Amit was my agent when I purchased my home in 2010 and I was very happy with my experience then. So, when I decided to sell the place this year (2019), he was my natural first choice as agent. We started with an initial consultation where he came up with a list of options and scenarios for me, made sure my mind was made up about the sale and then prepared a dossier for me with comparable, recent sales, market value, likely list price etc. This made it easy to understand the dynamics of the market in one reading before making my final decision to sell. Once we decided to go ahead with the sale, Amit was my one stop shop for all things, handyman work, painting the interior, staging, escrow etc. Having been in the business for many years, he had the right people for each of these, making everything effortless. The entire process chugged along like a well-oiled machine. The week of listing, he arranged a broker open house as well as a regular open house soon after, to market the house to maximum number of qualified and interested buyers. His decision to do an upfront property report helped make sure the buyers knew what they were getting into and write a confident offer. After we listed the home, we had a satisfactory offer above listing price pretty much within 2 days of the first open house. The entire transaction was very smooth and I absolutely felt I was in the right hands with Amit. Amit's real time systems like open house visitor real time feedback, and Interested buyer alerts kept me always on top of all marketing efforts. Overall, Amit and Renuka were completely on top of all things related to the sale and extremely communicative. Always a Whats app message or phone call away to answer the most trivial of questions and concerns. This gives a lot of peace of mind and made the entire experience very smooth and stress free. Amit has been extremely transparent and professional throughout providing the right guidance at the right time. Highly recommended! Will gladly do business with him again! Own Sweet Home!
Highly professional, wonderful person, and she facilitates the outcomes you are seeking. Highest recommendation. Renuka helped me by my first home, and years later when I moved out of town she helped me rent it out to great tenants. She is fun to work with, understands the market very well, and is a strong client advocate.
Awesome. Had a unique situation as the loan process for me was not that straight forward. I was financing for my second home and had to do some financial maneuvering. Amit provided multiple options. Even on the home side Amit negotiated everything: price, contingencies and terms. Due to the unique loan situation, we needed longer time to process the loan but other than that we're all good. All our queries were satisfied on time. Amit was very professional and was available to assist all our questions even on weekend.
Amit was 100 percent available to answer our questions, very professional and friendly. A lot of people also bought homes from Amit based on our personal recommendation. In 2013 Typically homes sold out pretty quickly with multiple offers with no powers to buyers. When I met Amit for first time he explained the Bay Area real estate market and what to expect. He basically prepared us for home buying. Our first offer was accepted. Amit played a vital role in negotiating the price down and certainly helped us with the terms. To a great extent he imparted all the things in the home buying process.
We purchased a home from Amit Inamdar in Fremont. The home we liked the most, had multiple offers and Amit gathered lots of information to guide us in regarding price and terms of the offer. His due diligence resulted in we securing the home of our dreams at the price we were comfortable in a great school district. Amit is a great negotiator. He also helped us with mortgages and has saved us over $100K in mortgage interest by continuously monitoring the rates and advising us on refinancing on right times. We have peace of mind knowing Amit is our side. We highly recommend him for home buying, selling and financing.
We got to know about Amit through his radio program and then as he suggested watched the First Time Home Buyer webinar. The webinar was very informative, and I was really able to get the "home buying" worry off my shoulder. It helped us jumpstart our process. 2017 was a hot market but we got our dream home at a price we were not even expecting. It was a great deal. Amit and Renuka were helpful providing solutions, proactive in giving information and guiding throughout the transaction. All the questions, concerns, process, negotiations with seller, everything was handled professionally and with our interest in mind. Amit and Renuka have high energy and help you complete the entire home buying process.
Amit tried to answer the obvious questions for those with no experience with the Real Estate in the US. I really liked that he laid out all the facts clearly when we met him for the first time. His expertise in financing also helped me understand my reach and made me more prepared for the bay area housing market. 2018 was a hot market but Amit negotiated the terms and contingencies for us. He gave us a brilliant idea which time of the year we should get in the market like kind of when market gets little soft spot and there is less bidding. His advice and guidance in regards to neighborhoods, price or waiting for another property were spot on. The transaction was stress free and done in a timely manner. Amit I would say is very trustworthy so I will give a five star recommendation for osh.
Amit is a very professional, trustworthy realtor and brings value to the table. I heard about Amit and OwnSweetHome through his radio show and a friend also recommended him. The real estate market in 2015 was very hot and there were multiple offers on every property on the market. Buying a home for the first time is a stressful process, however, Amit made it very easy and smooth. He was very prompt in responding to any questions, emails, and phone calls. He provided advice through a personal approach and also aided us with refinancing and the loan process. Amit had sat down with us and explained the pros and cons of each property and the likeliness of the prices they would sell for. He guided us on real estate contract and even analyzed our financial situation. His webinar, First time home buyer, was very informative and helpful for me as I started looking for homes. Five star kudos to OwnSweetHome Realty.
