Bought a home in 2013.
Richard was excellent to work with. We were first-time homebuyers looking for a condo, and Richard made the process so clear and easy. He was incredibly responsive so we were able to see units right away, and he was also straigtforward, which helped us make informed decisions quickly. Not only that but he has a lot of experience, which was very appreciated. He was able to clearly articulate to us what our expectations should be, and this was incrediby helpful. Overall, we really enjoyed working with him, and would gladly do so again in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Calhoun, Minneapolis, MN.
Richard helped us buy a home in Spring 2013. The market at that time was particularly hot, demand far exceeded supply, and houses were going very fast. Richard was always available to show us houses as soon as something interesting appeared on the market. He was very knowledgeable, did a lot of additional research, an gave us a lot of useful tips and information. He was very responsive to our needs, but never pushed us to anything. Most importantly, he taught us a lot about the process of making and offer and buying, which in the end helped us get the beautiful house that we are living in now. I highly recommend Richard Newman.

Bought a home in 2011.
Richard is quite different from many real estate agents: he is extremely reliable, responds very quickly, straightforward and sincere, and does not push you into a decision — just offers his time and expertise for you to make your own decision.

Bought a home in 2012.
Richard went above and beyond to help us find and buy exactly the home we wanted. He was patient and clever, an expert at pursuing and negotiating the agreement.

He is simultaneously hard-working and determined yet also friendly and relaxed, which made the process a pleasant rather than a stressful one.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Bancroft, Minneapolis, MN.
I've dealt with a lot of real estate agents over the years and in my experience Richard is the best. His communication skills are excellent. His knowledge and use of current technology for searching for houses is fantastic. We bought our house in Minneapolis from 300 miles away and it could not have gone more smoothly. He listened to what we wanted and tried to get us that type of place and not something we weren't looking for. He did everything he said he was going to do and tried to do everything we asked of him almost immediately. I can say that I've also dealt with a lot of bad agents and know how that can make the process miserable. So if you want to have a good experience, and get the type of place you want, where you want it, Richard is the person you want to work with.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Regina, Minneapolis, MN.
We had a great experience with Richard. He was knowledgeable, punctual, and easy to work with. And just as important, he had that intangible ability to match us up with the perfect condo! He suggested we look at a particular condo we had previously crossed off our list before even viewing it....but, as soon as we walked in the door, we knew it was perfect in every way --- location, style, layout, building, and price. Can't ask for more than that!

Bought a home in 2013.
He uses a property-search system that gets updated fairly often with properties in your desired location and desired price ranges. When it gets updated, you get an email that lets you know that a property that fits cost and location has been added to your list. You follow a link to that list from your email and can check out photos, HOA fees, tax costs, amenities, pet policy, and a host of other details. It made it easy to weed out properties that might be in price range but outside of desired locations, or that might be in desired locations but outside of price range. He was very clear when we saw the first property that fit all of our criteria that at its price level it could very well be snapped up fairly quickly, and despite putting in our offer that same day, there was another offer on the table. He gave us sound advice on what we should offer for the property and we got the place! And while there could have been a long drawn out process, we closed in a month or two of seeing the place with our questions and concerns answered in a timely manner. We're really happy with our experience as first-time homeowners!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $525K in Plymouth, MN.
I am eager to endorse and recommend Richard Newman for your real estate needs. Richard worked with my wife and me 3 1/2 years ago to find our new home. We were new to the area and visited many homes. Richard was incredibly responsive, knew the market, and helped us negotiate our purchase--he saved us money.

Richard is calm, adaptable, almost instant in his responses, and on time. He was patient with us. We recommended him to our son and he was equally happy with Richard. We remain in touch with Richard for our next move.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Downtown, Saint Paul, MN.
Richard was very responsive to our calls and questions, always with our best interests in mind. When our first choice for a particular loft became difficult in the process (due to that property being a short sale), he immediately looked into other similar, suitable lofts in the area that did not have the complicated financing factors. And he followed up with us after we moved in to see how we liked it.

Bought a home in 2013.
Working with Richard was terrific. As we were buying a condo in Minneapolis but live three hours away our search was a bit complicated. Richard was always accessible, willing to show places on Saturdays and Sundays (almost exclusively), looked at places for us when we could not to advise on whether they seemed right fit for us, and helped talk us through the negotiation process (which could be tricky given many condos were short sales). We had two short sales fall through -- after several months for both -- but Richard was always patient and persevered with us throughout the process. He was not pushy and let our search happen at our pace. We really appreciate all the work Richard did to help us find the right place at the right price.
