"Pearl and Kevin were the best realtor team we could have ever imagined! I am so glad that my husband struck a conversation with Pearl at a random open house in mountain view! People rightly say that the first impression is the last impression. From that day on, we never looked back!
Pearl and Kevin are so thorough with the whole process and left no stone unturned during the whole time and believe me, our home buying process took a long long time! They asked questions which made us think hard and prioritize our needs. Their questions made us identify our needs, wants, deal-breakers etc. They explained the whole home buying process in great detail helping us understand all the real-estate lingo, enabling us to feel confident and prepared. Once we were done with this exercise, Pearl instantly knew what we wanted and from then on, every weekend and sometimes even weekdays, we four were out-and-about, checking out properties. And in that process, we all became such good friends! So much so that Pearl and Kevin specially planned a trip to India for our wedding :) We are practically family now!
Kevin and Pearl make up for an efficient real estate duo. Pearl’s real-estate expertise where she picks out the right house, in the right neighbourhood, checking all your boxes, specifically curated based on your needs. Pearl finds out the reason behind your choices and she works hard to make buyers feel comfortable and puts you at ease with the entire home buying experience. After Pearl is done with her research, that’s when Kevin steps in, laying out all the structural details of each property, finding flaws that are not disclosed and even provides an idea of the potential monetary/time investment for needed repairs/upgrades. This helps buyers make informed decisions about the bidding process and when to let go of a property you like (trust me, it’ll happen!).
I totally understand that real-estate isn’t an easy job. No weekends, late nights, early mornings, and vacations - do you even recognize that word? The payoff is that Pearl and Kevin get to spend their days helping people make their dreams come true!
In today’s competitive market, it takes a lot of skill to get your buyers the house of their dreams and they did exactly that for us. They have not only become our realtor for life but our chosen family here in the Bay Area! " - SANJEEVANI BHARDWAJ & ABHISHEK BISHT
"We had lived in the Midwest for more than 35 years before we decided to move to the Silicon Valley where our son's family lived. After we found ourselves uncomfortable in the last two homes in which we had lived for six years, we thought we would give a third and final try to find a home suitable to our needs. At the first meeting with Pearl and Kevin, we explained our situation to them in details. They were patient and carefully listened to understand our somewhat unique needs in the Silicon Valley. Sometimes Kevin raised a few questions to reorganize our thoughts. Pearl were tirelessly searching for the right house in the right neighborhood, and Kevin, as an engineer, gave us his honest and fair evaluations on the foundation, used construction materials and stability of the candidate properties. They seemed to be trying to find their own house. Naturally it took us a longer period of time to find a home satisfactory to us than we expected to spend. Not only they have helped us settle in our new house, but also they ceaselessly assist us with everything including automobiles, plants, trees, furniture, mails, etc. Pearl and Kevin are down-to-earth, genuine and competent human beings, and they are our good friends forever." - JEI AND KYUNG RYOO FROM REDWOOD CITY
"I have bought two homes, have rented my house with the help of an agent, and have rented several apartments of my own, and I have never met an agent who is as caring and sincere as Pearl You. The situation is my fiancé and I are new to California, and we were looking for an apartment to rent in Palo Alto. It was so confusing that we decided we should get help. So I walked into the Alain Pinel San Francisco Marina location, and explained our situation. The lady at the front desk said they don't handle Palo Alto rentals at that branch, but that she would be happy to send a company-wide (wow!) email to see if someone in the local Palo Alto area could help. An hour later, I got a call from Pearl You, and we talked about what things we were looking for in our rental. Couple of hours later, Pearl followed up with an email with very helpful information about Palo Alto and the kinds of things we were looking for ( nearby volleyball, tennis, hiking, etc). Over the next several days, she was in contact with me every day, sending listings, and helping me sort our through various neighborhoods and homes. AND she did all of this without any expectation of getting a commission!! To this day, I have not met Pearl You, but we have texted back and forth so much that she feels like a best friend. We ended up renting a beautiful apartment in downtown Palo Alto, and I will definitely use Pearl for buying our future home." - SHAHLA NEJAD 2018 FROM UNIVERSITY SOUTH
