For the past 9 years Rama Mehra has built a strong reputation throughout San Ramon, Danville, Dublin and Pleasanton for her loyal, committed and down to earth approach. A straightforward consultant and fun-loving entertainer, Rama prides herself on handling every detail with diligence. Whether she’s marketing a San Ramon listing, or orchestrating her annual client appreciation party, Rama ensures everyone is taken care of from start to finish.
Decorated with accolades, Rama’s client-centric style proves to pay off. The San Ramon-based top producer was ranked #1 agent in the Keller Williams Danville office for both 2012 and 2013, and #35 of the 90,000 company agents worldwide. For the past two years, Rama also received the Five Star and Pinnacle Awards for client satisfaction and highest level of production.
Yet, unlike other Realtors, Rama’s background gives her a unique understanding of people. Born and raised in India, Rama emigrated from Nairobi, Kenya in 1999 after a family vacation to the U.S. resulted in a job offer with an east coast Indian radio station.Rama’s 17 years experience in the media industry has transferred well to real estate, giving her an edge in effective communication. Whether using her skills to communicate with clients or feel out the commitment level of potential buyers, Rama helps sellers find genuine, quality prospects.
“My background helps me understand people’s comfort levels. Observing their body language, and tone can reveal things they may not be saying,” she says. Familiar with housing preferences common in non-western cultures, Rama markets listings to appeal to the desires of a variety of backgrounds, maximizing potential offers. Because she’s such a big listing agent in the San Ramon area, she has an abundance of helpful, experiential insight. “Because I work with so many clients in the area, I can easily identify serious offers,” says Rama. “I know which agents represent committed clients, and that information is very valuable.”
Having proven herself time and time again, Rama’s leveraged relationships with local Realtors works to her clients’ advantage. Her commendable reputation and diligent follow-up help sellers get top dollar for their home. “I make it a point to call every buyer’s agent who sends in an offer. I acquire detailed insight on who each client is, what their motivation is, and if their loan pre-approvals are genuine.” While she loves seeing a smiling face at the end of a transaction, Rama’s work doesn’t end there. Dedicated to her client’s success, her buyers and sellers know they can count on her years after the initial sale. “I have a deep loyalty to my clients that never goes away,” says Rama. “For example, I’m currently short-selling a home for a client in Oakland. She was my very first real estate client in January 2005, and we’ve stayed in touch ever since then.”
An active community member, Rama supports the San Ramon Cricket Association and is currently a Grand Sponsor of the Athletic Boosters for Dougherty Valley High School and a Platinum Sponsor for California High School. When taking a break from work, Rama enjoys traveling with her husband and business partner, Sunil and their two sons. Her eldest, Shiv, is the lead guitarist for Deaf Heaven, a black metal band recently ranked #1 in their genre by Rolling Stones magazine. Her youngest, Varun, graduated from Academy of Arts and is a creative and visualization artist for the Experience Project.
When she’s not working or traveling, Rama enjoys cooking and entertaining for family and friends.“I love making sure people are taken care of. It surfaces in many parts of my life. Whether I’m hosting guests or guiding clients, I’m a bit of a ‘mommy dearest.’”
