The Right Real Estate Agent

People don't talk about it a lot. But finding the right real estate agent can be the difference between a happy, stress-free home buying or selling experience, and an unhappy, stressful experience.

First, you'll want an agent ready and able to make a full-time commitment to you. I can and will do that.

Second, you'll want an agent with the experience needed to know the local neighborhoods, schools, market conditions, ordinances, etc. With my years of experience in the local market - I have the expertise and track record of success you need.

Third, you'll want an agent who embraces the convenience of technology without losing the personal touch. You'll love the resources available on my website and the e-mail alerts that I send, but these will never replace the time I spend with you, serving as your personal guide through this exciting process.

Selling Philosophy:

• As a long time resident and family member of San Francisco, Burlingame and Bay areas, a former engineer and a former Shell dealer who has been professionally licensed for more than twenty years, I have the experience and knowledge to help your buying, selling or renting process a successful and pleasant transaction.

• It is an honor and a great pleasure for me, as broker, Realtor, and Prudential Top Producer and Diamond Club Awardee, to be able to serve many different clientele and to successfully find a pleasant and comfortable home that meets my clients’ goals or to find a replacement home after selling theirs at the highest possible price.


" I re
commend Thiat, who looks out fully for his clients’ best interests....."-John and Annabelle

"Mr. Thiat Liang represented the buyer and seller in my real estate transaction (Peninsula 2012).  A hard spot to be in but Mr. Liang was for my part (buyer) fair, thorough and customer-oriented (which by the way is hard to come by these days)."
-Stefania Michelle
"A very pleasant gentleman who'd go out of his way to help as much as he could.
Brutally honest about the condition of everything.
He is there to help you and it's not just about renting you a certain property.
Thiat is a reliable man and i would highly recommend his services to anyone."
-Marwa E. 8-2-14 Yelp

“We signed all our paperwork today 7/14/15 with Thiat's excellent assistance at the escrow office and explained all the items in great detail.
We are done and just waiting for our keys in about a week.  
So far, it took almost a year to close because of we purchased a new built.
Excellent service from start to the end.  6 stars if yelp can let me do that.”

Timothy C. 7-14-2015 Yelp

“We met Thiat by visiting one of his open house randomly.  Have a very nice conversations with him but we didn't give too much of though that we will work with him.  
Fast forward almost 2 months, after spoke with some friends and getting their referred agents (3 of them), all of them are either too busy and or show no interest to provide any good assistance, we decided to check with Thiat.  Turns out, Thiat is not only the best jn terms of market knowledge/trend analysis and representing our best interest but also being very patient.  
I think there is a lot of good realtors out there (who wouldn't... given the current bay area market, every potential customer can easily translated to ten of thousand of dollars)... But having the virtue of being patient with his clients is GOLDEN.
At the end, I don't care an agent brag about how much $$$ he/she can closed in a year.  I only care about the house that will close by my own money.  Thiat totally understood that and have a great respect.
YES, after a few months of hunting together in the peninsular area/south bay area.  We decided to get a very nice townhome in the San Mateo area with Thiat's help.”
