Radha is super passionate about her job and as first time homebuyers, we were really fortunate to have her as our realtor. She was very responsive to our queries and explained things adding a lot of context to why the process is so.


She is familiar with the market and does background research that will help you avoid pitfalls. This was very helpful to us as first time buyers. For ex, we would never have thought to dig into whether one of the homes we saw had the HOA planning litigation with the builder.

I can't stress enough how she is great for first time buyers! Going into the process I don't think the wife or I knew what we were looking for. Even when we were forming a feel of what we wanted, we weren't very good with articulating it. Radha was able to pick up on these cues and in many instances translate them to requirements that we were looking for in our home. She was able to guide us as a friend, and helped us buy the home we always wanted!

This review is long overdue! Radha was our trusted agent for two transactions over a 8-10 month period - selling our  townhome and buying a new SFH. 


We were first time sellers and Radha's understanding of the market/buyer profile and her willingness to do everything required to make the home attractive to buyers helped us sail through the process without a hitch.


We did not think twice about using Radha's services when we were ready to buy in a hot seller's market. She was patient with us, explained pros and cons of each home and on several occasions helped us focus when we were drifting towards a perfect home in a not so desirable location! 

Buying in the bay area is not easy and I can't say enough about how reassuring it was to have such a personable and organized realty expert on our side! 5 solid stars!!

Roshan and Anjali.....Fremont



Buying a house can be a complicated process with all its intricacies. Being a first time homebuyer in an aggressive market like the Bay area can be pretty overwhelming. Having an expert realtor like Radha at the helm makes things so much easier! 


Radha has extensive knowledge of the real estate scene in the Bay area. She was patient and professional in explaining the details, and guiding us through the homebuying / mortgage process. She was able to quickly understand our requirements and pointed us towards relevant listings which we could consider. She was very prompt with her responses to our many queries over email / text / call throughout the process.

Radha is meticulous and detail oriented. Touring homes with her helped us learn the different aspects we need to look for in a home. With each home we toured, she mentioned the pros and cons from a neutral perspective and let us make the call regarding considering the house seriously enough to make an offer. 

Radha is well aware of the constituents of a strong offer so as to pique the interest of the seller. She went the extra mile at every step to ensure that we get the best deal. We had travel plans just after loan closure. Radha took care of co-ordinating the pest control treatment with the provider while we were away! 

Thanks for all the help Radha! 
For prospective homebuyers, Radha is a friend and guide who's got your back, every step of the way :)

Radha helped us to quickly find a home in the Santa Clara Neighbour hood. Very knowledgeable and practical when it comes to understanding buyers needs. Helped us to get the right home. Highly recommend Radha as a real estate agent to anyone looking to buy/sell a home.


Anand and Nivadita.....Santa Clara


In summary "Best of the Best"
If you are looking to buy homes in bay area & need an agent Radha should be the 1st choice.

Very thorough and helps in the home buying process from A-Z. When you choose Radha as your realtor you are guaranteed of  professionalism par none. She will provide input on the market & aspects of the house which one may not have considered. Once you want to make an offer she will help write a compelling offer that most likely will get accepted.

As an agent she could stop after you get the house. But she goes above & beyond. She will refer good architects & contractors if you need one. And will check-in regularly till you move in to your home. 

We are thankful (& lucky) to have found Radha to buy our house.

Aravind and Sudha....Cupertino



Radha was referred to us by a friend and it was one of the best referrals we received till date. We were first time home buyers and were lucky to have Radha as our agent. 

Radha is a thorough professional and extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market in the bay area. 

In our first meeting she spent a good amount of time listening to us and understanding our exact requirements. Radha has an eye for detail and would always point out the pros and cons of the homes we visited with her. She would never push us in any particular direction and would always let us make our own decisions. She was always very prompt in communication, be it answering our emails, phone calls or text messages. 


She would read all the disclosures and inspection reports thoroughly before putting an offer and would inform us if something needed attention. She knows exactly how to write a good offer, one which the seller most likely won't be able to turn down. We were able to get our dream home in a very short span of time, all thanks to Radha. 


Radha not only helped us with our home buying process but went above and beyond to help us through our entire mortgage process. 


She was extremely easy to work with and was always very responsive to all our queries. 

Radha also has a lot of referrals handy, be it a general contractor, handyman, gardener, pool service provider, fumigation company or stores carrying home remodeling materials. She also has great home remodeling ideas.
 

All in all, we are very happy to have found Radha to help us with our home buying process and would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their house.

Abhijit and Anagha......Fremont


We worked with Radha to buy property in San Jose in 2016. She was highly recommended by one of our close friends.

Radha has in depth knowledge of real estate in Bay area. She is able to point out all positives and negatives very well and helps you to weigh them according to your needs. She has attention to details and will point so many things about the house that you would have never thought. She never forces you to make a decision and helps clear your mind with facts and figures. She is very prompt and competitive and will provide you with the most accurate market  trends. Because of Radha's guidance we were very comfortable at the time of buying. She answered all the questions we had. I am really glad that someone recommended Radha to us. With her help we were able to  purchase the property we wanted within 2 months. The references that came through Radha were very good as well, especially the bank agent and few contractors who worked on our house. Overall I had a very good experience with Radha and would recommend her to anyone who is planning to buy a property.

Summary: She was the selling agent for our house.


How did it start: We looked at the recently sold comps in our community, and picked the top 2 agents who sold in our community because they tend to know the statistics better. We interviewed both of them (Radha and another realtor B).
Realtor B's agent's fee was lower, but he underestimated the price of our house. He gave us a selling price estimate which we felt was too low. Radha's fee was 0.5% more, but she gave us $100k more estimate on the selling price, and therefore we chose her. Don't repent it at all. 

Next, as soon as we vacated the house, we never made a single visit to the house or Radha's office (except the day we decided on the offers). She picked the keys and did all the paperwork she wanted. All we did was give the keys to her -- she got in a contractor to make the house turnkey i.e, she asked us to spend the minimum dollars to get the maximum good look. She herself went to Home depot with the gardener and changed the landscaping for our house. Other than giving her the key, we did nothing.

Within two weeks from the time we gave her the key, everything was ready -- new paint, new doors, nice landscaping and staging, and we were on the market on the third week. The house was awesome, awesome, awesome -- I couldn't believe it was my own house and my friends felt the same too.
She then listed the house on MLS listings, and within a few hours, I saw 2 digit number of favorites on redfin, and 100+ favorites within a week.

She had multiple open houses and she got her colleagues also to host the open house. In every room, she had a poster describing the room, the updates done, etc. Never seen such kind of hardwork before. She also had multiple open houses during the weekday.

She was extremely professional: we had all the paperwork done correctly without hiccups, and we revealed everything we knew about the house to the buyer.

Finally, we got multiple offers with more than $100k over asking. We choose the highest offer with no contingencies. Up-to-date, this is the highest price  that this kind of house has ever been sold for (100k more than a similar house sold recently)

Cons: Sometimes, I felt she was a bit slow in responding to my emails. She is more quick to phone calls. But finally it didn't matter. We got the best price for our house. 

If you are thinking of a seller's agent and want the best price, don't think. Radha rocks!

Nalini and Prakash......Sunnyvale

Buying a house in the bay area especially can get very over whelming- with the limited inventory and multi bidding process things get very stressful very fast! I am glad Radha held our hand through this. Radha was refereed to us through a friend. She knows the market well and strives hard to understand what the client really wants. She gave us space and time to make our choices and helped us make the right decision. 
She also helped us expedite the closing process making sure we did not miss the school enrollment deadline. 
I am pretty sure I will reach out to her if we get into the market again!

Abhishek and Dhanashri......Redwood Shores


We sold our rental home with Radha. She helped design the entire bathroom and kitchen to the latest trends and she is fully aware of what each house needs to get very good price per the market. She worked patiently with me throughout the entire process. She is very professional and through and more importantly knows what she is doing.

