Hema Lakhani Testimonials
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Hema helped me to sell a house in Los Altos in April 2020 during shelter in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Selling a house is not an easy process even in the best of times but Hema was able to navigate the new and emerging guidance with flexibility and speed. We were able to move very quickly to list the house and conduct an open house at the last weekend before the shutdown. We had to move very fast and Hema made it possible with dedication and resourcefulness. Hema helped us asses the offers and negotiate with with the buyers a rather complex contract with COVID-19 amendments. Hema is pleasant to work with. She is knowledgeable about the area, diligent, responsive, reliable, and will spend all the time you need to help you achieve your goal.

I would like to share with you my recent 1st time home buying experience and use this opportunity to recommend Hema Lakhani in case you are interested in finding an excellent real estate agent! Did I mention that the home is in Los Altos? This is one of the hottest and toughest markets for first time home buyers due to its excellent schools, lovely houses and condos, charming downtown just to list a few. Hema has been recommended to us by my boss. At first, my husband and I were skeptical as we haven't done our homework in terms of looking at local agents ranking charts for example. Immediately after our first meeting with Hema, we realized that she has a lovely personality, ability to listen and understand our top needs for home selection, excellent communication skills, and, most importantly, infinite patience. With every question we had, Hema was able to bring clarity in the home buying process and made it look natural and rather simple. From house browsing, offer editing, negotiations with the seller's agent and documents signing, Hema was always many steps ahead of the game. We have felt empowered by her confidence and clear advice. Thanks to Hema's guidance and help, we have found a lovely condo in the heart of Los Altos that is perfect for our family. We cannot thank Hema enough for going above and beyond to help us navigate this process!

I recently had the privilege of working with Hema on an a purchase of an investment property. She worked tirelessly on my behalf in finding the property, making the offer and seeing that the transaction worked seamlessly. I would highly recommend her.

My husband and I had fallen in love with a property listed on Zillow when we contacted Hema. The property was in Monterey County - quite a distance from where Hema lives. That was of no consequence. She would adjust to our convenience and take us to see the home innumerable times so we could satisfy ourselves that we loved it just the same as we did the pictures on Zillow. We made an offer and got outbid, but she was persistent and ensured that we were the contingent offer. As luck would have it the original offer fell through and Hema lost no time in rounding us up and closing on the deal. She worked tirelessly to take schedule the walk through and left no stone/rug unturned during the last round of check-up.
She is a wonderful, warm and a very hard-working agent who is rooting for you the whole way. A good person to have on your side. I would recommend her very highly!

Hema was my agent helping me and my family buy our future home in Los Altos which is very big purchase of more than $2 million in a very hot area with super low inventory. We are very happy with the house and the price to get it. I believe that we just could not have the house without her help. We appreciate her very much and was very happy trusting and having her as our agent!
Hema is exceptionally responsive, patient, knowledgeable and communicative. I am not a first-time home buyer and had done a lot research in the area and market. But still, I can get a lot of useful suggestion, knowledge and insights from Hema. She is very knowledgeable about the market and the neighborhood of Los Altos and surrounding cities like Mountain View, Palo Alto, Cupertino, Sunnyvale and West San Jose which were our target areas.
I love the fact that when she works for buyers like us, she is totally on our side during the transaction process. At the same time, she was very professional during the transaction and dealing with the seller side which is why she could win the trust from the seller's side as well. It is very hard to purchase a house in Los Altos area which has super low inventory and a lot of potential buyers. Our offer was accepted among six other offers and Hema presented our offer in the most professional and clean way. After our offer was accepted, she continued help us solve issues and answered our questions until the transaction was fully completed. For example, our loan took longer time to complete. Hema worked closely with my loan agent and negotiated in a very professional and smart way with the seller to get us a few extensions to the close of escrow until my loan was approved.
Again, I am very satisfied and appreciate Hema in her helping us get our ideal house and deeply believe she will be a great agent to anyone who is looking for their dream home. I would recommend Hema wholeheartedly to my relatives and friends when they are looking for buying or selling a house.
