Dear prospective home seller or buyer:

It is our immense pleasure to recommend Hui Sefton as a real estate agent as you are searching for the ideal home for your unique situation.

Five years ago Hui helped us to own a very nice house in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood. Our little boy spent his happy and unforgettable first 5 years there.

At the end of February 2015 we decided to sell our house and to move for the best school district. Three months later at the end of May we owned a new beautiful house again in highly competitive Palo Alto. It was just ONLY 3 months from making a decision of selling house our house to owning a new house. It is unbelievable. Hui made it happen!

Hui managed to sell our old house for an excellent price. She knows Silicon Valley like the back of her hand. There is nothing that escapes Hui’s attention when it comes to property for sale.

Hui knew our specific needs in a new single family home in Palo Alto as well as our budgetary limitations.  She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of communication skills. A master with the contract negotiations, Hui came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well, especially in the current super-hot sellers’ market.

Every day was a great and pleasureable experience to work with Hui. Throughout the entire process of selling and buying Hui was professional, conscientious, and motivated.  We always felt as though we were her only client.

I recommended Hui’s services to my colleagues and friends in last five years with great success. Again we strongly recommend the services of Hui to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Dear prospective home seller or buyer;


We'd like to offer our complete recommendation of Hui Sefton to represent you on your real estate transaction.  Hui recently acted as both our seller's agent and buyer's agent in our move from Palmia to Los Gatos.  She was extremely responsive to our needs, and kept our entire real estate transactions on a rapid pace, despite the challenges in the real estate market.   Here are a few examples of the services she provided:


·        Consulted with us on the offer to buy our dream home and advised us on how to win a multiple offer situation, while still paying significantly less than the original asking price.


·        Advised and supported us on the resolution of a tricky contingency issue and follow-up addendums that needed to be negotiated after the acceptance of the original offer.


·        Listed and marketed our house with back-to-back weekends of open houses.


·        Brought us a good offer from a buyer she’d already been showing homes to in our Palmia neighborhood.  The offer came in perfect timing, on the day our final addendums were accepted with the home we were buying.


·        Referred us to a network of contractors, inspectors, and carpet installers who did good work on both of our homes.


·        Ensured that our buying and selling processes were kept on track, over evenings and weekends, as necessary.


We can say with complete confidence that Hui Sefton is an excellent

agent, and someone who you can trust to sell or buy a new home.

To Whom It May Concern:


I am writing this letter on behalf or Hui Sefton of Referral Realty.


Due to a new job opportunity, my family relocated from San Jose, CA to Minneapolis, MN. When it came time to put our house on the market, we chose to do so with Hui Sefton for a couple of reasons.


First, she had sold more homes in our development, Palmia, than all other agents combined. It seemed like every time a house went up for sale, Hui was the agent.

Second, it seemed as if her inventory moved quite a bit quicker than ones listed under other agents.


Once we began working with her, we could not have been happier. Hui quickly helped us identify some minor things about our home that could be made more attractive to potential buyers and facilitated the process immediately by contacting her “finishing work” team of people. In a very short period of time, our home was on the market at a premium value and our asking price met within 2 weeks.


Throughout the entire relationship, Hui bent over backwards to make the sale of our home easy for us. Because I was traveling back and forth to Minneapolis during that time, my wife handled the majority of things that needed to be addressed. Throughout the process, Hui was nothing less than a true real estate professional: honest, positive, supportive, responsive, aggressive and a skilled negotiator.


If we are ever in a position to sell a home in Northern California again, we will be making one phone call only: Hui Sefton at Referral Realty.

Dear Hui:


It is just a brief acknowledgement, from us, of how happy we are on our house purchased in February. We are very happy and it was our pleasure working with you. Your great professional, efficient, and dedicated help made the complicated house hunting and buying processes very easy and smooth.


You understood thoroughly our goals and provided valuable information and professional suggestions, which helped establishing the right choice. You explained all the steps and made the complicated process, from setting up viewings, providing information, to scheduling appraisal, inspections and even for loans, very easy. Your professional knowledge left us feeling peace of mind and secure through the entire process. We felt that you truly valued our best interests and worked hard, with wisdom, to accomplish the best solution possible.


We will not hesitate recommending you to any of our friends when it comes to real estate consultation and service.


Thank you again for your help.

Hui, you were a pleasure to work with and I appreciate all the work you have put into helping us sell our home in such a bad market.  You showed your dedication to us and were very willing to help us get the most out of the sale.   You were very professional, patient and made yourself available at all hours of the day/night and your knowledge of the market was very good.  Even your references for inexpensive labor helped us to save money.

