Richard Bassford's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Richard Bassford

    • Rich sold our house in 5 days and above asking price! We were pleasantly surprised and thankful for the quick sale, and we know it was due to his expertise and negotiation skills. Additionally, his associate, Michelle Rottach, was incredibly helpful in our search for our new house. Her patience, advice, and expertise was critical to helping us find a forever home that we love. I highly recommend their team to anyone looking to buy or sell!

      - D. Ramos
    • We found ourselves in a sticky situation, already under contract with a buyer, and then there was a horrible weather event that could have destroyed the sale. Rich was there to hold all the pieces together, and did so much work on all our parts to make sure the deal stayed together. I dont think we would have sold without him. Rich is a national treasure!

      - Diane and Steve
    • My house was listed and sold in under a week and the process was easy. Richs assistant Stormy was amazing and was always quick to respond to any of my questions. They took care of everything for me.
