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.

Hi Amar

I would like to use this opportunity to thank you and Sri for helping me and my wife to find our dream home. You guided us in each step like a dependable friend and getting us in right direction in the home buying process. We were clueless on the entire home buying process in the beginning, wandering in different directions with different thoughts. You not only helped us understand what we really wanted as our home but also made us realize our potential of buying a property in the bay area.. Your good reputation in the market along with your passion and dedication for work is truly commendable. It’s really extraordinary that the way you executed the perfect plan by following up on every details to close the deal in 18 days without much friction. We appreciate your entire team who works closely and swiftly to win a deal. We are truly humbled to have you as our agent. I specially thank Sri for dedicating lot of time for us and being available all the time to answer our queries and concerns. You guys would be a perfect choice for young couples like us to win a dream house. Thank you once again 😊

Ram Elango Ram Elango, Senior Business Intelligence Engineer/Lead

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,

Mukesh Gupta Mukesh Gupta, Senior Director of Product Management at Illumio

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 Sumit Singhal,  Staff Design Verification Engineer at Broadcom

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.September 21, 2017, Sumit was Amar’s Client

Nachiketh Gutti Sandeep Nair, Core OS at Apple

I connected with Amar through a friend who had provided a very positive feedback. Knowing how tough it is to get a house of one’s liking in Bay Area, I think, we are few of those fortunate people who got their first offer accepted. We walked into our new home in just under a month after meeting Amar, which for me is a big deal as home buying experience in Bay Area can be very frustrating. Our home buying experience was excellent and stress free with Amar, Sri and Team. Amar and his team are very experienced and professional. He was involved in all the areas of the home buying experience starting from loan pre-approval, home evaluation, offer negotiation, appraisal, loan, escrow and closing, and collaborated diligently and actively with all the participating parties resulting in a smooth and fast closing.

I will definitely recommend Amar to all Home buyers for a smooth Home buying experience and I would like to personally thank Amar and his team for making my home buying experience so smooth and memorable.September 17, 2017, Sandeep was Amar’s Client

Nachiketh Gutti Akshay Gandhi, DevOps Production Engineer

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.

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.

Amar, Sri and team are top notch professionals. Their attention to detail and customer focus make them an invaluable partner in the whole home buying process. They guided us every step of the way patiently answering our questions and following up at every stage.

Amar also brings to the table an experienced extended team of loan, warranty, insurance professionals who provide great serivces and make the entire process very smooth.

All in all highly recommended !August 23, 2017, Karthik was Amar’s client

Preeti Kothari Preeti Kothari, Financial Analyst-Arvato Bertelsmann ( Client Google )

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.

Nachiketh Gutti Srinivas Gantasala, Consultant at Tech-NetInc

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 Krishma Dutta, Systems/Software Engineer

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.

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

Nachiketh Gutti  Dilip Rangan, FinTech Evangelist | Strategy | BlockChain | Product Management

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!

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.

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.

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 s

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 ,

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!

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 make the decision 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 what would be 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.

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.

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.

Amar helped us buying our first home in US. The whole experience was very good. For the very first meeting he asked me to come to his office with family. He actually wanted to ensure that requirements of suitable home for us was defined in very first meeting.
During this meeting, I found that Amar was very knowledgeable. As soon as this meeting was done, he connected me with his recommended loan agent (Stacey Huang). During this step step, Stacey helped me to explore my financial situation. She educated me on various fronts of borrowing. She was open for any question and time. As she assessed how much I can borrow, Amar started sending me listings.
The unique strength of Amar’s abilities came into picture when we selected a home to bid. Amar created an offer based on what seller would have wanted to see in the offer. He presented the offer before seller could actually go for open house. Amar kept a communication with seller’s agent during this process. He was not only ensuring that seller accept my offer, he was negotiating to keep the selling price to a reasonable limit . At the end of this process, Amar could struck a deal which was lesser than price I had originally thought I would pay for my dream home.
I would recommend Amar to everyone for his amazing negotiation skills and great team he works with. I would recommend specially first time buyers to once go and meet him.

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 and his team made all the steps of home buying experience a breeze . This was our first home in US, but he and his team worked with us educating us in the process . Right from pre approval to putting down the offer to closing the escrow and closing after due diligence at home inspection his team guides us through and arranged everything so home buying was a breeze . When we hear about our other friends putting offer at so many homes and not getting , I feel lucky to have found Amar who knew the market so knew what we exactly needed to do to get the offer , no less and no more . He also negotiated with the owners to the Max . We still cannot believe we are proud owners of a home just after a month of seriously being in the market and got the first home we put our offer on.

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.

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.

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…

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!.

My Home Buying Experience in 2016:

The Home Buying experience with Amar is really pleasant for us. This is the second time, we requested Amar to be our Realtor for finding investment Home for us within our budget.

As per Amar’s valuable suggestion, we found one HOME really interesting. However, when we started putting an offer, there were already 4 offers for that Home as it was a hot Home in that area. The highest offer was almost 20K more than our offer. Amar tried his best to negotiate the deal for us. He just spent almost 2 days of his valuable time just regarding our offer to be accepted. He personally involved with our lender in collaborating the whole process. Finally, we are shocked in a pleasant way to hear that our offer was accepted.

Thank you so much Amar and your team for helping us to get our dream HOME. This smooth execution is not possible without your support.

My Home Buying Experience in 2013:

After my Home buying experience with Amar last month, I just can say, Amar is THE BEST Realtor in the Bay area. Amar, as a Realtor always go above and beyond to provide the exceptional service and great value for his clients . In this current market, it is really tough to deal with the seller’s agent as they are getting multiple offers. However, we are able to find our dream home last month because of Amar’s hard work and amazing execution. I would like to share my home buying experience with Amar. Amar provided us the best service anyone ever expect from a Realtor.

Amar showed us a really nice Home in our preferred zip code.
Once we all on-board and offered our comfortable amount for that house, he immediately started working on it.
Amar almost gave all his valuable time in negotiating the deal with the seller’s agent. In that process, he established a good rapport with the seller agent and understood the seller motivations and situations for selling home.
Amar put together offer package and worked closely with listing agent to WIN the deal before offer deadline without competition and price bidding war. As results, we got very good deal. He is extremely good at analysing the situation, winning the deal with right strategy, and perfect execution.
Amar personally involved in all the areas of our home buying process(Appraisal, Loan, Inspections, Escrow, Insurance, and closing). He has great team of people to make home buying process absolutely stress free.
Amar co-ordinated with the WF lender who did our pre-approval and loan closing providing us a really good interest rate.On the top of everything, Amar helped us to recover $9,857 towards closing.

