PROVEN OUTSTANDING SERVICE!  (See also Dorothy's Platinum Rating from QSC)

Testimonial from Sellers:

Back in the beginning of January, I never would have imagined that the sale would have been as quick and as successful as it turned out.  Both Cindy and I were very impressed by how Dorothy quarterbacked the entire process from start to finish with terrific attention to detail.

We recently sold our home in Los Altos in Feb 2014.  After reviewing a number of agents, we decided that Dorothy Liu was, hands-down, the best choice.  We were impressed by her deep understanding of the market, incredible attention to detail, pragmatic perspective, and high level of enthusiasm and energy.

We ended up selling our house in record time – 21 days from listing to close of escrow!  Dorothy was instrumental in helping us prepare the house for market in record time.  She had a terrific rolodex of various service professionals (cleaners, painters, etc.) that helped our house show well.

Dorothy provided valuable help in reviewing the offers submitted and getting us into contract with a buyer.  Her diligent efforts and follow-through continued through Closing.  We were delighted to work with Dorothy on this transaction and would look forward to working with her again in the future.”                      -Steve & Cindy

“My parents had purchased our home in 1957, so when I decided to sell it 55 years later, it was difficult and emotional.  What was special about Dorothy was she turned an old worn-out house into a beautiful model home! She got us top brands after tirelessly shopping for the best prices.  She was always easily accessible and extremely friendly.  I felt like I was working with my best friend.  Dorothy is an amazing real estate professional but an even better person!  I would recommend Dorothy to anyone!”                                               -Kathy J.

“Dorothy amazes us by her energy, hard work, and experience.  Dorothy is an en excellent communicator, and has a positive, understanding attitude that makes it a joy to work with her. She sold our house more smoothly than we ever could have imagined.

We would absolutely want to use Dorothy when it comes time to sell again.  Dorothy simply took care of things and made things happen, while being unbelievably responsive to our suggestions as well.  She’s also innovative and creative, and has great contacts.  She got our home in stunning condition in just a few days and took just a few more days to generate multiple offers and sell above asking despite a relatively cool market.  We couldn’t imagine anyone putting in more time and heart into it as Dorothy, and give her our highest recommendation.”                            -Joel & Maria

“As the executor of my Mom’s estate, I was obligated to fairly distribute my Mom’s home and furniture to my siblings.  Lots of family emotions were involved.  Dorothy’s comprehensive presentation coupled with her enthusiasm sold me on engaging her services. Although the general real estate market was struggling, Dorothy proposed a strategy to quickly prepare the home for sale and at a very favorable price.  Dorothy helped by obtaining multiple quotes from licensed contractors.  Dorothy prepared a schedule and worked closely to ensure timely completions of the tasks. 

Why select Dorothy as a realtor?  Simply put – Dorothy is an excellent communicator in person, on the cell phone and email.  What sets her apart from the rest?  Dorothy is the most involved realtor I have ever met.  She meets the family and helped us all through the transition process.  Dorothy is absolutely undaunted in solving scheduling problems.  She is totally committed to every step in the process in the sale.  In conclusion, I received offers better than asking with no contingencies.  I was extremely happy with Dorothy’s real estate skills and would highly recommend her to anyone interested in selling their home.”                                                                 -Jack G.

“Dorothy has been very proactive and helpful in selling my home. She provides comparisons, analysis and recommendations as an expert agent in helping us make decisions and guiding through the process. She is honest and always looking out for us without being overbearing.  Dorothy has very effective communication skills, which helps her connect to all types of personalities. I’d like to recommend her for your real estate needs.”                                        -Ramesh D.

“We used Dorothy to sell our property and she was an excellent agent. Her expertise, dedication and sheer energy truly came across in selling our property: she was incredibly thorough in helping us prepare the property for sale, going far beyond what was expected, and then very supportive and diligent throughout the whole process. I can't imagine working with a better agent.”                                                                                                                        - Tanya & Jeffrey

“Hard working,  responsive, and resourceful are some of the qualities that describe Dorothy Liu as my real estate agent.  Her proactive response to resolve issues instill confidence that you are in good hands and that the transaction will proceed smoothly.

I felt relieved that there was someone that I can count on throughout to reduce the daunting task of organizing, preparing and selling the house to something that was not only manageable but was done efficiently and in a timely manner.  I recommend Dorothy Liu as a real estate agent – she will make sure that your home looks its best and will be professionally marketed.  She listens to make sure that your concerns are addressed.”                                                          -Irene H.

“We interviewed several realtors, and when the process was over it was obvious to us that Dorothy stood head and shoulders above the others.  She laid out a thorough, time phased plan to get our home ready and to provide maximum exposure to potential buyers.  Dorothy’s helpful spirit, coupled with her incredible energy level made the whole effort for us seem so much more manageable.  She was there for us at every turn, offering her help and dutifully checking details.  Our house sold in just ten days and most of the credit for that goes to the professionalism and capability demonstrated by Dorothy Liu. 


