A WORD FROM CLIMB

July is a month of celebration. And the celebration of my ongoing love of summer. Growing up on the East Coast, summer represented steaks on the grill, tennis matches, Long Beach Island, and shark fishing off Montauk. While San Francisco can often feel like winter, I choose to think about my warmer moments in the city—baseball games at AT&T Park, Hog Island oysters at the Ferry Building, and more street festivals. This month, the ideas of lazy summer afternoons can be spent idyllically in some of San Francisco’s most desirable homes. Our cover home is the penthouse of 200 Brannan, complete with 2-car parking. Also in South Beach, the Best of the Bay condo is most exemplified by a gorgeous Art Deco designer home at Portside II. Our featured agent is Matt Finley, seen his with his lovely wife Dawn during the Giants’ triumphant World Series win. We also discover Soma’s hidden gem, South Park. Tucked away amid 3rd Street and Brannan, South Park feels like a bit of Boston right here in San Francisco. Our Friends of Climb features satisfied buyers who worked with San Francisco native Monica Burns. Seen with her at our annual Holiday Party, they found the most perfect home in Bernal Heights. All of us here at Climb wish you enjoy and celebrate the endless days of summer ahead. Here’s to summer.

“Monica exceeded our expectations by far as a realtor in so many ways. She was always consistent in her efforts to find us the “right place”. We truly appreciate Monica’s sincerity, pleasant demeanor, knowledge of the SF real estate market, and most importantly her patience and honesty.” Shilpa and Troy Naik purchased their very first 2-bedroom home in Bernal Heights through Climb’s Monica Burns.

“The Butler & The Chef is a charming little French bistro in South Park that serves up classic dishes like onion soup and croque monsieur. They also have a great looking brunch menu.”

“One of my favorite things in South Park is the cute Public Bike store. Founded by Rob Forbes of DWR, these are utilitarian bikes modeled after those in Amsterdam. I can’t wait to get one!”

“How very SF—a public park with free Wi-Fi. In addition to being a charming park, this place has metal climbing structures, sliding poles and swingsets big enough for adults to enjoy as well.”
