Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Davenport, FL.

Richard did an amazing job getting us to closing. The lenders and sellers threw every curveball at him and he responded by hitting it out of the park. At times I thought we would never get to closing with our house, but Richard assured us that he was on top of it and not to worry that he had everything handled. Richard fought for us every step of the way and for that I thank him. I recommend anyone buying their first home should get in contact with Mr. Varner as he makes you feel at ease through the whole process.

Bought a home in 2014.

Richard did an amazing job as our agent and helped us find our perfect first house! It was a short sale, and a lot of negotiation was necessary, but Richard fought hard for us to make it happen. We highly recommend him to anyone searching for their perfect home!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Orlando, FL.

I had a great experience with Richard throughout my home search. He was open and willing to gather information on all and any properties I was interested in. He stayed on top of things during the closing of my home and gave me great advice while being patient with me as I am a first time home buyer. I will highly recommend Richard to friends in the future when they decide to search for a home

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Orlando, FL.

Richard was a great in helping me find the home that I wanted. He was always available as well as patient because I am very picky with what I wanted. He always had homes for me to look at that fit what I was looking for. The realtor that I had before him always sent me homes that didn't fit what I was looking for. With Richard I got quality over quantity & I appreciated that!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Orlando, FL.

We had a fairly stressful home-buying experience (well, I suppose they're stressful for everyone, but still). We learned that we were having twins, and needed an immediate upgrade in house. In just two months, we were in a new house, and our old house was sold. Seriously. We met with Richard in mid-March, and he helped us stage the home...on April 1, the house went on the market...the average "days on market" for our zip code was 70, but our house received offers after the first day, and had a contract for sale after only 5 days. This was awesome, but obviously complicated our house search, and Richard worked hard to build a comprehensive list of homes and get us to see as many as possible as quickly as possible...After a marathon of visits, we found the perfect house, and moved in mid-May (then closed on our old house one week later). We gave Richard a tight window and a tough task, and he performed expertly.

Sold a home in 2014.

Richard Varner was knowledgeable, professional and personable. His experience proved valuable as he had a contract 2 days after the listing was posted. He provided a professional staging agent which was never available with any other agent we used before. He was always available to answer any questions we had throughout the entire process.

It is no wonder that he has won the "WHO'S WHO IN EAST ORLANDO" two years in a row!

We will use no other realtor from this day forward and neither should you!

Thank you Richard for a excellent job!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Winter Park, FL.

Until we started working with Richard, the process of house hunting was very stressful for my fiancee and I. Richard took over, and immediately started scheduling showings for houses that fit our criteria. He listened to what we were looking for and didn't try to sell us on something that didn't fit what we wanted. With his help we found exactly what we were looking for and Richard negotiated us a great deal. He worked well with our mortgage broker and the closing was very smooth. I would absolutely recommend Richard to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Central Florida.

Bought a home in 2014.

Young guy. Very enthusiastic, full of energy and always responsive. Will do whatever to help you out in his power. Here is the story: The lender want see some repairs before the deal get close. The seller do the major part. But the buyer also need do a little part such as a carpet in one room. Richard knows that the buyer (me) will replace the whole carpet later. What he do is he get one carpet from his friend and put it in which saves me a trouble.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Orlando, FL.

Richard Varner is the ultimate professional realtor! When my wife and I decided to sell our home and relocate to the Avalon Park area, Richard was the person to call. I contacted Richard on a Saturday afternoon via email and within a matter of minutes Richard called me back. I was amazed by the promptness and professionalism displayed by Richard during our telephone conversation. We agreed to meet the next day, Sunday morning. Richard arrived on time dress very professionally armed with a lot of real estate information on my house to include current sales, market research and how to price my property. Richard explained the process to my wife and I as we had never sold a house before. Richard made the process very easy to understand and provided step by step information on the sale of our residence. Before we knew we were on our way to sell our house. Richard was armed with a knowledge staff to give us advice on how to make our house more marketable and the pictures of our house were taken by a professional photographer to highlight the features of the home. Once the house was listed on the MLS by Richard we had request for viewings immediately. Richard made sure to coordinate with us as to cause minimal interruption on our family life. Richard provided valuable feedback and keep me in the loop on everything! Before you knew it our house was sold!!!! Richard handled the contracts seamlessly and very expeditiously. Now that our house was sold we used Richard services to purchase our new home. Richard’s knowledge and experience once again shined when he helped us find our new home. Richard was able to give us good pricing information on the comparable sales in the area gave us advice on various properties. We submitted a contract and the sellers accepted our offer with Richard’s assistance. Richard assisted us the entire process of selling and buying our new home and we never felt alone with Richard by our side. I would highly recommend Richard as your realtor for his knowledge, care and compassion for his customers.
