"Xin helped my family with both purchase and sale in Palo Alto. We were impressed by Xin’s knowledge about the market, neighborhood, and community when we first met her. She has gained our ultimate trust in the past two years. Her passion, wisdom, and devotion to the clients make her outstanding in the competitive agent world. Benefiting from her financial background and extensive track record in Palo Alto, Xin is on top of the ever-changing real estate market. She’s been constantly updating us on what’s happening. She is a good listener to her clients, too. She has been putting our family’s needs top priority and patiently guided us toward the best decision that works for the long run. We’re also very impressed with Xin’s efficiency, time management, and multitasking capability. When she handled the sale of our home, she made me feel that we were her only client with her undivided attention 24/7. Even after the transaction was closed, Xin provided all her reliable resources to help us settle in from minor upgrades to routine maintenance. Xin is my first call whenever I need help. I have no hesitation to recommend her to all my family and friends."

"We love working with Xin. She found our home in North Los Altos. Xin is professional and always puts her clients first. With her MBA background, Xin is knowledgeable about the housing market and has the ability to analyze your ROI (return on investment). Xin is very detailed and sharp with her negotiation skills. She has great integrity throughout the whole buying process. She calls you back immediately and her customer service is impeccable. We can't be happier with Xin! We can go on and on about her. She is our friend and realtor for life."

"My family and I have known Xin for almost 5 years. She was first a friend before we chose her to be our realtor. In this fragmented market space, we gravitated toward Xin because she is a knowledgeable professional who also inspires. Xin guided us through our search but really put herself in our shoes. She listens and understands. Xin treats clients with the same respect and care regardless of their price range. She connected us to a variety of leads, including pre- / off- market opportunities. Her dedication and professionalism inspire me, as I see the client-focused sacrifices she makes. My husband particularly appreciates Xin's analytical context and strategic advice, as Xin took him on side-by-side and openly shared knowledge and resources. Our relationship did not end at closing of escrow; Xin continued to check in with us and even proactively offered action items for our future consideration. In short, Xin coached us to find our dream home while helping us do well throughout the process. We are beyond-satisfied with the result, and we know Xin is always but a phone call away. Thank you, Xin, on behalf of my family, from the bottom of our hearts!"

"Xin was outstanding throughout the process of representing us selling our family home in Palo Alto. She has a superior knowledge of the local real estate market. This understanding of the market, along with her experience and confidence, were the reasons we initially selected her. Xin did a tremendous job executing her plan to renovate and market the house. The transformation of the property in such a short period of time was remarkable. Shortly after listing the home, we received multiple offers. Xin negotiated with the buyers on our behalf and was able to increase the purchase price by about 10% through the process. Xin added value through the process and made the experience of selling this home much easier than we ever expected."
- Jim and Erin

"Xin did an outstanding job handling the sale of our home in Crescent Park, Palo Alto. She is knowledgable and efficient through every step of the sales process – from preparing the home, marketing to closing. We have no hesitation in recommending Xin to anyone."
- David

"Notwithstanding this whole frustrating home searching process, we are so happy that we found Xin. Xin always makes us feel like we are her only clients. She’s gone above and beyond every single time. She knows the mid-Peninsula area inside out and always offers us great analytical advice. Most importantly, we trust Xin. We know that Xin will never steer us towards a property just to close a deal and we know that whatever property we ultimately purchase with Xin, we would have paid a fair price and can feel good about our purchase."
- Stacy and Eric

"Xin is hardworking and good with market trends and data analysis. What set her apart is her integrity in putting client’s interest first and foremost. This will benefit all her clients greatly in the long run."
- Connie

"Xin did beyond the call of duty to meet our needs. We first met her at one of her open houses and were impressed with her enthusiasm and knowledge of the Palo Alto market. We had a house in Palo Alto and wanted to remodel it. She found the general contractor and architect who did the work for a house that we liked. When the general contractor became unavailable, Xin was also able to identify and quickly engage other qualified contractors, painters, and designers to help us renovate the house. She personally worked with us for over nine months to complete the renovation and engaged with the City's Planning Department with us for the permit and inspections. She worked tirelessly during this time with little expectation that we would sell this house. She was available 24/7 for any of our questions and concerns. Xin is very knowledgeable about the Palo Alto market and is well connected to the real estate community. Her research and trend assessments are based on analytics - factual trends and market data. Her conclusions are right on and we rely on her recommendations. Xin is also very smart and a relentlessly hard worker. Dedicated to achieving the goals of her client, she put together final touches to the house as well as worked with a top-notched stager to present the house in its best light. She was personally present at every open house. As Xin puts it, she wanted to meet everyone who came to the open house and would not miss any opportunity to engage prospective buyers. She followed up with all who came through the door. With Xin's efforts, enthusiasm and dedication, we were able to sell the house above the list price with a cash offer, while in a changing market."

A Successful Program
Much of Xin’s approach is informed by her extensive financial background. Before entering real estate, Xin thrived as an investment banker at Merrill Lynch and spent over a decade as a stock analyst and fund manager at premier firms like Fidelity. To her, listing a home is similar to helping a company go public, so she created a matching program of due diligence, preparation, early marketing, and careful pricing, followed by additional marketing.
