Testimonials

  • We were extremely lucky to meet Omar and have him guide and represent us in the sell of our home. From beginning to end he was professional, honest, dependable, and kind. He not only made recommendations for vendors to use for a few home improvements that were necessary, but also instrumental in keeping the vendors on our established timeline. Omar's assessment of our home was right on track and he produced a sell that was exactly what he had estimated. The customer service oriented things that he does made a big impact on us and made us realize what we had been missing in the past with other realtors. I fully recommend Omar to anyone searching for an excellent realtor. I continue to give out his cards and will continue to sing his praises.

  • Both of us really enjoyed working with Omar and with his help we were able to purchase our first home. He made this complicated process smooth and problem free for us and we would strongly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a home! The first time we met Omar he spent time with us going through the entire home buying process and the various steps involved. Being first time home buyers this was important for us as we didn’t know what was involved and his thorough and patient explanation put us at ease. He quickly understood our preferences and pointed us to homes that fit our criteria. He came with us to several open homes and also scheduled visits and accompanied us to houses that didn’t have open homes or those that we wanted to see again. Because of his experience with houses in the area he was able to advise us about the pros and cons of a particular house both in terms of internal construction and also based on the area. Given the competitive housing market in the area, we put in offers on several houses and Omar was quickly able to draw up offers and counter offers. He has a good idea of the market and the value of houses we were bidding on. His suggestions for offers to put in were very close to what houses actually sold for. I really appreciate the fact that he set up documents to be e-signed as this saved me several trips and I was able to sign documents while at work or on my mobile if I was on the road. Once our offer was accepted, Omar helped throughout the Escrow process. He worked directly with our lender and the escrow company and took care of all the paperwork. He was always looking out for our best interests and was always available to answer our questions (even after office hours). He is very pleasant, trustworthy, easy to talk to and communicate with and we felt very comfortable with him. Overall, we feel lucky to have had Omar as our agent!

  • We've a very high bar for quality of service. We hold ourselves and others who provide us service to that high standard. We have nothing but praise for the services Omar has provided pre and post close of escrow of the house we purchased. 5 Star Rating we give for his service. We believe Omar was instrumental in setting the correct offer price of the house we purchased. He is wise and has the deep understanding of the local real estate market. Omar is very hardworking, smart and rational On the very first evening we first talked to Omar over the phone, he stayed up late to do due diligence and rationale for the prices that we can offer for the houses we were looking at. He did the same for the next couple days and evenings. Omar guided us through the entire process of buying the house and was always there every step of the way. Omar met with the appraiser at the property to share with him and convince him the reasons for the offer price we set for the house we purchased. That was a crucial step in the process of acquiring the house and we could completely trust Omar. Omar has always been very helpful. responsive and honest. Wherever we reached out to Omar for any help, even after the escrow is closed, Omar has consistently helped us without hesitation and connected us with the right kind of people who could help us in terms of handyman work, or electrical work or TV mounting work etc. In future, Omar will always be our choice of real estate agent. We will recommend him to anyone who will be seeking help from an honest, decent, hardworking unassuming and yet smart real estate agent who will work in their best interest and they can trust Omar 100%. Omar has earned our trust and good will so much that we told him he is our family member from now on and we mean every word of it. We wish Omar all the best in his career and life.

  • The decision to sale my home was by far the hardest decision I had to make. It was the first home I ever purchased and lived for several years.I loved my neighborhood and my home was my pride and joy. I knew the Realtor® I chose to sale my home had to have two qualities above all others, he/she had to LISTEN and effectively negotiate. After multiple interviews with prospective Realtors®, I had been referred to Omar Ruano by a few Realtors® at Colwell Banker. The moment Omar and I spoke I knew I was in good hands. Omar truly LISTENED he handled every aspect of the transaction with great care. He set up an amazing photographer to show my home in the best possible light, showcasing the uniqueness of the property and the neighborhood giving prospective buyers a visual canvass of possibilities. I honestly fell in love with my home all over again, (which Omar also prepared me for). He took the time to know the history as well as future development of the property and neighborhood. Omar effectively communicated all facets of the process and provided milestone updates, including open house schedules, marketing campaigns etc. We had several offers, of which he negotiated every detail. Omar made sure I understood all the intricate contract details, keeping my interest as well as my sanity top priority. :) Did I mention this was a short sale that had layers and layers of complicated negotiation? He successfully negotiated all terms and conditions with multiple banks, HOA legal team, Title Company, buyers, the list goes on and on. Omar exceeded all my expectation. I am so thankful and highly recommend Omar and his team. Thank you for your professionalism, expertise and overall care. You have a client for life.

  • As first time home buyers coming off a Real Estate Agent that we felt didn't fit our needs, my fiancée and I were a bit hesitant starting over with a new agent for our home-buying experience. I had found Omar through my credit union's Homebuyers Advantage program and we decided to take a chance on him in the hopes that he would not only assist us in our endeavor to own a home but also to guide and advise us truthfully and sincerely. That chance turned into an amazing partnership with Omar who really helped through this entire process and made it far more manageable and much less stressful and frustrating. One thing I truly appreciate, working with Omar, is that he gives you his honest opinion on what an aggressive bid is on a home and whether or not the home, given it's state, is worth that. In such a deep seller's market, it was nice to know that we could count on Omar to share with us his thoughts on each house we looked at together. Omar is also pretty quick to provide requested information. We've asked him for comparison reports and disclosures for homes we saw and many times he was able to provide all of that information within the same day. I would definitely recommend Omar as Real Estate Agent and will definitely use him again for any other Real Estate needs.