Suresh Reddy......Milpitas


Last late summer, my husband & I started hunting of our first home. Being first time buyers, we were so confused about the home buying process from mortgage to title. We also had specific requirements such as location, community, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, floor level, patio, etc.
Open house visits and high scale bidding ruined most of our weekends. It was also almost impossible for us to review new listings on regular property sites with daily work routines. 

We are so thankful, that we saw Ms Radha Rustagi on yelp. We got very good response from Radha compared to other agents. In our very first meeting she educated us on the buying process and even gave us documents, which clearly explained the convoluted process. When it came time to bidding, she clearly explained the complicated rules and the bidding procedure elaborately. After meeting Radha our search criteria such as price range, locality, floor plan became clear and we were much more efficient in making decisions. 

She is highly experienced in house hunting, location pro/con and estimating the true value of a property. She showed us numerous listings as per our preference. She helped us throughout the process, from short listing properties, thoroughly going through disclosures, selecting a mortgage partner and placing competitive bids for shortlisted properties. She was with us at every step.

It was such an emotional moment for us when our bid was accepted for a condo located in the heart of silicon valley, stones throw away from Apple's new spaceship campus, near to both I-280 & 101 exits and numerous expressways.

We are very thankful to her. Her help has not stopped here; she helped us get a good contractor for remodeling the condo at an affordable cost.

I would definitely recommend Radha as an agent and would like to work with her in future :)

Sandesh and Anila.....Sunnyvale





Radha was our realtor when we purchased our first home  this year, and she was simply awesome across the board.

She goes all out to get the right home for you. She's a great listener for a start, but sometimes we don't even know what's right for us, so she will show us plenty of choices, gauge our reactions, and help us better understand what we're looking for in a home. We learnt a lot from visiting properties with her, thanks to her experience and attention to detail.

Making a successful offer on a home in this area is no cakewalk. I definitely valued Radha data-driven approach to pricing, which gave us more confidence when deciding whether to make an offer and how much to offer.

One other thing that stood out was her dedication to her clients. When it came time to make an offer, Radha was comfortable to go over detail on each perspective even in nights. I don't expect that level of effort, but it's greatly appreciated.

We are thankful we made decisions we were comfortable with throughout the process, and we ended up with a great home, thanks to Radha.

Sunil and Neetu.....Sunnyvale




I am always sluggish when it comes to writing reviews but Radha is so perfect that I just had to write my first review on yelp! As first-time home buyers, we were fairly timid and we needed constant reassurance from Radha on just about everything. Radha was unruffled and even-tempered every step of the way. It just took her one meeting to clearly understand our needs and she was constant in her
efforts to accomplish her goal of finding us just that perfect house that fitted the bill. We thought she has a scrupulous attention to detail. She was always heedful of our needs - even after we had found the house and closed the deal. She would always go over the pros and cons of every house we looked at and would point out the negatives when we were ourselves overlooking them. 


The housing market has gone berserk and even in a market such as this one, we got a very reasonable deal. While part of this could have been just good luck, Radha's diligence played a huge role. Even while she was on vacation, she was on top of things and was so conscientious. She was in touch with us the whole time while on vacation as she prepared paperwork for us to put in an offer. She really did not want us to lose the home we so liked and did everything in her capacity for us to win the house. She did not think the home would stay in the market beyond a couple of days and was therefore working west coast time even while she was holidaying on the east coast. The time difference did not deter her one bit. She is relatively young but we did not find any difference in the extensive knowledge she had versus another accomplished realtor (who had 30 plus years of experience up her sleeve) we had spoken to early on. We are currently remodeling our home and she still gives us very useful information/tips/pointers/recommendations anytime we go to her with questions. 

If we were to ever buy another home (Phew!), it would undoubtedly be Radha again for us. She is truly a painstaking realtor who is very easy to work with.

Soumya and Balaji.....Saratoga




Patient, Caring and Professional are the three adjectives I can think of to describe Radha. In all my years of meeting various agents, Radha is special and a class apart.  If there such a thing as a PERFECT AGENT, Radha is the perfect agent.  

We met her at a random open house  one Saturday and I was impressed with her knowledge and suggestions that fit our needs.  We have been looking for a while and didn't connect with many agents, until we met Radha. I have never met an agent who is so PATIENT, hardworking and really genuine with her approach and work ethics.  She REALLY LISTENED to our needs and patiently guided us along through our search. What we appreciated most about her is her skill in understanding our needs and frustrations, listening and offering practical advice and suggestions along the way. She was never pushy and always supported our final decision.  Home buying and selling is such an emotional and important decision in a couple's life.  

Once she commits to you, she will make sure she is there 200% and really works hard from the acceptance of the offer to closing of the deal. We were also very impressed that she cares deeply about our needs and gave us the care and respect as a friend. She didn't disappear once the offer was accepted, she made sure every little paperwork and transaction was handled professionally. If there was a problem or confusion, she herself made the calls and took care of the issue in hand.  Even though, our house offer was accepted and the process was moving along well,  she made sure she checked in with people often, called and ensured that all aspects of our buying and selling needs were met.   Our entire experience from searching, buying, closing, remodeling along with getting our old house on the market has been a very positive one. She not only knows her craft and work well, she also knows the right and reliable people who can do remodeling and construction work.  

We are very pleased with our new home, and are also very grateful for her help and commitment in selling our other home as well. She managed the right people who took care of everything from staging, window/carpet cleaning, painting, etc.  Our home sold the highest in the neighborhood within the first open house weekend.  We highly recommend Radha for buying and selling of your home, we are very pleased and happy with our experience. My only regret is not meeting her sooner when we purchased our first 2 homes.

As first time home buyers, we were looking for someone who we could trust to help us navigate through the process. W
e found Radha on Yelp and chose to go with her based on her awesome reviews.

After our first meeting we realized the reviews were spot on. Radha knows the local
market, schools (Something that is important for most asian families) and has great negotiation skills.
She accompanied us to several open houses and gave her unbiased opinion about
all the properties we visited. Her pricing judgement helped us secure the 1st house
we put and offer on. We actually overbid which made our offer stand out and 
thanks to her negotiation charm we eventually paid under the listing price.

Home buying in the valley can be a long/ complicated process. A realtor plays a crucial role
in educating and navigating you through it to land you your dream home. It is important
to pick the right guy, someone who has the knowledge, one you can trust and is super
responsive (things move really fast). Radha has all the above qualities and we never felt rushed
in our interactions. She has some excellent references for loan officers/ home inspectors/ handy men etc. to take it the whole 100 yards.

Himanshu and Priyanka.......Pleasanton



We bought our first home two months ago. Radha was our agent. Couldn't have found a better agent. She had extensive knowledge about the about the market. She was very keen on observing every single detail when we visit an open house.She answered all our questions clearly and patiently.  She pointed out all the positive and the negatives. She made sure we know what we are getting into. And she responds to your call , email or message at an impressive timing. If she does not have an answer for your question right then or if she is busy she will at the least let you know that she has received your message and will get back to you. And she does get back to you with all the details. She verified every detail on the documents and made sure the details on them are accurate. She also explained all the documents page by page throughly. I will recommend her to all my friends. She is really really good at what she does and she is an wonderful person.

Preethi and Madhan.......San Jose


I will keep my review brief as many have provided lot of details and shared their experiences in this forum. My own experience was "7 star"  too!

