Justin helped us sell our house in SF and we couldn't give him a higher recommendation. We interviewed multiple brokers, including Justin, and initially hired a team that was the top selling in our SF neighborhood, figuring they were a sure bet. Our house was larger than most in our area and had some other unique features, but was fully updated and seemed like an easy sell, even with the market slowing at the end of the summer. The team, however, was completely incapable of doing anything beyond the bare minimum they had had to do to sell a house in SF in the sellers' market of the past few years. We did and paid for everything they asked for but they were unable to get people to open houses and the listing agreement expired with zero offers having been made. We were extremely disappointed. At that point, we reached back out to Justin, very nervous as to how to continue. He immediately took control of the situation, had numerous ideas as to how to reach buyers beyond the typical local group and how to improve the presentation of the house.
My husband and I both work in a client service industry (lawyers) and as a result, have high expectations for professionals in other client service industries, which are rarely met. Justin exceeded all of them. He was extremely responsive (phone, email, text and in person) and 100% dependable. He was personally involved in every detail of the listing and sale, no matter how small, and his advice and guidance for us was always spot on. He took into account our specific concerns and worries when advising us (e.g. having already paid for staging and prep work once, every additional cost mattered a lot more) and his guidance was always practical. We had trouble trusting another realtor after our earlier experience and he worked hard to earn our trust. Our house seemed unlikely to be one of his larger sales but we never felt like less than his most important client. When we got an offer, Justin was open and honest as to how he thought we should proceed and we ended up with a price we were content with and a quick sale. In closing, Justin worked harder than I expect any other realtor would have to sell our home and in the end, he delivered.
If someone told me that I would sell my home off market in less than 24 hours during COVID I would have said no way. Justin however had the right contacts and made this seamless and comfortable for me. Explaining everything while maintaining a great sense of humor. His communication and knowledge of selling in California was impressive. I would highly recommend Justin to just get it done. Thank you so much Justin and his team.
Justin helped me by my home and was a pleasure to work with. It was my first time buying and he was my guide through the whole process. He works incredibly hard and was always honest with me about pros and cons of homes I was looking at. He is not pushy and is a true partner in the process! I will work with him on every real estate transaction in the future.
Justin is the absolute best real estate agent! I couldn’t be happier with my experience. He was so on top of everything, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. He’s the reason I was able to find and get my dream home. So grateful! If you want the best real estate agent in the Bay Area, Justin is a must! Thanks so much, Justin!
We used Justin for both buying and selling a home in San Francisco. Our purchase needs were complicated and Justin showed incredible patience with us, never failing to do whatever it took, including putting together bids late at night and dealing with counters and all the other trying realities of SF real estate. If you end up using Justin I'll say this: trust him on pricing. He is incredibly good at this part of the business. On the seller's side, we were basically blown away by his ability to ensure the home was in tip-top shape, such that we barely recognized it. Even dealing with a bad comparable literally upstairs, he got us a price beyond anything we had hoped for, and did so off-market before it ever hit MLS. Ultimately, we went with Justin because he has hustle, and it paid off for us.
Justin was phenomenal to work with. He was extremely responsive and helped me find my dream home. I couldn't have asked for anything more, even with my being in multiple time zones, he would answer my questions and keep the buying process moving regardless of what time it was. His team backed him up 100% and were just as competent. I was in my home in no time with very little headache and he shielded me from the typical home buying stress. Not to mention, I was able to laugh the whole way to signing with his hysterical personality. Thank you Justin, couldn't be more pleased and loving my new home, I would suggest you to anyone in a minute.
When my husband and I decided to put our property on the market this past summer, we knew we needed a broker who had a unique, visionary and creative approach to marketing; an approach in alignment with our extraordinary property, the Villa Montara. After interviewing several brokers, we knew Justin Fichelson was the perfect choice. In addition to the spectacular presentation of our property in both print and web presence, Justin's sensitivity to our needs and understanding who the perfect buyer was for our property resulted in manifesting our goals and intentions for our property in the future. Thank You Justin!
My fiancé and I were looking for the perfect place to call a home. After allot of searching for the best person to help us out we came across Justin, Who first asked us about the type or neighborhood we both preferred and a few other questions. After a. It if time he got back to us with an "off market" place in Sausalito, we instantaneously fell in love with the place and asked Justin to put in our offer. Now here we are three months later and never been happier I would refer Justin for anyone even if it is just for his witty personality!
