In the current market, you need a good agent to get the house you want.
With his local knowledge, Thomas help us narrow down our criteria and focus on what matters. He know the Santa Clara and near by area like the back of his hand.
We then set out with a clear target which help us locate what we are looking for very quickly. We where very worry that we will not get the house because we offer too low. Thomas help us (with his close relationship with other agents) get a very competitive offer price (which is over 50K lower than what I feel we need to get the house).
Bottom line, he help us get the house we want with a very competitive price. That is what count, but the whole process is also stress free and comfortable, with Thomas holding our hands along the way. He is friendly and easy to talk to. He help us with the final inspection and all matter (small or big) through to closing. He even give help and advise on the required repair and other small things.
When we share our experience with our friend, no one believe us that buy a house can be so stress free (in this market).
Thomas is very sincere and dedicated Realtor. He went out of the way to help us get the house we wanted as getting it was a bit of a challenge. He is also very resourceful and was able to guide us through the process. I recommend him to anyone that I know looking for home in his market vicinity. Their team is super responsive. This is the best experience in my life so far dealing with a Realtor.
In the beginning, Thomas and his team spent a good amount of time painting a realistic picture of what the housing market looked like in our area before we even started looking. They never sugar coated or promised anything. My wife and I appreciated this because we knew that they had our best interest at heart. Thomas never once pushed us to bid on a house that he did not think was going to be good for us. On the contrary, with regards to the houses that we were really interested in, he went above an beyond to try and make the most competitive offer possible. This was not just with the offer amount, but he made the effort to meet the selling agent the day of the offer date to express our interests. This also allowed him to gauge how much interest the property was attracting. Thomas is one of the main reasons why my wife and i were able to win the house we own today! As a plus, he speaks Chinese which was very helpful with talking to other agents as well as my parents. Wouldn’t hesitate to use him and his team for the Silicon Valley. Highly recommended.
Thomas was very accommodating, resourceful, and helpful. I would recommend using him as a real estate agent, and this is why:
When we had first thought about purchasing a house, Thomas and his partner sat us down to give us a realistic idea about the kind of house we could afford in the neighborhoods that we liked. He was very familiar with the Santa Clara area and used his knowledge to help us consider some key facts that we might not have thought about otherwise (such as the better residential pockets in the area and parts of the region that had more traffic than others).
My husband works until pretty late into the evening, and Thomas was very willing to accommodate our schedules. He spent many late hours showing us houses and even brought us back on the weekends so we could see what the homes were like during the day. He was very generous with his time.
As first-time homebuyers, we had many questions about everything. There wasn’t a single disclosure or inspection that we didn’t have queries about. Thomas was very resourceful and made a point to get our questions answered. When he didn’t have an answer, he researched the matter and got back to us in a very timely manner. In fact, we didn’t have to follow up on anything because Thomas was so good about getting back to us. Thomas was also quite resourceful when we perused houses that needed remodeling work. He always gave us an idea of how much the renovations would cost so that we’d have a general idea of whether or not the house would fit our budget.
Thomas was very equitable and professional, and it was clear that he had our best interests at heart. For instance, he provided very honest feedback when we looked at properties that he didn’t think were good fits for us. It was easy to sense that he wasn’t just trying to make a quick sale; instead, he wanted to help us get a property that we would be happy with. We ultimately ended up with a house that had the number of rooms and bathrooms that we were looking for — and most importantly, it was close to our family, which was our top priority.
Everyone know the current market is tough for the buyers. I had previously work with three other agent before I met Thomas, with house prices going up every time I check, I am desperate. I know I need to get a house soon or soon I will not be able to afford one.
Every house that fit my criteria attract over 20 offers, I know I have my work cut out for me. I am resort to bite the bullet and offer way over the market price to secure a deal. That would have cost me a lot of money but seems like that is the only way to go. Meeting Thomas changed my plan. He help me formulate a practical strategy that would get me the house I want and beating the competing offers. We have the house I want and I am only paying a little over the average market price. I am very happy and grateful for Thomas’ help.
Thomas know the Santa Clara area very well and he is well connected, these sure help in forging the correct offer and identify the correct property to aim for.
He offer help and support from the beginning to the end of the whole process. Pointing to things that we should pay attention to. We are very satisfied with the service we received and would recommend Thomas to all of our friends.
Worked with Thomas to find our home. Very friendly and honest. Went above and beyond to help us get the home to start our new lives.
I met Thomas at a open house and he was very friendly and inviting. He kept our line of communication open by sending me weekly updates of new homes available off-market and on-market. When I reached out to him, he was very responsive an we got started right away. Thomas is a very hands-on real estate agent; if I needed to see a house quickly because offers were being reviewed next day, he was able to schedule a time the same day for me to look at it. He has a great inner-circle working with him. From the time I first saw my house to the time I got the keys was about 3 weeks. This is a incredibly short amount of time to close but Thomas and his team made the process seem smooth and painless. I would highly recommend Thomas to anyone looking for a house to buy in the south bay. He really has your best interest in mind and will do everything he can to try to help you find a place as quick as possible and get a price as close to market value.
Thomas is a great and honest Realtor. He knows Santa Clara market very well, and he is able to help us win the bid among multiple highly competitive offers. Thomas is very resourceful, and is able to respond to my questions with minimal delay. His team provides lots of suggestions on house remodeling and fix. It is truly a pleasant experience to work with Thomas.
Thomas helps my husband and I to get our well-pleased house using his expertise. We are very impressed with his patient advise and professional guidance. He thinks of customer, knows market a lot, give any feedback timely. We feel lucky to meet Thomas to be our buyer agent. And we enjoyed when we work together with him. Finally, we get our house, and every step goes very smoothly with his help. I want to say Thank you very much Thomas. If my friend look for property, I will strongly recommend him.
