polk street: Off Market Opportunity, Nob Hill, San Francisco - 10/09/19 07:50 PM
The owners of this lovely Edwardian condo on Nob Hill have decided that after over 20-plus years here it is time for them to leave their cherished home and move on with the next phase of their lives.
The next couple of months will find them busy packing up their many years of treasures and preparing the home for the market. 
This provides a wonderful opportunity for buyers, since the sellers are willing to allow me to show the home during this period to interested, qualified buyers. The sellers would entertain offers before the property goes on the multiple listing service.
Some details:
