Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Santa Clara, CA.
We met Ian through the Intero website when a few properties we were interested in got listed in the market.
Ian was amazingly patient and dedicated to the cause of finding us a house till we laid eyes on the right one, till we got the "feeling" you get when you walk into a place.
We'd meet him almost everyday of the week after work hours to go house searching. And it amazed me how patient he was with us! Being very nitpicky about the house we'd buy, we went through at least 50 houses. And if there was any other real estate agent, I think they would've abandoned us long ago. But not Ian Batra!
Another wonderful trait he has is his amicable personality. He would instantly charm the seller's agents, immediately putting us in the good books of the sellers, thereby increasing our chances of winning the bidding wars.
His knowledge about the market, the going rates of houses now and before, which area is desirable vs not is just so impressive. We acted on his advice at almost every turn and that is what bought us this beautiful 3 bedroom condo.
He's got the whole package - very impressive listings, contacts of mortgage brokers, sound advices - the whole nine yards.
Don't think twice, give Ian Batra a call now! My husband and I vouch for it.
I have been searching for an estate style home in Saratoga. Ian took me out and showed me a few properties, I plan on using him to purchase my property. He was driving us around and showed us how the backstreets connect , and seems to have a lot of knowledge about Saratoga and all the shortcuts. My wife and I need a space and a high end kitchen that we can entertain guests and host parties. Ian knows a lot about appliances, layouts, and building materials. He also offered to set me up with contractors who can remodel if we find a house that we like, but is not perfect for our needs.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Ponderosa, Sunnyvale, CA.
I purchased a Condo in Sunnyvale recently and Ian helped me through the process and did a wonderful job. He was always made time to show me condos and houses during the week and went the extra mile to understand what I was looking for and recommend condos accordingly.
The market was pretty competitive and I had two bids rejected. In both cases if I'd listened to what he said it was likely we would've gotten our bid accepted. We finally closed on a lovely condo and he was really helpful and handled the whole process very professionally.
