4367 21st Street, San Francisco, CA, A wonderful, corner-lot home with a white picket fence, jasmine-scented private front yard that’s fully detached and one where the garage is on the side of the home, which allows copious amounts of natural light to pour into a newly updated kitchen with tile, quartz, walnut and stainless steel appliances including a new gas cooktop, electric oven and warming drawer. The are other features throughout the just-updated home such as new millwork in the formal dining room that offer a subtle countertpoint to the dramatic polished nickel chandelier or the backlit colorful stained-glass window. The pair of upstairs bedrooms each have vaulted ceilings, dramatic designer light fixtures and outdoor space including a 200+ sqft south-facing patio. The ground floor of this concrete-foundation home has an en suite bedroom and internal access garage where you can plug-in your electric car into the home’s 240-V outlet. Set above the Castro and Noe Valley in a quiet and warm pocket of this part of town, 4367’s proximity to some of the city’s best public schools may come in handy in 2024, which is when proximity will play a role in determining where kids can go to school.

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.
