★★★★★ "I am happy to share my experience working with Ken during the purchase of my apartment building in Oakland, CA. He worked patiently with me and went the extra mile to ensure the timing of the sale of my duplex worked seamlessly with the up leg purchase. He was aggressive in handling negotiations and paid attention to details. Ken was honest and straightforward in helping complete the successful transaction. He was always available 24/7 to answer any questions and to get answers that helped with the purchase. I am happy with the results, and without hesitation, I highly recommend Ken to anyone considering his services. Ken’s professionalism, along with his easy-going natural personality, makes for a positive relationship." - Marta S. De Pierris

★★★★★ "It is with pleasure I provide a recommendation to Ken Wu at Compass Commercial for the successful purchase of my triplex in Oakland on 42" Ave this summer. It was a competitive situation with many buyers interested in the building. He was very communicative and thoughtful in his advice on how to provide a strong offer to win against the other offers. With his help and guidance, I was able to write a very strong offer, and ultimately was awarded the purchase. Throughout the entire transaction, I found him to be very knowledgeable, flexible, and timely in his communications with me and kept us informed throughout the entire process. He was aggressive, but professional and negotiated hard to get me a credit of $30,000 to the purchase price. When the time comes for me to expand my real estate portfolio, I will definitely work with Ken again and I recommend him highly to anyone considering to invest or sell in the Bay Area Commercial Real Estate." - Kathy Bian

★★★★★ "This meeting is where Ken and his team showcased how they were professional, knowledgeable and experts doing 1031 exchanges. My father and I had never done an exchange before. Good thing we decided to, because Ken ended up helping us trade into a much better property in a much better location, overall putting us in a much better position. Two weeks after agreeing to let Ken help sell dad’s property, I saw how much drive, work ethic, and intelligence Ken had. Always working and picks up the phone anytime or calls back shortly. Always available to help with tasks, large or menial. Clear night and day difference from other real estate agents, who put in minimal effort and do not value your time. At this point, I saw enough to reach out and have him also sell my own property and combine the proceeds into one 1031 exchange. It wasn’t an easy task, and us being virgins to the whole process, you really just don’t want to be taken advantage of. Some of the buildings were old, outdated, and not bringing in much cash. Ken helped in coming up with a plan to increase rents for two of our section 8 tenants. We discovered here that we were in fact being taken advantage of by section 8 because of our ignorance of their system and language barrier for my dad. It was a tough battle, section 8 did not want to budge from their minimal increases, but Ken helped me stay assertive. After a lot of back and forth, we were finally able to get acceptable increases and thus sell our buildings for a much higher value. I could not have done this without Ken. I am now one of the proud owners of a nice 15 unit apartment - traded up from 8 units - that wasn’t even on the market for sale. I’m an “actions speak louder than words” kind of person, and I can tell you that Ken Wu does the actions, and speaks the words. Thank you man! Truly," - Bryan Young
