“He Pulled off a Miracle”
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 through the process and also set me up with a mortgage broker Susan Costello at Everbank, who also went above and beyond. We closed in 16 days with financing. I would highly recommend using Jason for the San Francisco market. It’s about the best decision I’ve ever made.
“Navigate the Negotiation Process”
After having met Jason through a mutual friend, I kept in touch and peppered him with housing market questions before I was ready to jump in. When I was finally ready to look for my first home, he sat down with me for hours to explain everything I needed to know about the process. He even drove me around San Francisco to get a good idea of the neighborhoods I would consider living in and those I wouldn’t.
Fortunately barley a month passed before we found the house for me -- and so did some 30 others interested in the property. Jason really helped me navigate the negotiation process and tell me all the details about how to make a compelling offer. We ended up making a strong offer that was accepted despite having lots of other competing offers for the same property. After that Jason helped worked with my bank and the title company to make sure everything.
“Expertise in Staging/Marketing... Maximize the Sale Price”
Jason represented me as a buyer and seller. When selling, he provided his expertise in staging/marketing ensuring I only spent money necessary to maximize the sale price. He ran a quick and efcient process resulting in the sale significantly over asking price in just 6 days.
When buying, Jason tirelessly worked to find properties that matched my desires and often found properties in his network that had not yet come to market. I would highly recommend Jason. He is smart, connected, and a pleasure
to work with. Jason went way above and beyond what I ever would have expected from a real estate agent, making him a top performer and great person.
“Fast, Honest Agent that will get you the Best Price for your Home...5 Stars”
We were referred to Jason to sell our 3 bedroom house in SF by a friend that knows him well.
After speaking to multiple agents, we were most impressed w/ Jason’s knowledge of the market and sound advice. We were not disappointed. Jason kicked of the process quickly. He came up w/ a marketing plan and timeline we were happy with. He took his time to explain everything to us but at the same time moved fast. He encouraged us to get our property on the market right after labor day which ended up working out very well for us. He is a straight shooter...giving advice and recommendation but always allowing us to drive the process. He managed the staging process and all disclosures. He also addressed any concerns we had along the way and was able to modify based on our feedback. During the negotiation process, Jason really stood out.
He is a professional and can tell has done this many times. Through multiple rounds Jason way surpassed our expectations, getting us the best.
“5 Stars Does Not Give His Professionalism Justice”
We were referred to Jason by another agent at Pacific Union. We could not have been happier with our experience working with Jason. For those that have dealt with the San Francisco market, it is one of the most frustrating, time- consuming, and competitive markets around.
Jason understands the market conditions very well and makes the process about as comfortable as it could possibly be. He never forced us to make a decision that was not in our best interest and worked closely with is to try and position our offer as best as possible. After losing on those competitive bids Jason was able to find us a great property of market that fir all of our needs. He helped us through the negotiation and escrow process as well as helped us envision the work required to make this house our home. Furthermore, he provided us with great contacts for both inspections and the actual work that we decided to have done. There is no one out there better suited to help anyone find the home of their dreams in this ridiculous marketplace. He is well-versed in both high-end and entry-level condos and homes and showed us potential buys in all corners of San Francisco. 5 stars does not give his professionalism, knowledge of market, and attention to detail justice.
“Attention to Detail”
I was both surprised and impressed at how quickly the house sold, and attribute it both to your accurate pricing of the property and your outstanding marketing eforts. Your attention to detail and follow through was impressive.
Was on track and it closed successfully right on time. I’ve since been at the property for 6 months now and it’s the perfect place for me at price. If you are looking for a fast, honest agent that will get you the best price for your home while not compromising or taking unnecessary this time in my life.
Jason was very professional along the way -- even when I listed out some of my very specific proeprty needs -- and never pushy like some risks, Jason is your man. Rate him 5 stars!
Jason more than delivered! Setting up meetings with contractors, staging companies and even other real estate agents I’ve met. I’ve been recommending Jason to some of my friends thinking about purchasing their first homes too and will be sure to ring him up when it comes time for me to purchase my next home.
Smaller details that had nothing to do with the sale of the home such as relocating services people. He always showed patience and kindness. I highly recommend Jason. His low key manner, never pushy, always listening actively to his clients, and his attention to detailing his plan to sell the clients home at the highest price the market will bare and yet being flexible to his plan and ALWAYS with a positive, upbeat attitude. These traits make him a home sellers dream team! Thank you Jason for all your assistance! You become like a family member to us.
