We put our clients squarely at the center of our business. They are our bosses, our focus, our sole responsibility. At the Gullicksen Group my team complements what I do. They add to the service level I offer. They do no take my place with clients. Let’s us help you get the most you can from the sale of your property!

Property Prep – I can advise you on painting, clean-up and staging to help your house show the best that it can. San Francisco Buyers are a sophisticated bunch, but they still respond to the emotional tug of a charming, well kept home. I’ll hire a professional photographer to take great looking shots of the house so that prospective Buyers and their agents can preview it extensively online. I own a Matterport 3D camera so we will provide a 3D Virtual Tour of your property. This allows prospective Buyers and their agents to preview the property before they come look at it in person and/or to tour it online afterwards as many times as they’d like. It’s a great tool to encourage a potential Buyer’s obsession with your place!

Driving Traffic – Our job is to get as many agents and prospective Buyers through the door at showings, Brokers Tours and Open Houses as possible. I take a multi-prong strategy to do so:

Online – Search engine optimization to drive traffic to your listing through Zephyr’s company website, my paid affiliations with sfgate.com, yelp.com, and cleanoffer.com, creating a professional MLS entry, creating a custom property specific website, posting weekly Craigslist Ads, online syndication to assure that your property appears on all of the popular real estate websites and apps.

Realtor Community – Relocation exposure through our affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, inclusion in Zephyr’s weekly emails to all members of the San Francisco MLS, and exposure to the top 10% of the agents in San Francisco through my membership in TAN (Top Agent Network).

The bottom line is all we need is one good Buyer, but I strive to create an atmosphere in the showings – full of other people – so that Buyers are motivated to move quickly. They don’t know that the other people walking through the house are looky-loos or nosy neighbors. It doesn’t matter. It’s all about creating a buzz. If the house looks good and is priced right it will have that buzz and we can get into contract quickly.

  • As first-time home buyers, my wife and I were excited — and pretty scared — about the home-buying process. We knew that the most important thing for us would be to find a Realtor we could trust who would also be fun to spend time with as we searched.

    As soon as we met with Tim, we knew we had found our Realtor.

    He is pleasant, funny and smart. Tim would listen to us, give us good advice, and not let us make a big mistake. In a much shorter time frame than we though, Tim helped us buy a condo we love at a great price.

    Most importantly, Tim does the legwork and research to give context for the very big decisions involved in buying and selling a house. It’s one thing to be helpful and have opinions, but it’s much more important to have the facts.

    Less than a year after Tim helped us buy our place (which we still LOVE), we had to move to New York for work. Tim did the research to guide us through the rent-or-sell decision-making process and helped us to come to the conclusion that we should rent for now — even though it only benefits him if we sell.

    Even though we only have one property, Tim regularly keeps us up to date on the San Francisco market and we have full confidence in him to help us when the time is right to sell.

    We consider Tim a trusted friend and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

  • My partner and I bought a beautiful house in SF last year with Tim’s help.  He was great!  Very patient with our indecision and consistently coming up with new places in our price range and meeting most or all of our requirements.  There are a lot of realtors and real estate in SF and the Bay Area and it is incredibly overwhelming.  Tim was calm, cool and collected and helped us find the best house for our family.

  • I highly recommend Tim if you’re looking to buy your first place. He’s been doing it for a very long time and knows San Francisco like the back of hand; all the new and old developments. Plus he updates himself by religiously attending these Tuesday realtor open houses (talk about doing your homework). During my first condo hunting session with Tim, he took me to visit every possible type of condo. Needless to say, I was overwhelmed and exhausted. But that “orientation” gave Tim a good idea of what I really wanted. He told me afterwards that he usualy stands back and let the other agent do most of talking and question answering so that he can take the time to observe my reaction to each place and the finer details of it. I’ve always thought I would want to live on the upper floors of some new highrise. But it turns out, I prefer a to be closer to the ground in a building with fewer units, which Tim helped me realize after the first day! For the next few hunts, Tim narrowed in on properties that fit what I wanted. I dreaded the fact that it could take months to find a place I wanted. But thanks to the right information presented, it took Tim and me under a month. I ended up with the Radiance in Mission Bay. Tim is very patient and not pushy at all. He will work at your pace. Mine was “let’s not waste time and find me a place NOW!”

  • My husband and I worked with Tim Gullicksen last year to buy our house in SF. It took us awhile to figure out exactly what we wanted and could afford, and Tim was so supportive throughout the whole process. For Tim, it’s all about relationship-building and making sure his clients are happy.

    In addition to possessing an incredible knowledge of SF neighborhoods and houses, Tim is smart, funny, and intuitive. Our search never even felt stressful thanks to Tim’s integrity, friendliness, patience, and responsiveness. I have never run across a realtor who has this complete package.

