Richard represented my wife and me on the sale of lake property. He was very knowledgeable about the value of the property and the fact that nearing the end of an economic downturn at the time, we would have to be patient regarding the sales. Every aspect of his evaluation was "spot on"! The property was sold in a very reasonable time frame for a very acceptable price; we were quite pleased with the entire process and were kept informed of the progress throughout the contract. We were very satisfied with his professionalism and service.Bob & Beth B
We feel very fortunate for having had Richard as our agent for our move from New Jersey to Charlotte. He generously put in a large amount of time and legwork previewing properties for several weeks before our trip down. More importantly, he was happy to go above and beyond to ensure we had a smooth transaction. Richard is very knowledgeable and was able to help us find a great area for our family! We would highly recommend Richard to both locals as well as those moving in to the area.Rob & Tiffany E
Richard was the guy who helped me get my first home. It was a short-sale so very difficult to get and work around but thanks to the patience of Richard we were able to get it--and at a very fair price! In searching for my home, he know about Charlotte and its areas, helping me find the best location and considering my commute to work. Anytime I e-mailed or called, he was there for me, even after work hours. I appreciate his hard work in getting me my first home and recommend him to anyone I know who is looking for a home.Derrick A
Richard could not have done a better job! He is accommodating, patient and knowledgeable. He was always available to meet us at OUR convenience! His knowledge and honest opinion about the Charlotte area was a huge asset. Richard worked with us from day one, from the searching, offer processes, closing and continued to keep in touch well after we were moved in and settled. We would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!Scott & Courtney A
Richard spent almost a full year helping us find exactly the right home for our family. He always treated us with patience, kindness and good humor despite it taking so long to find our perfect home. We are thankful for the work he did on our behalf and we have no doubt he performs the same high level of service for all his clients.Jane & Jeff B
Richard is amazing! We were first time home buyers last spring. We gave Richard our wants and needs along with a few listings we would like to see. He came up with additional listings he thought we might like, one of which is now our home. It is perfect for us and we never would have found it on our own. Richard was so patient (we saw 11 houses that day) and very helpful. The closing process was very quick and efficient. I could not have had a better experience or asked for a more understanding a attentive real estate agent.Stephen & Cori S
We moved to the Charlotte area in 2010. We lived in Dallas, Texas, for 48 years and had very little knowledge of the housing market here in Charlotte. Richard was fantastic to work with in finding a home that would best meet our needs. Thanks, Richard, for making us feel so special. We love our new home.Jeff & Becky H
