Testimonials

“We interviewed four realtors who came highly recommended; from the moment we met them, Jonathan and Alan were the obvious choice. Their savvy about the San Francisco market combined with their hands-on high-touch approach made all the difference in helping us to get a great price for our home of 25 years during the pandemic. Jonathan and Alan had great recommendations for what to update (and not), what staging company to choose, how to market & price. We had an extensive disclosure packet, and Jonathan’s legal background was a big plus. We also had a very unique property, and they met every single prospective buyer and gave them a tour, which allowed them to point out special features and answer questions on the spot. We were delighted with our experience and would give Jonathan and Alan our highest recommendation. They were a pleasure to work with.”

“In the competitive San Francisco luxury real estate market, Alan Martinez and Jonathan Deason have demonstrated that they’re in tune with current market trends, innovative and very professional in getting the job done. After our prior realtor was not able to get our beautiful ORH condo sold, we turned to Alan and Jonathan. With their creative marketing skills and hard work, they sold our condo in 2 months during a challenging market. They are simply the best!”

– Mary & Chris L.

“From beginning to end, working with the Deason group was a great experience. We are first-time home buyers so navigating the San Francisco market was extremely intimidating. The Deason team was highly organized and responsive throughout the process. Nick took the time to make sure we were aware of all scenarios and helped us through the piles of disclosures. He was kind, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and patient. When it came time to make an offer, we felt fortunate to work with Nick and Alan. They went above and beyond to help educate us and make us feel comfortable with the process. Nick and Alan were creative in crafting our offer, and acted as tenacious negotiators. We couldn’t have found a better team of professionals and appreciate all their work on our behalf.”

“Jonathan helped me buy my first place in San Francisco back in 2011 and got me an incredible deal. For a decade, I loved my little one-bedroom. After a bathroom renovation, having to work at my desk in my kitchen for a year, and in the final stages of a condo conversion, I wanted something new and decided to buy a house in the East Bay. Going back to Jonathan was a no-brainer. And, I was even luckier because now he was working with Alan Martinez, who is a nonstop hustler. Although my sale got extremely complicated, as it was happening in tandem with the last steps of the condo conversion, Jonathan and Alan assuaged my anxiety, went above and beyond in terms of working with my neighbors and escrow agent on the conversion, and sold my place for way more than I expected. Then, they turned around and helped me find a great house in Berkeley for much less than I expected to pay. Overall, a win, win, win. I can’t recommend them enough.”

“Jonathan and Alan did an amazing job helping me sell my condo in SF as I was moving cross-country. I literally just left them the keys and hopped on a plane – I didn’t need to lift a finger. They were very proactive in communicating updates and made the place look fantastic. It’s a testament to their knowledge of the local market that they were able to make the sale to a very happy buyer in only a few short days. I highly recommend working with both of them when buying or selling in SF! Truly a white-glove service.”

“Jonathan and Alan recently helped us purchase our home in SF. We had been working together for almost 18 months and were outbid on two other properties. When we finally found the house we had the conviction to buy, Jonathan and David showed creativity and experience to negotiate and close our transaction by avoiding a bidding war. We are confident the creativity in the critical moments helped us negotiate and win the best deal. Jonathan and Alan were also critical in the post-signing to the closing process. They also referred us to a mortgage broker and insurance broker that we ended up using to close the transaction. We have even relied on Jonathan and his team for design ideas and referrals after closing. They have guided our thinking on how potential changes would impact the value of the home. In short, buying a home is one of the most important life decisions one will make, and we are so glad we trusted Jonathan and his team with that responsibility.”

“Alan, Jonathan and David were a home seller’s dream come true. When it was time to sell our beloved San Francisco home, this team guided us through every step with compassion and professionalism. They helped figure out what work needed to be done to prepare the house, they advised when to list the house, and they had a pool of skilled contractors for any painting or other work needed. Most importantly, they work closely with several wonderful stagers, one of whom transformed our house into an art piece. We loved what she designed – every room was interesting and thoughtfully crafted with lots of flowers, plants and unique artwork. We were involved, but also could have stepped out and trusted them to take care of the staging and preparations completely on their own. Alan was open to our requests and also knew when to lobby for specific design decisions. We learned to trust his aesthetic. And we trusted David’s and Jonathan’s understanding of SF’s unique housing market. They all worked with dedication to get our house on the market and match our house with buyers we believe will be just as happy as we were in the house. We’re forever grateful and would recommend them highly to anyone looking to sell (or buy) a home in the Bay Area.”

“We’ve engaged Jonathan to sell and buy multiple properties in San Francisco since 2013. Jonathan is extremely knowledgeable of the complexities and variables one encounters in this unique market we call home, which is so important and reassuring. His experience in developing his own properties also adds tremendous value in evaluating a property and potential challenges. He is extremely professional and fun to work with, and as demonstrated in our last transaction, works extremely hard and with the utmost competence to get a deal done in the most daunting of circumstances (i.e. pandemic). Jonathan, along with his business partner Alan and the escrow/title team, utilize technology to the max to respond and act quickly and make the transaction run seamlessly. I couldn’t have asked for a higher level of expertise and service. Thank you, Jonathan!”

“I have really enjoyed working with Jonathan over the years and he has helped my partner and I with both home purchases and sales. He is a stellar agent who really knows the unwritten real estate rules for the San Francisco market. I couldn’t even think about working with anyone else. Jonathan consistently takes the time to understand the issues and provides great solutions to tough problems.”

“Working with the Deason group was an absolute joy. The team was very organized and experienced. They gave me honest feedback on the home sale and process, which helped me feel secure with the steps we were taking. Ultimately, I was very happy with the sale and their speed of execution and I would highly recommend them.”

“At the start of our home search, we weren’t exactly sure what we wanted. Jonathan and Alan helped us prioritize what we needed, then showed us a variety of options to help us hone in on the perfect place for us. Throughout the entire process, Jonathan and Alan were incredibly patient, answered a lot of questions, and pointed out important details and considerations about each of the homes we toured. They continued to help us out through the entire escrow process – answering all of our questions and helping us navigate issues as they came up. In the end, we are incredibly happy with our first home, and would highly recommend Jonathan and Alan!”

“I have long worked with Jonathan for all of my real estate transactions since 2012 because he is trustworthy, knowledgeable about the housing market, passionate about homes, driven to make deals work, personable, smart, honest, presentable, and articulate. He’s also a pleasure to interact with. I have recommended his services to friends and colleagues over the years, and have received nothing but positive reviews.”

“As first-time buyers, Jonathan made it easy to navigate the San Francisco real estate market and find our perfect home! We weren’t sure it was possible, but Jonathan helped us find a beautiful condo right by Dolores Park with a big backyard. We’re so happy with how things worked out – thanks, Jonathan!​​”

“Jonathan went above and beyond for the sale of our home. He understood the market and advised us well on what cosmetic changes to make to the property and how to time the listing of our property. He also helped resolve a decade long HOA dispute in preparation for the sale. He was very professional and fun to work with!”

– Ryan L. & Paul E.

“I truly enjoy working with Jonathan and Alan. While looking for my ideal place, we saw some really unique properties, I know San Francisco has its share of unique properties, but I think even Jonathan and Alan were surprised by what we dug up! With their insight, relationships, and impeccable reputation, I am now living in a dream. My purchase went through with only a small hiccup at the very end, and they were there with a win-win solution that kept everything on track. If you ask my opinion, I say The Deason Group is the ONLY realty group you need to call.”
