About Lakshmi
Bolstered by over 18 years of experience, Lakshmi is armed with unmatched market knowledge. Covering an expansive stretch of the Bay Area, her scope spans San Jose, Campbell, Saratoga, Cupertino, Sunnyvale, Los Altos and Palo Alto to Woodside, Menlo Park, Foster City, Redwood City and Burlingame on the Peninsula. An abundantly hands-on Realtor, she advocates for first-time homebuyers and seasoned 1031 exchange investors alike. Imbued with a diverse background of multifaceted skills, the veteran agent is the ultimate asset.

Equipped with a formidable resume that includes a degree in Civil Engineering, Lakshmi understands building structures on a much deeper level. She has an uncanny knack for analyzing a home seconds after stepping foot on a property. From foundation to drywall, she’s quick to identify issues and thorough in reviewing inspection reports. Transparent in her communication, this top producing agent brings all variables to the table to help clients make informed decisions.

Equally adept at financial aspects, Lakshmi has a comprehensive understanding of the loan process. Backed by over a decade of experience as a loan officer, she sets realistic goals and never pushes clients past their monetary price point. Lakshmi knows that home sales are one of the largest financial decisions of a lifetime and works tirelessly to ensure that her clients get the best value for their money.

A savvy negotiator who garners top dollar when representing sellers, Lakshmi is a dedicated agent who operates with a deep responsibility to every client in her care. Minted by Real Trends and The Wall Street Journal as one of America’s Best Real Estate Professionals, she stands by clients long after closing, often becoming lifelong friends. A firm believer in the power of Warren Buffet’s famous quote, “If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die,” she revels in helping clients create additional revenue streams.

Dedicated to helping the less fortunate, Lakshmi spearheaded Home For Learning in 2020, a non-profit that galvanizes educational opportunities and funds living expenses for disadvantaged youth in India who don’t fit the traditional school system due to poverty and learning disabilities. Lakshmi truly leads with her heart and is a devoted campaigner who has raised over $800K for various non-profits.

Based in the Peninsula with her husband, a Radiation Oncologist at The Permanente Medical Group, the duo adores their proximity to the coastline and can be found hiking, kayaking, and enjoying outdoor activities on their days off. When she’s not at home cooking vegetarian meals or following Deepak Chopra’s guided meditation, Lakshmi loves exploring her community’s local wineries and culinary hotspots. A true Bay Area authority, there’s no better Realtor to help guide you home.

She tries hard to understand her customer, provides relevant and often, more info to explain a situation, and provides the needed comfort to the customer. My family and I have enjoyed working with her on several occasions over the years and will continue engaging with her services for all our family real-estate + mortgage needs.

I recommend her to all my friends as someone they should talk to for their real-estate + mortgage needs first.

I wish her well for continued success.

Best wishes,"

"We engaged Lakshmi's services recently. Right from the get go she was thoroughly professional, walking us through the process at every step and exhibiting patience at all times.

"I have had the pleasure of utilizing Lakshmi's services multiple times over the past several years for my real estate needs. She is one of the best in this business. Her customer service and attention to detail are exemplary. She has always provided the best possible results. I am happy to recommend Lakshmi to anyone looking for an honest, trustworthy and knowledgeable realtor."

" Lakshmi has an in-depth knowledge of real estates in the Bay Area and loan processing. She goes above and beyond to make sure her customer is satisfied as in our case she took us to the listing agent's office for negotiating and submitting our offer. This helped us to get our dream home. Also when it came to getting a loan, she made sure the rate we received was the best at that point in time and also showed pros and cons of going for a 30 year fixed or 5/1 ARM. We highly recommend her, it's a one stop shop for buying / selling home & getting yourself educated on all matters related to home purchase. "
