I respect their Honesty, Experience, personal ethics, overall knowledge in real estate practices, legal issues and most importantly, their personal availability. (They personally answer their phone and return messages almost immediately)
I met Mr. Ho (Raymond) about 4 years ago at a local open house on our block in SF. Immediately upon talking with him for only a few minutes I was quite impressed with his personality and professional demeanor. As a former law enforcement professional, I am very good at judging people and their ability to speak truthfully. I liked Raymond from when we first met, he was friendly, informative and courteous throughout our conversation. He understood my real estate issues and we exchanged contact info that day.
I followed him on Facebook and Zillow for several years watching him grow as a real estate professional. When the time came to list our property in SF (sunset area), I considered no one else as an agent and recommended him to my family. I insisted we call him for a review and we were all quite pleased with his abilities, professionalism and knowledge of the local market.
He guided and assisted from beginning to end in how to sell our house and obtain the best return value. I have only positive and grateful comments to say about Mr. Ho and Ms. Angelica Santa Maria. If your looking to buy or sell real estate in the San Francisco/bay Area, I highly recommend calling this team as they will do everything possible to meet your personal needs in this business.
Myself and my family partners were all 100% satisfied the entire real estate process from beginning to end. We maximized our return on some necessary repairs before the sale and he made the actual sale quick, direct and painless as possible. I highly recommend this team (Raymond and Angelica) for all your real estate needs.

Winnie and Raymond were our real estate agents for the sale of our condominium in Mission Bay. We had purchased a house before the sale of our condominium so we needed a quick sale. Winnie and Raymond were very accommodating to our needs. They helped with coordinating the refresh of our appliances, painting, as well as staging. They are well connected with people who do these things and that made everything quite easy. Winnie and Raymond also communicated well with us through multiple channels. After we refreshed the condo the turnaround to a sale was quick. Their recommendation for a listing price was well thought out. I would recommend the two of them as real estate agents to our friends and family without hesitation. They made the selling process as easy as possible.
– Joey Dybunpin
We met Raymond at an open house he was hosting back in 2013. Although we already had an agent, that agent wasn't stepping up as much as we would've liked. There was something about Raymond's energy and our conversation with him that day that made us switch to him. Since he has helped us buy and sell properties. He's proactive go-getter, very friendly and knows what he is doing.
– Afroz Subedar
Millions thanks to Raymond & Angelica!!! They are the BEST!!! We are so glad that we found them to sell our house. They are very professional and always respond quickly regardless day or night. I will definitely refer them to all my friends and family. Again, thank you both so much for your hard work, Raymond and Angelica!!!
– Lily Pang
Raymond is the ultimate professional his attention to detail is awesome! He staged and marketed my home that gave it great exposure to all walks of life. If you want to sell you home for a great price and in record time..... don't hesitate and have Raymond represent you as your agent.
– Cheng Family
Raymond helped my father with a home purchase few years back and recently again with a sale. Both times he proved to be very knowledgeable about the market and willing to go the extra mile.
With the home we recently sold he had a clear plan of how to maximize the sale price and guided us through the process step by step such as paint touch up, adding fence, etc.
He is very responsive, organized, and does not let anything slip through the cracks. He has great positive energy and is clearly passionate about helping his clients. Raymond has definitely earned our trust and business going forward.
– Subedar Family
As first-time homesellers, we're very happy we chose Raymond and Angelica as our realtors and we'll highly recommend them to anyone we know who are looking for help in the SF bay area real estate market!
Raymond is super professional and efficient. He gave us expert advice on home upgrades and marketing strategies. He knows really well about our neighborhood, as well as the potential buyers’ preferences. We’ve learned to trust him and Angelica completely, since they are always so responsive, hardworking, flexible and detail-oriented. They are able to make the whole process as smooth and stress-free as possible. Thank you so much for your great work, Raymond!
– Ji and Mavis
Angelica & Raymond,
Thank you so much for making our dreams turn into reality! Your attention to detail, expertise of the market & overall high- customer service has been greatly appreciated by our family. Trust is not an easy thing to earn nowadays, however your thoughtfulness, thoroughness, & determination to look out for our best interest throughout the staging & selling process has definitely earned our TRUST. We always felt comfortable & knew we would be in good hands with your recommendations as you & Raymond helped guide us thru this process.
