Karen is the most amazing real estate agent, she took care of us from day 1. We are very happy in our house but can’t wait to sell it so we can work with Karen again. We met with her for our first meet to understand what we were looking for and then in 3 weeks we had found our dream home. We would highly recommend Karen any day.

We’ve worked with Karen on three discrete home transactions now and she has been flawless every time. On two occasions when selling, I’m not sure we would have had the positive outcome we had, if it were not for the effort Karen put in. Likewise when buying, Karen fought for us and presented our offers in the best possible light to gain a successful outcome, even though the property was strongly contested. We’re more than happy to recommend Karen to friends and family, and regularly do; I’m glad we found her 🙂

I can’t say enough good things about Karen. She went above and beyond to help us sell our home and did a beautiful job staging it. She is very knowledgeable in all things real estate. I would absolutely recommend her services.

Karen is one of the best agents we know. She was extremely helpful in showing us homes, submitting offers, negotiating with listing agents, and getting the process done in a timely fashion. Before working with Karen, we had been looking around for 2 years with another agent and could not put a  successful offer. As soon as 3 weeks after we met her, we could buy a house. She is so smart in understanding what you really want and she fights for it. She also helped us with remolding our house; she introduced us a very reasonable contractor and helped us in every step. We could not live in our dream house without Karen’s help. We 100% recommend her.

Initially, my wife and I tried 3 realtors recommended by our friends but ended up failed in bidding 5 houses after 2 months of house hunting. They are good realtors but the market went crazy and it was tough to get a house in such a seller market. Then, we met Karen when she was listing an open  house. After a short conversation, she showed us great understanding of the market and the houses that fit us the best. We must give her a try. We went out for a weekend open house tour and she sent us all the pros and cons regarding the house, disclosures, title, comparison report etc. It really saved us lots of time reading the report ourselves, besides shared lots of professional advice on things that we were not aware of. Once we decided on the house to bid, she immediately started approaching the selling agent and finally got seller accepted our offer within our budget. Karen also followed up closely on the closing process and gave us peace of mind through the whole process. It works like a charm and we are so excited to get our dream house! We feel so blessed to meet Karen. We appreciate her professionalism, creative mindset, and great communication skills in both English and Mandarin. We are recommending Karen to our friends and hope she can help more people to get their dream house like we do!

Xiaotian Li, Buyer in Santa Clara, CA

I first met Karen 2 years prior to the selling of my house when I was not sure of my intent and was testing the market. Out of the 5 agents that I interviewed, only Karen came prepared with assessments and proposals for selling my house with various possibilities in regards to improvements vs  return. For 1.5 years I ran hot and cold concerning selling and during that time Karen maintained contact and support. When it was time to sell, Karen”s extensive marketing and financial background kicked in and at the end, I realized a handsome profit on my property. Virtually every suggestion and supportive argument from Karen concerning improvements and marketing proved correct. Karen has access to various resources that smooth the whole selling process and is Extremely hands on during it all. In short, I am very satisfied with my realtor Karen who thru out this long selling process exhibited the highest level of professionalism and poise.

Karen did an amazing job as our buyers agent from looking for home to purchase to closing the deal. Karen made sure we understood every detail of the disclosures on the properties we considered making offers on, and helped us to make a conservative but competitive offer on the house that we  bought. She was very responsive to our questions and requests for showings. Once we closed in the house she helped us set up a few minor renovations on a tight timetable. The contractors she suggested were excellent and she helped to facilitate the work we had to do before we moved in. She helped us save money and got us the house we wanted at a price we were comfortable with. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor and would use her to sell our home if we were ever to consider it.

Karen was our shining star when it came to selling and purchasing our home. After having a horrible experience with a Gilroy Intero realtor who was not able to sell our home after 3 months, we hired Karen. With Karen strong work ethic, she was able to sell our home in 8 days! Not only was she able  to sell our home but she was able to work a great deal for us to purchase our next home! Karen is not your normal realtor and has her clients best interest. I would use and recommend Karen over and over again! Thank you Karen!!

