Buying

Here’s my top-secret recipe to successfully buy real estate in the City of San Francisco: Mix encyclopedic knowledge and feet on the street with a bona fide passion for the business — then work really hard and smart.

An Eye for
Good Property

Buying real estate intelligently in San Francisco requires an eye for good property and the ability to nail the price. But it all starts with understanding your requirements. I begin by developing a profile of your real estate preferences, and then focus on your lifestyle, wants, and desires. I keep all of this in mind while we’re viewing properties.

With feet on the street and an encyclopedic knowledge of San Francisco neighborhoods, I’ve matched hundreds of buyers with their dream homes. When we find a good match, we move quickly. I guide you through the entire process, navigating tough mortgage markets, and understanding real estate contracts.

What Stephen’s Clients Are Saying

“Stephen helped my husband and I find a home in San Francisco and was absolutely amazing – we would highly recommend him! We met Stephen through another property showing and he helped us navigate the search for a home for ~12 months. He was patient, knowledgeable and detailed – Stephen really treated our home search as if it were his own. In the end, we ended up with a home that we’re thrilled about for a price that Stephen helped expertly negotiate.”

“I usually don’t write reviews, but I absolutely had to for Stephen. My wife and I worked with him to find us a home in San Francisco. Stephen is knowledgeable, experienced and truly professional. The thing I liked the most about him was that he wouldn’t just send us any and all listings that would hit the market like an automated system, as most others would. Rather, he took the effort to better understand our likes and dislikes and would send listings we would truly like and that kept getting better as we got to know each other. He also connected me with a very experienced and senior lender who is helping us with our loan. Small things like this help go a long way and make the whole process seamless.

“We were lucky enough to have Stephen help us through a recent home purchase and couldnt have asked for a better experience. He was friendly, knowledgeable and we always felt like he had our best interests at heart. At closing he also surprised us with several very thoughtful housewarming gifts and followed up to make sure everything was going smoothly with the move. Couldnt recommend Stephen more highly and hope to work with him again!”
