When we first started looking for homes in the Bay Area, we didn't want to attach ourselves to an agent, as we felt that we had better negotiating power as independent home buyers. When we met Manju at her open house, we were instantly impressed with how friendly and honest she was. That afternoon (it was a Sunday) she offered to take us into a few homes and at 9 PM that night, we worked out our first offer over the phone which we submitted the next day. This set the stage for our relationship. Manju realizes that timing is everything when it comes to home sales in this area, so she will do everything in her power to push a deal through. However, she also manages to keep the best interest of her clients a top priority. We weren't in the best position to buy a home, an a lot of prices were out of our range, but that didn't stop her from encouraging a low-ball offer, and she would put her best effort into getting us our price. Basically, I never got the feeling that commission meant more to Manju than us. I'm quite sure that we were on the low end of her "commission list", but it felt like we were her top priority at all times. She would always go to bat for us against the opposing realtors, bargaining for the best deal at all times, and would never back down from the bottom line during a negotiation (unless we allowed her to). She even makes it a point to meet the neighbors before signing any contracts, as a bad neighbor can sour a new home quickly. We got a good deal on our home because of Manju, and we also gained a friend. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.More Less
Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $400K in Willow Glen, San Jose, CA.
Manju was extremely dedicated to help us find our home! She was extremely responsive, hard working and patient. I felt like a good friend was helping us, and it was a very pleasant experience. I trust her and respect how hard she worked for us. You are in good hands with Manju; she'll treat you like family!More Less
Manju is polite, professional, intelligent and personable. Manju provided a detailed analysis of the local real estate market based upon our preferences and directed us toward a purchase that we are very pleased with. We wandered from time to time looking at properties that Manju would not have recommended and we just wasted our time. Our personal associates stated that the area that Manju recommended wasn't a good area for the purchase of a home, and they were absolutely wrong. Manju guided us through the home purchase process step by step and insuring that we received the best return on our investment. Manju addressed all issues with the builder with skill and integrity; she is an effective communicator. We are thankful that we had an opportunity to utilize Manjus talents and we would only recommend Manju for any real estate transaction.
