Allyson Ramage is an Exclusive Buyer Agent. After successful engagements at Alain Pinel and Intero, two of the more respected local luxury listing brokerages, Allyson joined forces with Andy Salamone at the Buyers' Brokerage. To continue offering only the best in service to her clients, she determined to focus all her efforts in support of buyers only.
From luxury real estate markets to first-time home-buyers, anyone who is looking for the highest level of service combined with great heart and local knowledge will benefit from working with Allyson. Besides her knowledge of eco-issues and her general real-estate expertise, Allyson knows how to help clients dig deeply to uncover latent issues with any property.
Her rock-solid negotiating skills are not only appreciated by her clients, but by listing agents also. Because of her thorough process even before helping her clients present offers, listing agents agree that a transaction with the buyer represented by Allyson is a smooth one where all parties find mutually beneficial agreements. These established relationships are priceless for a buyer facing competition with other offers (YES! This happens in this market!) or during negotiations.
But see for yourself below with just a few of the recent comments her clients and colleagues have shared. And please feel free to contact me if you'd like to speak with them directly.
What Allyson's Clients Are Saying: Anyone considering buying a home in the Bay Area would be crazy to use any other agent. She has been everything we could have dreamed- patient, warm, tenacious in protecting our interests, confident in negotiations, unbelievably thorough and simply down-right fun. I know that it... hasn't been effortless for her, but she made it effortless for us! Adam & Ruthie Y.
You are a Top Agent, A+, #1! Thank you for all your work. I'm telling everyone what a great agent you are to work with! Eden S.
Thanks for all your hard work, Allyson. We appreciate everything you've done for us. We love our new home and are so excited to be here now. I know we had a lot of questions along the way and you were always so resourceful and helpful. Carol & John
I cannot express in words how you have helped me and my family. I didn't think I'd ever be able to own my own home and you helped make it possible. You negotiated such a great price for us and helped me find the financial assistance that helped me buy our first home. Now my kids have a nice place to play. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Jim P.
Allyson, thank you so much for your help. I have always wanted to buy a little beach house to retire to and now I have it. Not only did you help me through the lengthy process, you hooked me up with all the right contractors for the remodel. Kathy M.
As a colleague, I witnessed Allyson's growth into a very capable realtor herself -- so much so that, when I gave up my business, it was Allyson whom I chose to service my clients. I knew dozens, if not hundreds, of Realtors, in Santa Cruz County and even served with many of them on committees and boards. I had determined, however, upon close analysis that not even one other Realtor would have been able to come close to providing the level of capable service that she had provided my clients and her own over the years. Shagufta B. Thank you Allyson. You made it easy for us even though we were out of state and your creative ideas worked, even in this market!Vince A.
