Nisha is an incredible realtor and we highly recommend her to everyone. After working unsuccessfully with two other agents in the Bay Area for more than a year and getting outbid time and time again, we switched to Nisha and she got us a great house within a week! Nisha is very knowledgeable about the local market and real estate in general. She helped us decipher home inspection reports and offered comps to determine homes' market values. She would even call the listing agents of pending properties to find out what they sold for. We were fairly familiar with the market and what we wanted, but Nisha pointed out pros and cons of each property (with an eye on resale value), some of which we hadn't thought of. But she wanted us to be happy and, unlike other realtors, never pushed us to consider homes we weren't totally happy with or refused to submit offers on homes we liked because she personally didn't like them or because she thought they would sell for more. When it came time to submit offers, we chose to focus on multiple properties and only submit offers to homes where we felt we had a chance and the likelihood of a bidding war was lower. We asked Nisha to keep us updated on the level of interest for each house. She managed it all with aplomb, speaking daily with different realtors and letting us know the number of downloaded disclosures and confirmed offers. Nisha is well-known and respected by other local agents and many of them wanted to work with us. Ultimately, it was probably Nisha's good working relationship with the listing agent that allowed us to win our bid. Most importantly, Nisha never pressured us to offer more than we were completely comfortable with. In this sellers' market, we've seen many homes sell for way over their fair market value, but we were able to get our house for a reasonable price, without having to pay 20% over asking. Even after we were in escrow and after closing, Nisha was with us every step of the way. She helped arrange for contractors and different tradespeople and even met them when we weren't available. She purchased a home warranty policy for us and periodically checks in to see if we need anything. In closing (pun intended), Nisha is a capable, kind, and ethical realtor who would be an invaluable partner to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Bay Area.
