    • 09/29/2016 - Bob is one of the easiest real estate agents I have ever worked with. He has a solid knowledge of the market and process of buying and selling a home. The staging of the property was amazing and made it look warm and welcoming. He was responsive to our questions and kept us up to date on steps we needed to take to complete the sale. I highly recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling a home.

    • 07/26/2016 -I have loved working with Bob and have already used him twice over the last 10 years. He has strong knowledge of the neighborhood and market. As well as a great coach and educator on the home buying process. He would be always candid and upfront on understanding various aspects of the home and what could be the positives and not so great aspects of the home. He was extremely patient as we took our time to work through the buying process. Overall a great friend and person to work with.

    • 09/30/2016 - When a hot property came back on the market in Issaquah, I knew I needed to see it the next day. I contacted Bob Richards, due to his long-standing reputation as an expect in the area, and the next day, I was touring the property. He advised me on my offer and assisted me with several requests from my mortgage lender. I was extremely pleased with the entire experience!

    • 09/12/2016 - Loved working with Bob. He was open and honest about our situation and the challenges we would face in this market. He walked us through every step of selling our townhome and buying a home. We sold our townhome for more than we thought possible and bought a home in our dream neighborhood for under what we were prepared to pay. We couldn't be happier with Bob.

    • 11/19/2016 - Bob exceeded our expectations - he understood and was sensitive to our objectives - his considerable experience made a smooth sale and closing transaction

    • 01/11/2017 - We have completed several transactions with Bob, both buying and selling homes. His knowledge and experience have helped make all our transactions successful, even the ones with many challenging obstacles. Bob helped us find the perfect home, and helped sell homes even in more difficult times to sell. He has great follow through and always made sure we had all the information we needed.

    • 09/30/2017 - Perhaps our experience was a little different from many home sales in that it was done long distance. As soon as we listed our home with Bob we moved to Northern Cal - so, our selling experience was done via text, electronic messaging, Authentisign, and many, many phone calls. Bob was absolutely excellent in insuring our complete understanding of "just where we were in the selling / closing process" through one of these electronic formats. Felt like we were next door. Bob also ensured that communication process through our escrow company, CW Title. Through his communication he made a potential crooked road straight & relatively easy to follow. Thank You !!!!!

    • 12/11/2016 - Bob was indispensable for us. We had moved to a different state and Bob helped with not only the sales part, but also took care of thoughtful fixes to the house to maximize its value. He helped with getting the fixes done through his contractors at a very reasonable price and the house looked and sold for way more. The staging of our house was amazing and that definitely helped. Would definitely recommend Bob for any one.

    • 03/11/2017 - Bob Richards produces! We have watched Bob working in the Klahanie area over the last 20 years and knew that when the time came that he would be our realtor when we sold our house. As a matter of fact, we bought our house from him. When we contacted Bob six months ago about the possibility of selling our house, he was very patient, providing thoughtful guidance and without any pressure to get on with it. Two months ago, when we finally determined that the time was right, he immediately outlined in detail what we should and shouldnt do to prepare out house for sale in a short time. We wisely followed his advice. With the aid of a good market and his guidance we quickly sold the house. Our bottom line advice is to sign up to sell your house with Bob Richards and follow his advice to the letter. You cant go wrong!

    • 04/08/2017 - We're very glad that we found Bob to help us find our home. The other agents my wife and I interviewed didn't want to meet in person but said that they'll see us at the first home we saw or lacked attention to detail. When I called Bob, he invested the time to meet with us in person and understand our needs and educate us about the market. Over the two months we worked with Bob, he was always honest, very responsive and professional. The best thing we liked is that Bob stopped us from making offers on homes that don't fit our needs or may have difficulty selling in a down market. When the home we eventually bought hit the market, Bob gave us a good idea of what price level we should make an offer at. He also negotiated well when the selling team threw a few surprises and had some tough asks. We went with Steve and Michelle at Penrith home loans for our financing needs. I'd love to work with Bob and the financing team for our future needs.

    • 05/09/2017 - We have never had to sell a home before, Bob made the process seamless. We had our home sold in 4 days. Bob was exceptionally professional and thorough. He kept us informed always of every step along the way, what to expect, and was always on top of things. Bob is knowledgeable and experienced. His market analysis, negotiation skills, and real estate advice was exceptional. The house was well staged and I firmly believe this was a deal breaker for the sale of our home. We would definitely use him as our agent again and would highly recommend him to others. Bob rocked our sale!

