin and Jonathan helped us find (and close!) on our dream house!

We talked to a number of buyers’ agents, however Kevin and Jonathan really stood out. Not only did they answer all our questions with their wealth of online information, but also taught us what to look for (and what to watch out for) in person as we toured homes with them.

Once we found *the home* they helped us craft an amazing pre-emptive offer that landed us the house. After we were under contract, Kevin and Jonathan handled all the little details, allowing us to close in under 2 weeks!

With all the people we interacted with in the home-buying process, Kevin and Jonathan are our top recommendation.

San Francisco is beautiful START WITH KEVIN+JONATHAN NOW → Make the right move. Kevin +Jonathan On Top of San Francisco Real Estate When I had my first phone conversation with Kevin and Jonathan, my gut told me that THIS is the team I want to work with when the time came for me to sell. I didn’t even bother interviewing other agents. They worked with me on both selling and buying transactions and the results speak for themselves.

If there was one word to describe my experience with Kevin and Jonathan, it’s ”smart.” They know the current market environment and also helped educate and guide me to getting both buying and selling done.

— Clodel, Seller and Buyer, Retail Apps.,SoMa + Excelsior
TIME TO GET STARTED → Always Be Supported Kevin+Jonathan Top 1% San Francisco Real Estate Agents Kevin and Jonathan are a fantastic team. I found them via Yelp and, for once, the superlative reviews were accurate. They helped me sell my place in less than a month for a great price. They answered all my questions, gave me proactive suggestions, and never once left me hanging.

— Mary W., Seller, Government, the Richmond District, whose property sold in a week, over asking after she followed our prep plan.
Raffi in Glen Canyon GET GOING WITH KEVIN+JONATHAN NOW → Understanding the emotional. Kevin +Jonathan San Francisco Real Estate Can Be Amazing We had such an amazing experience with Kevin purchasing our first home in a crazy competitive market like SF. We visited together some homes we liked and we were really impressed by his knowledge and as well helping us guiding through the process. Kevin did a fantastic job being there for us almost 24/7 with all our questions. He made the process so easy for us and beyond just getting the place — provided us with very thoughtful curated information what we need to know as homeowners.

We trusted Kevin right from the beginning and his combination of being very professional, knowledgeable but at the same time understanding the emotional side that we went through purchasing the home. This was truly an amazing experience

— Oliver + Janette, Buyers, Tech/Industrial Design, The Richmond, a pre-emptive offer that saved time and money

Our Newsletter: “In The Know”

This is a real estate newsletter that people want to read. Why? Well, we will tell you something useful like how properties actually sold — how many offers, the dynamics involved and sale proices before they’re made official among more. 

“I love the style of your newsletter! It is so informative and fun! I love to see what is happening in my neighborhood too.”

MARKET INTELLIGENCE

Can live sales data tell us what’s happening in San Francisco housing right now? 

Kind of. Even live home sales data has its limits. Escrows usually take anywhere from 21 to 44 days from getting into contract to closing in SF, which means that sales data feeds are lagging indicators at best. This is all the more reason for you to talk to us about specific properties, neighborhoods and trends.

Is it still $1,000/sqft in San Francisco? 

Yes — on average. Demand continues to outpace demand, even with COVID-19. Demand for single-family houses with yards is especially strong as people move away from high-rise condominiums unless those condos are close to outdoor spaces.

Time for Better Buying

And exhale. We know that buying a home is something that’s life-changing for sure. That’s why we’re here to help you get to there from here, where it’s into or from a condominium, single-family home, TIC, mansion, mini-mansion, starter home or pied-à-terre. Our buyer clients know they’re working with approachable, continually engaged and authoritative top-producing professionals who are accompanied by a happy, mellow and friendly big black dog, Raffi, who likes to wag his tail too.

Our track record is evidence that we know how to win and deliver the outcomes that impact our clients’ lives in the most positive ways possible.  We use a smarter, more-detailed approach to help our clients win — even if they’re not the highest offer, they’re many times the best one. 

Off-Market Find + Win In Noe Valley

As first time buyers unsure of exactly what we wanted, not to mention where in the city we wanted to be, Kevin was very patient and generous with his time in order to help us figure out what would best fit our desires and budget. With the training and attention-to-detail of a lawyer and the eye of a designer, Kevin has all the right skills. He is personable, professional, hard-working and well-connected amongst agents in the city.

Kevin ultimately found an off-market property in Noe Valley, at the right price, that is perfect for us. He knew it, we knew it, and within 24 hours of seeing the property we had a signed contract. We were able to move with speed and confidence because of our trust in Kevin, the time he took to educate us in advance throughout our search, and his outstanding market knowledge.

We are nothing but happy with our new home and with the outstanding service Kevin provided. Even now, Kevin and Jonathan are only a text or email away with recommendations or answers to our questions. We highly recommend working with K&J!

For the Sellers

Our clients’ listings are prepared better, shown better and sell better

We take what we learn from our buyer clients and help our seller clients succeed in San Francisco real estate. We work to ensure our reputation and brand are rooted in quality, hard work and thoughtfulness. We focus on the details — the little touches — as well as the big picture.

Our seller services includes a bit of humor, candor and perspective thrown in for good measure. And, unlike many agents out there, our success is rooted in the fact that we genuinely care about our clients as your story and goals are at the root of our joint success.

We regularly set, break or exceed local sales records with our listings.  While spending and investing in your property is essential, we strive to prepare (and adhere to) preparation budgets, and individual constraints to create a bespoke product that connects with the best buyers on an emotional level to get the best outcome possible. While every property might not need to be bespoke, our results will be.   

“You guys always prepare and present your listings so well it’s not fair to other agents. Your clients are so lucky to have you because you so do so much for them.”

Terms & Conditions

Real estate is always changing and evolving. It's complex and can be as fickle as it is surprising. And while the information and knowledge on this site is considered to be accurate and correct, it cannot be warranted. Market conditions in San Francisco, California, and the world can change with a tweet or a sneeze and is beyond anyone's control.

In San Francisco, things like local, state and federal tax regulations can change with big implications. Other things like rent control rules, eviction control, lending practices and standards, building and zoning regulations are just a few of the other things that can change with little or no notice. All of these things and other intangible factors can and will impact market values and performance. 

Kevin is a licensed California attorney but focuses on real estate about 99.9 percent of the time. It's important to note that while you can’t take the attorney out of him he will not be acting as your attorney here. This speaks to the larger point that you should also seek out qualified folks who work in their respective sectors if you have further questions.