Amit is an expert in the Real Estate. He's been working in the real estate industry for a very long time, he can certainly work with you based on your budget to suit your exact needs. Amit not only helped us sell our home on time but was instrumental to find and buy another house in the neighborhood that we liked. Personally, I find him very approachable and nice enough to readily answer all the questions. You can imagine the questions we had since we were selling a home and buying another one. Glad that Amit was on our side. It's such a big relief that everything turned out well. Both of our closings were done in a timely manner. With Amit’s listing strategy we received multiple offers on our home and sold above asking. His advise on the price, terms contingencies was right on the mark. I highly recommend Amit. He is an expert in the real estate. He's been working in the real estate ind…
2017 was very hot market, it was a seller's market but Amit negotiated pretty much everything for us in price, terms and contingencies. We closed in 21 days instead of 30. So of course, we will and have recommended Amit to our friends, who also bought homes through him. We knew Amit and Renuka for a while and when decided to buy a home, it seemed just right to talk to them. As suggested by Amit, we watched his first time home buyer Webinar and then went to meet him. I think the meeting went very well because we talked about our eligibility, pre-approval, loan process & neighborhood selection. I had a few questions after watching the webinar and Amit answered those happily. Actually Amit was available all the time to answer every question we had during the whole process. Our home buying was very much smooth. He tried to get us the home quickly and made sure we get the home we liked faster without unnecessary delays. For loan also Amit provided the best solutions. Amit is very professional, punctual, and friendly.
Working with Amit, few things stood out to me was his insightful experience in the ins and outs of real estate. That is what I was looking for in a real estate agent and Amit was just the perfect choice. I heard Amit on the radio first and contacted him. He recommended to watch “First Time Home Buyer Webinar” even though I was buying my second home. Glad I listened as I got to know a lot of new information on home buying through the webinar. It was also very helpful since I was buying a resale home for the first time. I had a unique situation as the loan process for me was not that straight forward. I was financing for my second home and had to do some financial maneuvering. Amit provided multiple options. Even on the home side Amit negotiated everything: price, contingencies and terms. Due to the unique loan situation, we needed longer time to process the loan but other than that we're all good. All our queries were satisfied on time. Amit was very professional and was available to assist all our questions even on weekends. Yes five star for osh.
Amit and Renuka are both knowledgeable in mortgage and real estate especially in the Bay area. We were clueless about home buying before watching the first time home buyer webinar. My takeaway on webinar was the whole financial education in buying a home as well as the loan process. Renuka and Amit managed to get us an affordable mortgage and a good deal on a house. When we started looking to buy in 2016, it was a hot market. For us, we had just started our careers so had a limited down payment and did not have great credit scores yet. Amit managed to get our offer accepted with his negotiation skills in multiple offers situation and we were not even the highest bidder for the home we got in. Amit was available and responsive, whether we call or email he will respond immediately. It really helped to have prompt and constant communication. Amit and Renuka are very informative, transparent to talk about the pros and cons. They made sure we were comfortable with our budget, provided us with clear goals and clear expectations. A five star recommendation for osh.
I found Amit to be very professional and knowledgeable in home purchasing, selling and financing. I found him to have very deep understanding of real estate market in cities around San Jose, California. We purchased our second home through Own Sweet Home, realty company that Amit owns. We had very specific requirements such as geographical area, school district, size of the home and access to nearby public places. Amit narrowed down many homes that met our requirements and walked us through open homes with promptness and patience. We purchased home, in a beautiful neighborhood, that all family members continue to enjoy today. For that, I sincerely thank Amit. Amit’s advice in re-financing my first home and financing my current home helped me owning two homes. Thank you Amit for your friendly and professional help. I still vividly remember how you created purchase offer, got the home thoroughly inspected and made sure escrow closed in time for my family to move in. Thanks again. Since then, its a privilege to consider you as our family friends.
Buying a home is a big decision for anyone, more so for a first time home buyer. You definitely want someone who is thorough and knows his stuff. We are so glad we found Amit through a common friend who recommended him. We bought our home in 2013, in a very hostile market. Competing against many offers was turning into an emotionally exhausting experience, and we appreciated all the help we got from Amit to keep our spirits high. Not only Amit was patient with us through the process, but he also made sure we were ready before the process started too. We went through Amit's webinar for first time home buyers, which was an elaborative and informative presentation on what to expect. He patiently went through all the steps, never rushed and answered all the questions we had. During the house-hunting process, we had Amit's undivided attention. I am not sure how he did it while juggling with multiple clients. He was very cognizant of our needs and we could blindly trust Amit. It was a very pleasant experience as a first time home buyer. I will definitely give osh a five star recommendation.
Amit was straightforward, no sugar coating and he did not force us to make a decision immediately. Since it was our first home, we were not sure what kind of home we could afford. Amit gave us a realistic expectations on affordability, helped us narrow down the neighborhoods and finally getting us a beautiful home the whole family had liked. He made us realize the challenges in home buying as well as financing and what can go wrong and that helped a lot. 2016 was a hot market. During the process there was some difficulty in loan. Amit and Renuka were very diligent, patient and provided solution. Amit managed to even get us better rates. They negotiated contingencies for us. Amit also convinced the seller to take care of repairs when we found out that home needed some. Amit's Webinar work wonders. It greatly helped me clarify the doubts on home buying and the financing and making the decision. It was awesome that they were always there whenever we had questions with pretty fast response all the time. Whenever we email or message, they will immediately answer. Amit and Renuka are very helpful and friendly. A well deserved five star recommendation for osh.
