What my clients say...
Crystal P - Buyer/Seller - Rancho Cordova
What most would consider one of the biggest, difficult, labor intensive, confusing, and nerve wracking goals (buying your first home)... and Raymond managed to make it a (literal) walk in the park. From the extensive knowledge base, the ease in expeditious communication, and the ability to see 3 steps ahead of the game, what Ray brings to the table supersedes what you'd expect from your Realtor. I'm grateful to have made this life investment, and will for sure be calling Raymond when I'm ready for home #2!
Buyer - Vallejo
Buying a home can be a very stressful experience and choosing the right person to represent you can minimize all the unnecessary added stress. Ray is very knowledgeable with all the cities surrounding the greater bay area. He was very flexible and worked with our schedule when we needed to check out homes of interest. He is very responsive and answered any questions we had in a timely manner. Ray never "sugar coated" any information yet was professional at all times which is refreshing in a real estate market like today. Ray was very patient with us untill we found our perfect home and he truly had our best interest at heart, unlike other agents I've worked with who will try to sell you anything just to make a check . I highly reccomend Ray's services as im sure he is the perfect person to help you with all your real estate needs.
Darryl D - Buyer - Pinole
I recently purchased a home with Ray's help. He was extremely knowledgeable in his approach during this tough market. Kept me updated throughout the entire process and was quick to answer any questions I may have. I'll forever be greatful for his hard work and will recommend my family and friends to him for any of their real estate needs
Buyer - Discovery Bay
Raymond was professional throughout the whole process. He stayed on top of any issue that was arising! He made us feel comfortable and secure that no matter what it was going to take we would own our own home! After seeing dozens of homes and putting in multiple offers we were just that, Homeowners!! We couldn't have done it without Raymond. Knowing that he was there day and night to answer any question and walk us through every step was reassuring in a process that is already so stressful! We will definitely be using Raymond for any and all future purchases!!
Buyer - Richmond
Ray is very professional and get things DONE! He helped me to get a property through a very competitive bidding process. He response my text and email in a very timely basis. I felt that I was really in good hands during the entire process.
Buyer - Livermore
Is you wish to have an agent that you can trust with professional insight of the market, you won't go wrong with Ray. I have recently moved to USA form Australia and I had 0 understanding about how real estate transact in USA, Ray taught me everything - in depth analysis of each process from making offer, reading contract, understanding contingency, strategize negotiation and counter offer. Ray is quick and stay close with my case. During season of June July it's exteremely difficult to get people accepting offers, as there are so many multiple offer situation that blow price out of the water but we managed to lock my property in and close within 20 days. <br/><br/>I could really trust him and because I didn't have much time to go see houses ray completed all inspections for me and run comparables to make right offers, i trusted him so we made offers without me checking the houses that allows us to get acceptance real quick.<br/><br/>During inspection Ray was at my house and went thru everything in detail with insepctors, i felt he really treat this purchase as his own purchase. None of my friends or colleagues has the same level of great experience with any realtor. I am gald and felt really lucky to have Ray as my agent.
Buyer - El Sobrante
I purchased my home from Raymond back in 2008, and i was a first time home buyer so i was very picky and didnt really know exactly what i wanted just knew i wanted to buy a house, Raymond was very patient with me and on his game when there was any questions i had. He must haved showed me 30 plus houses here in pinole area with him haveing to commute from Fremont but never raised the issue and he wanted my first home to be special and what i wanted not forced to put bids on every house we looked at, as other realitor's would suggest or want you to hurry up and buy so they get paid was not his intention at all. And at closeing he was also able to get me back closing cost as well. If i were to sell or buy again would deffinately use Raymond Maestas again.
Raymond is definitely a local expert in Real Estate. He is reliable and very knowledgeable, going out of his way to get the best property for the best deal. I would recommend him to any friend or family who needs great service in real estate.
Buyer - San Pablo
Raymond was attentive and maintained a clear channel of communication. In addition he was able to negotiate a lower purchase price and get a majority of the closing cost paid by the seller. Simply put; the perfect Realtor found me and my family the perfect home at the perfect price!
