Bought a home in 2013.

My girlfriend and I are first time home buyer and Rick made it really easy for us. He is very patient in answering all our questions and walks us through the purchasing process, being very specific on what to (and not to) expect. We found our home in less than two weeks and the closing process was very smooth as well. Rick even took care of having the seller/seller's agent dong some final fixing an cleanups. We have a great experience working with Rick, I'll recommend him to everyone looking of a real good realtor!  More Less

Sold a home in 2013.

I have worked with Rick for over 9 months, and he helped me purchase a new condo in San Francisco! For any new home-buyer like me, Rick is the perfect agent because he takes care of all your needs.

(1) Early on, he stays on top of all the new listings and gets behind-the-scenes information from his network -- like current offers & competition, important details about the home you need to know, and market prices.

(2) For places that were important to me, he accompanied me to the open houses and asked key questions to the seller's agent or seller so that we had all the information to make an offer.

(3) I was able to place several offers with his help, and he helped process disclosure packages and put together offer letters. All I practically had to do was sign.

(4) He also set me up with several lenders who provided competitive loan packages and interest rates. You can tell that he had my best interest at heart, while making sure things are a win-win for everyone involved. It has to be for a deal to go through.

(5) With the place I bought in the Marlow, Rick was so prompt and got me in the first week sales were happening. He would try to get me extras that could be thrown into the offer and I appreciated the extra effort.

(6) Even after the home purchase, Rick was involved in making sure that I was getting interior options and down payments straightened away. He would provide his input on what would have better resale value and provided other options on how I could take care of flooring, window treatments and other home setup choices.

(7) He would also continue to keep tabs on new deals happening at the Marlow like locking down interest rates. Proactively, he reached out to secure these benefits and also asked our other lenders if they could provide it as well.

I learned that Rick is a real estate agent because he's passionate about it. I do believe his full-time role as an accountant for a high tech start-up helps him deal with all the fine-grained details of home ownership and the financials flawless.

He's trust-worthy, thoughtful and puts your best interest at heart. I have already recommended him to several friends who are also looking for home in San Francisco. If you are struggling to find an agent to work with, you will be in good hands with Rick as he over-delivers.

Sold a home in 2013.

It really doesn't get any better than Rick and his team. They took care of absolutely everything from start to finish, including hiring a professional photographer whose work really highlighted the best features of my property in a way that made me fall in love with my place all over again. Weird, right? They even hired a professional cleaning service after I moved out which made leaving my first "real home" behind a lot less sad/hard. My building was also in litigation against the developer, so it was really difficult to find the "perfect" buyer who could negotiate the situation with lenders, etc. Rick and his team worked really hard and never gave up when others certainly would have told me it couldn't be done or it wasn't the right time to sell. I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding job you did!  More Less
