"Basil has excellent knowledge of the area I was interested in (Parts of East bay nearer to the bay) and provided end to end support in our buying process. After the first few viewings, he quickly picked up on our choices and tailored his suggestions to perfectly fit in our requirements, thus saving us time in the stressful house buying process. Not only does he have good knowledge of neighborhoods, he has good eye for house structures and modifications, and helped us identify and stay away from houses which had shoddy repair and remodel jobs. His knowledge also helped us estimate the modification work we might have to do to get the houses in a livable state and factor that into the cost of the house while making offers. In the offer making process, he advised us to not overbid and gave good, realistic estimates for the offer numbers and also managed to get them accepted with his awesome negotiation skills. We are happy homeowners now, and would readily recommend Basil." - Sagar

"Since I met Basil at a showing, I had an immediate good feeling about him. Long story short, we switched realtors to Basil and couldn't have been more happy with the decision. He was quick to respond, on it and straight forward. Our (first & only) transaction (with him) was not an easy one with the sellers, but we followed his & our lender's advice and we got the place lower than asking price! He kept encouraging us when we were fed up with the transaction and was a strong advocate when we felt bullied as first time homebuyers from the sellers. He always answered our questions and appreciated that he was straight with us. He always stuck by our side. Although the transaction as a whole was rough, the transaction with his team was great! I would highly recommend Basil and will be a returning customer always." - Sahlee

"Basil is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and guided us through the whole process and advising us on how to approach each situation in the sales process. It was a very smooth and easy sales process for us. He and his team are very efficient and very responsive as well - We would get answers to questions within a few minutes of emailing or texting him. Highly recommend him for buying or selling your place." - Mohsin

"Basil was extremely diligent and helpful. He was very patient and helpful in the whole process. We placed offers on multiple houses, though we were loosing he never pushed us to overbid than what it is worth. He took the time to understand our needs and found us exactly what we were looking for. As a first time buyer, we were not able to identify flaws either with the house or with the neighborhood. He pointed us out those things which really saved us from making wrong decisions and pick the right homes. He has extensive knowledge of bay area in general and East bay in particular. Basil is one of a kind and we are glad we connected with him." - Adnan

"My second experience with Basil and just as good as the first ! Professional and efficient and a pleasure to work with. We had a bought a house last year where Basil represented us. This time we were selling a property in South Bay and the we closed in about 2 weeks ! Excellent ."
