Linda S. Gordon Presents : 77 A Carmelita , San Francisco, CA from Lunghi Media Group on Vimeo.

What could be harder than selling a San Francisco home, during a pandemic, remotely from 1,700 miles away? I needed an expert, who would be both strong and compassionate in the sale of my home. That’s exactly what you get with Linda. She quickly got to know me, my needs, the challenges with my property, and then exquisitely managed the sale from beginning to end. Her project management skills and eye for detail are second-to-none, and her ability to orchestrate contractors, stagers, inspectors and, then, ultimately, brokers and prospective buyers was impressive. As I told my best friend, when all was said and done, “Linda’s sale price made me deliriously happy.” She could not have been more ethical, shrewd and trustworthy with me and all those who encountered her in preparing for and selling my place over a three-month period.”
