  • Ryan listed and sold my home

      We were very happy having Ryan as our Realtor when we sold our home. Ryan was direct, knowledgable and had a clear vision on how best to present our home on the market. We took his advice and made a few repairs and updates to the home. He priced it well and it sold within the month for asking price. We were already out of state by then but Ryan kept the transaction moving and helped us negotiate with buyers to get the price we hoped for.

    • Ryan listed and sold my home

        When we chose Ryan to sell our home we hit the jackpot!! He is knowledgable, professional & caring. He explained the whole process to us and then proceeded to sell our home in record time.!! It's too bad he can't be cloned so everyone could experience his expertise in real estate. He's the best!!

      • Ryan helped us purchase our first home in Claremont. By growing up here his entire life he was familiar with the various neighborhoods in the City and was able to recommend what neighborhoods met our needs. He goes above and beyond to make sure you get the best deal and will keep you fully informed throughout the entire home buying experience. I would recommend Ryan if you're looking to buy in Claremont or the surrounding area.

      • Ryan did a great job helping us sell our condo. His pricing strategy was accurate and he got us an excellent price. From beginning to end he made the process very easy. If your looking to sell or buy a house we highly recommend Ryan Zimmerman.Thank you Ryan for your 5 star service !

        - Mike Vogel
      • This was the first time I ever sold a home, and I am so grateful that Ryan was my agent. He was incredibly knowledgeable and professional, regardless of circumstance. He went out of his way to make the process as stress-free for me as he possibly could. Part of the way through the sale process I had to leave the state for work, but thanks to the wonders of technology, and his infinite patience, I was always just as involved and in the loop as if I was right there in town. If I ever return to the area again I will without a doubt call Ryan before I do anything else. I just can't recommend him highly enough!

        - Louise Yoho
      • When I purchased my home in Claremont 7 years ago, Ryan's expertise made it about as stress-free as it could be. It was a big decision and his patience and understanding was greatly appreciated. He always took time to explain every aspect of the process. Even now, years later when I have questions about the market or real estate in general, Ryan is quick to reply with knowledgeable and thoughtful answers. Today perhaps the highest compliment that can be given is that of trust - and I know Ryan is a professional with great integrity whom you can trust. And after all, he did win Realtor of the Year!!!

        - Lisa Marin
      • Ryan helped my family and I sell our condo and buy a house in Claremont last year. It was a great experience, and I don't think it could have been easier or less stressful! Ryan is extremely knowledgable about the housing market; and helped us find confidence through a sometimes difficult process. Ryan was very responsive and addressed any concerns we had. In addition to being an excellent real estate agent, Ryan is a really nice guy. We would definitely work with Ryan again in the future.

        - Jessica Alampay
      • When it came time to sell my home, there was only one person to call! Ryan made the entire process a piece of cake. He gave me great advice and guided me every step of the way. I never felt stressed or uninformed; I knew I could trust that I was being taken care of like family. Ryan is incredibly professional, and handled what could have been a grudging process (selling the home because of divorce) with aptitude and sensitivity. I look forward to buying a home with his help in the future.

        - Melissa Pfanennsteil

In 2005 he quickly and efficiently sold our house on 7th St. in Claremont, CA.Recently I asked him to find me a lot for a 7,000 sq. ft. home with a great view, a secluded site, and a challenge for my engineers.

      • After deciding to downsize from a larger home that my husband and I had been in for 28 years I made the phone call to get the ball rolling. From the first telephone conversation, I knew this gentleman would be able to get the job done.Ryan is very knowledgeable and professional. We had a very positive experience selling our home. The transaction from start to finish was swift, pleasant and any questions we had were answered thoroughly and this made us feel at ease.We highly recommend Ryan Zimmerman for listing your home. You won't regret it.Thanks again Ryan

        - Rebecca Marano
      • Ryan went above and beyond for us when selling our house, not only did he respond promptly and thoroughly to all of our calls and questions, he also navigated a delicate family situation with patience and upmost professionalism. He's a true 'Claremontian' and knows the city like no other! It was truly a pleasure working with him. Highly recommend.

