Rick was wonderful. I had worked with other agents, and their approach was a bit laissez faire. As a first time home buyer, I really needed someone who could actually show me a house and not just open the door. On a whim, my fiance contacted Rick to show us a house. It turned out to be a foreclosure in pretty deplorable condition. However, Rick already had another listing lined up to show us that day.
We went to that house and instantly fell in love with it. The process of purchasing the home was anything but smooth. The appraisal was significantly lower than the contract price. My first lender decided to not cover the loan 2-3 days prior to closing. My second lender was a trip down Nonprofessionalism Avenue. However, Rick kept us in the game to close on the house. We finally closed 2 months after the original closing date.
Rick was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the process, and he actually showed us the house -- showed us all the amenities, property, and did a sort of pseudo-inspection walk through. As a first time buyer, his hands on approach was greatly appreciated and needed. I highly recommend Rick -- especially if you're a first time buyer!More Less
