Gloria helps me buy and manage multiple properties. She offers unparalleled enthusiasm, service, and judgment to help me find the right opportunities. As an overseas homeowner and investor, she makes my life easy.
My first purchase was a home for my family in Palo Alto. Gloria carefully listened to our needs. She toured several neighborhoods and viewed homes with us, and helped us understand what kind of homes would suit us. She found us the right home (a brand new construction in a highly desirable neighborhood) while we were in Hong Kong. She effectively guided us to purchase the home without even seeing it in person. Because she took the time to learn our needs and tastes, it was the perfect purchase.
I subsequently bought other properties as investments. With her background in finance and local knowledge, Gloria provided excellent insights into the ROI of each of these opportunities. When the right opportunity presented itself, she worked tirelessly around the clock, despite the 15-hour time difference, to help us put in competitive offers and win. She also provides all the post-sale services to manage my investment properties (rental, property management, redevelopment, etc). I trust her with all my real estate needs in life.
My husband and I started seriously considering owning our own property in Palo Alto sometime last year. Today we have already purchased our dream house at a reasonable price. All these would not have been possible without Gloria, our real estate agent, whom we cannot thank enough for all she has done for us. From day one she worked with us, we were constantly impressed by her dedication to work, professionalism and knowledge in the local market. She made every effort to understand our needs and preferences as an overseas property owner without being intrusive. She touched base with us on a regular basis and updated us on the overview of the Palo Alto property market. She made us feel and know we were in good hands.
Upon the listing of each new property that fell within our parameters, Gloria objectively analyzed and presented to us the pros and cons of it with our needs in mind. Her communications were always precise and to the point. She worked around the clock literally—we had numerous late night phone discussions due to time zone differences, she was always well prepared! She also offered preeminent after sale services. We, beyond doubt, entrusted her with our property management including rentals, tenting, maintenance etc. She is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with (and I have worked with quite a few). She made our house shopping experience not only hassle free, but an enjoyable one.

Our family has been looking for a home in the Palo Alto area for two years. Gloria understood our needs and explained the pros and cons of the different neighbourhoods and lots. Finally, Gloria showed us our ideal home and helped us to close the deal within one week at very satisfactory terms. She is also very attentive to our after sales needs and promptly responds to any questions and issues. This is very important as we live overseas and it is challenging to follow up from out of town. I highly recommend Gloria as a professional and realtor whether you are looking to buy or sell a home.
My wife & I worked with Gloria to buy our first home in San Carlos. She was amazingly helpful for us throughout the whole process, and we are extremely thankful for having her with us.
Gloria is incredibly attentive and professional while she is working with you. For us, she was always available to help us see a property. She was always there when she said she would be – a super-important but under-rated trait you really want to have. She also made sure we made the right decisions for ourselves – never pressuring us into anything.
Gloria gave us amazing guidance during the home buying process as well. Never being pushy, she gave us great advice about drawbacks and features that we would not have otherwise thought of. Her experience, especially in the bay area, helped us understand the best parts of the neighborhoods we were looking at. And when it came to to make an offer & close, she had terrific loan agent recommendations that helped us a lot.
Most importantly, Gloria was tremendously effective in the offer & closing process. Her talents & professionalism here helped us win the home we wanted – even competing with all-cash offers. She is amazingly organized and follows through with precise efficiency. She helped us close on our new home in less than 16 days and move in quickly.
My wife & I fully trust Gloria, and without hesitation recommend working with her for anyone trying to buy or sell a home in the bay area.

Gloria helped us sell our home in Willow Glen. She secured a sale price that exceeded the high end of our expectations, which was GREAT, but what made the entire sale process really remarkable was the smooth and stress-free experience we had thanks to Gloria’s attention to detail. The entire experience working with her was wonderful.
When we decided to sell our home, Gloria and her partner Omar presented us a plan to prepare the home, and a concrete timeline for the sale. The home preparation and staging were done in a highly professional and efficient manner, key steps I believe in ensuring we received multiple offers. They guided us in analyzing the pros and cons of the competing offers, negotiated the best deal for us, and communicated with us constantly.
Working with Gloria was a pleasure. Throughout what can be a stressful time, she operated with the highest level of integrity, professionalism and responsiveness. I’d highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Bay Area.
