Life-long Bay Area resident. Born in Walnut Creek, raised in Berkeley, working & residing in San Francisco since 1988.

After graduating from U.C. Berkeley in 1982, Todd worked in a variety of capacities with the Chevron Corporation.  The last was in an area of property valuation and marketing, which paved the way for his transition into the San Francisco residential real estate industry in 1988.
Much has happened in the dynamic San Francisco Bay Area real estate market since then, and Todd has been there to experience all of it. That experience directly benefits the clients he works so diligently for. He has had years of hands-on experience in the renovation of properties for profit, and knows what is, and is not worth doing, and to what extent, for the maximum return. He has personally taken property through the complex condominium-conversion process, and has access to the best industry resources to ensure that the right decisions are made in a timely manner. Todd has also successfully navigated the probate sale process in San Francisco on behalf of clients, and again, can provide access to the best, most appropriate professionals, as necessary.

Over the years, throughout all the transactions, Todd’s dedication to his clients has remained his highest priority. His ability to successfully negotiate fabulous deals for his clients on both ends of the selling spectrum is nearly legendary (among his clients that is!). At the same time, his reputation among his peers within the industry remains unblemished. Todd has truly been able to strike a balance between his savvy negotiating skills and his passion for maintaining the highest ethical standards possible.

Todd is FANTASTIC. Extremely detail oriented and excellent at managing the process. The fact that he was able to sell Mom’s house at a reasonable price amidst growing COVID related fears was quite something. He also cares deeply which at the end of the day matters quite a bit. And he is good negotiator as it relates to managing seller expenses. He went above and beyond for sure!

I was referred to Todd by a trusted financial planner over a year and a half ago. He and I first met in February of 2016 and discussed the market, possible approaches to the sale of my 1902 Victorian and steps that would be necessary for it to be placed on the market. I had interviewed and considered multiple agents but immediately trusted Todd. Todd and I met again September 2017 after I had taken the steps we had discussed earlier. We explored options regarding minor renovations and staging versus leaving it as it was. We established an asking price (which was a stretch) and during the next week he showed the house to a small group of agents, stagers and contractors/developers to test the market. It still had not been listed when a fellow agent contacted him regarding a couple that were very interested. He showed the property on Sunday Oct 1 and Monday the 2nd the made an offer which I accepted. The property closed escrow 23 days later. Todd was superb in coaching me on the steps which were first needed for preparation for the sale. Once those steps were accomplished we proceeded to strategize on the best approach. His coaching and expertise resulted in my house being sold within two weeks of his first showing without needing the time and expense of costly renovations. Between the time Todd and I met in September 2017 to escrow closing was 38 days. I was thrilled with his service, expertise and the results.

Todd has been such a valuable resource for our family. He has taught us about real estate in San Francisco with all its quirks. He is a wonderful listener and is honestly interested in helping find the perfect fit for everyone he works with. We have recommended other friends to him and they are also grateful for his advice and help. He is patient, he helped us with budgeting, knows the city and its history well, and is a wonderful teacher about structural issues related to earthquakes, old houses, and deed restrictions. My husband and I highly recommend Todd. We continue to seek his advice from time to time and enjoy all our interactions with him.

Todd is the best! An exceptional real estate professional, with deep knowledge of the San Francisco market. I count on his experience and solid advice. In late 2010, an uncertain time for San Francisco real estate, he guided my family to a successful sale of an apartment. At every step, his transparency built trust. The final negotiation stage was critical, and Todd's skills and integrity won the day. Since then, he has continued to help me with real estate questions and issues. He is always responsive and kind -- and has the best resources! I highly recommend Todd to any San Francisco seller or buyer.

As a buyer I have used Todd 3 times including one more complicated transaction. My first experience with him showed me how empathetic he was to my specific interests, needs and financial circumstances. From this foundation Todd's extensive and archival knowledge plus love of San Francisco kicked in. Each trip out to look at properties was a lesson in neighborhood history as he creatively looked to show me options beyond areas I was familiar with. It really opened my eyes to new possibilities! When we found the perfect place each time he guided me carefully through the bidding and purchase process all the while remaining on the lookout for other properties that might come up during that interim that could be considered as well. His knowledge of structural issues as well as his love for SF architecture was useful during inspections as well as after as I considered renovations. After purchase he continued to be a knowledgable source recommended contractors for various repairs and renovations. Each time I was 110% satisfied and thrilled with my new place. He is the best at what he does and will know the best restaurant in your new neighborhood!

Todd is hands down the most genuine and honest in the business. He really cares about his clients and wants them to get the best deals for their homes. I can't thank Todd enough for helping me find a home in SF to start a new chapter in my life. I highly recommend Todd to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He will take excellent care of you.

We've bought two properties and sold one with Todd. Todd is the most insightful agent we've ever met, seeing both the best features and the challenges of a property. We truly value his opinion on every aspect of a deal. He's incredibly hard-working and accessable. I can't think of a time I wasn't able to reach him even when we needed to do a deal over the winter holiday. Todd is such a genuinely nice guy people sense his honesty and want to work with him. We found a property we loved, but we didn't think we could come together on the terms-Todd stayed calm and focused and got the deal done. It was a work of genius and we're now in our dream home. We highly recommend working with Todd.

Todd was a very straightforward agent who was very knowledgeable about the local market and the timing of our sale. He positioned our property in its best light, created a good buzz, and secured a fantastic sales price for our property. I would highly recommend him to others seeking to buy or sell a home in San Francisco.

I can't say enough about Todd. We sold our condo with him and bought a house in the late 90's. Then 6 years later he helped us sell my father's condo and last year he helped us sell our family home. I would not ever use anyone else. He knows his job very well and I trust him and to top it off he is fun to hang out with. I also have counted on him over the years to refer me to tried and true people to help with all my home improvement projects

– Wendy L.

A colleague referred me to Todd with an enthusiastic recommendation - he was absolutely right to do so. Todd represented my wife and I in a superb manner, despite some San Francisco - specific issues with the sale of our condo that might have daunted others. Throughout the process we trusted Todd's judgement, and are very pleased that we did. We have already recommended Todd to our neighbors.

– Steven G.

We interviewed several realtors before choosing Todd. Todd is very professional, efficient, thorough, does his homework, and does a great job. East to work with, always a quick reply to any questions asked or help needed. Todd definitely knows the business, and I would recommend him highly to anyone. I will definitely use him again to purchase or sell real estate.
