Ratings & Reviews

I worked with Rico to sell my father's home. Rico was not only knowledgeable and a good negotiator, but he was an absolute pleasure to work with. Working long distance by phone and email went smoothly and he was very prompt with his responses to my questions. He worked diligently and often late into the evening to get necessary paperwork completed and forwarded to escrow. I feel comfortable with the price we got for the house, and we had an several offers on the table within just a few days of putting it on the market. Although we had accepted an offer and was in escrow, Rico held an open house and got a good backup offer just in case the first deal fell through. When the buying party wanted some unreasonable demands to be met, Rico fought for us and refused the demands, ready to bring in the backup offer if the buyer pulled out--but they didn't. Escrow finished in about 30 days, and Rico was on top of it right to the end. I would highly recommend Rico to anyone wishing to sell a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in San Carlos, San Diego, CA.

Rico was an excellent agent. I highly recommend Rico if you are looking for a honest, knowledgeable agent. He was reliable and VERY patient thru our purchase of our first home that was also a short sale. Rico responded quickly to all our inquiry's and was familiar with com-parable's in the areas that we were looking at. He went out of his way to make sure we understood the short sale process and supported our decisions when it came to negotiating the final cost with the financial institution.

Rico took a stressful process and made it trouble free.
