When Jeff Wu began working in real estate more than 10 years ago, he had one guiding principle in mind, and that was to have a business centered on life balance. The philosophy was not only a personal one, but one that translates in his work as a real estate agent at Agent Knows Homes in Tyson’s Corner, Va.
“We work as a team to provide for the needs of our real estate clients,” said Jeff. “My goal is to minimize their stress and make it as easy as possible for my military buyers when they are purchasing their home. I have a lot of empathy for our military families because they do move so often, I really try hard to anticipate their needs. We even have a team of vendors that come together as a one stop shop for them!”
Jeff’s experience is in a variety of areas such as buying, selling, investing and managing residential properties. Jeff has a real passion for life. He also finds real joy in helping people.
With his varied experience and creativity, he was able to help a military family transition from Japan to the United States with ease and grace.
“When I previewed homes for them, I took along my camera and did a walking tour of the properties. I sent videos, negotiated the offer of one of the homes, and secured the contractors and home inspection. They flew in to settle having only seen the property twice. They are happy with where they live and have become good friends of mine,” said Jeff.
Jeff is dedicated to always focusing on education and communication. These are two areas that he knows are very important in any industry, and the real estate industry is no different.
Besides educating his clients, Jeff knows it is important for him to strive to constantly improve his education. That’s why Jeff earned his CRS, CIAS, SRES, E-Pro Designation, GRI Designation, CDPE, NAR’s Green Designation and his Virginia Broker’s License. Additionally, he completed the Certified Military Housing Specialist (CMHS) course.
“The course gave me a new perspective in working with military families. They are the foundation of our country,” said Jeff. “They protect our values and our way of life. I love serving them and doing whatever I can to make their transition as smooth as possible.
