I recently purchased a home through Amar and Sree. If you are seriously interested in buying a home, I think Amar and Sree are the best !!!
Amar and Sree have a great knowledge of the property like location, schools, property structural health etc. I liked the way Amar went on the structural report and explained each and every line of the document and providing the complete report of the property, explaining the positive and negative side of the property . Amar and Sree are good at making the offer at right price, negotiating and finishing the deal . They finished the deal at less than 40k .
My wife was India at the time of purchase, Amar closely worked with escrow and helped me getting the power attorney documents from India by providing sample apostille needed from India for recording and closure. After purchase Amar sent the document with all the utilities contact, which made my job easy for smooth transfer.
Thanks Amar and Sree for the great home !!

Thank you, Amar & Sri, for guiding us every step of the way and helping us buy our dream home.
Amar & Sri went above and beyond in every possible way to help us secure the home.
They orchestrated all the steps towards closure was a masterclass in flawless execution.
We toured the home on a Sunday afternoon and let Amar & Sri know of our interest in moving forward. They immediately started working on it and submitted our offer on Sunday at midnight. Amar made sure all the due diligence was done and did a deep dive of the disclosure documents with us for 2+ hours until midnight. We were amazed at their commitment and speed of execution!
Next, it was Amar’s unparallel negotiation skills that made sure our offer was accepted. It was almost like magic! Amar did an extraordinary job of presenting our offer. He convinced the seller that we would close the deal quickly and efficiently.
Once we were in contract, Amar put together a timeline of different tasks involved. He put us in touch with the experts in every area (Lender, Home Insurance, Home Warranty, Escrow ). Amar introduced everyone was amazing, and we realized that Amar has carefully chosen the best of best professionals to help his clients.
Amar & Sri’s careful planning and methodical execution helped us close the deal on time. They ensured the entire process was hassle-free. Also, being first-time home buyers, we were clueless about the entire process. Amar & Sri were always available and answered our every question with utmost patience.
Thank you again, Amar & Sri!

I being a first time home buyer, was overwhelmed about the entire home buying process. I reached out to
Amar looking at the online reviews and he being one of the top realtor in bay area, I felt he would work in our interest and help us as we did not know the basics of the process. This decision has paned out really well for us. After the intial conversation with Amar, we were introduced to Sri who took us over the entire process and had hand-held and took us to the end line. We were totally a novice w.r.t to what to look when buying a home and we trusted Amar and Sri would help us make the right decisions along the way.
Sri was always ready to talk and explain to us about each and every step and the background negotiations that were happening between Amar and Seller Agent. Sri understood really well about the first time buyer anxiety and has sometimes taken more than an hour explaining us on why we took the right step. The knowledge and passion she has to help her clients is really amazing. Amar was very good at looking at the disclosures and explaining each and every issue with the home and suggested us not to spend money immediately on all the repairs suggested by inspection report. Amar helped negotiate 40k worth of savings for us.
I would suggest anyone who is looking for home to go with Amar and Sri and trust that you are in very good hands.

We purchased our first home with Amar & Sri had an awesome experience end to end. After being unsuccessful with a few other realtors, we got Amar's referral through a common friend and in the first two interactions we felt that we made a good step and felt positive vibes about our first home becoming a reality in the tough bay area market. To understand the impact, we were in the housing market for 18+ months and after our first interaction with Amar, our offer got accepted in 20 days. That’s the speed at which Amar works for his clients as every moving day in the hot bay area market is tough for the buyers.
Amar & Sri are very knowledgeable about Bay Area neighborhoods, real estate trends, investment locations and they have wealth of experience in both selling and buying homes. Amar is extremely well connected with realtors and he has a lot of respect in the real estate community which is the key reason for us to be successful in the market.
Amar & Sri has changed our thinking about home buying and made us rethink from the scratch and devised a strategy after understanding our needs. If we can give our requirements, expectations clearly to Amar & Sri, as a client we just followed their lead and results were evident.
A good buyer agent is not someone who not just gets the home a client needs but who stops buyers from making mistakes. Amar & Sri certainly has this as a top quality and he protects his buyers from making mistakes. A mistake in a house purchase will become very costly and takes multiple years to recover from. Amar protects his clients from making these kinds of costly mistakes.
Here are my top reasons why I strongly recommend Amar:
(1) Amar & Sri are empathetic to their clients. They put clients' interests first and protect the clients from making bad choices. Everyone says this but after seeing multiple agents and being in the home search for 18 months, I can confidently say Amar & Sri follow this 100% to the letter and spirit.
(2) Amar’s connections and respect in the real estate community. It’s not just the $ value that helps to be successful. The behind the scenes connections between agents matter a lot. This is a key reason why we were not successful before but successful with Amar.
(3) Amar has an amazing team be it mortgage lender, home insurance, escrow etc… Even the support team goes beyond their role and helps the clients. After working with them, I realized why Amar only works with THE BEST of the BEST.
Amar & Sri - Thank you is a small word to say for what you had done for our family. We are very grateful to have you as our mentor, guide, and support system and fulfilling our wish to be a homeowner in the tough bay area market. Thank you!!!!

