Client Testimonials

Uma Maheswara Rao Gangumalla | Principal Software Engineer at Cloudera April 1, 2021, Uma Maheswara Rao was a client of Amar -- Jun 2021

Dear Amar and Sri Amar,

We are incredibly thankful to you both for your extraordinary efforts in winning our house in a very tough competition. We realized that to win an offer needs deep knowledge in the market, connections, the right strategy, negotiation skills, and you are at the top in all of those aspects. Within two months, we could win the house, and that’s just my second offer.

We should highlight that Sri Amar helps explain and clarify all our doubts in the process. Right from winning the offer, you executed the plan quickly, and we never felt stressed anywhere in the process. Our strong recommendation to any of our friends is that, if you are serious about buying a house, don’t waste time. Just go to Amar. He will win your dream home for you.

Narayanan Suryanarayanan | Systems Engineering Manager June 2, 2021, Narayanan was a client of Amar -- Jun 2021

This dates back to 2015, and the bay area housing market was no different from 2021. It was crazy!! We were driving through a community in Milpitas near the foothills, and we liked it. My wife & I said to each other – the next time a house becomes available here, we should give it a shot! To our luck, a home came into the market the following week. We had read about Amar’s success stories before, and we reached out to Amar. It was one of our best decisions ever!!!

We visited the house over the weekend and just loved it. The house was beautiful, and naturally, several others loved it as well. Offers were scheduled to be reviewed by mid-week, and we had to make up our minds on the price.

While it was a crazy market, we didn’t want to overbid crazily. Amar & the team worked with us closely to come up with the right price. Amar had also figured that it would be a very competitive situation. He worked with one of the established banks to showcase our financial strength and negotiated for a very fast closing.

Amar also suggested we write a personal letter to the sellers describing why we love the house. There were 11 offers in total ( 3 cash), and Amar helped us win the house even though we had to take a loan. There was a ton of negotiation, and Amar knew exactly how to win the home. He mastered this process and knew how to execute it flawlessly.

Once all the process was over, our sellers shared with us that we won the house because 3 reasons: – Very competitive offer + backing from the bank – Very responsive Realtor (Amar). During the offer reviewing process, quick responses were required, and Amar responded in a matter of minutes every time. – Sellers were touched by our letter While our offer was accepted, there was plenty of work in the following weeks. Amar & the team were very methodical and had lined up everything. From the mortgage application to appraisal to Escrow to the final walk-through, they baby fed us the entire process, making it super easy.

Fast forward 6 years, Amar still gives a ring and checks in every once in a while. He shares the latest market updates and the do’s and doesn’t. Amar has not been a realtor but a fantastic real-estate partner to us.

Udhaya Rajeswari | Preschool Teacher at KinderCare Education May 31, 2021, Udhaya was a client of Amar -- May 2021

 

Great Thanks to Amar, Sri, and the Team

We have no words to express our gratitude to Sri and Amar, who helped us find our new home. We never imagined buying a home in this competitive market. Sri helped find us our new home. She helped us in every step and made us feel very comfortable in finding the best home. She cares about what’s best for us and feels like they are part of our family.

Regarding Amar, he was the one who helped us to make the closing process go smoothly. We just gave our offer price. That’s it. Amar and his team did the whole process, and we have nothing to worry about. Within 25 days, we got the keys. We have no pressure in finding our lender, or Home Insurance, or Home Warranty. Everything was taken care of by Amar’s team.

On the whole, both of them are honest, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly people. We have an excellent experience working with them. We highly recommend them to anyone who has any idea about buying a new home.

Subbu & Udhaya


 

Devaraj Kavali | Principal Member Of Technical Staff May 30, 2021, Devaraj was a client of Amar -- May 2021

 

I want to thank Amar and Sri for their efforts in helping us get the perfect home in a pleasant and right neighborhood with great schools. I want to share my wonderful experience working with Amar, Sri, and Amar’s team. We are first-time buyers. Amar helped us to win the first offer with the best deal. It was pleasant talking to Amar when we met the first time. He explained the process very clearly and the steps involved, and Amar and Team executed the perfect execution. Amar is a great negotiator. He went above and beyond negotiating with all stakeholders to get the best deal for us. He has developed the best strategy dynamically based on the situation on the offer day and made our dreams come true.

Amar has come up with different stages and timelines in the entire process. He flawlessly executed all the steps way before the timelines we have put upfront. Amar is involved in all the stages starting from loan pre-approval and underwriting, escrow, insurance, warranty, and closing. Sri has always been there, guiding us throughout the entire process, explaining all the aspects, and suggesting what is best for us. Amar connected to the team to get the loan approval, who promptly responded and provided the best interest rate in the market and excellent additional benefits with Amar’s influence. Amar helped to get the best insurance quotes and made us close the deal with less closing costs.

Amar and Sri are always available to guide us throughout the process and make the home buying process very smooth. I would highly recommend contacting Amar for a great home buying experience with the best deal.


 

Haritha Vinjam May 24, 2021, Kishore was a client of Amar -- May 2021

Our recent home selling experience was smooth and flawless due to Amar’s services and high-notch professionalism. Moving out of state, especially during these COVID times, Amar’s guidance and attitude to go the extra mile, starting from preparing the house all the way to closure, was commendable.
His timely and valuable suggestions on the upgrades and references to lots of great resources helped simplify the house preparation part a lot.
Once the house is prepared and handed over to Amar, we are entirely off hands and don’t have to deal with any unknowns or gotchas. This was critical for us as inexperienced home sellers.
Amar’s attention to the details during staging and the usage of advanced technologies in creating 3D view photos, floor plans, and other required documentation upfront helped provide more confidence to the buyers.
Most importantly, the offer was accepted and closed as planned with over $110K more than the listed price. Considering the last sale of a property in the neighborhood at a much lower value, the price we got is a giant leap forward. All this was possible only because of Amar’s extraordinary market reach and networking. I highly recommend Amar for all your real estate needs.

Parth S May 18, 2021, Parth was a client of Amar -- May 2021

Amar and Sri make a fantastic home buying team. Amar is an excellent negotiator and closer. Sri gives incredible insights into all things leading up to choosing a home. For first-time homebuyers, especially in a fast-paced market like the Bay Area, it was superb having both on our side. We felt confident in the home searching process. We still remember having thousands of questions that both answered truthfully with accurate data, hand-holding us all the way.
Amar was able to negotiate $40k worth of savings and discounts on our new construction home! Both Amar and Sri went above and beyond to get our home which checked all of our requirements. We are extremely grateful to have found them for finding and buying our first home!

Kshitija Pansare | Software Engineer at Google May 17, 2021, Kshitija was a client of Amar -- May 2021

 

Home buying in today’s market is a tremendous challenge – wherein you have to cross multiple obstacles like choosing the right home, location, competing in the markets, putting the offer, and more. Yet, once you win the offer, there is a long series of tasks leading up to you becoming homeowners. So it’s a super-sonic journey with many parameters to fall in place for you to be a homeowner.

This is where Amar, Sri, and his entire team come in as saviors. Amar and his team were recommended to us by our relatives. We had a very peaceful experience in crossing all these obstacles. Amar and his team are very professional and work in a very time-bound manner. They make sure that all the owners of each task execute their tasks on time as timing is very important in this home buying journey.

Amar and Sri have been in this industry for several years. They are very sure of what they need to do and ensure that we as clients have a successful, peaceful, and excellent home buying experience. I would highly recommend Amar and his team to any home buyer’s going forward!


 

Pramitha Nagaraj | SoC Design Engineer May 10, 2021, Pramitha  was a client of Amar -- May 2021

 

 “Always an engineer at heart, I appreciate it when expertise and well-defined processes followed in moving forward continuously, towards achieving an end goal. Amar and Sri did exactly that in our goal of hunting down a home. Right from engagement, I knew what the whole process was and the stakeholders for each milestone.

Milestones take much guesswork out of the already frustrating process of buying a home in the bay area. Our only job was to identify a place we like based on our preferences and priories as a buyer. Sri made sure that our home search was well directed by vetting suggestions and identifying potential areas to search.

After the sign-off, Amar works his magic, leveraging his years of experience, all the time maintaining an excellent feedback loop. Long story short, we got our offer accepted rather quickly without too many disappointments before the offer’s due date. It’s a terrific task in the bay area housing market.

I sincerely believe it was Amar & Sri’s experience that contributed to it. I can, without any doubt, recommend Amar & Sri in helping achieve anyone’s homeownership goals.”


 

Raghavendran Hanumantharau | Senior Director Software Engineering May 6, 2021, Raghavendran was a client of Amar -- May 2021

 

Hi Amar:

First of all, we’d like to thank you and Sri for your utmost professionalism and competency that helped us close our home. While we have been working with other realtors, the reason we chose you for our current property is (a) your strong recommendation by word-of-mouth from friends and family (b) your utmost rigor and structured way in executing the deal (c) your timely updates and (d) your expert market awareness.

Your due diligence in sharing the disclosures, painstakingly going through the disclosure documents page-by-page with us, walkthrough of every aspect of the property, representing our interests to the client in a timely manner, following all procedures and generating correct documentation despite the speed of execution etc. all helped us close the deal.

Thanks again for all your professionalism and support!


 

Saikat Kundu | Senior Technical Lead at Yahoo May 4, 2021, Saikat was a client of Amar -- May 2021

We decided to work with Amar after looking at his great reviews on Zillow. He exceeded all our expectations. We were proud homeowners within a month of our house search. As first-time home buyers, we had a lot of questions about the process, location, and price. Amar and Sri patiently answered all our questions. In the first meeting itself, Amar came up with a clear plan on handling the entire home buying process. He helped us understand that there are many aspects of the house that we need to look at other than appearance. In this market of multiple offers, getting the offer accepted is one of the most challenging things.

Sri helped us in getting quick appointments to tour the houses that we were interested in. When we informed Sri that we liked one of the houses, Amar went through all the inspection reports and disclosures to ensure no red flags and massive repair costs after buying the house. They provided their honest opinion on every property that we selected. Now comes the most challenging part of how much to offer for the home. Sri helped us a lot to suggest a price that will improve our chances of getting the offer accepted and ensure that it’s within our budget.

With multiple offers on the house, including cash offers, the seller was planning to go for counteroffers which could have raised the price of the house even higher. At one point, we already lost hope. But Amar was able to convince the seller’s agent that our offer was one of the best, and it was accepted. I don’t have words to thank Amar for his hard work and effort. Amar and Sri had been very friendly, responsive, and handheld us throughout the home buying process. We made the right decision to work with Amar and Sri.

Rishit Lakhani | Lead Staff Sales Engineer for SD-WAN March 28, 2021, Rishit was a client of Amar -- Mar 2021

We are so happy to write this review for Amar and Sri! We contacted Amar when we decided to buy the house, and we met in his office. Right away, we knew that he is the best realtor we have spoken to. He was very thorough in his process and explained to us all our options. We started seeing houses regularly, and Sri helped us understand the pros/cons of each of the houses.

Finally, within four weeks of our house search, we put an offer which got accepted! Not just that, he negotiated $48k below the listing price through his exceptional skills. I had never heard of a single-family house going below the listing price in the bay area. Still, Amar made it happen so that we don’t go beyond our budget. He also provided extraordinary support during the closing process.

We were first-time home buyers, so everything was new for us, so he gave us a step-by-step guide on what needs to be done. I don’t think we could have had a better experience anywhere else. Amar and Sri are genuinely the most honest and best realtors I have seen.

Thank you, Amar and Sri, for the WOW experience in our buying process. I hope to work with you again in buying or selling more houses.

Pavankumar Adiraju | Hardware Engineer at Barco March 16, 2021, Pavankumar was a client of Amar -- Mar 2021

Wow!!! Amar and Sri are the best realtors. I am a first-time home buyer in the bay area with minimal knowledge about the real estate market. I started off very vaguely with the budget being the priority.

First virtual meeting with Amar itself was very comfortable, he explained each step in detail, listened to what I needed, gave me pointers to what and how to decide about a property. Within a week we were able to get an awesome property in a good area, good neighborhood, good schools, and all this within our budget.

Amar and Sri were very active in closing every step on time and with absolute transparency. Amar and Sri are a great team who are honest and true professionals with a personal touch. They have good knowledge about the bay area and are experienced.

I would highly recommend Amar to everyone who is thinking of buying a home. If you want a peaceful, transparent, honest, and happy home buying experience Amar is the guy.

Thank you, Amar and Sri you made our own home dream come true.

Punna Reddy P | Sr CloudOps/Devops Engineer at Earnin March 12, 2021, Punna was a client of Amar -- Mar 2021

NIKITA SINHA | Sr Software Engineer February 25, 2021, NIKITA was a client of Amar -- Feb 2021

We want to thank Amar for all his help these past few months. His hard work helped us find our dream home, and we couldn’t be more grateful or excited about this next step in our journey. He is like our family now and his team is some of the most professional yet warm and friendly people we have met.
Amar always pleasantly surprised us with how he went above and beyond our expectations every step of the way in our home purchase process – from advising on the pros and cons of homes, locations, and neighborhoods to mitigating any concerns of the loan/title company to guiding us with the closing processes/steps. It felt like a one-stop-shop for the entire home buying journey which made our lives really easy and the process enjoyable.
The transparent communication and constant availability to answer all our questions any time of the day is something very rare to find. He is the best and we couldn’t have gotten our dream home without his expertise, guidance and support.

Vinod Gomathi Nayagam | Sr Software Engineer February 22, 2021, Vinod was a client of Amar -- Feb 2021

Our home buying experience with Amar and his team was extraordinary, not just once but twice. When we bought our first home six years back, Amar was able to get our first offer accepted in a highly competitive market with 15 other offers for the house. Amar and his team are very experienced, professional and perfect in closing the deals. We moved into our home precisely in 1.5 months after meeting Amar.
With the same confidence level, we talked to Amar two months back to search for our new home. As expected, he and his team did fantastic work, and we were able to close the deal on our new house last week before the home being on the market. It’s our first offer second time buying a home. Time and again, Amar proved his Agent networking and master deal making skills. We believe it’s an impossible task for any other Realtor® in the Bay area but not for Amar and the team.
Sri was regularly following up on updates and giving us first-hand information on all the properties we were looking for, thus saving us lot of our time and effort Though it’s not new for us, we were surprised by all of their pro-active measures. With Amar and his team’s help, we could get the house of our dream in a highly competitive market without any stress.
We highly recommend Amar, Sri, and his team for our friends and others looking to buy their dream home.

Buvana Anguchamy | SAP ABAP Developer at Nike February 10, 2021, Buvana was a client of Amar -- Feb 2021

We would like to express our gratitude for all the service Amar and Sri put together in our home buying journey. We were overwhelmed to know that our offer was getting picked for the first time. The effort and tireless follow up they do for their clients is unbelievable.
It was a streamlined process and so transparent in all the steps happening in the backend as well. They did a commendable job, Kudos to their team. We strongly feel that our home dream came true only because of Amar and Sri.
They both were there every time to answer all our doubts. More than being their client, we enjoyed their humble nature and friendly approach. They treated every single client with great respect and care, no matter if the client had bigger budget or lower budget. Would definitely say, they both hard to find personalities. Would love to recommend every single friend of ours to their service.
I wish them all success in their future endeavour as well.
Thank You Amar and Sri!

Sandeep Naidu Balaga | Software Engineer at Goldman Sachs February 6, 2021, Sandeep was a client of Amar -- Feb 2021

We got to know about Amar from one of our friends when we lost hopes in our house search. As first-time home buyers, we had several questions about the process, location, price, and many questions. I feel like we do not know the crucial things to look for in a house rather than the appearance.
Amar and Sri answered all the questions we had, put up a clear plan on how we tackle the home buying process and executed it very well. They provided their honest opinion on every property that we selected. It helped us a lot in making an informed decision to write an offer. Amar goes out of his way to get us the best possible deal, and our case is a sheer example.
Even though our offer was not accepted initially, Amar was very diligent in following up with Listing Agent. Amar acted quickly and accepted our offer as the first contract dissolved even though we were not the highest bidders. Amar and Sri had been extremely nice, responsive, and handheld us throughout the home buying process. We are pleased to make the right choice to work with them.

Durgamallesh Sunkara | Principal Data Architect January 30, 2021, Durgamallesh was a client of Amar -- Jan 2021

We got referred to Amar through a friend who had an enjoyable buying experience a couple of years ago. Ours was a complicated scenario as we wanted to sell our current home and then find a new one to buy. So, we needed a rent back and also had to find a home that meets our needs within this time frame.
To say that Amar did a great job with both selling and buying will be an understatement. He helped us sell the home during the holiday/COVID times and got our dream home in the first attempt. I have worked with different Realtors® before, but Amar & Sri handle things differently. Few things that stand out are:
1) Before you start the process, expectations are set on what everybody’s role is. So, there are no surprises.
2) Once you like a home, they will not leave any stone unturned until you get your offer accepted.
3) Amar’s attention to detail – a few minor tweaks made to our offer helped us win the offer during the last minute.
4) Amar has a great team working for you and supporting you through the whole buying and selling process. We are so happy to have worked with Amar and strongly recommend Amar and team for your housing needs.
Thanks

Ravi G | Data Engineer at First Tech Federal Credit Union January 26, 2021, Ravi was a client of Amar -- Jan 2021

We feel extremely happy to have worked with Amar and Sri Amar in the process of our 1st home purchase. Amar’s efficient execution and teamwork not only helped us close the deal at a great price, but also made sure that the entire process is smooth and timely despite the unexpected minor hiccups. We recently came to know that respective comps are selling for 100k more than what we have bought for.
A Special thanks to Sri Amar for being a wonderful guide:) From patiently listening to our preferences , she was extremely helpful, transparent, and reliable throughout and a great asset to Amar’s team. She is always available for a phone call for any queries/issues even after the purchase and provided us both professional and personal support. We Highly recommend Amar and his team for they made our 1st home buying experience so pleasant and successful.
The whole process with Amar and Sri Amar is just like dealing with the family.

Hansini Venkatesh | Lead Internal Auditor at Silicon Valley Bank January 11, 2021, Hansini was a client of Amar -- Jan 2021

Amar and Sri are rockstars! This is the TEAM to go to if you aspire to have the best home. Where do I start? Well, let me start from the beginning. This is our second home. We did buy our first home with Amar’s guidance. So we are aware of the home buying process, which can be stressful. Amar did go through the process before starting, and I understood a digital transformation and framework that I did not see during my first home purchase.
This impressed me since being the best REALTOR® in the country. Amar continually works on improving the process to make it seamless for his clients. We were not in a rush as we have a home to live in and wanted to find the right next home. This is where my favorite support pillar comes in – Sri. She is just amazing. I can vouch that she is here for your best interest, and she doesn’t care if she loses a deal.
Sri always advises on the house based on your family needs – First-time buyer? Do you have kids? Are you looking for an investment or something you want to call home? Do you need a backyard? Will the house appreciate it? She will give her best opinion and looks out for you as if you are her family. That is what stands out.
I was surprised when Amar asked about our opinion on a property. Sri replied before saying it is not the ideal property and continuing looking. That moved me. You can pick up your phone and chat with her as you would with your family. All you get is honesty. Now we found our ideal home, and then comes the master negotiator – Amar. He won us the deal when people were willing to pay way more.
This sometimes looks unreal but trust me – THIS IS TRUE. He presents your value in both financial and emotional terms – That is what closes deals. You either pay a lot more and buy or pay just the right and complement other intangibles that Amar brings and win. You decide! Now, after we won the deal, Amar, as always, signs up for fast closure. We wanted to close this in 25 days, given Christmas, New year holidays and the ongoing pandemic.
Nothing Stops AMAR and his team. He has the best team to get everything in place. We did have few challenges in closing on time – I won’t go into details – but Amar assured me not to worry. He said that this is his family’s deal and he would close it on time. And guess what, he did. I told him I would want to close it on 01/8 as it is an auspicious day. He made sure that we had the notary come in on the day for our signature, and he recorded it the same day and gave us the key. This is unprecedented given the pandemic.
I want to reiterate that I will always BUY or SELL only with Amar, and I recommend you all to do the same. I always say that Amar is a sponge – He absorbs all the pressure and makes sure you enjoy the home buying process. I enjoy working with this GREAT team!

Akhil Choran Balan | Lead iOS/MacOS Developer at Apple December 13, 2020, Akhil was a client of Amar -- Dec 2020

Thanks a ton, Amar and Sri, for helping us to get our dream home. We sincerely appreciate taking care of things like family, starting from guiding us to the right home till we move in. It is our pleasure to share our home buying experience.
We started looking for houses through online portals, and that is how we came across Amar’s profile in Zillow. After finding reviews on multiple online platforms about Amar, we decided to choose him as our Realtor®. We contacted Amar in October 2020, through a phone call. Amar promptly replied to our call and set up a meeting the same day. He explained to us in detail about the home buying process. We were impressed in the first call itself, seeing how thorough he is and how he laid out his plans. We knew that we had chosen the right person.
Sri explained to us in detail about the market and how we should select the homes. She had an excellent understanding of the location and knew the value of homes in that particular area. She also explained to us how the value changes over the years. Sri helped us in narrowing our search. Sri made us realize that we shouldn’t just look at the home’s interior, but it is equally important to look at other aspects of the home.Once we found our dream home, Amar was at the forefront, making a strong case for our offer, whereas Sri was working with us and walking us through everything that we needed to know. Given the number of offers that home had, we weren’t expecting to win the bid. But to our surprise, Amar called us and informed us that our offer was accepted. The Seller accepted our offer. It’s all because of Amar’s strong persuasive skills and internal connections with sellers.

Amar has a great team, starting with the lender who gave us the home’s best mortgage rate. The insurance agent, the home warranty agent, the escrow agent, etc., all of them were quick to jump in and help us. Amar’s team helped us close the deal within 3 weeks, even during the pandemic and holiday season in November. Overall it took less than 1.5 months for the entire process. Amar was keen on following up with everyone involved in the whole process. He frequently updated us on the status. His management skills were commendable.
Overall the whole process was very smooth. Amar and Sri executed the plans perfectly and were personally involved in every activity. They involved us in every step, and the entire process was very transparent to us. They were readily available whenever we called them. We would highly recommend Amar and Sri for all your home buying process, especially for first time home buyers.

Sheetal Gupta | Senior Revenue Professional December 1, 2020, Sheetal was a client of Amar -- Dec 2020

My home buying experience with Amar was exceptional! I had the opportunity to work with Amar and Sri and their excellent team. I honestly thought that I would get approved for the loan. After relentless efforts of providing documents after documents, I was in awe of not getting the loan approved. I was sad and annoyed, and then comes the rescue time for me when I came across Amar information through Zillow.
Right from my first connection with Amar, I knew in my heart that my dream of buying a home would come true. Within days of working with Amar and his team, I was approved for my loan, and thereby, my house hunting journey started. Sri made an exceptional effort in letting us know of the good schools and the area that will be best for my kids in the long run and me. I was able to secure a house within a month and a half of working with Amar, and that too during covid. There are so many steps into the home buying process.
Amar and his team made an extraordinary effort to negotiate and win the house. They also made sure that the price is right, which I came to know after my house appraisal. Amar made sure that we achieved our key milestones during the home buying process, and the experience was smooth. I am so grateful to Amar and the team. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to buy a house in the bay area!

Satheesha C.H Gowda | AWS Certified Solutions Architect, November 27, 2020, Satheesha was a client of Amar -- Nov 2020

When I enquired in my network for a Realtor®, whom I can count upon for buying a dream home, few names came up; among all, Amar and Sri stood out on the list. Soon after, I met Amar in person and was amazed by his background as a techie, in-depth knowledge of the local market, genuine care for their clients, willingness to go the extra mile to help first-time buyers like us.
Amar and Sri have been very instrumental in looking at the property from various angles (value proposition, neighborhood, school district, and what not) and steering us towards winning our dream home through the right strategy, best negotiation by all possible means, flawless execution, and personally involved in every step of the process(Escrow, Mortgage, Home Insurance/Warranty, Closing, Referrals for remodeling contractors/Re-Keying and the list goes on and on) from scheduling the tour of the property to scheduling the house warming ceremony. It was a one-stop solution for all Real Estate needs, and I am glad I was in the right hands.
Honestly, I couldn’t thank Amar and Sri enough for going the extra mile to make this entire process so pleasant and seamless. One of the best decisions I made to work with you. You exceeded all our expectations. I firmly believe this collaboration will last long.
We would highly recommend Amar, Sri & his entire team searching for the right home per your need, collaboration in making an informed decision, proper deal negotiation, flawless execution, and seamless experience throughout. Thank you, Amar and Sri! You are the BEST in the valley!

Hello Amar and Sri, I am immensely thankful for all your help and guidance throughout the home buying process. This was our first home, and we were not aware of many things. To begin with, Sri educated us with Dos and Donts in narrowing down on the house. She made us realize all the aspects a home buyer should look at from present and future point of view.
Sri was generous enough to share all past experiences, which made our decision making much easier. Certain cities in the Bay area can be very competitive, resulting in bidding wars. Your working relationship in the real estate market and several years of experience helped us win the offer and eventually get our dream home.
Once the house was finalized, there was immense discipline in executing all the various steps like loan approval, Escrow, etc. These steps could be very overwhelming for a first-time homebuyer. However, your excellent cross-functional teams (Loan, Home insurance, Home warranty, Escrow) made it very easier. Given how time-sensitive each step was, the cross-functional teams worked tirelessly on the closing plan.
They closed the deal in 24 days, even during the pandemic period. Covid-19 has changed things drastically, and home has gained an important place in everyone’s lives as we school and work from home. Getting a dream home in this pandemic seemed like an insurmountable task, but Amar, Sri, and their excellent cross-functional teams have helped us win it. Words cannot express our gratitude towards you.
THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!

It’s my first time working with Sri and Amar for buying investment properties. I had the down payment for two properties but was not entirely sure that. I would qualify for two loans if I had to buy the two properties simultaneously. It’s a unique scenario where Sri and Amar made their critical impact.
Sri gave thorough guidance about neighborhoods that suited my needs. She explained in detail why specific areas are better than others. When I was bidding, Sri advised me not to go overboard and explained why. It was because Amar had used his extensive connection with the agents networking and reputation. Amar convinced the listing agent that I was the best buyer and made my offer look like an all-cash offer. He was able to negotiate the best deal for me in the face of a higher offer.
The second place where Amar made the most crucial difference was in executing both the loan closures. When one of the loan agents had issues with getting the loan closed, Amar spoke to the loan agent, their manager, the underwriter, and their manager. He was able to bring the various parties involved to the table and sign off the loan within a time period he had set. I believe this was the most challenging part of the entire process.
Amar personally was on top of it to make sure both the loans closed as planned even when one was faltering and getting delayed. During the critical phase, he was overseeing the loan closure, the escrow process all the way to recording the property. He was on top of every process to ensure all of them ended smoothly with minimum disruption to my activities.

Amar is a master negotiator. Once he is convinced on a price and submits an offer, he will go at great lengths to get it accepted. He is very persuasive and talks to the point. He has a great team working with him round the clock to take the offer till closure and beyond.

Kannan Jagamoorthy | Head of Business Development October 26, 2020, Kannan was a client of Amar -- Oct 2020

Amar was recommended to us by a friend. We were already in the market looking for a house (put in offers for a couple of houses without success) before we switched to Amar/Sri. We put in an offer and got accepted all within 2 days from when we got introduced to them. We would not have got our house without the diligence and effort of Amar/Sri. Right from the start, we knew that we are dealing with consummate professionals.
Amar and Sri are very methodical and have clearly well-defined roles and expectations. The whole process was a well-executed project with milestones/deadlines etc. The icing on the cake was us getting the house despite not being the highest $ bid. Fo buying a house in the hot bay area market, we needed an edge over other offers, Amar/Sri gave us that edge.

Vikas Das | Software Developer Engineer at Apple October 25, 2020, Vikas was a client of Amar -- Oct 2020

We were recommended to Amar and Sri by a co-worker, Praveen. We highly recommend Amar and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. It has been a privilege working with Amar and the team.
We are a first-time buyer and not sure whether we should buy house or not mainly because of high price bay area real state and COVID situation. I talked to Sri. She understood my requirements and helped us to choose the right neighborhood in terms of school, commute, safetly, and future investimate.
Sri gave us honest updates about the house, which I am interested, neighbors and surroundings of the house. She guided me in terms of the offer, max price I should be bidding, pros and cons of property, and future values. Even our bidding is not highest, but Amar used his negotiation capability and worked the whole night to win the offer in our favor. Amar walked through all disclosures and patient with me with all first-time buyer question.
Best part of Amar team(Lender, Escrow, Insurance) is; even it is COVID situation whole execution from getting the offer to Recording Entire process was very smooth. Amar has been involved actively, monitoring all steps, and constantly updating me. His entire team is very professional and supportive.
I highly recommend Amar’s team’s services for home buying process. We are very satisfied with the whole experience, and I strongly recommend.

Ketaki Haldipurkar | Sr UX Designer October 7, 2020, Ketaki was a client of Amar -- Oct 2020

We were recommended to Amar by a co-worker. My co-worker’s actual words were, “If you are looking for a home, Amar is the guy! He will make sure you will get the best home”. That feedback held true. We brought our first home with the help of Amar and the team. It took us literally one weekend of shows, and two days later, we had won our first bid ever.
Amar is extraordinarily detail-oriented. He has a step-by-step process charted out, which he will explain+share with you after the first time you meet. It was beneficial for us as we were first time home buyers. It helped us understand the different milestones in the process we were going to cover. He also helped us finalize our zip code. We had five other towns we were interested in, and they all were in different counties.
Amar’s real estate investor experience is precious here. He gave great insights, which led us into nailing down to only two towns. Before meeting Amar, this same elimination process was callous, confusing, and even bad choices, I feel, from an investment perspective. From there, Sri guides with the pan out view of how great these homes you narrowed are, and which ones you should place bets on, also which ones you should let go. Sri is in constant touch during this process. For us, we were lucky.
We spoke to Amar Thursday, Friday we sent a list of our top 5 homes. Sat/Sunday, we viewed 3 of our top 5, and Wednesday, we bid and won the bid. If you reside in the Bay Area, you must know how challenging the home buying process is. It’s expensive and very competitive bidding wars. We did not have the most substantial bid. But by Amar’s magic, we won the bid.
Amar and Sri are a great team – very aggressive, dedicated, focused, and passionate real estate agents. He gives his best and gets the home you love. You can rely on Sri and Amar. Amar also lines up the Escrow and other technical details like home loan and insurance after winning the bid. They are the best deal you will get.
We learned that doing the homework of scouting it for ourselves and realized the best value is what Amar had lined up. Lastly, we brought our home during the lockdown. Sri informed us of all the protocols to follow to make it safe. All in all, it was a smooth home buying sailing process.

Deepak Karkala | Member Of Technical Staff, Engineer at PayPal September 6, 2020, Deepak was a client of Amar -- Oct 2020

We got in touch with Amar through Zillow, and that was the turning point in the house hunt that we were in for some time leading up to it. Amar and the team were very proactive from the get-go. They enthusiastically walked us through the milestones and the expectations for the entire home buying process.
Amar did not let the ongoing pandemic situation come in the way of the process. He set up frequent video calls to keep us up on the proceedings and was available for text/call/email at any time of the day. I always felt that the whole team was still on top of things and understood our requirements and preferences.
They provided invaluable tips and suggestions regarding the red flags while visiting a house. Their intricate knowledge of the neighborhoods and localities assisted us immensely. Amar and the team have been in this business for quite a long time, and it shows in the network of contacts they have in the Realty business.
Once we liked a house, both Amar and Sri would get into action and dig deep into the disclosures and lay out the details in layman’s terms in front of us. They were making it very easy for us to budget for the move-in expenses if any. We ended up buying a house with the first bid that we created with Amar and the team.
The house had more than 10 bids, and ours was not the highest bid for the house. But Amar and the team negotiated relentlessly and used their connections with the selling agent to pull it off for us. They ensured that we stayed in the loop throughout the negotiation process and let us make an informed decision. We are pretty sure we would not have won the bid if not for Amar and the team.
Later, Amar was personally involved in connecting us with the lender, escrow, home insurance agent, and others at every stage through the closing process. He would follow up with each of the parties individually to ensure that we were on track for the closing date. He would frequently send us the updated tracker of the milestones throughout the process.
It was a delight to have an agent who always had our back, which took much load off us. He made the entire home buying experience a walk in the park. Even after we moved into the house, he has been in touch with us, calling us frequently to check if everything was right.
Post-move-in, he provided contact with his contractors for some home upgrades we wanted to do. Every communication that Amar has provided us has turned out to be extremely professional. That shows the dedication and hard work that the entire team has put in through the years to build a strong network.
We highly recommend Amar and the team to anyone looking to buy a property, be it a first-time buyer or not. It has been a privilege working with Amar and the team.
We look forward to our continued relationship in the future. Thanks, Amar, and team. You are the best.

Anurag Chitnis | Software Development Engineer October 6, 2020, Anurag was a client of Amar -- Oct 2020

I found Amar’s contact from Zillow and reached out to him to ask about the home details. Amar helped me get in touch with the Lender, who got me the pre-approval and the best rate that I could get at that time. We visited houses and immediately liked one of the places. After that, Amar went through the disclosures/reports and everything in detail.
We decided to go ahead for the home to put the offer. As per Amar, there were multiple offers. I thought it might not happen as other offers were up to 10K higher than what I offered. I think Amar’s internal contacts and convincing power made a difference here, and I could get the home that I love. I am very grateful for Amar’s service and fortunate to have found him as my Realtor®.

Sakthivel Srinivasan | Principal Member Of Technical Staff October 1, 2020, Sakthivel was a client of Amar -- Oct 2020

I have heard excellent reviews for Amar and Sri over the years from some of my close friends. I finally got the opportunity to work with Amar and Sri when I was in the market to buy an investment property in the bay area. They had been very supportive and available throughout the process. Sri patiently explained the pros and cons to us for each neighborhood that we were interested in, and she helped us zero in on the location. They are very knowledgeable in the current market in the bay area, and their comp research is the spot.
Their expertise helped us get the property that we were interested in, a highly competitive Milpitas neighborhood. Both Amar and Sri are very detail-oriented and have always gone above and beyond, explaining every bit of information that a home buyer should know. They were very flexible and still available for any questions or concerns we had throughout the process. We highly recommend Amar and Sri as a great Realtor® who can work to your needs and find you a great home in the bay area.

Yashwanth Bommakanti | Technical Marketing Engineer September 28, 2020, Yashwanth was a client of Amar -- Sep 2020

First, thanks a ton for helping us own our first home in the US in an extremely competitive bay area. We are incredibly grateful to you. Since the beginning, Amar set up multiple calls even during these COVID times. He had put in special care and effort to understand the hone owning processes and milestones even before we started the process. He was extremely patient and understanding to answer all our questions and concerns and gave us appropriate guidance.
Sri has been of generous support and was extremely helpful throughout the process as well. Especially for us, since it was the first time we were undertaking a big life decision. She took the time to carefully review all the houses we sent and give feedback on why the property works or doesn’t work for our needs and helped us understand home values and factors impacting it. She was available throughout the process at all times. She scheduled visits keeping the COVID situation in mind. She made sure all the necessary precautions were taken at each visit. She was always helpful in guiding us throughout the experience.
Amar is extremely knowledgeable about the technical aspects. Once we finalized the house and wanted to go ahead, he was extremely proactive in offers and negotiations. He made our dream come true even if there was a $35,000 difference in the counter-offer price. The counter offers were quick, and the most efficient part was we didn’t raise the price even in counters offers. Amar helped get us inspection reports and took the time to schedule a call to explain every page of the report patiently. Even after the offer acceptance, he was always on top of all the processes. Amar was updating us at every single step.
We are extremely happy with Amar and Sri and definitely will share our experience with all our friends. We will surely recommend Amar to anyone thinking about a home purchase because they are incredibly efficient and knowledgeable agents. They are excellent people and very passionate about what they do and love to help people from the bottom of their hearts.
Thank you for everything.

PRAVEENKUMAR KADABGERE | Senior Engineer at Apple September 21, 2020, PRAVEENKUMAR was a client of Amar -- Sep 2020

We want others to know the beautiful experience we had buying our home with Amar and his amazing team. They helped us buy our house on our terms. We were shopping around, not very serious when we started but we never felt pressured to buy or bid at a specific price.
We also got good advice on the price point we should bid to get home. The house was a fallout of escrow at $1080000 and the appraisal at $1080000. The same house Amar negotiated for $1040000 when the listing of the house was $1048000. Amar managed to get the property below listing price. However, they had multiple offers and craziness happening in the current real estate market.
Sri, on the other hand, helped us understand the Bay Area market, neighborhoods, things to consider before looking into the property. She is very knowledgeable about all the areas in the bay. Any listing we were interested in, she immediately knew the property along with its pros and cons. She was very accurate with each property that came to the market and knew exactly what we were looking for. She was there in every step, and calmly explained every question we had related to the property.
Amar is a retired engineer. He had everything documented in an excel sheet with things to take care of when buying a property. It had to do what, like the lender’s responsibilities, insurance details, our responsibility, and things Amar and Sri had to do after the offer was accepted. Including selecting the best home insurance and other things.
Buying a new home is a daunting process, and they made us feel comfortable, made the whole process seamless. Amar and Sri are very responsive and prompt. We would highly recommend them as a Realtor®.

