Rick, Just wanted to let you know how much having an agent like you, who worked with us on our goals to achieve the sale of our home. The other agents we had were not over zealous in selling our home like you were. You came in and recommended some minor changes which definitely made the difference in making the sale of our home. We would highly recommend you as one of the best agents out there.
Richie & Jane… Listed & Sold
Rick, As you know, you came highly recommended to us, and for us, it was an understatement. From the beginning of our search for a home, to our current status of building, you have been very generous with your time, very patient, and always concerned about our needs. You are the most sincere, dedicated, and caring realtor we have ever known. As we are nearing completion of our home, we are thankful too for your suggestions, your insight, and feedback with our building process. We look forward to spreading the word about your excellent service to our new neighbors, and to continued friendship in the New Year.
