We've been selling and buying 7 single residence properties for the last 20 years. Like you, we had our share of hiring competent realtors, but none has exhibit the tenacity and professionalism Yvette does. So here is our journey with Yvette: - She singlehandedly manage all pest, home, and roof inspections (and later repairing) reports BEFORE the house is listed to avoid unpleasant surprise for prospective buyers. Although we want to put a small fund aside for reports and repair cost if needed, but she has none of it. We are talking serious trust and bond here, folks! - She bravely put a listing price high above similar footage house sold last year (like so many real estate "experts" in US News tells you NOT to do. You see, no homeowner made a move after the housing market is in recuperating state this year... all are waiting for next brave realtor to make the head wave). But Yvette not only break the stale mate of setting the price in this neighborhood, but also getting 7 amazing offers in 7 days with each offer stronger than the last. We are grateful that Yvette is not the "typical" agent, but her market knowledge and timing were head-and-shoulder above the rest. - There were no piece-meal with Yvette here... She tabulated all offers into 1 page that list buyer offerings, their financial backgrounds, contingencies, down payment, etc. as well as including many sincere heart felt letters from the buyers. It's extremely difficult to do considering buyer seriousness and willingness to acquire the house for their lovely family. Lucky for us, Yvette valuable suggestions were straight from her brain and not her heart. That made it a lot easier for us to choose from these amazing offers, and tactful enough not to encourage bidding war. Just so you know, highest offer means nothing unless all other dependencies are taken into consideration and thankfully Yvette was helping us breeze though it. - She set aside weekly offer review meetings, but we really didn't need it due to too many offers on our desk in just mere days so no need for follow up meetings. Thanks to Yvette forethought with thoughtful presentation of all buyer data; we were able to make sound decision right there without missing a beat. Talk about planning ahead! - Behind the scene, she had to coordinated all the repairs in timely manner, setup staging, write rejection letters to those heart broken buyers, putting escrow paperwork in order, close the escrow with fundings go to the right places... All awhile representing our interest every steps of the way. We never felt blind-sided at any time. The whole selling process has been extremely smooth and effortless and knew that we were very much bless from her deep local real estate experiences. - Knowing that she juggles dozen of properties up-and-down the Bay Area at any given time, but we have never felt our priorities falling into the cracks. She always provide useful updates, short progress reports, heads up on the happenings and upcoming activities, etc. that made us felt not only she was on top of things but respectfully treat our needs with highest priority and courtesy. It is the high standards and competency attributes that Yvette possessed that we yearn for when we need a realtor to represent us in the new city we are moving to, but of course we know that is just wishful thinking. For us, there won't be another Yvette Teng anywhere, we know because we've searched for the last 6 months here.
