Andy is many things...a professional, a confidant, a visionary, and a finance genius. He is able to combine so many different talents into being an agent, and the clients get the benefit. Andy patiently, and efficiently, helped us find a home here in SF. It is no easy task to even compete here in SF. As a very Type A person, Andy managed to exceed my expectations and anticipate all of my questions and needs before I could voice them. Though we were house hunting in SF, Andy guided us through the process and made trips up to the Bay Area at a moments' notice. In this crazy economy, we managed to find our forever home in less than 4 months with Andy's guidance. He has even linked us with reputable contractors to help with future remodels. Andy methodically sent us listings each week and discussed them with us, even following up after crucial viewings. He also set us up on a timetable to get our finances in order so that there was no last minute scramble. When we lacked vision to see how a "fixer upper" had any potential, he was up here right beside us walking us through the potential "after" of the home. Andy, you are one in a million!

Andy Yang is an incredible real estate agent. His ability and expertise in market assessment and competitive analysis are truly amazing. I cannot say enough about the how detailed and accurate he was in preparing his analysis and assessment. Andy guided us through the sale, helping us set a smart listing price, prepare for the open house process, and generate multiple offers. We sold our house for a record price in our community because of his assessment and ability to drive traffic through our open house (just needed one weekend). Andy created great marketing materials and presented a beautifully staged house. He is a full service agent leading a complete team to handle any urgent needs for his listed properties, including quality handymen and contractors, as well as lenders. He responded quickly to every e-mail or phone call. Andy made the sale of our house such an easy transaction.

I recently closed a transaction with Andy as a Buyside agent. This was our first time buying but not our first time working with a realtor - we had previously looked into buying before with Redfin and another time with a friend of ours who happened to be a realtor as well. After experience both then working with Andy, I highly recommend Andy!We viewed numerous properties and all along the way he provided fantastic advice. Given this was our first purchase he educated us fully with everything from the offer process and drafting up a contract, to putting us in touch with a lender, to the property inspection, which he was present for, all the way through escrow and closing. He even gave us property maintenance advice to top it off!He has an excellent network of loan professionals (we worked with Ryan Purpero at Bank of America - also a 5 star experience!), contractors & property inspectors.Andy is a true professional and we were comfortable at all stages of the process. He was attentive, always answering or returning our calls very quickly, was available to show us properties on short notice and kept us well informed along the way. Plus you knew he was on our side, not pressuring us into a deal that wasn't right for us just to make a commission. Having a true professional such as Andy is well worth it and I will highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy/sell. We will definitely be using him again!

Andy got us our dream home in the toughest real estate market in the nation! And we didn't have loads of cash to throw at it. Not my first home purchase and not the first agent I worked with, but definitely the best! Andy is a REAL professional who came to our rescue when we were losing hope constantly getting outbid while home prices continued to rise. After meeting with Andy for the first time, I was angry at myself for wasting so many months with my ex-agent. His level of knowledge and experience was not just impressive, but also encouraging. Contrary to popular belief that "money/price" is everything, there is a lot more involve in this game and Andy has got it. His background in finance and connections with some of the most competitive lenders, he helped us set our financial ducks in a strongest row despite our limitations. He then came up with a real strategy and plan of action before we began. Andy sent us a custom list of houses he vetted prior with pro/con comments so we saved time going to very specific open houses. His experience in home remodeling and renovation was invaluable since we were looking for a "fixer" and he could quickly give us an idea on what we are up against. A few times he stopped us from buying a "money pit" despite our strongest efforts to go for it and take a risk. Andy was there for us to listen and answer all and any questions in time of doubts when it came to making an offer. During this very challenging and emotional difficult process he was a shoulder to lean on and that alone was priceless. Did I mention he was ALWAYS available? Phone or email, he was always around the corner. After we made our offer, Andy began the real fight for us. A point where many agents will just sit and wait leaving it up to the faith, is where you want a strong agent who can make it happen. He worked with our lender, agents, inspectors and other parties involved to ensure everything went smooth. I could not believe how much was going on behind the scene to make this deal happen. If there was a "buyer's fee" I would pay it because Andy was totally worth it!


Andy recently helped me close my first home purchase in the Bay Area. Despite being based in SoCal, the distance was never an issue. He stayed in contact several times a week to go over upcoming open houses and the pros/cons of each property. Once we decided on which ones to visit, he would come up almost every 2nd weekend.

He walked me through every step of the process in great detail and made sure all my concerns were addressed. He is very meticulous and thorough in his approach to every aspect of the transaction. Both lenders and selling agents commended him on his expertise and how thorough he was. I have already recommended Andy to all my friends and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Andy, thanks again for your help and guidance!
