SUCCESS STORIES

Over the period of almost a decade we have served and will continue to serve our clients in the best way possible.

Our Clients Love Us!

Some of our clients success stories.

Dear Han,

My family has owned The Sands apartment since 1963. During our long-time ownership, we have received daily calls and direct mails from other real estate brokers soliciting our business. When I decided to sell this property, it was crucial that I hire a broker that can give me the maximum price for this apartment to complete my 1031 exchange.  With that in mind, I knew exactly whom I should hire to represent me.

I have known you for some time and have seen how you were able to sell your listings at high price with multiple offers. Furthermore, you are an easy professional to work with and were willing to cooperate with my family member who’s also an active real estate broker.

The sale itself was not easy due to shared driveway. However, you convinced several buyers to submit their offers and then helped me pick the right buyer who’s in 1031 exchange and closed the transaction successfully WITHOUT any re-trade during escrow!

You deliver a result that exceeded my expectation. I always knew that you are the best apartment broker in South Pasadena area! Please rest assured that I will recommend you to my friends when they are looking for an excellent real estate broker in Los Angeles County area! I thank you for your professionalism and hard work in this project. 

Tamara Asseyev Longtime Multifamily Investor

I know many commercial real estate brokers that service Arcadia area. Owning Kenwood for more than 30 years, I received daily calls from brokers that wanted to sell my property. After seeing your success in getting top value for your clients’ properties, I decided to call you and ask for your opinion of value on my Kenwood.

I was quite astounded by the estimated value that you gave me as it was much higher than I originally had anticipated. I wasn’t sure that you would be able to deliver the result. However, immediately after listing it with you, you brought me 10 strong offers and helped me pick the right buyer that closed the property successfully in an all cash transaction! During the whole process, you were very professional, knowledgeable and responsive. I am very impressed with your professionalism and work ethics.

You and the GIG team exceeded my expectations and again, the resulting deal was exceptional. I was truly impressed with the level of service throughout the entire process. I will strongly recommend you and your team to any other real estate owners who are looking to sell property and need an expert broker that will obtain the best possible deal.

M.E.W. Multifamily Property Owner

Han: I have been involved in multi-family real estate since 1959. I have bought a number of apartment buildings, 46-unit, 41-unit, 8-unit in Whittier, 116-unit and 86-unit in Oregon. 

The sale of our Pasadena property was without a doubt the hardest and most difficult because of the high prices and small profit margins. It was one of the easiest sales over the years that I experienced.

Han Widjaja Chen did a great job of selling off-market to keep stress of my tenants and disruption in the building to a minimum. Thank you and I would not hesitate to use your services in the future. 

Garry Mogster Experienced Apartment Investor

Dear Han Widjaja Chen: Our partnership has owned the property since 1958 and in January 2017, we decided it was time to sell. We decided to hire you because of your persistence, diligence, and intimate knowledge of the Arcadia apartment market.

We were very pleased to have you bring us 5 strong offers within the first 10 days, and you helped us to pick the right buyer that closed the property successfully.

Your team delivered results that exceeded our expectations and the resulting deal was exceptional. We were happy with your service throughout the process and in fact, now consider you a friend. We would strongly recommend you and your team to other real estate owners who are looking to sell their property and need an expert broker that will obtain the best possible deal.

Michael F Holland Managing Partner of Villa Riviera, a California General Partnership

Dear Han: Before committing to an agent, I conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice in terms of investments they made into selling my property and how they promoted their listings. We have owned this apartment for close to 20 years and this sale is very important for our family investments. It was imperative that I found a broker who could get me the most value for my apartment property.

You and the Growth Investment Group stood out as the best San Gabriel Valley had to offer with your aggressive marketing tactics, diligent approach to your listings, and in-depth market knowledge. From the moment I hired you I knew the sale would be a smooth process.

You were able to deliver multiple all cash buyers and closed the deal at full asking price with only 13 days on the market! I am extremely pleased that this sale represents the highest price per unit for any apartment sale in the City of South Pasadena.

I thank you for your professionalism and hard work in this project. You deliver a result that exceeds my expectation. Please rest assured that I will definitely recommend you and the GIG team when I am looking to sell my other apartment properties. 

