Sleek Atherton contemporary offers ‘striking detail’

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 15:59:13 UT

Mehdi and Nely Jazayeri went above and beyond when they tore down a 1950s Ranch home and built a sleek contemporary at 369 Fletcher Drive in Atherton. The home boasts two wine cellars, seven bedrooms and a central staircase with walnut tread. “They took tremendous care because they built it for themselves. It wasn’t built as a spec development,” said Tom LeMieux of Pacific Union Real Estate, who is co-listing the home with Jennifer Liske for $18.75 million. Upon completion, the couple realized it was too big for them, LeMieux said. Now they’re listing the multimillion-dollar mansion in the nation’s most expensive ZIP code.

Sound Off: What are your Bay Area real estate predictions for 2018?

Fri, 12 Jan 2018 21:16:49 UT

A: 2018 should be another robust year in the Bay Area for real estate. San Francisco will continue to experience a strong demand for single-family homes, especially on the north side of town where there is an extreme lack of inventory. State-of-the-art homes will continue to command top dollar and prices per square foot due to the cost of construction skyrocketing and the process for permitting moving at a sloth-like pace, especially if you are going outside the envelope (original footprint) of the home. We do not expect the new tax laws to affect activity or values of Bay Area real estate. If Interest rates take a big-leap, it could affect the entry level buyer.

Sound Off: How can I help my children cope with moving?

Sat, 6 Jan 2018 02:50:47 UT

A: Relocating is difficult, but for children it can be overwhelming, especially if they are moving from the only home they have ever known and leaving their friends, teachers and community. When helping my clients with relocation, I suggest that they involve their children in the planning as soon as possible. Children need time to process changes and involving them will help them to not feel powerless.
