I first knew Chris in 1980 when he offered me an apartment building, which I bought. I'd been looking for a broker, and found that he knew more about real estate legal matters and financial opportunities than persons I met in larger "franchise" offices in Sacramento and San Francisco.
Chris is wholly trustworthy, straight forward, patient and superbly we'll informed about San Francisco real estate. He's still my broker. I get letters and calls from broker-hunters and am happy to tell them "I've found my man.
In 1973, I began investing in multi unit residential apartment buildings-a long held passion that I possesed at a very early age. During the Summer of 1978(approx.) I was introduced to Chris Ferrigno concerning an apartment building exchange.
The transaction fell through, but my relationship with Chris continued to grow for the past 27 years to date. We did developments in Hawaii as well as San Francisco and I purchased many buildings with Chris as my Broker and eventual partner. It has been one very interesting journey and I must say, a real pleasure and delight. I look forward to many more years of successful investing and friendship with a topnotch friend, mentor and above all else a decent and trustworthy human being.
I was very fortunate to have met Chris over 20 years ago and he has guided my real estate investment decisions ever since. His personal involvement in his clients' decisions and his tenacious spirit have made him invaluable in my success in real estate.
In October of 2011, I became the executor of the Estate of Donald A. Casper. Chris Ferrigno had been chosen by Don, before he suddenly passed away, to work on the sale of 249-251-253 Diamond Street, having ﬁrst listed it with Paciﬁc Union. The transaction was extremely complicated, involving tenant buyouts (which Chris personally ﬁnanced) and building updates, all of which allowed Don to make this a salable TIC property. I was so impressed with the abilities of Chris and Lalena Goard, that I selected them as the listing agents for a TIC property at 780-782-784 Green Street (a 3-unit Edwardian building in North Beach) which was in the family for over 50 years, This also involved sensitive negotiations with tenants, buyouts and building updates. The result was a proﬁtable outcome for our family. I would highly recommend Ferrigno Real Estate.
I have been a Ferrigno Real Estate client since the mid-1980's. In recent years Ferrigno Real Estate has represented me in 5 different TIC projects (3 6-unit buildings, a 4-unit building & a 2-unit building) from start to ﬁnish. Chris & Lalena are extremely professional and well versed in the intricacies of the San Francisco TIC market. They guided me through the acquisition of the buildings and had a great marketing program...I was so impressed by their business acumen and personable style...as a very sophisticated Broker/Investor myself I was given advice beyond my own personal knowledge that was invaluable in closing the deals! I consider Chris & Lalena top notch Real Estate Brokers and would highly recommend their ofﬁce for any Real Estate needs!
