Since 1986 I have had the pleasure to work with many satisfied sellers and buyers of homes in the greater Sacramento area. Having been raised in the area, it has been exciting to see Sacramento’s growth into new neighborhoods and maturing of its older neighborhoods, which remain very much in demand.

The majority of my business comes from repeat clients or referrals from past clients. I continually strive to give both buyers and sellers exceptional customer service to earn their confidence and referrals. Having worked through the area’s real estate upward trends and downturns over the past 30 years, I know how to help my clients be successful, whatever the prevailing market conditions might be.

Making my clients knowledgeable about their real estate transactions through frequent communication is the key to successful transactions. I also make recommendations to prepare homes for marketing and provide professional negotiations and advice throughout the transaction so that glitches don’t become deal breakers.

 

Whether you’re relocating to the Sacramento area or moving within the area, I’d be happy to help you make the move!  See the testimonials from past clients on this tab or feel free to ask me for references.

Because of our previous experiences working with Ralph, it was already predetermined that he would be our broker. We felt confident in his knowledge and ability.and his help in working with us in the best manner. We appreciate all his efforts. Ralph was outstanding in every way. Ralph showed the highest level of service. He is the best!


—Carole Warner, Citrus Heights
  /  

Ralph was very helpful in getting our home ready for market. He always kept us informed of anything happening and letting us know what we needed to do.


—Harold and Nona. Miller. Wilton, CA
  /  

My wife and I would highly recommend Ralph Meredith as a knowledgeable, professional and seller focused real estate agent. We are very satisfied with his input and management of our recent sales process.


—Brian McBride, Sacramento, CA
  /  

Ralph has a long history with our family, having successfully marketed several properties over the years for our parents. After interviewing another brokerage's agent, Ralph demonstrated a superior local knowledge, marketing approach, and understanding of our needs and requirements. As my brother and I both live outside the Sacramento area, it was essential to have an agent who would not only successfully market the property without much face-to-face contact, but who had the capability to handle details which would have been unpleasantly burdensome, due to our remoteness. Throughout the preparation and sales processes, Ralph made arrangements for service providers (e.g., housekeeping, window washing, floor refinishing) to make the entire transaction as easy and seamless as we could imagine. He made certain to understand our negotiating parameters and was an excellent advocate in negotiating with the buyers' agent. Ralph gets our highest recommendation for anyone desiring an optimal sales experience. Ralph earned every penny of his commission. I can't imagine anyone more capable, and would engage his services if I had more property to sell in the future.


—Paul S., Santa Rosa
  /  

We didn't consider going with anyone other than Ralph Merideth because of the excellent service we have received in the past. Ralph Merideth did a spectacular, fantastic, wonderful job. He takes care of all the details in a kind and considerate manner. Many, many thanks to him for seeing us through this experience and will use him again.


—Carole Warner, Citrus Heights
  /  

Ralph's local knowledge and years of experience made the whole process run smoothly. We knew we were in excellent hands and he would take care of us. He always made sure we understood the steps and communicated clearly and timely. Ralph was an excellent broker and ensured we got the best value for our budget and that we got a great sales price on the home we sold. He is a member of the family now and we will recommended him to everyone!


—Katie Arba, CARMICHAEL
  /  

Ralph came very highly recommended from a friend. After my experience with Ralph in selecting my home, I can say he has two extremely satisfied clients that will be referring him from now on. Ralph was meticulous about my contract. It was such a relief knowing that my agent was competent, knowledgeable and timely. I felt that Ralph went to bat for me at every opportunity to secure a price that was fair and better then I could of received from another agent. Ralph did a fantastic job of guiding a first-time home buyer. I can say I am completely satisfied with my experience and that largely has to do with Ralph. I hope to work with him in the future and will be recommending Ralph and Lyon to all my friends and family that require such services.


—Nick Manzanares
  /  

Ralph was very sensitive to the difficult situation that was part of this home sale. He was always available for questions, with prompt, courteous answers.


—Kristin, Citrus Heights
  /  

Ralph was extremely helpful, professional, and knowledgeable during the entire process of buying my first home. He made himself available to me day and night and was very quick to respond to all of my questions and requests. I was also very impressed with his ability to negotiate with the seller. I knew that every move he made was in my best interest and we ended up getting the house for less than the asking price. Ralph made the process of buying a home fun and painless. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for excellent service and a trustworthy agent.


—Matt, West Sacramento
  /  

Ralph was the obvious choice for us - he has lived in our neighborhood for 30 years and sold several houses in our neighborhood. We were confident that his experience would pay off as we had to sell our home and buy a new one. We couldn't have been happier! Ralph guided us through every step of the purchase process. He answered questions, calmed our nerves, and used his repertoire of professionals to make sure the home we were purchasing was up to our standards. During the negotiation he also clarified the risk-reward pay off to every scenario we were considering. We wouldn't be happily in our new home without his guidance! Ralph is highly professional - kind and understanding with us as clients and hard-nosed with everyone else to make sure that he was fighting for our interests. He is a role model for all realtors and we will be recommending him to friends as they consider moving.


