Through a lot of doubt, indecisiveness and changes of mind I finally got the house in a location that I liked and with a price that I could afford.. All this thanks to Toan, my experienced realtor. Toan not only was very courteous, professional , knowledgeable , non pressured but also patient and calm . He went extra miles to explain the pros and cons of each property and left it up to me to decide He was punctual and answered my questions during off business hours and in the weekends. I see in him a real estate professional who puts the interest of his clients first. I definitely refer him to my family and friends. Haiti Less ... More

HARDWORKING (he doesn't stop 24/7), PASSIONATE (he can get down and dirty), EXPERIENCED (he will and has an answer to all your questions/concerns), REAL (he will give it to you straight up, like your best friend), with a HUGE HEART. He showed us homes on day 1-2. Put in an offer on day 3, which was immediately accepted. In escrow by day 7. He held our hands through the entire 1 month grueling process. We have so much respect and confidence in Toan, that it's beyond words.

Toan was our agent for over a year. He was persistent in finding us the perfect home. He was always there for us, my husband and me. He will work non-stop for you until you find that perfect home. He was absolutely a delight to work with and very knowledgeable in every aspect of the business. Always a professional and in the long run, I feel, became more than agent and client, we became good friends. If you want an agent to go that extra mile for you, I recommend that you hire Toan today. We moved into our new home on May 13th of this year and are delighted with our new home. Pam & Dave Taylor Less ... More

I was referred to Toan by a good friend. I'm so glad that Toan was there to guide me through the whole process from start to finish. He was patient, trustworthy and very responsive to all my questions and concerns. Toan is very professional, very knowledgeable about the real estate business, and his communication and negotation skills are excellent. Within week working with him, he was able to get seller's agent to accept my offer in this tought and competitive market.. I highly recommend Toan as your agent.

Toan has been a very inspiring figure in our lives. We started working with him after our previous two realtors had given up on us because of the state of the market. As first time buyers, Toan was very patient with our lack of system knowledge and always took the time to make sure we understood exactly what our decisions would mean in the end. Toan is very focused on details and is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to knowing how to get us a house. He clearly gained this knowledge in no small part due to his incredibly diligent work ethic. When we wanted to view a house he was always available, he typically showed up well before us to take notes and be ready to answer any questions we were going to have. He took notes on what we liked, he never recommended anything on our "no" list. Our experience could not have been better and we say. "thank you Toan for finding us our home". Less ... More

We had worked with two agents prior to meeting Toan. We started our house search in October 2012. And as of April, we had not had any offer accepted. What were we doing wrong? Our agent at the time seemed to have our best interest at heart, but she was dragging her feet on submitting out offers that once she finally did, they were already pending with another buyer. Toan was seriously a breath of fresh air. We met him the first week of April and we saw an immediate difference. His actions spoke for themselves. When I saw a home I wanted to check out, he responded within 5 mins of my notifying him and had the listing agent for that home on the phone getting us an appointment. When offers needed to be made, he would go to his car and print it out. He has a full office in the back seat of his car. He is proactive in getting responses. He is diligent in meeting deadlines and an incredible communicator to all parties involved. I highly recommend him for your next transaction. Less ... More

We started working with Toan as our buyer since May of 2012. This is our first home so we spent a long time to look for the right buyer agent to help us with our house hunting process. We?ve been very pleased with his professional service. Working with Toan makes every thing so easy as first time home buyers. From start to almost end(transaction in its final stages/waiting on tenants to vacate the property) of our buying process, he guides us through the whole process in every detail. It?s taking us quite long to find our home, but he?s still very patient to work with us and makes sure we find the right one. And most important of all, he always represents us in our best interests. He?s a very patient and sufficient agent. He is very responsive and always keeps us up-to-date during the transaction. We are always included in every correspondence so that we are clearly informed what stage we are in the process. We are glad we found him to represent us in this very important stage of our lives. And we sure will refer him to our family and friends with their real estate needs. Thanks Toan for your hard work and your kindness Less ... More

