Welcome to San Francisco, where every neighborhood tells a unique story and offers a distinct lifestyle to suit every taste and preference. Let's start with Pacific Heights, an iconic district known for its stunning Victorian homes, panoramic views of the Bay, and upscale amenities.

Heading downtown, we find the vibrant Financial District, a bustling hub of commerce and culture in the heart of the city. Here, towering skyscrapers share the skyline with historic landmarks like the Transamerica Pyramid, while bustling streets buzz with activity from dawn till dusk.

-Kerry Enright

We worked with Teri to buy our new house and sell our existing townhouse in Petaluma. In a difficult market, she educated us about the dynamics of finding a new home in the community— and helped us find our dream home so quickly. She also was incredibly thoughtful in the way she worked with us to prepare to sell our existing home. In both cases, she used very relevant and timely data to formulate her recommendations, and always shared her vast experience as well. She is a great negotiator, and we felt so good about where we landed on price points for both the purchase and the sale. Executing both transactions went so smoothly— Teri and her team made it so easy— from their due diligence to coordinating inspections, recommending service providers and financing options, and transferring utilities. They spent a lot of time with us— helping us take measurements, bringing flowers and doormats for staging! We feel like we have not only found a great colleague and resource, but we have also made a new friend. We highly recommend Teri Kainz and her team.

-Jill & Larry

Teri was introduced to us by a close friend who has known, and greatly respected, her since they attended high school together decades ago. This was one of the most valuable referrals we have ever received! Not only is Teri a wonderful person to spend days touring towns and homes with, but she's extremely knowledgeable, and most importantly, takes great pride in working with integrity. She worked with our calendar, when we were able to make trips into the area, shared her significant insights into the tradeoffs inherent in different options available to us, and NEVER made us feel rushed or pressured to do anything we did not want to do. Even after "the checks cleared", she's been nothing short of an extraordinary resource and friend to us, as we continue to build relationships in the community.