—Ryan, Carmichael
  /  

My parents faced the reality of selling their house with a level of sadness and apprehension as would anyone that had spent the last 38 years of their lives calling it “home”. Yet, they both knew it was time to sell. Ralph Meredith was selected as their real estate agent and he brought his perceptive, gentle professionalism in preparing both my parents and their house for the next steps in achieving their goal. Ralph politely answered their questions and mine, often more than once, as well as brought a level of transparency to the selling process that not only gently guided them towards the endgame of a timely sale, but kept them informed at every step of the way, which was very important to all of us. It was a great pleasure in working with Ralph and I would gladly refer and recommend Ralph Meredith and Lyons Real Estate to anyone with need of real estate services.


—Ed Kane, Sacramento
  /  

He's a consummate professional


—tom stewart, sacramento
  /  

The property was included in a trust that was set up to provide for long term health care for my elderly father. Since I live in the Bay Area, I was looking for Ralph Merideth to provide me with insight in the local market conditions and establish a fair price for the property. He delivered on both accounts! While preparing the property for sale, I needed support from several contractors (floor refinishing, HVAC upgrade, pool service). Ralph was able to refer me to contractors who provided excellent service at a reasonable price. He was an effective communicator who kept me appraised of the progress throughout the entire transaction. It was a pleasure to work with Ralph Merideth on the sale of this property. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable, helpful, professional real estate agent in the Sacramento market.


—Cris Jespersen, Martinez, CA
  /  

Ralph has proven to be simply the best, as first time buyers we had little knowledge of the process and he made sure to educate us on the ins and outs every step of the way. I wanted to give up a few times but Ralph made sure to ensure us that we would find the house that was right for us. Ralph made buying a home an enjoyable experience and I will recommend him to friends and family.


—Chris and Alaina Griffin, Sacramento, CA
  /  

I have complete confidence in Ralph Merideth and have used his expertise in the real estate business many times. I appreciate his excellence in getting the job done and the manner in which it is done. He takes care of the details and makes the process smooth. I would recommend him highly. He is the best!


—Carole Warner, Citrus Heights
  /  

Mine was a very complicated sale of an inherited property and Ralph went above and beyond all the difficulties we encountered.


—Carla Bzik
  /  

I knew Ralph was the right guy from all the other times I have dealt with him. I knew is knowledge would be what I needed. Ralph had everything either set up or done within the first week after the offer was accepted. He was in communication with us the entire time. Ralph is one slick dude. everything about how he works is outstanding and I could not have asked for anything more from him. Hard to put into workds how much Ralph has helped us through a very stressful time. He made the process very easy and kept me calm when I got upset. I can't say it enough on how much having Ralph on my team has meant to us. He has been nothing but the best and has gone over the top to make sure things have gotten done. I spoke with him every day regarding updates and things going on. Outstanding person!


—Brian Crum, Orangevale CA
  /  

I knew Ralph had what it took to help us a along the way. He knows the area, knows his job and rules VERY well and would recommend him to anyone and everyone I know and even don't know. Having all this knowledge above was important to me, but know how Ralph works I knew my selection of him would be a very good choice. Ralph Killed it on every single aspect of this process. He was in contact daily and letting me know what was going on, what I needed to do and making things happen in my favor as far as negotiations. Super Star to say the least! Like I said in the last comment, Ralph Killed it!! I can not say that enough. Having dealt with Ralph for the purchase of this house 7 years ago and also having a family connection he was very professional when it came down to brass tacks and yet overly friendly and concerned for the outcome. I can't state it enough, Ralph worked hard for us during this process, he was on top of deadlines and communication was outstanding. I never plan to move again, but if I do Ralph will be the guy I call!


—Brian Crum, Sacramento, CA
  /  

Ralph Meredith, of Lyon Real Estate Fair Oaks, did an excellent job as our agent. He listened to us and selected home to view that really helped us understand where we stood in the market. By the time we were ready to make offers, I felt confident that we had the knowledge necessary to proceed with confidence. He minded the big things and the details with patience and perseverance. I would highly recommend him!


—Mark Campbell, Sacramento
  /  

Ralph Merideth has a wealth of knowledge in Real Estate Sales. He will work hard and be diligent in negotiating the highest possible value for your property. Ralph will give you the feeling that you are the most important client he represents, because he really does feel you are his most valued client. Respectful, courteous, knowledgeable, prompt! You will be extremely satisfied entrusting Ralph Merideth with the sale of your property!


