Rick McClew's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Rick McClew

    • I could not have asked for a better agent to guide me through the process of selling my house. Rick McClew is an excellent agent and his experience gives his clients an advantage that not every agent can provide. Every time I needed a resource he had a name and phone number at the ready. He is not only knowledgeable about the process, he encourages and supports his clients through the complex process of selling a house. I would recommend Rick to anyone looking to buy or sell a house

      - Karen Kunz Rehwinkel
    • Rick was the listing agent for a home my husband and I were looking at. We had an agent in mind, but we were house hunting on our own. Once Rick showed us the home we liked, we decided to use him as our agent since we liked him so much. He ended up working as a dual agent on the home he showed us.

      - Christine Redhage
    • I have worked with Rick on over ten properties both buying and selling. Rick is a professional that works hard and is honest and I readily trust him to handle this area of my business. I wholeheartedly recommend Rick for all your buying and selling needs.Thanks Rick!

      - Micah Vaninger
    • I wish I could give Rick 10 stars on everything because he really went above and beyond as my realtor. He was there through every step of the process and was able to work through all of the inspections, repairs, and negotiations that had to be done to get the house sold. Rick did a fabulous job of hiring a professional photographer to take pictures of my home, and I'm convinced that is why I had an offer in less than 48 hours after it went on the market. Rick McClew is a fantastic real estate agent, and he genuinely cares about helping you meet your goals. You can't go wrong with choosing Rick.

      - Ryan & Ali Darnall
    • Beyond Rick's experience and expertise, he is extraordinarily level-headed, patient, and client-focused ... exactly what you want from an agent in what will typically be one of the most important transactions you'll ever make. Rick truly earned our highest recommendation.

      - joseph keillor
    • I highly recommend Rick McClew. He is a true professional who supported our family through every step of the process of selling our home. He is knowledgeable, responsive, and a great communicator. Rick showed our home to more potential buyers in 10 days than a former realtor had in 3 months. I wish we had found Rick earlier!

      - Jan Mourning
    • We had been working with our regular agent but she wouldn't go past a certain area so she told us to call a different coldwell office. We did and we got the best agent. Rick knew the area, was able to handle all the issues that came up on the house. He stayed calm when I was freaking out which kept calmed me down. He was never high pressure

      - Barry & Shelley Burnette
    • Rick helped me to buy my first home and was a pleasure to work with! As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions, and Rick patiently explained the whole process to me. I also had very specific ideas of what I wanted in a house, and he was very patient and always gave me his honest opinion about a property. I'd recommend him to anyone!

      - Megan Lipson
    • I had two other agents under contract to sell my home. Neither agent brought a single offer. Rick had one in less than a month and I ultimately sold it to the person who made the offer.

      - James Wallen
    • Rick helped me coordinate final repairs and the sale of my home after I transferred out of state with my job. I would not have had such good results without his help.

      - Ginny Monti
    • Thanks to my lender, my most recent home purchase could've been a horrendous experience. Thanks to my realtor, it was mostly painless. Rick McClew intervened on my behalf to save the day multiple times in my 30-day closing period. When the home purchase became overwhelmed by daily drama created by the lender, Rick remained clam, professional, and immediately responsive. I can't imagine having gone through this process without him. This was my first home purchase where my dad wasn't beside me every step of the way, but Rick proved a suitable substitute, and I felt just as protected and watched over by him during this process as I would've had Dad been there. I couldn't recommend him more highly.

      - Shelli Allen
    • I have bought homes and condos in the past. I have NEVER had an easier experience.Rick had everything running smoothly and closed fast. Would recommend him highly.

      - Nick & Diane Spinos
    • I would strongly recommend Rick for any real estate transaction in the St. Louis area. He is very responsive, familiar with market values/conditions and very personable. Also, well adept at getting all steps within the sales process completed in a timely manner.

      - Greg Feigl
    • Rick had been working with us and other family members of mine over the past 7 years. He has always been extremely professional and trustworthy. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needed a knowledgeable realtor.

      - Andrew & Virginia Wilson
    • A previous agent didn't work out for us, but we had already looked a bunch with them. So when we switch to Rick by recommendations from friends and family it should have been an easy process for Rick. We did find our house the first time out looking with Rick, but when we started having issues with getting a loan, Rick's experience made all the difference. As first time home buyers we would have been lost, but Rick was patient and answered all of our questions throughout the entire process. If Rick did not have the answer he tracked it down for us quickly or got us in touch with some one who did know the answer. Plain and simple, with out Rick's help we might not have gotten our current house.-Thanks Again Rick

      - Craig & Julie Leslie
    • Rick McClew is a superb real estate agent. We moved to Fenton, MO, from out of state. Rick was always easy to contact and easy to communicate with prior to our house-hunting trip. He was well prepared for house hunting with time limitations, knew the area, stayed within our budget, and listened to our reactions and concerns about the properties we saw. He gave great advice/guidance during each step of the process and answered all questions thoroughly. We feel he went above and beyond our expectations as he lined up a contractor to do some work before we moved in, and he coordinated with our father-in-law for handing over the keys. We could not have had a better buying experience. Thanks Rick!

