Creating investment value in Real Estate:

3150 Clay Street, a bi-level condominium, went on the market for $1,575,000 and had its first open house on Sunday, April 29, 2012 to great fan fare. The interest in the residence was very enthusiastic and the realtor David Parry, at McGuire, received multiple offers considerably over the asking price. The property generated far more online viewings then all of their other listings combined with our client exclaiming “the numbers are off the charts for us”.

3150 Clay Street Project
The goal was to locate a pair of flats in Pacific Heights that was conducive to Gary Jerabeck’s clients’ needs for both their residence and for a potential resale investment. They found that perfect property in a pair of single level Edwardian flats in Pacific Heights.
Gary and his clients embarked on a two year journey of designs, permitting and construction. A top floor was added to the building while the basement level was developed into a 4 car garage and living space. The results culminated in two wonderful bi-level condominiums.

This stud to stud renovation included full seismic upgrades, new utilities, new foundation, steel moment frames, radiant floor heating, an elevator and top of the line finishes and architectural details throughout both units. The property emulates the charm and details of yesteryear but with all of the modern upgrades that are expected today.

The top unit will be fully appreciated by the clients as their urban retirement home, while the bottom unit will be sold in order to meet the objective of developing the property to its full potential investment value. Overall, this project was extremely successful in meeting all the owner’s needs.

Our Firm’s goal is to develop architecture to its ultimate aesthetic, functional and investment value while reflecting each client’s unique needs and aspirations.
