    Balaji Badrinath is hoest, reliable, courteous, reasonable, knowlegeable, professional and a thorough gentleman. It was a blessing to find a realtor like him in Bengaluru to assist us in the sale of a property. I would highly recommend Balaji Badrinath and his folks at Coldwell Banker Value Add Realty for any real estate transaction in Bengaluru and other areas in his jurisdiction. Living in the USA and having near zero knowledge of property transaction process in Bengaluru, Balaji guided us through the process methodically and with clarity, working at our pace with cadence calls, information, professional advice and guidance. Thank you Balaji and the team at Value Add Realty !
