Ranju is one of the best realtors out there in the market. She is very responsive, has excellent knowledge, easy to work with and goes an extra mile for you. It's very rare to find all these qualities in a person.

We met her at an open house and shared with her our requirements. After getting some inputs from her, we realized that she would be the perfect fit for us. She would frequently send out options our way and stays on top of what is coming in the market. She was always a phone call away when he had to go see houses we were interested in. We would get detailed inputs about price, features, pros n cons, etc. With all this help coming our way, we were able to find our dream house pretty quickly. She got us a good deal as well by negotiating a few rounds.

Post signing the contract, she followed up regularly to make sure our loan was progressing & helped us quite a bit to get things through faster. Something no other agent would do if one ends up being with an average lender. She ensured that we didn't have to pay an extra penny out of our pocket while keeping the entire process stress-free.

She has her network of people who work as efficiently as she does. This helps smoothen the process at every step. A huge plus for working with her. Moreover, she also gave us contacts of handyman which came out to be quite useful for us while settling in.

Overall, I would easily recommend her to my friends & family looking to make a move. She is best at what she does and works with you like you are family.

Pro Tip: If you are looking around, just give her a call and sit with her once with all your requirements, you would get a sense of all the aspects I mentioned above.

"Ranju has been extremely responsive, friendly, and was a great asset from start to finish. We could not have asked for anyone better. Due to her flawless execution and persistence every step of the way, the whole process of buying a new home and getting it done in record time has been a great positive experience."

We had to relocate out of state 10 months after we purchased our home. We were afraid that we would not see any of the down payment that we put in the house as it was only 10 months since we bought our house. We discussed with Ranju, and she gave us some pointers. She asked us to wait a couple weeks, and then very strategically listed our house at the right time. Ranju did a great job selling our home. She was incredibly responsive, and managed the process very well. She is very resourceful, and was fully engaged from start to finish, and delivered a very high level of service. She knows the Bay area market very well, and got us way more then what we expected for our house. We actually ended up making some profit after all the expenses were paid, and we never expected that. She is honest, very helpful, reliable, and very friendly. Her strongest point is that she is very methodical in her work and is very persistant with getting stuff done. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs an agent

We knew that Ranju was someone we could trust just after the first meeting. Ranju is very knowledgeable, and gave us a lot of recommendations in areas we previously never thought of that matched our criteria, including some off-market opportunities. She is very prompt and answered all of our concerns. She is very sincere, and worked very hard to save us any money that she could.

She's a very good negotiator and when we found a place we want, she got us into contract quickly and we closed smoothly. I highly recommend her services.

Ranju is an awesome realtor. She negotiated a lot to get us a deal. I believe we saved at-least 30K mainly because of Ranju.

Ranju is extremely knowledgeable. Her experience in this field really helped us through this process of home buying. Ranju is confident and stands by her saying "I wont let you lose money in a deal". We will definitely recommend her!

We met Ranju at the open house for the house we bought. She helped us get an offer in very quickly, and facilitated a stress-free (for us) and quick negotiation process. She is a competitive buyer's agent.

She also facilitated a smooth closing process, and we were able to call on her to schedule visits to take measurements in the house as well as contractor visits during escrow.

Ranju is also a great resource for contractors, and provided us with a list of quality people that we could call. Thank you, Ranju, we are appreciative of your help and professionalism in our home buying process!

Ranju has done an amazing job in helping us finding the best property. She's always on top of everything: from sending out latest listings that matches our criteria, to help explaining potentials of different areas; from careful walkthrough of the house to providing referrals to professionals we need. Not only does she helped us get the best price for the property, she also worked really hard on taking care of problems emerged during the process and thus made it really easy on our side. We would never be able to buy such a good property in such short period of time without her. We would highly recommend Ranju and would definitely refer to our friends.

Ranju was our agent when we bought a house in Sunnyvale. Our interactions with Ranju were very smooth. Since we had kids she took time to arrange for some activities to keep them occupied when we had to discuss or sign papers. When we finally found a house we liked she moves quickly and we close quickly on the house we liked.

