“It would be impossible to live in our dream now without Daphne.”

When we first moved to the Bay area, we were overwhelmed by the price and competitiveness of the real estate market. We felt lost and stressed and had gone through a frustrating process with multiple rejected offers. We ended up terminating our working relationship with our real estate agent at the time as he clearly did not meet our expectations. We were then introduced to Daphne. She quickly turned the situation around by forming a clear strategy and worked tenaciously to find the right properties that met our needs. She also took time to tell us about the pros and cons of each property and was honest in pointing out things to watch out for after we purchased the property. Daphne is extremely experienced in targeting for the bidding price so that we are confident in placing a competitive offer without overpaying. Only until we met Daphne had we realized how large the gap was between the best-in-class realtor and a mediocre one.

Different from other agents, Daphne’s experience and extensive personal network allowed her to offer the "one-stop service", from hunting, finding an experienced loan agent, to housing remodeling, interior design, home inspection and even finding a trust-worthy handyman. We relied on her for almost any question we have about real estate, and Daphne played a pivotal role in guiding us through the tedious process. Looking back, there was no way a seller would turn down an all cash buyer and select us were it not for Daphne’s superb skills.

It would not be complete without mentioning how pleasant it was to work with Daphne. She is thoughtful, collaborative, efficient and always puts our interests above all else. She not only delivers but also exceeds all our expectations. We have become good friends and we would recommend her to our families and friends in a heartbeat.”