Justin is a top-notch agent. When my wife and I put our Pacific Heights condo on the market, we had hopes of a quick sale. The timing was not right. After months and months of no action, we decided to switch agents. Justin was our savior. He made us feel that we were his top priority and was able to sell our place when the San Francisco real estate market was struggling. With Justin's social network, personality and knowledge of San Francisco. He is a great fit for any prospective buyers or sellers. We highly recommend him.
Justin recently helped us transact our new home in San Francisco, and was extremely professional throughout the process, and thorough when it came to details and timeline. When it came to mapping out the process, Justin's transaction coordinator reached out ahead of time with updates and requests, and whenever the need arose for other service professionals (painters, contractors, etc.) Justin delivered those requests quickly and with high caliber people on his team. Would recommend!
I'm not sure why you would go with another agent if you are buying/selling in San Francisco. Justin knows real estate is very responsive and moves fast (while also being thorough) which is super necessary in a market like San Francisco. I called Justin after being referred to him and he sold our condo almost exactly two months later for well over asking. He knows people and the industry and was very professional yet easy to get along with. Highly recommend.
My son and I just sold a condo in San Francisco - near the old Candlestick Park area, and Justin represented us. He gave us top service, handling many of the details since both my son and I live away from city. The place sold in just 2 months - bringing in more than we expected, with minimal hassle for us. If you're looking to buy or sell in the Bay Area - look him up.
Justin has represented me both on purchases and sells, he is extremely well connected so it not unusual that the properties get sold before they hit market plus he has access to off market properties that are brought up to him by sellers. He is very good at providing rehab or improvement ideas and has very good marketing strategies as well. I highly recommend Justin.
When it came to buying our first home, Justin knew exactly what to anticipate and how to help us navigate the curve balls and opportunities associated with buying a beautiful property in San Francisco. I appreciated Justin's thoughtfulness, intelligence and intuition that intimately helped us close on our home. I definitely recommend him.
I strongly recommend Justin to help you buy a house in San Francisco. Justin was able to see things in the deal that I never would've seen that helped me negotiate $70,000 off! I can't thank him enough. He is really deeply knowledgeable about the San Francisco real estate market and is super plugged in.
Justin did a remarkable job in selling my SF condo at top dollar in addition to being my buying agent for our house in Larkspur. He is trusting, knowledgeable, and straight-up. He provides input, but he listens to his clients and works to achieve their goals. His outgoing personality makes searching for real estate fun!
Being first time homebuyers, we were thrilled to see how personable and patient Justin was with us through the process. He guided us and also was very willing to explain processes on the way as well as giving us realistic expectations of the market. He also gave us faith that we'd find our dream home and sure enough we did!
We had an amazing experience working with Justin. Always very clear communication and went above and beyond to get this in order when we were working from different cities. Above all, we got the price we were looking for on our amazing property in Bernal Heights and we hope to work with Justin again in the future.
Highly recommend. Have recommended Justin to all my friends too. Justin was selected to be on the television show "Million Dollar Listing". Even after you buy a house with him he helps you understand your neighborhood with helpful articles so you know when a good time is to sell.
Justin is a pro. He helped us with buying our dream home in the Mission District of San Francisco. His experience in the industry, and deep knowledge of the city was evident from his insights and helpful advice he provided throughout the process. With Justin, you're in great hands!
Justin was indispensable in our home buying process. He offered expert advice and guidance throughout each step, which was so appreciated on such an important purchase in our life! I'd highly recommend him as a knowledgable San Francisco agent.
There are few humans that tell it to you straight and just know how to make the impossible happen at the same time. Justin is by far the best that the industry has seen in decades. He has always been our go to man for all our families real estate needs. Thank you Justin!
Justin is incredible. He sold my condo this year for the best price I could have imagined. He is smart, professional, and effective. He knows the real estate market better than anyone. He is really, really good at his job and will get top dollar. Could not recommend more highly.
Justin is an absolute pleasure to work with and a real pro. He helped me close on a house that was already in escrow for another party when we found it! Because of Justin's persistence I was able to get the home that I knew was meant for me.
Pleasure to work with Justin. Sold my duplex for above asking and closed in a couple weeks! He's very resourceful and knows the market well! If you want to match the perfect buyer to your property Justin's the man.
I've known Justin for several years and he has always provided me with the most up to date real estate industry numbers, advice and current trends for my investment Clients.
Justin helped me sell a clients home in Bernal Heights. He was hands on, responsive, managed repairs and marketed the property very successfully. He's a great guy to work with.
