CurbedSF Announces Gregg's New Noe Valley Listing
CurbedSF – March 9th, 2017
Ah Noe Valley, the classic neighborhood for idyllic family living in San Francisco. Provided it’s the sort of family with $3.25 million to drop on a house.

That’s the price for the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath, roughly 4,000 square foot house at 318 27th Street, arguably as iconic a specimen of Noe Valley residence as any. Heck, even the site for the listing simply calls itself “Noe Home.”

What is a Prime or Super-Prime Property
Financial Times – February 27th, 2017
In a world of superlatives, just what is a prime or super-prime property? Ten million dollars will buy you a San Francisco penthouse with spectacular views or a 20,000 sq ft luxury villa in Dubai. Yet prime seems less apt for the 45 sq m apartment that $1m buys you in an unfashionable Hong Kong neighbourhood, or the diminutive two-bedroom terraced house it stretches to in one of London’s better suburbs.

CurbedSF – February 3rd, 2017

Bloomberg Real Estate – February 1st, 2017
Nina Agabian, a retired director of research in global health science at the University of California, bought a 29th-floor apartment in San Francisco’s Millennium Tower in 2010. “It was supposed to be a wonderful building,” she said in January, sitting in a leather chair in the building’s vast, low-lit, owner's-club level. “For many of us, who left our business lives to start our older years, this had become a nice, comfortable place.”

Overbid SF Properties Featured on SFGate
San Francisco Chronicle – December 12th, 2016
Over-bidding: that phenomenon by which buyers, pitted against one another for a limited stock of homes, not only meet but exceed the asking price– sometimes by many millions of dollars. The year of 2016 was no stranger to dramatic over-bidding. Among the top ten over-asking sales for the year, San Francisco placed three times. Eight of the ten closed in California. The list below gives the specifics, and the gallery above shows photos of the top three sales (3rd was in SF) as well as a peek at the SF homes that placed at 5th and 7th on the list.

SFGate – October 7th, 2016

What A Difference A Foot Makes
The Wall Street Journal – August 11th, 2016
In a crowded luxury-condo market, developers are betting there’s at least one way to rise above the competition—add a few extra inches. The end of the standard 8-foot-high ceiling may be near, as builders tout ceiling heights of 11, 12 and even 20 feet. And buyers are paying a premium for the extra head space.

Mansion Across from Alta Plaza Park Lists for $7.9M
San Francisco, California – April 5th, 2016
To take your paltry lifestyle to the next level, we offer this jewel at 2600 Jackson Street, directly across from Alta Plaza Park. It features four floors of jarring opulence in Pacific Heights, one of the city's most lavish (albeit polarizing) neighborhoods.

Constructed in 1895 by Irving Murphy Scott as a wedding gift to his daughter, the brick home has yet to be gutted and rendered antiseptic like many a San Francisco mansion these days.

A Tudor Revival addition was tacked on in 1929 to the north side of the abode; otherwise, its character is still in tact.

In San Francisco’s Bidding Wars, Home Prices Go Ballistic
San Francisco, California – August 27th, 2015
In the San Francisco Bay Area’s hot real-estate market, the question for many sellers isn’t whether they’ll get an offer. It’s how much over the asking price the offer will be.

“It’s easy to sell,” said Ken DeLeon, a real-estate agent based in Palo Alto. “The key is getting the extra $100,000.”

Even in an extreme seller’s market where bidding wars are common, upfront prep work and smart marketing are essential to getting top dollar for a property, homeowners and real-estate agents say. Sellers who invest $15,000 or more when listing their homes can recoup their costs many times over.
These 8 Local Agents Sold $830 Million in Homes Last Year
San Francisco, CALIFORNIA – July 15th, 2015
Throwing shade, stabbing backs, and cutting deals. That's a typical day in the life of a San Francisco real estate agent, according to what you see on "Million Dollar Listing San Francisco," the must-see TV show which premiered on Bravo last week.

But off-screen, the business of real estate is a bit less theatrical and a whole lot of hard work as agents compete in a crowded market for the best listings. Few make it to the top.

We combed through the annual Real Trends ranking of the nation's top real estate agents (not including teams) to determine who made the most sales in San Francisco in the last year. Over $75 million in transactions is required to get on the list.

Here are the top eight residential agents in the City, who together sold over $830 million worth of homes and condos!
Holiday Sales: Real-Estate Deals Often Surge in December
San Francisco, California – December 17th, 2015 – December 28th, 2015
This holiday season, some real-estate agents get the gift of overtime.

In the last weeks of the year, a surge of luxury homeowners make big moves. With fewer listings for sale, some last-minute shoppers go on the hunt for bargains, while others take advantage of tax benefits for year-end planning. For luxury real-estate agents, whose weekend getaways might cost them a six-digit commission, vacation is a relative term.

Why this $38 million Napa Valley spec home is a big deal
San Francisco, CALIFORNIA – July 14th, 2015
A 20-acre wine estate being built on spec in Napa Valley is on the market for $38 million.

The estate is under construction until 2016, but already there are interested buyers, said listing agents Gregg Lynn and Ginger Martin of Sotheby’s International Realty.

The St. Helena single-family residence, called the Whitehall estate, is likely the most expensive listing without a winery in the region, but realtors Lynn and Martin don’t expect it to stay on the market long.
