I highly recommend Rick Tannenbaum as a Real Estate Professional for both selling and purchasing your home. Rick has a low-key style and a very pleasant demeanor. His insights were very good while we searched for the right house. We were not sure if we were to buy or rent for the time being, and we felt no pressure from him to buy sooner rather than later. He was a great advocate for us in negotiating and very professional the whole way through.

Rick sold our home with professionalism in a challenging situation. He was thorough and his great negotiating skills made this a successful transfer. Rick handled all the details with the bank and everyone else involved. Thank you Rick for all your hard work!

Rick was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the short sale on our house. His communications were clear & concise. Our mortgage company fought us on the short sale option but Rick never backed down and after many, many back & forths , we closed with a happy buyer, seller & mortgage company. I would highly recommend Rick & his team.

I would not recommend this agent. Let me start by saying he was a referral so I guess I was anticipating something better. When we moved to Cleveland he was helpful in the house hunt but that where it ended. As for our sale I can't say anything positive. First, all he wanted to do was lower the list price with no reason to do so. He got me to agree to a agents open house to see if my price was right. He had me leave my home with my newborn son and 2 large dogs for several hours only to not have anyone show up because his "assistant" made a mistake. Then he wanted an open house but he didn't show up to that either. All the time asking me to lower the price repeatedly. I lowered the price a bit but asked for an agents open house to really find out if the price was the problem. This time he was there but not a single agent showed up. He claimed it was because of construction. Really? He never showed the home to a single person. Then it gets even worse. During negotiations on the sale price he agreed to take a fee reduction and to give the buyers a home warranty that he would cover. He calls me a little while later and says I only gave you half the amount I agreed to because the other agent didn't agree or didn't know. I'm thinking not my problem but I say ok because I just wanted to be done with him. Well I get my HUD statement and there it is I'm paying for the warranty he "gave" me so I asked him about it and he said that he didn't remember saying that. He then proceeded to send me the contract for the warranty that he said he was paying for. That was my last communication with him.

Rick is an excellent realtor to work with when buying a house. We moved from Sydney to Solon and he was recommended to us by one of our freinds. I didnt look any further after talking to him - he had excellent local knowledge, expertise in the process of buying (given how much nervous was I having moved from outside). He was very responsive - was available when needed and helped thru the negotiations with the seller smoothly. Rick patiently and calmly dealt with my nervoiusness and hundreds of questions through out the proicess. I am sure I gave him a hard time during the process, wanting to walk out when the deal had some stressfull moments - but Rick was patient and calm thru out and counselled me rightly. I would recommend him to any one who wants to buy or sell.

Rick exceeded my expectations from day one. He was eager, knowledgeable, considerate, and completely professional during the whole process. He made what could have been a very stressful time into a collaboration that worked well for us. I have already recommended him to people I know. I don't foresee a move in my near future, but I wouldn't hesitate to call Rick to make another deal.

Rick was great! He was more than flexible and willing to work around my schedule. If I needed anything or had any questions, he was always available throughout the entire process of me purchasing my home.

Rick was a pleasure to work with when we recently purchased our home in Beachwood. He was very flexible accommodating showings at multiple times during the week, and stayed on top of our deal once we put an offer in on a house. We had a particularly difficult and frustrating overall transaction (through no fault of Rick's), but Rick was very patient and supportive of us throughout every rocky step. We wouldn't hesitate to work with Rick again!
Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Downtown, Cleveland, OH.
I had a very positive experience with Rick Tannenbaum. He was very responsive and provided up to date market research and good advice. In addition, I could rely on Ric to execute all agreed upon activities. This was crucial since I was rarely in the area during the work week.
