Focused on representing home buyers and sellers here in the neighborhood

Our Neighborhood

“Bernal Heights sends out a message of communal warmth and inclusion” wrote The New York Times in 2016.

“Kristin Hofso, an owner of Bernal Hill Realty in Bernal Heights, acknowledged that the community has grown more affluent, with the average price of a single-family house rising from $800,000 in 2012 to just under $1.4 million this year. ‘But it’s remained progressive, racially diverse, with some vibrant artists and many independent businesses,’ she said. In her experience, newcomers seek out those aspects before any particular property. ‘I’ve sold real estate here for 25 years,’ she said, ‘and almost all the buyers who come to us say, ‘We want to live in Bernal’.”

December 2022 update: In the years since this article was written values have continued to  increase, albeit modulated by interest rates, to a current median sales price of $1.7 million.

Clients Say

“I am so pleased we chose Kristin to sell our family home. She originally sold the house to our parents over 20 years ago, but even besides that long-term connection, we knew she is super knowledgeable about the housing market, particularly the nuances of Bernal Heights.”
