First I would like to say THANK YOU to Ramzi and his team! If you are looking for a real estate advisor who is professional, honest, patient, and extremely knowledgeable Ramzi is the one! Throughout the entire home purchase process, Ramzi listened to my concerns like a friend and addressed them in a timely manner. Ramzi Ataya is the most honest realtor and person I have worked with. Ramzi helped me and my family purchase our home in 2002 and when it came time to move to another home I knew Ramzi would be the one to call! Ramzi stood by our side and helped advise us on what would be the best fit for our needs. I would highly recommend any future or current homeowner to work with Ramzi; he is a true professional.

When it came time to list my condo, there was only one person who I trusted to get the job done and that person is Ramzi Ataya! From his excellent marketing and presentation skills, to his vast knowledge of the industry and ability to negotiate in this crazy real estate market we’re currently in, I just knew he’d far exceed my expectations and he did. During the process we ran into a few roadblocks with my HOA (never fun to deal with), but he took the lead thank goodness and got everything resolved…eliminating so much stress from my plate for which I’m grateful. Ramzi successfully negotiated $50k over asking price, making the sale of my condo the highest recorded to date for my complex!!! THANK YOU Ramzi for taking such good care of my transaction. I’m beyond satisfied with your level of customer service and would highly recommend you to anyone looking to list or buy.

As a lender, I’ve worked with a lot of different real estate agents. Ramzi definitely stands out as one of the best I’ve worked with. He is knowledgeable and extremely efficient in his work. He is very communicative, and you can tell he really cares about his clients. I look forward to working with him again!

Ramzi has a great reputation on Zillow so we decided to work with him for our new home, we wished to move from great park neighborhoods to greener zone of turtle ridge, given the amount of inventory is so less in turtle ridge it was very challenging to find the house that fit right for our family, Ramzi was really accommodative with our needs and never pushed any compromised home on us, Ramzi is very well connected with agents around Irvine and we were able to find a gorgeous home in the "The Summit park" which was off-market home, everything worked very well and we are happy with our purchase. I would highly recommend Ramzi and his team if you are in the market to buy a home sweet home.

Ramzi is a great asset to Engel & Volkers, he and his team helped us sell our 5 point community home in Irvine. He works diligently and is super responsive to answer any questions you have in your mind. He knows his work, he has the right team to take pictures, video of your home, awesome back office team, his video team covers all aspects of your home so beautiful, we had multiple offers within 2 days of listing as predicted by Ramzi. We got the price which we wished for, he is very professional in suggesting to you any changes that might be needed before you get your home on the market. He is very accommodating in your requests and he put us at ease selling our home during the pandemic, he took extra measures to make sure the home, people visiting were all protected and everything was very well sanitized. We really loved to work with him and would love our friends & family to consider Ramzi & his team if they are looking to buy or sell a home.

- Ramzi is extremely talented and trustworthy. From the very beginning, we found him very organized, and a true professional. His availability on a short notice and punctuality added so much to our time efficiency. He examines each listing to the fullest scope, and provides accurate comps for reasonable offers. We saw his resiliency over our intense four-month house search, and never saw his enthusiasm go down. His experience of 21 years especially during price negotiation definitely saved us significant amount of money. He is also a man of contacts, from the moving company recommendation, to providing references for handy man or a gardener, he has it all. He is very approachable, personable and dependable. Working with him, we always had confidence as if working with a family member, not just a representative. We would highly recommend Ramzi for his honesty, diligence and the ultimate fiduciary interest he invests in the best interest of his clients.

"Ramzi is the BEST! He helped us four years ago with a rental and treated us like we were buying a million dollar home! So we contacted him to help when we decided to buy a condo. Again, he consistently delivered outstanding service throughout the entire process, going above and beyond when we needed him. He is now part of the family."

Ramzi and his team were amazing. Ramzi helped me with the sale of my condo and the purchase of my new home.
During the sale process, Ramzi was excellent. Extremely responsive, answered all our questions and put together an amazing listing for us. The sale went so flawlessly and helped lower my stress during the selling / buying process.
During the buy, Ramzi was ready and available to show my husband and I listings. Once we found the home we loved, he made sure to get us the best deal. Every question was answered, every phone call. Ramzi was there!
Thank you Ramzi for helping us purchase a home to create ever lasting memories in as a family.

