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