I chose Wayne to help me find a home because my son recommended him to me. From the moment I met him, I was impressed. He was friendly, patient and responsive to my needs - never made me feel that any of my questions/concerns were a bother to him. He gave me honest assessments when needed and I soon became a fan. He made the experience bearable. On a few occasions, he even anticipated my concerns before I had an opportunity to express them - he frankly took great care of me and I'm happy to say I now have a great home at a great price in an ideal location. I could not have asked for a better person to go on this journey with. Thanks, Wayne. Mercedes

Wayne was phenomenal in understanding the marketplace. He knew exactly the right amount to list for, and sold my condo quickly while others are still sitting available. His connections in the industry helped tremendously, especially in finding the right stager. The process was easy, stress free, and overall extremely professional. I have had the privilege of working with Wayne on both sides of a real estate transaction, and he is the local Bay Area expert that you should have on your team no matter what. Buyers and sellers, Wayne Cory is the man!

I have worked with Wayne over the past four years on a number of real estate transactions - buying my first bay area home, selling it, buying my first condo, selling it and now; buying my new long-term home (I really am settling down this time)! Each time I have worked with Wayne, he provided guidance, followed up on my multiple requests and was flexible with whatever schedule / price / accommodations / restrictions I had regarding property, time, finances or whatever the issue was that day. Wayne adds value to any real estate process as he is willing to "go to bat" for his clients and negotiate firmly and aggressively on their behalf. Further, he can provide insight into the market and what will likely work or not work on a given real estate purchase. Wayne has resources and solid working relationships for all phases of a transaction and can always point to someone that will be responsive and move quickly, firmly and at a high level of detail and professionalism. The best real estate professional I have worked with at any time in my life.

Mr Cory, as buyer's exclusive agent, helped us find, fund and finalized our first home. As the first time home buyer we followed many 'How to...' guides accessible online. We interviewed six realtor's out of which we decided to work with Mr. Cory for following highlights: Local Knowledge: We purchased our home in the East Bay Area. Mr Cory has plethora of local knowledge in the East Bay Area. The first day we went out to see house Mr Cory explained to us each item needed to fix and also the approximate cost of repairs if any. He was well prepared to explain us in detail the neighborhood characteristics along with close by amenities as if he had lived in the area we are looking for prospective house for years. The very first day of scouting houses my wife loved the house at corner lot. We felt so confident with him just after looking five houses we decided to make the offer the same very day. We knew time was of essence when it was sellers market. We couldn't delay to maker offer because otherwise competition would have escalated the bid ridiculously high to outwit us. We are glad we worked with Mr Cory because he made us feel the first home buying process breeze through. Professionalism: Suit and tie can give any Joe professional look. What distinguishes Mr Cory from the crowd is his cheerful, calm and kind demeanor. Punctuality is his another professional trademark. We scheduled several meeting with him post initial offer acceptance. Not once we remember him late for a second. He always manages his presence 10-15 minute ahead of scheduled time. Attention to Detail: Just like Sherlock Holmes scrutinizes a crime scene, Mr Cory scrutinized our deal far and beyond. He pointed out every minor details from small crack in the wall to possible violation of safety code and approximate cost to repair/cure such any cracks and code violations. After we close the property he even managed to obtain few quotes from different general contractors. His approximation were same as the contractors bid quotes. Trustworthiness: Can we trust him? Absolutely 100%. We worked with Mr Cory because on our first meeting with him he set our plan as per our criteria: location , price, amenities etc. Then he updated us via email MLS listing on a regular basis based on our criteria. His 10 years experience bridged the gap to feel us confident working with him. He mentioned at the very first meeting that at any point in time if we weren't 100% satisfied we could just fire him. No contract whatsoever. All other agents we interviewed wanted us to sign a contract before we even could get few lists. His utter belief that he could deliver 100% satisfaction to his client is quite bold in the industry but that very belief also cemented his Trustworthiness for us. Communication/Negotiations: As an ex-navy Mr Cory brings a lot of his field experience into the realm of real estate communication/Negotiations. He's very considerate and humble but also assertive. Often times negotiations happen at the background between realtors/brokers. However he kept us well informed and well prepared with different scenarios well ahead of time. One such scenario surfaced during our closing. The sellers wanted us to put 10% earnest money down instead of 3% which was already in the escrow. At that time we were reluctant to proceed with increased earnest money. However Mr Cory rescued us with his cunning wisdom. He planned to put an addendum stating that earnest money down will be increased to 10% however in the case of default by buyer's no more than 3% of the earnest money will be in jeopardy. The sellers accepted and we were able to proceed ahead with confidence. Responsiveness: Mr Cory is very tech savvy. He kept in touch with us constantly via phone, email, text and in person. This is one of his differential traits. Dedication: Mr Cory is highly passionate about his business. He's fully dedicated to serve, share and support every client he serves 100%

Wayne was outstanding in every way. I presented him with a complex situation of a sale and purchase that I hoped to make almost simultaneous. My goal was to close on purchase and sale at close to the same time, and be able to move out of the sold home and into the new home on the same day. And miraculously, through Wayne's attention to detail, negotiating skills, and proactive thinking he made it happen for me, handling both my sale and purchase. I am an attorney so I am sensitive to whether people are professional and whether they know the law involved in a transaction, and Wayne was top notch in this department also. And if this was not enough, he is an extremely personable, kind and calming person to work with. I highly recommend him to any one reading this review. You are in for outstanding service and a smooth ride in what is usually a stressful time.

