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.
