Sophia is the professional you want on your side. She will work hard to find a home that meets your criteria, is always responsive, and a masterful negotiator.
We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed working with Sophia Niu. Sophia was our listing agent for our family home of about 30 years. Not only did she give us great advice on what to do to prepare for the sale, she had several great referrals for painters, plumbers, stagers and landscaper contractors. Her marketing strategy was spot on – everyone who needed to see the listing, did! We were also so impressed with how well she priced our house. Through her hard work, we were able to receive a full priced offer in just 12 days on the market! While it was emotional for us to part with the house, we were glad that Sophia was there to help make the entire process smooth and seemingly effortless.
Sophia took me on a tour of a beautiful Alameda property that had just come onto the market. It was definitely a property that fit the “wish list” she and I had discussed. Sophia has been a longtime resident of Alameda and I very much appreciate her familiarity with the island. She is very driven and professional, ready to help you find the perfect home, yet has a genuinely personable and friendly demeanor. Sophia has been readily available to answer any and all my questions and has returned calls/emails immediately. I look forward to continuing to work with Sophia and highly recommend anyone looking for a home in the local area (and beyond!) to reach out to her!
I would not hesitate to hire Sophia for my listing agent, or for that matter to work with her in any regard. Not only is she a hard worker, she is a pleasure to be with. She is one of those born learners, who thrives when challenged. Knowing you have an agent who truly cares for you and your family’s needs, while expertly negotiating, and happily analyzing documents, is a three for three win.
Sophia helped us find our new home in Alameda, CA. From start to finish she was the friend, advisor and expert we could rely on. She not only helped us with her local knowledge (which is par excellence) but also helped execute all the complex steps involved in completing the whole process once our offer was accepted. We highly recommend Sophia as your realtor. She is super good in evaluating homes that fit your parameters, fine tune offer, proactively complete the steps all the way through. She brings positive energy that helped us keep our eyes on the big picture without getting lost. Thank you Sophia!!!! Couldn’t have done it without you.
Sophia was our buying agent for the home we purchased in 2015. I can’t speak highly enough about my experiences with Sophia. She knew a lot about the area and helped us close on our dream home in a very competitive market. I’ve heard stories of people attempting to by homes with no luck for years in this neighborhood. Sophia got us into our home in 2 months, without a single hiccup! She was always available, always on top of what came next and had such great relationships with every person we had to do business with. The purchase experience with Sophia was so wonderful. She even stocked our new fridge with our favorite beer when we went to go pick up our keys after escrow closed. She really went above and beyond.
Sophia is amazing! We were so lucky to have such a tireless advocate on our side. An East Bay native, Sophia knows a ton about the area, from the best neighborhoods to helping calculate commute times and navigate public schools (and anything she doesn’t know, she’ll use her extensive network and great detective skills to find out!). She was always proactive and available, with an eye for detail and a great instinct on what we wanted. Thanks to Sophia, it took us no time to find — and buy! — our dream house at a very fair price in a very competitive market. Sophia is wonderful, and any buyer would be lucky to have her!
A lucky star was shining down on us the day our mortgage loan officer sent Sophia Niu our way. We couldn’t have asked for a more dedicated, responsive, caring, and truly committed real estate agent to guide us through our purchase. From the moment I met her, I was impressed by her expertise and her dedication — she really cares about her clients as people and will go the extra mile to get the job done. She is also an excellent communicator, which anyone going through the home-buying or selling process will appreciate. Not only is she a stellar real estate professional, but she is also a genuinely nice person whom we loved spending time with. I give Sophia my highest recommendation — anyone would be lucky to work with her.
Sophia was very helpful and responsive to assisting my family in finding our first home. She was able to guide us through the buying process. She stayed on top of the documents and inspections that needed to be provided through the buying process. She will let you know her opinion if you are getting the value for the money.
Sophia was a consummate professional. Truly the whole package. She works hard for her clients and went above and beyond for us. We also had town of our best friends use their agency and we’re super pleased as well. We highly recommend using Sophia Nui as your agent.
Sophia was incredible throughout every step of the house-hunting (and eventually house-buying) process. She stuck with us for 3 years, never pushing for a sale until we had found the perfect house. It was clear throughout the process that she always wanted what was best for our family, not her bottom line.
