  • Winnie helped me buy a home

      Overall, I had a great experience with Winnie. She was very responsive and personable. She helped me get set up with a lender and introduced me to her contractors. She helped me find the house I wanted and handled all negotiations in my favor. I am very pleased with Winnie and would look for her again when I am ready to sell!

    • We have the pleasure of having Winnie and her team to represent us in selling our home. She was enthusiastic in getting things done, and knowledgeable about the selling process and the area. She has work long and hard with us to get the house ready for sales. Her staging of the house looked fantastic and the potential buyers were clearly impressed. Her pricing strategy and prep work created a deep sense of value and buzz among buyers on the house. All their work made a quick sales. The houses were only opened for two weeks and got multiple bids that were almost over 100K of the asking price, with very favorable terms like removing all contingencies. Overall going with Winnie was the best decision we have made.

    • 5 stars! Buying my first home was overwhelming.. I was ready to give up on my search, but then I found Winnie to help me through the process. Winnie was great at finding listings that fit my criteria within my budget. She really listened to my want list and each time we scheduled home visits, she was extremely organized and prepared. When I was indecisive, Winnie offered her professional opinion with pros and cons of each choice, and was extremely patient and optimistic throughout the whole process. Both Winnie and Willis have extensive knowledge on home maintenance and reconstruction, so they helped break down the home inspection reports into layman terms. I appreciated their honesty about whether or not findings were concerning. Winnie and Willis were a dream to work with - do not hesitate to contact Equity West!

    • My husband and I worked with Winnie Tam to find our first home. She has been very helpful throughout the whole purchasing process, from helping us understand the different house layouts and neighborhoods to the many suggestions on banks and mortgage loans. She was very thorough about what we wanted for our home, sending us weekly updates on various house's that were on the market. When we didn't make it to the open house schedule, she was very flexible with our schedule, and Winnie would meet us at the house's on our availability. When we walked through the houses, Winnie helped us picture what the house would be like if we wanted to fix it up or what potentials the home had. Overall our experience with Winnie has been perfect and we would recommend her to any one who's looking for a Realtor who truly cares.

    • Winnie & Willis are hard working, goal-oriented, knowledgeable professionals in the real estate industry! As a first time homebuyer, I was overwhelmed. They explained a lot of the real estate lingo, the processes, and their thought processes as well. They helped me and my fiance find our dream home. I am so thankful to have Winnie & Willis as my agents, and would never go any other way. If you are unsure as to whether or not to choose Winnie & Willis, I hope my review will sway you in her direction!

    • Willis and Winnie were great in our process of finding a home. They were flexible, patient (dealing with the wants of multiple people), and super informative of the area we were looking in. And their abilities to remember the details of each home we looked at was amazing and so helpful when making a decision. What made them stand out even more was their willingness to take care of us till the end even post escrow and us settling in. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking. They really take care of you.

    • Absolutely just professionally, personable and pleasant experience from start to finish. Winnie is genuine, honest and strategic. She works hard and does her best to listen and work with you. The home buying experience is probably one of the biggest purchase and having Winnie by our side helped alleviate the stress and tension. We were able to get the house we wanted in the shortest amount of time. I'd definitely recommend her to all my friends and family. Thank you again Winnie!

    • I met Willis at an open house and asked him to be my realtor on a 1031 exchange I needed to complete in 45 days. Both he and Winnie were there for me 24/7 and we were able to close the deal on both sides of my 1031 exchange within 3 days of eachother! Highly recommend them for both residential and commercial property!

    • It was an absolute pleasure working with Winnie and Willis!We were first time homebuyers and had so many questions (and skepticism) and Winnie and Willis kept it real with us the whole time. They are also absolutely organized keeping us, our mortgage broker, and the selling agent, to a timeline so we knew exactly what was needed, and when, and what was coming up.They bring such a wealth of knowledge to the homebuying process from understanding market trends to the nuts and bolts of what is possible to reconfigure (ourselves), to negotiate, and to show us what can be reimagined. They brought up many different points we needed to think about what are the absolute must haves vs nice to haves, what contingencies should we feel [un]comfortable/uncomfortable waiving in this crazy market in our situation, and what other developments are happening in the neighborhood that would affect us as homeowners now and in the future.Aside from their extensive knowledge as realtors, they also brought an entirely different perspective drawn from their other ventures including a construction company and rental/leasing company (the latter extremely important to us as we purchased knowing we wanted to lease out). They were able to offer valuable insight when talking about "buying the dream" versus "building the dream" which was not something that had crossed our minds. We learned that there is so much more to each home than what we could see on the surface.I would recommend the both of them to all my family and friends looking to purchase it was a great experience buying knowing the both of them had our backs and were trying to achieve our home buying dreams with us!

    • Winnie and Willis are professional, knowledgeable and so nice to work with. They always answer questions on time and provide a lot of tips for me (first time home buyer) as well. I feel really confident and comfortable having them handled the whole process for me. They guide me through the process step by step with a lot of patience.
