My husband and I would like to commend the outstanding representation we had in selling our small home in the East Los Angeles area. David and Yasuko Chu were professional from the moment we started our transaction until the very end of the process. David was always available to answer our questions, regardless of the time of day we called. When the buyer delayed the process, David was always on hand to contact the buyer's real estate agent, appraiser, or lender to make sure we kept the process moving. This is the second sale David has assisted us with and we would recommend him to family and friends. He is truly a professional agent and cares about his clients.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Rosemead, CA.

I cannot give a higher recommendation for the services of David and Yasuko Chu for the recent sale of our home. Their vast experience, professionalism and kind and caring personalities simply made the process pleasant and turn-key. Buying and selling a home is not something we do often, so relying on true professionals gave us the trust and confidence we needed without adding unnecessary burden or worry. At every step of the way they were there to answer our questions, soothe over any concerns we had and simply be the voice of reason. David said early on that it was their job to take care of everything and make the process as seamless and worry-free as possible. They more than exceeded our expectations. David and Yasuko represent a level of service that is clearly lacking in so many industries these days and is simply delightful and refreshing to experience. This is my first Zillow review and I couldn't be happier to write this!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Monterey Park, CA.

David Chu came highly recommended and made us very pleased we had chosen him as our realtor. He's extremely knowledgeable and made everything as easy and stress-less for us as possible. Our home sold quickly, for top dollar, and David handled everything. He was always accessible and gracious. We felt very comfortable having him represent us and he exceeded our expectations. I have already contacted him regarding a second property. I can highly recommend David and Yasuko Chu.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Monterey Park, CA.

If you don't want to read our long summary (David was an amazing agent so a detailed review is the least we can do), here is the short version:

-Accommodating and Understanding: His goal is to find a home that fits you. We changed our minds and budgets multiple times, but we never any feeling of frustration from him; rather he just asked more questions to make sure he found the perfect place

-Accessible and Invested: He is always a phone call away, even after Escrow closed when most real estate agents would say their goodbyes, he was there to resolve any further issues we had and provide advice as well.

-Closer: With his real estate experience, he has the ability to close the deal at the right price even in this seller's market. With his experience, he knows what things should be covered but the seller and does not hesitate to make it happen. We saved money because of his negotiating skills.

******************************************************************************************** Now for the super long version:

If you want a real estate agent who knows the market, looks out for your interests, and whose goal is to get you the home you want at your price then David Chu is who should represent you.

We wanted to stay in the San Gabriel Valley close to family, but the current housing market caused us to get outbid by all cash offers even though we ourselves would make offers 40k over the listing price. Despite our limitations, David was patient with us making sure we didn't spread ourselves too thin, place an offer we couldn't afford, or place an offer way above what the house was actually worth.

For example, we wanted to place an offer on a condo in Monterey Park about 30k more than the listing price because in the past, even 30-40k over wasn't enough for us to gain the house. David was against it, he knew how much recent homes sold for in the area and knew we didn't need to go that high. So we put in a lower offer and got the won the sale! However, we decided not to buy the house because we realized during escrow we really wanted a single family home, not a condo. At this point, it was about 8 months into our housing journey and we thought David would leave us for not taking this condo, but all he said was, "This is a big step, you need to make sure this is the right home for you. Don't take it just because your offer was accepted". Time and time again throughout the process, David always asked us if we were sure, especially in regards to our budget. He never tried to push us to put a larger offer just to make the sale. We had friends who were also looking for houses during that time and their agents (despite all the flaws/problems) would tell them it is ok, just buy it...it can be fixed.

Additionally, he taught us a great deal about things we would have never thought of as first time home buyers; for example, where to look for cracks in the walls, making sure there were no flat roofs that would be at high risk for water damage, and much more. We never knew/thought about these things and we learned it all from David; for this reason he exceeded our expectations.

Over a year later, we have our first home. Even with this home which requires some work, David asked us to make sure we could afford the home itself and all the costs of renovation. He even spent a whole night with us going over the home inspection so we could see all that would need to be done and went back to the seller to have them cover some of the costs of repairs.

We cannot thank David enough. He is our real estate agent for all our future buys/sales and have not hesitated to refer all our friends and family to him. Thank you again David for all that you're done for us and for helping us find our home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Monterey Park, CA.

