"Recently met Jesse and his lending partner, Dao at an open house and right away, we knew we had to work with them! We engaged with Jesse through Dao and he set up time for us to meet via Google Meet right away.
Within 5 days of our first meeting, we were in contract to purchase our first home! Jesse's work ethic, grit, and reliability is what sets him above the rest. Jesse goes the extra mile to ensure we're well-informed with all possible outcomes.
With how crazy the Bay Area housing market is right now - you'll be able to secure a home with Jesse as your Realtor. He's made our dreams a reality!!
I will be recommending Jesse & Dao as a combo to anyone that's ready to buy their 1st, 2nd, or 100th home. Having a competent Realtor and Lender combo is the key to your success... or new home :)"

"My boyfriend and I first met Jesse at an open house and within two weeks, we were in contract to purchase our first home! With Jesse's hard work and timely manner, the whole process was a breeze from getting our preapproval letter, finding lenders, and getting into escrow.
As first time buyers, we had a lot of questions and Jesse was always knowledgable and quick to respond any time of the day. We appreciate his positive and friendly demeanor and transparency throughout the process as well as how well connected he was. He always knows a guy that knows a guy!
We couldn't have found a better agent to represent us and we're grateful to have met Jesse! I highly recommend him to anyone who's in the home buying market."

"My boyfriend and I had been going to open houses on our own for about 6 months without a realtor. We were referred to Jesse by a co-worker. For our first meetup with him, he was professional and organized. He sent us a list of potential showings and organized an itinerary for us. My boyfriend was working the weekend, so Jesse set up 5 private showings for us on Sunday night. During the tours, he helped us hone in on things that mattered to us. Only 3 days later, we put in an offer on a home and went into escrow.
This was our very first home purchase and with that came, a tremendous amount of stress and anxiety. He always laid out all the facts for us and never pressured us into anything. As first time home owners, we had about a billion questions for him. He always responded to texts within a couple hours. For long responses, he would lay out explanations in emails and always attached additional documents to help us gain more information to make the right decisions for our first home purchase.
I would highly recommend Jesse to anyone looking to purchase a new home, especially new homebuyers! We always felt like he was working in our best interest and represented us well."

"We are so lucky and grateful to have met Jesse! We met him by chance at an open house, and having him as our agent, he quickly caught on our style and knew exactly what kind of house we were looking for. Within a couple months of house hunting, he helped us close on our dream house! We didn't have the most competitive budget, but Jesse worked hard and was able to persuade the seller to choose us.
Jesse is honest, easy to get along with, very responsive, and genuinely is there for your best interest, compared to other agents we have met in the past. We've had such a positive experience working with him I've already recommended him to my friends! We're just so happy he helped us finally buy our first house!"

"Jesse is very kind, knowledgeable and skilled at what he does! Anyone who has an opportunity to work with him is extremely lucky and in good hands. Jesse has excellent customer service skills and always made me feel comfortable asking all questions that came to mind. I highly recommend working with Jesse and definitely keep him in mind when family or close friends are in need of an agent."

"We met Jesse when we were looking for our first home. After our initial conversation, we immediately knew we wanted him to be our agent. Since he knew we were first time home buyers, he provided us with all the information we needed to know. We had a lot of questions throughout the process and he was always available to help us out.
He has lots of connections and set us up with all the right people. He literally knows a person for everything. We were presented with multiple lender options and ended up getting an amazing rate.
He always gave us his honest opinion on all of the homes we saw. And because of him we are now first time homeowners. We would definitely be using him again for future purchases and would recommended him to anyone who's thinking of purchasing a home."
Alan C. | San Francisco
"Worked with Jesse on a purchase to relocate to and it has definitely been an experience... an extremely positive one at that. The real estate market is crazy and we had to act fast. Jesse was able to gather all of the necessary data on all of the properties I was interested in to provide objective advice and consultation on the purchase. Not only that, he helped me understand what I was really looking for in a new home as we looked at homes together week after week after week.
Being outbid multiple times or not having your offer is discouraging, but Jesse was always that positive light to keep me focused. When we found a home I was really excited for, he stepped up and not only got the deal accepted, but saved me from outbidding myself because I really wanted the property. He also has a great network lenders to work with. I initially went with someone I knew, but they didn't respond as prompt as I expected (2 months after initial request), so I asked Jesse for a recommendation and she really stepped up to the plate too in responding to my inquiries and informing me of what is happening with the loan step by step.
Overall 100% awesome experience and would definitely reach out to Jesse for future advice/service on real estate. :D"

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Jesse to purchase my first home. To begin with, he had me compile a list of houses that I wanted to see, rate each of them and describe the features I liked most. It was a simple task, but one that helped us concentrate and focus on the houses that I liked most. From that list, Jesse was able to discern my style and he was quick to pick up on what I was looking for.
Once we had a shortlist, he presented comparisons quickly, he reached out to the listing agent for additional information, and we hopped on the phone to discuss strategy and the best way to proceed. Some of these calls happened at odd hours but he was always available to chat, and always provided honest, professional, and objective advice - especially when it was needed most. The first time I was outbid, I was a little defeated. However, Jesse reminded me that it's easy to get caught up emotionally but at the end of the day, buying a house revolves around a process and at the end of that process, the reward is your dream home.
I had an incredibly positive experience with Jesse, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home."

"Jesse was so helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly during our home buying process. As a first time home owner, I really appreciated his open communication and guidance throughout the entire process, from start to finish. He's often quick text or phone call away with any questions or concerns."
Sarah M. | Daly City
"We first met Jesse at an open house on the coast and we were immediately drawn to his warm spirit and ability to break down new situations to relieve some of the stress and mystery out of entering into this wild market as a first time buyer.
Jesse is data driven and full of heart, his approach helps us focus on on what's truly important in our home in order to assign value and not get caught up in the rush when bidding gets wild! Because of his background in finance he was able to streamline our experience by introducing us to a handful of lenders in order to get a shockingly low rate even Jesse was jealous of 😉
Because of Jesse's hard work, passion for the process and ability to always have an open ear (even if asked multiple times...) we landed our dream house on the first offer property we submitted an offer on and also gained a life long friend. We simply couldn't recommend Jesse enough if you're in the market!"
Danyel L. | Emeryville
"Jesse is the reason I was able to find a home in the Peninsula in my price range! He guided me along the way and gave me great advice not only on real estate but also on financing. He is knowledgeable in so many areas which makes him not only a great agent but also a great mentor. He is super friendly and responded to my texts no matter what time of the day it was. I felt comfortable to discuss anything with him and I know I can trust his opinion/advice. If you are a buyer or a seller you won't regret working with Jesse!"
Sabreen M. | El Sobrante
"My husband and I met Jesse when we were looking for our first home. The market is insane in the Bay Area right now and we actually never thought getting a home would be possible in this climate. However Jesse and his team always encouraged us to not lose faith. Jesse was always open with us on communication, he researched and constantly would try to find houses that were not on the market yet, he tried to get as much information as he could with the listing agents, he never pushed us into an uncomfortable situation (which I highly appreciated) and most importantly was great with our kids. Our daughter loved him and he joked around with our son like he was an uncle. He really treated us like family. When we finally landed our first home, Jesse made the process very easy for us and again went above and beyond with working with the sewer lateral company and listing agent. We could not recommend Jesse and his team enough! If you are looking for an amazing agent that will go above and beyond the call of duty, look no further and contact Jesse right away!"
