Vanguard Properties agent Jeffrey Plocher colluded with a selling agent to drive up the price of a property in essence by creating a phantom bidding situation. That's not the worst of it. What really ended up costing me was that Jeffrey

I chose to use Chris Lim as my agent earlier this year based on several glowing recommendations from friends/colleagues and I was not disappointed.

I was a first time homeowner in San Francisco -- he spent time to explain my options and ins/outs of the market -- his knowledge was impressive and explained in a manner that was easy to understand. He listened to what I wanted and showed me options that aligned with my wants. His real strength was evident during the negotiation process. I ended up buying new construction and he used the market situation to negotiate a really attractive deal for me -- at the time of close I felt like I got a great deal. In subsequent discussions with other homeowners in my building I now appreciate just how much better a deal I got than those who used other agents.

He also has a really good pulse on the market -- which is really important when things are changing so quickly. I got a phone call from him on a Tuesday -- telling me to lock my loan ASAP -- because he thought mortgage companies may start to require 20% down. I locked that day, and within 2 weeks, mortgage companies started requiring 20% down. Because I had locked when he advised me, I was able to close with 10% down, while several others I knew who were looking at the same time missed their window of opportunity.

Finally, he referred me to a top notch mortgage broker -- which was key during my April 2008 closing -- who had no problems getting my mortgage approved when many others were being turned away.

All in all, I cannot recommend Chris enough. He is very savvy, shrewd, a tough negotiator, and all-around nice guy. I have referred several friends to him since my close in April 2008 and they have had similar experiences.
