  • Richard recently handled the sale of our house in Silverlake. From start tofinish, Richard was a pleasure to work with. He was professional,knowledgeable, quick to respond, and went above and beyond to sell our house.In the process of our escrow, we hit a few snags with the buyer and Richardhelped us navigate each situation and kept the process moving along. Anotheragent might be flustered, but Richard remained calm and continued to advise onpossible solutions.Other than helping us navigate a tricky buyer, Richard was also great inadvising us on various quick projects we wanted to get done before putting ourhouse on the market. He had great recommendations for dry wallers,landscapers etc.Above all, Richard has a great understanding of how to market a property tosell. He works with a great team (including stagers and photographers) and heunderstands how to price a home to maximize interest. All of this resulted in usgetting top dollar for our house. I would not hesitate to recommend Richard.

  • Richard Wilkinson was the real estate broker who handled the sale of the homeI just sold in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles. It isn't easy to tell you howgreat my experience with Richard was ... but I'll try ! I've lived in Silverlake for a long time (25 years!!), way before it was thehipster paradise it is now. I haven't used a real estate broker here in LosAngeles for years, so I was starting from scratch looking for a new person torepresent me in the sale. Richard was on my short list for brokers mainlybecause he had worked with some friends in my neighborhood who had a greatexperience with him. I did have meetings with other brokers who were familiarwith the neighborhood, some of whom were very impressive, but Richard wasthe person who impressed me the most. He turned out to be exactly the rightchoice. From square one he went beyond my expectations , researching propertyrecords and finding out more about the history of my house then even I knew .First off there was a well researched procedure based on recent house sales inthe area in order to settle on the correct pricing for my particular house. Thiswasn't an easy proposition since my place was somewhat unusual for theneighborhood , but he patiently discussed the pros and cons of various pricing
    strategies until we came to a number that we both felt would work. He then helped me in recommending a team of professionals who helpedrestore the house to a level that I never would have thought possibleconsidering the short time frame we were working in. Ever sensitive to mywishes and concerns about the process, Richard was never more than a phonecall away. He was hands-on whenever I needed him in person and always readywith an opinion that was well grounded in his years of real estate experience .His input was invaluable ! The presentation of the property, with great input from the stager andphotographer Richard recommended, was nothing short of astonishing. Theplace looked truly lovely and showed beautifully . After a couple of weeks ofopen houses we had multiple offers and I ended up accepting one that was wellover asking. He then helped me sort out the unfamiliar (To Me !!) world of escrows and thepiles of paperwork involved in the final transactions. All of this was handled withhis remarkable professionalism and good humor. Consider this a very hearty endorsement of a very talented and personableprofessional. Thanks Richard !!

  • First, an unreal level of attention to detail. The very definition of a seller'sRepresentative / Advocate. SHARP! From the initial stages of deciding how /when to list to a clear, concise timeline of the selling process, Richard waspresent, not missing a step. He was also instrumental in positioning us asbuyers on another property - which had it's own unique set of challenges! Whenthe dust settled on the sale of our property and the subsequent purchase of thenew property - we were breathing easy and delighted by the outcomes. Cheers,Richard!

  • Richard Wilkinson and the Wilkinson Properties team, including Leanna Spearwere amazing and I give them my highest recommendation to anyone lookingto buy or sell a home. It took me several years to finally pick up the phone andcall a realtor. From the moment I sat down with Richard and Leanna, I felt theirpassion for their work and their genuine interest in successfully guiding methrough the process of selling my home and buying a place much more suited tomy life. They came to our first meeting prepared with research and ready to putme on the path to selling my home. They proposed a timeline, maderecommendations for how I could prepare to show my home and ready tofinalize their research to set a price. Their research and expectations about howthings would proceed were spot on and right on schedule. I had many multipleoffers over asking that far exceeded my expectations; yet, quite in line withtheirs. I attribute the many offers to their creative marketing, includingtargeting to buyers who would likely have high interest in my property.Additionally, they made sure that we did all the necessary work to answer theprobable questions from prospective buyers in advance. In doing so, theyhelped escrow close without a hitch. At the same time they were selling myhome, the Wilkinson Properties team had me out looking for a new place to live.Leanna from Richard’s team did excellent research and got me into see placesthat aligned to my expressed desires. As a person short on time, Leanna gaveup her time to spend the day seeing a range of properties including the one thatI ended up buying. Leanna helped me secure an excellent deal and made surethat the few small issues that came up at inspection were addressed beforeclosing. I am thrilled! From beginning to end; from selling to buying; Richard,Leanna and everyone at Wilkinson Properties cared for me far more than Iexpected of any agents. They communicated with me at every step of the way,answered every question I had, were patient with me and helped me to makesmart and sound decisions. The team kept me on task by making sure I did mypart and communicated with the lender and escrow agents as necessary. Theywere professional throughout. The Wilkinson team made a complex process
    understandable. Richard and Leanna genuinely held my interest foremost andlived up to the point of view they shared with me when we first met. Richard,Leanna and the entire Wilkinson team at Keller Williams are incredible and Irecommend them highly.

