Ramiro, I cannot thank you enough for the sale of my Pasadena property. Your professionalism and continuous help through this very difficult sale are greatly appreciated. I hope that you will use me as a reference in the future. This was a difficult property to sell and with all your help and great amount of time needed to clear up issues with this sale goes far above the duties of your job.
Thank you again,
I’ve known Ramiro Rivas for more than 20 years now. I could have sought the real estate services of other Realtors but chose Ramiro based on his expertise and experience of the San Gabriel Valley and on knowing that he will advocate for my interests. He is very knowledgeable about neighborhoods in Pasadena, Altadena, Alhambra and South Pasadena (my search radius). This knowledge helped me in deciding where I wanted to place my focus in my home search. In today’s market you want someone that is efficient and technologically savvy; Ramiro fits that role perfectly. On a few occasions I had the luxury of having both Ramiro and Erica Swanson of Keller Williams Realty Pasadena to show available homes for sale. The result: assurance that all have a vested interest in securing a home for you. If you are looking for an agent that is flexible, determined and persistent then Ramiro Rivas is your agent!
Joe and I would like to let you know how deeply appreciative we are of your efforts to help us find a home. You have been most patient, kind and hardworking, and in every aspect an excellent agent, a person we can highly recommend to our friends.
With our most sincere thanks,
Joe and Artemis
The level of professionalism combined with the personal touch put forth by both members of our team was extremely comforting. We knew we were being very well represented at all times, and recommend them to all of our friends who are interested in home buying. Ramiro and Erica told us from the beginning that they would do whatever it took to push the deal through, and they did just that. We are in our new home, raising our family. Thank you, Ramiro and Erica, you have made our dreams a reality.

The Ramiro Rivas supported us for several years patiently scouring the Pasadena area housing market until it was the right climate for us to purchase a home. They were highly knowledgeable about the area and were able to show us areas we would have never found on our own. When the time came, they found not only the right first home, they found us our dream home! They aggressively helped us throughout the whole purchasing process and made it as stress free as possible.
Thank you so much for the help you provided in getting us our home. We absolutely love it and have your team to thank!

Ramiro, as a real estate professional, I truly appreciated the time and effort your team put forth in selling my property. You handled the unique challenges of my situation and were very responsive to my needs. I have no hesitation in recommending you to family and friends, and will be calling on you again.
Thanks to Ramiro Rivas and Erica Swanson, We couldn’t have had a better first-time home-buying experience. My agents really helped through every step of the process, keeping things stress-free and running as smoothly as possible. Ramiro Rivas was very knowledgeable, an excellent negotiator, and has helped us in this first time experience tremendously. They definitely exceeded our expectations in every way you can imagine. We’ll never look anywhere else for all of our future real estate needs. I have already recommended them to friends and will continue to do so. Thank you!

When we started the process of looking for an agent to help us I was very concerned. We needed someone who could both sell our character craftsman home effectively and also help us find a suitable place in South Pasadena. Our situation was complicated by our own financial limitations, credit approvals, moving schedules and personal obligations. In every case, Ramiro found a solution for our problem. He has a vast network of contacts that helped us with each hurdle.
I met Ramiro and Erica at one of their listings and was struck by their grasp of selling to the modern buyer. They use the internet to it’s fullest advantage to reach an enormous audience. Before my house was even on the market they had created such a buzz about our home that it sold in 17 days! Ramiro and Erica write blogs on homes and lifestyle, they create websites around their featured homes, they personally delivered mailers of our home in the area, they timed our open houses with the Bungalow Heaven tour of homes. Their marketing skills are truly outstanding.
Ramiro and Erica were always there for us. Anytime we had a question or concern the answer was explained to us clearly and methodically. Everything that Ramiro said would happen did happen just as he said. We always felt prepped for the next step in the process.
Above all else I felt I could trust Ramiro and Erica. I felt that they genuinely put my families interests above their commission at every moment. I always felt that I was given a straight and honest answer. All of this leads to a very tall order to fill and Ramiro Rivas and Erica Swanson filled it!
I cannot recommend Ramiro Rivas and his associate Erica Swanson enough for providing top notch service in the selling and purchase of a home. My husband Anthony and I retained the services of Ramiro to sell my two bed/one bath Pasadena Condo on the recommendation of a neighbor and I have since continued to recommend Ramiro to anyone I know who is facing a real estate need. In selling your home he is exceedingly professional and dedicated to the best interest of you as the seller, fighting for the best price and conditions of sale. Also, this being our first experience selling a home, Ramiro was very patient in answering all our questions and keeping us in the loop in terms of the progress of viewings, offers, and eventually an unusually long escrow. What turned out to be a somewhat stressful and untypical sale escrow was tempered by the dedication and professionalism of Ramiro.
In the end it is Ramiro’s and Erica’s skill and expertise combined with kind hearts and easy to work with personalities that made working with them such a pleasure and why we will certainly be using them the next time we are ready to move up to our next home. The fact that Ramiro loves what he does shines through in the level of dedication he gives his clients, even after escrow closes and “his job is done.” The evening Anthony and I took possession of our new home, Ramiro was there with two packs of beer, some tools, and a helpful spirit as we began our new home’s transformation by pulling up carpet. Thank you Ramiro and Erica!
Working with Ramiro on buying our first home was a real pleasure from start to finish. He quickly learned our needs and likes and was able to find us our perfect home. He then walked us through every step of the offer and escrow processes, and has been there to help us out even after we closed escrow. At every step of the way, Ramiro answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly, which is quite impressive considering the number of questions that we had! I would certainly not hesitate to work with Ramiro again and would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Ramiro is not only very good at his job, he makes buying a home an absolute pleasure. He guided us thru the process in a peak real estate market when homes were selling very quickly. He quickly figured out what type of home suited us within our budget, and managed to help us find a “diamond in the rough” that had attracted some savvy shoppers. No matter, Ramiro came thru and we got the house. We couldn’t be happier with our choice! I can imagine he is just as good when selling a home, and I know who to call when the time comes to sell ours.