I assisted a friend with buying a home in the Mount Helix area of San Diego. We first contacted Toan on a simple internet search for buyer's agents. His professional and in-depth profile was impressive, and really stood out. After speaking with several other agents, we chose to go with Toan based on his positive personality, extensive knowledge of the area, and prompt correspondence. Buying a home for the first time, the top priority was finding an agent who would be very thorough, patient, and informative during the whole process. Toan really met and exceeded those expectations. He made us feel very comfortable during the search for a home, and when it came time to purchase. His communication skills are one of his best attributes. If you have purchased a home, you know that attention to emails and phone calls really do matter when there is a lot on the line, and Toan was always there to quickly answer questions and concerns promptly. Now that the purchase is complete, I am very happy we decided to go with him as our agent, and would certainly recommend him to others. Thanks Toan! Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
On August 15, 2012 Toan made an appointment for my wife and I to go visit some houses and the surrounding area in San Diego the next day, August 16th. We live in Visalia (which is about 260 miles away from San Diego) so we both took a day off of work for this trip to meet up with Toan. We agreed to meet at 1:30 PM. At about 11:00 AM my wife and I arrived in San Diego so we gave Toan a call to let him know we were early but we were still going to keep our appointment at 1:30 PM. Toan sent us a text message confirming that he would see us at 1:30 PM. At 1:30 PM we gave Toan a call to see where he was and he said he would be late by an hour! So we waited for him and at 2:45 PM we called him again but he didn?t answer his phone. We were getting very frustrated at this point, not knowing what was going on with Toan and not being able to contact him. So, after wasting an entire day and getting nothing done, we decided to go home. While we were driving back home, his mom gave us a call to apologize to us about her son?s poor work ethic (I don?t even know his mom). Later that night, when we were already home, Toan sent me an email apologizing for what happened and he offered to make amends with me by sending me a $150 gas card if I provided him my address. So I emailed him my address, expecting him to keep his word but to this day I still have not received anything from him and I have not heard a single word from him. Its not that I need the $150 gas card badly, I just think that an honest person should keep their word. Toan was not able to keep our appointment like he had promised and he has not sent me the gas card that he promised. I don?t see how anyone would trust him with such a major decision as buying a house, he treats this as a joke. I would recommend you to stay away from Toan if you are serious about buying a house.

I would like to offer my general opinion of Mr. Nguyen as it pertains to my wife and I during the purchase process of our particular Oceanside property. To begin, Mr. Nguyen is very professional, very knowledgeable, and certainly more than competent in his capacity as a property agent. In fact, in my years of experience on the consumer side of real estate business, I can honestly say Keller Williams has a real valuable asset in this person. He went above and beyond our expectations and his obligations on numerous occasions during all phases of the purchase and escrow process. Beyond that, he has been instrumental in helping us find people to accomplish improvements to this same property long after his obligation as our agent. In short, Mr. Nguyen is an asset to the Keller Williams agency, an impeccable resource for clients in every regard and conducts all of his business with the utmost honesty and integrity. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him and hope to again in the near future. Thank you for your attention... Bruce Helton and Jo G. Less ... More

Toan was very responsive to our needs as this was a first home purchase for our son. There were some frustrating moments during the escrow period on our part but he was able to hold everything together. His referrals for various inspections during the escrow process were timely which helped to facilitate a short escrow period. Toan is a tireless worker as he was able to work around our schedule to complete the purchase process. We would highly recommend Toan to anyone looking to purchase or sell property.

If you're looking for an agent that will go over and beyond, and has the knowledge and skills of today's market - Toan is the agent you are looking for. He works very hard to get his client's what they want - and is very upfront and honest. He is very experienced and is competent in structural details of homes (definitely gives you an upper hand having him on your side). When we first contacted Toan, we wanted to see a home right away. He was in Oceanside that morning, and met us in central San Diego that evening - with lots of time to look at the home we had seen on a listing. He doesn't waste time. He has a mobile office (literally) in his car, which cuts out a lot of time, especially if you need to get documents signed to put in offers on homes. He prints it out then and there - and you sign it! Simple, easy, efficient! Throughout our experience, we were always able to depend on Toan to follow through with his commitments. We highly recommend Toan as one of San Diego's great real estate agents! Less ... More

Our Keller-Williams agent, Toan Nguyen, was extremely helpful and patient with us during our home purchase process. Because he holds a C-36 plumbing contractors? license, Toan was able to tell us a wealth of information regarding the construction and plumbing of all the homes we saw. He was keen at understanding us and our needs, even when we didn?t say explicitly what we were looking for, and he had a great instinct to pick up on the details in a home that were important to us. Because of Toan, we found our new home. We had been searching for a few months, and all the while Toan was incredibly patient. Each home he saw he considered whether it was right for us, and we developed a very trusting relationship with him during our home purchase process. He was working with us and another party that was funding the transaction, and this created a few additional issues during the home search and offer-writing process. However, he went above and beyond to help us write offers, and eventually get one accepted. One morning, he saw a listing for a home that he believed would suit our needs, so he went out to preview it. When he found it fit all our needs perfectly, he called us immediately, while at the same time communicating to the seller?s agent that we would be the ideal purchasers. In escrow, we encountered additional obstacles, and Toan walked us and the other people involved through resolving all the problems that arose during this last phase of the home purchase process. The seller?s choice of escrow company, the lack of information provided to the sellers, and delays of the listing agent to act on our offer all presented themselves ? but none of them tripped Toan up. He coached the listing agent, involved their broker to secure resolution of the situation, ensured that the purchase and sell agreement was upheld, and in the end we happily closed on the property. We are so thrilled to have developed a great friendship with our realtor! Less ... More

