Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in East San Jose, San Jose, CA.
We had trouble getting homes in San Jose. We were overwhelmed with multiple bidding and unable to count on a professional to serve our interests. Sam tried to find homes of our interest before they came on the market. It took a couple of tries and in each case he supported the suggested price with hard data. After we got into contract he help to personally inspect the property and confirm or dispute inspection results. We saved money on non-issues.
There were still several snags that took place during and after escrow. Sam was able to resolve them timely. All in all, he is a very experienced realtor who knows the neighborhood. We will not hesitate to recommend him for selling or purchase.
