Hello! I'm Joseph Yen, a licensed real estate broker. I have lived in the Bay Area since 1988 and hence developed a profound, first hand knowledge of the local real estate market from both an agent and resident perspective. My philosophy is simple. I take to heart my clients’ goal of building a better future for their next generation and many generations to come. I work hard for my clients; always treat them with utmost care, patience and respect. Not only do I help my clients buy and sell their homes, I make it a point to guide them in building their fortune through real estate transactions and investments. Having been practicing real estate since attaining my real estate license in 1992, my hands-on experiences has enabled me to effectively negotiate the best deals for my clients, analyze inspection reports, and review complex contracts. ? My Attitude and Philosophy: I believe my success as a real estate agent is attributed to my desire to help families find their dream homes and realize their American dreams for success through building equities.
