George was the listing agent for my condo and was a great asset during the entire sale process. Very knowledgable about current market trends, he also had great suggestions to prepare the property for market, encouraged innovative sales strategies and created top-notch marketing materials that ensured I received top dollar for my property. Always responsive and easy to interact with. Couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thanks, George!
After selling our home in San Francisco our intention was to move to the less expensive areas outside of the City, but we weren't sure where. We were referred to
George because of his expertise in the areas of northern San Mateo County, and we immediately took a liking to him. He worked with us for several weeks as we looked at house after house and he was always patient, encouraging and thorough. We relied on him for his informed opinion on the neighborhoods and the house construction, and his estimation of the property values was always spot on.
He wrote several offers for us, and was even able to sell one offer that was less than the competing bids.
George was always timely, followed through on all of his commitments, and he communicates very clearly. He kept us completely informed of every step so we never had to worry if someting was going wrong. He not only listens to his clients, but he remembers great detail of the conversations, helping to zero in on what his client is working for.
He does all of this with calmness, great humor, and professionalism that is comforting during the high stress process of neg.
We have just moved into our new home and are delighted with the house and the deal. We are so grateful that we met George and chose him as our realtor.
George is a seasoned real estate professional with deep subject matter expertise of the property landscape in the San Francisco Bay area. He has an excellent grasp on the methods and processes needed to succeed in purchasing property in this tough market. In addition, his breadth of experiences across multiple areas is impressive.
While I was in the process of finding and purchasing property, George always provided a methodical problem solving approach to getting the best deal and was able to keep those involved on target. He understood the importance of generating comparative pricing to guide decision making, yet was never paralyzed by huge hurdles. Furthermore, he is able to clearly communicate and negotiate in the best interest of his clients through written and oral recommendations.
George was instrumental in helping me purchase my first property in San Francisco. He is always accessible and eager to share his expertise. Without a doubt, George is a high impact real estate professional. I would definitely seek out his expertise if purchasing and/or selling property in the future.
George was so easy to work with and worked hard to find the right home for me. It was my first time buying on my own in San Francisco so naturally I was a bit apprehensive. George knows the city's real estate market very well, and did a great job at guiding me through the buying process in competitive San Francisco, and we had lots of fun along the way too!
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $725K in Foster City, CA.
I would give him 10 stars if it was a option in here. :-)
George is awesome! He is very reliable and he has knowledge and dedication to his job and his clients. He made us feel like we are the ONLY customer but we knew for fact he has other houses on the market. He answered every phone calls or every text right away. He is Not pushy at all like some others out there.. He really made us feel that he has our best interest and he did.
I was very nervous to sell our condo but he made the whole process so much fun.
Thanks to George we sold our Condo with only one open house and $$$$ .
Thank you George
George is really great! He helped me from the start with every part I had to go through; being a foreigner it was not easy for me to always understand the paper and the subtleties of the paperwork, so I had to completely trust my real estate agent, I didn’t have a choice, and George has been reliable 100%. Now I can even appreciate more what he did for me! He made the entire process of buying a home something not too complicated, not scary and his knowledge and humor made him a excellent partner in business. I highly recommend him !
I've worked with George back in June when my husband and I made the big decision of buying a house and everything happened so quickly that by the end of July we were signing the closing documents for our beautiful house located in Oakland. George is an extremely knowledgeable in this industry and very professional. He knows very well the market and knows exactly how the business work .
Thank you George for taken it to the extra mile for me going through some frustrating moments that we came across during this process...your advises work very well!
George is an excellent realtor with a lot of knowledgeable and a delightful personality. I really highly recommended to help you in buy or sale your house and is definitely a guy you want on your team!!!
Bought a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $700K in Noe Valley, San Francisco, CA.
When George helped us purchase our house, we were super impressed with his knowledge of the Bay Area market including the super-elusive TIC (although we ended up going the condo route). He was always available to us, so much so that I wondered if he slept. And I always felt like we were his only client. Never rushed into making a decision. Plus, he actually had a system for doing all signing of disclosures electronically ... I know this isn't rocket science, but you'd be surprised how little it's used. I would definitely use George again.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $775K in Noe Valley, San Francisco, CA.
I am new to San Francisco. I worked with George and Jennifer Kaufman as a team. George and Jennifer helped narrow down what neighborhoods I would like to look in, drove me around the neighborhoods, and went to many open houses with me to get a feel for what I liked. This is was over and above what I would have expected from any agent, especially since my price range was relatively low for the city. It was a very competitive market, but George and Jennifer helped me through the process. I had owned in another part of the country where offers were made differently, George and Jennifer were willing to write offers that were uncommon here and try new ideas to get me into a place for less. I was under a tight timeline and was able to find something quick with there help. They even helped me get repairs done quickly, by finding bids for me while I was out of town.
