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.

Jean Joh
Perisson Real Estate, Inc.
About Jean

I have lived and worked in the San Francisco Bay Area for almost thirty years and know that this is one of the best places in which to live. Yes, the home prices tend to be higher than in other parts of the country, but there's a reason for this - temperate climate, beautiful views, a bustling city with smaller communities nearby...what more could one want? I am committed to listening carefully to your needs and providing the appropriate service and information in order to help you fulfill your real estate goals. I will work diligently to make sure your home finding or home selling experience is a memorable one. I specialize in buying and selling homes in Millbrae, Burlingame, San Bruno, South San Francisco, Daly City and throughout the Peninsula, with specific expertise in Millbrae. A California native, I first came to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1985 to study Biochemistry at U.C. Berkeley. Like many others, I fell in love with the Bay Area and have been here ever since with my husband and two daughters. My passion has always been to help others, especially in the area of education. I served for two years as the Director of Impacting Asian Communities for Tomorrow (ImpACT), where I planned and supervised various academic enrichment programs for under-privileged Asian youth and elementary school students in inner-city Oakland. At Taylor Middle School in Millbrae, I took on a variety of responsibilities as Volunteer Coordinator, Newsletter Editor, Communications Chair, and Executive Vice President. Moving on to Mills High School, I had the privilege to be the Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, and Co-President, as well as being the chair person for the annual Mills Mania Fundraiser event for several years. Every year, I have continued to volunteer as an "alumni parent" and host a Shredding Party to provide free shredding services to the community while raising money for Mills High. I served on the Bayview Homeowner Association Board since 2011, and have been on the Millbrae Planning Commission since 2013. Although challenging, both of these positions have been especially enriching and helped me to develop a more well-rounded perspective on real estate beyond the sale. As a real estate agent, I understand that buying or selling a home is so much more than a business transaction. For many, buying a home is one of the largest investments in one's life, and not a decision to be rushed into or taken lightly. It can symbolize a new phase in life or the realization of a hard-earned dream. Likewise, selling a home also marks a major transition in life, sometimes exciting and sometimes difficult. Whatever the situation, my goal is to help make the transition as smooth as possible for you.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in South 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.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in South 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.

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 South 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.
