Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $750K in Downtown, San Jose, CA.
Ann Thai has helped us navigate a competitive seller’s market to be able to purchase our home. She is very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and thorough. The service is very high touch and personalized. She responds fast and complete to any requests. Ann has a wide network of professionals from contractors to insurance agents that can help close the transaction fast after winning the bid.
Ann has plenty of experience with the negotiation process and is able to provide very well received, competitive offers.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Milpitas, CA.
Ann was very helpful in the entire process of purchasing our new home. She sent us daily market updates on the areas we were interested in. During the negotiation process she was able to get us the price we wanted plus incentives and credits as well. She is very knowledgable, responsive and a pleasure to work with. Thank you Ann!
• Back in 2011 we were looking for a house to buy. Words cannot describe how lucky we were to meet to work with Ann Thai. Within one meeting with her, we were guided with such care and professionalism. We bought a home from her within our price range and all of the amenities that we wanted. She kept us informed, educated us on the process, and continues to follow up with us. I can't thank her enough.
• Since that transaction, Ann Thai has remained in close contact, updates on the market and calls periodically to check in. Last week, we bought a second home from her again.
• We will be working with Ann Thai again and again. If you are looking for a hands on, knowledgeable, trust and kind Realtor who will make you feel secure throughout the stressful transaction process, Ann Thai is your woman. Ann Thai is a phenomenal agent, and one that I highly recommend to everyone.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $200K in East San Jose, San Jose, CA.
Our case was very difficult to deal with and she was able to do it without costing us a cent. Our condominium was on the verge of foreclosing but she was able to negotiate with HOA and two lenders to do a short sale. We also owed property taxes and HOA fees but Ann was able to come to an agreement with the lenders to pay the past dues instead. It was a long process with some bumps in the road, but she was able to resolve the issue smoothly. She was very driven to get this difficult short sale done. She is very knowledgeable, quick-witted, honest and professional. We highly recommend her as realtor.
I signed a half year exclusive contact with Ann.
Basically she is a responsible person. Every time she replied to my information timely.
She also has lots of experience in real estate bargain, and finally help me buy a house with a reasonable price. Thank you Ann!

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Evergreen, San Jose, CA.
Many people say it’s difficult to buy a house in this time. However, we only spent 1.5 months to buy a house.
We bought a house in Evergreen area, San Jose in Oct 2012. We are first time home buyer, so we want to meet a good agent who can helps us to buy a house. Therefore, we searched on Zillow.com and saw Ann Thai who has had many high recommend from her customers.
Since we have co-ordinate with Ann, we didn’t spend a lot of time to look for houses. Every day, she sent to us one link of houses in regular sale and one link of house in short sale. These links were updated every day with complete information. They were automatic, so we didn’t miss any houses in price we wanted. With these links, we could visit these houses by ourselves in case these houses were open house or we called Ann to make appointment to visit the houses in list.
In addition, Ann is very enthusiastic in her job. We could call or email her any time, day or night, weekday or weekend, she always called back to answer our questions or help us to solve our problems immediately.
Furthermore, Ann has rich knowledge and experience in real estate and gave us her advice about the house, area, price etc. Therefore, we could buy a house very quickly. Also, Ann could deal with seller’s agent to protect her customer when we met some problems in loan. Ann and the loan officer are professional persons. They solve problems very quickly. They are too nice and kind persons. Ann is the best realtor and we are very lucky to meet Ann and her team. We highly recommend Ann to be your real estate agent.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $525K in Northgate, Fremont, CA.
I am a first time home buyer. I failed many times in purchasing house before I knew Ann Thai. I was very terrible disappointment.
Later , My friend recommended Ann to me so that I found her ,and Desired to help me to purchase house. At this time, I was very luck. With the help of Ann, I successfully bought a single family house located at Fremont in July ,2012.
Hereby I would like to tell the home buyers that you must have the best agent if you want to win and flatten your opponent. Ann is the best realtor who has rich knowledge and experience of real estate , the loan process , and give you quick response according to your request. She really does a great job , and is too kind. It is very nice and enjoyable to work with a very nice person.
So I highly recommend Ann Thai to be your real estate agent.
Ann recently helped me buy my first home in Willow Glen, San Jose. She was a Godsend - hands down the best real estate agent I have worked with or heard about. She is way on top of the game in terms of knowledge and achieving results - whatever your situation. She'll get you what you want and then negotiate an offer that is acceptable to both buyer and seller. Getting your offer accepted can sometimes be taken for granted, but it is often the make or break step.
After getting your offer accepted, then sit back and watch Ann go to bat for you in terms of getting you all kinds of desirable extras. One key thing - she also knew an unaffiliated BOA loan agent, that frankly made this whole thing work - and I had talked to many loan agents before then. Working with Ann was just refreshing, making the whole experience of buying a house the joy that such a massive and potentially stressful financial step should be. I wish I had better words to describe my experience - it was excellent A+++...
Not only should anyone work with Ann, but I will vouch that you do yourself a disservice not to. God bless you Ann.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in San Jose, CA.
Being a FHA buyer I was very lucky to have Ann as my buyer agent. She is very knowledgeable in real-estate selling and buying. With her help we finally got a house that we like. Not only Ann was able to get the seller to accept our offer, we are able to get it without offering anything more than the listing price. Throughout the loan process she was able to keep the seller to be patient until the loan is closed. I would recommend Ann to my friends and family to use her when it's time for them to buy to sell a house. I just like to say thank you Ann for guiding us through this purchase and making it possible.
Did not respond to my inquiry in Warm Springs, Sunol, CA 94539.
I attempted to contact Ann Thai through email from the Zillow site, an email message from her site, and voicemail (twice). I never heard from her. I can't say anything about her local knowledge, process expertise, or negotiation skills.
