Ratings & Reviews

Our experience with Ricki was absolutely exceptional in every way-- I cannot recommend her highly enough! My wife and I were first time home buyers and I cannot imagine a better guide through the process than Ricki.<br/><br/>First of all, she's a great listener: she really listened to us, truly understood what we were looking for, and presented us with the right options.<br/><br/>When we found a property we wanted to pursue, she became the greatest asset for us as buyers. A true bulldog at the negotiating table-- a month later I still can't believe the quality of the deal she won for us! Moreover, she kept us in the loop every step of the way-- the negotiation with the seller's agent wasn't some mysterious black box-- we got regular, sometimes hourly updates, frank discussions of options and strategies, advice when we needed it, etc. And the end result was an outstanding deal for the house we wanted.<br/><br/>Finally, during the post-contract pre-settlement period, when the inevitable hiccups and hurdles appeared, she was a steady hand at the tiller, once again protecting our interests, giving us the right advice, making sure that the seller took care of the things that needed taking care of.<br/><br/>As I say, we are so happy where we've ended up, and HOW we ended up there, and it's due to Ricki's hard, determined, thoughtful work that we're so happy.

Dearest Joe & Rachel....There were no more thoughtful and intelligent buyers than the two of you. Open and receptive, willing to allow me navigate the sometimes rocky waters for you - trusting and knowing that I always had your best interests at heart! I pride myself on communication, especially with 1st time home-buyers - keeping my clients informed every step of the way, and I do my best to assure they have fun in the process! My goal is to cultivate more and more clients as wonderful as the two of you! Thank you for all your appreciation and kindness! Congratulations on your new home!!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Union Square, Baltimore, MD.

Ricki was a fierce negotiator on our behalf and got us a fantastic deal on our house - great price reduction, closing costs and even money for a washer-dryer! She was patient and helpful in explaining the process to us (first time home buyers) and made sure everything was clear to us at each step of the way. She is a great communicator. I also really appreciated how much time she put into the sale and all the details she took care of - paperwork, negotiations, communication with the listing agent, inspections and followups. I really can't say enough good things about Ricki. If you're buying a house in or around Baltimore, you couldn't possibly do better than to work with Ricki!

One of my passions is definitely working with 1st time home-buyers - especially when they are so smart and trust the process that I lay out for them. You two were incredible clients to work with and that made it fun and super rewarding for me! I am so grateful for opportunities such as this - to work with such wonderful buyers!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Lutherville Timonium, MD.

Ricki helped me buy an investment property in Baltimore County. Among all the other realtors I've worked with in the past, she stood out with her responsiveness and client conscientiousness. She always puts her client first. She worked patiently until I found the right property, never losing her enthusiasm; she was always extremely professional, knowledgeable, punctual, and accommodating of my schedule. She was always available and provided very good advice. I would definitely work with her again in the future and would highly recommend her.

Dear User486505 - If I was away and your request went unanswered, I sincerely apologize. I try to have an associate handle inquires in my absence. I can assure you, my clients would tell you that I am highly responsive. I hope you were able to locate a home that met your needs.

Showed home in 2013 in Roland Park, Baltimore, MD 21210.

Ricki was amazing in helping us purchase our first home. She was patient and took the time to get to know our likes and styles and was able to put together a great variety of homes for us to look at in a very short amount of time. She made herself accessible to us by phone and email for what seemed like 24 hours per day which was very helpful with our hectic work schedules. She was knowledgeable about all the Baltimore neighborhoods which was helpful since our search stretched from locust point to canton and even up to roland park and towson until we figured out exactly what we wanted. We've already recommended her to friends who were new in town who had a similar awesome experience. We will definitely work with her again in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Medfield, Baltimore, MD.

Ricki helped us relocate from NYC with patience and expertise. She was attentive to our particular needs, including driving us to and from public transportation and explaining the intricacies of every neighborhood we looked at properties in. Durning our closing process Ricki checked in consistently with us to assure that all of our questions were answered fully and in a timely fashion. The end result is that my husband and I are currently settling into a house that we love and hope to see many happy years in.

Bought a home in 2013 in Cherry Hill, Baltimore, MD 21230.

I had a wonderful experience with Ricki. As a first-time buyer, she was incredibly willing to teach and explain the steps along the way in a clear and accurate manner. Her local knowledge was excellent in terms of neighborhood pluses and minuses. She was great at matching my wants and needs within my price point, and I was able to understand what were realistic trade-offs with her advice and guidance. It was always easy to reach her either by email or phone. I had a very smooth closing process and was able to get everything I wanted in my negotiations. Above all, she's a genuinely kind and fun person who enjoys what she does. I would highly recommed her to family and friends in the area.

Jenna...Just a pure delight to work with - I felt like I was working with my sister! You were open are receptive to learning, and trusted my knowledge of the home-buying process, which made it so easy and so much fun to help you! I was as excited for you as if I were buying it for myself - and I know you are going to have many long years of pure enjoyment in your new home! I wish all my clients were as special as this one!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Riverside, Baltimore, MD.

Ricki is a great ally in the home searching process. She understood our desires and was very supportive. She adapted quickly as we changed our approach. Ricki had a lot of good ideas.

The process can be frustrating and emotional, so it is good to have someone like Ricki on your side who will support you and give you good advice.
