Since starting my real estate career in 1989 with Century 21, back in the days of the "gold jacket", I have witnessed several real estate cycles. Today's market, more than ever, demands a new set of tools. I enjoy the challenge of embracing new technology which makes me a better agent for my clients but some things never change and putting their needs first remains the same.

My clients make me grateful for what I do. With each closed transaction I am encouraged to improve my skills and service. Sellers and buyers alike constantly remind me that they simply want a qualified "partner" who will navigate them through the complexities of real estate and mortgages. While it can be a very emotional process for them they are comforted knowing that someone is at the driver's wheel.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $825K in Newark, CA.

Our family spent 4 month with Steve looking for our first house. He is very knowlegable and always had answers to all of our questions in details. Besides that he is highly intelligent and nice person with very good sence of humor. We changed our priorities and search criterias thousand times and he always stayed calm, polite, patient and positive. He worked overtime and on weekends. And at last when we've found the house, Steve made everything that depended on him to make all transactions pass quickly and smoothly. When we became happy owners of our house, we found ourselves in a bunch of questions what to do with all of this. Steve still was with us and helped to make decisions. We will definitely recommend him to all of our friends and relatives as a highly professional real estate agent.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Santa Teresa, San Jose, CA.

As a first time buyer, I definitely needed someone who could guide us for the property we were looking into. This is where Steve came in. Today after buying the house, I cannot believe my stroke of luck coming across him. He really has been helpful, from the stage one. He did guide us stating all the pros and cons, and took time for us to understand why one property can be better than other. But in no way he rushed us to make any decisions unless we were absolutely sure.

He sure knows what the seller or the seller agent would want when selling the property. One of the criteria for the seller was quick closing which Steve properly identified. with the combination of a correct offer price and the quick closing the seller agreed on our offer.

He does have a lot of ideas about home improvement too. I am sure I will be acting on quite a few suggestion as soon as I am settled. He still helps me with any questions about remodeling/home improvement.

Apart from buying and selling of houses, he sure does know a lot of people who can fix various stuff at house. I have utilized few contacts that he did provide me and I am happy with the work they have done.

I will highly recommend Steve If you are buying a house. And I am pretty much sure he would to great while selling a house. As a fact, he did know what the selling side thought.

Sold a home in 2014.

After interviewing 3 agents, we decided to hire Steve Chin as our listing agent and was glad we made the decision. Steve is a great RE agent, someone you want to be on your side in a real estate transaction. He helped us sold our house within 3 weeks by recommending exactly what need to be fixed or updated in the property to attract buyers. He also recommended realistic listed price to bring in potential buyers. Once the offer was accepted, he followed up with the buyer's agent to negotiate fair and equitable deal for both parties. As the seller's agent, Steve also tracked all documents signing to make sure no surprises before closing. We were able to sell our house at a good price in the fastest amount of time. I would recommend strongly Steve Chin as your real estate agent in the San Jose area.  More Less
