Testimonials for Richard Daskam
Richard helped me list and sell my home in Lakewood, CA. He was very professional from the listing appointment to the close of escrow. He got me 15,000 more than expected. The transaction was so smooth from beginning to end. I could not be happier with the complete process. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a knowledgable and professional Realtor to buy or list their house. I have used him for several purchases and selling of my various homes. I would absolutely use him again for my next transaction.
I have known Richard for over 20 years as he is the go-to Realtor providing the best of services in the Westgate Gated Community in Lakewood and surrounding cities and neighborhoods. Since planning my retirement I always knew that Richard would be my #1 choice to sell my home. Richard has all the skills that make him a excellent Realtor but what really stands out is his amazing temperament especially in his ability to almost magically and calmly handle and resolve issues. This is what sets apart the good Realtors from the great ones. At the beginning you will know Richard as a Realtor with a strong vested interest in getting the job done. At the end… he will be one of your best friends! I highly recommend Richard for all your real estate needs.
Richard and Janine are great. I was under the gun to sell my home for an upcoming relocation. They marketed, went to escrow and closed on my home in six weeks in a buyer's market!
Richard has all of the attributes you want when you are choosing a realtor. He was responsive to my first request to schedule an appointment. He arrived when he promised with all of the information you need to understand the value of your home based on the comps and his expertise. His portfolio included all of my home's financials, the process and the steps necessary to have a successful sale. The house sold after just 11 days on the market and it closed this past week. Richard is the consummate professional and I would highly recommend him.
I have lived in a gated community since it was new. I remember seeing Richard work with my neighbors throughout the community for the last 23 years listing and selling their homes. He was always friendly and outgoing. He also sponsored a yearly garage sale to help us shed items that we no longer needed in our new homes. I had decided that when I was ready to sell my house, I would contact Richard first to meet with him on a professional basis. When I did, he was prompt, courteous, and fully prepared with all of the information I would need to move forward with the sale of my house - exceeding my expectations. He had a buyer within 11 days of listing my property, it closed several days ago, and he made the process go very smoothly. I would give him more than 5 stars??if I could. I highly recommend Richard.
I absolutely highly recommend Richard Daskam. I have listed two fourplexes with him. The first had an excellent offer within 24 hours with an early close of escrow. The second is currently in escrow. Richard is easy to communicate with, extremely helpful with all of the details, calm, always available and responds quickly every time I reach out to him. He communicates well with the tenants to accomplish the appraisals and inspections needed. He is excellent at negotiating and got me top dollar for the properties. I would definitely hire him again
Richard provided excellent service and helped me in EVERY way possible. I definitely recommend him. Thank you!
I have know Richard for years and have sold and bought homes through him. There is simply no one else you want to do business with when buying or selling. He gets the job done and through the entire process you never have to wonder what's happening.
Richard daskam did an awesome job in selling our house. He responded quickly to my need to sell my house. quickly paid me a visit. explained the nature of the market. advertised the house immediately. and was successful in finding a buyer. he kept me up to date on events and sent documents for signatures rapidly. and kept me up to date on changes and dealt with my spouse in a professional yet convincing manner. he did a great job.
Richard has done a superb job in quickly listing and selling a Four Plex in California City for a group of us. Richard has also leased two properties for me and I will give him the Stoneybrook listing when I decide to sell. He has done a remarkable work in Stoneybrook and my guess is he has listed, sold and leased more in that complex than any other agent.
