    • When we decided to purchase our first home in 2015, my wife and I felt intimidated. We had heard plenty of horror stories about how tough the market was from friends trying to buy, and as newcomers to real estate we felt ill-equipped to handle the extraordinary market conditions in the Bay Area. Even the simple act of choosing an agent felt overwhelming. We got many recommendations from friends and met with a couple of agents that we really liked, but we didn't feel ready to move forward with any of them until we met Adam and Wendy. We wanted agents who would help us feel comfortable about making this enormous purchase by educating us about every detail of the process. From the very first meeting, it was clear that this was team we were looking for. I emphasize the word team, because each individual brought unique strengths to the process. Adam and Wendy helped us get a grasp of the constantly evolving numbers as we narrowed down our target neighborhoods. Adam's experience with house construction and remodels was invaluable as he helped us assess the homes we were seeing to decide whether we wanted to take on a project or not. Throughout the process they were totally transparent with us about what was happening in the market and helped us adjust our expectations. However they were always patient, letting us move at our own pace. When we found the home we wanted, the AW team helped us put together a solid bid strategy that ultimately got us the house. When we originally decided to start looking, I thought the process would take us 6-12 months, with several failed bids. Instead, we got our new home on the first try after just 10 weeks. I believe that their ability to quickly educate us and get us comfortable with the market ended up saving us a lot of money, given how quickly prices have been rising. Even after our offer was accepted, they were with us every step of the way helping coordinate the closing process, and even helping with several post-close items like scheduling fumigation, addressing some small fixes, and having inspectors come out. Throughout the entire process, the AW Team's approach was efficient and data-driven. We never felt pressured to put in an offer, nor did we feel like their advice was intended to influence us in any way. They simply provided us with information and helped us come to our own conclusions. In the end, we got a home we love and we felt great about the process.

    • The AW team provided intelligent, thoughtful support throughout the highly emotional process of selling our home. They helped us make decisions, recommended contractors, set up appointments and encouraged us to adhere to the aggressive timeline we chose. They are also delightful people whom we thoroughly enjoyed working with. The end result was a satisfactory sale above our asking price. We could not have asked for a better team!

    • In order to determine the right price for our home, Wendy provided comps with similar criteria. She suggested a low & high range and then we decided the price. Wendy gave an overview about supply/demand, the number of offers to determine market pricing. If our price wasn't good, she advised us to wait. She had a lot of patience and told us not to rush in. Adam + Wendy were patient and did not rush or push us. They presented the pros and cons of each property. They also pointed details we didn't see. Also, they were very detailed. We relied on Wendy to go through everything with us. We were confident with her knowledge. Since working with Adam + Wendy, we have referred them to our friends. Happy they are partners. We appreciated the team approach.

    • Adam & Wendy are amazing to work with! They are kind & honest and truly care about their clients. They are both very responsive and knowledgeable, they make a great team! I would highly recommend working with them

    • Worked with Wendy on 2 home purchases and recommended her to like 20 people, of which I think all 20 used her instead of anyone else (which is crazy, but that's how good she is!). Such great knowledge, she oftentimes knows what we care about better than we do (eg, she'll realize we are going to care about pollution from the freeway when it wasn't even on our radar).

    • Adam Touni and his team are the pinnacle of professionalism. I can not overstate how strongly I would recommend him to any friend/family looking to buy on the Peninsula. I can honestly say that with anyone else we very likely would not have landed the home we did, especially in this crazy competitive market. We had been looking for a few months informally, and when we were seriously starting to look we had the great fortune of a friend recommending Adam to us. He invested a lot of time in getting to know what we were about and helped us really hone our search, and set us up to have realistic expectations so that we would be poised to make competitive offer(s)--but thankfully we only had to make one! When we fell in love with the home we now own, it was Adam's know-how, experience, charm, and professionalism that made us successful (i.e. we were not the highest bid. just the best). Most importantly, Adam and his team-mate (Wendy) were readily and reliably there for us during and after the close of escrow. This turned out to be tremendously important, as our lender took us on quite a roller-coaster, and at times looked like they might not get it together in time, which was extremely stressful. But throughout that process Adam was our 'rock' and took charge of making sure that the other parties involved rose to his level of professionalism.

