Testimonials

Mandy & Savio

It is with gratitude that we write this letter of recommendation for our realtors David Chung and Sunny Kim of Alain Pinel Realtors. Buying a house is never a straight forward process, and ours is no exception. Throughout the entire process, David and Sunny have demonstrated high levels of professionalism and negotiation skills. Whenever we need to contact them for advice, they always returned phone calls and emails promptly. THey have worked very hard to resolve issues that came up during the closing process in a timely manner, and their deep knowledge in Real Estate was invaluable in helping us find a house that we love.

We highly recommend David and Sunny.

David and Sunny steered us to a house that initially didn’t fit our criteria, but I’m glad they did because we love it now. It was our first home buying experience so everything was overwhelming and quick but David and Sunny were very knowledgeable and walked us through the process smoothly. They went above and beyond our expectations. Thanks again!…

David & Annie

A friend of my wife’s referred us to David and Sunny. Initially, we were just going to interview them to get another reference because we had previously met with another South Bay/Peninsula ‘expert.’ It goes without saying that we are so happy that we took a meeting.

In a matter of 10 days, David and Sunny helped us navigate the very competitive South Bay market and get an offer accepted on a single family home in Cuesta Park (Mtn View). I should also mention we ended up writing 3 offers in the same time period. Their experience and expertise allowed us to pursue the right opportunities on our terms. In an environment where it seems as if you’re competing with parties that have an unlimited amount of resources, it is imperative to have professionals who can work effectively with your situation.

I should also mention that David and Sunny are more than closers. They also have a reputable network of service professionals to help you address the specific needs of your new home. Whether it be a handyman or a fumigation company (that’s right… termites), Sunny and David will refer you to responsible and cost conscious providers.

We will not hesitate to refer friends and family to David and Sunny. They embody all of the characteristics one needs to execute a successful real estate transaction.

David and Sunny helped me selling my townhouse. I started to review yelp to find perfect team. I had interviewed three teams from different sources. The first team made consistent efforts in our community to send the information of seminars and market report. The second team was the realtor who sold my neighbor’s house for the record high price. David and Sunny was the last team that I interviewed. Sunny and David showed the superiority of their marketing strategy backed by Alain Pinel Realtors. Not only they had the best marketing materials, the presentation of Sunny was the one of the best professionals. I believed the passion that I saw in the first meeting will lead me through the sales transaction successfully.

That decision was right. Right after sign the listing agent contract, they finished to do lists one by one in a blast speed of light. It took less than a week from the sign to list of my house to MLS. We finished all the inspections, repairs, and staging thanks to the networks that Sunny and David have. Our house was beautifully ready for the buyers. It would be a very frustrating week if David and Sunny were not there. We successfully finished the open houses and got multiple offers next week and most of all we broke the record high price of our neighborhood.

Stephen & Cheen

David and Sunny helped us selling our house and buying a new one in Los Altos. In preparation for the sale of our home, they guided us through the entire process, starting from preparing the repair list, recommending & finding contractors, staging and presenting the house. They have good intuition as to what buyers want and they also possess architectural and artistic sense on how to present the house for the market to get as many buyers to the house. They are expert negotiators and they made sure that we got the highest possible price for our house. We appreciate the team’s help a lot in the escrow process as it became stressful when the buyer kept delaying the closing. But David and Sunny were always on top of the situation, informed us of the progress, and gave expert’s advice. Plus they are good at drafting good, concise and explicit contracts/legal documents. So we will definitely recommend the team to our friends and family. David and Sunny also helped us buying our new house. Again, they have deep knowledge in the market, house construction, remodeling and costs associated therewith. They were able to guide us through which neighborhood worked for us as we were very particular about what we wanted in our next house. Once again, they helped us through the whole purchase process and got us our dream home at the best possible price. We are very happy with our purchase.

George & Mary

We gave David and Sunny the difficult task of selling a 91 year old house to buyers who predominantly preferred newer homes. They became immersed in the minutia of the history of our home and demonstrated great empathy for us as we rode the roller coaster house sale process. Sunny and her team were very impressive from our first meeting when she pitched “Team Sunny” and Alain Pinel. Their selling advice was spot on and their services included identifying superior vendors to implement this advice, including painters, stagers, handymen, inspectors and very reasonably priced cabinet vendors. They even gave us interior design advice which lead to a killer kitchen remodel that we think sold the house. Bottom line – we got the price we wanted and negotiated an “as-is” sale. We don’t think many Realtors could match their service or these results.

Bill & Trudi Melohn

David and Sunny have a very solid process for listing homes. They have some creative selling techniques that work very well, alongside the traditional approach. They were always available to answer questions, including in the middle of the night. They politely “rode” us, if they needed information:-)

We opted to take advantage of their off-market strategy. We held a broker’s open house prior to listing on the MLS. The hope was to gain insight on how much work would be needed to get the best price when it went on the market. We were, fortunately, in a very hot market, and were able to sell the house within days of our open house. Thanks to Sunny and David, we were able to move to our new home months sooner that would have been possible, if we’d taken the traditional approach. While these guys are not discount brokers – you’ll pay the full commission – they’re worth it if you want a seamless and error-free transaction.