      - Matt & Rebecca Byrne
    • Rick was the wonderful. Rick helped us sell our house so we could buy a new one. He was available for everything we needed. He helped us find a painter as we were new to the area. Just to keep this in perspective, he helped us buy this house. For many reasons, this house did not work out for us. He then helped us to buy our current home. So...he helped us with 3 transactions. I will not have any other agent except Rick. If I am asked, I will tell them to call Rick.

      - Doug & DeAnn Mankell
    • Rick is a Family oriented, straight forward person and will work hard for you and your family to get the best price for your house and work through any issues from when the process of selling and buying a new home begins all the way to the end. I have used Rick several times to sell and purchase a home for my Family. he is always professional and work hard every day of the week to make sure you are getting what you want and getting answers to any questions that you may have. You will not be disappointed.

      - Ken & Sandie Ball
    • Rick was extremely helpful and proactive in helping me find my home. He was always available to me and helped with any questions or concerns I had. He is also very friendly and knowledgeable makes the whole process a lot less stressful for everyone involved.

      - Katie Schopp
    • Rick was definitely on our side and not forcing his agenda or time frame on us. When we told him we wanted to hold our price high, he was fine with it, when we told him we needed to change course to sell the house, he came to us with a price and immediately communicated that new price to buyers and agents who had viewed the home as well as marketing the home to potential new buyers.

      - Wallace Gustafson
    • Rick helped us through a very difficult sale working with the seller and buyer to resolve inspection, code, and sale timing issues. Would recommend to any seller interested in having agent who possesses local area knowledgeable and ability to follow through.

      - Patrick Kielbasa
    • Rick is a dream agent! He not only put up with all of my "first-time home buyer" questions, but also spent countless hours sending me available houses at the drop of a hat (and not to mention, he was always available at any time, day or night). Rick made the process of buying a foreclosed home painless and quick. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an experienced and knowledgeable realtor!

      - Maggie Rainey
    • This agent was very proactive during the process and communicated with me during the viewing of properties, his honesty about properties were greatly appreicated.

      - Sorrell Harvey
    • Rick is a great agent that worked with me to sell my home. He understood my situation and helped me through it and kept my stress level stay low. Rick also returned all my calls promptly and stayed on top of everything.

      - joe koehler
    • Rick was very involved in the process from start to finish. This is the 3rd home I sold or purchased with Rick. He has excellent market knowledge and is willing to go the extra mile to help with the sale process.

      - Kevin Berkbigler
    • Our home was not you normal home to sale. We were in the process of putting in a septic system and we were delayed due to the unusual amount of rain . The home sold in the first 24 hours on the market. Rick never panicked and was there with the right answer each time we started to get worried. He was professional and new the right thing to say and do to put us a ease. We would recommend him to anyone to work with!

      - Robert and Marian Muether
    • RICK MCLEW IS AN PROFFESIONAL AGENT, THAT KNOWS REAL ESTATE BUSINESS AND DOES HIS JOB VERY WELL. IT WAS A PLEASURE WORKING WITH HIM TO SELL MY HOUSE. LOOKING FORWARD TO HELP ME BUY HOUSE. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMED RICK MCLEW TO ANYBODY THAT IS BUYING OR SELLING A HOUSE.

      - Amir Smajic
    • Rick was a pleasure to work with. We were new to the area and having a hard time finding the type of property we wanted. Rick made the process much easier and less stressful than it could have been. He spent many hours showing us homes, was always prompt in answering emails/calls, and found all the information we wanted. Once when we saw a property we liked in IL, Rick referred us to a nice agent in IL. We ended up buying in MO, and Rick was there for every step of the process. He was very helpful and efficient in resolving any issues that came up, and took care of a lot of things for us when we were out of town. Thank you Rick for making everything go smoothly, and we highly recommend you!

      - Subhadra Gunawardana
    • Rick was phenomenal in every aspect. Works hard, highly knowledgeable, very responsive and will be a strong advocate for your interests. His record speaks for itself. Can't imagine there's a better agent out there.

      - Chris & Megen Campbell
    • Rick helped us in many ways, but his over all knowlege of real estateand can do attitude is his great skill. We had several problems at the closing and without Ric's help would not be in our home now.

      - Gary & Patty Pemberton
    • Rick was the best realtor a young couple could ask for. He went with all of our suggestions for what we wanted in a house and still tried to get us as close to our families as possible. The process was very easy and he made sure we got what we wanted. We plan on using Rick again when we upgrade houses in a few years and have recommended him to friends and family.