  • My story is pretty funny in a way. I have never actually met Richard. We onlyspoke on the phone. I had moved out of the area and had a home that was onthe market for a year with another broker, who was supposed to be the mostexperienced and best guy in our neighborhood. That broker allowed our hometo become stigmatized for a reason that could have applied to almost everyhome in our neighborhood. We brought Richard in after year of agonizing overthis and he knew exactly how to handle the situation and talk to the buyers. Ihave told the story like this to friends, "within a week, the new broker sold ourhouse." But that is actually not true. He sold it before he even started sellingit. We had an offer before we actually went on the market. All cash and wegrabbed it and we were done. He was very accessible, responsible, smart, etc.All the attributes you look for. Explained things well. My uncle, who has beenin real estate business for 30 years in L.A. and who has done extremely well,helped me decide upon my new broker. He loved Richard right away, which issaying a lot because not only does my uncle know exactly what he is doing, buthe is also pretty picky and hard to impress. Anyway that is about all I can thinkof. I think you are great hands with Richard.

  • We developed a 6-unit new home small lot subdivision in Atwater Village.Richard took over from another agent to sell the final two homes. Whereverthere was work to be done, Richard and his team were ready to jump in to help.Not once did he say, "that is not my job," rather he offered solutions and didwhat needed to be done. He advised us on the strategy for preparing thehomes for sale, he put together a great marketing package and advised uswhen we were ready to put them back on the market. We had both homes inescrow by the end of the first open house weekend at above asking price. Iwould love to work with Richard on our next project.

  • Richard was really on it throughout the pendency of the sale of our elderlymother's home and the purchase of her new home. Our real estate transactionshad legal complexities involved. Nothing stumped him. If he didn't know theanswer, Richard quickly did his research, spoke to our attorney throughoutboth escrows, and had resources at hand.Richard was always quick to return a phone call, text, or email. He did all therunning around for us, calmed our worries, and remained positive. He wassuccessful in obtaining over and above what we anticipated selling mom's housefor AND offered less for my mom's new house. The difference in mom's favorwas over $100,000 more in her pocket.Richard is also very caring. He treated us like friends, not just clients. I couldn'tsay enough great things about our experience.

  • If your agent is "not bad for an agent" talk to Richard. You will soon settle fornothing less than his unique brand of honesty, patience, andstraightforwardness. He helped us through the purchase of our first home and,later, the sale of our first home. He was also an invaluable resource for the sixyears in-between. I cannot recommend Richard and his team highly enough.

  • We worked with Richard for years since we weren't sure when we should putour home on the market. He was always so informative and helpful.

He provided a schedule of what wecould expect and everything went as planned. We've sold many houses but ourexperience with Richard from beginning to the end was far different. We can'tsay enough good things frankly. If you take your investment(s) seriously as wedo, Richard is your agent, period.

  • In late 2015, Richard and his team sold an investment home for me inNorthwest Pasadena. They did an exceptional job throughout and made thetransaction (from my perspective) feel like it was on auto-pilot. In addition toprofessionally managing every detail and providing proactive and timelycommunication, Richard and team provided numerous value-add extras, thingslike referring outstanding vendors (e.g. staging, hardwood floor guy, etc.) andhosting a pre-launch social gathering for neighbors and local real estate folks. Ifyou want an engaged, smart and focused real estate professional then I highlyrecommend Richard.

  • I had a fantastic experience with Richard and his team who sold my home thissummer. He had great ideas about how to stage things and minorimprovements to make to get it sold. Every step along the way I felt like I wasin really capable hands. He handled everything from the photography, publicity,weekly and sometimes bi-weekly showings, and ultimately the negotiations withthe buyer. Richard really went above and beyond here and proved his value toclose the deal. At the same time I was buying a house and he put me in touchwith the amazing Dunia who helped me on that angle too. I can't recommendRichard enough!

