Hands down, the best real estate agent I've worked with in San Francisco. He is professional, data-driven, creative, ethical, business-minded, and an incredibly skilled deal maker. I had a listing in the inner mission that went on the market with a different agent shortly before COVID and the shelter-in-place restrictions. After having no offers for almost 60 days and now faced with a citywide shutdown, prospects were looking grim. I hired them to change our selling strategy. They came prepared with a detailed strategy on how to navigate the COVID-impacted real estate market - leveraging technology, virtual tours, better photos, a revamped marketing strategy, and creativity to target the right buyers for our property.

Within 2 weeks of changing agents, we had accepted an attractive offer and sold our property within the month which I'd say is nothing short of a miracle. Todd turned an extremely stressful situation for me into one where I felt confident in Todd that he would manage every aspect of the deal and the relationship with the buyers in a way that had my best interests in mind and took the pressure away from me to manage the details. As a person who has bought and sold many properties in San Francisco over the last 2 decades, I would say that Todd is amongst the best of his profession and I will trust him with all my future deals.

Marcus came highly recommended to us by multiple friends and he completely lived up to the hype. He was fundamental in our securing the absolutely most perfect home for us. He is professional and personable. He has an incredible breadth of knowledge about real estate. He is efficient while being thorough. Every minute we spent talking with Marcus was valuable. With Marcus’ guidance, the first offer we made was accepted only 6 days after the property was listed. We felt the property was well under-valued based on the list price so it was hard to know exactly how much over to bid. We ended up being up against multiple other offers, one willing to go as high as the amount we came in with, but ultimately we won the bid. Our new home is an absolute dream and we feel that we got more than we thought we would for less than what we had anticipated spending. (This was based on 6 months of market …

(This was based on 6 months of market research prior to COVID we visited 88 places in person, mostly open houses, and viewed another 200 plus virtually, in various neighborhoods in San Francisco.) We continue the “highly recommend” stamp of approval for Marcus if and when you are in the real estate market!

I have to say, Justin made our home buying experience just awesome. It was an incredibly stressful escrow due to the lender, however, Justin was a shining star throughout the entire process. He is native to San Francisco, extremely patient, and highly educated in all things real estate. If you’re in the market to buy or sell, please do yourself a favor and hire Justin!

Todd and Marcus’s reputation precedes them, and I say it with full sincerity! After working with them for a year and a half and eventually buying our first home, I now know why they are so highly regarded in the industry and sought after by other buyers. At the end of the day, the two of them together bring the kind of market insights, dedication, credibility, and relationships that ultimately make the difference and get it done. As first time buyers in San Francisco, we saw how daunting the process could be, and how fast homes were moving. Sometimes what we need is the right window of opportunity- to see a coveted home or the right strategy to stand out against many competitive offers. Todd and Marcus provided us with that extra bit of guidance that ended up going a long way. When it came to discussing offers, the two of them balanced the art and science to help us make sense of the mar…

We felt so confident with them that we decided to go into the contract even as the pandemic hit and uncertainties were high, knowing this was the right home for us. We are very happy to be in our new home and we are so grateful to Todd who was 100% our partner and advisor.

I couldn't be happier with my realtor, Ron Salter, of Compass. He was extremely responsive and very pro-active in communicating with me, from teaching me about the local market to the purchase of my new condo. I wish I could find some criticism to help him better himself in his career, but I honestly can't think of anything that he could have done differently or better for me. Not being from San Francisco, I was nervous and surprised by this market. I had some difficult moments in understanding the process that I'm not sure any other realtor would have had the patience to deal with me. He answered all of my questions (which were many) and assisted me with all issues throughout the entire process. I wasn't entirely sure what the process would entail and how much work it would take, but Ron was extremely informative and made it simple. You could tell right off the bat that he takes his c…

I don't think Compass could have a better realtor out there representing them!

I've had the pleasure of working with Marcus twice in the last five years. The first time, he helped my now husband and I purchase a charming, single-family house in San Mateo. I believe there were several offers on the table, including one that was very competitive with ours, and he helped turned ours into the winner. Most recently, he helped me purchase a gorgeous condo in Burlingame. I would've never even dreamt of putting an offer on this place a couple of months ago, but I'm not kidding when I said he made the purchase happen. Throughout both experiences, he and his team were very professional, friendly, and responsive, making this transaction a quick and smooth one. I really appreciated how he was available on a moment's notice to drive to the Peninsula and view potential properties with me and at all times of the day to answer my various questions about the real estate market, eco…

He is everything you would want in a real estate agent, and I look forward to working with him again.

Our friend recommended Ron Salter to us after he helped them buy their house. We were so grateful for this Ron Salter made buying a house almost too easy. He was patient as we figured out what we wanted from our house and really took to heart what our priorities were. He never pushed us to make decisions that we were uncomfortable with (and in fact suggested that we slow down with our decision-making process) and always gave us a thorough rundown of each place we visited. We could not be happier with the place we eventually bought. Ron found the listing off-market and worked with us to figure our offer strategy. It's also worth mentioning that all of this house hunting was done during the coronavirus pandemic. Ron watched the housing market and would give us regular updates on how it was responding to the pandemic. And of course, he always had a mask and made sure to properly social dist…

I evaluated four different realtors to sell my South Beach condo next to the ballpark before deciding upon Marcus and Todd based on their knowledge of the market and professionalism. Marcus's knowledge of my neighborhood and building, in particular, was greater by far than anyone else's I'd spoken with and was the deciding factor. Most of my interaction was with Marcus with occasional check-ins with Todd on big picture matters. They were the right measure of encouraging and forthright, providing detailed guidance with the considerable paperwork and regular conversations along the way, all while being respectful of my time. At the end of the process, I came away with a far better result than anticipated, a great offer (one of several above ask), and a close in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Well done Marcus and Todd!

