Jacky from Cambridge...
"Hon, Thanks so much for helping me with my first home ever!! Also thanks for being so quick with responses and putting up with me!!
Nikki from Quincy...
"I would highly recommend Hon Shin as an outstanding Realtor who would go to great lengths to make your home buying process efficient and pleasurable!
Hon listened well, was attentive to our needs, our likes and dislikes. Even though my husband and I share different opinion on houses, he found the house that we both really liked. We didn’t feel rushed, nor were his opinions about each home we viewed anything less that 100% sincere. We were also so impressed with Hon’s availability. Emails were so promptly replied and so were the phone calls.
When we found the right home for our family, Hon helped us negotiate in favorable terms, close the deal, and was there to assist us until we had the keys in our hands.
Elaine from Cambridge...
"Hon is great. I was very impressed with how pro-active he was in helping us find the right home when I contacted him through his website on a property was interested in a few years ago. Our home search took a few years but he was extremely patient with us and helped us look around and looked for places that could possibly fit our needs. He gave great advice and was there every step of the way in assisting us in the home purchase. My husband and I felt extremely comfortable working with him because we find him to be trustworthy, honest and extremely efficient! Definitely recommend his services to anyone I know.

"저는 지난 달, Brookline 에 townhouse 를 신헌철씨를 통하여 구입하였습니다
신헌철씨는 젊지만 부동산에 대한 경험과 전문 지식이 아주 많고
최근 부동산시장의 동향을 잘 알아서 집을 찾는 동안 많이 배웠고
시종 친절하여 아주 만족합니다
더군다나 모든일을 신속, 정확하게 처리하여
집을 closing 할때까지 안심하고 여러문제들을 맞길수 있었고 쉽게 해결해 주었습니다
Closing 후에도 after- service가 좋아서 지금까지도 미비한점을 질문하며 감사하고 있습니다
이번 일을 통해 신헌철씨가 얼마나 정직하고 고객에게 열심이고 진실한지 탄복하여
모든 한인에게 좋은 분임을 추천합니다
Patrick from Woburn...
"I cannot speak highly enough of Hon. He was a pleasure to work with, gave us sound advice, helped us find the right home and navigate the buying process in about as pleasant a fashion as I can imagine.
Yi from Brighton...
"As a first-time homebuyer, I relied heavily on Hon’s professional knowledge and experience throughout my search of the best home within my desired location and price range. Working with Hon has made the entire home buying process clear and intelligible for me. He was always available by phone and quick in responding to emails throughout the process and even after closing. Overall, Hon has provided me with such a wonderful home buying experience in an amiable, honest and professional manner that I highly recommend his services to everyone I know.
Kevin from Malden...
"Despite being somewhat particular with the selection of our house (it took us 8 months to find the right one), at no point did we feel rushed by Hon to commit to something we weren’t comfortable with. He was always willing to show us potential properties, and gave us his honest opinion to protect our best interests.
We were also impressed with Hon’s willingness to always be available. Phone calls were almost always answered, and emails were replied to quickly.
Since we were first time home buyers, we relied heavily on Hon’s knowledge to guide us through the closing process. His referrals made it easy to select the correct people to complete the purchase.
Emily from Brighton...
"My review would be that you were very patient and friendly. You had great knowledge of the condo-buying process as well as the Boston area and demographics, helping me avoid picking a place in a bad neighborhood or full of noisy college students. You helped me get a place that is a perfect fit for me! You also made the stressful situation of buying a condo less stressful, as you (and the Vangaurd website) were extremely helpful! Thanks for everything and I will make sure to pass along your name!
David & Linda from Belmont...
"Dear Matt --
I'm writing to thank you and give my highest recommendation to one of your realtors, Hon Shin. We were attracted to Vanguard for the company's progressive no nonsense approach to marketing and selling our home. We appreciated the fact that you and Hon understood what our house meant to us right away, and that you put a lot of effort into finding buyers of like-minded taste to take ownership of a house we felt was special.
Day to day, month to month, Hon demonstrated a lot of tenacity, by sticking with a solid plan of showings, open houses and follow up calls to perspective buyers. Hon was efficient and followed through on everything he said he would do. We received feedback from neighbors who attended an open house that Hon's manner was attentive, yet not overbearing. He let people look around, was available to answer all and any questions, but didn't make anyone feel uncomfortable or under pressure. We feel this is the right approach in today's market, and Vanguard's progressive business strategies using today's most current technologies, keeps prospective buyers in the loop without the usual sales pressure that puts buyers off.
In closing, Linda and I agree, that we made the right choice in picking Vanguard as our real estate company. What's more, when we're ready to buy our new home, we'll be going back to Vanguard and you can bet we'll be asking for Hon Shin specifically.
David & Linda D."

"작년 12월 Vanguard Realty의 Hon Shin Agent를 통해서 Allston에 3 Unit House를 구입 했습니다.
약 7개월간 Mr. Shin과 함께 부동산 시장을 돌아보면서 느낀 점이 몇가지 있습니다.
1. 보스톤 지역 부동산 시장에 대한 정확한 분석과 예리한 상황판단을 하고 있었습니다.
2. 구매를 유도하거나 강하게 권유하여 고객을 불편하게 하는 경우가 전혀 없었፸
