What clients are saying about working with Alex
Alex is a hardworking, trustworthy and effective agent - and has a great sense of humor, which is essential in this crazy market. After providing an exhaustive tour the various established and up-and-coming neighborhoods of SF, he helped me narrow my search to the more established neighborhoods that I knew and liked. After identifying the right property, he helped me move quickly and decisively. Alex's keen sense of the market clearing price helped position our offer to carry the day. I could not have done it without him.
Furthermore, Alex was willing to go above and beyond standard broker duties. This was especially valuable in dealing with an evasive and unreliable lender. He helped assuage the concerns of the selling agent when our timeline was extended due to the false promises of my chosen lender. Alex remained by my side as a guide and advocate throughout the entire process and I felt as though I always had his full attention. He even helped me dispose of an open bucket of paint thinner left by the seller's staging company - no easy task.
A stand up guy and true mensch.

Alex went above and beyond the call of duty in selling our SOMA condo / loft. He was thorough and helpful and made the whole process quite easy for us, which was important as we were out of town owners. We got above asking price, which was great and I was certain that he was giving us his full attention and going the extra mile and that he knew the market well. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

Alex Kaufman is ON IT! J. Wavro and fellow SF city-dwellers, I cannot say enough about how great this Agent is to work with.
Apartment hunting in San Francisco is a competitive, grueling, time-consuming, and tedious effort. I looked at a dozen apartments and worked with several other Agents at various agencies in the bay area. Alex is by far the most helpful and pleasant to work with. He's honest, has your best interests at heart, punctual, and is QUICK to respond. Ask him anything you want about the market - he'll give it to you straight. The guy is good peoples.
Each and every interaction with Alex throughout the process - from scheduling a viewing, to processing my application, to signing the lease, to meeting the landlord, to getting move-in information - had a 1-day turn-around. Amazing. For a busy gal like me, I appreciate the no-frills speedy service!
I am now moving into a new dream apartment that could not be a more perfect match. Thank you, Alex and J. Wavro!

Had a great experience with Alex Kaufman from J Wavro. He got us two possible renters within 2 weeks of listing our condo, and was able to negotiate a better price with one of them.
He is very responsive to email, and is open to any ideas I had on how to rent it out.
Overall a great experience, and I highly recommend you deal with Alex.

Alex Kaufman is AWESOME. We were relocating to the city and had a ton of questions. He helped us find the perfect place and answered every question with knowledge. After moving in, he followed up with us several times over the first month just to make sure everything was ok and that we were happy. We would definitely use him again and refer everyone to him.

Alex Kaufman helped us rent out our condo in South Beach. He was totally professional and took care of every detail from start to finish. He worked with our existing tenant on showings and made the entire process easy. He found us two great tenants to choose from (at a fair market price) for our unit in less than a week, right before the holidays - a typically bad time of the year to rent. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a broker to rent their unit.

Alex Kaufman is a true pro. I've worked with him to find a new apartment on two separate occasions and he has been terrific. He is prompt, knowledgable and straight to the point. In short, he's a good listener, won't waste your time and will find you the place you want.
Finding a new place in SF is no fun, and using an agent isn't cheap. So, retain someone who you'll like and feel like you got your money's worth!

If you want to rent the perfect place in SF, hire Alex Kaufman.
For less than one month's rent, Alex found me the perfect Castro gem after more than a year of looking myself. What's more, he did it all in a weekend. He cut through all the red tape and got me to the top of each potential landlord's list, all while educating me about the city's neighborhoods and the pros/cons of living there.
Alex took the time straight off the bat to get to know me, and was therefor MUCH better suited to find me a place than A) myself or B) someone with a list of my preferences. Together, we found a place that I really DID want, and where I am very, very, very happy.
Get Alex, get moved, and do it yesterday!

Alex Kaufman rented out my loft for me this spring. In a terrible rental market for landlords, Alex guided me through staging, pricing and lease negotiations. He found a great tenant in a few weeks, ran the background and credit checks, and got the lease signed in a matter of hours. His communication with me was constant and effective. I will happily work with Alex again in the future and highly recommend him to anyone looking for help.
