What Our Clients Say...

I've never sold a house and had only the vaguest idea of the logistical and emotional impact involved. Mario Ramirez pretty much held my hand through what was one of the largest and scariest events in my life. He is a combination of frank, realistic, reassuring, encouraging, professional, and knowledgeable.

But, most importantly, he knew how to SELL MY HOUSE. He set out a plan of how to position my house in the marketplace and a plan for what I had to do to prepare my house for listing. There were only 8 days between me signing the agreement to list until the broker's tour. Mario, his team and I went on full-throttle hustle. I got an offer 7 days after the broker's tour, which I attribute to Mario's astute positioning of my house in the market. But here's where the rubber hits the road -- and why I was glad Mario was representing me: Early on in the (short) escrow, there was the start of a big problem and he immediately nipped it in the bud and got things back on track. My house sold within the original number of escrow days and happy ending. -- PB, San Jose, CA

My wife and I recently purchased a home and sold our condo with Mario representing us. I'll start with the home purchase. Mario was very patient with us while we looked at properties. He took us to multiple properties and he has the technology to send listings to your email so that you can look at them on your own time. I felt very informed and powerful when negotiating since I knew what else was on the market. Mario is also very honest and straight forward. I never felt mislead or misinformed. When we finally found something we liked that was in our price range, we jumped on it. And, so did Mario. He is relentless in pursuing your interests! He never gave up, even when our offer wasn't initially accepted. And, when it finally was accepted through some negotiating, he worked to help get us the best deal for financing. During the process, Mario was always available via phone and email and is easy to contact. Also, Mario is very connected through the community and can help you with contractors, designers, architects, and anything else you need. Now, for selling our condo. I sincerely feel he got us the best deal possible. We were listed for less than 1 week and had multiple offers, over asking price. He helped us design the website and take pictures for the listing. Our condo looked like a model home! It was amazing! I could not recommend Mario more and I feel like our home purchasing/selling experience was as painless as possible. -Gus Preiss, San Jose, CA

Like many others, my wife and I found ourselves at that point in our lives where we needed to downsize. Mario was a client of mine and we had several conversations regarding real estate over the years. I already knew he was knowledgeable and I needed a realtor that would cut through the bull and communicate the bottom line so I could make an educated decision. My wife needed someone sensitive enough to help navigate her through this emotional journey. Mario was that and so much more. His recommendations for pre-marketing details were spot on. He personally met with all the inspectors and contractors, which was important to me. He hosted every open house, not an associate that we did not know which was extremely important to my wife. When it came time to enter negotiations Mario represented me like it was his own home. Ultimately we received the offer and terms we were looking for and entered escrow that proved problem free. My wife and I were both happy to turn the keys over to a young family that could enjoy many years of happiness in our home. - Tony DiPiero, Saratoga Resident

We just bought our first home and Mario was extremely helpful and his commitment to our needs was unwaivering. At all times I knew he had our best interests in mind and he was aggressive in getting us a great deal. Additionally, there were several times when he would meet with us over the weekend or late at nights to accommodate our schedules. He also provided us with research and analysis on the local real estate trends. These were very informative and we used them to help us narrow down the locations where we wanted to buy our home. I would absolutely recommend Mario to anyone in the Valley looking to buy or sell. I know that when we are ready to move on he will be the first person we call. - Keith C., San Jose, CA

I hired Mario Ramirez as my realtor in 2006 when I bought my first home. If you've never bought a home before, Mario is the Realtor you want. He demystified the entire home buying process, and helped me find an excellent home in a fantastic school district. As an Estate Planning Attorney, I regularly have clients ask me who I recommend to help them with their real estate purchases, and I tell them "Mario Ramirez is the best"!! – John Fraker

“Not only did we profit more than we anticipated, we closed escrow within 45 days which was crucial in our situation. Mario made the next chapter in our life a smooth one. Mario and his Team exceeded our expectations.” – Roger & Donna Baird, Retired GE Nuclear Division

I purchased my first home with Mario and couldn't be happier. He was easy to work with, prompt, responsive, knowledgeable, and creative. He kept me informed throughout the entire process without being overbearing or pushy. Not only did he hook me up with a great lender but he hired an electrician to change a light-switch for me that was outdated. I will definitely work with Mario again when I buy my second home! - Dianna Jouan. San Jose, CA

I was a first-time home buyer when Mario helped me purchase my condo last year, and the experience couldn't have been easier and more enjoyable. Mario is patient, kind, knowledgeable, efficient and hard-working. I had those days when I would be discouraged because I thought I would never find the right place. But Mario always had a positive attitude and would simply tell me, "We'll keep looking! Don't worry about it!" Sometimes when you are down in the dumps just hearing someone be positive like that is very reassuring. When it came time to write an offer on a place, Mario made the process effortless for me. He had all the paperwork ready for me to sign. He put me in touch with a magical lender. And, he negotiated tirelessly on my behalf. He may look laid back on the outside, but the wheels are spinning fast on the inside!! In this real estate market, you want to have someone in your corner who you know will go above and beyond for you--Mario's your guy!!! – Maggie Salama

I met Mario Ramirez in October 2013 when I decided to sell my home. He received the highest recommendation by a close friend of mine. I've lived in the same home in Los Gatos for 27+ years and the idea of relocating was extremely emotional since I had to pack up a life time of memories during the Christmas holidays. Mario immediately took charge of every aspect of the design and remodel while making sure I was informed and comfortable with the plans. Mario quickly proved that he is a one-stop shop and can achieve any task big or small without breaking a sweat. Not only did I get an extremely talented Real Estate Broker, he became a negotiator, general contractor, and project manager simultaneously. As if that wasn't enough, he hired packers, landscaper's, movers and even made sure my dog was safe during the entire process. Once the house was listed, he continued to work round the clock to get me the best price possible and soon had multiple offers resulting in a very fast sales cycle with a higher price than anticipated. I strongly recommend Mario for all your real estate needs; he will exceed your expectations – Dr. Jim Thompson

I have worked with Mario over the years in purchasing homes and getting loans. He is very direct and cuts thru the red tape when dealing with the sellers and lenders. You want something done quickly with good results, go to Mario. He does not play the middle, he is always on your side with your best interests at heart. More than anything, he is as trustworthy as you are going to get. Extremely patient and very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. As long as I have him representing me, I don't have to worry about a thing. He takes care of business and works at your desired pace. Highly recommended! - Ernesto J. San Jose, CA

I recently had to sell my condo and got 2 realtors recommended to me as well as Mario through an acquaintance of mine. I always get 3 estimates whenever I make a decision as big as choosing the right real estate agent. After meeting with all three realtors Mario was by far the best. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the current trends in the market, gave me great recommendations on how to prepare my home for sale as well as what to expect from prospective buyers, and told me if I chose him he would work tirelessly to sell my home. I'm so happy I chose Mario. He put my condo up for sale and I had multiple offers within 2 weeks!! One of the offers was the asking price and within 45 days my condo was sold. I couldn't believe it. From the initial introduction to the final signature and handshake my experience with Mario was great. He brought a level of knowledge and professionalism to the selling process that I had previously never experienced with any other realtor. I recommend Mario to all my friends and family. I can't recommend him enough. – Eric McDonald
