Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 in Lower Pacific Heights, San Francisco, CA.
Erin was involved in this property for approximately two years. She added tremendous value throughout the entire process (e.g. construction, design, selling). Erin referred me to numerous professionals (e.g. painter, tiler, tile, kitchen cabinets, lighting). That was a huge time saver. She even went with me to pick out lights for the entire unit. Once in contract, she is a phenomenal negotiator. Her suggestions are on point. Erin is highly qualified to navigate the complex San Francisco housing market. I would highly recommend Erin and have utilized her expertise on three transactions in San Francisco.
Erin is an extraordinary realtor. She is very knowledgeable regarding the market; regarding both current inventory and past sales. She was very knowledgeable about all the details. She made our purchase very smooth. She is an easy person to get along with and communicate with. I highly recommend Erin!
Erin was great navigating the selling conditions in the Marina and providing sound guidance to market/sell our condo. She also has the right personality to provide encouragement and confidence that everything will work out in the end. And it did!
Erin is incredible. Some deals are straightforward. Ours was not. We had a TIC (Tenancy-In-Common) where we were selling only one of the units. So Erin had to essentially represent us as the seller but also work with our co-owner to secure her fractional financing. It was a lot of work, essentially two transactions.
Add to that, we have strained relations within our TIC, so Erin had to do a lot of legwork to get things done since we aren't very good at working things out ourselves.
I knew it could be difficult and spent some time talking to multiple agents to find the realtor best for our situation. I was confident when I first talked to Erin that she'd be perfect for the job and she was.
I would recommend her to others very easily. She's great at pushing forward to move the deal through close, for staying neutral amongst difficult relationships, and for instilling confidence that it'll all work out. We feel very lucky that she represented us in this sale.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Mission, San Francisco, CA.
Erin is awesome and I will highly recommend her.
As a first time home buyer, I was overwhelmed with the whole process. I spent an hour each talking to 3 different agents before deciding to go ahead with Erin. The 2 other agents were from big and reputed firms. They gave me the information, but there was no personal touch. Erin asked me a ton of questions on what I wanted and then told me what she can do for me and how we can work together. She has her own firm which is smaller in size, but she is part of the top agents network. So you get best of both the worlds. You get a personal touch and at the same time you get access to the best listings (even before they hit the market).
On one occasion I was in 2 minds about a condo. Instead of pushing me towards it and making a quick deal, Erin suggested that if I am not sure, we should continue with our search. For a 2nd condo I made an offer, but the seller came back and asked for more. She told me that in her honest opinion the condo wasn’t worth it. This shows her integrity.
Ultimately I liked a condo that fit my budget and my offer was accepted. It was a TIC situation and so the deal was a bit complicated. She was very knowledgeable about the process and guided me through it. It took me 4 months to close, but she was very patient through the process.
She has good connections with other real estate agents, lawyers, loan agents, home inspectors etc. She was able to fast track some of the work thanks to these contacts. I want to get some work done on the condo and she knows a bunch of contractors as well.
Erin and her team are very responsive. I got immediate responses to all my emails / phone calls.
If you want an agent who is friendly and warm, who understands your needs and your budget concerns, who can guide you through the home buying process then look no further than Erin!
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $875K in Pacific Heights, San Francisco, CA.
Erin is the best resource to finding beautiful homes throughout San Francisco’s diverse neighborhoods. With a keen focus on understanding her clients’ needs, Erin dedicates her efforts to finding exactly what her clients want. Erin is a just fantastic and extremely had working agent! She made the entire buying process so easy for first timer (like us) in the city. We went through several rounds of offers/negotiations to get the best deal. I will recommend Erin to all my friends and family.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $1.8M in Pacific Heights, San Francisco, CA.
As I began the overwhelming process of buying my first home, a friend recommended Erin Thompson to me. And, SHE IS AMAZING!!! All of a sudden, I was honing in on the best houses, in the right neighborhoods, that fit my style--for the right price! Not only does she have great taste, excellent communication skills, and a killer work ethic--but she knows the SF real estate market and the art of the deal inside & out. The due diligence and closing processes were a breeze. She even stayed with me well beyond her call of duty to ensure that I was properly moved in, had all of the numbers for services, architects, etc.
I could not recommend Erin more wholeheartedly--in fact--she has helped 2 of my other friends find awesome homes as well. I am very happy in my decision to have hired her!
Bought a Multiple Occupancy home in 2012 for approximately $700K in North Panhandle, San Francisco, CA.
Erin Thompson represented my wife and me on the purchase of our first home this past month. We bought a 3br TIC and without her the deal would not have gotten done. In today's competitive environment, having someone with her expertise, network, and passion for real estate made a huge difference in our ability to secure the right property for us. It took some digging in a supply-limited market for us to find the home we wanted, but Erin's access to on and off market properties was unparalleled to experiences we had with other brokers and is a big reason we found the property we fell in love with. Once we had offered, she was able to secure the deal after several rounds of gifted negotiation. We went under contract over numerous other parties because she leveraged her relationship with the listing broker and our qualifications to get the deal. In retrospect and in comparison to other properties on the market in our neighborhood, she secured for us a very favorable deal. And once in escrow, her and her team were detail oriented and quick to answer any questions or concerns we had. With experience in development, design, and sales, her attentiveness during our inspections made the process easy and comfortable. Her relationship with the lender also assisted us because we were able to fund the loan so quickly. Within 30 days, we were moving into our new home; a place where my wife and I will start a family and live for many years to come. I have already recommended Erin to other friends and colleagues and if I were to ever do any work at our place, she'd be the first person I'd call.
