UPDATE MAY 2021 – The information in this post is no longer current. In early 2020 the National Association of Realtors changed the way real estate is marketed and sold. Making it much more difficult to no longer place listings on the open market. The business model for the below company has drastically changed and we no longer recommend using them. With that said, we will leave this here for you to make up your own mind. We are happy to discuss the best ways to find off-market listings and have covered some tips in a more recent blog post here.
Happy reading and happy hunting….
Well, we now have a way for you to get a piece of that pie.
Real estate in the Bay Area is as competitive as it gets, so the less players on the field, the better your chances of coming out on top. At Legacy Real Estate we strive to give you that edge and can now offer direct early access to Private Listings so you can score that winning goal. www.aalto.com/legacyrealestate
Enter Aalto and Legacy Real Estate.
We partnered with Aalto to give you exclusive access to off-market real estate in San Francisco and Marin. These are private listings that may never make it to the public MLS and the radar of most home buyers. Aalto remains in stealth mode having just launched in the Bay Area but we expect it to continue to grow and the number of listings to expand accordingly.
So sign up now, take a look, share with your friends / family / neighbors and get your eyeballs on homes that no one else will see.

What’s the advantage of private listings for you, the buyer?
Less competition, more choice, and a direct line to a home sale that avoids the MLS, open houses and the open market.
What’s the advantage of private listings for you, the seller?
It’s a great way to test the waters for pricing as well as avoid what some see as the hassle of showing your home to a lot of people. Sellers can continue to enjoy their living space while their home is quietly marketed. No need for open houses, meeting your neighbors, and the uproar of staging.
Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or would like more information on how this plays out on the local level.
