"Lowrie MacLean is a quintessential realtor and most trusted partner. She knows San Francisco inside and out, is an expert at capitalizing on what property has to offer, has an outstanding aesthetic and is a fantastic negotiator. She helped sell my mom’s house in Pacific Heights and because of her expertise and commitment we were able to sell it after just a few short weeks on the market with a short 5 day close. Lowrie was an invaluable resource and support throughout the process. She made the entire transaction feel so easy. Her guidance on pricing our home was a significant contributor to its ultimate sale way over asking. She helped make my life so easy because of the resources she was able to help us get for staging, dealing with unexpected old house situations (tank removals) and was always incredibly responsive and resourceful. She is on top of all details to the smallest, handling each with finesse and care. She put everything into the sale of my mom’s home, and while I know she was busy with lots of other transactions at the time, she made me feel like I was her only client. I am still amazed at how easy the process was; Lowrie transformed an experience I had been dreading for years into one that was totally satisfying, gratifying, and rewarding. And on top of all that, Lowrie is really fun to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend Lowrie, I am a HUGE fan!" - Jeannie Fay, Snow

"Lowrie is the pinnacle of experienced and masterful real estate agents. She helped me find the San Francisco condo of my dreams, all within a tight budget. Moreover, she was phenomenal at walking me through each and every step of the buying process, making complicated intricacies digestible. Having a real estate agent do this is essential for any first-time buyer and Lowrie is impeccable at it. I also love that Lowrie encouraged me to take my time, has ineffable patience, and makes sure that all the moving parts associated with a purchase are done right and on-time. I could trust Lowrie to see my purchase through with mastery and care, even during peak real estate season.I truly feel like Lowrie was more of a buying partner than an agent. I sincerely look forward to working with her again in the future. I've already referred her to my father and plan on referring her to all my friends and colleagues looking to buy. Whether you are a first-time buyer or a seasoned homeowner, Lowrie is a phenomenal choice when it comes to realtors. You won't be disappointed." - Dana Thomas, Software Engineer Facebook
"A very late but big thank you for all of your hard work in helping me find my house! It is so hard to believe it has been an entire year since I bought it (and I still need to find some pictures for my walls).
Just a note to let you know how fun it was to work with you, how much patience you had in helping me look and how nice you were to help me through the process. You were so nice to my son and daughter-in-law with all of their comments and suggestions throughout the 8 months of looking – I’m sure they will be calling you when they decide to buy.
So, when I’m looking for my ultimate retirement cottage in a few years, you’ll also be the first person I will call to help me find the perfect place (with a little garden too) once again.
Thanks for all of your help – I love my new home!" - Candance Poolman, IT Consultant UCSF
"Lowrie MacLean was our agent for our San Francisco first time home purchase and we highly recommend her as a knowledgeable agent with a warm and positive personality. Lowrie was also my mother-in-law’s agent, which was how we originally met her. It was an easy decision to ask her to assist us when we were ready to enter the real estate market since my mother-in-law’s experience has been so positive and fruitful. (She now has a great condo in SF.) Our whole experience was equally positive as Lowrie listened to our needs and was always very responsive and professional. From the viewing of properties and writing of offers, to the contract negotiations, she offered guidance without pressure. She continuously followed up with the seller’s agents and kept us informed about all the details. We originally bid on a short sale condo in which she explained risks and benefits of such a purchase. When the bank came back asking for more money, we decided to walk away and then found a TIC that we liked better. She was able to change gears quickly and helped us through the TIC process, including explaining TIC risks/benefits and navigating us through the tricky TIC agreement negotiations. There were also some personal loans to sort through. At the end, she told us that ours was one of the most complicated deals she had dealt with yet this was not apparent to us while we were going through the process as her patience was always abundant. Her strong relationships and good contacts with all the many players (seller’s agents, mortgage brokers, attorneys, contractors, etc.) show that she has the experience needed to purchase real estate successfully. We would definitely use her again." - Devin Poolman, Executive with Fox Sports & Vanessa Poolman, Research Analyst
"I met Lowrie through an open house on Union Street and immediately knew I wanted to partner with her in my search for a second home in San Francisco. Her preparation, hard-work, follow-through, and consistent focus on executing every aspect of the sale was exactly what was needed to secure my new home on Telegraph Hill. She was able to beat three cash offers through her persistence and dedication and should be used as the benchmark in this industry. Lowrie and I still keep in contact today, and am very fortunate that we crossed paths. Without hesitation, I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in San Francisco." - Christine Pucco, Marketing Director Red Hat
"Thanks! It has honestly been a pleasure working with you, Lowrie. Thanks so much for guiding us through our first home buying experience, for pushing us to check out 1406 in the first place, and for generally making the past few months and this entire process pretty darn enjoyable. I know Belinda and I have both learned a ton from you in addition to ending up with a bad ass house!" - Dave Husen, Executive at Stripe and Belinda Bennett, Executive at Airbnb
"Thank you SO much Lowrie!!!!! I am so thrilled…I never thought this would all end as it did – I feel so grateful!!! We love working with you. Thank you for working so carefully and so hard for us. You are an amazing agent and we will recommend you to all we know. " - Chris and Abbi Adams
"Lowrie, you’re our favorite realtor ever! We just want to take a moment to express our appreciation for a job well done. Thanks for all you’re hard work in selling our home. " - Marlena and Hugh Mott,