She batted on our behalf a few times notably in regards to the contract to ensure the seller leaves the appliances in place which saved us the trouble of buying new appliances also she negotiated so that we ended up with a winning offer which was lesser than what we were expecting to go till.

We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Ranju. On top of being exceptionally good at her job she felt like a friend after the first showing and certainly is a friend now. She is honest, hands-on and really helped to take the pressure off of us.

Every time we viewed a new property Ranju would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of construction, finish, appliances, etc. She also led us through multiple rounds of negotiation to get to a price we were comfortable with. She was very responsive to our needs and was always available when we needed her to be. Anyone looking to purchase a home would be lucky to work with Ranju.

We could not have asked for a better Realtor then Ranju. She’s very friendly, easy to work with, and knowledgeable about the Bay Area market. Our lease was ending. We thought about renting again. We consulted with Ranju she told us that she could find us a house with payments less than rent. Ranju put us in touch with great lenders and she exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond to get us a good deal. Ranju knows how to make a proper offer and get it accepted. Ranju responded to my questions day and night and never seemed unavailable. Ranju made sure disclosures were in our hands for open houses we were going to attend.

Ranju saved us Money and a lot of stress. We would HIGHLY recommend Ranju and will be referring her to friends and family.

Ranju just helped us purchase our home at Santa Clara. Throughout the process, she has been providing us with a lot of assistance in getting loans done, coordinating multiple parties and finally facilitating in setting up our home. She's also been very patient in listening to our concerns and promptly addressing them. The purchase process would have been very stressful without her. For those looking to buy a house, I would highly recommend her.

Ranju is the Bay Area real estate super realtor! And that’s putting it mildly. My wife and I met Ranju at an open house and immediately realized she is the perfect agent we wanted to work with for our new home hunt. She made the process very easy, and gave us our space to visit open houses and decide. She negotiated very tactfully with the sellers agent and got us the price we wanted. Following offer acceptance, she’s been a one stop mega shop for all our questions: from handyman, to contractors and far more! We would very highly recommend her to anyone looking for any real estate needs.

Ranju just helped my daughter buy her first home in Redwood City. She is a very responsible, hardworking and efficient Realtor. She knows Bay area Real Estate market very well and educated us on lot of different pockets that we did not know. She is always on top of things and she was especially attentive to our needs. She listened to what we were looking for in a home and the properties that she chose to show us met very closely to all our requirements. She also always had our best interest as her first priority, I especially remember an incident where I pushed my daughter to close on a deal too fast and after our offer got accepted, she began to have second thoughts. Ranju was very understanding and didn’t get upset and on top of that she was able to get our deposit check back! Nowadays, it is very hard to find a Realtor who is aggressive on behalf of the clients yet with integrity and high morals. We are very satisfied with Ranju and will definitely use her services again. We will highly recommend her to our friends and family! It’s a pleasure to work with you, Ranju!!"

We had a sense of urgency in regard to home purchase . Explored the market , visited three weekend open houses , it was certain that competition in Bay Area was at its peak and it seemed tough to crack this!
Yet , Ranju , who we met in one of the open houses made it possible. And when I say possible - its getting the offer accepted in the first go at a great price in a preemptive offer (very few knew one existed) .
I would recommend Ranju for anyone interested to buy or sell home. She is great at convincing and knows the hearbeat of market . For us , she has been always available to our calls and doubts at anytime during the purchase process. It was a blessing we had her for our first home purchase. Her work was amazing and satisfying.

I moved to the bay area a couple of years ago and this was my first time buying a home in California. We met Ranju at a open house back in May 2018. After having a brief chat with her, it was clear to us that she is the Realtor that we were looking for. Ranju met up with us soon after the open house; described the home buying process to us and then asked us questions to understand our requirements. A month later we found the home we were looking for. She did a really good job negotiating with the sellers and got us a good deal on the house. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. I would gladly recommend her to any of my friends or family if they are ever in the market to buy/sell a house.

Ranju is a great person to work with. She understands the market and makes sure that her buyers 1) find a house quickly 2) get a great deal 3) are connected with good lenders are contractors both before and after the process. Leaving the best for the last, her strongest skill is negotiating. Whether you are a buyer or a seller, she will go above and beyond to hit and improve upon the numbers you want!!!

