Testimonials

Seth is the most ethical person you'll ever find in real estate, or anywhere else for that matter, and we cannot recommend him more highly.

My husband and I have the highest praise for Seth Skolnick. Seth guided us through the purchase of our Victorian on Alamo Square and the sale of our family home with the grace of of an angel and the knowledge of a seasoned pro. Seth is the most ethical person you'll ever find in real estate, or anywhere else for that matter, and we cannot recommend him more highly.

We love our house, and Seth made it possible.

If it hadn't been for Seth's knowledge, I never would have known all of our options when the house we had been renting for 7 years went on the market by the owner. Seth was able to talk us through various scenarios and educate us about the property. With this greater understanding, we realized that owning in San Francisco was actually a viable option for us, and the house was not out of reach. Our offer was accepted on Christmas eve 2010, and we closed in January. We love our house, and Seth made it possible. Thank you!

This is our third transaction with Seth and we'll definitely use him again.

Another happy customer! Seth just helped my wife and I sell a condo in SOMA/Mission Bay. He helped us through the whole process (listing analysis, staging selection, countering bids, etc.) and made it very easy for us. This is our third transaction with Seth and we'll definitely use him again.

Super smart, knowledgeable, motivated, direct--absolutely zero b.s.--efficient, available night & day, and also fun to drive around with.

Seth patiently supported me throughout my 4-year path to buying my first home. He always put my interests first, notably speaking out immediately when undisclosed downsides emerged during escrow to advise me to get out of contract. The home i eventually purchased is a TIC, which makes the transaction very complicated. Seth was completely on top of all the details of this (and clearly way ahead of most of the sellers' agents we encountered) and i simply could not have gotten through it without him. 

Super smart, knowledgeable, motivated, direct--absolutely zero b.s.--efficient, available night & day, and also fun to drive around with. Would recommend him to anyone i know (or don't know, but expect to like).

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Seth whole-heartedly!

In 2009 my wife and I decided we wanted to buy our first home in San Francisco. After carefully researching agents, Seth came to the top of my list. When we met in person, I was truly amazed at the amount of time he must have taken to prepare materials for us as well as the amount of time he was willing to spend in explaining not only the house buying process, but the specifics of the SF market. As first time buyers who knew nothing about the housing world, we greatly appreciated his approach. 

Once we found a home, he managed the paperwork and communications with all parties, and connected us with a wonderful lender. We were buying with an FHA which required that appliances be present for inspection, but there were none on the property. Seth helped move appliances in, including getting a refrigerator up the front 13 steps. Our loan process was complicated by trust income which made us want to give up at one point, but Seth stepped in and got it straightened out. He was more than an agent. We literally couldn't have done it without him. 

A few years later when we decided to sell the house in SF, we knew we wanted to work with Seth. Seth put together a very beautiful and thorough proposal. He explained the process and timing for every aspect of the sale. We needed to have the house painted inside and out, staged, and some landscaping done. Seth came through again with wonderful connections. Seth orchestrated the entire process beautifully and all parties had their parts done on time. Two weeks later when it was time to review offers, we were amazed to find we had 12 offers all over $1,000,000.00! Two offers were all cash and three offers were over $1,200,000.00! In the end we were able to get more than 30% over asking! It went far better than we imagined and was entirely due to Seth's knowledge and thorough managing. 

His knowledge of the SF market, experience, ability to inform and educate, as well as his precision handling are an incredibly invaluable asset to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Bay Area. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Seth whole-heartedly!

Seth is a must-have partner during any sale or a purchase.

Seth is a must-have partner during any sale or a purchase. He handled a very complicated recently converted TIC to Condo sale and did so with ease, tact and super efficiently. Organized, level-headed, experienced, connected, clear, responsive, hard working and it shows. If you are lucky enough to have this master marketer accept your listing or represent you, you are in great hands and you will will sell at the best possible price to the most appropriate buyer, or get the dream house of your choice.

I would definitely go with Seth if I had to buy or sell another property.

Seth was recommended to me as the selling agent in one of my SF properties. As soon as I had my first encounter on the phone I felt Seth was not only knowledgable of his sector but extremely practical and knew how to relate to a client. He was able to quickly understand and assess my objectives and worked seamlessly to deliver. He actually over-delivered my expectations. He was always available over the phone and was a great sounding board for many matters regarding the sale so no matter if you a first-timer or experienced, I believe you could find a great added value and strong advantages in working with Seth. I would definitely go with Seth if I had to buy or sell another property.

Seth is a consumate professional, and has become a friend in this process.

I met Seth after I made the decision to move permanently to SF. My previous real estate ventures have all been east coast based, so SF was a black box to me in terms of housing classifications, neighborhoods, etc - as well as the "no lawyer involved" concept in SF. 

Given my complete lack of knowledge, AND the fact I was buying right as the national housing market was burning to the ground, I'm surprised that Seth stayed with me. He patiently showed me all of the neighborhoods, what I could expect for my price range, and walked me through the logistics of purchasing in SF, as well as the legalities in the mountain of paperwork. All throughout Seth remained friendly, interested and inventive... in the end, we found what wound up being the perfect house. 

Seth is a consumate professional, and has become a friend in this process. I've since recommended Seth to several friends who have moved to the area, and I won't hesitate to work with him again in the future.

Looking for a great Realtor in San Francisco? You have found him!

Looking for a great Realtor in San Francisco? You have found him! Seth was my realtor for purchasing a 3-unit building in Noe Valley. Many realtors I have met are ok, few are like Seth, simply outstanding. He was both strategic in his counsel as well as great with all the things you expect, like getting the paperwork and negotiations right. Seth listens well and responds with his in-depth knowledge of the San Francisco market and how that matches up to your needs. Look no further for someone you can trust.