The entire home buying process starting from the beginning to end went so smooth with peace of mind because of Amar’s hard work, dedication and capability. We are 2nd time Home buyers and lot of real estate knowledge, Amar and team makes a BIG diffidence in journey of Home buying process. Thank you so much Amar for all your contributions in our Home buying process.

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.

Amar was super awesome to work with in helping us closing the dream home we wanted. He was guiding us and very responsive in every step of the process from Pricing to Loan to Escrow to Closing. He was always available when we needed to talk to him either by Phone or by Email. All the process went smooth with the use of high tech and we visited him just once on the planning process. In addition to closing home he also helped on bootstrapping the home after the purchase as well like linking us to the right people to take care of all the things. Highly recommend him and would definitely consider him for our next home too.

Amar and team were extremely helpful in our home buying process. As a first time buyer, we were
stranded in our search for our dream home for quite some time. But Amar and Sri guided us right from
the initial consultation to the final closing.

We contacted Amar & team; they were very helpful in explaining the process and also explain about the market conditions. We were going through some family health issues at the same time, so Amar convinced us to focus our time
on family while he took care of dealing with all the paperwork.

I’m pretty sure without Amar’s and his team proper guidance, I wouldn’t have struck such a great deal on the house.
What I’ll definitely endorse Amar for his awesome negotiation skills, his tactics before we made an offer on the house and
definitely the zeal he showed to get the house well under listing price at a great bargain. Amar’s capability executing the entire home buying process is awesome. Its still hard to believe we have the keys to the house.

Amar and Sri you are indeed really good at what you do as many of your client testimonials say but now I can too attest to it. We strongly recommend Amar and Sri to anyone who are in need of Real Estate help.

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.

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 12:00 midnight!) 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, QA Engineer at Integnology

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Amar is best buyers agent I have come across. We has a keen eye to spot houses that have great value. He is an excellent negotiator and treats every transaction as his own and aims for the best outcome for the buyer. For us, his negotiation skills resulted in huge savings in the price of the home and reduced closing costs. With Amar and his team you are assured of being in safe hands and you can expect a wonderful home buying experience.

“Wow! Don’t know how else to put it. Sri & Amar just nailed it. Myself & my wife were getting ready for a 1+ year house hunt process but Sri & Amar nailed it in less that a week – Wow. This is my first home and I knew its going to be difficult from day one as you’re not sure which is the right one for us espcecially with the kind of budget that you’ve.

Believe me, Sri & Amar are just great with any type of budget. The best part of it is they become part of your family than just realtors. Coz what I’ve heard is most of the realtors just work like realtors but these guys work along with you as if they’re hunting for a house. Seriously not boasting off here coz my intention was to get a condo with whatever budget I’ve, but Sri & Amar wont just let you settle for that.

Like I told you they consider you as their family and think about our furture as well and make sure WE INVEST PROPERLY. They got me a single family home appraised at 750K got us for 685K with the budget I had. They wanted to make sure that I buy a home than just a condo for which the appreciation is much less. That’s when I realized these guys are not like any other realtors out there who are running around to make some extra bucks. I would seriously recommed Sri & Amar to everyone out there.

Here are some of the key highlights which made this a seamless experience for a first time home buyer –

1. THE BEST DEAL by ALL possible means – paid much lesser than the listing price – yup! you read that correctly. I paid much lesser than the listing price as these guys know whats the right price for a particluar home. They wont let you fall into that crazy bidding process.

2. PERFECT EXECUTION of the process

3. Winning HOME with RIGHT STRATEGY

4. PERSONALLY involved in ALL areas ( Escrow process, closing & more)

5. CO-ORDINATION with Escrow to ensure 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.

So in less than a month I’m moving into my dream home tomorrow. I still cant believe this is happening.

Once again thanks a lot Sri & Amar

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

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,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Peter Howard Peter Howard, Senior Vice President at Triple Ring Technologies (TRT)

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.

When we started our house hunting, we enquired our friends and they recommended Amar as go to person. They had purchased their house recently with Amar’s help and they had only good things to say about him. It made my decision simple.

As a first home buyer we had lots of questions and apprehensions but Amar & Sri helped us at every step guiding and helping us in choosing right homes and bidding for it. They are very professional but at the same time make it a personal experience.

Every house that we bid Amar made very serious and diligent effort and it made differentiation when finally we landed at our dream home. Kudos to them in seeing the deal go through. They made our home buying experience much simpler and smooth. But it didn’t ended just there, they helped us in our loan process and successfully closing the escrow without any hiccups. I will highly recommend their services to my friends.

Thanks Amar & Sri.

Karthikeyan Subramanian Karthikeyan Subramanian, Programmer analyst at ZL Technologies Inc.

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!

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

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.

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.

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

INITIAL MEETING-PRE APPROVAL: I am very excited and happy to share my home buying experience with Amar and his team who saved us $38K and helped us get our home in 23 days from start to finish. We came to know about Amar in a casual conversion at a park from a friend who recently closed his home through Amar. I gave a call to Amar around Noon on a bright sunny Wednesday, he promptly answered the call and obliged to meet the same evening on a short notice. The first meeting lasted for 30 minutes, and I explained him my requirement and he graciously listened my needs. In the first meeting itself I could sense there is something special in this man and got a feeling that I can completely trust Amar. He started work immediately and referred me to Loan Officer (LO) in order to get the Pre-Approval. My financial situation was little tricky and the first LO could not offer me with any loan program. Without wasting time Amar immediately referred me to a second LO and we could secure the pre-approval.

FINDING HOME: We started receiving the listings from Amar as we knew approximately how much we qualify. On our first weekend looking for home with Amar, I have visited 5 homes and liked one home which is close to my child’s school. The seller agent put the offer deadline as Wednesday which is quite normal and as expected. Amar started putting together the offer right away and started his MAGIC “Negotiations” with the seller agent. Since I had completely TRUSTED Amar I did not even discuss with Amar about the final offer price and to everybody’s surprise he was able to get our offer accepted by TUESDAY night 8:00 PM (one day before the offer deadline) and 30K less than the list price. Like the icing on the cake to top it off he negotiated with seller to pay 8K towards the closing cost, in all Amar could save me 38K.

