"Robert went way above & beyond the call of duty!! There were several unanticipated snags throughout the process & Robert negotiated every obstacle with aplomb. And Elaine Ramirez was equally as helpful & fabulous as Robert. I'd use either or both of them again in a heartbeat."

"I couldn't have made this purchase without Robert! He was incredibly helpful in helping me narrow down the neighborhoods in Petaluma that appealed to me. He was patient and practice at the same time. Both Robert and Elaine anticipated my needs in the offer, closing, and final details for the purchase. Robert contacted the additional contractors for inspections and was able to be present at the property when I could't make it.
He was responsive to every question and concern.
I can't recommend Robert and Elaine Ramirez more highly!"

"Robert was amazing! He would get back to us so quickly every time we contacted him. He worked around our schedule for seeing the houses we were interested in. He was very helpful when we were looking at houses and and is very knowledgeable in his field. He really made the whole experience of buying a house so much less stressful because we know we had someone we trusted working with us. I will definitely be recommending Robert to anyone looking to buy a house!"

"The impressive effort put forth by Robert and Elaine Ramirez was instrumental in getting three attractive offers on our home. They covered every base, from getting inspections and other paperwork done early to avoid delays, to lining up staging, photography, brokers tour and open house so that the process was timely and smooth. Any real estate transaction is complicated, but Robert and Elaine made sure that this one seemed relatively simple."

"Robert Ramierez is a professional in every sense of the word and is a true pleasure to work with. He is very knowledgable about Sonoma County, and knows the house buying and selling process from the inside out. There was never a time when he could not answer my questions or offer sound advice. He is a good listener and related very easily to me and me to him. He is kind, courteous, and generous with his time and knowledge. I truly cannot imagine a better person to work with. I hope my family and I have found our forever home, but if I ever have an opportunity to work with Robert again, I will jump at the chance. And I will recommend to anyone I know or hear of looking to buy or sell a home."

"We are brand new to the area, knew no one other than work colleagues. Robert Ramirez came highly recommended by work colleagues as someone who knew the area, knew what housing needs were related to the new job (proximity to multiple areas in the area) and had helped many new employees previously.
Robert was wonderful every step of the way, I have only good things to say about him. He answered a constant barrage of emails, texts, phone calls and all times of day and the week. I felt like he truly has our best interests at heart, wanting to make sure we are taken care of and that the house is what we needed, in our budget and that fixes afterward are being done well. Robert was immensely patient in explaining all of the steps to us with out frequent and detailed questions. As first time home buyers, most of this process was completely new and Robert made it all very easy. We closed on the house last week and Robert has continued to help us as we are doing fixes and upgrades to the house.
Would work with him again and recommend him to both friends and family."

"When this property first came up on the market, I knew I liked it very much. As a result, I immediately contacted the agent I had been using for an extended period of time. However, as I learned a little more about the property and discovered how complex the process would be, I asked my parents for their advise. They highly recommended Robert Ramirez who assisted them when they purchased a home. They told me about some of his experience and vast knowledge of real estate.
Due to the passion I felt for the property I was inquiring about, I knew I needed someone who had the knowledge that could get me what I wanted. Once I turned to Robert, the effects were immediate. Due to how long he's been in the business of real estate, he was able to form a positive relationship with the seller's realtor which I think helped the process quite substantially. He also knew the area very well and already knew answers that few knew the answers to.
Throughout the whole 8 month process, Robert was there answering questions for me, negotiating the price, sending me email updates and keeping me posted on any new developments. He even went to the county permit office with me several times to square away any possible issues that may arise in the future.
He was not in this for the money, he was in this to help me buy a piece of property that I really wanted. I have learned that some realtors don't really necessarily care about how fitting a home is to someone. However, Robert did care very much, and his efforts showed me how good of a realtor he is.
In the end, after all the going back and forth, Robert was able to secure a deal with the sellers and landed me my property. I am very grateful for turning to Robert, and would recommend his services to anyone who finds their dream home and needs someone to close the deal."

"Robert Ramirez was very helpful from start to finish. He was very knowledgeable and very helpful to identify any issues with the house so that we could rectify the problem very quickly.
He was willing to help not only in the sales-related matters, but also other things in which he is not obligated to answer.
I have nothing else to mention other than he was one of the best agent I know. I would be happy to work with him again in the future.

"Recently my mother passed away and it was time to sell her home of many years. Having known Robert since I was a kid growing up in Petaluma, and given the fact that he helped her with other real estate transactions in the past I reached out to Robert to assist with this sale. I couldn't have made a better choice. Robert, with his wife Elaine, handled all aspects of the sale. From bringing me up to speed on the current market conditions, understanding trust sales, to establishing a price point, to working through the inspections, cleaning, de-cluttering, and repairs as well as working with me to select the right buyer they were both with me the whole way. Communication is the key to any sale and with me being out of the area they were simply flawless. I'm not much for testimonials, but I can honestly say that I've never had a smoother real estate transaction and this is a team of true professionals."
Matt Baker - Discovery Bay, CA (Seller) Wed, 10 Feb 2016 01:15:11 +1000
"Robert was such an amazing agent! We loved working with him and Elaine. He was so kind and patient. He showed us multiple houses and we never felt any pressure at all. He always tried to understand exactly what we were looking for in a house and tried very hard to find us exactly what we were looking for. By the end of our process, we felt as though Robert was like a family member that we could truly trust. He helped with every aspect of going through escrow and we cannot thank him enough for all of his efforts! We would recommend him without any hesitation at all to everyone that we know!"