Abhishek Seth | Architect at Verizon Media September 17, 2020, Abhishek was a client of Amar -- Sep 2020

One of our achievements in the process of buying our first real estate in the US was to select Amar and Sri. We decided Amar without any reference, so there was an initial hesitation to connect, but we took a leap of trust and talked to Amar. We developed trust in Amar over time by observing his ability to get our work done. We are delighted to see the results that Amar delivered to us. After the initial call with Amar, he took our problem as his problem, and that is one great thing we liked in this whole process.
Amar has a predefined set of steps to follow in the home buying process, and we followed it and got the desired results. Amar himself brings in all the other players in the process like a loan officer, escrow, insurance, and warranty. I highly recommend getting the help of Amar in the home buying process. Amar remains very committed in the process and he drives it forward end to end and provides us the required results.
Amar’s experience is the following: The first step of Amar is to get underwriting approval for the loan, so he connected us to a well-reputed loan officer after our initial few calls. The loan officer got the job done for us in a few weeks. Immediately after we got underwriting approval of our loan, we connected back to Amar. Amar and Sri provided their feedback on various house options that we selected on the portal provided to us by Amar.
The experience of Amar and Sri helped us to reject different options and accept a few. This is where we saved a lot of time in selecting the right house for us. Within the first week of our loan approval, we, as a team, chose a home that we all liked.We visited the house on Saturday. Amar and Sri started bidding for the house on Sunday and by Sunday night, our bid was accepted.
During the bidding process, Amar and Sri remained very active, since there were multiple offers present. Amar always negotiated with the seller team to make our case. In the end, we even overtook all-cash offers, thanks to constant negotiations and reassurance by Amar to the seller party. This last phase is a critical phase to get a house in a competitive market, and we could feel the expertise of Amar and Sri in this phase. It is very natural to have many questions during the whole process.
This is where we found Sri extremely useful to us. Sri engaged with us over the phone many times to answer all our queries. She was very approachable during the whole process, which we appreciate a lot. House purchasing is a very big process, and we couldn’t have done it without the help of Amar and Sri. We will always remain thankful for their help in getting this house for us.

Tanmayee Potluri | Senior Product Manager September 9, 2020, Tanmayee was a client of Amar -- Sep 2020

Hi Amar/Sri, Before we start to talk about the exceptional home buying experience we had with both of you, we would like to thank you for helping us find our first home wholeheartedly!
Finding a first home in a country where you are entirely new to the process, know very little about the market, and have to invest tons of money is nothing less than a nerve-wracking experience. But working with you both has made it definitely a lot smoother, more comfortable, and also a learning experience.
I am thankful to my friend Archana who introduced us to you when we thought about buying a new home. You were present in every step of our home buying experience, which I believe is rare from what I hear in the market. When we first met you, you guided us through our options and, at the same time, you were open and considerate of our concerns around budget and plans.
When we found the home we were looking for, Sri was great in responding very quickly to our needs and set up times for the closed house tours. You were great in suggesting why this would be an excellent first investment for our needs and explained everything. When we decided to put in an offer, you explained what would help win the house.
Amar was excellent in negotiating and finally landing us the home. And now comes up the dreadful mortgage, closing, and everything associated with it. You helped us tremendously through all this by connecting us with experts in the specific areas, providing guidance in each of the regions on what is good for us, and being personally involved every step of the way. It is something we will significantly appreciate given it was our first home buying experience.
The contacts you introduced us to are still connected and help us when needed. With all your help and guidance, we could complete our mortgage and close in such a short period. I have always heard that you will put your heart and everything into it when you love what you do. I would relate this to you. You love what you do, and you are passionate about it, and we saw it at every step of our home buying experience.
Thank you again for all your help in making our experience a great one. We would be so happy and confident to refer you both to anyone. You honestly delivered excellent service at every step of the process!
Thank you,
Siva and Tanmayee

* First-time buyer * COVID pandemic * Competitive environment * When we first decided to purchase a house, we did not know what it involves to own a home. When we talked to Amar for the first time (for almost more than one hour), he explained the entire process starting from house search to having a key in our hand. He listened to every question and answered thoroughly. That was the first sign of having such a reliable and knowledgeable person as our agent.
After that, we started looking for listings we were interested in the house. We always received the first-hand opinion from Sri Amar whether to even look at that property. Given the COVID situation, it was very timely help, and her suggestions helped us narrow down our search. When we decided our house and put an offer, Amar and the team excelled in all possible ways to get our offer accepted (though it was not the highest bid offer). One suggestion from Amar was to write a personal letter to the seller, and that did magic.
After our offer got accepted, the entire execution of the plan by Amar and the team was phenomenal. Amar provided contact with a housing loan agent, home insurance agent, home warranty agent who all are dependable. We do not need to step out of our house to look for anything. The entire collaboration and execution were so powerful that we have a key to our house on day 20.
Even after closing the deal, Amar and Sri provided valuable suggestions. As per Amar, this is just the beginning of our new relationship. We are impressed with the way Amar and his teamwork and give a personal touch. We will highly recommend him for any real estate requirement.

Sindhu Tatimatla | Business Strategy, Planning and Analysis September 8, 2020, Sindhu was a client of Amar -- Sep 2020

We used Amar and the team to sell our home in. We received top-notch service from the get-go, and finally, our home sold for $100K over asking in a softening market due to COVID-19. These are outstanding results. Amar’s experience and strategy came to bear when our home inspection report showed significant areas of concern with our home.
Amar worked with the buyers and us to ensure that the issues were fixed without affecting the sales price. To top that, the buyers and we were delighted with the outcome. We don’t know how he did it, but all we can say is that we were simply bowled over. Amar is an expert in two-sided negotiations. He ensures that the most competitive results are achieved for his clients in a way that leaves everybody involved very satisfied.
Amar has an expert support team for home staging, inspections, and escrow. We felt like we received white-glove service throughout, and we could not be happier with the results Amar achieved for us.

Ram Elango | Manager, Data Engineering at Talend (IT) September 8, 2020, Ram was a client of Amar -- Sep 2020

I wanted to buy a property in Fremont. Amar explained to me regarding the home buying process and all of our roles and responsibilities. I started to shortlist the homes I liked, and Sri helped set up the in-house visit timing with the seller’s broker. In a couple of weeks, I was able to finalize a home and updated Amar and Sri.
Amar then worked very hard during the contract process by placing me at the right spot, which allowed me to get the home. At this stage, the one crucial point is that even as I was willing to pay more for the house, Amar got me the home at a lesser price, which is incredible. It clearly shows his confidence in the field he is in, which is excellent.
I went with a bank which gave me pre-approval. However, due to the COVID situation, they could not approve my loan. At this point, I thought that I would lose this new home. However, Amar got me extra days from the seller’s end, and at this point, I went with a different bank for the loan.
Amar did not lose hope, and he was under tremendous pressure for all sides. However, irrespective of being under pressure, he tried to handle everyone with compassion and calm nature. A few times, he even pushes people hard to make things happen on time.
Finally, I got my new home only because Amar and I and my family are always grateful for Amar Sri. Whoever is in the market now for home buying, I would strongly recommend Amar and team. He is a one-stop-shop and will go to heaven and earth to make it happen.
The service Amar is doing is incredible, and I wish him all the best and no way why no one can beat him, and he is the top Realtor® in our bay area.

Prakash Ramadass | Entrepreneur| Investor| Strategist | Marketer August 18, 2020, Prakash was a client of Amar -- Aug 2020

This is my third real estate transaction with Amar and Sri team, but my first selling experience using Amar’s exemplary “E= MC2” service. Amar’s philosophy is about making a smart investment with vast local knowledge of what’s happening in the bay area’s fast-growing neighborhoods. When it comes to real state needs, they are the experts.
Sri and Amar have been advising us every year on “where to buy,” “at what price,” and “when to sell.” They have become part of my extended family, helping us and our friends and family in our real estate needs with outstanding one-stop service in the bay area.
When we purchased this place based on Sri’s recommendation to invest in Milpitas, little we know that every catalyst she mentioned during the home “qualification” process would eventually increase property value so much in less than two years we owed this property. The timing was perfect again based on Amar’s recommendation; we listed the house and sold it less than two weeks above the market asking price.
Simply put, you will not find someone like AMAR and SRI who genuinely cares about his client’s needs and protect your interest in every way possible. Besides saving money in the buying process from insurance to warranty, their advice and guidance on the ENTIRE selling process were invaluable. As an investor, you need a trusted partner, attention to detail, knowledge of the local market that lets you focus on maximizing your ROI.
“Relax, we will guide you THE ENTIRE SELLING PROCESS “approach. It was so unique that you would be amazed at how much care and thoughts they put in to ensure success in every possible way for each client.

We firstly want to thank Amar, Sri, and Team for providing exceptional support and help in getting our new home. We have been thinking about an upgrade from our current home and had lots of questions and confusion before we started. We got Amar’s contact from some previous conversations when we bought our first home four years ago. When we were looking for an upgrade, Amar came first to mind. Listing current home:
We first set up an introductory call with Amar; given the COVID situation, we had a zoom call. Amar clearly explained the whole process of listing and buying a new home. Once we signed the listing contract, Amar sent out a detailed execution list with many steps to happen for the execution. Given it’s a new experience for us, these execution steps were incredibly useful. Amar always emailed us about the progress on each level.
After listing the house, we got offers without any contingencies within ten days and above the listing price. Overall it was a smooth process for us as a seller. Amar did most of the heavy lifting negotiating and bringing all involved parties and taking it to the finish line. Buying a new home: Once we had our listing sorted out, Amar introduced us to Sri, to help us find our next home.
Sri has so many insights on the bay area and helped us choose the right neighborhood to look for, given our emphasis on schools and safety. Finally, after a very insightful conversion with Sri, we decided on the neighborhoods, and we went on our way to look for homes that we liked around the area.
Once we sent out around ten listings that were to our liking, and then Sri went on to research those listings and filtered out the bad apples, which we were not aware of. Sri emphasized the long-term value of the home and took us on the right path to find our perfect home. Once we found the house we liked, then came the offer part. Before we put down the offer, Amar went over the disclosures and other paperwork and cleared out everything was good before proceeding further.
The house we saw had multiple offers, and the way Amar and the team worked blew our mind. They are masters in negotiating, out of 5 other strong offers, they negotiated with the other listing agent. They helped us put a very good offer. And at midnight in the night (yes they work hard) after an anxious evening, we got a phone call from Sri and Amar, letting us know the good news that our offer was accepted.
They made it look easy, but clearly, they went above and beyond to make sure we are doing the right thing. Amar also helped us with his excellent team to get us the highly exceptional team starting from Financing, Home warranty, insurance, and others. End of the day, we feel great that we went with Amar and the team.
Thanks again.

Amar’s thorough analysis of the real estate market and an in-depth understanding of the buyer’s expectations makes him uniquely positioned to navigate tough real estate markets. He is professional and systematic in laying down his role and his expectations from his clients. We had the first-hand experience of this when we approached him for our single-family home needs.
Once we finalized the home we wanted and the price we wanted to pay, Amar was able to negotiate a highly satisfying deal for us well below the listing price, keeping us informed us at every step during the negotiations. With an able partner in Sri Amar, we highly recommend Amar and the team as a buyer’s agent for your home buying needs.

Hi Amar, Please accept our sincere thanks for helping us sell our property at such short notice. We wanted to sell our house for some time. However, We were nervous about putting our house on sale during COVID situation.
However, you made the process seamless for us, starting from getting the house on the market within 1 week, making sure the house is marketed superbly, generating offers/counters, and closing deals within 2 weeks.
On top of that, you helped get the closing done a week sooner than planned. With your help, all tasks completed on or before time, we are glad we picked you as our selling agent. Appreciate your hard work and sincerity for the job well done.
Best Regards Amit

Laxmi Patil | VP, Data and Business Analysis August 11, 2020, Laxmi was a client of Amar -- Aug 2020

We started looking to buy a new home last September, and the first step was to search for a good or rather best Realtor® in the bay area. Looking for an excellent, aggressive Realtor® as we did not have a pleasant experience with our prior Realtor® when we bought our previous home.

I spoke to Amar, and we instantly connected. Amar has in-depth experience in every aspect of home buying. As soon as I started the conversation, we were able to discuss many things as he would understand buyer’s requirements very quickly. He would make strong recommendations on how we should proceed.

Also, Amar was very proactive in suggesting how we should rent our previous home and was very helpful in understanding the rental market. These suggestions are unbiased in any manner. I still remember our first meeting with Amar. We discuss many things which would take several meetings with any other Realtor® ( in my opinion and experience).

Once we decided on the budget and location with Amar’s inputs, the formal and professional process started from Amar’s team, which first started with Sri Amar. Sri Amar is immensely down to earth and understands every aspect of home buying, just like Amar.

Sri Amar makes sure to filter the homes based on our preference. There were instances where I would ask Sri Amar if a particular home is worth visiting. Sri Amar would make sure to get into the details and see if the house is worth visiting. She said NO to many such homes before we found our home.

Sri/ Amar had to make the offer to our current home very aggressively during holiday times (December). We are traveling internationally. Sri/ Amar ensured to work very closely with the sellers and us, negotiate it very aggressively, and get us a good deal. After winning the offer, the next steps executed an optimal way until we got the keys to our new home.

I must say Sri and Amar are great at what they do and are very professional with a personal touch to everything they do 🙂 🙂 It was a great pleasure working with Sri and Amar. If anyone wants seamless home buying experience – now you know whom to go to 🙂 Sri and Amar Realtors®. Thank you, Sri and Amar.

Kunal Sahu | Engineering Manager, Google August 11, 2020, Kunal was a client of Amar -- Aug 2020

Amar & Sri are a great team. They are the best Realtor® if you are serious at the housing market in the competitive bay area. We have worked with them multiple times now, and every single time they beat their performance!

Sri is very knowledgeable about the housing neighborhood and always comes up with excellent locations. She has spent several years in the prime market and has a great knack at suggesting areas.

Amar is very professional and through with the whole home buying and selling process. He takes the stress and anxiety in this process, especially in such a hot bay area market. His negotiations are unbelievable. He has always got us the deal, and that too at a price favorable to us.

Amar & Sri are family to us, and we would keep going to them for any advice and help with our home needs. We strongly recommend to anyone who is looking to find their home and make their dreams come true.

Kunal Sahu | Engineering Manager, Google August 11, 2020, Kunal was a client of Amar -- Aug 2020

From our very first conversation with Amar, we could feel the difference between him and other agents we have been working with. Amar came across somebody who has in-depth knowledge of the Bay Area real-estate market and knows how to win in pressure situations. He was very very cooperative in understanding our requirements and guiding us through various areas. With multiple set-backs, we had very little hope about buying it in this aggressive market.

Amar assured us that he would try his level best and there is nothing to be worried about. He has a calming presence which soothes the buyers and gives them this peace of mind. Couple of days after submitting our offer, to our surprise Amar came back to us with our offer accepted!!! We are the winners of fierce competition (10 offers) and our offer is not the highest offer.

Amar worked really hard behind the scenes and added that personal touch in negotiating the deal for us. Besides, he was at the fore front of each and every stage of the home buying and saved lot of money in the process. Staying at top of things, he also made us understand the various aspects of being a home owner. He worked with the loan officer, escrow officer, selling agent, appraisal officer, insurance agent and a whole bunch of people to close the deal in less than 15 days.

The speed at which Amar works is truly unbelievable. With him around, one does not need to worry about a thing. Sometimes, I feel that one has 24 hours in a day, but Amar has 30 hours in a day. The amount of stuff he manages to get done is remarkable. One has to meet and work with him to truly understand and experience it. Basically, Amar is a really nice person and lovely to work. He has his heart in this profession and brings the human aspect in the things he does. I can’t recommend enough about Amar’s contribution in fulfilling our dream of being a home owner.

He is a ROCKSTAR!

Aravind Ramakrishnan | Powertrain Business Development Manager August 11, 2020, Aravind was a client of Amar -- Aug 2020

My wife and I had the pleasure of being introduced to Amar in Feb 2020 by an acquaintance of ours who had previously worked with him. Even before the first discussion, we got a really good feeling regarding his expertise by glancing at the numerous glowing recommendations on LinkedIn. During our first meeting, Amar took the time to patiently explain the home buying process and the current housing market situation. The key process steps and responsible stakeholders were defined early on!

As first time home buyers with a young infant, this was invaluable for us and helped us save valuable time. Then we were put in touch with Sri Amar, who has a wealth of information regarding locality and background information. While we had to put a brief pause in our house search due to COVID-19, Amar and Sri were super understanding and emphasized that safety was first. They helped us to focus on the right area, which met most of our criteria.

As we restarted the process in June, they were responsive and provided a lot of guidance. We did many drive-around (due to Covid-19). Sri Amar provided almost instant feedback on the choices homes we were interested in. She guided us in aspects that we did not even think about – like avoiding busy areas because we had a young one!

The offer process itself was a unique experience. We were able to get a private viewing of our future house 10 hours before offers were due! With a lot of timely discussions with Amar and Sri, we were able to pull all of the info needed to get a good offer in!

The fact that our offer was accepted when there were better/cash offers on the table is a testament to Amar’s negotiation skills (total of 13 offers). He fought for us so passionately when even we had given up hope, exhibiting his professionalism at the highest level. Even Amar remarked that this was one of his toughest negotiations in recent times, and he came out on top! (It was a Relocation transaction and very challenging in many ways).

When we saw the email at around midnight congratulating us on our offer being accepted, we could hardly believe it! Our future home awaited us, where we would see our son grow up! If all of this was not enough, Amar’s most reliable trick was saved for last. His amazing network of crucial people for the closing process is mind-boggling! He was able to introduce us to the right Mortgage Agent, Insurance Agent, etc.

Amar personally oversaw the process and ensured all of the points of contact reacted accordingly so that we could close on time! He and his team also ensured that we were kept in the loop for all decisions, really ensuring that we worked together. Even after closing, he continued to support us with key contacts for the locksmith, utility changeover, security, etc.

In the end, it worked out for us that we were able to work with Amar! I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone looking to buy (or sell), as they get the job done! We will certainly be returning to Amar for our future need.

Abhishek Rawat | Software Engineer at Cloudera August 9, 2020, Aathira was a client of Amar -- Aug 2020

Amar and Sri helped us buy our first home. We were lucky to have their guidance and expertise. They stayed on top of every activity throughout the process, ensuring that we successfully get the house of our dreams.

Amar is a great negotiator. Because of his negotiation skills, our offer was accepted even though it was not the best offer for the seller. Amar used the right strategy focusing on our strengths, and as a result, we were able to win the house. Both Amar and Sri were easily accessible, and just an email/call/text away.

Being first time home buyers, we needed much help, and they always kept us informed and helped us make the right decisions. There are many complicated steps in the process: loan approval, home insurance, home warranty, escrow, and closing.

They were personally involved in every step. They helped us get the best possible service. With their help, we were able to get a low-interest rate from a well-known lender. They even helped us get the best possible insurance and warranty policy. The escrow process also went super smoothly.

They worked tirelessly in the background for our success, ensuring that we do not have to worry about anything. In my opinion, it was a perfect execution, and I would highly recommend Amar and Sri.

Aathira Prabhakar | Senior Software Engineer August 2, 2020, Aathira was a client of Amar -- Aug 2020

Thank you, Amar & Sri, for helping us get our dream home. When we first contacted Amar in May, we were clueless about the home buying process. Without his help and guidelines, we could not have reached this milestone. We were doubtful if it was the right decision to buy a house amidst the pandemic and Shelter-in-place.

After talking to Amar about our concerns and expectations, he gave us a clear picture of the process. He explained all the steps and how he and Sri will be involved in each step. He connected us to a lender who could close the sale in 21 days. We realized this is important for sellers to close the house in as little time as possible.

Sri helped us find our perfect home. She guided us to find a home that fit our current need and will also be a good investment for the future. We realized that there is much more to a home than newly remodeled cabinets and kitchen. It is all about LOCATION! There were many evenings when we talked for hours about different properties. She gave us clear insight into why some properties are not right for us.

Finally, we found a property with everything that we looked for, and Sri gave us the green flag. Amar explained the disclosures of the house very well to us. He presented a clean offer to the seller and negotiated a good deal for us by working around the clock. We got the house with new furniture all at list price, which was 30K less than what the seller expected.

Even after moving into the house, Amar and Sri continued to help us to sort out everything. We are grateful to have known them, and we appreciate all their efforts in helping us land in a beautiful home.

SAMARPITA SARKAR | Senior Research Associate July 20, 2020, SAMARPITA was a client of Amar -- Jul 2020

My husband and I had a great experience working with Amar and Sri. We were looking for our 1st home in the Bay area. Being a first time home buyer, we were extra cautious looking for a Realtor® who could help us in our journey to find our dream home. That’s when we came across Amar and Sri. We just contacted them through Zillow and immediately we got the confirmation of our first e-meet.

Amar’s first email started with a line, “HOMEOWNERSHIP is the partnership and commitment between the Realtor® and Buyer.” This resonated with us a lot. That’s when we realized we have picked the right people to work with.

Amar walked us through the entire home buying process step by step. He put together an extremely organized strategy with his Real Estate partner Sri. He was thorough with the entire process starting from market research until closing. He emphasized on TEAMWORK and ensured everyone’s contribution was on time to close on our dream home.

Sri would discuss every house we came across in the market and point out the pros and cons of them. She was always so cheerful yet very technical. She patiently worked with us to choose the right home in terms of its value. She went deep into knowing what exactly we are looking for and intersected with her vision of what we should be looking for, in terms of value of a property, its locality and other technical aspects.

Amar and Sri did a wonderful job explaining the initial disclosure and eventually helping us put together a good offer. He did a fantastic job negotiating with the seller thereby keeping everyone happy. They were personally involved in all areas viz. Escrow process, Loan, and closing. It was sheer teamwork and their experience that helped us to finish the entire process from finding the right home until close within 22-23days.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Sri and Amar and we would highly recommend them.

Rahul Pisal | Technology Manager at Silicon Valley Bank July 18, 2020, Rahul was a client of Amar -- Jul 2020

It has been a great experience working with Sree, Amar and their team. Starting with making us comfortable by easing into the process and ensuring to adjust to work with our pace,when needed thrusting the necessary force to make things happen says a lot about their team’s experience in how to ensure the clients are treated uniquely and still deliver.

A lot has been said in the recommendations about the negotiations skills that Amar brings to the table, I can conform to that but also add the thoughtful planning he goes through giving that necessary time and effort that brings out multitude of options from his playbook to ensure the best to your client.

Ranganathan Boovaraghavan | Software Test Director at Nokia July 5, 2020, Ranganathan was a client of Amar -- Jul 2020

My recent home selling experience with Amar’s services was remarkable. Amar’s team helped through the entire selling process from initial selling consultancy to closing. The team suggestions were valuable and guaranteed the returns with a higher selling price.

Amar provides end to end service and helps that is hard to find. The team put dedication to details on Staging, photography, 3D Walk-in-Tour, Floor plan, Premier Videos, etc., which would give the buyer more confidence.

Due to the fantastic efforts, the team pulled off an excellent offer in just a few days of listing. Without the Amar’s extraordinary marketing reach and agent networking, it would have been impossible to get multiple incredible offers, particularly during the pandemic time.

Amar negotiated offer price is way above my expectations and extremely happy for the results. Till the close of the sale, it was seamless with a precise tracking at every step throughout the process. I never thought selling a home would be so simple. I recommend other sellers to experience it for themselves.

Vinayak Namjoshi | Senior Software Application Engineer July 1, 2020, Vinayak was a client of Amar -- Jul 2020

Amar has been very clear in the process of home buying. In our first meeting itself, he explained every step in detail. We loved his work ethic, where we established that Sri, Amar, and we all need to agree to go ahead with the offer. Amar and Sri were always available to have a word and answer any questions that we have.

They made sure we completely understand and are satisfied with the answers. We were impressed by Sri’s knowledge of the neighborhoods and the investment perspective she gave us. She poured her heart to make sure we were buying the right home for the best price. It gave us so much confidence in our decision to buy home. We were stunned by Amar’s negotiation skills, and because of it, we were able to beat the cash offer and win our dream home.

Amar has an excellent team. Everyone stayed on top of their responsibility in closing this deal on time. I will recommend Amar and Sri to all my friends interested in buying a house as they will be in safe hands. We sincerely appreciate all your efforts in winning the best deal and home for us. Thank you so much, Amar and Sri.

Nithin Dev Bandakka | R&D ENGINEER SENIOR STAFF JUNE 17, 2020, NITHIN DEVWAS A CLIENT OF AMAR -- Jun 2020

I met Amar at an open house a couple of years back when I was casually looking around houses. He came across as a very simple down to earth person, very approachable. At the beginning of the year 2020, we got serious about home buying and decided to go with Amar as our agent. I am glad I got to work with Amar and Sri. Sri guided us a lot in particular with location, feedback about the positive and negative of every house we looked at.

Our home buying process was during the Covid-19 pandemic, and for every tour, we did Sri made sure we had a safe slot to tour the houses. This was particularly important for us as we had a toddler. Amar able to WIN the home before the offer due date without competing with other offers.

Amar has a well-structured set of milestones defined for a buyer to follow through on, which helps us anticipate what to expect next. They also ensured that once closing is done, we finished the transfer of utilities etc. Overall, I am glad we chose Amar and Sri as our Realtors® and looking forward to working with them in the future.

Tapas Mohapatra | SR. MANAGER, SITE RELIABILITY ENGINEERING JUNE 11, 2020, TAPAS WAS A CLIENT OF AMAR -- Jun 2020

This is about Amar and Team who were instrumental in making our dream come true to be the proud first time home buyer in Bay Area. In my whole review process, I want to highlight the dates as it’s highly important to look at the effectiveness, planning, process-driven, speed of execution, and the result-driven team that any buyer would like to wish for it.

It was on Dec 14th, when I first found about Amar from a listing and decided to hit the button to reach out, and to my surprise, in no time he responded and we had a brief conversation about my home buying situation. It was then the Christmas Holiday week where no one works, Amar was kind enough to work late on a Saturday (Dec 22nd) late evening to meet us for the first time and explain the home buying process literally from A to Z as we knew nothing.

On Sunday, Dec 23rd, without caring about the holiday or Christmas break, he drove all the way just to be with us to see a home that I sent him a message the previous night. We liked the home and decided on Sunday, Dec 22nd night to offer and informed Amar by email on Sunday, Dec 23rd late night. From here on are the most amusing part about how Amar and team made this happen and all these during the Christmas Holiday.

Home Offer and Acceptance: Unlike other agents, Amar always puts himself into buyer situation and does thorough analysis/inspections before saying to yes for any offer. He formed a dedicated team and performed all necessary checks such as location analysis, comparable in the area, direction, litigation and all sorts of technical evaluations, discussed all of that with us and defined a clear plan and execution process so we got it all completed and decided to offer on Monday, Dec 24th. He worked closely with us, guided us thru the market around the area, value of the home in 6months vs 3yrs and so on and we were amazed with the level of knowledge and information he provided to us in deciding the best offer number.

In this whole offer preparation process, while he has a quite different style of making then offer, he always made sure we have a plan B and plan C to act on which gave us a lot of confidence. Amar negotiation skills are phenomenal as he continued working with the seller agent after submitting the offer and negotiated the whole deal and convinced effectively to the seller side to accept the offer and he made it happen for us.

Yashwanth Konduri | DATA SCIENTIST AT IBM JUNE 7, 2020, YASHWANTH WAS A CLIENT OF AMAR -- Jun 2020

Thanks for your great work in helping us find the right home Amar, Sri, and the team. Sri has helped assess all the homes and help us understand the pros and cons of each house we were interested in. Thanks for establishing a safe environment for visits during this pandemic.

Amar, you were absolutely fantastic in negotiating the house price to get us the home 30K below the highest bid price. Thank you both for guiding us throughout the entire home buying process. You were available at all times on any day necessary.

Thanks for clearly establishing goals for each individual and driving the strategy to achieve them. It has been a pleasure working with you and hopes to work with you again soon.

Nithya Shivamani | SOFTWARE ENGINEER APRIL 26, 2020, NITHYA WAS A CLIENT OF AMAR -- Apr 2020

When we decided to purchase the home, we had lots of questions related to the purchase. We met Amar at the Palo Alto office. Amar guided us through the steps of the home buying process and gave us everything we needed to get started with the process. He has an excellent team that works tirelessly throughout the home buying process.

As a first time homebuyer, we are always curious about the process and had a lot of questions. This is where Sri Amar comes into the picture. She patiently listened to all our concerns and advised accordingly at each stage of the home buying process. These questions ranged from how zip codes attract a premium, Sri duly answered school districts and bidding process, etc.

Amar and Sri Amar would let the clients do the survey of the property independently. They never forced any opinions on the house and very patient until we are functionally like the house. Once we like, they go through all the disclosures and patiently explain everything in detail. On the offer date, Amar worked with the lender and put forward a competitive offer on the table and got the property that we call our home at a great deal. These were the times when “Shelter-in-place” was announced in CA.

During “Shelter-in-place”, there were delays associated with appraisals and Amar kept the seller agent and others in the loop. We were in the housing market for less than a month and Amar helped us to get the property we would call it our home. We were more than happy about closing the deal. In the whole process, we had some great interactions with Sri Amar, who would provide valuable insights.

We are extremely pleased with our home buying process and our association with Amar & Sri Amar. We would definitely recommend Amar and Sri Amar to our friends and family. Thanks for making this come true so early and we appreciate all the efforts put by this efficient team.

Ranganathan Boovaraghavan | SOFTWARE TEST DIRECTOR APRIL 25, 2020, RANGANATHAN WAS A CLIENT OF AMAR -- Apr 2020

Amar and team, First, our heartfelt gratitude for helping us with the purchase of the new home. Beyond our friendship and closeness, the professionalism you and the team have shown amazes me. Knowledge of how the home-buying process works is key to avoiding many misunderstandings in the lengthy and complicated process. Your articulate walk through of the process and clear definition of roles, responsibilities, periodic updates helped us all be on track.

Amar, you always put the team first and that is a great attitude of a leader. I have observed how you firmly view success is not just an individual effort but rather a concerted effort of a team to satisfy customer. The testimony of the execution was very visible even as we made our first bid. By the way, there was that only bid as we sealed it. Seeing your persistence, I was very sure the deal was ours to win and at a well negotiated market price. I have been greatly benefitted by the end-to-end support of this wonderful team. The business staff, the loan team, insurance folks all of them have gone that extra mile to make it happen.

It looked daunting at first to agree to a 21-day closing and the team pulled it through seamlessly. To sum up, my home buying experience was awesome and in my opinion it couldn’t have been better. Thanks again Amar and Team for this great work. I would 100% positively recommend you to any of my friends for your total professionalism and commitment.

Nidhi Mittal | INTERNATIONAL TAX SENIOR AT DELOITTE APRIL 20, 2020, NIDHI WAS A CLIENT OF AMAR -- Apr 2020

We met Amar in his Palo Alto office for the initial consultation on a Friday afternoon and got enrolled to the website portal. In our initial consultation he read our mind and knew what exactly we were looking for.

Sri and Amar are incredibly amazing at what they do. For each property that we were interested in, Sri gave us insights that we would not have found anywhere else. She walked us through all the pros and cons for each property we were sincerely thinking of bidding. All they wanted for us to make a best informed decision. They both made themselves available 24×7.

Amar was personally involved in all the areas right from the beginning till we were finally settled in our new home. He stayed on the top of everything and made sure the buying process was as smooth as possible. It sounds unbelievable but within 2 weeks we bid on the house and with his sharp strategy we got the house too. His coordination with the banker was incredible which made sure that we not only got our offer accepted but also the loan process was smooth.

Last but not the least we started our journey with Amar and Sri as our Realtors® but we ended up with life long friends. We wholeheartedly recommended them.

Alok Aggarwal | MEMBER OF TECHNICAL STAFF AT LACEWORK APRIL 12, 2020, ALOK WAS A CLIENT OF AMAR -- Apr 2020

After six months of fruitless home search and many unaccepted offers with another agent, we came across Amar. Amar noted our requirements and gave us a clear picture of the market. He shared home buying process and encouraged us to stick to the process. Amar clarified our doubts about property selection and busted some of the myths.

We were looking in Milpitas and we found ourselves in a very aggressive market in the first quarter of the calendar year 2020. But Amar and Sri know the market very well. They have a great network in Milpitas area. Amar helped us win the deal amongst many offers. A few were even higher than ours. Amar used his top negotiation skills to make sure we get the deal.

After offer acceptance, Amar and Sri guided us through the closing process. They have a strong network of connections ranging from lenders to insurance providers to contractors. Amar led the whole process and drove his team to complete the closing, keeping us closely involved throughout. Amar made sure he stayed on top of the process.

After closing, Amar and Sri continue to help us with their contacts so that the house move-in goes smoothly. The contacts they suggest offer very competitive prices. We are very happy with the deal we got. We strongly recommend Amar and Sri for people’s real estate needs.

Aniket Pansare | SENIOR SOFTWARE ENGINEER AT UBER MARCH 31, 2020, ANIKET WAS A CLIENT OF AMAR -- Mar 2020

We were fortunate to find Amar and Sri for our home buying process. We were first time home buyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. As my wife was pregnant, we were in a desperate need to find a home to welcome our daughter and start a new life with her. It was such a crucial time for both of us but the entire process of home buying was priceless.

We came to know about Amar from online reviews. We first had a one on one session with Amar (highly recommended) where he explained the entire home buying process to us. Sri was very much involved with the initial shortlisting and gave us reasons for choosing a property vs not choosing it. She gave several insights which we otherwise would have struggled to get. This included critical viewpoints of some houses which we shortlisted.

After identifying our dream home within the first month, Amar and Sri put an aggressive offer to the seller on our behalf at a price we were very comfortable with. It was Seller’s first open house, they had many offers and weren’t entertaining anyone until they met the price they wanted. But Amar had the perfect strategy planned out to win. Amar and his team literally worked day and night to win us the offer by convincing the seller.

Amar and Sri were personally involved in all areas like Escrow process, loan and to closing the deal. Their guidance was really helpful as not once we were skeptical about any decision that we took. They were always available any time of the day, whether after office hours or during weekends. I remember receiving emails at 4 am in morning with highly informative process updates.

Thank you Amar, Sri and the team for helping us secure our dream home and start a new phase of our life with our daughter. I would highly recommend you to anyone I come across who is in need of a buying agent for their home. Once again, thanks a lot for all your efforts, we are proud owners of our dream home now.

Arun Kulathumony | PRODUCT MANAGEMENT AT NETGEAR MARCH 15, 2020, ARUN WAS A CLIENT OF AMAR -- Mar 2020

We came to know of Amar from a few references and online reviews. We first had a 1:1 session with Amar when he explained the whole home buying process. Sri was very much involved with the initial shortlisting and gave us reasons for choosing a property vs not choosing it. She gave several insights which we otherwise would have struggled to get.

This included critical viewpoints of some houses which we shortlisted. After identifying our dream home within the first month, Amar and Sri put an offer on our behalf. The seller had many offers and wasn’t entertaining anyone until they met the price they wanted. However, Amar was able to get information from the seller on what they wanted. It’s critical information to make informed decision.

The seller were a bit adamant on the price they wanted but Amar was able to negotiate to a level which was a win-win for both sides. After our offer was accepted, Amar and his team helped to close the deal within the stipulated time we had put in the contract. When I had to travel abroad, he worked with my wife to ensure things weren’t left on the wayside and make progress and close the house on time.

Overall it was a great experience working with Amar and Sri and we recommend them to aspiring first-time home-buyers.

Karthik Suresh | Product Manager at Walmart eCommerce December 10, 2019, Karthik was a client of Amar -- Dec 2019

Amar and Sri came highly recommended from our friends who had just bought a house and I am glad we decided to work with them. Me and my wife both strongly believe that they made the impossible happen for us.

Amar and Sri got our dream home for us. The entire process was seamless and smoothly executed. Right from the very first meeting we could sense that they had our best interest in mind and were genuinely interested in helping us get the right home. Amar and Sri helped formulate a winning strategy and guided us through all the steps including what to look for in a prospective home & neighborhood, what to avoid, how to approach the seller’s agents etc. A fact we appreciated was that they advised against any house/neighborhood that was not right or safe. After we liked a house they had an indepth discussion with us to make sure we are interested in the property for the right reasons.

Once the ground work was done, they helped us come up with a winning bid and negotiated the best possible deal. We could reach out to Amar or Sri anytime to discuss anything throughout the process including but not limited to shortlisting and reviewing properties, deciding a winning bid, reviewing disclosures, navigating the escrow process, getting a loan and eventually closing on the deal.

We have already recommended them to all our friends and look forward to working with them if we decide to buy another property.

Vijay Kumar Vasantha | Principal Engineer at Broadcom Limited November 26, 2019, Vijay was a client of Amar -- Nov 2019

We were first time home buyers and we came to know about Amar & Sri from a close friend. Our home buying experience was a breeze just because Amar and Sri put their heart and soul in this whole process. From wanting to own a home to owning a home took just three weeks.

On one Sun morning we met Amar and explained our requirements and limitations in buying a home. Being an expert Realtor® Amar quickly understood our requirements and guided us by providing valuable feedback on type of house we should target for our budget, areas we should target considering future market appreciation etc. On Mon evening we talked to Sri in detail.

Sri with extensive knowledge in Bay Area neighborhood explained areas good for raising a family, areas with great neighborhood and good houses in market. On Wed Sri guided us to a house, this house met all our requirements, and the neighborhood was impressive. We quickly expressed our interest in this house to Sri.

