Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Pleasant Hill, CA.
Ann Richards is a very knowledgeable realtor with the local know-how of the market dynamics, level-headed yet firm negotiation skills and responsiveness un-paralleled in the industry. Ann brainstormed and provided creative ideas to close on the property when I was on the East coast on a 4-day business trip by staying up with me past 11:00 pm Pacific, working through the transaction, various addendums and more . . . . Ann's integrity, professionalism, local knowledge, hard work and years of experience paid off in securing the purchase of the property in contra costa county which had over 24 offers. I would highly recommend Ann as a realtor and would work with her again on another transaction.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.7M in Alamo, CA.
Ann has helped us find our home which we finally purchased this year. We have been searching for 3 years which was hampered by lack of stock. But Ann was patient with us and the real estate climate. Ann is very well informed with the new processes and legal obligations with the process which has been a constantly changing throughout the time we were hunting.
Ann was fabulous in guiding us through the process and was great with negotiations and handling other professionals such as other agents, contractors etc. she has a great team of people who support her. She is also very knowledgeable of the area.
Most importantly, Ann was able to understand exactly what our needs were and what we wanted. Plus what we didn't even recognize as what we could consider as possibilities or not. Simple things like having a driveway on a slope is not good for kids getting in out of the car as well as adults as just an example.
We highly recommend Ann Richards to anyone looking for a real estate agent. We are very thankful to have her working with us and continue to do so in the future.
Helped me rent a Single Family home in San Mateo Park, San Mateo, CA.
Ann Richards helped my family find a home to rent when we moved here from Australia. Having dealt with several real estate agents before I found Ann's professionalism a welcome change. Her local knowledge and interpersonal skills were key to us finding a home which closely suited our needs at a time when there was a shortage of appropriate properties. I strongly recommend Ann to any individual who needs professional real estate assistance.
Showed home in 2012 in Alamo Oaks, Diablo, CA 94507.
Was looking for property in the 94507 zip area, specifically, around the Round Hill Golf and Country Club. Most properties we saw were in our price range and had the amenities we were looking for (gas stove, 3+ bedrooms, nice yard, hopefully a pool), but what we found in our price range was just too old for our liking.
Ann did a great job of trying to help us understand the compromise(s) you have to make for an older home, especially around this golf course/club, but in the end, we chose a newer house in a newer suburb.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $500K in Danville, CA.
Ann helped us buy our first home and made our experience a comfortable and positive one. She really listened to our requirements and showed us a series of homes that fit our criteria. Her experience and thoroughness allowed us to understand and evaluate every nook and cranny of each home we viewed so that we could make the most informed decision. She is extremely knowledgeable of the local area and of every element of the sales process - we never felt unprepared or scattered.
I highly recommend Ann as she made us feel valued as clients and she fought for (and won!) every minute detail of our purchase.
