Kevin helped me buy my first home (a condo) in Seattle. Kevin is extremely knowledgeable about real estate, the Seattle landscape, and real estate for investing in general. As a person who likes to dive deep into these financial/investing details myself, I found Kevin to be the exactly the kind of realtor I needed to buy my first home. If there was anything he didn't know (which was not many things), he was very quick to find out and let me know as well. He is also extremely responsive via email / phone making the entire process very smooth and easy. Highly recommend.
Kevin provides the ideal experience when looking for your next home. He sent me new listings everyday, toured me around town according to my work schedule, and was always available by phone. Once I acquired my place, Kevin also offered to put me in touch with painters and contractors to install wood floors. My experience with Kevin far exceeded my expectations and I'm thrilled with my new home.
I worked with Kevin on purchasing my condo. As a first time home buyer I have always run into multiple questions, but Kevin never hesitated to answer my questions even if it was during the outside of his work hours. His respond time was so quick. Moreover, he always recommended great condos that fit my interest. He has earned my enough of my trust that even for the next condo purchase I am definitely going to work with Kevin.
I have to say that Kevin literally makes magic happen with his wit and professionalism. I was listing my place with a high over-asking price. We were warned by friends that our number was unrealistic, but Kevin worked with us on a practical action plan and did everything he could to market the place. He was so detail-oriented to the point that he would strategize the use of marketing remarks and listing photos. We eventually received multiple offers. Kevin carefully reviewed the offers and shared with us his insights – that included his prediction of the future market trends and what factors we should prioritize when reviewing offers with a wealth of information. He always had our target price in mind and negotiated with the buyers really hard, no wonder he is a certified negotiation expert! Kevin represented us in an honest and assertive manner. Every stage of negotiation was smartly planned. We eventually sold our place at price we are very happy with! Although I have a professional relationship with Kevin, I must say the experience is educational too. There lies the value of working with Kevin in the muddy waters of real estate.
Kevin Yuen represents us as sellers. I will definitely work with him again, and will recommend him without any hesitation. We had very high expectation on how much our place can be sold in this market. Kevin carefully planned the listing strategy and discussed with us his marketing plan. Listing with Kevin is not just putting photos of our property online. We have worked with other agents before but they were not as market-observant and analytical as Kevin. To me, Kevin looks at the big picture which eventually helped us get an appealing offer from many buyers. Kevin also has very good connections with vendors in the real estate industry. We got introduced to awesome teams for remodeling and staging work. He even helped coordinate everything to ensure we hit the market right on the planned schedule. Kevin answered all our questions promptly whenever we contacted him (as if he doesn't sleep at all or we were his only client). Working with Kevin was such a pleasant experience. Thank you again Kevin!
I was a first time home buyer who had no prior experience nor much knowledge into this space. Kevin was very helpful and knowledgeable when we started this journey. He set proper expectations up front and laid out clear mapping and winning strategies with me before entering this competitive market. While it took us a few tries before landing on a winning offer, it was never lack of speed and cleanliness of our proposals and professionalism on his end. Kevin is very organized and process oriented, but, never short of creativity when it comes to structuring offers. He's also very responsive to questions whenever they arise. Most of all, he is very transparent. By working with Kevin, you know you have a trusted adviser who delivers results along this journey to your next home. I appreciate Kevin's work, his ability to act fast and always thinking on his client's behalf. He's in for the long term instead of short term gain; persistently building trust with his clients. I will recommend Kevin to anyone who's interested in looking for their next home!
Kevin was able to work with us to put in an offer on our dream condo in just one day. He was very responsive to all of our emails, typically replying within one hour. We had a very short closing period (only two weeks), so his responsiveness was extremely helpful in making that process go smoothly. Also, thanks to Kevin's negotiation skills we were able to secure a condo in downtown Seattle on our very first offer. Working with Kevin was friction less.
Our experience with Kevin couldn't be better. Kevin was our real estate broker for buying a house in Seattle and he did so many things way beyond our expectations. Kevin was there to help us with any issue that came up, even if it was beyond his direct responsibility. Kevin's deep understanding of the local market on one hand and his ability to understand our needs on the other hand made the search process very efficient. When it got to the negotiation stage, Kevin's skills and enthusiasm made the whole difference - his great advise and very fast response is what got us the house we wanted.
I heartily recommend Kevin Yuen for anyone who hope to purchase a home in Seattle. He is knowledge, professional, detail-oriented. Not only Kevin assisted us to got the home we dreamed for, he also walked us through all the process and things to pay attention to during closing process. We will definitely work with him again in the future!
Absolutely incredible! Kevin doesn't seem to stop checking his emails. He is always available when we needed him. He is a local real estate market expert and an excellent negotiator. During inspection, he was able to get all our work items addressed! Thanks Kevin!
