San Francisco Real Estate
Pete did a fantastic job helping us sell our home in Noe Valley. He sold it without putting it on the market at a price over the asking price, all while we were on a two week vacation! He coordinated all showings and inspections during times that didn’t disturb us.
Five stars is not enough for Pete. I know that I’ll come off sounding like an advertisement, but I absolutely believe that Pete is the best in the business. He is smart, incredibly knowledgeable and experienced, fair, dependable, and easy to work with. Above all, Pete is a man of integrity.
I’ve done six real estate transactions with Pete (bought three, sold three – story below) and each time Pete has delivered results above and beyond all expectations. Pete’s knowledge of San Francisco real estate and his connections to all kinds of businesses (mortgage brokers, lenders, title companies, stagers, all kinds of contractors and builders) has made everything go smoothly every time. And when there are bumps in the road, Pete has taken care of everything.
I’ve been a client of Pete’s since 1998, when I started looking for a house to buy in San Francisco. I didn’t really know what I wanted and it was a crazy time in the market. Pete worked with me for 14 months before finding the perfect property, and was incredibly patient and flexible as he helped me figure out what was really important to me in a house. We made several offers, with Pete giving great advice and support every time. The house I ended up buying was listed for sale by owner. The truth is, without Pete, I never would have found it. It was a great house, and I got it at a great price.
In 2004, my future wife and I decided to move in together to a set of condos, one of which she already owned. I ended up selling my house and buying the other unit in the two unit building, and we lived in both. Pete sold my house and helped me buy the condo. Pete helped get the house ready for sale, hiring stagers, doing “all the little things” to make the house look its best and to make things go smoothly. The results were amazing: we got multiple offers over asking and closed in less than two weeks (well, it was 2004!).
This past year, my wife and I found a house we both really loved and decided to go for it and sell both of our condos and purchase the house. It has been quite an adventure. Pete helped us put the right offer together to get our dream house at a fair price and has worked with us every step of the way – taking care of each and every detail. He also did all the work to get our condos ready for sale (and it was quite a bit of work). Pete coordinated all the contractors, dealt with some sticky neighbor issues and just generally made magic happen. In this down market, we got multiple offers above asking after only 10 days on the market. The condos both closed within 45 days.
When you work with Pete, he makes you feel that you are his only client. He is always available – by phone, email, text. He answers his phone or returns your call promptly. He goes out of his way to make things easy for you. I just couldn’t be happier with Pete. In fact, I am sure that he is simply the best agent out there.
I would never consider buying or selling in San Francisco without an agent, and I wholeheartedly recommend Pete as the finest in the business.
5 stars. Pete is honest, competent, extremely helpful, an excellent communicator, pleasant and very experienced. He handled every complex aspect of our real estate sale like a true expert. We feel very lucky to have worked with him. His assistance extends beyond the real estate sale to advice on several areas related to real estate. Can’t say enough good about Pete.
My experience with Pete was absolutely terrific. He was able to bring really good value to the process of buying a home in San Francisco. Pete was very patient with me since I was a first time home buyer and offered different perspectives that ultimately helped me make a much more educated decision as what to buy and how much it was worth.
I ended up with a fantastic house in a great location for a very reasonable price and I am sure that I would not have recognized the opportunity without his valuable guidance. I have and will continue to refer Pete to my friends and as a matter of fact I am already working with him in trying to find the next big opportunity!
Pete is extremely professional, competent, helpful and excellent to work with in every way. He seems to put equal effort into all levels of real estate sales and is very helpful with referrals to related services. He will always be our first choice.
Pete and Tiffany are excellent. It was time to sell the house I grew up in. Pete was sensitive to the emotions and seriously knowledgeable about the neighborhood. I trusted him the instant we met. They both held my hand through the entire process with patience, always ensuring I understood what was happening (special thanks to Tiffany for sometimes re-explaining things to me!)
Pete was always in contact, easy to reach by phone or email. He was a Godsend for taking care of the little bits and pieces you don’t think of or don’t know how to handle.
Trust Pete – you will not regret it. He has integrity and tells the truth. Excellent team.
Pete is a professional — He is experienced, reliable, honest and a very hard worker. Pete has a vast amount of knowledge about the real estate market in San Francisco, and has always been very helpful when providing his expert advice in any situation.
My husband and I have been clients of Pete Brannigan for over 12 years. During that time he has helped us both buy and sell properties, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. I have recommended Pete to several of our friends over the years, and each of them had a great buying or selling experience with Pete.
Pete constantly amazes me with his ability and willingness to go above and beyond. We have been happy with his services time and time again. I highly recommend Pete Brannigan and his team at Brown and Company Real Estate.
I agree with the review that states that five stars is not enough for Pete. He is terrific. You would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not at least set up an introduction meeting with him before selecting a real estate agent. Here are some reasons. He is very knowledgeable about the City’s various neighborhoods, as a long time resident of the City. He listens to what you are interested in, and shows you listings that correspond to your interests.
Most importantly, he is great at noticing negative points about a property. most of which I have not noticed (I am a potential Buyer). Understandably, a real estate agent inherently has a conflict of interest b/c he/she only gets paid if the transaction closes. For example, when I purchased a condo once before, the agent said only good things about the property, and it turned into “the money pit.” I sold it two and a half years later at a more than $50k loss. I trust Pete 110%.
He constantly reminds me ” no pressure,” and genuinely seems more interested in finding you a place where you will be happy than in closing a deal. In addition, he is a fun person to ride in a car with looking at various properties! I give him my highest recommendation.