    • I highly recommend Adam and Wendy, the AW Team! They recently helped to sell my house in Palo Alto, and I couldnt be happier with the results. Upon our first meeting they quickly gained my trust, with their terrific understanding of our local real estate market, and strategic planning. Throughout the entire process they gave great advice, and orchestrated the myriad of details resulting in a most successful sale. Thank you so much, Adam and Wendy!

    • Wendy Kandasamy assisted my wife and I in our purchase of a condominium in Mountain View a few years ago. She is extremely knowledgeable about the economics of the real estate market. Wendy was extremely patient and took our desires and concerns to heart. She has been extremely helpful, even in the post-purchase process, which we both appreciate greatly. Thanks Wendy.

    • Adam and Wendy were absolutely fantastic to work with! We were referred to them by 3 separate friends who each bought their first homes through the AW team and also had nothing but fabulous reviews. They were incredibly responsive, professional, and comprehensive. They listened closely to our individual needs as a family and were thorough in guiding us through the home buying process (a very intimidating feat for a first time home buyer). Even after we purchased our home, their office continued to follow-up with excellent recommendations for various services we needed (painters, builders, electricians, etc). I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Adam and Wendy to all of my colleagues.

      - user68908 - Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Emerald Hills, CA.
    • We've now bought one house and sold one with the team of Adam & Wendy. To say that we're happy with our decision to work with them would be an understatement. They're very professional, ethical, smart, and knowledgeable about real estate in the area. Working with them, you really feel like you've got partners that are on your side, and it extends far beyond the simple transaction of buying or selling a house and into living and thriving in the Bay Area. They each bring valuable individual skills to the table. It's a dream team combo that we seriously doubt you'll find anywhere else. We bought our house in 2012. It was a six month process during which time we bid on three houses and went to countless more. During these six months, Wendy really got to know our tastes and we in turn got a sense of how good our agents were in terms of analyzing the pros and cons of each house and also predicting how the bidding would go when we decided to make offers. Our dream house, the one we bought, Wendy told us about two months before it even went on the market. She already knew that it was going to be the one for us! In the very competitive market of the Bay Area, you really want the best people on your side when you finally find the house, and when we got our bid together, we were confident that it would be perfect, and so it was. We got our house and almost every day after we were marveling to ourselves how lucky we were to get it! Even after we closed and moved in, Wendy would work with us to troubleshoot, remodel, share ideas, etc. It really went far beyond what we expected from a real estate agent. So it was a no-brainer that two years later, when we decided to sell an investment property, that we'd go back to the AW team. It took about a month to prep the house. We listed it at the price that they suggested. We were actually a bit worried that it was too high - it was an older house with some issues for which we went and got additional inspection reports. It ended up selling that week for over 20% more than list, with four offers, at a price in excess of most fancy shmancy new homes! Buying and selling a house were big deals for us, but working with agents that we could be comfortable with and trust made it utterly painless and actually pretty enjoyable. [Update] It's now five years later, and we still get their expert advice on things!

    • If I could give more stars I would! My husband and I could not be happier that we chose to work with Adam when searching for our first house after a friend's real estate agent recommended him. Working with him was wonderful. He's professional, personable, funny, responsive, smart and intuitive. We were able to trust him right away during a very intimidating process. He paid close attention to our specific needs and desires and helped us find our dream home. Without Adam's expert guidance and detailed attentiveness, I truly don't think we would have gotten the house we wanted. There were 6 offers, some higher than our own! Adam was extremely on the ball during the critical moments and gave us amazing advice all along the way. I truly believe that it was Adam's professionalism, sense of urgency, and keen advice that caused us to get the house despite there having been higher bids. I am forever grateful. We love our house! Our son and puppy are so happy here. We would work with the AW Team again in a heartbeat and recommend them highly to family and friends. Thank you, thank you, thank you, AW Team!!

    • I would recommend Wendy Kandasamy with gusto to any and all. She's thorough, prompt, dependable, clever, knowledgeable, adorable. Wendy is outstanding! Smart, savvy, ethical, untiring, dedicated, follows through: she cares for her clients whether they are buying or selling their property.

    • Adam and Wendy helped me buy my current home. This was my first time buying a house in the US but Adam & Wendy made it as easy as it could have been and I relied heavily on their local knowledge and expertise. Adam/Wendy spent a lot of time explaining the process to me and helped me to successfully close on the 2nd house I put a bid on which is pretty good going given the complexity of the Bay Area real estate market. We closed in 21 days and everything went smoothly and right on time. I would highly recommend Adam/Wendy to anyone looking for a no-nonsense experience to deliver the goods.

