When it came time to sell our house in Bernal Heights, we didn’t think twice about whom to enlist, Bernal Hill Realty. Kristin and Mary Ann’s experience in the neighborhood is the draw:  ”Bernal sells Bernal”.

We followed all their recommendations and everything turned out perfect.

In an incredibly booming time for our little hilltop neighborhood, our house was in contract in 7 days.  The traffic from the weekend open houses, twilight showings and broker’s tour was incredible thanks to their marketing and ability to keep it all together under pressure.

Highly recommended.

Kristin Hofso is the best real estate agent we could ask for!!  In this highly competitive SF housing market, Kristin was able to help us identify and package a winning offer for a much desired condo in Bernal Heights, and all this done within 2 weeks of our beginning our search!   The process of acquiring a home in SF is arduous and full with complex documents and procedures.  Kristin is so experienced and skillful that she patiently hand held us throughout this process, giving us clear explanations and guidance for each step along the way.  Always in her very warm and very objective non-imposing ways, she welcomed all our questions, no matter how small or stupid, and she responded promptly, pleasantly and knowledgeably.  She made invaluable suggestions that helped us have our offer accepted, even though it was not the highest monetary offer.   We were so fortunate to have Kristin’s help in acquiring a really charming home and we would highly recommend Kristin to anyone interested in purchasing a place in SF, especially in Bernal Heights.

Congratulations! Bernal Heights has been named hottest neighborhood in the country by Redfin. Small town feel combined with big city convenience, great community, relative affordability, easy commute… We couldn’t agree more.

The San Francisco Chronicle’s SFgate followed up with this article on January 16 and this is a video segment from the local CBS station that aired on the evening news that same day.
