Initial consultation

Having realistic expectations about the current real estate market, what you can afford, and your timeline to close are critical to your success. We’ll start with an initial consultation, where we will learn all about you and what you are looking for. We’ll review the entire home buying process and what we will do for you every step along the way. We’ll look at your timeframe and anything that may alter your ability to move on a property, such as whether you have another property to sell. We’ll also talk about our communication styles and preferences, key to ensuring a smooth and mutually satisfying outcome. At the end of our initial consultation, we’ll have a realistic plan for moving forward.


determining your wants and needs

We’ll discuss and get clear about your needs and wants. Your needs are the things you absolutely cannot live without – you won’t even look at a property unless it has every single one of them. Your wants are the things you’d really like, but can live without. Once we fully understand what you are looking for, we’ll talk about the right San Francisco neighborhoods for you to consider and the average home prices. We are San Francisco residents and understand the city’s micro-lifestyles.
