"I would like to rate Gary 6 stars if I could, because he went above and beyond to take care of us during the stressful seller's market in early 2017. My parents-in-law purchased their first home in Seattle through Gary in 2011, and they felt the same way thus recommended Gary to us. At that time, their family just moved to the US from Vietnam and didn't speak much English. Gary guided them through the entire process with honesty, integrity, and real caring. Even long after they closed, Gary still sincerely helped them out with HOA issues. I moved from San Diego in the end of 2016 and I've been through home buying process before. I was so surprised Gary's professionalism and quality of service. My previous experience with good agent was that she/he has too many customers and doesn't have time for me. That was entirely not the case with Gary. His availability and accommodation for my demanding work schedule was more than I could ever asked for. I closed my first Seattle-area home in Apr/2017 and got married in June in our backyard. It was a home run!!! Being an engineer, I was inclined to use the new home buying model of not having a dedicated agent. However, Gary convinced me otherwise and I will continue to seek his helps very soon. Thank you Gary!!!"

"Gary is a professional and genuine realtor. His knowledge and integrity will bring you a peaceful mind in selling or buying a house. I highly recommend Gary to my friends and anyone as our family realtor."

" far the best realtor I have had the pleasure to deal with. Used Gary to purchase and sell the home. Very friendly and professional. Couldn't ask for a better realtor, and I've bought and sold five homes."

"Simply the best! Gary is the most thoughtful, responsive, and caring real estate professional that I have had the opportunity to work with. Nothing was too much for Gary--he took time to explain concepts, discuss strategies, and most importantly, gave me advice on how to deal with the potential buyers' offers. Specifically, I was willing to go with a buyer's offer, but Gary advised me to hold off, and with his considerable negotiation skills, Gary was able to get me tens of thousands more on my home sale. Often times, Gary bailed me out of tasks that I was supposed to complete in order to list the house but just couldn't find time. In those instances, I was so thankful when Gary jumped in and did it for me. Way over and above expectations."
