★★★★★ "Calvin Xu was my real estate broker when I bought my two apartments in NYC. One for my primary residence, the other for rental income. My mother found Calvin and we learnt that he is a famed award-winning real estate broker in New York City, with many publicities in the Chinese community. Calvin is very personable, easy to talk to, and treated us like friends and family. When we were buying my primary residence, Calvin carefully listened and observed our needs and wants and showed us that he has a lot of resources in his industry. When my mother was still in the West Coast and had a 3-hour time difference, he always answered every phone and text message promptly no matter how late it was, sometimes even at midnight. When my mother arrived NYC, he showed us that he works with high efficiency and is a highly resourceful broker in a big firm. In just a few days, he showed us almost every property on the market within our budget and meets our needs. During the process of viewing those properties, we enjoyed it very much. I felt that he was a true real estate expert with a lot of professional knowledge. We learned a lot from him about New York real estate along the way. When we selected a duplex two-bedroom Condo and almost ready to sign the contract, my mother found a religious property not far away and it is in the view of this apartment. We believe it is not good Feng Shui to buy near a religious property because it brings lots of mixed energy. At that time, Calvin did not give up on us. Soon he helped us find another apartment in the same area, and it was even nicer, quieter, and with better feng shui, facing a beautiful courtyard, and with a private cabana on the rooftop. Calvin helped us get a big discount! His negotiating ability is first-class, we got it 10% lower than the normal market price. He also helped us with finding mortgage and real estate attorney. Since we were happy working with Calvin, a few months later we went to Calvin to buy another investment property for rental income. He found us an apartment, a property with high return in New York, and we bought it with a lease with tenants already in place. The area where he found this property for us is in Long Island City, a neighborhood with a 11% year-on-year growth. The carrying cost is low because there is a tax abatement for the building. We are grateful to Calvin! He has a wealth of contacts throughout the United States. Recently we went to see some properties in Florida we used the local agents Calvin introduced to us. We highly recommend Calvin Xu to everyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate in NYC."
