“Karen and Chris make dreams come true. Thanks to their guidance and expertise, my husband and I now own a single-family home that we never thought we'd be able to find/afford in San Francisco.
We found this dynamic duo on Yelp, and we could not be more thankful to have met this amazing power couple. From our first meeting, it was clear that Karen and Chris were incredibly knowledgeable about the complex and competitive SF real estate market. But beyond that, we could tell that they were great, honest people who really care about helping their clients find the places that are right for them.
We could just give Karen the address of a property we were considering, and she usually knew it, the neighborhood, and the pros and cons specific to our wants/needs right off the top of her head. And when we found the listing for the house we now own, she and Chris had a solid strategy about when and how to put in the offer to increase our chances of acceptance given the specific situation. They stayed up with us well into the evening going through all the comps and disclosures, were super patient about answering all our questions, and even managed to make a somewhat stressful process fun with their awesome senses of humor. Throughout the escrow process, Chris was fantastic. He clearly laid out all the tasks on a handy calendar so we knew what to expect and the processes for getting everything done smoothly. He kept us abreast of new developments, was super-responsive and available for follow-up questions, and through some stressful and frustrating times, his advice and calming words based on his years of experience were both spot-on and much-appreciated. Even now after we've closed on the house, Karen and Chris continue to go above and beyond by putting us in touch with carefully vetted vendors for the work we want to do to make the place our own.
All in all, homebuying is a whirlwind ride of both extreme excitement and anxiety, and Karen and Chris are definitely the consultants you want to have along with you on this life-changing adventure. Their knowledge, experience and resources are truly invaluable; they are consummate professionals; and you can always trust them to advise/act with your best interests in mind.
Karen and Chris far exceeded my husband's and my expectations -- not only did they help us buy a house, but we also gained some amazing friends in the process. For anyone looking to buy or sell in SF, these two are absolutely the best!”