Charles Chruniak Apartment Investor

Our family and partners have been long-time apartment investors in South Pasadena since 1980. I initially hired Han Widjaja Chen back in 2012 after selecting him from 8 other brokers. We appreciate his professionalism, straight-forward and honest approach to problem solving. His honesty, strong work ethics and single focus in our best interests are what set him apart from other brokers.

Since selling my first building with Han, I’ve relied on him and his expertise whenever deciding to either sell or buy apartment properties in Los Angeles County. I recently hired him to sell my Magnolia Apartment in South Pasadena. I received unsolicited offers from a direct principal and discussed the All-Cash offer with Han. Putting that offer aside, I continued to list the property with Han at higher price and he successfully sold it for full asking price to an All-cash buyer! The result and process truly exceeded my expectations. Even my best friend who owns large apartment complexes told me that I got top price for my Magnolia Apartment.

I have also referred many close friends who were seeking for a dependable broker to help them sell their apartment properties. I recently referred Han to one of my tenants from China looking to invest in an apartment building in the US. Knowing Han’s work ethics I know that they are in very good hands. I told Han that I have other long-time apartment owners that are looking to sell this year and I will be referring them to him. 

Joan Lum Apartment Investor

Matthew was professional and really impressed us. Unlike other Riverside agents that we’ve dealt with who do it all Matthew only specializes in Commercial Apartments and it shows. He went over every step with us. He showed us what similar properties were selling for and what we could expect to get for our property. 

We had deferred maintenance and the property was in need of several repairs, to the point that I didn’t feel it was in selling condition. Matt assured us that he could sell it as is and he delivered above and beyond.     

He put a lot of effort into marketing the property ensuring that we had the best buyers possible.

 
We received many offers within the very first week, several of which were above asking. Matt helped us select the most qualified buyer. We ended up closing with an all cash offer above asking price. 

I would definitely use Matthew again and would have him sell any of my family member’s properties as well. 

Pedro Uriostegue Seller

We have owned the property since 1970s and decided to sell the property due to personal reason. We started entertaining offer from other broker before we exclusively listed with you.

We decided to hire you because of your diligence, professionalism, and knowledge about San Gabriel Valley apartment market. Before listing with you, you showed us a copy of simplified contract that we can use for the sale.

Immediately after listing it with you, you brought us additional 7 strong offers and helped us pick the right buyer that closed the property without any concessions.

Your team delivers result that exceeded our expectations and again, the resulting deal was exceptional. We are happy with the level of service throughout the entire process. We will strongly recommend you and your team to any other real estate owners who are looking to sell property and need an expert broker that will obtain the best possible deal. 

Charles W. Wong, AIA Architect & Commercial Property Owner

I knew I made the absolute right decision in selecting you and the Growth Investment Group when it came to listing my apartment building in Glendale. I required a broker that could get me the most profitable deal possible and because of your stellar track record, marvelous reputation, and knowledge of the market I decided to list my property with GIG. In simple terms, I was blown away by the exceptional results.  

I listed this property a year ago with another firm and they could not meet my goals. After listing my property with GIG I was able to receive a deal far above market value. Your team’s aggressive marketing efforts, advice and guidance truly exhibited your commitment to obtaining the best deal for me. You certainly helped me achieve my goal because of the higher selling price and higher net proceed.

Not only were you able to find the best deal possible, but also you completed one of the smoothest transactions I have ever experienced. You and the GIG team exceeded my expectations and again, the resulting deal was exceptional. I was truly impressed with the level of service throughout the entire process. I will strongly recommend you and your team to any other real estate owners who are looking to sell property and need an expert broker that will obtain the best possible deal.

Louise G. Commercial R.E. Owner

Dear Han: I remember the first time you ever called me was around 8 years ago. At the time, I was not ready to sell any of my apartment buildings. When I recently decided I would finally be selling, I knew I needed someone who was both tenacious and determined to ensure that this deal would close quickly and with minimal issues. For 8 years, you were the only broker to ever consistently call me to touch base and I admired that. You did not let my initial rejection deter you and this proved to me that you were the right man for the job.

