I have never experienced real estate agents like the Bellings Brothers! Deciding to sell our home in SF was an emotional and difficult decision to make, however once my sister and I made the decision to work with Michael and Aaron, we never looked back! We took the time to research and interview four different real estate agents/brokers that were recommended on Top Agents Ranked. Choosing the Bellings Brothers was the obvious choice after listening to their marketing strategy and getting to know their awesome personalities. Their expertise and professionalism came shining through but they were also very comfortable to talk to and didn’t play any high pressure games. I started researching real estate agents very early on, even when we weren’t sure if we really wanted to sell. Michael was the only one that regularly touched base with me for months before to see how I was doing. There was never any pressure, it was a simple reminder that the Bellings Brothers were ready and waiting to talk to us more, if we made the decision to sell. Their persistence really paid off, because I realized that their relentless work ethic would pay off in the home-selling process. If they were that driven with me, they would be driven during the home-selling process too! And of course we felt very lucky, that we got two real estate agents for the price of one! Michael and Aaron both have different strengths that completely create an outstanding team!

I have never known a real estate agent to go so ABOVE AND BEYOND! We were nervous about how our over 100 year old house would do on the market, but the Bellings Brothers came to the rescue! They called upon various tradespeople they have worked with and gave us three estimates for almost every job, which was super helpful for us since we didn’t have any experience with floor refinishers, painters, landscapers, handymen, cleaning teams or stagers. They coordinated everything and we never had to be at the house, which helped me out tremendously since I live over an hour away. They literally transformed our diamond in the rough into a beautiful gem, within several weeks!

Michael and Aaron made themselves extremely available the entire time and immediately answered our numerous texts, emails and phone calls. They explained everything very thoroughly as we were first time home-sellers. Now, for the most exciting news…OUR HOUSE SOLD FOR ALMOST $300,000 OVER THE ASKING PRICE!!! We were thrilled!

My sister decided to begin a new home search pretty quickly after this sale, and of course the Bellings Brothers delivered AGAIN! My sister and her husband just found the perfect home for them, right by Ocean Beach and Golden Gate Park!

I highly recommend the Bellings Brothers for anyone looking to buy or sell in SF. I only wish they worked in Solano County so I could have the opportunity to work with them again when I am ready to buy a new home.
THANK YOU BROTHERS…LOVE, THE SISTERS!!!

The Bellings Brothers did a great job! My sister and I were selling our family home and interviewed several realtors. We thought Aaron and Michael had the best marketing strategy so we picked them. They made everything easy and once we were ready to sell they took the lead and got the job done. They spent a lot of time getting the house looking its best which I think helped us a lot once the house hit the market. They also got us a price we were happy with and closed quick so I definitely recommend them! If I have any real estate needs in the future I would not hesitate to use them.

My partner and I were looking for our first home in SF and were lucky enough to work with Michael and Aaron. They are just the best – I can’t recommend them enough. You have to understand my partner (Marti) and I first to understand how amazing Michael and Aaron are. Marti once spent over an hour reading reviews for the best pair of goggles for the one time that he *might* go swimming. I was pretty worried that the decision fatigue alone of buying a house was going to kill him.

We met with the Bellings brothers early on during our housing search but also with other real estate agents. It’s probably a mix of personal preference but as first time homebuyers, we were impressed with their clear knowledge, energy and striking ability to hand-hold while allowing us to take the lead.

Things that really stood out:
– Promptness. Text, calls, emails were all return at record speed. We were peripherally aware of other clients but we always felt like a priority.
– Flexibility. There’s a schedule to SF real estate but my erratic work schedule meant that I was going to be doing a lot of things at random hours. They helped coordinate showings of homes at times that were convenient for us. When we became interested in a property and wanted to look at it at night, they met us there at the location with 30 minutes notice.
– Patience. There were questions. And then more questions. And then questions from my mother. All of which were answered throughly and patiently.

In the end, we found our dream home. We have nothing to compare Michael and Aaron to but I feel pretty confident that it doesn’t get any better since they made our first home-buying experience in SF so smooth. We felt like we had advocates on our side who weren’t going to let us fall through the cracks or let us make poor decisions. That level of security allowed us to just focus on finding a home we love. There were still excessive pro/con lists and debates and we both definitely hit a point of decision fatigue but it was about the house and not about the process which I think is a sign of a great agent.

It was fantastic to have the Bellings Brothers on our side as we were going through our first house purchase. We primarily worked with Michael, but both sat down with us at the beginning to scope out our needs and both provided advice through the process. They made sure we felt well taken care of while respecting our preferences and giving us space to proceed with the house hunt at our own pace. They provided great insight into the market backed up by their research and experience, and it was clear that they put a lot of consideration into the advice they provided. And it paid off because we were successful on our first offer! Once the offer was accepted, Michael did a fantastic job of making sure all the pieces were in line for the purchase to go through quickly, including management of competing lenders, and we closed ahead of schedule. Thank you so much for making the purchase process smooth and easy! We are so pleased with our new home.

