She's Professional


Hong helped us purchases a house in the difficult Corvallis Real Estate market. She and her assistant Diana were professional and worked on our behalf to complete the sale. We are very grateful for their assistance.

She's Well Organized


Hong was a great listing agent. She has the rare trait of being honest in the real estate industry, hard to find in this day and age. She was well organized and aware of market conditions and helped to guide our decisions regarding the best options for us concerning our house. She was looking out for us not just herself and the commission involved. Thank you Hong

She Helped Us To Find a Home That We Are Very Happy With


Hong helped us buy a home in Corvallis in the summer of 2014. We were moving to Corvallis in early August so we started looking for homes online and Hong would visit them for us and provide feedback which was very helpful in narrowing them for a viewing when we came to town for few days. We saw a lot of homes before we found one that fit our needs and Hong was very patient, helpful and responsive throughout the process. 

One home we had a contract on fell through and Hong was very helpful in navigating that process. Since we were hoping to move into that home and did not have a back-up place to stay we went through an intensive home hunting two week period. She was very responsive, devoted a lot of time for us and helped us find a home that we are very happy with.

She Took Us Seriously

Hong helped us find and purchase a home even though the actual buyers (in-laws) were out of state. As first time home buyers we needed a lot of gudance throughout the search and negotiations. Hong was patient and very re-assuring and she was somehow ALWAYS available for us. I never felt rushed which was important to me. 

I met several local agents during my initial open house visits that were kind but were too emotional for my taste. I knew I would work well with Hong when I met her. She was straight forward and a logical thinker. She took us seriously and I very much trusted her to take care of us, which she did!

She Is An Expert

We have had the opportunity to work with Hong Wolfe while buying our home and while selling it. As a buyer's agent, Hong was instrumental in helping us get to know Corvallis - which was very helpful as we came from out of town. She understood our needs and helped us find a wonderful home. She is an all-business negotiator and she helped us avoid over paying for the house even in a hot seller's market. Hong made the entire process very easy for us. 

As our seller's agent, Hong was brilliant! Her photographer took beautiful pictures of our home - which was a KEY part of getting buyers interested. Hong's long list of marketing tools really helped us gain wide exposure and brought many buyers to our house within days of listing. We were very satisfied with our sales price and our contract terms thanks to Hong's negotiating skills. She is an expert!

Detail Oriented - Bright - Proffessional


Hong has been the best realtor we have had in probably 15+ real estate transactions. She is hard working, pays attention to details, very bright, very professional, and keeps you informed at all times. We would definitely use her again if needed.

Hong Is The Best Example of What a Professional Agent Should Be


Hong is the best example of what a professional agent should be. She took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for in a new home and made sure we were notified as each new listing came on the market. When we found the perfect house, she helped us through the process of the purchase by ensuring that we understood the complicated language of the contract. She was always available to answer our concerns and questions. We were grateful for her expertise and knowledge as we made our way through the daunting process. We would not hesitate to recommend Hong to anyone.

She Went Above And Beyond Anything We Expected


We were out of town buyers. Found Hongs bio on the internet and were impressed with her CV. Her qualifications did not dissapoint us. We made two trips to Oregon. Communication was important and Hong kept us in the loop with telephone calls, emails and faxes. We found a home with Hongs help. She went above and beyond anything we expected, even after the close of the sale. We still stay in touch with her and highly recommend her to assist in the purchase of a home.

Hong Is Great


Hong met with us and provided excellent input on pricing of our house -- even though she knew that we planned to try to sell the house ourselves, and only if that failed would we need an agent. We asked Hong to meet with us and give us a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of our house to give us an idea of whether we were in the right ball park of asking price. We let Hong know from the outset that we were planning to try FSBO (for sale by owner) first, but that if this didn't work, we would likely seek an agent. Hong was extremely friendly, open, frank, and not at all condescending. She didn't hesitate to give us an estimate of the price we could probably ask for our house -- and how that might be different with or without an agent. (This contrasts with our experience with another agent, who accepted our offer to meet with us, but refused to tell us the price she might ask -- and didn't let us know ahead of time that this was not something she would do for us.) We had good luck and it looks like our sale is going to go through, so we won't need an agent -- but if we had, we'd definitely have gone with Hong. She was great!



She Helped Us to Buy The Perfect Home


Hong helped us buy the perfect home. And she did it from 900 miles away. Ours was a difficult transaction because we were in a different state. Hong was very patient with us and answered all our questions.

She Managed To Exceed Our Expectation


We had a really good experience with selling our property through Hong Wolfe. She gave us an accurate estimate on how much we should sell our home and provided feedback on how to improve our home value.

Pictures posted on MLS was done beautifully and professionally.

