Thank you for your submission!
I found Yvette on Yelp and reached out to her over a year ago regarding my condo in Fremont. Yvette was very helpful with her expertise about the market. However, the timing wasn't right at the time to sell. Fast forward to a year later, I reached out to Yvette again. She was on top of it! She got access to the occupied unit, helped assess of the home condition, and provide her recommendations for the sale of the home. It turned out we ended up doing an off market sale with the existing tenants, with Yvette representing both sides. The sale process was not without issues. The tenant and I each had our own demands, in addition to the complexity added by the HOA. Throughout the process Yvette never lost her cool. She was diplomatic, creative in finding solutions, and she was extremely professional. We ended up closing on time - before the projected deadline. It would not have happened without Yvette's hand holding.
A big THANK YOU to Yvette Teng! When we decided to sell our house somewhat abruptly three months ago to take advantage of the hot seller's market we weren't quite sure which realtor to select. The house down our street sold some months before so we did a little research and learned that Yvette was the listing agent. So we made an appointment with her, as well as one other realtor, to discuss putting our house on the market. Both meetings went great, but we definitely felt more comfortable with Yvette on a personal level. Not to mention she's highly experienced, knowledgeable about our specific development as well as current market conditions. She presents very well, definitely knows her stuff! We knew we'd be in good hands and she did not disappoint. She quickly arranged for cleaners to spiff up the interior/exterior, scheduled a consult with her wonderful complimentary stager and about a week and a half later our house was ready for show. The house drew a good amount of interest and we are so grateful for her professionalism and guidance as we navigated through a difficult first set of potential buyers to our ultimate buyers. We could not be happier with the overall speed of the process given the circumstances as well as the ultimate selling price. She's a definite pleasure to work with and absolutely takes pride in providing exceptional service. If you're looking for an outstanding realtor please give Yvette a call!
We first met Yvette Teng during her open house in our neighborhood, my wife and I so impressed by her work and decided to ask her to sell our house. We are very happy with her personality, working style, and professional marketing decision. There were three houses for sale at the same time in our community, and ours was the only one sold within very short period! It was a wonderful experience working with Yvette Teng. She made the whole process so smooth and pleasant. She kept us updated all the time, and let us worry free. She took care of everything for us from the beginning to closing! I would like to strongly recommend her to everyone who are going to buy or sell their home. Yvette Teng is the best!!!
We found Yvette on Yelp, and at that time she had 25 5-star reviews. We felt we should meet her to see if she could help us. We had a house we hoped to sell quickly, were hoping to get a good price, but knew we faced challenges as the house had been lived in for 40 years and needed work. There was so much to be done, we didn't really know where to start. Yvette impressed us with her professionalism and expertise from the very first meeting. She came prepared with more than a dozen "comps" of houses that were of similar size and location. She had a representation of a full range of houses, from "fixer uppers" to show case homes. She was knowledgeable about the realities of the market and the current trends in sales. She seemed to have a good understanding of why some houses seemed to sell quickly, and why others might be languishing on the market. Yvette gave the house a quick look around, and devised a game plan. She advised we have several inspections done so we could provide perspective buyers with full disclosure, and have a good understanding of how best to proceed with selling the house. Yvette was always on time, always kept us informed of what was happening, and was always quick to respond to our questions. She helped us to quickly get the house on the market, and had enough of a real estate presence to generate good traffic during an open house she held. Almost as soon as the house was on the market, we were sitting down with Yvette to review offers that had been made. Yvette was very good at explaining the pros and cons of the various offers received and before we knew it, the house had been sold. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor, and neither can you. Yvette is honest, professional, knowledgeable, personable, and enthusiastic. She made what could have been a very overwhelming process, simple and easy to navigate. We gladly give her another 5-star rating, and would give higher if possible.
