Siu first helped me purchase my first condo in Boston in the summer of 2012. Since then, he has helped me with the purchase of three other units within the area. He clearly understands the Boston real estate market very well. Throughout the process, he has been extremely proactive, thoughtful and patient. <br/><br/>For my three rental units, Siu helped me find tenants within a very short period of time, even in the middle of the winter when the rental market is generally slower. He also assisted the tenants with the move-in process. He essentially took full responsibility of the move-in process and provided me with updates. He is always proactive and resolves potential issues before they turn into problems. I can’t remember a time where he communicates an issue to me without a proposed solution. With the help of an agent like Siu, I haven’t had to spend nearly as much effort on these rental units as I anticipated. <br/><br/>Last summer, in particular, my tenants for one of the unit were moving in but they were unsatisfied with the apartment condition. As I was out of country when it happened, Siu took full control of the situation and helped me find cleaners/painters to get the apartment up to par. A few weeks later when I returned to Boston, the tenants told me that they were very appreciative of the help of Siu, who personally helped the tenants clean the apartment (before an appointment with the cleaners could be made) so that the tenants could unpack their boxes. With his help, what would have been a rocky tenant-landlord relationship turned into a very positive relationship.<br/><br/>It has been great working with Siu. I highly recommend him to anyone who’s looking to rent, buy or sell.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2015 in Beacon Hill, Boston, MA.

Initially I was hesitant to diversify funds and expand into the real estate investing realm. This was due mainly to the potential frustrations of having to deal with high pressure sales from real estate agents, and negotiating deals when I was unable to physically be present for the transactions, as I am an out-of-state investor. I am so fortunate to have found Siu. Not only is he incredibly attentive and responsive, he is honest. I never felt pressured to sign, in fact there were times he suggested that we move in a different direction when he felt that the deals were not in my favor. He presented logical reasonings as to why a property would either be a good or bad investment. We eventually found a fantastic property that needed a bit of remodeling. Siu was able to connect me not only with a quick and diligent contractor, but he also recommended the best property manager that has alleviated all of my worries regarding the property. He was able to find a tenant within 2 weeks of the completion of condo's renovations which was almost unbelievable since Boston has been enduring a slew of blizzards. Thank you Siu, for your expertise and overwhelming patience you have made this transaction seamless and rewarding!

Found a tenant for a home in South Boston, Boston, MA 02118.

After accepting a job offer located in the other side of the country, I had less than 30 days to vacate my first home. I reached out to Siu for help, requesting that he not only assist in finding a tenant, but also find someone to manage the property. In the blistering cold of January, I didn't have high expectations that there would be demand for a unit, and was expecting a 20-30% discount from fair rental value after a few months of vacancy. Siu, however, delivered. Not only was he able to lock in a long term lease with a tenant for near fair value, he did so in just about a month. Siu structured the lease strategically in favorable terms, performed full checks on the tenant's references, even potential co-signers. Most important of all, he was very helpful and responsive in providing any necessary documentation for my mortgage broker in California (I was trying to buy another home). Although just a simple rental transaction, thanks to his attentiveness, he has my trust and business for life. I only hope a reader of this review will become inclined to give him a call, as I highly recommend him in all aspects.

Helped me rent a home.

Siu is simply the best real estate agent anyone can have. He has assisted me in finding apartments rentals since 2010 and I can only say that I completely recommend his expertise and his services to anyone moving to Boston (like I did) or just trying to relocate to a different part of the city. He's very respectful and has always given 110% whenever I was on the lookout for a new apartment or just having difficulty understanding various details of the renting process. On top of that he's always been completely honest about all aspects of rentals and has never tried to smooth talk or sugarcoat properties that were less than what I was looking for. In addition, I would like to say that not only Siu but also his colleagues have been completely professional and helpful. I'm really pleased with my apartment now :) and it's all thanks to Siu.

Helped me rent a home.

Genuinely, the best real estate agent I've met. He is honest, timely, professional, accountable, helpful, and NICE on top of that. I never write reviews, and I really never do- but I will trust Siu Fu Lau with my apartment business any day! I've dealt with A LOT of realtors &landlords over the past few years, and I am way too familiar with the "Bad Vibe" feeling you get when you're dealing with a swindler or a smooth talker who will show you absolute CRAP and call it gold. With Siu, what you request is what you will see- I can count on him to show me what I want to see for my pice range. Also, he is a man who will keep his deals- I've worked with him as a resident trying to put my place on the market- he has never knocked on my door without notice and asked me to "just show the place real quick." he is super pleasant to work with. I am very happy to have met Siu and the ret of his team- Thank you for hooking me up with an apartment to call my home:)

Showed home in 2012 in Boston, MA.

Siu was very helpful in locating properties and opportunities in the Greater Boston area. He was also very flexible with his schedule and was able to set up showing times at very convenient hours. He doesn't force you into a sale, and is willing to take the time to help you find exactly what you are looking for as he believes in quality over quantity. I ended up not buy a home in Boston area though, as my job forced me to relocate, but I would definitely recommend him to my friends who are looking.
