Richard helped me to purchase my first home in Albuquerque in 2009. At the time, I was working with another realtor who just wasn't cutting it and was not finding homes within budget and in working order. Richard helped me to find a home and negotiated more than we both thought was possible. Richard remained in contact with me through mailers, email, etc.. over the years. After I learned of an out of state move in 2014, I sought out Richard to paint a picture of what I'd be looking at if I sold the home. He immediately came to visit the home to see the homes current condition including remodels, then provided a honest and detailed market analysis. I decided to wait it out and again, through the years Richard kept in contact to provide updated market analysis and walked me through several options (listing pros and cons) of a potential sale both with current renters and trying to sell outright. All that to say, fast forward to 2018. We had an abrupt end to a lease with our renters and our family was not in a position to afford two mortgages or visit the property as I was due to have a baby within weeks. We were on the phone with Richard and within 24 hours, he had a plan to get our house on the market. He did everything - and I mean EVERYTHING from doing the final walkthrough/collecting renters keys, to coordinating contractors for work, to multiple open houses until our house was sold! He did everything he could to represent us as a valued client and in my opinion, went above and beyond what I expected any real estate agent to do. He is firm, direct, and is the world's fastest responder to any call or message. Our house was listed and had two contracts within a couple of weeks. Thanks to Richard and our families prayers, we sold our house at a perfect time and got rid of a out of towner's rental headache. He has a great group of contractors he works with on a regular basis and was able to postpone payment for work completed (which was negotiated in sales contract) until closing. This was also a tremendous help. Thank you so much Richard for your commitment to getting our house sold and relieving a big stress during a special time in our lives. You earned every penny!
We had a short sale that was a very long process due to the mortgage company we were dealing with. Richard was very persistent with the mortgage company to keep things moving along. He responded quickly to emails/texts. He helped get the house ready to sell and checked on it through out the whole process since we live out of state. He was really great to work with and we highly recommend him!
I actually met Richard when I was a home inspector (pest control) about thirty years ago. Since having first hand knowledge of how Richard conducts his real-estate business, I personally than decided to use Richard when I sold my home. I have worked with a huge number of real-estate professional's and I consider Richard to be one of the finest realtor's in the Albuquerque Metro Area! Richard is all about hard work and making the sales experience very positive!
