Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Duvall, WA.
Rick is fantastic at finding the house you WANT in the location you WANT! I worked with Rick for a few weeks and each week we got closer to what I and my fiancé wanted. Then we found THE house.

That is when Rick's expertise really shined. He understands the market and without his knowledge we would have lost out on the house we purchased.

The Purchase process was easy (well... easy for purchasing a house) :)

Rick is fantastic and if/when we decide to move, he will be my first call.

Thank you Rick!

We came to know about Rick through one of our acquaintances. Rick had produced positive results for our friend and we thought there’s a good chance he will do the same for us. After our unsuccessful attempts to sell our house with two previous real estate agents we contacted Rick.

During our first conversation with Rick, we found him very knowledgeable and realistic agent . He had done thorough market analysis and was honest with us about our expected results at different price points.

Rick used as many unique marketing methods as needed to get our house sold. He provided guidance on what we should do prior to placing our home in the market. While the previous agent insisted on spending a hefty amount in the presentation of the house, Rick sent his staging professional to enhance the look of our property and that too with no extra cost. He created quality brochure to emphasize all of the amenities of our house to the potential buyers, featured property on the net, held open houses as often as possible and gave regular emailed/ verbal feedback on the showings. Rick was also excellent in negotiating with the buyer which helped us in getting the best possible price for our house.

We were thoroughly disappointed after our failure to sell the house with the previous agents, but Rick proved to be a seasoned agent, who displayed skill and dexterity in getting the best deal for us. We would DEFINITELY and HIGHLY recommend Rick.

Bought a home in 2014.
We were new to the area and had 3 young kids in tow when we went looking for houses. Our 6 months journey took us all over Redmond, Sammamish, Woodinville, Kirkland and Bellevue before we finally found our perfect home in Snoqualmie. Rick didn't bat an eye to our wonderings, matched our pace and was understanding of our constraints. Throughout he offered sound advice and pointed out things we otherwise would have missed. The closing process was effortless, Rick negotiated everything to our satisfaction. In short we would definitely recommend.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Lake Hills, Bellevue, WA.
Rick came highly recommended by a work colleague when I needed to sell my home and move out of state for a new job.

I was especially anxious because I would be gone before any work to prepare the home, then sell it, would be done. I'd spoken with other agents and wasn't impressed. I was impressed with Rick and he did not disappoint.

He had a fair amount of work to do, especially for a small home, but he coordinated bids for all the work that needed to be done, consulted with me at every step, appeased my hyper-critical best friend, and made my house look so much better than it ever did while I lived in it! He was thorough in his assessment of the market, was very clear about his strategy for selling my home, and his approach paid off. I couldn't have asked for a better-outcome, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for anyone looking to buy, or sell their home.

Sold a home in 2014.
Rick Smith was a great realtor to work with to sell my home. I knew that I wanted to sell, so I asked Rick to come over and tell me what the priorities were in fixing my 28 year old home. As I worked on home improvements and cleaned out clutter for the next 6 months, Rick would check in with me to see how it was going and ask if I needed anything. Finally when I was ready, he advised me on which date would be best, recommended a price, and the house sold in 6 days. In addition, he anticipated any complications ahead of time (septic issue) and it was a smooth sale. And, I ended up with a little bit over the asking price! I highly recommend Rick Smith as a realtor.

Rick was skilled and professional in managing the sale of our home. In addition to knowing the area very well, he maintains a host of connections and services that were very helpful as we sold the home by remote. I would highly recommend his services.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Woodinville, WA.
Rick Smith exceeded our expectations at every stage of the selling process. He had prepared in advance for our first meeting and had very specific concrete suggestions about how to get our home sold at the price we wanted. His support staff were all just as professional and prepared as Rick was. He was very patient with our own process of selling a home we truly love. We sold our home in 8 days at full price who could ask for more. Rick and his team made this one of the best selling experiences we have had.

Home buying is an experience of a lifetime and we’re very glad we chose Rick. His knowledge of east side homes is great! Being first time homebuyers and just 2 years living in the US, we felt it very stressful to make such a big decision and did not have a clue about anything related to home buying. We found out about Rick through some very strong recommendations at work. Rick was there every step of the way helping us out with what we need to do next, explaining very basic stuff with all the effects and side-effects of each decision we make. Being new parents we were super busy most of the time, but Rick always adjusted his schedule to meet our needs and made sure if we want to see a home – we saw it as soon as we could. We really had very specific things we were looking out in a home and we primarily looked at Sammamish homes, but after talking to Rick, he opened up our options and I’m glad he did because we checked off almost every single item in our wish list for our dream home in the kind of localities we explored. We saw more than 20 homes over 2-3 months before finalizing on one home we really liked in Klahanie. This home came to market on a weekend around 12pm on a Saturday, we saw the home at 1pm and made an offer by 5pm! I remember the home did not even have a FOR SALE sign. We lost the home initially due to a competing bid, but Rick seeing how much we loved the home advised us to go in with a very strong backup offer, and followed up very closely with seller agent and us to keep us all updated! And not only did we get the home, we got it for less than what we initially offered with closing costs paid for. If you’re buying a home on the east side, Rick should be your go-to person. Not only is he super passionate about finding you your dream home, he is fun to work with making it an enjoyable experience.

My experience with Rick was absolutely fantastic. He sold our house for us in one weekend! I am absolutely not kidding, he had an open house on Saturday and Sunday and had multiple offers for us by Sunday night already. He is patient, knowledgeable, responsive, quick, does great marketing, has a fantastic photographer, has great negotiation skills what can I say? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Woodinville, WA.
My wife and I used Rick to help us find a home when we relocated from the East coast to the Seattle area. Rick patiently worked with us for over 10 months to help us learn about the different house styles and neighborhoods. His knowledge of the area was invaluable in us finding the house we loved. He was exceptionally professional and helpful from the day we first made contact until after we closed on the house we purchased. He did everything he could to make the process as simple and painless as possible.
