A Word From Our Happy Clients

“Jeff Marples and Kyle Algeo did a fantastic job in quickly renting our house in Tiburon. From the time we signed the listing agreement to the start of the lease was one month! Jeff and Kyle researched the market to determine an appropriate rental, hired a photographer to take spectacular photos of our house and wrote up a great listing for Zillow. On the first weekend we had several interested families. They followed up with the potential tenants, helped us review and sort through the applicants, and when we settled on one, put together all of the lease paperwork and followed up on payment. The team of Jeff and Kyle used their experience, market knowledge and marketing skills to achieve a great result. Plus they are really nice guys! The whole leasing process was accomplished professionally and quickly! We highly recommend Jeff and Kyle.”

Jim R.

“In October 2020, we knew the process of selling our condo rental in San Francisco — during a pandemic and in the weeks before a huge U.S. election —would be strange and atypical. (In the end, we never physically met Jeff in person!) From our first phone call, Jeff was knowledgeable, honest, and personable. He set expectations, didn’t sugar-coated anything, and was responsive, especially via text. He guided us through the pre-listing process, setting up repairs, painting, staging, and more, all without having to visit the unit in person; everything was conveniently done online or on the phone, making the process easy for us, especially during COVID-19. He also helped us with counter-offers and minor hiccups that came up during escrow and was someone we could depend on overall. Thank you, Jeff!”

Cheri L.

“Kyle has been helping us with renting out our condo for a couple years now. He’s fantastic – professional, pragmatic and super fair.”

Vikram S.

“Kyle just rented our condo and I was very pleased with his level of service and attentiveness. He responded to requests right away and has a great network of resources – photographers, handy-people, cleaners – and he takes care of it all. We’ll definitely reach out to him to help with our next vacancy and we are recommending him to our friends. A true professional!”

Sarah R.

“We worked with Jeff as the buyer’s agent for our home in Russian Hill. Jeff was incredibly responsive and rarely took more than 5 minutes to respond to us, if he wasn’t immediately available. After our offer was accepted he was incredibly accommodating as we had to revisit the property several times with our contractors. He went above and beyond helping us find contractors for our upgrades ahead of our move. His memory is killer — we looked at a property he sold 5 years ago and his comments on potential issues were spot on. We hope to find another opportunity to work with him in the future.”

Ivy N.

“Jeffrey was an awesome realtor to work with! While selling our condo in a challenging market, He and his team went above and beyond to make sure we were successful. From photography, to styling, to marketing, his recommendations were always on point. Beyond this, Jeffrey was always responsive, ethical, professional, and has a great sense of humor.”

Bobby L.

“Buying Property? Jeff is a vivacious, gregarious, and an overall savvy realtor. He’s one you’re glad is on your team from an executional and a pure enjoyment to work with standpoint. From day one, I told Jeff exactly what I was looking for and I quickly realized I felt very understood by him. He was soon able to anticipate my needs as if we’d been working together for years.

Over the course of a few months I sent Jeff two lists of properties I was interested in which were a mix between properties I had found on Zillow and ones Jeff had shared with me. In short order, Jeff had every property lined up to tour at my convenience.

On my 2nd day of touring, I found my first property I wanted to put an offer on. The issue with this particular property was I knew there would be no other like it, a true dream place. This is when I felt the pressure mounting for us to perform. The second we left the property, Jeff was on the phone with the selling agent building a relationship.

From then on, I was impressed with how Jeff’s strategic moves from what we communicated to the selling agent to his advice for my lender. One area really stood out the most and that was Jeff’s negotiation skills. He, without a doubt was working for ME, ensuring I got the very best deal while also maximizing our odds of landing the property.

We met a slew of challenges from a delayed appraisal from the bank to a backup offer on the table and more. But rest assured, I did really feel like I was always in good hands with Jeff’s always upbeat, positive, crafty, yet almost stoic approach.

Jeff also did the little things like driving to a hardware store to pick up a garage door opener for me, or lending me his lockbox, or referring me to all of his craftspeople. Last but not least, escrow can always be a stressful, high-pressure time. However, in hindsight it sure had its stresses, but at the end of the day I had a blast working with Jeff. ”

Tyler P.

“Jeff is an amazing broker! He is super experienced, knowledgeable, and responsive. He’s personable and knows how to get the job done. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone buying or selling! Jeff has helped us purchase 2 properties. His recommendations on price and considerations were absolutely on point, which shows that he knows the market. He gave us his honest thoughts and pointed out things we didn’t notice or considered about the properties. This type of information is invaluable, especially as new home buyers. He was never pushy and let us make the decision on what we felt comfortable with. We would go to open houses and let him know which ones we potentially would like to put in an offer for. He would contact the agent ASAP and go take a look himself. Our second property purchase was a unique situation where they didn’t use an actual real estate agent, which made the process much harder since they didn’t know what they were doing. Luckily we had Jeff to ensure both sides had all the proper steps and paperwork done. Negotiations, follow ups, and addendums were plenty during this process. Jeff saved us from multiple headaches and ensured the sellers followed through on agreements and protected us as buyers.”

