Buying a Home in Bernal Heights

This week is a 5-star review from our client, Robert, who bought a home in Bernal Heights with the help and guidance of our lead buyer specialist, Josh Ortiz.

You want Josh Ortiz and Danielle Lazier in your corner if you’re looking to buy or sell in San Francisco. Full stop.

We discovered DL+A serendipitously and knew after our very first intro call with Josh that it was the right fit. Josh is both genial and candid, approachable and professional. He didn’t just help us find homes, he helped us discover our needs and wants and clarify our vision for our first home.

Buying in the Bay Area in a historic seller’s market is no easy feat. Josh tactfully delivered honest feedback when we set our expectations too high and was spot on in his assessment of each property – he provided an expert, unbiased opinion on his perceived value of the home and was impressively accurate in predicting the likely sale price over asking. He was also hugely patient and supportive when we adjusted our priorities midway through the process. He struck the perfect balance of providing space to think and encouraging action when we finally found THE home. Josh was a skillful advocate and negotiator, and secured a deal that was perfect for both the sellers and us. 

Josh isn’t just a real estate agent – he’s a sounding board, a coach, and a trusted advisor. We are lucky to now call Danielle and Josh friends, and could not be more grateful to have worked with the entire team!
