We were so fortunate to have found Ramesh Rao to help us buy our home in Cupertino, CA. He was a joy to work with - pleasant, explained clearly what was going on and is extremely knowledgeable about the local market. Particularly during this COVID Pandemic, where there is uncertainty everywhere, Ramesh ensured that we felt comfortable all throughout the process. As our Realtor, Ramesh helped find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He was patient and accommodated all our questions and requests to visit the properties and worked with us in making reasonable offers that stood out. He spent time to understand our needs as working parents of two very young kids who want everything closeby, and in every house we visited called out what works for us and what doesn't. In short, he was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Ramesh was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house in the Bay Area.

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.

Ramesh Rao, Realtor with Coldwell Banker was appointed by me to sell 6226 Bothell Circle, San Jose, CA 95123 around the beginning of the year 2020. The house was a rental and the tenants left on December 31 and the house was in a state of diisrepair. It was left in terrible condition and I had moved to New York and I asked Ramesh to help me fix it and sell it.
Ramesh undertook the challenge and organized multiple activities to make the property sellable. He interviewed contractors and picked the best one who undertook the project and rebuilt the interior with proper building permits and made the home pleasant and livable again in record time by March 2020. Ramesh refused to take any shortcuts and insisted that investing in rebuilding the home would fetch its own rewards!
Just then the pandemic broke! Ramesh was left with the arduous challenge of selling the home at a time when “SHELTER IN PLACE ORDERS” were in place. Ramesh organized staging and virtual tours of the home so that buyers could get the feel of the place even though they were unable to actually see the home.
Ramesh persisted and found a buyer in spite of all the difficulties. His efforts paid off and he was able to sell the property for a very fair and equitable price!
Kudos to Ramesh. Honest and Trustworthy Realtor. I would recommend him to all my friends with real estate needs.

Hiring Ramesh has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. He’s local to the South Bay so he’s got extensive knowledge about the area and has a stellar team to assist him. He’s always extremely responsive whether by text, email or phone and he’s available pretty much at all hours. He’s flawless in his execution when it comes to the step by step process of selling a home. I will most definitely refer him to anyone and everyone that wishes to sell or buy a home.

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
I worked with Ramesh Rao on a 1031 exchange, selling my Condo in Milpitas and
purchasing a house in Livermore. The process is a lot more complicated than just buying
or selling a house.
Ramesh helped close the sale after doing multiple open house events as the market
was slow. He also helped stage the condo and it was done very well. The condo was
well advertized through various methods. Through the loan process with the buyer,
there were some complications and delays on the buyer's side and Ramesh was on
top of the issues. Due to the buyer's loan delays the house closed 3 weeks later than
original plan. He managed to keep the pressure on the buyers through their agents
and provided them with contacts of alternate loan agents.
On the 1031 buying side, we saw the house and bid on the property. There were 3
bidders and Ramesh was very proactive and guided us through the process. He managed
to sweeten the pot with the sellers in a multiple bid scenario through non-financial
methods to secure the house for us.
Thanks Ramesh for your help.
