Thai listed our home for sale and sold it over asking price. He was very knowledgeable, smart, responsive, and very friendly. The process was smooth and quick. We appreciate his hard work and would definitely ask him to list our next home. Thank you Thai.

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

We went to Thai to refinance our mortgage for a better rate. He is very honest, forthright and knowledgeable. We were presented several different options, each of which pointing out the pros and cons for each choice. We were then able to make an informed decision on which financial avenue to peruse. The whole process was very easy and painless, with email and phone updates during each phase of the loan refinance. Throughout the entire process I felt well informed on the status of my loan, and what to expect next. Thai has great customer service and I would recommend him to anyone looking to process a home loan.

Bought a home in 2014 in West San Jose, San Jose, CA 95117.

Thai was referred to us by a colleague at work, who bought a beautiful home in Willow Glenn with Thai's help. He is a great real estate agent, very professional and is quite knowledgable about the structural aspects of a house, re-modelings, financials and what not. The main reason we went with Thai is because he is a one stop shop, and a highly reliable one!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.3M in Glenmoor, Fremont, CA.

My husband and I worked with Thai at Crystal Estate when we purchased our home. We were impressed with Thai's professionalism. Buying a home is never easy and is always stressful, but Thai worked hard to make it as stress-free as possible and took time to explain everything to us. He was always available to answer questions and truly made me feel like we were his only clients (I know we weren't!). He kept calm under pressure and was very detail-oriented and caught errors on the closing documents. I would not hesitate to work with Thai in the future or recommend him to anyone looking for a Realtor.

Sold a home in 2012 in Willow Glen, San Jose, CA 95125.

Thai provided a top-noch professional experience combined with genuine care I had not witnessed in the industry. I plan to go to him for all future real estate transactions and refis. Thai personally engaged the processor for my refi and secured an amazing rate for a non-owner occupied underwater (at the time) property. No one I know who refied in the same time span got as favorable conditions and interest rate. Moreover, Thai will be honest with you about your situation, impeccably timely with communications and actions, and has a huge network to help you improve your new or for sale home. It's a best case scenario, and I'm thankful to Thai for his hard work and generous nature. He is truly one in a million.

Bought a home in 2013 in Stockton Metropolitan Airport, Garden Acres, CA 95215.

As a relative newcomer to the Bay Area Thai has provided an excellent service to my family and I. His automation of the MLS kept us in the loop regarding all new entries to the market. He was always accomodating when we wanted to see a house. During the closing process Thai handled everything very smoothly, found us a great deal on our mortgage and kept us updated as to the purchase progress. Thai has great knowledge of the housing and mortgage markets and i've found his advice to be very good indeed (I checked his advice against long-time bay area residents and price checker sites). I wholeheartedly recommend Crystal Estates.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Alum Rock-East Foothills, San Jose, CA.

“Dreaming to own a house” it’s not an easy process on these days; however, our dream comes true after we met Thai Nguyen, Broker, GRI, and CEO at Crystal Estates. He is extremely bright, knowledgeable and very professional. He helped us to present every transaction no matter how stressful or complication of those. We were really enjoying work with Thai, because of his honesty, responsiveness, experience and expertise. We would highly recommend and will always pass his name to our families, friends, and coworkers. Give him a try and you never ever regret it.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Morgan Hill, CA.

My wife and daughter and I are very fortunate to have found Thai. He is highly dedicated, respectful, honest, patient, knowledgeable, informative and helpful. He takes pride in being an outstanding agent/broker and gives his clients the best service available. He has helped us with every single aspect there is to buying/owning a home. First he helped me get approved for an FHA loan, which I didn't think was possible because of my past foreclosure and bad credit.

Next, we looked at more than 50 homes over a six month period and put offers on most of them. It was very frustrating dealing with the listing agents and it was very difficult to get them to accept our FHA loan offer. Several agents basically told me that they wouldn't sell their house to me unless I used their lender. Even though, if I had agreed to this, Thai would receive less money since he wouldn't be brokering my loan, he told me to do whatever I need to get the house. There are a lot of agents/brokers out there that only care about how much money they make. They don't care about families that need a home. Thai truly cares about his clients and always has their best interest in mind.

The home we ended up buying did not accept our first offer and was also a short sale. Combined with our FHA loan, this took a lot of patience and persistence on behalf of Thai to get us our house. Up to the very end, even after we signed everything at the title company and gave them the down payment, other people involved in the closing process were incompetent and almost forfeited our chance of buying our home. Again, Thai was on top of everything and got these people to do their jobs.

After we finally got our house, we needed a contractor to remodel it before we could move in with our 10 month old daughter. I had no idea where to start or what I needed to do. Thai again came to the rescue and acted as a project manager for us. He connected us with a couple of contractors who could meet our modest budget but also give us what we wanted. Thai also did most of the designing and planning. He even took us shopping for a lot of the big price items and he knows where to go to get good deals. My granite counters were $260 a slab! He did a lot of shopping for me even on his own. Every time he saw a good deal on something he'd let me know.

I could go on an on with positive things to say about Thai Nguyen. Like how he also got my home owners insurance for a pretty good rate. But I think I've said plenty already. Thai Nguyen is a very nice person and a great agent/broker. Expect the best from him.

Property manage a Single Family home in Santa Teresa, San Jose, CA.

Thai helped my husband and I refinance our home. It wasn't an easy task and the financing department lost some of our documents and we had to "do-over" after all was notarized and submitted. Thai was there every step of the way, assisting us and making sure financing and recording went on without issues and on a timely manner. And he did! You want somebody in your corner, Thai is your Guy!!!! I highly recommend him for all your financing, re-financing, selling and buying needs. He's OUTSTANDING!!! TGarcia

Bought a Townhouse home in 2009 for approximately $525K in Scotts Valley, CA.

Thai Nguyen, Broker, GRI, and CEO of Crystal Estates has always been very responsive and give me very resonable interest rate for refinancing as well as negotiation for my first home purchased since 2009. Thai is very patient and does not push you to buy/sell or refinance, rather he does give you fair and reasonable comparisons for all interest rates and price(buy/sell) which appropriate for your range. He will not make you feel like he is taking advantage of you and he is very straight forward with what he can or cannot do for you. Thai is very knowledgeable for the area that he works on and he does has a lot of connections that will make it easy for refinancing process.Thai has always given me the lowest reasonable interest rates. I highly recommend Thai Nguyen to be your broker and/or real estate agent.
