Jess is amazing! He's infinitely patient, extremely responsive and a pleasure to work with. Largely because of his suggestions and persistence I was able to bid and close on my dream property. Don't hesitate, Jess rocks!

Jess was incredible to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable about the San Francisco market and very efficient. Always available and very helpful through every stage of buying a home. Could not ask for a better Realtor®. We hope we can work with him again in the future!

— Buyer

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
In the chaotic jumble that is the current SF housing market, there may be no agent better able to help you navigate the waters and keep a steady hand on the tiller than Jess Williams. Our experience couldn’t have been better. Jess had valuable input at every stage of the game.

— Chris T.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Jess is an exceptional real estate agent. I tend to be pretty picky and frequently feel like there’s always a better option out there, but with Jess, I’m completely confident! What makes him so truly unique is that he combines genuinely caring about his clients and finding them the perfect home with also being incredible at his job. You’d be lucky to work with him.

— Sam M.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Jess is a miracle worker! He was always attentive, timely in his response and made me feel like his only client even if I wasn't. He knows the city very well is able to provide great feedback on how to get the slightest competitive edge. As everyone knows, you need every advantage in San Francisco to win the bid. The only regret I have is not working with Jess sooner!

— Kamali J.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
I had the pleasure of working with Jess to buy my new home and sell the old one. I honestly think that I wouldn't have been able to buy my new dream home and sell the old one at the price that exceeded my expectations without his help. He is very knowledgeable of the Bay Area market, professional, communicative, and gives honest and straightforward advice when needed. I can't recommend him enough for tho...

— Buyer

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Jess Williams was absolutely wonderful throughout the process of selling my home. I live in Europe, yet was never once worried that I wasn't in the country during the marketing (or that I've never even met Jess), selling and/or closing of the property. Jess even called me while he was vacationing in Europe to answer my questions regarding the disclosures. He was responsive, friendly, personable, and prof...

— Seller

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
We cannot recommend Jess highly enough. The first time we met, he told us we would find our perfect home. Less than three months later, we closed on a beautiful house in our dream neighborhood. As first-time homebuyers, Jess made the entire process easy and fun - something I never imagined I'd say about home buying in San Francisco. He was always available, went above and beyond to understand what we wer...

— Buyer

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
If I could give Jess Williams 10 stars, I would. Jess helped me with an extremely complex sale in one of the most highly regulated markets anywhere: San Francisco. His expert knowledge and keen understanding of the process helped me keep sane while the official machinery ground down both seller and potential buyers. Jess was at every step dependable, knowledgeable, and engaged. Jess Williams earns my hig...

— Seller

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Jess went above and beyond to make my purchase a reality. I knew the entire time that Jess had my best interest in mind which was really important as this was my first purchase. When we saw apartments that were not the right fit for me, he was the first person to point out what was lacking and how I could do better which was really reassuring. He was always at my side when I needed him and made the whole...

— Elliot S.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Jess goes above and beyond the logical limits of his responsibility and steps fully into taking care of his clients – from finding the place they want to move into, to making sure they have everything they need. Jess reviewed disclosure packages with me page by page, at every turn made me feel like he was putting my interests above his own, and answered emails around the clock to make sure I had anything...

— Dushka Z.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Jess helped me sell my condo (which he also helped me buy 5 years ago!). I interviewed several agents and Jess’s approachability won me over. I was comfortable being honest about my wants and constraints, and I trusted his expertise without ever feeling intimidated. I was trying to sell a condo that could have benefitted from professional staging but I was very tight on cash. Jess was very flexible and h...

— Jing J.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Jess is the absolute best. We just purchased our second home in San Francisco with Jess and cannot recommend him enough. Jess really takes the time to get to know you and what you are looking for. Throughout the entire process, Jess never rushed or pushed us in any way. He is very thoughtful and knows the market extremely well. We purchased our first home 5 years ago with Jess and were so happy to work w...

— Sarah B.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Jess came as a recommendation and from the day we met him, he did not disappoint. He started off by sharing detailed statistics on the market and providing an overview of the buying experience in the bay area. With limited inventory, multiple offers and so many neighborhoods to choose from, it's critical to have someone that has local knowledge. Jess brings that experience and if you want an honest opini...

