Ratings & Reviews

Rick worked with my husband and me over a couple of years. Due to job changes and health issues, our purchase was delayed, but Rick was patient. When the time was right, he listened to our needs and helped us find the right home for our current stage of life. He is very knowledgable of the local real estate market and provided us factual, honest feedback to our questions and concerns as we viewed various homes and properties. I would highly recommend him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $600K in Five Points, Raleigh, NC.

I worked with Rick on purchase of a new home in 2011 as well as rental of my existing home. Rick was excellent to work with; he was very patient, did not pressure us, was very professional and genuinely cared that we found the right house.

One home that we bid on (but did not end up purchasing) was a short sale which was a new process to me. Rick spent a lot of time ensuring that I understood the process and he kept me informed throughout both the seller and bank review. Rick's expertise in understanding this process turned out to save us from making a poor decision.

In negotiating the home that we purchased Rick's patience and experience were critical in helping us get the house within our budgeted price range. I never felt pressured by Rick and always felt that he was working in our best interest, not in the interest of making a sale.

I would strongly recommend Rick to anyone who is serious about finding the perfect home and is looking for an experienced, personable, patient and extremely helpful agent. I would (and will) use Rick for all future real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $625K in Wade, Raleigh, NC.

Rick listed and managed the sale of our home last year. Being novice home sellers, my husband and I were apprehensive. It had been so long since we had sold a house and the whole concept of staging a home and preparing for the market was overwhelming.Rick came highly recommended and we felt at ease with him as soon as we met. Putting a house on the market involves many emotions and Rick made us aware that selling a house is very different from selling a home. With that in mind, pricing our house and preparing for the sale was easier, even in a slow market. We appreciated Rick's easy going manner, professionalism, ability to explain details clearly, as well as excellent negotiating skills. Even at the closing, there were no surprises. And, Rick always gave us his full attention, always available to help!

Sold a Single Family home in 2004 in Raleigh, NC.

While Rick excells in all categories (for example, knowledge of local market, pricing and staging), his intelligence coupled with calm, pleasant and rational demeanor is what helped me successfully negotiate the sell of 2 homes and purchase of 3 homes in the North Raleigh area. The last sell and purchase was during 2010 and the market was extremely unstable, not to mention the mortgage process was beyond strange---rules regarding loan documentation seemed to change by the hour. Rick remained objective and calm throughout as we knocked down one hurdle after the other, negoitiating with lendors, closing attorney's, and of course the buyers of my existing home and the seller (JP Morgan Chase) of my new home.

I have and will continue to recommend Rick.

Sold a home in 2012 in Northwest Raleigh, Raleigh, NC 27607.

Both our buyers of our old home and the seller of the new one ended up throwing us a lot of "curve balls" which really elevated our anxiety level. But, no matter how stressed out, difficult, or upset we got, Rick remained a steady, reassuring, and even comforting "rock". He helped us to tackle (or in most cases tackled for us) every challenge the other parties threw our way. It was so great talking to Rick daily, that once the whole process was completed, I still feel like calling him!
