Keller Williams Realty
回忆当年，李文庆幸自己当初的选择，感恩教育的背景让她喜爱斯坦福大学的氛围，懵懂之间选择了Palo Alto ，感恩Palo Alto 这个社区的容纳，让自己从当年一个身无分文，每天都要为第二天的生活奔波的她，扎根，成长，茁壮。当她有一天，突然发现，自己再也不要为第二天的生活担心，再也不需要为下一个客人在何处而担忧的时候，她开始重新思考，如果以前是为了生活，那么以后我该为了什么？细细思量后，李文写下了这样的一段话发表在各大中英文媒体上面：

Juliana Lee Client Reviews
Thank you for handling the selling of our family home and the purchase of our new home. The price you negotiated for our new home was 2% below any offer we would have chanced to make
I think there are a lot of misconceptions of what makes good Realtor. IMO the Realtor should be judged on “core competencies” and “nice to have” qualities. Three qualities define core competency
of a good Realtor (in case of buying a house)
– Understands your needs
– Knows market
– Can get you the house you want
Juliana scores very highly on all three. She also does well on “nice to have” part – but that is almost irrelevant imo.
She specializes in Palo Alto and the surrounding San Francisco Bay Area market, is extremely successful, and pretty much knows everyone. What I learned is that agents want to work with other good agents. This may mean that, if you are represented by someone well known, you will often get a chance for a second bid or will have preference if bids are equal. The logic is that successful agents know what they are doing and have higher chance to close the transaction. In the competitive market, such as PA, with multiple offers on properties, the difference between being represented by someone top notch vs average can be the difference between getting or not getting the house you want. In other markets where competition is not strong – the difference is likely not as pronounced.
We are now about to close on a house in downtown Palo Alto which we never thought we could have bought. I think a huge part of us getting it was Juliana’s strategy and that people preferred to work with her.
I highly recommend her to anyone who wants RESULTS. And remember that real estate is a referral business. One only gets to the top if people keep referring you!
