Sherilyn Tran – April 2018: I don't even know where to begin to thank Patrick for all the work he's put into helping us find a home in this crazy market. We've been searching for a little over a year. It felt like we looked at hundreds of homes, submitted several unsuccessful offers, and went for an emotional roller coaster ride through it all. We'd find a home, fall in love, get a verbal reassurance that things were looking good, then at the last minute, someone with a boatload of cash would come in and outbid us. It felt like the story of our life the past year. Patrick never gave up hope. He remained relentless in his search for us. He made sure we knew everything we were getting into. He gave us tips and tricks to make our offer stand out. He would keep on top of the selling agent constantly to make sure he aware of everything that was happening. He's extremely responsive. We never felt like we didn't know what was going on. We were new to the market a year ago, so we were timid in our offers but he remained patient with us. As the market got crazier, we got more aggressive. I think we felt comfortable because Patrick made us feel that way.
If you're looking to buy/sell and you want a knowledgeable, sincere, honest, and experienced agent, I highly recommend Patrick. I promise you won't regret the decision.
Sandra Wood - Sept 2017: Patrick (Okubo) coordinated renovations, and marketed effectively to sell the property above asking price, and closed without any hiccups. Flawless execution!
Nicole Duwaerts - July 2017: Keiko discovered a pearl for us in a nice neighborhood with all the amenities we wanted. Thank you very much for your help, Keiko, it was a pleasure to work with you. You were fast and attentive to details at the same time.
Ken Zahn - Jan 2017: Keiko and Patrick have been extremely helpful to us over the last 10 years and recently helped us sell our home in Fremont. They are extremely knowledgeable about East bay real estate (especially Fremont), trends and timing, and are very well connected to contractors and other real estate professionals in the area. They have a friendly and responsive team at Remax. I highly recommend them whether you are selling or buying a home in the area.
Susan Kimura - Dec 2016: I needed a realtor to help sell the home of my parents who had both passed away in the last 2 years. Keiko and Patrick came to look at the home I’d grown up in and that my parents had lived in for over 40 years. They made excellent suggestions on what repairs/upgrades would be worth the investment. They arranged to have all the contractors complete the work and marketed the home for 10 days. We were able to sell it above the asking price with a 21-day escrow that should close in the next few days. They have been very responsive to e-mails and phone calls and they are clearly experts in this area. I highly recommend both Patrick and Keiko due to my very positive experience with them.
Angela Zhao - Oct 2016: I am a loan agent, and partnered with Keiko on some of her transactions recently. She always put the clients' concerns on top, worked diligently to deliver her best. Keiko not only gained respect from her customers, but also from me, as a partner, she is a real professional, knowing everything she did, and offers the best customer service. During the transaction, I get timely response from her, even 11pm at night. It was a great pleasure working with her. Give her a try, you will feel the difference.
Sachi Akaba - Sept 2016: Keiko Okubo is an ultimate professional, through and through. Thirteen years ago, she sold our house in one week! From the beginning to the closing deal, she saw to all the details to make the sale successful. Most recently in April, Keiko closed the sale of my mother's house in the Monterey, California area. The house was sold within ten days of posting. From our initial contact, she guided my mother and myself to assure the sale was successful. I am amazed with her knowledge of the industry, thoroughness and integrity with which she conducts her business. Because of our unique situation of the distance, she made it easy for me to do what I needed to do to get the house ready, I appreciated her guidance and knowledge to all the details. Everything that needed to be done long-distance was made easy because of her diligence and most importantly thoughtfulness. All in all, it was a successful sale, which worked for all people concerned--sellers, buyer, and realtors. Keiko is impeccable of her duties and I unequivocally recommend her and her team to anyone who is looking to sell a house and needing a most dependable and reliable realtor. She is the best!!
Bernice Wong - July 2016: I have worked with Okubo team for over 2 years and found the team to be cooperative and effective with the transactions to close the purchases. They are highly organized, knowledgeable about their market place. Their process of selling a home has been easy and has made my life less stressful. All work has been in a timely manner and I would recommend their services to anyone who wants an agent to get the job done!
Caroline Duwaerts - April 2016: I worked with Keiko Okubo during my recent cross-country relocation to San Francisco. I HIGHLY recommend her, and am sure that when it is time for me to sell I will contact her again. She understood immediately what I was looking for in a condo as well as the "style" of condo I wanted. Unlike most realtors, she did NOT waste my time showing me condos that did not fit into my criteria or budget. I had a very short time frame to buy and move into my condo and Keiko, as well as her whole team, really worked hard to get me into my place on time - which they succeeded in doing. I am grateful to her for all the time and effort she put into my search for the perfect condo! If you are looking for a place to purchase in the San Francisco area - look no further - Keiko is as honest as they come and will work hard for you as well as with you!
Edward Wustenhoff - Feb 2016: Keiko helped us find a house in the best neighborhood in Fremont, in a fiercely competitive bid situation and showed immense integrity when certain aspects at the seller side went a little sideways. She is truly your representative and will make sure you get the best contract possible.
Shirley Nishikawa - Jan 2016: The first time I met Keiko was when my husband and I decided to move to a smaller house. She helped me sell our house in Fremont within 2 weeks, and with her help, we purchased a townhouse in Pleasanton. It was a smooth transition. After living in Pleasanton for 15 years, my husband passed away and I did not hesitate to call Keiko again to help me sell our house. She and Patrick worked diligently to get our house sold and within 2 weeks, we got a Buyer and sold the house within a timely manner. Keiko and her son Patrick are a strong team. They have a lot of knowledge and work experience in real estate and have very strong work ethic. Morning, noon, or night, and on the weekends, they continually kept me informed. I am so grateful for their hard work and effort to make the clients (me) their first priority.
