Bought a home in 2014 in Kings Island, Fox Lake, IL 60020.

After 6 months of searching for a home, we had been disappointed a couple of times with the kind of service we received from our realtors. It seem like our low budget (50K-75K) was deterring realtors from making an effort into helping us find a home, they suggested we wait until we had enough money to afford a more expensive property. They crash our dream of becoming homeowners, we almost gave up and that’s when we met Rich (our real state miracle!) It was such a blessing and joy working with Rich…I will like to point out, no budget is too small for him so please don’t hesitate to contact him. I agree with every single review made by previous clients of Rich. If you do your research, you will see that everyone that has hired Rich has only good things to say about him. “Rich felt more like a very knowledgeable friend than hired pro”. Rich’s truly knows the business from A to Z. He is knowlegable, honest and trustworthy. He will never hesitate to go above and beyond in your best interest. Simply put…RICH HARTY is the BEST in his field and there are no words to describe our gratitude for all he did for us! Therefore, if you’re in search of buying a home, do yourself a favor and contact RICH HARTY (847) 266-8242!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Waukegan, IL.

I hired Rich to help me navigate the murky waters of first-time home buying. Good thing I did! Rich's knowledge about all things real estate proved to be invaluable in getting me a quality home for an unbelievable price.

Not only did he know the local market inside and out, but his knowledge of how houses are put together and such was astounding! This is a professional who really does know the business from A to Z.

His many resources and connections to people in his profession meant that my choices were well informed and not blindly made. He virtually had answers for all of my questions, however inane. He also remained calm through the whle process, something I failed do.

Throughout the whole process Rich felt more like a very knowledgable friend than a hired pro. He speaks his mind when he feels someone may be about to make a mistake. His passion for getting the deal done in my benefit rivaled my own.

Simply put, on a scale of one to ten I rate Rich's overall performance as a ten and a half. The extra half being added because he went above and beyond many times, in my best interest.

Bottom line is I couldn't imagine using someone else to buy another house and if your smart and you want a pro to get you the best deal, then call Rich Harty. I did and I've never looked back! Thanks Rich!
