“EXPERIENCED MARKETING & NEGOTIATION — SIMPLY THE BEST If I had to name the best financial decisions I’ve made on one hand, Richard was responsible for two of them. In looking for an agent, I wanted a realtor certified in meeting the ethical standards of the profession. In addition, the best realtor would give me seasoned advice that saved time. Below are separate experiences I’ve had with Richard over the last decade where he demonstrated those strengths. BUYING In buying a home, Richard helped me with many aspects, such as preparing my finances as self-employed, handling aspects that reduced my stress, and pushing (by my request) so I wouldn’t drag my feet. At the time, I didn’t know exactly what kind of home I wanted or how much I should put into one. Richard handpicked homes to show that helped refine my preferences. This led to finding a home I loved, and we made an offer within 24 hours of the listing; however, we were outbid by a cash investor. Richard went to bat for me and negotiated in such a way that my offer won out. I built my life in that home and was always grateful for it. Eventually, its value appreciated higher than my most optimistic estimate. SELLING In selling our home, Richard helped us with: cleaners, staging, photos, pricing, marketing, and negotiating. If your agent isn’t doing this for your listing, I would ask if you have the right person in your corner. After reading through so many other listings that didn’t explain what was special, had inexplicable photos, or led to deals that fell through, I came to appreciate how great a job Richard did with marketing our listing. He knew exactly what the home “symbolized to a buyer” in the description and hit a home run with the photos. Along the way, Richard kept me updated on housing trends and comps. His advice let us set a price which led to multiple offers over asking. Even though I don’t believe in trying to time the market, after it was over, we looked back and couldn’t believe how lucky we were in having Richard position us for the highest valuation we could get. Heading into escrow, Richard’s negotiating experience came to be indispensible yet again. The RE market during this time was insanity, and as a result, a few potential buyers were behaving irrationally. Richard handled these unexpected stressors with grace and shielded us from having to deal with unpleasantries. At the beginning, my partner was skeptical of all RE agents because of her past experiences. By the end, she completely changed her mind—she said she’d never seen a realtor do all that Richard had done for us. SUMMARY I’m sometimes hesitant to give referrals because my reputation is on the line. But I refer Richard to friends and family whenever I can. Get Richard to represent you, and make one of your best financial decisions.”
