Clients are saying:

"My boyfriend and I have been looking for a home for some time now. The process was a bit overwhelming and there were multiple moments when we thought of giving up on our search. Lucky for us, that was the moment we hired Rick. He helped reinvigorate our drive and assured us we would find the home of our dreams, and that’s exactly what happened. We are now the PROUD owners of a beautiful home. Thank you Rick and your team for assisting us in this process. You are always welcomed in our home :)"

"Our experience with Rick was always professional. Rick has a great grasp of the market and was a strong negotiator when our offers came in. If you’re buying or selling I recommend Rick as your agent."

"Rick was very easy to work with and accommodated our every need. He was happy to make the 1 1/2 hour drive to show us houses in the areas we requested. The buying process was made extremely easy while making the entire experience painless. We just moved in to our new house over the weekend and as first time homeowners we couldn't be happier! We can't thank Rick enough for allowing us to work with someone so knowledgeable and wonderful as him! Thank you!"

"Rick was an absolute pleasure to work with. He helped relieve my stress and guided me every step of the way. He sold our condo for more than I thought it was worth! I’m so grateful to have used such an experienced and talented real estate broker. Thank you Rick!!!!"

"Rick was so easy to work with! Through the whole process he provided information, answered our questions and helped us with anything we needed. Being out of state made it a little bit more tricky but Rick made it seamless for us. Highly recommend using Rick!"
