Ratings & Reviews

I got to know Andy Ghan two years before I finally placed my property in the market. I was impressed with the regular flyers he mailed out showing the constant listings and sales he achieved in the community. I decided to call him and he immediately responded, and presenting me with a complete profile packet on my property the following day. I found Andy to be very professional, efficient, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. And to top it all, he obtained for me the best offer possible! What more can anyone ask!

Sold a home in 2015 in Parkside, San Mateo, CA 94404.

We are very fortunate to have Andy help us sell our home in less than 3 weeks. Andy not only demonstrates his expertise in professional real estate knowledge but also shows his extended care and support to our family. Andy is an exceptional realtor whom I highly recommend.

Bought a home in 2014 in Parkside, San Mateo, CA 94404.

I've always telling my friends Andy is a decisive factor in my home purchase. He is the man. Like many first time buyers, house purchase is the biggest purchase in my life, and I decide to be the "bad cop" from day one - I scrutinize every single piece of information and assume they are fake unless it is proven otherwise. This means I request more information/ask more questions than any other time. The outcome is, we end up with a house that is way better than what we started with, but now when we look back, we are so grateful that we took Andy's advice. Due to bad luck and my "bad cop" mind set, our journey has more churning and back and forth than most people, and Andy has always been supporting my best interest, even for times when it does not seem to be the case at first. His excellent service helped me to handle those troublesome situations. His control and influence over the process is unparalleled and even at times we start losing faith, it always ends up with Andy being right. I've already been recommending Andy to every single friend of mine when they want to be a buyer, simply because I don't believe any one else can be as good - and in most story I hear, most agents come not even close to what Andy does.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $1.075M in Belmont, CA.

We chose Andy because a friend referred him to us. After working with him, we are happy to choose him as our buying agent. In the long home searching process, Andy was very patient and never put pressure on us. He was quick for all inquiries and knew the market very well. With his generous help, we moved to our new home this year after almost one year since we started home hunting. Overall, Andy is awesome.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Foster City, CA.

We came to Andy through a friend, who purchased her investment property in San Mateo through him. She highly recommended Andy for his diligence, responsiveness, patience, knowledge in the local real estate market and strong negotiation skills, all of which contributed to his success in helping us got our dream investment property. Our property is a multi-family unit in a highly sought after area in San Bruno (with top school district in Millbrae). There were 17 offers (including all cash offers) for this property after the weekend open house, and ours was definitely not the top one. We had thought that most likely we wouldn't be able to get the house as the competition was so fierce, but Andy wasn't ready to give up. He spent a lot of time talking to the two listing agents (including one whom he knew and was on vacation in Hawaii), explaining to them why among all the people who submitted offers, we should be picked. I don't know exactly how he did it, but we were selected as one of the 3 buyers to enter into the second round of bidding. He then guided us through the counteroffer process, modifying our contract terms (while keeping the offering price and terms reasonable) to make it more appealing to the seller. Eventually Andy's effort pays off and our offer was accepted. After delivering the good news, he immediately started to help us shop for a loan. Through Andy, we found a lender who offers great service and very competitive rate. We managed to close within the 30 days timeline and are now the proud owner of our new property. The whole process was very smooth, but we know that without Andy's help, we wouldn't have got this beautiful house. We would definitely seek his help again when we have real estate - related questions/needs, and we want to share our experience with other people out there who are still looking for a good agent. There are a lot of agents out there, but good ones are hard to come by. Andy is certainly one of the top agents.

Sold a home in 2015 in Millbrae Meadows, Millbrae, CA 94030.

We bought our desired house in Millbrae this spring, as a new buyer, it took us a while to choose a nice agent and we are so glad to have Andy as our agent. He is knowledgable and patient for every question we asked and give us very useful suggestions. Instead of pushing us to buy a house, he stands in our side to help us find the house we really need. Also, he has a good social work which is very helpful when you want to put an offer and his excellent negotiation skill help us get the house in a relatively lower price. Most importantly, even after the deal, he is still very helpful to solve any problems we met. He keeps the records very well so that when we need something we missed, he will send us again. It makes us feel this is not one-time deal but is a life-long guarantee. We will definitely recommend him to our friends.

Sold a home in 2015 in Parkside, San Mateo, CA 94404.

I never knew Andy before and I found him from Zillow website since I have no clue where to find a right agent. After talked to a few agents, Andy impressed me the most. He is very knowledgeable about the area I was living. And most importantly, he is very honest and reliable. I felt as if he looked out for our best interests rather than just trying to make a sale. He took care of almost everything and the only thing we needed to do is sign off the papers at the end. I have to say that we are very thankful to Andy, he made me feel selling a house is such an easy thing. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for representation to sell or buy a home!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $1.075M in Foster City, CA.

Andy is a really nice, helpful and professional agent. My wife & I relocated to Bay Area last year, and we really want to purchase a townhouse in Foster City. We find Andy. And we just got our townhouse last month in our first bid. Andy is so helpful to provide all the information I need, also with the all the details we need to prepare. So when we find the dream house we want, we asked Andy for help, it's so smooth that we get it. We highly recommend Andy.

Sold a home in 2015 in Parkside, San Mateo, CA 94404.

It has been a great pleasure to have Andy as our agent. He did a very impressive job in helping us to find a home. Throughout the whole process, Andy checked our requirements from time to time and didn't seek to persuade us to buy any houses we may not like in a short time, but tell us which house is right and give us approximations on what price is more likely to get the home. He is surely different from a lot of other agents who generally just persuade people to buy whatever house with some arbitrarily high bid. He is very accurate in both the home seeking and pricing. He is very honest and I trust him fully.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.375M in Millbrae, CA.

Andy is the best real estate agent that I have worked with in my 20+ years living in three different states in US. He has helped us to sell the house timely during our recent moving. He understands the local housing market very well and has the right strategy for home improving, listing and selling. Andy is the right choice for a satisfactory deal.
