I HIGHLY recommend Richard & Associates Realty if you are looking for good, honest, down to earth people to work with. Husband and wife team were Awesome !! Both were available by phone, text, and email anytime of the day to answer our questions. They hooked us up with an excellent lender and the whole house buying process was so easy !!!! We got our dream house in an awewome close-knit neighborhood. With all the horror stories there are about buying a house....this almost all came together too easily ! Thanks Richard and Kendall...you two are the best !! Sandy F , Josh L , and Heather F.

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.

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!

We moved from out of state. I found Mark while searching for homes on the internet. We were familiar with the Bay Area, but not the Fairfield and Vacaville area. Mark was very knowledgeable about the schools and neighborhoods in the area. He was able to negotiate in a very competitive market. There were 9 other offers on our house. I truly don't think we would have been able to find this great house, with excellent schools within walking distance if we had worked with another agent.

We highly recommend Mark Richard. In this very difficult market, he helped us find a home that fit our needs and desires, and helped us to obtain it at a price we were very comfortable with. This is not a small task in this very difficult market for buyers. He promptly let us know when something likely to fit our needs went on the market, and went beyond in helping us see what was likely to need work in the properties we looked at. He knew when to let us just think and observe and when to come in with information. He knows how to talk with sellers' realtors to best assist buyers. This experience was pleasant rather than as stressful as buying a house might be... largely because of him. Having dealt with realtors and buying and selling properties in the past, and having varying experiences... some quite difficult... he just has my highest ranking.
Mark is one of the BEST realtors in the Vacaville area. He helped us purchase a home recently and it was such a pleasure working with him. His knowledge of the local market and professionalism made it possible for us to find the right house and complete the purchase in less than 30 days. It was fantastic how everything went so smoothly! Definitely the right agent to see if you are looking to purchase a home!
We have worked with Mark Richards for several years now in purchasing investment properties. With his expert assistance, he has helped us purchase foreclosures, short sales and conventionally sold properties. He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the real estate market, especially, foreclosed and short sale properties. He is always very professional --- great communication skills and readily available to address our questions or concerns. His expertise in the home buying process and easy demeanor, help put one at ease in an otherwise stressful situation. We feel he genuinely cares that the buyer gets the property they will be happy with for the right price. We plan to continue working with Mark in the future and highly recommend him to anyone who needs a realtor.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Fairfield, CA.
Mark helped us purchase 4 houses last year.He knew which neighborhoods were good investments. He knows building codes and could tell us quickly if a house had problems and accurately estimate what it would cost to repair. He knew what we needed to offer to get a house but still get good value. The houses we bought have gone up by at least a third since we bought them .We were very happy with Mark! He is currently listing our home for sale.