Amar and Sri,
As first time home buyers, we had questions about the home buying process, the right location, the financials, etc.,
Amar patiently answered all our questions in our first introduction call, and it has been quite an exciting journey ever since.
Sri compliments Amar’s technical experience by bringing her knowledge about the location, neighborhood, value to money, home ROI, and the list goes on. There is no sugar coating of the truth, but just hard facts and real statistics are what you get from Amar and Sri. The actual data is what makes them stand apart from the rest of the realtors.
When we initially expressed our interest in the home to Amar and Sri, they did their best to do a background check on the property, investigate any misgivings, and give us the green light. Then, together, we pursued the home one step at a time. Considering how strenuous and stressful the process is, talking to Amar and Sri was more like a therapy session that put our minds at ease during the entire process and made the whole experience as seamless as possible.
Lastly, we cannot be thankful enough to this entire fantastic team who helped us every step of the way and made our dream a reality.

We are happy to come across Amar and Sri, one of the best realtors in the bay area. We want to thank them for all the hard work they have put in. They made us owner of a single-family house which is difficult in the bay area. They explained the step-by-step process of getting a home, which was very clear and gave us the confidence to choose and make the right decision. Making a preemptive offer in our budget and getting that accepted was challenging in this competitive market. Still, it happened only because of Amar and his flawless execution.
Amar and Team have been in contact at each stage of the process and explained what was happening behind them--from getting a good pre-approval letter to closing the loan. The backend team also made the process smooth and fast, which made us complete the loan process in less than three weeks. The guidance from Amar and Sri from beginning to end had made us understand what to look at while purchasing a property.
Amar and Sri look at the property from a different perspective and analyze them differently. Sri gives us an honest opinion on the property. Their go-ahead was very important for us, and it gave us the confidence to put an offer. The complete process was smooth, and it made us very comfortable.
We would be happy to refer to any of our friends in the home-buying or selling process.

We purchased our first home with Amar & Sri and had a fantastic experience. Amar very clearly breaks down the role of each person in the home buying process. It makes the whole process very efficient and stress-free. Sri helped us qualitatively analyze the home, location, and neighborhood and gave excellent insights into the prospective homes. Amar did the deep dive and provided the structural and technical analysis of the homes we liked.
Amar and Sri both make a perfect combination and played a significant role in narrowing down our home. Amar & Sri are always available via phone and email and promptly respond to all queries. We were also introduced to a lender with very competitive rates and down payment options. Amar’s negotiation skills helped us avoid a bidding war and helped us win with a competitive offer. Our overall experience, from selecting the home to closing the home, was very smooth with no issues. I highly recommend Amar & Sri to anyone buying a home. We’ll indeed be working with them for our next home.
We recently bought our first single family home in bay area and it wouldn't have been possible without Sri and Amar's help and guidance. Amar has a very thorough step by step process with clear expectations and goals defined. We really liked their systematic approach for each and every step.
Our responsibility was to judge the houses on living aspect and whether everything inside were checking all the boxes in our wishlist. From there Sri and Amar made sure all the other aspects were covered. Sri worked on making sure of making us aware about the area and getting us value for money. Amar then goes through all the inspection reports and make sures that all the technical aspects of the house are covered. Buying a house with Sri and Amar is a one stop process. Other than making sure about your liking for the home, you have got pretty much everything covered from mortgage to home insurance to home warranty and Escrow closing. Being totally new to the housing market, we couldn't believe that we got the house in our first offer itself.
Another great thing about Sri and Amar is their quick responses. Buying a house in bay area means you are going to spend a lot and after putting that much money on the table, it's possible to get nervous about lot of things. In our case, it was too many times to count and every single time we felt that way, we either called Sri or mailed Amar and not once did they mind our queries. Both of them always very patiently explained things and made sure that we as buyers were always protected.
Overall it was an A+ experience with Sri and Amar.

