"Picking a real estate agent was hard for us since we know several well qualified agents. After several interviews and much discussion we went with Lisa Lam and we're glad we did. Lisa was awesome to work with in selling our home and purchasing another. The house we was about 14 years old and Lisa was instrumental in helping us choose what to update and what to leave alone. She helped us get contractors when none were to be found. She even pulled her painters off her own home so they could do ours.
When it came time for us to buy our house her negotiating skills helped us be the winning bidder for a house that had a ton of competition. Her knowledge allowed her to write an attractive winning offer using something other than just dollars. In our case she drilled down to find the sellers were motived with staying put until their new home was done and having a quick close since their last one fell through at the last minute. Knowing to ask the right questions and using that information in the offer can make the difference and in our case it did. Lisa and her amazing team were able to get the deal to close in two weeks freeing up some cash for the sellers while allowing them to remain in the home until theirs was completed.
At this point I consider her a friend as well as an agent. We really could not be any happier with her and her entire team." - Lisa
"We came across a beautiful home we loved a little earlier than expected in our search, before we had chosen an agent. We reached out to Lisa, and she arranged to meet us the next day outside of normal hours. Lisa impressed us with her hustle, sharpness, and attitude. A day later after working with financing, we had an offer together.
Lisa's speed, negotiation skills, familiarity with the area, and experience were crucial to helping us win against competitive offers. Her team was also superb in helping us with the details and working around our travel plans. The financing partner she recommended was equally impressive. Both were highly responsive and made us feel very comfortable with the process at every step of the way.
We can't recommend Lisa enough" - Roland
"We are first-time homebuyers, so we had no clue as to what we were doing. Lucky for us, we were referred to Lisa Lam. She made the entire process a lot easier and less stressful. Lisa took the time to explain eveything to us in detail, and also learned what we really wanted in our first home. She also explained home valuation and showed us how much house we would get for our initial budget (as with most first-time buyers, we wanted more for less or the rare steal of a deal). While shocking, we appreciated her honesty. Lisa is also very good at the negotiation phase. She looks out for her clients' best interests and thoroughly explains her decision making process. When she says you can call/text/email her anytime (within reason), she means it. She keeps you in the loop along the whole way. In the end, we got a house that we love at a reasonable price. We are lucky to have Lisa as our realtor." - Geoff