Unsurprisingly, you were able to bring in strong offers from serious buyers within days of it being on the market. This is not only proof of the effectiveness of your marketing approach, but also a testament to the quality of the connections you have made in your illustrious career. Furthermore, your team has always been professional and responsive in all communications with me or my family members. It is reassuring to know that there are a group of committed professionals working around the clock to guide us every step of the way.

I always said that one of these days I will do a deal with you. That day is finally here with the successful sale of 711-715 Brent Ave.

Trusting your expertise, I chose the strongest offers from the most serious buyers and I let you handle the rest. Needless to say, you did not disappoint as there were never any major issues and escrow closed smoothly. After knowing you for so many years and seeing how hard you work, I can confidently recommend you to anyone that is looking to sell their commercial real estate. The fact that you go above-and-beyond for your clients is what sets you apart and I am thankful that you were the one to represent me in these deals. 

Arthur J. W. Long-time Apartment Investor

Dear Han: When I decided that I wanted to sell my apartment property, I knew I had to find a broker who was both knowledgeable and tenacious. Being a licensed agent myself, I had always seen your name everywhere pertaining to the sale of multifamily properties. After giving you a call and meeting with you for the first time, I understood why. Your expertise and proposed marketing strategy was significantly better and more thorough than what any other broker had presented to me in the past. Upon seeing your track record first-hand, I knew you would be the right broker to sell my property at top dollar.

You were able to procure around 10 offers on my property, demonstrating your persistence in your marketing efforts as well as your ability to negotiate good deals for me. For every single offer, you went into great detail about its pros and cons to help guide me into making the best choice. With your expertise and recommendation, I selected a strong, all-cash offer that was just under our aggressive asking price, and closed extremely quickly.

Not only were you able to help us choose the right buyer for our property, but you and your team provided an exceptional level of service throughout the whole process from listing to sale. It was a great pleasure working with you on this transaction and I would highly recommend Growth Investment Group to any apartment owners who are looking to sell their properties and need professional guidance in this market.

Leo S. Commercial Real Estate Owner

Han: As a licensed real estate agent mostly dealing in residential properties, I knew that I needed someone who specialized in apartments to help sell our asset as we prepared to exchange into something bigger. Having received plenty of your calls throughout the years and also working with members of your team in the past, I knew that the Growth Investment Group would be the right choice to help us with our goals. Your persistence in calling me with market updates throughout the past few years showed me that you are dedicated in your work and would not stop until my property was sold.

Almost immediately after the apartment went on the market, we were bombarded with multiple offers that were near or even above our asking price. This was impressive as it really showed just how effective your marketing strategies were. The fact that you and your team were able to compile it together so quickly was also extremely remarkable. Even after accepting an offer based on your recommendation, you still continued to invest in marketing our property just so we could have backups lined up. The level of service and commitment you provided to us is well appreciated.

There were a lot of obstacles that presented themselves before the closing of escrow and you and your team went to bat for us every time. The buyers for this deal were the most difficult ones we have ever had to deal with but you stayed calm and presented solutions at every turn. We are extremely glad that we had you on our side and this deal might not have closed without you. We would not hesitate to recommend you and the Growth Investment Group to anyone that is looking to sell their properties and need expert representation.  

Alan A. Real Estate Broker/Investor

After owning our apartment buildings for many decades, we decided that we wanted to see what the market could offer and possibly trade up to a bigger investment. We have been looking several years for a broker that can help us reach our investment goal and we truly found that with you after tried working unsuccessfully with many different brokers. Knowing that this over-saturated seller’s market would soon adjust itself in the next year or so, you were able to bring buyers for our 2 apartment buildings extremely quickly and at prices we wanted. The fact that you worked with our timeline and delivered the sale of both of our properties within a week or so of each other is a testament to your aptitude and capability as a broker.

Even more impressive is the fact that you were able to streamline the sale of our properties with the purchase of our exchange property that closed days after our 2nd apartment was sold. We strongly doubt that another broker could have coordinated these 3 transactions as smoothly as you did. Throughout the entire process, you and your team were always available and handled yourselves like true professionals. With 3 transactions happening concurrently, there were bound to be some small hiccups along the road but your company ensured that any problems that were occurred got resolved.

We can truly say that we’ve found our broker and we have plans for many more deals in the future. Anybody who is looking to sell or invest in the commercial real estate market would be wise to seek out you and your team. Your knowledge and expertise are great assets that other brokers cannot yet provide our family and we want to thank you for helping us navigate this market.

