  • “Well, where should I start? Let’s just start by saying the whole house buying process was a fantastic journey. Peggy’s professionalism and integrity makes the process well organized and worryless. 

     I knew Peggy from a friend. I was actively looking for apartments and houses in late 2019. Once I spotted an apartment and almost bought it. But Peggy insisted that it was not a good decision, later it turned out that the apartment had many flaws, which would easily be overlooked by someone new to the market like me.  From then on, I made up my mind that if I ever wanted to buy a property, I would need approval from Peggy, as she is the most trustworthy and professional person I personally know in the Bay Area. 

    In late 2020, I finally decided that I wanted my own property and found some condos that looked really nice. Peggy immediately told me that those are well made and the location was good so that we should act quickly. The first time we visited the condo, she knew that the condo was from a reputable company and of good design and quality compared to others in the area. It had a great view and was very spacious. I trusted her judgement and we quickly moved on with an offer. Thanks to Peggy’s fantastic negotiation skills, we were actually able to secure a deal before all other offers came in and formed a competition. The price was beyond reasonable. 

    Here I am sitting in my new condo, bathing in the great California sunshine, and feeling very warm and happy on a chilly winter morning. I can’t help thinking about how fantastic this deal was, like every day. 

    Without Peggy's help, I wouldn’t dream of buying a property like this. Her enormous experiences in this market helped me quickly make the mind. Her connection in the field helped me obtain the pre-approval letter in the lightening way that we were able to send the offer letter before everyone else.  Her great negotiation skills made the offer hard to refuse without us paying extra. 

     All in all, I would highly recommend her to everyone willing to sell or buy property in the bay area. You are not just buying a property. You buy yourself a lifetime trust and great friend in this field. “

  • “Thanks to Peggy and her team who helped me and my wife buy this amazing single family home in Sunnyvale. It was an incredible journey and it wouldn't have been possible without them.  

    They did hard research and kept on updating new listings to us. Before we made the offer, Peggy reviewed the house and double checked everything. Peggy even went to the house and stayed for a long time to check if there were any noise issues. We really appreciate that she could spend such time to double check the house. In order to compete with other offers, Peggy guided us to write a letter to the seller and present how much we want to buy. Peggy negotiated with the listing agent and applied the best strategy and advised a reasonable price range to make the offer. In the end, we beat the other offers including one cash offer!!!

     It was an amazing journey with Peggy and her team. We are sure we will work with them again in the future. We will definitely recommend Peggy Jia Chen Real Estate Team to our friends. Buying a home becomes so enjoyable since Peggy and her team work for us and take care of us like their family.”

  • “We worked with Peggy and her real estate elite team in the purchase on our first home. The Silicon Valley market is quite unique and the Peggy is highly knowledgeable of what it entails to have a successful experience in this area. Peggy kept us updated on the state of the market and once we were ready, we began looking at homes. Peggy took a lot of care in helping us assess each potential purchase and also found a listing that was exactly the type of home we were looking for.

    Throughout the process, Peggy and her team were extremely thorough in explaining each of the many steps. Getting into contract and the negotiation process was quite seamless and incredibly fast. We could truly understand the benefits of working with a team that is highly experienced and skilled, as we were able to go from seeing a home for the first time to living in it in just about a month. As first time buyer, there are so many "firsts" to go through when buying a home, and Peggy guided us at every step of the way. She answered every question we had and made sure we had all the information we needed in order to proceed with confidence. We highly recommend you work with Peggy and her team.”

  • “We had a great experience working with Peggy and her team. We interviewed 3 top rated agents to sell our Menlo Park property and we were very happy that we decided to work with Peggy.

    Our listing was timed to go on the market right at begging of summer. Peggy didn't miss a beat. She was quickly taking actions and investing (at her expense) in new ways to market our property. She didn't despair, blame or throw up her hands. She hustled, got creative and made it happen. Whoever thinks real estate agents just take some pictures of a property and then sit back and collect fees, don't understand all of the work that Peggy and her team do to make a successful sale happen.

    Peggy is optimistic but realistic, knows the real estate market & has strong working relationships with key agents. The vendors she pointed us to who helped with preparation and staging all did an excellent job and the team managed the project really tightly.  Great communication throughout the process.

    Given market conditions you may be able to find another agent who will be willing to work with you for a discounted fee, but my sense is that your overall outcome has the highest potential with Peggy & team. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again.”

  • “We are very grateful to have Peggy as our agent and our friend. She was the first person who came into our minds when we decided to settle down in the Bay Area and seek professional advice. Peggy was more than happy to help us with our house hunting and treated us like family members. Peggy believed that it’s important to teach us how to fish instead of giving us the fish directly. She gave us an introduction to the real estate at the very beginning of our journey and asked us to spend two weeks digesting the knowledge and warming up.

