          My wife and I decided to buy an investment home, reached out to Richard who had assisted us in buying our first home. After discussing what we were looking for he was able to find us a great place and we made an offer. Within weeks we were moving towards closing. He was fast and always on top of everything. Richard has never failed us, he is very reliable. I can definitely recommend his service to anyone that is currently looking for a home.

              We met Richard when we called to inquire about a condo for sale while visiting Grover Beach. He scheduled an appointment with us that afternoon to show us the condo and Spent the next several hours showing us other condos in the neighborhood. I am a real estate paralegal and I was very impressed by his knowledge and thorough explanation of the Real estate contract and various documents we were signing He provided useful information about the area since we’re not Local. He kept in touch constantly, answered questions, followed up and took care of each concern we had throughout the entire transaction We will recommend Richard to everyone we know.

                      Richard has helped us with many homes and commercial properties and has been top notch in every aspect

                    • Richard helped me buy a home

                        It was a great experience working with Richard. Would highly recommend him.

                      • To whom it may concern, Richard Gonzalez is a goal-oriented person who strives to achieve his objectives. He is the consummate professional. I am an Escrow Officer, Branch Manager at a Title Company. I have been in the Title Industry for over 35 years. I have always admired Richard's approach to business. He is a "go getter" that has only the best interest of his clients. I recently had a conversation with a seller who was selling a property she had lived in for many years. (Richard was the Selling Agent.) She shared with me that she had had several offers but chose Richard's offer in large part due to Richard conveying to her how much his client would love and care for the home. Richard is an intelligent, humble and engaging person. He is an effective communicator who is capable of interacting with people from diverse backgrounds. Additionally, I have found him to be honest, conscientious, organized, personal, dependable and loyal. Richard is a team player and an excellent problem solver. He never backs away from adversity but hits it head on in order to address and solve any issues that may arise. He is the kind of person that will complete a task rather than put it off to tomorrow. Richard has an excellent reputation and is highly regarded in the community. He is a person of impeccable character, integrity, and work ethic. I highly recommend him without hesitation
