Excelsior is Ready For the Spotlight
Excelsior, in the southeastern part of the City, is a neighborhood full of diversity and contrasts. Those looking for change coexist with traditionalists who prefer that things stay the same. Young families live side-by-side with longtime residents.

Once home to the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia, Excelsior hosts the annual “Jerry Day” Festival at the delightful Jerry Garcia Amphitheater in McClaren Park. The 56-acre Crocker-Amazon park offers basketball, tennis and bocce ball as well as baseball and soccer fields.

Although it is less than three miles from the heart of the Mission District, real estate prices here are on the lower end of San Francisco’s spectrum. The average price is $580,000.

Excelsior is a neighborhood in a state of transition, and its neighborhood association is working diligently to attract new residents and visitors while maintaining the charm that has defined Excelsior. Merchants hope to entice new businesses with the more affordable and available retail space. Pete Whitcomb, born and raised in Excelsior and owner of the iconic Pissed Off Pete’s Tavern said, “Let’s do this. Let’s make this place nice.”
Come Home to Excelsior!
Looking to get onboard with an up-and-coming neighborhood before everyone else catches on? The Excelsior is full of charming homes at down-to-Earth prices, and is within a few short miles of the uber-trendy Mission District.

After undergoing a complete remodel in 2013, the residence at 171 Vienna Street is now on the market for $750,000. This three-bedroom, two-bath abode boasts a view of the city lights from the living room, shows like brand new and is just now on the market.

This gem of a property, 735 Madrid Street, has three bedrooms and two baths, including a master suite that opens to a lovely landscaped yard. Lots of improvements plus spectacular views enhance the package, and it is listed at $699,000.

This attractive one-bedroom, one bath home at 180 Vienna Street was built in 1904. Panoramic views of the City lights and the downtown area add to the charm. The yard is level and large, and the one-car garage has extra storage. Listing price is $369,900.

Now, the World’s Most Dynamic City
If there were a list of Top 10 Cities to Make Top 10 Lists, you can be certain that San Francisco would appear on said list, and most likely somewhere near the top. This time around, we’ve been deemed one of the world’s “most dynamic” cities.

Jones Lang Lasalle, a Chicago-based commercial real estate firm, recently debuted its Community Momentum Index, designed to measure factors such as infrastructure, connectivity and innovation in major urban locales. Points were scored for sales of commercial properties, growing consumer base and upcoming global events as well as construction, investments, technology, university presence and myriad factors that add to a city’s charisma.

“By taking a unique look at the combination of short-term variables and sustainable long-term characteristics,” said Jeremy Kelly, JLL’s director of global research, “the City Momentum Index provides a look into underlying city dynamics, adaptability and real estate market characteristics.”

Topping that list? Why, San Francisco, of course. Other U.S. cities include New York (#6), Austin, TX (#7), San Jose (#9), Los Angeles (#15), Boston, MA (#17) and Seattle, WA (#18).

Nobody has it better than we do.
