Brandon Rampani

Founder | Lead Realtor®
DRE # 01912467

One of the biggest accomplishments so far in my life, is when I became a realtor in San Diego County. This was such a feat for me because I had just relocated to San Diego, did not know anyone and had to solely rely on my belief that with hard work and perseverance I would succeed. I quickly networked and became aligned with some of the best agents in the business who mentored me and allowed me to grow. After just a few years as a realtor, I stepped out on my own while building a brand that fully encompassed my unique vision, talents and services.

I currently reside in the Rancho Bernardo area of 4S Ranch. I am blessed with my wonderful wife, April by my side as well as our four beautiful children. We have three daughters, Kylee, Briella and Maylin and our only son, Kingston. Becoming a father for me was personally the most endearing moment and has truly shaped me into someone with a passion for helping and creating comfort and direction for others. Our family loves ALL things San Diego from the Beach to Downtown to the Trails of Torrey Pines. It doesn’t matter where we are in this amazing city, but our family will stop everything and enjoy the beauty of a sunset anytime!

Monica Halliday

Operations Manager | Realtor®
DRE # 01912467

Prior to getting her real estate license, Monica had been working in finance for over 10 years. A former loan processor, mortgage officer, and corporate trainer, she shifted her focus to Real Estate in early 2020. Before she was a part of the Vested Realtor Group team, Monica was a repeat client of Brandon’s! Monica and Brandon had built such a great working relationship during three separate transactions that they knew, together they would be unstoppable. Monica lives in La Mesa with her supportive husband and adorable daughter. They are avid football fans (that’s soccer to the rest of you!), enjoy spending time with friends & family in the San Diego sunshine, and trying interesting wines from all over the world.

April Rampani

Director of Marketing
DRE # 01912467

April first started her career in real estate years ago as an assistant to a realtor. During her time as a Real Estate Assistant she became familiar with contracts and disclosures, escrow processes, as well as working with clients in all areas of a transaction. April’s career path changed directions in 2006 when her family purchased a design center that specialized in working with custom home builders. April worked as an interior designer where she assisted homeowners in selecting finishes that would reflect their personality and style, thus creating their dream home.

April and Brandon married in 2013, their family grew very quickly, having three kids in three years. April stepped away from her career in 2016 to focus on caring for their four children. Now that the children are school-age, April is excited to join the Vested Realtor Group team. When Brandon and April aren’t working, the Rampani family loves staycations at the beach! This is where you’ll find them in their element, splashing in the water, building sandcastles, or making friends along the boardwalk. 

Monette Peralta

Preferred Broker
DRE # 01912467

Monette is a native San Diegan and became a licensed Realtor in 1989. Being very familiar with all areas of San Diego and the owner of two established businesses at the time, Monette thought that was a good chance to break into the business with a sphere of already established clients in her address book.

Realizing she preferred being behind the scenes, in 1995 Monette became one of the first Transaction Coordinators in San Diego. With exceptional organizational skills and a keen eye for file compliance, she has since worked with some of San Diego’s biggest names in real estate as a Transaction Coordinator, personal assistant, and office administrator.

Monette joined Brandon and the Vested Realtor Group in 2017 and has since closed 100’s of successful transactions with them!


Brandon Rampani is one of the hardest working real estate agents I know. He was able to accommodate my challenging schedule and we would see 20 homes on each outing. I was able to get into escrow within 2 weeks of starting my search with Brandon and I am now a proud first time homeowner! Thanks Brandon you are the best..I enjoyed the search process, thanks for always making me laugh and keeping me awake lol! I wish you utmost success!

We were introduced to Brandon through a referral from a friend. We were so happy to work with him. He laid out the entire process for us and explained what to expect in a seller's market. He provided us with access to MLS listings based on our basic property preferences and had us select all the homes we wanted to see. Then we were off! Brandon was patient and helpful in showing us details about houses to help distinguish the good from the bad. We never felt pressured to make one decision or another. When we found the house we liked, Brandon was expeditious in working with us to submit an offer right away. Brandon gave us tips in writing a competitive offer letter that showed we were serious buyers. The seller was in a difficult situation and while this made the negotiations and escrow process frustrating, Brandon stood by us 100%. Overall, Brandon provided excellent service and we definitely recommend working with him.

