I had been contemplating putting our loft in SOMA on the market for a while. It was the right time but a daunting task so always put it off. Realtors' marketing materials were constantly in the mail but Jamie's stood out. That's because she knows her trade and it worked on me. My wife and I met with her and at the get-go we knew we found our realtor. Right away we got started. We decided not to stage and Jamie immediately made suggestions on how to maximize our open house and all of her rec's made sense. Before we knew it, our loft was on the market. Jamie displayed expertise throughout the process and we received a good number of offers after the first showing. That's all it took. We accepted one and the transaction couldn't have gone smoother. Meanwhile, the search was on for the next home. While Jamie was working on selling our loft, she was able to guide us on the buy side with as much attention and focus she had on selling. After looking at a good number of properties, we put in our first offer as we were closing on the loft. Jamie handled both sides of it with ease and grace.
I would recommend Jamie to anyone on the market who is buying, selling, or both. Her thoughtfulness in how she approaches her business is what I can only hope others in her field offer their clients. I'm not sure when I'll need a realtor in the near future but I do know who I'm going to when that time comes. In the meantime, if you need one, please do reach out to Jamie. She will deliver on your highest expectations.

The San Francisco real estate market is crazy and difficult and there aren't enough superlatives for how awesome and unbelievable Jamie Comer is! When I think about what she was able to do for us, it still blows my mind. (1) We weren't totally sure we wanted to move even though we'd outgrown our home; (2) we didn't want to stage and weren't thrilled to have open houses; and (3) our condo was going through litigation making lending difficult. Jamie helped us edit our furnishings and found storage for us and sent over loaner furniture as well, got the place cleaned and showed it while we were on vacation producing a record breaking sale for the building. She negotiated a rent back so we could look for a new place without having to leave ours. Then---in a super competitive buyers market---she found us the perfect home in the perfect location OFF MARKET so we did not have to compete for it and we got a great deal on it. We talk about real estate all the time, Jamie always knows what's going on in the local and national scene, she is uncommonly well informed and strategic and savvy. I would never use anyone else, I see her less as a real estate agent and more as a partner in my families long term wealth building strategy. Our children sing songs to her GREATNESS!

Jamie is been nothing but exceptional to my wife and I for two separate home purchases. She got us into our first house a few years ago when we were almost scared out of the SF housing market. And then did it again last month for our new family home! She's everything you want in a real estate agent ... Always on, connected, honest, and has the grit to push through where other agents don't. We can't recommend her enough. If you are buying or selling, call Jamie.

After working with Jamie 5 years ago to buy my home in the Maxwell Park area of Oakland, the time had come to move to a new home for a new stage of life. I immediately thought of no one else except Jamie to help me sell my home. This was my real estate 4th transaction with Jamie. She once again came across the Bay to assist me in every aspect of selling my home.
She was able to connect with her wide network of home professionals to get my house ready for sale. Within 10 days we were able to get the interior of the house painted, the exterior power washed, and the home staged and ready to go on the market.
Using her in-depth knowledge of the housing market and her marketing savvy, Jamie coached me to set a selling price that would peak interest and attract as many buyers as possible. Jamie held two, very popular, open houses where she was able to engage with the potential buyers and manage their expectations for the Oakland housing market. Her strategy paid off and we had over 30 sets of potential buyers view the home.
Through her hard work in presenting the home in its best light and the ability to engage with potentials buyers, we received 9 offers on the home - all over the original list price. The offer we finally accepted greatly exceeded my expectations and was close to 30% over the list price.
Once the offer was accepted, Jamie continued to guide and support me through the escrow and closing process. The transaction was able to close in 10 days with no significant issues.
Oh, and did I mention that Jamie has the best upbeat and positive attitude in everything she does and always has a smile on her face. She has a real passion for real estate and ability to exceed her clients expectations. I dare say, she makes real estate fun.

Jamie did a tremendous job selling my wife's and my condo in San Francisco during a time when the market was softening due to increased inventory. She crafted a detailed plan to renovate our unit to be competitive with the newer units on the market, and she coordinated with a dozen different vendors to completely transform our condo in two weeks. Then she was able to solicit significant interest from prospective buyers by pricing the unit effectively and providing top notch marketing. We received three competitive offers and were able to sell for 13% over ask with an offer that contained a single contingency (which she was able to get removed on the 3rd day of escrow, helping us to make offer on our new house in Huntington Beach). The entire process - including renovations, listing, open houses, taking offers, and escrow took only 9 weeks. Jamie is sharp, creative, diligent, detail-oriented, and has a great flare for interior design. She is an absolute expert on the condo market. I highly recommended Jamie's services to anyone looking to sell in SF!

