We were lucky to find her

My wife and I sold our condo in San Francisco in the blink of an eye. We then tried to purchase a house in the city, but this proved impossible due to soaring housing costs and extreme competition. We switched our attention to the East Bay and specifically Orinda (premier public school district). We really had little understanding of the housing market in the area and needed an expert fast. JouJou Chawla came to our rescue. Not only does she have an unbelievable knowledge of the local real estate market, but she is very well connected with all the people we needed to work with to get the deal done. When we started working with JouJou things began to move fast. Orinda is another competitive market, but we bid competitively based on her assessment of the property value. There were multiple offers, but we won the first house on which we bid (thank god). The process continued to move forward swiftly and seamlessly as JouJou brought in experts to check the electrical, pool, foundations etc. And armed with their reports she went back to the seller and negotiated the price DOWN, which more than wiped out our closing costs. It doesn’t get any better than this. Not only was her service immaculate during the purchasing process, but once we secured titled she continued to work with us to ensure we got the best bids from local workmen for the improvements we wanted to make to the house. JouJou is a kind, attentive, and thoroughly professional realtor. We were lucky to find her.
