Ray Martinez & Jennifer Martinez

Insurance Agency Owner
When I first consulted with Ray and Jennifer about purchasing a home in the Silicon Valley, they took the time to find out what was important to me. They were honest, strait-forward and provided great advice on helping me determine the best location and property. Skyrise is like having a Real Estate insider on your side.
My husband and I would like to thank Jennifer and Ray for their wonderful job! They are very knowledgable, hardworking, and easy to communicate. As buyers' agent, they really think for you. They went with us for every house that we were interested in, and they never pushed us on making any decisions. In fact, they were very cautious about bidding high. I highly recommend Ray and Jennifer, particularly for the first-time homeowner.

My husband and I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Ray and Jennifer for being such amazing agents: professional, hard-working, knowledgeable, kind, friendly, compassionate, patient yet determined. As first-time homebuyers, especially in this area, we came in with apprehension and endless questions. They were there every step of the way, answering all the questions we had and timely providing all the information we requested. Most importantly, they were always considerate of our needs and wishes. We are so very glad we met them!

Ray and Jennifer have earned our highest recommendation.

Incredible first-time home buyers, very excited to receive the keys to their new home!!!!
Head of Engineering
We were first time home buyers and Ray and Jennifer took us weekend after weekend to find our new home. When we finally found the right one, we were able to go in under asking and with contingencies, something I never thought we would be able to do, and still win it! Ray and Jennifer made it so easy to walk through the whole process!
Would like to thank Ray and Jennifer for getting us our new home. They were very patient and helped clarify each and every question we had throughout the process. They understood our needs and helped target the properties which best suited us and successfully negotiated the one which we liked.

Thanks again for all your help throughout this process.
Associate Manager of Production at Tesla
Jennifer provided outstanding personal and professional communication throughout the entire purchase process when I was looking for a home and has been there since the purchase to help me with any questions.

She went out of her way to find me homes to view and helped me deal with loan agents, realtors and mortgage reps and I appreciate all the help.

Thank you!!!
Home buyer
I had been looking for a place for quite a while before I met Ray and Jennifer but I ended up buying the first place they recommended to me (which was great). They listened to what I needed, helped me through the process, and were very responsive. Thank you!
Buying your first house can be a scary and confusing endeavor. Luckily, Jennifer and Ray were able to ease a lot of the fears I had before starting this process. They answered all my questions (and many will come up) patiently, took the time to show me houses that were in line with what I was looking for in my dream home, were very organized, and helped me to negotiate the purchase of my home in a very competitive market.

I would absolutely recommend Jennifer and Ray to anyone looking for a genuinely honest, professional and reliable team.

Ray and Jennifer were great during the whole process. Buying a home isn't always easy and at times can seem a bit stressful, but they were very patient and helpful. Distance is not a problem for them, even though they are based out of San Jose they would always make themselves available whenever I wanted to see listings in Hayward.
Ray and Jennifer definitely went the extra mile for us! As first time home buyers, we were unsure if we could find a home within our budget and in a neighborhood we liked. Ray and Jennifer helped us understand the realities of the Silicon Valley market and patiently answered all our many questions and concerns. Thanks to their dedication and perseverance, we were able to get a house that met our needs.

Ray and Jennifer is the dream team!
These two are amazing and have definitely set the bar.

Thanks Ray and Jennifer for all your hard work and dedication, we couldn't have done it without you both. You rock!

Technology Consultants / First time home buyers
We met Ray at a house he had listed. We were first time home buyers and Ray patiently answered all our questions about the home buying process, contingencies, and the real-estate market and trends. Although, we didn't end up putting an offer on that house but with Ray and Jennifer's help, we were able to get our first offer accepted and will be moving to our new home very soon.

We would strongly recommend them. They are experienced, professional and, most importantly, they were always available to answer (and re-answer) any questions that we had. They made the whole process very easy.