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 received Jamie's name from my LA agent and am so glad I did. She helped me maneuver how to deal with my tenants so that we could sell it vacant, she 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. She 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 her 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 Jamie and her team.

Jamie recently sold my loft in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood and did a stellar job of it. Jamie worked incredibly hard to understand the property, the neighborhood, and my wants/needs. She's a canny marketer and consistently tracked market trends to ensure the approach taken with my unit was effective and on point. She also went the extra mile by establishing goodwill with my neighbors to ease potential discomfort with the Open House process. Jamie is smart, trustworthy, and immaculately professional. I'm so glad she handled my sale; if I buy property in San Francisco again, she will be my representative. I highly recommend her.

Your search stops here -- Jamie is an incredible, passionate, and multi-talented agent that will exceed your expectations like she exceeded ours!
We were desperately in search of a real estate agent after finding a house we loved, and realizing that our prior agent had most likely retired. Through referral, we came to know Jamie.
Jamie ended up helping us with our home buying process and guiding us to successfully land our dream house. Along the way, she provided excellent reads on the market, and worked with us collaboratively to come up with a great bid. Never did she push us into an uncomfortable spot; in fact, she even helped reel us in when we might have been overbidding! This help is invaluable especially in a market like SF.
Jamie then proved she was equally if not even more capable as a sellers' agent. This is where her network really came into play. She got us contact with a top-notch crew of stagers, handy-people, and vendors to ensure our house was in top-notch shape without breaking the bank. I believe every dollar spent yielded rewards in the end. Likewise, she helped us navigate multiple bids to arrive at a very satisfactory selling price.
As if that were not enough, she went even further. As we moved into our new home, she pulled on her 10 years of design experience to provide a vision for remodeling, down to the meticulous detail required of SF designers -- trends in tile, kitchen, bath, and the best local vendors. She took us on multiple vendor tours at the SF Design District and gave us multiple face-to-face design consultations -- all simply as part of her process in helping us create our best possible next home!
We cannot recommend Jamie highly enough -- six stars but please make sure she's available if and when we need her again!
– Mike W.
Jamie is an excellent Real Estate Agent and we highly recommend her. We used her to sell our condo in San Francisco which she sold in less than a week. There were many issues with the buyer's lender that she handled promptly and professionally. Her communication skills are excellent and she kept us in the loop the entire time. I think the deal would have fallen apart with any other Agent, but she put in the extra effort and creative thinking required to ensure that the deal closed and we got what we wanted. We would definitely use her services again and cannot recommend her highly enough.
– City L.
Jamie Comer is such a exceptional human being. She is one of kind, highly intelligent and great at what she does in the real estate field. Aside from being meticulous, she has a great sense of interior design, works incredibly hard and is unwittingly charming.
I highly advise her vast knowledge of the real estate field and will absolutely refer her to colleagues.
– Lu P.
My wife and I love Jamie! She found our first purchase in SF in 2008, and we had the opportunity to work together again 9 years later! She is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and is passionate about her clients. We always feel comfortable raising concerns with her, knowing that she will give us objective opinions/options that help us forward through the buying/selling process.
– Jay K
Jamie was seemingly tireless in communicating with us at times emailing us late at night and early the next morning. Jamie's negotiating skills were unconventional and creative, often uncovering an option that no one was thinking of but ultimately being beneficial to both the seller and the buyer. As a result, the deals went through quickly and with everyone being happy. Jamie's knowledge of the local market was spot on--resulting in a quick sale (4 days) and a rapid purchase (1 week). Jamie was professional, courteous, and patient often helping us to focus on what we initially agreed was important. I would not hesitate in highly recommending Jamie to friends and family.
– R. Shim
Jamie is personable, hardworking, and knowledgeable about the local real estate market. She is very dedicated to her clients and has great follow through on issues that arise during the purchase process. Jamie comes highly recommended!
– S. Curran
Friendliness, energy, communication style, punctuality, hand holding/ making us feel comfortable, going to bat for us, negotiation skills, design tips, referrals to third party service providers, interested in staying in touch after the sale and following us through settling in and renovations. We're very pleased.
Jamie has been a pleasure to work with. She was flexible with our changing circumstances through the (long) process of our search. She brought lots of knowledge and 'extras' to the table, researching various scenarios, such as rentals, as we considered them. I would and will recommend her to anyone looking for a place in SF.
– K. Salusso
