Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $800K in Inner Richmond, San Francisco, CA.
Greg is a very thoughtful real estate agent. He knows the complicated San Francisco market very well and is is able to give direct and realistic advice about buying and selling homes here. With Greg's expert help, I sold my condo at a great price and found the perfect single family home. His attention to detail is top notch, as are his communication skills, which meant that I always knew precisely what was going on with my real estate transactions at all times. I cannot thank him enough for making the experience smooth and efficient.  MoreLess

Sold a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $575K in Mission, San Francisco, CA.
Greg helped me to buy my first home and made what could be an overwhelming experience into a fantastic experience! Greg's knowledge of the city as well as experience helped me find a condo that I'm still living in today.

Greg listened to my goals and preferences for a home, but also weighed in with his experience to help me find a property that really fit my needs and stage in life. While many other agents would have simply put me into the first place that fit my initial criteria and budget, Greg helped me to better understand the market, what was available and identify the right place for me.

My experience with Greg was so positive that when it came time to sell my sister's condo - I didn't hesitate to call Greg and have him help us out. Greg's experience in listing & selling properties helped us to sell the property in a down market (yes SF used to have those).

Not only would I recommended Greg to a friend - I already did and he has already helped them to find a house too.

Bought a home in 2012.
Greg Polchow was our real estate agent when we purchased our home in San Francisco in 2012. Our client/agent relationship lasted from August of 2011 to June of 2012. During that period of time we had a great time working with Greg. Our business relationship has become a friendship.

We were looking for a multi-unit property with a couple who are long time friends. The four of us first met Greg at one of the many open houses we attended. Greg’s friendly disposition created an instant rapport and his knowledge of the San Francisco real estate market impressed us so we decided to work with him. Even though we told him up front we were not ready to buy for another 6-12 months, he provided us with a lot of valuable information especially on the complexity involved with owning a multi-unit dwelling in the city ranging from financing to tenancy rights. This information let us to the decision to buy two separate condo units instead of a multi-unit property.

Greg proved to be an extremely diligent agent, but never pushy. He showed us many houses, sometimes during weekends, sometimes after work but always at our convenience. The search led us through diverse neighborhoods and home styles and types. We looked at lofts in South Beach, flat fronted Victorians in Noe Valley, etc. Greg pointed out the pros and cons of each property. His assessments were on target and honest. He often steered us away from properties that he felt were not good investments.

After 10 months of looking high and low, we decided on the property we wanted to make an offer on, Greg fought hard for us, beating out many other offers. Greg participated in every aspect of the transaction. He arranged and showed up for all the inspections. The network of professionals he used from financing to home inspection was extremely knowledgeable and professional.

We highly recommend Greg Polchow as your real estate agent whether you are selling or buying a property. Greg is a very honest and diligent real estate professional who doesn’t back down and works hard on his client’s behalf. All of these qualities combined with his friendly disposition really made him an outstanding realtor for us.
