"Vicky Yu is a wonderful person and a truly amazing, talented realtor! She possesses all the good qualities of a top realtor: she’s very professional, hard-working and an excellent negotiator. When we were looking for a “dream” house, we were not sure where exactly to start. After Vicky showed us a house or two, we decided to look elsewhere. She was very supportive and even introduced us another good realtor in that area. She did this very gracefully and true to what she said that her clients’ interest always comes first. After a big circle, we came back to her. When we finally found our dream house, the listing price was way higher than our budget. This was where Vicky showed her talent and negotiating skills. She worked tirelessly and efficiently back and forth. She seemed to know what to say and when to say it. We were very impressed by her efficiency and her talent. The result: we ended up with our dream house within our budget, also a lot lower than the bank appraisal. We have Vicky to thank for. After the business, Vicky has become a dear friend!"
"It is lucky to have Vicky as our agent for the investment property. At the beginning, we were not sure where to invest; she was very professional to recommend the location to satisfy our need. She then helped us to find several good candidate properties, pointed to us the pros and cons of the house and potential rent to get, helped us to estimate the offering price. She is very responsive and patient to answer our questions and cleared our concerns, so we could make our decision quickly. In fact, we made the offer after our 1st house hunt trip. With her help and guidance, we were able to complete the whole process around 1 month from starting to look around to the close of transaction.
She is not only a good realtor, she shared resources with us and also gave us very useful advice on how to rent out the property, what to pay attention when selecting the applicants.
I am very glad to have her as our agent. She is efficient, enthusiastic and trustworthy. I definitely recommend her."
"Vicky recently helped us shop for and purchase a home in the San Carlos area. Vicky is dedicated, persistent and resourceful. She is tough when she needs to be, but has a great sense of humor which is often expressed by her unabashed honesty with her clients and friends -- she won't hesitate to tell you truthfully what she thinks.
We had specific requirements for the type of home we wanted, and Vicky worked with us tirelessly in a tough market until we found a property.
Vicky is a consummate salesperson and has a great rapport with other agents and industry professionals. She works with both buyers and sellers and has a great track record. She has worked with sellers who need to remodel or update their properties before sale, and turns out great results. During our search we saw one of the properties she was working on before and after the remodel, and she got great results. She knows the local market and stays engaged.
With our transaction, Vicky worked hard with the seller's agent to close a deal before other buyers even had a chance to bid, and then kept tabs on the entire process through the close of escrow and beyond to make sure nothing fell through the cracks. I appreciate all the hard work she put in for us -- thank you Vicky!"
"We are so thankful to have Vicky Yu as our agent. Recently there are nothing excite us more than purchasing our loving new house in Moraga town with Vicky’s great and professional help.
We met Vicky in January while she was trying hard to help us get a Bay view house in Redwood City. Right before the offer day for that house, I was told by UCSF surgeon that my medical problem needs to be taken care of ASAP. After discussed the situation with Vicky, she was very supportive and fully understood that it was truly hard for us to handle two major things at the same time. She said-“taking good care of your health first, there is always a house next.”
In March, together with Vicky, we focus our eyes in Orinda/Moraga area. We have completely fallen in love with this neighborhood since it is so similar to our previous beautiful home in Southern California. With her help, quickly we offered a house in Moraga and the offer was accepted by seller the next day. Unfortunately we had to drop the offer due to the unexpected foundation issue. She had no complaints and immediately helped us to find another house in the same gate community. With her hard work, we were able to move forward with the purchase but still within our budget. During this process, Vicky demonstrated her professional experience and excellent negotiation skills, I am very impressed with her knowledge and capability as a qualified realtor.
Vicky is a very thoughtful and kind person, she is always pro-active and prepare everything ahead of time. With time goes, our relationship goes beyond the client-realtor. It is truly an amazing experience to work with her during my tough house hunting in the bay area and I strong recommend her."
"I have bought and sold several houses in the past years and have been worked with different agents, Vicky is the best I met so far! She recently helped me as buyer agent for the purchase of a rental house, during this time, I was very delighted to find out that Vicky knows the Bay Area housing market very well, she is also very responsible and patient. What I appreciated the most is that she always takes the position and thinks of her client first. Thanks Vicky!" - Yuqing