We can’t thank you enough for the hard work & dedication you have provided us & are extremely grateful to know you helped set us up for future endeavors.
Kudos to “Team Angelica & Raymond” for getting us $200K+ over asking price in just 7 days!!!
Love and gratitude from The Marzan Family.
– The Marzan Family
Raymond and Angelica, what a great team! There were the ultimate professionals in dealing with us. From beginning to end, they communicated with us clearly and promptly. Their attention to every detail was superb. The sale of our home was a smooth and very satisfying experience. They sold our home for much more than we ever expected and we are so happy and grateful.
We just love these kids; they are like family to us now. We are going to miss talking to them almost every day and seeing them often since we are moving out of the area. We felt like we were their only clients despite them working on multiple listings with other sellers and helping buyers find homes as well. They gave us the most thoughtful and personal gift at closing and it will be a lovely memory close to our hearts. We highly recommend them to anyone interested in buying or selling a home!
– Socrates & Athanasia Papalias
Purchasing your first home could be nerve-wracking, stressful and overwhelming. I didn't even know where to begin. I am overjoyed I found Raymond as he made the whole experience simple and as stress-free as possible.
First of all, he is extremely professional and is very knowledgeable with the market. He explained and broke down the process every step of the way to make sure I was understanding everything I was getting into and that I made informed decisions. He is a great listener and made sure our needs and requests were put into consideration. He was always available when needed whether via phone or email.
I immediately felt very comfortable putting my faith and trust in Raymond. With his help, considering this hot and competitive housing market, he helped us find the perfect home, put together a strong offer, and quickly closed the deal.
I would hands down work with Raymond again in the future. He's your man for your real estate needs!
– Carmela A.
Angelica and Raymond deliver outstanding service with a smile, making the home buying process as smooth and stress-free as possible.
As a first-time homebuyer, I learned to trust them completely. They listened to what I wanted in a property and to my Ideas about future plans, then delivered listings that matched my criteria. It was reassuring to have such knowledgeable and experienced realtors to guide me along each step of the way. Either one of them were available to answer questions at any hour, and they both worked overtime on the day we submitted the offer. Their expert advice helped me put a competitive offer in front of the seller, and the first offer was accepted.
Angelica and Raymond work extremely well together. I can tell by their interactions that they have worked as a team for a long time. Their relationship helps everything run smoothly and also adds an element of fun. Not only do they have a great relationship with each other, but they have phenomenal connections with everyone involved. They connected us with all resources necessary: lender, inspector, title company, insurance agents, etc. If any correspondence or progress was stalled, all I had to do was tell Angelica or Raymond and they made the calls necessary to remedy the situation. They also had a communication channel open with the listing agent, so all my questions about utilities and appliances were answered promptly. Their attention to detail, connections, and rapport in the field made it pleasurable to work with them.
On the day I was to sign on the house, FedEx had guaranteed the papers be delivered to the title company that morning. When we arrived at the title company, the package was not yet delivered. FedEx informed them that the shipment was delayed and would be delivered later the same day. This small setback did not hinder Angelica's and Raymond's ability to provide top notch service. They dropped me off at an office of my company, so I could go on with my workday, then returned to pick me up once the papers arrived. Excellent customer service!
Angelica's and Raymond's exceptional service does not end when the home purchase is complete. They offered to provide recommendations for future remodeling projects and will remain in contact.
I'm happy I chose them as my realtors and will recommend them to anyone I know who is looking for help in the real estate market.
– Dawn Hirsch and Daniel Hirsch
Working with Raymond is working with worry-free. I feel like buying a house is much easier than buying a car. It is simple as: Me: I want to buy a house. Raymond: Here is the key. It is that easy. Thank you Raymond. 🙏
– R. W.