     Peggy also provided very dedicated support throughout the purchase. She assigned one of her elite agents, Joan, to closely work with us and she also reviewed the house selection with Joan weekly. Things went really smoothly. We quickly spotted a new construction and after discussing it with Peggy, we decided to submit an offer. Since Peggy has a very strong relationship with the builder, we landed with a good offer. 

    A smooth journey may have some bumpy parts though. We experienced an unexpectedissue when it came to closing. The appraisal company dropped the ball and the closing was delayed by a week due to the late appraisal. Peggy and her team played a very important role here. On one hand, since the lender and Peggy are very close, the lender decided to cover the late closing fee for us. It was a big relief to us and we got our composure back. One the other hand, Peggy played some magic and persuaded the builder to waive the late closing fee. In the end, we didn’t pay any penalty.  Magic again! It’s a blessing in disguise. Thanks Peggy and her team. What a journey! “

  • “I highly recommend working with Peggy and her team!I recently purchased my first home working with Peggy and her real estate elite team. It was a wonderful experience and I fully intend to work with Peggy again in future purchases/sales. Throughout the process Peggy was incredibly professional, thoughtful and well-informed. During COVID, as a first time home buyer I was anxious about the process and she patiently walked me through all the steps of home buying. I genuinely felt cared for and feel very grateful that I selected Peggy as my agent.

    Peggy and her team were very responsive, efficient, thorough and able to answer any question and explain every document with ease. With her expertise, masterful negotiation and strong partnerships with the selling agent, I bought my first home in only two months of working together. I couldn't have done this without her. Thank you Peggy for making my dream comes true!”

  • “Peggy and her Legend team have achieved what other agents couldn't! Other Agent couldn't sell my house for almost half of a year, I was so frustrated! Thanks for Peggy and her team, my house was sold for $1.86M! The whole process is so smooth, I am extremely satisfied! If you want to sell a house, ask Peggy! She has a lot of local and international clients! In house market, those who have buyers are kings!”

  • “Thanks to Peggy and her team (Peggy Jia Chen Real Estate Team) who helped me buy this amazing townhouse, an end unit in a nice quiet community in Santa Clara with a beautiful view of a golf court! It was an incredible journey and I couldn’t made it without them.

    I was a first-time buyer and in the very beginning I really didn’t know what I should do. I set my expectations low and I was not even thinking of buying houses in Santa Clara. Peggy went through the current real estate market and set up my target based on my income and current lifestyle. She taught me a lot of investment knowledge and guided me to set up my expectations at a high level. After 3 weeks of checking houses we found one lovely townhome, which is one that I own now. The seller set up a rush offers due date on Monday. Peggy had her team agent got the offer ready in the weekend. On the due date Peggy negotiated with the sale agent for the whole afternoon. And eventually we beat the other 4 offers and got the house. The most amazing part is that Peggy was able to make the owner accept our offer when our number is the same as the second offer. 

     It was an amazing journey with Peggy and her team. I’m pretty sure we will work together again in the future. I will definitely recommend the Peggy Jia Chen Real Estate Team to my friends. Things become so enjoyable since Peggy and Joan treat me like their family. “

  • “Peggy and her team were outstanding in helping me with my first home purchase! I picked Peggy based on a friend’s recommendation and because my experience with other agents was not great. Peggy took time out to educate me on the bay area market and were patient with me when I turned down homes I didn’t think met my needs. Peggy is so experienced with great reputation, rich resources and networking in Bay Area, which made the buying process smoothly and is the major reason I was able to get a winning offer for a home. Peggy worked diligently with the listing agent after bids were due to and negotiated with the listing agent past 11pm at night to get my offer selected out of many competitive bids. Having Peggy and her team work on my behalf allowed me to own property in the bay area that I can settle down in for the long term! I highly recommend to work with Peggy and her team to buy/sell your house.”

  • “We relocated to the Bay Area nearly half a year ago before we started to look for a property. As our understanding of the local real estate market was limited, it was extremely valuable to have Peggy as our agents from the start of house hunting.  Peggy and her team are very professional and helpful. They spent hours talking to us, understanding our needs and limitations, and answering our questions. Peggy assigned one of her elite agents spent weekends visiting open houses with us. Also, she provided objective data not only about the properties we were interested in but also the entire neighborhood to give us a better idea about that area.

    Peggy and her team worked very hard to put together a comprehensive package for us. They went through the disclosure documents with us very carefully explaining lots of details we were not aware of. Peggy clearly explained her strategy on house bidding. We can feel that she is very expert, knowledgeable and caring for her clients. She presented us very nicely to the seller and eventually got us the offer among multiple competitive potential buyers. We highly recommend Peggy and her team to anyone looking to buy in this stressful market. “

  • “Peggy and her team helped sold our house in Sunnyvale. During the progress, she is very helpful and responsible. She also have good social and networking skills. She has her own circle of friends where she can advertise the house for sell, this will greatly increase the chance to sell by having more potential buyers. She works hard during the open house even after hours. I will strongly recommend her as your real estate agent.”