Mr. Won K. Investor

As an owner of multiple multifamily properties in San Gabriel Valley for more than 20 years, I recently hired Han Widjaja Chen to represent me in the sale of an apartment building in Pasadena.

He took time to understand my requirement, the property and then priced the property aggressively to maximize value in current market. He diligently marketed the property and blanketed the market with the offering. He fully cooperates with brokerage communities to maximize value and minimize time on market.

In the end, he produced multiple offers with two full price offers from other brokers. He successfully closed the transaction at full asking price and helped me achieve my goal for this property. I highly recommend Han as a listing broker to any seller who is considering selling their multifamily properties in San Gabriel Valley area.

Eric W. South Pasadena, CA

As an owner of a high quality apartment building in a highly desirable area of San Gabriel Valley, I talked with many brokers who were trying to help me sell my building. This has provided me with a large selection of qualified brokers who can help me market and sell my apartment building.

I decided to hire Han Widjaja Chen to help me sell the apartment because he shows consistency, persistence, and professionalism to execute the job. In addition, the fact that he successfully sold more than $75,000,000 worth of commercial real estate within the past 3 years in a down market and access to ±30,000 buyers and brokers also reinforced my decision to hire him.

My decision was spot on. He produced Seven (7) offers from qualified buyers. He connected me with other qualified real estate professionals that assisted me in clarifying a title transfer issue. He professionally orchestrated the due diligence and escrow period with buyer.  He worked with the appraiser in justifying the contract price based on his deep knowledge of the market.

Best of all, he helped me avoid price reduction during escrow and successfully closed the transaction.

I cannot say enough about Han’s professionalism in selling apartment building and would highly recommend him as a listing broker to any seller who is considering selling their apartment property.

Carl C. El Cerrito, CA

I want to personally thank you for your assistance and professionalism with the sale of my apartment property in South Pasadena.

As mentioned to you, I interviewed three other local brokers for the job before I hired you. I even met with them several times. These brokers showed me the lowest sales comparable that are not comparable to my property with the hope that I will sell my building at the lowest price.

You on the other hand were exceptional. You presented detailed sales comps, pointed out how you are going to sell my building, and provided me with good listing price recommendation.

After I signed the listing agreement, you delivered exactly as you promised. In about two weeks I had 2 solid offers. You then used those offers against each other to bid up the sales price. It really comforts me knowing that I sold my property at the highest price this market can pay.

In addition, I really like your approach to solving various problems that arise during due diligence period. You presented the problem calmly, and then give recommendation for me to make my decision. I have done many real estate transactions in the past, but this is the first time I felt that my broker really protect my interest and represent me to his best ability.

It has been a pleasure working with you and I truly enjoyed your professionalism and your unique approach to brokerage. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Branko M. South Pasadena, CA

Han Widjaja Chen initially provided us with an aggressive opinion of value for our property. We invited other brokers to bid for the business as well. We decided to exclusively list our property with Han Widjaja Chen due to his professionalism and aggressive pricing.

Within short period of time we received multiple offers. The first several offers were low compared to our expectation; however, Han was able to leverage those offers and secured an offer that is very close to asking price.

The transaction itself took longer than usual due to various hurdles with the buyer’s loan and the fact that we have 3 other family members as part of ownership. Han was able to resolve those issues, bridge all communications between 4 sellers and a buyer, and held the transaction together. During this period, we were working with our 1031 exchanges as well. We are very happy to know that we sold our property for 10% more than appraisal value. Han helped us sold our property for over than market price.

We endorse Han for his aggressiveness, diligence, and persistence in finding the right buyer, negotiating highest price for us and handling this sale. We strongly recommend Han to other commercial real estate investors that need an excellent commercial real estate broker. 

Asif S. Pasadena, CA

You have done an excellent job with the sale of our apartment building in South Pasadena! We are very happy with the result that you brought to us. The pricing estimates that you gave us were aggressive but achievable and you proved it through the successful closing of this transaction.

Of course we had a major bump with the appraisal value being 20% below sales price; however, you were able to have buyer close the transaction without any price reduction!

