Ratings & Reviews

Greg was super helpful during our home purchase process. The SF market has been crazy and going through the bidding process multiple times can be daunting. But Greg kept us motivated and finally helped us find our dream home. A few times we fell in love with other places that looked good on surface but Greg identified major concerns and clearly explained to us why we should reconsider placing a bid. He is a really honest guy who is always looking out for the best of his clients and knows his city well. He won't have you lose your money on a bad place and is passionate about helping his clients. We are over the moon happy with our purchase and we strongly recommend Greg.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Russian Hill, San Francisco, CA.

Greg Polchow listed and sold our home on Russian Hill in late 2014. He was the consummate professional from beginning (suggesting painting and staging for better $$$ value) to advising our neighbors' agent on holding open house on the same day to double the exposure of both properties. He suggested movers, stagers, etc and left no worries for us. We have moved 7 times, including internationally, but our experience with Greg Polchow and Sotheby's was by far the 5 ??????????move.  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $925K in Central Waterfront - Dogpatch, San Francisco, CA.

I met Greg randomly this past summer. When I enquired about his experience he was more than happy to give me info on his current projects, representing either the buyer or the seller. I liked the fact that he would listen but would also voice his opinion. He didn't care about just finding properties for me, but wanted to find THE one. I also appreciated his immediate responsiveness to my emails and questions not only prior to finding a property or during the negotiation process but even afterwards when I ran into some problems w/ the property. Overall, Greg is very knowledgable of the SF market and market trends, he has impeccable taste and can get a sense of who you are and what you like so he can give you constructive feedback. I wouldn't change anything in my experience with Greg and I recommend him without any reservations!  More Less
