Testimonials

Read below to see what my clients have to say about our services!

Sylvia was recommended by a trusted friend when I started house shopping. As we are buyers for the first time, and we are also new to this area, Sylvia explain in great detail about house purchasing process, neighborhoods, and answered our questions patiently, no matter how stupid these questions were!

 

Then she quickly understood the key points in our requirements, searched on the market every week, and show us the houses one by one tirelessly. For each house we visited, she pointed to us what was good, what was not, and what need to pay attend to. We are really impressed by her expertise. When we were satisfied with a house, she gave us objective suggestions about what price we should offer, by studying recently sold homes in the neighborhood, and her understanding of current market trend. When our offer was accepted, she began to cooperate with lender, seller agent and escrow diligently, so we could close in about half a month.

 

Overall, our experience of first house purchase was quite smooth, and we are very satisfied with Sylvia, and would like to recommend to other friends strongly.

I highly recommend Sylvia to those who want great results and be engaged in the home selling process! When I was preparing to sell my home in Fremont, I wanted to hire an agent who would be a partner—honest and communicative —and by whom I would be well represented. Sylvia came to me through a recommendation from another agent. When speaking with her that first time, I quickly observed her high degree of professionalism and savvy understanding of my neighborhood. Once we started working together, she patiently explained to me what to expect of the selling process and answered all of my questions (and there were a lot). She engaged me as a participant in selling my home— I never felt as though I was being directed what to do or that I was simply an observer—by frequently communicating with me, letting me know what was happening and what would come next. This was very important to me, that I was included in the process and not contacted only when “something” came up.

Sylvia has exceeded my expectations in terms of both sales price and a smooth selling process.

Sylvia Wong was my selling agent when I sold my house in Sunnyvale, CA. I found her to be highly capable, responsible and ethical. She has keen insight at the real estate business that she was able to provide fact-based, accurate and trust-worthy information and suggestion. Due to my complicated family situation, Sylvia was demanded very tight timeline and unusually large amount of work under a limited budget and a high expectation on sales price. She listened to my concerns, and worked very hard to get my best possible solution. She successfully exceeded my expectation at the end. I highly recommend Sylvia without reservation.

Sylvia was our selling agent, and she sold our house for a wonderful price in a very short time. When we were looking for the right agent to sell our home of 28 years (in Irvington), we wanted someone who has great business mind and savvy understanding of the local market. She brought her team, including painter and stager, to prepare our house in the eyes of buyers. We had 300+ potential buyers during the 1-weekend open house and she got us 26 offers above our desire price. Sylvia went beyond our expectation and helped us tremendously in dealing with various lenders and got us the best solution. We were so pleased with the outcome.

"Sylvia helped my grandparents purchase a home last year and my grandparents were very happy with her service. When I decided to buy my first home in Fremont, my grandparents highly recommended her to me. Sylvia was very helpful and patient. She showed us many houses, and explained to us the pros and cons of each home. She eventually helped get the house that I want in a short period of time. I would highly recommend her to any buyer

"Dear Sylvia… The painter you recommended did an excellent job! You picked the right color and style of carpet that complemented the décor and elevated the look and style of the entire house. The staging made my house look not just beautiful, but so natural and believable!”

 

“I love the colorful flyer that you prepared for the open house – it totally presents all desirable features of our house to buyers… The mortgage work sheet that you have attached to the flyer certainly would help buyers see how affordable it is.”

"Wow! Thank you so much, for getting us a fantastic offer in less than a week. If I knew it's that easy, I would have sold this house long ago!  I am very, very happy with it!”

First of all, I would want to say that Sylvia has done an outstanding job in presenting her buyer’s offer to us. This has been one of the most difficult real estate transactions that we have ever dealt with since this home has been our pride for many years and it was painstakingly difficult to choose among several families who all love the home. And if it wasn't for her dedication and persistence, we might have chosen a different buyer.

“We have used Sylvia to assist in both purchasing and selling a home. Both transactions went terrific and smooth. She was very helpful with every step. This was the third home we purchased. None of the agents we had used for purchasing our first two houses was as helpful as Sylvia. She guided, advised and supported us through the entire process. We were very happy with Sylvia's work for both the buying and selling of our homes and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a quality real estate agent.”

Sylvia is a strong negotiator. In a very tough market for buyers, she knows what to do to get the house I want, at the price I want. When I found the house that I liked, she was quick to act when She is also a relentless negotiator. She listened well to learn what the sellers need and then worked those terms into an attractive offer with the price I was willing to pay. She also negotiated for repairs for me – almost impossible in the red hot seller’s market. As a result of her effort, I was able to get a beautiful home that I like at below market price.

We found a house that we liked with Sylvia’s help, but had to sell our current home first in order to buy the new home. We were nervous about the situation. She acted quickly to help us prepare the home, take professional pictures, and it on MLS with both pictures and video. Sylvia did all that in 4 days! She held two open houses personally and prepared beautiful brochures to highlight features of our house. On the 5th day, we got multiple offers over the asking price!!

Sylvia helped me buy one condo in a very competitive market this spring. She knows the local market, understands the dynamics in the buying process, very responsive in answering my questions and addressing my concerns. Finally, she was able to negotiate the best deal possible under that market condition. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to any potential property buyers.
