Buyer Testimonials

Garrett is a 5-Star Agent on Zillow,Trulia, & Yelp!
My clients are my favorite part of my job. Here’s what some of my past clients – and new friends – have to say about me.

Things were stacked up against us, when Garrett pulled through for us. My husband and I had recently relocated from the east coast, we were first time home buyers and we were looking for a home during the holiday season, which made it seemingly impossible to find a home.

Garrett was so patient  and understanding with us. He took the time to get to know us, what our needs were and what we were ultimately looking for—which as first time home buyers wasn’t always the most obvious. You hear stories from friends and family who’ve dealt with other agents who were so passive they felt like they had to do all the work or had agents that were so overbearing and “pushy”. Garrett is certainly non of the above. He was there for us every step of the way, from pulling listings, getting us to see the house, arranging for all documentation and inspections, pushing for a quick close…he did it all with great professionalism! —Did I mention he knows what he’s doing? He was on point with every house we were looking at.

What Garrett does is so much more than just selling/buying real estate. He does it with enthusiasm and professionalism, and I would definitely highly recommend his services!

Garrett is the BEST!

Garrett helped us look at a variety of different homes before we ultimately made our decision. Because of his invaluable advice and expertise in the process of real estate buying and selling, his experience and knowledge in architecture and design, and his desire to work with  us and help, we found the home for us! Garrett always had an answer anytime we had a question about the process, or any concerns. He was always on top of everything and seemed to always be a few steps ahead the sellers and even escrow! We were always surprised how organized and smooth the whole process went.

When Garrett says “my clients are relationships,” he’s not kidding. From our first conversation I knew he was the agent for me. Apart from his unsurpassed professional skills, he’s a warm and kind human being. I was living out of state, struggling with a house sale in another state (and the  absolute nightmare going on there), and buying in a third, but I never had to worry about the purchase in So Cal—Garrett even kept in touch with the agents selling my house, injecting much-needed knowledge and a calm demeanor. He was always available for questions and explanations, and encouragement when the stress was accumulating. When I thought I’d hit another wall, he opened a door. I can’t say enough good things or thank him enough!

Garrett was very knowledgeable about the market and was instrumental in not only quickly finding a place but also in securing it as there was significant interest from other parties. After it went into escrow, Garrett was very helpful when it came to the inspections, as he has a design background  and is very detail oriented. He was also particularly helpful in negotiating with the developer and getting things fixed as needed so that it was move in ready. In one instance where the developer was unable to fix an issue to my liking, Garrett went above and beyond and fixed it himself. I found Garrett to be professional and very responsive throughout the process. One value that I liked in Garrett was that he values the relationship more than closing the deal and as such he makes sure you are truly happy with your purchase. I’ve been extremely happy with my purchase and I highly recommend Garrett as an agent.

Garrett helped us over the course of two years to find right house for us. He is very knowledgeable about the san gabriel valley neighborhoods where we were looking. We were searching for the right home for a longer than average period, and went through multiple offers before being accepted.  Garrett was with us the whole way, and took care of all the paperwork, inspections, and the normal things that seem daunting to a homebuyer and made them painless. Since we also had to sell our home to move into the new one, we listed with Garrett on that transaction and again he took great care of us through the home showings, photography, videography, listing, the offers, and the sale process. He was always reachable and responsive whenever we had questions, and made sure we got a great deal, recommending contractors, quick fixes, etc.

We really can’t say enough about the tremendous job he did, and the patience he had with us. We have two young children and he was always working around our schedules and needs (such as not being able to be as flexible with our open house and appointment showing schedules) He also used his interior design background to help recommend furnishings for our new house to help us settle in quickly. He was such a frequent guest at our house that our daughter still calls him “uncle garrett” and asks us when he would visit. I’m fairly sure that when we moved, for the that first week she thought we were living in his house because he was always there in our new house whenever she saw it.

“Garrett can be described simply with one word: AMAZING! Garrett is a pleasure to work with. He possess everything you should look for in a realtor: he’s patient, responsive, and places his client’s interests above anything else.

“The road to buying a home is fraught with numerous pitfalls and obstacles. Garrett was with us every step of the way, answering all our questions and addressing each of our concerns. He always arrived promptly for showings and if he was going to be late, he would always let us know. What impressed me the most about Garrett was his ability to “bat for us” when it came with dealing with the seller and their agent.

“I wholeheartedly recommend Garrett’s services. He has made us a client for life!”

I can not say enough good things about Garrett, we would not have our new home if it wasn’t for him. He went above and beyond to help us find a lender, negotiate for us and push the bank to approve our loan when things went south. As first time buyers we were totally clueless but he patiently  worked with us and answered all of our questions. He was always available and was extremely quick with his responses. He is on top of everything and very knowledgeable plus fun to work with!! I would recommend Garrett to anyone who is looking for a realtor that truly cares and has an excellent work ethic.

I was pretty overwhelmed when I first began house hunting, but Garrett made the entire experience easy and simple. He made sure to work around my insane work schedule, and even helped arrange the closing date around my days off! I’m so happy with my new home and overwhelmingly grateful for his  assistance. Thanks again!

Garrett helped me purchase a home and was very helpful in guiding me through the process. He was very efficient in coordinating showings and working with sellers, lenders, and escrow to make sure that everything moved along smoothly and allayed what stress I had about the process.

When looking at  properties, it quickly became clear that he is very knowledgeable about buildings, materials, city regulations, communities in the area, etc. He does a great job of checking in and is extremely responsive to any questions you may have along the way.

I have a lot of confidence in his abilities as a trustworthy agent that gets things done and would definitely recommend him. Thanks Garrett!

