What Clients Are Saying

Zarine was a truly exceptional broker. We were working under extremely difficult circumstances: sudden death in the family, cross country negotiations and a global pandemic bearing down upon us- each a potential strain in its own right but having all three at the same time was unbelievable. Yet Zarine and her team were efficient, timely, polite and supportive at every step of the process. The house sold in record time way above our expectations to a lovely young family. Zarine’s good nature and kind and keen instincts guided us along the way. We could not have had a more satisfying experience. Zarine is extremely experienced and it shows in how smoothly the whole process went.

 

My comments about Zarine Batliwalla are from the heart. She was sympathetic to our sudden and tragic events that precipitated the selling of the house. Wish a firm hand, kindness and good humor she guided us through the process. She knew all the ins and outs of inspections and preparations, repairs and staging and had excellent referrals to fine people doing these ancillary jobs, that from my experience can be quite troublesome. She breezed us through (working hard behind the scenes, I am sure to save us the stress). The house was completely transformed into tip top shape for selling. I can say with confidence that if I ever had to sell or buy a house again, I would go to her in a micro-second.

Love you my dear.

"This is the second time we've worked with Zarine. She and her husband Neville worked together to help us purchase our home 10 years ago. When we made the choice to sell, we had no doubt in our mind that we wanted them to guide us through the process. Zarine is thorough, thoughtful and detail oriented agent who's kind- yet firm approach was exactly what we needed to sell our home in this market. Her instincts are spot on, taking into account details that we would never have considered. We would not hesitate to work with or recommend her to anyone looking for a savvy hardworking Realtor.We got a price for our home that we would never have expected."

 

Bian & Jen

"My first transaction with Zarine and Neville started over 12 years ago when we bought a home from them. Since then we have bought and sold several more homes from them over the years. This last transaction was a sale that was a very difficult one for me emotionally. It was my mother's home that she purchased with my father in 1972. My mother passed away and I called Zarine and told her that we needed her help again. Both Neville and Zarine showed lots of compassion and care. They helped me with getting the house ready to put on the market ASAP with their contractor and supervision. My mother's house looked absolutely gorgeous and one week later we had multiple offers and went $150, 000 over the asking price. Neville and Zarine are amazing people and Realtors. I am grateful that my mother had known them over the years and I am sure she wouldn't have chosen anybody else for the sale of her beloved home. I will always recommend them."

Nina & H

"Experienced, industry and area knowledge, excellent negotiating skills and strategy, very pleasant and great to do business with. We selected Zarine based on her work and exceeding our expectations 20 years ago. We also hear about her from other extremely satisfied customers including our son."

 

Firoze Doctor, Foster City, 645 Comet Dr Foster City, CA 94404

"Zarine was an absolute pleasure to work with! She deeply understood our needs as first time sellers and drew on her decades of experience to help us price the property appropriately. She advised us to stage the unit exceptionally well and had a solid sales strategy. The demand she was able to generate was so high that we got multiple offers and closed at 18% over asking in < 2 weeks. Beyond her real estate expertise, Zarine was fun to work with, extremely responsive and someone we look forward to working with again.

Needless to say we are beyond pleased and can't recommend her enough."

K.D.

"We were indeed lucky to have found Zarine Batliwalla. Her patience, experience, local knowledge and understanding made it a pleasant process from start to finish. We were searching for a home in the area for over a year with other Realtors and we strongly believe that without Zarine's help and guidance, we would still be looking. Thank you Zarine for making our dream come true. We love our new home."

 

Shruti & Nagraj

"Words can not express our gratitude for all that you have done for us, for all your hard work and support. It was so easy to trust you, we knew you would get the job done. In the end of course you worked your magic and got us a fantastic price for our home. You negotiated hard and got us into our first home too. You will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you."

 

Amanda & David

"Working with Zarine was a pleasure, from start to finish. It was my first experience buying a property and it would have been impossible to navigate the very complicated and stressful world of San Francisco real estate without Zarine guiding me through it. She was always straightforward, and set expectations very clearly with me and all the stakeholders with whom we interacted. I knew I could trust her implicitly to help me make good decisions along the way. Thank you for helping me find my first home!"

 

Riah Forbes

"This was my third transaction with Zarine, and my husband's second. We continue to be amazed at the quality of her work, and the dedication she has to her clients and their wishes. Right now, I'm sitting in our new living room, typing this testimonial. Just over a month ago, we sat here with Zarine and Neville, deciding whether to put in an offer, and what prices were realistic. In a market where people are looking for 6 months to a year, Zarine managed to get us a home we loved on our first bid, and under our maximum budget. She worked efficiently and tirelessly to get our loan ready to close and the escrow ready for closing in just 25 days, in order to make the offer more attractive. From the moment we expressed interest in the home to well beyond closing and moving in, Zarine has been helpful, respon! sive, efficient, and dependable. We could not ask for more in a realtor, and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in this area.""

"Zarine helped us to get the home we wanted in a multiple bidding situation. We have used her before and are very happy with her services. She negotiated on our behalf while she was on vacation in Europe and sealed the deal as soon as she got back. We are thrilled."

 

N&S

"Sold without putting home on market. Found buyer from another listing. $100,000 more than seller thought he would get!"

 

Prashant, 440 Roosevelt Ave Redwood City, CA 94061

"Everyone in our family is extremely impressed and appreciative of Zarine's performance. She is so awesome and we noticed the respect she got from the other selling agent who also said that we couldn't have done it without her great negotiation skills and knowledge in a multiple bidding situation.