On Thu Amar took charge and guided in the bidding process. There were 11 bids for the house already. Being an expert strategist, Amar helped us bid 5% less than the least offer and negotiated to make this deal happen. So as a buyer we realized that a good buyer’s agent was not someone who can bid highest and win, but someone who can bid least, negotiate and win. On Fri, it was Diwali eve and we couldn’t be any happier, we had entered into contract with the Seller. On Diwali my friends told us that we were lucky in getting a good house for a lesser price. For an outsider it was luck since they did not see us work hard, but as an insider we attribute our good luck to Amar’s & Sri’s hard work.

Without Amar’s homework on quality of construction, Sri’s understanding of our requirements and guidance to right home, neighborhood & area, and most of all Amar’s negotiation skills in bidding phase, we could not have owned this home. Next the loan processing had to be completed in just two weeks. Suited for our financial and closure situation, Amar guided us to the best lender for Escrow and Bank Loan process. The whole process of Legal and Bank work was executed by Amar, Sri and Team in a quick, effective and smooth fashion. By the end of three weeks, we had the keys to our new home and we were proud owners. I think we got lucky to work with Amar and Sri.

Amar and Sri were not only our buying agent but also our mentors and friends in this whole process. Looking forward to getting guidance from and working with Amar & Sri. Vijay Kumar

Amar & Sri represented us as buyer’s agent. We were looking to buy our first home, and we wanted someone with experience and good negotiation skills to represent us in the competitive bay area real estate market. We chose Amar based on the reviews on various forum and it turned out to be the best decision.

We had initial consultation with Amar and he suggested neighborhoods based on our needs & budget. Sri educated us various aspects of selecting a property and helped us to prioritize the aspects that matter to us most. Based initial discussion with Amar & Sri we shortlisted few properties. Sri was really helpful in this and helped us understand pros and cons on each of the property. This helped us rule out certain properties. Once we selected the property Amar was instrumental in drafting the offer and getting it accepted. The property we selected was sold by a relocation agency on behalf of seller and Amar’s expertise & previous experience in dealing with relocation agency helped to navigate this un-usual home buying scenario.

He negotiated hard for us and was able to get the offer accepted less than the list price. After the offer was accepted, Amar & his team’s work was excellent. We got the regular update regarding the various milestones and all the items were executed on time. Finally, on the auspicious day of Dhanteras we got the keys of our first house. As a first-time buyer we were very nervous but with the help of Amar & team our home buying experience was positive.

More than buyer’s agent Amar & Sri were like mentors & friends guiding us through each phase We hope to work with Amar & team again in future.

It was a pleasure working with Amar and Sri for our first home purchase. They made the entire home buying experience a smooth and memorable one for us. In our first meeting, Amar stressed on team work which includes us, the buyers as well. At the end, it was the complete team work that won us the home. Amar’s team is a “one stop” shop for home buying. Everyone in the team (Amar/Sri – Realtors®, Narayan – admin, Nicole and team – home loan and Millie – Escrow) played their role to perfection and their professionalism is of the highest quality.

Each member is highly experienced, collaborative, resourceful, and always alert. Whenever a challenging situation presented itself, they knew the corrective course of action and quickly implemented it. They all went above and beyond call of duty to take us to the finish line on-time.

We highly recommend Amar/Sri and their team to anyone who like us are serious about winning competitive bids and close the sale on-time. Amar’s excellent negotiation skill and Sri’s straight to-the-point advises deserve a special mention. Sri was in constant touch throughout the home search process. Sri educated us on what the target list price should be, which localities we should aim for and made sure we were putting our time and effort on property where our chances of winning was realistic. Sri and Amar reached out to us at key junctures, patiently explained the pros and cons, and readily shared their point of view: all of which greatly helped us with the decision making.

Amar won us a very competitive bid without multiple counter offers and successfully negotiated to have the seller pay a major portion of the closing cost – a perfect deal for us. Few days later the bank appraisal came in and the home was valued above the sale price – a true testament to Amar’s extraordinary negotiation skills. Post the offer acceptance, the team worked very hard to close the sale on time.

Personally, we felt it was a huge advantage to work with a close-knit team as they collaborated among themselves to get majority of the work done. This allowed us to give all our time and attention to our son who at the time of purchase was barely a month old. A big thanks to Amar, Sri and team for all their help and care. We will be Amar/Sri’s client for lifetime! Oviya and Mani

Amit Gupta | Sr. Manager Firmware Validation September 11, 2019, Amit was a client of Amar -- Sep 2019

Hi Amar and Sri, I want to take this opportunity to thank both of you and your wonderful team for making this possible for us. To say the least, it was a breeze working with you. I really appreciate you going above and beyond to make it possible for us, even to the extent of guiding selling agent, who was a newcomer in our case.

You really helped lock this deal for us. Even after we were ready to give up on this house, you kept close contact with selling agent and presented our case in a way that we won this house. Also, your team made the whole process so painless that we didn’t even feel a bit of stress while signing biggest deal of our life.

I would recommend you to anyone I come across who is in need of a buying and selling agent. Once again, thanks a lot for all your efforts, we are proud owners of our dream home now.

Thanks and Best Regards

We worked with Amar & team in buying our first home and we felt that it was the best overall experience! Rewinding the clock back, we met Amar first time at his Palo Alto office few months back; thats when he explained how the home search/ buying process is going to be, various steps involved etc.

Looking back, I think we made just the right decision by going with Amar! Now the first step – home search – was when we met Sri Amar, I must say she is extremely dedicated and very knowledgeable about Bay Area real estate market. Sri is the one with whom we interacted the most throughout this entire home buying process, she was always available for us by all means of communications. I remember, after we finalized on our home, that’s when Amar took over the command & his team swiftly got into action in doing the market study, preparing the right offer in a timely manner. We went through all the disclosures, home inspection reports with Amar (I must say that this is a very important step) and we were greatly benefited by his experience in this field.

I think the offer preparation was the challenging part – as that’s when you need to make a right financial decision – during this step, Sri Amar was constantly in touch with us guiding, answering our questions & helping in offer preparation. One last thing to note is, Amar has a solid team & excellent networking skills.

His team consist of a real strong loan officers; this immensely helped us in closing the house in a very short period of time. We were kept in the loop at every step and I personally liked Amar’s way of communication – template emails perfectly outlining execution steps, point of contacts of each step followed by periodic status updates. We highly recommend Amar & his team, for his collaboration in making an informed decision, right deal negotiation & perfect execution of the process.

Thank you Amar and Sri Amar! You are the BEST!

Nitesh Kumar Shrivastav | Senior Engineer at Qualcomm September 2, 2019, Nitesh Kumar was a client of Amar -- Sep 2019

A big thanks to both Sri and Amar for putting a great show to win the home for us.When I first met Amar at palo alto office. I had lot of hesitation with respect to home ownership and I am glad that you helped me in taking the right decision.

We are very fortunate to have Amar and Sri for any future real estate needs. We really appreciate your efforts you put during entire home buying process. Sri has great knowledge about all the neighborhood and understand the market well and individual needs . I highly recommend Sri and Amar for their genuine and honest services during home buying process.

Amar is really good with negotiation and put sincere effort to win the home for the clients

Tushar Patel | Member of Technical Staff August 9, 2019, Tushar was a client of Amar -- Aug 2019

As a first-time homebuyer in Bay Area, the whole process of buying a house, bidding can be very overwhelming and stressful. But with the help of Amar, Sri and his team, it couldn’t have been easier and quicker.

When we began our home-search, from Yelp we found that many buyers in Bay Area are in similar condition greatly helped by Amar and his team. We met Amar at his Palo Alto office where he explained the entire process, his custom search engine for homes and also answered the questions we have about bidding and closing on home, how to consider property valuation.

Amar also introduced us to his wife Sri who works with him and also to his lender (Risha), who was quick enough to get us a pre-approval letter. They have amazing modus operandi where home buying is divided into tasks and executed meticulously. We never though that we will end-up being homeowners so quickly. Amar worked really hard to get our offer accepted. Amar got all the paperwork ready to put in an offer for the house by making an informed decision on the offer price. He worked till midnight for negotiating with seller agent and got our offer accepted. Ever after offer got accepted, Amar and Sri worked with loan officer, insurance team to make sure we will close in short span of 21 days.

Thank you, Amar and Sri, for being so cooperative, kind and humble to us in the whole process and making us the proud owner of our first home in Bay

Melissa Daoud | Associate Marriage & Family Therapist July 19, 2019, Melissa was a client of Amar -- Jul 2019

Hi Amar and Sri, Thanks a lot for your exceptional support. The home buying experience was pleasant for us. Everything happened fast. I still remember how you walk through all the reports/disclosures around mid-night and explained things in short notice, when we asked you to prepare an offer for the house.

Also, your team and your coordination with home loan, home insurance, home warranty and escrow people are exceptional. That makes our life easy as first-time home buyer. You are updating the Key Milestones progress regularly and your availability on the phone if we have any questions/clarifications. Thank you for your support throughout this process. Your support still continues after closing the deal, in terms of guiding us on registering for all utilities, ADT security and even priest for house warming. I’m already start recommending you to our friends.

I’m sure they will have the same pleasant experience with you. Without you, we may not get this house and be a homeowner today. Thanks a lot!!!

Amar is like a power house with great negotiation skills whileunderstanding the needs and sentiments of home buyers. If youare seriously shopping for house, I would highly recommendedAmar as your Realtor®.

He helped us to get our house on our veryfirst offer..

Gaurav Yadav | Engineering @ Snowflake May 22, 2019, Gaurav was a client of Amar -- May 2019

When me and my wife started to consider buying a new home, Amar’s name came up as a highly recommended agent through multiple friends. In our first meeting, Amar went through all the steps of home-buying process and explained different parameters which we need to look at when analyzing any home.

Whenever we were interested in any house, Amar’s wife Sri was extremely thorough in finding out all the pros and cons of that house in a quick time. If not for Sri, we may have ended up bidding for a house which was attractive from outside but had certain health hazard issues. When we decided to bid on the house that we are currently living in, Amar made sure to get the house within our price limit and did not ask us to raise the price during the bidding process.

Also, the entire process from bidding to escrow and closing was completely smooth and there were no delays at any point from Amar’s side. He always tried to keep all the parties involved on their toes and prevented us from any stress. Overall, I would recommend everyone to consider Amar for an honest and smooth home-home-buying experience.

Radhika Radhakrishnan | Modem Hardware Engineer April 30, 2019, Radhika was a client of Amar -- Apr 2019

We were looking for our house in a very short time frame since we had to move out of our rented house unexpectedly. My sister gave Amar’s contact details and he gave us an appointment immediately. We met at his office at Palo Alto.

He was very friendly and explained to us the whole home buying process in Bay Area. He immediately gave us the access to the tool which allows us to filter the listings as per our requirement. He also introduced us to his wife, Sri Amar, who was very diligent in evaluating the value of the property. She also gave us the idea of whether the properties we are looking at is in good neighborhood and of good value. She took out time and came to show us a property which we really liked and put offer.

Amar did a fantastic job in finding the best deal by his awesome negotiating skills. The offer price was strategically decided and Amar and his team worked late night in putting together the bid for the property. He introduced us to his loan officer. We had a very short closing time of 21 days and Amar orchestrated with various teams, Escrow officer, Loan officer and helped us in getting it closed within the given time frame.

Sri and Amar was personally involved in all areas and stayed on top of every activity in the entire process to make sure that we got the perfect home in time!

Raju Balakrishnan | Principal Data Scientist at Orkus April 30, 2019, Raju was a client of Amar -- Apr 2019

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.

Narendra Munagala | GE April 11, 2019, Narendra was a client of Amar -- Apr 2019

We never really had any idea about the steps or terms in purchasing a home. I was a bit reluctant to meet a Realtor® initially but my wife wants us to understand the process to better prepare for the buying process.

We contacted Amar in Feb 2019, he patiently explained to us the whole process of home buying all the ABC’s. He sent us the action items he will take from his side and what steps we have to take from ours. Amar took his time to explain each and every question we asked. He advised us on area and the kind of home would be better for our young and growing family and what qualities we have to see in a house. He used to send the home details he thinks might best fit us. After we take a tour of the homes and share our experience, he would provide valuable suggestions on how the home will fit our needs in the future and any potential issues with the home after going through the disclosures.

In less than a month we zeroed on a couple of homes and his team swung into action to get the required documentation to get the offer ready and going. Even though there is a good amount of competition for the home, he was able to get the seller accept our price. He was able to negotiate a fair price for the home and his team (especially Sri Amar) was in touch with us the whole process.

They were on top of each step and prompt to get the required information and documentation. Amar and Sri made the whole home buying process as easy as possible for us. I highly recommend Amar and his team to anyone looking for home in Bay area. We are more confident after meeting him about buying the home. Thanks a bunch Amar, Sri and his team!!!

Dinesh Tadepalli | SoC Design Manager & Investor April 8, 2019, Dinesh was a client of Amar -- Apr 2019

Here’s our scenario. We decided to sell our home expecting a home sale downturn in the near future and as we were planning to go back to India.

We first spoke to a Redfin selling agent, who hurried us to place it on market asap without suggesting any modifications/house updates. We were skeptical and checked with another local agent (who is well known in our community). She/He did not sound very confident and hinted that there’s a possibility that we have to rent it out due to market being slow since the start of 2019.

Fortunately, we remembered Amar from one of the Linked In posts and tried to give him a try as he has got multiple 5 star reviews from other home owners. He visited us and explained all the details about home selling and was patient in answering to all our concerns and questions. Even though we are a 2 bed 2 bath town home in a community that dominated with more than 3 beds, he took it up as a challenge and we never had to look back. When we decided to go with Amar, there are about 5 town homes (4 of which are 3 beds or larger) and without much traffic to them.

As per Amar’s suggestions and our intuition we upgraded the home with the needed and made sure it’s comparable to a new home that are being sold nearby. Amar then discussed and convinced us on the price that made sense to any buyer who is searching for a home. With his extensive marketing skills, our town house was able to become a Hot Home on Redfin in just 3 days and many people visited in the first open house weekend. We got our first offer the mid of the week after and with his amazing negotiation skills he was able to get the home sold it for more than the listed price, where nearby homes are struggling to get offers for the listed price in a record time of 10 days.

His steadfast execution didn’t stop there – he was able to close the escrow in the next 15 days and by the end of 28 days the home got closed without any issues and in a breeze. Even before handing over the keys, he noticed that the staging company made some dirt due to rains in the entrance and he himself cleaned it without complaints.

I believe Amar will be a valuable agent to anyone looking to sell the home or buy a home in this every changing market in Bay Area. We sincerely thank Amar for achieve this home sale in record time and making it a breeze for us.

Venkata Duvvuri | Data Science Analytics Machine Learning April 2, 2019, Venkata was a client of Amar -- Apr 2019

We met you the first week of September for your guidance to buy a new property and sell our existing one. Your out of the box suggestions helped us when we first approached you to help us with sale of our property and a subsequent purchase of another one in San Jose. Your suggestions helped us decide to go immediately for a purchase of a San Jose property believing the market was moving towards a buyers’ market and later consider a sale or renting of our older one.

Additionally, we did see our current (new) home immediately with you in early September. Your advice on a property in Trestlewood ln. was timely. It helped us avoid pursuing a property despite its apparent appeal. This helped us understand your integrity.

Later, your first and subsequent offers over Belington st. property was convincing and correct. You understood our financial limitation as well as capacities. You did not chase the markup of the property in spite of us wanting the property. It helped us avoid a hyper bidding scenario when I believed in a real estate slow down during that timeframe. This convinced us about your negotiating capabilities and patience.

Finally, when we were about to make an offer for our current new home, your due diligence in figuring out the logistics in spite of it being a convoluted transaction due to ‘abstract judgement’ convinced that you were the person we would go with for the offer and contractual engagement for our new home.

Arvind Amogh | Sr.professional services at Netskope March 26, 2019, Arvind was a client of Amar -- Mar 2019

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.

Nizar Mankulangara | Senior Software Engineer at LinkedIn March 26, 2019, Nizar was a client of Amar -- Mar 2019

It was a great pleasure working with Amar, Sri and team. As we all know home buying process is very stressful and in my case it was very smooth thanks to highly professional team of Amar.

Following are some of the key highlights I noted throughout the whole process The best deal – Negotiation by ALL possible means Perfect Execution of the Process Winning Home with right strategy Personally involved in all areas (Escrow process, Loan and Closing) Collaboration in informed decision making Entire process guidance throughout home buying process Staying on top of every activity in the entire process to make sure end goal is accomplished as smooth as possible We really liked you organized home buying process in to several stages Perfect example of your professionalism.

Sri was awesome in going through the neighborhood and the details surrounding the area giving us the all the Pros and Cons.

Arun Kumar Umayi Kalyanaramudu | Apple Maps Triage and Tools Engineer February 25, 2019, Arun Kumar was a client of Amar -- Mar 2019

Amar and Sri have been thoroughly professional in guiding us through the home buying experience. May it be the idea of writing a letter to the seller (which I learnt later proved to be one of the unique points of our offer), or guiding me in what a good offer price would be, or suggesting a lender who would adhere to the 21 day closing contract.

Amar was instrumental in orchestrating the entire Escrow, loan and closing process with stringent timelines. He referred me to lender for the loan and they were able to beat interest rates offered by other lenders. Amar put in a lot of effort during the offer negotiation phase. His negotiation skills came to the forefront when he prevented the seller from going into the phase of presenting counter offers. His reviews on yelp and LinkedIn tell you the truth about him and how he goes about getting what his clients need. Amar has always been reachable and promptly responds to all phone calls and emails. This built a great amount of confidence in us that we are in good hands during the home buying experience.

We are a family of four and this is our first home buying experience. It certainly relieved us that Amar and Sri are working for us and we can go about our daily routing without losing sanity thinking about the home buying process. His proactive point of execution and status update emails meant we need not spend time calling someone to know in what stage of the process we are in. Sri has, from the beginning, been giving us honest updates about the house, locality and surroundings of the house. She has always been approachable and been more than a friend in letting us know the process updates and also appraising us about the next steps that would come. Both of them have gone out of their way to recommend us ways and means to improve the home in a cost-effective way.

This relationship with Amar and Sri will definitely continue for our future home buying process and I would recommend Amar to anyone who talks to me about a Realtor®.

Richa S | Carrier Certification Engineer at Apple February 19, 2019, Richa was a client of Amar -- Feb 2019

We went to Amar with a house in mind which was listed well below market rate. Although the house was fixer upper, we asked Amar to evaluate it potential and if there are any risks. Amar and Sri did a detailed evaluation of the house and provided us a report and walked us through it.

Next we decided to bid for the house, Amar help us won the bid among many potential house bids. Also we were not the highest cash offer but still he was able to get us the house. There were some delays on our loan process but Amar was able to convince the seller agent to keep patience and continue through the process. Amar managed to get our house for us in peak housing market in a good area.

We would strongly recommend Amar for buying/selling needs..

Amith Kumar MC | Director Of Engineering February 7, 2019, Amith Kumar was a client of Amar -- Feb 2019

I am very happy and thrilled on my new home purchase in Milpitas, CA. We got introduced to Amar through a common friend and instantly he was able to connect with us and understand our needs.

We were primarily looking for new communities and he was able to guide us on asking the right questions to the builder. He would provide various details on different new communities coming up and discuss the pro & cons of it. This helped us narrow down on the right ones. Once we secured our home and paid the advanced for the booking, he followed up continuously until the delivery and helped clarify on various processes involved until we got the delivery.

It was a great experience working with Amar and looking forwarded to get his help in future as well. I have recommended Amar to many of my friends and have got the same feedback. Thanks for all the help.

Jaya Chitti – Rangavajhula | [email protected] February 4, 2019, Jaya was a client of Amar -- Feb 2019

Amar and his team are very responsive and explains even minute details and go over whole process of home buying , pros and cons and risks involved, depending on client’s situation. His team is proactive in identifying issues , if any and help in resolving them. Amar is very honest, straightforward and understands client needs. He actually works for the best interest of the client.

I highly recommend Amar’s team’s services for real estate needs.

When it comes to customer service, Amar you are the best we have seen so far. Top star rating for you and your team Following are few of the highlights in our Journey – We liked really the way you organized the Home buying process in to multiple stages.

First meeting was very great, where you explained all the steps to me and assured that you will be part of our journey till we get the keys – When you had some commitments, you immediately assigned it to one of your best team member – No questions asked when we asked Alicia to guide us on visiting the homes multiple times. She was available whenever we requested her to accompany us for the home search. Wonderful person to work with.

Your team is extremely knowledgeable in the Home selection process be it recommendations or the details of the houses – Sri was awesome in going through the neighbourhood and the details surrounding the area giving us the PROS and Cons – Highlight is your contacts with respect to home closing. Your team is the best when it comes to making the life of Buyers smooth and easy o Sara and her team Sheila, Ozzie are the best lenders from BOA team. They were backing us at every stage and helped in closing the loan faster. Sara helped us in many ways in terms of applying the closing costs to the loan and also arranging for the best interest rate. She also spoke to the seller agent to give the confidence to the buyer.

Notary even praised the BOA team in putting the documents neatly arranged o Gail and Andrea did their job in making sure all the best warranties are available to us. I did not have to research on this and spend my time. Overall my experience was awesome and anytime I will recommend you and your team for any future home buyers. I can be of reference if you need my inputs for any of your future.

GOPIKRISHNA SARIPURI | Senior Software Engineer at ePlus inc. January 3, 2019, GopiKrishna was a client of Amar -- Jan 2019

This recommendation is about our experience working with Amar on purchasing a property. We’ve been to few open-houses and everyone starts asking If we are working with an agent.

When I said no, they try to offer the service. But we were not sure whom to trust. We did our research about the local Realtors® and reached out to a few of them. Few of them reached out to us and offered their services. But we were not satisfied with their responses. My wife was researching and she sent a message to Amar.

We immediately received calls from Amar. He basically enquired about us and has set up an appointment to meet on the coming weekend. We met Amar on the following weekend. He listened to us very patiently and started explaining about the entire process. We were really impressed with the details shared with us. We’ve shared the property details that we liked.

He shared the plan of execution that is very detailed. This includes all the different stages and responsible parties in each state. He was very quick in reaching out to the listing agent and reviewed all the disclosures. Also shared the summary of the details with us. Then he explained to us the strategy to win the offer. He prepared the very competitive offer. Amar came up with perfect execution and involved loan officer also to provide confidence to the seller/agent.

Once the owner accepted the offer, he personally involved in the escrow process, closing loan, title company. Every day he started sharing the status updates via email/phone calls. Without his extraordinary efforts, we wouldn’t have been able to close the deal in two weeks. We’ve never imagined we’d be able to close the deal in this very short duration.

Thank you, Amar, for the outstanding efforts. I’d definitely recommend him for my friends and colleagues.

VISWANATH RAVINDRANATH | Cryogenic engineer December 23, 2018, Viswanath was a client of Amar -- Dec 2018

Right from our first meeting, Amar has always been very detailed and gave us deep insights about the trends and practices of home buying in California. Being first time home buyers, it was a big challenge for us to buy our dream home in the bay area. But with Amar’s immense experience and advise we were able to execute our plan step by step.

Both Sri and Amar explained each and every process that is involved in home buying in a very detailed manner and were always available to help us with our queries. Thank you, Amar and Sri, for helping us in getting our Dream Home!

DHANANJAY PRABHUKELUSKAR | Senior Network Engineer December 18, 2018, Dhananjay was a client of Amar -- Dec 2018

When me and my wife decided to buy a home in one of the most aggressive and expensive markets in all of California, Amar was a godsend. Me and my wife decided to go with Amar after reading reviews online and met him at his office in Palo Alto where he explained to us the details of the home buying and ownership process.

The same day we were introduced through email to Amar’s wife Sri Amar who would be the first to approve of the house after considering various functional aspects like location, neighborhood, layout, natural light, configuration, desirability, functionality and usability before we decided collectively as a team to go ahead with making an offer. Both Amar and Sri Amar were on top of everything, from forward visionary thinking to listening and communicating. They knew the property worth that we were interested in purchasing and they made sure that everything in their power was done to make the buying process successful.

Amar was tactfully aggressive with being one of the first offers when we finally settled on the home that we ultimately bought, and was able to connect with the selling agent and negotiate the finer details, price, and manage the process. Throughout the process, he and his wife kept us in the loop and made sure that we knew every step as it happened. We are more than happy with the price we paid, and are already seeing similar properties in our neighborhood selling for more; a sure sign that Amar helped to negotiate a very aggressive deal on a very aggressive timeline.The process of buying a home in this highly competitive real estate market was very daunting to us, but it made a huge difference to have someone who was so decisive, perceptive and competent on our side.

I firmly believe that we wouldn’t have been possible without Amar’s aggressive and tactful handling of the offer dynamics. We feel relieved that the house we loved at first sight is finally truly ours.

I am writing this to appreciate you, Sri and your team for your extra ordinary services that you have given to us . As a first time Home Buyers, we were very new to the housing market which I believe one of the most competitive Bay area real estate markets. You people are obviously helped us from very beginning; correcting our credit score to Lending process and to getting the home keys.

We would like to appreciate your sure-fire negotiation skills, communication abilities and the insight regarding the real estate industry. The process happened in such well organized way which was the most turning point for winning the deal and we are highly satisfied. Thank you Amar, Sri and your team for such a lovely experience. We would love to work with you in future and highly recommend your services to everyone.

DIVYA YADAV | Software Development Engineer at Amazon Lab126 December 14, 2018, Divya was a client of Amar -- Dec 2018

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.

SRIYA RAJAGOPALAN | Software Engineer November 27, 2018, Sriya was a client of Amar -- Nov 2018

My husband and I were always a little bit concerned as to how we could complete a real estate transaction without ever meeting the agent(s). However, we are now convinced that, with Amar and Sri, it is possible.

1. Selection of home: In retrospect, we really liked touring houses on our own and discovering what we truly wanted for our first home. We also appreciate Sri’s timely advice to get us first-home buyers on the right track.

2. The bidding process: We had a dry-run when we bid on a house for the first time in 2017. So, this time when we won our bid, the process was absolutely clear.

We also appreciate Amar’s aggressive bidding in getting us a great deal. He truly pulled a rabbit out of the hat. 3. Lender recommendation: We were glad that Amar introduced us to Nicole from GuaranteedRate. She was great to work with and clarified all our queries regarding the loan.

Thank you for helping us get our first home in this competitive Bay Area market!

NEHA ANEJA | Pre-Sales Specialist at Quanta Cloud Technology November 1, 2018, Neha was a client of Amar -- Nov 2018

Home buying experience can really be confusing and exhilarating, especially for the first time buyers. Gladly we had Amar and Sri with us so it was an amazing experience for us.
We are a proud homeowner of a beautiful house in this foreign land. I still can’t believe that everything happened so fast and I was really able to buy a house in a record time. Amar and Sri played the pivotal role in it and we will always be grateful for that.
We had just started looking for the house when I contacted Amar on Zillow.

He was prompt in calling back and discussing pros and cons of that house. We went to meet him on September 28th and we got the possession of our house on October 31st. We never ever imagined that everything will be done at such a pace.
Amar was there to guide us at every step starting from getting the pre-approval for loan to getting the possession and even after that. He is a very methodological person and that makes the process so smooth.

I must acknowledge his speed and negotiation skills. He got us that deal for unbelievable $50K under the list price. The best part was that he and his team was taking care of everything. We thank him from the bottom of our heart for convincing the seller for this deal.
Amar and his team gave us assurance at every step and updating us at regularly. They were always tying on top of every activity in the entire process to make sure end process is accomplished as smooth as possible.

I must say Amar is very focused and dedicated and has immense knowledge about the market. I would highly recommend Amar and his team if you want to have a wonderful experience. He has a great team for everything. You think it, he has it.
Wishing him the all the best in helping home buyers like us, buy their dream homes, Thank you once again for everything. You all went above and beyond so that we can get our dream house.

UMA KUMAR RAPAKA | Leading – Cloud & Infrastructure Solutions COE September 3, 2018, Uma Kumar was a client of Amar -- Sep 2018

We had decided to sell our house in Milpitas however we had a vacation planned around the time.
Amar stepped in at the right time and gave us assurance that it will all be taken care. From recommending the staging team, listing the home, hosting open house, promoting the listing to the maximum number of buyers, Amar went the extra mile and executed each step with utmost care and strategy.

He negotiated well and made sure we got a great price on the home. Seamlessly we were able to come back from vacation and complete the closing formalities.

We really thank Amar for all his hard work and meticulous planning and execution.

LINDA JONES | RN & Nursing faculty July 16, 2018, Linda was a client of Amar -- Jul 2018

When we inherited 2 properties from our father, we were presented with the task of renovating and selling the properties. We were all somewhat inexperienced and felt overwhelmed by the task. We considered selling the properties ‘as is’, but decided to do some research and that is how we found Amar.

Amar had sold a property at one of the complexes concerned at a very surprising selling price. He also had a long list of tremendous reviews.
From the very beginning, Amar was clear in his communication. He had a great deal of knowledge about what buyers in Silicon Valley are looking for. He coordinated referrals with contractors and gave us building supply sources. He was detailed and quick to respond to every question and concern. When it was time to list the property, he clearly understood the best strategy to draw multiple interested buyers. He was very skillful in his negotiation and kept us well informed throughout the process.

In addition, he refused to represent the buyer, as he doesn’t want a conflict of interest to the seller, even though that would increase his personal commission.
Amar, through hard work and determination, achieved a record price for our property, with reliable buyers, which was 171,000 over asking price!! He negotiated and executed a quick and painless escrow process, which ended in an early and successful close of escrow. We count ourselves lucky to have found Amar and give him the highest recommendation.

KUNAL SAHU | Software Engineering Manager July 5, 2018, Kunal was a client of Amar -- Jul 2018

“”Stressful”, “frustrating”, “tough” – these are some of the words that usually come to one’s mind when one thinks about buying one’s first home. We have been hunting our first home for the past 6 months, but with no luck. Multiple offers submitted, few got counters and nothing accepted. We were also waiting for our first kid to arrive this summer. Life was chaotic at best until we bumped into Amar (through one of our friends at LinkedIn).

From our very first conversation with Amar, we could feel the difference between him and other agents we have been working with. Amar came across somebody who has in-depth knowledge of the Bay Area real-estate market and knows how to win in pressure situations. He was very very cooperative in understanding our requirements and guiding us through various areas.

With multiple set-backs, we had very little hope about buying it in this aggressive market. Amar assured us that he would try his level best and there is nothing to be worried about. He has a calming presence which soothes the buyers and gives them this peace of mind. Couple of days after submitting our offer, to our surprise Amar came back to us with our offer accepted!!! We are the winners of fierce competition (10 offers) and our offer is not the highest offer. Finally, we settled in a nice corner unit in the heart of Sunnyvale. That was the first one we were working with Amar. We loved the home, its lay out and its neighbourhood.

Amar worked really hard behind the scenes and added that personal touch in negotiating the deal for us. Besides, he was at the fore front of each and every stage of the home buying and saved lot of money in the process. Staying at top of things, he also made us understand the various aspects of being a home owner. He worked with the loan officer, escrow officer, selling agent, appraisal officer, insurance agent and a whole bunch of people to close the deal in less than 15 days.

The speed at which Amar works is truly unbelievable. With him around, one does not need to worry about a thing. Sometimes, I feel that one has 24 hours in a day, but Amar has 30 hours in a day. The amount of stuff he manages to get done is remarkable. One has to meet and work with him to truly understand and experience it. Basically, Amar is a really nice person and lovely to work. He has his heart in this profession and brings the human aspect in the things he does. I can’t recommend enough about Amar’s contribution in fulfilling our dream of being a home owner. He is a ROCKSTAR!

Update 2017 — we have bought a second home with Amar and our experience has not changed even one bit, if not better. If you are a serious home buyer looking for your home in today’s competitive market, get in touch with Amar. He is great to work with and keeps a personal connect.

NAVEEN BACHKETHI | Manager Engineering at VMware June 29, 2018, Naveen was a client of Amar -- Jun 2018

“I started my home search around 9 months ago and today after a long struggle and putting around 10 offers finally I own a house.

This journey could have been much smoother and fun if I would have met “Amarrath” at the starting of it. Nine months ago when I started the house search with my first agent (Not Amar), it looked like driving an uphill without any driving experience.

Experience with my first agent was a nightmare, there was a very little information that my first agent would have about the properties that I would like to see, no grip or very little grip on the market, no team, just standalone. I put continuously 9 unsuccessful offers with him but never got any of them and things went beyond the limit when in a house we put 700K and the house was finally sold in 685K but we did not the house and the comments about my old agent from the listing agent was “where did you got this agent”, That point I understood the importance of real estate agent. It’s not the highest bid you put in market, it’s not highest credit score, but it is the strong real estate agent that gets you the deal, and with my experience I can tell that Amar is THE ONE, who can get you anything you like.

My journey started with Amar after getting introduced through one of my friend and he told lot of good things about Amar, but with my experience with my previous agent was not that comfortable, so did not wanted to jump so did a lot of study on looking at Amar’s LinkedIn profile which was having lot of +ve reviews, so decided to go with him, today sitting in my new house, I feel very fortunate that I met Amar. The 1st offer that was put through AMAR was readily accepted and within 2 weeks AMAR closed the deal, it gave me an extreme piece of mind and a respect and a tremendous confidence for the man (AMAR) and his team. I referred one of my friends to AMAR and there also Amar proved that he is the best, there also his first offer was accepted.

Amar has connections, respect in market and a team which will get you the house with best price.

He has a team starting from loan officer to the closing escrow connections which makes your transaction flawless.
I can say a lot about Amar’s capabilities but here is a list which tells how he helped me:

1. The Best deal negotiation by ALL possible means
2. Perfect execution of the process.
3. Winning property in hot market with right strategy.
4. Personally involved in ALL areas (Appraisal, Loan, Escrow process, and closing)
5. Co-ordination and engagement with WFC and Escrow to ensure loan closing
6. Collaboration in informed decision making
7. Entire process guidance throughout Home BUYING PROCESS.
8. Staying on TOP of EVERY activity in the entire process to make sure end goal is accomplished as smooth as possible.

DINESH K MOHAN | Silicon Architecture Engineer at Intel Corporation June 13, 2018, Dinesh K was a client of Amar -- Jun 2018

Amar, Sri and their staff were top notch and a pleasure to work with in purchasing our first home. Strategic, professional, and accommodating. We are glad that our offer was accepted in a competitive market. Amar’s sharp skill set helped us navigate through negotiations to influence seller to choose our offer.

Amar and Sri has been on top of things and helped us in every step of home buying experience. I also found them to be very knowledgeable of the area and able to bring back good advice and information about the properties. Their extensive experience really helped ease our stress during the hunt. Starting from first meeting till date both were proactive and responded to all queries promptly. Amar introduced us to reliable mortgage broker who helped us secure our loan in efficient manner. Amar helped us through the whole process and after purchase formalities. We are impressed with results.

Thank you Amar, Sri and team for guiding us in the right direction.

If you are looking for a Realtor® that has the knowledge base and ability to get the house you like in a smooth manner then Amar’s team is the way to go!

MANI BHARATHI PANDIAN | Staff Engineer at Qualcomm May 29, 2018, Mani Bharathi was a client of Amar -- May 2018

It was a pleasure working with Amar and Sri for our first home purchase. They made the entire home buying experience a smooth and memorable one for us. In our first meeting, Amar stressed on team work which includes us, the buyers as well. At the end, it was the complete team work that won us the home.

Amar’s team is a “one stop” shop for home buying. Everyone in the team (Amar/Sri – Realtors®, Narayan – admin, Nicole and team – home loan and Millie – Escrow) played their role to perfection and their professionalism is of the highest quality. Each member is highly experienced, collaborative, resourceful, and always alert. Whenever a challenging situation presented itself, they knew the corrective course of action and quickly implemented it. They all went above and beyond call of duty to take us to the finish line on-time. We highly recommend Amar/Sri and their team to anyone who like us are serious about winning competitive bids and close the sale on-time.

Amar’s excellent negotiation skill and Sri’s straight to-the-point advises deserve a special mention. Sri was in constant touch throughout the home search process. Sri educated us on what the target list price should be, which localities we should aim for and made sure we were putting our time and effort on property where our chances of winning was realistic. Sri and Amar reached out to us at key junctures, patiently explained the pros and cons, and readily shared their point of view: all of which greatly helped us with the decision making. Amar won us a very competitive bid without multiple counter offers and successfully negotiated to have the seller pay a major portion of the closing cost – a perfect deal for us. Few days later the bank appraisal came in and the home was valued above the sale price – a true testament to Amar’s extraordinary negotiation skills.

Post the offer acceptance, the team worked very hard to close the sale on time. Personally, we felt it was a huge advantage to work with a close-knit team as they collaborated among themselves to get majority of the work done. This allowed us to give all our time and attention to our son who at the time of purchase was barely a month old. A big thanks to Amar, Sri and team for all their help and care. We will be Amar/Sri’s client for lifetime!

