"Vivian is the best! We bought our first home with Vivian and she recently helped us sell. We couldn't be more pleased with her. She took care of everything for us: hired all the contractors that we needed to touch up (handyman, painter, cleaning crew, etc.), arranged for staging & photographers, escrow, obtained HOA paperwork, etc. She knows the market well and spends time studying the trends in order to give us the best advice. The strategies she recommended helped us sell our home in one week with multiple offers, many of them exceeded our expectations & she helped us negotiate even better terms & price! Vivian is hard working & trustworthy. I know I don't have to worry about anything when I work with her because she will give me advice that is best for us. I can give a million more reasons why Vivian deserves our (and your) business but that would make the review too long. You won't go wrong in working with Vivian. She will help you find/sell the best home in the best possible terms!"

"I couldn't recommend Vivian enough! Even if you're not actively looking for a home at the moment, it's a good idea to connect with Vivian. She shares informative market reports that give you an accurate picture of the housing market, and for us they helped us know when it felt right to go from watching the market to jumping in!

I've never asked Vivian a question where she hasn't been able to give a highly informed and straight-forward answer. I've also never asked her a question where I was left waiting for an answer: she is highly responsive! She has great experience, a deep understanding of the market, and shares her insights freely. She was able to take our input about what we were looking for, ask us important questions that we didn't even think of ourselves, and use all of that information to find great homes for us to consider. Vivian did a fantastic job guiding us through the offer process. She respected our budget, gave us realistic expectations about what a successful offer would look like, and was completely upfront when she thought that something was overpriced. She's also willing to go above and beyond for her clients. Once, we were out of town and unable to make it to an open house for a property that we were very interested in. Vivian went on our behalf and did a video call so that we could see it! We really felt like she was on our team and highly recommended her!"

"We had an amazing experience working with Vivian. She is extremely knowledgeable about the housing market in Santa Clara county. Once we started working with Vivian, she listened very carefully to what we were looking for, helped us refine our criteria and set reasonable expectations with us given our budget. She then sent us many great homes that fit our interests perfectly. Any time we wanted to tour a home, or check the disclosures, she made it happen right away. She was incredibly responsive to all our texts/emails. We read through countless disclosures, and she was always incredibly thorough, going through all the documents with a fine tooth comb and helping us understand what the major red flags were vs. minor issues. When looking at homes, she was always able to tell if a home was underpriced or overpriced, and on multiple occasions correctly predicted the range of what the home would sell for.

One thing I especially loved about working with Vivian is, she was never ever pushy about trying to get us to buy a home. In fact, quite the opposite, any time we got serious about making a bid, she made sure to ask us really good questions to be sure it was the right decision for us. She truly cared that we find a home we love, and was incredibly patient with us throughout this process.

Vivian went above and beyond to help us find our home, and guided us through every step of the process. She even helped connect us to an amazing mortgage agent who ultimately became our chosen lender. We could not have bought a home without her incredible help!!"

"I highly recommend Vivian as your realtor. We were searching for a home for the past 6 months and failed at various bids in Sunnyvale. Almost at the verge of giving up the Sunnyvale market, we approached Vivian who was referred to us by my friend. She asked all the right questions and came up to speed on our financial situation and our expectations. She showed us couple of houses the very first week and we decided to bid on one. She gave us great guidance on the pricing and how to approach the bid. She communicated very well on all aspects and was on top of things for any asks from the seller's agent. Bazinga!! We got accepted on our first offer with Vivian. Even throughout the closing she was very approachable for any kind of questions and guided us carefully throughout the process. Vivian is definitely my go-to realtor for the highly efficient and professional end to end service she provided and made our home buying experience a great one."

"This is the second time we asked for Vivian's service. Last time was to purchase the house we are happily living in right now. This time is to handle rental listing for my property in Sunnyvale. Again she has done a superb job for us, from repairing/cleaning the house, hosting open house and screening tenants, to finally signing the contract. It is all done professionally in less than 3 weeks, including providing guidance as how to terminate lease with previous tenants. Such a swift process is a testimony to her strong capability and great personality. I myself couldn't complete the task so fast, which would mean loss of rent. And from my past experiences, not all rental listing services are easy to work with. I always read that people would need a team to do real estate investment. In the essence of both time & money. I highly recommend Vivian's service to current & potential landlords."

"Vivian is an amazing top tier realtor to work with. She is incredibly knowledgeable, confident, honest, patient and talented. Vivian helped us purchase our dream home and navigated the process from beginning to end without any issues. She was quick to respond to every emails, texts, and phone calls. We were never left in the dark or wondering what was happening. We honestly don't think we would nearly be as happy with our outcome if we hadn't had Vivian to guide us through all the steps. We have found a lifelong realtor and a friend in her. We have recommended her to our friends, family and co-workers and will definitely be calling her the next time we buy/sell our home."

"I'd like to thank Vivian for the awesome job she did in helping the family find and ultimately close on our house. Her knowledge of the local market and experience in all stages of the transaction really made it a positive experience for us. I have to say Vivian really went above and beyond to help us with our purchase and we highly recommend her for all your real estate needs! Vivian - thanks again for all that you've done!!!"

