What Would You Like to Accomplish in San Francisco Real Estate?
Hello. We’re Kevin Ho + Jonathan McNarry and we do real estate in San Francisco; we love what we do and we do what we love
Hello. We’re Kevin Ho + Jonathan McNarry and we do real estate in San Francisco. We love what we do because we’re doing what comes natural to us — figuring out how connect the right buyers and sellers together while also understanding what’s valuable to each and how we can maximize that value. With more than 20 years’ experience, we have the knowhow, peer reputation and demonstrated successes that ranks us amongst the best agents in the City. What’s more, instead of jumping from brokerage to brokerage, we’ve been at the largest, locally owned and operated brokerage in San Francisco with deep ties to the LGBT and development communities (among more) — Vanguard Properties — since the start.
We offer unsurpassed, full-service home purchase and sales services. We know how important information, dedication and perspective can be in making these big life decisions. Getting to know our clients and understanding the stories that bring us together is deeply rewarding. Our love of people, home and design combine so very well with our attention to detail and genuine enthusiasm for real estate. The results — a dedicated, repeat client base all over the Bay Area who have succeeded in this most-demanding and discerning of housing markets both as buyers and sellers. We do everything we possibly can to ensure our clients’ goals are met and surpassed.
As for our own story: we are partners in life and in business. One of us is from Iowa, the other is from the UK. One has been an ICU nurse, respiratory therapist and paramedic among more. The other, an attorney, mediator and reporter who grew up in the family’s Chinese restaurant. (We’ll let you guess who did what). But in addition to being licensed real estate professionals, we’re dog dads to Mr. Raffi, a former Guide Dog for the Blind dog from Marin County, we’ve been renters who are now San Francisco homeowners in who did that massive down-to-the-studs, dream home renovation. We know and live our craft deeply.
We do so much for our clients in many ways that they may never realize, effortlessly ensuring our clients’ position and interests are protected as we handle the many complexities of real estate on their behalf. Our clients will certainly notice our efforts in our results, though; leading up to that, we make a point communicating, responding to (and remembering) client preferences and aim for success in everything.
Our clients come from all walks of life and are as diverse as the City in terms of experience, budgets, circumstances and goals. As varied as our clients are, they do have at least one thing in common — real estate success thanks to hiring Kevin+Jonathan (and Raffi). Take a look around our extensive website where you’ll get to know more about us, hear from our clients and see what full service and in-depth market knowledge really means.

Our Exclusive Newsletter: “In The Know”
This is a real estate newsletter that people actually want to read. Why? Well, we will tell you something useful like how properties actually sold — how many offers, the dynamics involved and sale prices 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.”

What Sets You Apart From All the Other Agents in San Francisco?
When you hire us, you get to work with us — two co-equal, top-producing agents who the ones actually doing the work for you (not some junior ‘team member’).
Our business has grown by leaps and bounds every year we’ve started doing this.
Other agents want to work with us and our clients. Time and time again, we’re told that our clients’ offer may not be the highest, but that our offer package and presentation is the “poster child” of what offers should look like.
When working with Kevin+Jonathan, you may expect clear communication, superior customer service and the very best outcomes possible.
Our favorite part of this experience is seeing the huge smiles on our clients’ faces when we hand keys over to their new homes or when we tell our seller clients that we’ve closed and at (yet another) record sale price.

We get that you may be busy, or that you want to investigate the market and its inventory before really committing to buying something. That or a property’s propaganda video isn’t as illuminating as you would hope. That or you are wondering how we look at houses/properties. All this or that the agent you were working with never bothered to get back to you about X property whereas we already made a video of it.
In any case, we have made hundreds of walk-through videos of properties of all kinds in San Francisco on our channel. Better yet, some of those videos will feature Mr. Raffi.
Our Recent and Active Listings
It has been a busy time in real estate. Here is what we’ve been doing for our seller clients lately.
Our collected wisdom is here so you don’t have to learn the hard way.
We learn something new every day with every client and every property. This continually growing wealth of knowledge is what we offer to our clients and one of the reasons why so many of our clients succeed in this competitive housing market.
AND NOW FOR BUYING
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.
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.”
