"Dorothy helped us find the perfect house for our family. We’ve worked with several real estate agents in the past and she is the best agent we have worked with. We had so many questions and she kindly answered all the questions and concerns. She toured so many houses when we weren’t available. She is very detail-oriented, hard working, very knowledgeable about the area and even the renovating process. She understands our needs and has our best interest in mind. Even after closing the house, she helped us find contractors to renovate our house. She went out of her way to help us so many times before and after the purchase. Our family is so lucky to have Dorothy as our agent and we highly recommend her. We couldn't be happier about the whole experience with her. Thank you so much Dorothy for everything!"
- Ezra & Heather
"I have purchased 2 homes and recently sold one - all with Dorothy Liu. She's an exceptional agent who goes above and beyond to ensure her clients are 110% satisfied. In my recent home sale experience with Dorothy, she provided me with a complete list and schedule of everything that would be done for my home to go to market. Dorothy communicated with me daily on progress. If I had a question or concern, she replied immediately day or night with thorough responses. There is no detail large or small that goes unnoticed with Dorothy. She made sure anything related to the sale (eg paperwork, house painting, gardening, handyman work) was done correctly and in a timely manner. In fact when the appraisal of the home came in, Dorothy immediately flagged multiple issues with the assessment. She noticed many large mistakes and carefully documented all of them. Dorothy sent this documentation right away to the buyer agent who forwarded along to the appraising bank. This resulted in a significant increase in the appraised value of the home! I honestly feel so fortunate to be a client of Dorothy's and can't imagine working with anyone else. If you are lucky enough to become her client, you can trust things will get done and done correctly. You will receive the best service you can imagine."
"We've worked with several real estate agents in the past and Dorothy is by far the best we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. We were looking to relocate from Washington to California and found Dorothy as a referral from a friend in the area. Being that we weren’t from the area, Dorothy went above and beyond to calm our fears about low inventory and financing. She not only helped us find our family home, but she also referred us to a great lender. Dorothy seemed to work around the clock. She answered our phone calls and text messages right away, responding late at night and on the weekends. Since much of our home search was done remotely, Dorothy did all the ground work and research and provided a ton of data to help us make our decisions. She pays close attention to the details in the contracts and there were never any surprises when it came time to close. All in all, Dorothy truly cares about her clients and it shows. We highly recommend Dorothy and think anyone would be lucky to have the chance to work with her.
-Chase & Randi, Buyer relocated to Bay Area
"My husband and I were looking to buy a house and we met Dorothy at an open house and immediately took a liking to her. Dorothy agreed to help us and she has been amazing. The Bay area market is a tough market for buyers but Dorothy helped us close on our dream house. Her knowledge about the area we were looking in is exceptional and goes to show that she has been working in the market and has a deep understanding and important information about the area.
Dorothy is a skilled market researcher. She is also very flexible and accommodating. Dorothy is extremely responsive. Whenever we had questions or needed information, Dorothy was quick to respond and address our needs. Dorothy is a good relationship builder and works well with all parties including, the seller’s agent, appraiser, loan agents etc. Dorothy also is a great resource with any construction work that you might need to get done in your new house.
I would not hesitate to recommend Dorothy for all your real estate needs."
"I'm happy to write this recommendation for Dorothy Liu.
I met Dorothy at an open house and liked her right away. Her passion for her work and professionalism were evident. She helped me purchase that home and then helped me update and sell my home. It was a stressful time made better by her support and advice. Her knowledge of buying and selling real estate made the entire process easier than I expected. Dorothy was attentive to my needs and guided me through the many decisions I needed to make. It's her caring nature and experience with the housing market that makes her tops in my book!
I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation!
- Sabrina Robbins, New Home Buyer in Cupertino
"We had a busy schedule, but Dorothy was able to accommodate us at nearly any time. She is an excellent researcher and always provided a wealth of additional comps and information about every house we expressed interest in. When we were finally ready to make an offer on a house, she was able to help us through a very competitive bid to win the contract and close on the house.
