"When my wife and I were looking for a rental property manager for our Sunnyvale property recently, we interviewed a few management companies and ultimately we decided to go with Karen Xu and Astute Reality because of their speed to action, attention to details, and most importantly, their astute understanding of our needs.  From the moment we handed Karen the keys to the house, she and her team were able to quickly clean and stage the place for showing within 24 hours!  And then, much to our delight, Karen and her team were able to background check prospective tenants and helped us lock down on the eventual tenants - all in less than two weeks!  We cannot be any happier with the wonderful services provided by Karen and Carine, as they far exceeded our expectations.  We would be super delighted to recommend their services to anyone looking for reliable and trustworthy property managers."Ku L.

We have been relying on Astute Reality to purchase and lease out our unit for over a year now. The team is very professional and took care of everything for us without any hazzel. I would recommend them to any friends and family who needs help in buying, selling, and managing their property without any hesitation.

Carine and Karen have been great property managers. Anytime we had any questions or needs they responded quickly to resolve the situation and were both very friendly in all of our interactions with them. We’d definitely recommend them.”

My name is Barkat. 

 

Karen Xu of Astute Realty was my real estate agent when I was a first time home buyer in San Jose. She was professional and knowledgeable with her work, and guided me quite well in the process of home buying. She was very patient with me while I searched for a house for more than six months. She genuinely cares about helping her client save money. Karen often suggested to me to go for a fixer upper, that would have saved me a huge amount, even though that would have meant a lower commission for her. But, being a first time home buyer, and a full time engineer in the tech industry, I was short on time, and wasn't sure that I would be able to accomplish fixing a house, so, I decided to go for a move-in ready house. Karen finally found a move-in ready house that I really liked, and helped make the entire home buying process smooth and hassle-free.

 

A few years ago, I had to move to southern California for work and family reasons. I moved out of my San Jose home and entrusted the keys to Karen. The house became my investment property. 

 

Since then, Karen and her team at Astute Realty has been taking care of the property as managers, and I have never had any worries or trouble with either maintenance of the property or the tenants. From screening the right tenant, to looking after the tenant's maintenance requests, Karen and her team have been on top of things. 

 

I get regular monthly statements for expenses and rent deposits. At the year end, or in early January, I get a consolidated yearly statement from Karen's team that helps me complete my tax returns on time.

 

I have never had to drive up to San Jose from southern California to take care of the property. From dealing with landscaping, to fixing a broken fence, to doing a six-monthly walk-through in the property, all is taken care of by Karen and her team. I am happy that they are looking after my property.

 

I would definitely recommend Karen Xu and her team, both as property managers, as well as real estate agents.”

ASTUTE DECISION

Why not strive to make better decisions when buying or selling a home? The idea behind Astute Realty is to empower consumers who are buying or selling. Better decision making results in better results, such as saving money where possible, or earning higher profit.

This is the mission of Astute Realty, to ensure that our clients become Astute Buyers and Astute Sellers.

Astute is not one company but a conglomeration of many professionals dedicated to serving you in the most business-like manner and adhering to the highest standards of conduct. The scope of selling your home is similar to orchestrating a Broadway production in the range of services needed at this time.

Our affiliated businesses include Title Companies, Mortgage Brokerages, Attorneys, General Contractors, Building and Property Inspectors. From our strategic alliances, the services offered range from cleaning services to Landscaping, to the staging and marketing of a home. Any and all services you can imagine needing are available, including estate sales and the people who help de-clutter a home.

This is the way to do it right – the Astute Way. You have a day job, you don’t need to produce a Broadway show. You need a realtor.
