Since 1983 I have had the pleasure of working with numerous clients, and I have received many letters from happy and satisfied sellers. I believe I am known for vigorous and successful marketing, outstanding client service, attention to detail, and happy conclusions— as these comments from ten former sellers indicate. [To protect their privacy, client names are not shown here. However, a full portfolio— via the U.S. Postal Service— is available upon request.]
"From the time we put the house on the market until the time of settlement, we always knew you had our best interests in mind. Your attention to detail and frequent telephone calls providing us with progress reports were very reassuring."
"From our initial meeting to express our interest in listing our home with him, both my wife and I felt very confident that his methods would sell our house…. One word I would use to describe Dick is thorough. I never had to wonder what was going on…. At a time when a number of issues have to be dealt with, it was very comforting to know that we had such a competent agent working for us."
"Your expertise and knowledge as an Arlington realtor was invaluable. We were overwhelmed by your responsiveness and care in ensuring that the sale was consummated in a timely and efficient manner. We have not sold real estate for well over 20 years and could not imagine that it would be this 'painless.' You were a real pleasure to work with and we will certainly recommend you to any of our friends and colleagues in the Northern Virginia area."
"Your marketing and presentation was commendable… Everything that you stated in your prelisting interview was carried out."
"I am very pleased with the outcome of your marketing, which resulted in a sale price exceeding the asking price by a considerable amount…. Your attention to detail and numerous suggestions for enhancing the salability of my condo were instrumental in my receiving the price that I did. Your pleasant demeanor made it easy to do business with you. I will certainly recommend your services to anyone I become aware of in the area who may be interested in selling his or her home or condominium."
"Thank you very much for your excellent work in selling our condo at 1301 N. Courthouse Road, Arlington. VA. We trusted you completely, and you didn't fail us at any level at any time. We are confident that we received a very good price for the sale of our condominium and are satisfied with the entire process from listing to showing to screening and evaluating offers, to selecting the best offer under all conditions, and then handling all of the paperwork and decisions that affected us. It was a pleasure doing business with you. We are very pleased with your professionalism and courtesy and won't hesitate for one moment to recommend you and your services…."
"You were not the first realtor we interviewed, nor were you the last. But you made the best presentation of yourself and your services and, as the speed of the sale demonstrated clearly, the best analysis of the position of our home in the active-but-daily-fluctuating market. We followed your suggestions about preparing the house for sale and for how it was readied for showing. We accepted your careful analysis in pricing the place. And we were really bowled over by comments we received (from neighbors and from friends who visited the house while it was being shown) about the effectiveness of several of the elements of your marketing strategy. Finally, we are especially appreciative of the diligence and good humor with which you led us through this complex experience which, though everyday to you, was only the second such time in our 55 years together."
"Thank you. Simple words that seldom express the true depth of meaning that they contain. Believe me in this instance they are heartfelt. Without you the sale of our home would have been a much more difficult experience. Probably the most gratifying aspect of the experience was the honesty with which you conducted business. You did what you promised when you promised and it showed a professional competence that was outstanding."
"We have been so pleased with the service you've provided in selling our home in Arlington. Throughout all phases you have been the ultimate professional— making sure that each step was accomplished correctly and in a timely manner. Your sound guidance and constant updates ensured that we made correct and informed decisions. The result was the highest selling price yet for our model of townhouse."
"We appreciated the professional way you worked with us…. You kept us informed and gave us the feeling that our interests were utmost on your agenda. What more can a client ask for?"
