Well, I'm not a conventional conservative buyer and was trying get cracking deal on house in a market with mutliple bidder for each house and where houses are selling at 50-60K above listed price. Samit helped me to analyze the market, apply segmentation and differentiation strategy, take calculated risk and close buying a beutiful house at 100k below the market price in an outstanding school and neighborhood. Me and Tini could not beleive it to be true, but Samit knows the secret formula of success even in this market. We also had just 2 months to buy since I moved to Bay Area. Samit is prompt,responsible, flexible and had shown us few houses even at night 10 PM. When it comes to market knowlege, planning, application, flexibility, reponsiblity, intensity, I could see that I am lucky to get help of Samit. Well Done, Samit.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Dublin, CA.
It was a great pleasure to work with Samit. When we placed our first offer for a home, we hadn't even met him. Being first time home buyers we were quiet overwhelmed about home buying process. Samit was very patient and always available to answer our questions. He is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and responsive. He worked hard negotiating and got us a good deal on our home. Thank you Samit for making the process easy.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $875K in Dublin, CA.
First, let me single out Samit for his kindness and follow through. He made us feel like we were the only client by keeping us informed every step of the way.
He also teamed up with us and stayed available for us to talk with him on the phone late at night or during the weekends, just the make sure we would never feel lost in the difficulties of such process
We were truly impressed with the strategy Samit has specifically developed for us and the organization he deployed to make sure the best option will always be available for us.
Second, the team Samit has built around him that came to prepare our house staging was professional and very friendly available for working according to our schedule. fast, and great attitudes.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Santa Teresa, San Jose, CA.
As first time home buyers, we were intimidated & quite overwhelmed with the home buying process. Samit was really helpful in understanding our situation and the budget restrictions. He never pressurized us into buying a home. In fact, there were times where he asked us to back down from submitting an offer as he did not think it was a good deal. He is also knowledgeable about what repairs a home really needs and helped us understand an inspection report. Finally, we found our home and love it to bits. It is the perfect size, perfect location and was within our budget! He got us a very good deal and we couldn't be happier. I highly recommend Samit!
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $725K in North Valley, San Jose, CA.
Samit is a resourceful and efficient professional who goes the extra mile to satisfy his clients. He helped me sell my townhouse after patiently working with my listing for several weeks. He is a full service agent who does everything - prep, stage, market the listing. Besides having the resources of Intero he also brings in his extensive list of personal contacts and network that can help drive up interest in your property.
I would be happy to work with Samit again if the opportunity presents itself.
As first time (and clueless) home buyers, Samit was recommended to us by our friends whom he helped buy their first home a few months back. We struck cords from day one and he became more of a friend who was always there to advise and help - and not like a realtor doing his regular job with yet another client. He quickly understood what we really wanted and was brutally honest and frank with his advises and opinions - never saw him beating around the bush to please us.
We got our offer accepted (it was just the 5th one we did) within two months of starting our home search. And even on the offers that didn't get accepted, we were very very close. The cool thing was that each time he tried something different after doing a very thorough research of the property, the sellers and general market conditions and using his professional network to the best. Our friends and even we tell ourselves that we got lucky - but really it was him working behind the curtains through his vast network to get our offer accepted. He also helped us find a good loan agent and followed up on our behalf throughout the process.
Samit, thanks for being the friend you are to us. We know whom to get in touch with if we have to buy a new home or sell this one down the road.

Samit was extremely helpful when selling my home. He was the buying agent but went out of his way to help me and my husband on our end as well. He was very patient and responsive. I highly recommend him.

Hello Amir and Whitney - Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a great pleasure working with you. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do for you.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $775K in Evergreen, San Jose, CA.
Samit helps us to buy our very first home in the bay area. We had only two months for the whole process, i.e., buy a house and make a final move. Samit work very hard to meet our time line by working long hours. He is very professional, friendly and easy to get hold of him whenever we need him, also he is very punctual, he responds quickly to our emails and phone calls all the time. As we moved from the Midwest, had a lot of general questions about the area and lifestyle even well before our move to the bay area, he was kind enough to answer all our questions, granted as some of them were not really related to our house purchasing. Furthermore, Samit has introduced a great contractor who helps us to fix few things in a timely manner before we move into our new house.
All in all we had very smooth house purchase and great first time home buying experience. We would recommend Samit to anyone who is looking for a house in the bay area. Last but not least, choosing Samit as our first realtor to help us buy our first home was one of the great decisions we have made.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $750K in Evergreen, San Jose, CA.
samit shah has lot of listings in san jose , fremont and milpitas. he is very helpful. he is very experienced. he is associated with intero. the only area a buyer/seller has to be cautious is sometimes buyer's agent and seller's agent are from intero and as a buyer/seller , you need to little bit cautious about that fact. it will be ideal if buyer's agent and sellers agent are from different companies.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Newark, CA.
We were newbies to the whole home buying process when our friends who had just closed on a home with Samit as their realtor referred him to us. Samit was extremely patient and did not try to push us into making an offer even if we had the slightest hesitation. He is very knowledgeable and lets us know the pros and cons of any property. He has great negotiating skills and is a go getter. We had placed two offers and had gotten both. We are very happy with our new home and would definitely recommend Samit to anyone who is looking to buy. Our home buying process was extrememy smooth, thanks to Samit!