Brandon was such a pleasure to work with! I outlined my expectations/desires/goals in a property from the beginning and he was patient and kept me on task through 6 months of perusing. He helped me remember the bigger picture of my goal by pointing out estimated additional expenditures in the various properties we saw so I wouldn't be caught by surprise and would factor them in to the budget. Working with Brandon is a catered personal experience. You certainly don't feel like "just another client" with him. Should I purchase another property in San Diego in the future (and I may) it will definitely be with Brandon! ??

My husband and I were looking for a realtor that had expertise in the area of first time home buying, as well as using VA loans for our purchase. I found Brandon on Zillow, and after reading the outstanding reviews already written, I knew I found someone who would help us buy the perfect home. I would gladly work with him again. He is extremely knowledgeable in the real estate world and was quick to respond to any questions we had. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

Exceptional attention to detail. Courteous, trustworthy, ethical along with an encyclopedia of real estate knowledge generously shared with his clients...thus allowing for a complete understanding of San Diego Area Real Estate Market. Easy to talk to, easy to contact at all times, regardless of his schedule always putting aside personal time for his clients. I have experience with Brandon as a seller and buyer - always completely flawless work and customer focused service and quality. As a very experienced buyer and seller I can tell you this man is a great resource and truly earns respect from his customers. A complete pleasure.

Brandon is great! My home buying adventure took 9 months and he never stopped supporting me! I went through 4 home inspections and finally found the right home that wasn't going to require a ton of work. Brandon was always available. He's very patient and had a great sense of humor through the whole process. Towards the end of my closing there were some delays with the escrow company and Brandon stepped in and really showed that he is there to protect his clients. Great guy! Great agent! Glad that I had someone like Brandon to help me.

Brandon is a wizard! We came into the house hunt not knowing a thing and he stood out from other realtors by how well he communicated with us about the process. We appreciated his market forecasts, neighborhood growth potentials, and how critical he could be of issues in properties we visited. That assured us he was not just here for a sale but to truly find us a worthwhile home. Zach is a buyer’s agent through and through. He stayed calm when hesitations arose and supportive when we found a home that really stood out (but originally out of budget). Because of his encouragement and negotiations, that home went to us under listing with credits that helped our budget. He is a personable agent who will put you at ease through the ups and downs of buying.

You will be hard-pressed to find a realtor equal or better to Brandon! He was referred to us by my brother-in-law as he found them a beautiful home as well. We were first-time buyers so Brandon broke it down into a language we could understand. His background as a former loan officer and interior decorator provides incredible insight and knowledge of the whole process.

To say our escrow was difficult would be an understatement. It was because of Brandon's persistence, ingenuity, and sheer passion that we were able to close. Though the process was long and stressful, we had the upmost confidence he would find a way and get the job done. Now, we are in our first home because of him and could not be happier! Brandon is the best!

Jennard Bernales
Brandon was amazing to work with and a true professional when it comes to real estate. My wife and I were purchasing our first home and new very little about what we should be looking for and even less about the area we were moving to. Brandon took the time to listen to our needs and what we were looking for and put us on a path to finding the perfect home. He's super knowledgeable and within minutes of stepping into a home, he can point out all the benefits, flaws, and challenges you will face with that home as well as provide some really good suggestions on improvement and how to add value to the home. If you are buying a home, make sure to work with Brandon and his team - you'll be glad you did!

Demetrius Pozantides
We knew Brandon was the right agent for us right away. He was welcoming, professional, and listened incredibly well to understand our situation and what we were looking for. After 3 months of looking for the right house we were ready. Brandon managed some very tough negotiations, always firmly representing our interests. I can't say enough about how comfortable we were with him, and how hard he worked on our behalf. We can only hope that if we ever have to go through the stressful process of buying/selling a home again, Brandon will still be around to call!
