Ratings & Reviews

Richard Breen knows the central coast of California like no other broker we've come across over the past 15 years. He's extremely knowledgable, experienced, hard-working and considerate of his clients. He's also very pleasant and easy to deal with. Richard gave us great advice in acquiring a couple of homes we've purchased in the area, as well as buildable raw land. Whether a parcel is on or off the market, he knows about it, most likely has a pre-existing, friendly relationship with the owner and can help a buyer gain the inside track. He is honest and trustworthy, and really cares about his clients. My wife and I couldn't be more pleased with the attentive service Richard has provided us over the years. He knows this market like the back of his hand, knows good value when he sees it, and is a consummate professional. He knows the "ins and outs" of each property and will tell you what to watch out for when you're on the buyside and what you need to address when you're on the sellside. He's very protective of his clients and always watches out for their best interests. Richard's our "go-to guy" when it comes to buying or selling properties in SLO County and has earned our loyalty. We recommend him unequivocally and without hesitation.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $875K in Cambria, CA.

I originally listed my home in Cambria, CA with Richard Breen in 2010. Because of personal family issues, we had to remove our listing later that year, but relisted in 2011. In all this time, Richard and his agents were diligent is marketing our home, including a very professional photo spread, virtual tour and featured listings in local publications. This was the 8th home I've sold in my lifetime. Richard was, by far, the most personable, competent, attentive and knowledgeable agent I have ever used. His personal attention to detail included the location of professional contractors to assist in prepping the home for sale, fixing problems we encountered and contacting his personal list of potential buyers.

He found our buyers, meticulously walked us both through the process of closing the transaction and, in the process, became a lifelong friend I will never forget. I would not hesitate to recommend Richard to any friends, family or acquaintances who need professional real estate services