She was very organized, clear and concise in her communication. She understood the reality of the market and the property. She fully understood my needs and restrictions and worked within my needed framework. She really followed up with the tenant to ensure there were no discrepancies or misunderstandings.
– N. Angah
Jamie marketed our home very well; from helping us stage the property, to taking quality photos and creating a very impressive brochure. After our home was in contract Jamie provided additional touches to help us through the transition including sending a house cleaner, and helping us facilitate the sale of some of our current furniture to the buyer of our home.
– Danae Cranley
Jamie's knowledge of the Metropolitan was invaluable, since she has resident's knowledge of the building and applied it to give me an advantage for the transaction. She was always professional and prompt, and was willing to go an extra mile during the closing process, when surprise after surprise popped up. I'd definitely recommend her.
– Andre Pang
Jamie has great knowledge of the San Francisco market. She listens, pays great attention to detail and truly understands what her clients are looking for. She is an astute negotiator and well versed in the art of getting the best deals possible for her clients. She's highly recommended!
– Vera Rodkewich
Jamie is so professional in her communication and follow-through with buyers and sellers alike. Her enthusiasm is contagious in a flat market. She finds reasons WHY things can work well instead of reasons why it won't. Her positive nature helps any transaction.
– Rebecca Young
I had the tremendous pleasure of working with Jamie Comer during my quest to find my first home in San Francisco. I consider myself to be as particular of a buyer as they come which meant that I needed to find an agent who was willing to work with that. Although the search took us 2.5 years I finally was to find the home that I wanted, all of which would NOT have been possible without Jamie's assistance. She is ardently dedicated to a high level of success and achievement in both her career and personal life. She knows how to cover all aspects related to building a successful relationship-both for the client and for the firm that she represents. She is detail oriented, trustworthy, always available, and constantly goes above and beyond. During the negotiations process she was the consummate client advocate-pushing hard for what was important and not sweating the small stuff. After I got the keys to my new home she even offered her time to assist me with my remodel! How many agents would do that? I would highly recommend Jamie Comer to any buyer or seller.
– Borja Cuan
Jamie was thorough and pro-active. She helped us buy a beautiful apartment in a desirable neighborhood at a great price. Plus, thanks to her quick thinking and close involvement, we were able to scoop up the only (and much coveted) private parking garage in the building.
– Cynthia Robinson
Thank you for not just being my exceptional real estate agent, but for also being my design expert, coach, body guard and caring friend! Look forward to the next purchase!
– Sarah Hammond
Jamie knows the market extremely well and was extremely helpful in finding the right home and putting together a winning offer. In the end, my offer got accepted for less than a competing one.
– Michael Han
Jamie strikes the perfect balance between strategy development and execution. Her center of focus clearly is on her clients; she creates a positive client experience, serves as a trusted advisor, and always works in her clients' best interests. Jamie maintains an upbeat, positive attitude and works at a pace one step ahead. Quite simply stated, Jamie not only will get it done, but get it done right.
– Michael Hammett
I've worked with Jaime twice - once in 2006 (buying) and recently in 2012 for selling the very same property.
Jamie's can-do attitude coupled with deep knowledge of the inner workings of purchasing real estate in SF helped me win a competitive bidding to purchase 233 Page Street in San Francisco in 2006. Listening and following all her advice was all I needed to do. Jamie also gave me an advantage simply by submitting the offer in-person to the seller's agent. I really think that made such a difference because Jamie's interface skill with people is a distinct advantage.
Because of this experience, I did not hesitate to call her six years later to sell the very same property. I knew that the same go-go attitude and drive she exhibited when buying will also apply in selling. I came a little late into the market (May). She advised us to sell within a narrow timeframe (before Memorial Day) because she said that historically, records show the 2nd quarter of the year gives sellers the best price. She advised us to show two weeks before the holiday to maximize audience during open house. This left us with only two weeks to prepare the house for sale.
She came up with a game plan, corralled all the contractors, and took care of every logistical detail in order to get our property ready for prime time. It's pretty amazing how you can repair and transform the house in just two weeks! Jamie also worked within our budget, which was very important to me.
Within a short time, we received multiple offers resulting in closing over the asking price. I came away having a positive experience during selling. Jamie gave us very valuable advice in order to protect our price (i.e. making sure the buyer's inspection does not result in lower offer). She helped us foresee potential minefields so that we avoid them in the first place.
I highly recommend Jamie Comer, so much so that I am in fact, planning to ask for her help again to purchase a SF property next year! Please do not hesitate to ask me if you have any questions.

