When we began the process of looking for our first home we felt rather lost. Thank goodness for Liz! She became not only our real estate agent, but also our cheerleader and counselor through the home-buying process. From helping us understand the market to advocating for us when it came time to negotiate on an offer, Liz was infinitely patient, proactive, and knowledgeable. We feel fortunate to not only have found our dream home, but to also have gained a friend in Liz!
– Audrey and Mike M., Buyer
Liz worked with us through a very difficult market during the pandemic. Her attention to detail and professionalism helped us sell our SOMA loft under challenging circumstances. Throughout, Liz was diligent with the marketing and was able to show prospective buyers despite all the restrictions imposed upon physical meeting. If Liz can succeed during such trying times, she’s going to be successful anytime. It was a real pleasure getting to know and work with her.
– Dave & Cathy S., Seller
Liz represented us in the sale of our Marina condo in 2020. Given COVID and the dramatic turn to a “buyer’s market” in San Francisco, we couldn’t imagine having another realtor at our side. She understands the San Francisco market, is incredibly thorough in market analysis, disclosures and process, and is well-respected among other agents. Our sale process was an unexpectedly bumpy one, so we really appreciated having Liz’s real estate experience, legal background and calm, rational demeanor alongside us.
– Bob and Jodi M., Seller
I was lucky to be referred to Liz to sell my condo in the Dogpatch. From the get-go she was responsive, thorough, straight forward, and knowledgeable. Liz was immensely helpful with getting the property ready for sale, especially given the fact that I was living elsewhere. She handled everything from moving furniture to better “stage” the property, de-cluttering the rooms, to watering the plants. I received an all cash offer and we closed in 7 days – all this during a pandemic! Liz was a true professional and I would highly recommend her for your real estate needs.
– Adam P., Seller
We absolutely loved working with Liz. After four years of house-hunting with different agents, we were referred to Liz, who was able to help us purchase our first home–the house of our dreams–within two months. Liz was incredibly supportive, thoughtful, and devoted to helping us achieve our goals. She has expertly and patiently guided us through this difficult process, even going so far as to support us (and answer our unrelenting questions) long after we moved into our new home. In short, Liz is a miracle worker. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
– Missy and Ben M., JDs, Buye
“I have known Liz Branham (as a friend and business partner) for more than 25 years, and when it came time to buy our home, I knew exactly who would represent my wife and me best. Liz is smart, hard-working and incredibly reliable. She knows San Francisco, and she understands the market. She took time to learn our “wants” and “needs,” and even though the market was really tight, she found the right house for us and guided us through the transaction with ease. We highly recommend her.” – Michael, J.D., Buyer
Liz was absolutely fantastic to work with. She was diligent about finding homes in our price range and preferred neighborhoods, but also opened our eyes to other neighborhoods and options that we never knew about. Liz also helped us find creative financing options that significantly increased our purchasing power. Most importantly, Liz is warm, responsive, and patient – which are all key attributes when dealing with first-time home buyers! – Marie and Todd H, Buyer
Liz is a total pro. Combining expertise and market savvy, Liz (and her team) executed the sale of our Cow Hollow condo flawlessly, which resulted in 9% over list price sale, a very favorable price per square foot, and just 8 days on the market. We highly recommend her! – – Sara and Steve B., Seller
“So many wonderful things to say about Liz Branham as a person and a professional. She has helped my husband and I buy and sell 3 houses in San Francisco (Marina, Ashbury Heights & West Portal). She prides herself on market knowledge, hard work, attention to detail, and client support. Based on my experience, she excels in these areas and others. I believe what sets her apart from other agents is that people really like her as a person and are able to easily develop a bond with her that allows you to trust her advice and insight and know that she has your back and best interest throughout the whole process.“ —Jeremy, J.D., Buyer and Seller
“I heartily recommend Liz Branham for any of your San Francisco residential brokerage needs. We relied heavily upon her to market and sell our daughter’s condominium in Cow Hollow this past month. Since we are out of town, Liz handled every detail including arranging for cosmetic upgrades, staging, and all the inspections. She carefully guided us through the disclosure process and dealt with the home owners association requirements. She dutifully attended open houses and pursued all possible sales opportunities. She handled all the negotiations with a sophisticated buyer, some of which were delicate, and both sides are pleased with the result. Liz’ legal background is a real asset and is evident in her attention to detail. Even more important, she knows how to market and sell. As someone who ran a very large, global professional services organization for many years, I judge Liz to be a real pro at what she does. We would hire her again in a New York minute.“ —Nick M., Seller
“Thorough, enjoyable and dedicated are a few words that best describe Liz Branham. She is an excellent real estate agent and I highly recommend her. She knows the market well and walked me through every step of the way when I purchased my first home in San Francisco. I never worried about the details – Liz handled everything with grace and intelligence. I would not have been able to accomplish a successful home search/purchase, if it had not been for Liz’s superior work ethic, decisiveness, and genuine commitment to customer service. Thank you Liz – I absolutely LOVE my new home!!” —Courtney J, Buyer
Liz represented us on both our new home purchase and the sale of our existing condo. On the home purchase, Liz was very thorough in identifying potential purchase opportunities that fit our strict criteria. And, through her contacts in the brokerage industry, she was able to regularly present us with some limited or off-market opportunities that we certainly would not have seen on our own. Ultimately, she help us identify an opportunity with a lot of upside and then assisted us in securing a really fantastic single family home at 10% below asking. It was a wonderful value. On the sale side, we were selling a really great condo in Pacific Heights. However, the property presented some marketing challenges that Liz was able to strategically overcome. We were really pleased with how she thoroughly demonstrated her condo market knowledge. Liz handled the listing with extreme professionalism and her attention to detail was fantastic throughout
