Jack and Christian were exceptional agentz during a time of major market uncertainty. We needed to sell our small Noe valley condo during a global pandemic when people were looking for more space. From the very beginning they were honest and upfront about what we should expect. They presented us with our options and walked us through the pros and cons of each decision from staging, when to list, what color to paint, and at what price point we should list our condo. Throughout the entire process they took care of everything and ensured that we were doing everything we could to get the best price for our place. They were very responsive and would text us back within minutes any time we had a question. They were also always available for a phone call. Jack and Christian were nothing short of professional. They know the San Francisco real estate market very well and we’d recommend them to anyone. - Alexandra S.
"Strongly recommend agent Jack Murphy. To get us started on our apartment search in San Francisco Jack took us on an incredibly helpful tour of neighborhoods. He grew up in San Francisco and knows it like the back of his hand and had great insights into character if each, transportation options, safety, microclimate, etc....So many agents we talked to first just wanted their money upfront and didn't even want to listen to our preferences until they got their check... Jack does a lot of legwork behind the scenes that you don't even pay . We ended up saving dramatically, compared to what we would have paid with a standard 1 month's . them! Ask Jack. You won't be sorry!" - Stanford F.
“I needed to a duplex after I moved in with my boyfriend. Since I was already renting out the downstairs , I had experience on renting and finding tenants. But I wanted to make sure I get quality tenants. So I have reached out to my realtor and he recommended me Jack Murphy and Christian Elbeck. I have worked with Christian and Jack the last three years and it has been a fantastic experience!" ” - June K.

Jaxk saved me SO much trouble. I had a somewhat unique set of circumstances - needed a place 3 months but had cats to bring, and I kept looking places on my own to find scam after scam. Finally a friend recommended Jack and BAM - they were on it right away! I worked with Jack Murphy there, called him in the AM and by the early afternoon he had already sent me over a list of potential properties to suit my needs. The prices were right on value and high quality. The place I ended up in is amazing, and they were even able to help me negotiate with the ! It was so great to know that I'm dealing with reputable people and not have to worry about being taken advantage of. They were on the ball, always on time, and I was ready to move just a few days later! I cannot recommend them enough. - Sarah D
