We're so glad we found Kaajal. In hindsight, I dont think anyone else could have understood our needs, been as flexible and so easy to talk/interact with. She literally has a 5min response time. She is THAT good. At the very least she will acknowledge that she has received your txt/email and that she will respond to it a bit later. That's who you want as a realtor. You dont want to feel like you're talking to an empty wall not knowing whether or not your message reached them.
Before meeting Kaajal, we met with a couple of other realtors who just said we should look for smaller homes or look at homes that are listed ~100k lesser than our budget so we can end up bidding high enough to get homes. Kaajal said none of that. She was patient in understanding our needs, which she did at our very first meeting. And she was the only one who said - "I will not set you up with the automated MLS search because that's just going to pollute your inbox. Rather, i'll look for ones that might suit your needs and send them". Since we were first time buyers, we were not sure what we really wanted. Kaajal was incredible in helping us with it. She was comfortable showing us homes even when we were not ready to bid on them. She never once forced or pressured us into a decision. During every viewing, she would ask us what we thought about it and she would tell her positives and negatives as well. And what's better - she would go back, do a post-moretem on our feedback of the viewing and comment on them. For example, if something was fixable (closet doors, say), as first time buyers we were not sure if that was okay or not. She would comment on our feedback saying that these were things that aren't that big of a deal and could be fixed prior to moving. This helped us look for what we needed. It helped us understand what to look for in the homes that we saw.
When we were ready to bid, she never discouraged us from the houses that *might* have been slightly over our budget. She adviced us about it. She mentioned what she thought it would go for (and almost always it was on point.) but she let us make the decision on whether or not we should bid and how much we should bid for. It was always our decision.
We got the third home that we bid on. Her expertise and knowledge of the Fremont area and the real estate scene here made our lives so much easier.
Kaajal's help did not stop with us finding our home. We wanted to make a bunch of changes prior to moving in and lo and behold, Kaajal was there to help us find the right contractors for everything we wanted. Despite shopping around for contractors, her contacts were comfortably better than the rest we spoke to.
She is our GO-TO person for anything and everything regarding homes and we would definitely recommend her to anyone we know. If you're looking for a home, just go and talk to Kaajal. She will make you a priority and you will definitely find the home you love.