      - Noel Reidy - Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in East Palo Alto, CA.
    • Our family used the the team of Wendy Kandasamy, and Adam Touni to sell two homes in Palo Alto in 2012. With Wendy and Adam we got expert realty advice and multiple over asking price offers on both properties. Although I believe we could have gotten those two services from many realtors in this area the great care, attention to detail and kind thoughtfulness exhibited by these two sets this team apart. They are knowledgable, extremely competent, witty/fun and very responsive. They always got back to us immediately when we had a question or concern with great suggestions, in-depth answers, and a fabulous back up team able to get what needed to be accomplished done in a timely and professional fashion. We cannot recommend the team of Wendy and Adam more. When we next want to sell a house we will not hesitate to pick up the phone, or drop by their office to enlist their services again. Thanks so much Wendy and Adam! The Zander Family

    • We were originally looking for a Palo Alto Eicher... and Wendy is the expert for that. We selected her in part because she had bought and sold more Palo Alto Eichlers in our price range than any other agent. Wendy turns out to be highly knowledgeable on Eichlers, Palo Alto and other surrounding areas, has strong financial knowledge and in general knows everything that is going on.

    • OK, when my wife and I first met Adam, we were not exactly what you'd call real estate experts, or insiders, or anything like that. In fact, whenmy better half and I bought our first house, we got in over our head pretty quickly. We thought (don't laugh) that "hey... we'll just log on to Trulia, look at some open houses, and we'll be set!" Hardly. We found Adam through a friend, and Adam and Wendy were the best decision we could possibly have made. Adam bordered on magical as far as we were concerned. Concepts and deadlines that made no sense became clear. Adam and Wendy protected us from embarrassment (and from bad deals), and went so far above the call of duty it was hard to believe. They scoped out houses, really LISTENED to us, and our needs, and got us into what can only be described as our dream house. I sorta feel like I should write a bunch of Real Estate Terms about how Adam helped us understand the so-and-so form.. or how Wendy got us covered under the this-and-that. But honestly, none of that matters. They covered us 100 percent. The whole time. All the time. About everything. Example.. We bought an Eichler, and for the inspection, we went home and thought and read on the internet about all the things we were supposed to check. Then we called Adam and Wendy and said "Um... we'd like to have an inspector... and we'd like to look at the floor heat??" The response? "Yes. Not only do you need that stuff, we have already scheduled it and had it completed (we knew you'd need it) and we have the full results ready to go!" I love things where people anticipate my needs, and they are correct and just "handle it." Adam and Wendy quite simply handle it. They were not just our realtors, but they were (and are) our friends through this process. Now, if you are reading this, maybe you think we got lucky, and this was a one time thing. Nope. We have bought three other houses through Adam and Wendy since our first experience, and they kept the same high standard every time. Easy communication, and basically knowing what they are doing. These are the sort of people that when you call them nervous and confused, you hang up feeling like things are back on track and stuff is under control. We are hardly Real Estate experts at this point, but I like to think we can recognize expertise when we see it. These are experts, plain and simple. Thanks guys!!!!

    • Our experience with Adam Touni and his team at Zane MacGregor was outstanding, and we recommend his services without reservation. Adam assisted us with purchasing a new home and selling our old home, both in Redwood City. As a general matter, Adam is responsive, professional, efficient, and extremely knowledgeable about the market. He and his team made everything very easy for us on both the buy and sell side, coordinating with contractors, vendors, and more. Although I know Adam is very busy, he never made us feel like anything but his most important clients. On the buy side, Adam guided us through a very competitive market, providing sound advice not only on how to craft compelling (but reasonable) offers, but also on potential remodeling. We ended up purchasing the third (and in our opinion, best) house we bid on, in no small part due to his thoughtful recommendations. After we closed, Adam continued to assist us in coordinating the transfer of ownership and remodel projects that we decided to undertake. On the sell side, we barely needed to lift a finger. Adam and his assistant got our house in shape for showing under a compressed timeline and gave reasonable and informed advice about what improvements we ought to consider and inspections we ought to commission. Within a week of listing our house, we received multiple offers over list price and accepted the best one. We closed in just two weeks. At all phases of our experience, I appreciated that our family was being represented by someone who acts with integrity and who has the respect of his peers. Buying and selling homes can be a very personal and emotional process, but because of the superior client service we received from Adam and his team, it ended up being a smooth and pleasant one.

