Before and After: Single-Family Home Transformation

Single-Family Home Transformation in Noe Valley: 267 Duncan Street

First impressions are so important. Our understanding of what home buyers want and how to use the space is what gets our sellers the highest possible sale price.

In this home we improved the lighting, refinished floors making them consistent throughout, transformed the detached studio into a beautiful office and optimized the layout with intelligent staging. All these improvements cost less than you might think!

From the Seller

“Ruth exceeded all our expectations. Our house sold for more than we expected and within a matter of days, with multiple offers. The whole experience was very easy – we just moved out, handed over the keys and Ruth and her team took care of everything.

We took Ruth’s recommendations to make improvements to our home prior to listing, which Ruth project managed using her own contractors. The work was done on time and under budget, with great results. The house looked better than at any time during the 20 years we lived in it!

Throughout the entire process communication was great and always prompt, so we felt well cared for. This was despite much of the work being done at the tail end of the pandemic.

Ruth really knows the market and was spot on with her strategy to sell our house for the best possible price. We highly recommend her!”
– S.L., Seller, 267 Duncan St.


I could not do all of this with out my incredible team. Every listing we sell has a full time project manager so our vendors can be carefully managed and our vision properly implemented. We have a vetted list of vendors that do projects on time and on budget with very careful oversight. Our sellers just hand over the keys, sit back and wait for the proceeds to hit their bank account.

It’s easy to think that properties sell themselves but stories like these show that thoughtful property preparation, correct pricing and solid marketing make a huge difference in the final outcome.

There is no one size fits all approach. Having an experienced agent who not only understands what buyers want but also has a background in design is critical to helping sellers get the highest possible price for their homes.

We’d love the opportunity to help you (or someone you know) sell your home for top dollar. Thinking of selling (or buying)? It’s never too early to consult a Realtor for strategies. Email or call us at 415-735-5867 for a no-obligation consultation. And check out more of our before and afters.
