Bought a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $625K in Overlake, Bellevue, WA.
We have been working with Shelly for about 6 months to get my dream home eventually which is the best of all the deals we had some interests in. During these months, Shelly had always been patient and consistent in the high quality of services supporting us to get the best deal. She has the best knowledge of real estate buy/sell processes and could get to the key point straight. This is very helpful when you run in a multi-bidding offers scenario and let you make the best decision in winning the deal.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Downtown, Bellevue, WA.
As a first time home buyer, Shelly helped us a lot in finding a home for us in this though market. She responded to our phone and emails very quickly. She has good senses around the house and can points out the good and bad things on houses that we were looking at. I am really glad I have Shelly as my realtor as she is very professional, knowledgeable, hard working, and serve the client's best interest. I would highly recommend Shelly.

The best agent you can find in Greater Seattle area. My family was new to WA, then we contacted Shelly for buying a house because her high evaluation online, and thanks for Shelly's help.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Redmond, WA.
Shelly Hu and her team (esp. Mark) were excellent to work with. They were willing to jump in at a moments notice to help us. Even willing to show us an excellent Comp right before we signed papers on the house we are purchasing. They were more than happy to be both patient with us, and provide us with excellent knowledge about the many possibilities we considered from building, remodeling to a brand new home!
The best agent you can find in Greater Seattle area. We spent about half a year hunting for a house, and thanks for Shelly's help, we finally got our dream house recently. In these six months, Shelly and her team were always so patient and nice to help us with their professional skills and advise. She guided us to find the very best house meeting our needs for a little family. This year is really a hot one for real estate market. Shelly had been taking us visiting the houses we're interested in in almost every weekend of the last six months, and she's consistently patient. After having visited more than 30 houses, we finally got an ideal house on 11th offer we've put during the last 6 months. Based on our experience, we highly recommend Shelly and her team!
As first time home buyers, Shelly helped us understand the process of home buying and guided us through every aspect of it really well.
She was very responsive whenever we had any questions and was willing to help out at any time of the day if needed. Also, her knowledge base was so vast that she could even answer some of our questions on construction materials as stuff.
It's a very pleasant experience to work with Shelly and her team. Since I was not able to be physically present, I am afraid I could not make it at all without Shelly's and her team's responsive and professional services. I would definitely recommend Shelly's team to anybody who wants to purchase a property around the Seattle/Bellevue areas.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Kingsgate, Kirkland, WA.
This is my 3rd real estate transactions with Shelly. It is for obvious reasons that I keep coming back to her in purchasing and selling my homes. Shelly is very dedicated and committed to her work and her clients. She is transparent in how she conduct her work, and she'll also give you her honest opinions of the homes, whether you like it or not (which usually is to your own benefit).
During our recent house hunting, I felt like Shelly was guiding me all the way through, making sure that I would find THE house that would meet my family's needs. Starting with the logistics of the house, the school district, the public transportation line, and many more. And she did come through and we are so glad that we have established a relationship with a great real estate professional like Shelly. I would highly recommend Shelly and her team in helping you meet your real estate needs.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Meydenbauer, Bellevue, WA.
Shelly was our buyer’s agent. Impressed by her blogs and people’s recommendations, we contacted her in early summer and started our broker-buyer relationship. We visited Bellevue last week. As expected, she and her team were knowledgeable and professional. They did a fantastic job to help us in every possible way as a buyer’s agent. However, what really impressed us most was Shelly’s unique ability and skills to work with clients, especially in the stage of making offers and negotiation.
Instead of being an agent or representative, she played a team leader. We worked as a team. With the amazing knowledge and experience of the Bellevue real estate market, she led us go over every single detail about the unit, our strength and weakness, and pros and cons of different offer making strategies. After long discussion and debate, she brought the team (Shelly, me and my wife) into consensus. The team came up with a plan which everyone considered the best possible bidding plan. We were pleased to see, after we submitted our offer, we kept our lead position among multiple bidders throughout the whole process.
Shelly has a deep understanding of the real estate negotiation practice. After we submitted our offer, she kept close contact with the seller’s broker, calling for updates from time to time. Trying to stay as the top bidder, she negotiated hard with the seller. She persuaded us to make concessions to several less important areas but was firm on the offer price. In the final hour of the cut off day, the seller asked if we could increase our offer. Firmly Shelly said no. We were very nervous and proposed to meet the seller’s demand. Shelly told us she was confident that we would win. She believed this was the best price they could get for the condo on the Bellevue market. And she was right.
We signed the P&S the following day. We are thrilled to have our future new home in beautiful Bellevue Downtown. Thank you, Shelly.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $800K in Somerset, Bellevue, WA.
Shelly helped us buy a house in the most sought after Somerset area in Bellevue, WA. Of course we are very happy. She is good at understanding customer needs, financial situations, and the local market. She would then formulate a good strategy to buy the house we want in the hot area of this hot market. She is also willing to spend the extra effort to try un-conventional means such as pre-sale and un-listed opportunities. The house we bought was through a private sale so we avoided entering multiple-bid situations. She will be my top choice of real estate agent from now on.
