"Norm is an experienced and dedicated agent."

Norm is an experienced and dedicated agent. Norm has helped us in buying two homes and selling one and with each experience we felt confident in Norm. We received updates throughout the process and we were informed of all of our options in the buying and selling process. He works tirelessly to provide exceptional service. We highly recommend Norm as an agent and couldn't imagine using another!

"Local knowledge, process expertise, responsiveness, negotiation skills…10+ stars"

Local knowledge, process expertise, responsiveness, negotiation skills...10+ stars should be an option. I had no idea the extent of work involved selling a home. Norm's involvement and knowledge allowed for a stress-free transaction. Always went above and beyond in meeting my needs; both in-person and on the phone. He genuinely cared for my family and the home we were selling. Because selling a home can sometimes be an emotional undertaking, I was more than grateful for Norm's knowledge and deep understanding that this sale was so much more than just a piece of property to us. Norm is a true professional.

"Norm is the real estate agent you want to work with!"

Norm is the real estate agent you want to work with! He is professional and always available for questions. His knowledge as a native San Franciscan and his connnections (with other agents, inspectors, sellers) make him an ideal real estate agent for anyone looking to buy or sell in San Francisco. Not only does he understand the bidding process (and strategies) but he understands the closing process and will get the deal done! We had a challenging time with the bank giving us a loan and Norm was there every step of the way giving advice and making phone calls on our behalf (even when he was on vacation). As native San Franciscans ourselves, we're so grateful to Norm for helping us stay in San Francisco. If you are looking for a real estate agent look no farther. Norm is the best!

"Norm is the best!"

Norm is the best! We were first time home buyers and he steered us with his knowledge and experience into the perfect home. We've lived in San Francisco for 20 years but didn't have a good grasp of all the distinct neighborhoods. Norm showed us around and helped us zero in on the neighborhood we wanted to live in. When he took us out to look at homes, he showed us all the important things to look for when considering a purchase from, the structure, to the architecture, to the livability. Once we found our home, he was thoughtful, smart, and trust-worthy throughout the entire home buying process. He helped us negotiate a smart deal and guided us throughout the entire escrow process. He also tapped into his network of professionals to find us a great lender who helped us close in timely manner. We didn't think we could find a home in San Francisco but Norm made it possible with his positivity, friendliness and expertise. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor to navigate the complex and unique San Francisco housing market.

"I would give Norm six stars if I could."

I would give Norm six stars if I could. My family has used Norm as both a buying and selling agent for almost ten years now, so we have extensive experience working with him on both sides of the fence, including recently. Having gone through the experience multiple times, I couldn't imagine buying home without Norm or using someone else. For most people, buying a home will be the largest and possibly most daunting experience of their lives and having someone as knowledgeable and diligent as Norm is a must. His professionalism and attentiveness is a total cut above almost any agent I've ever met, couple with his impressive knowledge base and hustle to get hard work done. He also personalizes each action to make sure that his client's are getting exactly what they want but in the most pragmatic way. On the buying side, twice now have I been able to get a house below list, both in hot markets. On the selling side, he was able to get above ask. And he tries to make the process as frictionless as possible. And every referral I've made for him has been met with beyond full satisfaction by those clients as well. I wouldn't bother spending more time on finding a better agent, that time is better spent finding the house of your dreams!

"Norm guided me through the extremes of the unique SF housing market"

This simple review does little to capture the value that Norm brings to his clients. I worked with Norm for almost two years, and throughout the entire process he was a trusted thought partner and patient advisor. Norm guided me through the extremes of the unique SF housing market and helped me think through the benefits of purchasing a multifamily building vs a condo/TIC with what I am sure was for him, painstaking thoroughness. Over the 24 months that we worked together, we viewed more than 25 properties and wrote 6 offers. Throughout the process, Norm counseled me with his experience and knowledge, which ranged from zoning and construction laws to renovation and design ideas. Norm advised me to walk away from a number of listings, including one where my offer had been accepted, demonstrating that he is willing to put his clients' interests first, even at the expense of his own interests. As part of my diligence, Norm even helped me work with contractors and the SF Planning Department. To say that he goes the extra mile would be a huge understatement. In the end, we found a great apartment and Norm was able to negotiate a quick close for below asking. I am happy to say that Norm is now a friend and will look forward to working with him again. I can confidently say if you are working with him as your buyers agent, he will help you find the best property for your needs, and if you are working with him as your sellers agent, he will get the best deal for you in record time. Look no further! He is the master!