Hi Amar/Sri,
Following is my feedback on the home buying experience we had with you and your team.
We started off on the home buying journey with you almost 1 1/2 years back. We had gone
through 4-5 properties related offer presentations where couple of them we did not get
selected and couple of them we got them and rejected them on contingency basis. During
all this time you had been available whenever we called you and asked about any of the
properties.
Finally beginning of this month(May 1 st 2018) we closed with a successful one.
During this long home buying journey we had with you, we observed the following:

1. You are very diligent in your home analysis with respect to the ROI, Costs, growth
potential, suitability to our needs etc. Really appreciate your insight and knowledge
about all things related to home buying.
2. You are very knowledgeable about the scenarios which would fit my family’s
personal needs.
E.g. In one scenario we had a home that was well below and within our budget (price
wise). You had analysed the growth prospects for my family and gave your feedback
on what are the pros and cons of choosing that property, which allowed us to make
our decision in an informed way.
3. You had given us great advice on which conditions we should be wary of and which
we should be able to mitigate and which we should be able to address.
4. You had good external and internal team setup which basically allowed us to close
the property on time.
5. You had been on top of things that were necessary for closing the property.
6. You had given us your external business contacts for working with different aspects
of owning a home and managing it.
Overall it has been a great home buying experience. It was (and is) great feeling, working
with you and your extended team ( especially Stacey Huang).

SANKET DAVE | Media Engineer at Apple May 7, 2018, Sanket was a client of Amar -- May 2018

If you are here reading this review, it is how we started our search for a Realtor® to represent us. Strong recommendations here as well as a personal recommendation from a friend and we decided to meet Amar to purchase our home.

Just like many of the other recommendations on here have already talked about the well established process Amar & his team follow, we started with meeting Amar at his office, followed by discussing our needs with Sri. Her inputs and ideas on how we could get the best value for our money and improve an existing home were very helpful. She is very approachable through the entire process. We decided to not place an offer on a property we had initially liked at the last minute, Sri was extremely supportive of our decision, regardless of the amount of work the team had already put in. The emphasis is on team work and it shows very well all through the process.

When we finally decided to move ahead on an offer, Amar ensured that our overall offer package was the strongest. Sri kept us up to date on the discussions with the Seller throughout the day. We had little hope we would win the offer as there were multiple offers and the seller could easily counter any of them. But thanks to Amar & Sri, we won the offer on a home we liked without any counters.

Once the offer deal was done, Amar introduced us to a team​ of experts for our loan and insurance needs. The loan was approved in 8 straight days and we closed quickly. We highly recommend Amar, Sri & team and look forward to working with them again in the future for any of our real estate needs.

VIVEK RAJANNA | Senior VP Engineering at Y Media Labs March 19, 2018, vivek was a client of Amar -- Mar 2018

When u have to buy a house in the valley you need to have all support you can get. The house buysing expereince can be daunting for the first time house buyers. When we started to look for house we were went through failed attempts to secure our house, that is when we contacted amar.

Amar bought new focus for us educating us on the market and kind of house we need to be looking out for. Within week of us working with Amar we were able to place offer that was accepted. Amar played huge role in position our offer in best possible manner and also worked through various angle to conveince the buyers agent on our bid. Once the offer got accepted he bought in his team of experts who were able to work with us on pace that was needed to close the house.

I also like the fact that Amar continues to be in touch with us and updating on the market. I would recommend Amar to anyone who is looking for house in valley. Having worked other relators I can say with confidence he is the Best that I have come across.

SANDEEP CHOPADE | Principal at E*TRADE March 17, 2018, Sandeep was a client of Amar -- Mar 2018

Amar is the best Realtor® for all the home-buyers. Buying a house is a very tough process especially with this market condition in south bay. But fortunately we had Amar doing everything for us . He is a very genuine person who has excellent knowledge of the market with his excellent Negotiation skills, we are still thinking about how he managed to win the offer for us from multiple offers . Amar, you encouraged us to buy an independent house when we were compromising with a town house. We never thought that we will be able to get this house but with all your inputs and efforts we got it .

Amar has lots of experience in real estate business and the properties he has sold makes him stand out. He along with his team are working very hard to get the buyers their dream homes ..

Thank you so much Amar for everything, we really appreciate what you have done for us.

SUJATHA KASHYAP | 17 years of turning big ideas into reality March 11, 2018, Sujatha was a client of Amar -- Mar 2018

Amar was my seller’s agent for my Mountain View condo. I currently live in Texas, so this was a remote sale. Amar is an incredibly talented and motivated professional – by leagues the best agent I have ever worked with. Thanks to his exceptional marketing, zeal and talent, he sold my condo for the record high price in my neighborhood, 181K over list price during the off-season!

From the moment I called him till the successful closing, he took care of every detail with the highest degree of excellence. He was personally involved in every aspect of the sale, from staging to marketing to appraisal to escrow process – everything was executed flawlessly and on-time.

Especially as a remote seller, I greatly appreciated how worry-free the whole experience was for me. I know my home sale was in the best hands possible, and Amar exceeded every expectation I could have ever had in selling my home.

SHIVA VAIDYA, PMP, CISA | IT Transformation Management February 28, 2018, Shiva was a client of Amar -- Feb 2018

Amar and his wife Sri make a formidable team. During the initial days of visiting open houses and narrowing down the right areas with good school district, Sri was an excellent guide having in-depth conversation about investing in the right locations and advising us on each home thoroughly. Since my husband and I both have hectic work schedules, Sri was able to accommodate calls after hours for any questions/concerns. Her knowledge of the market, areas and insights based on our needs was critical. On one home which we really liked and seemed good at face value, Sri was able to advise us on this not being a good investment in the long term since it might lack appreciation value, this was valuable advice since most Realtors® hesitate to tell the truth and might not stop you from making wrong home buying decisions.

The first meeting with Amar convinced us that he is a professional and has the right expertise to guide us through the home buying process in this intensely competitive Bay Area market. We were proven correct when within 2 months of home search. When we moved to the next phase of making an offer on a home of interest, Amar stepped in with his expertise to guide us on the right
offer prices while ensuring appreciation and appraisal gaps are well accounted for. Amar and Sri’s guidance helped us be the second highest offer on the table. Amar excellent negotiation skills was able to win us the offer despite the highest offer being 40K more than ours. Amar/Sri collaborated with us on every aspect of the process/strategy and kept us informed throughout on the progress.

During the escrow/appraisal process, we were concerned on potential appraisal gaps. Amar and Sri went above and beyond to personally met with the appraiser to ensure the appraiser understands the local market and right value of the home.

Our family can highly recommend Amar/Sri based on our experience. We will be happy to work with Amar/Sri if we chose to buy another home !

SMITHA SATHI NAIR | Cisco January 7, 2018, Smitha was a client of Amar -- Jan 2018

When we set out to buy a home, the market conditions were the most difficult for any buyer. We had unsuccessfully already put in offers on a couple of homes. But from our very first meeting with Amar, he was able to instill a confidence in us. Sri pitched in, and was giving us very insightful guidance on how to go about the whole process. Both Amar and Sri were constantly in touch with us, and we eventually zeroed in on a property.

Where most agents would leave it on the buyers to look for properties in a crazy market as this, Amar and Sri were working more than we did to select the home for us. We are extremely grateful and inspired by their approach.

After the offer went through, they guided us through every step and successfully closed the home buying process in a very short time. And all along, they made it so seamless for us, while they were working out so many details in the background. Amar and his team are commendable in their commitment and approach to the job.

MANU NARUR MANJEGOWDA | Security Engineer at Apple January 7, 2018, Manu was a client of Amar -- Jan 2018

Working with you (Amar Realtors®) was a great experience for us. Within a month after started working with Amar we found our dream house.

We had worked with 2 other bay area Realtors® before and the experience was bad. Due to our personal reasons we were in a hurry to buy a house and had almost lost hope after a long search. But once we met Amar, he and his wife Sri made this happen for us so quick which seems like a miracle!

The significant difference that we noticed with Amar and others is that Amar’s home buying process along with his negotiation skills and ideas in making an offer stronger makes him unique.

At our first visit with Amar , he discussed home buying process, our requirements, budget and helped us set up right expectations with his frank opinion. We found this helpful esp. when buying home for the first time.

Additionally, the home buying process what Amar Realtors® follow is quite impressive where as a team Sri and Amar looked at various functional and technical aspects of the house and provided their insight. This again helped us in capturing some aspects that went unnoticed.

There are a lot of factors which gave us satisfaction working with Amar and have summarized below :
First of all his ideas in making a strong offer is impactful.
He followed up closely with the selling agent and negotiated very well to win the bid with multiple counter offer situation.
With his excellent negotiation skills, he negotiated 10K$ less than the offered price after the offer was accepted in Willows of Willow Glen San Jose.
The team’s active involvement and coordination through out the process-escrow, loan, closing process was quick and very efficient. Good collaboration.
As an experienced Realtor® Amar’s foresight is excellent .He gives heads up and immediately suggests work around in tough situations.
His encouragement and guidance in making offers irrespective of whether we make a winning offer or a lower priced one gave us good understanding of bidding process.

Overall , me and my husband are very thankful to Amar Realtors® in executing a plan to find a house as per our requirements.We will definitely continue to work with Amar in future and recommend to all our friends

ABHIJEET BHALERAO | Storage system designer -> data engineer October 31, 2017, Abhijeet was a client of Amar -- Oct 2017

We were impressed with Amar right from the first time we met him in his office. Even though we told him we were not seriously looking at homes right now, he was onboard. Amar gave us an overview of the entire home buying process, what to look at, and in demand areas.

Sri, Amar and their entire team is usually on top of things. Sri is very responsive and gives very frank opinion about any house we ask her about. When we found our dream home, we were sure we would never get it. But Amar worked his magic and got us the house!

After our offer was accepted, Amar & team guided us in every step and have been as responsive and helping us close the house on time and without any issues. Amar’s team (lender, insurance agent, home warranty and others ) were very helpful in closing the home in 3 weeks as promised in the offer.

We are extremely happy that we went with Amar, Sri and their team. I have doubt if it would’ve been possible to get our dream home in less than 3 months of meeting Amar in his office! We have already been talking and recommending Amar to all our friends and relatives looking into buying a home in the near future.

RAM ELANGO | Sr. Data Analyst/Business Intelligence Lead October 4, 2017, Ram was a client of Amar -- Oct 2017

I would like to share my home buying experience with Amar and Sri.

I met Amar after reading reviews online and we met at his office and during my visit he explained me the process in detail and I left the place with confidence and comfort that we have met a good human being who is also becomes to be a Realtor®.

Sri used to send me open house schedule and explain me the positive and negatives of the house which helps 1st home buyers like me, she is very knowledgeable and have lots of patience to explain.

Within few days of my house hunt, I liked a house and I updated Amar and Sri on the same and what happens next is all miracle but I was fortunate to see it happen and am still not able to believe it.

This is the only home I liked and this is the only home I told Amar and he got it for me with his high negotiation skills, every task he performs I know for sure Amar puts his heart and soul and his 200% of his energy to make it happen. He has a great communication skill of how to work with various players in the transaction, he knows when to fall back or to move forward to make things happen which benefits the buyer.

I have heard many home buying experience from my friends and relatives but what happened to me is simply great. The house I got had 2 all cash offers and I was dependent on home loan but it’s Amar pure excellent execution skills that I got this house.

Amar guided me throughout the process and he was on top of all key dates and he helped me get home warranty, home loan and home insurance. He is very systematic, punctual, dedicated and he is a great human being.

Amar and Sri is like a family member to me.
If you get to work with him and I am sure you will say “I am right”.

You buy a small budget house or a big budget house… Amar is always the same and the end results is always SUCCESS.

God Bless Amar, Sri and their family !!!

Thanks,
Ram and Vinita

MUKESH GUPTA | Senior Director of Product Management September 30, 2017, Mukesh was a client of Amar -- Sep 2017

We hired Amar to sell our house in Milpitas. The process started with Amar walking through our house and suggesting improvements to the house so it shows up well. He also recommended a contractor who did all the remodeling/fixing and made the house beautiful. Amar also provided reference to a good stager for staging the house.

Once the house was staged, Amar took over completely and we didn’t have to do anything except following his instructions. He marketed the house very heavily with high quality pictures, videos, brochures, virtual reality tours, social media, and by personally distributing flyers to the entire neighborhood. The results of his marketing efforts were astonishing. We ended up receiving 14 offers with one weekend of open house. He worked all day tirelessly with the potential buyers negotiating with them on the day of the offer. We ended up with the offer that was $200K+ (20%) above the list and was the highest $/sqft., not just in the history of the neighborhood but probably in the history of Milpitas.

Once we were in contract, Amar worked with appraisers, loan officers, escrow, and the seller’s agent to bring the transaction to a successful closure without us having to do anything at all other than signing the papers. He is an amazing agent who takes his job very seriously and performs far beyond the call of duty to maximize the value for the seller. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to sell their house.

SUMIT SINGHAL | Staff Design Verification Engineer at Broadcom September 21, 2017, Sumit was a client of Amar -- Sep 2017

This was my first home buying experience and Amar and his team made it a pretty great one. The best thing I liked was working with the whole team and not just with one person. Amar was the initiator as he explained to me how this whole process works and what his strategy is. But, then his Wife “Sri” took the charge on answering all my queries and suggesting which open houses are worth going for. Once I had liked the place, they left no stone unturned to win the offer.

Amar is flawless in his execution and he enjoys the buying process, evident from the fact that he represents more buyers than sellers, giving him an extra edge in the buying process. I would recommend Amar any day.

AKSHAY GANDHI | DevOps Production Engineer September 8, 2017, Akshay was a client of Amar -- Sep 2017

Negotiation skills, strategy and excellent support team is what differentiates Amar and team.
Finding home is 50-50% work between buyers and an agent. When you work with Amar, he provides the value in getting the deal done smoothly and effectively. Though Sri and Amar can help and guide about finding the right house, deciding the area, researching the local market etc… it is more of buyers choice.

We liked one house and told Amar and Sri that we were interested. Amar did an excellent job advising us on home condition, value, local housing market, and overall area. Sri and Amar also pointed us in the right direction to find other relative information. Once we finalized that we want to put an offer for the house, he took over the process. Sri kept us in loop through out the process, during this time I witnessed how right strategy, negotiation skills and process works the wonder. Amar was clear and calm during the process and ultimately finalized the house for us. From the time we liked the house and told Amar and Sri about it, it baraly took a day to put an offer and within 2 days offer was accepted.
Amar and team’s support continued to be there even after loan process was over. Whole loan process was smooth and fast. Here is where I saw how much difference it makes to have an excellent support team. When you work with Amar, you actually work with experianced team of professionals, where each member has a specific role and they execute on it without any flaws.

We got the house in very first offer. Ours was not the highest offer. During negotiation phase, at one point, I was willing to increase offer by 20k but Amar advised against it and followed his strategy to win the house for us. It is rare to get house in first offer in current market. Individual experience will be different but I can tell that when you work with Amar, at right time, with right strategy, sooner or later he will get you in the house of your liking. Amar is a sincere, professional and trustworthy Realtor®. He is in this occupation because that is what he likes to do. He takes pride in the deals he makes and does the transactions as his own.

PADMA ARUMILLI | Tech Lead Development at WellsFargo September 1, 2017, Padma was a client of Amar -- Sep 2017

We are happy to choose Amar and team in our Home selling process. After having an informative talk with Amar we just followed his advice and suggestions with complete trust. The transaction was smooth and transparent.

Amar provided right guidance to get the best price that met our expectations without any hassle of open house or staging. The price is the best considering the history of the property already in market last year and delisted by another agent. We whole heartedly refer Amar to our friends or anyone looking to Buy or Sell the houses.

Amar is always the first person we consult for our Real estate needs.

PREETI KOTHARI | Business Analyst-Oracle(Contract) August 21, 2017, Preeti was a client of Amar -- Aug 2017

We worked with Amar on selling our Home recently and he exceeded our expectations on pricing front. To to honest, there is this sense of tentativeness amongst many of us working with Realtors® nowadays but I can vouch that there are tangible benefits working with someone like Amar.

Amar brings a sense of orderliness to the process and works out a detailed plan with you. Yes, it’s a joint ownership of the process and he’d drive you hard to make sure you follow through which eventually would be to your benefit. There are many things that he’d take care of in the background which would help process go smoother. In all, his diligence and perseverance are big assets in my opinion.

The Home that Amar sold, fetched the highest price EVER SOLD $/sq.ft in the neighborhood/community and that’s the testimony to his selling strength, negotiating skills and above all extensive online Marketing by working around the clock.

Even in your interactions you could sense his steadfast focus towards goals whether his own or your shared goals with him. This quality of him to optimize for those goals and showing that through his results is what I feel sets him apart.

SRINIVAS GANTASALA | Consultant at Tech-NetInc July 29, 2017, Srinivas was a client of Amar -- Jul 2017

Amar and Sri helped us in getting our first home and made Home buying a memorable experience. Amar asked us to meet him in the office to find out what our preferences are and from then he has guided us, and very responsive in every step of the process from Pricing to Loan to Escrow to Closing. Amar also saved money in home price and closing cost due to Amar’s tremendous knowledge and negotiation.

Our first time Home buying would have been nerve- wracking and confusing, if Sri would not have helped us answer all the very small doubts that we had. Sri was always there for us and guided us throughout the whole process and gave us examples how we can make proper decisions on important items. She always responded to our phone calls and answered them with lots of patience and made us understand everything and made our first time home buying experience a really pleasant one.

Amar’s knowledge is tremendous in negotiating, with the agent and in writing attractive offer that helped us in getting the house we wanted. we were looking to buy our first home for many years now. We started to loose hope in getting our home. Then we met Amar through one of our friends reference. Amar gave us tremendous confidence, and in less than a month we made an offer and bought our first home.

Amar guided us through every step of the way and made our dream come true. I strongly recommend Amar and Sri as they have tremendous knowledge and good negotiating skills. God Bless Amar and Sri.

KRISHMA DUTTA |Product Owner / Software Engineer July 20, 2017, Krishma was a client of Amar -- Jul 2017

Amar and Sri helped us in getting our first home and made home buying a memorable experience. We started our home search this summer and made decision to go with Amar as he had amazing reviews on Zillow and Yelp. As a first-time home buyer, we were little nervous throughout the process. But Amar and his team explained us the whole home buying process very clearly. We are not easy people when it come to questions and clarifications but Amar and his team kept us amazed with their professionalism and dedication.

On the day of bidding Amar made up a point to be at the seller’s real estate agent’s office to make all the negotiations. Amar’s team had been instrumental especially getting loan done within 21 days and providing us with best market rate available.

We have heard stories from our friends about how it takes more than 6 months to get a home in Bay Area. I would say between meeting Amar and find our new home was all done within less than 1 month. I would highly recommend Amar and his team, if it was not for him we wouldn’t have been enjoying our new home. Overall, we are quite happy to work with Amar and Sri and we would definitely refer Amar and his team in future to all our acquaintances.

SANTHIRAJU DODDA | Manager at Invecas July 17, 2017, Santhiraju was a client of Amar -- Jul 2017

Amar helped us to SELL our HOME for THE RECORD PRICE in our community.

In Summary, I have authorized Amar to accept 1050K offer that is 52K MORE than the LISTED PRICE. However, Amar worked NON-STOP with Agents and negotiated the Offer PRICE to 1120K. The additional 70K was well above our expectations and we didn’t expected that PRICE at all. We are extremely happy with Amar RESULTS – 122K MORE than the LISTED PRICE for the TOWN HOME.

Amar puts his heart and soul in the process to get TOP DOLLAR for the SELLER. We strongly believe, Amar RESULTS speaks for itself time and again.

Amar’s KEY Strengths to get TOP DOLLAR for HOME:

1. Extensive ON-LINE MARKETING & Market KNOWLEDGE

2. Realtor®’s NETWORKING & Online REPUTATION

3. Multiple Offers GENERATION & Sure-fire NEGOTIATIONS

4. Perfect PANNING & Peace of mind EXECUTION

5. Right GUIDANCE & Team of EXPERTS

DILIP RANGAN | FinTech Evangelist | Strategy July 16, 2017, Dilip was a client of Amar -- Jul 2017

This is a sincere, heartfelt review of our recent home selling process through Amar & his team.
Amar promosied us BEST DEAL & TOP Dollar – and boy, did he deliver!

Strategy planning & execution – Getting the house on the market :
Once we decided to sell the house, Amar was “on the job”. He again personally walked through the house and developed a plan with clear timelines on what would be the right strategy to attract potential buyers. Because of Amar & his teams’ rigorous planning & coordination, the house was ready to be on the market in 15 days! Again, Amar recommended and engaged the best in business to stage the house & have professional pictures taken to appeal to a wide range of potential buyers.

Getting maximum traffic & eyes on the house:
What came next was nothing but the best. During our initial session, Amar had mentioned that he would leverage best-in-class, digital age marketing techniques. At that time, we didn’t know what to expect. In addition to listing on MLS, Amar leveraged his IT background to ensure that any & all real estate searches & websites pulled up our house’s ad & listing.

Amar used his extensive network of Realtors® to market this house and ensured that there was a lot of traffic both online & in person viewing the house. This generated a lot of interest in the house with potential buyers.

Generating the best offer: IN RECORD TIME
The extensive marketing and the interest generated in the pool of potential buyers helped us get an offer on the house in record time! Within 36 hours of listing the house, Amar was able to solicit an offer from a potential buyer. What needs to be commended here, is Amar’s negotiation skills. Gauging that this was a good potential, Amar ensured that he maximized the offer with minimal contingencies. He relentlessly went back and forth with the buyers’ agent and drafted an offer that was too good to resist! Amar provided us solid advice & guidance on the different aspects of the offer. He recommended that we take the offer considering it was approx 200K more than the listing price and a complete offer with minimal chances of falling through. All this on a Sunday!

Managing the contingency period:
The mark of a good service provider lies in the follow through during the process and here is where Amar and his team excels! During the contingency period and before the closing, Amar showcased his professionalism in carefully handling the buyer requests and ensuring that the offer was executed completely.

Closing:
Amar and his team continued their excellent work and commitment by following up with every aspect of closing. Such due diligence, commitment to the clients, knowledge of the business, negotiation skills and high quality deliverable ensured that we closed our home within 3 weeks of listing it on the market for the highest per square feet price in Santa Clara till date!

LAKSHMANA CHARI VAITIYAM GUNASEKARAN | Sr.Integration Engineer July 11, 2017, Lakshmana Chari was a client of Amar -- Jul 2017

Our HOME Buying experience was excellent and stress free with Amar, Sri and Team. It is not easy in the current market to get a single family home in Bay Area. I was very skeptical and almost lost hope, and early 2017 I put myself out of market. There came along my new to be home in market, both me and my wife liked the layout and we called Amar and Sri to proceed on it.

Amar and team wrote an excellent offer though quoted less than competition, the offer terms were lucrative. All credit goes to “Amar”.
Amar has strong negotiation skills and persuaded listing agent to accept our offer less than the competition offers. On decision day, Amar called me and congratulated me, “Our offer got accepted”.
Amar has excellent field connections, he introduced me to a lender who offered a competitive rate for 10% down, and the entire process was seamless. Being a new home Buyer, I was little panicking but Amar and team total made it seamless by doing all the heavy weight lifting for me. I was kept appraised on all the process. Amar is very efficient, and he stays top of the core process, and really makes the right move at right time.

I strongly recommend Amar and Team, if you are looking to Buy or Sell HOME.

KAPIL DHOLAKIYA(LION) | Staff Design Verification Engineer July 7, 2017, Kapil was a client of Amar -- Jul 2017

Our Home buying experience was excellent with Amar and Sri Team. Amar and Sri have thorough knowledge about the area. They guided us in making the right decision based on their years of experience in real estate. Amar has very strong negotiation skills that saved us money on the house. In addition, the house has already gained some equity on it before we moving in. Their strong connection in the field, the entire process was seamless. We were informed in every step of the process by his team and constant call with Sri although the process was running in the background.

Amar is fast, reliable and responsible. He is very efficient and stays on top of everything. Answers all questions promptly and provides great professional support. I would recommend him to anyone buying/selling their homes.
Sri stays on the look out for new listings and never stopped searching for us
It was stressful, but Sri was so understanding and more than accommodating.

I don’t know how we would have got through it without their team efforts!
I would like to highly recommend them ,whoever is looking to buy/sell home.

MEGHASHYAM SRIVATSA | Senior Solutions Engineer June 7, 2017, Meghashyam was a client of Amar -- Jun 2017

Hi Amar and Sri

We have all been through a very busy week. But we are all smiling at the end of it. You may have been through this anxious phase many times before, but you kept the same amount of persistence and energy as you did on the very first day we met you, and you fought hard for us in getting this house. That truly shows that you do care about your clients and you do this for the happiness it brings to your clients. For me and Archana, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to go through something like this and we are glad that we have you on our team.

Amar and Sri, you have been very humble and honest with us from the start. You encouraged us when we were making the right decisions along the way, and at the same time you did not force us into any particular house. These are very good qualities in a Realtor®. You treated each offer we put as though it was your own home and put your 100% effort into it. I have seen friends who went through 10-15 offers before getting a house, but with you we got our dream house in just 3. Even though we lost 2 houses before this, we always had a confident feeling going into each of those offers since convincing a seller into accepting an offer is a skill that you excel at, and none of the other buyer agents can even come close to it.

Your advice, experience and insights into the real estate and how to create a “winning offer” is an art, and we regard it highly. I know we have a long way to go in this transaction, but we have got a great start.

Some comments and advice from us to other buyers in the market, and why we recommend Amar 100%:

We started looking for houses sometime in January 2017 with our previous Realtor®. We had put offers on 2 houses and had lost both of them. Although our previous Realtor® was good, you need somebody who can win you the battle when it matters most. Good houses (houses that matches ALL your criteria) rarely comes to market, but when it does, you CANNOT afford to lose it. Because good houses in neighborhoods like Milpitas and Berryessa get atleast 20 offers! With the interest rate rise just around the corner and the inventory being at all-time low, we did not want our house hunt to take its own due course. Instead, we wanted to shift gears and go with someone who is proven to have won against all-cash-offers! There are not may Realtors® who can win against all-cash offers or offers with 40-50% downpayment! But Amar is one of those.

So on April 1st 2017, I communicated with Amar over email since he came highly recommended by our lender. I still remember my first phone call with Amar. We were out on a hike with friends, so I told Amar that I want to reschedule the meeting since we’d be dirty and sweaty from the hike. He said “dont worry about it, this is Bay Area and you are supposed to be hiking” and invited me to his Palo Alto office on a Sunday. We met with him on the same hike-day and had a long and thorough conversation about what we were looking for, what kind of..

Maggie Rangan | Senior Program Manager – Personal Systems Strategy May 22, 2017, Maggie was a client of Amar -- May 2017

This is a sincere, heartfelt review of our recent home selling process through Amar & his team. Amar promised us BEST DEAL & TOP Dollar – and boy, did he deliver!
Prior to putting the house on the market:
Initial strategy session: Before we decided to sell the house, Amar spent time with us to understand our circumstances, financial ability, and our requirements. This was an in-depth session during which it was clear that Amar was an expert in his area and is one of the best in his business. We walked away with clear next steps and referrals to financial experts who could help us decide based on educated facts.
Strategy planning & execution – Getting the house on the market : Once we decided to sell the house, Amar was “on the job”. He again personally walked through the house and developed a plan with clear timelines on the right strategy to attract potential buyers. He listed out the pros & cons of the house meticulously and drafted a plan to get max $. He gave us a list of work/upgrades to be done on the house to increase its market value. He also went out of his way to recommend service experts (contractors, inspectors etc).
Amar followed up with us diligently every step of the way while we got the house ready to go on market. Because of Amar & his teams’ rigorous planning & coordination, the house was ready to be on the market in 15 days! Again, Amar recommended and engaged the best in business to stage the house & have professional pictures taken to appeal to a wide range of potential buyers. Additionally, he ensured that we had all the relevant documentation on upgrades, city permits, etc. on hand to be able to respond quickly when we had an offer.
Getting maximum traffic & eyes on the house: What came next was nothing but the best. During our initial session, Amar had mentioned that he would leverage best-in-class, digital age marketing techniques. At that time, we didn’t know what to expect. In addition to listing on MLS, Amar leveraged his IT background to ensure that any & all real estate searches & websites pulled up our house’s ad & listing. Within a few hours of the house being listed on MLS, it moved up to be the “hottest” house on the market on Redfin crossing 500 views in 24 hours and being “favorited” by more than 100 people.
Amar used his extensive network of Realtors® to market this house and ensured that there was a lot of traffic both online & in person viewing the house. This generated a lot of interest in the house with potential buyers.
Generating the best offer: IN RECORD TIME The extensive marketing and the interest generated in the pool of potential buyers helped us get an offer on the house in record time! Within 36 hours of listing the house, Amar was able to solicit an offer from a potential buyer. What needs to be commended here is Amar’s negotiation skills. Gauging that this was a good potential, Amar ensured that he maximized the offer with minimal contingencies. He is relentless!

THAYA RAJENDRAM | Intuit April 5, 2017, Thaya was a client of Amar -- Apr 2017

Amar helped us to buy a property in Bay Area which was one of the hottest markets in the world. We provided our requirements, and he had found the best that out in the market with reasonable price and negotiated with the seller to get it secure as quickly as possible.

Amar has a group of people with wide knowledge in real estate area to execute the tasks with perfection and jet speed.

I am very much satisfied with our purchase of our house with very short time and highly recumbent to anyone.

DON BROWN | Manager at ProForma Industries, LLC March 27, 2017, Don was a client of Amar -- Mar 2017

Having been in Rotary for the past 34+ years, I know most of the Real Estate Agents and Brokers in Fremont including top agent. However in reviewing Amar Amarnath performance and execution of selling homes in my neighborhood I chose to use Amar as our agent for selling our property. Amar knows the right strategy to extensively market the home to sell at a higher price. I could have gone with some of those I have known for years. However I am not certain they could have accomplished what Amar was able to achieve.

Example: The sale of another Home 3 doors from us that was listed for $859K and sold for $910K by Amar Amarnath. The home in my opinion should have sold for $810K as they had done nothing in upgrades to the property including kitchen and bathrooms. The carpet was from the time it was originally built in 1988 and they had not done any painting or refinishing of the cabinets. I have mentioned to Amar that I would have discounted it by $50,000 as it needed a lot of work.

The entire home selling process from the beginning to the end was perfectly executed by Amar and team flawlessly. Amar personally involves himself and deliver absolutely the best results for his clients. Amar doesn’t not represent both buyer and seller for the same transaction. This clearly shows his level of standards and ethics in Real Estate business. His constant guidance in whole process is priceless. I certainly recommend him for you to work with. Hopefully this is beneficial for you.

SHRUTHI KADAMBI | Quality Development Engineer March 19, 2017, Shruthi was a client of Amar -- Mar 2017

It was our first home and we ventured into the real estate market with lots of anticipation. But right from the day we met Amar, we were put at ease. He answered all our queries and provided us the right insights. His team are good project managers and provided a clear and concise check list of tasks and who is responsible for carrying them out. This made the home buying process clear for us and made it easy to navigate the process. Their valuable advice helped us find our dream home.

Amar, Sri and his team are simply amazing. They provide constant timely updates, are very proactive and highly diligent. By working with Amar, you can be rest assured that you will be guided through the entire home buying process right from day one until closing.

Amar’s excellent negotiation skills combined with a hardworking and resourceful team makes them the BEST in Bay Area.

SACHIN PARKHE | Spark Scala Developer January 23, 2017, sachin was a client of Amar -- Jan 2017

I would say Amar and Sri is a perfect team to get right home at right price.
In the entire home buying process, Amar did guide us each milestone inuring the home buying process and got right people into the game at right time.

This made our home buying process pretty seamless. Amar has good area of expertise, knowledge and negotiation skills.
Even after closing the deal, Amar managed to get us 5K credit from seller. We are glad to choose Amar and definitely recommend Amar.

KARTHIK KRISHNAMOORTHY | Staff Hardware Engineer January 20, 2017, Karthik was a client of Amar -- Jan 2017

5 years ago I felt buying a house in bay area would be a hard reality for me given the rise in house prices and if we need to buy an affordable house I would need to go all the way of bay area. I was still contemplating buying a house, then one of colleagues asked me to meet Amar and check with him. Me and my wife met Amar at his office and told we were looking for and boom 2 month later I was an owner of a single family home in rising Milpitas area.

Even though this sounds like a fairy tale, I should say it was the hard work and drive of Amar and his team to help pull it through.
Amar and Sri send me list of places for open house to visit and when we liked one the home,we let him know about it. I thought we were already late to put an offer as I didn’t have a pre approval. Amar pulled his strings and introduced me to Stacy for mortgage and within 24 hours and I had a preapproval and the offer was submitted.

I was told the house had around 7 offers most of them more than what I offered to pay. Amar and his team helped to negotiate and got the deal done and now within 2 days my offer was approved. I couldn’t believe they pull it off. Anyway after this is the next set of steps to start the financing for the house. In this process, I wanted to check with other lender for better rate and the bank promised that could provide a better rate than what Stacy provided. I conveyed my decision to Stacy regarding this and went ahead with other lender.

But this is where the real game started, the other lender wanted documents after documents and after a week said they wouldn’t be able to really my case through with their underwriter and they were still trying their best. I talked to Stacy and Amar after that and they understood the situation and pulled this out for me. To be honest throughout the whole process I was not still committal to Stacy whether I would go with her and it was Amar and his team who convinced Stacy to continue with my financial process and glad they did.

Iam not sure if any lender would be ready to do so much work when you are uncommitted and I am glad Stacy really decided help me. I think the reason she was ready to pursue the case was because the trust she had in Amar. Thanks again Amar for this…
They handled all the paper work, went through the house inspection report and answered any questions I asked. I know sometimes I irritated Amar by asking him multiple questions as novice buyer.

I should say this—if you are looking for energetic, aggressive and honest person to help you with your house search I would say talk to Amar…He would understand your needs and get you the right house. I am glad I reached to Amar and thank him and his team on behalf of my wife and myself to buy our first house as a couple.

Thank you Amar…Wish you more success.

JAY MUKHERJEE | Sr Software Developer at CPA.com December 31, 2016, Jay was a client of Amar -- Dec 2016

Amar and Sri went above and beyond to make our home buying experience an absolute joy. Right from the very onset, they were on top of every activity, They thought about the client’s needs and requirements and always treated that as top priority.

This gives the much needed peace of mind as a buyer. They were always available at the most minimum notice. Above all, they have the knowledge and experience that makes it a wining combination. I recommend Amar and Sri for anyone looking to buy their next home. We certainly will work with them again…

MANOJ DEVPURA | Sr. Systems Reliability Engineer at Nutanix December 30, 2016, Manoj was a client of Amar -- Dec 2016

We hired Amar as our Agent as buyer after referral from our friend. It was great working with Amar and team. Amar is knowledgeable, understanding, honest and extremely thorough. This was our first time buying a home, and Amar’s expertise and advice was invaluable.

He was very patient and helpful, and maintained great communication throughout the entire process. We were about loose the house because of counter offers and Amar made all his effort and made sure we get this house.

We really appreciate his patience to answer our queries. I am happy to recommend Amar, especially to first-time home buyers in need of some extra hand-holding.

SHYJU KOZHUKKUNNON | Data Engineer – Analytics at Apple December 24, 2016, Shyju was a client of Amar -- Dec 2016

Amar is a master negotiator. Once he is convinced on a price and submits an offer, he will go at great lengths to get it accepted. He is very persuasive and talks to the point.

He has a great team working with him round the clock to take the offer till closure and beyond.

RAJESH MEHTA | Data Analytics Leader December 19, 2016, Rajesh was a client of Amar -- Dec 2016

It was a great experience working with Amar while Buying and Selling our Homes. He knows what he is doing and you can trust him for his execution. When he sends you a note with “Don’t worry, I am on top of it”, he really means that.

He is great at the execution and you can depend on him to get the best results. He is very knowledgeable in real estate business and sold our home for the best price ever in off season. I would recommend him for any of your real estate needs.

GAJENDRA SINGH | Software Engineer at Google December 16, 2016, Gajendra was a client of Amar -- Dec 2016

We are few of those fortunate people who get their first offer accepted and that too at listed price, this wouldn’t have been possible without our Real estate agent Amar who imparted the knowledge to under difference between owning a house cost and rent.

Throughout the home buying process both Amar and Sri patiently responded our queries and made us comfortable. Amar and his team was very efficient in closing the deal and providing all the documents required for title company and lender.

ADITYA RANE | Software Engineer at Apple December 12, 2016, Aditya was a client of Amar -- Dec 2016

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.

Amar / Sri,
It was pleasure working with you, I tried with other Realtor® before coming to you . We are just at the edge of loosing hope . Just thought of trying with other Realtor®, by chance we met you. In our first meeting itself you gave us confidence & we believed in you. You just made the deal success with ease in the very first bid. Your strategy & your team’s close follow-up’s, hard work was the key to the successful closure of this deal .

We were very happy when you were able to convince seller in coming down the price which saved us 15K. I definitely rate you on 5/5 with no second though. I already referred you to almost every one whom I know who is in market looking for a home. A Big THANK YOU to E=MC2.

PRAKASH GUPTA | Software Engineer, Tools & Infra at Google December 1, 2016, Prakash was a client of Amar -- Dec 2016

Buying a home in Bay Area is a herculean task given the fact that properties are sold out by the time even you blink your eyes. However our home buying experience with Amar and his team was truly immeasurable.

From day one since the our meeting the service provided was exceptional. He helped us close the deal less than 10K among many potential interests with higher offers with right strategy of meeting personally with Seller’s agent and presenting our offer with fully backed team supporting our credit score and 21 days of closing time.

Amar real estate experience got us seller’s first choice to respond against counter offers and through his exceptional negotiation skills we got refrigerator, dryer-washer, first year home warranty for free costing another 4K 🙂

Being first time home buyers, we had lots of questions about the market, property and the deal we’re getting. This was definitely the best deal negotiation by all means as we saved almost 15K and our property was valued 100K more than the listing price, which got us 100K equity immediately.

