Testimonials

"As a first time home buyer at the age of forty-seven and having lived in a rent controlled apartment for twenty-four years in San Francisco, I was searching for an agent that was knowledgeable about the market, well connected, strong negotiator, respectful of time, thoughtful listener and patient. I interviewed several agents and the one that exceeded my expectations during our first conversation was Jason, who was referred to me by a friend and colleague. Jason thoughtfully listened to me providing an overview of why I was deciding to buy a home and the importance of this decision, and then he asked me “how would I define a successful home buying experience?”. This was just the beginning, but truly reflective of his focus on creating an amazing experience for one of this biggest life decisions of buying a home.

Over a three week period Jason identified over twenty properties across various neighborhoods, both on and off market properties and within my budget that provided me with a good perspective on the opportunities available to me. As we assessed the different properties Jason guided me back to an intuitive and extremely helpful home buying decision making framework: 1.) price 2.) size 3.) location and 4.) amenities. As a first time home buyer this framework helped me weigh the tradeoffs associated with the my decision. Jason was incredibly thoughtful, patient and supportive in navigating through my decision. I could not have asked for a better thought partner on this decision.

Once I made my decision on the property that I wanted to make an offer on, Jason provided exceptional advice on a valuation and negotiating strategy that had my offer accepted as presented. In addition to securing my dream home, Jason also provided introductions to several financial institutions beyond my primary bank that allowed me to secure the lowest rate on a thirty year fixed mortgage. Jason and his team ensured that all the inspections, contingencies and closing conditions were met without any delays or hurdles in the process and we closed on time. Finally, not only did Jason and his team provide an exceptional first time home buying experience, but he made it fun and we built a marvelous friendship. I am extremely grateful for Jason and his team and would highly recommend them to any home buyer or seller!"

“She was diligent in understanding not only our needs but also in working with other agents to find what is available early on”

"Ali is amazing! She helped us buy a property in Pac Heights in San Francisco that we closed in January 2020. We are a family with two little kids and she paid keen attention to what we were looking for. For example that we were looking for at least 3 bed, 2 baths, that we like to cook, and that we wanted a property that has elevators. She understood us and helped us find the perfect place. She was diligent in understanding not only our needs but also in working with other agents to find what is available early on. She was able to find a place for us that got before it hit the market. 🙂 She was also very diligent through the negotiation process, disclosures, etc. making it a smooth buying process for us. We highly recommend Ali!"

"It was a marketing letter we received from Jason and team which prompted us to call. We met and immediately felt comfortable talking to him, telling him what were thinking and he listened intently. Ali, his team mate is a bubbly personality and the two of them impressed us with their years in business and methodical approach to selling a house. However we were selling our home where we raised our children. It was emotional decision and so many teary moments. Both Jason and Ali held our hands every step of the way once we decided it was time to move on to new adventures. We moved out, handed the keys to Jason and team, and they went to work. They were organized, professional and all the time very empathetic with our emotions. They transformed our home into what the current market looks for, we updated as necessary and at times we were difficult because we had so many emotions attached to every doorknob and light fixture and paint color. Jason very delicately walked us through the process and the end result drew multiple offers over asking. The final negotiation to get a higher sale price demonstrates the skills he possesses. The team behind the scenes are responsive and organized. I can’t recommend this team enough as we look back on what they pulled off for us."

"Jason was GREAT! He hung in with me for three years of sadness and ambivalence over selling the home we'd lived in for more than thirty-five years. He was always supportive and sensitive. When I finally decided to go ahead, things moved very quickly. Jason is well-connected and within days gardeners, painters, and floor guys appeared and started to work. Jason's style is collaborative and I went from knowing nothing about selling a house to understanding a lot. He is a knowledgeable and skilled negotiator and we sold our home for well over asking. Jason is a lovely person to work with. He always returns phone calls and gets my HIGHEST recommendation"

"Jason was a pleasure to work with. In a super competitive market, Jason secured us our dream house on the first offer. We had looked at other houses and duplexes as he educated us on the different options. He drove us around and not only did he listen to what we were looking for, he was fun and entertaining to be around. When we found our dream house on Zillow we thought we didn’t have a chance and it would be out of our price range, but Jason went to look at the house for us, spoke to the other agent and suggested we put in a pre-emptive bid after only 4-days on the market. And the next day, we had bought the house! Jason’s strategy and negotiation skills were top notch. We would highly recommend him."

"I can’t say enough good things Jason Hoffman. He went above and beyond for us every step of the way through selling our condo. He weeded through some logistical headaches with our building, was patient with us while we took our time getting ready to list. Handled every single detail so we didn’t have to. He priced our home perfectly and did what we thought was going to be impossible, got us exactly the price we wanted which based on where the market was, felt like a long shot. We ended up with 7 offers, 3 competing in less than 2 weeks on the market. Not only is Jason great at helping sell/buy homes, he’s a great guy who you’ll instantly want to be your friend."

"Jason acted as my buyer broker and did an amazing job. He did a great job listening to my requirements and matching homes accordingly. Within 3 weeks of starting my search he found an off market property and he had a great relationship with the sellers agent so he got me in fast before a bidding war could occur. Somehow in a seller’s market with little inventory he found me a home with everything I wanted and in the neighborhood I wanted. Not only that, he managed to get me a great deal. The bank’s appraisal came in $60k above what I paid, he pulled off a miracle. The whole process was far faster and smoother than I could have hoped. As a first time buyer, Jason was great at talking me throguh the process and also set me up with a great mortgage broke Susan Costello at Everbank. We closed in 16 days with financing. I would hgihy recommend using Jason for the San Francisco market. It’s about the best decision I’ve ever made."

"Jason and his team were terrific from start to end. They openly listened to our needs, provided important insights (pros and cons) of each house and had comprehensive knowledge of comps of sales and competition in each neighborhood. His team supported every aspect of our journey with great flexibility in scheduling times to visit properties, rapidly and efficiently getting approvals to visit each property (given COVID restrictions), directing us and supporting our financing needs and successfully negotiating on a competitive situation. His knowledge and contacts with contractors and specialists to look at the property on a moment’s notice further helped us understand what each property needed. We went from being introduced to Jason to closing on our property in 8 weeks. Thank you!!"
