We just bought our second home with Amar and his team and we continue to be amazed by the superlative results Amar and his team produce. We were undecided about buying another home as we were in the 3rd trimester, expecting our second child. As many people in the Bay Area will tell you, it can take months, if not years, to find a home in this market. However, after discussing our situation with Amar, we decided to forge ahead, simply because of our confidence and trust in him. Amar will only recommend options that are in his client’s best interest. He treats every negotiation, every deal, as if it were his own. It is extremely rare to find a person who has so many talents. Not only is he a master negotiator and executioner but he is an extremely good person – honest, reliable and ever-ready to go out of his way to get his clients the maximum value. For the home that we just purchased in a top school area in Milpitas, Amar and his team did their magic, again. They and-held us through the entire process – from finding the right location to shielding us when our bank faced delays to closing the escrow process seamlessly. Not only did we win the offer when there were competing higher offers with more than $10K differential but our offer on a great home was accepted within 2 weeks of starting our home search. Moreover, the seller paid $5K towards our closing costs. Simply mind-blowing! A true testimony to Amar’s skills are the way he handled our need to ask for an extension on the escrow closing date due to a delay in our bank’s processing. We really don’t know how Amar managed it, but in just one day we received approval from the seller to extend the escrow closing date, by 2 weeks, without any penalties. Amar was very focussed on making sure we were completely stress-free. He wanted us to move into our new home and get settled in before our baby arrived. He went above and beyond for us, just like a family-member would. In this day and age, when many people are concerned about their own personal gains, it is truly our fortune that we have Amar on our side. We give Amar and his team our highest recommendation and wish that many more people get the fortunate experience of working with him. I am also including a quick summary of the our first home buying experience with Amar. We had an amazing experience and Amar’s strategy and execution was just superlative. My husband and I started looking for homes with Amar in July 2012, in an extremely competitive market. With low inventory, good homes were going way over the asking price. It was tough find a nice home, with a good school district within a modest budget. It was in this environment, that too in less than two months, that Amar closed on our IDEAL home. He won the property before the offer deadline at $35K below the amount we had authorized him to quote in the offer. In addition, Amar negotiated over $8K towards closing costs from the seller and the lender. Our deal was a HUGE home run!.

We met Amar through our close friends, who had lot to say about his excellent team and meticulous professionalism . Now we totally agree with them, I like to refer Amar and his team as team ‘Magic’. They are definitely the best agents I have worked with. From the very start working with Amar, Sri and Narayan was a breeze. They not only helped us in picking up properties and also went lengths in checking out their financial as well as functional aspects. Once we liked the property, Amar worked his magic. What seemed like a tough negotiation, actually went in our favor and we got the home. I have already recommended Amar to all our friends and would love to work with them again in future.

We are repeated home buyers with Amar and Sri, and working with them again is sufficient proof for how happy we are with the team. Having worked with multiple real estate agents both for investment properties and our primary home, I am always amazed my Amar and teams ability to make the deal happen. Amar and team is outstanding in their ability to move fast and put the perfect offer, follow up with excellent negotiations with the sellers agent, and get the property under contract in shortest possible time. In a fast moving real estate market like bay area, his excellent negotiation skill and impeccable execution will help you to get you the house.

Dear Amar, Sri, I am writing this letter to thank you for your hard work you both have put together in getting our first home. Buying a home is not like buying a car, where you go to showroom, select the model, negotiate the rate and drive home. Home buying is much more complicated and laborous, however, you made it so easy that it was like buying a car. Here are some of the points, I would like to highlight: In our first converstation over email, you introduced me to loan officer. That itself was a big milestone towards home buying. Your help there was really great. Sri understood our home requirements. She asked all right questions to find best matches and she did it. All of the properties she shared with us were meeting our expectation. Within 2 weeks (unbelievable), we were able to find our dream home. I have heard people spent months and months to find the right home. Once we finalized on the property, you were really fast in preparing an offer, which sellers could not resist with your exceptional negotiation skills. The offer was accepted even before due date. You helped in getting it closed within 2 weeks smoothly, which is awesome. Because of both of you, now we are proud owners of a great property. Thanks again and wishing you best of luck. Keep doing good things and help people find their dream home. Best Regards, Bhuplesh & Shilpa

