Deborah and Christian are really great. What more can I say...They are professional, proficient, and fun - all at the same time. They know the market, the processes, and the right people to connect you with in order to get the home you are looking for. I found this closing process to be one of the best from all the homes we have closed. Deborah is super-responsive. I found it surprising, the rate at which Deborah would return my emails - my many, many emails, even late at night. I always felt she was right there, listening to our needs. She had good intuition of the type of properties that would work for us - and she was very good about taking me to the properties I wanted to see (because you never know...) I also found both Deborah and Christian to be sensitive and accommodating to our needs as a young family with a toddler. Many times Christian watched over and played with my son as I looked at homes - and parking was tough during open houses. It was all those little things - the way they were both so sensitive to our personal needs that made a big difference in the amount of trust and confidence I had in them. Deborah produced our paperwork under tight timelines accommodating our busy schedules (often one or us out of town) and really worked hard to make the process smooth and efficient. I would highly recommend Deborah and Christian, and I look forward to working with them again!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $975K in Mission, San Francisco, CA.

We recently worked with Deborah to purchase our first condo in San Francisco. From start to finish, we had a great experience with her. She took the time to explain the home buying process in detail and always patiently listened to our questions and concerns as first time home buyers. She provided honest feedback about prices, neighborhoods, and particular properties we viewed, but never pushed us to make an offer on a house that we weren't completely comfortable with. Also, Deborah was incredibly responsive and always available both by e-mail and by phone and often responded within a few minutes. During our entire home search, Deborah was able to make it to every open house we wanted to go to and adjust to our schedule without exception. In the end, Deborah's extensive experience and excellent relationships with the other agents in the area helped us land our dream home and we would love to work with her again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.775M in Bernal Heights, San Francisco, CA.

Buying a home in San Francisco can be a daunting proposition, especially for first time buyers like my wife and me. From the moment we met Deborah we knew that we had found the right person to help us navigate the process. She has an incredible depth of knowledge about the real estate market in San Francisco, and this proved invaluable time and time again. If you’re new to the city her local knowledge will be an enormous asset in finding the right neighborhood; if you’re a long-time resident you’re bound to learn something new about what it’s like to own property here. She also has an amazing network and was able to get us into a lot of places before they were listed. She was quick to give us candid advice on properties and we never felt any pressure to bid on something that didn’t feel like a great fit. When it came time to close on our house, she did an amazing job of helping us manage the dizzying array of paperwork and the various underwriters, title companies, lenders, insurers and notaries required to make the transaction happen. She made herself available 24/7 through phone, email and text throughout the entire process, and on the rare occasion she couldn’t meet up with us at a specific time Christian was there to provide a seamless backup. If you’re considering working with Deborah, I can say unreservedly that you should just call her up right now and make it happen.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $775K in Central Sunset, San Francisco, CA.

My husband and I have just moved to the country and we had no idea how to purchase a property in San Francisco and it is a very difficult market to start with. We are lucky to work with Deborah. She is very knowledgeable regarding SF properties e.g. giving great advice on which neighborhood we should consider and pros and cons of a specific property etc. Deborah is amazingly efficient. Any questions we have, she will come back with answers almost immediately. Some of our offer documents need to be done in the evening, and she is always there to support and working late hours to have things done. Most important of all, I think Deborah dose care about us and provide suggestions from our point of view. For us, she is not any agent but a friend who gives the best, honest and realistic advice. I would strongly recommend her!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Diamond Heights, San Francisco, CA.

Deborah was assigned to me via my company's relocation program and came very highly recommended, and she totally exceeded my expectations. This is the fourth property I have bought and I would say her experience and skills far surpass any Realtor I have worked with in the past. Most importantly, it is obvious that she really had my best interest at heart. She took her time in really understanding me and my likes and dislikes, was patient, and most of all was strategic in her approach in finding and getting the home that is perfect for me. Despite how competitive the San Francisco real estate market is, she got me an amazing property in the city at the perfect price. I want to buy more properties just so that I can work with her again!!

