"The best realtor in San Francisco! In the past 2 years Todd has facilitated the purchase of our first condo and then most recently our second one as we needed a bigger place. I really believe he is the best realtor in town--he is very professional and always buttoned up, responsive, and is a well networked real estate expert in the San Francisco market. Both my partner, Taeho and I, highly recommend him. Especially if you are looking for newer condo developments in the city, Todd has a really good pulse of what's going on as evidenced by his blogs. He has an extensive network of agents, buyers, developers and stagers that has proven to be extremely helpful in the current competitive buyer environment.
"On top of that Todd has always been very good at walking us through the entire process of buying and selling property. As anyone knows, this can be an especially stressful and lengthy process, so it's always good to know that he will respond quickly to any questions as well as proactively guiding you the process, laying out the scenarios and potential outcomes. This helped us when we had to sell our unit as well as understanding how to bid on a competitive property.
In the end, we ended up in a place that we are really happy to call our home in a location that we want to establish our roots in. To Todd --thank you!"

"Todd Montgomery is a real estate agent extraordinaire! He marketed and sold our SOMA condo, setting a price record for our type of unit in the building. I met Todd through friends and immediately liked him --he's very professional and extremely thorough when it comes to making the deal work. He's ALWAYS there for his clients; he works really hard and is on the phone and on his computer working nights and weekends. It's unbelievable. I have some prior experience dealing with real estate agents and his responsiveness is unmatched in the industry.
"Todd was very thoughtful in counseling me and my husband on what we needed to change in the unit prior to putting it on the market. Through Climb we also had our unit professionally staged, which was worth every penny. Our photos on the website turned out so gorgeous that I almost changed my mind about selling the unit--reading it made me want to buy it. Todd manned the open houses and gave us periodic status update as to traffic and general sentiment. Finally, he was very thorough and professional in vetting all the offers we got and counseling us how to manage the various bids. The result was that we sold the unit for a record price in our building and we closed without any issues. I am recommending Todd to all my friends looking to buy or sell real estate in San Francisco."

"We highly recommend working with Todd. 'Phenomenal' and 'trustworthy': we think this would be a the apt way to describe Todd and his relation with us as he helped us in our home search.
"We met Todd in May of last year and right away knew he was going to be our agent. He knows neighborhoods in San Francisco really well and in our home search he patiently took us around to help us figure out the area that worked best for us. He always made himself available in time of need and was extremely accessible. He was very informative about housing trends, pricing trends, what to avoid, what to value etc. etc. and never rushed us to any decision. This was key.
"When we found the home we wanted to go for, he precisely knew how to get the job done. He is extremely well connected with brokers, inspectors, escrows etc. and above all, an excellent negotiator. Closing process could be stressful at times, but not when you have a super agent like Todd.
"Todd - keep up the good work, we really enjoyed working with you."

"Todd Montgomery is the BEST real estate agent if you're looking for a home in San Francisco. I worked with Redfin and interviewed a few other agents before committing to work with Todd. After a long sit-down conversation about the type of home we were looking for, Todd and I set up an appointment. He provided me a list of about a dozen places. I provided him a counter-list of about dozen places, and together we visited most of them. However, before we pulled up to one of Todd's choices, he told me, 'You are going to love this place. This is the place for you.' And he was right! I fell in love, and we bought it. You know you have a great agent when he listens, understands exactly what you want, and can actually find it for you!
"As a first-time homebuyer, the experience was nerve wracking, and I went through a lot of frantic meltdowns. Todd was considerate, supportive, and responsive through the entire process. It was especially difficult because I was living in NYC at the time, so everything had to be handled remotely.
"A few other things about Todd that impressed me:
• He was well connected. The building we bought into was a small boutique new construction, with a waitlist of interested parties. We bypassed the waitlist and became the first to make an offer on the new floor that was released.
• Todd was a great source of information. He researched the amount of money left on the current owner's mortgage, last price bought, etc., renter income, the people making counter offers, etc., to make sure that we were armed with the information we needed to make a solid winning offer.
• He was determined to keep me 'safe'. I kept choosing to look at places in the seedier parts of SOMA, because they seemed bigger and cheaper. He found me a place that was competitively sized and priced, but in a much safer area.
• The first place we saw had a great view, but he made sure to tell us that construction was planned in the next few years that would block the view. These are the type of considerations we weren't aware of, but he always made sure we made our decisions with full knowledge.
"I would recommend Todd without hesitation. In fact, I've already recommended him to 3 other friends who have all bought homes they are very happy with. Todd will find you the diamond in the rough, and will be there to support you through the process!"
