What People Are Saying

"I'm truly blessed to work with and represent the incredible people of San Francisco and the Bay Area. Thank you for your kind words!"

– Subhi

Honest, detailed, and responsive.

Subhi was very honest, detailed, and responsive. He was strong in his quantitative skills of assessing the market/neighborhoods and was honest and open about the market. His follow-up and insights in working with the other agents was strong. He also has a great sense of humor and is easy to work with which my wife and I liked. I have purchased 4 properties in my life and he was by far the best professional I've worked with.

Subhi's responsiveness and flexibility was vital to our home buying process!

Subhi assisted with our first home purchase in San Francisco this last month. . . which was no easy task given the limited options we had in our price range and the desired location. His responsiveness and flexibility were vital to our home buying process. At the end what ultimately secured our home was the fact that he got us in the property on its very first day and was able to negotiate the contract to our benefit!

Subhi was there for us 100%

When we first started looking to buy a home, my wife and I were stood up by flaky agents a few times, which had us pretty worried about our ability to find someone to work with that we could trust. In walks Subhi, who we knew from a neighboring sale and always connected with on a personal level. Long story short, Subhi helped us land our dream home in a super competitive market through an *extremely* tight window. No matter what hour of the day we had issues/questions/concerns, he was there for us 100%, either dropping by or texting back within minutes. We stay in touch to this day, as he's just a great person with a good heart. Hard to put into words how much our family loves Subhi. He's an absolute mensch, and I couldn't recommend his services highly enough. We'll definitely work with him again down the road!

Subhi has a great network of people in SF and has a deep understanding of the market and the real estate business.

Subhi is absolutely amazing and the best partner you could ask for when buying a home in SF. I had spoken with a few other agents that I found through referrals. They were unreliable and once they knew my price range I felt they weren't very interested in working with me. I decided to go to Yelp and found Subhi. I wasn't confident that he would want to work with me due to my price range, but he gave me 100% from the first minute we spoke. Subhi is passionate about his work and truly interested in every detail of every house he looks at. He has a great network of people in SF and has a deep understanding of the market and the real estate business. Buying a house in SF is challenging and we were frustrated along the way, but Subhi kept moving us forward. Whenever we lost a bid, he quickly moved on to the next thing and kept a positive attitude. He was straightforward and gave us clear/ honest expectations and tons of education every step of the way. He was flexible and worked around our schedules. Subhi listened to what we liked/disliked along the way, and eventually led us to our new home. I would recommend him to anyone. You won't be disappointed.

Excellent negotiator!

My partner and I recently had an excellent real estate experience with Subhi. We wanted to sell our condo in San Francisco, and buy an upgrade in the same area. We met Subhi at a random open house and immediately knew that his expert knowledge of San Francisco would get both these goals accomplished. As a buyer's agent, Subhi analyzed our needs and toured us around to several likely properties. From there we were rapidly able to pin down a good prospect. Subhi negotiated very well, and we were able to get what we were looking for and are very happy with the purchase. As a seller's agent, Subhi brought in and coordinated a team of excellent tradespeople to renovate our original condo. Staging, photography, and marketing were worked out to a beautiful effect. After a few open houses and private showings, the right buyer was found. Again, Subhi worked very hard, negotiated brilliantly, and we sold at a very good price! Subhi also made sure most of the necessary documents could be processed electronically, which was very convenient to our busy schedules. He also updated us at every step of the way. All in all, Subhi Barakat is a very fine real estate and business professional and an awfully nice person. We would highly recommend him and APR to anyone for their real estate needs.

SO accessible and reliable... a true advocate for your best interests!

I've been meaning to write this for a long time. Subhi is amazing! We were first time home buyers and were referred to him by a friend, and quickly realized how lucky we were to be referred to him! He is SO accessible and reliable, goes out of his way to get to know you and what you are looking for, and is, most importantly, a true advocate for your best interests - VERY important qualities in the San Francisco real estate market. When we were about to put in an offer on a single-family home in Inner Sunset after looking for only 2 weeks (and right before we were going to deliver our first child), he encouraged us to step back and not rush the process. At that point, we immediately realized that he had our best interests at heart. But it didn't stop there. Subhi was a true advocate throughout the closing period, calling the sellers and our mortgage broker repeatedly to make sure that everything happened honestly and on time. When we had questions about the specifics of our loan, he ran them by another mortgage broker who was able to give us advice and guidance as well. When we finally received our keys and moved into our new place, we realized that there was no way it could have happened so smoothly without his guidance. And, even after moving in, he still checks in with us to make sure everything is going well. I can't stop talking about Subhi to all of my friends who are looking to buy here in San Francisco, and am trying to convince them to drop their real estate agents and work with him! If you don't have a real estate agent yet, please don't miss out on working with him!

Always a prompt response to any of our text msgs or emails.

We had great experience working with Subhi while buying a condo in San Francisco. Always a prompt response to any of our text msg or emails. It's a very competitive market in SF to buy a place. Only an experienced agent like Subhi can make it happen to buy a place within budget in San Francisco ... Thank you so much for your hard work ... We will definitely work with him again.

He brought in an outstanding team to assist with staging, moving & storage, photography, and marketing and made the process of getting our home prepared for the market flow effortlessly.

Where do we begin? My wife and I had a great experience with Subhi. When we decided to put it on the market this spring for a work-related relocation, he was the first person that came to mind. Subhi has expert knowledge of the market and the neighborhood. From the minute we began listing with Subhi, he made us feel as if we were his only clients. He brought in an outstanding team to assist with staging, moving & storage, photography, and marketing and made the process of getting our home prepared for the market flow effortlessly. It is amazing how hard Subhi worked to get the perfect buyer and the best price. He held frequent weekend open houses, in addition to multiple private showings during the week. He was always reachable by phone and gave us updates daily when it came down to the wire. Subhi and his team made sure all of the necessary documents could be processed electronically so that we didn't have to leave home or work to sign, fax, scan etc., which worked out well with our schedules. We could not recommend a better person to represent you and your home. Thank you Subhi for a seamless home sale, and even more importantly, for helping my family make the smoothest transition possible. If you're looking to list with an exceptional realtor who works on a highly skilled team, definitely keep Subhi Barakat at APR in mind.
