Connie helped me bought my first home. She was very professional in this real estate business. She's very patient and would not push her client for making offers. Instead, she would give you all the information you need to help you make your own decision. Once you decide you want to buy, she would try her best to help you get your offer accepted. She's also very experienced in negotiating the price and writing very competitive offers in case there're multiple offers on the table. First time home buying can be very frustrating, but she tries to make the whole process easy for her client. There are quite a lot of paperwork during the process which looks intimidating and overwhelming. She would be very patient to explain to you all the question you have as much as she can. I would definitely recommend her.
Connie is well known as a buyer's agent.With her help,at least four friends of mine succeeded in purchasing their dream houses in the past 2 years.
However one thing you might not know about her,is she's also a very professional and successful listing agent.
What kind of listing agent you will choose when you decide to sell your house?A salesman who brought lots of data and charts to impress you but knows less about your house?An expert who gives you the facts about the market and your house but doesn't care about your opinions?No,at least I won't hire these listing agents.
I did interview several agents but realized Connie was the right fit since the first time I talked to her.She is very knowledgable about the market in the area,even every single property,because she has bought or sold them many times before! She puts in the extra effort to accommodate all of your needs,working closely with you at your pace every step of the way.She understands this is tough process especially when it comes to collect offers and respects the clients' emotions!
Pending in 7 Days!Closing in 40 Days at almost the listing price!Thanks to Connie and her assistant Janice,we made it!
I highly recommend Connie. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed!
Connie is the nicest realtor that I have ever met. She takes care of business rather quickly and efficiently. She is very thoughtful and thinks of everything. We would definitely recommend her to our friends. She is truly an A-class broker. When you are working with Connie, you can expect the best, she will take great care of you:) She is such a hard worker and she is extremely dedicated. She takes every home very seriously. She is both professional and fun to be around! She makes sure to take extra time out of her day to meet our needs. She is more than capable and very knowledgable. We couldn't be more satisfied with Connie! We love her very much.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $650K in Sabre Springs, San Diego, CA.
we were first time home buyers and Connie was referred to us through a good friend of ours. When we first met Connie, she gave us a lots information about the locations that we were interested in. By chatting with her for only a few minutes, she had already gave us a pretty good idea about the trend of the market, the pros and cons about the properties in various locations as well as the basic mortgage loan information. After a few meetings with Connie, we realize that Connie is not only a very professional realtor in the business, but also a very good friend to have in life. As a successful realtor, she does her business right. She treat all clients the same way, not matter if they are looking for 2 million valued house or 200k valued house. To Connie, she does the best job she could to everyone. I admired her for this. During the time when we were seeing houses with Connie, we sometimes talked about something in our daily life, and she gave us suggestions and opinions. She helped us find a few good contractors for us to renovate our home after the close of escorw. Her help saved us a lot time and energy. We are really thankful to her.
She did a lot more than a realtor was suppose to do. And I can tell from her face that she is enjoying all of these, helping her clients professionally or personally; and being their friend. Connie once told me that, she loves doing this realtor business b/c it let her meet many people and make many good friends. We are glad that we met with Connie. She is indeed a very good friend to have and she is indeed the best realtor in San Diego.
We found Connie from a friend. Connie is super knowledgeable about the housing market in North County. When we go to the house tour together, she always points out the pros and cons of a house (condition, location, and nearby schools). Connie always put our interest first. She puts no pressure on us at looking for houses. She is very patient and understanding when her customers have hard time to make a decision. Her negotiation skills and strategies are very valuable in current competitive housing market. She is always willing to share her information and knowledge. Now Connie becomes our family friend.
Around two months ago, I purchased my first house in San Diego and love my new home. I really appreciated Connie's professional help!
Connie always put the client's need as the first priority. She is very professonal, extremely knowledgeable, and always flexible, patient and responsive. For every new listing house in the market that meets your need, she will give you not only pros and also cons, and will provide you a comprehensive information. She never push and her goal is to let her client to get the house they like. Without her help, I don't think my house searching would be successful. Connie is a kind of person you can always trust. She is not just your agent but your friend!!!
