Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $750K in Blossom Valley, San Jose, CA.
As first time home-buyers, we could not have been luckier when it came to real estate agents! Jagi and Nomita came highly recommended by some close friends and we can see why - what you get with them are friends experienced in the real estate world, not just agents trying to close a deal.
Both of us have extremely hectic work schedules, which allowed only weekends to look at houses. Jagi was extremely accommodating of this, and worked with us to line things up ahead of time. Besides being extremely polite and professional, what really stood out was Jagi's readiness to share his personal experiences with the different neighborhoods we were checking out - scouting the southern Bay Area with Jagi was like having a guided tour! He also supplemented our requirements with his knowledge of good school districts, so our investment would be protected.
Buying in the Bay Area is not easy - the market moves fast, while it takes newbies like us longer to make a decision. All new home-buyers go through the 5 stages of grief - denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance - and Jagi was patient with us through them all.
The house we liked went through multiple bids and 3 counter-offers before the deal was closed. Jagi's knowledge about the process was key to the deal closing successfully. We also found our mortgage broker through him and were able to close the deal in under 20 days.
A final, and classy, touch was Jagi and Nomita being very "present" even after we closed the deal.They helped us find vendors for final touch-ups and cleanup around the house, and frequently checked to see how we were settling in.
We highly recommend them as estate agents to anyone looking for a place in the Bay Area.

Simply put Nomita and Jagi get it done when others fail. Have used them for seven transactions now and they have been exemplary in all of them. They do their research. They provide full market analysis and learn the neighborhood to target the best price point. They market aggressively and are strong negotiators. They work to get a deep understanding of your needs and goals and work with you to achieve them.
And most importantly they COMMUNICATE. They always pick up the phone when available or respond to messages promptly when not. They always respond to email and texts promptly. They are proactive in keeping their clients in the loop as to what is going on and why. They answer all questions and get answers if they don't have them.
They worked through some difficult transactions and got the deals done when a lesser agent may have let it all fall apart. Highly recommended.

Jagi and Nomita helped us close a townhome in Fremont, CA in 2014. Overall, we were delighted with their guidance, nature, and process. We were looking for about a year until we found this affordable yet cute townhome in central fremont which we liked. We searched many neighborhoods in bay area and Jagi and Nomita were patient in changing their filters to give us relevant leads. They have a good knowledge of the area and can guide you where to look based on your requirements and budget. Once we liked a home, they would provide their advice on pros and cons of house, location but kept the final decision to us.
When it came to preparing offers, they explained each and every clause and condition and helped us to submit a competitive offer. I would say helping diagnose issues in inspection report (let’s agree, all houses have something) and submitting offers were their two biggest value additions for us.
Ultimately, the house we closed was also due to good relationship between Jagi and the listing agent and we are very happy with it. One advice I would give to people opting to work with them is to meet/call them frequently since they get overloaded with many clients (as they are good and hence in demand).
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.575M in Serra, Sunnyvale, CA.
We found Nomita and Jagi when visiting a nearby open house. Jagi was there at the time and he was very friendly and knew the area well. They had prepared a flyer which presented the house honestly and in a very positive way with excellent photographs and concise text. After meeting with them, we decided to entrust them with selling our home. They were very thorough in directing us through all the paperwork. We were impressed that they focused on complete disclosure to ensure the condition of the house was presented honestly. Excellent photos, taken by Jagi, were incorporated into the flyer and on the APR website, providing a comprehensive presentation of the house and yard. They created a schedule which was followed to the letter, and had professionals on call to help with clean-up and staging. In less than a week after our first open house, we were presented with multiple offers that were all at or above asking price. We elected to go with a clean offer with no contingencies and earnest money to secure the offer. At the last minute, the buyer backed out, however this was no fault of Nomita and Jagi, and the offerer had to surrender their earnest payment. Within two days, they followed up with the back-up offerer, which was still above asking, with zero contingencies and early closing. This was in our favor as we were already investing in a new property. We would highly recommend their services as realty professionals.

You guys were awesome! Thanks for entrusting us with selling your fabulous home!!
We started looking for our first home in 2013 and we turned to Nomita and Jagi for guidance. They walked us through every step of the way and helped us navigate the scary world of Bay Area Real Estate.
After 3 offers, we bought a home in Fremont. Nomita and Jagi always kept in mind our primary requirements - schools, commute and safety. The think I absolutely love about Jagi is his pragmatism. He ensured we didn't get carried away with excitement and always rationally critiqued every property we saw.

Nomita and Jagi are experts in their field. Their combined skill set and vast experience made the sale a breeze and painless. I would absolutely sign them up again. They are meticulous and have a great team of helpers readily on hand for getting any house prepped and staged. They're not afraid to roll up their sleeves and go the extra mile. Also enjoyed the photography and their video for best outcome on their marketing package, and they went all out on their open house events with thoughtfully informing neighbors and being perfect hosts for the huge turnouts. I wish them long enduring success!

Sign us up again :))) Was a pleasure working with you.

Working with Jagi and Nomita was easy and very helpful. Jagi is incredibly responsive by e-mail and usually gets back to me within a few hours of having sent my questions regarding properties on the market.
They are very knowledgeable of the San Jose area as I am not originally from the area so their insight was incredibly helpful.
I think it was our great luck that one of my friend's friend referred to Jagi and Nomita when we decided to buy our first house. Like every first time house hunters we had our reservations and questions. Jagi made sure every of it was answered while the search process was going on. Jagi was very through about his research on the homes we selected to see and also provided his inputs about the area surrounding it. Jagi was also prompt in responding to every email we used to exchange in the entire day. We were house hunting when the market was at its peak and had to face rejections in our offers. But we were always motivated by the positive attitude of Jagi and we would start searching with the same vigor. Eventually though we ended up buying a home in new construction community, Jagi was there with us in every step. He used to call and check up the construction progress and even was present during our final walkthrough for our new home. He also made sure that the closing of the house was easy for us.
I and Prasad can not thank enough for all the work he has done for us. This relation with Jagi and Nomita is beyond normal realtor client relation for us. We would highly recommend Jagi for anyone out there, looking for a home to make it a special experience!

The feelings are mutual! You were dedicated to the mission of finding your first home and displayed grace and vigor throughout. It was a pleasure working with you. You will always be friends first and clients second.
We LOVE the Shahanis! We have yet to purchase our home because of the crazy and competitive market out there, but so far we've bid on nearly 4 homes and each time Jagi's expertise has saved us from making mistakes. There were homes we would have bid on but Jagi actually put our interests first and discouraged us from bidding, which is really unheard of to be honest. We feel confident that when we do bid on a home, we have their expertise and savvy to guide us.
The Shahanis have patiently shown us several homes and really understood our requirements. They took the mystery out of home reports so we were actually able to read and decipher them before moving too far ahead. Before the first offer letter, the Shahanis sat with us and went over the paperwork in great detail. It really felt like we had someone looking out for us. As a result we were savvy buyers and felt confident in making such a big purchase. We will always recommend them and when we buy/sell our home it will only be through them.
