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! Less ... More

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 Completing 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. Less ... More

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 seller. Amar?s negotiations skills helped me to get a very great price 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. He 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. Less ... More

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 Less ... More

It is with great pleasure we share our recent home buying experience. We came across Amar?s profile on the internet and were so impressed by all the positive reviews that we decided to have him as our realtor. And based on the success we have had with Amar, we are very happy to add our review to this every growing list of positive reviews. It is due to Amar?s hard work and guidance that we were able to buy a home in one of the most sought after residential areas in the bay area despite the very hot seller market. Not only did Amar get us our dream home, he managed to get this in record time - in less than a month. We are thrilled that the very first house we decided to make an offer on was the one that we ended up buying. Even though there were thirty or more offers on the house, Amar deftly navigated through the offer, counter offer and negotiation processes with skills I have not seen in any other realtor. Amar brought a vast amount of experience to the home buying process. He combined a data driven approach with a methodical assessment of the specific property to come up with a rock solid strategy. In addition, he drew on his unique negotiation skills to move the process over the finish line. As buyers, we did not have to do much since Amar handled every aspect of the process. Whenever we hit an issue (or at least that is what we thought), Amar would very calmly solve that to our utmost satisfaction. And finally, Amar is a very good person at heart. He takes it upon himself to keep the buyer?s interests at the top of his list. He is always available to answer questions and calm frayed nerves. Whenever we had a question or concern, Amar would get back immediately with ?I?m on it?, and resolved it very quickly. In summary, if there is one word that can describe Amar, that would have to be AMAZING. We would highly recommend him for a buyer?s agent any day. Thanks Amar for all your help and for making our home buying process such an enjoyable one. Less ... More

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. Less ... More

Amar was recommended to us by another friend. Amar is supported by a very good team. Amar did not personally show us houses but came into the picture at the most critical point - negotiation. There were 25 offers on our house and ours was in the top 4-5. Amar managed to win the bid for us just when we thought we didn't stand a chance. From the acceptance of the offer to the close of escrow we were well supported by him and his team who were on top of things all the time. They were very responsive to emails and phone calls.Because we had a very short escrow (15 days), we had few obstacles along the way. Amar guided us during this time and was a calming balm to our panicked selves. Overall we had a very good experience and would definitely recommend Amar to people who are trying to buy a home.

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 a peace of mind to seller, and this is the key difference. Once your offer gets accepted, and 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. Less ... More

Our Home buying experience with Amar and his team was truly immeasurable. From day 1, since the initial meeting the service provided was exceptional. 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. It was overall an amazing experience to have worked with Amar and his team who provided guidance throughout the entire process.

"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. " Less ... More

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. Amar 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." Less ... More

This is undeniably a sellers market. Many of our friends told us that they had put in 10 or more offers before they finally got a house. Moreover, we were first time home buyers with very little experience. Given this, it is nothing short of amazing that we landed a house of our dreams within such a short time. We primarily attribute this to Amar. To describe Amar's contribution and to put it into perspective we will describe our home buying experience below. We started testing the waters by going to open houses and talking to the listing agents. We found one agent at an open house and decided to work with that person. We even put in an offer on a house that we liked. However, we were not very happy with the whole process, primarily because this agent is not specialized in the Cupertino/Saratoga/West San Jose areas we were interested in. Therefore, we decided to find another agent. At this point, Amar's profile caught our eye. We read his reviews and one thing really stood out. He was a very very successful buying agent. We thought that if he is able to succeed in such a tough market and get so many good reviews from buyers, we should at least interview him. At the interview we explained what we wanted and Amar explained his working style. Basically, he lets you do your own research and figure out potentially interesting houses. Once you have looked at them, he independently goes to look at the house on his own and only after that he exchanges notes with you. We found this to be a very efficient use of our time. It was clear that Amar understood our requirements because we broadly agreed on the merits or demerits of the houses that we looked at. However, in many cases he also added additional insights which we had overlooked. Once we settled on a house, Amar quickly worked with us to put together an offer. This is where his expertise, experience, and above all his positive attitude are invaluable. We talked and did some comparative market analysis and came up with an offer which we felt was pretty competitive. But what we realized is that an offer is not just about the price, but the entire package. Amar helped us tailor the package, write a pertinent personal letter to the seller, and patiently explained to us the entire process and all the paperwork. Moreover, he personally went to present the offer and even asked us to join him when he presented the offer. This is somewhat unusual, but we learned later that little touches like this are what make an offer stand out. Amar very quickly established a personal rapport with the selling agent and also communicated to us constantly. This ensured that we received a counter offer even though ours was the 4th highest out of the 8 offers. This was a multiple counter-offer and the price quoted was higher than our budget. So we more or less gave up hope. However, Amar diligently worked with the seller agent behind the scenes and convinced us to put a counter-offer at a significantly lower price than what the seller was asking. Throughout the day Amar was constantly communicating and working with the sellers agent to point out the unique features of our offer. The seller and the sellers agent had some questions and Amar promptly and patiently answered them. Finally, we were thrilled when the seller accepted our counter-offer. After the offer closed, Amar and his team worked very efficiently to close the deal. Even though there were mountains of paperwork and we had tons of questions, Amar was always available to answer them. To summarize, Amar is the best buying agent you can work with. Period. We can say this not only because of our positive experience with him, but also because we were able to compare his working style with that of our previous agent. In this tough market you obviously want to work with the best, and you cannot go wrong with Amar. We are more than happy to answer any questions or provide additional feedback about working with Amar. We have already recommended him to a few of our friends who are thinking about buying a house.