Wayne has proven to be a valuable partner with our recent search and subsequent purchase of a home. Wayne assisted us all the way to the very end, ensuring we navigated successfully through a complicated process. We would use Wayne again and highly recommend him to other searching for a home in the bay area.

I cold called Zip and got Wayne. I told him we wanted an investment property for so much in specific cities. The next day,Wayne had us five leads that fit my criteria - his responsiveness and attention to our wants was very imressive. From there, we ultimately found and visited sites that worked within our budget and goals. With Wayne's professionalism and real estate expertise (in this case, especially with the ins and outs of foreclosures), my wife and I now own our second investment propery that will meet our investment goals. His responsiveness particularly stands out along with his knowledge of real estate transactions.

It is hard to identify areas where Wayne does not exhibit strengths. I would also like to add patience. We just closed a short sale after 10 months of negotiations. He negotiated on my behalf at every crucial juncture and did not waiver on his goal of getting the best property for me at the best price. He has left a lasting impression on me as an agent and a friend. I would highly recommend his services and am determined to return to him in the near future. At the price he negotiated my property, this may be more possible than I would have thought!

Wayne was fantastic is getting us into a home with our numerous constraints in an extremely challenging market. My partner is severely disabled and we got into a beautiful move-in ready rancher addressing our constraints. Wayne is the best agent that I have encountered over the years. I would wholeheartedly recommend Wayne for his trustworthiness, professionalism, and experience. Notably, Wayne had patience and advised me in a "soft sell" manner to make the right decisions in avoiding "projects". He saved me from myself as I was getting frustrated in finding something in a urgent predicament. I would look forward to working with Wayne again for my next home.

When I first noticed that Wayne had high ratings & great reviews, I wondered if he would be too busy/popular to attend to my house searching needs in a timely fashion. I抦 happy to report that he wasn抰! Wayne was magnificent throughout our house-buying journey. From our 1st contact it was clear that he responds timely (phone/email) and works with an admirable integrity. He is very knowledgeable, honest, took his time to understand our needs, and made us feel comfortable and even shared some laughs. Through the ups & downs of our house search, he was our guide and a huge advocate for us. He wasn抰 just a realtor; he was a huge source of support that was delivered in a friendly and respectful way. This was my 2nd home that I purchased and 1st time working with Wayne. He delivered a working relationship that was much different than my 1st realtor experience & so much better. Simply put, You Can Trust Wayne! Should I ever purchase another home, he will be the 1st person that I抣l call. I strongly recommend Wayne Cory.

Joseph Chen gave my wife and I superb customer service, loyalty, guidance and persistence while helping us purchase our first home this September. San Leandro, Hayward, Oakland, San Lorenzo, Alameda and Castro Valley. Wherever we wanted to looked at houses, Joseph was able to give us area specific details and information in which made our decision making process more efficient. He did this while considering our budget as well. Joseph's attention to detail is excellent! From looking at different houses and remembering locations to beginning the process of making an offer and do comp sets, Joseph doesn't miss a detail and will let you know if you do. Creating results and providing information, Joseph is constantly making things happen. Communication is key and there was never a time when Joseph didn't make himself available, even if it was late at night when my wife and I where home from work. Joseph would always make time to talk with us, answer questions and he responded to emails promptly. We can trust Joseph's advice and that made a difference in our comfort levels. We knew we were in good hands. His enthusiasm and dedication to his clients is amazing. Joseph really cared about what we wanted and understood the things each of us where interested in during our almost year long search. Once we found the perfect fit, Joseph wouldn't give up until we got results. Always calling to keep us informed and emailing important documents, Joseph would even negotiate behind the scenes looking out for our best interest and trying to saving us money! I can't say enough good things about Wayne Cory and Joseph Chen's help and performance during our home search. I recommend Joseph Chen as a Realtor to anyone interested in purchasing a home. First time buyer, investor? Looking at a foreclosure, regular sale, flip sale or short sale, Joseph knows his stuff inside and out and won't rest until you fine what your looking for. I will recommend him to friends and family. 5 stars, two thumbs up!

They also listened to my needs and fought for my benefits, for example passing the cost of repairing pest damage to the seller. The agents remained calm and professional even though the loan process turned out to be chaotic. I would recommend the agents to anyone. Thanks again guys.