LOAN PROCESS: Amar’s did not stop there and he started following up with the LO for the next 2 weeks. As I mentioned earlier that Amar has a very capable team, which I was able to experience by the services offered by the LO. The LO is a very nice lady, she went out of way to work two weekends back to back to meet the offer close date of 16 days.

OVERALL EXPERIENCE: I am very much honored and blessed to meet and work with Able, Efficient, Sincere and Hardworking team of Amar & Sri to secure my home. I didn’t even take a single day of time off from work during this process; every step in the buying process was meticulously planned by Amar and his associates. I was getting full attention and prompt responses and his team were guiding and pre-empting me of any challenges at every step. Amar’s believes in “Your Servant with Gratitude” and “Clients for Life” is proved one more time. It was a seamless and stress less process because of Amar’s experience and I got a feeling of “BIG BROTHER” holding and guiding me.

Home buying in the competitive bay area market requires working with a go-getter realtor who can negotiate and close deals quickly. I am glad we found Amar. Amar is an astute realtor. He can quickly gage the competition and the seller as well as seller agent mindset. He also has a very good team who all move quickly executing on their tasks. I had several things going on the personal front at the time I was closing on the home. Amar was very understanding and acted on my behalf taking care of everything which I very much appreciate. If you are unsure about what to buy and in which neighborhood you should trust his judgement. But if you are someone who has done a lot of legwork upfront and know exactly what you want you would still benefit a lot from working with someone like Amar who can help you close on the home of your liking through his negotiation skills and knowledge of the local estate market.

Today we closed on our home in bay area and I have to say that it would have been impossible without Amar and Sri. We literally put an offer on a house in just two weeks and then closed within a month. People take years to find and buy a house in bay area. In our case Amar was able to put an offer on the house even before it came on market and that helped us skip the bidding war. He was also able to get the price down by 15K which is unheard of in bay area. All credit goes to his negation skills and offer strategy.

Both Amar and Sri understood our needs and budget in just one meeting. They are on top of everything and we never ever had to send any kind of follow-up emails. He also helped us with mortgage lenders and pre-approval process.

So if anyone want to buy a house in bay area then Amar is the best realtor you can ever get!

I recently worked with Amar on getting our first home here in the bay area and I would have to say that he along with his wife Sri are very client oriented. He has very good attention to detail and was always available to answer any question that came in to my mind. He also referred us to good vendors which made the buying experience very smooth. I would recommend Amar and his team specially for first time home buyers like me.

Amar was our Relator for our new Home purchase and current home sale, and I can say that he did a terrific job at both. He was very instrumental in bringing down the listing price for the new home, and having the seller contribute more towards the closing costs. In regards to our Home sale, I only have two words for him – Perfection Personified. We were a contingent buyer for the new home, and had a tight window to sell our current home. Looking back in time, I do not think that anybody else could have done this better than Amar.
Amar was very prompt and efficient at all phases of the sale – laying out a workable strategy to sell the home, having a 3D photo shoot done for the home, putting up our house in the market, rigorous advertising, and deep dive negotiations on the offers.
Amar paid great attention to all the miniscule details, and that certainly paid off. We got an offer that far exceeded our expectations and calculations. We moved into our new house being content and happy. ALL thanks to Amar for making it possible for us.

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.

Simply put, Amar is amazing. I am a first time homebuyer and contacted Amar via zillow. He got in touchnwith me and explained to me about the pre-requisites for home buying process. He also connected me to a
lender to help me with the pre-approval. I met with Amar after getting my pre-approval and set expectations for the home. After attending a few open houses I came across a home I liked on mlslistings. The open house for the house was over already and offers were starting to come in. Sri and Amar through exceptional effort arranged for a seeing of the home on the same day evening. After a brief deliberation with Amar and Sri,I decided to make an offer for this home. I had heard many horror stories about home buying in Bay Area.I wasn’t really sure if my offer would go through as there were other competing offers with higher bids.

Amar followed up diligently on the offer over and over again, explaining the merits of my offer over other offers and convinced the sellers to accept the offer. I couldn’t believe it when he said my offer was accepted. It was one of the happiest days of my life. As soon as the offer was accepted, Amar listed out clearly what needs to happen next to complete the home purchase. He also kept all the stakeholders in sync and followed up to avoid any delays. The whole experience was unbelievably easy. Through diligence of Amar and
Team, we were able to complete all requirements even before the escrow closing date.

It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that I am homeowner now because of Amar.
Thanks Amar! you will be go-to person for even my future home buying needs

Hello Amar,
Thanks a lot for helping us to get out first home! You made our first home buying experience very smooth by spending significant time in background and getting involved in each and every step of process. I appreciate your aggressive negotiation skills, thorough knowledge and effort in preparing attractive offer. I would like to thank you for all the tips after our offer was accepted. It just took 25 days to complete whole process starting from preparing offer to get the keys to my new home.
Thanks,

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.

We would like to thank Amar, Sri and their team for helping us narrow down and secure our home. The incredible speed and ease with which we were taken through the process is nothing short of amazing. Amar gave us complete guidance of the current housing market situation, the things to check for and the areas and homes we should plan to target. This was an important step in our goal of becoming a home-owner. He also set us up with the right people for financing and other logistics that was extremely helpful. In a nutshell, it was a one-stop solution for us! Amar and Sri were very patient in detailing the pros and cons of the shortlisted houses to us, while giving us the right inputs on what to watch out for. Amar, as you have said, you always strive for a partnership and client for life—you have one with us. In you and Sri we know we have great advisors and trusted friends.

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.

Dear Amar and Sri garu,

As young first-time home buyers our home buying experience in a market as crazy as the Bay Area was nothing short of a fantasy tale! I think it was just good fortune to be referred to you by our very good

friends. We are still in disbelief that you made us land our dream home in the smoothest possible way and in an unbelievable time frame of two weeks.