Here is why:

a. Trust - In the last 10+ years I have bought 2 homes and sold 1 home .. with Radha as our real estate agent. I have developed complete trust in her dealings, her judgement and her integrity. There are not many people in this world you can trust, a realtor is generally not one of them. However, in case of Radha, I can say in confidence that you can trust her. 

b. Competence - She obviously knows what she is doing. She knows the market, has strong relationship and is a thorough professional. I can say that because I was happy with the price I got when I sold and bought. You will be hard pressed to find a more knowledgeable, experienced and connected realtor in Silicon Valley.

c. Reliability - She was there when we needed her for clarification on some transaction - while out of town at 6 am in the morning. I had the confidence that I will get a response and I did - on all occasions.

It really meant that I saved money, time and headache. I also gained a good friend I can trust.

You cannot go wrong with Radha !

Sandeep and Sanjita......Sunnyvale and Campbell



We are glad to have had Radha as our realtor for the purchase of our first home. As first time home buyers we started with very little knowledge about the real estate market in Bay area .  She showed us what we could get for our money and how things scaled based on location which helped us better understand the market.  For every home that she showed us, she clearly gave the pros and cons for the  house and explained all the factors that influence the  house's  value and the current market condition in that area.  We never felt pressured  to make an offer and even  when she recommended a bid price, she always made it clear that it was our decision to make and just made sure we had all the facts. She was very professional and closely guided us though out the home buying process.   We felt very comfortable and always felt we were in good hands.

Vinod and Ashmidha.......San Jose


Posting a review a year late...but better late than never :-) Its exactly 1 year that Radha helped us find our dream home. We came to know about Radha from a friend who is very particular about the quality of work/service she gets. She wholeheartedly endorsed Radha and we started working with her around Feb 2014. In our first meeting Radha came across as a dynamic and smart individual. She was nice and friendly and came well prepared for the meeting. She patiently and pleasingly dealt with all our questions as well as our kids moods. We felt confident about working with her and started with open houses.  

We saw almost 50 plus homes and put offers for 3 to 4 homes before we landed our dream place. Radha was very patient and never ever tried to cut shortcuts. She has deep knowledge about the market, can advise on local communities, demographics, school districts and is very thorough with her paperwork. She is very quick with numbers and gave us good guidance about the mortgage process as well. She is a workaholic which was good for us as she was constantly doing the groundwork for us. But when we wanted to slow down a bit, she never pushed us. 

We are very happy with our home, and are satisfied with the house hunting process. Radha is a thorough professional and is there by your side from the beginning to the end. Buying a house can be stressful in this bay area market. Radha is always there to help and you can rest assured that you have a realtor who will always safeguard your interest. We have complete trust in Radha's capabilities and have recommended her to all our friends and acquaintances. I won't hesitate to give her 5 plus stars here as she is very very good!!!

Radha helped us to quickly find a home in the Santa Clara Neighbour hood. Very knowledgeable and practical when it comes to understanding buyers needs. Helped us to get the right home. Highly recommend Radha as a real estate agent to anyone looking to buy/sell a home.

Anand and Nivadita……..Santa Clara

 


 

My buying experience could not have been any more easier. We were picky about what our house should look like and Radha was very meticulous about the details and made sure that all our requirements were met in a realistic way. She knows the area we were looking for (Sunnyvale) like that back of her palm. Her knowledge of the various building codes, violations and construction designs patterns in various parts of the town was very useful to us as buyers. She did not hesitate to take us to show houses around the area numerous times. In all we had a wonderful experience and earned a new friend.
To add to this , she also took care of putting our house on the market. We were tied up with other important commitments during this time and she took the reign and made sure the home was in the best possible condition for a suitable sale. It was sold in record time with the house being in the market for just 4 days. 
I would recommend Radha any day for her business ethic, knowledge of the real estate business,  professionalism and respect for the client she is working for.

Murali and Sree…….Sunnyvale

 


 We were first time home buyers and now home owners, thanks to Radha. Radha just makes this daunting process seem so easy. She is methodical, extremely knowledgeable and very analytical in her assessment. Radha strikes a perfect balance between not being pushy and giving enough direction so we make the right choice. We have known Radha for a long time since my sister and a couple of colleagues at work got their houses through Radha and highly recommended her. When we first went to an open house we had no clue about the process. Radha accompanied us for the next few and we learned what to look for. She is very accommodating and responded to our questions quickly and patiently. In fact after 3 months of sporadic searching and making up our mind, we finally decided to put our first offer on a house we really liked and Radha did such a great job that we ended up getting the house. She was meticulous and knew exactly how to structure the offer so it gets accepted. She will leave no stone unturned to make sure you will find the right home. She also helped us find our mortgage consultant, contractor for some of the repairs that were needed and had great suggestions for interior designs. Radha is a family friend now and I would recommend her to anyone looking for their perfect home :)

We reached out to Radha when we were searching for our first house. In the initial meeting with her, she spent considerable amount of time with us to figure out our exact requirements.  She was very patient throughout our home buying process and explained us all the intricate details. One thing really unique with her is that she never pushed us for any house or even the pricing. 
We waited for around 6 months for our perfect house and it was only possible because of her help!

Sumeet and Jayshri……San Jose

 


 

One of the most important decisions of one's life is buying a house. It is important that you get clear guidance, complete information and correct advice. Radha gave us exactly that. She has commanding knowledge of the bay area market which makes her stand out from many other realtors. She does a thorough study of disclosures and reports before writing the offer. Our offer was written in a way that the seller could not turn it down. She also helps with any remodeling ideas that you might have. Choosing her as our realtor changed the way we looked at houses and we were able to buy a house in a short period of time. We would definitely go with her for our next purchase as well and highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking to buy/sell a house.

She was able to guide us as a friend, and helped us buy the home we always wanted!

It was a pleasure working with Radha. My wife and I were first time home buyers and did not have much knowledge about the home buying process. Radha was patient with us and guided us through the entire home buying / mortgage process. She was able to understand our requirements and show us appropriate listings, and was very knowledgeable about the San Francisco - Bay Area housing market. 

All in all, I am glad we went with an excellent realtor like Radha and would definitely recommend other prospective home buyers to reach out to her.

 

Sid and Priti……Dublin

 


 

More than a year after arriving in the Bay area, we finally got a home of our dreams! Though we have a lot of people to thank for this, Radha is certainly at the top of this list. Home buying anywhere is an experience in itself, but trying to own a home in the Bay area is a unique one. The real estate market here takes a bit of adjustment and stepping out of conventional "financial" comfort zones. Radha extensively spoke about the Bay area real-estate market in a very professional, informative and data oriented way. She understands her clients and communicates very effectively. 

Radha is very resourceful and has a designers' eye for remodeling within reasonable budgets. Every open home we toured with Radha, we learnt about all the things we usually ignored. This approach helped us decide whether we would proceed with making an offer. Radha is very methodical and honest with her recommendation about making an offer.  
  
It is certainly true that the personality, willing to listen to your clients' needs and giving them space and time to make the right life decisions are extremely important to win over their respect. Her calmness, willingness to listen and provide positive constructive feedback during the whole process helped us find a "HOUSE" that we can call "HOME" for a long time. We highly recommend choosing Radha for your next dream home so you can experience first-hand the pleasure of owning a home in a location with the best weather in the world, guided by the best realtor in the business!

 

Seetha and Venu……Saratoga

 


 

As first time home buyers, we really are happy that we found Radha. Following are the things that I think she has consistently exceeded:

Realtor expertise - Expertise is two fold. One that is acquired through books and other that is acquired through experience.  She was able to answer all the questions that a typical first home buyer has. Starting with pre-approval, she patiently helped with the house search and never pushed me to make a decision. Always hunted for houses in right areas. What impressed me is the way she looks beyond when recommending the home. She sees how the area is going to transform, how safe the neighborhood will be, how much appreciation can be expected. 

