    Venus is a great agent! She helped our family find our dream home. What we really appreciated about her service - she's thorough, communicates openly along each step in the process, and negotiates hard (for you). We bought our home $200K below asking and through negotiations, received an additional ~$50K in additional value. Venus also has great partners - she recommended a mortgage lender that was great to work with. Wherever you get stuck in the process, she'll find a solution. She's wonderful at finding answers. Thank you Venus for being a great agent for us!

  • Connie S.

    Venus was our realtor when my husband and I bought our multi-family unit in San Francisco just a few months ago. This property had all the characteristics of a commercial building with long-term residents, vacancies, the works. And she helped us navigate the SF property market with utmost ease!


    Venus has been the most wonderful, patient, and hardworking realtor my husband and I've worked with. She will work with you to make sure you're comfortable and 100% in agreement every step of the way. When we weren't familiar with with esoteric real estate/legal term, she'd patiently explain so we're clear. She never rushed us, and she went out of her way to make herself and her resources available. She's always working, even when she's on vacation (probably not healthy, but we definitely appreciated it!).


    Whether you're looking for a first time purchase of a starter home condo, or you're looking for multi-unit commercial property (basically, anything and everything on the market!), I highly recommend Venus.

  • Valerie F.

    Venus has a tremendously supportive and helpful approach throughout the whole process -- from scouting property, asking all the right questions, loan processing, document signing, and even afterwards. I would highly recommend her to anyone that's a first-time homebuyer and naturally risk averse (like me!) -- she will meticulously guide you throughout every step of the way in the most calming way!

  • Connie C.

    Venus helped me purchase my first home in San Francisco! We met at an open house and she was very proactive about reaching out and helping me start the home buying process. This included taking me to open houses, going over disclosures and offer documents, and connecting me with the right people throughout the process.


    Venus is responsive, attentive, and understood well my requirements and what I was looking for. She was able to provide me with all the information I needed when making decisions on offers and the closing and loan process. She is also extremely experienced and has invaluable connections that helped with the search. There was also a lot of complicated paperwork with the closing process but Venus helped guide me through so that I wasn't too overwhelmed.


    Thank you Venus! Couldn't have done it without you.

  • Nicole K.

    I would HIGHLY recommend Venus to anyone looking for a real estate agent to help buy or sell their home in the Bay Area. Working in the title and escrow field, I work with many agents, and Venus definitely stands out as a star! We have worked together on many deals over the years and she is always proactive in communicating with our team before and during the deal to ensure her clients have a smooth and easy experience.


    For her buyers, Venus is always out looking at inventory, both on and off the market, to find her clients hidden gems or a home that meets most if not all of her clients checklists.


    For sellers, Venus has a wide network of vendors to help prepare your house for the sale to get you top price!


    If you are looking for an agent to help you navigate the ins and outs of the Bay Area real estate market, look no further than Venus Zheng!

    I always thought selling a house would be a stressful process but I was lucky to be guided throughout the entire selling process by Venus. My friend highly recommended meeting Venus rather than selling on Redfin. I was skeptical at first because Redfin offers a cheaper commission rate, but I couldn't be more happier with Venus and her expertise. From amazing marketing of my property to staging, I couldn't have asked for a better realtor to make my place actually look like a million dollar listing. Closed in less than 60 days and love the level of customer service and support she provided throughout the entire process. Now onto to the next adventure...buying a new place with Venus :) Thanks Venus!

  • David Y.

    I was looking to buy my first home in San Francisco and I was initially daunted by the whole process: loans, open houses, offer letters... It's all crazy stuff. My friend introduced me to Venus and everything became so much easier when she came into the picture.


    Venus treated this as an important life decision rather than just a transaction. I felt I had somebody on my side who was looking out for me. Venus had to face the challenging trifecta of my personal indecision, my parents (who were dropping most of the $$$), and a hot real estate market. She handled this with grace and patience as we pretty much toured half of SF for over 4 months.


    When I finally chose a place, Venus put on her business hat and made sure the closing was completed smoothly. I bought new construction so I was forced to use a incompetent loan agent from Wells Fargo. Luckily, I didn't lose any sleep over it because Venus drove this entire process.


    Venus also looks after you for the entire process. After I closed and moved in, she even sponsored my housewarming party! It was such a dope rager that HOA got all riled up because we were having too much fun. Some people in the world are party-poopers, but Venus is clearly not one of them :)


    If you are looking for a place in the city, I would definitely recommend Venus.

  • Leo R.

    Venus is one of the most hardworking and proactive people I've ever met in my life. Thanks to her hard work as my agent, my first home purchasing experience has been much more pleasant than I had anticipated.


