Jeff and Eva were a pleasure to work with. They helped us sell our SF condo and were wonderful advisors. We had some work related to plumbing in the building that would limit the use of our kitchen for over a month. Jeff and Eva advised us to put the condo on the market despite this and we were glad to follow their advice. We trusted them completely throughout the process. They were knowledgable and very communicative. We would not hesitate to work with them again for a sale/purchase in the ares they geographies they specialize in. We felt lucky that we were referred to them and we will be recommending them to our friends and family.— Joseph Smart
If I could give a 10-star rating for the Chen team of Jeff and Eva I would! We were very lucky to have them help us every step of the way for our home purchase. From the initial introductory meeting to final close, they were very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and extremely responsive. They were particularly good about helping us find a home that fit our needs. Their experience in home renovations and understanding the current market was instrumental in finding the right home and making a winning offer for us. They can be trusted completely to navigate us through the highs and lows of this competitive market. They not only care abou...— Yoshi and Yeonu
Jeff and Eva is an amazing team, a true definition of a power couple. They were very considerate and helped us through the entire process, making sure we understood the pros and cons of every place we considered. As first time home buyers, we felt very safe with Jeff and Eva especially because they have superb communication and cared deeply about what we wanted.— Florence
Jeff and Eva helped me purchase my 1st property in my life. Jeff is extremely professional and Eva is super thoughtful. Everyone knows that it's difficult to win the bidding war in the bay area, I failed twice before finally landing on my home. Jeff and Eva are patient and never push me on anything I don't want. And they give me guidance along the way making the entire process smooth and not painful. If you are looking for an agent in the bay area, I highly recommend Jeff and Eva!— K
It was wonderful working with Jeff and Eva! They helped us find and sign on our new house within just 1.5 weeks after meeting them - faster than we ever could have imagined. They were incredibly responsive, thoughtful, and detail-oriented throughout our housing search process. They are such warm and kind people, and never pressured us to make any decisions, rather guiding us and advising us along the way. When it came time to put in our offer (with multiple other bidders), they were very strategic about the pricing and timing, which likely made all the difference in getting our house. They have also been so generous with sharing their contacts (of w...— Elizabeth Qin
Jeff & Eva are the reason we got the home we live in now! Can't say enough about how amazing it was to work with them. They were so patient with answering our 1000s of questions, worked around our schedule for multiple home viewings, and were always available. When we were planning to submit offer, they never pushed us to submit a higher offer, but shared insights from their vast experience how things might play out and they were spot on. The day of offer they worked tirelessly with seller's realtor to keep finding the latest updates, keeping us in the loop. Post closing they helped us find contractors in such a busy market to help with renovations....— Vibhor Bharadwaj
I couldn't have picked a better partner in my real estate adventures than The Chen Team! As a first-time homebuyer looking for an investment property, Jeff and Eva were incredibly patient and thorough in walking me through the full process. The wealth of resources they provided, whether officially through Compass such as automated market analyses or verbally while walking through open houses, was invaluable; I particularly appreciated their price estimates and design ideas for potential renovations, which stemmed from their personal experience as investors and house flipping. They were very approachable and responsive, never taking more than a few h...— Hanbing Wu
Jeff and Eva were wonderful to work with and instrumental in helping my wife and I purchase our first home. We have worked with various realtors during our 14-month process and have found Jeff and Eva to be the absolute best to work with. They share a wealth of real-estate knowledge between them and strike a most effective balance between professionalism and personable skills. They were happy to educate us each step of the way while tailoring any industry jargon to explain to us laymen. We felt that we were in good and trusting hands throughout the entire process and have since referred our close friends and family to them. A key advantage that we f...— Ken Jang
Professional, knowledgeable and a great partner in our house hunting search!— Brian Li
The Chen Team provided excellent service to me in my house search. Highly professional and experienced, Jeff and Eva were able to find good deals and make a deal happen even in a very tough market, offered superb real estate advice and education, and always acted in my best interests.

I will use their service again in the future and absolutely recommend The Chen Team to anyone who needs competent, honest, and knowledgeable real estate agents.— Alex M.
I felt Jeff and Eva did a great job of understanding what my home purchase goals were, and provided really valuable insight into the market. Additionally as a first time home buyer, I especially appreciated how they left no stone unturned in helping me learn and understand more about the homebuying process. Hope I'll be able to work with them again in the future!— Neiman Tan
Jeff and Eva knocked it out of the park for me. They were patient, trustworthy, quick to respond and helped me navigate through this hot market in Hillsborough. I ended up with the modern home I was looking for, and got a great deal! They did such a good job, I had them list and sell my previous home, which ended up selling for more than I had anticipated. Working with them has honestly been a wonderful experience and I never felt pressured on any decision. Eva and Jeff are down to earth and honest people that I'd recommend to anyone buying or selling in Hillsborough.— Kevin Busque
Jeff and Eva were great to work with. We had a lot of questions given that we were dealing with a probate sale and they were super helpful in walking us through everything. They made a stressful situation a lot better with their knowledge and their quick responses to questions. They also had the nicest gift basket to welcome us into our new home which was super thoughtful and kind. Overall I would use them again if we ever need to move again!— Meghan Grech
The Chen team was phenomenal to work with. They were the reason the seller accepted our offer. The seller was so impressed with their professionalism that they wanted to work with us further on the deal. We found our forever home and couldn’t be happier! I would absolutely recommend Eva and Jeff to anyone looking for a home in the Bay Area.— Debbie Lawson
Kind and warm like your family! And very professional and informative. They gives all kinds of viewing suggestions and concerns. Not pushy but acts so quickly! So reliable for rookie homebuyers!— Kimi
When we interviewed a number of agents to list our property in San Carlos, we were looking for a realtor that would provide full service real estate services. Jeff & Eva came highly recommended, and that’s exactly what we experienced - top concierge level service! From finding a place to live, to recommending movers, remodeling suggestions, scheduling cleaners, painters, contractors, landscapers, stagers, picking out tiles with us, even purchasing smoke alarms and replacing light bulbs, they did it all! Even the upfront cost to pay for all the remodeling and staging costs was handled by The Chen Team and Compass. We were impressed by their stagers a...— Pooja Shetty

