What clients are saying on Zillow, Yelp, and Redfin.

"Alice was amazing!
She was super knowledgeable of the local market and all the processes/regulations.

She helped us navigate buying our first home through every step of the way: from the initial research phases, to helping schedule dozens of showings quickly, to helping make sure we closed as smoothly as possible.

She’s super communicative, helpful, and responsive, and I would recommend her to anyone!"

"Alice was the best agent I could have found!

She set up showings quickly and was extremely skillful at navigating the San Francisco housing market. She helped me avoid several major pitfalls, including connecting me with a great local lender.

The seller picked me even though our offer was below another offer. The selling agent made it clear that that was because of several of Alice's tips (and probably because Alice is just awesome in general). So I can honestly say I got my dream condo because of her. Thank you Alice!"

"...a huge advocate for us once the negotiation process began.
I felt I could ask her any question and get an honest and prompt answer, and that I could do that at any time of the day.
Not only that, she made the process fun for us, because we knew what good hands we were in.

Never pushy, always supportive, upfront and decisive."

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the Bay Area market headed?!

As of writing this, 2021 - Housing prices are, somehow, on the rise. Interest rates are still low, enabling people to buy homes. To wait for another crash/boom to buy or sell has it's risks. You probably already know if you've ever tried stocks, that it's very difficult to "time" the market.

Prices did flatten during the lockdown, but have since been on the rebound. When excitement returned prior to Delta, prices were back on the rise. Of course, every zip code (and even hyper local locations within zip codes) were different. Price was (and is) also very specific to the house.

It isn't too surprising either, with stocks on the rise, and other assets such as cryptocurrency, housing is following similar trends. This is of course a very broad stroke-- For granular help with the market you're interested or if you're a home seller looking to get your home on the market, you can simply drop a line and I'll give you a full analysis of what you can get.

What should I look for in an agent?

You should look for an agent who has done deals, you like (you'll have to deal with this person A LOT), is trustworthy, communicates OFTEN, gives you full attention (I personally don't like being thrown around on a large team, and I assume you don't either), and has knowledge of real estate.

85% of my business these days comes from referrals from employees in tech and homeowners in the Bay Area - To those past and current clients - Thank you!

Do you have any resources for home buyers or sellers?

Yes! You can get my free Bay Area house/condo buyer's guide here. My seller's how-to guide is undergoing editorial review as I'm updating it with the latest Bay Area market trends. It will be ready soon.

For a comparable market analysis, estimates of your property's value or a property you want to make an offer on, you can message me here and I can send you a custom report and person deep dive on how much your home is worth.

Do you have an opening for a new buyer / seller?

Yes! As of now, I am ready to take on new clients and hope it's you.

What is your "Satisfaction Guarantee"?!

If you buy your home with me and within 6 months you are not satisfied with your new home, I will list it for you for FREE* - You pay me nothing! As of posting, no one has ever requested this. That's how confident I am that we will get you a home you want.
*excludes usual seller closing fees, brokerage, MLS fees, which do not go to me, but go directly to the title company, buy-side agent, and the brokerage.

I want to sell my home/condo, do you have any deals for me?!
