The wisdom of Gandhi and these profound words of Swami Vivekananda guided my life when it came time to leave my homeland: “We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions,it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how and when to act.”

Immigrating to the United States was not a choice – it was a necessity. While India provided everything my family needed to live happily, my oldest son has cerebral palsy, and needed the medical treatment only America could provide. Despite the financial and emotional burden, we approached our circumstances without regret, knowing a family member needed help. For me, there is no stronger bond than family, and I bring this approach to my profession. I get excited about the prospect of helping people find the home of their dreams. To me, they are just like family!

Growing up, our house was constantly filled with excitement.My father, a prominent attorney, always brought clients home. My siblings and I often had no idea who the visitors were, but we were expected to treat them like close relatives. My father business was based on one fundamental thought. Borrowing a line from Gandhi’s autobiography, he would often say, “a customer is our most important visitor. He is not dependant on us. We are dependent on him.” I hold this concept close to my heart and practice its principles in my career. I sincerely care about each and every client.

RE/MAX provides professional marketing services that compliment my approach by providing brochures, photographs of listings, internet listings, and personal web pages. This allows me to focus all my energy on customer service. I strive to make every real estate transaction pleasant and memorable, which is why 90% of my business comes from referrals and repeat business. By helping other families find just the right home in which to build memories of a life-time, my work isn’t work at all. It’s taking care of family! I hope to be a part of that process for a long time to come!

An engineer in India, T.R. Viswanathan made the life-altering decision to

move his family to America to seek better medical treatment for his

eldest son who has cerebral palsy. For T.R., it has been a constant uphill

struggle to support his wife and two children, while learning the different

customs of the United States. Aided by his competency, dedication, and

compassion, the result of his warm upbringing in India, he was able

to assimilate the American culture and thrive in its opportunities. Soon

after joining RE/MAX Suburban, he became recognized as a top achiever.

T.R. has not forgotten his humble beginnings and contributes to various

humanitarian causes in India. T.R. always gives his best – making him the

Hall of Fame star he is today!
