"Irene presents offers that win and she did not let us down. Well before we were ready to buy a house, Irene took time to meet with us to explain her philosophy on home buying. She listened to us so she could understand our unique situation and what we wanted from a home. She appreciated that when we found the right home, we needed to win the bid. And when it came time to buy we had Irene’s full attention. Irene was well-connected to listing agents, inspectors, and financing so she has the network to go the distance.”" - Bill and Susan
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Irene, from start to finish. She was friendly, honest, experienced, and most importantly knowledgeable! She helped us sell our condo within a week, and was able to negotiate $311,000 above the listing price. While we were looking to buy, she diligently drove us around the areas of her expertise, and when we decided to look elsewhere, she referred another agent, which I thought was very honest and noble of her." - Allka
"It was a pleasure working with Irene who seemed to have all the answers to our real state questions. Thanks to her hard work and knowledge, we bought our dream house. I would recommend Irene and her support team who made the transaction all so easy and painless. Thank you Irene" - Vivi
"Irene is an excellent real estate agent and I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in the area. She's extremely knowledgeable about the area, including the different towns and neighborhoods, school districts, and can give you a great pros/cons of each. She tailors her service for what you as a client need rather than forcing you to work within some standard confine. What set her apart from others I've met was that she clearly puts her client and their needs ahead of closing a transaction. She's not transactionally driven like many other real estate agents I've seen and is patient about making sure her client is happy with their decision first. She also comes with a deep professional network that makes home buying a far less painful ordeal for people than it can be." - David
"Irene was more of a friend than a real estate agent. We clicked as soon as we met and I was impressed by Irene's knowledge of the real estate market, the local bay area housing market, her candor & positive outlook and above all her non-pushy attitude that made me feel empowered to take my own decision. Irene helped me identify the right homes to consider for me and my son in the Foster City area and always gave great feedback¾pros and cons¾of each home that we looked at. Irene was instrumental in helping me buy the second home that I made an offer on. Her offer strategy was methodical and personalized and she made it a point to go and present the offer personally to the seller agent. She has great negotiation skills but she always kept my needs foremost. She was thoughtful and kind during the entire process – searching homes, writing and extending an offer, recommending mortgage brokers, closing- and I felt at ease and confident that I was in good hands. I would definitely recommend Irene to anyone buying a house in the bay area. She is a rock star real estate agent!" - Nidhi
