Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Apopka, FL.
The entire process of selling our home and buying our new home went smoothly. Rick was optimistic, yet honest, from the beginning. His confidence put us at ease. Everything that he said would happen, did happen, on schedule. We were very impressed with his knowledge and experience. We did have to call him to get updates, but he always got back to us quickly and was available if we needed him. We had a very positive experience with Rick Belben.

We've bought two homes one with Rick one with out. Our first home we used a well advertised company, big company figured good service. We didnt relize how horrable they were untill we started working with Rick. Rick made it a point to show us a few diff homes to help us aswell as himself fully understand what we wanted in a home, i said home not a house for a reason and Rick understands this differance. so much so sadly i dont see needing his service again for quite a long time. however anytime i hear someone speaking of house hunting i throw Ricks name into the conversation.

I highly recommend Rick for any of your Real Estate needs. He took the time to listen which can be hard to do in stressful situations, such as going thru the buying process.
He has a great feel for the market and finding that special home. I will definitely use Rick and Joann during my next purchase.

Rick did a very good job of helping us locate our home. He knew what we were looking for and let us know while we were out of town. He advised us to get back to Florida to review the home before another potential buyer could step in and buy it out from under us. Took us around the entire area whenever. We needed to look.
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Sibley, Arabi, GA 31712
I flew to Florida specifcally to meet with Mr. Belben about the sale of my mother's home. He met me, seemed personable, and we discussed a plan. Once I returned home, however, he basically disappeared. He would not answer my calls, return my messages, respond to my emails--nothing. Calls to both his home and business numbers were ignored. I have never been treated like this by a professional.
I wish Mr. Belben well, but I would suggest that you stay far away. And, Mr. Belben, I'd like my house keys returned...
