Team reviews

We used Rick Hale & Associates to sell and purchase a home. We were extremely pleased with the level of professionalism of our real estate agent, her knowledge of the Atlanta real estate market, ability to provide critical information about comps with both the purchase and sale of our homes (under contract on our home sale within 5 days and successful new home purchase with 9 other offers), expertise with negotiations/contracts, and willingness to refer service workers, inspectors, and other critical services needed when buying or selling a home. We interacted with several members of the team who were quick to follow up and just a delight to work with. Home selling and buying is such an emotional process and we're so thankful to have worked with professionals that understand how important a decision it is. We would highly recommend Rick Hale and the whole team!

Bought a home in 2012 in Hog Mountain, Dacula, GA 30019.
Primary point of contact: Ganten Kirby

I had the pleasure of working with Rick Hale and Associates on a purchase of a home in the Atlanta, (Gwinnett County) area. As anyone from the area knows this can be a daunting task given the size and choices; our Realtor- Ganten Kirby was very patient throughout the entire search. Once we settled on a home, Ganten was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in navigating the entire process, from negotiation to resolving repairs, to finalizing last minute details for closing. Overall we had a very stress free process and Ganten was a big part of that. I highly recommend him and Rick Hale and Associates and would gladly work with them again on a future purchase or sale!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Lake Claire, Atlanta, GA.
Primary point of contact: Joel Madden

Joel Madden w/ Rick Hale & Associates is the perfect real estate professional. He quickly understood the kind of property that appealed to me and effectively pre-sorted the possibilities for using my limited time for house-hunting. His patience with my decision-making process and his ready availability for the sporadic times I could be in the city were greatly appreciated. Once I was ready to make an offer, he guided me through every step of the process, remaining in regular communication to keep me apprised of its progress toward the final closing. I strongly recommend Joel, without any reservations. Beyond being a superb professional, he's an incredibly nice person.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Roswell, GA.

Rick handled all the process details and negotiation flawlessly, getting us far more equity than we thought possible just because he knew what to ask, when to ask, and how much to ask for.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $50K in Downtown, Atlanta, GA.
Primary point of contact: Connie Spaziano

Just a note of thanks to you and your office for an absolutely smooth and pleasant experience in the sale of my downtown condo. You were the consummate professional from our first meeting in your office through Friday’s closing. The Downtown Atlanta market presents some unique challenges, and I can’t imagine a better strategy of marketing, pricing, and regular updates than your approach. That you came so highly recommended speaks volumes. Rest assured, I will pass along the same high praise.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Marietta, GA.
Primary point of contact: Connie Spaziano

We turned to Connie Spaziano with Rick Hale & Associates at the recommendation of our daughter and son in law who bought their first home from her. My husband and I have bought and sold several homes in the past but this home purchase was different. This time we were looking for our forever home. There’s no question that every home purchase is important but a forever home definitely raises the stakes. Not only did it need to be the perfect fit, but when found, we needed to know that our agent was going to get us all the way to closing. Connie recognized that this home was not going to be found in a “weekend outing” but was going to take months of searching. Her patience in that search was invaluable and so was her professionalism. A key example of this was her ability to let us form our own opinion of the homes we visited. The simple fact is, what’s perfect for us, isn’t necessarily perfect for her or someone else. We had worked with past agents that got us wrapped in their excitement about a home from their perspective. Connie recognized that choosing the best home for us was our decision and that her job was to protect us from making a costly or poor investment by presenting us with all the facts about the pricing, comps, quality of the neighborhood… etc. Her attention to detail and that she had an entire team in place with a proven track record of providing quality service and efficiency in getting the deal closed without delays or problems was invaluable. In short. It was the best home buying experience we’ve ever had. Our only regret was not having used her on all our other home purchases.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Alpharetta, GA.

Rick Hale and his team were an absolute pleasure to do business with. My family and I were relocated as a result of a job transfer and Rick was one of three Real Estate agents I was referred to for the listing of our home. After meeting with Rick we knew there was no need to interview additional agents. Rick very quickly completed a thorough analysis of our home and the surrounding market, took the time to walk us through all of our options and helped us price our home exactly where it needed to be based on our area and current market activity. We listed our home and had multiple competitive offers the very first day and went to contract at our full list price in one day! From effective staging to the finest of transactional details, Rick and his team proactively addressed every question we had before we could even ask it! We have participated in Real Estate transactions nine times over the last 14 years and Rick Hale and Associates was far and away the best partner we have ever worked with. Rick and his team have the knowledge, expertise, honesty and professionalism few others possess in the Real Estate industry today. We could not have asked for a more seamless process and cannot thank Rick and his team enough for making our transition a smooth and positive experience. I would refer Rick Hale and Associates to my closest friends or relatives in a heartbeat!