He was on top of every activity to make sure that our home buying experience was very smooth. It was overall an amazing experience to have worked with Amar and his team who provided guidance throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Amar to my friends and anyone looking to buy a Home.

Prakash & Sheenam.

SNEHA VEDULA | Co-Founder @ Tulip Kids Inc. November 11, 2016, Sneha was a client of Amar -- Nov 2016

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.

SINDHU TATIMATLA | Analytics Leader October 17, 2016, Sindhu was a client of Amar -- Oct 2016

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!.

HEMALATHA MARIMUTHU | Senior Staff Software Engineer October 6, 2016, Hemalatha was a client of Amar -- Oct 2016

Amar and his team made our dream of buying house into real. Because of their hard work and team effort we could buy our dream house. Amar got the BEST DEAL in the market. He PERSONALLY involved in ALL areas (Loan, Escrow, and closing). He helped us to select our perfect house for our family needs.

We just showed Amar the house we liked and rest of the thinks his team took care .His team stayed on TOP of EVERY activity in the entire process to make sure end goal is accomplished as smooth as possible. The whole process of buying house happened in few weeks peacefully, now we enjoy our stay in our new house.

We really want to thank Amar and his team for making our dream house into real.

Regards

Dharmalingam and family.

RAJAN PATIL | SSD Firmware Development Engineer October 1, 2016, Rajan was a client of Amar -- Oct 2016

Our HOME Buying experience with Amar and Sri was great! This is our FIRST HOME and needless to say, market in the Bay area is very competitive. With Amar and team, we were confident that we would make the right purchase which would serve our starter HOME needs and also be a good investment in long run.

As the Single Family Houses that we were looking for within our budget were small older houses, having Amar and Sri’s vote of confidence and experience really helped us make the right choice. Sri was very helpful in giving her opinion and insight on many houses that we saw which eventually got us a HOME in the neighborhood we wanted.

We think Amar contacts and relationships with listing agents also helps the Home Buying and offer process. Sri was very prompt in answering our phone calls during both the offers that we made and keeping us in the loop; we think that was great!. In a fast moving market like Bay area, where time is of essence, the long hours that Amar and team put in to ensures that we can close the deal on time.

We would also like to thank you that our contract had few items to be paid by sellers (home warranty, some other fees etc). We were also impressed by Sri and Amar knowledge of Milpitas neighborhoods.
We appreciate all the help and would highly recommend you to our friends.

– Rajan and Anipra.

PARIKSHIT NIGAM | GPU DV Engineer at Qualcomm September 8, 2016, Parikshit was a client of Amar -- Sep 2016

One of my friend referred Amar & Sri to us and I’m so thankful for that. They helped us in getting our new home and we were so fortunate that they were there to guide and help us on every steps.

They helped me in taking the right decisions in each and every step of the home buying process. We got our dream house with Amar’s & Sri’s help. It is great house and our family loves it.

This was all possible because of Amar’s and Sri’s hardwork. We got the best deal by all possible means. We paid less than the seller’s asking price. They saved us almost $15K through price negotiation and recovery from seller towards closing.

They made sure that the property was good and would become an asset to family. They were involved in all the areas right from preapproval, looking at the houses, arranging for disclosures, making an offer, escrow and closing.

Because of their personal contacts with lending agents, we even got the best rate for mortgage. He made sure that for 1st time home buyers the process is simple and hassle free.

Amar’s and Sri’s time management, planning and making the right decision at right time is highly commendable. His knowledge/analysis to find pros and cons for any given house and providing true insight about the house makes them a unique Realtor®.

Their perfect execution made sure that we got the house we wanted at our price. After the offer was accepted he stayed on top of things to make sure that we didn’t have issues till closing. It was their diligence, smart strategy, flawless execution & commitment that got us the house. We thank you for your hard work.

I would highly recommend Sri & Amar for anyone buying/selling home.

SAMPATH RAMASAMY | Camera Software at Apple August 25, 2016, Sampath was a client of Amar -- Aug 2016

Amar and team are really helpful in our home buying process right from the initial consultation to the final closing. We saw the house in market and liked it. We contacted Amar & team; they were very helpful in explaining the process and also explain about the market conditions.

They placed our offer and aggressively on top of the status. They worked overnight (we got a call at 12:00midnight!) and made the offer that the seller cannot decline. That is the one aggressive strategy. Also they used some innovative techniques to make the buyer side look genuine and interested. We got our offer accepted. It is 20K less than the highest offer. I believe it is all because of Amar’s strategy.

Amar also provided wonderful support once the offer is accepted. He answered our questions and helped us all the way till closing.

Also, Amar and team helped us to find the mortgage banker that can process our loan faster since we are about to leave to India on vacation. By some magic, the mortgage banker approved the loan in shortest time and we signed the docs just a day before we leave. Amar also talked to the banker on our behalf .

Home buying process was really a stressful experience since we are first time buyers. Amor and team were really helpful in reducing our stress during this process and our thanks to them.

SHWETA DESHPANDE | Software Engineer at Calculi Inc. August 24, 2016, Shweta was a client of Amar -- Aug 2016

We are so thrilled with our new home in San Jose! Thank you so much to both Sri and Amar for all that you did to help us through this process!

Bay area is a tough market for home buyers, especially so for first time home buyers. We needed a Realtor® who could help us navigate the waters without getting overwhelmed and deal with multiple fronts of price and location, negotiations, state of the house and disclosures, fitting our family’s needs and desires, handling multiple offers in a very competitive environment, that too in a very short closing time.

To get the home we want, there are lot of pieces of the puzzle that need to fit together. Effort, luck, persistence and most of all professional skills to make good on opportunities. Amar and Sri have been many pieces of that puzzle! Throughout our long search for our home, they have been patiently answering all our questions, doubts, helping us understand different aspects of home buying, helping us learn what to look for beyond our home checklist that we started with, thinking about real issues of long term ownership, weighing pros and cons.

Their experience has been very valuable for the critical time of placing an offer, particularly for setting up a strategy. We had to deal with multiple offers situation, on a non­typical offer deadline schedule, and they helped us put a pre­emptive offer and still hit the price range without getting over­extended, which is a common risk for such pre­emptive offer situation.

Sri and Amar’s team has been very professional in the execution. Despite many moving pieces and uncertainties involved, every step was done on time, every small detail was followed up. They have been particularly good at evaluating disclosures, combing with a fine brush, seeking any problems and risks. Their biggest strength we saw in them was negotiating the best deal, attempting multiple approaches, persisting beyond reasonable efforts to make the deal happen. Once the offer was accepted, they were still involved in all the finer details, keeping close tabs on the escrow closure, collaborating with multiple people, the seller’s agent, title company, home warranty and insurance, keeping the end­goal in sight.

At the end of the day, it’s not the ‘cozy worry free home buying experience’, but the real learning experience that we very much appreciate! Thanks again for all the help and assistance, suggestions and guidance. We won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone! To get the home you want in this bay area market, Amar and Sri are the Realtors® you would want on your side!

We wish Sri and Amar continued success, good health, and happiness!

RADHAKRISHNA N | BI Business Analyst & Architect at Cisco August 23, 2016, Radhakrishna was a client of Amar -- Aug 2016

It was a great pleasure working with Amar, Sri and his team, I can’t say enough of how great experience it was! Amar was extremely professional, Buying a single family house in the bay area in a rising economy is not easy.

There is ALL CASH offer at $K and willing to go much HIGHER and 10 days CLOSING. But Our offer is 10K less and loan offer with 10% down. It’s one of the most COMPLEX and CHALLENGED offer for Amar. We lost all our hopes on this home, we don’t know how Amar work with them, it’s very complex situation, how he convinced them. After 3 to 4 days later, he gave us a congratulation email “your offer got accepted”. Still we cannot believe he work out this Home. It’s miracle. Because of Amar we got this home In Bay area. Buying a home in Bay area is our whole family dream. Because of Amar it got fulfilled. Thanks is a SMALL WORD. He spend lot of time on our transaction. we never forget this help. Really Appreciated your time and help.

We really appreciate your help in going extra mile in saving me big $$$$$ in closing costs by negotiating with the lender and the seller agent. His tie-ups and constant checking with mortgage lender helped us keep the loan processing on track with a closing in 30 days!

He was honest to me as to what was going on. Kept me updated on what was happening from beginning to the end of closing. Amar went above and beyond to help us find the right house. We HIGHLY recommend Amar to any buyer/seller. This sale of the property feels like a miracle for our family.

LOKESH BALCHA | Software Development Engineer at Yahoo August 22, 2016, Lokesh was a client of Amar -- Aug 2016

First and the foremost, I would like thank Amar from the bottom of my heart for helping us with our Home buying experience. My wife and I moved to the Bay area in California a few years ago. Since then, we have been renting apartments at different places. Quite recently, we realised it would be nice to have a spacious home of our own, that way we can start creating memories. We started to explore for the perfect Realtor® who will suit our requirements. Through my wife’s family, we got introduced to Amar.

The first time we met Amar, He outlined the House buying process and understood our requirements well. Amar make our dream come true in less than a week. The very next day following the day we met him, we started receiving emails from Sri (Amar’s wife) and Amar regarding the listings in the neighbourhood we had requested for. My wife and I short listed and with the help of Sri, we checked the first home of our interest. Meanwhile, Amar and Sri suggested we get the pre-approval for our loan from the Bank. We did accordingly. With the pre-approval we were all set to look for our perfect home. As this was our very first home visit, we had yen number of questions. Sri and Amar patiently answered all our queries and cleared our doubts.

Amar and Sri gave us lot of valuable suggestions and advised us to proceed with this property and put an offer on the house. Further, Amar also suggested we place an offer for 10k lesser than the listed price. We did accordingly and that was the night of Thursday. Kudos to Amar and Sri’s excellent negotiation skills! They were able to impeccably sense the pulse of the seller and we got our offer accepted on the morning of Saturday with no counter offer. It was a joyous moment for all of us and we couldn’t thank Amar enough. We proceeded with the inspection on the house and it took about a couple of days for that to get done.

Amar promptly sent us the inspection reports and set up a conference call with us to explain us each line mentioned in the report with great detail. I don’t know if other Realtors® take so much trouble and go to this extent of sitting down with you and baby you with so much care. Once we discussed the report and the expenses that followed, we came to understand that there were some immediate expenses that needed to be taken care of it. My wife and I were in dilemma if we had enough funds to bear the immediate expenses on the house. He calmly listened to our concerns and believe it or not, the next day we heard the news from Sri that Amar had negotiated with the seller and made them agree to pay for the initial expenses on the house. My wife and I were speechless on hearing this news.

Amar never ceases to amaze us! We thanked him profusely for his absolutely selfless and dedicated effort. We are the proud home owners. Thanks to Amar and his team for walking us through our home buying experience in California and making our dreams come true.

SOUM CHAKRABORTY | Product Manager at Rockwell Automation August 5, 2016, Soum was a client of Amar -- Aug 2016

Amar and Sri not only work as a team but also associate themselves with a team of highly experienced professionals from every facet of the real estate business providing a completely seamless home buying experience. This gets reflected in their execution resulting in super-fast closing and and zero last-moment surprises / hitches – something both the buyer (us) and the seller acknowledges as the topmost priority. For that, kudos to Amar and his team.

Our first time home buying experience could have been nerve-racking and confusing if it was not for Sri. Her responsiveness and accessibility at every phase of the process was remarkable. She was there to guide us throughout the whole process and always reminded us of the most important items in the checklist and their timelines. She always responded to my phone calls in a timely manner and had the answers I needed. As a buyer, that was invaluable to me.

Both Amar & Sri are knowledgeable & are ready to share their information readily. Starting from narrowing down the location to possible minor and major home renovation ideas – always eager to put their knowledge on the table and let us make the decision-making. They realized our predicament as first-time home buyers and were proactive but also very patient. Amar was on-top of each bid we put and Sri always went over the final offer and contract with me every time. That made me feel comfortable during the whole process and helped me concentrate on the big picture.

I truly believe that the services provided by the buyer and seller agents in today’s world of hectic schedules, complex laws and competitive real estate markets are of tremendous value and importance. Amar and Sri deserves all the accolades for that and more. I highly recommend them for their competence, professionalism, responsiveness and closing skills. For a job well done, full marks to Amar & Sri.

SUMITH NARAYANAN | Software Engineer August 1, 2016, Sumith was a client of Amar -- Aug 2016

It was wonderful meeting Amar and Sri and discuss our need for a home on a Friday, the very next day we were heading to few open houses in one of the locations that we desired. Remember, it was the first open house that we visited and we had no clue about the processes, even though we were browsing quietly over few listings in Zillow and Redfin.

We liked one of the houses and called up Sri to discuss on how to express our interest to the sellers. Two days later we again visited the same house, this time with Amar and Sri and went through the details of the house once more. We made sure that it will be good for us a family and then the very next day put up an offer.

Amar and Sri called us late in the night to break the good news. So, to pre-approval to offer acceptance, it was just over 2 weeks altogether. We did not have to run around a submit offers and then get dejected multiple times, as is the case in bay area where there are always multiple offers for good homes.

Amar Relator has a team of finance, insurance and warranty guys who took us through all the process and we got benefitted because of the team work. If you really want to stress free home buying experience in bay area, Amar is the go to person. Also Amar negotiates rates for you at every process, let it be the bidding Or the closing charges Or better financing. I feel Amar can get you what you want, for the best price, really top-notch !!

Thank you Amar and Sri.

Renuka and Sumith.

PRASHANTHI RAVANAVARAPU | Merging the lines between profits July 31, 2016, Prashanthi was a client of Amar -- Jul 2016

Amar and Sri were amazing partners in our home buying search. When we first spoke to them, they took the time to understand our priorities. When we expressed interest in a home that wasn’t available they helped us find alternatives. However, when the same home came back into the market, their approach really stood out. They were aggressive in helping us arrive at a decision and getting us the home that would work best for us financially as well as for our life.

Throughout their partnership, they have been supportive with different kinds of questions we had and helped us with several aspects of thinking through how to make the new house a home for our young family.

We have been in the market for 3 years and had lost a few bids but Amar and Sri’s approach has helped us close on the very first offer through them within month of first contact. The results speak for it. They ensured we got the best price and well below listing price.

Lastly, our home closing was complicated due to issues beyond our controls. Amar managed the situation very well and helped us close despite all complications. Overall it was a great experience and would recommend Amar and Sri to any of our friends and family.

CHANDRA SEKHAR DURISETY, PH.D | Vice President Manufacturing & Operations July 30, 2016, Chandra Sekhar was a client of Amar -- Jul 2016

Dear Amar and Sri,

It has been a fantastic experience from the day we met you. I would say the key learning during my home buying experience was trust: Trust in your knowledge, providing proper guidance and keeping the promise. At the end, we are just ecstatic with the results. We have been quite skeptical from our past experiences over 8 months with other Realtors®.

Once we understood Amar’s capabilities, and the support from the financial institution, we had tremendous confidence that we will be making our HOME run. We are the proof that we did reach our goal in our 2nd offer within a month. The fact that there was no counter offer, clearly shows the strategy planning and deal negotiation capabilities with Seller’s agent, combined with balancing the expectations of the buyer (my wife and I).

The biggest surprise was the appraisal. In current time (mid-2016), the bids are usually substantially higher. I was pleasantly surprised to know that my appraisal was considerably higher than my bid, which shows the diligent hard-work and excellent deal negotiation capabilities from Amar and his team.

I understand the true challenge lies after winning the bid, which is co-ordinating all the players (Loan officer, home warranty, insurance, Escrow officer and buyer of course) and bringing them to sync, for a timely and smooth closure. There are a slew of unknown parameters that could go against the smooth flow, but thinking through the process, proper planning could help make this journey as pleasant as it can be for everyone.

I would say it has been an awesome experience from start to finish. For everyone, please note that this is an extremely team effort.

NARENDRA JANGA | Sr Staff Engineer/Mgr at Qualcomm July 21, 2016, Narendra was a client of Amar -- Jul 2016

My family and I would like to thank Mr. Amarnath for being such a wonderful Realtor®. He managed to do something many of the other Realtors® could not, he helped us find our dream home. When we first began looking for houses, we were having a very hard time since the housing market was so busy. Most of the Realtors® just seemed to be interested in selling houses as fast as they could manage but Mr. Amarnath took his time to help us find a house with everything we hoped for. With two daughters, one going to the sixth grade and the other going to the ninth grade, we had to pay attention to the schools as well as the home itself. In the end he saved us up to 6k on closing costs and 10K less than the authorized offer price.

Being the first time buyers with lot of things to understand he never let us feel as first time home buyers. Once we liked the house he worked at mercurial speed to make sure we got the house, at same time he made sure that nothing was overlooked. We are really impressed by his knowledge of sellers mindset. we are also really impressed the way he treated us like one of his family members and the in the whole process he acted as though he is buying the house for his own family members.

JAGADEESH VAKA | SAP BI Lead at Hewlett-Packard July 17, 2016, Jagadeesh was a client of Amar -- Jul 2016

Hi Sri & Amar,

I want to thank you for being my Realtor® and made my first time home buying process as smooth as possible. It was really pleasure working with you, Sri and your amazing team.

In this competitive bidding war, I still can’t believe that getting offer accepted for the first home we worked together, that too around the list price. It was an amazing and incredible speed and ease with which we were taken through the process. I still remember that it just took 12 hours from the time Sri showed us the house till we write an offer which includes getting pre-qualification letter.

I strongly believe that your aggressive negotiation skills, thorough knowledge and strategy in writing attractive offer helped us to get the house we want. I’m glad and thanks to my friend Krishna V who referred you.

Once again thank you for being one stop shop for us and providing your valuable suggestions and guidance throughout the process. I remember one of your email and phone call you mentioned “Relax… We will guide you THE ENTIRE PROCESS “. At the end I truly feel that we have experienced this and you did what you have mentioned.

Regards,
Jagadeesh

NACHIKETH GUTTI | SMB Marketing June 15, 2016, Nachiketh was a client of Amar -- Jun 2016

I wanted to take this time to personally thank Amar and his team in helping us get the house we were looking for. Sri took the time to get away from her activities to show us the houses we wanted to see at the time that was convenient for us. Amar and team had all the knowledge required to keep us in check while going through the buying experience.

They made sure that all the properties we shortlisted were in the right neighbourhood with good schools and away from major freeways. They took care of compiling the offer with all the clauses, explaining each and every step. Amar went above and beyond expectation by negotiating with the seller agent over phone at 11pm to make sure we get a good deal. Bottom line Amar and Team helped us from start to finish from Loan Pre-Approval to closing the loan and helped save over 10K on our house.

I was referred to Amar by a few of my friends who brought their house through him. They all had a pleasant experience and so did I and my family. I definitely recommend Amar and his team for your home buying needs.

GANESH BHAT | Technical Program Manager May 31, 2016, Ganesh was a client of Amar -- May 2016

We started working with Amar & Sri from March this year, when we started searching for a place to call HOME. Amar patiently listened to all our needs and answered questions we had in mind. He guided us through all process and has gone above and beyond his call-of-duty duty to accomplish my Home Ownership dream a Realty. Most of the questions I have asked were responded with–in hours by Amar and his team throughout the process.

Once we identified the house we liked it, Amar perfectly EXECUTED. Amar worked round the clock to come up with a very clean and enticing offer strategy which resulted in us winning the bid at lesser than listing price in a multiple bid scenario. Amar brilliantly structured the contract in a way that seller pays 5K towards the closing.

Amar also personally involved in each and every step of the process from loan to escrow closing and was providing valuable tips throughout the process. He provided me with the status every week on the progress we are making towards escrow closing. We were able to close escrow ahead of time with him being on top of every activity in the entire process to make sure end goal is accomplished as smooth as possible.

Amar had a great TEAM in place to help us with documentation, loan, insurance, security. Each one of them is highly capable and thoroughly professional. I am very confident to say that Amar is THE BEST AGENT we could have got for our home search and I am big fan of his end-to-end Execution peacefully.

I would gladly refer you to my friends and family and thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for helping us get our first home.

Thank you,

Amar did an excellent job in finding our first home. As first time home buyers we were scared and confused. We were dilly dallying for more than 6 months trying to decide if we should buy or not, the location and budget. We called Amar on a Sunday. He was kind enough to come home on the same day. After understanding our situation and talking to us for more than an hour, he was able to easy our anxiety. Talking to him helped us feel confident about buying a house.

I have made 100% return on my investment within 8 months. He has a really good knowledge on where to invest. His negotiation skills are legendary. He was able to get us $18k off on upgrades and site location. Overall we are very happy that we found him as our Realtor®. I would love to recommend him to any home buyer out there.

SRIKANTH GURRAM | Senior Member of Technical Staff April 28, 2016, Srikanth was a client of Amar -- Apr 2016

First of all thanks a ton for helping me to get my desired house. I really liked that way you execute things, professional per-say.
I remember when we first spoke over the phone giving me the tips and tools to find a desired house. I was totally inclined that you are one who can get me the desired house. The very good thing that I liked about you is you help people without expecting anything from them. This is pure and unconditional service.

I wanted to write a story about my home buying experience. Trust me, for me it was a dream-come-true. All my friends and relatives were shocked as within 1 month of my house hunt I got a dream house which I wanted. This happened only because of your Midas-touch.

I have seen Realtors® placing an offer for the house knowing that there will not get it; this is like shooting arrows in thin air. You were not like that, the way I have seen. It was a perfect project executing giving you 110% hard work. I still remember your email early morning at 5:30 AM enquiring about the hazard insurance, flood coverage and suggesting me the option available. For me this is what is called as pure unconditional service.

The way I see, I think for me you are a magician with lots of confidence and you bring all the team together and execute a plan with sure shot accuracy. I have not seen any Realtor® working with the loan officer while placing an offer.

Finally I recommend your name to all my friends and family members for your excellent work.

SHIVNATH BABU | Co-founder/CTO at Unravel Data Systems April 17, 2016, Shivnath was a client of Amar -- Apr 2016

Amar and his team were simply terrific during the entire home buying process. Starting from our very first meeting with Amar, it was clear to us that Amar would help us like a trusted friend while being extremely professional in dealing with the complex process of buying a house in the crazy Bay Area market.

We made a bid on a house together. Well, Amar has the midas touch, and we are now proud owners of this home! This house was hotly contested for. It received no less than 22 offers. I have every reason to believe that, despite ours not being the highest bid, Amar and his team’s attention to detail swung the deal in our favour. Amar’s involvement did not stop there. Amar and his team (thanks, Sri, Stacey, and Narayan!) helped us all the way through the loan process and many other things until we had the keys in hand. I cannot emphasize this enough.

Having been through the same process in the past, I can say that Amar has put together an amazing team and also established a professional network that is unparalleled. I later found out that Amar is ranked among the top 3 agents in the nation at Keller Williams Realty. Having known him professionally for over two months now, I can see why.

I have had many discussions with Amar and honestly feel that Amar’s knowledge of the Bay Area market has few equals. It is hard to find someone who is more passionate about his work. If Amar agrees to help you with the home buying process, then you will have a smooth ride for sure.

PETER HOWARD | CEO at Realtime Robotics, Inc April 15, 2016, Peter was a client of Amar -- Apr 2016

Our experience with Amar and his wife, and their colleagues and teammates was stellar. From the first contact, Amar was there for us, and even more importantly, significantly improved the deal we got on the home, on the mortgage, on the insurance, and on the ancillary services following closing.

Some people are born with a sense for negotiation, and Amar is one of them. With his close counseling, we were able to get the home we wanted for $50k less than we were willing to pay, and even more below the bank appraisal range. In addition, he negotiated closing terms that saved us and additional $8k or so in closing costs, and even got the seller to pay for major appliance insurance on top of that..

Amar has formed relationships with key contributors to the home buying process. He is willing and able to make recommendations when you ask for them, but is not pushy about the recommendations he makes.

Our experience with his recommendation for mortgage lender was eye-poppingly amazing, saving us weeks in the closing process, and a full 3/8th percent better than any other offer on the 30 year rate, at one of the nation’s largest banking institutions. Plus, they subsidized closing costs!

His recommendation for insurance agent, representing one of the nation’s largest insurance companies, saved us significant cost on the home policy, but also about $800/year on our auto policies. And she has been a pleasure to deal with.

I have had the pleasure to work with truly excellent real estate agents on 15 different purchase and sale experiences, but Amar is the most effective of all, by a significant margin.

Depending upon your cultural background, Amar may come across as a bit “salesy”, but don’t be put off: he is the real deal. Work with him. You will not regret it.

KARTHIKEYAN SUBRAMANIAN | Programmer analyst April 6, 2016, Karthikeyan was a client of Amar -- Apr 2016

Being first time home buyers with very little clue about the
dynamics of the market and the various steps involved, it was imperative that we work with a knowledgeable real estate professional who could provide an honest and objective view of the market and also guide us in a professional manner through the various stages.We found all this and much more with Amar and his team. Right from day one, he took time to understand what we were looking for and listened patiently to everything we had to say.

Once we found a property that we liked, Amar and his
team went into overdrive and put together a comprehensive offer within our specified budget. Since it was a very competitive bid with 30+ offers and we were nowhere near the higher offer prices, we normally would have been hesitant to even make the offer. But Amar’s strategy was spelt out so clearly to us that we trusted him completely and his words proved right when our offer was indeed accepted over multiple higher ones.
This happened because of Amar’s proactive interaction with sellers as
well as involvement of the rest of Amar’s extended team including the lenders. Both Amar and Sri always communicated with us about any updates and kept us in the loop throughout

Not only did Amar recover a significant amount from the seller towards closing but he also proactively negotiated a huge price drop post contract! This was without us even asking him to try it.That was the icing on the cake.

At the end of the day what worked for us was Amar and Sri’s relentless drive and energy as they moved the process along with minimal stress to us. If it weren’t for that my family would not be relaxing in our new home today.

I’d recommend Amar, Sri and team in a jiffy. Nobody knows the bay area market as well as them. Thank you team!

KETAN KOTAK | Conceiving and Realizing a vision for Software Solutions! April 1, 2016, Ketan was a client of Amar -- Apr 2016

Amar, Thanks for your professionalism. Here is summary of our buying experience.

* Amar is very thorough in all aspects of home buying – making offer, to involving lender, insurance agents, provides contact for utility services and even for us reference to Pujaris for Housewarming Pujan.

* Amar’s lenders work very professionally and extremely collaboratively to make the close of escrow so quick beating market norms. This gives upper edge to buyer’s offer.

* Amar prepared offer for our home on very late Sunday night after we came back from visiting an open house.

* Amar has written unique offer terms with right strategy to WIN our offer at very attractive price before other offer IN.

* Amar adopted negotiation technique that suites our buying situation. His acumen in adapting negotiation skills are commendable.

TUSHAR MAHALE | Staff Engineer at ThoughtSpot March 30, 2016, Tushar was a client of Amar -- Mar 2016

Let me start by saying this – there cannot be a better Realtor® than Amar. Period.

When we decided to buy our first home, we started looking for a Realtor® who could guide us in the right direction and help us make our dream a reality. Amar had very good and a lot of positive reviews, so we decided to contact him. And that sure was the best decision we took.

Sri is a gem of a person. She was very proactive and always informed us about any good listings whenever they came up. She’d always try to understand our changing requirements focusing even on finer details, to ensure that she’s able to find the perfect fit for us. We could ask any question to her and she’d always answer all our questions patiently and in detail, no matter how small/silly they seem. Being a first time home buyer, this helped us a lot in narrowing down our exact requirements and take into accounts aspects that we had never thought of. I think this is very critical especially for a first time home buyer.

One of the best qualities of Amar and Sri is they are not pushy. I still remember the discussion I had when I informed them that we wanted to back out of a contract. They were amazingly supportive and never ever tried to convince us to continue with the contract or to reconsider our decision. That is I think one of the most important quality every Realtor® should have and I am very glad I was working with people who are masters at such things. They patiently understood our concerns. The call was over in a few minutes and we were out of contract smoothly. Even after losing the deal and the time they had spent on the contract, there was not a single ounce of drop in the enthusiasm Amar and Sri showed showing/suggesting next properties. That is how professional they are.

And then there was the home that we had been waiting for all these months. We hadn’t even bothered to go to the open house because it was way above our budget. But one fine evening we got a call from Sri and informed that Amar wanted us to have a look at the house. We got ready in half an hour and were on our way to the house. When we first saw the house, we couldn’t believe we could afford it and were even thinking that this could be a waste of time. But Amar suggested us to make an offer and we decided to give it a try. And it was not in vain. Out of his amazing arsenal of Realtor® skills, Amar unleashed his all mighty negotiation powers and brokered a deal that I still sometimes have to ask myself if is indeed a reality or not.

We purchased the house at 63K less than the listing price in the hot market of Milpitas with good schools. Amar and Sri were involved in every step of the process, kept all the parties involved on the same page.

Amar has teamed up with professionals who are BEST in their business and they guided us smoothly throughout the entire process which otherwise could be overwhelming for the first time buyers.

SHINE MOHAMED | Load balancing team March 25, 2016, Shine was a client of Amar -- Mar 2016

Thank you Amar & Sri!!!

I believe you did an amazing job in closing the deal in the constraints we had! We always wanted to live close to San Jose area and looking at the current market conditions, this was the perfect house. Thank you for making it happen!!

Now counting days to get shifted to our new home!!

Wish you all the best!!

VIKHYATH REDDY MARAPADAGA | Engineering February 24, 2016, Vikhyath Reddy was a client of Amar -- Feb 2016

It was a great pleasure working with Amar, Sri and his team on our first home and we would like to THANK YOU for all the work you have done. From giving you a call for the first time to getting keys in hand, 60 days flat which includes a 3 week christmas break. We picked a home that we liked after looking at different properties and you got us the keys to the house in less than 30 days (including pre-approval, negotiation ~ 31 competing offers, appraisal, closing etc.).

We knew we picked the right set of folks to work with on our first call itself. Your follow ups with the seller, their Realtor®, banks and escrow in a 31 offer scenario is outstanding. You made that happen with flawless execution with first offer. It is very likely other 31 offers were from more experienced buyers, we being in the market for the first time *without an all cash offer* and winning the contract on a $5K less than our upper bound with seller contributing towards closing costs, speaks volumes about the hard work you and your team put in.

Your network of working with banks and other related parties makes the home buying experience much more smoother than one could imagine in the hot bay area real estate market.

We look forward to working with you on many more real estate needs to come.

PAWAN SINGAL | Principal Engineer at Dell February 22, 2016, Pawan was a client of Amar -- Feb 2016

One word to describe Amar is amazing. We were a first time homebuyers and contacted Amar via one of web portal at around 8:00pm on Sunday evening. To our surprise he was at our door at 8:45pm that on Sunday evening. This moved us and we decided to go with him. We made a offer in 2nd week of relationship and surprise again, we got it, competing against 19 other offers. There were few hicups with appraisal as we got it lower than the bid value. Amar was on top of all these, for him, minor blocks and made sure the deal is done in 21 days.

Even though we closed our first home around a year back, he is always in touch and makes effort in his capacity to resolve any problem even after year of closing the deal.

Amar is easy to work with, open for discussion and suggestions. I highly recommend him for home buying help.

KHYATI KAPOOR, PH.D | Scientist II-Protein Chemistry December 8, 2015, Khyati was a client of Amar -- Dec 2015

Thanks a lot Amar and Sri for getting us our first home and that too in the Bay Area! We had been in the market for sometime and had worked with quite a few real estate agents but to no avail since we had a limited budget. It was getting frustrating when we were introduced to Amar and his team by a friend. We had given up hope that we would never be able to own a home in such cut-throat market. From the day we were introduced to Amar and his team, it just took us 10 days to get our offer accepted. It was totally unbelievable! It was our first bid in the competitive Mountain View area.

Amar and Sri aggressively negotiated it and left no stone unturned to win us this offer and within our affordability. When Sri called us to inform us that we had won the bid, we had to pinch ourselves to actually believe it. All this was possible only because it was Amar who was representing us. We are pretty sure that no other real estate agent could have won us a deal within our constraints. The tremendous effort and confidence with which Amar and Sri drafted out an offer for us and were on top of it all throughout the process from getting it accepted and further until we got the keys, is commendable. Both of them were personally involved in the entire process and that puts Amar and his team in a different league from other real-estate agents.

Amar’s excellent understanding of the real estate market and his reputation in this industry, all point to the fact that he is an experienced and a thorough professional. We would whole-heartedly recommend Amar and his team as one-stop-shop for anyone’s real-estate needs.

SASHI KONDAREDDY | Oracle Database Whisperer November 13, 2015, Sashi was a client of Amar -- Nov 2015

We were first time home buyers – and very ignorant of the home buying process and all forms of negotiation. When we ‘started’ out to buy a home, we thought it might take a few months to get the home we wanted. And then we met Amar, through a referral. We met him at a coffee house on a Saturday.

He set us up with the right people for financing and other logistics. We made an offer which was accepted the next Friday, closed in a little over 2 weeks and picked up the keys. The whole thing took less than 30 pleasant days instead of the 3-6 stressful months we thought it might take. The incredible speed and ease with which Amar and his team guided us through the process is amazing. They provided guidance throughout the entire home buying process: from finding our dream home, making and winning the offer, closing the deal, and post-close move-in guidance. He stayed on TOP of EVERY activity in the entire process to make sure our home buying process was as smooth as possible.

His knowledge of the real estate industry and a keen eye for details is outstanding which was very helpful to us in several phases of our home buying process. And he went way above and beyond what I’d normally expect from an agent. Here are highlights of his outstanding service during various phases of our home buying process:
Home Search: He took our overall preferences and requirements for a home at a short coffee shop meetup and showed our dream house in a few days. His expert knowledge of what to look for in a house was extremely confidence boosting and helped us make an informed decision.

Making/Winning an offer: This was an area where we were ignorant and he is a master. His expert knowledge and clever strategies helped us win the deal in a multiple-offer situation in spite of higher offers from others. (Since we liked the home very much, and we knew there were other offers, I was thinking we needed make an offer at least 10K higher than the asking price; Amar, instead made an offer 10K less than the asking price and leveraged other factors in our favour to win the deal).

Closing the offer: Amar was a lot more than an agent/Realtor® as we winded down towards the Close. He and his team were constantly and efficiently coordinating with the loan officers, insurance agents and the seller’s agents and was giving us daily status updates with the task in progress and the pending tasks. (And whenever we had a doubt, even during off-hours or weekends, we would shoot off an email, thinking we will get a reply the next weekday morning; Instead we always got replies soon after our requests.)

As I said earlier, he went way above and beyond what I’d normally expect from a real estate agent. In addition to getting our house at 10K less than the asking price, he saved us close to 10K in closing costs by passing on the costs to the seller/lender.

ASHEESH ASTHANA | Senior Product Manager November 4, 2015, Asheesh was a client of Amar -- Nov 2015

We were a “first-home-buyers”– not very aware of the “good value” home areas.
Home Search : Your approach was very meticulous and time efficient. You first wanted to know our choices. This was done by showing few “different” configurations one evening ( 5 different houses). This was the first very important steps to align what we wanted and what to expect within our budgets.

I was really impressed by the fact that it was not just a discussion on a phone – but actually visiting house much before the scheduled OpenHouse. Your experience about what to look in a house was also very critical – tells us how passionate you are about homes, well you understand this industry and your keen eye on details.

Within a week we liked a place and called you – from that point on-wards you were on the top of it. You has your own ways to do an independent evaluation of the home that we like.

Putting an offer : This is one area where no one can beat you – you are the best, leaving no stone un-turned. All throughout the process we got a feeling that “You are our man”. You very diligent, calculative and realistic about how to go about making an offer that would secure us the deal. Always kept us informed. Most importantly, as a first time buyers, we were very anxious – but all this time you were very confident that we will get it –You had created a complete offer.

Winning the offer: It was unbelievable to us that we won the offer. You were always confident that we will make it as we had a very nice complete offer. We were able to get the offer, despite the fact there where many better offers.. Facts speak for themselves, if we look at the amount we put in the offer and the Appraiser’s report – we have just paid One Dollar extra.

Closing the offer: Amar, you are not yet another agent – You are a leader of a fantastic Team. Your execution is flawless. You can move things fast, you can make things happen. We were on the edge , but you were the soothing figure – always confident that we will meet all the terms and conditions of the offer. Your Loan Officers, your insurance agents, your back office people – all were phenomenal. They have worked long late hour on weekday and weekdays – that tells how much dedicated this team is to work for their customers. Hats Off to this team –an example I would love to quote at my work place.

Final Move : The final move has been smooth as ever. We got access to the home 24 hours in advance. This was very helpful in our move. You are always accessible if we need any help.

Overall, I would call Amar and his team – Great understanding of the real estate market and industry. Very Intelligent Sale pitch – the seller cannot deny his offer. Awesome execution – a very professional & hardworking team.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to Amar and his team for partnering with me on a recent property acquisition initiative. When I brought this proposal to Amar, his initial response was “I am ON it “.

He truly lived up to this in terms of providing guidance at all aspects whether it is on price negotiations or dealing with lending partners and ensuring progress at all phases. The exemplary partnership he brought into this engagement , underlined by his attitude of not hesitating to go the extra mile was a key component in the successful outcome of this initiative .

AJAY VEMURU | Business strategy & Business Development October 8, 2015, Ajay was a client of Amar -- Oct 2015

Amar is an excellent Realtor®. We are first time home buyers and Amar and Elly made the process as smooth as possible. This team has immense knowledge of the real estate market and is genuinely interested in finding us a home of our expectations within our budget.

