Showed home in 2014 in Bucktown, Vacaville, CA 95688.
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.

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.

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.

Mark and Kendall Richard are two of the best real estate professionals in Solano County. Mark was able to help me get out of an Exclusive Contract that was forced on me by a prior agent. I went months without being able to see any properties as prices and rates went through the roof. As soon as Mark and Kendall took me on as a client I saw what real agents are supposed to be like. We put in many offers until we finally found the right house for me and got our offer accepted. From that moment forward u dealt exclusively through Mark and I loved it. His responsiveness is better than anything I've seen and reminded me of the way I treat my customers at work as a sales person. Going from an agent that wanted to rip me off to Mark Richard was like night and day. Not one time did I feel pressured or obligated to do anything. The closing process was not painful at all compared to the nightmare stories I hear from other people. If you are looking for an honest, hard working loyal agent you need to call Mark. When he recommends you do your mortgage to Solano Mortgage (Kashala and Dawn) you better take his advise. I got the best rate possible to me with the payment that I wanted. I will be recommending Mark and Kendall Richard to anyone that I can. Thanks Mark!