I began working with Angelica in the Fall of 2017. She met with me and I saw instantly that she was a true professional real estate agent. She relied heavily on the most up-to-date tools such as current data on areas of San Francisco where I wanted to buy; social media tools and other real estate sites to provide me with everything I needed to purchase a home. She intuitively saw what my personal preferences were for particular locations, architecture, and personal needs for my husband and myself.
I work full-time so I could not attend open houses so she diligently showed up at all of the places I was interested in and took videos and still shots of all parts of the property. Later, that same day, she would send me the videos and pictures and with an analysis of all pros and cons. I cannot tell you how much time and frustration this saved me.
I also highly recommend Angelica and her McGuire partner, Raymond Ho, an absolute gentleman who engaged me during the viewings of the properties and asked all the right questions. He encouraged me to consider certain factors carefully before buying such as external factors surrounding the property--what was happening outside in terms of traffic congestion, convenience to transportation, etc. I really cannot say enough good things about these two, Angelica and Ray. I highly recommend them.
– Phil Cushway and Tamara Cushway
Raymond Ho has been instrumental with providing the exact search criteria during my home selection process. Not only does he provide professional advise but he goes out of his way to tell you exactly what the Market is saying. Because of him, i am extremely happy of the outcome. Having him represent you as a agent will leave you with knowledge of the market but great support and a professional individual as an extension of your team.
– Raymond K.
As we are expecting a new member in our family, we have decided to purchase a bigger home in San Francisco. Our biggest concern was that we might not be able to sell our current home and purchase our new home in time. We met Raymond through one of his open houses and told him our concerns. He analyzed our current situation and explained to us about the current real estate market in San Francisco. My husband and I felt that Raymond is someone who we can depend on, so we decided to have him represent us. Raymond was very responsible and knowledgeable every step of the way. He picked up all my calls and replied all my emails very quickly (trust me, I'm not an easy one... I'm the kinda person who need answers to everything right away) Long story short, we sold our home $280k above our listing price and our first offer was accepted 2 weeks after we closed. We will definitely contact Raymond for all our real estate needs in the future! Thank you so much again, Ray!
– Donald Ng & Becky Z Ng
This guy is the ultimate professional!!! I've worked with other agents but Raymond truly goes above and beyond for his clients! I've purchased my first home from him and he made the process quick and painless. I had my moments but Raymond was there every step of the way. Let him help you find your dream home, you won't regret it...... I didn't.
– Ron C.
Angelica and Raymond are the dream team. They both helped me through my first time selling a property in SF. They held my hand through the whole process, answering all my super-detailed questions via text, email and phone. They suggested the minimum work I needed to do to get my property in marketable condition and worked closely with the HOA, contractors and staging. They understood and worked with me trying to save costs on some of the remodeling work. They were on top of everything including HOA issues, other units for sale/sold in our building. And they helped find a great buyer that we knew would have no problems closing! They made the process painless for this first time seller and my husband and I wouldn't hesitate to use their services again for buying/selling real estate in the future!
– Adrienne & Reja Imperial
We’re the first time homebuyers and we were looking for the good fit house over a year. Raymond is extremely patient and helpful! He is professional and acknowledged. The closing process was super efficiently and he guided us painless for everything! We’re so happy with Raymond! He is the best!!!
– Ray W. Chamry L. and Family
Absolute pleasure working with you. Your professionalism and efficiency has been a breath of fresh air, by far one of the best Agents I've worked with in 17 years! I would be extremely happy to work with you again and accept another offer from one of your clients!
– Nicole C.
If you're looking for one of the best in the business, look no further. I've worked with Raymond on a personal level as well as on a professional level and both my clients and myself can attest to the results we got from Raymond that not many other realtors can produce. He is exceedingly responsive and available at all hours to guide you at your own pace. If you have a goal you're looking to accomplish, he'll get it done as urgently as you need.
– Corey G.
A "good" agent helps their clients the best they can, a "great" agent constantly and proactively seeks out opportunities for their clients and make deals happen! ~I'm talking about you, Raymond Ho -- From a generic property picture that I posted about my upcoming listing, Raymond was able to recognize the building and reached out to me for details. 3 days later after previewing the property, he and his clients submitted a strong, excellent offer that led to the closing this week. It was my pleasure to work with such great professional agents like you!
