Sold a home in 2014 in Centerville, Fremont, CA 94536.
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.
Bottom line, the flawless EXECUTION on multiple dimensions what every seller hope to achieve in ideal conditions. Amar is THE BEST Realtor in Bay Area.
As first-time home buyers in the bay area, we were really not sure what to expect about the buying process, but Amar made it easy. Within few weeks of meeting him, we found a property that was perfect for us - a property that already had received multiple offers including cash offers.
I wasn't sure we had a chance, but Amar told me not to worry. We talked through our strategy and he spent that night working up a winning offer he submitted the next morning. Amar is responsive, professional, caring, smart, and has forged great relationships in the industry. He went above and beyond the call of duty to help us.
Amar has incredible knowledge of the local market and has an amazing ability to deal with agents from initial offer to closing. Even if the market was very competitive, he helped us make offers that were in our budget but still competitive.
Our experience with Amar - while professional - was also very personal, we got to learn about Amar, his family and likewise he got to know us. Words CANNOT describe how superb Amar is - as a professional realtor that deliver top-notch world class service!
He was almost always available & took great care in all the paperwork and negotiation and was a great advocate for us. I highly recommend calling Amar if you're looking for someone to help guide you through the process, address your concerns, and help you seal the deal in this very competitive housing market.
I’d give Amar a Billion stars if it were Possible---I can't imagine buying this house without Amar. We had a beautiful experience buying our first home with him,. If you are trying to find a good agent, look no further !
I am very happy to write a review to Amar. Amar is an amazing agent with exceptional negotiation skills. 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.
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
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.625M in Saratoga, CA.
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.
Bought a home in 2014 in Warm Springs, Sunol, CA 94539.
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.
Bought a home in 2014 in East Murphy, Sunnyvale, CA 94086.
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.

Bought a home in 2014 in Warm Springs, Sunol, CA 94539.
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.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Pleasanton, CA.
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.