Manoj M President, Opera Mediaworks Amar came highly recommended and I am glad to say that he surpassed our expectations during the house buying process. He has a lot of experience and guided us patiently through the process. His additional insights were very useful in helping us buy the right house. Amar and his A+ team helps guide you through the process of not just buying the house but also helps with everything else you need to have in place during the process. He was able to help us with closing even though one of us was traveling and without adding any additional time in the closing process. Amar is very polite, patient and professional realtor, he is able to provided you the focused attention you need during the buying process. He exceeds the expectation with his 24x7, 7 days a week availability which is very rare to find with any other agent.

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 every thing 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! Less ... More

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! Less ... More

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. Less ...

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 explained us about all the steps and initiated our pre-approval. None of our friends 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.

For the first time home buyers, this buying experience is very daunting and unnerving in addition to, of course, the excitement of moving to one?s own place. In our case, as we were searching for home for the last 6 months, home buying experience was not only daunting but also highly frustrating. This was due to the agent who was helping us. We almost gave up our dream of moving to our own house. But then my wife, daughter and I decided to give another try, this time with Amar as our agent. Thanks to Amar, within two weeks, we closed a deal successfully at a price we felt comfortable. Amar used his excellent knowledge, contacts and skills to guide us though appraisal, loan, escrow process and closing. He negotiated the best deals on home purchase price with great execution without bidding war with right strategy. Amar also saved us substantial amount on closing costs and subsequent home related activities. I will definitely recommend Amar to anyone in the Bay area looking to purchase a home.

Now a day?s, many Listing agents to do double sides (both buyer side 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. It?s obviously compromise of ethics on buyer side or seller side or both sides. Think logically 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.

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,.

He has an amazing team who helped us at many different levels from helping us in making a decision to buy a home to closing the loan process.His team made us feel that home buying process is a team effort and also they made us understand the importance of trust between the agent/team and the buyer. Amar gave us the space that we need while making a decision in home buying and at the same time pointed to us all the nuances that home buyer should consider while making the decision. I felt that Amar is exceptional in negotiating and he is a person with clear thoughts and unwavering perseverance to deal with the negotiations and to compete with others in this competitive market. We highly recommend Amar and we thank him for his services. Less ... More

