Lowrie MacLean was our agent for our San Francisco first time home purchase and we highly recommend her as a knowledgeable agent with a warm and positive personality. Lowrie was also my mother-in-law's agent which was how we originally met her. It was an easy decision to ask her to assist us when we were ready to enter the real estate market since my mother in law's experience had been so positive and fruitful. (She now has a great condo in SF). Our whole experience was equally positive as Lowrie listened to our needs and was always very responsive and professional. From the viewing of properties and writing of offers, to the contract negotiations, she offered guidance without pressure. She continuously followed up with the seller's agents and kept us informed about all the details. We originally bid on a short sale condo in which she explained risks and benefits of such a purchase. When the bank came back asking for more money, we decided to walk away and then found a TIC that we liked better. She was able to change gears quickly and helped us thru the TIC process, including explaining TIC risks/benefits and navigating us through the tricky TIC agreement negotiations. There were also some personal loans to sort thru. At the end she told us that ours was one of the most complicated deals she had dealt with yet this was not apparent to us while we were going thru the process as her patience was always abundant. Her strong relationships and good contacts with all the many players (seller's agents, mortgage brokers, attorneys, contractors, etc.) show that she has the experience needed to purchase real estate successfully. We would definitely use her again.Vanessa
"A very late but big thank you for all of your hard work in helping me find my condo! It is so hard to believe it has been an entire year since I bought it (and I still need to find some pictures for my walls :)Candy
"Just a note to let you know how fun it was to work with you, how much patience you had in helping me look and how nice you were to help me through the process. You were so nice to my son and daughter-and-law with all of their comments and suggestions throughout the 8 months of looking - I'm sure they will be calling you when they decide to buy."
"So, when I'm looking for my ultimate retirement cottage in a few years, you'll also be the first person I will call to help me find the perfect place (with a little garden too) once again.
"Thanks for all of your help - I love my new home!"
I met Lowrie though an open house on Union Street and immediately knew I wanted to partner with her in my search for a second home in San Francisco. Her preparation, hard-work, follow-through, and consistent focus on executing every aspect of the sale was exactly what was needed to secure my new home on Telegraph Hill. She was able to beat three cash offers through her persistence and dedication and should used as the benchmark in this industry. Lowrie and I still keep in contact today, am very fortunate that we crossed paths and without hesitation I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in San Francisco. -Christine PuccioChrissyChristine Puccio
"Lowrie MacLean was a delight to work with. She is diligent, extremely thorough and very hard working. When you work with Lowrie, you know she is working for you and with your best interest in mind. I never had the feeling that she was aggressively trying to make a sale. She is patient and understanding and I think she makes an effort to really understand her client and their needs.Suzanne Greischel, AIA
"Due to her past experience in Interior Design she is exceptionally helpful in evaluating a project and it's design potential. She has an excellent understanding of construction as well. Her ability to see all aspects of a real estate transaction is unique. My real estate purchase was very complicated and she made sure that every possible question was covered and answered.
"I have the utmost confidence in Lowrie and I would highly recommend her."
Lowrie MacLean is a quintessential realtor and most trusted partner. She knows San Francisco inside and out, is an expert at capitalizing on what a property has to offer, has an outstanding aesthetic and is a fantastic negotiator. She helped sell my mom's house in Pacific Heights earlier this year (2017) and because of her expertise and commitment we were able to sell it after just a few short weeks on the market with a short 5 day close. Lowrie was an invaluable resource and support throughout the process. She made the entire transaction feel so easy. Her guidance on pricing our home was a significant contributor to it's ultimate sale way over asking. She helped make my life so easy because of the resources she was able to help us get for staging, dealing with unexpected old house situations (tank removals) and was always incredibly responsive and resourceful. She is on top of all details to the smallest, handling each with finesse and care. She put everything into the sale of my mom's home, and while I know she was busy with lots of other transactions at the time, she made me feel like I was her only client. I am still amazed at how easy the process was; Lowrie transformed an experience I had been dreading for years into one that was totally satisfying, gratifying, and rewarding. And on top of all that, Lowrie is really fun to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend Lowrie, I am a HUGE fan! - Jeanie Fay-SnowJeanie Fay Snow

Thanks! It has honestly been an pleasure working with you, Lowrie. Thanks so much for guiding us through our first home buying experience, for pushing us to check out 1406 in the first place, and for generally making the past few months and this entire process pretty darn enjoyable.