You are the consummate professional, and I have enjoyed every step of the sale process with you. I would love to work with you again in the future for any apartment transactions I might have. 

Alexander N. Pasadena, CA

I want to convey my appreciation for your successful effort in marketing my apartment property in Baldwin Park.

You brought many offers through your marketing efforts and helped me pick the right buyer that closed the transaction successfully.  In addition, you helped me get a discount on current loan pre-payment penalty with my lender through your relationship with the lender.

I really appreciate the added value that you brought to the table. I would love to work with you again in the future for any multifamily transaction I might have.

 

Jimmy C. Baldwin Park, CA

I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with you as my listing broker. I found you very professional, responsive, as well as knowledgeable. You worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract detail, negotiation, and a systemized process of selling an apartment building. Best of all, you delivered great result and sold my property for 5% more than asking price, with a total of 18 offers!

There is no way for me to express how much I appreciate the tremendous value of working with you, but I will absolutely be working with you again when the time comes to buy or sell my next property. 

 

Helena D. Southern CA Apartment Investor

I want to personally thank you for going out of your way to make the sale of my property successful and painless. I encountered many challenges during the marketing process and escrow period; however, you as my broker provided great advices to make this transaction possible and successful. Your team carried out the transaction logistics excellently and even helped with the distribution of tenant notices.

Ultimately, you sold my property for the full asking price and the buyer closed the transaction without any price reduction.

It was truly a pleasure working with you and I look forward to my next real estate transaction with you.

Raymond C. South Pasadena, CA

First and foremost, I would like to express my gratitude for your hard work that made these 1031 Exchange transactions possible. 

Your knowledge, expertise and diligence on the sale of my properties and these exchanges were evident throughout the process. You not only helped me sell my property but you found replacement properties that yield higher cash flow than my previous ones. 

I appreciate the tremendous work you put on these transactions and I look forward to our next real estate transactions. 

Teng K. Sierra Madre, CA

We would like to personally thank you for your expertise, outstanding service and integrity in handling the sale of our apartment property in Rosemead, CA. There are many professionals in the business but few who have your market knowledge and execution.

Your multifamily market knowledge and relationships with area investors are invaluable. Thanks to your experience, we received multiple full-priced offers and a closed transaction with a short due diligence period without any re-trade attempt from the buy side.

Your pricing strategy, though aggressive is achievable, which ensured we received the maximum value for our property.

Bottom line, we appreciate your tenacity in making the transaction run smoothly. You exceeded our expectations. It was a pleasure working with you and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

Kathleen D. Rosemead, CA

I listed my property with other commercial real estate broker before I decided to list with you. From the start, you showed tremendous professionalism, persistence, and diligence. As a former active real estate broker, I know that these are the qualities that differentiate you from other brokers.

You brought me multiple offers that were very close to asking price and gave excellent advice in choosing a buyer that closed the transaction successfully. You helped me found an all cash buyer that made a very strong offer.

It was truly a pleasure having you represent me as my listing broker. I enjoyed working with you and your team and would highly recommend you to other apartment owners who want to sell their apartment properties.

Amer H. Pasadena, CA

I received daily calls from many brokers that claimed they can sell my property at high price. These brokers never brought any offer on my property. I have been in the business for a long time and I know that they are fishing for a listing. When I met you, you brought an offer immediately from a buyer that was going to redevelop my property. Shortly after that I decided to list my property with you.

During the listing period, you showed tremendous professionalism, persistence and dedication in selling my property. You brought a total of six (6) offers on my property; all were your buyers, at prices that I like. I believe you sold my property at higher price than other sale comparable in the city of Downey.  My Alameda apartment is a mixed use building; thus, the sale took longer. You helped me and the buyer navigate the whole process. Your experience and resourcefulness in handling this sale is amazing.

My family thank you for the result you delivered; the value you bring to us truly exceeded our expectation. With this sale you have helped us achieve our retirement goal faster. It will be our honor to recommend you to any property owner who wants to sell their apartment property and gets an excellent result. 

Abel R. Downey, CA

I wanted to thank you for your hard work and support through the process of selling our property in South Pasadena. The property had been in our family for several decades and selling it required a delicate approach to preserve the community living in our building.