    Venus is very detail oriented, she helped me understand all aspects that are important in purchasing a place - cap rate, appreciation outlook, mortgage choices, tax benefits, etc. All of these information allowed me to make an informed and well calculated decision on the property I decided on buying.


    Venus is also extremely resourceful and proactive. After learning that I was more interested in properties in the East Bay, she was able to bring on one of her colleagues who has a lot of experience in East Bay properties. Ultimately, we were able to absorb all the knowledge from her colleague and understood the East Bay housing market so much better.


    I would highly recommend Venus to anyone who is thinking about purchasing a home in the Bay Area. She will help you organize your preferences and give you suggestions base on them, connect you with resources that will greatly improve the deals you get (mortgage rate, incentives, big discount on furnitures, etc), and truly go out of her ways to ensure you will have a smooth and informed home purchasing experience.


    Thank you so much Venus!!

    Venus is top notch!


    Upon helping my sister and family search for her perfect home, Venus came to the rescue. She was very knowledgeable not only in helping us find a home, but helping us understand the conditions of the local markets along with the whole buying process. My sister was a 1st time home buyer, and that was something that was really helpful.


    Many people in the modern era compare realtors to online real estate platforms for selling and buying. This doesn't do justice to the guiding and hand holding that a true local real estate expert such as Venus brings to the table.


    If you are ever in need of buying or selling a home in the Bay Area, I would recommend Venus!

  • Steve L.

    Venus has been helping me plan my first time home buying experience. It's not an easy goal to reach in San Francisco. She has been going out of her way to make sure I am well educated and comfortable with each decision.


    She is a real estate agent that I can trust. I have referred 3 of my close friends to her and they have all had the same positive response.


    Thanks Venus!

  • Matthew T.

    Venus is a top-notch real estate agent. She has that rare mixture of being personable, a talented but low pressure sales person, and a wide breadth of knowledge and experience concerning all things Bay Area real estate-related.


    As an Estate Planning Attorney, I regularly help my clients solve issues related to real estate. Whenever they ask for a referral to a local realtor, I never hesitate to send them to Venus.


    Venus has extensive deal experience on representing both buyers and sellers. Regardless of which side of the sale you are on, you want Venus as you residential real estate agent!


    If you are looking for a realtor here in the Bay Area, I would highly recommend contacting Venus Zheng.

    After a year of first talking with Venus, I decided it was time to find a house. Despite her office being in SF, she worked with me to find my new house in San Mateo. The process was extremely smooth -- she clearly laid out all the options and was very helpful thorough the entire process. It was an incredible feeling when our offer got accepted! Venus helped secure a loan and make sure everything was in order. In the last few weeks of the process, she was abroad for a pre-planned trip to Asia, but was still extremely accessible: she responded to my questions over email every night and made sure that everything went smoothly. For things that required someone there, she always had an associate of hers on call in case I needed it. It's my first home purchase, and Venus helped me make my dream come true!

  • Eric C.

    Venus went above and beyond for me and my family. She made my wife feel informed and comfortable (not an easy task) with the decisions we made. She kept us up to date at every step of the process. We were trying to be competitive in San Francisco and the surrounding areas for a while but was being constantly outbid. We were starting to lose some hope but Venus kept working for us and found an amazing off-market listing. We thought for sure it was a long shot but due to online valuations and other comps in the area. Venus was able to do some research for us and gave us a strategy that raised our chances and our bid was accepted! We were kind of unprepared for a very fast close but luckily Venus helped us and our mortgage lender to make sure we closed our short escrow window. We got an amazing deal on a beautiful move in ready single family home in Lafayette. We are constantly getting the feedback of how great of a price we got the place at. Thanks Venus! Our kids now have a nice big yard to play around. My wife and I can now garden and host some big gatherings!

  • A T.

    I recently worked with Venus to purchase my first home, and I'm very glad I was referred to her by a friend.


    Venus took the time to understand my needs and wants, refining her recommendations and providing thorough details about each property. She explained the home buying process to me well, holding my hand through each part, from introductions through finally getting keys.


    She connected me with a great mortgage agent for pre-approval and financing early on, and kept involved in the entire process. Even better, when it came time to bid and negotiate an offer, Venus worked some magic and bargained the seller *down* from their initial counter offer, and we struck a good deal in the end! That's unheard of in San Francisco!


    You want a realtor with strong integrity who will work hard for you, be patient with you, understand you, and with whom you'll enjoy working. And Venus exceeds all of these.

  • Al Y.

    As a Mortgage Consultant, one of the biggest components of my job is to establish strong business relationships with great realtors. Venus is the exact type of realtor any client would love to have. She's prompt, super speedy on responses, extremely knowledgeable, and dedicated to finding the perfect place for her clients. The most recent client we both worked with together was incredibly happy with our collaborative effort and we all worked efficiently to realize his goal of finding his dream home.


