Hello! My name is Michael Ramos and I am a Realtor in the South Bay Area. My Wife, Kristin, and I live in Santana Row and like to think of ourselves as a local experts of the surrounding area. In our spare time we enjoy BBQing with friends, wine tasting and traveling.
While I pride myself on my knowledge and familiarity of Santa Clara County, I have also helped clients as far away as Monterey County, Sacramento County and San Joaquin County. My educational background includes a BA in Business Administration and over 1000 hours of Continuing Education Courses in Real Estate Related Subjects.
My main field of expertise is Single Family Residential Properties. I specialize in First Time Homebuyers and Out-of-State Sellers. I have participated in over 200 transactions including Short Sales, REOs, and FHA, Conventional, VA and Home path Loan Programs, to name a few. I strive to provide the most comprehensive list of services that are standard for all of my clients. I go above and beyond the duties of the typical agent to ensure that I exceed the expectations of everyone that I work with.View My Profile

Joyce grew up in Sunnyvale and lived in the South Bay until she moved to El Dorado County in the early 2000’s where she began her career in real estate. In 2005, she was lured back to the Silicon Valley as the tech sector was on the rise again. Joyce was fortunate to work at companies like Google, Yahoo!, LinkedIn, and Apple.