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!!!!l Less ... More

This is undeniably a sellers market. Many of our friends told us that they had put in 10 or more offers before they finally got a house. Moreover, we were first time home buyers with very little experience. Given this, it is nothing short of amazing that we landed a house of our dreams within such a short time. We primarily attribute this to Amar. To describe Amar's contribution and to put it into perspective we will describe our home buying experience below. We started testing the waters by going to open houses and talking to the listing agents. We found one agent at an open house and decided to work with that person. We even put in an offer on a house that we liked. However, we were not very happy with the whole process, primarily because this agent is not specialized in the Cupertino/Saratoga/West San Jose areas we were interested in. Therefore, we decided to find another agent. At this point, Amar's profile caught our eye. We read his reviews and one thing really stood out. He was a very very successful buying agent. We thought that if he is able to succeed in such a tough market and get so many good reviews from buyers, we should at least interview him. At the interview we explained what we wanted and Amar explained his working style. Basically, he lets you do your own research and figure out potentially interesting houses. Once you have looked at them, he independently goes to look at the house on his own and only after that he exchanges notes with you. We found this to be a very efficient use of our time. It was clear that Amar understood our requirements because we broadly agreed on the merits or demerits of the houses that we looked at. However, in many cases he also added additional insights which we had overlooked. Once we settled on a house, Amar quickly worked with us to put together an offer. This is where his expertise, experience, and above all his positive attitude are invaluable. We talked and did some comparative market analysis and came up with an offer which we felt was pretty competitive. But what we realized is that an offer is not just about the price, but the entire package. Amar helped us tailor the package, write a pertinent personal letter to the seller, and patiently explained to us the entire process and all the paperwork. Moreover, he personally went to present the offer and even asked us to join him when he presented the offer. This is somewhat unusual, but we learned later that little touches like this are what make an offer stand out. Amar very quickly established a personal rapport with the selling agent and also communicated to us constantly. This ensured that we received a counter offer even though ours was the 4th highest out of the 8 offers. This was a multiple counter-offer and the price quoted was higher than our budget. So we more or less gave up hope. However, Amar diligently worked with the seller agent behind the scenes and convinced us to put a counter-offer at a significantly lower price than what the seller was asking. Throughout the day Amar was constantly communicating and working with the sellers agent to point out the unique features of our offer. The seller and the sellers agent had some questions and Amar promptly and patiently answered them. Finally, we were thrilled when the seller accepted our counter-offer. After the offer closed, Amar and his team worked very efficiently to close the deal. Even though there were mountains of paperwork and we had tons of questions, Amar was always available to answer them. To summarize, Amar is the best buying agent you can work with. Period. We can say this not only because of our positive experience with him, but also because we were able to compare his working style with that of our previous agent. In this tough market you obviously want to work with the best, and you cannot go wrong with Amar. We are more than happy to answer any questions or provide additional feedback about working with Amar. We have already recommended him to a few of our friends who are thinking about buying a house.

Amar is able, hardworking and dedicated realtor who is ready to go to any extent to help his clients. He helped us buy our new house which had 7 offers including cash offer of $10K more than ours. Amar gave us an opportunity to witness the offer presentation with the home owner. He is very good at presenting the offer and has great negotiation and convincing skills. We were first time home buyers and Amar and his team worked round the clock to close the deal in 21 days. Team Amar helped us through the whole process and made our home buying experience very pleasant. Less ... More

Recently, when we started looking for homes to buy, we found it is necessary to get the help of a good real estate agent. we looked at the profiles of a number of real estate agents in zillow and also consulted recent home buyers. We even contacted some of them and started receiving lists of homes for sale in south bay area. Apart from the listed price, location and some other details which are already available in various web sites, we could not get any real help. That is when we saw Mr. Amarnath's profile. The large number of homes he sold in the past year and good reviews in various web sites impressed us. We immediately contacted him and the positive approach in his conversation confirmed his superior ability. Further, he started highlighting the advantage and drawbacks of the homes previously selected by us. As per his advice, we have to remove some houses from my favorite list. Later, we realized he is absolutely correct as those houses are not finding buyers even today since they had some hidden problems which only an expert Realtor knows. We think this quality of Amarnath makes him stand apart from other Realtor. Things started rolling fast when Amar and his team entered our home search. He and his team was always happy and ready to show houses for us. Simultaneously, Amar arranged for loan approval at a low rate of interest. Actually, we got many loan offers but this was the lowest rate. Amar's team worked during weekend and late nights to get a quick loan approval. Finally, when decided on our dream home, Amar took no time to visit and make an appraisal of the home and submitted the bid immediately. There was many bidders and some of the bids exceeding ours by as much as 50K. But Amar took no chance and directly talked with the sellers agent and the seller and highlighted superior nature of our offer. Amar convinced them how our offer as whole package better than a mere highest bid. He also brought in his broker into the picture to highlight our case. These are only some of the several strategies used by Amar as a part of his superior execution style which finally enabled us to own our dream home with a lower bid !. Winning the bid under multiple offers is not the only area Amar excelled, afterwords, he guided us on all aspects of the next steps in the process such as escrow and deal closing without any last minute surprises. We realized later that the seller paid many of our fees because of the tactful negotiation by Amar. Meanwhile, his team was able to get us a home insurance at super low premium. We never expected the signing and closing of the escrow will be so smooth and hassle free. All this is because of Amar's dynamic leadership and staying on the top of every activity that a home buying process involves.We could have purchased our dream home long ago, if we met Amar earlier. We appreciate his and his teams ability to help others and so wish them success in all his future endeavors. - Shridhara and Mala *** SOURCE: LinkedIN/AmarAmarnath Realtor Less ... More

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.

