More About Me

Broker Associate

A Broker Associate at Windermere Diablo Realty in Walnut Creek, I have more than twenty-five years of real estate experience serving my clients in the United States as well as from Hong Kong, China and Taiwan.

I speak, read and write both English and Chinese, Mandarin and Cantonese. I published a book on "American Home Ownership - The Chinese American Dream" which became a valuable guide for Chinese speaking homebuyers.

My business motto is "Plan - Action - Results". I believe a good plan is half way to success.

My business model has always been about educating my clients in helping them devise a plan, take appropriate actions and get the desired results.  That includes preparing the property for the market to get the highest possible price and making sure that all the disclosures and reports are properly prepared. A ready and honest file equals to a smooth transaction with no room for possible disputes. It will also help my clients to have the upper hand when it comes to negotiation.

On the buyers' side, I educate them on the market condition, guide them along with the process and connect them with the appropriate professionals as needed. If a buyer understands the market, he/she will be able to submit an offer with confidence and Once you understand the process
