2009 has one been my best year since I started doing real estate in 2002. The beginning of the year was a buyer's market and I focused on that aspect. Then around March I started doing short sales and continued to work with buyers. As the market shifted in April to a sellers market I become involved in more lsitings. From the summer on, I've 65% selling agent and 35% buyer's agent. Though I am currently working with a number of buyers, it's vey difficult to find appropriate properties given the tight supply.

I am expecting the situdation to change in January/February 2010.

Currenlty I am the Broker Owner of SUNIL SETHI REAL ESTATE. I've been doing real estate and financing full time since beginning of 2002. Prior to that I worked in the high-tech world helping young companies go to market, get funding, develop business plans. My original career was as a CPA (inactive). I practiced for 4 years in the tax department of Arthur Andersen and 3 years with Morrison and Foerster. I originally got my Realtor license in 1992 and started working part-time in the industry than.


Most of my clientele is interested in buying a home associated with a high performing school. It's the number one reason people buy homes in Fremont. Fremont has 28 elementary schools, of which in 2006, 10 (36%) had an API score greater than 899, and another 12 (43%) scored between 799-900. The remaining 6 had scores between 732-800, which in comparison to the neighboring districts is still considered great. Two of the Mission Elementary Schools (Mission San Jose Elementary, Gomes Elementary) were ranked top 10 in the state, as ws Hopkins Junior High and Mission San Jose High School. My buyers have looked at Cupertino, and other sites on the Peninsula, but end up choosing Fremont because you simply get more square feet for the dollar and comparable API. 

However Fremont is also an attraction for buyers for the diversity it offers, with over 50% of the population consisting of various minorities.

100% of my business is from referrals and is splits 50/50 between new home buyers and trade-ups. I haven't been seeing much investment buyers here simply because the cash-flow doesn't make sense. My buyers and sellers love me because I don't sugar cost things. I tell you what I really think. My CPA (inactive) background means I tend to more conservative and want to make sure you understand the pros and cons of each property.
