Harold was a godsend to my family this year! We recently completed our second real estate transaction with Harold. Having now worked with him on the seller side and buyer side, I can't say enough about his performance as a realtor. Last year Harold found and helped my parents purchase their stunning dream home in Sonoma County, a sale that required much patience and thoughtfulness. This year he helped us navigate a complicated sale of a building in SF that was part of a family estate involving 3 sellers across multiple family generations, and oh so many persnickety lawyers. This estate business was so complicated that the sale of the building could have been a nightmare, but thanks to Harold it was a breeze! Harold took care of every last detail far and beyond the usual prep for sale elements. He negotiated with estate executors and lawyers, city officials, dealing with so much red tape with a smile on his face, reassuring us every step of the way. In the end we were very happy with not only the price we received for the building but that the process was infinitely smoother than we had prepared for. My family and I feel very grateful for his precision, knowledge, professionalism, and compassionate demeanor. Thank you Harold!!