Nobody knows the Bay Area better than Amar and Sri..! We had a dream, and you helped us bring it to fruition. At the outset, we were very skeptical of the Bay area market for obvious reasons. We did not believe any agent could help us fetch a deal or make a difference. Finally, a friend convinced us to take the initial step of talking to Amar. The rest is history! Right from the very beginning, Amar & the team did a thorough job of explaining the process and stood right by it till the end with consistent follow-ups. There were so many questions and inhibitions, obviously, as first-time home-buyers, that we had – and we were curious about so many things on so many levels. All our answers were swiftly and patiently answered by the duo (Amar and Sri). It goes to say that you are a hallmark of excellent professional agents. Also, not to mention how simple they made the process for us from start to finish and patiently got us many options before we zeroed in on our home. We have found that Amar & Sri keep their client's best interests at heart. We can always trust that they are on top of every detail, big and small, bringing great peace of mind in any real estate transaction. We could not have asked for a better team..! I have to say that Amar and Sri are by far the BEST realtors we could ever have worked. Their Outstanding attributes are professionalism, personality, attention to detail, responsiveness, proper guidance, and ability to close the deal. With the help of Amar & Sri, we closed the off-market deal in an excellent neighborhood with great schools at our price without competition. It's a virtually difficult task, especially in Bay Area, but it's only possible through Amar & Sri. If you are buying or selling a home, do yourselves a favor and hire Amar and Team!!

We reached out to Amar (from a friend's referral) after unsuccessful attempts to get home due to outbidding while working with another agent. After reaching Amar, he played out a plan of execution and perfect strategy. He is a one-stop solution for the house buying process. Once we selected the home, which meets our preferences and priorities, Amar helped us understand the home's value, finalizing the price to bid.
Amar's negotiation skills and agent networking helped get the home for us. Amar's team helped us smoothly and quickly processed things to reach the closing milestone in time. It doesn't end there. Amar and the team will help you with the things post buying the home too.
I would recommend Amar and his team if you want to close the deal quickly in this hot market.
Thanks to Amar and Sri, we can proudly call ourselves owners of our first investment property in the highly competitive Bay Area. The total time from meeting Amar on a Zoom call, not knowing where to start the search process to a smooth closing and having keys in hand was a total breeze. Right from the first conversation, Amar is very personable, and he spends the time listening to you and your needs. Not only does he clarify all the questions we have on things to consider for an investment property, but he also uses his depth of real estate experience to coach and guide us in our thinking on attributes to look for in an investment property. Once he understood our needs, he introduced us to fabulous team of lenders, who wasted no time in getting a thorough pre-approval of our loan. As part of the next process, Sri comes along to guide us with her extensive knowledge on real estate ranging from areas to consider and what to look for and not for in a home. With every phone call and prompt communication, she shares enough information on the homes we identify, but what we appreciated the most was that Sri would never overwhelm us with information. She always kept us focused on our task. Amar and Sri are so well respected by other realtors. It was apparent whenever we went to an open house. The seller agent would take us seriously when we mentioned that they are our agents. After a quick swift efficient search thanks to Sri, once ready to put in offer, Amar jumped back in and worked his magic to make our offer get signed next day – all of this within 16 hours of us seeing the home. Amar then looped in his army of amazing folks, from the lender to insurance agent to title company to warranty. They worked diligently to get our home closed successfully in 20 days. Amar and Sri were in constant touch with us all the time through this process via email, but they were just a phone call away in case we needed. To net it out, we could not have done our first investment in real estate without Amar and Sri. Having worked with other realtors in the past, we are confident that we could not have done it this fast without anyone else. We hope to have multiple successful ventures with them in future.