My boyfriend and I started our search for the perfect house back in late September this year. The process was quite daunting because we had no clue what was involved in the process. It was very important we found a realtor who was responsible, well-informed, and supportive. I Yelped realtors in the Fremont area and when I stumbled upon Yvette's page I felt she could be a good match for us, especially since she speaks Teochew which is a Chinese dialect most people know nothing about. I sensed she would hit it off with my parents too since they were also very involved in our house searching process. We met Yvette and immediately, we could tell that she had a lot of expertise in the home buying/selling business. She knew a lot of important information about the Fremont area (schools, house proximity to freeway, neighborhood etc) we did not initially consider when buying a house. We started working with her in mid-October and Yvette always made time for us despite her busy schedule and she would work around the clock, responding very quickly to our emails/texts. Yvette has been wonderful because she was always supportive of our needs and never pushed us to do something we were not comfortable with. She guided us through every single step and patiently answered all of our questions. Our wish was to have a new home for the holidays and lo' and behold, we were granted our wish! We never expected it because we had heard how searching for a house can take several months, but our very first offer was accepted and we were in disbelief and excited at the same time that our wish was coming true. Yvette's amazing negotiation skills and strong connections in the field really helped push us over the edge. There was an unexpected snag along the way, but again, Yvette helped outline all of our options and carefully listened to us when we were not sure what to do. She was never pushy, only supportive and caring. After confiding with our families and thinking it through, we felt this house was still the perfect one for us and our needs, and Yvette worked her magic to help us close the process. The day before we were scheduled to close escrow, without us asking, Yvette made sure to go out of her way to check on our house a few times while the biggest storm of the decade hit us on 12/10/14 to make sure there was no flooding or leaking. Luckily, the house withstood the huge storm. We are forever grateful to her and know we will continue working with her in the future. We are already recommending her to our friends and family who are looking to buy/sell a house. Yvette -- we know you tell us to stop thanking you and that you are only doing your job, but we do truly want to take a moment to thank you so much for all that you have done for us. We are so excited to settle into our new home soon. Happy holidays to you and your family!
Yvette's a great agent that I'd recommend to any seller or buyer! She helped us sell our home well above our expected price in no time and made the entire process stress-free. We did our homework and met with a few agents based on Yelp reviews before we decided to go with Yvette. She came well-prepared with comps and gave us advice to remodel our home in order to get the price we wanted -- all this without pressure to sign the listing contract (unlike other agents)! It was our first time remodeling and selling a home, so we had a lot of questions along the way. She would always promptly and patiently explain the process to us. She also introduced us to her network of contractors who can do all types of work to upgrade your home. On several occasions she went out of her way to move things along and exceeded our expectations including overseeing the remodel work to ensure it's completed timely with high quality. Our home was staged really well where it looked just like a model home. Friends and family who checked out our home afterwards couldn't even recognize it. We ended up getting several offers that Yvette summarized for us to easily compare and decide on the right one to accept. Yvette's someone you can trust to handle your real estate needs with demonstrated expertise about the market. We're planning to buy our next home through her as well.
Yvette recently helped me sell my home. From the outset I found her to be knowledgeable, honest, diligent and very easy to deal with. She helped me get my house ready for selling in a matter of 10 days. She had her team of contractors, painters and handyman to fix my home and have it ready for staging. Most importantly she helped sell the house in a matter of few days and we got way over our listing price. I definitely recommend Yvette wholeheartedly if you want an honest and a knowledgeable a Agent.
I sold my home in union city recently. I feel very fortunate to have Yvette as my real estate agent. I was impressed by Yvette's local knowledge and real estate market expertise. She gave me a lot of valuable advice, from a list to 'must fixe's, to the final staging; from initial pricing, to the counter offering. She is extremely thorough on these matters, she is very detail oriented and has a passion for high standard without compromise. I feel Yvette is the kind of trustworthy person that customer can hand over matters with high confidence. My home got offers within the first two weeks it was on the market, and was sold for full price. Yvette followed through to ensure buyer's loan process went through. Yvette has made the entire process smooth and painless, I come to appreciate this point because I had previous experience for comparison. She did a fantastic job for me. Thank you, Yvette!
A genuine realtor at last - remember, there is only a few who really work for their clientele and here is a gem. Period. We are so happy to have chosen her as our realtor for selling our house. She is friendly, professional, and responsive. It was a pleasure charting three different course of actions with her before deciding on the best course and we were able to sign off the transaction, albeit traveling internationally, with no fuss. Her instincts about not having to overdo the repairs was extremely commendable as we opted to sell the property as-is. She entered the property into the market at the right time, stayed through and ahead on all the paperwork and administrative procedures and just did a fantastic job. Highly recommended and will always remain my choice for future real estate deals in the Bay Area. Great job, Y :-)
Yvette Teng is everything you could hope for in a real estate professional. We would work with her again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a subject matter expert who exemplifies the very best in her field. We researched and interviewed real estate agents in order to find the one who would help us through the sale of our house with proven experience, honesty, and integrity. We called prior clients to get their candid reviews. Unlike other agents, Yvette did not badger or pressure us to select her. Instead she showed us who she was by treating us with respect, providing comps, asking us about our expectations and educating us about the market. Her professionalism and ethics were apparent from our first contact. Yvette made the process of selling our home a positive experience from beginning to end. Yvette is hardworking, conscientious and culturally sensitive. She is a superb communicator who follows through on every detail without fail. She kept us apprised of the process every step of the way. There were no surprises. Yvette has an amazing work ethic and is dedicated to customer service. She makes it clear you are her top priority. You cannot find a better person to help you with the complex task of buying or selling a home. She truly earns each rave review you see. We feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Yvette and know you will feel the same!
