    Joseph took his time to show us several properties and understood what we were looking for. Joseph also made us feel like he had our best interests in mind.

    This is my second time with Joe as our realtor. The first time he worked tirelessly to help my husband and I find the right home with our very tight budget and specific needs. This time was for helping me find my handicapped brother a condo. Again, he was up against budget and very specific needs. He never got exasperated with us. He must have showed us at least 9 places before we found something suitable. When something came up that looked appealing but turned out not to be a good buy for us, he didn't hesitate to let us know. As a negotiator he is able to intuit what kinds of moves to make, when to push back and when not to. He made it so the closing costs didn't eat up our budget. We were not personal friends before we met him but I can't help but feel we are now. His attitude and dedication to finding the right place for people - not just a job - made me like him as a friend. You would be wise lucky to choose him as your agent. I have worked with agents who just seemed to be casting about but Joe has a real knack for understanding the changing tides of the housing market in different areas. Joe personable, inquisitive and a very shrewd but fair negotiator.

    Joseph is very experienced and professional. He used his due diligence to secure a good deal and negotiated the financing terms. The first loan was denied and he could still help win the second chance from listing agent. We finally got the house we want and thank you again for your good work!

    Absolutely horrible, unprofessional, hard to get a hold of. He was rude, disheartening, and made me want to work with another company. Wayne Cory totally redeemed your business.

    Joseph's contribution was beyond excellence. He was always there for us. He was able to accomodate any request from us which shows that he was willing to go above and beyond his duties to help us out. We will remember him every day in our new house. We cant thank him enough for all the help that he has done for us and the pain that he took. Joseph is a very friendly, down-to-earth and always willing to go extra mile for his customers.

    Joseph goes above and beyond his responsibilites as an agent. His level of dedication is at such a high level, regardless of the size of the deal. Even after the close, he continues to maintain a relationship by helping me with any home related issue. I recommend him to all of my friends and family.

    Joseph kept no secrets from me. This first of all was the most important thing. I trusted Joseph with information I was unsure about. His professional was top quality he made me feel like a very important and treated my search for homes as if I was looking for million dollar homes. I felt very important. Joseph refered me to a broker that was outstanding and fast responsive. Joseph hours very always flexible. I called him to look at this home between 7:00 and 8:00am Saturday morning and he asked me if I could be ready in 30 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised as his lets go get it response. I was expecting a delay or bla bla but no not Joseph he was Jonny on the spot. That kind of quality is hard to find now a days and to know Zip realty provides such service is now a household name in realty for me. My daughter wants to buy a house soon both her and her husbands are veterans and the said the will not have no other agent but Joseph.

    For first time home buyers, my husband and I needed a lot of guidance in the real estate market. It was very comforting to know that Joseph Chen was working for us to ensure we received a fair and equitable deal by following up on each and every process from the loan to the interaction with the builder.

    I really felt that Joseph went above and beyond what he needed to do for me. I purchased my property on the opposite Coast from where I live, Jospeh worked so hard to ensure I was kept informed of everything that was happening, he stayed on top of the banks and title co, he worked with the time difference and my schedule and I really think, if he wasn't my realtor, I would have walked away from the purchase.
