Anthony Navarro
Harper Real Estate
About Anthony

Anthony Navarro’s intuitive yet data-driven approach has earned him many accolades, such as the Best of HomeLight Award 2018, which placed him in the top 5% of agents nationwide. In 2020, he was named a HomeLight Elite Agent, which is only awarded to the top 1% of agents in the nation. This designation allows his sellers to trade in their houses when moving up or downsizing and gives his buyers more negotiating power with the ability to make all-cash-offers. Always an early adopter who stays on the leading edge, Anthony has also partnered with Harcourt’s Auctions, an elite auction house for non-distressed homes that boasts a 31% higher success rate and 6-8% higher prices than the MLS. Anthony’s broad range of experience, vast professional network, and in-depth knowledge of the economic principles that drive real estate sales have placed him in the top 1% of San Francisco agents since 2005. Not surprising, as the San Francisco native has been honing his seemingly innate talent since he was a child. Anthony first learned about real estate from his parents, who were successful investors, and has long maintained a thriving national personal real estate portfolio. Though he specializes in luxury properties and investments, Anthony has guided hundreds of Bay Area buyers, sellers, and investors to success in all markets. Outside of real estate, Anthony devotes time to his two daughters. He named Harper after his eldest because of her exuberance and passion for life — two qualities they share. When not with his family or clients, Anthony volunteers with San Francisco Seals Soccer, an organization that provides opportunities to young players from all economic backgrounds. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from UC Berkeley.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in San Bruno?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in San Bruno?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in San Bruno to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in San Bruno is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
