Don't take our word for it, see what others are saying about the Ramos & Associates Team at ReMax Select:
I have worked with many realtors in NM, Illinois, Tennessee, and Colorado, and Kevin has been by far the best. Because we wanted to both buy and sell a home, it was important to hire a realtor who had expertise in both. Kevin came to our home to meet with us and spent an hour interviewing us to learn what we wanted and was able to offer a great deal of knowledgeable advice concerning types of homes, what it would cost to make particular kinds of changes, and really helped us to understand what our options were.
When it came time to look at homes, he was very efficient in lining up all the ones we were considering so that we could see them all in one afternoon. He helped us evaluate each home, offering his perspective on the strengths and weaknesses of each, which really helped us to view them objectively. Once we settled on a home, he negotiated a good price for us, and the purchase went very smoothly.
It was on the selling side, however, that Kevin really showed his expertise as a realtor. Selling a home can be very complicated and stressful, but Kevin made it as stress-free as possible. He helped us evaluate the condition of our home and made suggestions for minor repairs that could increase its salability. He even did some minor touchup of the stucco himself, so as to save us from having to hire someone to do the job. He was always present when we were asking for bids for repair work to be done, and the house painters he recommended to us did an exceptional job. He also did a wonderful job of photographing our home to make it look as appealing as possible.
He was able to find us a buyer within a month, and once again negotiations went very smoothly under his skillful handling. Kevin saved us from having to pay for some expensive repairs requested by the buyer by going to the trouble of having an electrician come in and test the load and show that an upgrade to the electrical system was unnecessary. I probably would have relented on that point, but Kevin stuck to his guns and saved us thousands of dollars.
It is clear that Kevin really enjoys what he does, and genuinely enjoys helping his clients without regard to the amount of money to be made at the end. Even though there was less money to be made from the sale of our home than our purchase, Kevin worked just as hard if not harder on the sales end of things. I genuinely appreciated the level of confidence and trust that we were able to build in our relationship with Kevin, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others (as we already have).
~Candace B (NE Heights)
Kevin represented us (as buyers) in the purchase of our new home. As first time buyers, and buyers new to the area - Kevin did a fabulous job of educating us on the purchasing process and geographical area. We found the house (that met our lengthy criteria) which is now our home -- "our jewel box". Although, we were probably a bit "worried" about how things would go... Kevin made the experience very favorable for us. From helping determine the 'offering' price; to negotiating the 'back and forth' terms of sale with seller/seller's agent; to coordinating and managing all inspections; to being on top of all the calendar items and closing paperwork -- the process was smooth and seamless. We highly recommend Kevin. His professionalism, work ethic and 'let's do this', yet, easy style/approach made buying our dream home a reality.
~Carol G (Corrales)
We employed Kevin Ramos for selling our home in New Mexico based on his online recommendations. I just wanted to tell you that he was very efficient and effective realtor for listing the house. In less than a month after putting the house on the market, he was able to get an interested buyer who actually purchased the property. He communicates well and navigated us through the transaction despite a long distance and time difference. We recommend him strongly.
~David H (Los Lunas)
He turned out to do his usual excellent job. He understands the market really well. He is on the cutting edge of using computer technology to expedite what he does. He was able to handle all the paperwork very seamlessly even though I've moved to Michigan and sold my house in Albuquerque. That was pretty good. Buying my house and having it remortgaged right there in town was a lot more trouble than working with Kevin. From my point of my view, Kevin was great. I will definitely use him again in the future.
~Patricia S (NE Heights)
My wife and I are old (78 & 83) so we are not very patient! To begin with we must have driven Kevin a little crazy but he was patient and to cut a long story short the house was sold, everything was attended to and we are very happy!
~Kitto L (Rio Rancho)
Kevin was my 3rd go around on trying to find a realtor that I really felt good about. He quickly became a part of my family's life. Kevin was absolutely amazing. He had my concerns and needs in mind and was literally available anytime. We were totally in love with the house and are now-thanks to Kevin- in our home.
~Charity K (Valley Farms)
Kevin Ramos was engaged to sell my fathers home in the East Mountains. It had been on the market with another Realtor for almost a year. He suggested we lower the price a little, which we did, and our home had a full price offer within a month and closed in less that 60 days. I would give Kevin my highest recommendation.
