To Whom It May Concern:
We are very fortunate to have Sophia Lai to represent us in selling our 5000 sq ft custom home on the Mission Hills.
Because of our relationship with the business community and heavy community involvement in Fremont, we have known many realtors in the area. We chose Sophia due to her extreme professionalism, knowledge of the real estate market and unique marketing strategy.

Dear Sophia –
It has been a while since we sold our house in Fremont and moved to Los Altos. I want to let you know that you were the best agent we ever worked with. At the time of selling the house, I was busy growing the engineering consulting firm I founded and raising two teenagers. My husband was an executive of a high-tech firm. We could not have done it without you.
You not only took care of what a typical agent did including appraisals, advertising, putting up signs, having open house, and closing escrow, you were there for us for much more. You set up appointments and worked with all the various contractors including interior decorator, gardener, plumber, carpenter, termite inspector, building inspector etc., with our input of course, to get the house ready for sale.
Your professionalism and exceptional services were greatly appreciated, especially by busy home owners like us. Selling house was one of the life changing experiences for us and for anyone. It can be very hectic and stressful. You made this transition in our life easy that we will never forget.
It would be my great pleasure if anyone requires a reference check on you.

To Whom It May Concern:
Sophia Lai receives my hearty recommendation as my real estate broker. Since 1993, Sophia has helped me to obtain two highly sought-after homes in the Fremont Mission San Jose area as well as my current mansion in Pleasanton.
I am indebted to Sophia’s kindness, hard work, ability to listen and understand her client’s needs. With years of experience, Sophia has provided me with her incredible insight regarding real estate business. She also has often assisted and advised me in making intelligent decisions in time-pressured situations.
Sophia enjoy spending time with her family and is dedicated to her clients. I have had the privilege of working with Sophia and I found that her reliability and integrity are beyond expectation. Her impeccable reputation has gained her great respect in the real-estate circle.
I recommend my real estate broker and my friend, Sophia Lai, to you without reservation. I am confident that she will serve you well.
To Whom it may concern:
I had a very satisfying house hunting experience with Sophia Lai.
She was recommended to me by a close friend in March 2009, when I was just starting to look for a rental property.
She paid a lot of attention to my requirements up front, and provided a quick market summary and an appropriate listing to prepare me for the next step. Then she would take me on a road show to see appropriate properties.
Her comprehensive knowledge, ranging from real estate market, school districts, to rental market, coupled with her honesty and integrity, makes my house hunting a productive and pleasant experience.
Once I've identified a subject property, she works diligently and was very proactive and attentive to the details from bidding, closing, renovation, all the way to the rental arrangement.
I would recommend her to anyone looking for a rental property or just looking for a solid and trust-worthy broker.

To whom it may concern:
"Sophia is our friend for many years. Back in 2012, we already considered selling our house in Mission Area and moving into a smaller one since our children left for college. During these two years, Sophia had been giving us good ideas and advice as a friend until we were ready to buy and sell.
It is extremely stressful when it comes to buying and selling a home. In addition, my husband has to travel a lot for business and both our elderly parents in Asia need a lot of support at the same time. Facing endless trips overseas and many important decisions to be made, we both felt mentally and physically drained. Sophia, acting as our agent for the sale of the house, had truly relieved us in many ways. I must thank her in particular for the very efficient cleaners and contractors she introduced to us.
The sale was not all smooth at the beginning. However, Sophia really showed her determination to do her job well. She took many extra miles to take care of the difficult situations and made sure both the buyers and sellers have a fair deal. We truly appreciate her diligence and honesty. She found us very pleasant buyers. She accompanied us till the very closing day of escrow. We are grateful that she is such a responsible and hardworking agent."

Bought a home for approximately 3 Million in Fremont Mission Hills. 2015
Sophia Lai was recommended by a very good friend.
My family started to search for home in the Dec.
Due to the high demand and our requirement of high quality and in a very good school district, we did not bid successfully in the beginning.
Due to Sophia 's determination and hard work and using her inside connection of the super competitive real estate Market she was able to find us this beautiful luxury home at a very reasonable price in Feb 2015.
Since we were in need of time constrain, Sophia worked very hard to complete all the necessary inspections and repair estimates and had been to the city of Fremont few times to do the necessary research in different aspect. She was very efficient and was able to close the escrow and moved us in our new home in a timely manner.
She was with us all the way to get the furniture , misc utility and internet connections, make sure the repair of plumbing, electrical , termite, roof are done correctly and even me to select a good gardener.
She told us , this is only the initial face, and she will be with us forever
and we are welcome to call her at any time, including anything with the house and also our kids' schools and after school's activities .
We just moved from out of town and to find such a helpful and knowledgeable realtors is so valuable to us.
We are very happy with her service and will recommend Sophia to anyone at any time.

Sophia knows our target area (Fremont Mission San Jose) inside out. She took good care of us and she is so capable of helping us out in all expects of choosing and buying a house! We would not be able to get our dream house with a wonderful price. She walked extra miles for our mortgage application, house inspection and repairs. I really appreciate her service.

Sophia was always there and was good about getting back in touch with me either through email or over the phone. Sophia will go out of her way to find the answer for me if she could not answer it right away. Overall the process went quickly. Sophia always provides a great service in a timely manner. All my transactions handled by Sophia went very smoothly.
I consider Sophia as my personal friend and believe that is the greatest compliment.

- Highly likely to recommendSold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $1525k in Mission Hills, Fremont, CA.
Going thru all the house prep and obstacle clearance was not always pleasant and smooth, but with her resourcefully and well connected network, we quickly resolved the issues.
She is knowledgeable, experience, well connected, detail oriented. We left things to her and she delivered.
I am glad to team up with Sophia. I accomplished the goal of moving to the school district of my choice for my kids, and getting top dollar for the sale plus the house that we targeted for the move.
Yes, I would use her again if we ever have Real Estate needs for this area in the future, both sale and purchase.
