Beth, a well established San Francisco broker with more than twenty-five years in the business, had certainly been successful on her own.

It can be emotionally and even physically challenging. Don and Beth understand this, and they do everything they can to assure a clean and smooth transaction.  Price is crucial whether you are buying or selling a home. In either case, you can count on Don and Beth for exceptional pricing and valuation expertise, and tremendous negotiating skills.
