We recently bought a townhouse in Sunnyvale thanks to John. He tried to recommend properties based on our preference but without any pressure at all. He gave detailed and honest comments about each property we saw together. This is our first time to buy a house so we had tons of questions, but he always responded to our questions even late at night or during long weekends. I referred him to a friend of mine and he also successfully bought a house with John. We feel really grateful to John for his support and guidance.

John is responsive, diligent and level-headed. He went above and beyond to help us close our deal. We went through several rounds of negotiations and each time John did whatever he could to keep both parties moving toward a common goal. Additionally, we had some problems with our lender, which he helped us manage. He was always on top of them and always offered to step in when our interactions with Citibank seemed to hit a wall. Even though our transaction is completed John continues to be a resource to us. He's recommended painters, gardeners, handymen, and I'm sure I will call on him for future referrals.

I used John for selling my old house to buying my new house. John goes above and beyond to make sure that you get what you want. He assisted with preparing my old house for sale to even helping me updates to my new home. He explained to me all the options during the sale and purchase processes and tried to narrow what would work best and would fit within my budget. He always followed up with everyone involved to make sure that things go as smoothly as possible. He does everything in his power to make the experience as smooth as possible as purchasing a home in the Bay Area can be stressful. If you are looking for someone who goes the extra mile and wants you to have the best experience possible, then I would highly recommend John.

We just sold our property in Sunnyvale with Lan and John helped. From the moment we met both of them, we felt the connection immediately. They were the one that most stand out among the other agents we interviewed. FYI, the other agents were also from among the best agents in Palo Alto, just like Lan and John. Lan and John are very approachable, responsive, honest, and professional. Even though they are one of the best agents in Palo Alto, they treat their clients with the same standard, passion and diligent. You can read some other reviews in yelp (read also some that got filtered by imperfect yelp's filter) or you can research about their reputation and MLS records online. The first step of selling the house is they came to our house and gave their recommendation based on their extensive backgrounds with house selling and buying to get the house ready. They have their own connections for handyman and painter to get things done quick with great quality and best price. Lan and John are great partners. I.e. John was very helpful with documents preparation, open house, or communication with the handyman and painter. In the other hand, Lan was very helpful in term of time planning for when to have the house ready, brochures preparation, or bidding war. We did not use any staging furnitures, but our own with their recommendation on how to stage it. They sent their professional photographer, prepared very professional brochures, local newspapers ads, and broker tours. During open house, both of them were professionally representing us, a lot of traffics to the open house, and a lot of people love it. We got multiple offers. Lan and John worked very hard to make sure we got the best price for our house. They were very well prepared, really know their business and gave their 200% to get the best deal. In the end, we got more than 10% above the listing price and so far, it's the highest price among other houses sold recently in the neighborhood.

John represented us in the sale of our Tasman Crossing Townhome in Sunnyvale this past October. Although the time of the season historically didn't favor sellers, John was able to close on the sale of our home 4 days after the open house at significantly above the ask. He was always available to us 24/7 from planning to execution. The team was personable, tactical, and most importantly, always listen to our needs. Thanks John for the excellent customer service!

John was a great agent. He helped my wife and I purchase a house a month after we met him! We are first time home buyers so we had a lot of questions and reservations. John addressed all of them with a high level of sincerity and thoughtfulness. It was extremely helpful to have him tell us what services / fees to make sure we opted for and which ones we could skip. He helped us not only with the logistical / contractual -- but also with our emotional concerns. He is always there to help and quick to respond. Additionally, he knows a lot of people in the business and was able to get us the right people at the right cost for several repairs we had to do on the home. If you are looking for someone who has a great heart as well as a great handle on the market -- we highly recommend John!

We worked with John to purchase our home in Los Altos. We met John at an open house 9 months ago and he started helping us understand the different areas in Palo Alto and Los Altos. At that time, we were not ready to purchase, but he would update us once in awhile about market conditions from his experiences with buying and selling in the area. He would also answer the many questions we had. All throughout the communication, we did not feel pressured to buy. When we were finally ready to purchase, we felt that he was on our side and try to help us get a great deal. He would not pressure us into something that we did not feel comfortable with. He would also provide an honest opinion in what he feels were issues with the property. We didn't get the first house, but John would always be in communication with us about potential properties as well as try to help us find off market properties. In the end, we had our offer accepted on the 2nd house. It was mainly due to John's amazing negotiation skills and persistence that we were able to get our house quickly and at a great price even in this super competitive market!

As first time home buyers, my wife and I were experts at attending open-houses, but that’s about it. Lan transformed a process we were both kinda dreading into something smooth, professional, and fast. Lan went so far above and beyond my expectations of a real estate agent:

We had our eyes on properties in Menlo Park for a while and by observing the transactions in the area for a couple of months, we found Lan and John. We noticed that in one of the recent transactions in this competitive market, the purchase price was very reasonable and Lan was the buyer agent. It appears to us that Lan is the type of agents who would care and protect the financial interests of her clients and we decided to approach her to see if we could work well together.

My wife and I have invested and sold many homes throughout the years, we also each owe business that service the real estate industry. We have working relationships with thousands of agents throughout the Bay Area. However, for selling our own home in Palo Alto, we’ve went with Lan Bowling. In our case, the whole selling process was executed fast and precise, and makes it a great example of Lan’s expertise, professionalism and execution.

This is the second time we came to Lan and John for their services. Since we had such a wonderful and satisfied experience with them a few years ago when we sold our first house. We have a strong trust and faith in Lan and her team, we go straight to Lan again for selling our house this time.

Lan is the most professional and knowledgeable realtor I have ever worked with. With Lan’s help, my husband and I just bought our retirement house in Palo Alto. Initially, I was not sure whether she would have enough time for me as a client but finally decided to give her a try after a long search. As soon as we started to work together, I immediately felt that I was her top client. This continues today — she is available to me anytime and has always delivered the best results for us at every step of the process.

We met Lan and John through friend’s referral and cannot be happier with the whole experience. We were looking to upgrade our townhouse to a single-family house and move to a neighborhood with great school district to raise our two girls. Throughout the experience, Lan and John has provided us with well-informed advice that came from years of experience. When selling our townhouse, they not only shared professional advice, but also shared with us a wonderful team of professionals (painting, carpeting, staging, etc) that gets the job done well and on schedule.

Lan represented us as seller agent for our property in Palo Alto. We brought Lan on board during the middle of remodeling, and she gave us extremely valuable advice how what buyers in this segment were looking for which in the end made all of the difference. The property had some nearby road and railroad noise issues. Nevertheless, Lan was able to get multiple offers and close the sale beyond our expectations.
