About Andrea

Representing Sellers Together, we’ll strategize to attract the right buyers for your property. My comprehensive marketing program is tried and true. It has been tested time and again, and the bottom line is that it works. During negotiations, I’ll protect your interests and yours alone, and as a result you’ll get the highest price and best terms for your home for what the market will bear. Representing Buyers I am tireless in my pursuit to find you what you want. I have the patience to work with you for as long as it takes to find the home that resonates with your taste and lifestyle. I thoroughly understand what it takes to get an offer accepted and escrow closed. Home buyers in the competitive East Bay market need an experienced and reliable advocate to protect their interests. Not only am I conscientious, careful, and mindful of your needs, but I will aggressively negotiate for you during escrow. Through many years of practicing real estate in the Bay Area, My personal relationships are very useful in getting you the property in a multi-bid situation.

Craig Ackerman
Proof Real Estate
About Craig

For nearly 20 years, Craig Ackerman has been adding value to his clients’ home sales. He likes to present options for broadening a property’s appeal through quick, strategic cosmetic resurfacing. Most clients follow his plan, allowing him to deliver the highest possible selling price. He often sets new price records in a neighborhood. “But I don’t specialize in any particular district,” he points out. “My best practices apply everywhere, and I consistently sell homes with more offers and for more money throughout the Bay Area.” A lifetime in home transformation and real estate He started as a kid in the family business, working alongside his brother and father as they painted, replaced faucets, installed countertops and cleaned up landscaping — prepping New Jersey homes to rent or sell. Craig developed a keen sense for where to spend to attract buyers and how to negotiate so everyone wins. Since then, he has earned a contractor’s license; has bought, refurbished and sold his own homes; and has guided the refresh of hundreds of San Francisco and Bay Area client properties. To his great satisfaction, he’s helped homeowners, investment property owners and developers, generating millions in additional profits for them. His accomplishments include: • 500+ Bay Area real estate transactions completed • Top Agent Network, verified member since 2012 • Five Star Agent Award for customer service, last seven years • Former licensed contractor • Author, “Selling Grandma’s House” • Certified New Home Specialist • Residential Construction Certified International sensibility After college and before Craig landed in California, he spent 10 years in Asia, managing sales of commercial flooring to Fortune 500 companies for Milliken. He often grabbed a hard hat and met with the designer and architect in a half-built high rise before the window glass was even installed. Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, China. Craig enjoyed working with people across borders and absorbing cultural nuances. He also acquired sophisticated marketing, team management and interior design skills that have served him and his clients all through his professional life. On the personal side Above all, Craig is a family man and loves spending time with his wife and young son, from hanging out at home to travel and Little League games.

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.

Jennifer Rosdail
Jennifer Rosdail Real Estate Sales, a KWSF Partner
About Jennifer

I am great at my job because I can’t get enough of San Francisco - the people, the neighborhoods and, of course, the intricacies of our housing market. I have made a lifelong study of the trends, neighborhoods, and life of this city and I write about them on my blog at Living415.com. I’ve even named a neighborhood. The results of this enthusiasm are incredible: I have consistently been in the top 1% of San Francisco Realtors, and in 2017 I was in the top 10 agents in the city out of 4700 (for closed transactions; #21 in terms of closed dollar volume). This helps my clients because the more transactions I do, the more data points and relationships I can leverage to get their business done.

About Ron

Customer Service Philosophy I am 100% customer service driven while also providing a keen business sense garnered from my Economics degree from Berkeley and MBA from Stanford. I have been around real estate my whole life with my mother being a real estate developer, my father being a mortgage broker, and my in-laws being Realtors in the East Bay. I am proud to be ranked in the top 5 of all real estate agents in San Francisco (out of over 4,000 agents), having completed over $1 billion in closed transactions. My strong suits: patience; no pressure approach; deep quantitative analysis skills; and always putting my clients first. I stand for integrity and strong business ethics and hope to put my real estate expertise to good use for you in the near future.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in San Francisco?
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.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in San Francisco?
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 Francisco 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 Francisco 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.
