Richard is an expert when it comes to real estate. Not only does he know Connecticut extremely well, he knows everything and anything there is to know about homes and construction. Since Richard is also a contractor, he was able to point things out to my husband and I that I would have never noticed. In addition, when you ask a typical realtor, 'How much would it cost to do ____ renovation,' the realtor usually responds with a random number. This is because the average realtor has absolutely zero experience when it comes to house structures, renovations, and building. However, with Richard, it was completely opposite. He was always able to tell me exactly what would need to be done. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable, Richard was extremely responsive and made himself readily available to show my husband and I houses. We literally looked for houses for over a year, and never once did I feel like I was putting Richard out. He continuously reminded us that the house had to be just the right fit, and that we would continue to look for it until we found it! It is very rare to hear that from a realtor. Typically, they want to rush to get you into a house! I highly recommend using Richard as your realtor.
