We landed our Dream Home in San Francisco!

Jane helped my husband and I land our dream home, and stay in San Francisco.  We started working with Jane after the birth of our first son. We lived in a condo in the Mission at the time. We discussed selling the condo, and Jane suggested holding on to it if we could swing it. We bid on a few places, but were shocked at how aggressively others were offering. We decided to change our strategy quite a few times and Jane was right there ready to formulate a plan and proceed accordingly. After the birth of our 2nd son, we were ready to get into a single family home. By holding on to our condo during that time, we were able to sell it for substantially more than we would have when we originally considered sellin it. Jane suggested that we move into a temporary place so we could clear out the condo, have it painted and even staged. Looking back, that suggestion and the support during the process paid, big time. Shortly after selling our condo, we put in a bid on a beautiful home in Miraloma Park. Jane helped us price competitively but also kept us from getting too aggressive and overpaying. She presented a sound offer in person on our behalf, and it was accepted. It was a long journey, but my husband and I feel grateful for having Jane on our team during the process. We could not be happier with how things turned out.

Thanks Jane!!

“Their knowledge of the market, the neighborhoods, the process and their commitment to finding me a home was unbelievable.”

“My story starts in the spring of 2006 when I relocated to San Francisco. Stacey & Jane came to my rescue. I needed to find someone who not only “got me” but could work with my relo team to find a new home…they could do that & then some. I ended up with a beautiful home & a very smooth transition…they were dedicated to my cause. Their knowledge of the market, the neighborhoods, the process & their commitment to finding me a home was unbelievable.

3 years later…sadly I needed to move again. I called Stacey & Jane…within no time at all we had a solid game plan that resulted in a very successful & speedy sale of my home. I couldn’t have asked for more…but I did…I begged them to fly to NYC & find me a home, but instead they found me a realtor & I now have a new home…

I give them my highest recommendation. I have never worked with a better team…& have & will continue to recomment them…”


“We still call them when we have a question or need advice.”

“What can I say about this amazing team of pressional real estate agents? They were smart, patient, hard working, diligent, understanding and great negotiators for us! We trust their expert knowledge and know they went the extra mile to make sure we are covered. They paid close attention to the detail and helped facilitate difficult []

“Jane’s creativity and negotiating strategy helped us win our dream home”

“As first-time home-buyers, Jane was a real God-send to my wife and me.  She held our hand throughout the process, from early open house visits through the signing of the papers.  At each stage we always felt that we had someone who was looking out for us, ensuring that we were making the right decisions.

Jane’s knowledge of the market and specific neighborhoods throughout the city was a tremendous help.  She showed us properties in our target neighborhoods that met all of our criteria.  Jane was also genuinely interested in helping us find the perfect home.  We looked at a few dozen homes.  Like us, Jane was not satisfied until we found the right home for us.  At no time did we feel pressured to buy a certain property.

When we found the perfect home, Jane’s creativity and negotiating strategy helped us win our dream home even though we were bidding against 6 other parties and had to participate in a multiple counter-offer.  We won even though our offer was not the highest!”


“Jane guided us through the extensive California paperwork, inspection and closing processes with skill.”

“We spent three years in Freemont, CA, and fell in love with the Bay area in general and San Francisco in particular. Though we moved to Denver, we dreamed of returning to the City. When we had the opportunity, we called on Jane. Over the next few years, we made a number of trips to San Francisco to visit friends, and always included at least one outting with Jane in our itinerary. Jane was patient and willing to give her time and advice.

Jane quickly learned what we were seeking and showed us properties she pre-qualified.

Her knowledge of market trends and neighborhoods is extensive and invaluable. As good as she was at finding properties that met our requirements; her post-offer service sold us on her. Jane guided us through the extensive California paperwork, inspection and closing processes with skill.”


“she presented information clearly and concisely, provided insight that helped me understand my choices”

“Jane Mermelstein worked with my partners and me over an extended period of time to find our new home.  Jane was able to work with me to understand the San Francisco market and she presented buildings that fit our criteria on a regular basis.  With her assistance, I was an informed and educated buyer, even though I was living in the Midwest.  When the perfect two-flat building came along, Jane coached us in a successful, competitive bid on the Victorian home of our dreams.  Jane is a most patient Realtor who never pushed us. Instead she presented information clearly and concisely, and provided insight and analysis that helped my partners and me understand our choices clearly and take action when we were ready.”


[If you] “want to have all the details explained and taken care of, and also have an enjoyable time, you should work with Jane “

“Jane is great! Here’s our story…We bought a Tenancy In Common (TIC) in 2007 with Jane as our agent. She has an encyclopedia-like understanding of all things real estate. Early on, we found a great one bedroom TIC at a good enough price. But we didn’t buy it! She saved us from a future nightmare by being the only professional to notice an issue that would prevent this unit from every qualifying for a loan on its own following condo conversion. We pulled our offer at the last minute. Phew!

Jane is the perfect combination of friendly, helpful, and hardworking. She’s very tough when she advocates for her clients, but does it in such a professional way that she’s gets the deal done.

We knew nothing about TIC’s when we started, but Jane gave us excellent advice; way above and beyond what you’d get with the average agent. She listens carefully and doesn’t waste your time on places that don’t fit your criteria or aren’t priced right.

We never would have got our incredible, Edwardian, 2 bedroom TIC with a remodeled kitchen and bath at an amazing price if it weren’t for Jane.

So, if you are serious about getting the best deal, want to have all the details explained and taken care of, and also have an enjoyable time, you should work with Jane as your agent.”


“[Jane] thinks strategically, and exhibits very sound judgment.”

“Jane is an outstanding Realtor who helped us purchase our first home.  She is incredibly intelligent, thinks strategically, and exhibits very sound judgment.  Jane’s past work experience as a principal at a management consulting firm, as well as her MBA from MIT’s Sloan School of Business, enabled her to guide us successfully through the purchase of our first home.

Jane’s consistent follow-up and market updates made her our natural choice when we decided to sell our home two years later.  Her suggestions for the pricing, staging and positioning of our home enabled us to successfully close on the sale in a challenging market environment.  Jane reflects the high standards of business and personal excellence to which we are expected to adhere every day.  It was a pleasure to work with her.”