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. Less ... More

I have came to know about Amar from my colleague. We were just testing the waters to see if it is really possible for us buy a home in the bay area. But once I started interaction with Amar things changed really fast. I had to get the bank preapproval for the loan. His team had a wonderful banker who made it look easy. Since we were not sure about what we really looking for, it took some time to decide on first homes to visit. We visited two homes but we didn?t like them. Amar did not push us to into homes even though we took some time going through listings for different areas. We found a perfect home through his listings. Amar made it happen by working around the clock for us. Amar had to make tough negotiations with the seller?s agent competing against other offers and he worked very fast to make sure I would WIN it at the price I wanted. It was the one and only offer we made. He is extremely good winning in multiple offers situation. His track record speaks for itself. We had only few days to close and his team got into action promptly. From the banker to insurance, all of his team were experienced and prompt in providing excellent service. Amar was personally involved in all steps of home buying process including negotiations with the bank for better rates and discounts for our loan. We closed the deal in just three weeks with peace of mind. Amar was nice and really helpful through every stage of the process. He is always informative and has a lot of positive energy. As a first time buyer his knowledge and advices were extremely valuable. I would recommend Amar to anyone and everyone for any real estate needs. Less ... More

I started my home search around 9 months ago and today after a long struggle and putting around 10 offers finally I own a house. This journey could have been much smoother and fun if I would have met "Amarrath" at the starting of it. Nine months ago when I started the house search with my first agent (Not Amar), it looked like driving an uphill without any driving experience. Experience with my first agent was a nightmare, there was a very little information that my first agent would have about the properties that I would like to see, no grip or very little grip on the market, no team, just standalone. I put continuously 9 unsuccessful offers with him but never got any of them and things went beyond the limit when in a house we put 700K and the house was finally sold in 685K but we did not the house and the comments about my old agent from the listing agent was ?where did you got this agent?, That point I understood the importance of real estate agent. It?s not the highest bid you put in market, it?s not highest credit score, but it is the strong real estate agent that gets you the deal, and with my experience I can tell that Amar is THE ONE, who can get you anything you like. My journey started with Amar after getting introduced through one of my friend and he told lot of good things about Amar, but with my experience with my previous agent was not that comfortable, so did not wanted to jump so did a lot of study on looking at Amar?s LinkedIn profile which was having lot of +ve reviews, so decided to go with him, today sitting in my new house, I feel very fortunate that I met Amar. The 1st offer that was put through AMAR was readily accepted and within 2 weeks AMAR closed the deal, it gave me an extreme piece of mind and a respect and a tremendous confidence for the man (AMAR) and his team. I referred one of my friends to AMAR and there also Amar proved that he is the best, there also his first offer was accepted. Amar has connections, respect in market and a team which will get you the house with best price. He has a team starting from loan officer to the closing escrow connections which makes your transaction flawless. I can say a lot about Amar?s capabilities but here is a list which tells how he helped me: 1. The Best deal negotiation by ALL possible means 2. Perfect execution of the process. 3. Winning property in hot market with right strategy. 4. Personally involved in ALL areas (Appraisal, Loan, Escrow process, and closing) 5. Co-ordination and engagement with WFC and Escrow to ensure loan closing 6. Collaboration in informed decision making 7. Entire process guidance throughout Home BUYING PROCESS. 8. Staying on TOP of EVERY activity in the entire process to make sure end goal is accomplished as smooth as possible. I strongly recommend Amar for any real estate needs." Less ... More

Amar was very bad at many things. 1. They did not tell us that many things renovated in the house are cheap stuff. And that is the reason we have an agent so that they point out such things when they tour the house. 2. When I said I liked a house and asked how much I should put an offer for, I was told a price 40k over what I actually put an offer for. 3. He is too bossy. Talks a lot and never listens to what we have to say. Note: Just dont go by what he speaks. He is just a talkative person and not knowledgable person. Right now, if any of my friends ask me tips about home buying, the first thing I tell them is - 'Please dont pick Amar as your realtor' Less ... More