Timely communication - Not even a single time that I got a delayed response. She is always accessible over email or phone. It's not just about the deliver on time; it's the accuracy of her response and the knowledge she has that really makes the whole home buying process smooth

Remodeling Help - Though I finally ended up buying a old house in heart of sunnyvale, Radha helped me throughout the remodeling the home. Starting with contractor recommendations, planning all the changes in the home, landscaping, exterior changes and monitoring through out the process. 

She is the best!

Radha is well aware of the constituents of a strong offer so as to pique the interest of the seller. She went the extra mile at every step to ensure that we get the best deal. We had travel plans just after loan closure. Radha took care of co-ordinating the pest control treatment with the provider while we were away! 

Thanks for all the help Radha! 
For prospective homebuyers, Radha is a friend and guide who's got your back, every step of the way :)

To say I am happy to have worked with Radha is an understatement. Radha was without a doubt the best part of the home buying experience. She was extremely responsive, easy to work with and very patient with a first time home buyer. Radha worked with in my budget to find me exactly what I was looking for. She knew when to speak up and steer me in a direction I may not have considered, which ultimately lead me to my first home. Three years later I couldn't be happier in my home and am thankful everyday that I worked with Radha. I would highly recommend her to anyone trying to navigate the craze that is the Bay Area housing market.

This review has been long overdue considering how pleased we were having Radha help us out pick our first home! Radha came referred to us by some friends and by far the best referral we have received for anything :-).

At the outset she engaged us and listened to what we were looking for and the neighborhoods we were interested in. And as first time homebuyers we were obviously expecting to pay pittances for palaces. But instead of dashing our hopes outright, she politely mentioned that a few homes that we were interested in might not be in our price range but still worked with us to put in an offer and let us find out for ourselves about which homes/neighbourhoods we could afford. I really appreciated this aspect as she knew what we were going for and it was nothing but work for her but she nevertheless helped us out without saying a word of discouragement. Another aspect that we loved was that she would accompany us to tour open homes on weekends. A few weekends she even got us out of our comfy couches and got us touring :)!!

When it came to the offer writing process, she was meticulous and clearly aware of how to structure an offer to get a response. The offer that got us our home was not the highest but the way she wrote it and way she worked her contacts were what got us the home. The seller's agent in fact let us know that Radha was the factor in us getting the home. For another home that we lost out on, she stopped us from upping the bid saying that it wasn't good value at the price we were thinking about. One other home we were interested in, she made us understand why it wasn't good value either. With either home she would have earned her brokerage months in advance had she let us do what we wanted. But I like that she was thinking about her clients.

She handled my loan agent better than I did to finish the underwriting and approval process. The icing on the cake ... there was a real cake from her in our refrigerator the day we moved on!! :-)

I could go on and on. But for folks looking for a guide and a friend in the home buying process, you cannot do better than Radha!

Radha was recommended by a friend  and helped us buy our first house, a year back.

From understanding our needs well to accompanying us to open houses and promptly following up and answering all our questions, she was a go-to person for nervous first time home buyers like us. In every open house visit, she would explain the pros and cons without forcing us into making decisions. 

Radha is a realtor with a good sense of judgement. She knows when not to go overboard in bidding. We were willing to pay more for the house we bought but Radha recommended a lesser amount(20-25k lesser) and we can't thank her enough for being right. After we closed the deal, she also helped us in finding contractors for floors and fumigation. A month later, she also called up to check how we liked our new house.

We are so glad we worked with Radha in buying our first house. If you show genuine interest, Radha will be with you in every step you take and make sure you are a happy and satisfied home seller/buyer.

Radha is a wonderful professional that I would highly recommend to anyone trying to purchase a house, especially in this crazy Bay area market. 

Radha is dedicated, experienced, knowledgeable, dynamic, responsive, patient, diligent, tactful ... and most importantly, very reliable. Working with Radha, I always feel secured, comfortable, and respected. Radha could also work under pressure very well. When we tried to get our first home early this year, there were times we decided to make an offer on a house in the very last minute, or when the situation changed and we needed to make adjustments to an offer shortly before the deadline, Radha could still make it and she remained just as calm, prompt, and precise as usual, without any complaints.

Even now, after we have bought our house for a couple of months, Radha is still willing to help us. We have been going through a very tough, miserable and stressful time with our contractor. We contact Radha, and with no hesitation, she agrees to help us. She even stays until midnight to help us resolve the problem even though she is very busy. I feel that I can't thank her enough!

Meticulous, knowledgeable, helpful are few qualities that describe Radha. Being a first time home buyer we did a lot of research to find a good realtor. Radha was recommended to us by a friend, and we are glad we worked with her.

She guided us through the entire process. Her suggestions were very helpful. She would patiently advise and explain about the houses and neighborhoods, we were interested in. Even after the deal was done she worked with us in getting the utilities set up, finding a contractor and made a lot of trips to the house as and when required.

We would definitely recommend Radha to anyone out there looking to buy a house.

We will like this forum to give our appreciation and thanks to Radha
Some attributes that make her different from others and for which we are giving her 5 stars are  following
1. She listens to your queries patiently and there were times when we asked so many question from her that anyone could get frustrated.However in her case she was was patient and answered whatever she could in her best way.

2. She is very professional and if you are with her you are ensured that your privacy and personal details are not compromised.

3. She may occasionally miss the phone calls but she ensures to give a call back the same day in some convenient time so that we could  clarify all our queries

4. She understand situation of her clients and help them the best way she can. She helped us too in all possible ways
  a) she was away in india on personal trip but was actively answering our queries and helping us finalize the offer 
  b) she ensured another realtor (who is also very knowledgeable) was there in her absence to take care of any exigent situations.   
     
   
5. She will not force you to put offer for certain amount .She will only give you guidance  and if you want some other number she is ok with that too. 
Good part was that even she wanted us to put higher numbers on certain houses and we did not . yet she ensured that her help is available to us in home buying process and finally it paid off.

6. After spending some time with us. She easily judged whether we will like certain property or not.

I was a First time home buyer and glad i chose Radha as my Realtor. Radha is very professional and a right person to have as your Realtor. As with every First time buyer, we were very nervous  but Radha was awesome and always showed positive attitude. You give her your requirements and Radha will straight way provide feedback on what is possible and what is not. We really liked the way she guided us with the whole process. she was very patient. She use to meet when we were available and was very flexible with timing. For every house we saw, she used to provide pro's and con's and even used to give us idea on what to look for. She visited with us every house and her patience what amazed us. 

When we finally bought a house, she went extra mile to make sure the house is right for us. In fact in our situation  we were out of town while closing the house and Radha went to house again, make sure everything is right from contract terms and conditions to house condition.  Even after we moved in to the new house, she visited us to make sure things are going well.

I was glad to have Radha as our agent and i would highly recommend her. Radha thank you for all the help and getting us our Dream house!

We bought our second home with Radha recently. When we worked with her on buying our first home in the crazy Bay area market, I realized the value of having a savvy, well connected real estate agent on your side. I would even go on to saying that she is not just an agent but she is an adviser who works on your behalf 24*7. 

Radha knows real estate, more importantly she understands what you need. I agree with Gokul who wrote recommendation for Radha here. She somehow knows what you would like.  She is patient, she will come and see as many homes as it takes until you settle down on one you like. There are times when she has made us change our mind showing us problems with homes that we couldn't see with our naivety and we are glad we did listen to her. Talking about her working 24*7 and her patience - while putting offer on our first home, since we were heading out on a camping trip the next day, she stayed up until 1 AM at night going over the disclosures and helping us understand what each one is. I was dozing off but she was at her best even at that time of the day. 

Right from your first questions of when, where, and how much can I afford to you settling down in your home, Radha is there with you all the way working for you. She is in constant contact with everyone involved in the home buying process, keeping everyone informed, resolving any potential issues and ensuring that the process goes as smooth as possible. Now that we have bought a home, we know a lot can go wrong from the time you say "I want to put an offer on this home" to actually getting the keys to the home and having a trusted Adviser like Radha on your side can make a HUGE difference in every aspect of the home buying process from price, to negotiating the terms, to meeting the deadlines, to getting a right interest rate and so on. 