This is the 5th house I've bought and have worked with many realtors for both buying and selling. Dorothy is by far the best I've worked with. She is knowledgeable, efficient, detail oriented, thorough, and kind. She listens and adapts to what you need and makes sure you get it."
- John P.
"Having read many stories about how hard it can be to buy a place in bay area, I prepared for a tough battle. However, I was lucky enough to meet Dorothy. She guided me hand by hand throughout my buying process. She is professional, knowledgeable, proactive, responsive and warm hearted. With her help, I won on the very first offer I ever put. As a first time buyer, this was way beyond my expectation. Dorothy is very compassionate. She always thinks from my stand point. She's really concerned about what I'm concerned about. This makes me feel that she's not just an agent but someone who is part of my family. I would recommend her in a heartbeat."
- Lei Z.
"First is to help us set up right market expectation. We were experiencing frustration in house hunting for a while, partially due to the gap between our pricing model and the (crazy) bay area market. She encouraged us and mentally prepared us during our first meeting. She is very knowledgeable about the south bay area, and is very good at finding right comparative properties and performing market analysis. We felt much more comfortable after discussing with her. It turned out that we finally got our dream house, I can’t image this being accomplished without her!
We were so much impressed by her superior communication skills. She proactively connected with the listing agent and our loan agent to make sure everything was secured. And kept us involved throughout the bidding process. She always makes her available to us from early morning to evening, all our questions were taken care of in a timely manner. Many clients of Dorothy highlighted her willingness and effort to go the extra miles, which I would definitely agree with. Her service does not end with the completion of deal. She is continuously providing us great suggestion on remodeling, landscaping, and giving referrals. All these are extremely helpful."
- Y. Xu
"We worked with Dorothy Liu to purchase our home in Los Altos Hills, California. Dorothy was a tenacious advocate for us throughout the buying process. We retained Dorothy after finding a home that was perfect for us but priced too high. Dorothy advised us on how to approach the offer and negotiated for us over the course of weeks to ultimately close the deal over $500K under the original asking price. Despite the deal almost falling apart numerous times, Dorothy’s commitment and dedication made it happen. We are very thankful for her work!"
- S.W. & S.W.
"Dorothy made the process extremely easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don’t. On the night before we made the offer, she stayed up for 2 hours explaining each portion of the paperwork to me. She even spoke with our mortgage consultant and directly managed the handoff of paperwork from him. When our offer was accepted we were blown away. Her hard work and knowledge of what it takes to buy a home really paid off. I will be recommending Dorothy Liu to everyone I know. She is a true professional and a genuinely nice person. The process of buying a new home is not easy, but there won’t be anyone so dedicated to making it better than Dorothy Liu."
- Apoorva D.
"Dorothy is a very knowledgeable and responsible agent. Actually she is the best agent I have ever worked together. I would highly recommend her to others."
- A. Young
"Dorothy was extremely detail oriented in assisting me with my home purchase. I really didn't know what was involved with buying a house but she walked me through it step by step, pointing out the things we needed to look for and what we should be careful of. By the time it came to making the purchase, I had a lot of confidence that I understood the issues that the house had. She helped me put together a well calculated offer based on the prices of homes in the area. After the offer was accepted she continued to be very detail oriented spotting extra fees that were being mistakenly applied by the title company and helping to negotiate fair compensation for a few things that a build inspection revealed.
Throughout the entire process her communication was excellent with frequent calls and emails to me and with the other parties. She also gave a lot of good tips for a first time home owner to make what I expected to be a big overwhelming step in life into a fairly simple transaction."
- Ian C.
"We were incredibly lucky to have Dorothy Liu represent us as a buying agent when searching for a new home in the peninsula. Dorothy is experienced, professional, and anticipates bottlenecks during the transaction process to ensure everything goes smoothly. With her assistance, we were able to move into our home three days before an already aggressive close date.
Additionally, Dorothy handled the changing parameters of our home search with patience. She guided us through the options at each price range, helped us settle on acceptable property specifications, and then searched with us to find suitable properties. Moreover, Dorothy put up with many late-night emails and phone calls to answer every question we had. We were pleased with the level of service and would seek out Dorothy for subsequent real estate transactions. Likewise, we would recommend her to other potential homebuyers."
