Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2005 in Downtown, San Jose, CA.
Dr Richard Ho listed & actually sold my home 3 times during the last market high in 2005. As most buyers at that time only had 0- 3% down the first 2 buyers had difficulty qualifying and needed to bail out. The third buyer was selling a condo and was qualified and ready to go with $400k down. My contract was very complicated and also included a rent back option - as sellers were were all asking for the sky at that time, so was I. Due to last minute completely unforeseen circumstances beyond anybody's control I then actually needed to cancel the transaction and Dr Ho was very understanding, even though as listing agent he really sold my home 3 times. From experience with the toughest cases I can tell you if there is a .00001% chance that Dr Ho can close the deal for the buyer or seller, Dr Ho will make it happen, other agents will give up.

Sold a home in 2009.
Dr. Richard Ho has been our realtor or been involved in at least five different real estate sales or acquisition transactions, as well as being our agent who located tenants for rental properties. I hire Dr. Richard Ho when I want a streamlined approach to real estate with results. The number of times he has been hired in a realtor capacity is a testimony of his high degree of professionalism, knowledge, expertise and, what counts for the client, satisfaction and results. Dr. Richard Ho is very results focused, thinking creatively when the need presents itself, conventionally or uniquely. He is a creative thinker who makes deals and goals happen. His dedication to his profession is connected to his success level. He follows a tranaction from A-Z, to assure all goes well, staying on top of the process throughout with excellent follow-through. He is very time efficient, which is important to certain clients, when timing is critical. He is very willing to explain any and all aspects of real estate, is personable and friendly. His professionalism is impeccable. Five stars plus for Dr. Richard Ho--tried and true, hope he can come through for you, too!

Bought a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $275K in West San Jose, San Jose, CA.
As a first-time home buyer, I was delighted to have worked with Richard to acquire my first property. He is extremely knowledgeable yet very patient to answer all my questions and address my concerns. He is not pushy at all and enjoyed showing me properties without pressuring me to sign an offer. He always asked me to think it over carefully before making an offer. I highly value Richard?s professionalism and thoughtfulness for his clients? best interest, instead of his own. When I finally decided to buy the property, Richard went all his way to negotiate with the listing agent. With his excellent negotiation skills, it turned out to be a win-win situation and both the seller and the buyer were happy. In the following days Richard took care of everything needed to close escrow, ranging from mortgage to inspection. I the buyer rested care-free and was able to focus on my daily job. It was a wonderful and successful experience to buy a property with Richard! I will surely use his service again in future, as well as refer him to my friends and colleagues.

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $900K in Cupertino, CA.
I worked with many realtors and Richard is absolutely the best! I was so delighted to have the opportunity to work with him to purchase my first home, as well as my first investment property 1 year later. Richard is very knowledgeable and has excellent people skills. He keeps clients' best interest in mind, and tries his best to negotiate with the seller on fair terms. Buying a home with Richard turned out to be not stressful at all. I enjoyed the process, and I learned a lot from him, who has 30+ years of experience in real estate, and who is generous to share his invaluable knowledge and puts it to best work for his clients. Richard also does purchase loans and refinance loans for me many times. He executes smoothly and never misses a beat. The rates I got are always very competitive. He has multiple loan agents working for him and they provide timely and valuable service. I shall definitely work with Richard again when I'm ready for the next buy.

Helped me rent a home.
Richard Ho took my money (a check he promised to hold should I find another rental that was a better fit for my needs). He claimed that he would not cash the application fee check unless I verbally authorized him to do so. He cashed it without my consent and then when I contacted him and confronted him about it he pretended like it was an error "oh someone in my office must have cashed it" Despite numerous attempts to contact him to receive a refund it never happened. Do not do business with this shady character.