 

Before we decided to work with you, we met with several brokers in the area but none matched your professionalism and track record of success.  Your effective pricing and marketing strategies resulted in several offers and at a price that was favorable to us.  Without your knowledge and expertise, I am sure that we would not have been able to obtain these results.

 

It is so important to us that this transaction went smoothly and that the community that lives in our building was preserved. It was a pleasure to work with you and we hope to have the opportunity to work with you and your team again.

Stella A. South Pasadena, CA

Thank you for your tremendous effort and service when helping me sell my apartment building in Pasadena.  As an experienced real estate broker myself, I can speak to the level of professionalism and quality of service that you and your team were able to provide. You and your team helped to make this one of the best experiences I have had working with a broker. 

 

It is without a doubt that this professionalism and service, in addition to your skills as a broker, resulted in us obtaining a top price for the property. We were presented with multiple qualified offers and ended up having one of the smoothest escrows I have ever experienced.

 

I am extremely pleased with how attentive and thorough you and your team were when dealing with all aspects of the transaction, from listing to close. I will definitely recommend Growth Investment Group to my family and friends for their investment real estate needs and look forward to having the opportunity to work with you again in the future.

Louie A. Alhambra, CA

We could not be happier with the level of service we received from you and your team. Our property was in our family for more than 45 years and it was a major part of our retirement nest egg. When it came time to sell, we needed someone who would be able to find a buyer who would pay the top price and care for the place like we did for all those years.

You and your team were able to present almost 10 offers to us for our property and we were able to sell it for full asking price without any credit to the buyer. We know that we did not leave any money on the table on this sale. This process had its challenges, but you and your team were able to guide through it all and we are extremely happy with the results.

I am confident that we would not have been able to navigate the sale without the expert guidance of you and your team. I would recommend GIG to anyone who is looking to sell their apartment building and needs a top broker who will give them the attention and guidance they need through every step of the process. 

Donna P. San Gabriel, CA

We decided to hire you and your team to help us find a suitable replacement property to complete our 1031 exchange. We sold our multifamily property to reduce our management responsibilities. We were on a tight deadline because we had already sold our down-leg property. You and your team were able to identify several suitable properties for us to choose from. In the end, we decided to purchase 18782 Beach Boulevard in Huntington Beach and were able to get the property at an exceptional price.

You were able to advise us on how to structure our offer in a way that would make it the most attractive to the seller, enabling us to obtain the property for well under the list price and for less than offers from other buyers. We were able to close escrow on the property swiftly and well within the required timeline for us to complete our exchange. Your dedicated service, attention to detail and market knowledge put GIG in a class above other brokers and made this transaction as seamless as possible. I would highly recommend you and your team at the Growth Investment Group to anyone who is completing a 1031 exchange. 

Frits H. Rowland Heights, CA

We weren’t originally planning to sell our property in Arcadia but the unique market we are experiencing today presented an opportunity that we could not refuse. My family was the original developer of the property in 1989 and we were proud to own 838 Fairview for the time that we did.

After interviewing several other brokers, we decided to hire you and your team to list the property and we achieved exceptional results.  After procuring close to 10 offers, we were able to close escrow on time and broke the record for the highest price per unit ever for an apartment building in the City of Arcadia. I am excited to know that we did not leave any money on the table on this sale.

This record sale demonstrates the skill and ability of you and your team as top brokers in the area. It is clear that you are willing and able to go above and beyond to ensure your clients satisfaction. The transaction was as seamless as possible thanks to you and your team and I would recommend GIG to anyone looking to sell their property. 

Kip M. Carlsbad, CA

We own a portfolio of apartment properties in excess of 1,000 units in greater Los Angeles area. We recently repositioned our portfolio and decided to work with Han Widjaja Chen to help us sell our properties. During the past 24 months he successfully helped us in selling eight of our properties with excellent results.

We really appreciate the expertise, professionalism, tenacity and persistence that he brings to the table. He brought us aggressive offers from qualified and proven buyers that closed the deals.

We absolutely recommend Han Widjaja Chen to any potential client based on the superb seller representation he provided.

Tim H. Los Angeles, CA

This letter is to show my appreciation for your selling efforts and persistence in helping me to close Villa Washington transaction in Pasadena. I have been involved with real estate for over thirty years as an investor. I can attest that this has been one of the most complex transactions that I have completed.