—Jerry Ahrens Sacramento, Ca
  /  

This property purchase/sale was the fifth Ralph Merideth has handled for us. Ralph's integrity, attention to detail and knowledge of the process are perfect for our needs. We would use no one else. Ralph Merideth handled each and every matter personally. We were never handed off to a team member or assistant. Ralph Meredith is our advocate and he kept us focused and on task from day one through hand off of the keys. Never did we feel anything else in Ralph's professional or personal life had a higher priority.


—Ben Price, Orangevale, CA
  /  

Ralph Merideth is a very professional realtor. He moved at my speed, listening to my needs and wants. He was informative and encouraging when things were challenging. He was good at informing and updating me regularly. Ralph made it so I didn't worry about the sale. He did a great job.


—D. Henriques, Roseville
  /  

Ralph was very patient (not pushy). This was important to me as I looked at several houses before choosing to purchase my home on Northwood Road. He had an understanding of the features in the home that are important to me and led me to a home that I love! Ralph was both the seller's agent and the buyer's agent on this home which can be tricky. He was fair to both parties and I appreciated his integrity in working with me/representing my interests. Ralph was very professional and I would work with him again if I have real estate needs.


—Cathy, Sacramento, CA
  /  

I would recomment Ralph Merideth to any of my friends or family and know that they would be pleased with his work and the manner in which he represents himself and the company he works for. I have worked with Ralph before and been extremely happy with the results. This experience was excellent as well.


—Carole Warner, Citrus Heights

All business- sound advice and practical consel. If that's important to you, seek out Ralph's help.

Ralph Meredith recently helped me sell my Carmichael home. During this transaction my boyfriend and I were actually selling two homes and buying one. It was a crazy time, trying to get two houses on the market and packing/preparing for our move. Ralph was very helpful in the whole sale process; from giving us ideas and references for work to be done before the "for sale" sign went up, providing encouragement to keep up the progress on getting the houses ready, to finally pricing the houses right for a quick offer and sale. Ralph's assistance in the negotiating process was excellent. With his knowledge and communication with the other broker I have no doubt we got the best deal on both the houses we sold and the one we bought. Ralph was at all times understanding and reassuring. He was always professional; to the point of being in a tie on a 100 degree day! I felt totally comfortable in trusting Ralph; appreciated his patience, knowledge and helpfulness. He always responded right away to an email, text or phone call and I always knew if I had any question or concern he would be right there with an answer. Ralph provides customer service that is just not found very often these days. Most of the time I felt like I was his only client. Top notch service! Thanks again Ralph for everything!


—Jennifer Martin - Carmichael

My girlfriend used Ralph when she bought her last home and was very satisfied. We did not even consider anyone else this time; we went straight to Ralph. For this sale his Market research, plan and pricing was spot on. The house sold the day it was listed for over asking price. Ralph's negotiating skills were fantastic and the buyer paid most of the closing costs. Ralph understands all aspects of real estate transactions and can explain it all so lay people can understand. He stays in touch with all the parties and communicates everything in real time. We sold two houses and bought one. Ralph handled all the transactions and did a great job all around. If we every sell or buy again we will go straight back to Ralph.


—Michael Donlon, Sacramento
  /  

Ralph Meredith was great to work with. He gave us suggestions, pitched in to help get things done and communicated very well with us throughout the entire process. He was very professional and other people that we know who have worked with him, gave him high praise as well. We would definitely go with Ralph again in the future.


—Cory Horch, Roseville
  /  

Ralph did an outstanding job informing and explaining the whole sales process, step by step, to minimize any sudden surprises. He was extremely calm, professional, knowledgeable and prompt with all of his communications with us. Ralph started by advising us as to the successful preparation of the house prior to listing. He continually worked with us during the prep time to insure a marketable listing. Ralph limited the amount of stress during negotiations and informed us of all our options resulting in a positive and successful sale. We will highly recommend his services to anyone. Signage and sales flyers outstanding.


—Jeff and Sharon Helms- 3216 Eastwood Road-Sacramento, Ca., 95821

Ralph was incredibly patient, understanding and helpful with all of the speedbumps that came along with this property as well as me. I couldn't have gotten through all of this without him.


—Allyson Brown Medford, OR
  /  

Ralph Merideth helped me purchase my home in 2007. He was great then, so I had to go back to him when my boyfriend and I wanted to buy a house together this year, in 2016. We had a pretty unique wish list for our new home. Ralph really listened to us and helped us find what would work for us. Ralph's knowledge of the local area, pricing in the area, and type of inventory available really helped us to find the perfect new home and make the right offers/counter-offers. Buying a home is a very stressful time, or can be. Ralph made everything easy. He always responded quickly to phone calls, emails or texts. It seemed he was always one step ahead making sure we were prepared and knew what was next. He didn't let anything slip through the cracks even when we forgot something, he picked up the slack. Ralph made the overall experience of buying a home a smooth and easy experience. I have and will continue to recommend Ralph Merideth to friends and family looking for a great real estate agent. Thank you so much Ralph!!

