Take a Virtual Tour

Not all 3-D walk-throughs are created equal. As we all sheltered in place we realized we needed to step up our virtual tour game. We trained our photographer to capture every angle of the home from the outside in. In our tour you’ll not only see the outside of the home, and the garage, but also the inside of every cabinet and closet.

We want you to be able to see and experience the home as if you were there in person, without leaving the comfort and safety of your home. When you are ready we can set up a private, in-person COVID compliant tour with your agent or we can guide you through a detailed virtual tour.

About the Neighborhood

One of the few neighborhoods that survived the 1906 earthquake, Pacific Heights is home to beautiful Victorians, serene streets, and a host of shopping, dining, and entertainment activities. Fillmore St. is the main shopping hub, with high-end retail and consignment and curated boutiques. Polk St. and Hyde St. are packed with delicious eateries. Many families are drawn to Pacific Heights for its excellent schools, accessible public transportation, and close proximity to several parks; Lafayette Park and recently revitalized Alta Plaza Park isn’t far away with 360-degree views of the city, tennis courts, a playground and wide grassy lawn. Russian Hill, Marina, Nob Hill, and Polk Gulch are all within walking distance, the Muni makes a quick trip downtown, and Marin County and Sausalito are an easy drive away for weekend wine tasting or waterside oysters and bocce ball. Lower Pacific Heights offers home buyers a stylish, upscale-feeling neighborhood bolstered by an approachable, casual attitude. Within the confines of these blocks, you'll find Japantown, the oldest and largest such enclave in the United States. From the spectacle of the Peace Plaza pagoda to the grandeur of St. Dominic's Church, it really seems there's something here for everyone. This area is a shopper's delight, with bustling commercial centers along both Fillmore and Steiner streets. The Japan Center mall is a mecca for all things Japanese. When it comes time to eat, the possibilities are endless. Evenings see the streets fill with patrons looking to dine at one of many gastronomic destinations, or music fans lining up at the Boom Boom Room and the adjacent historic Fillmore Theater. Sundance Kabuki Cinema is a welcome addition to the neighborhood; as the largest independent theater in the city, the Kabuki screens first run features and plays host to a number of film festivals, attracting cinephiles from all over the Bay Area. The neighborhood is home to an interesting mix of classic Victorian homes and mid-rise condo developments. As throughout much of the city, you'll find wonderful diversity among your neighbors. You can get a picture of the sense of community that exists in this diverse pocket of the city each April during the Cherry Blossom Festival. Freeway access has been greatly improved in recent years thanks to the completion of the Octavia corridor freeway entrance, opening up the area to south and east bay commuters. If you'd like to dip your toes into the Northside life, Lower Pacific Heights is a great place to begin your search.

Holly Hirshfield & Alan Peterson

"Our initial consultation was one of the most memorable discussions we’ve had with someone in the business. She demonstrated through examples how creative, solutions-oriented and innovative her approach was; notably how her team adapted to the covid-19 environment through novel and personal marketing and attention to detail via virtual experiences. Other Realtors offered us a lower rate but we believe we got the quality and caliber we paid for."
N.O., Seller
"Ruth is a down-to-earth, friendly pit bull who represented us well and never let her guard down. She prepared us, protected us, and positioned us for what could not have been a more successful sale."
J.R., Seller
"In this very tough market, she got my family into a fantastic home. I was getting ready to walk away from the SF market altogether, because I just didn't think we could find what we wanted in a home at a price we could pay. Ruth is an absolute pro and helped us get the house we wanted. Ruth is a master real estate agent and the one you want in San Francisco."
H.H & A.P., Buyer
"In such a competitive market we needed an edge to get the home we wanted and we found that with Ruth and her team. She is down to earth, very personable and a master negotiator. She is honest, understanding, and not just out to make the sale."
R.M., Buyer
"Ruth was quick to assess our needs, the property needs, and the San Francisco market needs. She considered the property thoughtfully as she made recommendations for any renovations or work required. Her experience and knowledge as an interior designer is an asset. She creatively played with the space to increase its marketability and our home was beautifully displayed. We were pleased with the amount of offers and felt that Ruth's knowledge attributed to our success."
