Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $1.45M in Mission, San Francisco, CA.

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.

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!

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

Greg Polchow recently represented our family in the sale of a condominium in San Francisco. He helped us obtain a great price for this property and we were able to close within several weeks. He provided sound advice during this process and responded quickly to any questions or concerns that we had. Greg's knowledge of the market and his professional attitude were critical to a successful outcome.

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.

Sold a Multi Family 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 in Nob Hill, San Francisco, CA 94133.

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.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $1.425M in Corona Heights, San Francisco, CA.

I have worked with Greg over the past few years, as I searched on and off for the perfect house in San Francisco. As the market has had its ups and downs, it took a while (and 6 offers!) to finally find 'the one', and Greg was incredibly honest, helpful and patient through each offer process. He is not pushy and was willing to work with me until the right house came along. We previewed many houses that were nice, but I could always count on Greg to provide honest feedback about everything from the layout to the neighborhood, and to help me envision what, if any, work would need to be done on the property. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone who is looking for real estate in San Francisco!

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $750K in Telegraph Hill, San Francisco, CA.

Greg Polchow from Southeby's

Greg is a consummate real estate professional. He always puts his clients' first and above everything else. When he helped us find a lovely condo in Telegraph Hill, we hit multiple snags with our nit picking lender. There were times we thought we would lose the deal for sure. But Greg deftly managed the expectations of the Seller and the seller agent, enduring no small amount of pressures in the process, we finally were able to close the deal. It took longer than expected, but at the end everything worked out to our satisfaction.

If it wasn't for Greg's expertise, and his willingness of going above and beyond for us, we wouldn't be able to close this deal. We would highly recommend Greg to assist you in your next house hunting process!
