Client Testimonials

“If you need a realtor, Marco is the man! Marco was a great asset to me when I purchased my first home in the Bay area. I was very specific in what I wanted and he was able to sift out and find me the right house. He was very flexible, working with me throughout the day and night on MY schedule. I was coming from out of town and he was able to accommodate my schedule at all times. I think he went above and beyond his call of duty. He made my buying experience painless, and for that, I am grateful. Highly recommended–he’ll get the job done.”
— Dr. Andy Lee, Martinez, CA

“I definitely recommend Marco as your realtor! He was quick to recognize my style/taste and requirements and he made the buying process short and painless. Marco added personal touches to every step of the way: he reached out and delivered the offer letter to the selling agent directly, advised me to include a personal statement to the package, and followed up with the selling agent and/or mortgage broker to ensure things are moving along smoothly. He even responded to emails while on vacation. And after escrow closed, he would reach out to the selling agent if I had questions, give me remodeling suggestions and take me shopping for materials!

“Marco also has a great and knowledgable mortgage broker team behind the scenes supporting the entire loan process. It was truly a pleasure working with the team. If you are looking for a friendly and experienced realtor who will make the home purchase process simple and painless, and be willing to ‘hold your hand’ through the process, then Marco is definitely your guy!”
— Tina Yun, San Francisco/Daly City

“My boyfriend and I had been looking for a home to purchase for the last 9 months. We had many requirements for our future property (location, layout, parking, size, etc.) and in this economy, we knew we were going to have to bid against other potential buyers for every home we liked. After only speaking to Marco once or twice, he understood what we were looking for and wasn’t afraid to push the envelope just to match the criteria we gave him. He is very responsive and easy to communicate with, which is a highly valued asset, especially when making one of the biggest purchases in one’s lifetime. Truth be told, we (my boyfriend and I) found the listing for our new house, but on the same token, once we notified Marco, he went above and beyond to get the house for us. He helped write a letter to the previous owner we bought the house from, summing up the entire initial consultation. It was sincere, honest, and seriously, it was that good. That really did the trick!  We had the fourth highest offer in the pot, and lo and behold, the owner chose us!  

“As justification to all of Marco’s efforts, the selling agent had mentioned to us that he was very detailed and prepared with all of our paperwork in advance for her. He even hand-delivered the documents so that he would have an opportunity to speak to her (the selling agent) about our interest. Marco was very good at updating us throughout the entire process and what to expect up to closing.   

“Work with Marco. You will definitely be in good hands and just have an overall great experience (no pressure, honest, and awesome customer service)!  I would recommend him to others and would use him again for future purchases, for sure!

“Thanks again, Marco…we certainly appreciate all your help and look forward to the next one!”
— Michelle Luong, San Francisco

“Marco helped us with the purchase of our home about 2 and a half years ago. We were very picky, although we weren’t 100% sure of what we wanted regarding location, etc. Marco was very helpful and patient by showing us all of the homes we wanted to look at. We finally found THE ONE, which he showed us before it even went on the market. We immediately put in an offer that day. Marco included a personal letter with the offer letter and the sellers picked us despite having numerous offers and having slightly higher offers. It’s the special touch that Marco does that will get the deal done. Our home already went up in value and I absolutely love my house.  Thank you Marco!”
— Rose Alfonso, Daly City, CA
