"We worked with Vincent 16 years ago when we acquired our current home, and it was a flawless experience. Therefore, when my parents mentioned that they would like to move closer to us in Bay Area from Elk Grove, we thought of Vincent right away without hesitation. After communicating about the criteria of the house/area that we were looking for, he provided the list of prospect properties to us EVERY DAY, and accompanied us to open houses every week. With his help, we were able to get the house that fits our need and within our price range in this competitive housing market in only 1.5 months. He also followed up closely with our loan approval and escrow process and recommended reliable contractors for the minor repairs, bath renovation and fumigation. One word to conclude our experience with Vincent: EXCELLENT!"-Yi & Stephen, W. San Jose
"Vincent brings a very positive charm in any conversation which you notice instantaneously! He is very knowledgeable about the entire home buying process including mortgage process, negotiation process, comps, house expansion plans, and any costs associated with remodeling of old homes. The areas that Vincent selects are exceptionally up to the mark making sure that your purchase is a great long-term investment. He is an expert negotiator, his comps are very accurate reflecting the current market rates and he gives an unbiased analysis of the property. He helps with his awesome contacts for any house fixes in reasonable prices and quality work. He gave us thorough guidance and helped us make the right decision, without him it would have been difficult to purchase this competitive property."-Kristy & Pratik, San Mateo
"There are a plethora of real estate agents so home buyers' and home sellers' options are limitless. But there is no one that comes close to Vincent Choi. He makes home buying and selling a joy and not a drudgery. In 2015, he sold our home at the same time he found us our current home after many months of searching. He is an uncompromising advocate for your needs."-Hanh & Laurent, Palo Alto/Los Altos
"Vincent is an outstanding agent. I purchased a home where Vincent was the seller agent. I had my concerns about having the listing agent represent me, but I still went through with it. Why? Honesty and Integrity. Those two words define Vincent. In fact, I believe that's why he's such a successful agent. I would purchase a home with Vincent again, and highly recommend him to my friends and family. If I ever sell or purchase another home, I'll definitely reach out to him. If you're thinking of buying a house that Vincent's selling, don't hesitate. Buy it. Honesty and Integrity are the two qualities I looked for in an agent. Those two words define Vincent."-Christian & Elvia, North Valley (San Jose)
"For first time home-buyers, Vincent is the one who can hold your hand and go through every single step for finding the ideal home for you. He is polite, patient, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I know some agents will try to push the buyer's budget to the upper limit but that is not him. He respect the pace of the buyers and provide much help to achieve the buyers' goal, instead of rush them to get into contract. We have relative low budget on purchasing houses and he did help us to get the ideal one within the budget."-Xiran & Ning, Milpitas
"Vincent is arguably the best buyer's agent in the south bay area. He has the exceptional skill to calculate the real value of a property. He is especially sharp at smelling the change of the market. You'll be surprised how accurate can Vincent predict the dollar amount you need to offer to secure a property. In addition, Vincent has a remarkably high standard regarding the property structures and conditions. He is able to pick up even the most unnoticeable flaw of a property. Houses recommended by Vincent are always in the best conditions. Vincent is always honest about the pros and cons of a house. These information are critical for an informative decision. Buying a house is a process full of anxiety. Vincent is always very responsive to any questions and requests. He is prepared for any occasions that may occur from the beginning of house hunting to the closing. Vincent has many partners to help the clients with financing, inspection, and home improvements. All of them offer high quality and cost effective services. The overall house purchasing experience is enjoyable with the help of Vincent."-Yifei & Lu, West San Jose
" Vincent is the best agent I have met in Bay Area. He is not only experienced, knowledged, and professional, but he is also kind and cares for his clients deeply! His service does not end at the moment of closing, but rather life-time as he is always there when you need help or advice from him later on. We have been benefiting a lot from his help and advices on inspection, repair, renovation, and how to take care of the home going forward.
1. Vincent is very professional. He always comes from the client’s perspective when touring a home or making an offer. He always does his homework in examining the home all around personally and reading the inspection and termite report careful and points out the good and bad of the home. He also does extensive market research before making an offer to get the fair price tag on the home.
2. Vincent is very devoted to work and his clients. He is reachable via all channels all the time and can jump on the frontline to help you and solve your problem immediately, even in the case that the problem is not really REALTOR®'s responsibility.
3. Vincent is super kind. He proactively helps us a lot and gives many advice to us in how to buy and maintain a home because we are first time homebuyer.
Our experience with Vincent has been superb all around. Highly recommended" "-Helin & Jinlin, South San Francisco
"Hands down all 5-star service!!! My wife and I were looking for our first home. As a typical first home buyer, we knew very little about the market, the process, and everything house-buying related. To make matters worse, we had our own situations that's not in favor of us. Vincent helped us a lot throughout the process. He's super responsive to our all sort of questions. He's helping us keep an active eye on the market. He showed us lots of beautiful homes during open houses and sent us his detailed comments on pros/cons of each one. After we went into contract, we had some problems with our mortgage initially. Vincent again used his connections and expertise to help us solve the problem and close on time (which I didn't even believe that we could do)!!! After closing, Vincent still helped us in home decoration, remodeling, and all other stuff that a typical homeowner would have trouble with :) . All in all, without Vincent's help, we wouldn't be even close to owning our sweet home today. We couldn't be happier with the service he provided!"-Chongxi & Linna, Fremont
"Vincent is a very experienced REALTOR®. He gave us a lot of guidance on buying our first home. He tirelessly worked with us on finding homes, scheduling tours, discussing home's issues, etc. Entering one home, he can immediately show us pros and cons and help evaluate if this is a suitable home for us. After we found the home, he also helped a lot on following-up items like scheduling termite treatment, renovations, setting up utilities. Although purchasing a home is a long process, it is very enjoyable to work with Vincent."- Hao & Shirley, Cambrian W. San Jose

If you think with all these being done, then closing should be the end of the journey, think again. This is only the beginning.