Titus S.

“Jeff did a good job for me. I’m very pleased with his work. He was actively involved in keeping me motivated as a buyer. I wanted to be the buyer and a good client….I will definitely would refer business, if asked, to
his direction. Communication and professionalism was good. He made me feel at ease/peace of mind during the process. Looking forward to the future. ”

Reid J.

“We just sold our house in this crazy pandemic! Jeff was instrumental in helping us understand the market as best anyone could do right now. He had stats for the number lovers and clearly did his homework. He came up with a great marketing plan for the house and we were completely done within a month and a half at a great price!”

Jen V.

“Jeff was the buyer’s agent for a condo we found online ourselves. He immediately impressed us with his helpfulness, and that has continued through all that followed. We offered, counter-offered per his advice, and got our dram home. He then helped us find a bridge loan, and will be our agent for selling our resent home. We couldn’t have asked for more!”

Dolores H.

“Jeffrey Marples worked dual between seller, and I (buyer). The representation, offers and counter were clear and reputable, no fluff nor anxieties extreme. Jeffrey Marples, was not on a high wire; he represented seller and me, the buyer, fairly. I have a real estate background and I feel Jeffrey Marples is special,a bit centralist, above board, easy and expertly to communicate and punctually fills out the documents. My two words to best describe working with Jeff: “efficient and patient”.”

Ron R.

“Jeff was extraordinarily helpful, efficient and was able to focus on our transaction while being occupied with other matters as if we were his only client and ours was the only matter in which he was involved. He was sensitive to the conditions under which we were working and brought the matter to a positive resolution too the benefit of all parties.”

Russ T.

“Jeff is an expert on the San Francisco real estate market. He knows what is going on the local neighborhoods and the type of housing you are looking to buy or to sell. Jeff made multiple trips to our house to evaluate it and to figure out the best way to position it in the market. This included both the optimal pricing and marketing strategies. He also has an army of folks to help with prepping the house, staging it, handling the paper work before and after the sale. He helped us sell our house for more than what we were expecting. He is very efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable. I recommend Jeff highly.”

Krishna V.

“Jeffrey offered very comprehensive, detailed, personalized attentive services that made the process unique and unlike the usual approach that is generally out there, so it was a very interesting, educational and almost a relaxing experience, compared to how it usually is. I liked how Jeffrey was on top of everything that needed to be done, needed to be checked into, and was able to get back right away with the information that was needed. He really gave individualized attention and moved the process along in an easy to deal with format for us. We have recommended him to others already.”

Gabrielle B.

“I have been their client and worked with them for one transaction and found them to be very personable and always available. Availability is very important. Even after my transaction was completed, I called them with some questions I had and they were very available at any time to help me. They were very helpful, so I really liked that. I like that they are willing to make themselves available at any time and have been very helpful.”

Lisa R. – Marin


Jeffrey was the only person we met. He was very helpful, friendly, nice, and thorough. I liked that Jeffrey was able to take us around and show us the different properties and was able to educate us on the market in San Francisco. It takes an insider who knows the market well and Jeffrey was able to help us find our condominium.”

Zara S.

“Jeffrey is very focused and straightforward. He works very hard and is attentive to detail. He is very proactive and goes above and beyond to provide everything the buyer needs to be aware of, and should be educated about. He knows what is needed and makes certain everything is done correctly and completely. I like his no-nonsense practical and thorough approach. Nothing is done half baked. I know I can rely on him.”

Danijela S.

“They are very honest and decent in their dealings with their clients. I felt I could trust and rely on what I was being told by them. I felt very comfortable and that I was not being given any B.S. I liked their personalized attention and their forthright demeanor compared to what I usually am exposed to by other companies that just offer a lot of B.S. and not truthfulness.”

George G.

“They definitely know what they are doing and they help quite a bit, especially when it comes to getting all the paperwork in order. They made it as painless as possible. This was the first time I had looked for a house, so I didn’t know what to expect. I had an image of Realtor trying to sell all the points. It wasn’t like that at all. He came with us and voiced his concerns, which was great. It didn’t feel as if he was selling something. I appreciated that it was not a sales pitch, but that he was more of a supporter for us. I was very happy.”

Marshal C.

“They’re very knowledgeable in the high-rise areas of San Francisco. He certainly seems to know his high-rises. I thought they listened very carefully to our requirements and they didn’t try and put us into areas that clearly would not have met our needs. They follow up well and they have a good website.”

Ravi C.