Excellent service from Ranju as my buyer's agent. very responsive and got us a good deal on a house. ( Great negotiation which saved us $$$) Always available to answer questions and guide when needed without any pressure. She was happy to write offers where we felt comfortable and supported fully where we lost the bids. In seller's market, she comes in handy with her so many years of experience and knowledge. We also got some free real estate investment advise from her as well! We will definitely have her as our agent in the future without a doubt.

Ranju was a great agent and supporter through our home buying process. After moving to the area and renting for almost two years, we weren't sure if we would be able to buy. But after meeting Ranju at our first open house, she confidently told us that she would be able to help. Within a day, she had connected us with financing and had emailed me a link to a house that ended up being exactly what we wanted.

We made our first offer which expired and a few days later, Ranju made an offer for even lower and the seller accepted it. Unheard of in this market! We can't thank her enough for all that she's done to help us through this process and highly recommend her to anyone in need of an agent who keeps things moving along.

We moved to Bay area in Dec 2016, also looking to buy a house in the middle of insanely difficult housing market. After working with another agent and bidding for houses for a period of few months we gave up on buying a property at the end of 2017. During a weekend in Feb 2018, we decided to check out some of the open houses and we met Ranju at one of the open houses in Redwood city. She explained us about the property we were looking at with a lot of patience and was a very convincing agent. This made us think if we could talk to Ranju about the problems we had during our last year’s search for a house. Ranju proposed to meet us the same evening and we were totally convinced after talking to her that she would be the perfect realtor. Trust me, she is a very convincing and knows the market well. And it proved to be so true! I am so glad we worked with Ranju for our house buying process. I say this because we could buy the house of our choice without compromising on anything within just 4 weeks of looking at properties and she was able to negotiate a great price for us.

Ranju was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and took time to talk to us every time before we went for open houses. With an 80-pound dog, a budget of less than a million dollars it was very hard for us to determine which houses to go to and not to go to, given that people were paying 20% more over asking price. Most of the other agents said we shouldn’t bother looking to find the right house in the peninsula without more than a million dollars to bid and should consider cheaper areas like Fremont, and we were not ready to compromise on our location. Ranju made sure we had the disclosures in hand before going out for any open house, she was very honest in telling us if we had any chances of winning the house. She was available any time we needed to talk to her. If we liked a house, she would promptly check out the house with us. She not only helped us to choose the right houses to check out but also helped us to get our finances right. She even recommended a lending agent in the area and gave us the right points to ask a lender which saved us thousands of dollars. For the three previously lost bids, we were at the top 2nd, and that was a big deal for us! Ranju has a knack of connecting with other agents and everyone else involved in the transaction. We have a house because of her quick response, persistence and amazing negotiation skills. We could not have done this without Ranju and she is still taking care of us during the closing process. When it will be time to move again, we will definitely contact Ranju! We recommend Ranju to anyone who is looking to buy or sell any real estate in bay area so very highly!

Ranju was truly a blessing to have as our Realtor. She is kind and very informative; she was always looking out for our best interest in buying a house. Her expert advice helped us purchase a home rather quickly in a very competitive housing market and during closing she fought to make sure the deal was fair for both parties. She even helped us find a great loan officer and housing inspector. 10/10 recommendation!

We bought our first house last year in July and it was a great pleasure to have Ranju as our real estate agent. Ranju is a great real estate agent who will devote her time and energy to understand your needs and find the home that fits your requirements. She is sincere in her advise and is extremely knowledgeable in the market. She will negotiate professionally and diligently on your behalf. She is terrific to work with. She represented my parents to purchase their home five years ago and we will contact her in future as well whenever we need to buy or sell any real estate.

I recently had the opportunity to work with Ranju and her buyers on a purchase up in San Bruno, California. Not only was Ranju attentive, responsive, and very professional, but she was a great negotiator for her clients, and someone, who you could tell, truly cares about them, as well as about the other parties and participants in the deal. I really enjoyed working with Ranju, and look forward to working with her in the future. She is a professional's professional and helped make the transaction go smoothly.