Ralph has been a consummate professional and valued resource in the purchase and sale of our Carmichael home. I can't imagine navigating the real estate market without Ralph's guidance and thorough knowledge. Placing trust in him was one of the best decisions made in the home buying and selling process.


—Justin Dyke, formerly Carmichael, CA
  /  

This is the third time I've used Ralph as my realtor. I can't say enough great things about him. He's extremely professional and knows the business very well. I totally trust him. He is always looking out for the party he represents. This is why I went back to him. In this competitive market, Ralph helped me present a solid offer. I never had to worry about the status of all the back and forth interactions, paperwork and negotiations. Ralph always had it handled and always kept me up-to-date. He even found some charges that were erroneously applied at my closing. With Ralph handling all the details and requirements, I could focus on packing and getting ready for my move. He allowed me to have peace of mind during what could be a very stressful time of purchasing a new home. He consistently goes above and beyond. I never thought the words "realtor" and "love" would be in the same sentence, but I love the service I received from Ralph. He's just awesome! I've already recommended him to others and would go back to him if I found I was in the housing market again. You won't go wrong with Ralph Merideth!!


—Jane F., Sacramento

Ralph Merideth is an excellent real estate broker. We had the opinions of our friends who we had sent to him. All of them agreed that he had done an excellent job for them and they thanked us for recommending him. Our experience was no different. He worked with us from beginning to end in a timely and kind and professional manner. He paid special attention to details and always kept us informed of the progress of the sale. He did a superior job. --


—Carole Warner, Citrus Heights
  /  

Ralph has handled over a dozen transactions for me and has always been able to close each deal at a fair price regardless of the curves that were thrown at him during each process. I was completely wowed that he was able to handle my Sacramento home and investment property purchases while I was living and working in Cairo. He is one of the highest integrity professionals I have ever had the pleasure of working with in any field. When I want to buy or sell, I don't even think of calling anyone else.


—R. Miguel Ramirez, Sacramento
  /  

Ralph did an amazing job in all aspects of my home sale. What I thought would be a rocky adventure turned out to be smooth sailing.... all due to Ralph


—Ann Weaver, Sacramento
  /  

Ralph Meredith went above and beyond. For example, he checked up on contractors in the home; he was really helpful with keeping everyone on track and accountable. I don't live close so this was very much appreciated. Ralph was very considerate during the entire process of selling our family home of over 60 years. It was an emotional time for my mother, and Ralph was very considerate of that. I can't imagine going through the process with anyone else. I highly recommend Ralph Meredith.


—K. Snyder, Rancho Murieta, CA
  /  

We needed a new garage door, electrical work, and some hauling. The people Ralph recommended did a good job for a reasonable price. The things the reverse mortgage people were telling me made it hard to sleep at night. Ralph did some research and found out they were lying to me. Finally a good nights sleep. Ralph Merideth is easy going, knowledgable, and professional. We could not have hired a better person for the job.


—Mark Simpkins Carbondale Co.

Ralph was the best agent I have ever dealt with. He stayed on top of the transaction from start to finish and kept us updated at every phase. The best...

Additional Testimonials

"Ralph's professional approach, wisdom and experience guided me through the paperwork, marketing and sale process. I felt very comfortable with his advice on what works best. He kept in touch with what was happening along the way right up to signing final papers. Ralph Merideth did an incredible job throughout the process of selling my home."


—W. White

"I just completed the sale of a home in Rocklin. I had the distinct pleasure of using the same realtor, Ralph Merideth, for purchasing the home ten years earlier. The recent sale was difficult in that I now live 1,000 miles away and couldn't be there to manage the significant repairs needed to put the home on the market. To put it simply, if it would not have been for Ralph, I would not have sold the home. Ralph went far above what I have ever heard any realtor do to help a client. He served as my agent in place to coordinate repairs and deal with engineers and contractors. "If anyone needs a definition of what a real estate professional is or should do, just look at Ralph and the job he does. His professionalism is incredible."


—K. Jenks

"Ralph recently handled the sale of my home. The transaction involved two properties with many details to keep track of. At no time was I left out of the loop as to the process of selling my home. All parties were kept informed and given the information necessary to accomplish the final result of closing this deal. "Take the worry out and contact Ralph. I strongly suggest this in order to close your transaction quickly and efficiently."


—M. O'Keefe

"Ralph is the most professional, kind and efficient realtor we found. We could not have been more pleased with working with Ralph to purchase our home."


—J. Dyke

"Ralph Merideth was my realtor working on selling my home as a short sale. Ralph always kept me in the loop and continued to plug away until the bank finally agreed to accept an offer. I am very pleased with the final results and glad Ralph was in my corner."