We had terrible experience with the previous Realtor® and Amar & team helped us overcome the bad experience and truly made us comfortable all through the process. Amar was available all the time through out the process and helped as much as possible to keep things moving.

I’m sure his teams’ expertise and long term experience help the customers win any deal. Amar sure goes a long way helping his clients. I definitely recommend Amar & team.

ASIF ISLAM | Software Engineer at Google September 26, 2015, Asif was a client of Amar -- Sep 2015

We’re first time home buyer, and Amar & Sri made the whole process very smooth for us. I’ve heard from my friends that they had to bid many times before wining their dream house. When we first visited the house, we were not very sure whether we’ll be able to get it as it was our first time bidding.

To our surprise, we won the bid and not only that, he made the best deal and saved us around 20K from the highest offer. With his proven strategies, negotiation skills, and high reputation, he made it possible to win the deal in less than the higher offer in multiple offers situation.

As a first time home buyer, we didn’t know a lot of the details, and were a bit nervous about buying a property in this market. He helped us making an informed decision. Amar provided guidance and collaboration throughout the entire home buying process. He was involved in all areas: appraisal, loan, escrow and closing. The whole process went very smoothly and now we’re the proud owner of a house in 3 weeks.

Amar & Sri, we’re grateful to have you as our Realtors®. Without your help, we can’t imagine buying the house in this tough market at such a great price.

RAJ BEHERA | Sr. Program Manager – HCM SuccessFactors Suite August 6, 2015, Raj was a client of Amar -- Aug 2015

Amar is one of very good Realtor® in a sense of the current competitive market in bay area. I start with the word that “I recommend Amar to all my friends, colleagues and also new comers”. Let me write few words about him as what I gained from choosing him as my Agent to buy a home.

Amar has many valued personal traits such as the “Art of Negotiations” and “Flawless Execution”. That impresses me a lot!! The unique quality of negotiations in Amar brings us high level of confidence & integrity in his ability. He is very competent!!

The strength in Amar lies in understanding your requirement in full without neglecting any minor open end questions, Secondly he offers himself throughout the life cycle of home buying exercises such as selection of the right home, selection of the right neighborhood, and selection of other personal criteria such as directions of home and geo central locations.

Amar considers as if he is buying for himself and going to stay in the home, he
is very thorough in his work and puts forward his experiences insight into the
selection procedures. He is always accessible and offers high grade of
professional services, displays a pleasant, cheerful disposition.

Amar possesses the quality of knowing what has to be done, makes practical suggestions, and effectively writes the contract, offering agreement, and openness for sharing views during the home buying process.

Amar has a great network of friends in the Bank, Sellers Agents, Market Analysts, Home improvement service contractors and other affiliated organizations.

We are very impressed with his quality service & execution and I truly trust in his words & deeds.

I encourage all to take the advantage of Amar’s expertise and be a proud Home owner…Good luck!!

SATHISH KUMAR | Lead Test Engineer at Aruba July 29, 2015, Satish was a client of Amar -- Jul 2015

This was our First Home Buying Experience. Initially, We are not sure where/How to start. We came to know about Amar through the Zillow and were looking and reading about his reviews on his website and decided go with Amar (This was our First Realtor® too).

Later, We mailed him about for enquiring about a property/pre-approval process. He responded back the next day morning and clearly explained about the home buying process. After getting our pre-approval process done, Amar came to our house for explaining/clarifying our doubts/questions/house requirements we had in mind.

In the process of searching our houses, Amar and Team had helped us on whenever needed day/night to view the property at our own convenience. Once we liked the property, Amar started the signed procedures as promptly and followed up the Seller’s Realtor® on negotiating the deals and offer. He is very good in following up with the lenders about the Buyer’s Loaning info/other information.

After signing the offer, and our offer got selected inspite of other High Bid Offers. Amars Team Followed up daily with the lender in getting the Loan Approval/status of the loan at every step on time without any delays. He was working with the Escrow Officer in getting documents signed to close the purchase agreement on time.

Overall it was very Excellent experience for us working with Amar and his Team for their Dedication on Home Buying Experience Completlng the Entire Process Smoothly with the Winning Strategy. Our Home Purchase agreement Process was done completed within a month.

Definitely We would recommend Amar’s Team for a Smooth and Dedicated Home Buying experience.

SANJEEV TANUGULA | Senior Director of Engineering at SEPHORA July 24, 2015, Sanjeev was a client of Amar -- Jul 2015

Buying a home; that quintessential American dream! That dream became a reality for us, thanks to Amar and his perseverance and hustle. As everybody knows/realizes buying a home is a difficult process; buying a home in bay area is even more of a gargantuan task. We started on our journey of finding our dream home a year ago and quickly realized that the term “dream home” is a relative term. Out of the 3 to 4 key drivers that guide your selection process i.e. cost, location, schools and size/type, you do have to compromise on one or more elements to find your home.

When we first met Amar garu, being first time home buyers in US, we were all over the place. He helped us wade through those waters and arrive at a combination that led us to shortlist a few good homes.

Once we shortlisted the homes we would like to pursue, what followed was purely his magic or as we say in sport talk, “Hustle” to make it happen. He would simply ask us if we are 100% into placing an offer for a home and if we are in, he would move heaven and earth to make it happen. I don’t know how many couples in bay area can claim this, but our success rate is 100% i.e. we made only offer and got that home. Once we saw the home we loved it. However it was listed at a price beyond my pre-approval limit.

Once Amar garu realized that this home checked all our requirements – great location, single family with a nice backyard and decent schools he went about setting us up with different financing options to get me past the pre-approval hurdle. In this hot bay area housing market, he managed to get us the home for almost $100k less than a competing buyer. Throughout the process, Amar was not just our real estate agent but also an advisor, friend and a guide, who had our best interests at heart.

Thanks to his fantastic relationship management skills, the post-offer-acceptance phase was smooth and issue-free.
In Amar, we not only found a great real estate agent, but a good friend and advisor, who works tirelessly to find you the right property, a place that you will call HOME. Thanks Amar garu!!

In summary:

“For a first time home buyer like us, Amar garu was god sent. His great knowledge of the market, combined with his persistence and hard work to find the right fit for you, can be a great help in that exciting roller coaster ride. Most important thing that stands out with Amar garu is if you like a home and ask him to make it happen, he will go work on it tirelessly and doesn’t rest until it is done. Even when faced with obstacles in the loan process he will go find alternatives and line them up quickly so that you do not lose the house that you want to call “HOME”.

LALEETA GOLLAMUDI | Bio Process Engineer, Becton Dickinson July 7, 2015, Laleeta was a client of Amar -- Jul 2015

“Just like any couple, home buying process seems like a nightmare in Silicon Valley. Our journey to look for a house started with many apprehensions and qualms. We got introduced to Mr. Amar Amarnath at one of the events in Silicon Andhra.

His utmost humility caught our attention and encouraged us to work with him. Within a duration of 3 months he streamlined several issues required for home buying process, enabling us to move progressively. Despite having the challenges of multiple bids, over bids and time pressure, he went out of the way to help us buy our dream house. He personalized this experience by interacting with residents in the neighborhood to get inputs and involving every member of the family to ensure our happiness. Finally, we landed in our dream home, cherishing every moment with our family.

Our special thanks and gratitude to Mr. Amar and his entire team for making this beautiful dream come true. We would recommend Mr. Amar for his diligence, sincerity and excellent customer service……..making home buying a pleasurable experience.”

Thirumala Reddy Mutchukota | Software Engineer at Google June 29, 2015, Thirumala Reddy was Amar’s client -- Jun 2015

I feel very lucky to got to know Amar. When I first contacted him on April 18th 2015, I had no clue about buying a house in US and had no confidence that I can buy a house in the next six months. From there, in exactly two months, i.e by June 19th 2015, the Escrow got closed and now I am a proud owner of a beautiful house in this far far foreign land. I still can’t believe that all these happened so fast and I was really able to buy a house in exactly two months. Amar played a big role in it and I will always be thankful for him for that.

Here are brief list of items that made all the difference in our home buying experience …

· With the very first phone call, Amar introduced me to the loan officer Yogesh. The conversation with Yogesh cleared lot of doubts about my affordability, loan eligibility, and gave me the much needed clarity on what I am entering into.

· When I informed Amar that, I liked a house on May 18th morning, I had no confidence that I will be able get it as the house is little over my budget and there are already higher bids with the seller. But, Amar gave me the confidence to go for it, gathered everything together, prepared the offer the same day, submitted it the same night and even got it accepted the very next day. So, approximately, in just over 24 hours, I went from, “I like this house, but I am not sure that I would be able to get it” to “Yes, I got it” and that’s marvelous and unheard of before.

· Amar execution speed and negotiation skills are extremely good and I believe those are the ones that makes him one of the most successful and well appreciated Realtor®.

· Amar was able to win the bid even with 10k less than the highest bid. A very big thanks for him for seeing it through and convincing me to take the right step at the right time.

· As soon as our offer is accepted, he introduced us to his whole team of people who came forward to help us in closing the deal on time.

· Throughout the Escrow time, he was on top of everything and sending me regular updates and assurances that everything is going as per the plan and we closed the deal on on June 19th 2015.

· Even after closing the escrow, he is still calling me regularly and giving all the guidance with taking over the house and moving in. In that I just see a very great friend and well-wisher in him.

In Summery, Thanks to Amar for everything and God bless him with lot of health, wealth and lot more energy to help lot of other people like me in fulfilling their dreams.

Its been a really good experience to work with Amar and his team as our agent because he kept us in the loop throughout the process and was personally involved in all aspects of home selling including appraisal, loan, escrow process, and closing.

The final buyer having used a VA loan, Amar ensured that all things were taken care of right and being there personally for the appraisal process. Not just that but Amar also coordinated and engaged us throughout the entire escrow process to make sure the loan process went smooth. Thanks once again for a great experience and we look forward to working with Amar and his team as our buying agent as well.

Jasmina Simic | Supervisor at Il Fornaio June 18, 2015, Jasmina was Amar’s client -- Jun 2015

What a pleasure was to work with Amar and his team!
Amar is a superb agent, providing us with excellent service .He is very responsive, timely, and professional.
Quick and efficient, Amar was involved in every stage of this journey.
We were looking in a very competitive area and the house had a lot of interest, so we weren’t sure whether we would be able to get it.
He helped us close the deal among many potential interests.
He got us a great price, a good discount from the lender, and brought us, incredibly smooth, to close of escrow in just 2 weeks.
I want to thank the team for all their hard work in helping to locate the perfect house in Los Gatos. With all your help we were able to find the perfect property for us.

Yogendra Srungaram | Product Manager Technology and Software June 1, 2015, Yogendra was Amar’s client -- Jun 2015

Amar ji helped us find our dream home which met our exact requirements.Our requirements are pretty tough

I know Amar ji for a while. I know him personally. He is a good friend. But when it comes to business he is extremely focused, professional and dedicated.He left no stone un-turned to get us the winning deal. Along with his deep technical knowledge about the housing market, the biggest asset he brings to the table are his unconventional skills.

He understands our requirements and also the seller’s requirements and bridges those gaps between both the parties. Winning and closing houses are a norm for him.Wishing him the best in helping lots of home buyers like us buy their dream homes, Thanks you once again and all the best

Srinivasa Yedluri | Staff Middleware Engineer May 28, 2015, Srinivasa was Amar’s client -- May 2015

When I think about Amar and experience with him as buyer, this is what struck my mind

— Great adviser for home buyers.
— Great price negotiator.
— Highly focused.
— Personal involvement in every step in the process.
— Highly skilled in real-estate transactions.

Being a first time home buyer, I was off at times on my preferences and priorities. Amar was really helpful in explaining the reality and guiding me in the right direction and also suggesting me great mortgage lender.

My transaction was not an easy one, as I have budget constraints and got into market with short preparation, however I have ambition to get good house in good school district.

End of the day, Amar and his team have helped me fulfilling my ambition working patiently on all the difficulties in the way and saving me around 20K, in this steep market; without Amar and his team it wouldn’t have happened.

I really appreciate the help and recommend Amar for any committed Home buyer.

Prapti Chitoor | Software Engineer at Apple May 23, 2015, Prapti was Amar’s client -- May 2015

This is probably going to be similar to some of the other reviews. However we cannot help saying Amar is really really the best. He has an excellent relationship with the Bank and sellers agents. Because of Amar we got:
— An excellent rate.
— We found our home, in an area we wanted
— We were not even the highest bidder, but Amar and his team’s reputation to get things done on time, and his negotiation skills got us our home.

— We needed the proceeds from our previous home in a different location, to invest into our current home and the funds were on the same day as the closing date. Amar got the bank to approve and fund our loan for the house in Bay Area in a matter of hours.

— He is involved in every aspect and makes it a really smooth process.
In the South Bay Area where there are multiple bids, and over the top cash offers the relationships and reputation of the agent makes a difference in whether you get your home. You cannot go wrong with Amar!

Sudhakara Reddy | BI Architect May 23, 2015, Sudhakara was Amar’s client -- May 2015

It is really a pleasure indeed to write a review for Amar. In simple words, he will see the entire process of buying home an easy and Pleasant one. The unique thing about Amar is his vast experience in negotiating with the Bank people or with the sellers. Amar’s negotiations skills helped me to get a very great price (50K less than the higher offer) in this hot and multiple offers market, that too in South Bay. Over and above this, he got us a good discount from the lender towards closing cost.

Amar was there to oversee see personally all aspects of the buying a Home whether it is Loan, Escrow or closing. Amar is simply an outstanding agent with a professional, efficient and, caring team. Moreover an excellent person to work with. He patiently answered all my many questions and continuously ensured that we had all the information we needed.

I would strongly recommend Amar to anyone looking for an edge in a competitive housing market.

Sridhar Narasimham | Engineering Manager at Maximum Integrated May 20, 2015, Sridhar was Amar’s client -- May 2015

I contacted Amar based on the positive reviews that I read online. In a competitive seller¹s market, it is very important to have an efficient Realtor® who can represent you well & can get the job done.

Amar & team got on the job right away. He has a great team and I got pre-approved at lightning speed. Amar & Sri worked with us and counseled us on our house requirements, the factors to consider and the locations we should consider. With that help we identified our target homes that we wanted to place an offer on.

Amar put together a very good offer package and we got accepted, though we
were not the highest offer. Our first offer was accepted at $20K less than the highest offer. We witnessed entire Amar offer presentation with seller and listing agent. We didn¹t even get a chance to make an 2nd offer out to our second target.

Amar was able to negotiate many small components of the house closing that
added up to a BIG SUM over $7K. His team was also excellent and the financing portion etc. closed in a record time. His support team is robust to survive any hiccups during the entire process.

What continues to impress me about Amar is that he stayed engaged in the whole Home buying process and closed the HOME for us in a RECORD TIME. I higly recommend Amar.

Bhuplesh Gupta | Technical Consultant at Apple (Exilant) May 11, 2015, Bhuplesh was Amar’s client -- May 2015

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

Amit Kotwal | Senior Software Engineer at Google April 8, 2015, Amit was Amar’s client -- Apr 2015

Amar is an outstanding agent with a truly professional, efficient and, above all, caring team.
I think Amar’s approach is unique because he brings an entire package and team to the task, including mortgage and insurance.

Amar was involved in every stage, from negotiating with the seller’s agent, working with the lender, to closing the deal.
He got us a great price, a good discount from the lender, and brought us to close of escrow in just 19 days.
With our short escrow, we were panicking whenever we had any hiccups in the process. Amar calmly guided us through the process and soothed our panic. He also patiently answered all our many questions and continuously ensured that we had all the information we needed.

We would definitely recommend Amar to anyone looking to buy a home in the Bay Area.

Vinod Gomathi Nayagam | Sr. Software Engineer January 30, 2015, Vinod was Amar’s client -- Jan 2015

We first met Amar on Sep 11th based on reviews. As first time home buyers we were not clear about the entire home buying process. Amar explained us about all the steps and initiated our pre-approval. No one believed we put our first offer within a month (Oct 10th) of our home search. Amar and his assistant Maria efficiently assisted us on getting through this offer though there were multiple competing offers. He with his excellent contacts expedite all the process which involved loan process, inspection, appraisal, and insurance. We closed escrow and got our dream home key exactly within 2 months (Nov 10th) of meeting Amar. Its all still like a dream….

Overall Amar has a very talented team and he makes you feel comfortable in the entire home buying process.

Balakumar Rajendran | Component Design Engineer at Intel January 27, 2015, Balakumar was Amar’s client -- Jan 2015

Amar truly is an excellent Realtor®, but more than that he is an excellent person to work with. Without him, we wouldn’t have been able to say that we are happy home owners now.

Being first time home buyers and especially in a market like bay area, we were quite not sure how and where to get started. It is at that point we met Amar. Amar and his team from the beginning have been with us at each and every step. We began searching for houses and we told what we liked and what we didn’t and he was able to clearly understand our needs and show us the houses to our likes.

Once we decided on the house we had to put the offer for it. This is where Amar’s expertise came into the picture. He negotiated so much with the seller agent back and forth in ways that I would have never imagined. His strategy worked brilliantly and win the offer. Amar didn’t just stop there. He went on to talk with the lender during the escrow process and he was able to get us so much credit that really helped us with paying ZERO closing costs. This was a BIG thing and once again without Amar this wouldn’t have been possible. He also talked with the seller agent and managed to get us as much credit as possible. In short, Amar is the BEST REALTOR® in Bay area.

I would strongly recommend Amar and his team to anyone who is looking to find their beautiful house. I can guarantee that he and his team will work tirelessly and proactively at each and every step of the process.

Ankit December 15, 2014, Ankit & Rinkle was Amar’s client -- Dec 2014

You are the BEST….

Me and Rinkle, we both are feeling so light now to have you guys around taking care of things…

Thanks!

Purva Jain | Team Lead at Accenture December 6, 2014, Purva Jain was Amar’s client -- Dec 2014

We were so lucky to be working with Amar Amarnath. Having worked with other Realtors® in the past, Amar not only guided us through our most recent home purchase but also provided helpful insight and industry know-how.

He went above and beyond by accommodating our hectic schedules, responded in a timely manner, and overall was highly professional and attentive.

He is very well-connected and has a very professional team and we had such a pleasant and positive overall experience working with Amar. He had many contacts with Insurance officers, Loan Officers who have directly worked with him in the past and are very trust worthy. This helped us in saving a lot of time in shopping around for good deals.

While placing offers also, being first time home buyers we were very nervous about few terms in the offers but Amar explained us everything in a very calm and composed way. We use to call him for every small and silly question in the beginning but he handled us in a very professional manner.

Amar was on TOP of EVERY activity in the entire process to make sure end goal is accomplished as smooth as possible .His follow ups during the close of escrow were so quick and accurate to get things done on time.

Amar has very good communication and negotiation skills so it was easy for us to communicate with the Sellers and Seller’s Agent in a very amicably manner.

We absolutely plan to work with him again and would recommend him for home buyers

Thiagu S | Independent Information Technology November 19, 2014, Thiagu was Amar’s client -- Nov 2014

“WOW!!, Amar has incredible capabilities to close the deal. Saved lot of money for us. We saw the house on Sunday Open house and he finished deals in 3 days within our budget on tough competitive market. Even after closing, he got us some appliances which were not part of the disclosures.

Amar,

We wanted to thank you for your professionalism and understanding our requirements. We feel that the selection of you and your real estate firm helped us buying our new house for the best price in a timely manner and it is a great compliment for us. You were most helpful and treated with the utmost professionalism.

In summation, we are very happy with the service you provided, dedicated to doing a very good job and your efforts are sincerely appreciated.”

Umesh Chandwani | Technical Solutions Manager October 30, 2013, Umesh was Amar’s client -- Oct 2014

Our home buying experience with Amar was excellent and here is why,

Initial Meeting
Within a few days of us contacting him, Amar came by our house to discuss what we were looking for with respect to buying a house. He spent a lot of time with us to understand what we were looking for in a house (budget, location, size, etc.). He also gave us a professional perspective on various different aspects such as financial requirements and the importance of a good school district. These helped us narrow down our search and save us time.

House Hunting – Visiting Non-Open Houses
Amar was very proactive in showing us properties that were on the market but not open for viewing. Once Amar even came down to Sunnyvale between 8 and 9 pm to show us a property that only had Realtor® access.

Home Buying Strategy
Since we are first time buyers and new to the real estate market we relied quite heavily on Amar on how we should proceed. We bid on a property which is not on the market but there were issues such as extended renter occupancy period because of which the deals did not go through. There were some other properties we were interested that had below average schools but Amar encouraged us to stay focused on good schools and location (within budget). In hindsight, we are glad we did that.

There was a property we were very keen on but were not sure it would fit our budget given that there was so much over bidding going on. We talked to Amar about it and he moved quite swiftly. Amar setup a lunch appointment with the listing agent and developed a good relationship before even making offer. He was able to get valuable information and helped make our bid the winning bid with the right strategy. In the process, Amar also ensured that the sellers paid their fair share of the fees (home warranty, title insurance, other fees..etc.). He rebuffed any attempt on their part to get some rent-back and ensured that appliances were included as a part of the sale. Amar extremely good at negotiations and execution of tasks by staying on top of every task in the home buying process.

Escrow and Beyond
Amar was there with us throughout the escrow process (even during signing), coordinating between the Escrow Company, seller’s agent and our lending institution. He ensured that everything moved along at an even clip.

Summary

Amar is completely committed to his clients goals and goes above and beyond call of duty to make things happen, thank you Amar for everything.

Sayali Kadam | Sr. Software Engineer at LinkedIN October 8, 2014, Sayali was Amar’s client -- Oct 2014

Amar is able, hardworking and dedicated Realtor® who is ready to go to any extent to help his clients. He helped us buy our new house which had 7 offers including cash offer of $10K more than ours. Amar gave us an opportunity to witness the offer presentation with the home owner.

He is very good at presenting the offer and has great negotiation and convincing skills. We were first time home buyers and Amar and his team worked round the clock to close the deal in 21 days. Team Amar helped us through the whole process and made our home buying experience very pleasant.

Shridhara K | GPS/Embedded/DSP Engineer October 7, 2014, shridhara was Amar’s client -- Oct 2014

Recently, when we started looking for homes to buy, we found it is necessary to get the help of a good real estate agent. we looked at the profiles of a number of real estate agents in zillow and also consulted recent home buyers. We even contacted some of them and started receiving lists of homes for sale in south bay area. Apart from the listed price, location and some other details which are already available in various web sites, we could not get any real help. That is when we saw Mr. Amarnath’s profile.

The large number of homes he sold in the past year and good reviews in various web sites impressed us. We immediately contacted him and the positive approach in his conversation confirmed his superior ability. Further, he started highlighting the advantage and drawbacks of the homes previously selected by us. As per his advice, we have to remove some houses from my favorite list. Later, we realized he is absolutely correct as those houses are not finding buyers even today since they had some hidden problems which only an expert Realtor® knows. We think this quality of Amarnath makes him stand apart from other Realtor®.
Things started rolling fast when Amar and his team entered our home search. He and his team was always happy and ready to show houses for us. Simultaneously, Amar arranged for loan approval at a low rate of interest. Actually, we got many loan offers but this was the lowest rate. Amar’s team worked during weekend and late nights to get a quick loan approval.

Finally, when decided on our dream home, Amar took no time to visit and make an appraisal of the home and submitted the bid immediately. There was many bidders and some of the bids exceeding ours by as much as 50K. But Amar took no chance and directly talked with the sellers agent and the seller and highlighted superior nature of our offer. Amar convinced them how our offer as whole package better than a mere highest bid. He also brought in his broker into the picture to highlight our case. These are only some of the several strategies used by Amar as a part of his superior execution style which finally enabled us to own our dream home with a lower bid !.
Winning the bid under multiple offers is not the only area Amar excelled. Afterwords, he guided us on all aspects of the next steps in the process such as escrow and deal closing without any last minute surprises. We realized later that the seller paid many of our fees because of the tactful negotiation by Amar. Meanwhile, his team was able to get us a home insurance at super low premium. We never expected the signing and closing of the escrow will be so smooth and hassle free.

All this is because of Amar’s dynamic leadership and staying on the top of every activity that a home buying process involves.We could have purchased our dream home long ago, if we met Amar earlier. We appreciate his and his teams ability to help others and so wish them success in all his future endeavors.
– Shridhara and Mala

Prakash Ramadass | Product Management at Silver Spring Networks October 7, 2014, Prakash was Amar’s client -- Oct 2014

It is with great pleasure and honor that we write this recommendation for Amar Amaranth, THE Realtor® and share our unique buying experience with AMAR extraordinary standard of “Excellency in Service” that truly defines “E=MC2” Service. AMAR is ONE STOP Shop for your real estate needs. Period! I’m NOT a first time home buyer and have had worked with many agents in the past. Trust me and you look no further. Bottom line summary for you- AMAR got us a deal on the first day we MET in Person, AMAR saved us over 75K with fire sure negotiation , MANAGED to close the deal BEFORE open House in a most competitive and highly desired Mission San Jose District. Have you worked with Realtor® who stayed up until 1AM for a client needs and work around the clock next day to close the deal?. Sounds unbelievable right? BUT it’s true…

Let me start with this first- AMAR is truly a “GODSEND” for us. We were emotionally drained out in the first 2 weeks of trying to buy a home in challenging market with aggressive buyers. I reached out Amar in desperate personal situation having only 3 weeks left to buy a home. On My first phone call with Amar, I started with do you accept this challenge? 3 weeks only, Mission San Jose neighbourhood only, Fixed budget range. Can you work with me?. He said Yes and I told him “you don’t have to explain who you are and I have done my homework researching on you – saying that I’ve literally spent over 2 hours reading all your client feedbacks. If there is ANYONE that can do this job, it has to be YOU. And He PROVED it that I was right in mere 5 days. From that first phone call and three days later I personally met Amar first time in person and the next following day he managed to close a deal AND saved US over 75K which is something not everyone can do.

It is hard to find someone like AMAR who genuinely care about his client needs and protect your interest in every way possible. Amar recommendations were very best in the field, from insurance to inspection, warranty that saved lot of money in the process. His advice and guidance through this process was invaluable. His attention to detail, knowledge of the market and “Relax… We will guide you THE ENTIRE PROCESS “approach was something unique that we have experienced with.

Amar is simply THE BEST. A true commitment for lifetime is what you get from Amar. No Realtor® will work and provide an excellent service and continue to support your needs in the way that Amar did because sometimes even via email, phone call just the communication itself, we felt that he was working just for us AND thinking that he is doing this for over such a long time speaks volumes about Amar’s commitment towards his clients. We can’t imagine going through this process with anyone but him. I have no doubt in my mind, if you buy or sell property in Bay Area and not using AMAR then you are missing something for sure.

Naveen Bachkethi | QA Lead at Intel (Intel Security Group) August 24, 2014, Naveen was Amar’s client -- Aug 2014

I started my home search around 9 months ago and today after a long struggle and putting around 10 offers finally I own a house.

This journey could have been much smoother and fun if I would have met “Amarnath” at the starting of it. Nine months ago when I started the house search with my first agent (Not Amar), it looked like driving an uphill without any driving experience.

Experience with my first agent was a nightmare, there was a very little information that my first agent would have about the properties that I would like to see, no grip or very little grip on the market, no team, just standalone. I put continuously 9 unsuccessful offers with him but never got any of them and things went beyond the limit when in a house we put 700K and the house was finally sold in 685K but we did not the house and the comments about my old agent from the listing agent was “where did you got this agent”, That point I understood the importance of real estate agent. It’s not the highest bid you put in market, it’s not highest credit score, but it is the strong real estate agent that gets you the deal, and with my experience I can tell that Amar is THE ONE, who can get you anything you like.

My journey started with Amar after getting introduced through one of my friend and he told lot of good things about Amar, but with my experience with my previous agent was not that comfortable, so did not wanted to jump so did a lot of study on looking at Amar’s LinkedIn profile which was having lot of +ve reviews, so decided to go with him, today sitting in my new house, I feel very fortunate that I met Amar. The 1st offer that was put through AMAR was readily accepted and within 2 weeks AMAR closed the deal, it gave me an extreme piece of mind and a respect and a tremendous confidence for the man (AMAR) and his team. I referred one of my friends to AMAR and there also Amar proved that he is the best, there also his first offer was accepted.

Amar has connections, respect in market and a team which will get you the house with best price.

He has a team starting from loan officer to the closing escrow connections which makes your transaction flawless.
I can say a lot about Amar’s capabilities but here is a list which tells how he helped me:

1. The Best deal negotiation by ALL possible means
2. Perfect execution of the process.
3. Winning property in hot market with right strategy.
4. Personally involved in ALL areas (Appraisal, Loan, Escrow process, and closing)
5. Co-ordination and engagement with WFC and Escrow to ensure loan closing
6. Collaboration in informed decision making
7. Entire process guidance throughout Home BUYING PROCESS.
8. Staying on TOP of EVERY activity in the entire process to make sure end goal is accomplished as smooth as possible.

I strongly recommend Amar for any real estate needs.

Yerram Swathi | Assistant Professor at SVIT August 6, 2014, yerram was Amar’s client -- Aug 2014

Amar Amarnath is an excellent agent and has immense knowledge and experience in the real estate. He is one of the top 5 agents of Keller Williams Realty (Over 100,000 agents) which speaks volumes about the service you can expect from him. Amar understands what it takes in getting the client their dream home by working according to clients requirements, tastes and preferences. He is not just a great agent but a good human being with strong ethical values.

Amar has a special knack of presenting the offer in the best possible way and goes an extra mile to get the offer picked up through various methods using his PR skills which I don’t think any other agent does. This I say is the most important factor which makes things happen for you even in the Sellers’ market. He is very prompt in responding to the calls/emails and is accessible even during the off hours if need be. We personally have talked to him many times after 9 PM as there was a need to discuss some important things before presenting the offer.

Amar does a comprehensive study of the houses in the neighborhood sold in the past 3 months and does a thorough comparisons to evaluate the offer price for the home and thus does ‘not overprice the home than it is valuation. He emails you the reports and the comparative study of the homes sold so that we also know prevailing market rates which helps you to decide the actual market value of the home and the price to offer.

My recommendation to all the home buyers out there is that you will be lucky if Amar agrees to represent you. Trust him completely, relax and enjoy the ride that will be a GREAT home buying experience.Most importantly, the way Amar handled the whole buying process by going above and beyond is one of the greatest memory forever.He was always honest and gave great advice,We got our dream home within a short span of time with the help of AMAR.

We can describe our experience with Amar in single word “Superb!”

Amar’s logo E = MC² is a true representation of his service.

Right House+Right Price+Right Time= AMAR.

Sheila Mani | Finance Manager July 30, 2014, Sheila was Amar’s client -- Jul 2014

In Feb 2014, through a reference from a Mortgage Banker at Wells Fargo (Gezal Nawabi) walked into our lives Amar Amarnath and his teammate, Alicia Sandoval.After the very first conversation we had with Amar over the phone, we sensed that we had made the right choice. To quote Amar’s first words to us “don’t worry, we will put you in your new home by June”. Time was eventually going to tell us how true his words were!

Amar and Alicia came to our home on a Sunday. Their approach to the home buying process was so scientific and methodical. They took the time and patience to understand our requirements and with their vast experience, gave us valuable feedback about what we were doing wrong. Within 2 hours they streamlined our search area in the East Bay, which brought the much needed clarity to our home buying process.

After several Open House visits, we finally came across a beautiful home in the Irvington school district. We made a very competitive offer. Amar and Alicia displayed their experience and negotiation skills while presenting our offer. Amar worked quickly to channelize all his resources and influence (to the extent of getting the Managing Director of the Brokerage House to send an email on our behalf to win the bid). It was heartening to watch Amar work so selflessly for us.They truly cared about getting us a home and it was not just a Business for them.

We lost the home by a miniscule $$. It hurt all of us very badly. Amar and Alicia, who had now become family to us, would call and email us every day to console and give us hope again proving to us that they were more than just Real Estate Agents.They genuinely care for their clients. Amar and Alicia would always say to us “Good things happen to good people and the right home is just around the corner”.

In May 2014, a beautiful home came up in the same Irvington community. Amar and Alicia worked relentlessly with so much passion to get us the advantage on this home. They stayed up till 1:00am in the early hours of the morning presenting our case favorably to the Listing agent and the Sellers. It was touching to watch them work so genuinely hard for us. Finally at 1:00am on June 3rd, 2014, we got a message saying we had won the bid after competing against 17 OFFERS which included an all Cash offer. Amar’s brilliant negotiation skills won us the home without having to overpay in a highly competitive cut throat bid war.

Amar and his team continued to amaze us during the closing process when he told us “now just relax and enjoy,we will take care of everything”. His team took care of everything -Escrow, Insurance, Warranty. We closed Escrow in a record 21 days. All other paperwork and documentation was completed to perfection by this wonderful team.

We are overwhelmed and filled with gratitude to Amar and his team. To every person out there looking for a home, this is THE ONLY TEAM you should work with.

Samanyu, Sheila & Sathya

I was introduced to Amar by one of my very good collegue and friend. I was looking to buy but didn’t know anything about the real estate market or how to go about buying a house. After our intial conversations, I met with Amar and he asked me if I can trust him and I said yes. Looking back, I realized that trust is such an important part of this whole process and having the right person that is guiding you thru it is extremely critical.

Honestly, Amar made the whole homebuying process too easy. He told me through out the process to not worry and to keep faith. I kept asking him if things were ok and he kept saying ‘ Don’t worry.. the house is yours! ‘. He went up and beyond what he said he would do and I’m truly appreciative and grateful for that. The whole team working with him are solid rockstars who really care about Amar and his clients.

I feel so blessed to have met him and get his help in acquiring the house of my dreams. No one believes that I was able to purchase a house so quickly and with so much ease. THANK YOU AMAR!!!!

Honestly, Amar made the whole homebuying process too easy. He told me through out the process to not worry and to keep faith. I kept asking him if things were ok and he kept saying ‘ Don’t worry.. the house is yours! ‘. He went up and beyond what he said he would do and I’m truly appreciative and grateful for that. The whole team working with him are solid rockstars who really care about Amar and his clients.

I feel so blessed to have met him and get his help in acquiring the house of my dreams. No one believes that I was able to purchase a house so quickly and with so much ease. THANK YOU AMAR!!!!

When I first contacted Amar to sell my home I immediately had confidence in him. Amar did not let me down; he was personally involved with all aspects of the sale of my home, kept me informed during the process and provided me with excellent advice.

The most comforting thing about Amar was that he was always available. He kept me feeling assured and stress-free. I would highly recommend Amar as an agent.

Being first time home-buyers and bidding on the first house we were completely clueless about the entire process. Amar, personally sat down with us and took the time to explain the whole process in detail. He was always available to answer any questions. By coming up with the right strategy and following it up with perfect execution, Amar helped us get the best possible deal in today’s hot property market. Amar, even co-ordinated with the loan and escrow officers to ensure that the loan closed on time with no last minute surprises.

Amar was on top of all the activities during the entire process. Thanks Amar for making our home buying experience a pleasurable one!! I will definitely recommend any of my friends to work with Amar in their home buying process..

Ajay Khandelwal | Manager, Discovery & Personalization Analytics June 23, 2014, Ajay was Amar’s client -- Jun 2014

From the day we chose Amar as our Realtor® it was smooth sailing. I have heard so many horror stories about home buying process, and was very concerned about it. The day we decided to choose Amar and started the journey, all those worries were alleviated.
We were a first time Homebuyer and were looking for a house in Fremont for some time and then we met Amar. We had a wonderful experience working with Amar. He put together a very nice well-documented offer that seller was not able to overlook. Our offer was selected, even though our offer was not the highest one. He has great knowledge about the market and individual areas. He made sure that we don’t overpay anything than what we need to get the house. He also negotiated with seller’s agent on lots of finer points to get the best deal for us in every aspect.

After the offer was accepted, his experienced closing team took over. Every detail got taken care of. He was involved behind the scenes working with the loan officer as well as escrow smoothing everything over and making sure it was all on schedule. He worked with the financial organization to get us some rebate and save us money during the loan and closing process.

Amar has an excellent team (finance, home warranty, insurance etc.). Everyone on his team is a superstar. All of them are so approachable and patient. I am sure, I have asked same questions multiple times (sign of a first time home buyer), and every time Amar and his team has explained it to me in same detail with same enthusiasm. There was never a sign of frustration. Amar himself has those qualities in abundance and the same is true for his team.
Thank you so much Amar for all your hard work and dedication throughout the process and we are extremely happy with your service. I’d gladly recommend Amar to any of my friends, colleagues, and relatives and will definitely engage him for any future Home Buying/Selling.

Krishna Mallina | Senior Technology Leader June 16, 2014, Krishna was Amar’s client -- Jun 2014

When I first approached Amar, he came across as conservative on pricing our home. He explained his credentials and clientele to me and was very open and honest about what to expect in the entire process. I was a little skeptic in selecting him as my Realtor® but, when I checked one of his referrals, they had nothing but positive things to say of him. He personally visited the property and came back with revised pricing based on the condition of the property that is more in line with our expectations!

My concerns were alleviated and I have signed Amar to be my Realtor® in helping us sell our first home. He personally visited the property, took initiative in working with tough renters and maintained composure throughout the process. He was very professional throughout and his marketing skills are very commendable. He was able to procure interest on the property even before the property got listed to the public.