I definitely recommend Connie! She is the best of the best!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in San Marcos, CA.
I purchased my first house on September, and now I have been living here. I love my new house, and I thank for my agent Connie so much.
When my friend recommended Connie I didn't think she could help me more. and I didn't trust her, but, during some time, I felt she was so good and so professional. and I like her. She can let me know why I need the house, what kind of house I need and how I should choose my house, I think her opinions are very important for me.
My English is not good, so she always uses Chinese language to talk to me first, then uses English language to connect the sellers' agent, you know, It's so hard and so tired, but she always shows her smile face to me, I think she's so beautiful. When she know the seller's reply and She provided me many professional and helpful suggestions to help me to make the decision of buying the house. This is a wonderful decision for me!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in Sabre Springs, San Diego, CA.
My wife and I purchased a house 3 months ago and have been living here since. We have to say big thanks to Connie that we are really enjoying the new house.
We chose Connie as our buyer agent because my friend highly recommended her. And yes, she is absolutely one of the best in her field and ALWAYS PUTS THE NEEDS OF HER CLIENTS FIRST. My wife and I were first time homebuyer and knew very little about the process prior to beginning. Connie made the whole process as easy as possible. She is extremely responsible but never pushed us. Whenever we got questions, asked for advices or wanted to see the houses we selected online, she was always there to help us. She went through all the details on the candidate houses we chose to visit and all the paperwork with professional introduction and patient explanation. Also, she guided us on transition from the renter to the home owner :) She provided us very professional suggestions based on our demand and has really deep understanding about the big market which is super helpful and important when you need to make such a big decision on purchasing a property.
We should say it's a wonderful decision for us to get this house and most important, it's a wonderful experience to work with Connie on making this decision! She deserves highly recommendation because her excellent work was absolutely beyond our expectation!
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $800K in San Diego, CA.
Then in 2008, we were first time home buyers with a baby on the way and Connie helped us every step of the way to find a home that suited us and our growing family. She was fully dedicated and always available despite our crazy work schedule to look at homes after her long work day. We truly appreciated her ability to be flexible with our schedule and helpful in the bidding war environment we encountered. Since we had very tight budget, she was strategic in putting our offers and her knowledge in maneuvers to win offers while staying in our budget. She was always patient and stands on the point of view of buyer’s benefit. She was on schedule with all the paperwork and steps needed to close on the home when our offer was accepted. Connie also recommended an excellent loan processor so that she was always one step ahead of everyone and always kept us in the loop. Working with Connie Zhao was a great experience. We had finally settled down in our dream house back in 2009. We were all happily living after.
Again 2013, we decided to sell-buy house switch to bigger place with a 4-year old for a growing family. Again we were very lucky to have Connie as our agent to sell our previous house and to buy a new house. This is tough work for agents and everything is about timing. Often buyer requires moving out in between “sell” and “buy”, which we were all afraid of with a 4 year old. Connie welcomes us back and she was highly experienced in selling homes as well. She made a lot of good suggestions in decorating and staging our previous house. She is hard-working and very responsive, quickly answers questions and is happy to provide detailed explanations and reasoning behind her advice, as well as suggesting different options. The outcome is that we sell our home within a month with 5 offers with a very satisfactory price!!! She didn’t charge us the agent fee in order for us to have enough funds to put down for a new house. One can imagine how grateful we are!!!! Then we were little intimidated by the competitive market and multiple offers for our new dream house. Connie was very patient in answering all our questions and concerns. She made us feel really comfortable and no question was a stupid question. Even though she is very busy we never felt hurried and she always had open time for us. We finally liked the house we wanted to bid on, Connie provided us with all the details and the data of the sales prices in the area, so we could make an informed decision. She also suggested that if we wanted to be competitive we should get an inspection done and helped us to find an inspector in short time we had before the offers were addressed .With all the preparation when we placed our offer, we got our dream house again. Guess what? She still used her commission to pay out closing cost. Oh My!!!
Connie Zhao is a true real estate professional, very responsive and responsible! She has a pleasant demeanor, and possesses an unrivaled knowledge that would be of great benefit to anyone in this highly competitive San Diego!