“Our children have used their services and liked them so this is how we got to know them too. It has worked out very well for us. We highly recommend them. We liked how Jeffrey was willing to meet us here, on the Peninsula and at strange hours due to my husband’s schedule. We liked how available and flexible Jeffrey was to work around our crazy schedule and logistics.”

Thomas N.

“Jeffrey is very knowledgeable about real estate in Marin. He is not pushy but really wants you to find you a place you like and then he will try to get you a reasonable price and give you an assessment of what prices are fair in making an assessment of the property and the market the property is in. I like how helpful and resourceful he is and how they are able to give great personal assistance to people wishing to find good values in San Francisco.”

Emily J. – Marin

“They really genuinely care about their clients. Jeff was hands-on all the way. He walked us through the whole process and made sure we were happy with our investment. I liked Jeff’s personality and the fact that he made us feel he was on top of the situation. We never had any moments where we questioned whether he knew what he was doing. He was really professional. He was perfect.”

Tim M.

“Jeffrey is very knowledge about the market and all the different buildings in the area. I like how knowledgeable they are about the buildings, their locations, and the rental market. They seem to have a good grasp on the housing and job markets and the needs of what buyers and renters want.”

Sylvia F.

“Jeffrey was fabulous. He went above and beyond. We live out of town and had the task of selling a relative’s home. Jeffrey took on the project and did everything that was needed and necessary to make that sale happen. I liked how Jeff was able to take care of finding contractors to work on the home, making sure the work was done properly, and how he got every detail taken care of so that the sale could be completed. I cannot recommend him highly enough, because of everything he did throughout the entire process.”

Susan F.

“The quality of Jeff’s services were just excellent. We have referred Jeffrey to a bunch of other people already. We like how he tailors his service to the client’s needs and finds such good deals. There was never any pressure. It always seemed like he had our best interests at heart. In fact, I liked how he convinced us not to bid on certain properties which he felt were way over-priced.”

Abe N. – San Francisco

“They really genuinely care about their clients. Jeff was hands-on all the way. He walked us through the whole process and made sure we were happy with our investment. I liked Jeff’s personality and the fact that he made us feel he was on top of the situation. We never had any moments where we questioned whether he knew what he was doing. He was really professional. He was perfect.”

Tim M.

“Jeffrey is very knowledge about the market and all the different buildings in the area. I like how knowledgeable they are about the buildings, their locations, and the rental market. They seem to have a good grasp on the housing and job markets and the needs of what buyers and renters want.”

Sylvia F.

“I think Jeffrey is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in San Francisco. He’s really helpful and gives a lot of information for people like me who are first-time homebuyers. He didn’t push me into a deal, rather he spent time going to different open houses with me and tried to help me make the best decision for me. In terms of negotiations, he gave me very good assessments of where the market prices should be and the best price to offer. One thing is that he’s very knowledgeable about real estate buying and second he’s not a pushy guy. He doesn’t want you to just make a deal for his commission. He wants you to find the best home for you. My experience was pretty positive.”

Emily H.

“We recently sold our San Francisco condo. After meeting Jeff Marples, we were convinced that he was the best agent for the job based on his knowledge of the market, his ability to listen and understand our needs as sellers and his overall personality and energy. We were not disappointed. It’s fantastic working with someone follows through completely with all their commitments, and that’s Jeff to a tee. If you’re looking for an agent that will always go the “extra yard” on your behalf, look no further.”

Ken P.

“Jeff is amazing – seriously! It can be a really tricky market out there from selection to funding and beyond. Because of his passion for what he does (and it’s really apparent), he makes the process as painless as I’ve ever known. Extremely knowledgeable, professional, patient and helpful all with a “non-stuffy” friendly demeanor. Bottom line: Jeff is successful because of his unflinching focus on his clients needs. I highly recommend Jeff. – Great job guys!”

Tom C.

“Jeff recently helped us purchase a weekend home in the city. We approached Jeff with specific choices and were quite apprehensive in being able to locate something that fit our needs. We were also concerned in being able to find a realtor that we could trust and somebody that accommodate our busy work schedule. We found Jeff to be very professional, trust worthy, easy to work with, and punctual. He made buying the home a pleasure and the process was extremely quick and surprisingly simple. We would highly recommend Jeff to anybody looking for a place in the city.”

Shobha V.

