Rick is a very good realtor! He helped me find the perfect house for my family and I to live, he made the process of buying a house a lot easier. Not only he was helpful during the buying process but he also helped us after we signed the contract. If you need a realtor I definitely recommend Rick Fillipone
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Girvin, Jacksonville, FL.
Being new to the Jacksonville area we did not have anyone to refer an agent to us. We found a house on Zillow we wanted to see so contacted the listing agent. Rick called us immediately and we set up an appointment to meet. We not only saw the house in question but he arranged for us to see 10-12 more properties. Rick was diligent, responsive and patient throughout the whole buying process. Rick saw to it that all the home inspections, closing details and all communications with the sellers were not only addressed in a professional and timely matter but with care and ease for both parties. Rick is very knowledgable of this territory and is highly skilled at the negotiations and details to make the buying process enjoyable. Rick is a very personable person and a joy to work with.
Rick is awesome. He not only helped me find the right house based on the area I wanted and at the price range I was looking at, he helped me through the entire process. I would recommend Rick to anyone looking at buying or selling a house.
Had a wonderful experience with Rick while searching for a rental in Jacksonville!
I contacted him regarding a condo he had listed, which turned out to be rented already. However, Rick still took the time to help me get another condo in the same development. He asked about what was important to me and then found a rental that was better than I expected for my tight student budget. And he did this despite the prospect of a minimal commission for him. He even negotiated the rent down for me. During the process, Rick also gave me lots of helpful advice about the Jacksonville area. He was definitely very knowledgeable about the property he showed me and the city in general. After finding a great property for me, he helped me with the application and leasing process. Rick definitely went above and beyond to help me find a home that fit my needs -- I would highly recommend him!

Betsy & Rob. Congratulations on your new home. Thank you for letting me use my local knowledge to think "outside the box". Your home is wonderful and I know you will enjoy that neighborhood and all it has to offer. Rick Filippone. the904.com
I was trying to buy a condo, but after one showing and I wasn't ready to buy, Rich started to disappear. He didn't reply my email and phone call. Later I realized, he might be thinking it's a too small business and he is too busy to help me. So I have to found another agent to help me out. It's a really bad experience.

Dear Zillow Users: This is a Zillow buyer from 2011. I was suggesting to all my clients looking for Condos in 2011 to beware of potentially serious issues. This individual should be happy that they did not buy a Condo then. I could have saved them $1000's. Sometimes you tell people the truth and they don't like what they hear, even though its the truth, they get upset. If you want a BS'er, I am not your agent. I am a straight shooter. As for not returning phone calls or emails, well that's a blatant lie, check all my other reviews.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Saint Johns, FL.
Rick knows the local market really well . I along with my family were moving from NY state and i got in contact with him about 6 months prior to buying this property. Starting from scratch he helped me see multiple properties and told me the pros and cons of each property. I had done some internet research buying a house but that was no close to his experience. He is extremely knowledgeable.Very easily accessible, prompt on time, helps you with each and every aspect of buying a house. Knows very well about the mortgage industry and gives you options to choose from. Being a practicing physician i was really busy with my schedule but he did such an excellent job that i never had an difficulty.I highly recommend him to any one and their experience buying a home will be as wonderful as mine.

Mobeen----Thanks Doc. I hope all and your family will enjoy your new home for years to come. St Johns County offers a fabulous school system and is a great place to raise a family. I hope both of your practices thrive here in North Florida.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Golden Glades - The Woods, Jacksonville, FL.
Rick was very involved and was on top of this sale every minute. I never had to chase him down for an answer and he always asked my opinion before doing anything. I have recommended him and will continue to do so.

It was great to have Rick as our realtor. He was very patient and provided advice and suggestions on the homes he showed. Rick, knows the market really well and gave as a very realistic opinion as to what a home was worth. Every time he showed us a home he had a list of what other home had recently sold on that neighborhood. This gave us a better idea whether or not it was a good deal. We bought a foreclosure and he was on top of all the massive paperwork that had to be completed, thus sparing us a lot of time. Throughout the process Rick helped us with things like getting the home inspection done, getting a loan, getting estimates for roof and pool repairs, etc., he even stopped by after 8 pm to help us turn on the water. We had a wonderful experience buying a home with Rick; everything went very smooth from choosing a home all the way to the closing table.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Beach Haven, Jacksonville, FL.
I had been floundering for about a year as to whether or not to purchase a house as I lived in a condo. Rick was very patient when I changed my mind on several occasions. It was his patience and dedication as to why I used him as a realtor. He was able to get me a great deal on a house in an area I hadn't even thought about looking.
I would highly recommend Rick and would use him again myself if I ever decide to buy another house
