Art helped us in our search for real estate last year on the SF Peninsula, and we continue to refer friends buying or selling on the peninsula to Art. We were referred to Art by our friend and real estate agent @ Sotheby's in San Francisco. We weren't sure where we wanted to live, and our budget was relatively small in comparison to rapidly rising market rates. Our time spent with Art was thoroughly memorable, enjoyable, and we both learned a lot. Art actually listened to our list of requirements (number of bedrooms, architectural features, yard, preference for our own style of remodeling, etc.), and paid strict attention to our budget. He did not waste our time taking us to see places we couldn't afford - amazingly, every home he showed us met both our taste and guidelines. Private appointments were set up in advance and we never waited on a listing realtor to show up. When we made an offer on a property in San Mateo, Art took the time to write up a bio for both my husband and I to help us clear the group bidding process. Art has a far reaching network, and his knowledge of the peninsula is deep. We have HIGHLY recommended him to friends, and everyone we've sent Art's way has thanked me.
