Amit Singh is a professional, knowledgeable and savvy realtor. I and my wife were going to relocate from Sacramento to San Jose and were looking into purchasing a home for us. We had no knowledge of the area and were very fortunate to meet Amit Singh. He is very knowledgeable about his local real estate market. He made this stressful process very easy for me and my wife by being a guide showing us homes in the right neighborhood by listening to our requests. He was in constant communication with us throughout the whole process making us feel at ease. I would definitely recommend him to my circle of family and friends and anyone else seeking his services.

Dave is the absolute expert in Sunnyvale Real Estate. We used him for two sells and one buy transaction. We always got the best deal (multiple offers on sells, over list) and won in a multiple offer buy situation. We recommend him with the highest level of confidence. He's a wonderful person too and 100% trustworthy.

      I have known James Dye for over 7 years. James professional ethics, knowledge based decision making, pulse on the market for listing or buying, exceptional contract negotiation skills, far exceeds his 30+ years as a Real Estate Broker. You can literally email, text, or talk to him day or night. When does he sleep? When the sun rises at 5 am. He loves his job, his clients, and the challenge to get the best deal possible. He goes beyond helping clients by taking unwanted items to the dumps, fixing toilets, unclogging sinks, and more, you name it. James will roll up his sleeves and get the job done! He has a myriad of people to help stage, clean, do roof work, kill termites, dry rot and anything I haven't mentioned to repair and redo a home, making it into your dream home. People wait in line for an apt., because they know they can trust James. If the property has issues or not suited for your list of desires, James will tell you honestly. He is not out to make a sale or listing. He is all about fitting his clients needs into their perfect home. Once you have your first apt. with James, you will know for yourself, peace of mind with his knowledge, trust and confidence he will instill from your conversation together.

      Valerie is a true professional: honest, timely, knowledgeable, ethical, warm hearted, aware of the pressures and needs of her clients, and has the best interest of her client in mind at all times. With Valerie’s professional knowledge, guidance and willingness to bear with my eager persistence I was able to find my own piece of paradise. Valerie was fantastic! I found my place while roaming through open houses over many weekends and Valerie understood the perfect fit and helped me close the deal. My move involved selling a property to purchase a new one, providing a direct, daily, comparison between service quality, reliability, professionalism and personal connections between my two agents. Valerie not only provided leadership and support during my purchase process, she was also invaluable in guiding me through the necessary timelines to complete my sale as well. My sale and purchase occurred within a span of eight weeks. Valerie was by my side to help me find and complete all documents, negotiate and process the legalese of all papers ‘real estate’. She personally presented my offer, with my handwritten letter to the sellers wrapped in a fine bottle of red wine! Classy. The true gift that Valerie added goes beyond the art of property sales; Valerie enthusiastically shared her favorite local hot spots, including eateries, boutiques and fun places to explore. It was clear that my happiness was important to her.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What does a real estate agent do?

      Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

      • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
      • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
      • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
      • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
      • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
      • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
      • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
      • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
      • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
      • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

      What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

      Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

      If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

      What should you look for in a real estate agent?

      When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

      Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

      What do real estate agents charge?

      Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

      • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
      • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
      • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
      • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
