Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Vacaville, CA.
I have tried to work with numerous Realtors in my search for the right home. After some time, I found Mark Richard; Well, actually Kendall (Marks wife) found me. Mark and his staff were superior in every phase of my home buying experience. They were extremely patient with me and did not try to "hard sell" me in any way at all. He made sure I was completely happy with my home purchase and was available any time I needed him or his staff. Please, if you're searching for a home and want the right realtor, give Mark and his team a call today...I highly recommend this team and can say with certainty, you will not be disappointed in any way!!! Thanks again Mark and Kendall and staff, you guys are truly amazing!!!

Being a first time buyer, we had a lot of questions and no idea of how the home buying process worked! We were so lucky to have come across Mark! He had a lot of patience in answering our questions and a great understanding of how overwhelming buying a first home can be. He worked with us to help us find our home by keeping us up to date as houses became available, scheduled as many viewings as we would like- and was always flexible with his schedule to work around ours. He did a great job walking us through the process step by step! We really enjoyed working with Mark, and felt as though we were very much taken care of.

Mark’s thorough attention to details made him stand out for me. Moving from a city home to a first time country home, I had many questions. He lives in the country and knew the answers, or he’d get them. He was never late for my many appointments. I was looking for almost a year. When he’d leave town he’d regularly communicate with me, always making me feel I was his number one client. He impressed me when, on his own, he checked up on properties my offer wasn’t accepted on to see if the contract wasn’t going to closing and I had another chance. It almost paid off too. I never felt pressured, or that he was doing me a favor. He is an honest, hardworking professional doing an outstanding job.

Mark and his wife Kendall are simply outstanding. Mark is extremely knowledgeable about Vacaville and the surrounding areas. For someone like us that came from New York, and had no friends or family here to advise us, his expertise was priceless. Since we were looking for country property, this was especially important. He made sure we understood, with every house we looked at, what the pros and cons of that particular house could be. We eventually found a home that was even better than we thought we’d get, and he worked to help us negotiate to get it. Mark and Kendall don’t just end the relationship at closing, though – since we’ve moved in they have been available to answer any questions we have, and continue to be very helpful to us as we get acclimated. Mark and Kendall are truly special people, who genuinely care about their clients. My husband and I consider ourselves very fortunate that we found real estate agents who have so much integrity.

Mark has helped bought and sold few properties for me in the last few years. I am very pleased with his service overall. He is very knowledgable about the current market trend and is very skillful in negotiating either as a Buyer or Seller. I highly recommend Mark to anyone and I will continue to use his service.

I flew to Northern California from Texas for 4 days to size up the area, find a home and look at schools for our children. I spent a day and a half with another agent and quickly realized it was not a good match. I immediately called Mr. Richard, who I had previously spoken to over the phone. He was very responsive and showed me several properties in my short time left. He then videotaped and sent my deployed husband a walk through of the property before we made an offer. Mark Richard went above and beyond the usual service an agent would provide and he helped us find a fantastic home at a very stressful time in our lives. Furthermore, we closed several weeks before our move. Mark stopped by the property several times and made sure all was in good working order when we arrived. I would highly recommend Mark Richard as a superior agent. He is very knowledgable of the local real estate market and the most honest, responsive agent I have work with so far. I have referred others to him and I would use him again tomorrow!

Mark and his wife Kendall not only make a terrific team, but they are the hardest working folks I've ever met. They are go getters for sure. If you have the opportunity to make them a first choice, don't hesitate! We had to go through a few years of ups/downs and more disappointments before we had the pleasure of meeting Mark.
They are reliable,dependable & honest. We really felt heard & understood. Mark did an exceptional job explaining each step in every process. Mark went to bat for us and got our family into our dream home. We are forever grateful.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Vallejo, CA.
We retained Mark to help us navigate through a very difficult transaction involving a somewhat dilapidated property in Vallejo's Historical Preservation District. I believe Mark owns investment property in Vallejo and was adept in the local market. (In practical terms, because of its condition, the property could only be sold to cash investors.) He foresaw and alerted us to potential problems with a predatory city government and local squatters. Yes, we experienced both first-hand. Mark was able to attract multiple offers and we we were able to close with relative speed.
