“We were retiring and wanted to find the perfect home. Rick asked us many important questions to help focus on exactly what we wanted. We were not the easiest folks to work with but Rick was very patient. He monitored new listings constantly watching for a home that matched our criteria. Within a few minutes of our new home hitting the market Rick was on the balcony calling us to come up and see it immediately. He felt it would sell very quickly. He was right. After consulting together we immediately wrote an offer. There were multiple offers on the home. Thanks to his excellent negotiating skills, Rick got us our dream home!”

“My husband was being promoted. We were moving from Florida and had no idea of what the area was like. Rick was very helpful answering my endless questions about schools, churches, shopping and recreational opportunities. He was very patient and helped us sort through all the different areas before choosing the neighborhood that we liked the best. We loved his consultative style and enthusiasm.”

“As first time home buyers, we were very nervous and clueless about how to proceed to buy our first home. Rick had us sit down with him and walked us through the process. He introduced us to a lender who was also very patient and very nice. She made us feel at ease. We never felt rushed or that we were being pushed into a decision. We qualified for more home than we bought. Rick explained sometimes buying a home for less than our maximum loan amount is a good decision. After we bought the home his advice paid off. We had an unexpected drop in income, but could still afford to keep our home.”