~Holly W (Tijeras)
Kevin did a fantastic job. His services and communication were professional, prompt, and responsive. As this was our second home he gave us great advice about renting our first property. Knowing we wanted an investment property he was available to answer all our questions during showings and after. Once Kevin found a home he wanted to show us, he would call us right away and schedule a showing as soon as we were available...sometimes multiple times in the same day. During the inspection a few questions about the condition of the home came up; Kevin was quick to write a counter offer specifically listing the financial and/or health concerns. We were able to get a lower price on the home and were able to address the problems soon after we purchased, using the money we saved. During closing Kevin caught a fee we were being charged with and the refund was written write there before we left. The home we purchased was the second home we looked at and have been very pleased. We felt like Kevin's services looked out for our financial interest and the interest of our family as a whole. We would definitely return to him in the future and recommend him to others!
~Erin T (NE Heights)
Prior to our visiting Albuquerque from out of town to look for a home, my wife looked up real estate agents and emailed a number of them to make an appointment to show us houses. Kevin Ramos was the only one who answered her email, and the on-line reviews of Kevin were good, so we worked with him. Kevin is friendly, very communicative by email and phone, responsive to our questions and concerns, flexible with scheduling house visits, and he made time to be available within our schedule. He showed us essentially all of the houses that we wanted to see, and when we made a choice to make an offer,
he provided drafts of the offer by email, and when we settled on the final version, he used an electronic system for us to sign the documents. This was an effective and efficient mechanism to review the offers and counteroffers. Since
we were out of town during the purchase process, Kevin arranged for the home inspections, attended the inspections for us and worked with the sellers to have the necessary repairs done. Kevin also recommended a mortgage
loan consultant to get a mortgage. After closing, it took us several months to move to the new house, and Kevin took care of things at the house for us (watering outside plants, etc.). After we moved in, Kevin showed us the special things that the
seller explained to him about house care. We offered Kevin a tip for handling these things for us, but he refused. To sum up, Kevin Ramos is a very effective agent who knows the Albuquerque market and worked hard in our behalf. He is easy to work with, he addressed our questions and concerns in a timely manner, and facilitated our purchase of the home through his contacts and knowledge of the process. We very highly recommend Kevin Ramos; he is a person you can trust and depend on.
~Gerald D (Placitas)
We contacted Kevin when trying to decide whether or not to list one of our houses. After seeing the comps, we decided it didn't make financial sense to sell at this point, but Kevin was terrific. Kevin was quick to respond, went above and beyond when putting together comps and analysis for our somewhat unusual property, and was very knowledgeable and helpful during our discussions. We ended up deciding that listing the house at this point doesn't make financial sense, but when it does, we'll certainly be calling up Kevin to list it.
I learned of Kevin Ramos by reading other online reviews and decided that he was worth calling. My husband and I were blown away with the knowledge demonstrated by Kevin in several aspects of real estate. We had to make three separate trips to ABQ in order to secure a deal on the house. He met with us each time with several quality options and helped us figure out what we actually wanted in a property. Kevin is a hard worker. When you meet him you will feel at ease with absolutely NO pressure. Every time we came to ABQ, he drove us around for hours and answered dozens of questions. Kevin also has a network of quality people at his disposal that he is happy to share if any services would be needed to the property or financial services. He returns communication promptly and has demonstrated his willingness to work any days or hours to meet the needs of his customers. We have already recommended Kevin to other people and will continue to do so. Even after we have bought our beautiful dream property we feel that we could continue to ask Kevin for advice if anything were to arise. Please consider Kevin Ramos before all others when you are looking for a realtor.
~Marc B (Four Hills)
After listing this house with another Realtor for six months with only two showings, and no interest, we let the listing contract expire. That Realtor picked what we thought was an unreasonable price, with assurances that she could sell it.
We then listed the house with Kevin Ramos. He suggested a few minor changes to the house, and then he took a new set of much better photos. He recommended a much more realistic listing price. Although there were only a few in-person showings, there was enough web traffic to result in a sale within about three months. Throughout, he kept us informed every week about what was happening, and anything that needed to be taken care of.
