About Jae Ng
DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY TO REAL ESTATE.
I grew up learning about San Francisco real estate. At a young age, I became fascinated with real estate and the opportunities that real estate could provide. I’ve managed multi-unit apartment buildings in the city, helping owners realize the potential of their properties by strategically increasing profits and resolving tenant issues. Since working in property management, I’ve brought my experience into real estate sales, helping people identify opportunities by creating property specific strategies to maximize on the potential.
WHAT ARE THREE WORDS YOUR CLIENTS WOULD USE TO DESCRIBE YOU?
Smart, strategic, resourceful.
WHAT MOST EXCITES YOU ABOUT YOUR WORK?
I love turning challenges to opportunities in order to maximize potential of a home. Every home is different and it’s always thrilling to improve and renovate a home to improve the flow and use for today’s lifestyle.
WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING?
Indoor rock climbing, running around the city with my dog, working with nonprofits and community groups, or spending time with friends and family.
WHAT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO GIVE UP?
Learning – I’m a lifelong learner and will always continue to educate myself and grow as an individual.
WHAT WAS THE HAPPIEST MOMENT IN YOUR LIFE?
Graduating with my MBA – That feeling of realizing a goal that I once thought was impossible.
I grew up in San Francisco’s sunny North Beach neighborhood. As a native, I am deeply connected to and appreciate the diversity, culture, and unique lifestyle that each neighborhood in this beautiful city has to offer.
At a very young age, I learned about San Francisco real estate from my real estate mentors – my parents and their real estate advisors. My favorite memories were tagging along while they conducted property tours and listening to their perspective and analysis of each property. I became fascinated with real estate when I realized its potential for opportunity and how the perfect home can change lives. This awareness drives my passion to help my clients achieve their dreams of owning a home or investment property.
I bring more than 8 years of real estate industry experience to my role as a San Francisco Broker and Realtor. My career began in property management and leasing in 2004, and I managed apartment buildings in North Beach, Laurel Heights, Nob Hill, and Russian Hill. I joined forces with Better Homes and Gardens/Mason McDuffie in 2011. Working with a successful company with a strong national brand allowed me to grow professionally and expand my horizons.
Whether you are a first-time buyer or you are adding a property to an established investment portfolio, I am here for you. I am flexible and available when you need to talk, whether it’s in person, over the phone, by email or text. My goal is to make each real estate transaction fun, easy, and enjoyable while providing value and exceptional service.
When not working I love going to Warriors basketball or Giants baseball games. You will also find me indoor rock climbing in the Mission or walking my dog in North Beach.
Feel free to contact me anytime regarding your real estate needs. I look forward to working with you!
Jae Ng's Testimonials
Jae is a true gem. She helped me find a wonderful apartment in Nob Hill, and after moving in and discovering that I preferred a different unit within the same building, she was super-accommodating and worked very hard to coordinate the transfer (which involved three different people’s timelines). For the 18 months that I lived in that spot, any request I had was immediately resolved. On top of that, Jae very-thoughtfully reached out to me whenever she saw updates in my life via LinkedIn–was completely unexpected and a lovely surprise. Thanks for all your help, Jae!

Wow, Jae is a great realtor! She really knows her stuff and was always available when I had questions. I’m the type of person that needs to get my questions answered asap. I love that I was able to communicate with her by call, text, or email. I have been looking for a place for over a year and with Jae’s help, I was able to find the perfect place! Go to Jae for all your real estate needs. She really is the best!!!
David Y., Buyer
If it wasn’t for Jae I’m not sure I would have been able to handle my first buying experience. She was with me every step of the way. I honestly felt like giving up but she was always positive and kept me motivated until I found the right place. Once I made the offer, she was extremely detail oriented and helpful. She has experience in every aspect of real estate which was essential because I was such a novice. My particular deal was a short sale so there were many complications. Jae was in it to win it and I am so thankful. Three months after the fact, Jae is still helping me with small post-sale details. I definitely recommend Jae, especially for first time buyers in San Francisco.

If you’re interested in buying a home but aren’t quite sure where to start, look no further than Jae! There are a lot of parts that go into the final decision of purchasing a home, and Jae will be there to walk you through each step. When I first started thinking of buying a home, Jae helped me set up a search filter, based on all the criteria I told her, and she sent me updates whenever a good match showed up on the market. When there were enough solid choices on the market, Jae went with me to visit all the properties and was incredibly knowledgable about the ins and outs of the neighborhoods, the price range, and the opportunities for investment potential. When I finally decided on a choice, Jae helped me come up with a competitive offer and guided me through all the paperwork. When it comes to real estate, there is a load of paperwork, but Jae never rushed any of it, taking her time to explain all the real estate jargon and legal terms. During the escrow process, Jae kept in touch constantly, providing friendly updates and just checking in to make sure I knew she was still keeping track of everything. When it comes to such a huge investment, it does wonders to know that someone has your back, and Jae certainly does. She goes out of her way to get you the best possible price and to help you get the home you want. With Jae’s help, I have closed on my home and am looking forward to the move — I would recommend Jae to anyone who is looking for an agent that will get the job done with quality, professionalism, and a great personality!

When looking for new homes, there are so many options: location, prices, size, age, school districts, and styles. Before I started working with Jae, the choices made it hard to know exactly what was the best fit. Jae helped me set up profiles of properties that narrowed down the list and then went with me to view all the properties. Jae’s assistance made it possible to locate specific properties and then to make the choices that were best for what I wanted. During the property tours, she provided insight into market value, location, background on the properties, and value. With Jae’s help, I was able to decide on a property and to put in an offer. Jae guided me through the entire process from submitting the offer all the way to the close of escrow. Throughout the homebuying process, Jae kept me entirely in the loop, updating me on any new information as it became available. She took all the time needed to go over the extensive paperwork needed, answering questions with a friendly smile. She made a point to be available for all the major steps, including inspections, signings, and final walk-through. She went out of her way to make the process as worry- and hassle-free as possible. I definitely recommend Jae for anyone looking into buying a home; she is professional, communicative, friendly, creative, and will get you the home you want. Now that Jae has helped me complete my purchase, she still keeps in contact and follows up to make sure everything is still going well. It is rare to find someone that is so invested into what she does, so if you want to find an agent that will put 100% into helping you find your new home, Jae is the person!