  • Hard to imagine that any agent could be as knowledgeable, professional,personable and downright effective as Richard Wilkinson. Once we'd made thedecision, he moved with an immaculate hybrid of speed, clarity and marketinsight that astonished. The clear-eyed stage management of our interiors andexteriors resulted in photographs that seriously made me reconsider ourdecision to sell because our house looked so damned good. He was sensitive toour schedules, understood the challenges of such an enterprise and was patientwith us as we marshaled our efforts toward open house. 100 people in two daysthrough our little 1,000 square foot charmer, 12 offers within days. Richardfinessed an uh-oh moment with the appraiser after we'd accepted an offer andspirt-guided us through to close with personality, a sense of humor,appreciation and dare I say it - kindness. He's the Kevin Durant of real estateagents: a master talent who is humble to the core. (Full disclosure: he's nearNBA tall himself so trust him when he says those windows up high could usesome Windex...) Upshot? Many months later and we still have the highestselling 2 bed 1 bath home in the Eagle Rock, Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, AltaDena, Atwater areas - in the hottest market in the country. Thanks a million, formaking this potentially fraught, high-stress undertaking roll out like a walk inthe park, Richard.

Nothing stumped him. If he didn't know the answer, Richard quickly did his research, spoke to our attorney throughout both escrows, and had resources at hand. Richard was always quick to return a phone call, text, or email. He did all the running around for us, calmed our worries, and remained positive. He was successful in obtaining over and above what we anticipated selling mom's house for AND offered less for my mom's new house. The difference in mom's favor was over $100,000 more in her pocket. Richard is also very caring. He treated us like friends, not just clients. I couldn't say enough great things about our experience.

  • Richard is honest and passionate about his job. He has a stellar knowledge of the market. He went above and beyond the necessary steps to secure a house which wasn't a standard sale. I will refer him to my friends and associates. I'm so happy to have him as a resource for future sales.

  • If your agent is "not bad for an agent" talk to Richard. You will soon settle for nothing less than his unique brand of honesty, patience, and straightforwardness. He helped us through the purchase of our first home and, later, the sale of our first home. He was also an invaluable resource for the six years in-between. I cannot recommend Richard and his team highly enough.

  • I cannot say enough about Richard. He helped us find the right home quickly and put together an offer that ensured we would win a bidding war with more than 20 other bidders. As importantly, he kept us from making a mistake on a property that had too much baggage. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the East side neighborhoods we were seeking and steered us only to properties that were in line with our tastes. Lastly, he is very responsive and really fun to hang out with. You won't go wrong with Richard.

  • Not only did he get me more than I needed, the process could not have been easier. In selling a multi unit property, he gathered all of the information personally and did as much of the work as he could do making my life as easy as possible. He was spot on with the numbers, he was spot on on how to navigate the process...already with back up plans in place if plan B was needed. Plan B was needed and therefore it wasn't a big deal or a huge set back as we were prepared. He was fantastic about explaining anything you needed and was honest in what would be needed to actually get it done. Efficient, good at his job, easy to work with....can't ask for more.

  • "First, an unreal level of attention to detail. The very definition of a seller’s Representative / Advocate. SHARP! From the initial stages of deciding how / when to list to a clear, concise timeline of the selling process, Richard was present, not missing a step. He was also instrumental in positioning us as buyers on another property – which had it’s own unique set of challenges! When the dust settled on the sale of our property and the subsequent purchase of the new property – we were breathing easy and delighted by the outcomes. Cheers, Richard!"

  • "We worked with Richard for years since we weren’t sure when we should put our home on the market. He was always so informative and helpful. We live out of town so he assured us everything would be handled appropriately and efficiently in our absence and it was and then some. After we prepared our home to list, Richard completely took over. He provided a schedule of what we could expect and everything went as planned. We’ve sold many houses but our experience with Richard from beginning to the end was far different. We can’t say enough good things frankly. If you take your investment(s) seriously as we do, Richard is your agent, period."

