Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $850K in Redmond, WA.

Rick Smith has helped us with real estate transactions on more than one account. We recently sold a home in Redmond and were extremely pleased with all aspects of the transaction. Rick and his staff are professional, trustworthy and competent. Rick provides professional photography and impressive color brochures for your home, local newspaper advertisements promoting the home. Furthermore, he held more open houses than any realtor I know. He is very knowledgeable and well networked which means a fast sale for top dollar! We will definitely be using Rick Smith for our future real estate transactions.

Bought a home in 2014.

We had a very positive experience with Rick Smith. We worked with him for the first time to buy a house. Rick is great all over, but one thing that stands out is his patience. He did not push us at any time. When deciding the price, he would bring us the data points and his insight to make a decision easily. He wanted to make sure that we buy the house we love. As the market was hot and supply was low, there were not many houses in the market. Rick did mailing campaigns and brought additional leads. He returned our calls/emails promptly. He is very experienced and made sure that our buying process was smooth. He is very easy to work with.

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND Rick.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $850K in Redmond, WA.

Rick is an incredible real estate agent. He is extremely easy to work with. This was our second home purchase; first one with Rick. This time around, the process was warm and fun. He took time to understand us well and our needs. He never forced us into a property, but would give his advice and ask us to make the final decision. We never felt hurried. When it came time for bidding, he advised a whole bunch of tactics, and we chose to go with most of them. Finally, we got the house we wanted. Before close, there was a small issue we ran into with the seller, but Rick was gracious enough to take care of it himself (rather than getting into a battle with the sellers agent) rather than the experience getting sour. Overall, I would highly recommend Rick for a buyer's agent. Don't have experience yet as a sellers agent, but I am sure if we are selling, we would use him.

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!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Eastgate, Bellevue, WA.

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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Redmond, WA.

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.
