Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Niles, Fremont, CA.
It is my pleasure to write a recommendation for Ali.
House hunt was frustrating experience and after trying three different realtors I almost gave up on house search. Luckily, I met Ali in one of the open houses he organized and I was impressed by his attitude and personality the first day I met him. His dynamic nature, enthusiasm and proactive attitude made me believe that I am in safe hands and he didn't disappoint me. Working with different realtors, I was in house search for 10 months and I also placed offers to buy a house for almost 7 to 8 houses and lost all of them with a very small margin. I won my first house in few days after meeting Ali. As a matter of fact, he gave me good news in 2 hours after I placed the offer. To win the house he met with seller and their agent personally and convinced them to accept my offer. There were many hassles in my case but Ali and his team sorted out all the issues including my mortgage and I did not felt any pain while buying the house. He is very punctual and fulfills all the promises he commits.
I am very pleased that I met Ali and believed in him. I recommend Ali to anybody who is looking to buy a home. I am sure he will not disappoint you.
Three things we truly appreciated about him : patience, honesty and responsiveness. No matter what time of day, he always took the time to hear us out with any questions we had on any property. As first time home owners, we never felt pushed or compelled to close a deal. He helped us make informed decision on our final deal. And he even went the extra mile to guide us through with our extreme renovations plans, long after we had closed the deal.
Ali Qureshi is a great realtor. He helped us purchase our first house in Dublin. From the first meeting to the end he was always patient with our questions and made sure we were completely satisfied with the property we were buying. He did not pressure us or use any bait and switch tactics that many sales people use. His market analysis along with online research helped us get a great deal.
I recommend Ali to anyone who is looking to buy a property., Thank you Ali

Thank You Umair, you are very kind. It was a great pleasure working with you. I wish you all the best.
We needed to find a house quickly as we recently relocated from New York. Ali tirelessly worked with us to help us find a perfect home. He responded quickly to our calls and texts. We were greatly thankful for his local knowledge and advice since we were first-time home buyers.

Thank You Shajee for the kind words. It was a great pleasure working with you and your family. I wish you all the best.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Danville, CA.
After spending few months going solo during our home buying process, I found Ali on Trulia voices forum, answering questions from buyers like me. His honest responses to buyers, extensive knowledge and his stellar recommendations on Trulia prompted me to contact him. He was very prompt with the response and scheduled a meeting with me and my wife. And after that the whole complex, roller coaster home buying experience became pretty easy for us.
Ali took time to understand all our requirements inside out. He was there to help us understand nuances of real estate. After spending whole weekend with us to understand our requirements, to walk us through entire process on paper to eliminate any surprises later on, he set us up with his automated listing notification to get us all the listings immediately. We went to numerous open homes and he always accompanied us. Always answering all our questions, providing useful insights and guiding us. His knowledge about real estate in general and Tri-Valley area is second to none. I must have asked him zillion questions, what-if scenarios and he answered all of them honestly. He never pressured us. As we shortlisted a list of 2-3 houses that we had liked, he helped us identify the one that we actually loved and once we decided to make an offer, he acted on it immediately and started the wheels spinning. He negotiated well on our behalf, hooked us up with great loan agent. Helped us put a good contract and was always on top of all the requirements needed to close the escrow as smoothly as possible. We were able to close the escrow within 3-4 weeks. Even after the close of escrow, he was there to help us even after we moved into our new place.
I did recommend Ali to my friends and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. If you want an honest, patient, hardworking, responsive and knowledgeable agent who will go extra mile to satisfy his clients, you should call Ali.