We began our home search in September 2013 with a Realtor from a reputed company in the Bay Area. Being first time home buyers, we were completely unaware of the many nuances and highly competitive nature of the real estate market. Our search can only be described as ?trying to find a needle in a haystack?. We put in our first offer in Nov 2013 on a home (in the same community that we were renting). We lost the home by a small margin and took it very hard. We then signed on with a new agent in Jan 2014, from another reputed company. The experience was a TOTAL DISASTER. We eventually let him go in Feb 2014. Our lease was expiring in June 2014 and we were in no frame of mind to renew. At this point, through a reference from a Mortgage Banker at Wells Fargo, (Gezal Nawabi, who deserves a special mention) 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 finally 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. Every week Amar and Alicia would filter listings that would suit our requirements and email them to us. Over the next several weekends, we would meet with the friendly, warm and selfless Alicia Sandoval and pick specific Open Houses to visit. On several occasions, she has met us on weekdays, late evenings without once complaining and many times forgoing her own lunch to show us homes in the afternoons. In the process, we learnt so much from them about the Real Estate Market. We made our first offer on a home in the affluent Mission district (much against Amar?s wishes...he knew it was not the right home for us). Amar was right as our offer did not even make it to the Top 10!! After several more Open House visits, we finally came across (what we thought) was our dream home in the Irvington school district. We fell in love with the home and 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 and we were touched. It was a wonderful feeling to know that they truly cared about getting us a home and it was not just a Business for them. Unfortunately, (in hindsight, we can now safely say it was good), for reasons beyond our control, we lost the home by the smallest of margins. To be honest, it hurt all of us very badly because of all the effort that went into it. It took all of us many weeks to recover. Amar and Alicia, who had now become family to us, would call and email us every day to console and give us hope. Which again proved to us that they were more than just Real Estate Agent.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?. And that again proved to be true. In May 2014, just weeks before our lease expired, a beautiful home came up in the same Irvington community where we had lost the previous bid. This home was just perfect for us. 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 favourably 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, The fantastic Wells Fargo Banker- Gezal Nawabi, ensured we closed Escrow in a record 21 days. All other paperwork and documentation was completed to perfection by this wonderful team. We are overwhelmed and filled with gratitude to Amar and his team. To every person out there looking for a home, this is THE ONLY TEAM you should work with. Samanyu,Sheila & Sathya Less ... More

Amar Amarnath is an excellent agent and has immense knowledge and experience in the real estate. He is one of the top 5 agents of Keller Williams Realty (Over 100,000 agents) which speaks volumes about the service you can expect from him. Amar understands what it takes in getting the client their dream home by working according to clients requirements, tastes and preferences. He is not just a great agent but a good human being with strong ethical values. Amar has a special knack of presenting the offer in the best possible way and goes an extra mile to get the offer picked up through various methods using his PR skills which I don't think any other agent does. This I say is the most important factor which makes things happen for you even in the Sellers' market. He is very prompt in responding to the calls/emails and is accessible even during the off hours if need be. We personally have talked to him many times after 9 PM as there was a need to discuss some important things before presenting the offer. Amar does a comprehensive study of the houses in the neighborhood sold in the past 3 months and does a thorough comparisons to evaluate the offer price for the home and thus does 'not overprice the home than it is valuation. He emails you the reports and the comparative study of the homes sold so that we also know prevailing market rates which helps you to decide the actual market value of the home and the price to offer. My recommendation to all the home buyers out there is that you will be lucky if Amar agrees to represent you. Trust him completely, relax and enjoy the ride that will be a GREAT home buying experience.Most importantly, the way Amar handled the whole buying process by going above and beyond is one of the greatest memory forever.He was always honest and gave great advice,We got our dream home within a short span of time with the help of AMAR. We can describe our experience with Amar in single word ?Superb!? Amar?s logo E = MC² is a true representation of his service. Right House+Right Price+Right Time= AMAR. Less ... More

