"Your Happiness Is My Success"
Maggie Tan hails from Penang Island, Malaysia; a small former English colony. Her multi-cultural upbringing made her fluent in the English Language, several Chinese dialects (Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien) and Bahasa Malaysia.
Maggie sees the challenges in real estate as opportunities to improve and enhance her skills. Maggie has developed a body of advice that encompasses all she has learned. “I feel that one must place ethics as a top priority. Documentation counts and so does confidentiality. Personally, I need to know that I always acted in my client’s best interest on each aspect of a transaction.”
My Mission Statement:
“I am committed to the delivery of Effective and Courteous real estate service. I treat you with Honesty, Dignity and Respect. In addition, I offer advantages and attributes beyond the ordinary.”

“We enjoyed working with Maggie. She helped us buy a house in Walnut Creek. She was very helpful and patient. She also helped us sell our place in Oakland and met our expectations in every way. Maggie: Beth and I can't thank you enough for your great work. It is not just that the price was very much higher than we expected but the way you handled every detail. I really appreciate you! Jb”… Jonathan B & Elizabeth B
“Your files have got to be the most complete, most organized files I have ever seen an agent put together. The way you anticipate and cover all bases is a testament to how you really look out for your clients best interest. It shows you take pride in your work. Thanks for making my life easier when reviewing your files.”… Shannon M., Coldwell Banker Office Administrator
"Maggie saved the sale of my house. She was very good at keeping my goal in mind. She has great ethics, was prompt and efficient, and delivers what she promised. Maggie was a great communicator and kept me in check during the process. I rate her service a 10 out of 10. I would feel very comfortable referring my friends and family to her.”… J. W.
”Maggie is the best! She is very thorough, often finding details which required correction which neither the other Realtor nor we had detected. She bargained effectively regarding financial responsibility for items for us. From the beginning she assured us she had everything under control. Maggie delivered what she promised and communicated well and we were well informed every step of the way. Her ethics are 10 over 10."... Barrie & Carol C
"My family and I were very pleased with the assistance Maggie has provided. During the whole process Maggie was very patient and thorough. Besides educating us on several important aspects on house purchase, she continued to send out helpful information and shared tips even after escrow was closed. I would definitely refer Maggie to my friends."…Shepherd Y
”Maggie was exceptional. I have never experienced service at this level. She coordinated each aspect of the transaction, kept all parties involved working as a team (lender, selling agent, appraiser, and buyer). When we had questions, Maggie was accessible and knowledgeable. I never felt the need to call Maggie for updates. We always knew what was going on. We would recommend Maggie to anyone who wants a hard-working, experienced real estate agent. She really understands the real estate business. We feel privileged to have worked with Maggie.” …Tim H & Sharee H
"Maggie Tan demonstrated a keen knowledge of the real estate process, all of which provided a very seamless transaction. She reassured us if we had any questions, and made the process extraordinarily fluid, personal and professional. We have bought and sold properties and never recommended an agent, until now. She was excellent."…Wanda P & Sonja P
“Maggie Tan was more than a real estate agent. She was a sales and marketing specialist, advocate and strategist. Maggie faced many obstacles managing a Short Sale which was managed by an un-coorperative lender, and negotiating with bureaucracies given my sister’s passing (estate issues). I was mourning during the process and faced with legal issues regarding my sister’s estate. I was tired, cranky, emotional and busy. Maggie was patient and compassionate. I look back at the experience and she really did manage the entire transaction. She was ethical and communicated all issues to me and presented my options. If I ever sell or buy property in the Bay Area, Maggie is my choice agent.” …Rowena B
“I would definitely work with Maggie again. All I can say is that she is great and has a great personality. I am a very meticulous person with high standards. Maggie was patient and made me feel comfortable. It was a very stressful time for me as I was juggling many other responsibilities at the same time. I also appreciated that Maggie did a lot of legwork in following up with the inspectors for the house and referrals to other reputable people and company for any repairs, because that allowed me to focus on my work. Maggie also has a wonderful sense of homor, a calm demeanor, and cared about what was in my best interest. I will definitely seek her help again in the future if I buy or sell a home. Great job Maggie! I look forward to sharing some French cuisine with you.” ...Sylvie D
“Maggie Tan was very prompt. She knows the technology side of marketing my property. She’s very polite and has a lot of energy. With the ever-changing housing market, you need someone who can deliver results. Maggie has always handled all matters in a professional manner.” … Jeffery O
“Maggie was a joy to work with. She is knowledgeable and is an excellent communicator. My offer would not have been accepted without her constant communications with the seller’s agent. Through difficult times communicating with the less-than-stellar agent, she managed to complete the paperwork and helped me close on-time. Will definitely recommend her to friends and family in the market for a home” ...Sam C
”Maggie Tan delivered what she promised – never failing to answer my many questions. She’s a very good listener and explained each step of the process. I would refer her to my family and friends. Maggie is a great real estate agent and now a friend.” ...Jennifer A
