Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $50K in Remus, MI.

I was having trouble finding a home within my price range. Within a week of working with Rick he found the PERFECT home for my family. He was quick with paperwork, willing to work on short notice and was an expert at negotiating. He did in two weeks what I had been trying to do for months. If you are looking for someone who will work for YOU he's your man!! Thanks Rick!  More Less

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Oil City, MI 48858

Reasons I absolutely would not recommend Mr. Rick Arlt:

1. As my buyer's agent, Mr. Arlt was unwilling to negotiate on my behalf with the selling agent. Instead, it felt that he preferred just being a messenger-person. 2. Although he markets himself as a short-sale expert, he was unwilling to walk me through the process of a short-sale in which I had interest. 3. Finally, he never found answers to specific questions I had about a listing. Knowing my interest, he delayed until the house was purchased by someone else, then told me he forgot about it.

There are other agents/brokers in the Mt. Pleasant area who work hard to find the right house quickly. While Mr. Arlt is very nice and I like him very much personally, I do not find him to be very interested in doing his job.

Bought a home in 2011.

This man rocks thats the only way we can describe him! He got us a beautiful home that was sold for an awesome amount for such immense quality. Rick went out of his way in every aspect to make sure everything was in-line, ready to go, and tip-top shape. He walked us through everything we needed to do. Buyers out there, Hometown Realty is who we recommend hands down!  More Less
