This home I sold in Fremont for $540,000. This one was a doozy! A double wamy with a short sale listing and a FHA loan…fun, fun. This really nice and cute couple was a lot of fun to work with despite the fact that this transaction was a pretty tough one toward the last few weeks. I do have to say...

  This sale was a condo in City Heights on the 8th floor and is a corner unit, which is a very desirable location in this high rise with a great view. This was also a short sale transaction with a very nice investor couple who actually lives in Hong Kong. They came to San Jose for their one and o...

  This couple was really cool and a lot of fun to work with during the process. They actually called me to represent them on this particular home because they wanted a buyer’s agent for this short sale transaction. They were open to viewing other homes, but this was kind of ‘the one’ for them. We...

  This buyer is a really nice young single man buying his first home. His search took quite awhile because he was looking mostly at short sales and foreclosures and ran into a lot of competition with multiple offers…yes…multiple offers in ‘this market’. After months of making offers and looking f...

  I sold this buyer a home a few years back when she bought with her sister. Over the years they both got married, had children, and now she and her husband were looking for a larger home with a really good school district. The search was a long one and it seemed every home they really liked and ...

  This sale is yet another short sale transaction which took 7 months to close! The buyers for this home have the patience of saints! Seriously! I think this has been the most torturous transaction for any of my short sale buyers thus far, but the buyers were extremely patient and remarkably mell...

  I sold this home to a really sweet first time FHA buyer who was  very patient through the waiting process. This sale was a short sale that took about 2 months for short sale approval and then another month to close the transaction, so not too bad. For the most part the short sale process and tr...

  This buyer is a young single woman and just the sweetest and most energetic person. She was a lot of fun to work with in this transaction who made me smile and laugh a lot. Just a bit of a background on this client is that she was referred to me from a mortgage broker who actually found me on Y...
