"I and my wife started thinking of buying a house in late 2020 when it was becoming apparent that the pandemic was getting under control. As this was our first home buying experience in the USA, we wanted to ensure that it was handled by one of our trusted friends and confidants, Shilpa Joshi. Shilpa took us through the pros and cons of owning a home, and helped us understand the implications of the budget we had in mind. She ensured that we are not “up-sold” and worked entirely within the price range that we were comfortable with. She had understood our implied needs, considering the factors that we may not have explicitly stated, given that we were first-time home buyers. Working within the constraints imposed by the pandemic, she tirelessly booked the appointments for viewing, and constantly put our time constraints and priorities first. She was polite but firm when we strayed from our budget and our core requirements as we viewed potential homes. She ensured that we don’t get carried away by participating in the bidding wars in the high-powered seller’s marked in the San Francisco Bay Area. She stayed patient and advised us to stay patient until a right opportunity presented itself. Then, she moved quickly and helped us to make a fool-proof offer and secured the deal in a record time (within 2 months from the time we started house-hunting) for us. We felt very comfortable during the entire process and secure in our knowledge that she had our best interests in mind. We wholeheartedly recommend for any of your real estate needs. Please feel free to reach out to us for any further information you need! " - Abhay

"We can highly recommend Shilpa Joshi’s services. Early 2019 we were beginning to think about selling our home of 20 years but were really concerned about making sure we made a decision based on sound advice and data. We met Shilpa at an open house in our neighborhood and we immediately had a connection with her warm demeanor and were impressed by her market and business smarts. We met Shilpa one-on-one the following weekend in our home. She came equipped with professionally presented market analysis and insights. We walked the property and she provided advice and guidance on what we could do to prepare for a sale in order to attract potential buyers at the top dollar. She won our confidence. We took her advice and after a little investment and sweat equity, we went to market and were under a solid contract within a week. The offer was more than we could have dreamed. Selling a home can be exhausting and worrisome. Shilpa was always there to reassure us and put our minds at ease. Her personal touch and communication truly helped us through the preparation, sell, and closing process of our home. Shilpa started out as our trusted Realtor, but today she is our friend. We give Shilpa an A+! " - The Royer’s

"Shilpa is a exceptional professional. Her dedication to her client is amazing. I am grateful to have Shilpa represented me as a Buyer agent in Jul-19 and again as a Seller agent in my home transaction in Sep-19. Her knowledge as a realtor is sharp and she helped to explain the process very thoroughly. I feel very comfortable to have Shilpa's guidance in putting together the offer or accepting one. She is open minded, listen well to her client, and is excellent in putting the deals together. Her communication between parties are flawless and timely. I highly recommend Shilpa's services to all the home buyers and sellers out there. Thank you Shilpa!" - btrinh2014

"Shilpa is extremely professional. She works hard and makes sure that her clients get their dream house with reasonable price. She's very proactive and always on top of any issues that may occur. I recall clearly that when we put the offer, we were worried about the foundation and Shilpa arranged a inspection even before we ask so that we got it done in time. She never push you to make any rush decisions and you will feel very comfortable working with her." - YitianChen

"I met Shilpa at an open house several years ago. I told her that I would be selling in the future. She kept me informed on the real estate market and followed up on the schedule I gave her. When the time came to sell, Shilpa was very knowledgeable, organized and thorough. I followed her advice and she kept everything moving forward to a speedy and successful sale. She's a great realtor and a very nice person." - dowencpa

"Within the first few minutes of meeting Shilpa we knew we had the perfect realtor to help us find our first home. From the very beginning she was kind, unassuming and attentive to all our questions and concerns. She brings to the table years of experience. Considering how competitive the market is, time is everything. We liked the fast response times regarding time-sensitive communication. If she did not have the answer, she was very resourceful in finding the answer, presenting clearly all our options, and diligent in making sure we had the best. All of this she offered with the kindest of encouragement, never pushing us toward a particular decision or imposing her opinions. She simply assisted us in our decisions throughout the entire process. While we are sure Shilpa had other clients to tend to during our escrow, her attention to detail and constant service reassured us that she was diligent to represent our best interests every step of the way. Her service extended beyond the close of escrow; being new the area, she helped us by recommending handymen, cleaners, movers, etc. Without a doubt we are thankful to have been introduced to Shilpa and even moreso for having selected her as our realtor. She met and exceeded all our expectations. We really like her as a person and now consider her a friend, not merely a business contact. We look forward to working with her again should our situation ever dictate a move or our family outgrow our home!" - Isaac Yeeshan

"Shilpa is an absolutely great realtor, always on her feet, working for the benefit of the client - has some great contacts and is very different from other realtors who are looking for a quick turnaround. Worked with Shilpa in 2014, in helping me sell a home and purchase a home in the Bay area. She helped in preparin our home for sales - from pics, working with the handymen and making sure we don't miss the opportunity window. She also assisted with all approvals of construction from the city and working with the city in making changes. (this requires a lot of experience and tenacity) She also assisted in our purchase, ensuring we were happy with the entire process and the seller made the necessary repairs and changes. " - huzaifadalal

"I have worked with many realtors and Shilpa is just one of those rare diamonds. She can not only understand the strengths and pain-points of a house in an instant, but she can see how one will go through the house at different stages of the family. She breathes real estate and is always thinking about opportunities, strategies and relationships. She recently bought us our dream house and helped sell our old home. She is always punctual and never takes more than 5 mins to respond to a text - whatever time of day it may be! What stands out the most is her attention to detail and ownership. She sweats all details and is a perfectionist but with a great attitude. She is always two steps ahead of anyone and takes care of you like a mother does!" - Vi

About Shilpa

About Shilpa

It is all very simple...

....all that your clients need is the confidence that you will safeguard their interest and work diligently for the best possible outcome!

This is my dream job! Home is where our story is written, where our big and small joys are lived in. It also is one of our most expensive assets. So yes, I love the challenge to bring out a winning outcome for all. In all the legality, all the forms and procedures and ways to do things, I like to keep the joy alive, the excitement happening. After all it is a story and we should write it with heart!

WHY me?... Everything goes well till it doesn't! I do not take my clients and my business for granted & do go that extra mile (or whatever is needed) for every client. I like to deliver an unexpected level of service and care. I started working in this industry under the tutelage of one of the nationally ranked Realtors. From her, I learned strategies of winning transactions, art of negotiation, marketing and power of business connections. Very high transaction volume taught me to work under pressure and still deliver the highest level of client service. At Compass I got the best training in the industry. I keep adding to my knowledge by attending classes, seminars and earning credentials. I take pride in excelling at the technique of real estate transactions. My individual strengths, market knowledge/analytics and high ethics have positioned me very uniquely in this industry.

MY CLIENTS... My clients taught me the heart of the business of real estate. understand what it means to sell a home where the sellers raised their family and themselves installed the mosaic tiles, to gather courage to buy a home in foreign land where you cannot look up to your parents for advice because they are thousands of miles away or the ache of selling a home because it has to be sold…every story is unique and beyond the technicalities which are oh, so important, it requires tending with a patient ear and caring heart.

GRATITUDE... I love working with good people, listening to their unique stories and feel privileged and grateful to be trusted with this important decision.

I have lived in the Bay area for over 29 years now and I have been a volunteer for various causes. I love to spend my free time with my family and friends or with a book, on a beach or a trail.

I believe, if you genuinely care about other people, you naturally make choices that lead to safeguarding their best interest