Wow! It's hard to know where to begin, since every aspect of knowing and working with Jamie has been outstanding. We just closed on our first home purchase in San Francisco, an 18-month process, and Jamie has been with us every step of the way.
The real estate market in SF is crazy at the moment - no inventory, hungry buyers and deep, deep pockets. We had to fight 20 offers to win our home and I can honestly say there is no way that we would have been able to do it without Jamie. She is honest, open, supportive and, most importantly, has extensive experience and understanding of both the SF real estate market and the people that work within it. There were many occasions when we would arrive at an open house, accompanied by Jamie, and she would be warmly greeted by the seller's realtor.
Her eye is astonishing. She would point out details, positive and negative, on our walkthroughs that we would never have spotted. When we got advice from Jamie we could tell it was honest and frank, and we never felt pressured or that we were being 'sold' a home.
Did I mention it was an 18-month process? We've been looking for almost 2 years for the right home, and have been 'in the game' for 18 months. Jamie was with us the whole time. There is no way that the fees she received could have compensated the time that she put in with us, but it didn't seem to matter. The feeling we got was that she was there to help us no matter what.
And now that we've closed and are preparing to move, when other realtors might say thanks and goodbye, she continues to help and support us. Over the years she has assembled a team of trusted vendors and contractors and has helped us with flooring, plumbers, electricians, you name it. Every one has been reasonably priced and very professional (our refinished hardwood floors look amazing!).
Thanks Jamie! I cannot recommend you highly enough.
– Jon Williams
Jamie was the selling agent of a condo I saw during my search for a place. We immediately hit it off and I was impressed by her knowledge of the SF market, historical trends and future projections, especially with regard to condos.
She helped guide me through the search process, delivering thoughtful opinions on the places we saw together and whether each one was worth the price. She definitely listens to you and your wants, needs, and concerns and adjusts her strategy appropriately. Once we finally located the condo I wanted, she was instrumental helping me do a 15-day closing which helped clinch the deal.
I can highly recommend Jamie as your agent and a friend in general.
– Andrei Z.
I met Jamie when looking for my second live/work investment in SOMA.
My immediate impression of her, is that Jamie is a real person. I've come across of plenty of the phony sleazy car sales man type of real estate agents (and turned them down) who will tell you anything, and tell you anything you want to hear to make a deal and make their commission. Jamie doesn't have that vibe at all; and listens carefully to what you're really want.
I'm an Art Director at heart, and thus pretty picky and do my homework thoroughly. Jamie had the patience to put up with my patience and thorough search over a period of 9 months.
Another thing to note -- Jamie has good contacts in other areas regarding real estate purchases. I was put in contact with various people in my hunt from individual brokers to bank mortgage lenders and used one of the individual lenders because they were able to close a deal within 15 days!
Thanks Jamie! Let's keep in touch!
– Alex M.
We have had the privilege to work with Jamie on both selling and buying. She is extremely professional and has your best interest at all time. She is an excellent listener and make sure all your transactions go smoothly. Her marketing plan for our unit was of the highest quality and we were able to sell our place in 3 days. Jamie has made buying and selling a seamless transaction. I highly recommend her.
– Roberto O.
You want Jamie Comer on your team!! Period. She knows her stuff inside and out, is incredibly hardworking, does her homework and is a phenomenal negotiator. Buying a home in the Bay Area is not for the faint of heart and Jamie really helped us get the home of our dreams. From house-hunting to making an offer, she will get you in your new home for the best deal.
– Cecilia W.
Our house was on the market 13 days before it sold. It went for $225K above the listing price. Do I really need to say more? Jamie knows her stuff. Highly recommend.