Thank You Raj. It was great working with you and Shruti. I hope you guys are enjoying your new home :)
Ali Qureshi is a tremendous realtor. Met him at a social event and got along right away. As a first time buyer, I was very nervous buying the property but Ali put me at ease. I am very happy with his services, professional attitude and expertise in the real estate industry. Highly recommend him to any prospective buyers out there in California!
Showed home in 2014 in Alvarado, Union City, CA 94587.
I wish I could rate Mr. Ali a 5 star and agree to most of the comments below..But I can't lie.
I will be honest our beginning with Mr. Ali was on similar notes. He was knowledgeable, professional and felt like a family however he couldn't have this mask for long.
After almost 2 months of home search with Mr. Ali ( In which He was hardly available and If he was only At his own convenience) Mr. Ali comes with following lame and highly unprofessional behavior.
He was Arrogant, Rude and most Inconsiderate realtor we ever came across.
Let me pen down the incidents which explains the above:
In the last property which Mr. Ali showed us in his extremely busy schedule, here's what Mr. Ali comes up with:
Mr. Ali claims to be a realtor who have sold houses worth Millions and a deal like ours (pre-approved to less than half a million) is of no value to him. Still he was doing us a huge favor by being our realtor. This not only shows Mr. Ali's arrogance towards his clients but also puts him under question of discriminating his clients on their financial status...( No wonder why we were always last on his priority list and we had to keep requesting him to show properties.)
On me being polite with Mr. Ali and trying to explain him our timing preference to see the properties Mr. Ali comments where "I don't Care what time you work...I had appointments and I can't be available for you. You should be thankful that I came in the evening and showed you the property. (Note: Evening was Mr. Ali's convenience and NOT ours).
Forget professionalism, I wish Mr. Ali had just shown a little more mannerism while talking to a woman.
There where number of incidents which showed lack of professionalism from Mr. Ali's side out of which one was not giving us the right information about the interest rate on one of the loan category and then just simply saying "Oh I missed telling you that".
Mr. Ali's this miss would have landed us into big trouble.
For all home buyers, If you are pre-approved for a Big Fat chunk of money, I am sure Mr. Ali would go Head over Heels for you.
For the rest it's a waste of your valuable time.
Ali helped us buy our investment home. He is a true professional, kind and sincere in his work.
He sat with us to understand our requirement, budget and walked us through the process and the strategy. He has amazing knowledge about the real estate market in the bay area. He was extremely patient with us, even when we had dump questions and went above and beyond in helping us make the right decision. We are very glad that we had him as the agent. We have no second thought in doing business with him future or referring him to anyone.
Ali helped us with rental analysis, comps, property details, cash flow analysis and many more things which an agent really doesn't have to do. He helped negotiate the selling price with the builder and got us a great deal. We had worries about renting the house. Ali placed ads for us in Trulia, Craigslist etc., showed the house to enquirers, processed applications, did income and employment verification and the final contract within a week of closing the escrow. He also helped find and negotiate with several contractors for doing the backyard work which I doubt any agent will do.
Ali is a one-of-a-kind Realtor anyone can count on and we whole heartedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their first home or second home or invest home or manage their property. I wish him all the success and prosperity in his business. May God bless him abundantly!
We had Ali as our agent to buy our second home which we are renting out. Ali has been knowledgeable and guided us with such professionalism that we had a very smooth process overall.
Ali understood our needs and purpose of buying the home.
Ali has a thorough knowledge of house marketing in bay area. We were guided with such proficiency that we were are to make good decisions.
Ali was never pushy and would attend to our concerns anytime we reached out. He provided all the needed information for making a decision to buy a home. This includes property details, rental analysis, providing comps, location details and other other related information.
Ali understood our budget and shrived to keep to the same. He worked with the builders to get us a good quote. With all details handy with us, it wasn't hard to make a good decision. And we placed an offer for the home we wanted and fitted our needs in just a month. By the end of the second month we were second home owners.
One of the main requirement and concern we had was that we should be able to rent the house as soon as possible. Ali even took up that task. He placed adds in Zillow, Trulia, craigslist and other needed areas and started showing the house for rental tenants. We did not have to worry about anything. Ali shortlisted future tenants and did all verification needed. Again, i need to applaud Ali's knowledge of the area as he priced the rent perfectly that we got some very good tenants. Our house will be rented in 2 weeks from the day we got the keys.
Ali even worked with contractors to get our backyard done on time. We live in Fremont and the rental investment home we bought was at Mountain House. We had to visit the property only when really needed and Ali took care of the rest.
Ali is an agent that takes the stress off you during the process, guides you with his knowledge and expertise, and works on it as if it was his home. We were astonished alot of times with the minor details that were taken care that we didn't think about. One thing i know for sure is that whether its to buy another home, sell existing home or need some sort of property management service Ali would be my Go for sure person. He is the best ( I have experience with other agents as this is my second home) and i would strongly recommend him.
Ali helped me find my first property in Dublin, CA. He is well informed of the local markets and helped us through our decision making process. Furthermore, he and his team worked in a extremely consultative and pressure free way with me to ease me into the transaction. I highly recommend him!