~Jock E (Ventana Ranch)
Kevin is the first realtor I have ever found to be outstanding. He is quick to respond, diligent, honest, up-front, innovative, upbeat, hard-working, and patient. It is very difficult to sell an empty home in New Mexico from another state, which is here in Arizona. I tried three times before to sell this house using other companies and realtors and failed. Then I signed up for Angie's List and found Kevin Ramos. Kevin is the person you want for the job if you want a house sold with happy buyers and a happy seller! I had explained to him over the telephone what I needed, which in this case was him to not only sell the house but also for him to get in professionals to do any repairs or cleanup that was required to facilitate the sale of my home. He made everything to go smoothly and sold my house quickly. His communication skills to me are his biggest asset and why he is so successful. He kept me apprised and reassured every step of the way.
I would recommend this realtor in a heartbeat. I wish I had a Kevin here in Phoenix!
~Anne M (North Valley)
After many disappointments with other agents I finally found Kevin, let me tell you this guy is on the ball and is as professional as it gets! Kevin met my wife and I on many occasions and was very patient with us throughout the process of finding the perfect home. Kevin had shown us houses over many weekends and gladly worked around our schedules. He never let us settle for just a house, he wanted to help us find a home. Kevin worked very hard for us and was not one to disappoint. Kevin found us the perfect house at a great price! I recommend Kevin to all of our friends and coworkers. Kevin started out as our agent and ended up a friend! Do yourself a favor and save the time and frustration by choosing Kevin Ramos right from the start!!!!
~Aaron & Ashely B (Four Hills)
My husband and I hired Kevin Ramos to represent us in purchasing a new home. My husband had used Kevin before to sell a house and was very happy with the service that Kevin provided. Kevin worked hard to find us the perfect home and we are very thankful for all he did for us. We contacted Kevin when we were ready to start looking for a new home. Kevin was immediately responsive and began to look for homes for us. We also searched for homes on Kevin's website which was very helpful, and as we found homes that we wanted to see Kevin scheduled showings for us to look at the homes. We were impressed with how accessible and accommodating Kevin was with our schedules and his willingness to show us homes with short notice. We looked at quite a few homes throughout the process. We wanted to find a really good value in our new home and we had to write several offers before we finally found the right home. Kevin was patient with us and really kept our best interest in mind. Dealing with real estate agents in the past was quite frustrating, but Kevin made it a very friendly and professional experience for us. I have referred friends to Kevin because of his outstanding knowledge in the real estate industry. We are very happy with our new home and Kevin maintained exceptional contact with us throughout the whole process and since. We would definitely use Kevin again and we will continue to recommend him to our friends and family.
~Derek & Roxann F (NE Heights)
I have had the pleasure of working with Kevin Ramos at Re/Max Alliance Realtors for the sale of my townhouse in Albuquerque recently. He has provided outstanding service, and I highly recommend him.
In my life I have bought, sold, or attempted to sell real estate many times and so I have worked with over twenty real estate agents in various cities and states. For this particular sale I interviewed six or seven Albuquerque agents and brokers, and I am very glad that I chose Kevin.
Kevin is tops in professionalism, courtesy, communications, and knowledge, and he gets the job done. I wish every city had a real estate agent like him.
We found a buyer after two and a half months on the market during the slow season (October – December). The sale went extremely smoothly, with no delays, and we sold for 98.4% of the asking price.
~Kelvin B (NE Heights)
I wanted to sell my home and downsize. The 1st day I met with Kevin Ramos-Remax Alliance, he had a market analysis showing me what homes were selling for in the area, both high and low range, and average price per square foot the homes had been selling for. I was extremely pleased with his professionalism, dedication and knowledge of Real estate. He went above and beyond my highest expectations and did it with honesty and integrity. Although I had never bought or sold a home before, he made the experience pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions thoroughly. He was always available to me, and offered excellent tips and pointers for staging and showing my home. He met with a couple of contractors to get an idea if I needed to have work done prior to putting the house on the market. He kept my very informed every step of the way. Even though the market was in a slump, he was able to sell my home for more that the asking price and got me 2 additional weeks of occupancy after closing. He is an exceptional realtor who had my best interest at heart and has the knowledge and experience needed for the job. I highly recommend Kevin and will definitely use him again should the need arise.
~Roxanna K (NE Heights)
Phenomenal! Very tech savvy. Very energetic, prompt, organized, courteous, and knowledgeable. Our house was on the market for only one day! Closed 30 days later. Kevin uses DocuSign which is really handy. He uses a professional photographer. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home. The best we have ever seen!
