Thao Rogers (and her husband Dan who bakes great cookies as part of Thao’s “Good Client Relations” program!) has provided me with friendly, personal service in finding my current and previous rental homes in HCMC during the past 6 years. She found me what I wanted and negotiated everything directly with the landlords and is always available to assist me whenever necessary. Many of her satisfied expat home renter clients are my own clients too and we all value her dedicated service.

My husband and I recommend Thao Rogers and her company, Saigon Properties, with enthusiasm. Thanks to Graham Potter for referring Thao to us: we will be ever grateful. Since the two of us were doing volunteer work for three months in Ho Chi Minh City, we thought that it would be very difficult to find a nice, well located apartment with a short term lease that we could afford. But, within two days, Thao had us all set up in just the right place.
As others have written, Thao did all the communicating and negotiating on our behalf as our Vietnamese is almost non-existent. Thao and our landlady even helped us get out of our hotel quickly and into a temporary apartment until our actual apartment became available.
In the months since then, everything has been just as we agreed upon and better than we expected. Whenever we have needed to ask or explain anything complicated to our landlady, Thao has proven to be easy to contact and quick to follow through as our translator – and totally trustworthy.
We hope to return to Ho Chi Minh City in the near future. Before we even arrive back, we plan to contact Thao Rogers at Saigon Properties again to help us find a place to live.

We needed a property where it could be a branch office for our planning team, Saigon Properties listened to our specific requirements, and was able to find what we needed in a very short time.
Saigon Properties also helped with the complex negotiation and secured the space. I am sure Saigon Properties is a value-add to foreign companies, individuals with what they need.

Dear Property Seeker in Vietnam ,
May I take this opportunity to strongly recommend Saigon Properties for all your property requirements in Vietnam. Miss Thao owner of Saigon Properties is an expert in all fields and is very diligent and professional in all that she does. She and her company will provide you with a top class service not just prior to obtaining your requirement but with an excellent after sales service.

Saigon properties and Thao Rogers in particular have been very helpful during my time in HCMC. Thao found a suitable rental property for me very quickly and with minimum fuss, and all formalities were concluded quickly and efficiently. Thao has also generously acted as an interpreter for me with my landlord during the year, sometimes early in the morning or late at night, even coming to my house if necessary for which I am very grateful. I was very happy with the ease of my dealings with Saigon Properties throughout the year. Thanks Thao and Co.

A pipe broke at our house that Miss Thao found for us. We called the landlord. He didn’t want to be bothered. And he couldn’t speak English. We called Thao. She found us a plumber who came and fixed the problem at 9:00 PM.
We had no water and have two small children, it was a mess. But Miss Thao took care of it for us. She even found us a very good maid. She charged us nothing.
Now when there is a problem, finding a nanny, getting an electrician, or a reliable pool cleaner, we call Thao. Our landlord appreciates Miss Thao’s extra service too.
We have since returned home to Thailand. We will go back to Vietnam next year. We’ll call Miss Thao before leaving. She knows what we want and will take good care of us. And believe me, that’s a very difficult thing to find in Saigon. I can’t say enough kind things about Miss Thao. But in Vietnam, the best thing I can say for her is, I can trust her.
My name is Nick Alexander. I am the National Director for a non-profit organization called Habitat for Humanity in Vietnam. Thao Rogers of Saigon properties has assisted me both from a personal and professional standpoint over the past six months. She found a suitable house for our family within budget and within a very limited timeframe. Since then she has assisted us in acting as an intermediary in discussions with our landlord who we are unable to communicate with effectively as we do not possess Vietnamese language. Nothing, it seems, is ever too much trouble. Her support has been very important in assisting my family of 5 to settle in to what is a very different lifestyle here in Ho Chi Ming City. ON a professional level she is now assisting us to find a new office space. Being an NGO we have limited funds available for rent but she has gone about doing her best to find suitable premises within our existing parameters without complaint. As a result I continue to recommend Thao and Saigon properties to anybody that I meet that requires residential or commercial space. She clearly listens to her clients and responds specifically to the parameters they present her with. Having placed a person or business she then very clearly takes long term responsibility for the relationship with the landlord.
I wish Thao and Saigon properties all the best on the launch of their new company website.