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." Less ... More

Thank You Amar! We started the home buying process in early March and had no idea how to enter the market and where to start. While looking over Redfin and Zillow sites for the open houses, the first step was to get pre-Approval from bank and during this process, was introduced to Amar for our real estate needs. Since very first day, when we met Amar, he had been a great support and a guide throughout the process until closure; even after closure he is guiding us towards post-purchase activities. Amar has a great team with him taking care of each and every step that an individual comes across towards home purchasing process. He always took an extra mile whether it was looking for suitable properties, locations, community and all other key aspects that buyers need to look for. He spent hours of effort with us and kept patience while we were looking many open houses and were bugging him during late evening hours or weekend. He was always smiling and supportive helping with full attention. In this seller-driven competitive market, he takes extra effort and initiatives to prepare offer letter with care, keeping in mind the market conditions and makes the offer more convincing. Amar's expertise in real estate was very close to fair value of the property and helped us negotiating to get best deal. We highly recommend all the home buyers to consult Amar for their real estate needs, and working with him makes the whole process so easy and relaxed that we can only wish for. We always felt that he is there as a big brother to guide and will take care of all the nuisances of the home buying journey. Thank you Amar for all the help and guidance that you & your team provided towards offer preparation, escrow closure, and other needs (Home Insurance, Warranty etc). You have been a great team to work with and we are very satisfied with the services you provided. Less ... More

A few months ago, I too was reading reviews, and Amar simply seemed too good to be true. After working with him for the past two months, I can tell you this: Amar is the REAL DEAL. Go phone Amar ? right now! 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 house you want. From the day I emailed him to the day the county registered me as the owner of record took only 7 weeks! We found a house that I liked in one weekend of open houses, and he made sure that our first (and only) offer on a house got accepted. I was in a somewhat desperate situation given the extreme sellers market in SF and 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 house, 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 house. How many other agents out there would do what he did? After the offer was accepted, his experienced, well-oiled closing team took over. Everything got taken care of. His team got me a loan at a cutthroat rate, home appraisal, inspection, insurance, and warranty. 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 is any question you might have, as long as he is awake, he is available to talk. This is extremely valuable, given how stressful home buying tends to be. Having your agent around to talk things over with reduces the stress and makes the experience much easier. So the long and short of it is that Amar has a well refined process that gets results. Once you phone him, get ready to stop worrying and de-stress. He has all the answers. Less ... More

In today's crazy market where all houses are going above listing price, it is really tough to get a home of your choice. In such a tough market, it is crucial to have right agent with good contacts. Amar is super-agent. He knows and understands his buyers and their needs very well. We were first time home buyers and were looking for a house in Fremont for over a year and then we met Amar. We had a wonderful experience working with Amar. He put together a very nice well written offer that seller was not able to overlook and our offer was selected without any counter offer, even though our offer was not the highest one. Once our offer was accepted, Amar made sure that he was involved in all processes i.e. appraisal, Loan, Escrow process and made sure that we had all necessary documents in place for closing. Amar worked very closely with the loan officers to make sure that the whole loan process is smooth and easy. He even suggested us with various Loan options. He had very professional and efficient team and always stayed on top of all things. More importantly, he was very proactive and responded back to every email and phone message. He worked really hard and was able to recover few thousand from seller and lender towards our closing cost. He was very instrumental in convincing seller to leave refrigerator, washer and dryer (worth 4k) as a departing gift. We really liked his strategy towards the whole process, he never left anything to chance and he always had solution to all our issues. Amar?s professional and efficient handling of all aspects of the home buying process made it possible for us to buy a house in the Bay Area. I'd definitely recommend Amar's services to anyone looking to buying a home in the Bay Area. I hope you will be able to help lot many other first time home buyers in future with your kind and helpful attitude. Thanks and Regards, Jasvinder Singh Less ... More

Amar is one of the best Realtors out there. When we first met Amar, he explained his approach and value. Amar stood by it the entire time. The very next week we saw a place we liked very much and Amar was happy to take it to the next step. The house we put the offer on, received many offers above ours, and also cash offers. Amar negotiated with seller on why we would be the perfect owners for the place, and sold the sellers on our offer. Amar has a great team who are very helpful as well in every step of the way, making it smooth process. To be honest, because of their efforts this didn?t feel like a first time home purchase at all. It felt so smooth and efficient till the end. The entire process completed within a month. In todays market, it?s not that easy at all to get a Home in such a short time.