Radha has gone above and beyond her expected work as an agent and helped us out in so many ways. Not just us, but all of our friends who have bought their homes with her are extremely happy with her. We recommend her wholeheartedly.

Atul and Anagha.....Santa Clara


First I want to thank Radha for helping us buy our first home in the bay area. I am glad we had her as our agent and  would recommend her to every one of my friends.
If you want a meticulous real estate agent, who will work for you day in and day out and always keep you on your toes, there is none better than Radha. 
Her attention to detail is impeccable, and the way she follows up with you even when you are finding it difficult to keep up with the home buying process is just amazing.

She knows every little detail about the home buying process and she makes sure she educates you about every one of them. Being first time home buyers, we knew nothing about the process, but she met with us a couple of times, even before we started looking at open houses, and explained to us in a very detailed manner about how the entire home buying process works. 

She has excellent understanding of the pros and cons of every house that she shows you and she does her homework on what her clients are looking for and what kind of house will suit them. I cannot explain it, but she somehow figures out which kind of house I will like and not like. Within seconds of entering a house, she will point out the good and bad about that house and how it will fit my needs. It just amazing to see the way she works.

Now, there is a lot of behind the scene work that she does that we as buyers are not aware of.

She prides herself on the way she conducts her business. Everything has to be fool proof, and glitch free. There will be no loopholes in our applications, and she does not leave anything to chance and will make sure she follows up with every person involved in the process even if you forget to. She has excellent contacts with the banks and will try to connect you with the right people to get the best interest rates possible if you are looking to finance. The bank agents also recognize Radha as a great agent and might waive their fees thus reducing closing costs by significant amounts, just because you are represented by Radha. 
Another thing you dont realise is that The appraisal of the house is done by a bank agent who visits your house with your realtor. Radha makes sure the you get an appraisal for more than the amount you bid, thus immediately increasing the value of your property.

She also does a small write up about you when making the offer, which has details about who you are and what you are looking for and why you want to buy that house, which adds a personal touch to the offer.

She will never force you to make a decision, but she will also remind you of every pro and con of the house and remind you of your priorities when you are unable to make a decision. She also follows up with the you on every step during the loan funding process. She will also make sure, all the bank agents are on their toes and working on your case and make sure everything is processed on time. We had to close a week earlier than when we made the offer, and she knew how to get it done and she did.

She went over every detail of the disclosures before we decided to make an offer and made us aware of all the repairs that we needed to do before moving in to the house. She also put us in touch with the right pest control and termite control companies who gave us a significant discount just because we knew Radha. She even gave us recommendations for contractors  for minor work that we needed done on our house before moving in. The contractor was very reasoable, knowledgeable and knew how to get the job done in the limited time frame we had. She even had the home owner at home during the final walk through so that we could understand every little detail about the house.

She went the extra mile at every step of the way and I am glad she was our agent during our home buying process. Thank you Radha.

Radha helped us purchase our first home in a crazy market. I would highly recommend Radha to any one planning to purchase a home in Bay Area. She has extensive knowledge about the area and offered tips in helping us pick a nice location. She is friendly and easy to work with. Being a first time home buyer in a sellers market is not easy and you definitely need someone who knows the market well and has the ability to close the deal. On our first bid, Radha went through the document page by page and made sure that we understood the paper work. I cannot imagine doing that on my own. Radha was reachable any time of the day and week and addressed our concerns promptly. Radha accompanied us on home tours and offered valuable input on the condition of the home and the neighborhood. She helped us in evaluating the renovation costs required for the home. She sent a detailed comps that included near by home sales. That really helped us in picking a value for our bid. She is well connected in the area and is very resourceful. 

She helped us all the way till the end. Even after winning the bid, she was very prompt in getting the documents that the bank needed from the seller agent. She accompanied us for the signing and handed over the keys to us. She also sent us a check list of utility companies that we needed to contact in our city after the move in which was super useful. She even gave us a move in cake to celebrate! Look no further if you are searching for an agent.

Posting a review a year late...but better late than never :-) Its exactly 1 year that Radha helped us find our dream home. We came to know about Radha from a friend who is very particular about the quality of work/service she gets. She wholeheartedly endorsed Radha and we started working with her around Feb 2014. In our first meeting Radha came across as a dynamic and smart individual. She was nice and friendly and came well prepared for the meeting. She patiently and pleasingly dealt with all our questions as well as our kids moods. We felt confident about working with her and started with open houses.  

We saw almost 50 plus homes and put offers for 3 to 4 homes before we landed our dream place. Radha was very patient and never ever tried to cut shortcuts. She has deep knowledge about the market, can advise on local communities, demographics, school districts and is very thorough with her paperwork. She is very quick with numbers and gave us good guidance about the mortgage process as well. She is a workaholic which was good for us as she was constantly doing the groundwork for us. But when we wanted to slow down a bit, she never pushed us.

We are very happy with our home, and are satisfied with the house hunting process. Radha is a thorough professional and is there by your side from the beginning to the end. Buying a house can be stressful in this bay area market. Radha is always there to help and you can rest assured that you have a realtor who will always safeguard your interest. We have complete trust in Radha's capabilities and have recommended her to all our friends and acquaintances. I won't hesitate to give her 5 plus stars here as she is very very good!!!

Radhika and Unmesh......Sunnyvale


Radha is simply just Awesome! 

We just closed on our second home with Radha. We saw this home and probably just 3 or 4 more with her. She got us the first home we saw with her within 2 weeks. Prior to working with Radha we had been working with a couple of agents for more than 3 months. 

Radha has great efficiency and attention to detail. She gave us the exact market condition, took in all our requirements and showed us the right homes. She provided us with referrals for contractors for remodeling our new home. 

Getting a home in this crazy market is a big challenge, but if you have a realtor like Radha who has a pulse on the market and who also knows the area really well it's easy to score a home. She has a great network of contacts to get everything done when it comes to home buying. 

Overall i highly recommend Radha as one of the best realtors i have worked with.

Thanks to all her great efforts!

Krishnan and Aparna......San Jose





We met Radha in an unusual way .  She placed a note in our doorway stating that she had a client that was interested in purchasing a condo in our development.  We called her because we had an interest in possibly selling our condo.  The young couple she showed the condo to loved it and made an offer that was hard to refuse.  We accepted the offer and the rest is history!

Radha is a lovely, polite and very competent realtor.  She is very organized, prompt and efficient.  She answers emails promptly.  She has a very cute sense of humor which makes her a delight. In addition she is very professional.  I would highly recommend her.

Pat & Robert Hussa......Happy Sellers - Sunnyvale


It has been a year since we moved to our home in Sunnyvale. We were first-time home buyers and Radha offered tremendous support, when we were bidding on homes in this highly competitive market. 

She is a very dedicated professional, who knows the pulse of the market. She is willing to go the extra mile to make the transaction as smooth as possible. She helped us bid on properties even while she was on vacation! 

When we closed escrow, she provided us with referrals for contractors for some home enhancements we needed to do before moving in. The fact that she has won various accolades for her hard work speaks for itself! 

Thank you, Radha for helping us find our "perfect home"!!

Chitra & Sanjay......Sunnyvale


 

"We had Radha as real estate agent when we bought our current home and it was an utter pleasant experience working with her. Radha is a subject expert in Bay Area real estate; she pointed out pros and cons of each property we visited. Furthermore, she is really knowledgeable about each neighborhood and made good cases about how each property fitted for our needs. Radha is also very patient and organized when it comes to closing deals. She helped us with all aspects of the buying process - suggesting contractors to remodel house, negotiating the close process etc. I would highly recommend Radha for any first time home buyers." 