First of all, I want to start with a BIG THANK YOU note to Amar & Team for getting us a wonderful home. This was our first home buying experience and Amar and his team made it a pretty great one. Amar was the initiator and he explained to me how this whole process works and what his strategy is. Then, his wife “Sri” answered all queries and gave all the necessary timely suggestions. Once we liked the home, “Sri” also visited the home and provided more detailed information about the home. Amar meanwhile was personally involved in all the aspects and collaborated very well to get the disclosures, inspections and reviewed them with me in detail. Amar and Sri worked on the offer price which would win us the home and submitted an offer. Amar worked hard to win this. Once the offer was accepted, Amar and Sri walked through the next steps always ahead of time, starting from Loan, Insurance, Escrow to Closure. We are very thankful to Amar and Sri, without them home buying process would not have been any easier. We definitely would recommend Amar, Sri and their team for anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home as they stayed top of every activity during the whole process for perfect execution.

My review for Amar & his team comes a little late but never the less straight from the heart. Considering our scenario/ our expectations/ our confinement of location /our budget, if it was any other Realtor® they would have straight refused to provide their service. But Amar & team took the Challenge. And that’s where we started with our journey with the home buying process. And I can very well say that they emerged Winners and in the deal getting the perfect abode we dreamt of. The very first meeting which we had with Amar, he came across as very Straight-Forward & Very Knowledgeable. With his expert insight, he gave us a brief idea of the real picture of the present trends and market information. It helped us to gauge and make realistic choices. So our home search began. A detailed insight of what we wanted in a home was taken into note irrespective of the several constraints we had. And I liked the fact that we were not imposed by their choices. We saw few homes pointed out by the team and we liked most of them. But then came the jackpot. When I saw the home listing which literally met all our criteria, I was excited. Amar when he realized that we were really interested, he reviewed the home in and out, top to bottom, made sure that the home had every-thing taken care of , discussed the future aspects for the property and then asked us to proceed. It was time to make an offer. And believe me, we got the offer approved even though we were 40k less than the other offer and on top the seller gave 5k towards the closing costs. I have to add that Amar has great negotiation skills which helped us achieving the house we wanted within our budget. But wait, the deal did not close yet. We had tough time getting through the loan process and believe me if it was not the Loan officer referred by Amar, we would never get the house we dreamt of. But with Amar’s patience, determination, diligence & right strategy we got the house. Overall we are very happy & satisfied with our home buying process with Amar & his team. We will be happy in recommending his services to one and all. Our family had a dream – But it was Amar who truly put his efforts in helping us realize it for us.

Amar and Sri helped us get our very first home and boy that was a great experience! They helped us get past the “first time home buying expectations” of everything being new and shiny to actually looking at the potential and real estate value of a house when we were house hunting. Amar was very patient with us and helped us to fully consider all similar options available. Once we decided to put an offer on this house, Amar and Sri helped us come to a price point which would give us the best chance of acceptance. Amar followed up with the seller agent all along after the offer was submitted. The sellers had some doubts about our financial situation given we had put the best offer possible and had not provided proof of additional funds to cover a situation like a low appraisal. Amar talked the seller’s agent through their doubts and assured them ours was the best and clean offer. Our offer was accepted in the first go! No counter offer, nothing! Amar has quite the negotiation skills! Well, as the sellers had feared, the appraisal from Bank Of America came in lower by about 40K. Additionally over the same weekend the interest rates on housing loans went up, putting us in a tough spot. If we decided to go with another appraisal with another bank, that would mean getting a higher rate of interest. We did decide to go with Wells Fargo. Our agent was Yogesh Rane, who by the way was amazing as well. He got us an appraisal and loan approval within 4 days! The appraisal came in at 5K above the selling price and we were relieved. Amar used this situation to re-negotiate the price with the sellers, all in the background and brought the selling price down by 20K! Bringing the price down in this hot seller’s market in the bay area is a feat only Amar could have pulled off. By the time we closed, we had already made 25K equity on the house! While the mortgage application was being processed, Amar was in constant communication and kept all the parties in the loop. Amar coordinated the whole process of escrow and closing. My wife and I had an amazing buying experience. We would love to work with Amar again if we are back in the market in the future.
