More About Me

There is Always a Solution

Buying or selling a home is a process where unexpected challenges are the norm, and I always find a solution to make the process stress-free.

My success in residential real estate draws from my strong analytical and negotiating skills developed during more than 20 years working as a software/firmware engineer for companies such as Compaq and Hewlett Packard. I constantly work to upgrade my skills with courses emphasizing principles and techniques of residential real estate as part of my commitment to best serve my clients.

I am involved in community organizations and the public schools in Orinda, where I have resided for the last twenty years with my husband and two children. I am a steering committee member of Neighbor to Neighbor which is an initiative between Lafayette Orinda Presbyterian Church (LOPC), Temple Isiah (TI), and San Ramon Valley Islamic Center (SRVIC), Interfaith Women Circles and a member of the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County (ICCCC). I work to create more understanding in the community I live in, and bring that into my work as an agent. Home is community, and I know these communities so intimately, that I can help you find the perfect place to be.

Dear Maram:

We would like to commend you and thank you for the assistance you provided us on the dual-transaction of our properties. At the sale of our home, you provided us with comprehensive information and analysis of the surrounding properties and the influential market forces. And with the purchase of our new home, your assisted us with a great personalized service all the way through the transaction. With both of these transactions, you demonstrated outmost professionalism and personal care not generally found in all real estate services. Your enthusiasm, honesty, market knowledge and perseverance made us comfortable and eager to continue our search in a very volatile real estate market. I will recommend you to my friends and family for their real estate needs.

We have something to celebrate today… We just sold our house with the help of a competent and tough Real Estate professional…Maram Bata.

Maram used solid negotiating skills and unique marketing techniques to sell our home at the right price. She did all of this work while we were out of town. She took care of all the arrangements that were needed to market our house and get us the highest possible price. We highly recommend Maram as a valuable resource for all of your Real Estate needs.

We had a great experience working with Maram. She was very diligent in helping us look for a house that met our requirements. She never imposed her impression of a particular home on us, but instead let us reach our own conclusions. Thanks to her diligence and impartiality, we are very happy to say that we found the house that most closely met our requirements. The house is wonderful and thanks to a home insurance clause that Maram put into our contract, we have saved thousands of dollars repairing things in the house that needed repair. We strongly recommend Maram as a real estate agent.