Thank you again guys for helping us find our first home!
Full time mom
Two amazing people to work with, very patient, very helpful, really nice always there when you need them, to be honest they are the best, thank you so much for all your time and dedication!
We are so glad to have met Ray and Jennifer. By closely working together, they gracefully guided us through a home buying adventure, providing all the required clarifications and assistance.
We met Ray and Jennifer at a "coming soon" house and they helped us with our questions as we are the first time home buyers. They helped us to learn about home buying process and explained very well on contingencies. They both are always available and happy to answer our questions and we were finally able to purchase the house with their help. We strongly recommend them.
Dear Ray and Jennifer,
Thank you so much for finding our daughter her first home. With very few listings in her price range (low!), you were able to locate a perfect move-in ready condo, and in only a few weeks! With your knowledgeable advice, she was able to make the purchase quickly, at an acceptable price, while beating out several other bids. She moved in yesterday and everyone can tell she will be happy in her new home. Thank you again!
New Homeowner
Ray and Jennifer did a fantastic job of finding my wife and me a home within two months (first meeting to close), getting us into a desirable neighborhood, *and* negotiating a price that was under the bank appraisal. To top it off, they always responded to texts/emails/calls within a couple hours at the most, and walked me through every contract, contingency, and mortgage question I had. Really couldn't ask for anything more.
We met Jennifer and Ray at an Open House for a home they were selling in our neighborhood. We did not have an agent representing us and we received a warm welcome by Jennifer. We were impressed by her knowledge, friendliness and down to earth conversations which answered all our questions about the home without any sales pressure whatsoever. The next day we returned and met Ray who also was very personable and a professional with many years of experience in Real Estate industry. We decided we could put our faith in Jennifer/Ray to represent us along with the seller. This breaks all the recommendations of traditional real estate that claims you need to have your own agent. Ray/Jennifer won our confidence and proved that they could represent both sides fairly and came to a WIN/WIN for both the seller and the buyers. The entire process was made very easy as the awesome husband/wife team responded to all questions immediately and guided us through the mountains of paperwork with ease. We are truly appreciative of all the Jennifer and Ray did to close on this deal and make both parties extremely happy with the outcome. They are a super awesome team together and we were blessed to get to know them personally and professionally through this process. We would HIGHLY recommend them to a friend.

Ray and Jennifer went above and beyond to make the house buying experience as least stressful and complicated as possible. Ray took the time to listen to my input, and I felt he was putting my concerns above the rest. Jennifer was very comprehensive and thorough in searching for properties that matched my strict criteria. I felt they were an excellent team during this first homeowner's experience, and would readily recommend them to anyone feeling overwhelmed by the process. Thanks again Ray and Jennifer!

Ray and Jennifer helped me sell my home in San Jose and I can't express how grateful I feel to have found them. They are extremely knowledgeable and professional and made what could have been an overwhelming and daunting task smooth and easy. I was thrilled. Their excellent advice and hard work definitely brought results. The house. not only sold quickly but also for top value!! Thank you Ray and Jennifer!!!
Green Energy and Smart Cities Consultant
Ray and Jennifer did a great job for us. Got our house sold within two weeks and helped us negotiate a good price. It was important to get the deal done since we were moving and needed to get settled in our new place. After all the inspections were done and the furniture moved out, they managed an open house for us. The house was shown on one weekend and several bidders were lined up by Wednesday. After negotiations we reached an agreement and closed the deal.

Buying a home in Silicon Valley is not an easy task ! Luckily I came across Jennifer and Ray, they are the best in their class. I can easily say that I would have not been able to purchase a home without their help. The perseverance they showed is amazing, even after being beaten out on 30-40 offers we put (thanks to all the cash offers!) eventually the sunshine came into our street, I was skeptical after a while but they made it happen, I can't thank enough for all their effort.
We were finally able to purchase our house thanks to a lot of Grace, and the hard work of Ray and Jennifer. We are so happy with our new home. When we started our search we did think it was possible to find a house that met our budget and the criteria of a an inclusive and safe neighborhood close to public transit and the University. At a moment when other realtors did not take us seriously, Ray and Jennifer stepped up and guided us through a very challenging market. They stuck with us and we kept looking until we found a great place and they helped to make it happen. They love their job, and it shows. They show up rain or shine, and do a great job working together as a couple.
