What Clients Are Saying

I recently had the pleasure working with Ramesh who is very knowledgeable about the market, highly responsive to questions and needs, professional in negotiation, amazing as well as professional at communication. I truly enjoyed the… escrow process and certainly look forward to working with him again in the future!

Sally Xiao, Saratoga

Ramesh recently sold our house in San Jose. He was a consummate professional and a real pleasure to work with! He quickly assessed the property and recommended repairs/work that would help sell the house without going overboard. He even helped us donate a piano to a deserving family. He adeptly handled all aspects of the sale including; sourcing contractors, inspections, disclosures, all the marketing, buyer vetting and negotiations. We agreed with all of his recommendations and the house was sold quickly and with no drama. We highly recommend Ramesh to any real estate buyers or sellers!

Brenda P, San Jose

Without question you are a true professional that takes care of all of the needs of your clients.

Congrats to you for an awesome journey into the selling of my five properties.  Stay safe and the
very best.

Dr. Leonard Cook - Los Altos, CA

Ramesh, we lived in our Cupertino home for 17 years. Leaving it was not easy. So much left behind as the family grew and moved on. Remodeling was not simple because I wanted to give it at its best. Fortunately YOU had all the right people to work on it. Most of all YOU were there to monitor and track everything... dates and progress of the work must come together as planned because we were short of time. I was already working far from home then. It felt like a thorn was pulled out of my being. We were very successful. We were very content with the result. You helped me prepare and be ready to give it up. I was very happy. 

Then came the purchase on a new home in a new place. Since this will most likely be our retirement home, we have all the specifications embracing the ambiance for "golden years" . 

It was tough because we do not know the place very well and no friends who actually live in the city we chose. Through your company I obtained a weekly list of all houses for open homes and for sale in the city and nearby communities. It made my search easy and organized. Of course I also used the internet. 

This last purchase through no fault of our party was the toughest we have encountered. When we sold our house you emphasized to declare everything that i know, even though it may seem trivial as it may be important for the buyer. If only the seller did their part this way, it would have been a breeze. You were there for us. You drove this far and stayed all day for the complete inspection of the house; listening with us to the detailed findings of the inspector. You coached us how to take care of the problems from the inspection. When trouble came on the last minute, you were there all the way. It took days to settle the problem. You sought help from your company day and night to insure our safety with the deal. Relentlessly your worked. You did not falter or succumb until we got what we wanted and what was rightfully for us. I can't imagine if your were not there, if it was someone else. 

I thank God for guiding us in choosing you. 
Thank you Anita for allowing Ramesh to give all the time to visit and discuss with us day or night whenever we can come home to Cupertino. Thank you for sharing the comfort of your home during those times. 

So I recommended you to my sister and you sold her house. Then she recommended you to her son and he bought a house. You are not just a friend to clients. You are a family too because you do care. I know we can trust you. Nothing can beat that.

Grace Ang, MD - Cupertino

First let me start by stating this was my first time selling a home and buying a home at the same time. It can be an extremely stressful and daunting experience. I interviewed 7 agents and Ramesh stood out instantly. Where do I start. First, he's extremely pleasant with a calm demeanor. He walked through every stage of the process and really made sure I understood all of the steps from beginning to end. Each time during his initial presentation he would stop to see if I had any questions, and truly didn't leave a detail out. So many of the other agents just drop off their fancy book and don't even take the time to crack it open to explain the data and details behind the sale. He really made me feel like I was in good hands and that he wanted only the best for me. He was always so prompt with replies whether it was via text, e-mail, or phone. He made me feel like I was his top priority. He really has his finger on the pulse when it comes to the market, your potential buyers and the best way to get top dollar. He walked me through steps before they happened, so nothing was ever a surprise. He also has a great team. From his assistant Glendora who was always on top of her game, to his inspectors and escrow offer. I was guided through each step of the process with such ease and professionalism across the board. Even after the sale he checked in multiple times to see how I was doing, and even let me know of a package that had been lost in transport for 2 months and finally was delivered to my old home. I was able to pick it up at his house and we spent some time catching up. Again, making me feel like he was more of a friend than an agent. I don't anticipate ever selling again, but I would most definitely refer him to anyone and everyone who is looking to sell or buy a home. Who knows, if I win the lottery, I'll be buying up lots of homes, and Ramesh will definitely be my agent of choice.