My boyfriend and I found Michael at an open house he had for one of his listings. We knew right away we wanted to work with him because he gave every single person at the open house vip treatment even if it seemed as though they weren’t serious. There was zero judgement and genuine care and absolutely no pressure. From the moment we started working with him to find a condo in SF we knew we made the right choice. He provides unlimited time and thorough advice to help narrow down the listings that were right for us. We honestly were astounded at the time and attention he gave to us as well as all of his other clients. At the end of the day he stayed 100% on his game with us for about 5 months until we found the perfect condo. He is also AMAZING with helping in the mortgage process. He is so efficient and has really great working relationships with the bank we used (through his recommendation of course)! We were also able to work with his brother, Aaron, who is equally as professional, efficient and provided very helpful advice. All in all Michael and Aaron are the BEST! We honestly feel that we could not have found anyone better than them and are going to recommend them to everyone we can!

My husband and I met Michael at an open house when we were just starting to look. We knew we had found our guy – he’s super friendly, insanely knowledgeable about San Francisco real estate (and the city in general), and just really seemed to get us and what were looking for. We chatted via phone and email over the next few weeks as we went out and looked at places. He also referred a few mortgage brokers and was great at coordinating and helping through that whole process. Michael was always above-and-beyond helpful without every being pushy.

Once we were approved, we had a meeting with both Michael and Aaron at their office to talk more about the nitty-gritty of the home-buying process and to review a disclosure packet for a place we had looked at and loved. They were so incredibly flexible in finding a time that worked for us despite the fact that it probably wasn’t ideal for them (6:30 PM on Memorial Day), and we didn’t feel at all rushed through the meeting; they really made sure we had all of our questions answered and concerns addressed. This was the first we had met Aaron, and we weren’t at all surprised to find that he’s just as lovely as Michael. Given our interest in one particular home, they offered to take us back there the next day so we could look at it again on our own time. Again, they both went out of their way to accommodate our schedule and let us wander around for waaaay longer than we did at the open house 🙂 They both offered their opinions and thoughts on the place, how it was valued, etc – all very helpful and presented in a way that didn’t try to sway us one way or the other.

After much debate and hand-wringing on our end, we ended up making an offer on the house the next day! Michael patiently listened to our worries and concerns and offered advice without pressuring us at all. He worked his magic, and our offer was accepted! From there it was a whirlwind of getting the loan and title in order, and Michael was right there keeping things moving smoothly along. He helped us get set up with a closing date that was right between my husband’s work travel and a family wedding we had. Even though it was mostly up to title and the bank at this point, Michael checked in with all of us regularly to make sure everyone was coordinating with each other and on schedule. We really felt taken care of through the whole process.

Now, thanks to Michael and Aaron, we’re ready to move in to our own little slice of San Francisco this weekend! We really can’t thank them enough – they were both a joy to work with, and they made the whole process as smooth as it could possibly be! You can’t go wrong with these guys!

As first time home buyers, we lucked out in working with Aaron and Michael. Referred by a friend, we met with them and did not look back. From our initial meeting, their expertise and efficiency impressed us and, in general, they’re just really great guys. We continued to be impressed throughout the process by how well they know the city and their practice.

As others have mentioned, they responded very quickly to all our questions and, even though they were juggling multiple clients at a time, we always felt like a priority. We had some trepidation about the stereotype of real estate agents looking out for the bottom line, but Michal and Aaron really worked to understand our needs and our finances and find the right fit for us. And find it we did – less than a month after we began our search, we had an offer accepted on an amazing condo after Michael did some incredible negotiating. He really understood the market, the buyers and how we could best position ourselves in negotiations while not taking unnecessary risk. We wouldn’t have gotten the place without him (Thank you Michael!!!!!). And, after negotiations, he continued to work hard to make sure escrow went smoothly, staying in touch with the many players involved in a sale and keeping us in the loop.

If you work with them, and you absolutely should, you’ll hear the refrain from them “we’re with you every step of the way” and they truly are. We love our new home and are incredibly grateful for their help, insight and expertise in finding it.

Aaron and Michael made the sale of our condo simple and effortless. They participated fully in each step along the way. They provided fabulous recommendations and vendors to work with and project managed them. Loved work with the Bellings brothers!

Michael and Aaron helped my sell my condo in SF. They did an outstanding job. They stayed on top of everything.

– Thomas C. San Francisco, CA – Seller

Aaron was great to work with! Being a first time buyer in SF can be challenging but he was able to help me navigate the entire process. Communication was extremely easy and Aaron and michael were always reachable any hour of the day. They were always checking in along the search process and always offered to help. It was a great experience and I would definitely recommend working with Aaron and Michael to anyone who is in the market!
