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!
In my 13 years of home-buying, Amar is the only person I would really consider as a true Realtor. After going through my experience, I do not have any doubt that he delivers the best results to his clients whether you are buying or selling homes. Amar is very knowledgeable and really enjoys being in the Realty business and brings about the best qualities. A few big thiings that he brings to his clients are:
a) His network for Lending
b) His relationship strategy with agents from the other side.
c) His negotiation skills
d) He takes care of all the needs along the way
e) He explains the whole process and maintains profiles and provides a lot of information and steps.
All in all, you have to experience your home buying with Amar to understand what I mean.
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.
Thank you so much for being such a great friend and the best and ultimate real estate agent for me and my family. You went out of your way to get us this Home, shows that rather than being in it for the money, you were more interested in our well being, rather than making your own profit – we are eternally grateful to you.
Thanks to you, we have moved from a rented accommodation, where the rent kept going higher and higher, to our own dream Home. We absolutely love the Home you made a reality for us, in the beautiful city of Dublin, in a very good school district, with a lot of like minded neighbours, family and friends living around us!
Amar negotiated from the Builder and lender over 29K [Upgrades: 10K, Price: 8K, Loan closing: 7K, Appliances: 4K] by going above and beyond and guidance throughout the Home buying process is priceless.
I can only stress Amar’s passion, negotiations, and guidance to help clients is hard to match by Realtors. Amar’s strong execution abilities, the breadth of his real estate domain expertise makes him an invaluable asset to any Buyer/Seller. Thanks so much for everything Amar!
Bought a home in 2014 in West San Jose, San Jose, CA 95117.
"We first met Amar on Sep 11th based on reviews. As first time home buyers we were not clear about the entire home buying process. Amar explained us about all the steps and initiated our pre-approval. 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. We closed escrow and got our dream home key exactly within 2 months (Nov 10th) of meeting Amar. Its all still like a dream….Amar made it real.
Overall Amar has a very talented team and he makes you feel comfortable in the entire home buying process".
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $725K in West San Jose, San Jose, CA.
WOW!!, Amar has incredible capabilities to close the deal. Saved lot of money for us. We saw the house on Sunday Open house and he finished deals in 3 days within our budget on tough competitive market. Even after closing, he got us some appliances which were not part of the disclosures.
We wanted to thank you for your professionalism and understanding our requirements. We feel that the selection of you and your real estate firm helped us buying our new house for the best price in a timely manner and it is a great compliment for us. You were most helpful and treated with the utmost professionalism.
In summation, we are very happy with the service you provided, dedicated to doing a very good job and your efforts are sincerely appreciated.
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.
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 !