— Paragma N.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Everyone knows the housing market in San Francisco is brutal. From finding an agent, home loan, contractors, to the home itself. We went off a recommendation from good friends to set up a meeting with Jess, and they were so right. We first met Jess at one of the Paragon offices, frightened and having no idea what to expect. He was super sweet but very honest from the beginning. He did a great job of pati...

— Haena K.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
We couldn’t recommend Jess more highly. We have now purchased and sold a place with Jess. He helped us get the best prices we could reasonably expect on both sides of the transaction. He handles as much of the work as a real estate agent can, which limits the amount of time you need to put in as much as possible. He is an absolute pleasure to work with. As more context, we are a busy family with two chil...

— Sanjay N.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Jess has been so incredibly amazing to work with from start to finish. We greatly appreciate transparency and being as honest as possible and Jess was that and so much more. He was so kind, easy to work with, has a lovely personality and a great sense of humor. Throughout our entire house hunting process, he has gone above and beyond to support us on our search to find our first home. Buying a home as ma...

— Violet L.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Choosing Jess to represent us in the sale of our condo was by far the best decision we’ve made all year. We honestly don’t think anyone could have done a better job and cannot recommend him highly enough. We found out firsthand exactly why Jess is consistently rated one of the best in the business and has such an impressive track record: He gets things done. “Moving is stressful enough. As soon as you ha...

My Approach

I’m Jess Williams, a community-minded San Francisco REALTOR®️. 

Let me tell you how my approach is different.

Bringing Humanity to the Numbers Game

Buying or selling a house is one of the most momentous and exciting milestones in your life, so it should be personal and fun. I have years of experience and the textbook approaches down pat, but I put people first. My ability to form meaningful relationships with vendors, agents, and clients alike (see: my unparalleled network) is how I get you what you want, faster. I’m an open book of knowledge and bad jokes, and I’ll guide you seamlessly through every step of an other-wise nuanced, demanding, and esoteric process as your coach. I have exclusive access to analytics and real-time market data that allow me to get you the highest possible price if you’re selling, and to give you crucial insights into neighborhood trends if you’re buying. Beyond my resources, I have an exceptional ability to interpret data and communicate with you effectively and in a conversational manner; having an agent who is both intuitive and data-critical to walk you through nuances within the numbers is paramount to your success in buying or selling a home, and I love close-reading between the lines.

Not Your Grandma’s Digital Marketing

I’m a technophile. Contrary to the stereotype that we realtors are computer-illiterate dinosaurs, I’ve always been an early adopter who loves a solid software suite and the advent of social media as means to connect people. When you’re selling, I have a personal marketing team that builds and executes strategic, innovative, and data-driven advertising plans across multiple mediums, tailored specifically to your needs to ensure maximum exposure for your listing. You’ll get a customized proposal from the moment we meet, and regular metrics once we get to work so that you can be involved in the process every step of the way. Plus, as part of Top Agent Network, I have exclusive opportunities to drive interest to your home by pre-showing off-market.

Results with Integrity

In the end, results are what matter, and my attention to people and their needs pays: 9 out of 10 of my most recent buyers have landed their dream home on their first and only offer because I know how important that emotional investment is, and all but one of my recent sellers have closed within 24 days. While I’m a tiger when it comes to nail-ing down a deal on your behalf, I’m also your most loyal, down-to-earth advisor, committed to honesty and sincerity. My goal is to empower you to hone in on what you want and enjoy yourself while doing it. After the first time we buy or sell a house together, I’m willing to bet you’ll call me for your second and third adventure, too. 

With me representing you, you don’t have to settle. With me, you will win. And with me, it’s going to be a lot faster than you think, and it’s going to be a lot of fun. 

Work With Jess

I take pride in always providing exceptional service with diligent attention to detail to build authentic relationships with my clients. If you are looking to partner with a San Francisco real estate agent who will always put your needs first, let's see how we can work together!