~Chris & Nancy L (Mirabella Subdivision)
I needed an experienced Realtor to sell the house I inherited. I live in Texas so I wanted someone familiar with working with an out of state client. I also required a "best in class" realtor which Kevin certainly was. In our first meeting I found he was actually a Qualifying Broker and he has experience as an appraiser. I was glad to see he is associated with REMAX. In the past I have found REMAX is the brokerage where the better and more experienced agents are. I have seen other groups that are essentially realtor training grounds for agents with only a year or two of sales. Kevin provided good comparables and offered advice on improvements. He gave me the name of a flooring company that worked out very well.
There was good interest in the house the first week of the listing. An offer was made only 6 days after listing. We went through several counter offers before a final agreement was signed. Kevin set me up with an easy way to electronically sign the counter offers and other docs from Texas. The final price was pretty close to what the comparables indicated, about $105 per sq ft.. Kevin picked an excellent escrow officer to do the closing. I was surprised we could actually close as fast as we did - in about 5 weeks.
Kevin added more value beyond regular realtor duties. While I was in Texas he found people to buy some of my furniture. Kevin also has a trusted licensed contractor he works with so I did not need to be at the house for repairs. Kevin even offered to bring his truck and trailer to clean out the last items in the house if needed. I offered to compensate Kevin for all the unexpected and valued extra work but he refused saying "it is just part of the package".
Overall the selling experience was excellent. This was one of those sales with few issues but if there were any big ones, I have no doubt Kevin would have quickly resolved them.
~Mike C. (Ventana Ranch)
Kevin Ramos gave us accurate information about the likely selling price of our house, listed it, promptly prepared excellent internet and print advertising, and worked diligently with the agents of interested buyers. The house was listed in September and about one month after Kevin listed our house a cash offer was made, and less than two months after listing, the sale was made and the new buyers moved in. Before finding Kevin another well-known real estate agent had the listing for the best months -- the springtime and summer -- but there were very few showings and no interest. By September we were worried the house would not sell until the middle of next year. Kevin brought in new energy and a new plan, and immediately after meeting him we decided to list with Kevin. Kevin researched house prices and explained we needed to lower the price, which we did. Kevin designed a great internet listing and a beautiful brochure to leave in the house for viewers, and when someone viewed the house, he followed up with their agents. About a month after listing, Kevin had a cash offer. Kevin helped with resolving the inspection issues and we closed just a few weeks later. I give Kevin an A+, especially when comparing him to the other realtor, who is well-known and has been in business for decades. Kevin is not discouraged by today's housing market, is energetic and optimistic, as well as professional and courteous.
~Vicki J (Foothills)
Kevin helped us to locate and buy a new house and then sold our previous house. He was responsive and was able to answer our questions. He provided excellent advice such that we avoided trying for a short sale property (that to this day we may have been trying to acquire) and helped us find the right house.
~Jeff M. (Tijeras)
We cannot say enough about Kevin with RE/MAX Alliance. We had a house in the NE heights that we had been renting out and we decided we needed to go ahead and sell it. The house was a little dated and in need of some repairs. Kevin met with us and told us exactly what repairs needed to be done and which ones did not. He also recommended what we should list the house for without repairs and how much we should list it for with the repairs. We determined a budget that we were comfortable with and decided to go ahead and make the needed repairs. He coordinated all the repairs including painting inside and outside, new carpet throughout, new tile in the kitchen and bathrooms and much more. The repairs were completed quickly and professionally. Kevin listed the property when the repairs were completed and 2 days later we had a full price offer. Selling our house was so easy; Kevin really went above and beyond the call of duty in handling all the details. We just showed up for the closing and that was it. We highly recommend Kevin to everyone that needs to buy or sell a home in the Albuquerque area.
~Casey & Sarah C (NE Heights)
When my husband and I decided to sell a property that we had in Los Lunas we contacted a local agent. We waited for the agent to get back to us for several weeks and we were finally told that the land wasn’t worth anything, was in a bad area, and would never sell. We were disappointed with that agent and with what he had told us about the land. We live in northern New Mexico and don't often go down to Los Lunas, making it a difficult task to try and sell the land ourselves or to find someone to sell it for us. We had a very hard time finding someone who would be professional, willing to list such a small piece of property, and right for the job. Almost 9 months later our daughter referred us to Kevin. Kevin contacted us right away, researched the land and its value, recommended a listing price, and gave us the price we should expect to sell for. I was really impressed and grateful for Kevin's willingness to help us, and in my opinion go above and beyond. Kevin assisted us via phone, email and good old postal mail (for those of us who still use it) in getting all the proper documents that were necessary to sell our land. From the time we put the land on the market to the time it sold was under a month!! Kevin was able to sell it so quickly! We were impressed with Kevin's services from the time we first talked and voiced our interest in selling our land to the moment it sold. He offered us his professional advice, gave us our options plainly and allowed us to take the time necessary to decide what we would like to do. We were very pleased with Kevin’s honesty, integrity and professionalism. We highly recommend Kevin at ReMax Alliance and would certainly use him again if we ever need a real estate agent.
