Professional Experience

I have been a successful full time REALTOR since 1988 who specializes in knowledge of the southern Peninsula and western Santa Clara County areas. I have been working at Coldwell Banker Los Altos (formerly Cornish & Carey) since 1992.
Personal Information
I have been a resident of the area since 1976, having moved here from Michigan. I have been very involved in the figure skating community over the years as a local organizer of figure skating events. In 1996 I served on the Executive Board for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in San Jose. I served as Director of Operations for this massive event and was responsible for security, communications and transportation. I also served as a Committee Chairman at the 1992 World Figure Skating Championships in Oakland and the 1991 Skate America Competition also in Oakland.
Professional Philosophy

Referrals and repeat clients make up almost 90 percent of my business. That says a lot about the service I provide which is first class all the way. I am a great believer in personalized service and do everything I can, and often much more than expected, in helping my clients. I have gone so far as to FLY to my relocating clients location with closing paperwork so they would not have to miss work to fly in just to sign off on their home purchase. I will also help client's co-ordinate major repairs and remodeling prior to selling their home. I consider myself to be a trustworthy individual and have no problem trusting my clients in return. Supremely patient, I like to educate my clients and works with them on understanding their budget concerns before we start looking at property. I am not a high-pressure REALTOR. I like working with people so I don't mind spending extra time with them. I just want to make sure they make a good decision and one that's right for them. That is not a quick process and requires patience.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $800K in Mountain View, CA.
      We met Ric Parker four months ago when we moved to the Peninsula and started looking for a home in the Mountain View area. From the first day we looked at properties with Ric, we knew that we were dealing with the best.

      Ric's knowledge of real estate is vast and impressive. As a long time broker and resident of the area, he knows it like the back of his hand. His professionalism, honesty, patience and positive attitude make dealing with him and looking for a home a very positive experience. Never at any point in the time we worked with Ric did we feel pressured to make a decision, or to take the first thing that came on the market. It was very clear to us that his main concern was to find the property that would make us happy, no matter how long it took. He was always available to answer our calls and emails promptly and personally. We had immediate feedback on our questions and concerns. Ric was attentive to our needs and able to read our likes and dislikes very clearly. As a result, he found the perfect property for us in the exact area we wanted.

      We were impressed with the speed and diligence with which Ric acted on our behalf. When he first viewed the property that we subsequently purchased, at a Broker's Open, he contacted us on the spot and arranged for us to view it a few hours later before the Open House was held. He submitted an offer on our behalf within hours, enabling us to obtain the property before an Open House was held and other bids were submitted. Eliminating the possibility of a bidding war was an impressive accomplishment, given that the property is located in a neighborhood within walking distance to Downtown Mountain View where such properties usually sell with multiple offers.

      We highly recommend Ric not only for his professionalism and competence, but also for his friendly, positive attitude that makes working with him a pleasure. Searching for a home with him was as comfortable as being with a friend or family member. Four months later, we grow happier each day as we live in our new home and neighborhood. There is no doubt in our minds that we will work with Ric again if we need a real estate broker.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $925K in Willow Glen, San Jose, CA.
      It was a great experience to work with Ric. He understood our needs and showed us what our options were in the different neighborhoods that we were interested in. He also introduced us to areas that we didn't know and answered all the questions that we had in a very professional manner. He knows the area, the market and the business very well. He is very dedicated and always available. He is friendly and fun to be with.  MoreLess
