Ramana Reddy is very intellectual and possess immense knowledge in real estate business. He is very down to earth and understands
buyers or sellers needs from every perspective. It may range from financial to all the way down to emotional needs.
He understands every one of his clients from their grassroots of thier personalities by never forcing or pushing them to make
unrealistic decisions. He not only thinks about client's present situation but also the benefits of property buying/selling
in future too.

We have been working with Raman since 6 plus years and we have always relied on his judgements which are practically
tailored to our needs and capacity. Ramana helped us buy our dream home after nearly six months of house hunt. This shows
how patient Ramana has and also his resilience and dedication for his clients. There were times in where we liked the houses
but when Ramana disclosed all the loop holes, issues and imperfections about the same home, We felt how little we knew about
properties in details and for that we really appreciated the honesty of Ramana. Most of the times not many real estate agents ignore
all the issueswith properties and push their clients to buy/sell them just make their profits.

I highly recommend Ramana for all real estate needs to anyone who are willing to work with a trustworthy, honest and very
practical person like him.

I would highly recommend Ramana for your house buying, selling and loan needs. Here is our experience.

We were looking for a housing loan for my daughter. Ramana was processing our loan, but when we found a good rate online with moderate closing costs, he evaluated the terms for us and advised to go with the other loan application. You will find very few people who advise you with such honesty and integrity.

We bought a home in Santa Clara (Apr 2018). 2 months into the home search we lost hope of being able to buy in south bay as the home were so expensive.

Ramana's guidance has helped us look at the bigger picture when searching for the properties. Here are some of the key points he helped us with:

1. After discussing our budget and location he gave us recommendation on what zip codes to look at.
2. We have looked at short listed properties together and he is very knowledgeable on determining the quality of construction.
3. He gave us very good estimates when we were ready to place an offer.
4. For the home we bought he actually made us offer less than what we wanted to offer.
5. It was not an easy decision to make as the property has some permit violations. He took suggestions from a lawyer, an architect and a contractor before we finalized the deal.
6. He also helped us pick a lender.

All in all he helped us in every step and we would have never bought this home had we not met him. He also gave us the promised refund back after we closed the deal and we really appreciate his help.

We bought our first home last week and Ramana represented us as buyer's agent.

To begin with, we had absolutely no idea of where and what to look for.
In the very first meeting, Ramana explained clearly on the pros and cons of different areas/neighborhoods in the bay area,
the kind of properties that we need to look for and helped us in identifying the ones that suit us.
We realized that we came to the right person after this meeting.

Since then we called and met him multiple times and bombarded with tons of naive questions but he was always polite
and patient in answering the questions in the way we understand.
He was always very quick in responding to e-mails and phone calls.

He observes the properties that we showed interest and their neighborhood very carefully and gives his honest opinion.
We feel so happy now that we didn't offer some properties in haste that we liked but which he didn't have good opinion on.
We would have made terrible mistake if we hadn't followed his suggestions.

It is very interesting to let you know that we didn't even look at the property that we ended up buying before the offer.
Due to time constraints, we couldn't go to the property before the offer date but we just relied on Ramana.
He saw the home, gave a green signal and we offered it. We believed in him and his experience.
Now this stands as the best decision we have ever taken.

Ramana, we appreciate your valuable advices and help in finding our dream home. Thanks a lot!

We highly recommend Ramana for your real estate needs.

Ramana has represented as our (buyer's) agent for my first home in 2014. Since I had great and an immensely pleasant experience working with him, I have asked Ramana to represent as a buyers agent for my investment home. From day one we have identified this home, Ramana is on top of things and made my life stress less. He gives out valuable information and suggestions based on the historical data and current market conditions. Ramana has amazing negotiation skills and got us for a very good price. Ramana also represented as a loan officer and got the interest rate better than market value. His response to phone and email has always been quick. I would highly recommend him to anyone for a smooth home buying

We just bought our first home and Ramana made it so easy for us. He represented as our (buyer's) agent. We met with at-least 5 other agents before meeting Ramana but all others just wanted to close the deal asap whereas Ramana is the only agent who understood our needs and then explains all the available options for us. As a first time buyers we had tons of question and Ramana never hesitates to explain any of them. He is very soft spoken and never forced us in anything. He clearly points out the pros & cons and give enough guidance and then let us decide. His attention to details are highly commendable. He look at the house as if he is looking for himself. He is like our elder brother who is helping us in finding our first home. Such a humble, polite and great person to work with.

I highly recommend Ramana for all real estate services.
He will be your one stop shop !!

Thanks a lot Ramana!! It was great working with you and we really appreciate your help and business.

Ramana did a great job in getting our home loan! We was very efficient and prompt with all my requests and inquiries. He got me a great fixed rate and was able to minimize my closing costs. I would use him again if we were to purchase another house in the future. I would definitely recommend Ramana for mortgage loans.

Thank you!!!

Ramana's guidance was instrumental in me getting the home I wanted in the neighborhood I desired. His expertise on the neighborhood, homes and the prices helped me analyze the pros/cons of every home quickly. He also recommended the right financial consultant for me which was very critical. I would highly recommend him for your real estate needs.