Your thorough guidance about the areas to choose for a home based on our needs was spot on. We are mind-blown by the negotiating skills of AMAR garu since we had the opportunity to witness the entire negotiation process and the execution of the transaction. Your personal involvement in the Appraisal, Loan, Escrow process and Closing helped us novices gain confidence in the entire buying process. It is by no means a simple feat to be accepted in a hot market bidding with multiple offers. With the right guidance and best deal negotiation you not only made it a cake walk for us but also helped us stick to our price point! You have been more than just a realtor to us. We found a great mentor, advisor and friend always vouching for our best .
We are ever grateful to you and cannot thank you enough for helping us achieve a big milestone in our life! YOU ARE THE BEST.

Thanks and regards,
Sravya

It is needless to say that buying a home in Silicon Valley these days has become more of a nightmare rather than a dream. Multiple biddings, full cash offerings, 1-day deadlines, inefficient realtors, snail paced loan processing etc.., might possibly drive you crazy. It is like a war out here. But having Amar and his team on your side will make a world of difference. And we are 100% confident that going with Amar for our real estate needs is probably one of our best steps towards home ownership. When we meet him for the first time, as a ice-breaker and to lighten our moods, Amar said – “Do you guys want to buy a home tomorrow? We can do it” ! And that’s what happened more or less 🙂

Next day, Saturday, we went for a ‘open house’ and immediately we took it to our liking. We informed this to Amar and things got rolling at a lightening pace, then on. On Sunday, Seller’s agent informed us that they were accepting offers between Sunday 5 PM and Monday 5 PM. We were little nervous about the short deadline. But Amar/Sri calmed our nerves and gave us a detailed explanation about the entire ‘offer process’ and what to expect during the next 24 – 48 hours. Amar and Sri clearly understood our limitations w.r.t our financials and within the given constraints they prepared a ‘clean offer’, which turned out to be a ‘WINNER’ !!! Amar’s negotiation skills are impeccable and second to none. This was clearly evident in the way he ‘won’ us the deal from 15 other offers. Amar’s execution and strategy towards the offer process is exemplary.

During the escrow period, Amar and Sri were personally involved in all the necessary steps (Appraisal, Loan, Escrow closing etc..,). They co-ordinated effectively with Wells Fargo and Escrow company effectively and took us to the contract closing within 15 days. Amar/Sri were always available for any questions we had and providing their invaluable guidance all the while. Amar and his team were on top of every activity and kept us informed during the entire escrow process. Due to his great negotiational skills, Amar was able to get the closing cost under $2,000, which is something we truly appreciate. In today’s over bidding market, bank appraisals are usually below the contract price. But, the bank’s Appraisal came in 5% above the offer price. Once again, Amar’s negotiation and execution in winning the deals made sure that it didn’t affect our offer/deal. The results speaks for itself in the VALUE proposition.

In a nutshell, we are home owners only because of Amar and his team. We will definitely go with Amar for all our future real estate needs. Also, without a blink, we will recommend Amar for our friends (or anyone for that matter) who are looking for a well rounded professional and exceptional Realtor.

Amar is the true processional relator who was my front-line and took care of every tasks with keeping dates in sync, which is very important for every seller. I really like the way he works, first meeting he spent time understanding my needs, then help me making the house ready for virtual tour and photoshoot, started internet marketing weeks before the open house, navigating the crowd from every corner of the city to open house, filtering potential buyers from open house visitors, connecting with potential buyers and providing additional details about the house. He personally attended every appointments from begging to escrow closing.

Most important part of the home sale is negotiating to get the best price for your house, looking at his results, it clearly shows his strength is negotiation power. Marketing, Execution and Negotiation are Amar’s core strengths to take home sale to a next level by going above and beyond. Amar sold our house in 2 days after 1st open house and completed all the papers works in less than 4 weeks, his perfect execution at lighting speed with record price in the neighborhood through extensive on-line marketing is most appreciating.

Amar you took care of every task in the process and made it look like very simple to me. Peace of mind during the process saved me time and focus on my family and other important things, because of you I saved time and money and made my coast-to-coast move very easy…A very big Thank you from me and Family!

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 was recommended to us from close family who were thoroughly impressed with his services when they bought their dream home. From day 1 of our home search, Amar and Sri were both very professional. They worked through the clutter of our requests, prioritizing them, and honing in on the few homes that met Criteria. Price, Location, Value were all given importance. Once the home was found, Amar was quick, focused, and importantly got the house for us.

We saved time, money and all the hassle, as he took care of every detail from close to finish. I really liked the way he has an extended team and work with the best in business with services for mortgage, title, house inspection and any help you need. Amar practices “meet and go beyond” the needs of his clients.

1. Over 20k savings
2. Personally involved in ALL areas (Appraisal, Loan, Escrow process, and closing)
3. Co-ordination and engagement with WFC and Escrow to ensure loan closing
4. Amar and his fantastic team stayed on top of every minute detail, made it a enjoyable process, and more importantly staying on TOP of EVERY activity make sure end goal is accomplished as smooth as possible.

In summary, Amar was our friend more than a Realtor in getting us the house we wanted in this hot market, helping us with informed decision making and guiding us throughout Home BUYING PROCESS.

Thanks Amar, Sri and Team.

Amar,

First of all, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for pulling off a miracle. When I first moved to California a year and a half ago, I spoke to a couple of highly-recommended real estate agents, and they all told me to expect to go through several unsuccessful bids before managing to win a home. It discouraged me at the time. When I decided to look again this year, and found you, I had no reason to believe it would be any different. The market had continued its meteoric rise, and things should only have been harder.

Yet, you won me the very first place I set my heart on. And you won it at an unbeatable price, lower than I expected to pay for it, lower than anybody can believe I paid for it. That is a testament to your unparalleled abilities along so many dimensions:

– Your negotiating prowess

– Your steel determination

– Your character that always goes the extra mile to fight for your customer

– Your exceptional business acumen

– Your expert knowledge of the market, and reading of the bidding situation

All of the above would have been impressive even if we had been targeting a regular sale, but this was a probate sale! I expected the process to take months in the best case, but you pulled the whole thing off, from the time I called you till the time I had the keys to my new place in hand, in less than a month.

You handled every single detail of the transaction, so all I had to do was show up, point at the place I wanted and the price I could afford, and then show up for some signatures. You were on top of every single detail, from financing to insurance, making sure the closing was done in record time.

