Jeffrey is your advisor, strategist, negotiator and psychologist in real estate.
A good real estate agent has great connections in the real estate world. I have a readily available list of home improvement contractors (heating, roofing, structural, electrical, painting, plumbing etc.), one or two good handymen, a cleaning service, legal referrals and lawn service providers. I have personally used their services for my properties and referred them to my past clients.
An experience real estate agent can provide a comprehensive strategy to the home sellers to maximize their property exposure for maximum sales price; the home buyers to formulate their strength and contractual terms to stand out amongst other buyers; the real estate investors to maximize cash flow or identify appreciation potentials.
I am very good at helping clients to understand the geography, the schools, the traffic and the neighborhoods so that home sellers and buyers can leverage these information to achieve their goals.
Rather than taking a "them or us" approach to negotiation (which sometimes is the only approach), I will assess the connection between sellers and buyers as well with the other agents to unlock the true motives of the other parties. Often time, what an experienced real estate negotiator can get for your home's sales price is more than the commission you paid.
Home sellers will rely on real estate agents to guide them through the process of presenting their home to the public. For example, do you know that painting the walls in a different color than the ceiling will make the room appear larger to a buyer subliminally? Or that the seller will not be able to sell for maximum price if the list price is set too far below the market value (this is call "bracketing")?
Jeffrey has himself brought and sold his own homes five times. Those events are still vivid in his memory and so he understands the emotion and stress of the home selling and buying process. He can help you in this transitional period of your life as well.
He understands the importance of open and constant communication. He works in unison with clients to create a memorable, educational and enjoyable real estate and financing experience. He strives to create "raving fans" out of those he does business with and recognizes that a mutually beneficial long term relationship is in everyone's preference. Jeffrey takes special pleasure in assisting investment buyers to maximize their real estate dollar.
Jeffrey has lived in the Bay Area most of his life, with short stays in Southern California and Hong Kong. He graduated from San Jose State University majoring in Civil Engineering. Prior to his real estate career, he worked for various private engineering firms and government agencies conducting building structure and transportation designs. As such, his engineering skill comes in handy as a Realtor because he can spot possible structural and foundation issues in a home or what few simple, structural changes may greatly increase the functionality of a home, and therefore, its value. He has excellent communication skills and a penchant for attention to detail, as well as very sound management skills all of which help to make his real estate and financing transactions sound and smooth.
Jeffrey and his wife, Nora, currently live in Milpitas. Their dogs, cats and lizards are the pride of their lives. He volunteers as a powerpoint presenter at his church and is a supporter of various animal rescue organizations. He has lived and worked in San Jose, Fremont, Pleasanton, San Mateo, Morgan Hill and various Bay Area cities. This background has given Jeffrey an acute awareness of the needs and wants of families in the area. He knows the schools, the neighborhoods, the services and the benefits available and is a valuable information resource both for those new to the area as well as to those who are simply changing neighborhoods.