– Ann Chang
I had a wonderful experience working with Raymond for my first home purchase. He made the process seamless and stress free. He was truly a joy to work with, very professional and proactive. Would definitely recommend him to others.
– Katherine Chandler
Raymond is a fast and efficient worker no matter the size of the purchase. He will be sure to keep your deal as a top priority. Raymond will keep you up to date with market conditions and available homes that fit your criteria. No need to be worried about competition Raymond will get your offer accepted with his superb negotiation skills. Rest assured if you need a home Raymond can get you into one.
– Matthew M. and Kara L.
Raymond was greatly helpful in buying our home. He was always responsive to our questions and he spent many hours with us for researching / problem solving throughout the process. During the period of difficulty we had in the process due to unexpected issues, he patiently stayed with us and dealt with it. We would recommend Raymond to any potential home buyers and sellers.
– Yong Jin Park
Raymond has always been my number one go-to real estate agent in SF bay area since my very first home purchase in 2012 because he is highly flexible, professional, thorough, responsive, and effective.
Flexible: Raymond helps me with all of my personal and investment real estate needs. No matter how small my budget has been, he always finds me a home which works. Our working relationship has been incredibly seamless and effortless that I recommended him to my friends for whom Raymond assisted with their first home purchases.
Professional and Effective: In a red-hot seller's market, Raymond, representing me as a buyer, successfully wrote two winning offers within a week I started looking. With Raymond's professional advice, all of my newly acquired rental properties were successfully rented out within weeks' time. The fastest one was rented out within one week of the purchase.
Thorough and Responsive: Not only did Raymond answer all of my questions in great details and understandable language, he also carefully pinpointed all crucial points I needed to know in each of the real estate transaction. He made sure that all of my concerns were addressed and he went above and beyond to respond to all my communications in a timely fashion. Sometimes, i wondered if he ever got any rest. He never left me hanging and wondering what was going on. I was always informed with the latest update during the transaction.
If you are looking for a communicative and effective real estate professional who always puts your needs and goals first, Raymond is the one for you. My parents enjoy working with him tremendously and so do I and my friends. Thank you Raymond for taking out the uncertainty in real estate investments and delivering tangible results that translate into happy homebuyers and investors.
Thank you <3 DW
– Dorothy W. & Family
All I can say is that it was such a joy to work with Raymond. He is very knowledgeable and proactive. I was truly impressed that he treated every offer we made with a great deal of effort and professionalism. After our extended journey of house hunting, he found us the perfect first home that we would have missed if it wasn't for him. I'm very thankful of Raymond and won't hesitate to refer him to anyone!
– Sunil Hwang and Yoonsun Chang
Working with Raymond was great! He was able to negotiate a great deal for our very first home against other offers. He gave us peace of mind while going through this life-changing process. We will definitely be referring Raymond to our friends and family!
– Deborah and William Jaramillo
Raymond was very helpful in buying our first home. He spent a lot of time with us to figure what we were looking for and was very patient throughout the process, even when we changed our mind about certain things. Highly recommend!
– Albert and Kim Chang
Raymond exceeded any and all of my expectations. As a Firstime Homebuyer, I went into the process with the mindset that it wouldn't be easy. Working with Raymond helped make purchasing simple, clear, and efficient. From our first meeting, he invited me to his office where he took the time to really deep dive and understand what I was looking for and in what areas. That day forward, I was able to review up-to-date properties that he knew suited my needs, which really gave me the chance to find the home I wanted to look into. He answered all my questions quickly, and confidently. He really is an expert of his field, not to mention, really well connected. Buying my new home couldn't have been a better experience, and I have Raymond to thank for that. I highly recommend him! Thank you Raymond for a smooth, educating experience.
– Robin Mesina and Shirley Chen
Raymond is the best. We visited the property on a Tuesday, submitted the offer on Thursday, by the following Tuesday our offer was accepted. It was a pleasure working with Raymond, as he is knowledgeable, accommodating, very responsive, and always on time. It also helps that he is a very nice person with great energy.
– Minh B.
