It doesn’t have to be stressful and it really isn’t that complicated, provided that you have a knowledgeable guide. When you are buying a San Ramon home, our goal is to find out exactly what you are looking for and then help you to find it.
It’s always a lot more than just a home within your budget that has a certain number of bedrooms and bathrooms, so ideally, we should arrange for a face-to-face meeting as early in the process as possible. Possibly many months before you plan to buy. Then we can talk about the kind of neighborhood you want to live in, what kinds of facilities you need to be accessible, and what style of homes you like. Would you prefer a home with a large yard or no yard? How about a pool? Would you love it or hate it? There are so many questions that need to be answered.
My daughter, Michelle, and I, preview many homes that are newly listed for sale in San Ramon every week. In the main, we will be trying to identify ones that would be of interest to you so we can keep you updated with what is on the market that is relevant. You may also want to sign up for our Homes By Email service. Many buyers do, particularly when they are in the early stages of the home buying process.
When you are getting close to the time that you will be ready to seriously consider buying a San Ramon home, we will arrange to show you any that appeal to you. We may suggest some that you haven’t considered as well. Often, we have access to homes that are not actively listed for sale – “off-market” homes, as well as many that are “Coming Soon”.
If you live in the area, you may well have been visiting Open Houses. That’s a great way to get a feel for home values, but when you are ready to buy, a personal showing is advisable so you can take your time and not be distracted by the presence of others.
When you decide you want to make an offer on a home, based on recent sales of similar homes, we will help you to determine how to structure an offer with a good chance of acceptance. It’s not always the highest priced offer that gets accepted. That’s why we always talk to the listing agent before writing any offer. Then we can find out what the seller is looking for.

And as a big plus, whenever Compass has a “Coming Soon” home in San Ramon, you won’t have to wait until it is listed on the MLS to get details. These homes will also be emailed to you in exactly the same way.
When your offer has been accepted, we will guide you through the process of inspections, repairs negotiation, when appropriate, reading and understanding the seller disclosures and completing the paperwork that is so essential to the home buying process in California.
As we approach the end of the transaction, we will accompany you to the Title Company where you will sign the necessary papers, then arrange for you to have the keys to your new home.
The above is a brief summary of how we can help you when you are buying a San Ramon home. Depending on your situation, there are more factors that may come into play. If you need a mortgage and you haven’t been pre-approved for financing, for example, we can introduce you to some of the best loan specialists in the area – people we have known for years.
Another thing I should stress is that you will never find any pressure from us. We really don’t care how long you take to find a home. What is important to us is that you find the right home. We have worked with many buyers for months before they found a home where they wanted to write an offer. Buying a San Ramon home is a huge commitment and we promise we will help you to the very best of our ability.
And note that our services don’t cost you a cent. They aren’t free of course. It’s just that they are paid for out of the commission that the listing agent charges the seller.