 

Hiep Dinh......Santa Clara


 

"We knew Radha from a highly recommendation from one of our close friends.

 

We are the first home buyers and Radha helped us buy our first home wonderfully WITHIN one month.  I would admit that we were a bit lucky but we couldn't have done that without great support from Radha.

Radha is very knowledgeable, professional and creative. She masters the whole process and helped us understand it thoroughly but still pay attention to the key points and milestones. 

Radha understood our need and concerns as a first home buyer so well. She was never pushy.She provided all information and detailed pros/cons analytic for us to consider and make decision. She also understood the seller's need and emphasized our strong points to stand out of the crowd.

Radha has a great network in realtor business which helped expedite the whole process successfully, from inspecting, offering, closing contract even to post-sale steps such as repairing/upgrading. The home contractor she recommended to us was just excellent, who was very well balance between quality and cost.

Thank you very much Radha.

Best decision we made while buying our house was to have Radha as our agent. She is super awesome. We were first time home buyers and were overwhelmed with entire process. Radha was very helpful and patient throughout. 

Few things we really liked about her work:

1. Not at all pushy but takes perfect amount of interest to keep you motivated.

2. Super friendly and accommodating. We were working on our offer in her office and our daughter was very uncomfortable in the office setting. Radha was not at all hesitant in moving the meeting to our place, even though we were half way through it.

3. She is extremely professional and works for you and with you. 

4. Always on time for appointment.

5. Understands your needs and requirements clearly.

6. Has very good knowledge of market. We were looking in south bay and never had the need to look somewhere else for information. Radha knew everything.

7. Has good contacts for stuff that follows after your offer is accepted. 

Radha made our home buying experience fun and satisfying.

 

Megha and Amit Bansal..........Milpitas


 Radha was our trump card while buying the house. As a first time buyer, we knew what we wanted but our picks were all over the place. A few questions from Radha set our expectations right and the search began in the area of our choice! Radha had a few challenges at hand - cost, location, decent school and 7 weeks for us to close the home as we had our overseas trip coming.

She was able to articulate the positives and negative of the home, its location and the price range to close the home. Once we finalized on a property, we were able to present a compelling offer to the seller, which eventually got us the home we love. She guided us well through the application process and also helped us collect the keys while we were out of the country.

Overall, we had a fantastic experience working with Radha. I would happily recommend her to a close friend or anyone looking to buy a home.

Amit and Vidya......Milpitas


 

Radha has been our realtor and helped us get our first house in the CU district. 
Apart from many things which we really liked about with Radha - top 3 to make it quick and relevant in today's world.
1. Not Pushy -- having worked with a couple of other agents- we realized very quickly that agents will try to push you to make a decision sooner ( for apparent reasons) but we NEVER felt the push from Radha. She would allow us to take our own sweet time and come up with both pros and cons for the house. This is very sane when you are dealing with a market like the Bay area.
2. Very knowledgable / good insights. Radha came across and showed that she was indeed very knowledgable in areas of good school district as well as areas like Milpitas as we changed our location several times. Very important in a realtor who is not tied to a good school district or vice versa.
3. Practical & Diligent - Radha does not abandon you once the house is yours. She was always there till we closed and moved in the house and for sometime after also. As we were first time home buyers - there were so many small things that cld have become time consuming but she wld save the day with her team of people that helped us through our small issues ( Paint job, getting crawl space fixed, etc.etc). She was always present with explainations and details on things that we knew abt as well as did not know abt. 

We are totally satfisfied and would recommend her to any family that is looking for a partner in their quest for a house rather than an agent!!!

 

Hitesh and Amrita  - Happy Home Owners - Cupertino 

 


Based on a strong recommendation from a friend, we approached Radha to help us with the purchase of our first home.


In our first meeting, she took a note of what we really wanted in terms of preferences. She kept a track of every home that came up on sale with those criteria. She provides all the information that is needed in a home buying process.


She is also very friendly, approachable and easy-going. That makes the home buying experience with her a pleasant one. She is always prompt, responsive and detailed.

We had an excellent experience buying our first home. We would definitely recommend Radha as your real estate agent

Neha & Arun - Milpitas


 

Radha has been a perfect fit for us in terms of home search. 

1. Professional excellence  
- Punctual for appointments
- Complete understanding of process/constraints
- Good grasp of financials
- Flexible in terms of appointment times
- Well prepared for potential questions and is always action oriented
2. Awesome area knowledge
- Knows local schools very well and advices based on needs
- Understands neighbourhoods and advices us on better ones and potentially better in long run
3. Looked out for our best interest 
- Helped answer all our questions 
- Never pushed homes on us
- Clearly informed pros/cons of homes
- Stayed with in our budget at all times
4. Stays on top of things to ensure smooth buying process
- Constant touchbase over phone/email
- Know wide range of contacts that helped our buying process easy like Mortgage agents, Insurance agents
- Because she had worked with many of the contacts she was able to accomplish lot of things in short time

Over all, if there are any friends/family members who are looking to buy home I would definitely make sure they use Radha. As she indicated in her profile we got "unparalleled services with utmost care and honesty"

Amar & Aiswarya - Happy Clients - Sunnyvale

 


 

We would recommend Radha any day if you are looking to buy a new house. As first time home buyers we were nervous, unsure, hesitant , new to the whole process. Radha made our lives so much easy. She has deep knowledge about how the real estate market works, market trends, financing, taxes & remodeling areas as well. Based on these she is always able to give you a most accurate end-to-end estimation which always works to your advantage.  Very professional,  hard working, always on top of things, never delays anything which is so crucial in today's market.

 

Also being so actively involved, she never lets an opportunity just pass by, always tries to bring the best of the deals to her client. Always available when you need her, I don't recall calling her twice or following up again. The best part is she never pushes and gives personal space, when important decisions are to be made. Since all of us are also busy in our own profession as well, having someone like Radha helps a lot, who we can rely on completely to get us our dream home with all the details figured out. 

 

She helped us take one of the most important decision in our life and we are very very pleased with the overall "adventure" if you may call so. After we got the house she helped us line up number of "handyman" teams, professional contractors and all sort of people we wanted to do any improvements on the property.  Even after months, she followed up on how things are going with the new home, in case we have questions/concerns etc.

Radha helped my family to get our first house in April, 2013. It is a 3 bedrooms single family in a lovely neighborhood in Santa Clara. It has been 6-month since we moved in and we are very happy with the house so far. House hunting is a lengthy and scary process especially for first house buyers like us. We did our own research using the Internet but still nervous. Radha using her knowledge and experience relieved most of the burden on us. Everything she said, you can easily verify using common sense or some analysis. What you need is an agent who tell you everything in this house hunting game. Radha is such a person.

 

 Radha is not pushy and care about her client. There were a couple houses she recommend us not to bid on. I am glad that she did so because we were impatient after a few failed offers (if you hunt for houses in ).  She is also very professional. She prepares offer packages carefully. In fact, our offer package presented by her impressed the seller agent so much that they chose us although there was another higher offer.

 

 

The last but no least, we need advises on fixing little things in the house. Radha is always a helpful person to consult. She has many different contractor contacts that you would love to get. She is willing help you after you move in the new houses although she does not have to.

"Radha made our first-time home buying experience a breeze. 

She is very knowledgeable and usually provides helpful analysis and always available to answer questions. 

 

She is never pushy, very professional and methodical, and got everything done ahead of time. I would recommend her to any of our friends looking to purchase house in the Bay Area."

We recently worked with Radha Rustagi to buy as well as sell homes, and are very pleased with how both transactions turned out. In the buying process she helped quickly translate our wish-list into practical details such as budget, neighborhoods, size and characteristics of the home. Her astute analysis of buyers’ thinking process enabled us to present a compelling offer and buy the second home that we bid on, which was far quicker than the average homebuyer’s experience in a very competitive South Bay real estate market.