"We worked with Pearl and Kevin to close on a house in the Milpitas neighborhood and our experience with them was really cool. We went to their open house to just check out the house- we did not have a pre-approval in place or have everything put together - however because we liked the house, they helped through with everything required and was able to successfully get our offer approved and close on the house! Kevin is a very knowledgeable person and can provide insights into the structure and other aspects of the house. Both of them are very genuine people and we enjoyed working with them. We would highly recommend their services." - MONICA AUGUSTIN 2018 FROM MILPITAS
"I had an excellent experience working with Pearl and Kevin, I am a first time home buyer and Pearl won me over great rapport upon our first meeting. She was able to accommodate me with looking at home during the weekdays, sometimes with short notice request. We looked at many homes and she was patient with me and provided valuable feedback. Pearl and Kevin were very knowledgeable about the neighborhood I was interested in and were always readily available for consults, even outside of normal office hour. Pearl and Kevin combined make a great team. I am very impressed by their experience and professionalism, I am very happy with the service they provided!" - WINNIE TSAI
"It’s my real pleasure to write this review. I rarely write reviews but I think any seller or buyer could really benefit from this.
I feel whole heartily grateful and lucky to have Pearl and Kevin as my buyer's agents. I cannot say enough thanks for their total above and beyond expertise and dedication helping me get my house, among almost 20 offers.
Pearl and Kevin is such a unique, perfect and beautiful team and couple, I was literally having two outstanding agents helping me. They are extremely resourceful, passionate, dedicated, patient and fun to be with. In addition, they are so impressively smart and creative, and sincere.
They handheld me every step of the way. I have complete trust and confidence in them. They even uplifted my spirit in the frustrating bidding process, while they try to work out a good strategy and deal for me. I think they were more nervous than I but they kept every one of us calm.
Pearl and Kevin not only helped me with the purchase smoothly and pleasantly. They helped me many many times after the purchase to do inspections and perform high-quality repairs themselves. They stayed in the new house late to replace/install appliances, fix stairs, etc. They totally treated as if it was like their own and try to make it perfect for us to move in ready.
While Kevin is so knowledgeable, smart, fun, and handy, Pearl is so creative, smart, charming and artistic. She provided some great advice and information on window treatments. They also have lots of good connections in the field in case needed.
I highly recommend Pearl and Kevin. I will definitely ask for their help again if we need in the future.
I would be very happy to be a reference for them if anyone needs it."

"My parents who recently moved to the Bay Area were initially shocked by the housing market. They were concerned about finding an ideal place within their budget, and Pearl and Kevin understood their needs and navigated their way toward finding the ideal retirement house for my parents. From the initial meeting with Pearl, we noticed that Pearl was very genuine and attentive in understanding the kind of house my parents wished to purchase. She was very transparent, thorough, and informative during the house hunting process and was very prompt in responding to our questions and concerns. What sets Pearl and Kevin apart is that they truly take care of their clients. They dedicated their time in ensuring that my parents settled into the house with no problems. Even after my parents moved in, Pearl and Kevin continued to help them with their questions regarding house maintenance and improvement. My parents and I are so grateful to Pearl and Kevin for their dedicated service and for the friendship that has been formed from working with them."

"Pearl and Kevin were introduced to me when I approached Alain Pinel for Seller's agent.
I had a very specific house to buy, a very limited time to prepare and specific constraints.
Pearl and Kevin as a team were very effective at assessing the situation and making sure the property was going to meet my short term and long term need. They also came up with very genuine and inventive ideas to pursue this deal. It was immensely valuable in this competitive seller's market. They responded to my questions and informed me of the situations almost in real time. They were extremely detail oriented team. Needless to say, we were successful at purchasing the property. The consultations and assistance they provided after the transaction was also extremely invaluable. I couldn't be happier with this team."
