Amber Hom
Realm Real Estate
About Amber

Since 2007, Amber Hom has sold over 1,000 properties throughout Northern California. Consistently ranking in the top 10% of her field, she has found great fulfillment in a career that is perfectly suited to her love of helping people. The daughter of a single mother of four who was also a real estate agent, Amber learned early on that homeownership could help people pave a path to success. She delights in assisting clients of all ages, life situations, and backgrounds in making real estate moves that help them build wealth and boost their quality of life. Residing in Contra Costa County since 1993, Amber earned her real estate license in her early 20s and started her career at the Contra Costa County Association of Realtors®. She developed a well-rounded skill set in various aspects of the business and quickly found success — first at the association and later as an account manager at a title and escrow company. In 2007, she decided to create her own real estate practice, and she hasn’t looked back since. Amber’s certification as a Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) and her extensive work with foreclosures enable her to provide expert guidance to clients in even the most difficult circumstances. Her serene, focused approach to her work has also been shaped by her many years of practicing and teaching meditation, and she often jokes that she is actually a spiritual teacher disguised as a real estate agent. In her spare time, Amber enjoys spending time with her husband, two sons, and dog, Jojo. She loves to cook with her husband, who’s a chef; hike the Lime Ridge Trail in Concord; and watch baseball. She also gives back to her community by volunteering at her local food bank and serving on the board of Humanity Power, a social justice organization.

Rama Mehra
Asante Realty
About Rama

Rama Mehra is a Top Realtor in San Ramon, with $900M+ in sales, Rama is the real estate agent whom clients want on their side, bar none, and she has garnered industry-wide praise from clients and agents alike. Rama moved to the U.S. in 1999 from Nairobi, Kenya and first made her mark in broadcasting and the nonprofit sector before entering real estate. Part of what makes Rama a dream agent is her abundance of tenacity and grit, much of which stems from her previously challenging adjustment to a new life in the U.S. She also learned how to survive her initial years as an agent during the 2008 market collapse, while offering her empathy to the homeowners who suffered the most from it. Over the years, there has been no shortage of reasons why Rama has secured both repeat and referral business, and her dozens of industry accolades dating back to 2006 are further testaments to her glowing reputation. Rama currently lives in San Ramon and is a proud mother to two artistic, successful sons.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Martinez?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Martinez is in May.
