I had a rental home that my family owned for about 30 years. It has been rented for over 25 years by the same tenant. Once they left, the home was pretty warn from use and was quite outdated, pretty poor shape. It was also located about an hour away. Not really knowing what my next steps would be, I found Lisa. We discussed doing a 1031 exchange, basically selling this home and buying a closer property as it would be much easier to manage moving forward. She helped me to hire a contractor, plan and executed a total remodel of the home, then sell it for current market value, actually slightly higher to my surprise. It sold in less than a week after listing the home!
Then we had the task of finding a new home within 45 days to avoid capital gains tax. She went with me to see many homes over the following weekend. We were lucky enough to find one we really liked. Lisa guided me on how much to offer. After some negotiations, we managed to win the deal from other buyers and was in contract soon after. We did this all within 2 weeks!
Once we finished with the purchase and I got the keys, Lisa even helped me to find tenants to rent the new home. I got the home rented in less than 2 weeks after buying the home!
I can't be more please with her service and professionalism. Her actions tell it all, I highly recommend her.

Lisa was recommended by a good friend of mine. I interviewed with several other realtors but after speaking with Lisa about 15 minutes I knew that we would sign with Lisa. She didn't give me the usual realtor speak with statistics and numbers, although that information was in a folder she later handed me. She was very personable and wanted to know what was important to me in selling my house. We discussed everything relevant and became fast friends! Lisa is always prompt, professional, and a go getter! She negotiated a very good price and our home sold quickly! She made the process very smooth and easy! We could not be happier.

Lisa Liu is a very responsible agent. She helps my wife & I find our dream house in San Leandro. Even though we are so picky for all the different demand (such as size of the house, location, traffics), she always find something to satisfy our request and don't give up. Also, she is doing a great job to follow up with us even though the deal is done & closed. My wife & I appreciate all the help she gave. Therefore, if we need to purchase another property, we are willing to find her as our agent again.

I live in China but I wanted to buy my parents a house who's living in the states. Lisa was highly recommended to me by a really good friend. Since I can't be there to go see the homes with my parents, Lisa took them on a few tours and helped them found their dream home. Lisa was there to help with the whole process and communicated with me even with my time difference in Asia. My parent's were very excited with the new home. Now I get to visit my parents often and have a place called home. My parents and I likes Lisa so much, we kept in touch and now became good friends. She's very nice, detailed, responsive and patience. I will strongly recommend her to my friends and anyone I know who wants to purchase or sell a home!

Lisa was a blast to work with. She had a lot of knowledge with multiple counties that I was house shopping for. She was always attentive, responsive, and extremely well coordinated. She was able to advise me on pricing and helped me save a ton of cash, and was able to help me negotiate a great deal on our home.
She worked seamlessly with my bank and we were able to close well ahead of the target date.

The procedure appear so easy and simple that we feel just make decision, sign on the reliable web she arranged, when we are outside USA.

We have been very lucky to have Ms. Lisa Liu as our agent in buying our house. When we first met, she left us a very nice impression from our conversation and her professional way in her service. She is a very responsible, active, helpful agent and has provided excellent service.
To find a suitable house, she has shown us many houses and provided professional and friendly advises. She is so patient that we feel uneasy for having troubled her too much, but she is always happy in helping and showing us many houses. She helped us to view about 100 houses, in all areas within 50 miles from SF, so that we could eventually identifies the best areas for our buying the house.
After identified the area, we left USA. She help take videos of the houses we are interested in and provided her professional comments, so that we could still identify the best options even though we are abroad. She is always patient and nice, and she just wanted us to get the best we want. We finally bought a house we like very much with her excellent service even though we are abroad. We feel that buying the house is so simple and easy even though we are aboard, thanks to the reliability, helpfulness and excellent service of Lisa.
Lisa is very nice and provides excellent service, and we now also let her to rent out our house for us, as we know that she will handle well for us even though we are abroad.

I had the pleasure of working with Lisa on the purchase of my first home. From the moment we met, I knew I was in good hands. Lisa is very knowledgeable in the Bay Area real estate market and went above and beyond to find a home that met my requirements and needs. Lisa made the entire home buying process a breeze. As a first time home buyer, I had many questions and she was always available to answer them no matter the day or time. I highly recommend Lisa if you are looking to buy or sell a home. They are very professional, hard working, and dedicated. I am so lucky to have had Lisa as my realtor. Thank you! You are the best!

Being the picky me, I was super stunned that Lisa knew exactly what I was looking for in a home. No matter in size, budget and preferred area of the property... SHE NAILED IT!
She wastes no time, she comes prepared and does her homework before we meet to view properties in the morning each time, to ensure all information is up to date. Knowing that there are competitions everywhere, we have to act fast on both ends. Therefore, we've found our new home in just the third meeting of viewing properties and that's just 2 short months of working together in total.
Lisa is super nice, friendly, understanding, hardworking and responsive. To the point where she has no off time, she even responds to my messages within minutes of sending it out and no matter what time of the day it was. She guides us through every step of the way, she explained to us very clearly to thinks we didn't understand, things we should look out for, things to expect or whatnot.
What I like best about Lisa is her passion and positive attitude towards her job. She/We would share our own positive and negative opinions on each property we've viewed. I didn't feel her being pushy or forceful of selling us just any property on the market that we didn't like or whatsoever.
Lisa now has all my attention! She'll be my go to realtor from now on and for all my needs in the future. I can't wait to share my whole experience with all my family and friends when I have my housewarming party. I will definitely refer Lisa to each and every single one of them that is planning to buy or sell.

When it comes to buying a house, Lisa is the dynamic one should be working with. Not only is Lisa knowledgeable about the housing market, she is efficient and prompt with her responses. There were multiple times when I texted or PM'd Lisa in the wee hours of the night asking for advices regarding a property, I've received responses within seconds or minutes. Otherwise, there's no doubt that she'd respond first thing in the morning. When it comes to placing the winning bid, Lisa makes sure that her clients gets the better end of the bargain by ensuring that her client is not overpaying for a property for what it's worth. She's also not afraid of telling her client when a bid is not strong enough. Even knowing so, she still doesn't mind moving forward in writing an offer and going through with the process just to satisfy the client's inquisitive. Lisa does her research prior to meeting with her clients, i.e. looking up the neighborhood and its comps. She's always prepared to address any concerns one may have regarding the property in question. I was impressed by Lisa's knowledge when she nailed my property's appraisal value! That's how good she is!!! When I was ready to put in an offer, within minutes of texting Lisa the offer amount, I would receive an email from her asking me to "DocuSign" the offer agreement. There's always communication between us. I had such a pleasure working with her during my home buying process. They made it so much less stressful than what it really is! I can't wait to work with her again in the future!
