David and Yasuko Chu are like angels sent from real estate heaven! Without them, I wouldn't be so happy about where I live. Before I start telling you about my home-searching journey, I want to tell you that I am still very happy about my purchase. I am constantly being told that this house was a very good and smart buy. Actually, the only smart decision I made in this process was trusting David and Yasuko. I had made the decision to buy property two years ago (yes, it was a long journey, but well worth it!) and knew nothing about real estate. I reached out to David and the teaching and learning began. He started to teach me about what to look for at the property, what locations are good, what priorities I should place in certain characteristics of the house, and most important, what is worth my money. He even looked ahead for me and told me what would happen if i decide to sell a few years from now. With all the experience he had, I knew I could trust him. As I mentioned, it was a long process. There was a point where I thought he had forgotten about me, but that was definitely not the case. There just simply wasn't anything in the market within my budget for a while. But when the market picked back up, David and Yasuko worked really hard to show me properties that were always worth seeing. David was with me the entire time and gave me advice on each property - whether the roofing would likely leak during rainy seasons, or the floor was uneven, etc. These are things that I would have never thought about, but really need to think about. Yasuko also gave me her point of view on a lot of the properties as well as a lot of comic relief :). She's the sweetest and funniest lady! They were looking at each property as if they were deciding to buy it for themselves or not. It was great! They went above and beyond the responsibilities of a real estate agent. They would help me schedule appointments with inspectors, recommend trustworthy contractors, along with many, many other things that they didn't need to do. There was also a point where I started to get desperate and was about to make a decision on a property that I knew I would potentially regret. I wanted to buy a property that was not worth my money because I didn't want to wait any longer. At that point, David laid out all the facts, the pros and the cons and basically led me back to the right path. Now that I have this property, I knew it was the right decision to listen to David. This review is long overdue as it has already been almost 5 months since I moved in. But because it's been so long, I am very happy to say that I am still very happy about this purchase. They are such smart and genuine people. They have made my first home purchase the smoothest it can ever be. I can go on and on, but it's safe to say that I would recommend (and already has recommended) them to anyone. Thank you so very much, David and Yasuko!

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Monterey Park, CA.

After my aunt died, as trustee of her estate, I had to sell her townhouse in Monterey Park. The townhouse was generally in good shape, but out-of-style and needed some improvements. I interviewed three real estate agents, and by far the best was David Chu with his wife, Yasuko. They made reasonable common-sense suggestions to dress up the property, without going overboard by making improvements that would be changed by the buyer. They did a great job staging the property, and taking photographs for the web. It appeared the townhouse was going to be an easy sale, but a couple buyers backed out for questionable reasons. David kept on working, and regularly kept me in the loop regarding the sale status. Even with those delays, the property closed in about three months. I have absolutely no complaints with how David handled the sale, and am very pleased with the outcome. There is no question that I would use David and Yasuko again, and I give them my highest recommendation!

Sold a home in 2015 in South San Gabriel, Rosemead, CA 91770.

Yasuko was instrumental in the sale of my mother's home in San Gabriel. My mother is 80 years old and need to work with someone she can trust. Yasuko was very professional & went the extra mile in assisting my mother in updating her information to her new home. I highly recommend Yasuko Chu

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Monterey Park, CA.

We recently purchased our first house with the help and expertise of both David and Yasuko Chu. In the beginning of our search, he gave us advise and told us what to look for, what to be wary of and what to take in consideration when buying a house. When we finally decided on a house, they provided such professional and personalized service for us even though they were out of the country. He worked throughout the night making sure we had everything in order to present our best offer to the seller. We could not be happier in our choice of Realtors and highly recommend them.

Sold a home in 2015.

David and Yasuko helped my in-laws who are in their eighties sell their home in Monterey Park. They lived in this house for about forty years and it needed a ton of work, but David was so very helpful introducing us to various contractors who cleaned up their home to get it ready for sale. We felt they understood the market and the type of potential buyers so we only did work that was necessary. There was no pressure to use his contacts and they were all reasonable and did the job right. We don't live in the area so David's help in fixing up the house saved us so much headache and trouble. David and Yasuko really made a difficult transition very smooth and efficient...not to mention quick as well.

In about two weeks, we got three offers and the house closed escrow within two months of putting it on the market. My eighty-something in-laws never sold their home before but they were also very impressed with how the entire process went so smoothly. David and Yasuko are very professional, extremely efficient, detail-oriented and they were always quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. We really felt we were in good hands from beginning to end and we would not hesitate for a moment to recommend them. We felt they went the extra mile for us and we are so grateful to them.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Monterey Park, CA.

My husband and I have purchased and/or sold six properties in the last 15 years and David is without question the most ethical and professional real estate agent we have worked with. Actually, I do not describe David as a real estate agent, but rather a real estate professional, and frankly, we had never worked with anyone of David's caliber. We only wish we would have met David and Yasuko 15 years ago. In the summer of 2014, we were looking to purchase a property in Monterey Park and I saw a listing online and called the listing agent, David Chu on his cellphone. He answered his phone and that night he was at our home meeting with us. From the moment we met David and Yasuko, we knew we were working with experienced, honest, and ethical real estate professionals. They are also wonderful people - warm and caring and you immediately know that they have your best interests at heart. While that initial property ended up not being the right property for us, David got to work and quickly found us a property that in the end was the property for us. From our first meeting with David, until our property closed escrow in less than 30 days, David was responsive, transparent, and very efficient. Buying and selling real estate is typically a very stressful activity - or at least that had been our experience time and time again. And yet David and Yasuko made the process unbelievably smooth and easy. During this time, my co-worker was having a very stressful time trying to sell her home which had been on the market for more than six months. I told her she should call David and she did. David closed escrow on my co-workers home in no time. We thank our lucky stars that we met David and Yasuko, and would recommend them to anyone who is either selling or wanting to buy a property. Thank you David and Yasuko.

Sold a home in 2015 in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, CA 90033.

3/14/2015 – T. & C. Sold a 5-unit apartment property in Los Angeles in 2015.

After owning the apartment property for over five decades, it was time to sell because of advancing age. A friend recommended David and Yasuko Chu as we did not know anyone in the real estate business. David recommended several vendors and obtained estimates for doing the necessary work to prepare the property for selling. He handled the many tedious and detailed tasks with efficiency, honesty and professionalism, and patiently guided us through the selling process. When the property was ready, it was put on the market. David quickly obtained several offers to purchase and explained the pros and cons of each offer to us. The property was sold quickly without difficulty. We highly recommend David and Yasuko Chu, without hesitation or reservation.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $625K in Monterey Park, CA.

I highly recommend David, without hesitation. He was very proactive throughout the process, anticipating everything that might prevent the property from quickly selling at the right price and in a timely manner. He advised us of what we might do to get the house ready for sale and was willing to meet the contractors if we weren't available. He clearly had experience and was on top of all aspects from getting the property ready, negotiating, to making sure the buyer had preliminary loan approval prior to submitting their offer. He was fair, calm, professional and friendly at all times and was able to close in 30 days.
