We first met Oliver four years ago when we were looking for our first place, and we met him at an open house of a condo we were looking at. We hit it off, and we decided to work with him on finding a condo. He was very knowledgeable about the market, was very frank about properties that we saw (and we saw a lot), and always made sure we had all of the information we needed in order to make a decision. We were newbies back then, and he made the process smooth and seamless.
Fast forward four years, and we asked Oliver to help us sell our condo and then also buy our next place, which we determined was going to be a single-family residence. The market is a lot different now than it was 4 years ago, and Oliver was certainly in tune to the changes. He met with us, we made a game plan for handling the buying and selling, and then set out on the process. We did have some disagreements on strategy, but we were able to work them. And, three months later, we were able to find our house (he worked the sale price as well as he could, given the seller's market), and he was able to negotiate a sale of our condo that was more than 23% over our asking price. I think Oliver's coolness under pressure and organization really helped get through this roller coaster ride. He never wavered in his obligations to us (it sometimes seemed we were his only clients), and kept us abreast of every step of the process.
Anyway, we have no plans on moving anytime soon, but we would certainly recommend others to work with him as their agent.
I sold my property in San Francisco with Oliver as my agent. From beginning to the end I always felt that Oliver was more like my partner than my agent. The advice at times was not what I really wanted to hear -- but always in my best interest, and always the scrupulously honest and the right thing to do. When the sale was completed I knew that we had done everything the best way possible and that my best interest was served to It's fullest. In addition, Oliver was truly a pleasure to work with.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Oliver on a fairly complicated recent 3 unit condo conversion. He was a pleasure to work with as the mortgage broker on the deal. He allowed me to do what I do best. He trusted I knew what I was doing. He kept in touch with me every step of the way and had a calm, soothing air throughout the transaction. In this insanely competitive, crazy market he came across as extremely knowledgeable, kind and realistic in his expectations. I hope to get to work with him again soon.
I worked with Oliver for the purchase of our first home in San Francisco. We were considering a few different realtor options and upon a random google search, we found Oliver. Oliver responded within minutes and immediately developed a rapport with him, he was a clear choice to work with. Oliver suggested homes that fit our price point, never once trying to push us toward something that wasn't "us", only to get a higher return.
Oliver’s knowledge and passion for the Bay Area is amazing and quite appreciated!
We enjoyed working with Oliver so much, we named our second child after him!
I recently had Oliver list and sell my condo, and I couldn't be happier. I had met him two years ago through a friend, and instantly knew that if I ever sold my place I was going to use him. Oliver has a calm confidence that lets you know you're in good hands. He explains each step thoroughly and prepares you for any potential bumps in the road so nothing is a surprise. It was a pleasure to work with Oliver, he's a real pro!
