825 La Playa,  #424 Outer Richmond, San Francisco CA 94121: SOLD!


I had a blast working with my lifelong friend and awesome realtor Cari Gennarelli as we listed, staged, marketed and sold this 2 bed 2 bath condo in San Francisco for $79,800 over asking!  Our clients were delightful in every way and made the entire process a breeze. Cari and I got a chuckle the first time we went to the property as there was a poster of Playland in the lobby. Some 40 plus years earlier we'd been to Playland as children together.

590 Eldridge Ave. Novato CA 94947: Just Sold!


I had a blast with my client who just closed on 590 Eldridge Ave. Novato. This 3 bedroom 2 bath single story home sits on a corner lot with a nice sized level back yard.  The area is great for growing fruits and vegetable and has room to expand and create a new vision.

We were lucky to get our offer in and secure the property without too much trouble, which is worth its weight in gold in this market. My client always remained calm and level headed, had the ability to think quickly when making decisions and had patience when needed- a real gem.