Ramzi was absolutely amazing! Not only did he help us find the ideal home in this extremely challenging COVID world, he held our hand every step of the way. He consistently went above and beyond; helping us negotiate the best price, arranging all the inspections and approvals, recommending the best insurance agents, leaning on the lending team at key points to keep the process moving and helping us keep a great relationship with the sellers when the inevitable delays cropped up. Honestly you'd be crazy to engage any agent OTHER than Ramzi!

Ramzi is the best!
My first home sale so I was a little nervous to say the least . Ramzi was very efficient , I wasn't sure if it was a good market to sell and Ramzi assured me the time was right . I was able to get more then the market was asking , also the house was out of date and not looking great. (in need of a little TLC to say the least) With Ramzi's advice I did not wast any time or effort on trying to make it look good , that was a very good call by Ramzi . I would defiantly recommend Ramzi he's the man !!

Ramzi was instrumental in helping my son and I purchase a home in Orange. He orchestrated the search for the right home by showing us a number of different areas and price ranges. After finding a place that we loved, he facilitated all the due diligence for us because we were from out of town. The entire process was flawless from first meeting to closing. We could not have asked for a more trustworthy professional representative

I was pleased with how Ramzi conducted himself in our transaction from start to finish very professional and fair to both sides. He also came and spoke to me personally with his client and was willing to negotiate and decide on services before writing the contract, his follow through along with his transaction coordinator made this a smooth transaction and we even closed early. I definitely found our business affair result in some sort of meaningful and impactful outcome for all parties involved!

For being first time home buyers in the U.S., we needed just the right assistance. We found it with Ramzi team! Ramzi understood what we wanted and directed us to the best options, helping us to find the right property quickly. He also gave us plenty of professional advice throughout our search. Always proactive during escrow, he was upfront in negotiating the best scenarios in our behalf. Concerned with our interests until after we moved into the property, he was always a nice hand to reach out when we needed services and advice about how to solve little issues regarding adjusting to the new house. Very satisfied with their work, we strongly recommend Ramzi and his team to our friends!

Ramzi did a great job helping us find a tenant for our home. He was very professional and answered all of our questions and concerns. I strongly recommend him for all of your real estate needs. With his help, we were able to rent our unit very quickly and got multiple offers.

After searching for a home to lease for weeks and dealing with several different realtors in a highly competitive area, Ramzi was a breath of fresh air to say the least. His approach was unlike anyone else, therefore he was able to accomplish the difficult challenge like no one else. We felt confident in his abilities every step of the way. What a pleasure to be able to do business with such a professional.

If you are looking for a real estate advisor who is professional, honest, patient, and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate sales, Ramzi is definitely one. However, Ramzi is more than that. Throughout the entire home purchase process, Ramzi listened to my concerns like a friend and addressed them in a timely manner. Also, he utilized technology to provide customized sales/lease comp analyses which provided great insights when making an offer. He possesses great negotiation skills to get the right property for me. Because I am an investor who lives remotely, Ramzi viewed properties for me and took awesome videos with his detailed commentary. On top of that, Ramzi is able to help me with leasing out the property. Working with Ramzi and his team is like going to a one-stop shop, you will be able to get all the help and resources you need. It has been a pleasure working with Ramzi and his team. I highly recommend Ramzi as he is someone whom you can really trust and rely on.

SMi am y name is Hasna Saeid,and I am very Lucky to work with Ramzi ataya traight-forward
I’m very fortunate to have worked with Ramzi and to have him as my agent. I had a dream for a long time to live in a better and bigger home so my special needs boy has more space to play. I started working on it about five years ago, but working with other agents, none of them could get the job done for me, so I would have to give up on my dream and I would tell myself that it was impossible for me to ever move! Of course that all changed the day I met Ramzi! I found that to reach your dream home, you first have to find your dream agent. Ramzi took his job very seriously and he stood by me from A to Z. He knows what he is doing; he’s very serious, professional and humble at the same time. Thank you Ramzi for your great and amazing service; words are powerless to explain my gratitude. We need a lot more people like you in our lives. I recommend to anyone that is afraid to take the first step in buying a home, don’t say that it’s impossible, or don’t be afraid. Trust in Ramzi and you will be amazed at how easy it is and how he always finds the right solution to making everything work out, and in the end you will have a smile on your face as wide as mine!

This is probably the 10th property we have purchased since first moving to the U.S. in 1989. Working with Ramzi has truly been one of our best experiences. He's extremely professional, patient and a good listener. Thank you for helping us with our transaction and we are looking forward to working with you again very soon!
