Chris Durkin

Max and his team were so professional and outstanding to work with on the sale of my two luxury condos. At a questionable time in the real estate market Max was able to sell both units for record prices! The way the properties were positioned and marketed was top notch and clearly the buyers were impressed as we had multiple offers on both properties. Additionally impressive was the personal time and commitment that Max invested in the success of the project and overall outcome, going the extra mile really made a difference on the sale. My advice is listen to Max! I can't wait for the opportunity to work with Max and his team again!

Juri Ma and Michael Kwon

We couldn't be more thankful for Max's help in finding and closing in our new home in San Francisco. It was very clear from our long process that Max's expertise, market understanding, and diligence helped us to not only find the right house for our family but more importantly avoid the wrong house. During our 6 months looking for a home we felt more and more confident that we were in the right hands with Max and his team. We have been recommending Max to our friends and would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home in San Francisco.

Kim & Rajiv Ghatalia

Max Armour found our family the perfect home prior to our move to San Francisco. It was a pleasure to work with him through every step of the process. From the beginning, Max demonstrated intimate knowledge of the market given his deep network and excellent reputation. With his relationship-based approach, Max took the time to clearly understand our priorities and needs, allowing him to offer us tailored options and straightforward, honest advice, resulting in a very efficient process. We have and continue to highly recommend Max Armour to anyone interested in Bay Area real estate.

Dennis & Janet Cruzan

We have purchased several homes over the years. We bought a home in SF, and subsequently sold if a few years later. Max Armour handled the buy and sell of each of these transactions. I am in a commercial real estate developer and investor, and have worked with many real estate brokers and agents. Max was one of the best I have dealt with. He knows the SF market like the back of his hand (he grew up there), but more importantly, we always felt he had our best interest in mind. Max's advice, suggestions and guidance were always selfless. A rarity for sure. Max also has a great understanding of design and construction, sense of marketing and flare, which is really needed in the SF marketplace. We would not hesitate to recommend Max Armour.

Adam & Jackie Carmel

Max Armour epitomizes professionalism and sets the bar for client service. We recently worked with Max and Zoe on both a sale and purchase of a new home and they expertly helped us navigate the complex San Francisco market. They are attentive, thoughtful, and very hard-working. Their extensive network and years of experience helped us achieve the positive outcomes we were hoping for. We could not recommend Max Armour more highly!

Sean Olson

From start to finish Max, Zoe, and the team were a pleasure to work with on the purchase of our new home in San Francisco. Max took the time to understand our priorities, talked through the strategy and delivered. Throughout the process he advised us and negotiated with our best interests in mind rather than just trying to close a deal. I'm confident his experience and reputation are why our offer was selected. I highly recommend Max Armour for navigating the ever-challenging San Francisco real estate market.

Pacific Heights Contemporary Dream

San Francisco is living art. From the rolling fog to the rolling hills, inspiration and imagination are around every corner. 2427 Green is livable art. Perched atop a quintessential San Francisco hill, this refined, ethereal architectural delight looks out onto the waters of the Bay. Tranquility, elegance, and grace frame the essence of this home.
An exhaustive renovation was completed in 2014 by the venerable and highly talented architect team of Edmonds + Lee Architects (ELA). ELA uses a deeply profound philosophical approach with their clients to create spaces that are thoughtful, intuitive, integrated, and inspiring. 2427 Green is as exciting as it is beautiful. Blending the old with the new, ELA tethered the design with the highest quality construction and finishes to allow the home to have a voice.

Buyer Sale: 2775 Vallejo Street

2775 Vallejo Street is one of my favorite properties I have ever sold. I have had the pleasure of selling it twice. The first time I sold this home it had been in the same family since it was built. The second time the property had been extensively renovated and expanded. The end result showcases the features which are so hard to find in San Francisco. This is one of the few properties which has both a north Golden Gate Bridge view and a south facing walkout garden. Furthermore, the primary bedroom is the best I have ever seen. It has unobstructed, full span Golden Gate Bridge views, a large terrace, floor to ceiling windows, soaring ceiling height, view office annex, display quality walk in closet/dressing room and luxury spa bathroom.

The best qualities of San Francisco real estate is embodied at 2775 Vallejo.