You saved me over $30K through unbelievably shrewd negotiations – I am convinced NO other human being could possibly have pulled that off. It was far beyond the call of duty, because I had given you full authority to pay the higher price. The fact that you still looked out for my bottomline is why you have a fan for life. Even your “opponent” (the seller’s agent) was filled with admiration. You take real estate brokering to the level of fine art.

Thank you, again, for everything you have done for me. You have a customer for life, and I will make sure I send anyone interested in buying real estate in California to you. Because my friends deserve the best!

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.

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

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 loose the house that you want to call “HOME”.

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.

We started our home search in March 2013. We worked with 3 different realtors and submitted offers to at least 10 houses with no luck. Disheartened with the market and the incompetence of our realtors we totally gave up home search. In August 2014 when one of our dear friends narrated the story of their home buying we were thrilled to hear that such realtors do actually exist. He recommended Amar strongly and said if we were to buy a house, Amar must be our realtor. Coming from our friend who had a great recent experience with home-buying, we approached Amar in March 2015 when we restarted our home search. We were to realize how true our friend’s words were when we bought our home. We truly believe that we would not have bought our home, if Amar was not our realtor.
From the very first conversation, we realized that Amar was a different realtor than the ones we had worked with. His knowledge of the market and his approach to home buying was different. There was couple of houses that we were interested in and Amar rightly pointed out that those were not right for us. At that moment, we were certain that we were working with the right realtor. When we wrote the offer for our home, we knew that we would not be the highest bidder. Amar knew that as well but worked his magic to win the home for us. Amar was such a difference maker: he clearly understood the dynamics of the deal and changed it to a scenario where if the sellers were to accept any offer, it would be ours. We still cannot believe that Amar was able to do this in Fremont where multiple offers are the norm for every listed house. Amar’s acumen of what clinches a deal is exceptional and was one of the main reasons that helped us get the home of our dreams. The fact that we got a highly desired home in an extremely competitive market (in Fremont) in spite of not being the highest bidder goes to show Amar’s competence.
Amar’s contribution to our home buying did not stop after the offer was accepted. He worked with the lender and escrow agents and made sure that the escrow closed on time. Amar went over and beyond his role as a realtor and advised us very skillfully all along and helped us make the right decision at each stage. Amar has certainly become our realtor for our lifetime.

“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.”

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your efforts and patience in dealing with us as first time home buyers. I could not imagine us owning the house in this kind of market without your guidance and experience. I appreciate your feedback that you provided us from time to time while giving us space at the same time to decide on what we liked during the search process. I thought the ride was over when we got our counter offer accepted but then started a different set of things to deal with, but that didn’t worry us as you were there with us anytime.

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.

Right from the day, I involved Amar – it has been only the best guidance and assistance which he provided me right from the time I asked him to help me in this journey to buy a home.

He assured me a lot during every stage of buying home, that we will get the best home at the best price for you. It didn’t stop at just negotiating the best deal for me on this home, but also helped at each stage starting from getting the best interest rate and benefits from bank, getting the closing done at the best possible(minimal) time and not to mention to get the keys as well in flat 21 days.

I am very happy with Amar and his team. I would refer him to everyone who is looking to buy a house in bayarea.

Thanks a lot Amar. You are really the best !

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

Amit Joshi Amit Joshi, Engineer & Entrepreneur

Amar came highly recommended and played a pivotal part in getting us our very first home in the highly competitive Los Altos/Palo Alto/Menlo Park area. What’s unique about Amar is that he puts in so much effort, like he’d do for his own home!

Amar operates a bit differently – first you share requirements, then you do your own research and look at houses. For the ones you like, he does the same independently. After comparing notes if you decide to move forward then the real machinery kicks in.

In this competitive market a number of factors are at work rather than just a number in the offer letter. Amar works behind the scenes paying attention to every detail to figure out what’s important to the seller. Then he works with you, the sellers agent and mortgage brokers to put together an offer as a complete package. Often this package looks competitive with cash offers, guaranteeing peace of mind to seller, and this is the key difference.

Once your offer gets accepted (with Amar, there’s a good chance that it will happen sooner than later) then execution till the finish line is as smooth as it can be. I was dreading the closing process and the paperwork, however, it really turned out to be a breeze. In fact, we not only got a pretty decent interest rate we but also managed to get a discount that covered entire mortgage related closing costs and then some.

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

Amar is an outstanding Agent. I am a first time homebuyer and he was very patient with answering all my questions. He would always put his client’s priorities on top of his priorities. Amar would travel miles even in difficult weather conditions to show a houses. He has excellent knowledge of building materials and would correctly estimate the costs for any repairs required. Most importantly is very honest in giving his feedback.
Amar has a very good team and they compliment each other so well. You will get a feeling that a strong team is working for you throughout the process. They are so flexible in working around your timings.Once you like any house, they were so meticulous in doing their research and would get to the correct value of the house.
Amar is excellent in gaging the competition and would also magically get to understand the seller’s mindset. He is excellent in putting out a strategy to prepare a winning offer. Amar is very methodical in negotiating and he is your best bet in winning through multiple offers in this competitive market. What makes him special is that he truly feels every transaction as his own and works so hard on it. Finally, I would say that if Amar is in your team, it’s like having the leagues MVP in your team.

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.

We were looking for homes in a very competitive area. He helped us close the deal among many potential interests with right strategy. Being first time home buyers, we had lots of questions and he was patient and explained everything in detail. This was definitely the best deal negotiation by all means. He was personally involved throughout the entire process (loan, escrow and closing).

He was on top of every activity to make sure that our home buying experience was very smooth.

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.

Amar was a superb agent, providing us with tremendous service through his expertise and support in successfully buying our dream home. We were in a hot area and the house had a lot of interest, so we weren’t sure whether we would be able to get it. Amar helped define a winning strategy, then executed against it while still making sure that all of the details were covered. He provided the best possible negotiation, saving on closing costs and including lots of personal property.
His personal investment in our success was obvious, as he went out of his way to connect with the seller and the seller’s agent, communicated with us after hours many times, and supported us throughout the closing process with his time and coordination with his network of experts getting us through the loan approval, closing, and escrow details. His personal touch was a huge relief and made the process as stress-free as possible. We were able to get a tremendous amount of things done quickly and he had perfect execution during the whirlwind of activities.

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!