Amar was able to procure multiple offers and negotiated potential offer to maximum price point which is well above our expectations. My home sold for highest price ever sold in the complex for the record price. We were very happy with Amar’s services and the escrow company he has engaged to help us. Overall, our experience is nothing short of amazing with Amar. He is very meticulous, professional and dedicated at what he does.

Jasvinder Singh | Sr. Technical Consultant April 28, 2014, Jasvinder was Amar’s client -- Apr 2014

In today’s crazy market where all houses are going above listing price, it is really tough to get a home of your choice. In such a tough market, it is crucial to have right agent with good contacts. Amar is super-agent. He knows and understands his buyers and their needs very well.

We were first time home buyers and were looking for a house in Fremont for over a year and then we met Amar. We had a wonderful experience working with Amar. He put together a very nice well written offer that seller was not able to overlook and our offer was selected without any counter offer, even though our offer was not the highest one.

Once our offer was accepted, Amar made sure that he was involved in all processes i.e. appraisal, Loan, Escrow process and made sure that we had all necessary documents in place for closing. Amar worked very closely with the loan officers to make sure that the whole loan process is smooth and easy. He even suggested us with various Loan options. He had very professional and efficient team and always stayed on top of all things. More importantly, he was very proactive and responded back to every email and phone message. He worked really hard and was able to recover few thousand from seller and lender towards our closing cost. He was very instrumental in convincing seller to leave refrigerator, washer and dryer (worth 4k) as a departing gift. We really liked his strategy towards the whole process, he never left anything to chance and he always had solution to all our issues.

Amar’s professional and efficient handling of all aspects of the home buying process made it possible for us to buy a house in the Bay Area. I’d definitely recommend Amar’s services to anyone looking to buying a home in the Bay Area.

I hope you will be able to help lot many other first time home buyers in future with your kind and helpful attitude.

Thanks and Regards,

Jasvinder Singh

Our home buy was only possible due to Amar’s diligence, network with banking/Realtors®/related services & keen market sense!! Cupertino is a competitive realty market & kudos to him in making it happen end to end! – from putting together creative offer package with the right price (not just max $, & less than our max budget), negotiating with the listing agents to understand sellers interests (late night on one instance), to helping with bank loan (you personally helped get us $2K credit), closing, home warranty… etc. Speaking for my wife & I – we love working with you & we know we can approach you anytime… To us, you are a great friend, beyond just a Realtor®. Our experience with you has been excellent & we would recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat!!!

When buying a house there are so many things you have to think of…. good community, close to work, good school rating and above all GOOD PRICE!! When we decided to buy a house, we kind of knew our requirements but we wanted an EXPERT who can walk us through the whole process. The moment we met Amar, we realized that he is the one with whom we can discuss it thoroughly.

We always liked new Home constructions and we ended up buying one. Amar played his role perfectly as our Realtor®.
Amar negotiated so well with builder’s agent and got us very good deal. During his surfire negotiation process, Amar saved us over 30K to the bottom line. Amar has THE BEST TEAM which helped us in easing the Home buying process.

Amar is one of the best Realtors® out there. When we first met Amar, he explained his approach and value. Amar stood by it the entire time. The very next week we saw a place we liked very much and Amar was happy to take it to the next step. The house we put the offer on, received many offers above ours, and also cash offers. Amar negotiated with seller on why we would be the perfect owners for the place, and sold the sellers on our offer.

Amar has a great team who are very helpful as well in every step of the way, making it smooth process. To be honest, because of their efforts this didn’t feel like a first time home purchase at all. It felt so smooth and efficient till the end. The entire process completed within a month. In todays market, it’s not that easy at all to get a Home in such a short time. Amar and his team made it happen for us. The results speaks for itself.

We are not sure where to begin to share our experience of home buying made so easy and smooth by Mr. Amar. AMAR is one of THE BEST Realtor® we have ever worked with. He guided us like a big brother and a good friend explaining all the aspects of home buying in this hot market in the neighborhood of Cupertino and Sunnyvale.

Amar saved us enormous amount of dollars (the amount we were willing pay above the listed price) in his collaboration process by going beyond call of duty and $8,000.00 recovery from the lender and seller. With his expert negotiations with seller and building relationship with seller agent, he made it possible for us to purchase the house below the listed price 3 days before the public open house, which we have never thought would be possible in this bidding war with multiple offers.

Amar personally involved in all areas like Appraisal, Loan, Escrow and closing process and guided us throughout Home buying process. Staying on top of every activity in the entire process to make sure end goal is accomplished as smooth as possible.

Right from the beginning of our home buying, Amar gave us an impression of being more than being just a Realtor® and was always available when we needed his guidance answering all our questions and being more practical. He took personal interest and went beyond boundaries to get us loan from the bank.

Amar made it an extremely flawless experience – THE BEST we have seen in our experience. Amar did a thorough analysis and best strategy to win the offer.

Two Thumbs up and a big hug to you.

Choosing Amar as an Agent was the best decision we made. Selling home made easy , very professional in marketing, incredible assistance in paper work and Escrow process. We never felt pressured into selling the home which is something I have expected a Realtor® to do. More importantly, however, was the fact that he was incredibly pleasant to work with. He was always honest and gave great advice, very patient with us and NEVER condescending.

Amar is extremely responsive to any and all questions we had, and we can trust that he always has your best interest in mind. We truly felt that Amar prioritized our needs and desires first and that always came above what was best for us. One example is he genuinely helped us even to refinance.

Thanks to Amar for being there with us in the whole process. Amar very flexible, trust worthy and hardworking, and he will always be in your corner supporting. We recommend Amar to everyone who is in process of buying and selling the home..

Karthik Ramadoss | Program Manager at Cisco January 23, 2014, Karthik was Amar’s client -- Jan 2014

Amar is definitely the best Realtor® I’ve worked with. He was very personable and has a deep knowledge of the Bay Area real estate market.

Amar established a very good relationship with the Selling Agent, which I think was the key to us getting the house.

Amar made the whole Home buying process seamless. He exceeded our expectations with his unmatched service and value proposition. I will definitely recommend Amar to my friends and colleagues for any Real estate guidance and help

Aravindh Baktha | Principal Architect at NVIDIA January 5, 2014, Aravindh was Amar’s client -- Jan 2014

I was relocating to Bay Area from Oregon and employed the services of Amar to buy a house in the Bay Area. I had about a month time to relocate to the Bay Area and didn’t have high expectations of buying a home in this short period of time.

I worked with Amar remotely to short list homes we were interested in and then visited the Bay Area over a weekend to tour homes. Amar did a great job coordinating the tour and showing us houses in all the neighborhoods of interest. Amar sought to understand our needs and made sure we only saw houses that met our constraints. He gave us his assessment of the homes we saw but never pressured us in to making an offer. When we were ready to make an offer he made sure we truly satisfied before he wrote up the offer. During this process Amar was more like a friend to us than a real estate agent.

Amar has a unconventional yet effective negotiating style. He his determined to get his client the best deal in all aspects on the home buying transaction. From negotiating the purchase price to getting the best deal in lending and closing costs and in working with the seller to complete issues identified during inspection, Amar’s commitment was unquestionable. Amar was engaged is all aspects of the buying process and ensured and that everything went smoothly through closing and beyond. Amar would follow up well after we’d moved in to our house to make sure things were going well. Again, Amar was more like a friend than a real estate agent.

Amar efficient handling of all aspects of the home buying process made it possible for me to buy a house in the Bay Area in less than a month. This was way beyond my expectation. I’d strongly recommend Amar’s services to anyone looking to buying a home in the Bay Area.

Kishan Singh | Director, Macys.com & Bloomingdales.com October 30, 2013, Kishan was Amar’s client -- Oct 2013

We can describe our experience with Amar in single word “Superb!” This was our first home-buying experience and we have been looking for a good home for almost 6 months before we met Amar. The earlier agent could not close the deal even after putting multiple offers above the asking price and it was becoming a frustrating experience for us.
Since day one, Amar was very engaged in every step of the process. He quickly understood our requirements around good school district, location of the home, price point, and big one was to be with vastu compliant for certain aspects. He engaged our whole family including our kids to understand everyone’s requirements and individual’s expectations from new home. One think we like about Amar is that he always puts himself in buyer’s shoes and evaluates like he is buying his own home.
We found our dream home within a short span of time and that too within our price point. His patented style of putting winning offer, meticulous negotiation skills, and pro-active approach helped us closing the deal in this crazy seller’s market. He didn’t only help us getting the home but was personally involved in ALL areas including Appraisal, Inspection, Load processing, Escrow, and Closing processes. He uses his project management skills to develop a very well thought strategy and execution plan. He always stayed on top of everything, sometime a step ahead, to make sure that we move to our new home on time (before school opens). He took care of many items while we were away in India. We never bothered about anything other than signing the papers as we knew that Amar will take care of everything  He also took extra time to follow up with us to make sure that we have settled well in new home.
Amar’s key strengths are developing relationships with seller’s agents, negotiation skills, and his extensive knowledge about market are priceless. Getting a home at the best possible price was quite tough in this competitive market and Amar has exceeded our expectations doing that for us. Amar’s logo E = MC² is a true representation of his service and he delivers 110% to justify it! We are very happy with our decision to choose Amar to represent us in our home buying process and we would certainly recommend him to anyone and everyone.
A Very Big Thanks Amar…..

Kalyan Chanda | Sr. Software Engineer in Test at Omnicell Inc October 17, 2013, Kalyan was Amar’s client -- Oct 2013

We are first time home buyers and have been looking for a home for a while. As with most home buyers, our selection criteria was good community, school district, proximity to work and price point. Given the competitive housing market, we wanted a great agent who could understand our requirement, area we were looking in and also navigate us through the home buying process. That is when we found Amar. When we met him the first time, we knew he clearly understood our requirement and the housing market. A unique characteristic of Amar is that he envisions himself as the buyer and treats the transaction as if it were his own home.

Once we found a house that matched our criteria, Amar wasted absolutely no time in formulating and presenting a winning offer before any bidding wars erupted. Overall, Amar strategy and spellbound negotiation skills got us the house and also saved us money on the closing costs. He also guided us through the closing process to make sure it went as smoothly as possible.

Getting a home at the best possible price is quite tough in this competitive market and Amar has exceeded our expectations doing that for us. We are very happy with our decision to choose Amar to represent us in our home buying process and we certainly recommend him without reservations.

One fine day, Amar showed us a house in our preferred zip code. The moment we saw the house, we really liked it and desperately wanted it as it was meeting all my specifications and requirements. However, in the next moment, I realized that I am not the only buyer in this market. The house we liked is also liked by many buyers as it is a nice house. All the buyers have to go through the next stressful step which is bidding process.

I want to share how amazing is Amar as a Realtor® who was able to close the deal within a record time and without entering to the bidding war. In our neighborhood, the single family houses usually sold for at least 100K more than the offered price. Therefore, I came up with my offer price which is 66K more than the list price. However, Amar gave us the pleasant surprise just after 3 days by getting the deal for me just 20K above the list price without entering to the bidding process and before offer deadline. Bank appraised 70K over the list price. Amar able to win the deal 50K less than the Bank appraisal value. It’s THE BEST deal in this market. In my opinion, any other Realtor® present my offer price and ask more to get the house but Amar clearly demonstrated in actions clients best interest well above and beyond. As results of his actions, unique approach with listing agent, and proven strategy saved us 46K.

Amar was more interested in well-being of my family rather than making his own profit and benefit. In each and every step, he saved my money as if he is buying the home for himself. Once our offer was accepted, Amar gave us guidance throughout Home BUYING PROCESS. It’s great experience.

Thank you so much Amar for all your hard work and dedication throughout the process and we are extremely happy with your service. We moved to our dream house and “Thanking You” every day while getting settled in our new house.

Karthik Lakshmanan | Software Engineer at Google September 5, 2013, karthik was Amar’s client -- Sep 2013

AMAR is absolutely more than a Realtor®. If you love a house and want to make it yours, Amar is THE BEST representation that you can ever imagine. He does a thorough analysis and best strategy to win offer. Amar has the uncanny knack of figuring out the seller’s mind and developing relationship with agents.

In our case, Amar helped us get our house without getting into a bidding war by constructing a offer within record time. Amar recovered over 5K in closing costs and helped us by referring to an amazing network of providers for everything from mortgage to home warranty. The best thing about Amar is that he is highly responsive and you can reach him almost anytime. He can execute deals within record time largely due to going above and beyond with his hard work and excellent team of network. Amar also helped us get the refrigerator, washer, and dryer as part of the offer, which made the house move-in ready and helped us get started right away.

The whole process from open houses to close of escrow was super smooth. Amar definitely exceeded our expectations with unmatched service and VALUE proposition. I will whole-heartedly recommend Amar to my friends and colleagues for Real estate guidance and help.

Sri Gudavalli | Database Analyst & App Engineer at Wells Fargo August 25, 2013, Sri was Amar’s client -- Aug 2013

Now a day’s, many Listing agents to do double sides (both buyer and seller side) and don’t even submit higher offers because of their own vested interest in the transaction. It’s virtually impossible to do the justice and right representation when listing agent representing both seller and buyer. Lawyer representing both sides. It’s obviously compromise of ethics on buyer side or seller side or both sides. Think about it.

I can’t imagine any other agent other than Amar for selling my home because of his highest standard of ethics and right guidance in actions and practice. Amar honestly represents the client’s best interest above all clearly shows in end results.

Summary of my Home Selling experience with Amar:

· Entire process guidance throughout Home SELLING PROCESS.

· Extensive Marketing for maximum exposure.

· The Best deal negotiation by ALL possible means.

· Perfect execution to sell RECORD price of same Sq.ft Home
in the neighborhood.

· Personally involved in ALL areas (Listing preparation, Appraisal,
Loan, Escrow process, and closing).

· Co-ordination and engagement with Bank and Escrow to ensure
loan closing on time and smoothly.

· Staying on TOP of EVERY activity in the entire process to make
sure end goal is accomplished as smooth as possible.

Bottom line, the flawless EXECUTION on multiple dimensions
what every seller hope to achieve in ideal conditions.

THANK YOU

It was a pleasure working with Amar. Before I met Amar, I worked with 2 other agents and they could not get me a deal. In fact with them I never got the feeling that they have the ability to close a deal.

With Amar, from the first offer we made, I knew that he’s the person who can get me a house in this tough market. Amar got me win-win deal and then taking care of all closing costs was added bonus. Above all, when I saw house pictures in appraisal report and came to know that he got the house cleaned up for appraisal, I was so deeply touched. Starting from finding a home in this tough market to closing was not possible without your help and dedication Amar. I really appreciate all the hard work that has gone into making this transaction successful. All in all, it was a real pleasure working with Amar. I would recommend Amar any day to anyone for real estate needs.

Over the past 25 years we have purchased several properties around the country and have worked with several professional agents that provided good service. Recently we purchased a home in the most competitive market in the country – the bay area. However, this was the best and most seamless experience for us. The main reason for this was Amar Amarnath our Realtor®. Amar provided the most comprehensive service we have ever seen. It includes:
• Advicing us about the Bay Area, its school systems, the commute and neighborhoods
• Showing us a very good selection of houses and educating us about the choices and pros and cons of the choices
• Helping us put together a good offer and driving the best deal for us through effective negotiations without entering into a bidding war
• Personally staying involved in ALL areas (Appraisal, Loan, Escrow process, insurance, and closing)
• Co-ordinating efforts with WFC and Escrow to ensure loan closing

In my opinion, Amar is the most professional, capable, intelligent and hard working agent we have ever known. More importantly he is a decent and kind human being who is easy to like and get along with and one who operates with the highest level of honesty, integrity and trust. We are planning to refer Amar to all of our friends and we plan to stay connected to him as a friend for a lifetime and would work with him every time we have a real estate transactions.

Tasneem Dalal | Job Captain at Gensler July 9, 2013, Tasneem was Amar’s client -- Jul 2013

Mr. Amar has made the home buying experience extremely EASY and STRESS FREE for us. We had been looking for a house for two years and have talked to a myriad of agents, we were then recommended Amar in May. By 1st week of July, we owned our dream home. Amar got us a great value on our home, which speaks volumes about Amar in a market where there is a bidding war.

Amar was extremely involved in the entire home buying process from the loan pre approval process to the closing and made sure things were on track and everything was done in a timely manner. Amar saved us over 15K towards closing cost.

In a nutshell, one cannot go wrong with Mr. Amar as a Real Estate agent. He is extremely knowledgeable and diligent about the real estate market. In the whole home buying experience, we have earned a good friend as well and we will be forever grateful to him for buying us our home.

Zuzar Nafar | @Adchemy Engineering July 8, 2013, Zuzar was Amar’s client -- Jul 2013

Our Home buying experience with Amar in simple words has been outstanding. Amar truly has a very unique approach to guiding you through the whole process. To start with before he gets into any transactional details, Amar completely eliminates the inherent fear/skepticism/stress that exists when handling real estate, which is particularly important in a high stress market like the bay area.

Getting into details, Amar first focused very specific about our needs and area preferences. Once we are clear what we needed, it was a matter of meeting all the requirements and liking a home. Amar made it happen with his proven strategy, human touch, and powerful negotiation strategies. Most importantly, Amar is extremely knowledgeable about pros and cons of real estate. Obvious drawbacks that an amateur would miss he tends to highlight like a true professional.

Lastly, Amar has established an eco system of professionals that make the entire process stress free….starting with the offer to mortgage, insurance to post purchase house maintenance. Amar saved lot of money in entire process which is beyond our expectations. Amar is a one stop shop for real estate needs for any one in bay area.

Amar is the true definition of “Excellence in Service”. You can only be good at something, if you are genuinely passionate about it and it is obvious to see why Amar does such a great job. His motto of helping his Clients end to end is truly unmatched. He listened to what we were looking for and guided us entire process through many options. When we were looking, Amar helped us select the right houses. In some cases, he pointed out concerns that we overlooked in some of the choices we made. Once we converged on a place, he pursued it very aggressively and got us an amazing deal. He helped us with financing and also negotiated discounts for closing costs for us. Amar is someone who is diligent, savvy, and trustworthy and this is such rare combination to find in any Realtor® in bay area. He puts himself in the place of a buyer/seller and that shows in the quality of service and outstanding results he delivers to his clients. I whole heartedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their house in Bay area

Lalitha Krishnan | Tech Lead at Cisco Systems July 1, 2013, Lalitha was Amar’s client -- Jul 2013

Amar is an excellent “ALL IN ALL” real estate agent who is just “AWESOME”. He has an amazing team of people working in collaboration be it the best loan agent/insurance agent, and many others. He guided us through the whole process right from pre-approval and was very involved all the way to the closing. He made our home buying experience a breeze.

Amar is absolutely passionate about his work and made every sincere effort to get us the best deal possible. He treats each deal as his own and gives it the best shot. A lot of hard work goes in the background which we sometimes are not even aware.

Amar makes amazing presentation to the seller covering all aspects. I attended one and I was very impressed. If I am the seller, I would definitely give the buyer a chance just for presentation. The deal just does not stop with the bid. Even for fixing the rate and the closing cost he got us a huge discount which we never even anticipated. At a personal level also he is a very nice person, very patient, very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable in many areas.

Amar went above and beyond our expectation. We earned a good friend in Amar. So if you are a buyer or a seller Amar is your go-to person..

Amar,

Thank you very much for all your help with my home purchases. It is wonderful experience working with you. It was awesome to get these properties at the list prices, even in this hot sellers’ market and crazy bidding. You have been very prompt and process oriented. You have proven time and again, clients best interest all the time in actions and results. This helped me in staying on top of things from my side, especially with all my time constraints. Your help with the loan, insurance, current tenants’ agreements, and escrow process made my job very easy. I really appreciate your help in going extra mile in saving me big $$$ in closing costs by negotiating with the lender and the seller agent. With your team, securing the loan and closing the escrow in 3 weeks was great. Truly, you have gone above and beyond with exceptional service to make entire process very easy and pleasant. Overall, I am very happy and super satisfied with your “complete package” help in realizing my real estate dreams.

Thanks,
Raju.

“Stressful”, “frustrating”, “tough” – these are some of the words that usually come to one’s mind when one thinks about buying one’s first home. We have been hunting our first home for the past 6 months, but with no luck. Multiple offers submitted, few got counters and nothing accepted. We were also waiting for our first kid to arrive this summer. Life was chaotic at best until we bumped into Amar (through one of our friends at LinkedIn).

From our very first conversation with Amar, we could feel the difference between him and other agents we have been working with. Amar came across somebody who has in-depth knowledge of the Bay Area real-estate market and knows how to win in pressure situations. He was very very cooperative in understanding our requirements and guiding us through various areas.

With multiple set-backs, we had very little hope about buying it in this aggressive market. Amar assured us that he would try his level best and there is nothing to be worried about. He has a calming presence which soothes the buyers and gives them this peace of mind. Couple of days after submitting our offer, to our surprise Amar came back to us with our offer accepted!!! We are the winners of fierce competition (10 offers) and our offer is not the highest offer. Finally, we settled in a nice corner unit in the heart of Sunnyvale. That was the first one we were working with Amar. We loved the home, its lay out and its neighbourhood.

Amar worked really hard behind the scenes and added that personal touch in negotiating the deal for us. Besides, he was at the fore front of each and every stage of the home buying and saved lot of money in the process. Staying at top of things, he also made us understand the various aspects of being a home owner. He worked with the loan officer, escrow officer, selling agent, appraisal officer, insurance agent and a whole bunch of people to close the deal in less than 15 days.

The speed at which Amar works is truly unbelievable. With him around, one does not need to worry about a thing. Sometimes, I feel that one has 24 hours in a day, but Amar has 30 hours in a day. The amount of stuff he manages to get done is remarkable. One has to meet and work with him to truly understand and experience it. Basically, Amar is a really nice person and lovely to work. He has his heart in this profession and brings the human aspect in the things he does. I can’t recommend enough about Amar’s contribution in fulfilling our dream of being a home owner. He is a ROCKSTAR!

Sony Mohapatra | Senior Test Engineer at LinkedIN April 23, 2013, Sony was Amar’s client -- Apr 2013

I don’t know if I should say it was destiny or luck to have met Amar who helped us fulfil our dream of buying a house in the bay area in this high market in just 3 weeks time. We had been searching for houses for a long time until we met Amar 3 weeks back. This was the house we could call “home”. If not for Amar we wouldn’t have been able to get this house.

Amar is hands down the best agent around. This was our first bid with him and he got us our “home”. He was more than an agent to us. He understood exactly what we wanted and he gave his 200% to get us this house. He is very professional with a personal touch and that’s what makes him different from other agents. He goes out of his way to get the best deal possible. His continuous involvement in all areas, guidance and personal attention is definitely a huge plus.

Amar saved us a lot of money and was able to recover a large amount from the lender/seller. After the offer was accepted the closing was so smooth. We closed in 11 days which was an aggressive deadline to meet. In spite of which we were completely stress free and did not have to be thinking about loan, appraisal, escrow etc. Amar and his team handled the whole process working long hours getting things done. This is a huge advantage since being first time buyers without proper guidance, we would be stressed all the time. With Amar that stress was far from reach.

Amar is on top of things with perfect execution in multiple offer situations. With Amar you can blindly trust him on the whole process. With his experience and previous track record of winning offers one can easily get what they want. Amar is the most genuine person who gives his frank opinion on the property and appropriate guidance to new home buyers.

I would definitely recommend Amar to any buyer who wants to realise their dream of owning their dream house. Amar will make it happen!

My Home Buying Experience Since I made contact with Amar Amarnath

Hi Amar, It is with gratitude that I say Thank You for your efforts that enabled me to buy a home in this highly competitive market.
I want to go over from the days of my first contact with Amar that happened only three months ago in January 2013. Since then our interaction has been nothing but pleasant during our combined efforts in our home buying experience. We toured homes together and in that process Amar explained to us several bits of pros and cons in each property educating us and giving his honest opinion about the homes and whether it is worth to proceed or not. Frankly, we learnt several bits of information of what to look for in a potential home.

Amar is always available to clarify and explain various aspects of home buying process and available to tour homes at the first available opportunity. He utilizes his enormous experience in real estate business and transfers that knowledge to help his clients and goes out of way in doing so. I can attest to that with my own experience where Amar helped me get a great deal while negotiating in a very competitive environment with multiple and handsome offers from the competitors.

Amar’s reputation in the real estate business, methodical approach and analysis, highest standards of ethics, professional way of handling the negotiations, and ability to convince the seller’s agents are phenomenal. More importantly, the personal touch he brings to negotiating table makes him what I call Amazing Amar. No wonder he is one of the most popular and trustworthy Realtors® around. He also brings in positive surprises along the way.

Amar has wonderful team that makes home buying process quite comfortable and importantly also enjoyable, closes the deal in record short times. He takes a very proactive care to ensure the process is moving smoothly by going above and beyond. Amar involves in loan pre-approval process, coordination and engagement with bank and escrow process, appraisal, loan process, and closing process by staying on top of the entire home buying process.

Amar is good at heart and puts his efforts as it his own home buying process and that is a very important aspect as far I am concerned where in you build trust. He saved us lot of money in the process. In a nutshell, we have benefitted a great deal by approaching Amar Amarnath for our home purchase. I strongly advise potential home buyers to utilize his professional experience to benefit.
Thanks,

Ravi Shankar and Shailaja Renduchintala

Mahesh Machineni | Tech Leader at Cisco April 19, 2013, Mahesh was Amar’s client -- Apr 2013

In my opinion, Amar is the best real estate agent in Bay Area. When we started looking to buy a home, Amar was very instrumental in deciding the area. He has good knowledge of the good residential areas around Bay Area. He is very friendly, understands our needs carefully. We are very particular about the direction and vasthu of the home. Amar was always available to see every house and provide his honest opinion about each home. Because of his vast experience and deep interest in real estate, Amar is able to provide the best feedback; he is very patient and gives great attention to buyer’s needs. Amar treats it as buying his own home. Amar documents each home we considered; which greatly helped us in making final decision.

When we finally decided to make an offer, Amar presented the offer in a very unique and most effective way (Amar’s patented style of presenting an offer) to win the offer in multiple offer situation (over 20 offers). He not only won the offer even though it was not the highest offer, also saved us very good amount of money in the whole process.

Most importantly, there was more competing offer to seller from listing agent’s office. With Amar’s unique approach and proven strategy, we were able to win our offer in virtually impossible situation. I have personally experienced Amar’s spellbinding offer presentation and creativity with sellers and listing agent. In today’s’ market, Amar makes a BIG difference in winning deals with clients interest in heart.

Amar followed up with the seller agent very proactively in a professional way. He has best network of Loan Agents and Escrow Agents, hence we were able to close the escrow in record time. The loan Agent Yogesh has always been available, very responsive and got me the best possible rate due to Amar’s relationship and closed the loan in a very short period of time. Amar also has the best network of home improvement contractors, plumbers, pet control contractors. Amar communicates each Key Mile Stones (KMS) in home buying process steps in detail. The entire home buying process from acceptance of the offer to closing of escrow is very pleasant and smooth and exceeded all my expectations.

Thank you very much Amar. I highly recommend Amar as a Real Estate agent for right guidance (extremely critical), peace of mind transaction (very important), and value proposition (tangible results).

Martin (KaFai) Lau | Product Architect/Software Developer April 10, 2013, Martin (KaFai) was Amar’s client -- Apr 2013

I had a pleasant home buying experience with Amar as my agent. I had been looking at homes to buy for several months before I met Amar. After I met Amar, I became a home owner within a short few weeks. With real-estate websites giving all the information needed it might seem an agent is not absolutely needed. But in a challenging market it is very important to have someone like Amar as your real estate agent.
Main advantages when having Amar as your agent:
Amar brings in a team to take care of entire real estate transaction. You get a hassle free buying experience.
Amar is extremely committed. If he thinks that a property is suitable for his client, he will try his very best to get it while staying within the client’s comfort level.
Amar reputation for guaranteed results gives an extra edge when offers are close and works as a close team.
Amar being very proactive and focused execution gives a huge advantage in current challenging market environment.
Amar believes on establishing long term relationship with his clients. He is not someone who just vanishes after finishing the transaction. He really cares about his clients and wants to get the best deal that is suitable for them.
Amar will definitely help with his treasure trove of knowledge in real estate.

Amit Sangani | CTO & Co-Founder, MightyText March 23, 2013, Amit was Amar’s client -- Mar 2013

Hands down, Amar is one of the best real estate agents in Bay Area! We were looking for a home in Los Altos/Palo Alto in crazy market where each home was receiving 5+ offers at minimum. Amar was able to find a beautiful home for us and at extremely good value. Amazingly, he won the deal for $40K less than the highest offer. How did he do it? He put extremely enticing offer to seller almost equivalent to cash offer, but not really a cash offer! Seller accepted our offer over the highest offer. Very few agents are skilled enough to execute the way Amar does. Amar’s amazing execution, negotiation skills, and offer strategy, bar none. He negotiated close to $15K towards the closing costs – saving us almost $55K in addition to finding extremely valuable property which we both agree can be sold for $200K above what we bought for in this market.

He negotiated to make it a win-win situation for us and the seller. He also project managed the entire process super efficiently (for e.g. working with loan agent, keeping seller agent warm, Home warranty, Escrow, Funding, Recording, etc). Our file was complex, but Amar & Yogesh (loan agent) totally nailed it.

Here are some of Amar’s pros for buyers out there. Amar –
– Understands bay area market really well.
– Evaluates each home as if he was looking for his own family
– Does not waste time bidding on properties which do not provide value for his buyers
– Negotiates and puts an extremely compelling offer which is sure to save buyer’s hard-earned dollars
– Guides through the entire process which is really priceless
– Is a nice person by heart!

If you are looking to buy a property without Amar, you are truly missing out an opportunity!

Uthra Natarajan | Sr Software QA Engineer March 11, 2013, Uthra was Amar’s client -- Mar 2013

Amar is one of the most genuine person we have met and he has deep knowledge in real estate business. He helped us get our first home for which there we 40+ bidders and multiple cash offers , and convinced the sellers to pick us. He guided us throughout the process from pre approval to getting the loan and helped to make informed decision. His ability to understand the customer’s unique requirements and then trying to match a house that satisfies most is simply amazing. He also helped us save a lot of money in the closing cost and got us the best rates ever. Overall a very satisfying experience. I would recommend Amar to anyone who is thinking of buying a home in Bay area.

Dharamendra Krishnamurthi | Scientist, Staff II – Systems Design March 10, 2013, Dharamendra was Amar’s client -- Mar 2013

I have had the good fortune of working with Amar once, for exactly three weeks between February and March 2013, when we were contemplating purchasing a small home in a location with a good school district. That was when we connected with Amar who came very highly recommended by one of our friends. Just to test the waters, we pointed him to an Ideal home (we knew it was impossible for us to get it within our very limited allocated budget) for which there was 100+ visitors and 50+ bidders, and we also knew that it would close at a much higher rate. We wanted to test the waters and mentioned about this house to Amar. We wanted to see how Amar works, so that we can decide whether to utilize his services in the further searches.

Three weeks later, we have the Home!! The Only home that we saw, and thought was impossible to own.
Amar did a fantastic job of “grabbing victory from the jaws of defeat” so to say. He was always prompt with his updates and information, His negotiation skills was good enough to convince the sellers and their agent to choose us, to sell the house to. we were not expecting this to happen at all, but it happened in three weeks, and at a rate that we thought was impossible to achieve.
Amar possesses deep knowledge of the real estate business, and works with a creme-de-la-creme of a team that literally move mountains to make “Impossible ” a reality. We have found Amar to be genuine, Extremely hard working, making sure the we were kept updated, and most importantly ensure that he gets the best out of his extended team to make this happen for us, reassuring us all along the process.

It was a fantastic experience working with Amar, and I will recommend Amar as the Go to guy if you are looking to buy a home in the bay area.

Sunil Gutlapalli | A10 Networks December 21, 2012, Sunil was Amar’s client -- Dec 2012

We were looking for home in bay area for about a year and we almost gave up and finally we were introduced to Amar through our friends.

When we first met Amar, he first listened to all our requirements and provided inputs/suggestions which put us on right track. Amar came with us to see multiple houses and answered all our questions. He always discussed about pros and cons of each house, tried to understand what we wanted and provided honest feedback.

Amar wrote offer for our current home, he presented our offer in such a way that our offer was accepted even though there is a higher offer. When we found some termite issues in home inspection, Amar gave us honest opinion to cancel the offer. Surprisingly after a week seller contacted Amar and wanted to renegotiate the offer and fix the termite issue. When I talked to seller he said “You are getting the offer because of Amar, he is the Best Real Estate Agent I have ever seen” (Seller himself is a Real Estate Agent). I was little nervous initially and Amar said relax, I will take care of everything. Amar did take care of everything in the whole process. Amar negotiated with seller and added additional items and saved us lot of money. He made our home buying experience memorable.

Amar helped us in each and every stage from pre-approval to Escrow closing. He helped us with last minute appraisal glitch and made his team to rush to close escrow as per plan. Amar even suggested us best option for us in holding of the title, where agents generally don’t care.

With Amar, you will have peace of mind and he makes best memorable home buying experience for you.

Seetharama Ayyadevara | Director of Technology, BubbleWrApp November 8, 2012, Seetharama was Amar’s client -- Nov 2012

In south bay area, buying a home with good schools and
sub 1 million dollars price is not an easy thing. There are, and
continue to be more people looking to buy homes in this range since difference
between rent and mortgage is negligible. Even though you really liked
the house and wanted to buy it — there good possibility that you would not
be able to get the house because of the multiple offers and heavy bidding.
Now that market is heating up, it would even be more difficult to get
a home.

If you really want to get the house and are willing to take some heat, Amar
is the Realtor® for you. When we wrote the offer for our home, there are more than
two offers with highier price than what we have offered. But Amar structured
the deal in such a way that seller accepted our offer even though our
offered price is less than other offers. Then, Amar was constantly in touch with seller’s agent

and worked hard to get the offer accepted. Amar is highly responsive and
is very helpful. He also saved us a quite a bit of money in closing costs.

He has a very good working relationship with Nimeesha and Yoghesh, loan
agents form wells fargo. This made it extremely easy to get the loan and
make the escrow close on time. It took us about two weeks from offer
acceptance to getting the keys. It normally takes around 45 days.
It is a testment to the hardwork and smarts Amar put to use on our
behalf to get the house we can afford in a good school district.
With out Amar we would not have gotten our new home.

Rahul Srivastava | Scientist, Staff II – Systems Design October 27, 2012, Rahul was Amar’s client -- Oct 2012

It gives me great pleasure to write about our home buying experience with Amar.

Amar is one of the most hard-working and detail oriented professionals that I have seen. His preparation in listing comparisons and pros and cons of each property was extremely thorough and helpful. This enabled us to make decisions regarding a property in a timely manner with confidence. In addition to hard work, he works very efficiently to close a deal. Amar’s negotiation skills are par excellence and he was able to save us a bunch of money during the property purchase as well as in closing costs. In fact, we have authorised Amar to make an offer at the market value to get our ideal home, Amar was able to close our property deal before the final offer deadline that too 40K below house market value based on the recent sold comparables in that neighbourhood in multiple offers situation. YES. Amar made it possible with his right offer strategy and great interpersonal skills. Amar setup friendly meeting with seller, listing agent, and us to develop relationship/trust and then presented the offer package with right keys and communications.

With Amar, you have total peace of mind as he does his job with total thoroughness and integrity. As first time buyers, we were unsure of a lot of things but Amar was able to guide us through the whole process without any hitches or difficulties. Another quality of Amar is that he is very patient and not pushy like some other Realtors®. He never nudged us into purchasing something that we were not sure about. In fact, when we were willing to lower our standards, Amar dissuaded us from considering houses that were not meeting our criteria.

In addition to Amar’s considerable professional accomplishments, Amar is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. It is a real delight to interact with him on a personal level.

Choosing Amar was our best decision in the house hunting process. In today’s market, when value proposition is everything, Amar is the man to close out deals with great value proposition and quality of the transaction.”

Kumaran Santhanakrishnan | Automation/Performance Specialist October 20, 2012, Kumaran was Amar’s client -- Oct 2012

Investment (2012):

Amar,
Experience working with you is not something new to me, I already enjoyed this when buying my primary home.
-You got me an exceptional deal on the house with your extraordinary negotiation. The strategy you choose to make seller accept the deal is fantastic.
-Your encouragement and directions gave me strength for me to make this bold move.
-Your dedication to save money to your clients is awesome and you go to any extent to achieve it.
-Guidance on all aspects (appraisal, loan, escrow, insurance, etc.) is simply superb.
-Hats off to your 100% worry free transaction
-My advice to whoever in buying/selling real estate, never miss the opportunity of being Amar’s client. There are reasons for his clients come back to him again and again for real estate needs.
-You work 100% hard to keep up your motto (“clients for life”).

Primary: (2011)
Short Sale – A pleasant travel with Amar from beginning to end.