I would like to share my Home buying experience about my realtor Amar as first time home buyer. I was referred to Amar by a colleague and it turned out to be really good decision to go with Amar. Amar, it was truly a great experience buying my first home with you. Initially like many others I did market survey by myself to get a feel for it. We didn?t like the layout, surroundings etc. of many new construction houses in Dublin. When we had the opportunity to meet Amar and explain our needs. Amar rightly took care of us and showed the house we were looking and meet our requirements. Amar explained various things to look for and explained the positive aspects of the house. He has the knowledge and expertise to cater to the needs of different buyers. Our buying and finalizing process was very quick as we had clearly in our mind of the house we wanted. We signed a contract in our 2nd meeting with Amar and the builder; we have got our house keys around Christmas time! All along Amar was there to clear any doubts and talk to the builder with various things in the process. Amar helped us save around 15K using his negotiation with the builder. I feel that you are best agent when it comes to helping first time buyers. Your insights in all the areas of the home buying process helped us a great deal. I would definitely refer Amar to my friends and colleagues who are in the market to buy a house. Less ... More

In today's aggressive market, it is really tough to get a home of choice. Open houses are over the weekend and then listing agents are accepting offers on the following Tuesday and then the deal is closed by Wednesday. Buyers have to act really fast. In such a tough market, it is crucial to have an agent who has the right strategy to get your offer accepted. Amar is the best! He knows and understands how to get this done as smoothly as possible. We are not first time home buyers and have lot of requirements and constrains. He constantly consulted with us and also made sure that he understood our needs in a new home. Amar has been key for us to get our home. He made sure that we got the disclosures quickly and then took the time to review them with us. He put together well written offer package and was constantly in touch with the listing agent and make sure that offer accepted without counter offer. Our offer was not highest offer. The seller was touched by receiving deposit before even accepting our offer. The strategy and approach he has taken made a big difference in accepting out offer in today?s market. Once our offer was accepted, Amar made sure that we had all our ducks in the row for closing. He worked very closely with the loan officers as well as the Escrow agents to make sure that the transaction was smooth. He works with a very efficient team and will always stay on top of all things. More importantly, he responds back to every email and phone message ASAP. Most agents follow up with you till closing. Amar made sure that even after we got our keys he addressed our requests for remodeling and saved money in different areas. If we have to do this again...maybe after another few years...without a blink we would be reaching out to Amar. Amar is not only the best agent in the bay area but we are very happy to know him as a friend. I would highly recommend that you work with him for your real estate needs. Thanks Less ... More

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.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank and recommend Amar to all the prospective Home buyers in bay area. I was planning to buy my first house in bay area and I contacted Amar as I knew him through my friends who had already bought houses in bay area with Amar's help. The day the house came into the market, Amar was very active and set up a meeting with seller to see the house the same day. Amar have developed very good rapport with seller and listing agent and presented well written offer even before the scheduled open house thus preventing the bidding war. Appraisal came in well over the offered price. He did an individual assessment of the property and guided us through the complete home buying process. As a result of Amar?s perfect execution and right strategies not only did we get the deal but he also recovered 8k from the seller and lender towards the closing cost. Amar was personally involved in all the areas like?appraisal, loan, escrow and closing, and collaborated diligently and actively with all the participating parties resulting in a 15 day closing.

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 is 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.

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.

"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 J 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?.." Less ... More

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 it. 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. Less ... More

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.

AMAR is absolutely more than a Realtor. If you love a house and want to make it yours, Amar is THE BEST representation that you can ever imagine. He does a thorough analysis and best strategy to win offer. Amar has the uncanny knack of figuring out the seller?s mind and developing relationship with agents. In our case, Amar helped us get our house without getting into a bidding war by constructing a offer within record time. Amar recovered over 5K in closing costs and helped us by referring to an amazing network of providers for everything from mortgage to home warranty. The best thing about Amar is that he is highly responsive and you can reach him almost anytime. He can execute deals within record time largely due to going above and beyond with his hard work and excellent team of network. Amar also helped us get the refrigerator, washer, and dryer as part of the offer, which made the house move-in ready and helped us get started right away. The whole process from open houses to close of escrow was super smooth. Amar definitely exceeded our expectations with unmatched service and VALUE proposition.

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.

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.

"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, to our surprise, he announced us that he actually got the deal for less than 46K which we offered.

