San Francisco, CA – April 28, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Glen Park News, a quarterly publication distributed in the Glen Park neighborhood, has added a new real estate column to its regular format. Bill Berry, a real estate agent with Zephyr Real Estate in San Francisco will write the column, sharing his expertise and insights on the real estate market in San Francisco.
Berry has been in the real estate profession for more than 12 years. He also has an award-winning background in graphic design. He is an active volunteer and fundraiser for his daughter’s school and several other Bay Area non-profit organizations, including Project Inform, an advocacy agency representing people who are HIV-positive.
Berry’s first column debuted in the Spring Edition of the Glen Park News, which is out now. The article charts homes recently bought and sold in the neighborhood, listing vs. selling prices and how long the properties were on the market. He shares his perception of the market, comparing the energy of the economy to last month, last quarter and last year. Advice is offered on how and when to put a home on the market, how to set expectations, how to prepare the property and an overview of interest rates, tax cuts and other factors to be considered. Even more interesting are the market trends and economic forecasts he offers.
Glen Park is in the central portion of San Francisco, just south of Noe Valley. Known as “The Village” among locals, the neighborhood has a small-town feel with an active neighborhood association as evidenced by the quarterly newspaper.
“We are proud of Bill and his contribution to the community in his professional capacity and in his volunteerism,” Randall Kostick, Chief Operating Officer of Zephyr, commented. “His contribution to the News will be an invaluable tool for buyers and sellers alike,” he added.