She worked hard as our agent and diligent when reviewing buyer offers. In addition, she understood our needs and as we set our expectations, she managed to exceed them.

If you are looking for an agent that has no non-sense approach and accessible, I would recommend her.

She Negotiates Very Well

Hong worked very hard to get our house sold. She was always prompt in getting back to us with any questions we may have. She negotiated very well on our behalf to get our home sold in a short period of time. We would highly recommend Hong for any one who is looking to sell or buy a home.

She Helped Me To Reach My Goal


Hong Wolfe worked hard to list and find a buyer for my parents home. She worked well with the buyer's realtor as well as the title agent. Because of Hong, my parent's home has a new couple who will use the home as their primary residence! That was my goal. Thank you Hong for all your hard work.

Highly Recommended


Hong has a very calm and professional manner of handling her clients and transactions. My wife and I have closed on four properties in the past, but were also pleasantly surprised to have learned a great deal from Hong during this deal. She provided very useful counsel on how to negotiate and keep an open mind to all our options. Had it not been for Hong, we are both sure that we would have settled for an inferior deal. Highly recommended.

She Is Hard Working


We found her to be very hard working and to understand our needs. I would strongly recommend her. Our farm had been on the market over a year with another prominent agency with no success. Once we switched to her we began having strong realistic activity immediately and it sold approximately six months later.

She Is Very Good at Long Distance Services


Hong must be the hardests working woman in the area. After over a year with 2 other agents we hired Hong. We then found out what an agent is supposed to do. She is in contact in any form you want, and never seems to sleep. We have had emails from her in the middle of the night with suggestions or information. She is very good at long distance services. We live 150 miles from the property didn't even meet her until after the sale. I highly recommend Hong.

Her Most Impressive Feature Is Her Responsiveness


As first-time home buyers in a new town, we were grateful to have had Hong as our realtor. She made purchasing a home a low stress and enjoyable experience and we are extremely happy with the purchase she ultimately helped us make. We worked with Hong throughout the entire home-buying process. She provided us with information about the local real estate market, toured homes with us, helped us make and negotiate an offer, and assisted us through closing. True to her style, Hong even checked in with us after our purchase to make sure that we were comfortable and pleased with the property. We were hesitant and timid buyers, but Hong remained patient and honest with us throughout the 12 months that we worked together to find a home. She never tried to push us into making an offer and even steered us away from potential pitfalls. Hong's most impressive feature is her responsiveness. She never failed to provide us with information if we had a question or concern, even if it was outside her immediate domain, and always got back to us promptly. As a result, we always felt as though Hong was looking out for us. We are very satisfied with Hong's services and I enthusiastically recommend that other home buyers contact her.

She Is Absolutely Fantastic

We sold our second home and bought our third with Hong. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone - she is absolutely fantastic. In fact, we were so impressed with her that we recommended her to my own mother, who wants to move to this area from CA. Give Hong a call - you will be glad that you did.

Professional - Prepared - Helpful - Personable


Hong is very professional, prepared, helpful, and personable. We enjoyed working with her and were very happy with how quickly she always responded to our questions. She helped make potentially very stressful situations easier to cope with, as well. She's amazing!

~ Christina

Without Hesitation I Strongly Recommend Hong


Hong Wolfe helped us sell our previous place and buy our new home. I can only say great things about her professionalism, availability and attention to detail with both. Financially, she more than earned her fees. She negotiated both the purchase of our new home and selling of our last home and without her experience we would have paid more and made less for the selling & buying of our homes. Without hesitation I strongly recommend Hong Wolfe. This was the best experience we have had working with a realtor. We'll definitely seek her out if we move again or have friends that are moving!

I Would Work With Her Again


We had a great experience working with Hong. I was really impressed with how responsive she was. She was always available to answer questions, show us houses, and help us with the process of making a purchase. If she didn't answer the phone immediately she usually called back within 20 minutes, she was equally prompt over email. We were moving to Corvallis from out of town and I feel that she did an excellent job of coordinating all of the paper work we needed to do over phone and email since we were unable to be there in person much of the time. She was also good at getting a feel for what we were looking for in a house and making good suggestions about where to look and what to look for. I would work with her again.

I Would Use Her Again In a Heartbeat


Hong Wolfe sold my father's house in under two months from listing to closing, and at a price equal to what he paid for it in 2005 at the top of the market. We had offers within 2-3 weeks of listing the house. 

I have never bought or sold a house before, and was grieving for my father, and she made the process very easy for me. I live out of town, so everything from checking house cleaners in and out of the house, refuse disposal, landscaping, and contractors for repairs fell to her. She provided me multiple quotes for those services when I asked for them. And in two cases, she suggested we negotiate that the buyer should pay half of the repair cost, and then did so, saving me roughly $3,000. She worked hard, and in my opinion, earned every penny of her commission.