the process. Plus, as an added bonus, Liz previously practiced real estate law priorto transitioning into brokerage. So, as a result, she was also very helpful from a legal and documentation perspective. We couldn’t have been happier with her performance on both transactions.” —Dave and Caroline, Buyer and Seller
“We really appreciate everything you have done to guide us through this whole experience of buying our first home. You somehow managed to put us at ease and were always there to answer our questions or track down whatever we needed. You are a good agent, and, more importantly, a good friend.” —Geoff, Buyer
“Liz was great at understanding our needs and requirements when looking for a house. We thought she was very helpful in giving her objective point of view, pointing out both the positive and negative aspects of the individual houses. As an expert with many years of experience, she provided us with the trusted opinion that
we needed in the process. She made us feel comfortable and we love our house!” – Stephanie and Holger, Buyer
“Liz listened to my needs and got excellent results. I have used her both to buy and sell property in San Francisco and have been extremely satisfied. She made me feel comfortable throughout the process. I am happy that we have also retained our friendship over the years and I plan to use her in the future!” —Kathy, Buyer and Seller
Working with Liz Branham is like working with your best friend — if you best friend possesses a law degree, a thorough understanding of the San Francisco real estate market, fine-tuned organizational skills, and the ability to negotiate a deal that saves you hundreds of thousands of dollars. In a city with thousands of brokers, Liz stands out as one of the most honest, intelligent, tenacious, and dedicated of all. Buying property with Liz was a pleasure from start to finish.” —Kendra R., Buyer
“Liz was awesome to work with throughout the entire process of selling our condo in Potrero Hill. After our initial meeting, Liz took the time to lay out a detailed game plan and timelines for when each part of the sales process would take place from inspections, touch ups, repairs, staging, listings, showings and offer dates. She clearly outlined all the responsibilities that she would personally take on to make it as seamless as possible for us as the sellers. She effectively executed on everything she outlined including the receipt of offers and going into escrow exactly on the date she had forecasted. Pretty amazing. As you’ll see in a lot of the other testimonials, Liz is not only an excellent and qualified agent, but also a trustworthy and caring friend. That meant a lot to us. Plus, she sold our condo for 17% over asking price which was nice added bonus!” —Lance K., Seller
I had the pleasure of working with Liz in 2007 when I bought my first condo in San Francisco. Fast forward to 9 years later and she was my go to when I decided to sell. She did an amazing job of holding my hand through my first purchase and my first sale. During my purchase, she was very patient and took the time to explain every step so the process did not seem so intimidating. While I already knew what a great agent she was, I have a whole new respect for her after having her handle the sale of my condo. In this crazy market, she moved fast and was unbelievably organized every step of the way. She made the whole process as easy and painless as possible. We closed 30 days after it went on the market and it wouldn’t have happened so quickly if it wasn’t for Liz. If you are looking for someone to handle the sale of your home or need someone to help you find your dream home, I highly recommend Liz.” —Tracey O., Buyer
“I had the pleasure of working with Liz and it was a blast. She is very knowledgeable and understands the complexities of the San Francisco Bay Area real estate market. Being a trained attorney, she has a grasp on the legal aspects of real estate. Liz is patient with her clients and makes sure they are informed throughout the process. She answers questions promptly and is a fierce negotiator. It is a pleasure knowing her and working with her.” – Zied, Lender
“Liz Branham is a fantastic real estate professional. I worked with her on the sale of my Pacific Heights condo, and from our initial meeting through sale completion, Liz was unfailingly upbeat and thorough, and extremely knowledgeable about the pre-sale prep and disclosure process (a benefit of her legal training). Her marketing expertise resulted in a large number of potential buyers touring the property, and she went the “extra mile” on a wide range of logistics even after the sale closed. Moreover, the buyers of my condo praised her too, finding her “absolutely great, well-informed, always smiling and super-helpful in facilitating everything. Thank you, Liz, for an incredible result.” —Susan M. Buyer and Seller
“We had the pleasure of working with Liz to buy our first condo after she was recommended by a friend. Liz was thorough, dedicated, resourceful and trustworthy. She helped us navigate the complex process of buying and her certification as a lawyer came in handy when we talked contracts and risks. She constantly went the
extra mile for us, worked hand in hand with our loan agent and the seller’s agent. We would recommend hiring Liz without hesitation.” —Max and Nicole, Buyer and Seller
“I tasked Liz with finding the impossible — a 4 bedroom house in the perfect neighborhood at the perfect price — and I gave her 45 days to do it as the transaction was a 1031 exchange. True to form, Liz exceeded expectations finding the perfect house in one day. She negotiated a sale price $100,000 under asking and managed a complicated tax exchange with an out-of-state property seamlessly. Liz treated the purchase of the home as if it was her own. Exceptionally thorough, smart, and organized, Liz made me feel like her top priority at every turn. I cannot imagine how this transaction could have gone any better. I will never use any other broker.” – Clare L, Buyer
“Liz navigated us through the process of buying our first home and we cannot recommend her enough – she was patient, informative, and gave us the space to decide on what was right for us rather than trying to “sell” us on anything, even though the process spanned years. She used her connections to ensure our offer was accepted in a truly challenging market and even ran interference with the lender when we needed it. As an added bonus, she’s a genuine, fun person who you will enjoy spending time with.” – Maya O., Buyer and Seller
“Liz guided us through buying our first home in San Francisco. She was incredibly responsive and helpful at each stage, resulting in a seamless buying experience. Thank you for everything you’ve done to help, guide and support us. This really is a dream come true!” – Sian and Jason, Buyer
“We would like to express our gratitude to you for your invaluable assistance in culminating the sale of Comstock #607. It has been a distinct pleasure to work with you during these past months! We have immensely appreciated your good judgment, optimism and efficiency throughout.” – Carol and Jose, Seller
