We were lucky enough to work with Dale while purchasing our first San Francisco home this spring. He and his team made the experience not only painless but pleasant, especially given how daunting the current market is for buyers, both in terms of price and availability. Dale came highly recommended by a colleague of ours at the start of our process, and from our first meeting onward we felt more confident with his assistance. Dale’s depth of knowledge about SF real estate was invaluable in navigating listings; he pointed out subtleties of architecture and construction that would have been invisible to us, and suggested or nixed properties that we otherwise would have overlooked or wasted time on. Dale distilled our (perhaps inelegantly expressed) preferences into a precise filter, and every listing that he suggested that we’d like was appealing.
It’s impossible to overstate the speed & efficiency with which Dale works. After an initial consultation in mid-January, we started viewing open houses in early February. The expected post-Super Bowl bump in inventory didn’t materialize immediately this year, but even so Dale found us a condo that we love and we closed by the middle of March. Dale and his team were constantly available throughout the process, answering all our questions promptly and helping to corral all of the lending, escrow, &c. representatives through what we believe is a record-speed closing.