I trust her. I would use her again in a heartbeat, and I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in the Corvallis area who needs a Real Estate agent.

Hong Is a Pleasure to Work With

Highly professional, dependable and local expertise in the area. Hong is a pleasure to work with. She worked tirelessly to find us the perfect home. She is responsive and very knowledgeable about the market she represents. When it came time to make an offer, she was very helpful throughout the process. 

I have never had a realtor follow-up after the sale to make sure we are settling into our new home. She's an honest, reliable broker that would be a real asset to anyone looking to buy or sell.


We Were Immediately Impressed With Her Knowledge


We met Hong at an open house she was showing and were immediately impressed with her breadth of knowledge of the area and her willingness to discuss the housing market, local neighborhoods and our particular goals in buying a home. Hong met with us again to go over more details and provided us with a fantastic folder packed with information about the city and it schools. As newcomers to the area, we greatly appreciated Hong's detailed approach as we contemplated where to buy and the type of home we wanted. Our process took several months, and Hong was amazingly patient as she showed us numerous houses, always responding immediately to any follow up questions we had. Her approach is very professional, always willing to discuss our questions and provide an objective opinion, but we appreciated how she would unlock the door to a prospective house and walk with us, letting us take the lead to explore and ask questions. We never felt pressured and always, from the beginning to even after the close, felt like Hong had paid attention to what we were saying and was looking out for our interests. We would highly recommend Hong as an agent. Her professionalism, knowledge of the area and the process, responsiveness and dedication make her stand out as a realtor.


Personable - Knowledgeable - Professional

It was a pleasure to have Hong Wolfe as our listing agent. She is very personable as well as very knowledgeable and professional. Her suggestions for making our house more appealing to potential buyers and her initiative in posting the for sale sign in our yard before the house's official listing as real estate for sale led to an early offer and quick sale through another agent. That agent was representing the buyers, who were looking for a home in the neighborhood. We couldn't be more happy with the results! We would heartily recommend Hong Wolfe as agent for any real estate transaction!

 

We Have Been Impressed With Your Overall Knowledge of The Market

Hong: 

I'm writing this to tell you, and others as you may see fit, how much my wife and I have appreciated your help in our recent search for a suitable property to buy for our investment purposes. As we began our search in July of this year, we were fairly preoccupied with our own project of refurbishing a rental property we had in the east Portland area, when we realized that we had a need for property in Corvallis. We had not spend any time there for some sixty years, when we had been in school there, and we knew little to nothing of the changes that had occurred over that time. 

We understood almost too late, that our grandson would be attending in school there in the fall, and so the first concern was to see what the rental housing situation was after so many years. What we found after visiting for a few days was that we couldn't search, view, and commit to a rental contract fast enough to keep up with the rental market. So then, having engaged your services we began our search for an appropriate property to buy, with your very able help. 

You were able to find, ans show to us fairly wide range of candidate properties, and finally, having found our winning candidate, we entered into the negotiation stage. This is where we really began appreciate your extraordinary skills. Since our home is/was in Vancouver, Washington, you had the appropriate tools to enable us to communicate well and often, as well as to read and sign all necessary documents in an efficient, timely fashion, and keep us headed in the right direction without being unduly distracted by what turned out to be some other inappropriate and unprofessional communications by the seller's representative. 

Having now concluded the acquisition, we are very appreciative of the calm, cool professional control you exercised at some difficult points in our negotiations. My wife and I have been through some twenty-six real estate transaction over our lives, and this one the most difficult. We have been impressed with your overall knowledge of the market we entered, and we have been very thankful and satisfied with the services you performed for us. 

Thank you very much,

Preston and Helen Adkins

 

Professional and Responsive

We found Hong and her assistant, Diana, to be very professional and responsive. We were very impressed with their timely updates and communication. They used current technology to help us manage most of the offer and sales process remotely. Hong helped us secure the property even though we were second position offer in this very tight market. Her advice to me and negotiation with the seller were key to getting us moved to first position and closing quickly.

 

Amazed by her Efficiency

I contacted Hong to represent me as my buying agent while she was on a business trip overseas. She made it seem easy and I was amazed at how efficient her work was. Even though the transaction didn't go through due to my personal reasons, and I'm pleased by just knowing her.

 

I Feel Very Comfortable Using Hong as a Realtor

 

Hong was kind enough to walk us through several houses as we were traveling throughout Oregon. Important to me was that she responded quickly to our request for assistance and has not been a problem about bothering us afterwards. Important to me was the fact that she knew that we were looking at properties in several locations in Oregon and she's been kind enough to continue following up with us. I feel very comfortable using Hong as a realtor if we choose to purchase in the area where her expertise is greatest.