Upon our entering the market in search for a home, we contacted two selling agents, one of which was Toan. It was immediately clear that Toan was our choice. Toan was surprisingly proactive. He immediately began educating us on all things real estate, from the lingo (contingent vs pending, mello roos, etc) to the process, to what red flags to avoid. In an industry that I believe is slow, archaic, and in desperate need of reinventing (think of what the internet did to the news industry), Toan is incredibly cutting edge and high energy, just perfect for any buyer that wants to be well-informed, fast acting, and in control. Somehow I always felt like we were his only client because he was so incredibly helpful, yet I knew he was delivering the same level of dedication to all his clients, buyers or sellers. I whole-heartedly endorse Toan. Anyone lucky enough to get him on your side will have a great real-estate experience. Less ... More

Toan puts his clients first making them feel as if their satisfaction is his top priority. We dreamed of owning a home in North County, San Diego, CA, for many years, but had very little luck on our own. Finally, we called Toan Nguyen regarding a listing and left a message requesting a return call. Toan called us shortly thereafter and the quest began. Early the next morning, Toan met us with a list of several properties that met the standards and requirements discussed only a day earlier. As we visited each home, Toan noted what we did and did not like about different homes as we walked through. Before leaving each home, Toan asked both my husband and me to share our specific likes and dislikes adjusting prospective homes accordingly. The home that we finally chose, our home, was a short sale that satisfied all of our needs. Toan went to great lengths to explain the meaning of "short sale." As Toan drafted bids, proposals, and contracts,he led us through each step of the short sale process with alacrity. Toan was an excellent advocate as he interfaced with other agents, current homeowners, and lending institutions. Toan Nguyen was a true professional in both appearance and action as he closed the deal making our dream a reality. I would highly recommend Toan Nguyen and would seek him out for any future real estate endeavors. Toan Nguyen is always in time and on time and we thank him for it. Less ... More

With dueling laptops, my Hubby and I began our out of state relocation home search. He called 2 agents and I called Toan Nguyen. Toan was the highlighted agent on the listing I viewed. He responded quickly, within 15 minutes, letting me know that he received my call. He was in the middled of something but would call me back at a designated time. My Hubby?s agents returned his call soon after but not nearly as quick as Toan. Toan called at the designated time but I forgot our time difference and missed his call. My fault completely. When we did connect we spoke in depth (for approx. 45 minutes) regarding our needs, wants, price point, time line and interested neighborhoods. It was like an interview. We were building a relationship. I was impressed with his technique right off the bat. It was just like I would have done, so one could return the next point of contact with as much related info as possible. My Hubby?s 2 agents only spoke with him for several minutes. Toan set me up with an auto email notification with our specs. My Hubby?s agents also set up auto listing. I was excited to see the first email with all the listings that fit my parameters. Hubby?s received his auto emails, but the listings did not fit much of our needs and/or wants. Guess who we chose to represent us? Yep, Toan! In this economy with all the changes in the banking and real estate system, purchasing or selling a home seems quite daunting. Takes a knowledgeable agent that understands the business and the area. I was impressed on how quickly we prepared utilizing many forms of media (phone, text, email) to prep for my first visit to Oceanside to get as much viewed and done during my short visit. Our first meeting, I found Toan to be professional and personable. Our personalities meshed well. On our home tour, Toan was perceptive and quickly picked up on my comments and my reactions to likes and dislikes. He processed that info to fine tune prospective listings to view so not to waste time and effort. Very efficient. Toan has a strong background in plumbing and construction. I appreciated his ability to identify details that would be easily missed or not even acknowledged by other agents. I was confident that I was working with an agent of character and honesty, with a broad knowledge base. With Toan?s exceptional assistance I was able to find a couple homes that closely fits my needs and wants. We proceeded with processing pre-quals with his responsive and competent team. Toan worked with me to understand and clarify the process each step of the way. He has a creative thought process and utilizes his own brand of negotiation skills. I trust that Toan has my best interests at heart. Although at this point neither home has worked out as planned, by no fault of Toan. Since our first meeting we have updated our parameters which I am sure put a wrench in the process. My Hubby and I believe we will find the home that fits our needs and wants as we continue to work closely with Toan. Toan?s honesty, patience, kindness, concern, motivation, determination and strong work ethics paired with his broad base of knowledge makes him the agent we want to work with and highly recommend to others for a positive experience and success.