“Last year, we were getting ready to sell our townhouse in San Francisco, and we called Jeff at Spinnaker. Friends had referred us to him after their own successful sale with him. He recommended what improvements to do in order to get the house into the best condition for sale. We were commuting between the SF house and our other home and to help us with logistics, Jeff recommended the best sources for flooring and painting. Once we emptied the house and after we made arrangements with the flooring and painting contractors, he was willing to oversee the installation of the flooring as well as being available for the painting, coordinating the energy inspection and installation of the required low-flow toilets, and hanging a new chandelier. His help with the pre-sale pre work was invaluable to us, ensuring that we didn’t have to drive 70 miles in and out of SF every day to oversee all that work. It all came out beautifully. When we put it on the market, he used social media as well as email and traditional media to get the word out at a time when the market was softening somewhat. He diligently held broker open houses and public ones, and kept contacting others throughout his wide network. The offer we accepted was a solid one and he helped throughout the contract process making sure that parties on the buyers side were all in and that we were informed regularly as we went along, so this deal went through to a successful conclusion. He is a real pro, creative, supportive, knowledgeable and a very nice person as well.”

Carol E. San Francisco

“We have lived in the bay are for over 35 years and Jeff is the very best broker we have ever worked with. He is smart,funny and very precise in everything he does. Found us everything we needed and he even goes that extra mile. He adds a great personal touch that is rare to find and we thoroughly enjoy Jeff and his company and all their expertise. Will most certainly do business with Jeff again in the future!!”

Mickey & Lin, San Francisco

“He is never impatient, never annoyed, and never pompous. We worked with him over many months selling our original condo and finding a new one in a better neighborhood. In terms of finding the new place, Jeff figured out what we needed/wanted and kept us supplied with possible options week after week — until the magic one showed up. Once we had identified the target, Jeff worked beautifully with the listing agent to help us win the bid. Getting the deal done was a work of art and Jeff was Picasso. Step two was then selling our existing unit. Once we had the new place, Jeff efficiently arranged for repainting and staging and had the unit on the market in no time. Once on, because of savvy pricing and effective marketing, we had a couple offers right away. A moment of turbulence happened a couple of weeks later because the original buyer vacated the deal, but Jeff had presciently arranged for a backup offer at the same price. We closed at top dollar. Getting the second deal done was a work of art and Jeff was Monet. Jeff is good. Relaxed. Honest. Fun and funny. Effective. Artistic with the deal. He’s the Best.”

Tim M.

“I am a commercial real estate broker and was considering whether or not to move up to San Francisco. It was a long shot and I let Jeff know that in advance. Even though I wasn’t a high percentage client for him he took the time to determine what my family was interested in, and then went through every listing weekly to find whether anything met my needs. I would recommend Jeff to anyone interested in buying a home in San Francisco. Truly excellent.”

Larry W.

“To anyone who is looking to buy or sell property in San Francisco. We met Jeff Marples while we were looking for a condo in San Francisco. From the first day we liked him for his professionalism, down to earth attitude and treating us as a valued client. He pointed us in the right direction for our condo, based on our needs and guided us away from the properties that were not right for us. After we chose our condo, not only did he guide us every step of the way through the buying process but even helped us get our condo ready for move in.”

Neela M., San Francisco

“I worked with Jeff and Rob, they were both extraordinary and very patient. I had some high hopes for my future home, and in this tricky real estate market I knew we would potentially hunt for a long time. Regardless of the long search, he answered all of my questions, took me to see who knows how many open houses, and addressed my concerns. I really felt I could trust him to help me in making a very important decision. I’ve come away from working with them like not only offered incredible professional help, but that they are also a friend. Cheesy and cliche as it may be, they is wonderful! Rob has actually come over to my new place on more than one occasion to fix things. This continues to astound me. They are phenomenal agents and people, and I would them again in a heartbeat.”

Maggie S.

“Jeff is absolutely the best. We just finished our third sale/purchase with him and every one of them has been just perfect. In one case, we looked for a place for over a year. We gave him our specs and neighborhood preference and he was patient and supportive as we sorted through places that weren’t quite right until we found the perfect place. Throughout the process, Jeff was helpful in showing us an array of options that he thought would match with our needs and some creative possibilities that he picked based on his knowledge of our preferences. He knows the market and tracks options coming on; so, we got to new possibilities very quickly. Jeff also works with the mortgage brokers and other agents and title companies to make sure they have what they need to close the deal and keep things in order along the way. He is a relationship builder and clearly has the confidence and trust of others involved in transactions which helps speed things up and avoid potholes along the way.”

Susan

“They are professional, responsive, and because they understood exactly what I wanted, they were able to find the absolute perfect place for me. I’ve been very happy living here. ”

Nitin D., San Francisco

“I cannot say enough about how Bryant helped my wife and I find our dream home. San Francisco is obviously a very tough market and he was so patient and helpful throughout our search. His knowledge of the city, other brokers and projects, what we were looking for, etc. all helped us hone in on and find exactly what we were looking for. But, even after that, the bid, loan, negotiation and closing were all expertly orchestrated by him. It’s a good sign when the opposing/other brokers all say they respect and like Bryant.

We would not be in our dream home today had it not been for Bryant. Thank you!!!”
