"Song is not just a realtor, she took care of her clients like her family members, if not more. For the 5 years I am out of the country, she helped find 2 tenants for my home and kept the house in excellent shape. She would come to site at every occasion and if any help was needed, range from helping find a broken water heater to help find a painter. All for free. We bought two houses from her. She has also helped numerous trips to look for new homes for our family, even nothing came out to a picky customer as me. She knows the bay area very well and listens to her client. She takes client relationship more seriously than anything else. She is also a hard worker. She can drive hours to checkout a home for me while I am not in the bay area. She returns emails and even phone calls later at night. So I was always kept informed. Working with her is also very comfortable, no pushing. We could spend a year to look for a good home and she is still go help check things out in the first place. She is indeed an excellent agent when comes to home hunting." - Jimmy, Client

We love our home, all credit goes to Song, because of her we brought home. Song is now part of our family. Song you are the best." - Anand, Client

"Song Kim is a really experienced realtor who listens to her clients very seriously and attentively. She is also a trusted realtor whom I can always count on. She helped my family when we sold and bought our homes since 2011. When we sold our first home in Dublin, she was involved in every detail from cleaning, decorating, and preparing for proper documents. She even helped us to stay in a temporary housing while we were searching for a new home. She listened our needs for a new home and set our target considering our financial limitations. She introduced us a reliable financial adviser who helped us to prepare for a new home. She actively and proactively searched for our home and found a sweat and lovely home after several months. While we lived in the new home, she often visited us as our best friend. Since we had to leave the home for my international assignment early in 2016, she has been taking care of my home with nice tenants. She spent a lot of time in finding the tenants and worked on the details very quickly so we didn't need to worry about our urgent departure for my assignment. Every time when there is a need for home repair or services, Song is there for help with her big smile. With her dedicated and continuous care for our home and for us, my family has been enjoying our stay abroad for several years now with a big comfort. Song has been the best realtor who has a kind smile and big coverage in dealing with nice homes and satisfying clients truthfully, like us" - Joon Park, Client

"We got to know Song Kim, as our friends highly recommended her as a real estate agent. It took over 6 months from we actively began to search until the closing of our new home. We were first home buyers and were not familiar with the process, but Song spent hours answering our questions and provided tons of info about the area and home buying process whenever we had any concerns.
She was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. She made the process incredibly easy, helping us get a good mortgage rate, home inspection, and an early closing, meeting our timeline for moving. The best part about working with Song was that we could make a good and personal relationship with her, having her honest opinions on homes on the market. We would highly recommend her to anyone.

Song has great people skills, serving her clients with a depth of understanding and a warm and supportive personality, well equipped to see the buy/sale through to a happy conclusion. In her enthusiasm for finding our first home in Bay Area, Song went an extra mile in providing resources for ensuring we are getting value for money by looking at every detail of the market and matching it to our requirements. She diligently puts in the amount of time it takes to find the right house and gave us enough advance notice to be ready. Song has a deep consideration for her customer’s needs and takes these into account when planning the showings. And she knows how to find the right potential matches to the criteria!
