Tim speaks fluent Mandarin Chinese and English in addition to conversational Japanese and Cantonese.
Tim earned a Business Degree in Hospitality Management from San Francisco State University and a Master's Degree in Education from the University of San Francisco.
I am very fortunate to call San Francisco home. I moved here 24 years ago to finish my college education. After graduation, I worked in the hospitality and luxury retail industries where I developed my business skills.
I have been living in the South Market, SOMA, and Mission Bay neighborhoods for the past 17 years and have witnessed the striking transformation of these neighborhoods. In 2012, I was able to purchase my first home - the best investment/decision I have ever made.
Not having agent representation as a buyer, my spouse and I were almost overwhelmed: the intricacies of the buying process, the fear of making mistakes, and the need to negotiate a high stakes transaction were all stressful factors. At the time I was still working in luxury retail, but this experience convinced me that I could use my business skill sets to work with buyers and make the process smooth sailing.
Now, as a realtor working in a team of top 1% producers, my commitment is to find you a home that truly reflects your lifestyle and your criteria for your ideal home. I use the resources of my team to take a fact driven approach to provide you with the most comprehensive information - this is a key difference I offer my clients.
I will guide you through the process every step of the way to ensure you are well covered and protected. Not only do you get my full attention, you also receive additional support from other members of my team: over the phone or in-person at a time that works for you. You absolutely have control of the process: I will provide a curated list of properties for you to consider at your leisure. After you have reflected on what is being offered you can provide me with your feedback.
You will be connected to some great properties that are either off- market or coming soon. You will have an opportunity to see them before everyone else. This is another key advantage I am committed to offering you as my client.
If you are considering parting with your home, you will need an experienced realtor/team to take you through this potentially emotional process. I will utilize my established networks to direct the right potential buyers to your property, where I will provide the best representation of its value.
I know time is valuable for you!! Let me provide you with a complimentary consultation about your real estate needs.
From the beginning of your home buying journey to the day you’re handed keys to your new home, there is no real estate agent in San Francisco who will serve you better than Tim An. As soon as Tim became our dedicated real estate agent, our entire home buying experience dramatically improved. What had been a serious of disappointing Redfin open houses and lost bids quickly turned into the purchase of our ideal home at a price we could actually afford.
What separates Tim from other transactional agents who only care about making their next sale is that Tim invested the time to genuinely understand our situation and needs. He was patient, knowledgeable, and creative when it came to finding our home. Tim’s approach is to gain a thorough understanding of your top buying preferences (location, commute, safety, etc) and your financial limitations which he uses to recommend current and off the book listings that match your criteria. In addition to having a constant flow of recommended properties, Tim was always readily available during the week and on the weekends to show us multiple listings at a time and maintained his enthusiasm until the day we closed on our home.
If you’re experiencing the inconsistent treatment and constant shuffling of agents from the Redfins and Zillows of the world, do yourself a huge favor by giving Tim a call. I can promise you and your future home will not regret it!