  • "If you want to be certain that you will succeed in acquiring your desired property, you should hire Richard Wilkinson. After selling a long-held family farm in Nebraska, my husband and I wanted to acquire a residential income property in Los Angeles. I am a novice in this regard, and knew that I needed someone with a thorough understanding of the many neighborhoods in Los Angeles. As you know, there are thousands of Realtor’s to choose from and after speaking to several including Richard, it was clear that he was the best choice. Here’s why. First, he listens. Then he asks questions to confirm that he truly understands what exactly you are looking for. These conversations were exceedingly helpful in enabling me to be certain that when we made an offer on a property, I was 100% comfortable with the location, price and condition. Second, I always felt that he had my interests in mind, not his own commission. For example, the first duplex we made an offer on quickly went $300,000 over asking price and had 17 competing offers in the first round. Ultimately, we were in the final 3, but when he sensed that the price was going above my comfort level and I declined to pursue it, he calmly said we would put it aside and move forward: no drama, no irritation, no passive aggression, just reassurance that we would find the right property. Third, Richard is a skilled communicator. He may not be a therapist, but he is adept at gaining an understanding of the listing agent and seller. In this competitive market, I cannot emphasize strongly enough how important this quality is. When he writes your offer, it isn’t sent to the seller on a hope and a prayer that it will somehow be accepted. It is carefully crafted to address the seller’s concerns so that yours will be the winning offer. Fourth, his assistant Leanna is a dream: super organized, thorough and doesn’t let one detail slip through the cracks. Within minutes of your accepted offer, Leanna is on it, scheduling any inspections (after you determine with Richard which ones you need) during the contingency phase so that you can decide if you want to move forward. Once you are in escrow, she is on top of all of the moving parts making sure everything is on track. She is masterful at her job, and a resource for any and all trades you may need after you’ve closed escrow. Finally, Richard is passionate about his job and has a stellar work ethic. This is not a 9 to 5 gig for him: he works tenaciously to make sure your goals are met. During this process, we encountered recalcitrant tenants, uninformed listing agents and sellers with mixed messages. But through it all, Richard kept the lines of communication open so that every issue was resolved and we were able to acquire a perfect income property. I promise you, he is the key to helping you achieve your housing dream."

This aspect was significant for me as I had relocated out of state prior to the decision to put the property on the market."

  • "Richard and his team sold an investment home for me in Northwest Pasadena. They did an exceptional job throughout and made the transaction (from my perspective) feel like it was on auto-pilot. In addition to professionally managing every detail and providing proactive and timely communication, Richard and team provided numerous value-add extras, things like referring outstanding vendors (e.g. staging, hardwood floor guy, etc.) and hosting a pre-launch social gathering for neighbors and local real estate folks. If you want an engaged, smart and focused real estate professional then I highly recommend Richard."

  • "I had a fantastic experience with Richard and his team who sold my home this summer. He had great ideas about how to stage things and minor improvements to make to get it sold. Every step along the way I felt like I was in really capable hands. He handled everything from the photography, publicity, weekly and sometimes bi-weekly showings, and ultimately the negotiations with the buyer. Richard really went above and beyond here and proved his value to close the deal. At the same time I was buying a house and he put me in touch with his amazing Buyer’s Agent Dunia who helped me on that angle too. I can’t recommend Richard enough!"

  • "Richard Wilkinson and the Wilkinson Properties team, including Leanna Spear were amazing and I give them my highest recommendation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. It took me several years to finally pick up the phone and call a realtor. From the moment I sat down with Richard and Leanna, I felt their passion for their work and their genuine interest in successfully guiding me through the process of selling my home and buying a place much more suited to my life. They came to our first meeting prepared with research and ready to put me on the path to selling my home. They proposed a timeline, made recommendations for how I could prepare to show my home and ready to finalize their research to set a price. Their research and expectations about how things would proceed were spot on and right on schedule. I had many multiple offers over asking that far exceeded my expectations; yet, quite in line with theirs. I attribute the many offers to their creative marketing, including targeting to buyers who would likely have high interest in my property. Additionally, they made sure that we did all the necessary work to answer the probable questions from prospective buyers in advance. In doing so, they helped escrow close without a hitch. At the same time they were selling my home, the Wilkinson Properties team had me out looking for a new place to live. Leanna from Richard’s team did excellent research and got me into see places that aligned to my expressed desires. As a person short on time, Leanna gave up her time to spend the day seeing a range of properties including the one that I ended up buying. Leanna helped me secure an excellent deal and made sure that the few small issues that came up at inspection were addressed before closing. I am thrilled! From beginning to end; from selling to buying; Richard, Leanna and everyone at Wilkinson Properties cared for me far more than I expected of any agents. They communicated with me at every step of the way, answered every question I had, were patient with me and helped me to make smart and sound decisions. The team kept me on task by making sure I did my part and communicated with the lender and escrow agents as necessary. They were professional throughout. The Wilkinson team made a complex process understandable. Richard and Leanna genuinely held my interest foremost and lived up to the point of view they shared with me when we first met. Richard, Leanna and the entire Wilkinson team at Keller Williams are incredible and I recommend them highly."

