Bought a home in 2014.

I would to take a few minutes to tell you about Jenny and Michael Chen. We met a few months ago when I called their number from a house for sale in my neighborhood. From the very start they were helpful. My original call to them I was not ready to purchase. I was making inquiries as to how someone with unique challenges would be able to purchase a home. I have really felt that Jenny and Michael really cared about making this possible and worked hard to do just that. We are now a few days away from closing on our beautiful home. If you are thinking about buying whatever your situation Jenny and Michael are really on your side!

Sold a home in 2006.

What struck me first was how they showed houses with their son and daughter. I immediately trusted these realtors more than others because hey they were all in it together. They were kind and effective. I got an email to write a review, and let me just say I rarely do that because honestly I don’t know what to say about businesses and companies that I work with. However, I do know that Jenny and Michael are well qualified because my wife and I did not have to do anything to sell our house and get a Loan commitment letter for a future home (which we are still searching for contact me please if you are selling in Palo Alto). Thanks to them we sold our home in San Mateo and got a great offer and we are set for buying!

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $750K in Silver Terrace, San Francisco, CA.

As a first time buying a home, working with MC Investments was the best part of the whole process. Purchasing a house in the Bay Area is a very scary and stressful process, but Michael and Jenny were extremely helpful by providing a lot of guidance throughout the time of buying my house. I was very pleased of how convenient it was to contact them by email and for them to respond faster than I could have ever expected. Although there are too many things to like about MC Investments, I think the main things I valued most while working with Michael and Jenny was their experience of the market, how they were always one step ahead, and that they were very professional. Since they predicted the prices very well, I didn't feel unprepared when making my offers and I knew that if any questions came up, Michael and Jenny will always be able to find the answers. They got me a Loan Commitment Letter from the bank it was a great help to make my offer look better than the rest! I was surprised at how effective that was. With Michael and Jenny's "One-stop, full service" ability for real estate and loan needs, I know that I'll be working with them in the future when I sell my first home as well. I definitely recommend them to anyone! Thanks!

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $750K in Bernal Heights, San Francisco, CA.

If you are looking for a realtor that is willing to work hard, then go to Michael and Jenny. Before we found them, we had been looking for an investment property for several months and had made some offers that did not come through. There was a great deal in San Francisco that my boyfriend and I really wanted, so we can to Jenny and Michael for help after receiving one of their flyers. I believe that their expertise in the buying process was the main reason that we were successful in completing the transaction. Even though we were not purchasing a million dollar home, they treated us like we were million dollar customers. Jenny always responded quickly to phone calls or emails. Both were very proactive during the purchase process and kept in contact with the banks so that we could close quickly.

Sold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $650K in Pacifica, CA.

A BIG THANK you for making my trade-up buying and selling process so easy. You and your team are real Professionals and I am glad to have worked with you in making my sale and purchase a SUCCESS!! I was so close on giving up on selling my home, but was blessed to find a good Agent who convinced me that we could do this and win and that I had nothing to lose. They created an auction effect when they used group showings to bring people to my home and we ended up getting 2 offers that were very close to what we dreamed of. Then, I ended up moving to a house that fitted me and my family in Pacifica and I am loving the bigger rooms, newer appliances, and better location. They are so positive, upbeat, and easy to work with and took the time to explain everything to me along the way. It was really that easy. Really, nothing but the best. You are in good hands!!

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Foster City, CA.

I worked with several real estate agents and Michael and Jenny were by far the most qualified. Searching for properties on Craigslist seems like a complete waste of time in retrospect because once I began working with them, the process because less time-intensive for me and much more effective. One of the best aspects of my experience working with Michael is that he was able to show me properties that I liked in many different neighborhoods. His knowledge and connections definitely extend beyond any single particular neighborhood. Another would be the great programs they offer and specialize in because to be honest, I was not the most qualified buyer. I had been renting and the rent was just getting too high, but I did not have a large amount of savings or excellent credit. However, they worked with me to make my offer look presentable and Jenny secured a solid, creative loan for me. I've been in my new home in Foster City for 3 months now and I can’t say that I have any complaints. Thanks!

Sold a home in 2012.

Earlier this year Michael and Jenny sold my house in South San Francisco. My house was a fixer-upper and I was planning on selling it as is. They suggested some improvements and repairs and sought out vendors who would do the work and wait to get paid from escrow. Since I had been unemployed for 2 years, I had no way to pay for these. Their efforts made it possible and I EASILY came away with an extra 7-10% over what I would have had to settle for otherwise, even after paying for the work. Thanks to their One-Stop full service.



On top of that, I had to move out of the Bay Area due to an illness when the house was listed. They handled everything with aplomb. Michael oversaw all of the improvements. In at least two instances that I am aware of, he actually performed two of the repairs himself, saving me more money.

You would be hard-pressed to find better agents than them.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2010 for approximately $625K in Los Prados, San Mateo, CA.

Michael and Jenny are great realtors that have qualities unlike all the others I have dealt with. The key aspect I found unbeatable was their "One-Stop Full Service". I had a condo in SF that I lived in, but my life had just bore our son and we wanted to live in an area with a better school system. On top of that, my job required a long commute, because I work in San Mateo. The problem was, I could not qualify for a loan because I did not have enough savings. So I shopped around, and I found out about MC Investments. They were able to sell my condo using their open houses, and minimum bid style of getting offers. They made the pictures look great and advertised my condo to the best of their ability. We had plenty of options to choose from then because of the many offers we received from their offer acquiring system. While my condo was being sold, my wife and I worked closely with Michael and Jenny to find a home in the San Mateo County to allow my son to have access to an excellent public school system, and also I could shorten my time spent from home to work. As my condo was being sold, Michael and Jenny were helping us secure and qualify for a mortgage for our new house in San Mateo. 1 week after the condo in SF was sold, we had signed the papers to a new house, which we got for a great price, and we had the loan to back us up. Their connection to the banks, and experience helped us move forward and improved our life immensely. We've lived in our new home for 8 months now and other than a few minor fix-ups, we have had a smooth and enjoyable stay. Thanks!

Sold a Single Family home in 2001 for approximately $425K in Daly City, CA.

I’ve known Jenny and Michael for over 10 years. This team delivers excellent results every time: Jenny and Michael sold my mother’s house in Daly City in 2 weeks. They showed hundreds of people in 2 group showings (open house), bringing us SIX offers, and sold it for 106% of asking price. At the same time we bought a house in Burlingame. Their pricing strategy really works. With their Guarantee Sale Program, we attracted more buyers especially for those people who owned a house that had to be sold first in order to buy ours. My husband and I were very skeptical about this program to begin with, but the results were pretty good.