Karen is by far the best most professional Real Estate agent that I have ever dealt with. Her attention to detail and making sure that you are very important as a person are second to none. She is always available to explain in great detail any questions that you may have and you can be assured  of a wonderful experience with little to no stress at all. It wood be a great asset to the industry if there were more agents like her.

Karen is absolutely amazing! My husband and I bought our first home, a condo with Karen as our real estate agent and she knew exactly what she was doing! We ran into many bumps in the road in trying to get this condo but because Karen was so willing to help and so awesome, we got our dream condo!  We were living in it for a couple years and Karen answered any questions we had before, during and after we sold this condo. We sold this condo with Karen as out real estate agent as well and she did a phenomenal job as usual!! I absolutely love Karen and am happy to say she is now one of our friends! She does great work and I would recommend her to anyone!!!!!

Karen is a focused real estate expert who’s ultimate goal is to get the best deal for her client,, whether a buyer or seller. Without going into details, Karen continued to worked behind the scene even after my original offer was rejected and I thought nothing else could be done. Because of  Karen’s determination, market expertise, personal commitment and can-do attitude she was able to broker a deal which was acceptable to bother seller and buyer. I would not hesitate to use Karen in future real estate deals nor would I hesitate to recommend her to others. Whether you are considering to buy or sell property, the first thing you need to do is call Karen and she will take care of the rest.

Karen did a great job from the very beginning. She explained the entire process so I knew exactly what to expect as we progressed. I was very impressed with her ability to quickly focus in on what I was looking for, and not waste my time with listings that didn’t meet my criteria. Once we found the  right house, she made sure that I was aware of all my options and able to proceed very smoothly to closing. I would definitely use her for any future real estate services.

I would not hesitate to recommend Karen Xu to anyone. I sold my previous house and bought my current house with her as my real estate agent. The entire process was seamless. She went above and beyond…from personally staging my house for sale to making sure that it was cleaned when I moved out,  she paid attention to every detail and made sure that my worries were minimal. When I bought my new home, she shielded me from a lot of the back and forth worries with the other agents and only brought me in when I needed to sign something. It was great! She handled it for me and made me feel comfortable. I got my new house at asking price…and did I mention the house I sold went almost $30K over asking price. This was thanks to her. She invested her time and money into selling my house and the end, it paid off for both of us. On top of that, I really felt like she cared about me and my daughter. I will use her again and again as a real estate agent and I’d strongly encourage anyone to do the same.

Karen is the super agent. She surpassed our expectations of what an agent could do for us. She fought for the house we wanted and got it for us. In this competitive market you want Karen by your side.

I have used Karen as my real estate agent to buy and sell a home. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a competent agent. She understands the market well, and advices her clients with their best interests in mind. She goes above and beyond expectation. She was available to me any time,  and guided me through the stressful process. Not only that, she staged my home for open house beautifully. All of her hard work got me multiple above asking offers. I couldn’t ask for more. Thank you Karen!

Karen has the educational background and personal qualities such as integrity and dedication that make her a top notch realtor. She not only knows all the ins and outs of the Bay Area real estate process, but makes them easy to follow as she guides you through with a binder outlining what to  expect. My experience with Karen is as a seller and I found her very professional in every aspect of the sale: evaluation, marketing, preparing the home for sale, negotiation, escrow and title details. This sale was complex, but Karen hung in there all the way to make it seem easy. Her timely and clear communication with everyone involved exceeded expectations. I highly recommend Karen Xu.

Karen helped my buy and sell my first home in San Jose. She is extremely professional and went above and beyond in both transactions. After working in the real estate industry for 3 years myself, I truly appreciate all that Karen did to make both transactions as easy as possible, especially since I  no longer lived in the area while my home was on the market. If you are serious about buying or selling a home I strongly suggest contacting Karen.

Karla Kastell, Seller in San Jose, CA

Karen is a joy to work with! She is 110% dedicated in helping her clients and will go the extra mile. As a first time home buyer, Karen helped me purchase a beautiful town home that was within my price range, in a good neighborhood and move in ready. She patiently went through all of the necessary  home purchase documents, what information I need to provide to successfully get my loan and also a detailed breakdown of all the costs involved in purchasing a home. I was well informed and was not caught off guard by the different fees necessary for a successful closing. Right before I moved in, Karen even made sure that the house was cleaned (including profession carpet cleaning). I would recommend Karen to anyone, especially first time home buyers!

