Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Cherry-Guardino, Fremont, CA.
With Heidi's responsive assistance and professional knowledge, we successfully bought our first home after hunting for our dream home for over three frustrated months. We met Heidi at the open house and decided to have her to be our agent because her professionalism on presenting sellers' condo and answering our question about the property.
After we submitted our offer, we even got a chance to meet with the sellers right after they decided to accept our offer. We never expect such good thing could happen to us -- bought a house and made friend with the sellers. Heidi was the key for all of these.

Heidi has helped my dad sell his house. My dad chose Heidi, because she successfully sold a neighbor’s house very quickly, after it was on the market for a long time with another realtor.
My dad purchased a new property and then planned to sell his house to finance the purchase. We were under a tight timeline. We met on a Sunday and decided to have an open house the following weekend. This was a very ambitious timeline, but we decided to move forward. On Monday after our meeting Heidi’s cleaning and staging crew were already in the house. Staging was done on a Tuesday, photos were done on Wednesday, broker’s open was on a Thursday and open house was held on the weekend. Everything happened in one week.
We had 11 offers and more than a 120 people come through to see the house. We had offers that were close to 10% over the asking price. Everything was closed in less than a month from the open house date.
This was an incredible experience and the success of this sale was in large part due to Heidi.
First of all I must say that Heidi chose a specific strategy with respect to pricing of the house which proved very successful. She listened to my dad as to what final amount he wanted to have out of the deal. In fact after the closing, he received even more funds then he was aiming for.
Heidi was very efficient with her cleaning and staging crews. After the house was staged we were all in awe as to how it looked. The professional pictures of the staged house were simply amazing, and the video posting on real estate sites was absolutely great. She was very sensitive to potential demographic of the viewing clientele and immediately knew what would appeal to certain types of buyers.
Heidi was very professional throughout the whole process. She had several buyers of her own, but despite a potential for doubling her fee out of this deal, she recommended an outside buyer, based on that buyer’s loan situation and contingency requirements.
Throughout the process Heidi kept in touch and updated us in a timely fashion on all the developments. She met with us, whenever it was necessary, sometimes late at night.
Furthermore, she looked out for my dad’s interest throughout the process. She negotiated with buyers till the very end, and was able to have the buyers pay for the termite work. Again, she stood to gain nothing financially out of this additional benefit for my dad, since this was taking place at the time when neither side had any intention of pulling out. Her client loyalty is amazing and it showed itself in this as well as other details.
In summary, I think we were very fortunate to have Heidi on our team and the fast sale of my dad’s house happened only because of her. She is very pleasant to deal with, fair, flexible and smart in choosing specific sales strategy.
I would strongly recommend Heidi to anyone. I think she would always be her client’s loyal advocate and she would deliver as much as she possibly could.

For those looking for a first rate agent.
I engaged with Heidi Choe from a referral and found her to be knowledgeable and tenacious. I finally chose Heidi among others interviewed because of her tenacious nature. I wanted an agent that would not just list my property, but who would aggressively attempt to sell the property as well. Heidi’s recommendations for the preparation of the property and her professional staggers did an outstanding job in showing the full potential of my home. So much so I myself felt very proud showing it to the open public. I knew my location and the current upgrades would sell well, but I never imagined I could accomplish what Heidi did. Heidi sold my home herself in one week after listing and $50k over the asking price with excellent terms. This was a win win for both parties and I am sure once the new owners settle in they will be very happy. Heidi stayed with the process and though there were difficult issues to overcome Heidi stayed with all the elements and kept driving the issues to completion. I am very happy to have worked with Heidi and the results speak for themselves. I would use Heidi again and I definitely would recommend her to anyone that wants a true professional that can balance the representation of both sides properly.

Heidi helped us buy our new home and sell our current home. She is very approachable and talking to her frequently helped ease the various stresses involved in a home sale and purchase.
On the buy side:
Having seen our current home, Heidi was very perceptive of our needs and knew exactly which house we would like and would not. During the purchase process, she was an excellent buffer between the various parties and always a calming and reassuring presence.
On the sell side:
Heidi has an excellent crew to help get the house ready for an open house in a short period of time. She understands the market which helped us with staging and pricing the house appropriately.
Heidi recently helped us sell our house in Fremont. There were some bumps in the road, but Heidi dealt with everything with much professionalism and care. She does exhibit her motto of Integrity, Care, and Committment. Heidi works very hard to make sure her clients are happy and I really appreciated that.
Heidi did a wonderful job of helping get our house ready to sell. She works with a great team that helped us stage, clean, landscape, and photograph our house. She was always there for every appt. with these people. The house looked terrific and the flyers were beautiful. I couldn't believe it was my house in those pictures!
We hit some bumps in the road after we found a buyer. Heidi always kept us informed and was very responsive to our questions. I appreciated that Heidi sought out answers to our questions if she didn't know the info. and didn't feel like she needed to possess all the answers. It was definitely a learning experience for us all.
We did close escrow and are very happy! Thanks Heidi for all your help!
Response from Heidi on 09/05/2012
Thanks for choosing me to sell your home, as I know you interviewed many agents. I'm glad we obtained multiple offers many above asking price in the first weekend, and ultimately achieved the desired results despite the diffficult escrow. Most importantly is that your home sold exceeding the listing price, and that you're very happy with the service and outcome!!! Thanks again.

We worked with Heidi on a Fremont transaction in the Scott Creek area. Heidi helped us narrow down our selection in Fremont from a wide range of homes in different areas that we liked. With her knowledge of the Fremont neighborhoods, we were able to narrow homes we liked quickly versus homes we crossed off our list right away.
Heidi was always quickly responsive throughout the transaction process and was able to work with the listing agent effectively.
I would recommend Heidi to anyone looking for a home - buying a home is a big decision in anyone's life and it is important that you have the right agent working for you.
Heidi was truly outstanding. She is the very model of attacking a planned purchase or sale with a plan and excellent communication. I can say this because we both purchased and sold a home with her. When we were looking for a home she was very patient as we looked at home after home until we found the right one. It was actually fun! A month later we sold a home with her and she had a killer marketing plan ready to go. We had 18 offers in 1 week AND sold the house for over the asking price AND over the appraisal. But I think the best thing is that we NEVER had a problem reaching her. Our text messages were answered in minutes or seconds which is really helpful when you're a nervous client. She always seemed able to take our calls and if she didn't have the information right at that time we could count on her getting back with us quickly. We would not hesitate to use her again.
