"Months before being ready to commit to looking for a property I had found Rick’s contact information and website from several listings. I remember sending him a quick email about one and was very impressed with how knowledgeable and helpful he was. Even though I was not ready at this time to move forward I kept his contact information and once I was ready he was quick to respond, set up meetings, and begin the process of looking for a home. I am so happy that I sought out Rick, it was the best choice!
Rick made this entire process not only easy for me but quite enjoyable! I never felt rushed or stressed with making decisions and Rick was always very honest and knowledgeable about properties, neighborhoods, price range, and other factors. He also had an AMAZING recommendation for a bank that I am now using which greatly assisted and sped up my loan process! This is also true with the process of escrow / title company. I always felt well taken care of with Rick and everyone that he recommended.
I wish I could rate Rick even higher than excellent! As a first time buyer I knew next to nothing about the process and what I had to do, especially within the Bay Area market which for me was quite overwhelming at first. Rick was always quite accessible and got back to me quickly with any questions or concerns I had, no matter how small they might have been. He was always approachable and friendly which made this experience fun and not so much a “task” to do. His professionalism and experience really showed as he was able to show me multiple homes that not only fit my needs and budget, but also my wants. He also explained things very well and was extremely patient!
Overall this was a fantastic experience and I am so pleased with working with Rick, Now Valley, and finding my new home!"

Hard to believe it’s been almost a year since we closed on our house. We are still so grateful for all that you did. We know it wasn’t easy! In fact, we still comment that we can’t believe we managed to overcome all the unexpected hurdles and get it. Anyway, I know this is long overdue, but we wanted to thank you for all your help!

We worked with Rick on both the sale of a property and the purchase of one. To say he was fantastic to work with is an understatement. He went way beyond expectations from scoping out the face lift of the property we were selling, to meeting contractors and project managing the work to deadline to going to the city offices to obtain the necessary certifications we needed for the sewer lateral. On the buyer side, he lined us up with a great lender and was attentive to all the timelines and details to help us stay on track so we closed on time. He definitely surpassed all of our expectations of the service level an agent provides. Do not hesitate using Rick is you are considering either selling or buying a property.
"Rick is absolutely amazing. He took an extraordinarily stressful situation and made the most of it for me and my budget. I always felt he was in my corner to help me get the home I wanted. I would recommend him without hesitation.
Rick is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I love how he suggested we go back to the home I ultimately ended up buying 3 times before we made the offer. I also love how resourceful he is in researching the situation to give me a complete picture of what was happening. He's the best!
Everyone Rick works with is great. Everything about my transaction was smooth and as easy as it could be for a closing. This is my 4th home purchase, so I have some point of comparison."
"We had previously been working with an agent in the East Bay but found that Rick was a much better fit for our family. Rick listened to what we wanted and understood what we were looking for. He was patient throughout the entire process and helped us narrow down the options we had until we were able to find our dream home!
Rick was very patient and made himself available to my father, who was not able to see houses in person. He was thorough and was knowledgable about how to approach purchasing real estate in such a competitive market. I would recommend Rick to my friends and family as a valuable resource to navigate the insane San Francisco real estate market!"
