In my area of California (San Francisco, San Mateo County and the Silicon Valley) Broker Tours are scheduled one day a week. This provides a very efficient, streamlined way for Realtors® to preview listings of interest and see which might be good fits for clients.
In San Francisco, Tuesday is tour day. In a city as populated as this one, our Board has come up with a plan - different neighborhoods are assigned a 1-1/2 hour window for broker tour. You can imagine what great networking opportunities this presents as well as previewing a property as you'll likely find many other Realtors® present.
This morning I'm planning to preview these Nob Hill condominiums:
- 1470 Broadway (cross street: Polk) - this is a 2BR/2BA condo listing for $1,100,000 -- I'm expecting to be impressed
- 1810 Polk Street (cross street: Washington) - a newer (built in 2006) 1BR/1BA condo with parking, listed at $649,000
- 1333 Jones Street (cross street: Clay) - This is the Comstock Building near the very peak of Nob Hill, with extraordinary views. The 1BR/2BA plus den condo is listed at $1,750,000. I know I'll be impressed!
- 1201 California Street (cross street: Jones) - another near-the-top-of-the-Nob location. This one is 1BR/1BA listed at $925,000
And that's about all I'll be able to fit it the short time available to me. For me, the best way to tour in the Nob Hill, Russian Hill, North Beach, Pacific Heights area is on foot - my exercise for the day and no parking woes!
I'll give you a run down of these 4 places at a later time, but now it's time to get ready and head out.
