Ganesh Shanmukham Client, Seller

We first met Sonu when we decided to sell our house on short sale during the economic downturn in 2010. Even though it was a tough economic and market condition, Sonu was very optimistic and promised us that she would get the best deal – and she did it. Within days of working with Sonu she gained our trust and confidence. She is a thorough professional with up to date knowledge on the real estate process and area. At the same time she is very courteous, understanding and flexible. She listened to all our custom needs and took care as promised. She patiently took us through the process and ensured that we understood it. She was always on top of things; we never had to worry as she always followed up with us on the checklist. This being a short sale it was tough to get the bank approval and dealing with big banks was a time consuming process, but Sonu dealt with them in the appropriate manner, consistently followed up with them and got it done.

I highly recommend Sonu as an outstanding realtor who goes the extra mile and gets the deal done for you. Just to give some facts, our sale was done in record time in couple of months and with the best offer in the area. During the same time, my friend was engaged with a different realtor and was struggling to make the sale. Even though it was not under her jurisdiction, Sonu talked to her company, engaged her colleague and helped him complete the short sale.
I take this opportunity to once again thank Sonu for helping me and my friend.

raj_vrk Client, Buyer

Sonu has been wonderful throughout my home search as a buyer for about an year. Very patient with me and showed me all the possible homes on my price range and size. Very professional, on time (never stood me up on any of the appointments), never double booked with some other clients, explained me the pros and cons of the house every time we went to look for one. It was a great pleasure to work with her. I am glad that i had her as my buyer’s agent and i was able to find the dream home i wanted. I will strongly recommend Sonu Bashin for anyone who is looking to buy or sell homes.

Monisha Singh Client Buyer – Helped me buy a home

Sonu is highly professional in what she does – on time, has done research for what you want and will guide you very well through the entire process. . She stays very proactive about the entire process and will stay on top of things until your house gets closed. She will go out of the way to make things work for you. As a person she is very friendly and pleasure to work with. After my first meeting with her, I never thought of her as a realtor. I would run to her for any small/big things and she was always very helpful. I would highly recommend her.

Sonu is the best agent I have dealt with. Not only she helped me to choose the home tailor to my needs, she also listens to my needs and will look into the homes that suit me best. On top of that, she is very professional in dealing with my inquiries in a timely manner and is very honest to show me her true opinions. I am real lucky to have her helping me. She is the best in the bay area!

Luvinder Bedi has recommended your work as a Realtor at RealtyONEGroup BMC Associates.
“I wanted to be sure that you were aware of the home buying and selling experience that we had with Sonu Bhasin of our home. To say that Sonu went above and beyond the call of duty would be an understatement. For over a period of 5-6 months, Sonu spent countless hours showing homes to me and my husband until we finally found “the perfect home” in Dublin. She never made us feel as though we were taking up time that could be better spent elsewhere or that we needed to hurry the process. The three of us connected from the start and hope to remain friends even though the buying process is over.Her knowledge of all areas of Dublin, San Ramon and Danville is impressive and made it easy to navigate during our multi-house appointments. Lots of laughs, lots of encouragement. We couldn’t have done it without her or her recommendation of Rishi to handle the mortgage. Sonu is an asset to the RealtyONE organization and we’re not surprised in the least to see all of the sales awards that have come her way over the years. When the opportunity arises, we’ll be sure to send any real estate business in the direction of Sonu Bhasin.”

We cannot adequately express how amazing of a real estate professional Sonu is. We had tried to work with other agents, and were disappointed each time and felt that their interests were self-motivated, as opposed to serving our needs. Sonu listened, understood what we were looking for, and very professionally convinced us to consider a house we wouldn’t likely have considered. Submitting the offer was a breeze and she kept us calm while we awaited the decision from the Seller. After offer acceptance, she was super responsive, kept us informed the entire process and was so wonderful to partner with. We look forward to working with her in the future.

