To Whom it May Concern:

I contacted Jason when I had to sell our family home (since 1955) after my mother’s death. I knew he had been farming this Sunset district neighborhood for years and was quite familiar with it. Upon meeting him, I found he was also relaxed, yet confident, honest and straightforward, and had a wealth of information not only about the neighborhood, but services and contacts I would need to clean out the house and complete this sale. Being a licensed Real Estate Broker (who sold homes a long time ago and in another area of California), as well as currently living 85 miles away, I knew this was something I was not going to do myself, but I understood the process. I was so impressed by the way Jason handled everything from the inspections to cleaning, painting, and refinishing the floors, to staging the home, without me even having to be present! What a lot of time and energy he saved me. And he did it all pleasantly and punctually, keeping me informed at every step. His marketing approach was tried and true and resulted in multiple offers. When it came time to look at the offers, we went through them together, and the resulting sale was quite a bit over the listing price. 

If you’re looking for a competent and seasoned professional in this area, look no further than Jason Chan. He’s an excellent communicator and always did just what he said he would do. He went above and beyond what many agents would do, and he was a pleasure to work with. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Jason to take care of your real estate needs.

My family of four interviewed several realtors before putting our Sunset/Parkside home on the market. We all voted for Jason Chan: he knew our neighborhood's market inside and out, backwards and forwards. He impressed us with his proven track record, strategic capabilities, and professional demeanor. And on top of all that, he is simply a very likeable guy.

Jason guided us throughout the process with the utmost of patience, understanding, and kindness. He connected us with on-the-ball workers to transform the house in preparation for the sale. He was extremely quick in responding to our many questions and we always felt that he gave us good, sound advice. In the end, his marketing expertise and hard work got us a sales price higher than we expected. 

We are very grateful to have met Jason and to have him sell our home for us. If you are looking for a trustworthy realtor with a solid gold work ethic and a sparkling personality, Jason is your man.

Hi Jason,

 I just wanted to thank you so much for the hassle-free process that you took total charge of in the selling of our mother’s home.  You were forthright and honest in your conversations with us and guided us very skillfully through the improvements we made to the home prior to listing and in fact, handled the whole project for us in a very efficient manner.  We couldn’t be happier with the result and attribute it to your terrific participation throughout.  Thanks again for the great job and your wonderful customer service.

Dear Jason,

Thank you for helping us in the listing and selling of our family home in San Francisco.  I marvel at the ability to transact all the details electronically.  Your knowledge and skill helped every step of the way.  What really sets you apart though, is the customer service you provide.  You kept us up to date throughout the process, let us know what to expect and made the whole process easy for us even though we were in Sacramento.  It was a pleasure to do business with you.

Hi Jason,

 

A short note is not enough  to say THANK YOU for your good job!  It is truth that the Chinese Zodiac showed me that I will have good luck in the Year of Tiger because I could find someone like you as my Realtor Broker to represent me and my wife to sell our house.    This is our first time selling a house, you were so kind and patient in explaining the whole process to us and guiding us all the way through.   You were always responsive with the information we wanted to know and you never failed to call us back for any call that you might have missed.  We didn’t expect that we could complete the whole process in about a month’s time starting from signing the contract all the way through garage sale, beautifying and staging the house…… to escrow closing at a price sold well above our expectation.  We also want to express our thanks and appreciation for your help in organizing the garage sale for us,  like posting in the Craigslist, moving all stuffs from upstairs down to the garage and spending the whole morning with us on that day.  We didn’t expect you would do this for us in the process while what you did is so initiative.  It is also beyond our expectation that we could sell most of the old furniture and all other garage sale items including hundreds of orchids in our backyard only in one day.  It is really hard to find someone like you who can provide such a good service.  As my wife said to you after the escrow closing, you really deserved for the commission that my wife and I are so glad to pay! 

 

Thank you again.

I was on point to sell my mother's house that she and my father
purchased back in 1971. Fast forward 42 years later, my mother passed
away and I needed to sell the property. On a friend's recommendation, I
connected with Jason Chan.

Jason is the expert on the market; he had proven to me that he knows the
pulse of the buyers in the area: what they are looking for, what their
histories and tastes are, etc.

I gave Jason the task of selling the house, allowing him to work his
magic, and the results were quick and amazing! Jason basically took the
ball and ran with it: he did all of the marketing, prepped the house for
sale, arranging for all of the work that the house so desperately needed
(painting, re-flooring, and all other changes that were needed to sell
the house), and, after the first open house Sunday when 200 people
walked through the property, through his awesome marketing and sales
skills, he was able to find me several offers the following week after
the open house. And the sale closed very soon thereafter.

I was a novice in this process, and he patiently guided me through all
of the prep work, paper work, and also kept me mostly sane throughout
all of it! He was very easy to work with and was very open and honest
with all of the questions I had, and, given that this was the first time
I ever went through this process, I had a lot of questions and concerns!

Thanks to Jason, the house sold at an excellent price and within a very
short amount of time. He more than exceeded my expectations!

Wow! Hard to believe it's all over and done with, and that we had such an incredibly great outcome! We really appreciated the opportunity to work with you, Jason! We don't have enough kind words to say about you, to the point where you'd probably be embarrassed to hear us sing your praises :-)!

Thank you very much! And best wishes as you continue on in this crazy real estate season!

Hi Jason,
We thought moving was going to be stressful. We also thought selling our 1-bedroom San Francisco house was going to be difficult. We were wrong on both counts.

We contacted Jason
when we were first considering selling a year ago. He walked through our home and was very detailed and thorough in explaining the whole process. He was also straightforward in telling us that it wasn't an optimum time for us to sell. He was kind and didn't give us any false promises or hopes, and said he'd keep in touch.

Flash forward a little less than a year later and Jason kept to his promise to keep in touch and called us out of the blue. He was fairly certain that if we listed immediately we could not only meet our target price, but we would probably well exceed it. After multiple offers, we well exceeded all of our wildest dreams in the sales price and also the terms of the sale. Jason made the whole process very easy and stress free. He has great follow through, is very communicative, a smooth negotiator, punctual, seasoned, a great salesman, and has a joy for what he does. We're so happy he represented us. We wouldn't have had it any other way.

Thanks, Jason!

"We worked with Jason on the sale of our home in the Sunset and were extremely pleased with his professionalism, communication, and follow through in helping us close the sale.  In an extremely tough seller's market, Jason was up to the challenge.  We chose him to represent us based on his knowledge of the market and his successful sales record.  We were not disappointed.  I would highly recommend Jason to one and all."