 

In the selling process Radha helped us set the price for our townhome and plan cost-effective improvements to enhance the sale appeal. For a while we considered renting it out instead of selling, and Radha provided good advice even though she did not stand to gain financially from a rental transaction. Ultimately there was a buyer at a very good price, and Radha played a major part in ensuring a prompt and successful close of escrow.

 

During our interactions we found Radha to be very knowledgable, flexible, and responsive. She was thorough with her follow-ups, without making us feel rushed to make decisions. Based on our experience we would highly recommend Radha’s services as your realtor.

"Radha, you helped us to make our first home buying experience less stressful. Thank you for your kindness and support. 

Radha is a great realtor, me & my wife will definitely recommend her to anyone we know for house hunting in the Bay Area! Radha listened to our wants and needs to help us find not only the perfect home, but the perfect neighborhood too. She was attentive, helpful but most important honest.

We are 100% satisfied with our experience with her. She was quite informed on all topics related to the industry, and the questions she didnt know, she did research and got back to us promptly. We found our house quickly because she understood our parameters and narrowed our searches to the houses that fit our needs. She was extremely attentive and always responsive when we had questions or wanted to see different homes. She is extremely hard working and will do anything it takes to make sure her clients are happy!

Radha's biggest strength is her customer service; always happy to help; do more than required; flexible with schedule and not pushy. We will definitely recommend her to our friends and family.

"We are the first-time home buyers, worked with Radha, bought a house, and have been quite happy with it ever since. Some great points in working with Radha, on the top of my mind, are as follows, 

- She can quickly summarize most of the major pros and cons of a house and put them in perspective with respect to the current standards, markets or neighborhood. If we happed to do own investigations (consulting experienced friends, asking in forums, etc.), they often concurred pretty much with what Radha said.   

- She patiently went out to tour many open houses with us even though our search range were kind of broad, geographically (including both peninsula and south bay) as well as price range. 

- For some attractive houses that all of us know that our chance is really small, she still willing to bid for us, just so that we would not have any regret later on. 

- She "prevented" us from buying "bad" houses. At a point, for various reasons, we were tempted to jump in a house in Belmont, she calmly remind us about our target, about the value of the house... In the end,  we decided to stay out of that house. Looking back, that was definitely the right decision. 

I can go on with this list, but in short, Radha really works to make sure that in the end you are happy with what you buy.

''This testimony has taken a while to write primarily because I was struggling to put into words the wonders that Radha has done for me and my family in helping us purchase our first home. When you are talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars, you want someone who cares that you spend it the right. That was the first thing that struck me about Radha in the first few weeks of interaction. You need someone who will work tirelessly to make sure that you get the best home possible. Radha showed me homes almost every single weekend and looked up every single listing I sent her. You need someone who knows the area by the back of her hand so that time is not wasted and Radha knows pretty much every single street in the Bay Area. She'll tell you everything you need to know about a home. Things to look out for. Finally, once you make a decision, she'll go to battle with your money and get the best possible outcome for you.''

 

 Sripathi G. Raj............Milpitas

 


We had an excellent experience buying our first home with Radha. She has a strong work ethic and was very professional throughout the process. She took the time to understand our requirements and diligently followed up on new listings that met or came close. While viewing houses with her, she would quickly spot details of items that were in better or worse than average condition and had a very balanced assessment of how much these mattered.

 

When it was time to make an offer, she carefully appraised us of positives and negatives, but was never too pushy to make a decision, nor on increasing an offer value just to quickly close the deal. These are great qualities in an agent and she really impressed us with her dedication to client satisfaction and her focus on long term reputation. And throughout the contingency and inspection process, she was helpful with the various logistics, and was very detail oriented to ensure that nothing slipped.

 

With a baby due soon, our experience could not have been smooother. Radha was a pleasure to work with, and we would strongly recommend her to anyone serious about buying a home in the area.

As a first time buyer, the home buying experience could have been overwhelming without your guidance. Thank you very much for your hard work, enthusiasm, patience and outstanding professionalism. You have been always prompt, responsive and detailed. You were not just our realtor but someone we consider a “Friend” and we want to thank you for all you have done for us!!

 

Thank goodness you aren’t most folks……………Prashant, Pallavi and Parth, Cupertino,CA

 


 

As a real estate agent, Radha holds your hand from day 1 till the last moment when you purchase your dream house… … and even thereafter.

Radha has a lot of energymotivation and only has your best interest in her mind.

Being undecided, we would have seen at least 40-45 houses with Radha during a course of 15 months, before buying one through her. We were not sure of location and only had certain criteria in mind (for example, all schools to be good and the type of house we wanted etc). As such, Radha tirelessly showed us houses all over Santa Clara county from Palo Alto to Fremont to Evergreen. On any day and time I asked her, she always managed to find time to show me the houses I wanted to see.

Radha is details oriented person. When she shows a house, Radha points to numerous small details – for example the type of base, type of carpet/flooring, any slope in backyard or garage, total costs of upgrades if any needed, the orientation of house, noise issues, type of street and views, sunlight, layout, size of kitchen, presence or absence of family room, wasted space, termites, life of roof, quality of flooring………. While detailing, she is honest and UNBIASED. RADHA NEVER PUSHED US OR SUGGESTED BUYING ANY HOUSE, She lets you get back to her at your pace/time and on your own.

Most importantly, RADHA HAS A LOT OF PATIENCE. Despite the repetitive nature of work, she has the patience to let you finish your thought – each and every single time. Radha has the patience of a person double her age (ah – so say a 62 years person!) during interactions and during showing. I know of other realtors who speed through showings and then some who just wants you to buy the first house they show you and every house thereafter!!! I also know of agents who are lazy and won’t come with you this often.

Radha got us a wonderful deal – better than I had thought and she REPEATEDLY checks on how we are doing during last many months.

Lastly, we bought a house because Radha is genuine, honest and was there nonstop for hours to answer questions and explain specifics of every document tirelessly.

Radha can in fact be more aggressive – but chooses not to.

 

Trust her..............Nikunj and Hiral Parekh, Evergreen- San Jose-CA.


 

“When we decided we finally wanted to get a place for ourselves, I found myself suddenly drowning in the humongous list of  tips, tricks and details of the process. Which was so, until I was referred to Radha by a friend. Then I could delegate all  the trouble to Radha. She is very enthusiastic, and makes an earnest effort to help you throughout the process. Sometimes it  is very easy to get carried away in the middle of the process, since you have a lot of factors affecting your home-purchase  decisions. Radha was spot on with detecting those and helped remind us of our priorities, things to look for etc. She took extra effort to research the neighborhood and came up with detailed stats about the neighborhood/surroundings in each

category. People around you, nearby attractions, nature spots, shopping, convenience, highway access, traffic, safety were some of the categories she gave us. With all this info, we were easily able to zero in on one choice which then we gave our best shot to purchase.

 

In our first meeting, she took a note of what we really wanted in terms of preferences, and kept a track of every home that came up on sale with those criteria. We found ourselves having a lot of choices now, while on our own we were pretty clueless.Once the home was zeroed in on, she communicated regularly with the Sellers agent on our behalf and negotiated a bunch of things we wanted fixed/changed in the transaction(we did this more than a couple of times).

 

She suggested best in class people for the inspections, and here also she gave us so much choice, and all the inspections were done within 3 days. From start to end our home purchase process was 28 days. This is something VERY fast in the real-estate industry and is possible only when you consult with an expert professional like Radha. I should say overall, I was majorly impressed, and will go back to her for any of our next real-estate endeavors."