“Off Market Connections”
Jason is a very professional and experienced real estate agent in the San Francisco area. He has helped us purchase 2 condos in the very competitive SF South Beach / Telegraph Hills area. On the South Beach property, he actually made a deal happen by finding the apartment we wanted wanted before it came on the market and then proposed a reasonable price that the owner would not refuse. Jason is very willing to go out of his way to help with items you may not generally expecet of a realtor and this was critical for us given that we are based in Hong Kong.
Jason and the team worked really hard when we moved out of our apartment - and they rallied around to get everything done in one week to open for showing that Saturday and Sunday. We had a great ofer on the table two days later!
Jason is well versed in the San Francisco real estate market with excellent knowledge of neighborhoods, pricing, market climate and always has immediate information on comparable listings as well as sold properties.
“I Never Thought a Realtor Like This Existed”
I never thought a Realtor like this existed.
“Patient and Extremely Hones”
What I appreciated most was that Jason was both patient and extremely honest. I’ve met brokers who are overly aggressive and don’t have the highest integrity. He didn’t rush us through to completion and was there whenever we needed him. He also worked with is closely, and didn’t just send us a recap of random places, but filtered out the spots that didn’t fit our specs. He probably saved use over 100 hours of time, and was able to predict where going to actually sell.
Jason helped us structure the offering so that it would close quickly and so that we could beat other offers. I had thought that an offer was an offer in real estate, but learned that simply isn’t true. It turned out that the Sellers Broker also had very nice things to say about Jason. We feel that he was the reason we were able to close the place we had dreamed of and with a quick closing time. Thanks again!
“Extremely Dependable and Responsive”
As first time home buyers, my fiance and I were very thankful to find such a knowledgable, patient, and fun loving realtor when we met Jason. He is not only hardworking but also extremely dependable and responsive. Jason worked so hard to help us land our first place in the competitive San Francisco market. He exceeded our expectations by guiding us to the perfect flat in our dream neighborhood. I would highly recommend Jason to anyone looking for an experienced realtor they can truly trust.
“Fast Moving Transaction with Professionalism”
“Highest Praise for his Integrity”
I have done several transactions with Jason. He is always professional. The transactions go smoothly and I have the highest praise for his integrity and knowledge. I recommend him to all my friends and they have been please to work with him.
Jason helped us buy our home in Ashbury Heights. He was recommended to us and made a positive impression from the first meeting where we were looking for and educating us on the market, and this generosity with his time and patience with newbies to the US homebuying process would prove to be a theme throughout our journey with him.
He is extremely diligent, joining us in many viewings and reachable and responsive around the clock and over weekends. He managed all the intricacies of the disclosure process, guiding us on implications, leasing directly with previous contractors where permits were not in order and attending their follow-up visits to the property. He introduced us to Susan Costello at WF who was one of the only brokers in the city who could have got our complex and ambitious financing done, and then supported this element of the process all the way through to closing. He also has a tremendous personal brand with agents around the city - every selling agent that asked us who we were working with lit up in recognition when we answered “Jason Hofman”. The end result was we found a perfect home in a far shorter time than we expected and thanks to his guidance in negotiating we beat out a higher all-cash offer despite our financing complexity. We have come to consider him a personal friend and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking strong representation in SF.
Kind, meticulous, honest, and extremely hard working. Jason made the process easier than we could have imagined. You will not find anyone better!
Ours was a chance meeting which resulted in a great outcome. Jason presided over our fast moving transaction with professionalism; communicative, detail driven, knowledgeable, well suited to the fast moving San Francisco Real.
Jason helped me find a great home and was patient throughout my search process and even kept me motivated when it seemed futile. He’s extremely professional and really wants to ensure you find the right home. I would use him again for any property needs.
Estate market. A calm demeanor tinged with good humor and thoughtfulness, makes working with Jason a pleasure. Worthy of a 5 star rating.
“Background in Law, You Knew He Understood All of the Contracts”
When we started looking for a condo in San Francisco Jason was the first broker who took an interest in us, and actually tried to help! Every broker we spoke to only wanted to list a condo, nobody was interested in representing a buyer, since the market was HOT for sellers, and the inventory was low! Jason listened to our wish list, and found us the perfect condo before it even went to market (since there were bidding was occurring) He was very professional, knowledgable, and with his background in law, you knew he understood all of the contracts. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and fair person in their corner!
“Above and Beyond”
“Very Solid Game Plan”
“Perfect Partner to Work With”
Jason Hoffman assisted my uncle and aunt (in their 80’s) with the sale of their Forest Hill home in San Francisco. He was organized and professional, went above and beyond to get their home sold in a short period of time.
His patience and understanding through the process was god send to them as they transitioned to Seattle. Thank you Jason!