"Robert Ramirez was a perfect fir for us. He listened to us, helped us develop a strategy, had the requisite knowledge of the area, house, and market, and he made himself available at every turn to ensure the deal got done on time without surprises. We have worked with other brokers in the past, and we appreciate Robert's approach very much.
Elaine Ramirez was prompt, efficient and a partner in getting this done. We had confidence throughout the transaction that Robert and Elaine were managing the parties and the transaction well.
Yes - all of the above!"

"Robert Ramirez and team were very knowledgable, patient, and professional while helping us purchase our first home. We love the space and neighborhood, and Robert helped make very clear all the benefits as well as the work needed on our new property. We can't thank him enough for the offer and negotiation skills he used to get us in the right home. It's frustrating to not be able to just buy the house you want, you need the right team on your side fighting for you, and thats exactly what Robert did!"

"MY WIFE JANE AND I INTERVIEWED SEVERAL REAL ESTATE AGENTS AND FIRMS TO SELECT FOR THE SALE OF HOME IN PENNGROVE. WE SELECTED ROBERT AND ELAINE RAMERIZ PRIMARILY FROM THE SENSE OF PROFESSIONALISM AND CONFIDENCE THEY INSTILLED WITH US.
ON EVERY INSTANCE THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PROCESS, ROBERT AND ELAINE DELIVERED EXCEPTIONALLY UPON THAT CONFIDENCE WE HAD IN THEM.
ROBERT AND ELAINE GUIDED, AND ADVISED, US, THROUGHOUT EVERY STEP OF THE MARKETING, SALES, AND ESCROW PROCESS. THEIR ACTIONS AND COMMUNICATIONS WERE ALWAYS TIMELY, PROMPT, CLEAR, AND THOUGHTFUL. ON SOME OF THE COMPLICATIONS AND ISSUES WHICH ALWAYS ARISE BETWEEN US AS THE SELLERS OF THE PROPERTY, AND THE BUYERS AND THEIR AGENT, ROBERT AND ELAINE CAREFULLY AND COURTEOUSLY ARRANGED FOR THE DECISIONS AND NEGOTIATIONS TO SUCCESSFULLY BENEFIT ALL PARTIES.
WE FELT THEIR EXPERTISE AND KNOWLEDGE ASSOCIATED WITH OUR HOME SALE WERE ONLY EXCEEDED BY THEIR COMMITMENT TO PERSONAL SERVICE TO US.
PERHAPS THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE MY WIFE AND I ENJOYED WORKING WITH ROBERT AND ELAINE, IS THAT WE HOPE TO MAINTAIN NOT ONLY A PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM, BUT A FRIENDSHIP AS WELL."

"I can recommend Robert with the highest praise. He made this process for me as easy a transition as I could have wanted. His
advice and guidance proved to be invaluable, and I'm sure were essential in making the sale of my house the success that it was.
He is a very knowledgeable and ethical professional. I am so pleased that he was my agent.
My experience from start to finish was one to inspire confidence - I was never pressured but felt always supported. My ideas were
considered, we discussed every part of the process, and the outcome of my sale was the best I could have hoped for. The experience
and professionalism Robert has made everything move forward in the most efficient and smooth way.
During the process of preparing and selling my house I said many times, "And he
can produce rabbits from a hat too." Experience, intuition, judgement, ethical concerns,
overall professionalism in this agent are what set him apart from many in his field.
He has my praise and my loyalty. I would use him again without a single doubt and recommend him to others needing a real estate agent."

"My husband and I worked with Robert and Elaine Ramirez when first moving to Petaluma five years ago. They are both knowledgable about the area and helped us to narrow our search quickly. We only considered working with them when needing to sell our house this spring.
We have bought and sold quite a few houses but have never had a realtor that compares to Robert and Elaine. They are professional and knowledgable and also sensitive to the stress of selling and buying a home.
Robert went the extra step of finding a realtor in Portland to assist in our next home purchase. Great guy!"
Jeanne Zabout, COO Petaluma Health Center (Seller) Wed, 01 Jul 2015 07:42:52 +1000
"I am so pleased with our experience. This short sale decision was scary no doubt and both Robert and Elaine explained everything clearly, went above and beyond. After speaking with them I was actually excited that this could actually be a reality and my life become easier and with much less stress."
C Olson - Rohnert Park, CA (Seller) Wed, 01 Apr 2015 10:25:59 +1000
"Robert and Elaine Ramirez are the kind of people you want when facing the stressful task of finding and purchasing a home, particularly in the Sonoma area. They acted as our advocates, mentors, business partners, and friends. No detail is too small for them to attend to, and no request from a client goes unanswered. They helped us locate and purchase exactly the home we dreamed of, even when the housing market in Petaluma made us feel as if the dream was unattainable."
