We are so glad we found Sonia as our agent for our home search. She was recommended to us by a dear friend, and we are so thankful for all her hard work, professionalism and integrity. Sonia was patient and knowledgeable in every aspect of her job. she was a joy to work with. She completely understood what we were looking for and gave us every single detail of the house we visited. She went through the inspection report of every house we liked and made us understand if there are any major concerns. Genuinely wonderful person! She was always available and planned so well to get appointments to see open houses for us. She was attentive to detail, and proactively maintained communication. She became a really good friend to us and to our 2 year old in this short span of time and our daughter loves her, calls her as her aunt :) She made us feel like family, never just a client.We couldn't have done it without her as she instantly had our trust. Thank you so much Sonia for getting us this beautiful home:)

Sonia is a great realtor, a total pro. Will gladly recommend her to others, and would use her services again if ever buying or selling.

Real estate agents do not have a very good reputation! owing to the bad reviews and experiences shared by near and dear ones.
But you come across people who change your perception, Sonia was one of them!
Being first time house buyers we had lot of concerns and questions. Sonia made sure she talked through and addressed all of them. We never imagined getting our home with the first offer we placed, but Sonia made it happen. This goes to say a lot about her dedication to clients and thorough research she puts in. And we continue to get her time and support even post deal closure, which is an absolute delight.
I highly recommend her and hope she continues with the awesome work which she is already doing!

We worked with Sonia for buying our first house in the Bay Area. She is a very hard working and sincere person, with a lot of patience. We saw many houses with Sonia before getting one. She gauged our requirements soon after we saw a few houses with her, and narrowed the list of houses we used to go see every week afterwards, at least once, for several months. Sonia made herself available whenever we needed her for showing any house we wanted to have a look. She is a very friendly person -- my wife and I are now good friends of her.

Sonia also helped us by providing contacts of several reasonable people while moving into the house, e.g., fumigation company, a handy guy, cleaning staff, etc. We enjoyed working with Sonia. We have no reservations in giving her a five star. We strongly recommend her for any serious buyer.

Sonia was patient to learn our needs and aspiration and then diligently assisted us in the search. When other buyers are is bidding similar price and terms, we greatly benefited from Sonia's effort to make our offer stand out. She did this by hand-delivering our offer and building the rapport and trust with the listing agent and seller.

Sonia is very experienced in the real estate business and you get to see that once you meet. Before purchasing the property and before meeting Sonia, we tried working with few other realtors and we did not find ourselves comfortable. Sonia is very organized, punctual but very time flexible (we really needed time flexibility due to baby with us) and not pushy for anything. These skill sets really worked in our favor. She helped us to make sure that our budget for this purchase is correct. In this process, Sonia worked with us even around midnight time and even around 5 AM while writing the offers. She is very upfront to state good and bad things about the property. Her estimates about repair are also quite close to the real numbers. The listings that she sent and what we were looking for had a good overlap throughout the process. Most important thing that ads value is she made sure we are not overpaying for the property to win the bid. Overall, I highly recommend Sonia since she was very professional with us.

Sonia literally changed our lives. We had such an unexpected and great experience with her support and guidance and are still surprised at how fast, efficient and pleasant the whole experience was.

This is our first home and we were very intimidated and crossed paths with Sonia at an Open House when we were trying to do it on our own and we approached by many Realtors looking to help us. She really stood out in her advice and approach that put us at ease and feel comfortable to work with her.

At each step she took a lot of care and time to make sure she understood what our needs were and how to find the best and help educate us on the pros and cons of each house and not let us feel desperate or overpay. It extended to her support and relationships with lenders and other realtors and was a whole team of trustworthy and effective resources.

She continued to offer support and care past the sale and will absolutely keep in touch and go to her for advice work if ever needed in the future.

Sonia has been a true lifesaver. We were first time home buyers and she took us under her wings and really broke down what to expect. She helped us to understand how the market works and how we can make our budget yet still meet our needs. I loved that she helped us determine our budget with a spreadsheet containing everything from phone bill to hair care expenses!
Sonia was very attentive to what we were asking for in our first home. She made us feel comfortable and let us know if something was out of reach. She truly had our best intentions at heart while helping us.
I would highly recommend Sonia to anyone searching for a home. She is incredible!

Dear Prospective Homeowners,
It is our immense pleasure to recommend Sonia Vu as a real estate agent for your search of an ideal home. We had a limited time in our search of a nice home in Bay area, as we were out of state and moving to Bay area.
Sonia had an initial meeting with us and took care of our tight filters diligently. She is highly talented technologically and Quickly found homes to look for the weekend we were in the Bay area. She found v close fit homes for our needs and we did a weekend shopping for a home we loved! A master of contract negotiations, Sonia came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well.
Sonia is highly energetic and highly attentive to details of our needs as if we were her only customers. She was v prompt in returning our calls and emails within a few mins. She made us feel, we are important. She is highly personable with an engaging personality.
We are pleased to recommend Sonia Vu to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. She is one of the best!

We have worked with Sonia in the Spring of 2017 to buy our home. We were so fortunate to have found Sonia Vu . As a buyer we had a wonderful experience working with her. Now, as a seller in 2018, we couldn't have been more pleased! The selling price of our home exceeded all the recent homes by a very large margin. Sonia ensured that the process was exceptionally seamless. We received multiple offers when the house went on the market, thanks in large part to Sonia's incredible work. Sonia brought in a fabulous photographer and videographer to showcase our home online, which created much more foot traffic and brought in serious buyers. She also brought in a designer to help stage our home, which helped make it more appealing to a larger group of potential buyers. Their marketing team is top notch and can't be beat! Although we received multiple offers, we ended up working with a cute first time buyers. Sonia was wonderful in keeping the transaction moving along and getting to closing in a timely manner. She was always available to answer our questions (and the buyers!). She was so responsive and is the sweetest person. We had a great experience!

When we first met Sonia, she explained that her job is more service than just business. Bingo, yes she is! That's the best quality we were always amazed about her. She is very positive, energetic, Sonia is also incredibly personable. On top of being exceptionally good at her job she felt like a friend after we first met her and certainly is a friend now.

However we speak, it would't be enough to explain our pleasant experience with Sonia Vu and how awesome Sonia was throughout the entire home Selling process

All the best Sonia! You are the best!

Before we made the decision to buy our first home in the Bay Area, we started going to open houses and looking at the current market we didn’t have high hopes that we would be able to find a home in a couple of months. We had met a few realtors in the process, but when we met Sonia, she really went out of her way to assist us in the home buying process. Just in the first meeting Sonia spent more than 3 hours and narrowed down our choices which really helped us to look for a better area and home that suited our requirements. Sonia helped us find a place in just two weeks and our second offer got accepted. Sonia is not only a good realtor but also has great negotiation skills that helped us get our home below the appraisal value.

Sonia Vu deals with everyone at a personal level and as a family. We really appreciate her efforts and skills that guided us to get a home in the Bay Area. Thank you, Sonia!!!
