I am beyond satisfied with Raymond, and his partner, Angelica. My wife and I had a lower budget which significantly limited the number of home listings. Rather than settling with a condo, we were persistent in buying a single-family home. Raymond and Angelica did not give up on us. Angelica was especially patient with us as she had brought us to check out several homes each month, even during Covid times! They are responsive and knowledgeable, and they do remember to follow up on questions that they were not able to immediately answer. We managed to close on a home we had very little hope on. Even in a seller's market, Raymond and Angelica were able to help us negotiate on the property although we did not nearly have the highest bid. They were very honest with us when we were eyeing property that were unrealistically achievable. Instead of pressuring us to increase our bid, I felt that they were looking out for us and not bidding above our financial means. Anyone can acquire a real estate license, but Raymond and Angelica go the extra mile. Even after we had closed, Raymond and Angelica continued to follow up on everything, including acquiring permits for code compliance. This is not just a 9-5 job for them, as they had continuously responded to us even later into the evening hours. I also really liked the search engine that they provided. It made searching so much easier than other websites. I highly recommend Raymond and Angelica! Would give 6 out of 5 stars if possible.

Raymond and Angelica are very knowledgeable in every aspect of what they are doing . They’re very helpful and very approachable. They helped me sell my house in a matter of a week and made me happy for the proceeds . I’m very grateful to have them as my realtors, very precise and honest and most of all they became my friends . I highly recommend Raymond and Angelica.

What an incredible experience working with Raymond and Angelica! Prior to our first meeting they had clearly done their homework. In Raymond's own words, we were presented with a "bullet proof" strategy which resulted in a sale within days of the listing nearly $200k above asking price! I couldn't ask for better representation! Many thanks for setting our expectations and exceeding them!
– Alan Zusman
To Angelica and Raymond millions of thanks to you. They are professional and take the time to make this thing right. They have the experience and knowledge to help me sell my property and guide every step of the way. Thank you again
Angelica and Raymond. Thankful! Thumbs up!

From day one we knew Angelica was exceptional and that we were in the best hands. We sent her a message late at night letting her know we were interested in selling our first home and buying a home in our dream neighborhood thinking we would probably hear from her in the morning. Not only did we hear back from her immediately, but we were on the road with her that next morning looking at houses. Angelica was nothing short of amazing during our journey. She is a pro at what she does and we had full trust in her ability to deliver. She involved us in every decision and every plan. We always felt that she had our best interest at heart. She was very responsive, always professional, and definitely a positive energy to be around. Even with her busy schedule, she made us feel like we had all of her attention. She had an answer for every obstacle we faced, and she also made us feel reassured when we were scared or nervous. She has an exceptional insight into the housing market, and carries with her a methodical and comprehensive way of navigating through it. We sold our home well above our asking price in just one week, and now our family lives in our dream home in our dream neighborhood. Not only did Angelica get us to this point, but she also became family to us, and we will always be grateful! If you need to buy or sell a home, call Angelica and you will not be disappointed!

It was a great pleasure working with Angelica. She is very professional, courteous, responsive, efficient and thorough and made purchasing my home a smooth transaction. I felt I was in good hands throughout the whole process. I would definitely consider hiring her again in the future and highly recommend Angelica to my friends and family.

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.

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
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.

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
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
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.

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.

I was expressing the discouragement I was feeling as a first time home buyer in the San Francisco Bay Area market and the difficulties I was having in finding a realtor that has my best interest, without a second thought my lender said, “Let me introduce you to Angelica!” We were virtually introduced and Angelica being the responsive, proactive, dedicated person she is, insisted we meet in person.
At introduction, Angelica was very personable and professional. I provided her with my goals and constraints and with confidence she said, “We can do this!” We went shopping that Sunday and the following Thursday my offer was accepted! When it came time to sign, Angelica sincerely made an appoint to be there to show her support and celebrate with me.
Seven months into home ownership, she is still around following up with me and still answering my questions. Whenever asked, without a doubt, I highly recommend working with Angelica! Thank you Angelica may more success and achievements come your way!
– Sharon Gorospe
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!

Ms. Angelica Santamaria was referred to us by our lender, Linda Munoz from EverBank. During our initial meeting, Angelica asked us questions to gauge our knowledge as well as our needs in the home-buying process. Since we were first time home buyers, she explained the process in simple terms, which led us to fully understand what we were getting into. She gave us listings (and vice versa) and showed us homes until we found the one we loved.
Angelica worked closely with us and our lender from the beginning through escrow and until the final day when we got our keys! We communicated through texts, phone calls and emails, to which she promptly responded at all times. She is very knowlegeable and a super go -getter. I don't think she slept at all until we finally moved into our home! Angelica also provided us with sound advice on whether or not to pursue certain listings. We were very satisfied with her skills that we referred her to our daughter, who also found a suitable home through her efforts!
In closing, we highly recommend Angelica for her utmost professionalism and expert knowledge as a realtor. We will not hesitate to recommend her to our family and friends.