Summary of their experience
I rarely write reviews but this one is a story I would like to share. I have purchased a number of homes over the years and in most cases it was a good experience. For the first time I used Sonu as my agent and the experience was exceptional. The real estate market is crazy with multiple bids and homes going well over asking price. For approximately 5 months Sonu was the light that cut through the storm and fog of what can only be described as a challenging buyers’ market. Sonu made sure I purchased the home that that best suited my needs. Not some of my needs but all of my needs. There were many bids on many homes. Knowing which homes to chase vs. not was difficult especially given my particular circumstances. Bottom-line, during times of frustration we stayed the course and found the perfect home at the right price. What did Sonu do right? 1) She read the sellers and gathered as much information up front to make an informed decision. 2) Sonu considered all options which in the end was a well written letter to the seller explaining why I needed the home. 3) Sonu negotiated the closing costs and assured all the documentation was correct. 4) Sonu found a great home inspector that was very reasonable and available in < 4 days. 5) There was not a time where I felt my best interests were not properly represented. There are a lot of agents that can find you home. There are not a lot of agents that assure you find the right home at the right price. Michael

“Sonu Bhasin guided us through the entire process from loan prequalification to searching for houses to making the offer and closing the deal while at the same time assisting us with selling our current home. She has extensive experience and knowledge of the market and we were able to fully relay on her expert advice and an objective viewpoint.
We found her to be a highly attentive, conscientious, organized, motivated and professional at her job. She returned our calls and emails quickly, was sensitive to our schedule and made the entire home buying and home selling process smooth and stress-free. She has an incredible attention to detail, excellent follow-through, and is willing to go beyond the expectations of a potential real estate buyer or seller. We experienced that she worked hard and illustrated a great deal of understanding of contract details and negotiation etiquette. We are pleased to recommend Sonu to anyone, who is looking for a highly effective, thorough and reliable real estate agent to assist with buying or selling a home.”

“Sonu helped us with great satisfaction throughout our home buying process. Being first time home buyer we had little knowledge of the process and Sonu made sure all our questions were answered at every stage. She was prompt to respond to our queries and was very professional throughout the engagement. Its been more than an year in our home and we are very satisfied with our purchase and the overall experience”

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Dublin, CA.

“I want to start with Sonu’s quote on Stress “Don’t worry, everything will fall in place soon”. Sonu, she is absolutely amazing.
We had spent months looking for a new place and had so many terrible experiences with laughably terrible realtors in our last home purchase, so we were very much on our guard when we met Sonu.
From the first meeting, Sonu was professional, friendly, and polite. She showed us exactly what we were looking for–none of that “oh no, that place I posted just went off the market, but I have this other listing…” business. She introduced us to the landlord. She was exceptionally accommodating when it came to seeing the house more than once . Her negotiations skills are just unbeatable. When you are buying or selling the house you need your realtor to guide you and to be with you and that’s exactly what Sonu does. She is exceptionally good at what she does and nobody can beat her when it comes to getting you something which seems impossible at one point.
She never pushed us for anything and was always available for us in case of any questions or need. As she always say don’t push your budget too much for new home, because house is something you want to enjoy so buying a house which gives you stress later is not worth it. I highly recommend Sonu, Our friend and the best realtor we worked with.
Sonu all the best for your future sales!!!!!!!!”

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $775K in Pleasanton, CA.
“We had an amazing experience finding our home with Sonu. She is very professional, always on time and arranges tour of a home (even if its outside the open house schedules) in very short notice. She is very gifted when it comes to putting your offer in an appealing manner and working the deal out in your favor. She has impressive knowledge about the market and quickly points out the pros and cons of a house in the market. Once the offer is accepted by the seller,she is quick to get any paper work done from her side, so that all the timelines are easily met. Being a picky buyer, I must acknowledge the patience she showed while helping us find a home that fits our needs.She is extremely friendly and happily guided us through any questions or concerns we raised.She has been a real pleasure to work with and would definitely recommend her to any family/friends/colleagues looking for a new home.She will, without doubt, be the go to person for any future home purchases.”

“The hard work of finding a house and closing it starts with finding the right realtor who can truly understand your needs and work with you through and through. Our hard work was only until we found Sonu, who made it extremely easy for us and was focused on making the home buying “experience” pleasant for us. Sonu is very knowledgeable with very good industry experience , thorough in the way she explains things (especially useful for first time home buyers), does her homework diligently and writes winning offers by focusing on things that are valued. Throughout the closure process, Sonu makes sure she’s there every step of the way and keeps the communication tight across all parties. She has an extensive network of partner firms that she works with to help with all aspects of buying. Her responses are instantaneous and she is extremely reachable, which matters a lot. When it comes to home buying, Sonu is “on it” always and we’d highly recommend Sonu for every buyer who wants have a pleasant experience buying their dream home. We were really lucky in having her as our realtor!!”