    • 06/06/2017 - From start to finish, Bob Richards is the consummate professional. I have never had a home sale go so smoothly. He took full responsibility for making sure every step of the process was anticipated and continued to flow towards a flawless completion. And he stepped in many times with just the right resolution to what could have been a deal breaker. "What will it take to sell your home for top dollar, and quickly?" Bob had all the answers and delivered 100% - more like 1000% - whether he provided recommendations and advice, or stepped in personally to handle himself. If it needed doing, he made sure it was done, and done well. He helped us prepare for the sale, with excellent advice as to what to do, and not to do. He provided recommendations for first-rate contractors - he is extremely well-connected. He told us the truth about what was needed in a very professional and courteous manner. We followed his spot-on recommendation for a pre-inspection. He even stepped in and supervised the needed prep-work, when we couldn't be present at the house (we live thousands of miles away and had to leave before everything was done). When we didn't have the time to handle donations of some larger items, he took charge and did it for us. He even stepped in and personally blew off the roof, and re-pressure-washed the driveway for best curb appeal when he determined that was necessary. That is way above and beyond the call of duty. That is Bob. He and his wife, Judi, did a beautiful job staging the home. It looked amazing and so inviting! And this was all included in his standard real estate fee - no extra charge. He is THE expert who had a well-thought out strategy for putting our home on the market, which was tried and true due to his extensive experience. And it was a quick sale, and he knew exactly how to price our house, how to schedule the open houses / showings, and how to encourage and receive the multiple offers with ease. He knew the potential pitfalls and deal breakers and was proactive in managing them so they became non-issues. All parties were well served by his excellent management of the sales process. I would choose Bob Richards, again and again. I cannot say enough about his professionalism, his personable and friendly approach.

    • 06/20/2017 - Bob was really easy to work with. He worked really well with the listing agent to secure our dream home. Our favorite thing about Bob is that he is a great resource to have when touring a property. He was able to point out flaws and positives about each place that we might have overlooked as new home buyers. That continued even after we purchased the home. On our final walkthrough, he still was pointing out tips for upkeep and maintenance of our home. You're making an excellent decision if you go with Bob Richards.

    • 07/09/2017 - Very positive experience-! Bob is always willing to answer questions or get information requested, quick response if you text him or email him. He is honest and trust worthy.

    • 07/19/2017 - Bob had the expertise to find the right buyer for our property quickly. He is a good listener, has local expertise, and did his research with the city on new land restrictions which determined how our property would be best marketed.

    • 08/02/2017 - Bob did a great job selling our house and also helping us find our new home. Everything went smoothly from the very beginning even though our house sat on the market for longer than expected. Bob is good with communications and response time is fast.

    • 08/02/2017 - Selling your house can be a bit of a scary thing. For those of that don't do this very often there are a lot of unknowns and uncertainties. I interviewed several agents and it was pretty obvious that Bob was head and shoulders above the others. Here are a few things that Bob nailed: - my home was priced perfectly to maximize the sell price - it was immaculately staged - he masterfully negotiated the sell price and conditions of the sale - he was very responsive and proactive throughout the process including after the sale which is when you can expect service to drop off.

      - Rich Leggett
    • 08/08/2017 - We continue to be very satisfied with Bob's help with buying and selling homes. We just closed on the sale of a very unusual house which took some special attention to figure out the best approach for marketing. Bob's long experience and close attention to details really did pay off for us. We were amazed at the tasteful way he staged the house without additional cost over his commission. This was the fourth time we have relied on his service, and it is unlikely to be the last.

    • 06/15/2017 - As a first time home seller Bob made the process very understandable, nearly effortless, and overall a wonderful experience! His experience and expertise is unmatched in the area. I highly recommend Bob Richards for any real estate need you may have.

      - Sami O
    • 08/25/2017 - Our entire selling process went very smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a better real estate professional than Bob. We highly recommend Bob for any real estate need that you may have.

    • Bob did a outstanding job helping through out the whole process of selling our house from start to finish. He guided us through preparing the house for market by letting us now what was needed to be done for us to sell our house quickly and receive the most money possible. Our house was in the market value that was very competitive with lots of options available for home buyers to choose from, by listening to Bob's recommendation on how to present the house and his absolutely amazing staging of the house, our house was able to sell within the first day with a full price offer and close within a month with absolutely no issues resulting in a speedy and problem free sell, other comparable listening's in our area have continued to stay on the market and I honestly believe if they had chose to use Bob as a realtor they would be writing a review similar to mine instead of continuing to hold open houses and adjusting there price trying to attract buyers. Bob was very professional and honest and his years of experience selling real estate is why I am able to write such a outstanding review on the service he provided to me and my family, on this real estate transaction.