"Vivian helped us buy our first home - a single family home in Sunnyvale. Her meticulousness and patience won our trust right from the start. Vivian is super knowledgeable about Sunnyvale/Santa Clara market and is very well connected. She gave us detailed comparable pricing of houses. Her inputs on the pricing in this area helped us get the house in our very first offer. Also, she was very helpful with the disclosures and the closing process. Her responsiveness is amazing. She took initiative in learning about our likes/dislikes regarding the open houses we toured each week. After first couple of weeks she used these preferences to actually go see some houses during the week and give us her overview and recommendations for our weekend visits. With our 6 month old we had very little time to spend on home search. Vivian made this whole process very easy and smooth for us. She is very cheerful and pleasant person to work with. We strongly recommend her!"

"Vivian is the BEST! I highly recommend anyone in the market for buying/selling a house to use Vivian. We have been looking to buy a home for months. The market is hot as ever so it's extremely competitive and challenging for buyers. We went through a few different agents (not at the same time). Some of them were proactive while others are more passive, but truly, none worked as hard as Vivian! Based on homes that we like, Vivian would go to open homes to preview homes for us. She'd send us pictures and talk to the realtors to try to get a feel of what the buyer is looking for (price point, rent-back, financing, etc.). She would keep calling the listing agents to make sure all of our questions are answered, and to let them know how serious we are as buyers. She is always available to answer my questions, no matter what time it is. We must have looked at over a hundred homes; offered and got rejected by 20+ sellers before we went to Vivian. Vivian helped us win the bid on our 3rd try with her!! I absolutely love her and would recommend anyone to use her service. I am telling all of my friends and family about her! If you need an agent, call Vivian. You couldn't be in better hands."

"We had a great experience working with Vivian! House search is stressful enough but thanks to Vivian and her advice we were able to work fast and act on things quickly when they seemed right. We are especially thankful to her 'not pushy' nature and being very proactive in visiting listings and finding information. Vivian went above and beyond in sending us information promptly, always responded in a timely fashion and is available to mediate communication with builder/seller. She has good knowledge of the area as well and puts her point of view confidently without influencing your decision making. We are happy to have her as our agent and recommend her highly to others."

"Vivian went above and beyond to help us with every aspect of house buying. For first time buyers like me and my girlfriend, we almost didn't expect everything would go so smoothly. Vivian is knowledgeable, knows about the market, and always keeps us in the loop during the entire transaction. When our offer was countered by the seller, Vivian helped us to make sure our counteroffer stays in an advantaged position, while carries weight. When we finally closed the deal, we were happy our purchase price is lower than similar homes nearby. I would highly recommend Vivian to anyone who's looking for homes in the bay area."

"Best Agent to work with! This is the second time we work with Vivian. Earlier we worked with her to buy the house and we were pretty impressed with her working style, so we decided to engage with her on selling our house. Definitely proved to be the best decision ever. Her attention to detail in presenting the house as its best, very professional and effective communication made a very big difference! Our house was sold way beyond our expectations. I would strongly recommend Vivian as both a selling and buying agent."

"Vivian has been my agent for several years now. She has helped us both buy and sell our homes. Recently, she helped us buy again for our growing family. Anyone who has ever looked at the bay area housing market knows, buying a home is super stressful. Prices are sky-high, the market is uber competitive and you've got to make your decision fast. Luckily, we have Vivian. Vivian is someone that I can trust completely. She is knowledgeable, smart, and always there when I need her. She provides us with insightful analyses and her recommendations are always with our best interest in mind. She doesn't push us to buy so she can make a quick buck. She really cares about her clients and wants to help us find the right home at the right price. I can go on and on raving about Vivian but no one wants to read a thousand-word review. The bottom line is, you can't go wrong with Vivian as your agent."

"Vivian helped us purchase our home in 2017 and when we were ready to sell in 2021 we didn't hesitate to have Vivian represent us once again. We sold our home after we moved out of the area and it brought us incredible peace of mind to have Vivian looking after our home when we couldn't. Vivian is simply wonderful and will always be our favorite real estate agent."

"Buying a house in the year of 2021 is emotionally draining and stressful as we are constantly in the bidding wars. Vivian was there with us every step of the way and with her knowledge and great communication skills, we were able to not only purchase our first home but our Dream home. She helped oversee everything since we entered the contract and also negotiated with the seller with contingencies when our house was not able to close on time. We are so grateful to have her as our realtor and I'd highly recommend her service to you if you are looking for a buyer agent."

"Being a first time home buyer, we couldn't have asked for anyone better than Vivian during this process. She is extraordinary at her job, explains everything during the process so patiently and is available at all times with responses. She has a keen eye for estimating what the house might sell for. Most importantly, she gives you the space and time to explore homes and we never once felt rushed into making an offer. I really appreciated her proactively going to homes that we considered making an offer and doing a thorough visual inspection and providing a unique perspective. She made us feel comfortable at all times and never felt pushed or rushed at any point. Highly recommend Vivian to all."
