We have owned our San Francisco loft for almost 14 years and have never considered on selling until this year. Our leasing agent put us in contact with David Ayerdi on September 15. He called us the same night the referral went out and after a 2 hour phone call were he answered all our questions, explain the process and talked about the San Francisco market we were impressed by his knowledge, transparency, and professionalism. We clicked! We still were not sure about selling and even though he never pushed us in the process and even recommended us to evaluate and think if we should keep our property, David immediately got to work just in case we decided to sell. He went to see the apartment and made a list of the things needed to get done in order to sell and suggested the listing price of our lovely loft. David took care of every single detail from buying, contracting, getting quotes, estimates, etc. to get the work done in a very efficient, professional and quick manner. We left the process in his hands. David was very realistic and upfront about our property. He evaluated the properties in the neighborhood and the properties coming onto the market soon and created a precise market study just for our loft to select the price that felt right for us to sell. He was right! Our loft went into contract in two days. We are amazed with all the work and transformation David did to the loft and the way he personally supervised and managed all the projects from the moment we talked for the first time to the moment we closed. I was very touched for the way he respected and acknowledged our feelings towards our property. We highly recommended David. His experience and knowledge are unbeatable. We are sure that no other agent would be able to do what David completed in less than two weeks with excellent results. David will always exceed your expectations. We are going to miss the daily calls and texts, but now we are sure we have a new friend and the best agent to help us find our next home. Thank You David!

Choosing David as my listing agent was the best decision I ever made. I was selling my SF inner mission loft, but I was physically in NY. He took care of everything from making sure my tenant transitioned out smoothly to cleaning and updating the place, to coordinating documents with the HOA, and all the little details in between. He's knowledgeable, professional, passionate, knows how to hustle, but never pushy. When we listed, the market was flooded with surplus inventory, so my property didn't get much traction. He recommended a price drop, which I resisted, but ultimately agreed to, trusting his judgement. In the end, that created more interest and resulted in multiple offers above our original ask!

When David was initially referred to me my first thought was do I really need to talk to another agent. At the end of our meeting, I was more than impressed with his presentation, knowledge and professionalism and knew he was the one my husband and I could entrust in selling our home of 21 years. We literally had about ten days to move so David could work his magic and get it on the market. Our situation was unusual in that both my husband and I would be out of the country in different parts of the world during this entire process.
We were overwhelmed with so many small and large details we didn't know where to begin. A person's organization skills are paramount in assuring a successful outcome in any endeavor. From arranging professionals to assist in estate sale, removing unwanted belongings to getting us packed and storing our belongings, dealing with last-minute technical issues David really came through. He has this unique ability to make a daunting experience seamless and by imparting his knowledge we were able to accomplish our strict timeline. All this while he handled the actual real estate process.
On August 2nd our home went live. It brought me to tears when I saw how stunningly David and his team had transformed our home. There was never a moment of disappointment and needless to say the final outcome was beyond impressive.
I must underscore that it takes a very dedicated, intelligent, personable and trusting person to establish a professional relationship where you know unconditionally this person is someone who will deliver. There were many last minute issues that arose and David went over and above the call of duty. No matter what the time or day, I could count on David to respond.
David Ayerdi epitomizes what it means to be a totally full-service Real Estate Agent and a Professional who defines the excellence required in a given field and should be considered Gold Standard. It's not just his knowledge but how he empowers you to embrace a process and succeed. There are many praises that I've left out; he is just that good. My husband and I really enjoyed working with him and learned a great deal. That's just another of his unique abilities, he educates you along the way. I would be more than happy to talk to anyone who is looking for a referral on David. There were no disappointments only one, that his work is done and we will miss him!

David Ayerdi is simply the very best in the field. He is professional, knowledgeable, responsible, friendly, and honest. With David in charge we had no worries. We had full confidence in him, and David delivered.
I have never seen an agent work as diligently and thoughtfully as David.
David Ayerdi is truly outstanding. He is the only one we will consider.

