I‘ve been helping buyers and sellers throughout San Francisco since 2004. With some of the most valuable real estate in the world, you might feel like a lot is at stake in this market, and in such a complicated and emotional transaction, may not even know where to start. This site is a great place to begin, with a lot of resources to point you in the right direction. But nothing replaces a real conversation with an expert, so when you’re ready for a phone call, I’m here.
"As first time homebuyers, we could not have asked for a better agent than James Haywood. He guided us through the process from start to finish ensuring we understood the market and expectations on next steps at every turn. One thing we particularly enjoyed about working with James was his very friendly and warm personality....Christina J
"James is an absolute pleasure to work with. I’ve worked with him twice now, when I bought my condo and when I sold it. James’ knowledge of San Francisco and the complex market provided invaluable; and his intuition and ability to read the situation of buyers and sellers ensured 'above expectations' outcomes both times. More...Annin P
"When I decided it was time to sell my condo, I interviewed several realty agents for the task. James impressed me the most. I thought the process would be a “hard sell,” but James took me through all the right steps and the place sold in about two weeks after it was listed. Not only...Ted ~
"We loved working with James! He provided great advice and expert knowledge of the San Francisco area and market. In fact, we weren't even going to put an offer in on the house we ended up buying because we assumed it would go for too much, but thankfully, per James advice, we put in an...Another Client Testimonial - So kind.
James is a low-key, top-performance realtor. Evidence? He's a top-notch San Francisco realtor yet he didn't even have a Yelp account! I am honoured to be the first to write a review for him on Yelp. Before we hired him we already knew his excellent track record, but working with him was indeed a breeze...Seirra V
James has been our guide through both the buying and selling process of our San Francisco home. More like an all knowing all seeing extra patient sherpa guide. A sherpa who makes it look so easy and low key, you'll hardly know you were scaling a mountain, no less the formidable market that is SF....Matt S.
I worked with James in late 2015-early 2016 to sell my condo and buy a new place (at the same time!). James played multiple roles - industry expert, advisor, advocate... and therapist. He was always incredibly responsive, flexible and ready to deal with any hurdles (as a non-permanent resident buyer, I faced many of them!)....Agustina Sacerdote
My husband and I found James as a referral through close friends. We found a lifetime realtor and friend in James. James is persistent and gets the job done, in overwhelming markets, always remaining calm. In addition to his years of successful experience, he is above board in all business practices and is genuinely a...Kelsey & Brian Piro
It was a pleasure to work with James on the purchase of my condo. His insight and expert knowledge of the market led to a successful transaction. He provided great advice and handled every step of the process from start to finish. Thank you, James!...Greg H
James has been our trusty guide/realtor through 2 home purchases over the past 5 years. He has a knack for putting you at ease for what would normally be an exciting and utterly nerve-wracking undertaking. We are so grateful for his honesty, patience, professionalism, and overall human kindness. Thank you, James!...Christine and Eugene
