We needed Rica to help us buy our first home in June 2012. At first we were looking at condos/townhouses and then Rica showed us some nice single family homes. Needless to say she pointed us in the right direction, arranged an awesome home inspector who gave us the good the bad . The transparency made it a great experience. Rica also arranged an excellent mortgage arrangement for us , only for her arrangement we could raise our budget a bit more and was able to put offer for pricey nice single family. Once you are purchasing home its one time and a good mortgage support can make a huge difference.
Also In the process once we liked a home proceeded and within contingency we walk away . Again she managed the whole situation in a nice , decent , matured way . She is very protective towards her clients . For the final purchased home she did a great negotiation even in this market. We bought the house in lower than asking price !!!
The most amazing part was that from the moment we saw our house to the moment we closed and had the keys was exactly 28 days. There were no hiccups and Rica kept us looped into all of what was going on via email.
Rica is best in class and does business the right way.
