Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Carlsbad, CA.
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.
Rico Alexander is very nice and professional, he showed us a lot of houses in San marcos and Oceanside ,they are all beautiful ,it's too bad we decided not moving to San diego. If we change our mind in the future, we will contact Rico again.
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.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Carlsbad, CA.
Rico was amazing to work with! He was patient during the long process of looking at different condos in a variety of areas. When I finally selected one, he made a very difficult process as easy as possible. His follow up with the other agent was nothing short of miraculous. I am finally a homeowner, thanks to Rico!

I would recommend Rico to all of my friends and family. We met Rico through a referral from a close friend and he lived up to his reputation. The house buying process is difficult to say the least and Rico is there every step of the way to answer any questions about the buying and lending process.
Rico will work hard for you and come up with solutions to get you the house of your dreams!
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $250K in Oak Park, San Diego, CA.
I did a Short Sale on my East San Diego home in 2010.
What normally would have been a devastating and stressful situation actually went quite smoothly and I attribute all of that to the expertise and compassion of this realtor.
Rico is exactly that type of person you want to work with. I found him to be responsible, discrete, knowledgeable, integriful, conscientious, cooperative, flexible, considerate. I could go on. Bottom line, he's a professional gem and if you ever have an opportunity to work with him, do not hesitate. You will not be disappointed. He knows his stuff and he genuinely cares about his clients.
Sold a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $175K in Vista, CA.
Rico was very helpful in guiding my wife and I through the short sale process. He walked us through step by step with this process, which was very reassuring to us. Without his expertise, we might not have been able to get through this sometimes tedious ordeal. Rico was also very instrumental in my wife and I purchasing our first home. Prior to that, he was also our property manager. I would recommend Rico to anyone with full confidence.

I was really lucky to have Rico help me to buy first house in Encinitas.
He always make sure I'm in right track and take a time for me to understand these complicated house contracts. Because I'm from foreign country, it was very important for me to have a broker who I can truly trust. Once I made a big decision to buy a house, it went very smooth! I definitely recommend Rico to everyone who look for house!
Sold a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $300K in Sunbow II, Chula Vista, CA.
Rico Alexander helped my wife and I sell our home in Chula Vista in 2009. He sold it faster than he said he would. He negotiated the short sale and dealt with both lenders to make sure we would be legally protected. We have reviewed Rico to friends and family and will continue to do so. Great guy and has great follow up and is very professional.
As we all know, buying a home is very stressful, especially in this market! My future wife and I were brand new to SoCal when we first met Rico. He helped us find our dream home in dreamy San Diego county. Not only do help us find it, but he actually negotiated our house down over $15,000!!! At that time, unheard of in the overbid market.
Working with Rico was way more than a professional experience...in the end it became more like a best-friend/uncle/brother you love and trust helping you every step of the way. He explained everything that was going to happen step by step before it happened! It completely kept our stress levels down the whole process...
There is no doubt, if we ever move again, tracking down Rico will be our first and last option!
Thank You Rico for making our transition so easy to SoCal!!!!
