I have been a realtor for 24 years and my office is located in downtown San Mateo.
There are a wealth of opportunities in the market right now, but I would need to know your specifics before approaching the right solution for you. Are you considering units, and if so, do you plan to live in one? Or, would you like to start a portfolio of single family homes?
I would be happy to discuss your plans and develop our strategy to make it happen for you.

As pointed out, any good agent/broker will work with a serious buyer, and we buy and sell investment properties ourselves on a regular basis so I'm glad to help out. You need to know that down payment requirements are significantly higher for non-occupied properties, so the first step is to figure out what you can qualify for. Then interview a few agents who have expertise in this area and pick the one that is right for you.
And It is hard to get positive cash flow, but not impossible. Another possibility is to buy a multi-unit and occupy one of the units. This would allow for lower down payment requirement and the rental income could offset or subsidize your mortgage.

Depending on your down payment, it's very difficult to find cash flow in SF and the Peninsula.

As an owner you'd save on the management overhead, tenant placement costs, and periodic vacancy as compared to having a rental property. Plus, once you get yourself set, you can still take your monthly savings to finance incremental rental properties.