Jin Ciu, Buyer in San Jose, CA

One friend referred Karen to me and said she’s the best. He’s right, Karen is so professional and resourceful. She’s excellent. I feel so lucky I’ve her as my agent.

I’m a first home buyer and have little knowledge of the market and all the rules. I still remember the first day we met  Karen, she gave me a binder that listed the whole process of buying a house and took hours to go though it with us. She drove us every time to see houses that meet our budget and provided valuable suggestion. The negotiation process for my house is very long and tough, but she handled it very well. I will never get this house without her.

Karen is very resourceful and helpful. After getting the house, she even helped me on the move in decoration and sub-leasing my rental house. She doesn’t treat you as a client, but as a friend.

Karen is the best. I’ll definitely recommend her to all of my friends.

We met Karen in an open house. If I have to describe her in a few words, the first few that come to my mind are highly enterprising, energetic, passionate, friendly, enthusiastic, go-getter. To top this, her work ethic is impeccable. She is very responsive and is always available when there are  questions. For a first time home-buyer like us, we could put our complete trust in her and everything just fell in place. She kept us informed from the biggest things to the smallest things as and when she knew it, and was always willing to help out in any way she could. We were just lucky we walked in that open house! Thank you Karen! We couldn’t have done it without you.

Angie Marasco, Buyer in San Jose, CA

Karen Xu was a very nice experience for a first time home-buyer like me . She is very patient. She worked outside the business hours and weekends for me. She never pressured me in putting a higher price to finish the house. Thanks a lot, I love my home.

★★★★★

Buyer in San Jose, CA

I am not a fan of real estate agents overall – I never feel I can completely trust them. With Karen, however, we have full confidence that she has OUR best interest in mind. She will actually steer you away from something if she feels it won’t meet your long term goals or simply doesn’t fit you  (even if it means she looses a commission). She is knowledgeable, experienced, communicative and works within the parameters you give to her. Karen helped us to sell our last home and buy the current one. Next time we need an agent – we will definitely use her!

★★★★★

Buyer in San Jose, CA

My husband and I are first time home buyers and we undoubtedly would not be in the amazing house we are in today if it weren’t for Karen. She is not only hard working, knowledgeable and helpful, she is assertive and smart and offers sound advice on offer prices and which homes to pursue and which  homes to discard. My husband and I were aggressively looking for a home for over four months with another realtor. After a bad experience with them, Karen was recommended to us and we are so glad we went with her. While working with our other realtor, we put in over ten offers and each time we were outbid and turned down. Karen got us into contract on the second offer we submitted under her. She outperformed from the very beginning. Karen is detail-oriented and will go through everything with you to help you understand the process, what you are signing and what to expect. Karen really does all of the work for you and makes the home buying process seamless and simple. I would recommend Karen to anyone looking to buy a home and will go back to her when my husband and I are ready to buy another home. Karen, thank you for all that you’ve done for us!

Karen is a great at communication and patiently adjust to my changes. Karen works extremely hard and has a great sense of urgency.

Buyer in Campbell, CA

I am a first time home buyer and Karen just helped me close the deal. I’ve been looking for a home for the last 9 months with 2 different agents and every time I’ve been either outbid or had to do all of research finding homes myself. The only thing other agents resorted to was signing me up for  MLS listings. Karen helped me to get my offer accepted after 3 weeks I met her. She was a superstar from the start. She setup a presentation for me walking me through the home buying process. She then worked day and night identifying properties, showing me around, speaking with other agents etc. and understanding my situation. I knew she was working hard because I got status updates, email messages, sms texts day and night! She works with multiple clients at a time but I appreciated that she made the time to deliver an excellent service. She works HARD but she also delivers! I would recommend her services to anyone looking to buy a home and will be sure to call her when I am looking to buy a home next time.
