FIVE STARS!! As most sellers you want to find the best agent, well I did. I went through the interview process and it was clear Andy was going to do a good job, but I didn't expect the quality and professionalism Andy displayed throughout the process, Andy went above and beyond the call, while I was out of town he took care of everything and I mean everything. Andy is well known in the industry for a reason, it is because he is the "BEST" agent you would want to work with. Andy is extremely knowledgeable, he markets extremely well, he draws interest, and he is well respected so he gets a lot of buyers to at least look at his properties. With Andy's help we SOLD quickly, I can't overemphasize how Andy helped us. If you are a seller or buyer, you can't go wrong with Andy's expertise.

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Famous Ships, Foster City, CA.
We met Andy in open house and was impressed by his professionalism, as you can imagine, soon he became our buyer agent. But what you won't imagine is that just a few days later, Andy got us our dream house with our first submitted offer at a very decent price ! Working with Andy, buying house is as easy as shopping on Amazon. He is efficient, professional and responsible, before and after closing. Working with him, you will know why he is No. 1 in foster city.

Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Bays, Foster City, CA
Andy is the best realtor we've ever worked with. He was able to help us sell our house for a record price (and in record time) and buy a new house in a very competitive city in the Bay Area. We could not have done any of this without Andy's help. Andy is quick with solutions, always reachable by phone or text, informative, knowledgeable, and has the right connections. If you intend to buy a new house or sell your house in the Bay Area, I would absolutely recommend you contact Andy. You won't regret it!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2018 in Explorers, Foster City, CA.
I was referred to Andy by my brother in law, who been taking care my investment in Bay area for years. Unfortunately, he had a stroke and was not able to woke recently. He highly recommended Andy as selling agent for selling my property in Bay area. He said, over his 20 yrs realtor experiences, Andy is the top one he'd recommend. He also told me a story how he found Andy is thorough, responsive, and reliable. Andy was so great to work with. He is very knowledgeable and experienced. He was very attentive to every detail and helped us every step of the way. He helped us solve our rental issues and helped us to make our property look at its best for showings with reasonable expense. He made the transaction smooth and effortless on our part. We highly recommend Andy Gan.
Sold a Multi Family home in 2019 in Northeast Hillsdale, San Mateo, CA.
Andy helped us to buy our first home in Foster City. He knows every part of the neighborhood and is responsive all the time. He actively worked upon our budget and gave the best home buying suggestions for us. He explained pros and cons of each house we visited in detail, and gave accurate price estimates. Unlike other agents I have talked with, Andy is very patient and never push us to make hasty decisions. I would recommend Andy to anyone without any hesitation.
Bought a home in 2017 in Parkside, San Mateo, CA 94404.
I can't explain enough how great this whole experience was with Andy, especially with us being first time homebuyers.
We never thought we would be able to move into this type of home in this neighborhood, and I don't think we would have without Andy.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Pacifica, CA.
Andy just helped us buy a great home we really love. This was a long process lasting more than 2 years as we just came here from overseas then. We were not in a hurry and needed time to familiarize us with the Bay Area real estate market. Andy never rushed us and patiently guided us to learn about many different neighborhoods and identify homes that fit the needs of our family. Many times, we found interesting homes and after talking to Andy realized that they were not right for us. Finally we saw two homes working for us. After researching both properties, Andy explained to us about different aspects of each home, which was very helpful to our decision making. When making the offer, Andy also went the extra mile to help us negotiate the best price, which we knew was hard to do in such a hot market. Andy’s professionalism and knowledge of the market are very impressive. Equally important we felt is that he really looked after our interest all the time and we can fully trust him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Los Gatos, CA.
Andy orchestrated the sale of our Foster City townhouse. I was nervous about the situation because I needed to be in Southern California during most of the process. Andy's attention to detail, competent team (renovation, staging, photography, landscaping, inspection, etc.) and appropriate communication resulted in a successful and low-stress experience. Ultimately, the buyer ended up being one of Andy's clients as well. While this can be a delicate situation, I have no doubt that Andy handled the transaction with flawless integrity. Furthermore, I believe Andy understood the needs and desires of both parties so well that he ultimately helped to broker a win-win-win (buyer, seller, broker) transaction. I highly recommend Andy Gan for any Real Estate transaction

Bought and sold a home in 2017 in Parkside, San Mateo, CA 94404.
Andy was able to sell our Foster City home in a very short time frame and made us feel like we were one of his most important clients. He spent as much time as we needed to talk and answer our questions and was very generous with his time. He is also very hard working, we were impressed with the amount of marketing and hands on approach. We saw first hand how Andy put in 110% by personally making sure the open house signs were placed at strategic places and he was always at the open houses even beyond the set times as needed. He was a comforting, and calm presence through a very stressful time. Best of all, Andy's expertise on the price point was so accurate and we were so thankful for Andy's negotiation and knowledge in pricing the house. We could not be happier and plan to use Andy's services again for sure.

Your search for the best real estate agent ends here. If you are looking to buy in Foster City or surrounding area, Andy is definitely the go to person! It was a great pleasure working with Andy to purchase our house. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market, easy to work with and always willing to help with all our questions.

We got the property at the price we wanted and Andy even neogitiated a credit amount that was far beyond our expectation! I will recommend Andy without any hesitation.

Bought a home in 2016 in Foster City, CA 94404.
Update 2/2016 Andy was our agent for a second time, this time for the sale of our condo. He guided us through the entire process flawlessly and impressed us with how effortless the entire sale was for us. He is very knowledgeable in his subject area and offered us valuable advice whenever we needed it. His negotiation skills brought us offers that were beyond what we were expecting. I would happily trust him for any other real estate transactions I need to do in the future. ----------------------------------------- Andy represented us in the purchase of our new home. This was a long process for us until we found the right home and Andy was our partner throughout the entire timeframe. He is very professional with excellent knowledge of his industry and trends and shared his insights with us openly. He was very prompt in getting back to us for any question we had and always felt we had 100% of his attention, no matter how basic our inquiries were. He also has an extensive network within his field that he gladly shared with us when requested. We found his partnership extremely valuable and we would certainly work with him in any future real estate transaction. We highly recommend Andy for any local real estate needs.

Sold a Condo home in 2016 in Boats, Foster City, CA.
Andy helped us buy a house and later sell our old house. We have two young kids and work full-time, but never felt stressed during the entire buying/selling process because Andy took care of everything for us (cleaning, staging, scheduling inspections just to name a few). On top of that, his negotiation skill helped our first offer get accepted by the seller even beating a cash offer and he sold our old house within a week, far exceeding our expectations. Andy is your go-to person for any real estate needs especially in Foster City.

Bought a home in 2012, San Mateo, CA.
Andy has helped us with 4 transactions during the past two years, three as buyers' agent, and one as the listing agent. Each time, his attention to details, negotiation skills (involving knowledge of the human psychology), and foresight have ensured us the best deal. Andy is 100% devoted to his clients. He is honest, ethical and is definitely in this business for the long-term. Thumbs up for Andy!
