Sellers

We looked at a few realtors from an online search and eventually went with Wayne and Joseph based on a very high personal recommendation. We are very happy we did. Everything worked well. They are very honest, professional (but frank), hardworking, extremely knowledgeable, and have great contacts. We received multiple offers that were much higher than we expected in this market.

I bought my first home in the Nob Hill area in San Francisco with Wayne and Joseph and can’t be any happier or satisfied with the amount of detail and attention they’ve given to this real estate transaction, from start to finish. I have steadfast confidence in their knowledge, experience and expertise.

J Roca

Buyer

I worked with Wayne in 2017 to buy my home in West Oakland. He was excellent, and I 100% recommend working with him again. This was my first experience purchasing a home, and I felt that Wayne was patient and supportive throughout the entire process. Wayne connected me to an excellent mortgage advisor, which helped the process move quickly. I also feel that Wayne truly understood my needs, and he helped me find a home that I love.

In my case, our initial offer resulted in negotiations and a bidding war. I trusted Wayne to strategically respond to counter-offers, and I appreciated his point of view about when to push and when to wait. Obviously we won, and we somehow managed to stay within budget. Overall, I am hugely appreciative of Wayne's deep experience with the real estate industry.

Happy Buyer

Wayne was wonderful to work with, and he helped us get THE home for us in a competitive Oakland real estate market. He is a great communicator; he gives his opinion and shares his experienced viewpoint; and he is a voice of reason in what is often an emotional process. Wayne was recommended to us by a friend, and we were extremely satisfied from beginning to end. We recommend Wayne wholeheartedly!

Seller Penthouse Cathedral Building

Wayne Cory represented my wife and me in the sale of our downtown Oakland apartment (the top unit in the Cathedral Building at the intersection of Broadway and Telegraph). Wayne provided guidance on needed repairs in preparing the apartment for sale, arranged for staging, assisted with disclosure and paperwork issues, and helped set the asking price. The promotional materials were professionally done and made our place look great. He handled the negotiations and gave timely advice throughout the transaction. Much appreciated -- especially since we reside outside the Bay Area.

Brian Baird

Buyer

Wayne was an incredible realtor. He was patient and understanding as I "kicked tires", offered helpful input when it was requested but never preached. And, when I found the place I wanted, he was relentless in collaboration with the listing agent to get the house for a minimal price over asking. I got the first house I offered on - and that was very unusual in 2021! On top of all this, Wayne recommended a great mortgage broker, and continued to help with things like home warranty after the completion. I have recommended Wayne to several friends, and will continue to do so!

Olivia Grace

Buyer

Wayne is very easy to work with. We communicated with him by email, text and phone. DocuSign was used when we needed to sign something. It was easy and allowed us both to sign without having to schedule in-person time.

We utilized Wayne's skills twice. The first was to buy our home. We communicated the approximate size of house or condo and our budget and he let us know when properties became available that we might be interested in. He scheduled opportunities to see homes. We provided feedback on our likes and dislikes during and after the viewing and Wayne made notes and continued looking for other choices. There was no pressure to buy. We could tell that Wayne was interested in finding the right location for our family.

When we were interested in making an offer, we discussed with Wayne the price listed and what a reasonable offer would look like to a seller. In one case there were multiple offers already in, but Wayne encouraged us to go ahead and include ours as well. We were out bid on that home but the final location of our home turned out to be a better fit for us.

The second time we worked with Wayne was on an undeveloped parcel of land. The land purchase took months to complete due to it being part of a trust with multiple family parties working with the sellers agent. Wayne sent papers to sign as they came in and updated us on the status of the purchase after our offer was accepted. We celebrated when everything was complete. He went out of his way to make this super easy for us.

We would definitely recommend Wayne to anyone who is looking to find a home, land or an investment property.

What makes up a good real estate portfolio? Good properties bought at the right time with the right price and a good realtor on your team who puts the deal together. Joseph and Wayne are your dream team to execute on your vision. I've worked with them for purchasing and selling multiple properties, and they have always exceeded my expectation even under the most challenging market conditions. Their professionalism and willingness to go extra mile have made these transitions flawless.

Firt Time Buyer

We were lucky to have Wayne Cory & Joseph Chen guiding us through the process of purchasing our first home. I would absolutely recommend both of them for their knowledge in all aspects of buying and selling your first/next home.

As first time home owners, Wayne and Joe were great at helping us discover the type of home we wanted without being pushy, while also walking us through the process patiently. From listing to signing, these gentlemen really know their stuff when it comes to providing valuable knowledge and expertise, top notch client service, and dedication to close the deal.

K Miura

BEST agent EVER.

This is my 2nd house using Joseph as my agent. He gives 120% of his effort to find the right house for my family. He has an awesome team that helps with my loan processing to finding the perfect house. He is on my side step by step until closing and even after closing of the house. He kept reminding me to make appointments to do rekey, change codes to the garage door, and make sure his customers are safe and sound in their new property. I cannot appreciate enough how responsible and hard working Joseph puts I to his job. Will recommend Joseph to any of my friends and family.

This is going to read like I'm being paid... seriously, I'm not; I'm just THAT happy with his service. We found Wayne by just searching his reviews - check them out on whatever site you want; he's the best. There's a reason he has those reviews. We had a view of what we wanted - areas, requirements, etc., and our budget. Wayne helped us 100% of the way, even as we changed our minds mid-flight..."

Wayne's work ethic is not seen in other real estate agents and brokers. He will not hesitate to go the extra mile for you--it is part of who he is. Also, one of Wayne's greatest assets is he tells it as it is. No sugar! He will tell you the good, the bad, and the ugly so we can decide for ourselves. His honesty and integrity are so refreshing because they are not often seen. I highly recommend Wayne Cory for all your real estate needs."

It seemed costly and risky at that time, but the investment was well worth it. I'm beyond happy with the final sold price, which was even higher than my original asking price. What more could I ask for? Thanks again for your help and professionalism! They are excellent!!!!!!!! Thank you & Thank you very much, Wayne and Joseph. All the best for both of you guys."

" I would like to share with you about my fully satisfaction and excesses expectation received from your Coldwell Banker residential brokerage, Mr. Joseph Chen. It was a great successful and wonderful experience while I was working with Joseph. I hope we can work together again in the near future. Joseph not only provided his professional brokerage and consulting services, but also the personal financial care about offering and post closing cares. I had no worries and headache while I was working with Joseph. I entirely trusted Joseph throughout the whole transaction. I will definitely refer Joseph to my families and friends who purchase and/or sell properties in the bay area where Joseph is able to reach. Personally, Joseph is the best and always my first brokerage choice. Congratulation for you to have Joseph. "

"We've worked with Wayne to purchased our very first home with him. We had to finance through FHA, and with their strict guidelines, we had difficulty finding a home that would be approved and fit our budget. Wayne was very meticulous and patient in showing us the properties -- going through our pros and cons options for each parcel. He was very frank and did not try to sell us dreams. He was candid in stating what we could afford and would take us to those properties instead of showing us too many properties. Wayne does his homework before coming out. We liked him enough to represent us again for our 2nd home, which was an investment property. We had worked with another agent but did not receive any honest opinions on making a good rental. We were able to find an investment home and were not pressured at all in what to buy. He would take off his realtor's hat and inform us of the pros/cons of the property as he sees it. It was a pleasure working with him, and I'd recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home."