 "Radha makes me think of Zen. I always saw her being patient and calm, which worked great for nervous first-time buyers like us. She is also a skillful yet tough negotiator, which again worked great when it came to negotiation with the seller. Speaking of wisdom in Zen, she guided us to close the deal smoothly through many steps, from financing to inspection with her many connections. We learned many things during the process with her.

Radha truly has her client's interest at heart. I remember Radha kept asking me about something my wife wanted that she didn't even speak out, but Radha could sense and in the end, got my wife what she needed. 
We later referred several friends to her, and she has already helped one of them to buy their home. Way to go Radha!!.........Duc and Linh, Sunnyvale,CA

 


We approached Radha for purchasing our first home, after receiving a strong recommendation from a friend. Radha helped us close on a home we really liked in very short time. During the home buying process, Radha's strength is in identifying different features of a home/location, and assigning dollar amounts to it, which helped us in making a decision. She also made the entire closing process very smooth with little involvement from our side. We strongly recommend Radha for anyone who is looking for a realtor...........Asha and Sam, San Jose,CA

 


 


We were first time home buyers with some specific requirements.  We had done a lot of research on our own but desperately needed expert advice.  Radha wore multiple hats for us.  She listened to our thought process and resoning and critiqued it; provided logical and sound advice; let us work at our own pace.  She made the overall process as low stress as possible.  
 
She put a very profressinal offer pacakge with aggressive (but realistic) contingency timelines.  The sellers actually complimnented us on these.  She  also had fantastic advice for upgrading the house and a list of reliable contractors that could perform the work reliably and on short notice.
 
We are pleased with our first home-buying experince.
 
Thanks Radha -............. Asif and family

 


 

" Radha is an experienced realtor who puts the HUMAN factor in home search. She quickly grasps the requirements of her clients and finds home that would suit them very well. She is very patient and keeps working with her clients for as long as it takes to find a prefect home. She gives advice in all steps but never forces the client to implement them. She helped us not only in house search but also advised in post purchase improvements and referring reasonably priced, good quality contractors. We are very much satisfied with her services and will recommend her to all our friends...........Manish and Monica, Milpitas,CA

 


 

Radha is knowledgeable of the market and has been proactive in showing us houses. We have been very happy with our house and would recommend her without hesitation. ………… Swastik & Raina Bihani


“Being a first time home buyer, hiring Radha as our Realtor was the smartest decision that we could have made. She is extremely patient, very organized and was always available to discuss each and every detail. More importantly she has a great work ethic, is extremely responsive and a subject matter expert in Bay Area Real estate. We took over an year and countless number of offers to close, but Radha never seemed impatient to close the deal. She understood exactly what type of house we wanted, and patiently advised us to wait till one came on the market. The closing process was extremely smooth. Overall a fabulous experience.”

“We worked w/ Radha for real estate need of our first home and she was extremely committed to helping us find our home based on our needs. We contantly depended on Radha from the get-go as we did not have experience that Radha possessed in home buying. She is very detail oriented in keeping our search criteria in mind. Thank you Radha for all the great support during our home search. She has since then become a very good friend of ours and we would recommend her services to anyone looking to buy/sell home in SF bay area.

 "After talking to a number of agents, we decided to go with Radha as our agent. Even in a short conversation, it was clear to us that Radha was in a different league from others. It took us more than 9 months after that to find a right house and we were always thankful we had Radha. Whether it was patiently explaining the details of a property or calling the loan agents to close on time, Radha was constantly on top of things. Moreover, she always paid attention to the smallest details that were important to us.
All in all, as a buyer's agent, especially for first time buyers, you simply can't do better."

Sridharan Srinivasan & Rajee Sundrarajan, Sunnyvale,CA

 

“Radha worked as my Real Estate Agent for 5 months (October 2008 - February 2009). During this period her performance was superlative, from start to finish. From day 1, she understood my needs and her services were perfectly in tune with my requirements. She had very good knowledge of the home buying process, and she went thru great lengths to guide me through it, including the smallest of details. I continue to consult with her and use her contacts on several home improvement projects I have undertaken. Her work ethics are of the highest caliber. I would strongly recommend Radha without any reservations.”

Preeti & Kapil Gadkar, Sunnyvale,CA
 

 

 "Radha was almost like a family member during our search for a home. She was understanding and patient and had our best interests in mind. Fortunately, for us home hunting was not a long process. We found our home in less than two months, thanks to Radha. On the one occasion where we almost made a decision but then started re-thinking it, Radha was supportive and encouraging. She was never pushy. She understood our hesitation, discussed it with us and helped us make the right decision. I think that is one important quality you would like in your agent, especially if you are first-time home buyers. Radha opened our minds to options we were initially not even considering, like, buying older homes. She has a wealth of knowledge about fixing homes as well and she would routinely point out what kind of work was required on an home and how much it would cost us. She is also very friendly, approachable and easy-going which just adds to making the home buying process with her a pleasant experience. We would definitely recommend Radha as your real estate agent."

We were looking for open homes in the Sunnyvale, Santa Clara area. Just by luck and after we looked at several houses, my wife (begged) me to go inside a house that was open. I was very tired and really did not want to see any more houses but went in.

Now, I think we were very lucky to go into the house. There we met Radha, and right there and then I knew that we found the right agent.   She was so patient and attentive.  Needles to say, Radha showed us at least ten houses and was willing to show us more. She understood our needs and preferences and finally found us (THE BEST HOUSE ON THE BLOCK).

There were couple of issues with the seller and the seller's agent but with Radha's experience and patience (she is very patient ), we were able to overcome all the obstacles and got ourbeautiful house.  If you need a contractor that does the best job at the best and lowest price, Radha has the CONNECTION.   She is the greatest.  

Samir & Malka Mshasha - Santa Clara, CA
 


 She is just an “incredible” person.

She is very sincere and patient, and takes enormous pride in what she does. From the moment we started looking for homes to the moment we got the keys in our hand she has been just wonderful.

 She explained to us very candidly the pros and cons of each property and allowed us to make the decision.  She was present for all property inspections. She explained the details and answered all our questions. This is a big help, especially if you are a first time buyers like us.

She was very tactful in dealing with sellers and their agent, keeping our interest above all.  She always answers her phone and for some reason if she cannot take the call, then she is very prompt in returning calls. This is a very rare quality in an agent.

In short, we were lucky to have her represent us and it would be very difficult to find a betterreal estate agent than her.

Simply the best! When you are planning to buy a home, you need somebody who wants to help rather than closing another transaction AND that’s where Radha comes in picture. Radha, we appreciate your professionalism and negotiation skills. Thanks and all the best! You will get referrals from us. 

 

Amelia and Peter - Pleasanton, CA

 


 

We met Radha at an open house and right away she was very helpful and informative. Radha offered to show us other open houses that were in our price range on the same day. This was very helpful because we’re not from the area and making another trip would be time consuming. She offered her friends’ services, which was in financing that made things a lot easier.

 

Radha is honest and responsible. She even contacted a home inspector and acted on our behalf. Radha definitely has your best interest in mind. She is very professional and easy to talk to. You’re the best! Thank you again for all you’ve done for us

 

Jack and Yan Lai - W. San Jose, CA


We have known Radha for a long time - as a friend.  When we were looking for our first home, she helped us a lot.  She is confident, tactful and knows the "BUSINESS".  If you want a helper  and not a pusher, who understands your needs, likes & dislikes, we would certainly recommend Radha.

We must have seen several houses and everytime she explained to us very candidly, the pros and cons of each property and allowed us to make the decision. She understood our needs and preferences and thats why when this house came in the market, she knew it would be the right one for us and therefore, acted promptly and got us the house. She was very patient, and informative, & has good ideas and would find out any information that you need to make you feel comfortable. she is a good listener, and easy to talk to. we love our home and appreciate Radha for making it happen for us.