Bought a home in 2014 in Noe Valley, San Francisco, CA 94114.

Deborah represented me as a seller and buyer. As a seller, she helped me sold my condo for $210K over asking for a tri-level condo, in a busy, not desirable street in just 9 days. As a buyer, she helped me purchase a brand new top floor condo, at less than asking price (which is never heard of, in this fiercely competitive market.) She and Christian are the hardest Realtor I've ever worked it in san francisco. There hasn't been a time when I text or email her (before, or after we've closed both transactions that she hasn't gotten back to me within a few hours, if not immediately.)

Deborah's negotiating skills, and her brand name, are crucial to both transactions. In this highly competitive market, if you want to buy something, you want to work with an agent who they've worked with before, or heard of based on their reputation (she ranked #1 @ Zephyr in Q1 of 2014.) This could mean the difference of getting top dollars for the home you want to sell or getting your offer accepted right away vs rejected or ignored over other offers.

Bought a home in 2014.

If you are looking for an agent to sell your property or buy a property in San Francisco, consider working with Deborah Nguyen!

I was referred to Deborah thru a colleague who successfully bought a property in the city with her help. I interviewed a few agents at the same time but realized Deborah was the right fit since the first time I talked to her. She is very knowledgable about the competitive market in SF and does a thorough assessment of your situation, possibilities and needs. I was very impressed how much she knew about every single property once we started our search. She has bought or sold them many times before!

Deborah gives you the facts about home buying in SF and while helps you make decisions, she doesn't make decisions for you. She understands this is tough process especially when it comes to making offers and respects the clients' emotions! Basically she makes this a lot easier for you and goes thru all this with you very professionally! I HIGHLY recommend working with her and would work with her again and again with no reservations.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $1.25M in Alamo Square, San Francisco, CA.

They say that in life, you need a good doctor, a forgiving priest, and a clever accountant. Well, in the San Francisco Bay area, you also need a savvy real estate agent. It is with that context that I highly recommend Deborah Nguyen. Selling and buying a house is incredibly personal for most people. Deborah understand this, but also understands the longer term financial implications of these transactions and I cannot highlight enough how invaluable Deborah’s intelligence, thoroughness, and willingness to ask the difficult questions (both of her clients and of the agent on the other side of the transaction) are during this process. She is an incredible agent. She makes you feel like you are constantly one step ahead. Deborah has represented my wife and I on both sides of a transaction and I would remiss if I did not point out where she excelled: Sellside: • Establishing a list price to ensure broad interest and subsequently, a competitive bidding process • Staging a property to make it incredibly attractive to would-be buyers • Ensuring that the $ you put into the sales process (inspections, staging, home improvements) will have a significant return • Understanding how to run a negotiation to maximize value • Building great rapport with other agents which makes for a more seamless transaction

Buyside: • Knowing San Francisco inside and out and how to put each neighborhood in context • Knowing what a property will ultimately sell for, regardless of the list price • Knowing lenders who not only offer great rates, but also are easy to work with • Having great relationships with contractors who can put the finishing touches on a property post-close, and do quality work at a great price • Knowing the home improvement opportunities that a property might afford as well as the long term challenges that need to be considered if/when you want to sell down the road

Deborah has represented my wife and me as well as several of our close friends – and she has executed those transactions flawlessly. When someone mentions to me that they want to buy or sell in the city and are looking for an agent, Deborah will always get my endorsement.

Sold a home in 2014 in Daly City, CA 94017.

This is the second time I've worked with Deborah. She was so supportive and there throughout the entire process. I thought she had the a great network of other realtors to talk to about my property and was connected with partners (e.g. staging company and title company) that also were great. Throughtout the process, I had no concerns that something that would "drop". My place sold so quickly -- partly due to the nature of the SF market -- but partly due to her efforts and thinking of how to list. I would have no hesitation to work with Deborah going forward.
