"Thank you for helping me find and purchase my first home. Looking, much less buying a home, is such a major undertaking. You made it easier. You stood by my while I looked as some "very interesting" properties. You kept my wishes in mind, through it all. Thanks for braving all kinds of weather and for your understanding when breaks from searching were much needed.

First Time Buyer
"By chance my husband found Richard at an open house. We decided to work with him during our house hunting experience becasue of his dedication to us as his clients. It was a long process, but Richard never made us feel pressured into any decision. He offered great tips along the way that we found useful when purchasing our home. He was with us at every house we were interested in looking at and flexible to meet OUR busy work schedules. I did recommend him to a relative and told her she would not feel pressured and would be pleased. I was confident that he would be able to assist her in her stressful house hunting experience. I was glad that I was right since she is now a proud homeowner. Richard is willing to go the extra mile, literally, to help ease the stress of planning and setting up your own appointments. Not that I plan to sell in the near future, but I do plan to continue recommending him as a realtor and support system for anyone I know buying and or selling. Purchasing a home is a very stressful and life changing commitment that needs the support Richard is willing to offer."

"I live in Indiana and Richard was there to help my mother sell her Chicago condo after having lived there for 32 years. His professionalism and patience was terrific. It made the fact that I did not live in Illinois no issue at all. His use of e-mail to make sure I had all current market information was most important to me. We enjoyed working with Richard very much and would recommend him to anyone."