San Francisco's Real Estate Market is a daunting place to navigate through and David Ayerdi is the type of Agent you need by your side. While some gravitated to art or music at an early age, David started managing family Real Estate at a young age. He loves his work and it shows. His skills run the gamut from figuring out your needs and finding properties within your price range to negotiating advantageous results. My wife and I never thought we could afford to live in San Francisco. David proved otherwise. He helped us find and buy a beautiful home which was $73,000 below asking price.

Between 2017 and 2019, David helped me buy and sell two properties - four transactions. The last transaction was selling a property that was tenant occupied but one that I was able to get a full market price for. Amazing! I honestly have never met a real estate agent that is more "on point" than David. His attention to detail and ability to keep moving things forward makes him a definition of dedicated. Oh, one more thing. He helped the buyer sell two of their properties to get into mine. All of that within 45 days. Amazing!
David is truly one of the best real estate agents we have ever worked with. He handled the sale of our rental SOMA loft from beginning to end coordinating all aspects of the sale including working with the tenants, hands on management of all property improvements (he was onsite every day), working with the HOA, managing the stagers and eventually selling the condo in a timely and efficient manner. He is very knowledgeable about the SF market and exceeded our expectations. Extremely competent and trustworthy.

I can't recommend David Ayerdi enough! Selling our Potrero Hill condo was such a smooth process, which I absolutely attribute to David's local expertise, huge industry network, professionalism and generally awesome attitude and approach. I am a licensed CA Realtor and could have listed my own property, but decided to refer to a local SF expert. Wow am I glad i did! David knows the SF market inside and out, and made suggestions and gave thoughtful feedback that I would not have thought of. And the results speak for themselves. We received numerous offers well over asking within a week of listing.
Above and beyond being an excellent Realtor and market resource, David really tailored his approach to meet our unique needs. We had recently moved out of the area and were due with our first baby any day. He was happy to schedule and meet contractors, stagers, painters, and more at our property. He also managed our HOA requirements, did all showings himself, and even helped bring our previous tenants their mail! We only made one trip down (mainly to meet David!) the entire transaction. For this I am forever grateful!
I would work with David Ayerdi again in a heartbeat, and will refer all local family and friends to him without hesitation. Thank you, David!

I was lucky to work with David for a 1031 Exchange.
He was knowledgeable, responded well to my questions and concerns and was a good negotiator.
The house I had made an offer on had some deferred maintenance issues. I was quite concerned.
He quickly made a list and presented to seller in such a way that seemed reasonable and workable. The seller accepted and responded in a timely manner.
I was impressed.

It was a real pleasure working with David. From the very beginning of the process and throughout, he was always ready to coordinate the next steps and move things along. Even at the craziest moments, he was patient and responsive in answering every question I had along the way. Thanks, David!
David is a great agent to work with: Patient, supportive, accommodating our shifting wants... Now that the process of finding the perfect place has come to an end, I have to admit that we miss meeting with David! He is very kind, generous with his time and always professional, never pressuring. He knows the SF real estate market very well.
David went out of his way to make our new place inviting and perfect, by having several items repaired and even adding fresh paint where necessary. Thank you!

I met David by chance when I visited my first open house when I was still just toying with the idea of buying, and I am so glad I did! David was always both professional and personable. He made the condo search feel fun, even when I started to get exhausted or overwhelmed. David is clearly well informed, connected, and familiar with the San Francisco area, and I've already referred friends to him. I never felt like I was being "sold" or pushed, truly felt that David had my best interests at heart, and can see that he loves what he does. To top it all off, David went above and beyond in the final days before we closed to make my new home perfect. Thank you!!

David made buying a house in San Francisco enjoyable. Three words come to mind when I think of David and the real estate work that he does: Passion. Tenacity. Thoughtfulness. A true professional in every way, he'll help you find that special place that you're looking for here in San Francisco.
Super fast painless transaction even here in San Francisco! We loved working with David and would recommend his services to anyone.

