I have known Sara Ahsan for the last three years. I met her at an Open House that she was hosting, while I was doing an exploratory analysis of the Mountain View and Los Altos real estate markets. I was impressed with her professionalism and friendly-but-not-pushy manner with me as a potential client. Over the last year and a half, I have engaged with Sara for professional services on three different transactions:
1. Locating a temporary residential rental in Los Altos.
2. Acting as my agent in the purchase of a condominium in Mountain View.
3. Locating a commercial rental in Mountain View.
I was extremely impressed with her ability to lock onto my requirements and general tastes, and bring opportunities to me that were excellent candidates - properties that were "just what I was looking for" and inside my price range. Well done!
I highly recommend Sara to you. Please feel free to contact me at 650-793-6130 if you would like any further information.
Sara Ahsan of Coldwell Banker guided us through the sale of a home in Sunnyvale, California in late 2012.
We interviewed three agents from different brokerages and, while all exhibited competence and knowledge, Sara impressed us with her cheerful, warm personality, her candor about both favorable and unfavorable features of the property, and her realistic assessment of the prospects for a successful process. We were not disappointed.
Her thoughtfulness during the subsequent events was consistent, from the setting of the offering price with careful selection of prior sales in the neighborhood, to the extent of effective staging, to appearance enhancements that would preclude adverse first impressions, to the setting of closing process milestones. Throughout, we were confident that Sara was operating in our best interests.
As Sara predicted, we had multiple (4) offers above asking price, all “as-is” a few days after the listing. We accepted one of those, and the process moved to a successful conclusion within three weeks, in spite of the Holiday slowdown. All in all, a stress-free and satisfying experience for us.
I would not hesitate to engage Sara again, should the occasion arise, and I would recommend her to anyone who wants professional and personable representation and guidance through a real estate transaction.

We have enjoyed working with a fine professional such as Sara Ahsan. Over a year ago, we met Sara, with the thought of buying some property. During that process, Sara tirelessly met with us to understand our needs before researching different properties that met our specifications. Often, she would "scout" out the properties before showing them to us. She helped us write several offers, advising us on what would be competitive and reasonable. We appreciated her invaluable assistance and knowledge of the real estate market, her patience and genuine concern for our needs. If ever buying real property can be considered a pleasant experience, Sara has made it so. If we begin looking again, we will contact Sara first! Whenever possible, we recommend her to friends who need a realtor.

Sara helped us purchase our first home in the bay area. I found her to be very attentive to our wants and concerns; this also helped us as a group to find properties that were a good fit. As a first-time home buyer, I had many many questions, I really appreciated her patience and understanding as she answered each one. What I also appreciated is that she was direct and did not shy from making clear what was realistic and possible. I recommend Sara for those who want to work with their real estate agent as a team; she will use her expertise and guide you in the real estate market.