        - Michelle Tran
      • We just closed escrow today, partnering with Ryan as our listing agent. He was awesome... From the first time we met and he walked through the house thru today, he was the epitome of professionalism and organization. He worked with us on a reasonable list price, staging and beautiful photography, and managing a brokers walk thru. We received a full ask offer in five days and Ryan walked us through the offer and all of the potential pitfalls and benefits of the offer. When we accepted, Ryan advocated for us and made sure the escrow moved along. Because we were so busy with two full time jobs and two kids, Ryan worked with is via email, text, and docusign. Selling a home is incredibly stressful and Ryan made the process as painless as possible. He was awesome and we cannot recommend him highly enough.

      • Selling our home in Claremont this past January was trying and nerve racking due to the buyers lender and there ridiculous ways of doing business. THANK GOODNESS I had the intelligence to hire the professionalism and expertise of Ryan Zimmerman as our agent. Ryan was THERE every step of the way, dealing with the issues that arose from the buyers agent and lender, communicating with us daily, and assuring us that everything was in order. Ryan knew how to handle issues in a professional way, whereas if it were me I would not have had the patience that was called for. His understanding, professionalism, communicative excellence, and calming aura helped make a difficult situation one of stability and comfort. He was fantastic in answering all the questions I had, and believe me I had many. You would be wise to call Ryan in order to represent you in any real estate adventures. Ryan will always have my business. Thank you Ryan for always explaining what was going on in the sale of our house and assuring me that everything would work out.

      • Ryan helped us sell our Claremont home in October/November 2016. Our timeline was crazy. I had a new job offer in Oregon. So mid September we started packing up. Ryan had some great home improvement suggestions to present the house in best possible way. October 3rd we left for Oregon and gave Ryan the keys. The listing went up a week later and a week after that we had multiple offers. After accepting an offer is when things really got tough. Inspections, appraisals, request for repairs, counters. Ryan was a steady hand through it all. We went back and forth with the buyers and Ryan was really good at tough negotiating on our behalf while keeping the deal on the table. I was able to handle all the paperwork via the mail or docusign and I could always get him on the line when I had a question. In the end we got exactly what we hoped for. It's really to bad I can't use him to buy my new house in Oregon.

      • Straight shooter throughout the entire process. Helped us find the house of our dreams for a fair price.

      • Ryan Zimmerman was referred to me as "the best agent in Claremont" and he deserves this reputation. He is authentic and knowledgeable. He returns calls and emails at lightening speed. Ryan was our salesman, analyst, negotiator, marketer, and consultant while paying attention to every detail. He is a true neighborhood expert with access to a network of professionals. We will continue to refer Ryan Zimmerman the way he was referred to us. He is "the best."

        - Randee Palmer
      • While looking for a Realtor to help in my search for a house in the Claremont Village area I looked to YELP to find someone. I came across Ryan's information and sent him an email. Within the hour of emailing him he was quick to respond and throughout the shorter than expected process he was always available and very good with follow up. I lived and still currently live in San Francisco and still felt comfortable while working with Ryan from afar. All the reviews I read and I'm sure you will read are spot on. I would refer any and everyone to working with Ryan. Easy going personality. Gives great unbiased opinions and following up as well as through are his strong suits.

      • Ryan did a great job selling our house . He's very knowledgeable about the Claremont market, doesn't waste a minute, and has a great attention to detail. I highly recommend him.

        - William Kitch
      • We first met Ryan 3 years ago when we bought our condo in Claremont. He was great to work with throughout our purchase - a total professional and extremely knowledgeable about the Claremont market. When we decided to buy a house in Claremont, we turned to Ryan to help us find the right home. He did a fabulous job helping us understand the market and determine the best options for us. When we found the right home, he coordinated a complex contingent sale, managing concurrent closings on the purchase of our home and the sale of our condo. He handled the entire process with such skill and professionalism that everything went very smoothly. Ryan is an excellent realtor and we highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a house in this area.