- Tim J.
"Dorothy helped us buy a home in Los Gatos. In the red hot bay area real estate market, it would not have been possible if it weren't for Dorothy's help. She is the best real estate agent we have worked with. She is not only hard working, very knowledgeable about the area and the buying/selling processes, she absolutely has our best interest in mind. She went out of her way to help us so many times before and after we bought. She just cared so much about our purchase and wanted to make sure we did everything right and got the right outcomes. Thank you so much Dorothy for doing all you did for us."
- Jean W.
"Absolutely great agent. With her help, I got a property with a very good price. What's more, it's my first time placing an offer!"
- Yuhao Z.
"Dorothy provided excellent information regarding local real estate market condition and valuation for comparable properties. She was extremely knowledgeable and attentive to my needs. She was a tireless negotiator with great attention to detail. I could not have purchased a house so smoothly in such a competitive market without her amazing expertise and effort."
- Dave H.
"I am very luck to have Dorothy as my agent (buyer). Her expertise is extremely valuable in finding a house, negotiate a contract and on closing in this real estate market. The buying process has its surprise, complication and tough situations. Dorothy is always a step ahead to be prepared to deal with situation and to solve problems. One other benefit is that she is very comfortable and takes advantage of technology to make the process fast, accurate and painless. She also goes out her way in making sure my moving in is fast and smooth by helping me plan out the remodeling work ahead of closing date. Overall, she has helped me in getting a place that I am very very happy with."
"Dorothy could not have been more knowledgeable about fulfilling our housing needs and more accommodating at helping us get into the perfect home. It was a real pleasure to work with someone whose primary interest was to find us what we wanted, rather than trying to get us into something that was easy for her. We really appreciated Dorothy’s help in navigating the myriad of paperwork needed to close the deal within our short timeframe."
- Thomas T & Jessie L.
"Dorothy did an incredible job of helping me find the perfect first home. She worked late into the night answering my questions and helping me even after the sale was concluded. Her advice and market analysis were perfect and she is incredibly dedicated. I am very glad to have had Dorothy during my home search."
- Leonidas L.
"My family has worked with Dorothy on several real estate deals in the last five years (buying and selling). We will continue to work with her if we need to do any additional buying or selling. She is very knowledgeable, dependable and trustworthy--all things you want from someone to help you out with one of life's big decisions. On top of it all she is a super nice person who wants to make sure you are happy with your decisions. I would recommend her highly to anyone in need of real estate services."
- Bill K.
"We have worked with Dorothy four times, both as buyers and sellers, and she always amazes us by her energy, hard work, and experience. Dorothy is an excellent communicator, and has a positive, understanding attitude that makes it a joy to work with her. And the bottom line is that Dorothy persevered through challenging and changing circumstances to help us purchase the perfect house, and also sold our previous house more smoothly than we ever could have imagined."
- Joel Y.
"I cannot recommend Dorothy highly enough for her work! Dorothy is one of the best real estate specialists in the bay area. She is extremely knowledgeable in this field and truly cares for her clients. As a first time buyer, I had very little idea about buying a house and didn't know what to expect, Dorothy was very patient and walked me through every step and made me feel at ease. In short, Dorothy always goes the extra mile to help her clients. While working with Dorothy, I see that she is passionate about her work and has put a lot of hard work into making sure every little detail is taken care of. I highly recommend Dorothy to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent and I know for sure that I'll keep working with her in the future."

I’d like to recommend her for your real estate needs."

- Tanya J. & Jeff M.
"Dorothy helped us to purchase a home. She was very patient and provided us lots of information for us to make decision. She was not pushy to make a sale, instead she treated us like friends and wanted us to be comfortable with our decision. Dorothy is a honest, friendly and reliable person to work with. We could reach her anytime and she responded timely in all matters. I would work with Dorothy in any future real estate projects."

