This was what kept us grounded throughout the process even though there were unexpected developments we had not planned for. This was a tough transaction in a market where home prices had already started cooling off from their peaks in March - June 2015 period combined with the fact that we were not only wanting to sell the property which Rima helped with, we had to buy our next home within a stipulated time frame. Rima went out of her way to get things done for us which were not essentially her responsibilities as an agent. Helping us find contractors to perform some repairs before the sale, getting a cleaning crew to prepare the home for showing during the open house and making recommendations for movers, keeping the buyers honest in their dealing throughout the process, potential properties to buy as our next home and giving scoops of her insider information on most of them helped us a lot during the whole process. As a person, Rima is a charm to work with. Her soft spoken nature, not losing her calm throughout the process, admitting fault when it was required, keeping things realistic at all times without over promising at any stage are things that make her unique. She created a permanent relationship with us during this process that we will cherish for times to come. We would highly recommend Rima as a realtor, especially for the Fremont Mission area as she knows it like the back of her hand and works with one of the leading real estate companies that provides her great support through the process.
She was extremely helpful and very professional. Rima was extremely patient during the process and was very prompt in responding to our questions and in negotiating with the seller’s agent. Her market analysis ensured we don’t overpay. I highly recommend Rima for real estate transactions.
She is always available and answers all our questions or concerns immediately. She continues to help us at remodel even after we closed on the house. She is very knowledgeable on the whole remodeling/building process and it's this expertise of her that helped negotiating and getting house at the right price. She helped us with service providers like architect/contractors, and even guided us from where building materials can be purchased.
She was very patient and dedicated. Real estate professionals have to able to strike a balance between giving as much information, opinion and advice as possible to buyers, and still giving them the space to take their own decision - Rima is extremely deft at this - throughout the process we felt very well-informed about all various factors that should influence our various decisions, and at the same time never felt we were under pressure. Rima even took the time to understand our family members and their needs and factor that into the advice should be give us. The breadth and depth of her advice also demonstrated her wealth of knowledge and grasp of the real estate market and the processes involved. My wife and I both work full time and she was very flexible working around our schedule. She helped us find our dream home and navigate through the negotiations, and throughout the process we felt we were completely in safe hands. We would hire Rima again in a heart beat.
She is extremely responsive and goes out of her way to move things forward in the right direction. I will recommend Rima to anybody looking at the Fremont area for real estate.
We found her to be very responsive and a skilful negotiator during the offer reviewing and contract negotiation process. She staged our home very nicely and had an entire team of experts supporting her and us during the process. I would highly recommend her as your real estate agent.
If there were a 10 star rating, i would give that to Rima. We were first time home buyers and we had just 1 or 2 days to write and submit the offer once the home was selected. Rima worked with us very diligently and spent late evening hours to ensure that our offer was submitted in a timely manner. Rima went beyond her duties and guided us to visit the city office to clarify few of our concerns/doubts. Post our successful closing process, Rima continued to help us by connecting us with handymen, contractors etc as needed. Most importantly, Rima did not rush us through the offer and closing process, was available all the time, kept our interests on her mind all the time and guided us on each and every step of the offer and closing process. Given another opportunity, I would definitely engage Rima again on a real estate transaction. I would definitely be happy to recommend Rima as the real estate agent to my friends and family members. Thanks Rima for helping us with our first home in the popular Mission School District within Bay Area.
She is very familiar with bay area market and helped me buy properties in East Bay and South Bay.
She is a very nice person, incredibly generous with her time including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of couple months. She answered all our question, explained forms clearly and thoroughly, even recommended contractors to fix some things after closure. In general she was a key person for us to take care of anything related to the purchase. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Rima made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend her.
When our children graduated from Mission high school, we started thinking about moving out from mission school district but we were not very sure how to pursue selling and buying at the same time. At that time We met Rima and instantly we knew that she is the one who can help us with selling our house . We talked to her regarding our specific needs .She is highly talented technologically and excellent in marketing. She is very honest and pleasant to work with. She is very professional and does not waste time. She sold our house in two weeks and we got much more than asking price. She is a good negotiator . Rima came up with a deal which surprised us. Throughout this home selling process, she helped us like a family member. This whole process was not stressful at all and was very fast. She did amazing job with staging that we could not even recognize our own house.my family was visiting at the same time outside California which was making me very stressed out but Rima was so cooperative and sensitive that she made sure we have all the relevant furniture and bedroom sets. I did not even realized and house was sold. We highly recommend Rima Advani to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
