You had the care and attention to detail of a good physician … . We especially appreciated your ability to listen and educate, to lay out reasonable options, and to accompany us with patience and persistence. In our profession, we call this great bedside manner.
“I recently had the pleasure of hiring Andrew to help me sell my condo in Pacific Heights.
Andrew committed enormous time and energy to ensuring that my unit was optimally situated for a fast and lucrative sale. Andrew regularly went above and beyond the call of duty. For example, Andrew hired tradesmen and supervised minor renovations to the unit (while I was on vacation!), resulting in an enormous return on investment for me. He never took the easy way out, always expending extra effort to make sure that the unit went for the right price. When he interviewed stagers, for example, he did not simply suggest a stager that he was comfortable with, but instead insisted on interviewing three separate stagers to find the professional that was just right for my unit. And when a potential thorny title issue arose with the City, he expertly guided this issue to a quick resolution so as not to affect the sale. He did all of this in a few short weeks, while juggling numerous other commitments.
Thanks to Andrew’s tireless efforts, my unit received multiple offers and went for well above the asking price. This is undoubtedly the result of Andrew’s hard work and expertise. “
“My wife initially chose Andrew based on an interaction both of them had during an open house. His demeanor and sincerity were all she needed to assess that we had found a trustworthy agent. I felt the same shortly after having met Andrew for the first time. I knew that he would be ideal for us in what, at that time, seemed like an impossible journey.
“Andrew has got to be the exemplar of agents. We knew nothing about the ‘game.’ Andrew patiently walked us through the entire process, step-by-step…many, many times.
“The six long months it took to finally close on a home was completely worth it. We absolutely love our new home, too! Andrew stayed with us every step of the way. It never mattered what time we called or what questions we had; he was always ready. He accompanied us on all scheduled appointments without fail. His dedication was unique and refreshing.
“As a result, the actual transaction was a fairly easy and stress-free process. We attributed that to our relationship with Andrew and the fact that he kept everything calm. To that end, we never panicked. Instead, we became more determined than ever to close quickly and sign documents (which is exactly what we did!).
“Honestly, Andrew has more strengths than can possibly be identified here.Andrew is patient, ambitious, dedicated, diligent, honest, practical, skilled (in all facets, especially in creating offers), interactive, a great listener, and a brilliant equalizer (meaning that while we knew little if anything, he always made us feel equal to his level), just to name a few.
“While we know that you cannot use this paragraph in any customer-relations testimonial, I’ll say it nonetheless: The above is no b.s. Andrew is amazing. He should be directing the staff rather than working the front lines. He’s a global thinker. We believe his game belongs at a higher level.”
“My fiance and I recently purchased a 1 Bedroom Loft Condo in the Mission area of San Francisco and would not have been able to do so without the relationship we had with our agent Andrew Roth.
“Our situation was very unique due to the fact that we had relocated to San Francisco from Chicago and were first time homebuyers. We found Andrew on the web and as with any new process were very nervous that Andrew might be pushy or not as qualified as we would like for such a big decision. Andrew immediately prevailed with his expertise and willingness to work with us given our situation.
“My fiance’s sister is a real estate agent and provided us a list of questions to ask Andrew. Andrew took the time to sit down and write out all the answers we needed to move forward with the process. Andrew took us around to places to get a feel for what we were interested in and then week by week followed up by getting appointments setup for us to see places. We also knew that every Saturday morning Andrew would send us an e-mail with links to prospective properties so that we could plan accordingly for the weekend and week.
“The biggest quality we admired in Andrew was his calming effect. In making offers, Andrew would sit down with us and use whatever tools he had to help us gauge what amount would need to be offered to be accepted for individual properties. In one instance early on were countered and were going back and forth late into the night trying to figure out what to do. In that time Andrew remained calm, talked pros and cons with us, but ultimately stated, ‘If it doesn’t feel right, then don’t worry — we’ll find something.’
“In the end my fiance and I settled on a ‘For Sale by Owner,’ a situation where we had the option of moving forward without Andrew’s assistance. Despite that option, my fiance and I felt that it was best to have Andrew on our side and moved forward with his representation. Andrew was able to use his knowldege of the process and draw up a contract that was fair to the seller and protected my fiance and me from any pitfalls.
“In the future, there is no doubt that Andrew will be representing us on either side of the process.”
“Andrew Roth is the greatest! We couldn’t have been happier with his work on our behalf, and I don’t think we would have gotten the price we did as quickly as we did without him.
“When we needed to take care of something in order to meet the schedule we’d agreed upon for the first open house, Andrew tactfully reminded us of the due date and offered to help in any way possible. And we took him up on his offer of help since we’d already moved out of the City.
“He coordinated all of the contractors doing the cleaning, painting, and refinishing work, found us a handy man for minor repairs, and worked closely with the stager. He held the open houses himself rather than delegating this to an assistant, and when potential buyers wanted to see our home again, he made sure to be there with them.
“In the end, he did an outstanding job negotiating with the eventual buyers and their agent. We believe the price we got was as high as possible in such a short period of time – just three weeks during the run up to the holidays. I worked in real estate development for 20 years myself, and I’ve dealt with many real estate agents. Andrew is the best I’ve ever worked with.”
