Here's what his most recent clients comments:
"When wanting to look at a place, I knew I needed an agent I could work with, but didn't know anyone in the area. I looked at the choices listed for the place I wanted to see and chose Rick because of his picture! Rick looked like a guy I could trust and who might be there when I needed information and even reassurance. His picture didn't lie. He responded to my initial inquiry quickly and we set up a method of communication and processing questions and concerns that has helped me tremendously in what can be a very stressful process. I am not buying a fancy, expensive place, but Rick never made me feel like I was a "lesser" or unimportant client. Honestly, I can't imagine having done this process without Rick. I want everyone to know that he has been the best agent I could have asked for. Thank heaven...AND thank you, Rick!" Kelsey Anne Hartman
"We gave Rick a tough assignment. A home that we thought would take some time to move. He knew the area away from here well, not just one or two towns in the Tri-Valley. He also was very knowledgeable of transactions that helped us "quick learn" what we could expect. He had creative ideas and the property sold in less than 10 days. His follow up, attention to detail and regular communication (all hours day/night) were just great. Also after the close, he stayed in contact with us and handled questions/issues directly from buyer that came up. He is extremely professional. What a difference "lots of years" makes vs an agent with less time in the field and only concentrating on an easy sell area." H. Richard Partida
"I have known Rick for a number of years. He successfully negotiated a 1031 Exchange for me in two different counties. I had no idea what it all involved and Rick made it a painless process - for me. He guided every step of the process and assisted with the loan processing, insurance, and the vast amounts of paperwork involved. Not only that, but after the sale was complete he stayed on the job and helped me get some major projects under way. His knowledge of every aspect of the real estate business and property management is unsurpassed. I would definitely use Rick's expertise again and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for residential or investment properties. He is willing to travel to any part of the state or country to find what you're looking for and then successfully negotiate the transaction. He will accommodate your style - whether you want to be super involved in the nitty gritty, or you just want to hand it over to Rick and say, "take care of this". He is honest, trustworthy, responsible, and a very hard worker for his clients." Maureen Uribe
