This level of confidence is not something we would have had on our own and was in large part thanks to the support and patience of John and Maitri.

Based on the recommendation of not one but two trusted coworkers, my husband and I decided to work with John and Maitri’s team to buy our very first home.  Throughout the entire, somewhat daunting process, John and Maitri were knowledgeable, available, and supportive.  Working with them was easy and efficient, and throughout the process their rich knowledge of real estate (Maitri also has experience working on the mortgage brokering side) and San Francisco (John’s experience in the city is long and his knowledge of the ins and outs of SF is vast) made us feel comfortable and confident.  

As this was our first home purchase, we were hesitant to rush in to anything and took our time exploring neighborhoods and open houses to determine where we wanted to live and what we were looking for in a house.  John and Maitri did not rush us and emphasized the importance of us feeling comfortable with any decision we made.  They were patient with us as we made endless spreadsheets and over time changed our minds as to what we were looking for, what neighborhoods we were targeting, and what our budget looked like.  Their support during this period allowed us to narrow in on what actually mattered to us and also to get a much better feel for the rhythm of the SF housing market especially with regards to pricing.  

All of this culminated in us being completely ready by the time we made our first offer – we had pre-approvals in place from multiple lenders, understood all the terms of the disclosures and the offer letters, and had a very good sense not only for what we wanted in a house but also for how much we thought would be fair to pay in such a crazy market.  We were able to make a compelling offer that we felt fully comfortable with on the first try; this level of confidence is not something we would have had on our own and was in large part thanks to the support and patience of John and Maitri.  As a result, our first offer was accepted and we are now living in a home we love in a neighborhood that is perfect for our lifestyle, confident that we did not over pay.  

We are grateful to Maitri and John for their help in this process and would fully recommend them to any other potential San Francisco home buyers.