It was a pleasure working with Amar. I highly recommend Amar to all our friends and family. We were stunned on how passionate he is on his work. Before meeting Amar, we were looking for house for almost 2+ years and we did not get one that met our expectations. Amar found the house, which met our expectations perfectly in less than a month time frame. He is very honest in providing his feedback on all the properties he showed to us. He is an expert in calculating real value of given property in given area. It was amazing for us on how much granular his data about particular house including upgrades, neighborhood, value, etc. This really helped us in making our decision fast and easy. In fact, he spent more time in the property and it’s neighborhood than us. He provided guidance in all aspect starting from lining up loan agent, inspection, insurance, contractors (if you need one). If you want to save your time and money, I will recommend to go with these people blindly. He has the best contacts in all aspects.
-Very patient and prompt in answer any question (I asked many silly questions, sorry Amar) at any point of time.
-Take oncoming unexpected problems (eg. loan conditions) in his hand personally, fix them and just inform you at the end. Just as an agent he don’t have to do this. This is like he is taking a first hit on the problem, instead of just passing it on to you.
Gives 100% value to your requirements/needs and provide additional information to support them.
This has been the best experience we have ever had with any real estate service.
At the end I felt, it is not just a transaction – it is transaction filled with life, joy, gift or whatever you name it.
If you really want to do a VERY BIG FAVOR/HELP to yourself or your friends/family looking forward to buy/sell property, just line them up with Amar. This is the best gift you can give it to your friends or family.

Thanks Amar, for you patience, confidence and never give-up mentality which really helped in getting this house.

It gives me great pleasure to share my dream home buying experience through Amar Amarnath as my Realtor®. It just took 70 days from
the time I decided to buy a home to the close of escrow.Amar helped me in taking the right decisions in each and every step of the home buying process.Amar look at the value proposition of the property before making the recommendation to his clients. The great quality I saw in Amar was in providing unbiased feedback when I had to decide on something. Being the president of a non profit international telugu organization ‘SiliconAndhra’, I have come across many Realtors® in the market but I am very lucky that I have choosen Amar as my Realtor®.

His integrity, client-first approach, community expertise, dynamism, in-depth market knowledge and great negotiating skills helped me not only in buying my dream home but also saved more than $31368 dollars overall. His strengths described above helped me to close the deal even before the house was out on the open house for sale besides convincing the seller to accept the offer for $14k less than the list price in high demanding sellers market.

Sindhu Tatimatla | Manager, Business intelligence at Symantec October 4, 2012, Sindhu was Amar’s client -- Oct 2012

I am sitting down to review our home buying experience with Amar and I am completely at a loss for words. I do not know where to begin. I could just say Amar is THE BEST REALTOR® you will ever find and rest my case there. However, here is my feeble attempt at the review, as I already know that words cannot do justice.

My husband and I started looking for homes with Amar in July 2012, when the real estate market was extremely competitive. The inventory was low and the good homes were going for $30K – $100K over the asking price. It was tough enough to find a home you liked, forget finding the very good school district you were looking for and forget finding a seller who would accept the modest offer you wanted to make. 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. He basically hit our deal way out of the park for a HUGE home run!.

“How did he do it?” I have wondered. While I am still figuring out all the specifics of his magic, I believe it was a mix of extreme diligence, highly intelligent strategy, flawless execution, commitment, and the good luck that only smiles on people who are great human beings.

Amar was personally involved in every step of our home purchase process – right from getting our preapproval to visiting all the potential homes with us to engaging with our lender and closing escrow. Amar saved my husband and me from buying homes that would have been an less than optimal investment. He gave every home we “liked” thorough consideration and worked way past midnight for us on many occasions. It was only after thorough research that he advised us one way or another. Amar has stringent standards on the homes he will purchase for his clients as he has their best interest in mind at all times.

My recommendation to all the home buyers out there is that you will be lucky if Amar agrees to represent you. Trust him completely, relax and enjoy the ride that will be a GREAT home buying experience.

Hanuma Challa | Manager at Brocade September 19, 2012, Hanuma was Amar’s client -- Sep 2012

As a first time home buyer, I was little nervous initially. But Amar explained the whole home buying process very clearly. Amar listens to his client’s inputs and feedback very patiently to understand requirements. Amar took me to multiple areas, showed me different range of houses, and answered all my questions. He gives honest feedback on the houses, real value of the house, pros and cons of the house, and work as a team in making informed decisions.

Amar is simply the great Realtor® and enjoys his profession. Amar uses his management skills in technology industry to go with a right strategy during the offer process. He dynamically adjusts his plan based on the changes in the process. He makes sure everyone in the family are happy with the house they are buying. Throughout the buying process, he acts like he is buying the house for himself. His negotiation skills are great in closing the transaction at lower price. His loan agents are great in getting lowest rate, and close the transaction on-time. Amar will not miss any opportunity to save extra $$$ for his clients.

Amar negotiated the best deal and most favourable terms possible. He negotiated $10K less than the price I told him in multiple offers situation. His negotiation skills are amazing. Amar saved me over $15K in this whole process and saved me lot of time by getting things done without me physically present. Amar guidance in the whole process is priceless.

Amar is extremely helpful to me in finding right home with great price. Amar real estate service exceeded my expectations and delivered exceptional results at the highest level.

I would highly recommend Amar for anyone buying/selling home.

Anil Siddam | Sr. Database engg at Snapon September 3, 2012, Anil was Amar’s client -- Sep 2012

It is my pleasure to share my home buying experience through Amar as my Realtor®. I have been looking for a house in the bay area for more than a year and after meeting Amar (one of my friend referred me), he made my dream come true within one and half of month.

Amar guided me each and every step in the home buying process like my big brother. Unlike other agents, Amar really studies the potential value of the property including the seasonal price effect, comparables in the market, assessment of the property conditions and provides unbiased feedback. Amar is not just a real estate agent he is real estate system which contains a very strong team of people like Yogesh the loan agent, home inspection people, and other experts in the home buying process. I am very glad to say that Amar saved me over $17K in this transaction and I got me excellent mortgage rate. Most importantly, Amar got me my dream home over 100K less than market value in the current market. It’s amazing the way Amar handles the entire transaction. This is only possible no one else but Amar.

Mine is a shot sale transaction with multiple (6) offers, which is very tough to crack. In the sort sale, the seller/seller agents very tough to deal with, they like to sell the property to their relatives or friends not to other people because properties are at discounted price. Amar really crossed many extra miles above and beyond for me in dealing with these people to close the transaction with pleasant ending.

Amar put forth his client’s interest truly above all. Amar is my only Realtor® forever. I am very thankful to Amar.

Sridhar Meda | Senior Software Engineer September 1, 2012, Sridhar was Amar’s client -- Sep 2012

Amar is My Realtor® for Life. Amar saved us well over $20,000 during my dream home buying process. The way Amar handled the whole buying process by going above and beyond is one of the greatest memory forever. Here is my experience of beautiful journey.

I was referred to Amar via another friend who had strongly recommended him as a one stop shop. I was glad to be introduced to Amar as he instilled confidence from the beginning. As the first call of duty was to get preapproved for the loan, Amar put me in touch with Yogesh Rane, a mortgage consultant par excellence. I got a taste of Amar’s networking prowess after talking to Yogesh. After the pre-approval process completion, we have found a house that met all my constraints and that I really liked. Knowing all the constraints Amar pointed out the pros and cons of the house. We also looked at a different house in the same community that met most of the constraints but not all. Here also Amar pointed out the pros and cons, Amar was really honest in giving me the true picture on every home and not give me an answer that fit my needs. I really appreciated Amar for his expert guidance. We discussed both options in front of us and decided whole heartedly to move forward with the first house.

Amar was able to engage the Seller’s Realtor®, explain our enthusiasm for the house. Amar was able to get our offer accepted at a price that was lower than the asking price (even with other interested parties in the race) with his exemplary negotiation skills. During the whole process, there were several times during which we almost thought that the offer would not be accepted or that we would get bumped out by other parties. Amar was on the top of the situation all the times and involved deeply in to transaction to win our offer by all means . With Amar’s creative ideas, we overcome all the road blocks during loan process. We always felt that we were the most important clients to Amar and we always wondered how he was able to pull it off even when handling multiple clients.

Amar was in constant communication during entire process. Yogesh was able to get me a record low mortgage rate due to Amar’s partnership. At closing, Amar has saved me a ton of money by being able to retain the high end appliances, getting the seller to pay for various closing services etc.

As I write about my home buying experiences sitting in my new Home, I can’t imagine how this would have been possible without Amar and Yogesh. The goals I had laid out to Amar were all fully satisfied and I was able to get a house that satisfied all my conditions. Amar is a wonderful individual personally and professionally and a Realtor® who can get things done in right way. I first have to thank my friend for referring Amar to me and to Amar and his team for making this happen so smoothly and in such a professional way. As mentioned above, I can’t imagine going to others for my realty needs. Amar and his team are my team for Life. Period.

We connected with Amar through a friend and some of our other church friends had provided very positive feedback. The commonality in all the feedback was that Amar was best at what he does, very reliable, and trustworthy.

Our first meeting with Amar was mere exploratory but it turned out to be very valuable. Amar was knowledgeable about the real estate market and presented several data points that helped us with our decision making. We were relocating to East coast and decided to rent out our home after a short stint of putting the house for sale.

We were convinced after first meeting that Amar was exceptional and would do the best. We requested him to takeover and initiate the process. Within two days, he setup open house, collected applications, analyzed the profiles and in a short order (less than a week) picked the best tenants. During this time, he provided a detailed plan on the next steps, kept us in loop on all the activities and made us his top priority. He is extremely good in filtering the right applicants. In summary, Amar is the best with creative thinking.

Since then, Amar was always available for any questions and has been thoroughly professional. He has been in constant touch with the tenants to ensure a smooth and pleasant stay.

We are very happy with Amar’s exceptional real estate service and would highly recommend Amar to anyone else that is looking for an excellent real estate agent. We bet that Amar would exceed all expectations.

Nagendra Cherukupalli | VP & CTO of MEMC/SunEdison August 1, 2012, Nagendra was Amar’s client -- Aug 2012

Amar handled the entire rental transaction in a very professional way. Starting with an initial home inspection, he guided us through what needs to be done to make the home even more desirable.

On the marketing front he did a phenomenal job of composing a virtual tour of the property (which was actually going beyond the call of duty for a rental property) and posted it on multiple web sites to grab “eyes” from potential clients. One such client was from out of state; and working with him, Amar closed the deal at a record pace. The property was rented within a week and it involved several phone calls, emails, sharing of relevant documents and performing the needed background checks.

Outcome was an excellent experience all around in terms of saving costs, renting earlier than what the client had planned, and closing the deal quickly.
My wife and I are very happy to endorse Amar Amarnath as an excellent real-estate professional.

Thank you.

Suresh Koti | Principal Systems Engineer/Lead July 12, 2012, Suresh was Amar’s client -- Jul 2012

It’s truly amazing and could not believe that we own a house now. We would say without Amar this could have happen at all. As a first time home buyer, we have zero knowledge in terms of house purchase. Amar made it so easy for us. Before we know what the next step and process is, the keys are in my hand.

It is with his encouragement and moral support that we have decided to buy a house.
The help Amar extended was more of the brotherhood rather than the professional help. The way Amar ensured and negotiated this whole deal right from submitting the offer to get the offer accepted, we have no words to express. To win a deal and compete against multiple higher offers is not easy, especially with 7K lower counter offer price. But persistent negotiation and great communication prevailed. This is true professional skills of Amar.

Amar is great subject matter expert in Real Estate. The way Amar took the efforts to go and meet the lender making sure the loan is approved and funds released in time not only that making sure we get the maximum credit is awesome.

Amar saved us over $18K in home buying process in competitive market. Amar’s guidance and support is priceless. I could definitely say not everyone will be going above and beyond exceptional service PLUS saving LOT of money for the home buyer.

I really understand how much Amar fought for this home and time he spent on this (more than his personal property). The stress Amar took and asking us not to take any stress is something only a person with good heart can say it. I am really happy that I could able to meet a person like him in my life.

Srinivasa Gundala | Technical Lead – Automation July 3, 2012, Srinivasa was Amar’s client -- Jul 2012

I would to share my recent real estate service experience with Amar. It’s amazing experience with peace of mind and saved over $10,,000 during the process. I have called Amar over phone and asked him to get ready my property for renting since I am relocated to India. That is all I had to do and everything else was taken care by Amar.

Amar visited multiple times to the property and identified what’s need to be done for the maximum value for the money. He hired professionals at fraction of cost. Amar went to multiple shops to get best rate for the materials and did the luxury remodel work within less than 2 weeks at lowest cost. Amar helped me to write rental agreement with new tenant and make sure that the process is smooth.

I thank Amar for doing the work as if it is his own home. He saved me good amount of money and time. I thank Amar for his time and hearty efforts. Amar’s exceptional service and client’s interest above all differentiate from the rest of the Realtors®. I thank GOD for giving me such a good friend, I strongly recommend Amar for real estate needs. May God bless him and give good success in real estate profession in which he has PASSION.

Thanks,
Srinivasa Reddy Gundala

John Barrington | Senior Director eCommerce Sales May 21, 2012, John was Amar’s client -- May 2012

Its Sunday May 20th, 2012 and I am sitting in my new house. What is remarkable about this is that I first set eyes on this house 21 days ago. Without Amar, there is no chance I would be sitting here watching the soup and writing this recommendation. He was simply incredible in his analysis of the value of the property, winning the house against 12 bidders, helping with the loan, insurance and simply being a great partner through every step of the process.

Not only was he incredibly supportive but Amar then went that step further and saved us over 30K. 20K was during the offer stage where throught Amar’s negotiating skills, we saved 20K and had our offer accpeted even though it was not the highest and the second was in retrieving 5K from the seller and 5K from the lending bank. Above all else through, Amar is a really nice guy we actually had a lot of fun in closing the deal in 15 days. I would recommend him to anyone!

Thanks,
JB

Bhuvana Athavan | Teacher May 21, 2012, John was Amar’s client -- May 2012

We had been looking for homes for the past three months in Bay Area.
We met Amar a month ago, and he seemed very knowledgeable in answering our questions in the process of buying a home. We started looking for houses with Amar.

In EIGHT days, We found a house we just loved. Amar worked so hard and got us this house. He saved us $8000 in this whole process.He successfully closed the deal in just 3 weeks.

Amar, We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation for all of your assistance,guidance and advice in purchasing our home in San Ramon.

We really appreciate Amar’s extra efforts in closing the deal for our house. His dedication, commitment and expertise on Real estate as well as his empathy in dealing with rest of the folks resulted in acceptance of our offer.

Also, we are thankful to him for arranging for follow ups and for providing contacts for upgrades to the house to be done in timely manner.
Our good wishes are always with him!

Kishore Aenugu | Systems Administrator at Exwire Inc. May 17, 2012, Kishore was Amar’s client -- May 2012

Amar was introduced to us through a colleague at work. We were first-time home buyers.
From day one, he has been a very helpful and patiently explained us all the things involved and guided us throughout the process step by step.

Amar’s excellent negotiation skills have seen us save more than $25k in various stages of the home buying process (offer price, loan credits or closing costs). He has also taken care of the rent back process to the seller, even though he was not required to do so. This above and beyond nature of Amar has helped us immensely in saving loads of money throughout the process.

We are greatly indebted to Amar for getting us the home we wanted for a reasonable price and helping us in every possible manner in getting it done with the minimum cost to us. Every time, we felt that we were missing out because of some issues, Amar has pulled off seemingly impossible things through his proven strategies, sure-fire negotiations, and contacts.

Words cannot express our gratitude to Amar in helping us buy this home. Thanks a lot, Amar, for making us feel important and standing by us in every aspect in the process.

Deepika Tetali | Java Developer at Winsome IT – Oracle Proj May 7, 2012, Deepika was Amar’s client -- May 2012

We are very happy to know you and to work with you. You were very personable and knowledgeable in answering our questions and helping us to make right decisions in the process of buying our first new home. We appreciate your quick response in setting up the appointments to view the houses, even with a short notice.

We were extremely impressive by your level of commitment; you continued to work with us to meet our needs and answered our questions right up to settlement date. As a first time buyer, it would have been really hard to go through process of buying a house. But with your help it went like a walk in the park.

We thank you for your hard work. And defiantly recommend you to the other buyers.

Sincerely ,
Deepika and Dheeraj

Vamsi Mareddy | Experienced Infrastructure/Web Engineer May 2, 2012, Vamsi was Amar’s client -- May 2012

Amar is a Realtor® whom I would highly recommend. I probably spent a total of 5 days spread over 3 months visiting houses with him and 3 of them ended us with making offers. During the first meeting, Amar takes time to understand your requirements and tells you very frankly about the market and what to expect. He then make sure that every home he recommends is something worth for you to ponder about weighing the pros and cons.

Once an offer is made, rest assured that it is followed up very closely on it and you are kept abreast of all the news. I can vouch that this alone will help you understand the market and shorten your search period.

Amar is very frank about his opinions and where he thinks a house would sell for and he has been very accurate. Once an offer is accepted, he personally makes sure through his relationships that the loan closes soon and you get the best terms possible. Case in point – I had originally agreed on a certain rate with my banker, but Amar later drove down to the banker’s office and made sure we got a further rate reduction. This does show that Amar does care about his clients, tries to get them a house that they want and for the best terms possible.

Venkat Rajappan | R & D at Lattice Semiconductor March 29, 2012, Venkat was Amar’s client -- Mar 2012

Amar is a top-expert in all aspects of real estate. He is extremely passionate about his work and strives to achieve maximum value in every transaction of the home-buying process. He addresses client concerns immediately and ensures all loose ends are taken care of to the utmost satisfaction of the client. He is an excellent negotiator and is a true winner for all parties.

Amar takes the extra mile and goes beyond the call of duty and cares deeply for the liveability of the home as if it is his own. Once we identified the home, Amar immediately engaged his team in a full-fledged way to bring the process to a successful and satisfactory closure. He is very methodical and abreast of the latest developments in real-estate/home-building/loan-process/closure-process and works hard to preserve value to the client in each of these steps bringing exceptional standards to this profession. With his top negotiating skills, he saved us approx. 15K. on this home. He truly means it on his motto of “Clients for a Lifetime’.

Amar is an honest person who conducts himself with dignity and abides by a strong sense of fairness. Amar is a keen listener and provides solutions tailored to the needs of the client. He takes great effort in guiding the buyer thru the complexities of home-buying and ensures a pleasant and positive experience all through. Amar takes great personal delight in being the Agent of Change in the lives of his clients and finding the correct homes for buyers. He maintains excellent relationships with all sides, builds trust and leverages it to find the best possible deal.

Had it not been for Amar, we do not think we would have closed successfully on this home. His guidance and expertise have been invaluable in finding our home !!!

Kul Bhushan | Service Manager at Cisco Systems March 15, 2012, Kul was Amar’s client -- Mar 2012

One of my friend referred Mr. Amar to me and I’m so glad for that. He helped us in getting our new home and we were so fortunate that he was there to guide and help us on every steps.

Amar is very professional, trustworthy and a man of integrity. Throughout the complete transaction he was on the top of things and very prompt and responsive. And most importantly he saved us thousands of dollars which we’re not expecting at all. This deal was like his personal deal and he worked so hard on it to get this house for us in the best value proposition.

Amar provided his excellent services as a real estate agent. Amar has great sense of ethics and duty. I’m so proud that he is a part of our family now. I would highly recommend him for any real estate needs and look forward to work with him again in future. You are the best Amar!!!

Shashikant Kale | Sr. PE at Intel Corporation March 9, 2012, shashikant was Amar’s client -- Mar 2012

Amar is a best asset to prospective home-buyers. Buying a house is really a complex process for first time buyer, as we are not aware of whole house buying process. But luckily we are having Amar (best in market) in our side and made this “buying a House” experience a very easy task. Amar handled the entire situation in timely manner without stressing us out. His way of working is highly excellent and remarkable.

Amar has lots of experience in real estate and he has years of IT experience which made him unique for understanding our requirement and execute the plan to fulfill all the requirements beyond our expectation.

Amar has unique quality to foresight all the challenges and try to find out possible work around by making right decision at right time.

With his excellent Negotiation skill, He managed to win the bid 4% less than other 3 counter-offers.

Amar saved me $32000 in this whole process (Price negotiation, Recovery from Seller towards closing, home inspection, termite inspection, mortgage consultant).He personally handled all areas (Appraisal, Inspections, Loan, Escrow process) and made my buying process an easy task.

Amar’s time management, planning and making the right decision at right time is highly commendable. His knowledge/analysis to find pros and cons for any given house and providing true insight about the house makes him a unique Realtor®.

Could not believe that it was just 3 weeks back when we started looking for a house and now we are a proud owner of one. The whole credit goes to Amar and his team.

Finally, Amar has an excellent network of professionals working with him. He has Top notch loan agents, property inspectors and appraisers and as a great TEAM, they closed the deal successfully in the shortest possible time. (Less than 3 weeks)

Amar,truly justify his motto E=MC2, excellence in service and meeting client goal, client for lifetime.

I’d recommend Amar to represent you to guide how to save money while searching and finalizing the dream house and turn that into great future asset.

Kudos to all his Effort….

Sarabjeet Singh | Director of Engg at Cashedge February 22, 2012, Sarabjeet was Amar’s client -- Feb 2012

Amar is an excellent buyer’s agent who treats the whole process as if he is buying the house for himself. He gives sincere advice and listens to the buyer’s concerns and addresses them. He has great network of professional who he engages in the process at the right time – mortgage agent, inspectors, builder, etc. Amar and his team of professionals work hard to meet the deadlines and to execute to the agreed upon plan.

Amar did some amazing work for us in the offer presentation and review process. There were multiple buyers bidding for the house and our offer was the lowest. Seller’s agent was putting lot of pressure on Amar to increase our offer to get a bidding war started. Amar read the seller’s agent’s situation correctly and did not give in to the pressure. We had almost given up hopes but Amar gave us a surprise by announcing that our offer was accepted. This could not have happened without Amar’s honed planning and negotiation skills.

Once the offer was accepted, Amar took care of inspections, loan, and all the paperwork. He made it very easy for us. His negotiation skills and standing in the industry saved us lot of money in not just the house price but also in other areas as well.

Many agents just disappear after the escrow is closed. Amar has been there to help us in many things even after the escrow closed. His unwavering dedication to buyer’s needs is what sets him apart from other agents.

Thanks Amar!!

Lalith Kancharla | QA Manager at LinkedIn January 29, 2012, Lalith was Amar’s client -- Jan 2012

I never felt Amar is an outside person trying to offer you something. My first time home buying experience cannot be more pleasure than this…..

Amar trained me in all the tools required to take informed decisions right from day 1. He took time to drop by my office during lunch on very 1st week I talked to him. He spent time to understand what I am looking for and gave valuable suggestions on how to begin the hunt.Every listing that I send, Amar has responded what are the pros, cons and suggested actions.

In just 2 months we found the right property, Amar flung into action. Seller had multiple competitive offers on the table. With Amar’s sure-fire Negotiation skills bid 3% less than other offers and still managed to win the deal with his creativity. Winning such a deal is incredible and astonishing in multiple offers situation. Above all, Amar got the deal way below what I authorised him to make an offer price. This itself saved me 30K.Most of the Realtors® simply don’t care saving buyers such a huge money when buyer himself authorizes to make offer price. Amar handles the whole transaction as his own transaction and always keeping client interest in heart.

Amar efforts doesn’t stop there…. I was out of town while closing the deal. Amar by himself took care of home inspection, termite inspection, mortgage consultant, escrow, repairing, etc at the best possible deal. In this process, Amar actions not only saved me over 5K but also time and efforts. After closing the deal, Amar followed up to make sure everything was looking good and offered help to resolve any problems with the property.

Amar’s constant and proactive efforts and guidance throughout the process is amazing experience and joyful journey.

In short, Amar is a reflection of you who guides to take informed decisions. It was a pleasure experience Amar. I would recommend Amar to anyone who is looking for a dream Home.

Amar is the best thing that can happen to prospective homebuyers, both first-time as well as investment homebuyers alike. Right from the get go, Amar offers very candid advice on the whole home buying process. This can be especially useful to first time homebuyers as they navigate the complex maze of property ownership. He explains everything in clear and simple terms so that the homebuyers are very clear about what to expect in the coming weeks and months as they progress towards property ownership.

Amar makes it a point to visit all the listed properties along with his clients. He scrutinizes each property with a sharp eye and offers critical advice on the pros and cons of each property. His approach is very methodical. In many cases he will identify points in a property which the prospective buyers have overlooked and will also steer them away from properties that may not be potentially viable options for the homebuyers.

Once the desired property has been identified is when Amar ‘really’ swings into action. His negotiation skills are par none. Additionally he is very creative in putting options on the table which greatly benefits the buyer. His combination of negotiating skills, creativity and patience in the whole process ends up saving the homebuyers a lot (and I mean a lot) of money.

Finally, Amar has a terrific network of professionals working with him. He has some very fine loan agents, property inspectors, appraisers etc who all ‘turn on a dime’ in order to make the deal go through successfully in the shortest possible time. At the end of the process, the homebuyer (now the homeowner) feels very happy and satisfied with the property.

The best part is that Amar take a personal interest in every transaction and works on it as if it was his own. And with his surefire negotiating skills he saves everyone a lot of cash and stress. I’d recommend Amar over anyone else to represent you for all your real estate transactions. Look no further. Amar has your back!

Ajaya Agrawalla | Hardware Engineer at SeaMicro December 27, 2011, Ajaya was Amar’s client -- Dec 2011

Dear Amar

Thanks for being the catalyst for me to buy this REO home. You know exactly what I wanted and your ears and eyes were on alert to find the property that we wanted.

You have been great through the whole process including negotiating a price that was below of what we had authorized. That was real cool and thanks for getting us the best price. You have been there through the whole process.

We are all moved in and see you soon.

SEAN LIE | Hardware Engineer at SeaMicro December 23, 2011, Sean was Amar’s client -- Dec 2011

Amar, We want to truly thank you for helping us buy our first home. From the moment we first met, you listened and understood our wants and needs. You searched for homes that fit our criteria and steered us away from homes that were not good investments. After we found our home, your connections with other professionals (bankers, inspectors, fumagators, etc.) allowed us to receive quality service and deals at a momments notice. We especially appreciate your determination in helping us save a significant amount of money throughout the home buying process. Your hard work, dedication, organization and aggressive negotiation skills contributed to making this a pleasant experience. Your deligence and efficiency allowed us to close escrow in record time and move into our home much sooner than we thought possible.

Thank you for taking this journey with us and for being very professional and going above and beyond. We really appreciate the personal attention you gave us. As first time home buyers, we were a little nervous and anxious. However, you gave us continued support and guidance every step of the way. You answered all of our questions and we learned a lot from you about the home buying process along the way.

You truly are the best Realtor® out there and we will be sure to tell others about our exceptional expereince.

It has been a great pleasure working with you!

Sincerely,
Sean and Jen

Our Journey with Amar…

We recently bought our first home. Which we never thought we could have btw, if it was not for Amar. Hearing others experiences, it sounded like buying a home can be very nerve wrecking and stressful. However, when we started off with Amar, he provided us with a wealth of information about the location/area that had tremedous potential and value proposition. After meeting and understanding Amar’s thought processes/professionalism, we knew we made the right choice and were in good hands. He was very pleasant to work with and patiently answered all my questions/concerns and even dumb questions :). Nerve wreck and stress thrown out of the window :)…thanks to Amar !!

There are Realtors® who get their clients “good deals” and there are Realtors® like Amar (who understands the clients objectives and goals) whose motive is not only to get their clients a good deal, but get a place that you can call HOME !!..and the constant support through-out the whole process until you get your keys is mind bogling. Realtors® don’t do that, but Amar DOES !! If one understands what trust and faith means, then that is what we had for Amar.

Right from the beginning, Amar’s involvement in the whole process was more then just commendable. . He constantly guides their clients from start to finish. With his great negotiating skills, he got us a home below the asking price (arond $54k less) from the builder. Then came the lender, even with some minor hiccups (new lender), he managed to workout a solution which was in the client’s favor/benefit. He got us additional credits from the lender that we never expected. We not only landed up getting free upgraded appliances, but we hardly paid anything for closing. Then comes to recording/closing, how many people have recorded/closed/get funding before the “closing date”?? We did and Amar managed to get that done.

11.11.11 was a remarkable day/date for us (got our keys), because Amar made sure everything was on track. Everyone has a dream home, but surreal is not the right word for our home, because it’s beyond our dreams. Amar took care of almost all the work. Every little details were taken care. Now that we are closed, we not only have good a house, but I think we have a new family member.. Amar !! Relationship for life..

Rajavelu Balaji | Network Engineer October 31, 2011, Rajavelu was Amar’s client -- Oct 2011

I was introduced to Amar by a good friend of mine. After meeting with Amar, I understood that I was not just hiring a Realtor®. I understood that by hiring Amar, I hired a well seasoned, experienced person who commits to his clients.

Amar first presented a road map for the whole process and guided me at each stage very patiently. Always he was relaxed and pleasant to deal with. In the process I have asked him several questions and he kindly answered them in detail. He treated the whole process like project and he finished tasks by the time agreed with seller, which gave great confidence about him.

Amar understands his client’s need and taste and finds a house to match them. Also he responds to every email/call very quickly. At several stages, when seller or seller agent disagreed, I thought I may not get this house, but he never paused for a moment. He just workaround and finished the deal. At every stage he made sure that everyone in our family was happy about the house.

Amar never pushed me on anything; he explained things and stood aside until I make decision. When seller and his agent said that they will not pay anything toward closing cost, he went and negotiated and got nearly 3K in credit from them. When shopping around for loan he introduces best loan officers who directly work in big banks and I got the best interest rate. He always stands by client side even if the situation comes to staining his business relationship with his associates.

Amar also understood that I have a full time job and scheduled all the meetings as per my calendar. Also he helped to expedite and complete property inspection at short notice at no extra cost. He kept calling and checking even a month after closing the sale about any issues in the house.

Looking back, I didn’t have to do much work to get the house. Amar took care of most of the work. One cannot go wrong by working with Amar. At the end, I not only got a good house, but also a good friend, Amar

Ramadevi Harikrishnan | Sr. QA Engineer at LinkedIn September 24, 2011, Ramadevi was Amar’s client -- Sep 2011

Amar helped us in a buying a property. He helped starting from identifying the property, negotiating price below the listing price and indeed successfully beaten the comps.
Using his well rounded network, he lined up right mortgage consultant, went out of his way to get close the loan with zero closing cost with competitive rate.

He is persistent in following up and in constantly keeping track of things till it is done.I would recommend Amar for anyone looking to buy/sell real estate property as well as any professional advice regarding real estate.

Roshan Shaik | Principal Software Engineer September 8, 2011, Roshan was Amar’s client -- Sep 2011

It is with great pleasure that we write to recommend the services of Amar Amarnath Realtor® extraordinaire. We were looking for an investment property with positive cash flow, in a great school area, and under the market price.

Amar is simply THE BEST. A true commitment for lifetime is what you get from Amar. He truly is a one-stop Realtor® for buyer or seller or for short sale. He made the process very easy and painless for us. He listened to what we wanted and did not pressure us to look beyond the parameters we set. He showed us 40 possible houses and was very patient with us throughout our search over a period of 10 months.

Amar’s experience in short sale process is superior to none, and negotiated a great price for us. The entire process, from the day we started to look, signed a contract with him to be our Realtor® to the day we closed on our house was a period of 10 months.

No Realtor® will work and provide an excellent service over few weeks and doing this over such a long time speaks volumes about Amar’s commitment towards his clients. He is very kind and great with our toddlers during the whole process.

Amar recommended the very best in the field to aid us, from mortgage guy to house inspector to home insurance and saved lot of money in the process. His advice and guidance through this process was invaluable. His attention to detail, knowledge of the field and no-pressure approach were greatly appreciated.

We can’t imagine going through this process with anyone but him. Anybody that buys or sells property in Bay Area and does not use Amar will surely have a less than optimal experience.

Jay V August 25, 2011, Jay was Amar’s client -- Aug 2011

We would highly recommend Amar as Real Estate Consultant to anyone desiring to buy, or sell a home in the Bay Area and would highly recommend Amar as a consultant to anyone interested in learning more about their Real Estate options – investment, short sale, foreclosures properties.

Amar has broad and deep Real Estate knowledge and very strong negotiating skills. He can navigate any Real Estate situation fairly for all parties. Amar is very pleasant, professional, and easy to work.

It was clear from our first meeting that he was a good listener, intent on finding the home we envisioned, and had an incredible amount of experience and local knowledge. Amar has an intimate understanding of different neighbourhoods, schools, and local issues as well as the current market conditions. During our search he was very flexible with meeting and viewing times as well.

Overall it’s been a very pleasant experience with Amar in buying our first home. I appreciate the time Amar spent coming to the show the property more than one time and over phone explaining all the issues related to the real estate transaction. For a first time buyer like me, lot of things were new. Amar was very prompt in responding and kept me posted regularly about the progress of the short sale and the closing of the escrow. I am impressed the way Amar handled the situation with the seller agent when the appraisal value came short of the offer price. Amar is very optimistic, knowledgeable in the local real estate market, friendly, easily approachable, patient and work towards the best interests of his clients.

Amar is willing to spend lot of time with your clients to understand the needs and the individual situation. Amar also was in regular touch with the bank agent to make sure that loan process was going smoothly and made sure that I got good deal on the loan also.
Overall, I am satisfied about the buying experience with Amar as agent and I strongly recommended him to my friends.

Thank you very much Amar for all your help, guidance and support through the entire process of buying our first home.

Buying an investment property with partnership is not an easy decision. It requires sound thinking on the location, price and prospect of the property. Amar helped me to take this decision, supported from the beginning. Made good deal with the builder using his strategy, knowledge amd closed within a short period. His persistence follow-up with builder and between the partners is very admirable from bottom of my heart. Amar made dream come true.

Amar is one of the most patient and customer oriented Realtor® we have come across, with his association we ended up buying an excellent property at a best deal. I recommend Amar to anyone for their realestate needs.

Our Experience – Amar was knowledgeable on both the real estate industry and the neighborhoods of our interest. We visited several homes every weekend for months, but with our specific needs and tight budget, it wasn’t easy finding the right property. There were a few homes matching our needs but he pointed out hidden problems that we were unaware – most Realtors® would have pressured us to buy at any sign of interest. Amar was incredibly quick on the turnaround time, and was always proactive. His professionalism and relentless determination in making the deal happen keeping his clients best interests at every stage of the process (and resolving unforeseen hurdles) was greatly appreciable.

Amar, your passion, thoughts and actions demonstrates inclination in taking care of your clients needs first. We are proud to have you part of the team and cannot thank enough for your help. We commend you for all your efforts in buying our new home and look forward for your continued association for future needs and best wishes for expanding your portfolio of services. Thank you Amar.

In my 13 years of home-buying, Amar is the only person I would really consider as a true Realtor®. After going through my experience, I do not have any doubt that he delivers the best results to his clients whether you are buying or selling homes. Amar is very knowledgeable and really enjoys being in the Realty business and brings about the best qualities. A few big thiings that he brings to his clients are:

a) His network for Lending
b) His relationship strategy with agents from the other side.
c) His negotiation skills
d) He takes care of all the needs along the way
e) He explains the whole process and maintains profiles and provides a lot of information and steps.

All in all, you have to experience your home buying with Amar to understand what I mean.

I wanted to take this time to thank Amar for the enormous support and expertise he provided us. Raman and I are not first time home buyers for either a primary or investment home and have dealt with multiple house purchases and Realtors® during the last decade. Normally and understandably this can be a very difficult and often nervous time for a lot of people but our experience was absolutely positive.

Right from the beginning, Amar provided us with a wealth of information about the neighborhood that immediately showed great investment potential. He used his great people/negotiation skills to secure the property for us at below asking price when there were multiple offers on the table. His tie-ups and constant checking with mortgage broker helped us keep the loan processing on track with a closing in 21 days! Even in situations where he did not have a prior working relationship with people (for example, he worked with new people in the Title Company), he was able to use his great negotiation skills to influence the situation in our favor. Also, in the process he forges new relationships that will help his clients further.

The Extra Mile: That’s how we’d sum our experience with Amar. As a first time home buyer with a demanding job, purchasing a home seemed like a daunting task. We were amazed how Amar mastered knowing our needs in detail, and immediately found options that were perfect for us, both personally and financially. Within a month, we managed to make an offer, close, and move in to our first home. We’ve been thrilled with our choice ever since. Amar started with us from ground zero that is from getting pre-approval, introducing most sought out neighborhood in Menlo Park, showing the best schools in California, detailed information about the neighborhood like safety, what the neighborhood means for the kids. Amar connected me to loan officer, Jazzy singh, in his team, who was nothing short of stellar in assisting me in the loan process starting from pre-approval to closing the loan despite big obstacles with my specific situation, Amar and Jazzy worked hand in hand to resolve all the issues on time under stressful circumstances. Starting from making an offer, Amar thought through the whole thing very carefully, in spite of the property being in most sought out neighborhood and multiple offers on property for beyond the list price, he got the property $50k less than the list price, he got us the inspection with no cost done, went through the inspection reports and educated how it can be taken care, if it is not for his education and getting 80% discount ($8000) on the termite, we might have lost the property thinking the cost of fixing is enormous. Amar went an extra mile to not only to get the $50K less on the list price under multiple offer situation, but he negotiated to pay a few thousand dollars by the seller, he saved thousands of dollars at the every step of closing the escrow. He worked with loan officer to get $7000 credit. Above that he lined up other things for me like getting the termite done with mere $2500, where the same would’ve coasted $10,500, and also getting other inspections done without me physically there. He not only saved thousands of dollars in the whole transaction but also time, that way I was able to take care of personal life and yet got the best deal of the life. Amar is enthusiastic, energetic, powerful person, with exceptional negotiating expertise, excellent knowledge about the real-estate, and he has huge network of people, which is required to get the steal of a deal, it is like buying a house from Costco or whatever is you favorite whole-seller. Amar is one stop shop for home buying and owning and I will recommend him for anyone. Thank you so much Amar
