Winnie has been working with us for over a year. She has been really patient with our inability to move fast and has been flexible enough to move when we needed her to!! She is very responsive and easy to work with.

Winnie went above and beyond to help us with our purchase. We were doing a 1031 exchange and had a short deadline to meet. She researched properties, gave us excellent advice and made the process less stressful. She knows her market well and is a savvy realtor. She is personable and easy to work with. We highly recommend her.

– Howard and Audrey Jai

It is our pleasure to recommend Winnie as a real estate agent. Winnie is not only personable but also technologically and made excellent use of the real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale. She did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. We found Winnie to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all text message, phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. We are pleased to recommend Winnie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

We have known Winnie Fok for over 10 years and can say she is the best real estate agent we have worked with. She has made 6 commercial and residential transactions for us over the years, and we plan to continue to work with her for all our transactions. She is funny, conscientious, hard-working and extremely knowledgeable about the market. She was able to help us obtain commercial and residential real estate in a very competitive market. Winnie is so personable that sellers love working with her. She is able to get inspections and designers out to the property quickly because of her connections. Title agents and mortgage lenders all know her and help make transactions go smoothly, even when we are out of town. Winnie doesn't end her job after the purchase. She follows through with all inspections and makes sure everything is repaired and in working order. And if there are any bumps in the road, she can smooth it over easily. We would not hesitate to recommend Winnie to any of our friends and family.

A dream home and a great friend I am so thrilled to share my house hunting experience in San Francisco with Winnie Fok of McGuire Real Estate. It was about three years ago, after dropping off our second son to college in mid-west , my wife and I felt we should establish a home in the Bay Area for ourselves and our kids. But my days at the Bay Area were numbered and I had to rush by to my job in Shanghai but luckily enough we run into Winnie....with virtually 3 and half days of exhausted research, actual open house visit and a lot of friendly discussion and debate we were able to land our dream home: a three bed room three bath condominium near the financial district in San Francisco! We had to attribute our luck to Winnie...in a very short time frame Winnie could pin down precisely our "key buying factors" and know exactly whose idea carries more weight in our decision making process. With her extensive knowledge of San Francisco market, she was able to pull in information of all the relevant properties in the market for us to screen and with her intimate familiarity of San Francisco neighborhood and understanding of our needs, we were able to focus on properties most likely we will be interested to take a serious look at and make serious decision. By combining those qualities Winnie brings to bear we moved in quickly , we were virtually mentally decided which one we want the most by the end of second day and started serious negotiation on Day three while still seriously looking into other opportunities . One thing I want to emphasis is that Winnie, in spite of her very outspoken and straight forward style, she never push us on anything.... she guide us , council us but never push us and that lead her to win our trust immensely . At the end of the day we not only bought a dream house on our budge by our time frame but also gained a terrific friend! My friends in Asia were so "envy" for getting such a terrific deal but after my explanation all they want was Winnie's phone number!!

I had the pleasure and good luck of working with McGuire's Winnie Fok in both selling and buying our home. Step by step she took us through the difficult and sometimes nerve wracking process of selling and then buying another home in the frantic San Francisco market. From assessing the market, staging our home for sale, and getting us through a complicated purchase of a tenant occupied single family home, Winnie took us through the entire process with honesty, integrity, and more than gave us her time and ear when we needed it. If you want a knowledgeable full service agent who really knows the market, is truly knowledgeable of Bay Area real estate, and is willing to spend the time it takes to close the sale to your satisfaction, for both buying and selling you can't do better than Winnie Fok of McGuire.