There were eight (8) different parties involved in this transaction and large quantities of due diligence documents. With legal counsels, multiple entities, and seller that have their own ideas, it was not an easy one. You certainly brought tremendous value to the transaction and have made this a successful acquisition for me.

I am totally pleased with every aspect of our relationship. Thank you so very much and I look forward in our continued working relationship in multifamily investments.

Jack V. Altadena, CA

Please accept this letter as my complete and full endorsement of the excellent services provided in relation to the successful marketing and sale of Meridian Apartments located in South Pasadena, California.

In today’s market, having a skilled broker on your side is critical. Your services were of tremendous value to me and your track record speaks for itself as we had 8 offers within a 2 month time frame.

You have proven to be effective, knowledgeable and efficient. You have been involved in the process every step of the way from top to bottom. Your handling of this transaction from conducting tours, due diligence, appraisal and negotiations were invaluable and critical for closing this deal.

Louise G. Malibu, CA

You are truly a dedicated professional who knows your surrounding market and area well. Your marketing strategies were top notch. You brought together vast expertise, experiences, and connections that were great assets when trying to sell a property.

You helped us sell our apartment property at a good price to us and were able to make this a win-win situation for buyer as well. We cannot thank you enough for guiding us with our negotiations and the closing process.

We truly appreciate the value that you brought and would love to work with you again in the future for any multifamily transaction that we might have. It was a great pleasure working with you! We would highly recommend you to anyone selling or purchasing multifamily properties.

Zan M. Malibu, CA

Thank you for a job well done on our Del Mar Apartment building in Pasadena, CA. As a former TOP Agent with Coldwell Banker for twenty five years, I am familiar with the real estate process and ups and downs typical with any transaction.

You were tenacious in your communication about the apartment market for several years, and even though it was always pleasant to speak with you and learn updated information about the apartment market, we always said we were not interested in selling. Nonetheless, you brought us the perfect buyer and for a price that we could not reasonably refuse, insomuch as it is the highest price per unit in all of Pasadena. Your impeccable negotiation skills have truly set the bar for other brokers.

I enjoyed working with you from the beginning meeting to the close of escrow. It would be an honor for me to recommend you to any apartment owner who may be thinking of selling and their hoep to get the best results possible.

Carolyn C. Active Real Estate Broker - De Luz, CA

I want to convey our partnership’s appreciation to you. You have proven to be very resourceful and effective in selling our apartment property in Pasadena. As mentioned to you several times, I interviewed several brokers before deciding to exclusively list it with you. It was the right decision to make.

You professionally presented our property in the best lights and brought us seven (7) offers. We achieved our target sales price. We understand that you sold our property for higher than its appraised value; that was good news to us.

My partners and I really appreciate your diligence, resourcefulness and ability to bring the sale to its finish line. You deliver an excellent result for us. Without hesitation we are happy to contact your for our future business.

You helped us by working with our attorney in pursuing the sale of our 20-units apartment in Pasadena. With multiple owners within the family partnership, the sale was not an easy one. You persistently worked with us for more than a year before our family partner agreed to sell the property.

You brought us multiple offers from qualified buyers and advised us in choosing the most qualified buyer who closed the transaction successfully. You then assisted us with our 1031 exchange and helped us in getting another apartment in Monrovia. You guided us throughout the purchase process and we were ecstatic to get a property that fits well within our criteria.

We recently selected Han Widjaja Chen to partner up with our son at Keller Williams Realty in listing our 28-units apartment for sale. During the listing period, Han’s team brought multiple offers from qualified buyers. He found a strong buyer that made a solid offer on our property. His negotiation expertise provides tremendous value especially during due diligence period. He successfully orchestrated the transaction and made this a win-win transaction for all parties.

Patrick O. & Sean O. Oxnard, CA

We received unsolicited offers from other brokers before we decided to exclusively list the property with you. As a result, you brought us higher offer from the same buyer that submitted the previous offer and they closed the transaction successfully within our timeframe.

You have helped us sold TWELVE (12) of our properties within the past 36 months and we are happy with all the results and value you are bringing to the table. We look forward to do our next real estate transactions with you.