  • "Richard helped us zip from 0 to 100mph as first time home buyers with remarkable care, attention, and clarity. The first time we called him, it was because we had just fallen in love with a home that everyone else and their brother had fallen in love with too, but we’d never spoken to an agent in our lives. We had impulsively decided we wanted to put in an offer and had zero idea how much about the process we didn’t yet know. We called Richard after having had some fellow passengers on a plane recommend him to us long before, and without batting an eye he assessed our situation, took enormous time and care getting us up to speed with all the elements of the process we were oblivious to, and got us into the running in a hotly competitive market in a matter of hours. That first house ended up not being as perfect for us as we thought. He helped council us through that process, and then when the REAL great match came along a few weeks later, he got us into the house against a swarm of other offers. We are thrilled and grateful to have gotten to work with him, and would definitely do so again!"

Also very much felt like zero pressure to do anything until we really found the exact place we wanted – so not at all a pushy person. We wanted an old characterful place in Echo Park with a large garden for a good price, which is obviously hard to find, but we got exactly what we wanted. Highly recommended."

After looking at houses very actively for several months, we decided to go for a home that we really liked but that was overpriced. Richard saw us through no fewer than seven counteroffers, until we arrived at a deal that we felt good about. He never rushed us or made us feel like we were wasting his time. Secondly, he offered crucial advice throughout what became rather complex negotiations, and he found a way to make our deal happen, even after the selling party seemed unwilling to negotiate price any further. Richard taught us a lot throughout the process, and we really enjoyed spending time with him, too. He’s very smart and has a great sense of humor, which is really useful in this business. And finally, Richard has a strong sense of integrity; we really felt that we could trust him. We love our new home and feel that we got a really great deal in a difficult market. Thank you, Richard!"

  • "Hard to imagine that any agent could be as knowledgeable, professional, personable and downright effective as Richard Wilkinson. Once we’d made the decision, he moved with an immaculate hybrid of speed, clarity and market insight that astonished. The clear-eyed stage management of our interiors and exteriors resulted in photographs that seriously made me reconsider our decision to sell because our house looked so damned good. He was sensitive to our schedules, understood the challenges of such an enterprise and was patient with us as we marshaled our efforts toward open house. 100 people in two days through our little 1,000 square foot charmer, 12 offers within days. Richard finessed an uh-oh moment with the appraiser after we’d accepted an offer and spirt-guided us through to close with personality, a sense of humor, appreciation and dare I say it – kindness. He’s the Kevin Durant of real estate agents: a master talent who is humble to the core. (Full disclosure: he’s near NBA tall himself so trust him when he says those windows up high could use some Windex…) Upshot? Many months later and we still have the highest selling 2 bed 1 bath home in the Eagle Rock, Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, Alta Dena, Atwater areas – in the hottest market in the country. Thanks a million, for making this potentially fraught, high-stress undertaking roll out like a walk in the park, Richard. Our little family landed on our collective feet with a tidy sum in our bank account thanks to you. You. D. Man."

He was sensitive to our schedules, understood the challenges of such an enterprise and was patient with us as we marshaled our efforts toward open house. 100 people in two days through our little 1,000 square foot charmer, 12 offers within days. Richard finessed an uh-oh moment with the appraiser after we’d accepted an offer and spirt-guided us through to close with personality, a sense of humor, appreciation and dare I say it – kindness. He’s the Kevin Durant of real estate agents: a master talent who is humble to the core. (Full disclosure: he’s near NBA tall himself so trust him when he says those windows up high could use some Windex…) Upshot? Many months later and we still have the highest selling 2 bed 1 bath home in the Eagle Rock, Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, Alta Dena, Atwater areas – in the hottest market in the country. Thanks a million, for making this potentially fraught, high-stress undertaking roll out like a walk in the park, Richard. Our little family landed on our collective feet with a tidy sum in our bank account thanks to you. You. D. Man."

  • "Richard is a fantastic realtor whose experience and knowledge of the area combined with his patience with our many questions made him a pleasure to work with. He quickly and efficiently set up showings for us in a wide range of eastside LA neighborhoods, and was game to work with us in envisioning the potential in even the most extreme “fixer” properties. When it came time for us to put in couple of offers on houses that became very competitive bidding situations, it was his ability to structure a clean and strong deal, as well as his well-established relationships with other local realtors, that helped us remain in the running, and that eventually enabled us to buy the house we really wanted. Also, we really appreciated his sense of humor! We wholeheartedly recommend Richard. Everyone should be so lucky to work with such a great realtor!"