The home-buying process is known to be overwhelming, however, Ron made the process extremely smooth and productive throughout, from our introduction through my escrow close. He immediately established himself as a trustworthy resource and his actions time and time again made it apparent that he had my best interests as his priority. He made it clear when a property was not in my best interests based on his expertise and knowledge and made himself available at any point, regardless of the hour or day. His responsiveness, knowledge, and strategic approach led to me finding my perfect home. I highly recommend Ron to anyone in the market for a home, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

This duo is the most strategically adept and relentlessly effective agent we've ever worked with. We were selling a unique property that would have likely appealed to a relatively small group of people with particular tastes. Todd and Marcus sized this up and developed a customized plan that worked incredibly well. The offer we received a half a week in was far greater than we'd hoped for, and set a record for this type of housing. And later, when the buyer's financing fell through, Todd personally approached another bank to successfully find the seller a mortgage. I've never heard of that kind of dedication before. If you can work with these guys, you'll be working with the best.

I am happy to say that this is my second transaction with Todd and Marcus. And, once again, they did a flawless job this time helping my wife and I sell our house in San Carlos, California. From start-to-finish, they demonstrated their expert knowledge of the peninsula real estate market, brought insights to pricing strategy, communicated early and often, and negotiated a more favorable price for us. I know that they always have our best interests at heart. We will for sure use them again if we buy and sell in the future, thank you, Todd and Marcus!

Teddy P.

Ron was super helpful in helping my parents and I find a home in San Francisco. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and attentive to your needs and will work diligently to help find the perfect home for you. Anytime we had a question about the process or the specific property we were purchasing, Ron responded almost immediately. With his help, we were able to find a home and close in a very short and efficient time frame. Definitely the best agent around would recommend going through Ron if you are looking to find a home.

Suchi S.

Todd is a phenomenal agent! We were lucky enough to work with him to sell our house (which he incidentally also helped us buy 7 years ago!) during COVID. He is amazing all-round - 1) he knows the market intimately 2) he has great instincts on how to position the house when to take an offer 3) he cares more about you than he does himself. He loves this job and that love and care come through everything that he does. Super grateful to have him and his team working with us.

Marcus and Todd handled every step with perfection, from the initial meeting about the market analysis, pricing, and timeline, arranging all the contractors, to the listing and closing process. They know every detail about the SOMA area and every unit type in the buildings. We never had to go to the property once. They managed to get us multiple buyers and helped us with a mega speed closing, all during a time of the corona-virus craziness. We can't recommend them more.

Jonathan B.

We enjoyed working with Marcus. He was always calm, personal, and reasonable with everyone he dealt with everything from other professionals in the business to the people on the other side of the transaction and us. He's knowledgeable about San Francisco neighborhoods and home furnishings and connected us to lenders who helped with our transaction. We'd recommend Marcus.

Dana D.

Marcus helped my husband and I navigate the challenging condo market in San Francisco. He was knowledgeable, patient, and very helpful throughout the process. We appreciated his willingness to really understand our priorities and work with us as we finalized our decision. You won't go wrong with choosing Marcus for your real estate needs!

Samuel D.

Todd and Marcus are both passionate and professional in serving the need of selling my house. Also, they did a splendid job in every aspect of the process of selling my house. They have excellent taste and provided excellent advice for every aspect of the process.

Buyer

Todd is a gem. When I started my home search I had a pretty good idea of the sort of place I was looking for. That said, I also knew I would need assistance with the offer and closing process as well as navigating the information and data that was out there that would help inform my decision. To start, Todd is super responsive, which is something I cannot emphasize enough. When I came across places I was interested in he walked through documents and answered my many questions in an extremely timely manner. Whenever we reviewed data he was thorough and treated me like a competent adult rather than trying to water anything down (something that has happened with other agents). And, when it came time to make an offer on my dream home, he helped me put together an offer that won against the decently sized (10 offers!) competition. His punctuality, knowledge of the market, attention to detail,…

Buyer

Marcus has that wisdom that only years of experience in the field and a native San Franciscan can bring. He combines a meticulous examination of data with a fine understanding of the intangibles to most of us, oh so difficult to pin down to paint a nuanced and amazingly accurate picture for the would-be buyer. He advises but doesn’t push, educates but doesn’t lecture, tailoring his services to the needs of the individual client. Incredibly responsive, patient, and strategic, he advocates for his clients and goes the extra mile. I felt very prepared for every eventuality because of Marcus’s support, and I ended up the owner of a beautiful home. He and Todd Montgomery Marcus’s equally capable partner and backup are the only realtors I am recommending to my friends, and I recommend them enthusiastically.

Buyer | Seller

Marcus, Todd, and Sandy were a great team to work with. They were highly organized, responsive, prepared, and thorough. Our process moved on a consistent schedule, and I credit them with keeping the schedule and process on-time. I would recommend them to others looking for a great team!
