Its always exciting seen a project come to completion. This one is especially rewarding as the finishes and craftsmanship are first rate. It was well over a year and a half ago that my friend and client asked me about this property and I sent out a handwritten note to the owners that eventually resulted in a successful closing.
Now 18 months later this property is what I would consider a “Trophy Property “ Views of the Bay, Hardwood Flooring, Modern Finishes, roof Deck with Glass Rail for unobstructed views.
My oldest son happened to be along with me on a trip when the builder was picking the flooring and got him involved with which one of the dozen options to go for. Months later I brought my son along for another look and it was great to see his expression when he walked in the units and saw the flooring he picked.
This property is located on Leavenworth and is walking distance to the water front. This will be a hard project to duplicate as the market has changed dramatically in the past 18 months. My client who has decades of experience taught me a very important lesson. As bad and pessimistic everyone was about Real Estate this was the time for him to go out with me and make things happen. Even though I have been doing this for 20 years most of us including myself have not seen as bad downturn as this past one. It was another Life Lesson.
If you have a property in Russian Hill or any other desirable San Francisco location give me a call and I can put you together with my clients who also do remodel work. Need drywall work? Yes they are active in that business also. Residential and Commercial.