After living in my SF condo for a few years, I moved to LA and rented it out. Twelve years later I was ready to sell. I had a great location and a good size place but the unit had devolved into 'rental' quality because I hadn't updated anything. I wanted an agent that could just come in, take care of everything for me, get it into the best shape it could get in and sell it. I, basically, wanted to be an absentee seller. I met David through another agent and I'm so glad I did. He helped me maneuver how to deal with my tenants so that we could sell it vacant, he liaised with the HOA (no easy feat) and directed a large team of vendors to get the home repaired, garden refreshed, things painted and spruced up and staged. He engaged in a very aggressive off-market effort in advance of the MLS that included mailing and digital advertising. I received 11 offers in a slowing market and the final price was well beyond even my highest expectations. The buyer had seen the property during the off-market strategy, showing that the extra effort paid off. In the end, I was able to be an absentee seller and get an amazing price for my place; I highly recommend David and his team.

As first time homebuyers, the process can be overwhelming and intimidating. We were lucky enough to find David who was an amazing guide throughout the experience - giving us confidence that we had another (more experienced) set of eyes watching out for our best interest. He was thorough, smart, diligent, and always available. Would highly recommend David to any San Francisco homebuyer!
David was an absolutely wonderful resource and guide throughout our home-buying experience. We came into the process with very little knowledge about TICs, home loans, inspections, and the rest -- David demystified everything, shared the resources we needed, and ensured that we asked the right questions at the right times. He was also a fantastic advocate for us during the contingency process, working closely with the seller's agent to ensure that our needs were met. He was available at all hours and worked late into the night to keep our home purchase moving forward. We are tremendously grateful for his experience, enthusiasm, competence, and positive energy. We really couldn't have asked for a better broker. Thank you, David!

I met David at an open house. Two weeks later, David showed me the condo I ended up buying. There were some issues that came up during the closing process, but thankfully, it all worked out. David is very responsive at all hours and always upbeat. Even after closing, David has been very responsive.
I met David at an open house. Two months later, I was purchasing a property. We ran into some issues during the process, but David was very communicative and helpful. Even after closing, David has been quick to respond to questions and things that come up. David is always friendly and upbeat.
David went above and beyond to make our sale process as efficient and seamless as possible. He handled every detail with finesse. I would recommend David to anyone looking to put their property on the market in the SF Area! Thank you, David!!!

David took on a tough situation as my building had a range of items to address and he also had to coordinate with 3 different tenants. As the tenants had restricted times in which they could let him show the building, he worked schedules around them and still got quality buyers in. I lived abroad so david had to handle yard cleanup, removal of my things from storage, coordination with my parents, and more. He worked incredibly hard and took calls at any time of day or night, giving me regular updates. My job is incredibly busy and he handled all communications with tenants and let me know when I had to get involved and when not. I'm pleased with the sale even if I miss owning a piece of San Francisco.
I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH to describe what a great job David did helping me find two terrific properties. From start to finish, he was responsive, energetic and his follow through was nothing shorty of exemplary. You don't just get an agent with David, you get a SF native that has been working in real estate since being a teenager. He knows the neighborhoods, he knows the players, he knows HOW TO GET THE DEAL DONE. Oh and everyone likes David. What more could you ask for?
The longer story is that I have owned a number of properties in San Francisco and thus know a handful of agents. I called on three of them to help me find a property in a very short period of time. David was on it from the very beginning. He said, "we can do this, but you've got to be ready and fully on board and committed because it's a crazy market!" I knew it was crazy and I also knew that I needed a committed agent. The others I contacted? They set me up with an automated search. Even my agent from two years ago that I sold a building with was M.I.A. No followup, nada. David and I talked everyday and we landed two great properties. What's more, he helped me rent them! I was out-of-town, and he helped show the units when I wasn't there. We had them rented before the property closed and the closing was 21 days. Amazing. David's great. You won't regret going with him either as a Buyer or a Seller. Go David!

Currently I oversee the global field for the number one prestige skincare company in the U.S. and am on the go 24/7. Because of that I needed someone who was smart, efficient and could handle owning the process from start to finish. Not a small request. That said David is all of them and more. Not only does he handle the process and guide/coordinate all of the people and the paperwork but he is dogged in his pursuit of properties both on and off market. The most amazing thing about David is that he is very clear that customer service is the most important aspect of his role. His combined work ethic and speed of a cheetah response /information gathering is balanced with his elegant gracious manner and kindness.
After 30 years of working in large consumer focused companies I can say without hesitation he truly emulates what we would all hope for in a customer facing executive!
