REVIEWS- FIVE STAR
"Rick is a superstar real estate agent! He is very personable, and his knowledge, responsiveness, attention to detail, and overall tenacity resulted in a successful and all around fun house hunting experience. We gave Rick several areas in wine country that we wanted to explore. He met us each time with a complete itinerary, positive energy, and patience. He was always around to address our questions and concerns which brought our stress level down during the process. He also focuses on developing meaningful relationships with listing agents to ensure all parties are satisfied. We’re grateful for our time with Rick, and we're loving our new home in wine country. We highly recommend Rick to anyone and everyone looking for a new home!"

"Rick Smith is the best realtor my wife and I have ever worked with, a real superstar. He is professional and provided guidance the entire time he worked on our transactions. He not only expedited the sale of our home but simultaneously secured the purchase of a new property. He is extremely knowledgeable about the current market and makes the purchase and sale of a home a stress free experience. He is truly a full service realtor who has no problem getting his hands dirty and contributing some elbow grease when the need arises. He went beyond the call of duty on more than one occasion and for that we are extremely grateful. He is truly committed to making the buying and selling experience “a walk in the park”. I can’t express how grateful and lucky we were to have discovered him at the right time. Not only did he help us secure our dream home but he saved us money doing it. I would highly recommend him to be your “go-to” realtor. You won’t be disappointed."

"We were referred to Rick by a friend of ours who has used him to buy/sell multiple previous homes, and oh boy are we glad we found him! Rick was able to navigate us through the selling process during the height of COVID-19 and did an excellent job of keeping us informed the whole time. He is always accessible via call/text when we had any questions or wanted to run any idea by him. He made suggestions to us about small things we could do to help improve the selling value of our home (which worked). He kept on top of the rapidly changing market at the time giving us daily info on homes selling and coming for sale. He kept in constant contact with the realtors of perspective buyers and also sellers of homes nearby, and gave us honest guidance based on his knowledge. I honestly cant say enough good things about Rick! We are recommending him to our friends and family, and will be using him for any future homes we buy or sell."

"The best realtor we've ever dealt with...and we haven't even bought a house yet. Rick has been extremely patient with us.
Rick really listens to what you want. He doesn't bother you unless he feels it's the right fit. Rick is extremely knowledgeable, he thinks of things you don't even think of; Rick knows his stuff and then some.
We were recommended to Rick by our friends who highly regarded his expertise, knowledge and helpfulness; he's a win-win all the way around.
If we ever buy another house, we will go back to Rick again and again and again. Thank you Rick for your expertise, thoughtfulness & patience."

"Rick is an outstanding agent. He spent his own time helping to ensure all items in our Condo were in great shape. He found the cleaners and painters and also did work himself. We received a great offer for our property. I would highly recommend Rick."

"We are very blessed to have Rick as our agent when we bought our first home. Rick is truly knowledgeable and patient when we have questions or concerns. He is very caring and even our kids love him so much. The most important thing is that we found a house that we truly enjoy and we have no one to thank but Rick!"

Bought a Townhouse home in 2021 in Morgan Hill, CA.
"Rick is an experienced, smart, and truly honest realtor who went above and beyond to help us buy our first home! He was extremely patient to explain every single step to let us understand the whole process in a really short time. He is great in scheduling lots of tours in just one day so that the buyers could see as many houses as they can in a short time. He has excellent communication skills which will help making good relationships with clients and other realtors (e.g., making lots of follow-up calls). You don't get bored around him since he is funny and friendly and makes lots of jokes. I was very impressed by his work and will stay in touch with him for future transactions! Rick is a pro, don't hesitate to hire him!"

Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in San Jose, CA.
"Rick was incredibly helpful, efficient, knowledgeable, and personable throughout my buying process. He was constantly communicating with so I knew the most up-to-date information. As a first time buyer, Rick did a fantastic job of explaining the different steps and terminology of purchasing a home. I could tell he cared about helping me find the perfect home for myself. A few months after closing on my new home, I had an issue with a home warranty and Rick stepped in to help. This went above and beyond his responsibilities as my realtor. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to buy in the Bay Area!"

I %100 recommend working with him."

"You couldn't ask for a better real estate experience than what Rick and Tia did for us. During Covid-19, Rick made the impossible possible. We were able to find a home, have a contingent offer accepted, AND sell our condo (in one day) with Rick. Buying and selling is stressful, but working with Rick made everything so easy. His calm, reassuring, detailed, and super responsive nature kept us sane and made our home dreams come true."

"Rick is an expert at what he does. He will educate you on current market. Bay Area is always hot market. We had been shopping for house for over a year. We changed agent and went with Rick. Within two week, we are in contract. It doesn't end here, he helped us with reviewing a lot of docs during the contingency period. You don't have to take my word for it. Do your H.W. He will provide a lot of information. Understanding Rick's strategy is the key in buying a new home. "

"Rick is an excellent broker and I can’t say enough good things about him and his team. He has helped us for many years with many transactions on both the financing side and helping us to sell our home and buy a new home. The hustle on our most recent transaction was extraordinary. We expected top dollar for our house and needed it quickly. We asked him to get our house on the market asap. They provided us with suggestions on how to show our house in the best light, made a plan and then they personally took care of every detail from scheduling cleaning, staging, helping to move out furniture, take pictures off walls preparing everything needed to be listed on the MLS and open house showing. They had it on the market in 2 weeks and it looked spectacular when they had finished…I almost did not want to sell. They were even personally in the garden planting plants, spreading chips and refreshing the curb appeal. The end result – sold after the first weekend and generated the highest sale price our neighborhood has ever seen. We got a great offer and it was over list, closed quickly and they even negotiated a free rent back for us to have a little extra time. Rick is a smart strategic thinker who is easy to work with and goes the extra mile. He works hard and always makes himself available. These guys know what they are doing and I recommend Rick's team to anyone looking for a good broker to represent them."
Bought and sold a Single Family home in Santa Cruz, CA.
"We found Rick through a referral from my mortgage lender. He was super knowledgeable about the area. Our listing was for a Tri-plex, and the market can be a little tricky there. He did a lot of homework, and he invited us on field trips to see other potential comps so we felt comfortable with his advice. We were able to sell off market for over asking. Unfortunately, our first deal fell through due to some silly loophole that the City found after 3 prospective build meetings. Fortunately, he was able to quickly get another 3 off market deals, also over asking and with a better close than the first accepted offer. Tia was amazing at organizing all of the details, keeping everyone on task, and giving great advice on home improvements. Both of them got sleeves up in our messy backyard and helped redesign the yard. In the meantime, he helped my brother find a place to buy as well that would close right after the sale. We had a great time looking for houses, getting to know each other, and joking around. My brother taught him some new lingo - we were giving prospective houses the “randy Jackson - hey dawg, that’s gonna be a no”. We got a great deal on a new condo. Rick went to bat for us in both situations. He was a huge advocate for us and worked all hours of the day and night to get us even more than we knew we needed. I look forward to our next purchase!! "

"I would never buy a home with anyone other than Rick! He helped me sell my condo for above list price & purchase an amazing home before I needed to be out of my condo. Rick is THE best. I will recommend him to anyone who is in need of a realtor. "