As first-time home buyers in the bay area, we were really not sure what to expect about the buying process, but Amar made it easy. Within few weeks of meeting him, we found a property that was perfect for us – a property that already had received multiple offers including cash offers.

I wasn’t sure we had a chance, but Amar told me not to worry. We talked through our strategy and he spent that night working up a winning offer he submitted the next morning. Amar is responsive, professional, caring, smart, and has forged great relationships in the industry. He went above and beyond the call of duty to help us.

Amar has incredible knowledge of the local market and has an amazing ability to deal with agents from initial offer to closing. Even if the market was very competitive, he helped us make offers that were in our budget but still competitive.

Our experience with Amar – while professional – was also very personal, we got to learn about Amar, his family and likewise he got to know us. Words CANNOT describe how superb Amar is – as a professional realtor that deliver top-notch world class service!

He was almost always available & took great care in all the paperwork and negotiation and was a great advocate for us. I highly recommend calling Amar if you’re looking for someone to help guide you through the process, address your concerns, and help you seal the deal in this very competitive housing market.

I’d give Amar a Billion stars if it were Possible—I can’t imagine buying this house without Amar. We had a beautiful experience buying our first home with him,. If you are trying to find a good agent, look no further.

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.

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.

Amar and his team did an excellent job in getting us the home we liked.
It was a multiple offer situation and Amar negotiated best deal at 5K lower than highest offer.Amar with his contacts and negotiation saved us couple more thousands during closing.
Amar has a strong team that worked closely and round the clock. This helped winning the property in hot market. Amar was on top of all processes and guided us through the steps very well and kept us well informed all the time.
He co-ordinated with the bank and the title company and ensured loan closing happened seamlessly.
I would highly recommend Amar and his team to anyone Home buying/selling.

We were new home-buyers and expected to purchase in a few months.

Process had been pretty swift and we were able to close-out the deal close to two months of time.

Amar had been prompt in responding and assisting. The interactive property search website was easy to browse and had better details than other websites in the internet.

Request to view property were timely. e-document signing process during bidding & contracts was organized and had been a BIG time-saver.

It is better that buyer does some home-work and be prompt in making various decisions. In spite of that we did some self-study, there were times we might have been getting off-track. Amar and his team were prompt to keep us on the right track based on their extensive bay-area real-estate experience and prevailing market-demands.

Besides home-buying, escrow signing process, Amar’s team also recommends competitive bank loans, home insurance and home-warranty at the right time.If needed, any recommendation could also be provided for the property-repairs.

Overall discussion process has been prompt, clear, direct, friendly and polite. Not only above-state reasons, Amar also offers genuine advice to buyers for building long-term real-estate portfolio. I highly recommend potential buyers to choose Amar’s team for real-estate services.

It was indeed a great pleasure to work with such a smart and talented realtor that was Amar. Right from the first moment I talked to him I was convinced that I was dealing with someone who was highly confident and knew in and out of the real estate business.

I was a first time homebuyer with absolutely no idea about where to start. Amar guided me through the basics of how to go about buying a home. He wanted to make sure that my expectations were realistic and did not end up making a mistake. Amar introduced me to a lending agent who sat down with me in person to work out my financials. I am very thankful to Amar.

Once the financials were in place and I was ready to look for a home, Amar played a role which was very helpful yet not very invasive. Once the property that I liked, I would inform him and he and his team would then do the groundwork and make sure that the home will satisfy my expectations. Amar then prepares a very strategic plan on putting forth an offer that gave me the highest chances of winning the home. Each step of the way from identifying the home, putting the offer, contract process and the financial aspect, Amar and his team were extremely professional and helpful.

Amar personally was even able to arrange a discount for me with the lender. In several key areas where I needed advice Amar was quick to point me in the right direction. I don’t have any hesitation in recommending Amar to anyone who is thinking of buying a home in the bay area. Amar and his dedicated team of professionals will leave no stone unturned until you are settled in the home of your dreams.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!

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.

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.

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.

Amar got personally involved in all stages of this process as I am first time home buyer. He and his team explained each and every thing to make me comfortable, happy and be aware.

Right from the beginning of house search, Amar gave us an impression of being more than being just a Realtor and was always available when I was in need for his guidance/help.

From the day I emailed Amar to the day the county registered me as the owner of record took only 7 weeks! We found a home that I liked in one weekend of open houses, and he made sure that our first (and only) offer got accepted. I was in a somewhat desperate situation given the extreme sellers market in SF and a short relocation time frame and so was willing to overpay to get a house, but Amar wouldn’t hear of it. Even though I authorized him to go way above the list price, he negotiated as if it was his own money he was spending, and made an offer that was substantially lower than what I authorized. There were at least 10 offers on the home, and the sellers agent had made counters to 5 buyers. Because of the competition, I asked him numerous times during the offer process if our offer was really going to be high enough. But he explained his offer-counteroffer strategy to me, it paid off, and we ended up getting the house for 50K under my max price. Just trust Amar, he will not pay a dime extra than he needs to in order to get the home.

After the offer was accepted, his experienced, well-oiled 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. I just kept sending them whatever documents they wanted, and we were ready to sign the closing documents in 3 weeks.

In addition to all this, Amar is responsive on the phone, email, or text, far beyond the call of duty. If there are any questions you might have, as long as he is awake, he is available to talk.

So for anybody who might have questions about Amar, I can tell you this – he is the real deal, and will be super committed to getting the job done for you. Shoot him an email, and then relax, because you will have just made the best decision of your real estate search. There is virtually a near certainty that shortly, you will be the owner of exactly the home you want.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

AMAR is one of the best realtors I have worked with. Right from the beginning, Amar gave us an impression of being more than being just a realtor and was always available when we needed his guidance/help. This was the third house we were buying and he 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. Amar has the uncanny knack of figuring out the seller’s mind and developing relationship with agents to win the offer.

In our case, Amar helped us get our house without getting into a bidding war by constructing an offer within record time. Amar saved around $29K to our bottom line as his direct contribution. Amar is very responsive and can be reached at almost any time.

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.

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.

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…..

Just awesome! Enthusiastic, friendly, expert, go-getter, responsive, passionate, and a clear vision – the first few words that come to my mind as I’m writing my review for Amar.

