Finding the right real estate agent sets the tone for your entire buying or selling experience. Whether you’re aiming to explore new homes in Sunnyvale or earn top dollar for your Palo Alto condo, working with someone you trust is of the utmost importance. A devoted, locally-based realtor will save you time and effort, have a well-connected network with access to the MLS, and possess a deep understanding of complex negotiations.
Spencer Hsu has been named one of the region’s top realtors in the Bay Area. In fact, he has been awarded with multiple distinctions and honors that further validate his commitment to his clients. If you’ve not yet worked with him before, here are 10 reasons to sell your home with Spencer Hsu.
Extensive knowledge of the Bay Area real estate market
Born and raised in San Jose, Spencer possesses an in-depth knowledge of the area. Surrounded by the rolling hills of Silicon Valley his entire life, he has an excellent understanding of the markets in places such as Fremont, Palo Alto, Mountain View, Redwood City, and beyond.
Why is this so important for sellers? Having someone as your realtor who has lived in the area their entire life is valuable for several reasons. With a lifelong knowledge of neighborhoods, pricing, and other trends, longtime residents do not have the same learning curve as those who’ve moved from out of the city or state. Spencer Hsu knows the ins and outs of every local community, and as a result, he can better answer questions from prospective buyers. He’s well-equipped to tackle make-or-break questions about local schools, restaurants, amenities, workplaces, and community events. This can put buyers at ease and help your home sell more quickly.
Ranked top 1% in the Bay Area
Recently, Spencer was honored to be ranked in the top 1% of all Bay Area Realtors. This is inclusive of all major area cities, including San Francisco. This title is not earned easily and takes years of dedication, sacrifice, and commitment to buyers and sellers.
As if this significant achievement wasn’t enough, he earned the ranking quicker than most other professionals have in past years. Since clients have grown to trust his expertise and advice, it is no surprise that he’s risen through the rankings at such an impressive pace.
57 homes sold annually
Spencer never lets valuable time go to waste. This assertion is easily backed by the impressive number of homes and transactions he completes each year. Annually, Spencer sells 57 homes around the Bay Area (almost five homes per month!), and last year, he helped 63 families buy or sell properties. In 2022, Spencer has worked with 50 families throughout the area so far — and the numbers keep climbing!
The volume of residential real estate that he sells is also a testament to how many individuals and families place their trust in him on a consistent basis. Year after year, Spencer receives word-of-mouth referrals from past clients who’ve been satisfied with his unparalleled level of customer service. Spencer’s current buyer to seller ratio is about 3:1.
