See what these clients have to say about Anson

"My husband and I knew we would be remodeling our home, as such Anson’s architectural background was extremely helpful. During the walk-through of potential homes we would discuss remodeling possibilities and estimated costs. Anson would also inform us of when it would be too much to remodel and make a house the home we were looking for... We highly recommend Anson and have already discussed his work with friends who are looking to buy a home in the next year or two."

"I’m so glad that I had Anson as my agent to sell my house in a rush. I was on an extremely tight schedule, and it was my last day before I had to take off for Europe. Anson advised me to sell my house as-is, off the market for a quick and profitable return. After just a single week off- market, I accepted an offer for almost $3 million with two months of rent back. That’s $500,000 above what I asked! I’m incredibly thankful that I had Anson to take care of everything for me while I was out of the country. Anson’s always looking out for what’s best for his client, and I would recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling a house."

M. Christensen (Judy Ave, Cupertino)

"Anson was able to sell our house our house way above asking price. At first, we wanted to sell off the market, as we already had four potential buyers interested in the house and didn’t want to go through the hassle of an open house. Anson had our best interests in mind, and he assured us that he would be able to get buyers interested in the house who were willing to pay much more than we initially listed. We’re glad that we listened to Anson’s advice. Buyers were offering us $300,000 above what we were expecting, and Anson was even able to negotiate for an additional $100,000! We made an extra half-million dollars thanks to our amazing agent!"

R. Jacobs (Barnhart Ave, Cupertino)

"We are an older, retired couple looking to move out to Brentwood. We didn’t have the energy to pack up all of our belongings and set up an open house. Anson understood our needs very well; he agreed that selling the house as-is off the market would be an excellent idea. In no time at all, Anson was able to bring in two buyers, and one of them was willing to pay half a million dollars more than we asked! After selling our house, Anson also put us in contact with an agent in Brentwood. Because of Anson’s incredible recommendation, buying a new house was just as easy as selling our old one. Anson’s hard work is truly a blessing; he went above and beyond our expectations!"

C. Tong (Brett Ave, Cupertino)

"When it came time to list our mother's nice, but older home in the Rancho Rinconada area of Cupertino, there was no question or hesitation but to ask Anson Ip of Compass Realty to handle the sale. We are long time residents and homeowners in this area of Cupertino ourselves, thus we were well aware that Anson was one of the leading residential real estate agents in our area. He is well- connected with access to many types of potential buyers and sellers, thus he spread the word of the upcoming listing before it even went on the market. Within a couple of days we had 4 offers and readily accepted a reasonable offer from a young family. It was an all-cash offer, and the property closed seamlessly within 10 days. Anson is a true real estate professional, responsive and attentive at all times during this complex process, and he is keenly aware of market conditions and movements. He is ultimately concerned for all parties' needs and desires. We highly recommend contacting Anson Ip if you are a potential buyer or seller for a home in this area of Cupertino."

"We had planned to sell our house 2 years ago and started looking for a realtor. I saw that Anson had much success in the Rancho Rinconada area and arranged for a meeting. Anson was very professional and discussed his marketing methods and how they would appeal to different prospective buyers. I was impressed that not only did he have many contacts in the realtor arena, but his architectural background provided ideas for future lot development. His business approach is strong but not pushy. Anson is soft spoken but speaks with authority and knowledge. Anson's ideas for adding value worked excellent; the staging and minor improvements, along with his marketing strategy, proved successful in the final outcome of the house sale terms. Not only did we receive several offers, but they were all were very attractive terms and conditions. Anson was able to drive the price even higher with further bidding. We were very pleased with how the sale turned out. A short escrow, cash and rent free for 2 months could not be better! I would recommend Anson for any realtor needs!"

"I met Anson at an open house in Cupertino years ago and was impressed with his professional manner and knowledge about the housing market. I had Anson as my seller agent when I decided to sell my home in Cupertino as he is an expert and #1 agent in Cupertino area. Anson met with me to go over the detailed update in my house and planned out a calendar events that we would followed from staging the house, timing the market, to when to open house. He is a top professional for marketing anybody's house. Anson's background as an architect helped me to update my house from 932 San Francisco to 1828 San Francisco. This was a big help on marketing as the house appeared to be more valuable. Anson was able to persuade buyers to offer at listing price or we would put the house back to market. The strategy worked and the final offer was higher than the original offer. Anson has done a great job. Anson had communicated the closing process with me ahead of time and we communicated with loan agent whenever we have questions. The closing process was smooth and successful with any stress. I highly recommend Anson to anyone who needs an real estate agent for his professionalism, architect background, knowledge in the housing market, and negotiation skill. He not only can get your house sold in a short period of time but also can sell your house at a higher price than most agents do."

"My mother actually found Anson and asked me to give him a call. She had seen his sale sign posts all over the neighborhood and thought that he must be good to have so many sale signs. My parents had owned the home since 1986 and had not done any remodel to the home. We knew going in that our fixer upper may need lot of work for it to be market ready. Thankfully, Anson's background as an architect came in handy as he gave us helpful suggestions that required minimal cost to get the home to be market ready. He told us which parts of the home required a new coat of paint and had a staging company set it up to appeal to a large array of potential buyers.

Anson carefully went over the 3 offers and discussed the positives and the negatives of each offer. The Offer we accepted was much higher than what we expected. In the end, his knowledge and expertise helped us choose the right buyer. Closing was very smooth and we closed on time without any hiccups. If we had to do it again, we would call Anson first.

"We first met Anson several years ago at one of his open houses. He was an active agent in our neighborhood so we saw his name and his listings around quite often. We selected Anson to be our agent because of his experience and expertise. We also knew he had a very strong network of buyers and an excellent reputation with other agents. He was experienced with selling an older home like ours. We had a more complicated scenario of having an existing tenant in the house; and also we were doing a 1031 exchange requiring a flexible closing date (up to 60 days). There were added difficulties of limited property showings and unknown definitive closing date for the buyer. Anson took all these “hiccups” in stride and delivered results far surpassing our expectations. Anson was very prompt communicating with us throughout our selling process, answering all our calls, emails and texts immediately. He would also give us daily updates on any progress made. As an architect, he has firsthand knowledge of being able to market the potential of a home. He knew the market and guided us well in terms of where to make improvements, if any. His experience working with developers in the area in new home construction was pivotal. We actually dropped by one of our open house tours, unannounced, and we observed Anson speaking to various buyers about how to maximize their investment in our home. He knew building costs, building codes, architectural limitations, etc. He was able to seamlessly market our home to a wide range of buyers. Anson worked hard pre-market,to drum up interest in our home and pre-market offers (as we requested). He spoke to 15 different prospects and was able to find a cash buyer. However, Anson recommended that we not accept the pre-market offer because he felt strongly that we could get a higher offer if we put our house on the market. We received a total of 9 offers, which exceeded our expectations. Thanks to Anson’s expertise and experience, he navigated us through the offer discussions efficiently and effectively. He provided incredible insight for us without making us feel pressured or uncomfortable with our decision. He was candid and forthright when we asked for his opinion. Because of these discussions, we were able to negotiate the final offer price to $225,000 above the listed price! Closing went smoothly. Anson did an excellent job handling all the details and deadlines, and responded well to all the specific requests we made. We are very satisfied with our experience working with Anson as our listing agent. We would not hesitate to work with him again."
