    My Client Testimonials

    From Yelp . MM Redwood city My husband and I had a great experience buying a home with Ayesha! She was patient and knowledgeable about the area and the process. She expertly guided us through everything from getting pre-approved , managing our wish list and putting in offers. Because of her architect background she was able to tell us what we could do with a fixer upper as well as how much it would cost. In the end she got us a great deal on our dream home and we couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing to find their home in the Bay Area.
    From Yelp. Shivani C. If anyone is reading this realtor is the one for you. She will go beyond what is needed to make sure you get exactly what you want/need. My family and I had a amazing experience buying our first home with Ayesha. She is amazing she went out of her way to help us in every way possible. She traveled two hours for my family and made sure we got the perfect house before my first baby was born. Her customer service is thru the roof whether it was day or night she always answered our calls and answered any questions we had. She is also very friendly and easy going person to talk to. I'm so glad and got lucky to have found her.
    From Yelp Kamil Khan San Jose CA Super helpful and she gets it done! I was busy with work and didn't have much time. Ayesha worked around my schedule and made simple and painless. We sold our house in a Week!!! and she not only brings the real estate experience, but also interior designing. She staged our house like a model home....combination of all the above made our selling experience amazing. Now we looking for a new place and she is our agent!
    From Yelp Leanne B. Burlingame CA Not only is Ayesha highly skilled and experienced in her field, she is also super passionate about her clients needs.
    From Yelp Lula L San Francisco CA As first time home buyers., the process was overwhelming and confusing. Where to begin? I interviewed several real estate agents, and when I met Ayesha through word of mouth, the way she explained the process to me, it made sense. She patiently answered our questions and listened to our needs for a home while narrowing down to the nitty gritty- price range, location, mortgage procedure, offers, contracts, escrow, home inspection, etc., etc. Throughout the process, she is patient, communicative, knowledgeable and effective. I could tell her any concerns that I had, and I trust and value her advice and recommendations. She helped us get the home that suits our criterias- no rush, no push, and she's on top of sending offers in a timely manner and following through. Her professional attitude has been such a pleasure to work with. In times of stressful decisions, bottomless paperwork, and unexpected events, she was simply pleasant -resolving issues and offering solutions. We love our first home, and I highly recommend her.
    From Yelp Natalia S. San Francisco CA Through a mutual friend, as I was thinking about looking at condos, but did not have a clue where to start. From the moment we met, I felt that Ayesha was interested in what I had to say, she listens without interrupting (as revealed throughout the condo-hunting experience). Not only is she extremely savvy about the housing market in both the Bay Area and San Francisco, she also had a keen sense of what exactly I wanted. For those who have been through this process, you will remember that a lot of it is "intangible" - that which you cannot really explain, but hope your realtor understands. Very few realtors have the talent for this magic osmotic process, but Ayesha definitely does. Condo-shopping is an extremely stressful process, but it is made so much more pleasurable when you have the good fortune to work with a professional, competent, woman who always brings her A-game. Never ever did she turn up ill prepared - she always went out of her way to make sure I understood everything, was comfortable with how things were proceeding, and was always there to support me through the process. She was a fierce advocate for me, and has superb negotiating skills - with the patience of a saint. Our search started in the Bay Area and ended in San Francisco - all of which Ayesha handled with charm, wit and humor. I had met other realtors prior to Ayesha, but no one actually inspired me enough to decide to want to actually start looking. But the real test came after the deal was done and dusted - she followed up - often, and there were a few things which still needed sorting out and which she handled with alacrity! I hold Ayesha in very high esteem, and if I ever had to do this again, or sell my condo, she is the professional I would want to work with.
    From Yelp Sarita G , Union city CA We worked with Ayesha for buying a home. From day one she was very helpful in our home buying project. She was always there to provide us expert advice. Very punctual agent who worked through the difficulties with seller and unique contract situations to provide us best deal given the circumstances. I recommend her to anyone who is buying/selling home in bay area.
    From Yelp Gerben S, San Bruno CA Ayesha really helped us find our ideal house. Working with my wife and me to understand what we were looking for, she quickly zoomed in to the houses that appealed to us. After the first few houses we visited, she knew our wishes and all houses afterwards were all to our liking. She gave very informed information about each house. Potential issues, the cost of fixing it, advice on what possibilities there exist for future improvement. All the info we needed to make the best decision for us. She guided us expertly in setting a good bid and followed up on all the necessary paperwork to make it an incredible smooth experience for us. Thank you Ayesha!
    From Yelp Mamatha G , San Mateo CA I met Ayesha at a stage when I'd no concrete idea to purchase a house in Bay area. I always felt that real estate was mystic and I may not be able to get an ideal home here! If I liked a location the house would be overly priced or if i get the house in the price range I should be ready to commute to work from minimum 40mns to even an hour and half one way each. Well then it was Ayesha that helped me find a nice house in San Mateo! She very keenly understood my family needs and always appeared on site on time to show us the available homes for sale. She's very professional and familiar with home buying process. I admired her documentation exchange via docusign which is no hassle! So all in all we are thankful to Ayesha and would recommend her for anyone interested in buying their dream home!
    From Yelp Peter C, Redwood City, CA Ayesha was introduced to us by our banker, and we couldn't have been happier. She helped us find a great investment property, and provided an excellent service throughout the search and purchase process. She was very flexible with her time (which also included weekends), and was quick and responsive in her emails. She was also on top of the game with the large amount of paperwork involved; she even burnt everything on a CD at the end. I would definitely recommend Ayesha to anybody, who is serious about buying or selling real estate. She is knowledgeable, professional, and a lot of fun to work with.
    From Yelp Sean S, San Francisco CA Ayesha was referred to me by a former co worker. I have to say that without Ayesha's help I would have never been able to purchase my house. We looked for months and trying to find a place that was the right price and location. Ayesha was very understanding and worked with me even with my rotating days off and graveyard shift. She would always make the time for me to look at home. I tried to get into one house but it was too late. A few weeks later the house next door to that house came on the market as a short sale. I placed my bit with Ayesha's advice and it was accepted. This was the end May of 2012. Now journey down the long road was just beginning. As time went by there were all kinds of walls and obstacles put before me. Some what are considered the "norm" these days and some really off the wall request and demands. Ayesha was with me all the way to get these challenges meet. Without Ayesha I would have given up. She is a great advocate for you and will help you jump through all the hoops. I finally received the keys to the house at the end of September 2012. From what I have read this is a very short processing time for a short sale. Without Ayesha's expertise it would have taken a lot longer. I highly recommend Ayesha as she is on top of her game and will be with you all the way to the finish, even after. When you are ready give her a call at the "Better Homes & Garden" office in San Mateo, CA (she covers East Bay as well). You will not be disappointed! Thanks for reading.
