Biren & Kathryn’s
“The day-to-day of finding a house in California is really difficult — and I would even say depressing.”
After six months of living with his family in corporate housing, Biren and his wife, Kathryn, just about had it. They decided to focus all their energy on finding a dream home they could make their own.
“We were very qualified buyers, but we dealt with a lot of failure. We were knocking on doors for many months trying to find our dream home in the right neighborhood. We were desperate for an edge.”
Biren’s experience, while extreme, is all too relatable.
Everything changed when his real estate agent, Alex Narodny, told Biren about Aalto.
“Once I learned about Aalto, I started seeing inventory that I wasn’t seeing on the MLS.”
But Aalto really clicked for Biren when he started noticing that homes appeared on Aalto weeks before the other sites if the homes made it to the other sites at all. (The best homes sell quickly on Aalto, but some later move to the MLS.)
“On Aalto, I always had first-look at the best homes so I had a chance to make offers before everyone else. No more picked-over homes on Zillow and Trulia!”
When asked if he’d recommend Aalto to other serious buyers, Biren answered simply.
“I can’t think of a good reason not to give Aalto a shot. It’s a new concept. It’s a new way of doing business on a real estate purchase.”
