San Francisco is a beautiful place to live, replete with landmarks, lifestyles and attractions as diverse and colorful as the people who call it home. With so many lifestyle options available, it is important to have an agent that knows the area representing you, and helping you make the most important purchase of your life.

I take the buying process as seriously as my buyers do, therefore I offer nothing but the highest quality of service to my clients. I pride myself on the way I do business. Barbagelata's core values are:

I'll help you understand the current condition of the market via the updates on this site and get all the information that will quickly position you with a variety of great choices and negotiating leverage.

Here are some of the steps we can take to find your perfect home:

Determine Your Wants and Needs

This is the single most important step. By asking you a series of questions I will establish what you are looking for. My goal is to not waste your time by looking at properties that are not in your price range or homes that don't meet your needs. Throughout the buying process I will maintain your confidentiality and represent your best interests.

Help You Get Pre-Qualified

This step will show you how much you can afford.  This is accomplished by speaking with your financial institution and establishing what monthly payments you will be comfortable with. Most sellers in this market will not proceed with an offer until they know they are dealing with someone who is pre-qualified. I can help you get there quickly with several great loan officers I've had clients work with in the past.

Working to pay down credit card debt and saving towards that 20% down payment is a good way to get moving on buying a home even before going to a lender.

Finding the Right Home

We can use the powerful search programs on this site and the latest real estate technology tools to find the properties that match your search parameters. You will also receive a personal username and password, along with your very own client section of our website. You can log in anytime you wish and view properties, make requests, or tell me if you would like schedule an appointment.  I will disclose all known facts about the property that are likely to affect your decision. When I find the home that meets your criteria, I will assist you in writing an offer and act as a liaison between you and the seller.