Wayne Cory went beyond expectations even before I officially listed the property. Once I emptied the house and before I had a contractor begin work, Wayne walked through the house and made suggestions about various things I had initially intended to do. He told me to save my money and NOT replace all the interior doors, etc. Also, even though construction dragged out a year, Wayne sent me updates on houses listed and sold. That information was invaluable in deciding on a listing price for my Mom's house. I have already recommended him to a relative whose mother just passed away. I would recommend Wayne to anyone who wanted someone willing to go the extra steps to sell their home even in this difficult economy. Not only did Wayne get an initial offer from his first open house but also got a full-price back-up offer during the closing process. This was invaluable and saved me money too.

We purchased two houses with Wayne's help. The First was in March 2008 and the second on Jan. 30, 2009. We would identify the house we wanted to look at from your web site then ask Cory to show them to us. The system worked well and we enjoyed getting money back!

Wayne was a fantastic agent for us. We were first time home buyers, and he took the time to explain everything to us and always returned our calls promptly. He went out of his way to help us with any questions or concerns we had, right away. He was recommended to us by a colleague, who said Wayne was very professional, always on top of everything,and an excellent representative. We completely agree, and would definitely recommend Wayne to our friends.

I bought this in the worst economic times this country has seen since the great depression. Wayne was extremely professional and skillful in pulling this purchase off in light of these dificult times. My next home will be bought with the help of Wayne!

As a first time home buyer who has worked in the real estate business for several years, I knew what it was I wanted in an agent. Also being a very pregnant, car-less woman it was an understatement to say I had some special needs and required extra consideration. Joseph surpassed my expectations and met all of our needs. Our family is so happy in our new home and Joseph is a huge part of that. Thank you Joseph.

Wayne did excellent work. He listened to all our concerns and went the extra mile to get us every little thing we wanted. In addition, he went out of his way to find out the law and protect us in every situation. He exceeded our expectations. We will definetly refer him to our friends and family or use him again in the future.

Every step of the way I knew that Wayne placed my interests first. He showed me countless properties, answered endless questions and found unique solutions to perplexing issues. On the day of closing not only did he come to the signing with me, he identified several errors that saved me so much money I received a rebate from escrow. Think he was done? Hardly, the night before the title was to record we had an earthquake here in the bay area. Early the next morning Wayne went to my new home to inspect it before the title was recorded and called me to tell me everything was good. That kind of service is nearly impossible to find and that is why Wayne Cory is the realtor I will use and recommend always.

he didn't do anything that i hadn't already done myself. it was convenient for him to fax TIC docs for me, but he didn't do any research that i couldn't do on my own. he did not provide much insight into the TIC process, and i generally feel that he was not much of an advocate for me.

Wayne was extremely professional and extremely responsive. Buying an older home, there were a number of questions about the dwelling and Wayne was able to find the answers quickly regardless if it was contacting the selling agent, inspectors, or general "how will we fix this" questions. We were completely satisfied with Wayne's service and we highly recommend him.

Wayne is a personal friend and he if it had not been for him I am not sure we would have ever found a house. We had some special circumstances and Wayne remained commited to finding a house that was right for us. He kept potential new homes in front of us through email and contacted us about homes that looked especially good. Through the process he looked after our interest completely. He was great in explaining documentation and in pointing out various aspects of our house that we should pay attention to. We really cannot say enough good about Zip or Wayne Cory. Thank you so much for going the extra mile.

I'm not sure if this is an agent's responsibility, but there was a lot of confusion as I went into closing. This might have been the fault of the mortgage company, but I'm not sure of the agent's role in assisting with this.

Wayne was absolutely the most wonderful agent we could have ever asked for. He was very friendly and easy to get ahold of. He knew the kind of property we were looking for and helped us find the perfect home. Wayne was knowledgeable and honest when he answered our questions. I would never buy or sell another home without his help. I have nothing but great things to say about our entire experience with Wayne and Zip Realty.

Wayne Cory at ZipRealty worked with me during 2005 to find a first-time home purchase. Wayne is motivated, diligent, organized, prompt, dependable, highly capable and a great negotiator. Wayne and I established an easy rapport from the beginning. As a result, we were able to frankly discuss the pros and cons of properties that we viewed without any hesitation to be honest and forthright. Home buying can be a long and stressful experience. Wayne understood the amount of time and the trials involved and routinely provided insight to the market, the offer process, what the seller's situation and motivation might be, and accordingly helped me to understand the big picture. Wayne can work thru problems quickly and efficiently; and always kept me informed as to the process and issues that revolved around the home purchase. He established and maintained great communication with my entire team (i.e. mortgage lender, escrow officer, etc.), and always made himself available for questions and concerns as they arose. I would highly recommend Wayne as a real estate agent.