She is superlative, outstanding, responsive and proactive. She defines ‘problem solving’ to a new level! We could not say more… We love her! Our two kids love her. She’s not only our agent, but our life time friend."
- Marian W.
"The day we met Dorothy was the day our search for a home took a sharp turn for the better. Dorothy helped us find our new home, and we purchased it at an excellent price. Throughout the long and arduous search for our dream home, Dorothy took us on tours, showed us homes, ran comps, market analysis, helped research schools and neighborhoods… the list goes on.
Dorothy always goes the extra mile, she was always available to take our calls and answer our questions. She took care of every little detail throughout the entire process. You name it, she did it and did it well. If you think buying a house is a complicated ordeal – think again. Buying a house is a snap! … but only with Dorothy."
- Ken & Keren D.
"Dorothy was there every step, going the extra mile…no, many extra miles, in helping us in our search. My wife and I were astounded by the amount of effort that Dorothy put into our transaction both professionally and personally. She is a very energetic person and applied that energy and then some to our situation. She took us on tours, gathered our input and searched for just the right neighborhood, house design, price we were looking for. And within just a couple of weeks, she found just the right home for us at a more than reasonable price. We would unconditionally recommend Dorothy with the highest commendation."
- Mike & Linda W.
"Dorothy guided us through the entire process, from searching for houses and developing strategies for placing offers, to making the offer and closing the deal. Despite the competitive market in the Lynbrook area before the summer, we successfully purchased our home within two months from the start. We credit Dorothy with a smooth, pleasurable home-buying experience.
In addition to her professional knowledge, Dorothy is a pleasant and helpful person to work with. She did everything possible in order to accommodate our needs and was extremely responsive to our questions and needs. Particularly remarkable were those long meetings where we stayed up until midnight discussing the market, and reviewing and going over the paperwork.
Dorothy is savvy, personable, and professional. We highly recommend Dorothy Liu and will undoubtedly use her services again in the future."
- Daniel & Daisy L.
"Dorothy is an efficient, tireless and resourceful professional. We learned from her the
spirit of “I serve”. We certainly highly recommend anyone to hire Dorothy’s service."
- Dean C.
"Honest, professional, tireless and flexible are just a few of the words that describe Dorothy Liu as she helped us find the purchase our new home. And, perhaps most important of all, Dorothy delivers! We always knew we could count on her expertise and advice as we made our way through the complicated business of first finding the right home and then making and negotiating the right offer. Dorothy stood by us and supported us at every turn. We are thrilled with our new home and know that we could never have done it without her!"
- Ted & Risa F.
"We appreciated your patience, guidance and good spirits throughout our long search. While we were frustrated and sick of looking, you were steady and encouraging, though never pushy. I am sure you thought we were a bit crazy but you were even kind enough to not tell us!
Today I meet so few people that are in business and that worry about taking good care of their clients. You are one that does for sure. Someday we will be ready to get another house, or maybe to sell this one, and when we do I know we will definitely look you up. You can be our Realtor for Life."
- Bill & Nancy K.
"We worked with many other realtors in the past, but nobody came closer to her when it comes to offering services. She offered services that were clearly above and beyond the norm. We strongly recommend her as a realtor for your real estate needs."
- Mathew T. & Sheena J.
" I would like to shout out to Dorothy's professionalism and excellent service for helping my family find our dream homes! We actually knew Dorothy for more than a decade and she helped us get our very first home in 2008. We have become friends ever since and she always provides us with her best opinion, whether it's house market related or just generally life related subjects. At the beginning of 2022, when we felt that we should upgrade our home to accommodate the bigger family, she is again our best choice because we know how difficult it is to win the bidding war! Throughout the entire process, Dorothy provided her most honest opinions and insights to the local market. She also has great connections with most of the listing agents and demonstrates excellent communication with the listing agent so both sides are always on the same page! In the end, she helped us win the offer in one of the most competitive areas and closed the mortgage in time. Overall, I will highly recommend Dorothy to anyone who is in the real estate market, whether it's buying or selling. Her service and professionalism will be the key for your success.