~David & Lucy Y (Los Lunas)
I manage my daughter's rental house and was installing a new Air Conditioner on the roof. I knew realtors sometimes do a market analysis on your home when you're interested in selling. I thought I'd see if I could get the analysis to make sure we had the correct sq footage on the home so the air conditioner was the right size. I didn't want to waste Kevin's time so I told him exactly why I wanted the analysis. He was so personable over the phone, took time to answer questions, gave me information that was very helpful and did not rush me at all. To top it off, he is educated in appraisal which can save you money on your house when he lists it (you know it's measured right). He graciously agreed to come measure the house and also gave me tips on how to improve the home to increase it's value. He did not charge me for the service but believe me, if I do sell in the future, I will definitely call him. The house measured 26 sq ft larger which doesn't seem like much but at $145/sq foot (what we paid in 2006) means the seller lost approx $3800.00. That could pay partial closing costs, or points for some people. We had problems with the brokerage firm we used when we bought the home and now the broker is in jail (not from our case but from his dishonesty with others.) I wish I had known about Kevin Ramos when we bought the house all the problems could have been avoided. I used to have my real estate license and am not up on the current market. situations but after this experience, I certainly will call him when I need to sell my home. I was very impressed with his knowledge and demeanor! All in all a great experience for me! If you use him, I think you will be very pleased.
~Marie F (Nob Hill)
Kevin was very professional, responsive, and brought me a thorough market analysis within 2 days of my request. I decided to hold off on selling (because of the market, not him), but I will definitely consider him when the time comes. Overall, it was an excellent experience.
~James G (Uptown)
We were interested in selling our home and needed a realistic evaluation of what we could expect in today's market. Kevin Ramos of Re/Max Alliance Realty met with us, assessed our situation, and then created a complimentary comparative market analysis. He responded very promptly and we met soon after. He was courteous, considerate, professional, and straightforward. He went over it with us, and offered his ideas and expertise regarding our specific circumstances. He is very knowledgeable and experienced in our specific situation regarding renovation. He was no-nonsense and realistic in his assessment, but very confident and genuinely positive in attitude. He was generous with his expertise and meticulous in his research, analysis, and preparation of the report on our house. Though we decided not to sell at this time, Mr. Ramos earned our trust and respect, and we look forward to using him in the future. We recommend him highly.
~Carolyn C (North Valley)
Kevin Ramos was the realtors that we selected for the sale of our mother's home. During the initial walk-through, Kevin gave honest feedback about opportunities on the property that would improve the sale of the home as well as the real estate business. Working within a restricted budget, Kevin was able to develop a plan that was reasonable and helped facilitate the work. Work items included yard work, internal painting and wall repairs, flooring replacement, appliance and fixture replacements. This was completed prior to placing the house on the market.
Kevin was able to successfully sell our mother's home within a very short time and in a very challenging real estate market. His professionalism, support, and service was exemplary. Deadlines were met, feedback and support always available, and we felt very confident in his work. Real estate is not our forte and we relied on Kevin to give us information in order to make reasonable decisions. He went over and above to make this a positive and worthwhile experience. We would use his services again and readily refer anyone to him as clients. He was a blessing during what could have been a very difficult time.
~Barbara & Beth S (Ventana Ranch)
Kevin started working with me in January to begin the process of selling my home. I had bought a home and due to life's circumstances, I could no longer afford the home, and I was upside down on the value. He helped me communicate with the bank from the very beginning. Over the course of 8 months, he worked to negotiate with the bank, get the bank to accept paperwork, meet ridiculous deadlines, and find a way for me to be done with this. After a first offer came in and fell through, he marketed my property hard to find another buyer before I went into a foreclosure. What a relief to have Kevin working for me. He made the paperwork a breeze with online signing, encouraged me and lifted my spirits through rough times, and kept the final deal together so that we closed and finished. His persistence and dedication is unmatched.