My husband and I recently worked with Garrett. He was helpful, available and most of all amazing. As a nightshift nurse Garrett would take my phone calls late at night and always text back. He made the home buying process easy and guided us through every step. He is very knowledgeable in the area  and easy to work with. We highly recommend working with Garrett. Home buying can be very stressful and Garrett made everything as easy as possible.

Since Garrett did a such amazing job helping me and my family looking for a rental property, we went back to him recently when we were ready to purchase a house. Again he went above and beyond to help us. I always thought being a first time home owner, purchasing a house would be a painful thing, but he made the whole process so easy and we never really had to worry about anything. He was always on top of everything, explaining to us what to expect and what’s the next steps were. He made buying a home so easy and stress free. I highly recommend him as an agent!

I knew the moment I talked to Garrett on the phone that he’s the one. He’s my third and best realtor. 🙂 And I opened escrow with him after only two offers. With my previous realtors, I was doing my own home search and almost lost hope because all the offers were being rejected. He is very professional, prompt, personable, pleasant.

He really knows what he’s doing. He has given his 100% to me even though he has other clients. He takes time to explain everything in detail and gives his realistic opinions even regarding design and possible future plans. I just really enjoyed the times we spent together searching for my first home. And during the viewing, I never felt rushed compared to my two previous agents.

He takes notes when something needs to be addressed with the seller’s agent, and gets back to me right away, as soon as he finds out the answer to my question. He’s really on top of things. Very organized, which helped a first time home buyer like me to keep calm and be well-informed. I highly recommend Garrett to anyone. I’m thankful and blessed that I closed escrow with him recently. Very smooth process from beginning to end. I got my keys and now I have a place to call home.

Garrett Chan truly is an amazing agent who really cares about helping his clients! Not only is he truly knowledgeable, but if there is a question that he cannot answer, he always seeks out the appropriate answer. Garrett helped me purchase this replacement property as well as helped me sell my previous home. He was able to help me get the best photography, the nicest flyers, and even had aerial, twilight, and daytime photography and video all put up on a special property website! He proves himself to be a great listing agent as well as buyers agent!

Garrett showed me over 30 homes and then after I narrowed down the list, scheduled a second showing for my husband and I, to match my husband’s busy schedule. He found us an efficient, trustworthy lender, an interior designer of high caliber, and an experienced contractor to do the work for us. The transaction was smooth and easy, as he coordinated with escrow and lender for us, even tracking me down around town with documents to sign.

You won’t regret choosing Garrett Chan as your realtor. We certainly don’t!

We are lucky to have Garrett as our real estate agent. As first time home buyer, we knew nothing to begin with. Despite our low budget, Garrett always answered all the questions we had with patience and in timely fashion. In fact, I don’t remember how many times Garrett replied my late night emails that were full of random questions within a few minutes just so I could go to bed peacefully.

The thing about him I like the most is he really listens to his clients. Unlike other agents who tend to push the sell, Garrett makes sure I find the home I really love. He would also advise on remodeling with his expertise on interior design. This is very helpful because I would get better idea on how much work and money I need to spend on home improvements after buying the house.

Overall, we are very happy with Garrett’s service. Don’t let his youthful appearance fool you. He is as professional as any other older guys can be. Give him a try if you are looking for an real estate agent. We are glad we did.

Garrett helped me buy a dream house! He is always available and goes above and beyond time and time again. He not only helped us win the house but helped me find contractors and designers to make some necessary repairs and improvements.

Even on days when Garrett had personal plans, if an opportunity came up he rescheduled to meet our needs. This happened on two separate occasions.

“Garrett is a phenomenal buyer’s agent who was highly effective and efficient throughout the entire process of purchasing our home. He is very knowledgeable and upfront about home prices and worked within our budget. As a second time homeowner, I can safely say that his level of expertise and professionalism is unparalleled.

“He showed us over a dozen homes and had an amazingly fast response rate to any questions or concerns. He even helped us find a lender that expedited our loan! Within two months of hiring him as our agent we are now moving into our dream home. I highly recommend Garrett to anyone looking to purchase a home!”

Garrett works smart, works hard and gets it done. He found our dream home, won the bidding war, found a bank, pushed them hard for an amazing rate and drove the process with all his strength until it was across the finish line.

I called him with a million questions like “should we do xyz…” And he would always respond yes and had already called them three hours ago with results on the way.

Work with Garrett. He’s a champ.

Not to be cliche, but Garrett Chan really cares about his clients and serving them well.

He is never pushy, always willing to listen, and seeks out helpful information to anticipate questions. Garrett Chan guided us not only through finding a home, but also to the type of properties and locations that would be best for us. I wholeheartedly recommend Garrett Chan to anyone who is looking for a home. You will be very impressed and enjoy working with him. You’ll also end up with just the right place to call “home.” We did.

Garrett was an excellent buyer’s agent. He was very responsive and efficient throughout the whole process. This was my first time purchasing a home. He showed dozens of homes and worked within budget and helped me find what I was looking for. He worked with my busy full-time schedule to meet later or whenever I needed. Additionally he helped me deal with any concerns that a first time buyer has and helped me solve any issues. He also helped me decide on some furniture (he has experience in interior design). Garrett puts a lot of time and effort to help you find what you want so I highly recommend him He has a strong work ethic and genuinely cares.

We are so thankful to have met Garrett! Garrett is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the process. He was our buyer side agent.

He showed us so many homes and worked within our budget. He even offered viewing a couple locations we wouldn’t typically go for, helping us mold what we truly wanted. He worked with our busy schedules to discuss anything as late as 10PM and on weekends! He went over the top and helped us solve some issues we came across regarding our loan. Garrett puts too much time and effort to help you find what you want. He is realistic and genuine. He has extremely strong work ethics and really cares.

I highly recommend Garrett for any real estate needs. I guarantee we will be using him as our agent in the future. We appreciate everything he has done for us and you will too.
