As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Haruko twice in the past five years. She helped me find my dream condo in Duboce Triangle in 2010, and this year she helped me to find my first investment property in the Financial District. When I first sought to find a place for myself, my mortgage broker recommended Haruko. When I met her, she immediately put me at ease. She explained clearly all the steps that would be required in the process, common pitfalls, how to read through disclosures, and how do handle the offer process. Buying a home truly is a maddening amount of information to sift through and risk to assess, and Haruko cut through it all with deft precision. She helped me narrow down my search and took care of all the scheduling, saving me a tremendous amount of time. In no time at all, we found the perfect place, made the right offer, and everything fell into place. So I turned to Haruko again this year when I wanted to purchase an investment property. She had sage advice about"
"Our experience with Haruko Hata was terrific. She helped us to prepare ahead of time in order to be successful in purchasing the kind of condo we were looking for as an investment. With her help, we got our finances in order, we became more clear about our priorities, and therefore we were able to make a fast decision and made the “winning” offer for the property we really wanted. In our experience -- What we found is if you really listen, learn from and follow what your agent, Haruko Hata, tells you is best for you to do, you can do really well in real estate."

"Thanks to Haruko we found the perfect condo for us! When we first started to work with Haruko, we had no knowledge of real estate, but Haruko took the time to educate us about all aspects of the process so we could feel really good about our decision. As we started exploring different properties, she was very flexible and patient with us, coming to many open houses and learning what we needed in a home as well as giving us the information to help guide our search. Buying a first home in San Francisco that met our budget and desires took a lot of searching, and she never rushed us. After a year of searching, and after taking a several month break, we suddenly found the place we really loved! Haruko sprung into action immediately, always answering our questions quickly, even late in the evening. She was very organized and responsible. Thanks to her help, we were able to make an offer within a week, and thanks to her advice on how to make our offer attractive, we were able to win the bid"
