Raffi in the Kitchen

House and Home, Dog and Home, How Mr. Raffi Sells Homes with Kevin+Jonathan in San Francisco

See how our former Guide Dog guides our clients to real estate success in San Francisco. Born in Marin County and attended the prestigious Guide Dogs for the Blind school where he excelled just enough to be cut from the program, Raffi McNarry-Ho transitioned from his original task of being a seeing-eye dog for a blind person when his teachers soon realized that he enjoyed meeting new people and dogs too much. Through the Career Change Adoption Program, Raffi joined Kevin and Jonathan in May 2012 and has been enjoying his work with real estate ever since. Raffi has helped with negotiated tenant-buyouts and loves exploring new properties and accompanying dog parks. Raffi has probably been to more escrow signings and closing that many agents have been (and certainly more than most people will go to during their lifetime).

Mr. Raffi explores many of the homes Kevin and Jonathan’s clients wish to purchase finding areas to plop down so as to confirm floor levelness and when Kevin and Jonathan list properties, Raffi often stars in real estate tour videos featuring many of our property listings for sale. Check out some of his video on his YouTube playlist and you’ll see why so many agents and clients can’t wait to see him both onsite and open houses and online with another property video.