For a first time home buyer and someone that worries about things even when there is nothing to worry about, my mind was always at ease working with Amar. Any questions I had were answered in a matter of minutes. I got my dream home in just one month’s time after I started working with Amar. Honestly, in the One month working with Amar to find the perfect place for me I never waited any longer than 5 minutes for a response to an email or a phone call, it’s bizarre really! No where do you find that level of clients service these days. You literally feel like you are the only person he is working with to help find a home. If you use Amar and his team you will not be disappointed, actually, you will likely feel more at ease knowing that he is working for you. The whole team has a level of professionalism that is unparalleled. Amar’s logo E = MC² is a true representation of Amar’s service.

Amar’s key strengths are developing relationships with agents, sure-fire negotiations, and right guidance throughout the home buying process which is priceless. In our collaboration process by going beyond call of duty Amar saved us over 14K PLUS 9K below List price instead of over bidding. Amar staying on TOP of EVERY activity in the entire process to make sure end goal is accomplished as smooth as possible.

I can say one word that says everything about Amar’s service !! Excellente !!! Mucho Gracias !!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

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.

Amar, it was truly a great experience buying my first home with you. You have been most helpful through out the process. Being a first time home buyer in this market, it was essential for me to understand the various nuances at various steps in the process and you have been the ultimate guide for me all along. From the moment we decided to buy a home just a couple of days before meeting you till the day we got the keys to our current home, the process was so quick that we were living in our new home before we even realized. Everything happened with in 6 weeks of meeting you.

Your expertise in finding us the right home, negotiating the right deal (savings over 40K in price, upgrades, closing cost), and helping us with a great loan program was exceptional. We feel that you are best agent when it comes to helping first time buyers. Your insights in all the areas helped us a great deal

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.

Amar was excellent at guiding us throughout the process and making our first time home buying process a pleasant experience. He is patient and listened to all our needs. He personally visited the property to evaluate its pros and cons and discussed them with us before making the offer and tried to get us the best deal by all possible means.

Amar had the right strategy in winning the property for 15K less than the authorized price under multiple offer scenarios. He also negotiated to extend the escrow by moving the closing date further to save $$$ and recovered about 3K from lender/seller to help cover closing costs.

Amar was on top of every activity and was personally engaged during each step including appraisal, loan, escrow and closing. Bottom line, with his flawless execution, I felt confident with Amar on our side during this entire process and sincerely appreciate his close collaboration in helping us get our dream Home.

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.

Amar,

Thank you so much for being such a great friend and the best and ultimate real estate agent for me and my family. You went out of your way to get us this Home, shows that rather than being in it for the money, you were more interested in our well being, rather than making your own profit – we are eternally grateful to you.
Thanks to you, we have moved from a rented accommodation, where the rent kept going higher and higher, to our own dream Home. We absolutely love the Home you made a reality for us, in the beautiful city of Dublin, in a very good school district, with a lot of like minded neighbours, family and friends living around us!
Amar negotiated from the Builder and lender over 29K [Upgrades: 10K, Price: 8K, Loan closing: 7K, Appliances: 4K] by going above and beyond and guidance throughout the Home buying process is priceless.
I can only stress Amar’s passion, negotiations, and guidance to help clients is hard to match by Realtors. Amar’s strong execution abilities, the breadth of his real estate domain expertise makes him an invaluable asset to any Buyer/Seller. Thanks so much for everything Amar!

Best Regards,

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

After my Home buying experience with Amar last month, I just can say, Amar is THE BEST Realtor in the Bay area. Amar, as a Realtor always go above and beyond to provide the exceptional service and great value for his clients . In this current market, it is really tough to deal with the seller’s agent as they are getting multiple offers. However, we are able to find our dream home last month because of Amar’s hard work and amazing execution. I would like to share my home buying experience with Amar. Amar provided us the best service anyone ever expect from a Realtor.

· Amar showed us a really nice Home in our preferred zip code.
Once we all on-board and offered our comfortable amount for that house, he immediately started working on it.
Amar almost gave all his valuable time in negotiating the deal with the seller’s agent. In that process, he established a good rapport with the seller agent and understood the seller motivations and situations for selling home.
Amar put together offer package and worked closely with listing agent to WIN the deal before offer deadline without competition and price bidding war. As results, we got very good deal. He is extremely good at analysing the situation, winning the deal with right strategy, and perfect execution.
Amar personally involved in all the areas of our home buying process(Appraisal, Loan, Inspections, Escrow, Insurance, and closing). He has great team of people to make home buying process absolutely stress free.
Amar co-ordinated with the WF lender who did our pre-approval and loan closing providing us a really good interest rate.On the top of everything, Amar helped us to recover $9,857 towards closing.

The entire home buying process starting from the beginning to end went so smooth with peace of mind because of Amar’s hard work, dedication and capability. We are 2nd time Home buyers and lot of real estate knowledge, Amar and team makes a BIG diffidence in journey of Home buying process. Thank you so much Amar for all your contributions in our Home buying process.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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,

We were looking for a good investment property and Amar understood our requirements perfectly. He said he would keep that in mind and let us know when he finds the right value property. One fine day, Amar called us on May 4th and told us of the great investment property listed for $630K. We told him that we cannot pay beyond $650K. He came in person to our house on May 5th to let us know that we got the house. We were really surprised because there was no back-and-forth stressful negotiation that usually happens during home buying process. Then Amar gave us the real shock when he told us of the house price. He negotiated the home for $625K even though there were multiple offers up to $650K. I do not know how he did it in this over bidding market. Amar negotiation skills are excellent and very creative. His winning strategy was perfect and it really worked out for us.

Amar was personally involved as if he is buying house for himself. He was personally involved in all the areas including appraisal, loan, property inspections, insurance, escrow and closing. The entire team – real estate agent, loan officer, insurance agent, property inspector, and escrow agent came together and we closed the escrow in record 20 days. That was another shocker in this market. We had heard of months to close the escrow. During escrow process, he saved us another $7,272. In total, Amar saved us around $32K.The entire process was so smooth, efficient and fast. We were the owners of the house in 20 days.

All this happened because of:

1. Excellent deal negotiation skills in today’s hot market

2. His continuous guidance throughout the home buying experience

3. His personal involvement in all aspects of the home buying

4. His valuable contacts and network of people and team

5. Staying on top of every activity in the entire process until the escrow is closed.

We had an excellent experience with Amar as our buying agent. I would highly recommend Amar for home buying and that would save lot of time, money, stress for a prospective home buyer.