Amit and Renuka made the home buying process very smooth for us. The most important aspect was that they were very reliable and made sure that we got the best deal. They advised us throughout the whole process and every decision made along the way. They helped negotiate every aspect possible to provide us with the best opportunities. They managed to bring the price down for us almost ten percent in the hot bay area market. Made sure that all contingencies were taken care of and everything that needed to be fixed was fixed. Amit was very thorough even with small details. Amit and Renuka accompanied us to all the houses we wanted to see and advised us on the pitfalls to avoid during the process. Once we were in contract, Renuka sent a detailed email on the different steps for the entire transaction - timeline, loans, processing, etc. Everything was followed to a tee and we even closed ahead of time. Amit's first time home buyer webinar really helped build a foundation of knowledge for us before we started the search for our home. The content is very informative and helped made real estate and loans understanding a lot easier. I heard about Amit through his radio show, which I have listened since 2012. Our friends have bought home through Amit and Renuka as well. They provide a personal approach which we really admire. We consider Own Sweet Home a one-stop shop for any and all of your real estate needs.
We purchased our first home in Fremont through Own Sweet Home Realty (Amit Inamdar and Renuka Inamdar). They were highly recommended to us from a family friend who themselves went through the home buying process with Amit and Renuka. Amit and Renuka were very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and gave us realistic advice after looking at our financial background. We were a little picky about the neighborhoods because of our work places and those neighborhoods happened to be in very competitive areas. Renuka was still very patient and submitted offers to homes that we liked. After losing like 7 offers, Amit explained to us that perhaps we need to change the neighborhood that we were looking in. We took his advice into consideration and started looking for houses in the East Bay. Renuka took extra effort to identify some properties that were not even listed on the market at the time. We submitted an offer on the property we really liked, and it got accepted (the first one after we changed the area we were looking in). Own Sweet Home realty turned out to be a one-stop shop for us since Amit helped us with the financing. Based on our financial background, Amit tailored the financing options for us and offered a great deal that worked in our best interests. All in all, the whole home buying process with Amit and Renuka was a great learning experience and we ended up with an outstanding deal for a great townhome in Irvington, Fremont.
Buying our first home through Amit and Renuka was a great experience. Being first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions/concerns about the home buying process. Amit's video for first-time home buyers as well as our initial consultation helped outline the important steps getting us a clearer picture of the market and the steps we needed to take, to be successful in the competitive Bay area market. Being real estate as well as mortgage brokers, Amit and Renuka are very knowledgeable about both these aspects of home buying. They were always available to answer all questions whether home related or mortgage related. We wrote few offers with Amit and Renuka and each time they helped us package our offer in a unique way so as to maximize our chances of winning our desired home while working within our comfort zone. One of their strong points is providing you with a cost analysis while guiding you through each offer, which helps you assess the right value for the property, so that you don't feel that you are overpaying for the same property. Amit is also very knowledgeable in the post offer acceptance phase and was very generous to answer all our mortgage and closing related questions. Amit and Renuka have a very strong knowledge about what each area has to offer, which helped us narrow down our area of preference as well as the home we were looking for. We are impressed with Amit and Renuka's professionalism as well as transparency during the home buying process. We highly recommend them as both real estate agents and mortgage brokers and would be working with them again in the future.
As a first time home buyer from another country, Amit and Renuka’s guidance was extremely helpful and reassuring for us. They're extremely friendly, sociable, knowledgeable and helpful. A friend of my husband listened to Amit and Renuka's radio show and recommended them to us. At first, we weren't convinced about contacting a realtor, but after we met Amit and Renuka, we realized how much they bring to the table, how patiently they answered all our questions (even the ones we thought were silly!) We felt they were a good match for us and it was proved right away as our 1st offer was accepted. Their first time home buyer webinar was an eye-opener for us. The initial consultation with Amit was absolutely fantastic it helped us determine our financial reach, what we could afford. He helped us understand the Bay Area real estate market, what part of the Bay Area will continue to appreciate. His insights were invaluable in making us understand and navigate the neighborhoods. November 2015 was a very hot market and we knew we had to move pretty quickly since there were multiple offers for every home that went on the market. Amit & Renuka negotiated everything the price, terms, and contingencies. Since we were new and just starting our lives in the valley, we were extremely grateful for the help they provided. Renuka accompanied us for home showings and had a lot of knowledge about the neighborhoods. They also assisted and guided us on all requirements, paperwork, timeline as well as the tiny but significant details that we would have never known about if we hadn’t reached out to them. They are extremely professional and they went well over and above what they were required to do. Renuka even stepped out on Christmas day to deliver the key to us we were extremely touched by her gesture! For these reasons, I give Amit and Renuka a 5-star rating. And I will always very highly recommend Amit & Renuka to everyone.