Dorothy has earned our respect and admiration.  We are proud to call her our friend and recommend her professionally without reservation.”                     -Joseph & Joan

“Superlative, outstanding, responsive, proactive – these are just some of the qualities that come to mind when we think of Dorothy Liu as our real estate agent.  Perhaps most important, she delivers.  Dorothy brings new meaning to the phrase “problem solving.”  She is tireless, resourceful, honest, and the consummate professional.

Dorothy’s marketing savvy really paid off!  Her thorough analysis of the market enabled us to exceed our expectations.  We wouldn’t hesitate to hire her again! We recommend her most highly to anyone selling or buying a home.”                                                                                            - Ted & Risa

“Dorothy is professional, energetic and dedicated to her job.  She works very hard to meet our expectation.  She takes care of almost everything:  overseeing the complete remodeling job, staging the house, and doing massive marketing for the house. We’re glad that we didn’t need to worry much once we put the job in Dorothy’s hand.  And most of all, she helps to resolve all the problems that comes up and she enjoys her work. 

It’s a good experience working with Dorothy, and we’ll recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home.”                                                                                                        - Doris L.

“We would recommend Dorothy without reservation.  Our family and neighbors were also very impressed with the beautiful remodel, as the home was not improved in any way since it was built 30 years ago.  It looked like a completely different place.

We were able to have our property listed about two weeks before Thanksgiving.  Dorothy and Alex went the extra mile and scheduled open houses even during the holidays.  We were very pleased with the appearance of the property and the number of potential buyers who visited during the open houses.  There was a very substantial level of interest in our place even though it was on the market very late in the year.  All of Dorothy’s  hard work and professional advice paid dividends.  We were in contract within two weeks.  The buyer’s offer was above our initial listing price.  We closed without incident within six weeks of our home being listed.   The entire experience exceeded our most optimistic expectation                     - Paul & Stephanie

“Real Estate Agent Extraordinaire – We asked our friends who had recently completed a move from Sunnyvale for a recommendation of a Real Estate agent.  Based on their glowing accounts of Dorothy Liu we also chose Dorothy to represent us – smartest decision we could have made.

In preparing our house for sale, she provided very professional services, brochures, staging and contacts for us to utilize in getting the house ready for sale.  Even in a “down market” Dorothy was able to show our house and within just 3 days we were in receipt of an offer over our asking price.  We couldn’t have been more pleased! 

Dorothy’s follow-up is exemplary too.  In closing the deal she was there whenever we needed her, reviewing paperwork, making sure everything was in order and just plain looking out for our welfare in every way possible.  In short, she is the consummate professional.  We are both pleased to unconditionally recommend Dorothy with the highest commendation.  The decision to use her services as your representative in any real estate transaction will be one of the smartest things you can do.”                                                             -Mike & Linda

“Dorothy is the hardest working agent I have met.  She consistently performed above and beyond our expectation.  Anybody can do paperwork.  Dorothy was always willing to handle the surprises that inevitably arise.  The sale with Dorothy was much smoother and less stressful than our other transactions I’ve had.  This was almost totally attributable to Dorothy’s hard work.  I will strongly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.”         - Mike & Patty

“Thank you for the excellent service you’ve provided us.  As full-time IT professionals, we were stressed on the move to a better school district until we met Dorothy.  We were selling while we were living there… You can imagine how challenging it was with two young children.  The house was gorgeous when it was put on the market.  There were about 400 people visiting during the two weekend open houses and was sold after only two weeks -  with a price much higher than we listed.

We were so impressed by Dorothy’s professionalism, integrity, hard working, enthusiasm, attention to detail and always going one step beyond!  We love her! Our two kids love her.  She’s not only our agent, but we consider her our lifetime friend.”                     -Marian, John, Edward & Marissa

“I’m writing to thank you for the amazing job you did selling my mom’s house.  My sister and I interviewed several real estate agents but your thoughtfulness, knowledge base, enthusiasm, professionalism, and analytical abilities were clearly superior.  But that was just the beginning!  The fact that my sister and I live over an hour away made it crucial that we pick someone who could go the extra mile because we just didn’t have the time to be there during so many of the required steps in getting the house ready for sale.

Well, you delivered!  I’m still in amazement how you managed it all.  The transformation of my mom’s house, in which my family lived for over 50 years, was incredible.  You spent countless hours doing so much work and always maintained your enthusiasm and humor.  We were on a pretty tight schedule and you managed it all perfectly.  It all came together and your “team” did an excellent job at very reasonable prices.  I could go on and on about the myriad of details and decisions that needed our attention and how you helped us step by step while always keeping us informed and in the loop; it was quite a job.  Finally, your expertise in negotiating during the sale was invaluable.  The sale went so smoothly and we ended up receiving substantially more than the asking price.  Our hopes and expectations were clearly exceeded.

Whoever may be reading this and thinking of hiring Dorothy as a real estate agent, all I can say is don’t hesitate.  Get Dorothy working with you and you will most definitely not regret it.  Dorothy Liu is the best.”            - Jeff T.