To whom it may concern,


Hui is very professional and helpful. She is also patient and listens to what we need and requested. She helped us search for homes for about half a year without any rush or impatience. Also, at the end of our purchase, we had some problems with the seller/seller agent about one repair which was agreed on. They tended to deny the responsibility and Hui helped out promptly and consistently while we were on vacation and won the battle. So I'd say, yes, you can trust her in your housing hunting or selling!

As first-time home buyers, my wife and I had plenty of questions and Hui was always there to quickly respond and to help guide us through our search. She provided excellent insight and guidance, and once we found a home we liked, assisted us in placing a competitive offer and even followed through to insure we were always aware its status. Once our offer was accepted, she provided contacts to help us inspect our home, helped overcome the unseen hurdles we encountered, and even helped co-ordinate with our mortgage lender. My wife and I were exceptionally pleased with Hui and would heartily recommend her.

We are writing to express our pleasure with real estate agent Hui Sefton, who represented us in our recent purchase of a condo home in Rivermark.


Hui guided us through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for houses to making the offer and closing the deal. Helped us round the clock while searching the homes. We credit Hui with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience. Hui is very knowledgeable in preparing the legal documents and working with loan officers, other real estate brokers in achieving the goal in timely manner.


This is our 2nd purchase of property, and never had such a pleasurable experience. Hui is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. We never could have gotten our dream home without her. Hui’s professionalism and integrity helped in making this transaction pretty smooth and hassle free. We have 2 more transactions to make and we are sure that she will help us and will be a smooth process.

To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Hui and her expertise and we recommend her to everyone.

Hui was an absolute pleasure to work with in the recent sale of our home. She is friendly, easy to work with, dedicated, very knowledgeable about the market and the utmost professional. When we first spoke about working together, she was extremely prepared for our first meeting about market details, very clear on the excellent services she provided and spent a great deal of time understanding my priorities in selling our home. During the selling process I was kept up to date on all details and she always responded promptly and completely to any and all requests. The sale of our house went very smoothly and Hui always represented our interests with integrity, candor and priority. I would not hesitate to recommend Hui for your real estate needs.

I have been working with several agents in the past 15 years for purchasing several properties. I consider Hui the most professional who always provides me key information I want in making decisions. Her experience in the South Bay Area is unparalleled. I have recommended her to several of my friends.










Hui was very well prepared with relevant marketing info when I met her the first time. Hui helped us sold our house within one week for the price very close to the listing price. Hui answered my calls and returned my emails day and night. The transaction went very smoothly and it was a pleasant experience. I will have Hui again for my next real estate transaction in Bay Area.


Louise Yeung





Hui was our trusted agent during February to May this year. She helped us to buy our house in the South Bay and then helped us to sell our house in San Jose. She is a very professional agent the best  I've ever met. She took care of everything and made everything go through smoothly, everybody involved in those two transactions, include ourselves were managed perfectly by Hui. We felt happy, because we believe we received very good value for her services and didn't encountered any problem caused the lack of legal protection. We were calling Hui very often and no matter day or night, she always gave us a very quick, thorough response and provided clear solutions.


Moreover the house we bought in the South Bay was not brand new, we needed to fix some problems and Hui even helped us to find contractors and other professionals that she works with to paint our house and conduct other repairs and they did a very good job. We thank her for her great service to us and the very smart advice she provided. We still remember she gave us complete attention when she worked with us and we felt like we were always her top priority.


Overall, we would say Hui is not only a highly trustworthy, efficient and responsible agent, but also an enthusiastic lady with very good personality. We were very lucky to meet her and have her as our agent.  We would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone buying and selling their home as we did!

I would like to thank you for the quick sale of my property, less than 10 days on the market, and for your professionalism and quick response to my questions at all hours of the day and evening.  The sale closed quickly and efficiently with no surprises.  Issues brought up by the buyer, minor foundation repairs, were handled quickly and in a cost effective manner by contractors you were able to put me in contact with. 


Thanks for all your efforts on my behalf and for making the real estate transaction proceed smoothly while looking out for my interests and getting a price above asking  in a slowing marketplace.  I would heartily recommend your services to anyone looking for a real estate professional with integrity and a service oriented attitude.


Gil Johnson



Hui was my property manager before we signed her as real estate agent to sell our house.  She was very professional and she always tried to do what is best for us with everything going on. She suggested what needed to be done to present the house for sale in the best light. She worked really hard in getting house ready for the open house in a short time. She priced the house correctly and reacted to changing market dynamics. She advertised the house well and ran open house herself and it worked beautifully. She was aggressive, efficient, and appropriate in her dealings with offers.


Hui is also highly personable with an engaging personality. I would highly recommend Hui to other sellers (and to buyers as well).