THANK YOU Amar for being there in EVERY step of my Home buying process.  I have no words to express your efforts, dedication, and commitment to fulfil my challenging requirements.

Once I met Amar to discuss about my home situation. Right after the discussion, I know he is the person can do the job right. Before meeting Amar, I also talk to couple of agents. I have 24 days to move out of the home and looking in great school district with limited budget.

Amar understood our situation and started focusing on us to get single family home in Fremont. Once we all liked the home and everyone on-board, Amar’s through well-connected network, sure-fire negotiation, promptness in action, and right judgment at the right moment, our offer accepted. This happens not through magic, but creative thinking, personnel touch with agents, and strategy. Amar’s credibility, reputation, and Keller Williams Realty (No: 1 company in US) does matters in big picture.

YES! Amar closed the home less than $9,950 than list price in multiple offers situation and there are offers higher than the list price. How it’s possible in the crazy market. The way Amar packaged our offer, and presentation of the offer process made a big difference. I met with seller and listing agent in person, both are very tough people to deal.  I always wonder how Amar convinced listing agent and seller to convince to go with offer. What I liked about Amar is the value, expertise, and professionalism. The level of depth he personally involves in every stage of the transaction is amazing.

Most importantly, execution our offer terms in a professional and timely manner gave me the peace of mind in the process. I am so impressed with negotiations and the right guidance; I have referred 2 people before closing my transaction.
Amar on top of loan and escrow process to close in less than 18 days.  In the whole process, Amar saved us $28,379.  Finding the right home, winning the offer in multiple offers situation below list price, saving lot of money, and closing in less than 24 days itself speak volumes about Amar’s professionalism. Amar have shown me a great example of what professional agent means, and totally changed my impression about agent. From the offer to the last day of moving in, he made me feel everything is taken care.

It has been a great experience. If you read all the way down to here, you probably know what I am going to say. Yes, you are right, I highly recommend Amar no matter you are selling or buying a house, because his professionalism and passion will not change.

Amar is a true meaning of his mission: E = MC²

E:  Excellency in Service

M:  My expertise in meeting Clients Goals

C:  Clients for a Lifetime

C:  Creativity to achieve Exceptional Results

“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!

Asheesh Asthana  Sony Mohapatra, Senior Test Engineer at LinkedIN

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,

Mahesh Machineni  Mahesh Machineni, Tech Leader at Cisco

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).

I had been looking for an excellent buyer agent for a while. I am very particular because I have heard very stressful buying experience from my friends and families. I had been asking reference from others and carefully heard the process that they had gone through. Finally, I decided to go with Amar to represent me and I am so glad that I made an excellent choice.
Amar is very patient with the buyer and always help the buyers to fully consider all other similar options in the market before making an offer. When we decided to make an offer, Amar followed up with the seller agent proactively in a very professional way. Amar able to win the deal in hot market in multiple offers situation at list price with his proven strategy and attitude in Mission San Jose district. The whole offer and counter offer process was very transparent to us. My wife and I clearly know the whole process. Because Amar did a lot of research and background work, the decision that I had to make is pretty straight forward which is very important to me considering my day time job is already very demanding.
Amar is so hands-on and followed up every single detail from Loan, Inspection, Escrow…etc. It really removed tons of stress from us. More importantly, considering the seller had moved out of the country, the closing process was quite challenging from time to time due to remote communication. Amar shielded all of the seller side challenges from me. In the hot market like the current one, it could be quite stressful on the buyer side for any possible bump during the close while the deposit is locked in the escrow. However, my wife and I were quite comfortable because Amar had successfully worked with the seller during the offer process and we are very confident that Amar can handle the close professionally. The closing process is so smooth and Amar saved over 5K towards closing.
My wife and I had a great buying experience. We are happy and proud to share the facts with my family and friends. We love to work with Amar again if we are back in the market later.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

“Amar is very friendly Realtor and has been a great help throughout the home buying process. We looked at many homes in several areas in the bay area. Amar was always available to see every house, many times at very short notices. He provided his honest opinion on each home. His eyes noticed minute details that we have missed/not noticed and guided all the important things buyers should be aware in the home buying process. Amar diligently documented out feedback on every house to find the pattern of likes and dislikes which helped us narrow down our home search.

Amar is a great negotiator. With his commendable negotiation skills, Amar able to get the home (Cupertino) 10K below in multiple offers situation and saved us over 16K in the home buying process. With his help we ended up buying a beautiful home with everything that we wanted in it and at a reasonable price. Thanks Amar. I highly recommend Amar anyone for Real Estate needs!”

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.

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.

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 Suresh Koti, Principal Systems Engineer/Lead

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.

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,

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.

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,

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.

Vamsi Mareddy Vamsi Mareddy, Experienced Infrastructure/Web Engineer

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.

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 !!!

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!!!

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….

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!!

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!

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!

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..

Buying a home can be a long painful process or it can be a pleasant experience. It all depends on who your real estate agent is. We had a great home buying experience and we attribute that to Amar.

We hired Amar as our agent in August 2011 and he never failed us. He collected our input and showed houses that suited our requirements. Amar gathered complete information on each house he showed and provided his honest input whether to go with or not. He never forced us to give a quick offer and always asked us to think twice, thrice before presenting an offer.

Once we found the house that we like, Amar used his keen negotiation skills and got us the house at a lower price than many competing offers. During the entire closing process he is on his heels and been in constant contact with the sellers agent, loan agent and pushed all of them to get to the closing quickly and smoothly.

Amar also have extensive contacts with loan agents, contractors and insurance agents and he used them effectively at every stage of our home buying process. With his negotiation tactics Amar saved quite a bit of time and money on various repair works we have done to our new house.

I have never seen an agent who does so much extra service to make their clients home buying experience happy and comfortable. I am very happy to use his services again and recommend him highly to anyone.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Once we found the right property, his expertise was invaluable in negotiating the contract and closing escrow. As our Agent, Amar helped us to buy our current home in a competitive multiple offer situations.

As first time home buyers, we were learning as we go and Amar was a terrific guide, answering all of our questions and steering us away from potential problems. Our buying experience could not have been better”

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
