I met Rick when I "thought" I was in the market to buy a home. He knew I wasn't, but he still took a couple of hours of his time to educate a young, enthusiastic guy about what he needed to do to buy a home. This was in 1991. I remembered him in 1998 when I purchased my first home and he did a fantastic job just as he did when I first met him. Since then he has handled all of my real estate transactions and I would not consider using anyone else. Rick knows his business and he knows it well. He is very patient with the search and can offer objective opinions about every property due to his vast experience. If you need a realtor that works for you and will always have your best interest in mind, you need Rick! He will help you obtain your goal whether selling or purchasing and will always have your best interests in mind. Even years after the sale he is available to answer questions and o…

I have worked with Rick as a business associate for over 2 years now. Rick's knowledge of how to get business done in this challenging economy and his energy in his trade is unmatched. Rick is constantly learning how to help his clients and specifically assisting those who are having problems making payments on their homes and are looking to sell. When Rick isn't maximizing the potential of his clients he spends his time helping his business partners and friends be more successful. I am grateful to have met Rick and consider him a great friend. I would unconditionally recommend Rick to anyone who needs any advice or help with buying or selling Real Estate knowing they will always get the straight answers and the best service.
I am an estate attorney who has used Rick to help executors and trustees sell the decedents’ homes and rental properties. In each case, Rick went above and beyond to minimize cost and delay to the estate and maximize returns. He has a full team of professionals who can fix properties often at no upfront cost and he has the experience to smooth out technical issues that surely would have killed the sale if a less savvy realtor was in charge. Rick knows the market, and the technicalities of probate sales, and has a great human touch. Oh yeah, and each house sold significantly over the listing price! You really can’t find a better realtor.
Rick is well-prepared and organized every step of the way, proving a wealth of information on comparable sales, trends, and other market data; often going above and beyond what is expected of a typical broker. We have done 7 transactions together, starting with our very first home. He then went on to represent us upgrading to two more homes and buying 2 beach homes. Our business relationship grew into a friendship. We communicated very well and all our negotiations with buyers and sellers were especially fruitful. We were lucky to have met Rick when we did. We highly recommend him to make your dreams come true.
Rick Smith is the best realtor I’ve experienced. He’s personable, hard-working, and extremely knowledgeable. His strong ability to get things done led me to recommend Rick to several people; including my children and their husband's family. To date, he’s sold 5 homes (including mine) and assisted with the purchase of 4 properties for my family and my extended family’s members. Each of these experiences exceeded our expectations. Rick will always be our go-to guy for real estate needs and the one I can recommend with extreme confidence. In my opinion, he is the best in the profession.
Rick Smith has been an invaluable resource to me when a residential home needs to be sold from a trust or estate. His experience and people skills have put the grieving (and sometimes bickering) family members at ease, and his expertise has allowed the properties to be sold quickly, and at the fairest price, the market could demand. He has extensive knowledge of the neighborhoods and market conditions, has made appropriate recommendations on what should be done to the property to position it for sale, and has wisely counseled on the appropriate listing and anticipated selling prices.
Rick, thank you for your patience in making this transaction in Sunnyvale work. I know it wasn’t always easy to work with two brothers who don’t see eye to eye (especially under such unusual conditions), but you made it seem effortless. And your ability to front the costs for the home improvements was really a lifesaver here, especially since the final sales price went so much higher than anticipated. I will definitely be keeping your name on file.
For more than fifteen years, Rick Smith has been my “go-to” realtor! He has earned my respect and confidence for his integrity, experience, knowledge, and skills as a professional. He is always willing to go the extra mile to help a client and get the job done. Rick has even assisted my family members with real estate transactions. Every single time, and there have been many, he has proven my confidence and trust in him is well placed!
I highly recommend Rick Smith. He is wonderful to work with. He helped sell our property very quickly. During the whole process, Rick was there ready to give great advice. His quick response to my questions was always answered. I had no worries and knew everything was going to be taken care of by him. He was there 100% from the start to the end of the sale of the property. Thank you, Rick!
Rick is an extremely professional agent with a wealth of knowledge and experience that delivers the above-asking offers. His network of contacts and marketing drive results. This particular sale was an as-is, probate property with much work needed and Rick still sold in days above asking.
Rick is a true professional, he consistently puts the needs of his clients first. He has built a successful career in the real estate industry based on knowledge, experience, integrity, and the willingness to go the extra mile for those he serves.
Rick was very knowledgeable about the needs and wants of the Bay Area real estate market. He knew exactly what we needed to do to get the most value for our property. I would highly recommend him to anyone selling their home in the San Jose area.
I have worked with Rick for more than ten years on dozens of deals. His knowledge and savvy are second to none. Rick’s ability to navigate complex trust and probate sales had proven to be incredibly valuable for my clients.
Absolutely the realtor when it comes to recommending appropriate updates and securing reasonable costs for a good return on investment. Rick is responsive, and professional and goes above and beyond to help.