    We respect Tim so much that we have recommended him to several of our friends, all of whom rave about working with Tim. In fact, one friend just closed escrow last week!

    We are incredibly grateful to Tim, and will work with him the next time we buy or sell!

  • Tim has been a trusted advisor, partner and friend since I first bought a TIC 12 years ago. This year, I reached out just to see what the market might have that met the new needs for our family. He (almost) immediately connected me with an amazing new home. He listened carefully to what I was looking for, found it, and then guided me through a complex offer and buying process. Then he turned around and helped upgrade, market, and quickly sell our old home. When the market took some unexpected turns he helped keep me calm and ensured I got a fair price within the timeframe I needed. He has tremendous experience with the SF market and a true focus on customer service. Throughout the past 12+ years, he has always been available to answer questions, provide advice and make me laugh. Thank you Tim!

  • Second AND third time’s the charm… Tim helped me find my first San Francisco property, a condo in Potrero Hill, some five years back during much slower times. Now, in today’s crazy property market, he not only helped me and my partner sell the same place at a terrific price, but also facilitated our finding a new place, a home in Ingleside in a fabulous location for this emerging neighborhood. Tim’s research and facts are on point as always, and he makes for a most knowledgeable navigator of the market in this ever-changing city.

  • Tim was a godsend to us when my daughter and I finally decided to sell our family home in S. F. He is extremely professional and knows the real estate business inside and out. He works non-stop for his clients and always has your best interests in mind. He took the stress out of the ordeal of selling a property as we both were living out of the area at the time the sale occurred. We would recommend Tim to anyone who is selling or buying property in the Bay Area. We would rate him a 10+. If you are considering a real estate agent, Tim is your agent. We have nothing but praises for Tim. Thanks again Tim. It was indeed our pleasure working with you and would do it again in a heartbeat.

  • My husband and I were first time sellers – STRESSFUL! BUT Tim was so a-mazing! Not only did he help guide us through the process, he was emotionally supportive through it all. He’s extremely knowledgeable and savvy. His insight on the market positioned our home to sell in less than a week! Like I said, he’s A-MAZING! Clearly, he’s VERY good at what he does – a true professional, but what I like most about Tim is that he’s personable and so patient. He was so accommodating to our relentless questions and was always very honest, communicative and we felt reassured knowing that he was on our team. This is such a competitive market. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to help navigate it. When we’re back on the market to buy, no doubt about it, we are calling Tim.

  • I worked with Tim last year to sell my condo in the city. It was my first time selling a property, and Tim was incredibly helpful to work with over the entire process, from discussing pre-sale improvements, finding a stager, handling the paperwork and disclosures, and pricing strategy.

    Even in a hot market, it was trickier than I had expected. My condo had some unusual features that would not have appealed to every buyer. But Tim has a real wealth of market knowledge and, after some early surprises, I wound up getting an offer that I was more than happy with.

    Throughout the process, he couldn’t have been more accessible or supportive. I would highly recommend him to any seller.

  • Tim recently helped my husband and me sell our house in the Parkside District of SF. He was extremely professional and great to work with in every aspect. Great communicator, very knowledgeable about the housing market and offered sound advice on how to get the most for our house. He was right on the mark that an aggressive listing price would generate tremendous interest. He helped us to get competitive bids on work needed to get the house ready. He brought in multiple (9) offers and our house went for well above asking. My husband and I were very happy with the final price. Tim made what was a very stressful time for our family as smooth as could be with his easy going sense of humor, down to earth but disciplined attitude and professional demeanor. I would recommend Tim to anyone buying or selling in SF.

  • im made it so easy to sell our house. He talked us through the different options, gave us excellent advice, and made sure we understood everything. He answered all of our questions and responded to our emails quickly. Plus, he makes sure that all of the details get handled.

    If you’re looking to buy or sell a house, you won’t go wrong with Tim.

  • I recently sold a condo in SF and Tim worked tirelessly on my behalf. If you have ever sold property and felt that you weren’t sure what the realtor actually did to earn his or her commission, you will not feel that way with Tim. He worked doggedly and earned every penny! I was frustrated that half the commission had to go to the buyer’s agent because I felt he deserved it far more. I was selling a tiny unit in Low Pac Heights. He recommended that we update it which was something that simply sounded like a lot of work and hassle to me. Well, it was a lot of work but he handled every detail of it. He dealt with the HOA, with the contractors and stagers, he even fronted the cash for it so that I had no out of pocket expense and could instead reimburse him from the sale proceeds at closing. He dealt with many an HOA headache and demand. He kept me informed throughout the process. And he got me the best possible price. He is savvy, experienced and he really knows the nuances of the SF market. I would highly recommend him. He is the best realtor I have have ever worked with.