    • Adam and Wendy make a great team and I will recommend them to any of my friends looking for a home. Quick with responding to questions and helping a first time homeowner (like myself) not only get through the process, but understand it. I fully believe it was their personal touch that helped us get into a home in one of the most competitive markets in the count

    • When I first thought to sell my property in Palo Alto, Adam and Wendy recommended that I wait for a year. This was a great decision. By the time my house was ready the following summer, the market had risen dramatically. Adam and Wendy encouraged me to be patient and it really paid off. Also, they were far more interested in helping me make the best decision for my family rather than just making the sale, for which I am very grateful. Both Adam and Wendy have always been very thoughtful about the stresses and strengths of the market, particularly in Palo Alto/Mountain View area. They showed me houses in various possible price ranges and helped me see how quickly the market moves, particularly recently. Adam and Wendy were exceptional at calming my fears but also letting me make the final decisions. They were patient with me and helped me see many facets of the decision-making process rather than steam-rolling me into a choice that might not be the best for me. They also encouraged me to do things that I otherwise would not have (like writing the getting to know you letter). Adam and Wendy know many of the players here in real estate and the team worked tirelessly to press every angle so that I could get into my home. I am really, really grateful! Adam and Wendy sat me down and went over the entire process as well as all documents. Any questions I had, they would answer and if they did not know, they would say so and look up the answer to let me know later. That exemplifies these two; they are honest and straightforward. No detail is too small. They were very knowledgeable about the contracts and disclosures and explained the entire process from beginning to end. There are always hiccups and when those arose, Adam and Wendy were right there following through on everything. I would absolutely recommend Adam and Wendy. I have already worked with both Adam and Wendy as a team in several real estate transactions and I would highly recommend them as trusted Bay Area real estate professionals!

    • I am writing this review after living in our new house for a month. What can I say other than Adam and Wendy were wonderful to work with and I have no doubt that I am able to enjoy this house because of their expertise. They were there to answer any and all questions that my husband and I had - which were a lot because this was our first time purchasing a home. Even now, well after we've closed, Adam is quick to respond to emails with our questions. The Bay Area is a very competitive market and, as I said earlier, I do not believe we would have "won" the house, if not for their professionalism with placing an offer and experience with the market and other agents. I would recommend them to anyone interested in purchasing their first home or 10th home!

    • Without reservation, I highly recommend Adam & Wendy. I lived in the Bay Area for 5 yrs and had the good fortune to work with Adam & Wendy in both purchasing and selling our home in Mountain View. At this point, after having bought and sold many properties along the way, I can say that the AW team is a true gem, providing a real estate experience that is unmatched. As we worked through the sale of our home this Spring, from staging/prepping to completed sale, Adam and Wendy provided outstanding service and delivered results that exceeded our expectations. During each phase of the selling process, we received clear, practical advice that accounted for our specific situation and needs. In my mind, the piece that truly sets Adam and Wendy apart is that this great service is delivered with a personal touch and integrity that makes the process enjoyable. Given the intensity and stress of the Bay Area real estate market, having the AW team as your trusted partner is priceless.

After all of the suggested improvements and staging was completed in our home getting it ready to sell - we didn't even recognize it! It looked that good! Seriously, look no further if you are selling your home - the AW Team is the best!

    • We made all our house purchases with Adam and Wendy :) These range from an offer accepted at a very reasonable price among 10+ competitive offers, to a great off-market purchase. We've anonymously heard from multiple people (including some real estate agents) how good our recent purchase was, in terms of price w.r.t. concurrent neighborhood sales, timing and the location.They are knowledgeable about Palo Alto and Mountain View (other cities we can't comment). When given a house, whether it is in a single-overlay neighborhood, how well-built the area is, flood concerns, what would the city say about the trees in the lot... all sorts of questions we asked they give good answers quickly with relevant examples nearby. I felt they have a multiple-dimensional mental map of the area.They are prompt and responsive all the time. Very easy to talk with - both of them.They don't push decisions. Actually they occasionally did, and we really appreciated it months down the road.They continue to serve their clients even after the deal closes. Remodeling or rebuild? Comments on the floor plan? Sell or lease out? They always try their best to give valuable and well-thought-through feedback.Throughout these experience, we grew from IT engineers who barely know anything about the housing market to a couple who consider themselves somewhat knowledgeable about the area.