We have worked with Saigon Properties since 2003 and always enjoy their services. They quickly find foreign tenants for our high class villas and houses and smoothly resolve problems if any arisen. Good customer care, excellent knowledge of the local market, quick understanding and handling clients’ needs…is what we can say about them.
Saigon Properties, it is highly appreciated and recommended!

My experience with Saigon Properties was very positive. Saigon Properties was a great help in getting me settled in Vietnam. I advised Thao of my requirements and location, and she came back to me with many good choices. She was very efficient and only presented me those properties that met my criteria. Thao and her team were very helpful from start to finish – from the property scouting to the contract negotiations to arranging for many services after moving into the property.

We have been retaining Mrs. Thao for her real estate services for several years. We can attest that her services are excellent; above all, her integrity and honesty are impeccable. We have complete confidence in her services.
Tim Dang & Vanessa Nguye, SaiGon Pearl apartment’s owner.
Thao Rogers is the most reliable, efficient and friendliest real estate agent I have ever met.
For the last 3 years she has been helping me in many ways.
She, of course, helped me to find a place to live (2 times) answering perfectly to my needs, in a quick period of time. Her professionalism, availability, patience and understanding make her very special and trustable.
Apart from her mission of real estate agent, she supports me as a friend. She is always present to give me advises, to arrange discussions and fix issues with my landlord but also to help me on personal aspects. This is not negligible when Vietnam is not your native country. For all the points mentioned above, I strongly recommend you to trust Thao and her husband Dan. They really worth it, on professional and personal aspects.
I will conclude on the fact that, if you decide to work with them, you may have the chance to taste Dan’s brownies…….You will never regret your choice, I am telling you!!

“Finding a great property management is like finding a great broker: Impossible”.
We bought our apartment at The Manor 1 in 2006, it was simple so we asked Thao- SaiGon Properties about renovating & decoration of our property to rent it to expats in Ho Chi Minh City. Thao gave us the reasonable quotation while another company charged more. Thao & her team did a great home decor to bring our apartment for rent in SaiGon real estate market. We loved it & our tenants did too.
I have been using and recommending SaiGon Properties Management, broker, home decor to ALL my friends and they are ALL satisfied and happy. The entire team is very responsive, highly professional and offers all options.
Happy /Peaceful /Gaining for everybody: The owner, the renter, the broker..

SaiGon Properties Management took great care of my Manor apartment when I am living in the state. Before I did not know SG Properties, I had reached out to other real estate agents as well but Thao and her team stood out as the most professional, responsive and knowledgeable about the real estate market in the city. I would definitely recommend them if you want your property is in good hands and your income keeps coming in your small account while you are overseas.

Living in a foreign country means having a temporary living base away from the town or house you are used to living in, but finding a safe and comfortable place is more difficult than you think.
I think that you can have a “home” where you can feel relieved if there is detailed support.
My coordinator, Ms. Thao, is very helpful because she immediately responds to detailed requests such as the light bulb is burned out, the air conditioner is out of order, and the Internet is not connected. Contact will be returned instantly and there will be no frustration.
Saigon Properties Service is a great way for foreigners to create an environment where they can have a “home” in Saigon
Our thank you is very overdue and for this I apologize. You are one of a kind. Thoroughly professional and delightful. You took us on at a time when we were very distressed- new in Vietnam and battling with a difficult and unreasonable landlord who wanted/demanded additional (illegal) payments from us, and my starting a new job. You not only helped us negotiate out of our lease and helped us calmly and warmly find a new home. All of the family felt at ease with you and welcomed your guidance. That was a year ago, and still we come to you for guidance and you never turn us away. You are truly a very special realtor. You helped us find a wonderful new landlord and a great apartment. You observed and you listened and then you made recommendations. You did this at a time when we were feeling distressed in a new country with absolutely no other support. We can never really thank you enough for what you have done, and do for us still to this day.
Heartfelt thank you.
With much gratitude.
Enrica, Paul, Amelia and Orlando.
