Testimonials

  • What we were looking for was a very unique property. We worked with Richard for about 4 months until finally he was able to find the exact property that we were were looking for. After finding the perfect home for us, Richard helped us to negotiate for almost $100k under its original asking price. When it comes to negotiation, Richard is extremely masterful with his techniques and he can think quickly and logically under lots of time pressure. The whole process of finding our home was extremely smooth and his communication skill was effective and efficient. You can tell he is passionate about his career because of the way he treats his clients. We saw one home that we wanted to submit an offer on originally, however, he strongly advised against it because of the possibility of a future building going up on the site across the street that would eventually block the view. He’s honest, direct and at the same time understanding and compassionate. I can’t recommend him enough!!

  • Ricky went above and beyond to find me exactly what I was looking for. And my needs were very specific. I was away for two weeks in between as well, and he took care of every detail for me from start to finish. I am proud to recommend Ricky to my friends and family. He has to be one of the best realtors in the Lower Mainland.

  • Richard did a great job helping us find our first condo. We spent multiple months looking for places in different neighbourhoods in Vancouver. Richard was great in getting us in to see a lot of places, we put in some offers that did not get accepted and finally landed on a good place for us. Richard worked closely with the other realtor in negotiating on our behalf and we feel like we got a fair deal on our purchase.

  • Our experience in selling our home with Richard and Adina was terrific. I was really stressed about the thought of selling our place but they made it so easy for us. Sure, there were a few moments when we had issues with our tenants during the open house but Richard calmed everyone down and in the end the tenants were fine with the whole event. Richard is a really strong negotiator. He easily paid for their commission through negotiating for more money on our house and we sold for higher than expected. I think that's one of the most important skills I wanted in a realtor working for us - strong negotiation skills but yet he was always still very polite and easy to get along with. It seemed almost effortless for him but I know he was working hard. Are we happy with the results? Yup!!!

  • Working with Richard to sell my home was an amazing experience from start to finish. His attention to detail and willingness to keep me involved at all times was extremely comforting, knowing that he had my best interest in mind at all times. We discussed my price expectations, to which he educated me about the current market and trends surrounding the location of my home, and actually received a higher payout than what I had originally hoped for. He set up viewings of the home, and I was provided with a work back schedule of the viewing times and process, which was very nice to have to keep things organized. Once we had an offer, Richard took care off all negotiation, and put together a clause which allowed us to rent the apartment back from the buyers at under market value, until we moved into our new home, which is still 8 months away from being built. There were a few small items that needed to take care of before the buyers wanted to close (Washer leak, etc.), which was swiftly taken care of by Rich and his team, who orchestrated the small fixes around the house. All I had to do was leave the keys with the concierge to be picked up by his assistant during the day of the work to be completed. This was a massive help, as I would have been unable to take time off of work. Finally, we closed the deal, and Richard send me a heart felt video congratulating me on the sale. A great final touch to a wonderful experience. Thank you so much for your professionalism, and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

  • We used Richard to help us look for a pre-sale unit as an investment property. Not only was he able to find a property in a timely manner, he also demonstrated a tremendous understanding of financial analysis on various real estate investment opportunities. Richard was referred to us by a family friend who has used him many times in the past, and I believe his strong work ethic is vital to the success of his business. We look forward to working with Richard again on our next real estate project and we won't hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is looking for a reliable realtor!

  • Buying and selling properties previously, I have always been somewhat skeptical of real estate agents. I was never fully convinced that my interests superseded the interests of my agent. Richard was a game-changer for us and he went far beyond anything we could have expected - and I had high expectations. He converted our okay home into a gorgeous place, almost to the point where we didn’t want to sell it anymore! Not only did he suggest and guide us through recommended renovations, updates, and staging, he and his team managed the entire process in the most professional way imaginable. And while being incredibly professional, he and Paula where also amazingly personal. When we needed moving boxes on a Sunday morning, Richard was there at 8:30 dropping off boxes he had in storage, along with fresh coffees for us, lending a hand with packing everything up. The outcome of all of his effort and passion was the most stress-free real estate experience I have ever had. Not only that, we sold our home way above what we thought possible, and in an astonishingly short period of time!

  • Richard was amazing to work with. As a mortgage broker, it was great to have a personable and responsive realtor to make our mutual client's home buying process as smooth as possible. Richard is knowledgeable, professional, and driven. It was a long process of looking and bidding on other properties in a highly competitive market and Richard kept pushing and trying to find a solution. And he did just that! He really put in the work, and it showed in the results! A pleasure to work with, and an easy recommendation to others in the future.