"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. Less ... More

We consider ourselves very luck to have found Amar Amarnath to represent us as the Buyer?s Agent. I found Amar on Zillow. His reviews had a consistant theam ? Amar gets you the house you want. "PERIOD?. Moving from the mid-west we had heared that the Bay Area market is a seller?s market. You will bid on many houses, pay more than asking and will finally get a house after a few months of disappointment. Our experience however was very different. We saw 10-15 houses over 3 days. Liked 3 houses. Put them in order of prioriy (so we have backups if we don't get the one we loved). Amar did all the background research on the 3 houses (age, quality of construction, neighbourhood, schools, inspection reports ...). He told us that the 1st house on our list was the best and he will get it for us. Three days later we found that Amar had done his ?magic? and we had the house. He is very good with people and is persistant till he gets what he wants. He has a good network of resources ? from financing the house to insuring the house. These people know Amar well and work at ?Amar? time. Love Amar and his team. In Amar we not only have a Realestate Agent but a friend for life. I will be recommending him to all our friends looking to buying or selling a house. Less ... More

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: ? Advising 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."

We were very fortunate to have Amar as our Agent during our Home search. We were first time home buyers and were new to the whole process. Amar was very knowledgeable and explained everything to us very patiently. We were looking for a long time and couldn?t find anything that we liked, but Amar has been in constant touch with us via emails and phone throughout. He informed us immediately whenever a home was listed for sale that met our requirements and budget. Amar would setup tours of the houses at times that were convenient for us. He was very punctual too. Whenever we decided to checkout a house, he would be already there waiting for us. He showed us many houses with patience and explained the pros and cons of various options in a house. Amar also got us in touch with lenders to understand the loan process better. This process was very helpful to us as we were putting less than 20% down and still wanted to get a conventional loan without PMI. Last but not least he also helped us a great deal in getting a huge credit towards the closing costs. Once again we were very fortunate to find Mr. Amarnath and would highly recommend him as a Realtor. I promise Amar would make your home buying experience a very pleasant one. Less ... More

Amar is the true definition of ?Excellence in Service?. You can only be good at something, if you are genuinely passionate about it and it is obvious to see why Amar does such a great job. His motto of helping his Clients end to end is truly unmatched. He listened to what we were looking for and guided us entire process through many options. When we were looking, Amar helped us select the right houses. In some cases, he pointed out concerns that we overlooked in some of the choices we made. Once we converged on a place, he pursued it very aggressively and got us an amazing deal. He helped us with financing and also negotiated discounts for closing costs for us. Amar is someone who is diligent, savvy, and trustworthy and this is such rare combination to find in any Realtor in bay area. He puts himself in the place of a buyer/seller and that shows in the quality of service and outstanding results he delivers to his clients.

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.

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.

"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."

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. Less ... More

?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.

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 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.

"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 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. Less ... More

** Buying home is a stressful experience. ** Buying home sometime makes you go crazy. ** Buying home requires driving miles and miles for viewing open houses. ** Buying homes requires countless hours of research on internet, talking to friends and colleague. ** Buying home requires insane amount of patience and perseverance. Well if this scares you, then just call Amarnath. We sure are extremely glad that our path crossed and ended up helping us get our dream home. We just had to tell Amar in which neighborhood we wanted the house. After just couple of open houses, he quickly figured out our taste and style The ride was bit bumpy but where's the fun in smooth sailing. Your perseverance alone was the key to avoid the house getting listed in the market. Your negotiation skills are the BEST one could experience and you proved it by the astonishing sale price. Wohooooo!!! Once we went into contract, Amar went into top gear. The post contract period was the simply put AMAZING. He has excellent team. The house closed in less than 14 days, "UNHEARD OFF". I did not even have to look for best rates. The lender he suggested was extraordinary. Amar went and negotiated the rate and also negotiated credits from the bank to take care of all my closing costs. He just hit home run after home run. In summary, Amar's expertise are second to none. I would strongly recommend him. Experience his service and i assure you that you will be writing similar reviews after you close on your dream home.

Helped me buy home
Details of the Recommendation: "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 your patience, confidence and never give-up mentality which really helped in getting this house." Service Category: Real Estate Agent Year first hired: 2011 Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity Source of the original Review Linked-in/Amar Amarnath ----- updated review of another wonderful experience with Amar, Jun 2014 ------- Amar sold my investment property at the price beyond my expectation. The way he presented the property and handled the related issues is awesome. Did not bring up any issues/problems to me to sit and think on it (start to end) which made my selling process very pleasant. He set the list price right based on market condition in that area for the house and sold it for more than list price. Less than a months time after posting the house for sale, it is sold. Based on my experience with Amar, it is no brainer to choose Amar as agent for buying or selling, he always works/tells things for his client's benefit. Anytime I will work with him for all my real estate needs in future. Less ... More