P. Campbell - Sunnyvale

Ramesh helped us buy our first house in a seller's market. He always made it a point to spend the time to answer every question we had and walked us through the entire process in a detailed manner, without making you feel rushed. At the end of the day, we are happy that our first home buying experience was smooth and professionally managed by Ramesh!

We got our first home in USA with the help of Ramesh Rao in 1994. Ramesh understood our requirements, budget and other considerations and showed us a few homes in Cupertino and Sunnyvale area. As we dealt with him, both I and my wife found him honest, straight forward and always giving priority to our requirements. Our children became friendly with him too. In a relatively short period, we zeroed in on the house. Ramesh helped us close the deal, getting us finance and guided through the paperwork. We happily lived in that house for 17 years and a few years back sold it three times over its cost. 

Nandita and Prabhath, Milpitas, CA

We were excited when we found out that he has resumed his career in real estate, and plan to recommend him to any of our friends who are looking to buy or sell.

We have known Ramesh for 15 years. Our family is blessed he is our neighbor, firiend and family. He is highly intelligent, very knowledgeable, organized and always pleasant to speak to. He remains humble and trustworthy. He helps in anyway he can at anytime. Most recently he helped me find someone to sell my house which is far from his territory.

I strongly recommend Ramesh without any reservation. I am certain he will serve you and he wont fall short of your expectations. He is the "GUY TO GO TO"

Thank you for the great job you did on the buyer side in our transaction together Ramesh. I will be referring you when the opportunity arises for Silicon Valley transactions and I hope we have the opportunity to do more smooth transactions together in the future. :-)

Melody Russell Realtor

Ramesh and I knew each other from us working at the same tech company years back. I used to receive his periodic emails on real estate issues which were incredibly valuable. Recently we decided to move to the Bay Area and I decided to reach out to Ramesh. That was the best decision I made. Ramesh really is a down to earth and going out of the way to help you person. A genuine and transparent person that during this process became a lot closer to him. My wife also really liked him and grew to trust him to a very high comfort level. I wish him the very best and look forward to seeing him and his family regularly!

Sunil Bharitkar, Scotts Valley, CA

Ramesh is a trail Blazer. He is NOT the run-of-the-mill realtor. He is thorough, systematic and methodical. His biggest attributes are perseverance and diligence to get his clients the best deal and bring them over the finish line.  

We engaged with Ramesh to secure our dream home. Ramesh had multiple meetings to understand our situation and provide insights and guidance. He is NOT pushy. He tailor-made scouts on MLS and also off-market properties because of his position at Coldwell Bankers and his vast network.  

When we found the home we liked, he represented us so well that it resonated and connected with the seller-side. He prepared letters and made a case for why we should be considered seriously. Our offer was on the low side but he managed to hold the fort by connecting with the sellers on a personal level while working with us on what best could be done to win the deal. I would call this a diving catch against all odds and is a testament to his commitment and determination to win for his clients. 

Ramesh has an amazing style and a finesse that is impressive. He is soft and gentle yet persistent and will hold your back. The actual work of a realtor happens behind-the-scene and all the ground work, preparation and networking. 

We are very grateful to Ramesh and wish him the best. We have NO hesitation to refer him along and will continue to do so. Thanks Ramesh!!!

Anonymous. Happy home owner

Ramesh was very helpful and made the selling of my property extremely fast and easy. He referred me to many experts to help me make my home ready for sale. He was always available if I had any questions and gave me great suggestions.

Michael Newman. Retired , Sunnyvale, CA

We selected Ramesh as our listing agent and were completely happy with his professionalism and personal integrity. His pulse of the market is spot on and got is into the contract within days of our listing and with an offer above our listing price. His attention to every detail and marketing of the property was of the highest caliber. From staging to professional photography to video and print advertising, Ramesh brought in the very best vendors for a successful sale. We recommend him as an excellent agent that will guide you throughout the sales process.
