"Vivian was very flexible"
We were skeptical when we started the search for our first home. Linda and I were expecting our first child in May, but Vivian assured us we'd be able to find a home before the baby arrives. Vivian was very flexible when working with our schedules, was considerate of our needs, and always made herself available. On top of her admirable work ethic, she brings a keen eye when evaluating homes, a strong grasp of real estate market dynamics, and diligently kept communication channels clear between all parties involved throughout the transaction. Buying a home can be a daunting process, but we're glad we had Vivian in our corner and look forward to working with her again.

"Vivian has been reliable, dependable, and very accurate"
My wife and I have put Vivian through the ringer these last three years, having looked at over a hundred houses in San Francisco before finding the perfect house for us which we recently purchased in the Lakeshore District, with her representing us. And that’s in addition to having her list, show, and choose tenants for the rental properties we also own. Through it all, Vivian has been reliable, dependable, and very accurate in her market analysis and conditions in the unpredictable world of San Francisco real estate. She is easy to approach, flexible, knowledgeable and promptly returns phone calls, emails and texts and always goes to bat for us. I can’t say enough good things about Vivian and she will be our real estate agent of choice for as long as we are here and a good friend for life. Plus, our kid loves her--an added bonus. Thanks Vivian!

"Just wanted to thank Vivian for another stellar job"
Just wanted to thank Vivian for another stellar job. She found a property in the only location I really ever wanted to live. Couple highlights that I want to share include the offer letter she sent, and the discussions we had on the loan piece. The offer letter was probably what got the property awarded to me. I believe the smallest details there, broke any ties that I had with other bidders. From there I needed to show them the money. So on the loan piece we had to go through quite a few different options, but the communication line stayed open and we made it happen. If there was any breakdown in communication in this phase, I would have lost the property. But everything worked out! Thanks again Vivian! Not only have you sold a property for me in the past, you have found me a place as well. Keep up the great work!!

Vivian Lee is a dream to work with. She is awesome, razor sharp, she knows what to do, she knows how to make things happen with ease and amazing grace.

"Vivian was extremely knowledgeable and fun to work with!"
Vivian was extremely knowledgeable and fun to work with! She's a go getter and will go out of her way to view houses on the buyer's behalf. We ended up purchasing a home in SF in a couple of months - so obviously she was very effective. Bay Area House Hunters, hit her up! Thanks!

"Vivian is truly a great real estate professional"
Vivian is truly a great real estate professional. She is always available, extremely knowledgable and consistently goes above and beyond. She is honest, hard working and capable. When things got a little stressful with the sale of my home she was there to reassure me and calm my nerves. She also helped find good contractors that were able to complete work on a very tight timeline. This is the second transaction I've been represented by Vivian and I am totally satisfied. I highly recommend her for any real estate needs you have in the Bay Area

"Vivian worked very hard for us"
My wife and I couldn’t have had a better realtor than Vivian. She helped us find a lender, and guided us through the process in a very friendly and professional manner. Vivian worked very hard for us and kept us informed every step of the way. She pays close attention to details and her expansive knowledge was indispensable to us as first time home buyers. Vivian was available to us 24-7 and was very prompt in responding to any questions we had. Thanks Vivian, you are awesome!!

"Vivian is excellent across the board"
Vivian is excellent across the board. She is very responsive, resourceful, caring, smart, and has forged a great relationship with each of my clients. Her knowledge of the San Francisco multi-unit market was invaluable in helping us step by step through the marketing process. She was always professional and compassionate, especially when dealing with challenging tenants. Unlike some realtors I've dealt with, Vivian is more personable. She was always accessible, and answers and returns all phone calls promptly. As we went through the listing process, she gave us great advice on how to strategically list under the market price. She guided us in what needed to be done to showcase the flats for sale in the best light, and at the same time minimizing the costs of cosmetic renovations. She sold the flats for more than $500,000 above the expected asking price. My clients congratulated me, but the real credit is due to Vivian's extraordinary performance. I would refer my clients to Vivian Lee again for buying and selling, and recommend her to anyone who wants to have the right visionary who will help guide you through the demanding purchase/sales process.

"She’s an outstanding real estate professional"
We've worked with a number of agents in the Bay Area and have a select few that we continue to work with, including Vivian. One of the key qualities (of many) that stands out in working with Vivian is her attentiveness to her client's needs. In working with Vivian from the onset, she has built a trusting rapport with us that involves listening carefully to our needs and having a greater understanding of our goals. Whether its transaction related, or leasing a rental property, she provides a clear and organized framework and executes above expectations. She's an outstanding real estate professional and a pleasure to work with. We look forward to continuing our work with her.

"Best resource and knowledgeable professional, Vivian Lee"
After discovering a very stressful problem with a rental property I owned in San Francisco, living out of the city, I turned to the best resource I knew, a realtor, and luckily I found a knowledgeable professional, Vivian Lee. She was able to provide me with referrals to the professionals I needed to deal with the problem. Over six months and through my heart surgery Vivian periodically would check in to see if there was anything else she could do to assist me. It was a "God send". Unfortunately, the problem could not be resolved and I finally decided to sell the house. Yes, I listed it with the best agent I knew, Vivian Lee. She walked me through the mound of papers surrounding a real estate transaction and a 1031 exchange. She was always available for questions and able to provide quick responses. She is a five star agent.