I'm not sure if I can truly do justice to how AWESOME and AMAZING Angelica is, but I will try! My husband and I are first time home buyers, and were super wary of this crazy Bay Area real estate market. From beginning to end, Angelica made the process exceptionally smooth (and quick!).
To give you an idea of the timeline: we had an introductory meeting with her on a Wednesday, she connected us with multiple lender options to get us pre-approved by that Friday, viewed houses with her over the weekend, and by the following Monday had an accepted offer! I know that's not always the case, but I am positive this was made possible through Angelica's hard work and expertise. Not only is she super knowledgeable and personable, but she was very responsive and flexible as we progressed through the escrow stages. She is so dedicated to her clients and it really shows!
We cannot thank you enough Angelica for making our dream a reality! You are such the best!
– Miranda & Brian Conway
My wife and I are so happy we picked Angelica to be our real estate agent. She is hard working and extremely knowledgeable about the bay area/SF market. She made us feel so comfortable asking her questions about any and everything related to our home search. I do not think we would have been able to secure a home in such a great neighborhood (West Portal/Inner Parkside) at our price point if it wasn't for her amazing network and negotiating skills. She also is very easy to work with and was great at keeping me calm in this crazy market.
She made us feel like we were her only clients, even though I know she was busy selling and finding homes for other clients at the same time. Angelica also has so many trusted contractors to help with anything you may need for your new home, from inspectors to locksmiths to plumbers to general contractors, she knows great people everywhere and always makes sure to get you multiple quotes.
We really couldn't be happier with our new home or our choice of agent. Call Angelica if you need to buy or sell a home!
– Kyle & Monica Auclair
Highly recommend Angelica. She is very knowledgeable and really on top of the market with lots of energy and enthusiasm. Also very easy to work with!

Angelica is an outstanding agent with a great reputation.
– Yulia Mitchell
Angelica is AMAZING at what she does! She is a master of her craft and will help you find and secure the home of your dreams. She is a professional, extremely knowledgeable and dedicated... exactly who you want helping you with your real estate needs in the Bay Area.
When my fiance and I were looking to purchase our first home this past year, she helped us understand the whole process step by step, answered any questions we had at any time of the day, and provided us advice and guidance throughout the journey of buying our home. She made us feel at ease and supported when we had minor stressful moments. You can tell she truly cares about her clients. She has a great personality and always keeps it real. She will not push you into a situation to make you feel uncomfortable and she will negotiate her butt off to get you the best deal.
After a few months of searching, she helped us close on the best home we could ask for in this competitive market.
We would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home with no hesitation!
– Nawal Wahhab
Angelica is an AMAZING individual and professional. She loves what she does and it shows, through her upbeat personality and her happy buyer and seller clients! Highly recommend.
– Kristine Pinon
There aren't enough kind words and wholehearted thank you's that I can say or give to express what Angelica and her team has done for me and my family. The stresses of buying/selling a home can be insane-to say the least, but she made every step secure and as comfortable as can be. She is full of warmth, a beautiful soul and personality, but most of all she demonstrates the care and dedication to always put her best foot forward for you! I would highly recommend Angelica Santamaria, what a gem! When in doubt, she is the way to go 100%!!
Without a doubt, Angelica and her team know what they are doing and go above and beyond. I couldn't be happier with my choice to have her along for the crazy ride of selling our family home. I know we definitely encountered some speed bumps, but they were handled like a champ and I felt safe the whole way through.I hope Angelica and her team realize just how much of an impact they have and in the best way ever! She is so kind-hearted and always has a thought in her mind for you! With every situation she was determined to bring me and my family the best possible outcome, and for that, I am forever grateful!!! Two very high thumbs up!!!
– Jennifer Moore
Still early in my investment opportunity research process, I met Angelica through a friend and she was gracious enough to spend quite a bit of time getting to know me and my game plan. She's very knowledgeable about the Bayview and other developing areas of opportunity and its current state of transformations. Angelica invited me to an open house on Palou Ave and I was very impressed by her remodeling and staging team's work. Angelica and her team are definitely a valuable resource I will rely upon once the time is right.
– Eli Angote
I was lucky enough to work with Angelica earlier this month. It is always a pleasure to work with an agent that is honest, professional, and really knows her stuff! She represented her clients best interests every step of the way and helped get them an amazing new home! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell in the SF Bay Area.
