When my husband and I decided to move, we knew there was no better choice than Ray Henson to help us with the sale of our home. He is honest and trustworthy, and he worked very hard to help us get top dollar in a short amount of time. We did things a little backwards and put an offer on a new home out of state before we even started preparing our California house for sale. Ray was up for the task and helped us get completely ready for the sale (no small undertaking) in record time. Because of Ray, we were able to meet our timeline and goals. He's an amazing real estate agent and a wonderful person. I highly recommend him for anyone who needs to either buy or sell a home.

Raymond Henson helped us prepare my mother-in-law’s home for sale. He and his wife, Mary Margaret, helped us clean out the house and helped us with the estate sale. Tom and I did not no where or how to start so Ray’s experience and help made us feel less overwhelmed. Ray helped sell the house in less than three months! He gave us a timeline of what to expect next and explained if we did not understand. An awesome realtor!!!

Ray Henson was an absolute professional with our extensive house hunt search, he listened carefully to what we were looking for and was quick to respond to any of our requests. We really appreciated the approach Ray had, he was patient and generous in helping us hunt out our new home. We never felt rushed or pressured to settle, finding us the right place was his goal. We felt so confident in having Ray represent us, that we also enlisted his help in selling our home while we were traveling. We listed on a Thursday with the gorgeous photos of our home Ray had taken, and were happy to come home to multiple offers on the following Tuesday. We highly recommend Ray Henson - he is the best kind of Real Estate Agent; he sincerely cares about his clients needs exclusively, rather than being anxious to close a deal.

It would be difficult to overstate how grateful we are for all that Ray has done for us. From the beginning, we were impressed by his work ethic, knowledge and skill, and yet he still managed to outdo himself in the months we worked together. Though we had our hearts set on a competitive neighborhood and an even more competitive price point, Ray was not one to be discouraged-- meeting with us frequently, putting together multiple offers, and finally helping us close on the home of our dreams.

Though we were first-time homebuyers with a modest budget, Ray never made us feel pressured to settle quickly or increase our budget beyond what we could afford. His concern with our ability to comfortably live with our purchase was encouraging, and he backed up this concern with constant communication with our lender and assurances that we could take all the time we needed to make a choice that worked for us. Though there were times when the process was difficult, Ray was a consistent source of knowledge and patience that guided us every step of the way.

Ray's dedication and professionalism routinely amazed us, and he juggled the demands of our lender, contractor, and seller's agent with grace and excellent results. We could not be happier with our choice, both in the home we now own and the realtor who made it happen. We cannot recommend Ray highly enough!

Ray Henson represented us well as we were completing a 1031 property exchange. He listened to what we were looking for and targetted properites that met our needs. We found a house quickly and he negotiated all that was necessary while we were out of the country. Communication is great and response to needs exceptional We would highly recommend his services for buying or selling real estate.

I hired Ray to sell a house for me in Stockton. It was a house owned by my Step-Father, who had passed away, without a will or clear instructions on what he wanted done. The house went through probate with 16 beneficiaries. Ray worked with the lawyer guiding the estate through probate and interacted with several beneficiaries. He was great, he made the whole process understandable and ultimately proved invaluable in getting the house sold. With every new problem we had, he found a solution so we could move on and get across the goal line. I could not recommend Ray enough, he is a Realtor with broad knowledge and integrity. He is the best that I have worked with.

Ray Henson represented our interests in the sale of our home with highest integrity, professionalism, and care. He made each step of selling our home easy and with no complications or worry. It was such a pleasure working with Ray. His positive attitude and humble nature is extremely unique. So, much so, that I didn't hesitate to refer his expertise to several of my family members.

Ray is one of the most honest and hardworking people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. As a young person shopping for their first home there were a lot of people that doubted my husband and I, ray never did that! He is knowledgeable and honest, when he takes you to see a home he knows everything there is to know about it and if there is something he doesn't he will go out of his way to find the answer! Hands down ray is the best realtor I've ever met, I can't wait until we buy our next home so we can utilize his skills again!

Just a quick note to say that I would highly and enthusiastically recommend Ray to any of my friends seeking to purchase a home. I am totally blind and have no way of reading through the copious documents one must sign throughout the home buying process. Ray took a great deal of time to read and explain each of the docunents I was to sigh. He went way out of his way to help me and my wife purchase our mobile home. He even drove out to where my wife is currently staying to make it easy for her to sign the necessary paperwork. In addition to all of this, Ray is just a good guy. I wish to thank him for making the process as painless as possible.

Let me first say my family and I have known Ray for about 8 years and he has always had a great demeanor. When we decided to purchase a home we could have picked any realtor we wanted but we decide to go with Ray Henson for the simple fact that we knew he would be completely honest about the process, the cost and everything in between. He took the time to answer all our questions in a clear and understandable manner, as first time home buyers we had alot.
I would absolutely recommend Ray for anyone who wants a realtor who will look out for your best interest and will give you 100% as your realtor during your home purchase.

Not knowing what kind of recommendations were being requested, I thought I would cover the three that came to mind. Ray as a person is as good as it gets! Of the many people I have meet in my lifetime, I cannot think of anyone more fair, honest, personable and on I could go. Ray the paint contractor, best in Sacramento area hands down. Did over 30 jobs for me in twenty years plus of my contracting career. My clients loved his professionalism and the quality of him and his crew. Ray the Realtor is also the best realtor in town. When it came time to sell my house in June, Ray was the first one I called. As a former agent, I thought I knew it all, but Ray proved me wrong with a great marketing plan and advertising, both things got me top of market price and a qualifed buyer in less than a month. I wasted the first 2 weeks of the listing by not listening to his advice to begin with. If it isn't apparent already, Ray is about the finest person and professional I know.

Having know Ray previously as a friend, I knew we would have a very honest and dedicated realtor with excellent communication skills. As it turned out, Ray also knew the market well and was very helpful with our house selling in a unique area of Elk Grove. Selling our house was not a simple transaction! His creative suggestions proved invaluable and very much appreciated. I confidently say Ray Henson will always act in his clients best interest and fully recommend him to family, friends, and others in need of a realtor!

Ray Henson has been a Godsend! He not only helped get our old home ready to sell but he also helped us find our new home! He has gone above and beyond what any realtor should be doing. Half of the things we needed help with he did them himself. He is a kind and caring man who is a true friend when you need him. Now that we have lived in our home for 3 months, he has not forgotten us. We have required some additional help with new home issues and he was right there again. If you are searching for a home or need help selling, I highly recommend him to the fullest!!

I met Ray Henson at a real estate conference a few years ago and, we immediately hit it off. Ray and I share an interest in creative real estate investing and although he is in California, and I am in Washington, I call him regularly to seek out his advice and counsel on real estate deals and challenges I’m experiencing. I can always count on Ray to listen intently, ask probing questions, and provide sound advice.

Most importantly, I like to do business with and associate with people I KNOW, LIKE, AND TRUST, and Ray fits squarely in all three categories! I wouldn’t hesitate to partner with Ray on a deal or lend him money on a handshake.

It’s been a pleasure knowing Ray, and I know our business relationship and friendship will continue for many years to come.

Ray handled my year-long short sale with extreme professionalism and integrity. We encountered every possible obstacle along the way and many times I wanted to give up and let the house go into foreclosure but Ray would always "talk me down" and help me get through the crisis at hand. He went above and beyond on many occasions just to get it done. He put me in contact with several other professionals who could answer questions I had related to the short sale process (i.e., tax implications). On top of all of that Ray is just a down to earth, nice guy! I heartily recommend him.
