What Our Clients Say
Raj also helped us purchase our home. We spent a lot of time visiting numerous homes. He really helped us put things into perspective to find the perfect one. Considering that we sold our condo and purchased a house during the pandemic, the supply for houses was low with a high demand. He was always positive and available! There were numerous offers, but Raj managed to seal the deal!
We are so grateful for Raj’s strive and dedication. Would not have asked for a better agent! Thanks Raj for always being there and helping us find our home!
I would strongly recommend Raj for adding to your real estate portfolio. He takes the time to understand your specific situation and has a diverse variety of exclusive offerings, offerings which are not accessible to most realtors & public. His guidance, the time he takes to hand pick projects, defines his pride and sincerity to deliver excellence. Raj also takes the time for timely follow up appointments to make sure you are satisfied with his service. He has been diligent in guiding me over the years and I look forward to working with him again to grow my family’s real estate portfolio. He has helped buy real estate for my family & friends for over five years.
Raj is the absolute best real estate agent ever. He has been my entire family’s agent through multiple sales and purchases! Raj for the win every single time.
My brother-in-law recommended Rajat Pathak from Condo Culture to help sell our condo and purchase a house. From the very beginning, Raj was very transparent and professional. He really values his relationships with his clients. He does not see selling a house or helping purchase one as a mere transaction but something more. He makes sure that his clients are happy and get what they want.
Raj helped us find a house during the pandemic. He worked countless hours and days to help us find our place. Thank you, Raj, for helping us through the buying and selling process. You definitely made it easier for us. Thanks for your advice and support. We are looking forward to working with you again!