We chose David and Yasuko based on the positive reviews online, and we were not disappointed! Not only are they professional and knowledgeable, but they are also very honest and easy to work with. David knew just how much work was needed to prepare the house for sale, and he made arrangements for repairs to be done at reasonable prices. David’s advice in this regard was “spot on” and made our decisions easy. Because of him, our house sold for over the listing price!!!

David was available every step of the process and kept us informed during the entire escrow period. David and Yasuko also did a great job marketing the property, preparing a professional flyer with great photos and holding several open houses. We couldn’t be more please with the job they did!

WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND DAVID AND YASUKO TO ANYONE SELLING A HOUSE. THEY ARE EXPERIENCED AND RELIABLE AND WILL REPRESENT YOU WELL!

Sold a home in 2014 in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, CA 90063.

My family and I are extremely satisfied with the expert service that was provided to us during the sale of our house by David and Yasuko Chu. Throughout the entire process, they were professional, courteous, and attentive to every detail. We were referred to them by other satisfied clients and couldn't be happier with how things turned out.

The house that was sold was built in 1908 and belonged to my mother-in-law. Since she was no longer able to care for herself, the first step was finding a property suitable for her needs and moving her there. David was instrumental in finding the right property and negotiating the lease for us. The next step involved preparing the old house for sale. It is hard to even list the various cosmetic repairs, patching, painting, and updating that needed to be done. David helped to prioritize and advise us as to what work was mandatory and what work would provide the best curb appeal for selling purposes. In addition to advising us as to what work should be done, he also recommended and arranged for various contractors to provide estimates on the cost.

The house had been owned by my wife's family for four generations and had always been carpeted. David recommended that the carpet be removed and the hardwood floors be refinished. The results were dramatic and made a huge difference in the overall appeal of the property. He also recommended painters and other professional workmen who provided their services at a reasonable cost and in a prompt fashion. The results were truly amazing -- a tired old property was updated and changed into a beautiful charmer! Before selling, the property drew multiple offers.

In addition to being the consummate professional, the thing that I liked best about David was the personal interest he took in me and my family. He was attentive to all our needs and patiently answered every question we had for him. I would use him again, in a heartbeat, and highly recommend him if you are in the market to buy or sell a house.

David & Yasuko Chu's realtor services are the best real estate agent services we have ever met! My husband and I have been doing house hunting for over a year, and we had tried several real restate agents until we met David and Yasuko. We just purchased our first property with David & Yasuko Chu's realtor services with great satisfaction. We know how tough could be for the first-time buyer, but David and Yasuko made our “American Dream” come true!

The way that David and Yasuko represented us and guided us through the purchasing process is very professional, experienced, responsible and most importantly, honest! They are the trustworthiest realtors in this industry. David was on time for each appointment that we had. He always prepared documents ahead of time, explained in detail what was on the document and made us feel comfortable for what we signed. He also had great negotiation skills while negotiating with the seller. He has a broad knowledge base in real estate industry and related fields that makes him always exceed your expectations by providing advises like a friend. Yasuko was great attention to detail. She always cared about customer’s needs and did her best to provide satisfied solutions by thinking on her customer’s side. David and Yasoku are very delicate to their job. We are great impressed by their quality service. They are an admirable professional couple!

We have nothing to complain about David & Yasuko Chu's realtor services. They are simply the BEST! We HIGH RECOMMEND David & Yasuko Chu's realtor services TO EVERYONE!!! You will get more than you expect ;-)

Bought a Single Family home in 1991 in Diamond Bar, CA.

David and Yasuko helped us with our first home purchase in 1991. Since we were first-time buyers, we had many questions and looked at many homes for sale. David patiently answered our questions and showed us many properties. Using his expertise, he helped us to think outside of the box and located the home that we eventually purchased. He assisted us by making sure that the transaction went smoothly and even follows up with us throughout the years. We feel we were so lucky to have found them and have recommended many family and friends to them. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $650K in Monterey Park, CA.

We couldn't have been happier with any other realtor than David & Yasuko Chu. From Day 1 when we met with them, they were attentive and professional. They gave us great input as to how to prepare our house for the market. Throughout the entire process of selling our house, they were always available and supportive to any questions we had. We were appreciative of their business knowledge, professionalism and genuine kindness. We believe our house sold quickly due to having David & Yasuko as our realtors.