Kevin Yuen is an exceptional professional real estate agent. Kevin and his team are knowledgeable about targeted housing market, and holding "customer-centric" and ethics as their primary business philosophies. They are elegant about providing housing options for clients, they are efficient to walk through entire purchasing process with clients. It only took less than one month for us to settle most part of our purchase with them. If you are looking for a home to purchase, Kevin Yuen and his team is an optimal choice for you!
I can't express enough of how helpful and awesome Kevin was in helping us find our new home. He responded to our questions very quickly and educated us in the entire buying process. If he didn't have an answer, he knew where to get it. Not only that, he was able to get an answer quickly. He was very persistent in getting answers for us and kept us updated constantly. Kevin treated you like he was your only client (which I doubt he was) and it felt very personal in all the help he provided. We bought a newly constructed home and Kevin's knowledge about the quality of the builders was very helpful. He helped us learn about what to look out for and was very genuine in his opinions about the houses we looked at. He didn't pressure us to make quick decisions that we were uncomfortable with and really understood what we were looking for. My wife and I can't express how much we appreciated Kevin and all the hard work he put into helping us find our home. We can't imagine having anyone else in our corner to help us find a new home other than Kevin. He went beyond what we expected of anyone and we highly recommend him to anyone trying to find a new home.
If you really want an excellent experience I highly recommend Kevin. I am not sure you will find a better real estate professional in town! He will help you find exactly what you are looking for! He thinks of everything, even the small details! We visited 5 homes and he made me see the problems associated with 4 I had chosen. I was extremely impressed with his overall knowledge of the housing market and homes in general. He knew exactly what to look for and what to stay away from and pointed them out as we went from place to place! One thing you do not want is to regret a purchase! I will definitely consult with him on my next purchase in Seattle!
When you are house hunting for the first time, you definitely need a broker but what better than to find someone who partners with you in finding your first home or investment property. Kevin is that guy. He puts himself in the buyer's shoes and doesn't try to sell properties that are expensive or pay him more commission. He simply thinks about the best interest of the buyer. Another important aspect to purchasing a house for the first is to be aware of the intricacies of the laws involved, what kind of costs to look at, which areas to be in, selecting school districts, etc. Kevin is really knowledgeable about all such aspects and he shares valuable advice and contacts. Working with him and the folks he referred was a pleasure. Though there were some hiccups on the way due to a few things going amiss during financing, negotiations, etc. Kevin was always very patient and he ensured that I was getting the best deal that I could. Working with Kevin has definitely been a pleasure. He is polite, understanding but most importantly very smart and he will get you a good deal.
Kevin is knowledgeable, responsive, and does what it takes for his clients. I were especially pleased with Kevin's real estate services because he takes time to get to know you and understand your specific needs. Kevin is knowledgeable about Seattle neighborhoods and was always willing and able to locate information necessary to answer our questions. Kevin is an incredibly strategy-savvy buyer's agent, Kevin is an excellent real estate agent and I would recommend his services - as a buyer's or seller's agent - to anyone.
I found Kev on zillow and decided to go with him because of all the great reviews and I am so glad I did. He was quick to get back to us about all updates and were excellent communicators throughout the process. We relocated from Los Angeles, so we really appreciated his expert knowledge of the area. He was always available, very professional, and made us feel important. Thanks again Kev!
I was referred to Kevin by a co-worker. How lucky to have him! I needed to list my condo for rent due to a last minute job opportunity. I tried craigslist but it was such a headache dealing with all the calls and screening the tenants. After contacting Kevin, he came over the same day and had a list of clients ready in line to view. He was very professional, with all the documents, proof of funds, and credit ready to show me. I would definitely use Kevin’s services again and would recommend him to anyone.
Kevin is a very patient person who listens to our needs. We are glad that he is a great help when we look for homes in Bellevue. He is also extremely familiar with prices of home repairs - very important info when considering what to get for a home.
Kevin was always reachable and so knowledgeable of the area. We are so glad that we chose him when buying our home. I had quite a few requirements for the home I were looking for. Kevin listened to my wants and needs but grounded me in reality, which I am thankful for. He was excellent at communicating throughout the entire process and especially helpful at ensuring I remained calm during a stressful closing. He also knows a lot about the market, financing, even the legal aspects. I was very impressed with his knowledge. If I get the chance in the future I will certainly work with him again.
I had the pleasure of buying our first home with Kevin Yuen. I would highly recommend Kevin for anyone who is looking to buy a home in Washington. Kevin really understood the process of buying a home in this competitive housing market. Kevin was highly responsive throughout the transaction and did an excellent in the negotiation. Not only was I able to purchase the property below asking price, he was able to negotiate additional closing credits from the Seller. Kevin was genuine, helpful, and overall just a great pleasure to work with. Again, I would highly recommend Kevin for any real estate transactions.