  • "Richard did a terrific job on the sale of my brother Garland’s home. With all of the problems it presented I am very pleased that he accomplished the sale in such a short period of time and I did not experience any stress during the sale.


    I can attribute the sale to his knowledge and experience in his profession but the care and kindness he displayed throughout the sale he showed me was such an extra bonus. Richard received a price for the home which I never thought possible for the shape the home was in. All of the extra things he took care of during the sale I would not have considered or been able to complete.


    The amount of money my brother gained from the sale will be able to aid him for the rest of his life.

  • "Richard is the best. The first time I bought a house with Richard, I didn’t know much about the house buying process. Richard was really patient in the process and I never felt like he was pressuring, persuading, or rushing me into any houses. He was very knowledgable about the neighborhoods and once I found the house that I wanted, he was very good about walking me through the process. Not only was he thorough about the process but he was honest about what he thought was a competitive offer. Although he offered his opinion on a competitive offer, he said the most important thing in an offer was making sure I was comfortable with it. I appreciated that. Once the deal was closed, he took the time to help me with post-purchasing things like advice on remodeling. He’s genuinely a nice guy.


    Richard was so great that when I recently went through the house purchasing process again, there wasn’t even a thought of using someone else. Once again, Richard was great. Even though this was my second go, he was still patient with the search and always had my interest in mind.


    If I am fortunate enough to go through this process again, I will definitely use Richard!!

  • "Richard was extremely helpful from the very beginning to the end of the process, offering useful advice, suggestions, information and referrals. He was sensitive to our stated needs and did a great job of offering us information and advice to help make informed decisions without pushing us one way or another. He helped us widen our home search into areas that we had not considered, but still fit our criteria.


    Richard was detail-oriented in helping us strategize and craft offers that would be competitive in an very hot market with lots of competition from many “all cash” investors. He was very helpful during the escrow process in helping us review inspection reports, submitting documents in a timely fashion and focusing on priorities to close the transaction. We were very satisfied with his services."

  • "Our home buying experience was a process that took over a year. Like most couples we were looking for our dream home. Richard was a great asset from the very beginning. He sent us listings from the different areas in which we were interested and because of our crazy schedules, met us at all hours ofthe day and night to show us different homes. When we found our home, he truly took a next level approach to walking us through every aspect of the process. From inspections to negotiating our repairs to helping us find a great lender, Richard was on point. We closed escrow on our dream home last week and we could not have done it without Richard."

  • "We’re very happy with our agent, Richard Wilkinson. He went through a lot helping us get this house. We ran into several problems along the way, including some difficulties getting the official sign-off on the city’s Residential Property Report, which is necessary to legally inhabit the house. When it became clear to all parties that our interest rate lock would expire before the sign-off could be obtained, he even negotiated with the seller to cover the Interest rate lock extension fees. Overall, we found that he is very knowledgeable and resourceful, and we would recommend him to everybody."

  • "My story is pretty funny in a way. I have never actually met Richard. We only spoke on the phone. I had moved out of the area and had a home that was on the market for a year with another broker, who was supposed to be the most experienced and best guy in our neighborhood. That broker allowed our home to become stigmatized for a reason that could have applied to almost every home in our neighborhood. We brought Richard in after year of agonizing over this and he knew exactly how to handle the situation and talk to the buyers. I have told the story like this to friends, “within a week, the new broker sold our house.” But that is actually not true. He sold it before he even started selling it. We had an offer before we actually went on the market. All cash and we grabbed it and we were done. He was very accessible, responsible, smart, etc. All the attributes you look for. Explained things well. My uncle, who has been in real estate business for 30 years in L.A. and who has done extremely well, helped me decide upon my new broker. He loved Richard right away, which is saying a lot because not only does my uncle know exactly what he is doing, but he is also pretty picky and hard to impress. Anyway that is about all I can think of. I think you are great hands with Richard."

Two times before I found the place I ended up in, we looked at a house that I liked initially, but seemed risky in that they might be coming with maintenance headaches. Both times, rather than grab an easy commission, Richard advised me to keep looking for something better. Added to all this, Richard is a terrific and funny guy, which helped make the long search not only bearable, but a lot of fun. I almost want to get a new house just so I can hang out with him again.
