As first time home buyers me and my husband had been saving money for years and finally felt it was time to explore options. Growing up in a mobile homes, I felt very excited to start looking at mobile homes.
We had previously been looking in other cities and had connected with another realtor and found the broker he had suggested that I later found out was a very high rate. Making our mortgage outside of our budget.
As we continued to search. I was patient knowing this was going to be a long process. Came across to an open house that Ricardo was hosting on a beautiful 2 bedroom..in our current city in Sunnyvale.
Ricardo right away seemed very knowledgeable and was very honest and upfront with the requirements needed. And even suggested to contact a Broker who he worked with closely with named Laura. Ricardo Arriagada had enlightened me to the previous loan rate I was given being too high based off my income and credit rate being good. Both Laura and Ricardo were super responsive with all of my questions. Shared with Laura our monthly budget and was honest and able to get us a better rate.
Both me and my husband work full time and have opposite schedules to provide care to our daughters, so being able to give all the required documents and signatures was difficult at times but Ricardo was always SO accommodating and flexible with my schedule. What helped tremendously was that Ricardo was bilingual, fluent in Spanish which is my husband’s first language and made things clearer.
I also appreciated his phone calls/emails/text reminders to deadlines and documents that we still needed to complete. The process itself was pretty fast. Faster then what we were expecting.
I really was thankful that the ALLIANCE office to be local in Sunnyvale which is where we were purchasing the home and also where we were currently renting. Another thing that I truly admired about ALLIANCE was that they set up open houses where a separate realtor (not representing the seller) showed the open house and assisted the buyer. This was to assure the realtor was looking out for more your needs versus both buyer and seller needs. The sellers realtor was also a member of ALLIANCE so able to work directly with Ricardo in the same office but was working directly with the seller.
The whole experience was fantastic. To this day if I have any further questions after the purchase, I know I can reach out to Ricardo for his knowledge and experience.
I will be recommending his services to any friend or family member. Thank you Ricardo!
Our family was so lucky to have you guiding us through the whole process.

My husband and I just bought out first home in the Mill Pond community and Ricardo was amazing to work with throughout the entire process. He went above and beyond our expectations. He was always available to answer our many questions and guided us through the whole process as smoothly as possible. We would definitely work with Ricardo in the future.

From start to finish, Ricardo Arriagada was simply amazing. When my partner and I stopped by the home for a look, he answered all our questions and made us feel genuinely cared for. He was up front and clear about the process, as well as funding options. Ricardo helped us with the emotional stresses that come with home buying. His calm and supportive demeanor truly made things so much easier. It is obvious he cares about how he treats customers, he put us first and went out of his way to take care of things for us that truly were not his responsibility. If I ever buy again, I am calling him.
We sought the lowest rate but had a less-than-stellar experience with a small community bank. When we needed a broker, Ricardo introduced us to Laura Chatoff at Alliance. Laura was so on top of things, she is an expert cat herder. She got a loan secured at a fantastic rate in no time. It was so easy working with her, just a smooth process from start to funding. We also got a great rate – and ahead of rate hikes spurred by the Federal Reserve in response to inflation. Laura wasted no time getting the loan secured.
We both felt that Ricardo and Laura took such great care of us. We could not recommend anyone more highly. We are so grateful for all the support and hand-holding we required along the way!

Ricardo helped with the purchase of our Manufactured home in Casa de Amigos, and though the process (especially the loan part) was treacherous, he helped every step of the way and proved to be a knowledgeable and trustworthy asset.

Ricardo Arriagado by far was one of the best agents for mobile home purchases. Extremely understanding and patient with clients and knowledgeable with his field. Him be able to speak Spanish helped communicate with my family more effectively and explain the entire procedure reliably and accurately. Highly recommend calling him for Spanish speakers and would do business again with this agent.

As a first time home owner, my parents and I were feeling nervous and excited but Ricardo was amazing and answered all of our questions. He was very easy to get a hold of and was always patient with any concerns we had. He would also go above and beyond to help my family and I secure this home for us. We could not have done it without someone like Ricardo who knew exactly what he was doing. I definitely recommend everyone who is looking to buy a new home to reach out to Ricardo Arriagada and get his help. You won’t regret it, I promise.

Ricardo and the Team at Alliance did a great job for me and my wife. When we first interviewed Ricardo as a possible agent to represent us in our manufactured homes sale, he was very responsive to the fact that we were in a hurry to sell our home in order to qualify for a new home loan for a home out of the Sunnyvale area. We asked him for a price recommendation that would sell the house quickly but still be competitive. Within 28 days we had 4 competing cash only offers and moved quickly into sale. Ricardo walked us through the process and was there for any questions about process or requirements. Very satisfied. My wife is in cancer recovery and he took extra precautions to ensure her well being during every visit and bent over backward making sure all COVID protocols were adhered to.

Ricardo Arriagada is AMAZING!! We were so fortunate to have found him. We couldn’t be happier with how we were treated and worked with. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. Ricardo walked us through every step. He always answered our questions never got annoyed even when we asked the same thing over and over again. We highly recommend him to anyone. We were so fortunate to have found Ricardo we couldn’t be happier with how we were treated and worked with. Ricardo was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. Ricardo walked us through every step. Amazing human-being! Excellent agent who speaks Spanish which is a plus for those who don’t speak English.

I honestly could not be happier with the results from using Riccardo Arriagada of Alliance Manufactured Homes for the sale of my home.
SAFETY: Riccardo set up my sale so that any realtor wanting to show my home had to contact him and then Riccardo would call me to see if the timing worked for me and then I would go for a walk while the home was being shown. It was perfect No one ever showed up unannounced. Riccardo wore a mask every time we met. Riccardo set up all the paperwork at my convenience at my home.
DEDICATION: The buyers had an issue which was not their fault but Riccardo personally handled the issue even though they weren’t his clients. This is a man you can trust and who will go the extra mile to see that your needs are handled in a professional way.
If I were staying in the Bay Area, I would be using Riccardo for my next purchase. I highly recommend giving him a call and see for yourself. You’ll be happy.

Ricardo helped me buy and move into my home this January and is now helping my parents do the same. He is professional, knowledgeable and responsive. I grew up in a realtors family (grandpa, uncle and dad) so I know a good realtor when I see one. Ricardo is great! My dad, who is still a realtor has nothing but good things to say about Ricardo and Alliance as well, and he is demanding and has high standards! Best thing I ever did was walk into Ricardo’s open house last fall. Thanks again!