I was referred to Jason by my local real estate agent to help me find an investment property in San Francisco. I appreciated that he understood my unique situation and was able to work very well with my approach and pace, which was slow to start and then fast once I found the property that I really liked. Jason handled the negotiation process very smoothly and made sure we closed with minimal effort and stress on my part. As a nice bonus, he got me set up with the great rental team at Pacific Union.
“A Testament to Jason”
I met Jason trying to buy a townhome near where we were renting. He was the seller’s realtor. I was so impressed by his honesty and presence that when it came time to pull the trigger, empty the bank account, and buy a home for our family here in SF, I gave Jason a call. He took me through neighborhoods and realized that getting a safe and happy place for our kids near their current schools was our priority. He found us a great fit in a month!
THEN after over an unbelievably arduous 30+ days of financing and closing issues, we were about to lose our home. The deal would have fallen through to backup ofers, but the seller’s realtor was respected and liked by Jason. She spoke with the seller on our behalf for that extra needed week. This is a testament to Jason’s professionalism in the industry. Also, listen to him when he recommends you use a mortgage broker. Conventional banks these days can cost you your home - unless you’re an all cash ofer, of course.
From the first listing meeting with Jason, he was totally on top of things. He came prepared with a complete market analysis on my property.
Through a very logical process, we came up with a very solid game plan pn how to market and price my place. To make a short story short...he worked hard and got my property sold within a month! And unlike what my first agent had told me, I did NOT have to sell my place for a huge loss
So when you finally decide to fo with a realtor, learn from my mistakes and choose wisely of the bat. Picking the right agent will make a tremendous difference when it comes to the amount of pain & suffering you must endure. Jason will definitely help streamline your real estate experience and make it as painless as possible. From start to finish, he proved to be completely diligent and on top of the situation. He never skimped on showing my property as much as possible both online and in person.
And when it came to the negotiating and contracting part, I truly think his background as a lawyer was a definite asset.
“Extraordinarily Thorough with Paperwork”
When i first started looking for a new home six months ago, I dealt with five or so different realtors from a variety of different companies, all of whom I found pushy (most were super arrogant too). On a number of occasions I was acutely aware that they were more interested in their commission than in what my needs were. So I happily ditched all of them after meeting with Jason Hoffman. He’s personable, trustworthy, ridiculously helpful, extraordinarily thorough with paperwork (he has a legal background so you know he’s not missing any small print), gives consistently solid advice and never once lost his cool in the midst of me freaking out about something (which happened more than once...) He’s polite and professional at all times, but will fight your corner very effectively when action needs taking. I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor.
“Above and Beyond”
Jason Hofman assisted my uncle and aunt (in their 80’s) with the sale of their Forest Hill home in San Francisco. He was organized and professional, went above and beyond to get their home sold in a short period of time.
His patience and understanding through the process was a god send to them as they transitioned to Seattle. Thank you Jason!
Jason recently assisted my 87 year old dad with the sale of his home. He had been in the same place for 50 years and after my mom passed away, he wanted to downsize. Since I live out of state, I was very concerned about how a sale would be handled without my being around to provide feedback and review the process.
A few other realtors approached my dad and we didn’t feel comfortable. Jason came to us via a referral and we knew we had found the perfect partner to work with. Partner is exactly how I would describe Jason as well. Not only did he work well with my dad he also kept me informed so the entire family would feel at ease. We all had conference calls together and knew what was going on at all times. He provided excellent guidance in how to update the house for maximum value and make sure things ran smoothly. I would suggest Jason to anyone looking for a true professional that extends himself to providing the best service available.
“Knowledge, Guidance, and Optimism”
We worked with Jason for over a year and a hald to find our perfect home in San Francisco. Given how challenging (OK...nearly impossible) the market is in the Bay Area and how many all- cash/n0-contingency ofers we were bumping into, we started to become discouraged. But Jason’s market knowledge, guidance, and optimism encouraged us to continue to look in the city, even when we almost decided to give up on SF entirely. Additionally, we felt entirely confident that he wasn’t purely out for a commission check and that he really cared about finding the absolute best home for us. He really listened to our feedback and customized our search so that we weren’t wasting time visiting properties that were out of our price range or, if they were, it was because we wanted to see them and he was patient enough to show us. He really listened to our feedback and customized our search so that we weren’t wasting time visiting properties that were out of our price range or, of they were, it was because we wanted to see them and he was patient enough to show us. Jason is professional, honest, genuine and really wanted to help us find the home we love, not just any old thing. He understands how to build long term relationships and it’s clear that this is how he approaches his business. As a tenured sales professional myself, I know the difference.