    A+++ for Venus! :)

  • Alex T.

    Venus has done a great job helping me navigate the competitive SF market. As a first-time home buyer, I found the process pretty daunting. Luckily, I have Venus on my side to help explain every little detail each step of the way. She made sure I understand what to expect and how to best position myself to succeed in buying my first home.


    She is very proactive in following up to see what I think about the properties we look at as well as share any helpful details to help me consider whether I should put in an offer or not.


    If you are looking in the market for a home in San Francisco, I would highly recommend Venus!

    Venus is an awesome real estate agent and resource, she is very knowledgable and helpful for any questions I had for purchasing a home in the Bay Area. There were various nuances and considerations that she brought up to my attention, which saved a lot of headache and my own time if I were to research the topic myself or ask around. She's definitely my go-to when it comes to anything real estate. Venus has the network to connect me to the right folks for specialized questions as well. Highly recommended!

  • Chris P.

    Venus is one of the best agents I have worked with. As a first timer, Venus explained and made the process a lot easier. Even though the offer never fell through, I would highly recommend Venus for her professionalism and demeanor!

  • Wendy N.

    Venus is AWESOME!!!


    I started casually looking for my second home back in September 2017 and by October, I knew I wanted to purchase a home in Alameda. I was connected to Venus by a mutual friend who have said great things about her so immediately I contacted her. She was very professional and knowledgeable. She sent us leads and by early November, she helped us find the home of our dreams. We had to bid against someone who had no loan contingencies and we won! Venus walked us through every step of the way and we were able to closed escrow in 21 days! We couldn't have asked for a better agent. She is amazing and so so good at what she does. I highly recommend her!

  • TJ V.

    Venus is awesome to work with her customer service is unmatched and her responsiveness is swift and rarely does she ever make errors in her previous accounts. She is also highly responsible in making sure the needs of the accounts were met and checked in on a regular basis to see if myself and all the other clients were satisfied. I highly recommend working with Venus. 8 stars if it were an option.

  • Jason R.

    Venus was simply a rock star in taking us on a journey in finding just the right place. San Francisco can definitely be a daunting market to shop in. Not only did she find a great match in new construction for us with a newly built town home, we also appraised over the really good price she was able negotiate for us. Win-win!

  • Kitami B.

    Venus has exceptional customer service and a very professional yet friendly demeanor. I worked with her at a high profile Silicon Valley tech company account and she was very attentive and thorough in her work. Not only did she handle all of our needs immediately but did so with class, style, and efficiency. I highly recommend working with this individual!!!

  • Andy L.

    Venus is one of the most fabulous real estate agents in the area that I have met. I have had the opportunities to work with Venus on some clients in common. She is very passionate about helping clients find the right place at the right price and location. I can tell that she always cares very much about her clients and delivering top-notched quality of services, and has very good understanding and knowledge about SF bay area real estate market. After all, Venus has a very professional, friendly and approachable personality. It's definitely been a pleasure for me working together with her. She is also very well connected and has a strong list of contacts on hand to make sure her clients are best served. If you are looking to buy or sell real estate in the Bay Area, I would highly recommend Venus!

  • Tony F.

    Venus will work hard for her clients and friends. She is extremely gifted in sales, customer service, business development, market research, and professional networking. She has great insights in the best ways to conduct negotiations and always strives for the win-win situation of both parties. Having her involved with your transactions will bring a level of maturity, intelligence, and integrity that is lacking in the majority of professional relationships today.

    I had the pleasure of working with Venus on a recent event called Imagine Talks with over 300+ attendees. Our original venue was cancelled because of an unexpected maintenance issue and we needed to find a replacement as soon as possible otherwise we would have to cancel our event. Venus initially volunteered to be on board to secure sponsors for the event and when she found out that we lost our location, she immediately offered to help us find a new venue. With her great interpersonal communication, negotiation skills, and strong connection to the bay area community, she was able to secure a new venue for us within a couple of days. I was impressed with her diligence and passion to help us. Today I am not looking to invest yet but when I am, Venus will be my preferred real estate agent to work with. I know she will be able to negotiate with the buyer or the seller to get me the best deal possible.

From day one all the way through closing, Venus was committed to providing us with the highest level of care and expertise. She is very bright and an excellent communicator, making sure we were always comfortable and involved in each part of the process. She has dozens of excellent qualities which make her a perfect fit for the job and just a lovely person.

Venus knows and works with the best in the business. I really can't say enough good things! I am so happy and so thankful that Venus helped us every step of the way.