I happened to be referred to Toan through a web ad, and immediately noticed the difference. He not only has excellent knowledge in real estate purchasing and selling, but also works very hard around the clock with instant response/update, and his negotiation skill is rare to find. He listens well to know exactly what you want, and gives excellent advice. I highly recommend Toan if you are looking to buy a home, or just seeking advice in real estate.

Toan Nguyen was extremely efficient and helpful in our quest to buy our first home. The time between our initial contact with Toan to contract acceptance on our first choice property was only 15 days. Toan possessed an extensive amount of construction and property knowledge, and was able to point out positive and negative aspects of the properties that might have otherwise gone unnoticed. Toan was able to meet our questions with a level of responsiveness that exceeded our expectations, and maintained a polite and inclusive demeanor when dealing with our families. Toan payed attention to our desired price range and what we wanted to find in a property, and was able to find us several homes that we were seriously interested in purchasing. Toan was able to assist us with shopping for a competitive loan, and never pressured us to look at houses that we did not consider affordable. We were able to acquire our first choice home thanks to Toan writing a non-overpriced FHA financed contract that surpassed 15 previous perspective offers on the property. We also placed three other offers on less desirable properties, and received counter offers that we declined. We greatly appreciate his hard work, and would recommend his services to anyone! Less ...

From when we first met Toan Nguyen, he has been nothing but extremely helpful in our tireless hunt for a place we can call home in the areas of Chula Vista and San Diego. Toan is extremely patient, knowledgeable and experienced in both fields of construction and real estate, he is super friendly, professional and consistent. He regularly sends us via email, listings of homes that matches our search criteria. With a family of 4, there has been times where we could not get on the computer untill days end. We have noticed by that time, there has been listings that have made it on the market and within 26 minutes became "contingent". In working with Toan, he knows what properties fit our extensive search criteria and notifies us immediately so that we can make arrangements in viewing the home. He is always there for us even in times where we could only come early in the morning before work or late in the day after work. Not to mention, he has made time for us even during the weekend. This probably goes without saying, but viewing homes with children can be very daunting, however with Toan this was never an issue. Every phone call, text message and email was answered in a expeditious manner as if he knew we would be contacting him and was ready to respond. Best part of all, when he was not able to respond right away, he would acknowledge our text/email/phone call and then inform us that he would get right back to us. We continually appreciate his efforts and his over the top extra service and support. You won't be disappointed with Toan... he's a very competent and trustworthy. I almost forgot to mention why working with Toan was such a great experience. He never made us run across town and waste gas nor fight traffic just to sign documents. He has mentioned the use of a digital signature service, however we found out there were bank's that did not allow for a digital signature. This is where having his moving office came in handy. I can't say enough about our agent and now good friend, Toan Nguyen!!! Highly recommend to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home in San Diego. Less ... More

Toan has without question exhibited an incredible first impression to this first time home buyer. He provided me options and offers and was incredibly receptive to properties that I was interested in. Toan took into account my self established financial boundaries and has been able to view comparable properties with my family and myself on my time and schedule. His response time is incredible- all inquiries I had pertaining to a process that is undoubtedly daunting and intimidating were answered by Toan in a perspective that I was able to understand.

In a sea of fly by night real estate agents you never know what you are going to get? I found Toan to be highly motivated and knowledgeable with both the sale and purchasing of a new home. He was very detail orientated with floor plans from heating systems to plumbing. He was very familiar with the neighborhoods we were interested in, he had invaluable information about things like schools, tax rates, and public transportation systems, and very knowledgeable about going mortgage rates. Finally, Toan was able to discern and be sensitive to our needs during what may be an uncertain time. Buying and selling a home in this market with these financial times can be very scary! Toan listens and understands your concerns. He is an agent who goes above and beyond the call of duty. I felt like I was working with family and not a company! Along with all of his great intuition about property and people he is an awesome negotiator and will work to get you the best deal possible. I would use over and over again. -- Less ... More

Is a very good and trustworthy Real Estate agent. Doesn't pressure you in anyway and always looking out for the welfare of his client. If he doesn't have the answer he gets you the answer you need as soon as he can.
