"We had a great experience working with Ray on the sale of our home. He was very responsive and creative in his approaches and ideas. He put in the extra time and effort to do the research that is so important when selling a property. Because of his efforts our home sold quickly and in the range we were looking for. Thanks again Ray!"
- James and Marlie Markert
"Ray epitomized what a real estate agent should be. He was on top of the latest information, kept a great line of communication and was just a good guy. That combination proved to be the winning formula in our search for the best place at the best price. Even though our sales process was not as smooth as either of would have liked, Ray never blinked an eye and kept the course as my wife and I both felt he had our best interest at heart. Being in sales I know how important and rare those qualities are. Good job Ray! We would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who is looking for Real Estate in the San Diego area."
-Rob & Debi Ogden
"Raymond promised us that he would give us the best deal and he did, from when he showed the house to the final signing, we could feel that he was "on our side". Throughout the process he was well-prepared, punctual, and always prompt to respond to our concerns and questions. He ensured that we understood what needs to be done and, perhaps more importantly, what CAN be done. If there is stress in home buying, we hardly felt any; all that was needed was a phone call to Raymond. We were first time home-buyers and Raymond perfectly understood our concerns, a true buyer's agent!
Honest. Professional. Someone you can trust and sleep peacefully. Your search for a real-estate agent ends here!"

"Ray provided our family with excellent service while purchasing a San Diego home from out of state. He really went the extra mile to make sure the entire process was smooth. He provided a great referral for financing and worked on our behalf until the transaction was complete. He gave great advice and suggestions for all of our questions. We would highly recommend his services to our friends in the San Diego area!"

My experience with Raymond Grant as my realtor: "Raymond stuck with me through thick and thin, heartache and celebration. If I were him, I would've passed me off to someone else as a client for all that I put him through. Our Agent/Client relationship lasted just shy of a year. Raymond's tenacity and "never give up" attitude kept me going through times when I wanted to give up attempting to purchase a home. Raymond kept digging and putting in the work to make my dream of home ownership a reality. He truly is a master at his craft, and I wouldn't be in my home if it weren't for him. I am forever in his debt, he found me the home that I always thought was just a pipe dream. I have only to say to him "thank you for not giving up on me."

“ I realized that I wanted to buy a home and close in time to receive the federal tax credit just as I was leaving my job. I thought that I might not be able to find a place with just my residual income. I got in touch with Raymond and he put me in contact with a terrific Mortgage loan officer. After receiving a great pre-approval on a VA backed loan, Raymond was able to find my “ diamond in the rough” of a place.
Raymond was able to negotiate with a seller that wanted much more for his home, and nearly walked away from our offer. Raymond was able to get me the home for a great price, with time to spare to qualify for the tax credit. He was very professional at getting things done, and is a pretty cool guy as well.”

“Ray was always proactive, sending us updates on new properties that fit our changing needs and requirements. He spent hours with us each week, looking at potential homes and pointing out the advantages and disadvantages of the various properties. Ray had a great feel for the market, knowing when and how much to offer for the properties we were interested in. He helped us fine-tune our final offer to ensure that we got the dream home we were looking for. During the offer, funding and closing stages, Ray stayed right on top of the situation, helping us to avoid numerous pitfalls while ensuring that no obstacle became insurmountable.”

Statement of satisfaction with your service: “Raymond’s response to our needs to obtain a condo at our low price target and timing to move in were extremely helpful to my wife Karen and I. We had contacted other realtors before we met Raymond but they were very ineffective in meeting our objectives, they did not believe we could find a property at our low price target and time frame. Raymond was the only realtor with a positive we can do it attitude! Raymond found the condo we needed at the right price within a few days and we closed escrow right on time for our move. Thank you Raymond for all your honesty, integrity, faith and hard work which all worked so well together for Karen and I.”

"Purchasing property in San Diego County is not new to my family and I. We have owned three previous homes in the area. However, in our previous transactions we had not used the services of a Real Estate Consultant, so we were unsure of what to expect from Raymond Grant when he assisted us with the purchase of a condominium in December 2008. Our experience can be summed up in just a few words: Knowledge and Professionalism. Raymond offered excellent advice, represented our interests in every area of the transaction, and was instrumental in getting our offer accepted by the seller. We are immensely satisfied with our purchase, and would not hesitate to recommend Raymond's service to others."
-Mary Psinka Senior Partner, Law Firm
" Raymond was a very knowledgeable agent, He managed to get me the foreclosure home that I wanted by persistence and negotiation with the banks and listing agents. He got me the best possible price for the home AND closed on time even though I was out of the country for most of Escrow!
Raymond is extremely easy to work with by telephone,fax, and email if you travel excessively for business, I will definitely recommend him!"

Regarding sale of my property
on 37th St in San Diego:
“Ray was an extremely helpful and professional agent. I experienced clear communication and thorough follow-through with all aspects of the sale of my home. He had constructive ideas and proactive suggestions to achieve the results I desired as well as optimal financial gain from the transaction. I had a very good understanding as to what I could expect to transpire, the timelines for various stages of the process and the contingencies that might arise along the way. He returned all phone calls and email correspondence in a very timely manner, which I appreciated immensely. He provided not only good service, but extra effort when needed.” “I would definitely recommend him as a real estate agent.”
-Melissa Meyers, Regional Sales Representative
“As a former Realtor I know when someone goes above and beyond what is expected and that is exactly what Ray did. After four months, and seven offers we found the perfect house for me. Ray was always available and very knowledgeable on the short sale and forclosure homes we were looking at. I highly recommend his services to anyone who wants personalized and professional service.”
-Debbie Thomas Human Resources Manager
"Ray is personable and energetic. His proactive style was clearly the reason for my bids acceptance and accelerated processing through closing. Dealing with the seller's two banks, the short sale marketplace, competing bids, my lender and the VA, he was able to smoothly get me into my new home in two months. Thanks Ray."
