Sold a home in 2014.
Working with Helen was a pleasure. Helen did a great job of keeping me updated on progress, provided sound recommendations through the negotiation process, and I always felt she had my interest at heart. Helen is a wonderful realtor and I highly recommend her.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $750K in Alameda, CA.
I met Helen about a year ago looking for a home in Oakland for my family of four with my two kids. Her warm and straightforward personality makes us feel very comfortable from the start. We really feel she is putting our best interest first and foremost and are sincerely helping us find our dream home at the price point we can afford. During our house hunting journey with Helen we have also realized that she is very organized, experienced and knowledgeable. She has always found out all there is to know about each houses we were about to view ahead of time before we actually go view them. She said she wants to make sure she has the answer on any questions we might have on any of them. After every appt she helped us see the pros and cons of each one of them, so we better understand the market trend and with that information we could make the final decisions ourselves.

Helen understands the importance of good school district for my kids, she later introduced us to the Bay Farm area in city of Alameda. She went the extra mile to tour us around the whole island. Showing us houses, schools, parks, libraries, downtown, shoreline and beaches. We immediately fall in love with this city! After helping us submit a few offers, she finally got our offer accepted to our dream home. She did it by strategizing our offer in price and terms. Additional to that she helped wrote a personal cover letter about us as a family to reach out to the sellers. We know it is not easy to win the bid in this sellers market and she did it for us with a price we are happy with, not over pay at all. The whole buying transaction with Helen from beginning to end was so smooth and on time. Helen still stay in contact with us after our sale to advise us on how to keep our house in good condition. We highly recommend her to all the people we know.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Chinatown, Oakland, CA.
I selected Helen Kwong to sell a rental property in the Oakland Chinatown area because she was bi-lingual and for her expertise on the potential buyer at this specific location. As a client, I can really appreciate her as qualified professional when she patiently explained the required documents and city/state regulations in a clear and concise manner. Because I was so pleased with her easy going nature and her approachable personality, I kept Helen as a realtor to find a suitable replacement for the income property. Helen has been showing me countless properties over the several months and she has always been punctual with our appointments, whether it is to view a property or to sign paperwork or during a bid offer. Helen provided me with guidance when needed with a complete understanding that the ultimate decision will be based on her client’s decision. I fully endorse Helen as an agent to represent a seller and as a buyer.

Showed home in 2014 in Oakland, CA.
My husband and I met Helen about a month ago when we first set out on our search for our first house/condo. Helen has been helping us out with this process ever since. She brings such great energy with her and is a joy to talk to. Initially, I was a bit confused about the way all of this works -- it seemed like a tedious process -- but Helen took the time to explain every detail to us. She is very patient and she is a good listener. She sent over her buyers' guide and also sat down with us after every viewing and talked us through it. We have very specific requirements and she has taken everything into account and turned this into a very pleasant experience.

Although we have not found our home yet, since we are still early into this process, but we are confident that with Helen's help, that day is not too far away now.

I would absolutely recommend Helen to all buyers, especially first-time home buyers like us. She is not only a thorough professional but also a warm and wonderful human being.

Very concise and follow up on every issue. I felt very comfortable with her from the start as she guided us through each step with care, diligence, and a great sense of humor. Helen did an awesome job through the entire purchasing process. Having an agent that we could trust like that was priceless. Thanks again Helen !!

Sold a home in 2014.
Helen found our present condo and negotiated a price we were very happy with. She then listed and sold our previous condo, helping to overcome an obstacle to complete the transaction. Very responsive to clients needs.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Chinatown, Oakland, CA.
Her service is exemplary. She goes through extra miles to help me out. She explained the residential purchase agreement in detail with me without knowing whether I am going to purchase the property or not. She is very patient, kind, and informative. She helps others without reserve and does not expecting anything in return. I recommended her to my friend and he is very pleased with her service as well. I highly recommend her to whomever needs to sell or buy properties.

Sold a home in 2013.
We got to know Helen through a letter she sent to homeowners on behalf of her buyers. The letter demonstrated her customer care and professional skills -- so much so that when we were ready to sell a house, we went directly to Helen. It was a smooth process in which Helen stayed on top of things and took care of matters before they may become issues. She is good at understanding clients' needs and helps realize them through win-win approach. Needless to say the transaction was successful.

Helen is also outgoing and upfront, which is very important to us. She keeps us updated without having to be prompted. It is very assuring and worry free working with her. We hope more people will get to experience this level of excellence.
