New to Compass, Lakshmi Sathyanarayana brings with her a wealth of experience as a Senior Real Estate Specialist from Keller Williams Realty to Cupertino, Saratoga, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, San Jose and the greater South Bay Area/Peninsula.
With a background in Civil Engineering, Lakshmi’s path to real estate began while helping realtors bring greater value to their clients through home loans. Hoping to advance her career, while also enjoying the process of helping home buyers find their dream house and maximizing sale prices for home sellers, Lakshmi decided to invest herself fully in real estate. Lakshmi particularly finds fulfillment in helping her clients make informed decisions during the buying & selling process, in addition to working on 1031 exchanges for investment properties.
Lakshmi works with both first time home buyers and those who buy/sell multiple investment properties. The combination of her Civil Engineering background—which helps her understand buildings and structures at a deeper level—alongside her experience in real estate finance helps Lakshmi bring a unique and insightful approach to her clients.
When Lakshmi isn’t working with her clients, she is a dedicated wife and mother. She enjoys traveling the world, hiking, zip-lining, cardio & weight training, playing chess, learning new activities, attending concerts, and cooking traditional and healthy vegetarian dishes.
Lakshmi uses her love of music as a means with which to bring the community together and raise money for causes that speak to her. She has organized a fundraiser to help financially disadvantaged, meritorious engineering students at her alma mater, University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering in India. She’s worked with the local Indian community center to offer more support services for seniors, women and children affected by sex trafficking in India, as well as for children with special needs. Most recently, she co-chaired a banquet for the Sri Shankara Cancer Foundation in Bangalore and raised $168,000 to offer free treatment for about 30 underprivileged cancer patients in India. Over the past 5 years, Lakshmi has helped raise about $600,000 for these causes.
Lakshmi is a seasoned Senior Real Estate Specialist & an amazing negotiator who is quality-conscious and passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of her clients. She is especially excited about her association with Compass in Palo Alto and hopes to help many more of her clients in the South Bay & the Peninsula to build real estate portfolios that will allow them to profit even when they’re sleeping.
