What Clients Say

“My wife and I were selling our house, but had no real clue how to go about it. Kristin helped us figure out things like how much repair and renovation to do, what time of year is best to list, lots of details we would never have thought of.

Most important of all, we had to leave San Francisco by a certain deadline, and Kristin offered to handle everything for us (from book donations, debris hauling, hardwood floor refinishing, painting, carpet installation and cleaning, to staging, photography, open houses  and closing) while we were away – she literally said to us ‘Your gonna give me the key and I will handle the rest’. She worked tirelessly on this for about 3 months, and when the renovation was done I swear – our house NEVER looked this good during the time we were there! Even with us being 3000 miles away, Kristin kept us totally updated on every step of the process, she is incredibly detail-oriented.

It is not only the panoramic views from the top of Bernal Hill, the eclectic mix of small businesses on Cortland Avenue or the diversity of the neighbors that makes Bernal Heights such a special place. It is also the tradition of progressive activism, artistic community and fierce independence that gives this neighborhood its spirit. I aim to reflect these neighborly qualities in the way I do business, says Kristin Hofso, broker-owner of Bernal Hill Realty.

Clients describe me as friendly, down to earth, experienced, knowledgeable, thorough, communicative, helpful and supportive.