Thank you Raymond for standing by us all the way from the house hunting to the difficult appraisals. You went above and beyond the duty of a real estate agent to help us close the deal, and more importantly, keep it closed. This transaction would not had the same outcome if we did not have an agent with the professionalism, persistence, and dedication like you.
We will be forever grateful for your services throughout the last few month. We will continue recommending you to our close friends and loved ones.
– Paley Y. & Lyndon Z.
It was a pleasure working with Raymond Ho for the sale of our parent’s home. He was very understanding and patient in handling our situation. He took the time to understand our feelings and made sure we were comfortable before moving forward. He kept us updated every step of the way and was available to answer and questions we had. I was impressed with his marketing strategy and how he was able to get us more money than expected. Raymond is a true professional who honestly cares for his clients. I would definitely recommend his services for anyone looking to sell or buy a home.
– Daniel Woodrow
I hired Raymond after our 1st meeting, he is a very knowledgeable agent, always returned phone calls or emails on time. I feel he did get me the most i could have possibly gotten for my house. I am extremely happy with the service i received.
– Sam Deluna
I came across Raymond by chance after many soiled relationships with former agent's that just couldn't give me the what I wanted . Raymond sold my home as if it were his own. Maby offers had come my way and the agents beforehand would have surely told me to take it and run but Raymond calmly assured me that he knew the home was worth more. His staging team turned the home into such a splendor I was reluctant to sell. INCREDIBLE agent !In a sea of sharks , Raymond Ho is the ONLY agent that has been honest and delivers on every single word. A TRUE GEM!
– Charlie La
He is very responsible and tries his best to help get the house I want within my budget and tries to help me save money. He helped me do a lot of research. He always followed up with me and updated me. He gave me a lot of suggestions and is not pushy to make me buy a house that I was not very interested in. If I ever buy or sell again in the future I will definitely go back to him.
– Shelly Cheuk
Raymond is helpful throughout the whole process. He is patient and knowledgable. He provides detail about the house which does not show online either. He always kept me up to date of the property information and helped on resolving lot of little detail in a short period of time and provided answers quickly. He can also provide great references when needed. I would definitely work with Raymond again in the future.
– Ernest M.
Raymond helped me get my condo during the time when buyer competition is very high. This is my first time buying my own place and I'm so thankful that I had Raymond as my realtor. He was patient with explaining the process to me, thorough, always followed up, and always on top of everything! He is also very personal and I knew I could trust him. I don't think I would've had such a stress-free and smooth process if it wasn't for Raymond.
– Melissa Wong
Raymond Ho is very personable, reliable, and will get the deal closed for you. He's been very informative throughout the whole process and got me the house I liked in a short amount of time.
– Igor Tanas
It was a pleasure working with Raymond to sell our home! He was fully engaged with us every step of the way and worked with our timeline to sell our property. We had a trusted professional who always had our best interest in mind. Raymond was always available when we needed to communicate with him and he quickly and helpfully responded to all our questions. He was also able to provide us with reliable and affordable resources for minor repairs, renovation, and staging of our home. He helped transform our home into a stunning property that attracted top dollar!
– David Ford and Andrei Tuason
Raymond Ho has represented me in 3 transactions. My first property he assisted me as the Selling Agent. Raymond was exceptional. He showed tremendous knowledge and right from the get go when I first met him, I knew he was to be my agent. His personality and professionalism sets him apart from all other agents. Raymond handled the process of my first sale and walked me throughout the process. From beginning to the end, his service and willingness to act on my best interest was apparent.
– Ryan J. Chan
Raymond is the best! Determined and willing to go that extra mile for you. Any questions you have he will be there to answer them all and help you negotiate for the best deal possible. I had worked with two other agents before meeting Raymond. Soon after we spoke I just knew in my heart he would find me a home. He's aggressive! Just like that, a month later I'm a homeowner!
– Loann Van
Raymond Ho has done such an excellent job to close on my first SF condo! He has an aggressive attitude to get things done and stay on top of the whole process from putting in an offer all the way to the closing table. He is very knowledgable of the Bay Area markets and I always enjoy talking to him about business and other topics. Its rare to have an agent as your new friend!
