Grace is amazing. Throughout the process (home touring, offer negotiation, contingencies, loan, escrow, closing, etc.) she was always there for me providing support and services. She took ownership on any issues that had popped up and followed throughs with dedication and in timely fashion.

Grace without a doubt is a top notch real estate professional. In my experience working her for the past 11 months, i witnessed myself she would never say no to her clients and always be there for them. Plus, she always put herself in the client's shoes to analyze and approach purchases like buying it for her own. Mostly importantly, she would follow up extremely closely with the counterpart realtor and team up with loan agent, inspectors and escrow officer to make sure the contingencies are diligently monitored and the loan+inspections+escrow processes are all on track for a smooth yet huge success.

My experience in having Grace as my agent has far exceeded my expectations in all aspects. Througout the process of house hunting, making offer all the way till closing escrow, etc., Grace worked tirelessly with her Skills and High Competence, and she always put her client's interest as her top priority. In addition, she demonstrated how a real estate profession can deliver with Honesty, Integrity and Willingness to walk extra mile for her clients every single step till her client archived their goals.

Grace loves her job and care for her client comes naturally to her. Over last three months, Grace planned the sale meticulously and worked diligently as a true professional. A great communicator, Grace was the lifeline between the buyer’s agent, Title company, and me. Even the buyer’s agent thanked Grace for her astute dealing with buyer’s loan agent and HOA. May God bless her with good health so many more in the SF Bay Area can continue to benefit from her expertise and service in real estate.

It was our good fortune and great pleasure to have Grace helping us find a home in the Bay area. Thanks to Grace's professionalism, patience and persistance, she is helped us to find financing well above our existing pre-approval amount. We could not be more pleased with her performance, in a very competetive market, with cash investors and bidding wars. Greg & Terry B.

I have always been very happy with Grace's work. Grace is our family Realtor. This is the 2nd time Grace is helping my son getting a home. Grace knows the market very well, down to earth, handles complex situation very well. We are very thankful that Grace is representing us in a short sale as a buyer. If you need a darn good Realtor that you can trust, I highly recommend Grace!

Grace is an excellent agent. She works very hard to help me find my home and she is always on top of everything. She is very knowledgeable and responsive to my every email and every question. She would tell you all you need to know about houses and market. She even told me what I would expect after I buy the house. She still keeps in touch with me even after I bough my house. Her strong work ethic makes me feel that it's she buying her own house instead of mine. In a word, she's great and her service is awesome.

It was a wonderful pleasure to work with Grace. My situation was a long process almost 11 months and Grace stuck with me the whole time. Her personable nature was a solace in the crazy market I had to deal with. She was persistent when needing to be and I appreciate her help. Being a first time buyer was a little intimidating but she helped by being to the point. Thanks Grace!

Grace is very attentive, always follow up with me if I miss something that they need. She tells me the truth about the properties, if it is bad, she would not suggest me to buy, unlike some other agents, just trying to sell.

Extremely enthusiastic & hardworking person! We had a very specific things in our mind regarding the house we wanted & Grace patiently let us take our time to find the house that we felt right for us. Although she is a very busy agent, she was always there for us to show us houses when we wanted. I am happy to say that our dream of buying a house also became a dream of her at the moment we stared working with her. As a result, Grace understood all our requirements & was able to work very closely with us. Additionally, she is a very practical person and has advised/helped us on different areas of home buying. We are very happy with Grace. We highly recommend her.

Grace has been very active and energetic in her work. She was ready to help in the areas which did not fall under her direct responsibilities. At times she seems to be pushing people to do things quickly but in the end if I look back then it was all for good cause. It took 15 days for me from signing the contract to getting the keys. This was due to aggressive work from Grace. I would highly recommend her.

What we like about Grace as our agent to name a few is she executed our transaction in a very timely manner, she's very professional, reliable, flexible with her time as far as showing us properties, very efficient in answering or addressing our concerns or issues, made the house buying experience fun and enjoyable despite all the hurdles we had to go through, she's honest and a positive person. Overall we will recommend her to be your agent because you will not be disappointed. She worked very closely with us from start to finish. Also, don't take it personally when she says don't waste your time .... because in the end she will really save you so much time. It's hard to hit a bulls eye when you don't have a target. 2 thumbs up! Thank you very much Grace!

Grace was very professional and knowledgeable about the real estate market. She was able to communicate with us in Chinese which was one of the main reasons for choosing Grace. She answered all of our questions and made the buying process simple and easy. We have already recommended her to some of our friends and relatives who are interested in buying a new home. It was a pleasure having Grace as our agent.

There was a delay in filing the contract. She forgot to make us sign the disclosures when we met so we had to print and scan everything (one of us was on business trip in Quebec). She did not seem to get along with the seller agent and the tension was stressful for us. She forgot to update our bank on the signature date which created an issue.

The title company didn't inform us fully about delaying our closing date. When we asked our agent about the situation she wasn't getting any answers from the title company either. Which at times caused some uncomfortable situations/conversations between us and the agent. Besides that situation Grace was very eager and helpful to find a nice place for us to purchase. After we moved in we have a lot of problems with our property and Grace is being really helpful to follow up with us in regards to some of these issues.

She is people friendly and has great deal of respect for everyone around her. She is hard working and takes into account all the minute details involved in the process.

Grace Shih is the most knowledgeable realty agent that we have had the pleasure to work with. She is alert to market trends, staging, computer savy, always willing to help you at all times of the day or night. Her business awareness is apparent in all tasks from the beginning to the end of the sell and purchasing of a home. If it weren't for Grace our home on Thermal may have still been for sell waiting for a buyer and we are now just a few short days from being able to move into our new home. Grace is wonderful!

She's genuine, helpful, sincere and trustworthy. In my past experience with realtors this is the first working relationship that extended to a friendship. ZipRealty is very fortunate to have Grace and we would highly recommended to friends and family. Overall, we are very pleased with Grace's service and performance. I nominate her for any well deserved recognition and awards by ZipRealty.