Jeff and Eva make an unbelievably amazing team! I had been working with a couple of first-time homebuyers and after they expanded their search out of my area, I needed to find referral agents in Peninsula/South Bay to take great care of them. After speaking with a few agents, I decided to introduce my buyers to Jeff and Eva as they seemed the most knowledgeable and diligent. I had extremely high expectations of them to begin with, but somehow they managed to exceed them all. The timeline of getting my buyers into contract just shows how quickly and efficiently they work as a team: Tuesday - I introduced them to my buyers via email Wednesday - We h...— Michaela T.
Eva Chen all the way. She's fabulous. Sent her a friend of mine and she crushed it. She has awesome energy, she is incredibly patient, and operates with total professionalism. She was also excellent to work with, providing me with updates along the way. I highly, highly recommend her.— Lauren H.
As a Real Estate agent, when I refer a client or friend to another agent, I expect them to receive the same level of service that I give all of my clients. With The Chen Team, that is exactly the level of service and professionalism that I and my client received. My clients were extremely happy with how the Chens kept me in the loop about the status of my clients transaction.— Matt B.
Jeff and Eva were able to assist me with selling my house in San Francisco, and purchasing my new home in Pacifica. They worked with me on a good selling price, as well as a good offer price. They were thorough and meticulous to ensure all questions and concerns were addressed. They were responsive throughout the process and kept me updated every step of the way. I wouldn't hesitate to refer them to anyone for real estate needs.— Kenneth K.
When my wife suggested we should make it our goal to buy a house this year (2020 of all years!), there were a lot of questions and uncertainties for how to make that happen. We had heard enough horror stories from friends about their experience during non-pandemic times that we knew this was going to be quite the chore; especially as first time homebuyers. Jeff and Eva quickly put those concerns to rest, as they clearly understood that process can be just as important as results -both of which they excelled at. For each stage of the home buying process, Jeff and Eva mapped out the steps ahead, explained what each involved, and expanded with more inf...— Michael & Karen S.
Jeff and Eva Chen were a great pleasure to work with and helped me buy my first home in Daly City. They spent a lot of time helping me find the right home and were very patient with me. They always looked out for me when they felt the home wasn't a great fit and I never felt pressured into buying a home. They are a kind and honest couple that I got along well with even outside of buying a home. I would definitely choose them again in the future and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.— Malvin Y.
Eva was referred to us by a friend and I would now refer her to anyone looking for a home! It was a great pleasure to work with her. Throughout our home-buying process, she was personable, knowledgeable, patient and honest. She became someone we could truly trust and count on, which is rare to find! We are grateful for her help to find our first home!— MJ & Peter
Jeff and Eva were really great. We really enjoyed working with them. They were really familiar with the Belmont area and had great real estate expertise. Eva was a pleasure to work with she was proactive and very responsive. Jeff's major in architecture and understanding of construction was very helpful in helping us with offers. I highly recommend this group.— Gary & Yong
Jeff and Eva helped us to sell our condo in the South Bay. At the time the market conditions were poor, and we were having a lot of trouble. Jeff and Eva provided us a plan for the next listing and we were able to sell shortly after the new listing was posted. Throughout the process they were always available to answer any questions and provide advice. Would definitely work with them again.— Ryan Yee
Jeff and Eva are the best agents anyone could hope to find! We were so lucky to have them by our side! We spoke with around 5+ agents before meeting with Jeff and Eva, and they really are a cut above the rest. They worked tirelessly to get us what we wanted while not being pushy at all (I am averse to pushy people because it feels like they have something to sell you or have a selfish motive). It was our (wife and I) first time buying a home and we had no idea what we were doing, but Jeff and Eva patiently explained everything and answered every question we had. If they didn't have the answer to something, they would always find out for us and come...— Shang Sit
First time Realestate investor and home owner. Jeff got me everything I asked for during negotiations (and I asked for a lot). Also, post close they continue to support me with referrals to quality contractors. These two really go above and beyond for you.— ezra dibble
Jeff and Eva were amazing partners to have in our first home purchasing experience! The things that stood out to us most about them are their responsiveness, attention to detail, and relationships. On responsiveness, they were always prompt in answering questions we have any time of the day and would set up tour schedules immediately upon request, even accompany us in the midst of the worst rain storm the bay area has seen in years. On attention to detail, we learned so much about what to look for in the mountains of documents thanks to the items they would highlight to us in their review. In some of the older homes we toured together, they would al...— Lisa Wang
Jeff and Eva were wonderful to work with and very helpful in walking me through the first-time home buying experience. They were very knowledgeable and professional.

Jeff & Ava are an amazing team. They were super responsive since the first minute and very knowledgeable about the market and process. They guided us through the process and we were able to confidently put together an offer and close within a few days. Their knowledge, communication, attention to details and overall focus on their clients’ needs make them a pleasure to work with and a great partner. We cannot recommend them enough— G P
I might not have the time to check out your "You Live" when received but I save it until I have a chance to glance through it and read the information/sections that I find I should be aware of. Just today I picked up your "You Live" and took two different stories for friends who ski and one who writes a journal so she can also add something that she has gratitude/and is grateful for. Thank you for taking the time to add information and sometimes joy to our lives.— Alley Derenzi