      - Tim & Liz Filla
    • I'm so grateful that a friend referred us to use Rick McClew to help us purchase our first home. He made us feel incredibly comfortable through every step of the process! As inexperienced home buyers we had a lot of questions and Rick was sure to explain everything in terms we could understand and never made us feel like our constant questions were a burden. We were living out of state at the time and were looking to purchase a home in St. Louis. He was patient with our schedule and responsive in giving his insights to homes we saw listed online while we were out of town. He took our opinions seriously and really listened to what we said we wanted in our first house. Throughout the house hunting process he learned more about our taste and honed in the homes that really fit our style in the area we wanted to live. By the end of the process he knew what we wanted before we even did! Rick's flexibility, honesty and kindness made purchasing our first home so simple. We couldn't be happier to be living back in St. Louis and we have Rick to thank for finding our perfect home

      - Mike & Tori Freeman
    • Rick was fantastic. I did not have an agent and was hesitant in using the seller's agent at first for obvious reasons. However, Rick was a true professional in representing both sides. He was very honest and fair through the whole process. He was very responsive and organized which was key to me in a very stressful decision. I highly recommend him

      - Brad Christ
    • Great job, professional, and big knowledge of the surrounding area. I was extremely impressed when I could only give a days notice and traveling in from out of town, that Rick was able to clear his schedule and spend an entire day looking at housed with me.

      - Lonnie Emmons
    • I can't imagine another realtor handling our home sale any better than Rick did. Rick made the process so easy and handled many of the details that I expected to have to deal with. Rick was available and communicative throughout the sale process. This was especially important given the unexpected challenges that presented itself during the sale. Rick professionally and calmly dealt with each of these obstacles and helped us work through them. The result was a quick sale and minimization of what would have been an even more stressful transaction. I highly recommend Rick, he's a terrific realtor and individual.

      - David Rey
    • Rick was a great resource for my wife and I during our home buying experience. Rick showed us several homes in the Harter Farms subdivision, and he continued to be attentive to our requests for walk-throughs during the contract process. Rick was also extremely helpful with providing advice and guidance to assist my wife and I with selling our own home. Although acting in the Seller's agent capacity, Rick checked in with us often to ensure our needs were being met, and he was a good liaison between sellers and buyers. Rick also provided a fantastic lender recommendation, who closed us quickly. Rick truly was a one-stop-shop for our home buying experience! And my wife and I appreciate the good work he did to help us buy our forever home.

      - Jason & Michele Devereaux
    • Rick was amazing from beginning to end. As a first time home buyer, Rick was very patient with me and thoroughly explained the whole process to me. He quickly and effectively answered all of my many questions and took care of problems as they arose. I had a long list of things I was looking for in a house and Rick was able to help me find a house that met all of my criteria. I would highly recommend Rick and will never buy or sell a house without him!

      - Katie Youngmeyer
    • Rick was really great to work with. He is very experienced and knowledgeable, and took the time to be thorough in the sale of my house which made me feel at ease since I had already moved out of state. It was a learning experience for sure but Rick was always a patient, positive, and caring professional who took care of all the details! I would recommend him to anyone who needs an agent. He is awesome!

      - Angie Basgall
    • Working with Rick has been a wonderful experience. When we began the steps to sell our home, Rick was there to answer all of our questions and settle our nerves. We knew right away that he was the realtor for us. His quick response and knowledge of the housing market has been so very helpful and appreciated! Rick really spends time knowing his clients and doing what is in their best interest! We look forward to continue working with Rick to find our dream home!

      - Glenn & Elizabeth Cotton
    • We enjoyed working with Rick. He was consistently available, was able to answer questions, and would communicate feedback from potential buyers. He knows the real estate market, was honest in the process, and created a good relationship with our family! He will get the job done!!!

      - Bethany Mortensen
    • Rick was very helpful early in the process, even 6 months before I even put the house on the market. He told me what needed to be done AND what DIDN'T need to be done to get the house ready to sell. Rick was easy to work with, even from 850 miles away (I had moved).

      - James Lawson
    • I know some times we think that real estate agents are just about their commission, but Rick is a true gem. Rick is not just any agent, he cares about what is best for the client, he's knowledgeable, respectful, professional. If you are looking for someone to help you find the home, someone that will go above and beyond, someone that will care about you not just try to make a sale, you are looking for Rick McClew.

      - Susanna Moose
    • Rick helped us buy our first house and everything went smoothly. He was very attentive without being pushy. As first time buyers he sat us down as we went though what we wanted, our budget, and preferred locations. We typically emailed/text houses we liked on zillow or his MLS site to him ad he would prepare visits or more information.Rick came to every open house with us. He always let us make our own decisions but when asked he gave his opinion on the house's value and location based on what we original talked about wanting. When we asked for additional information he sent us pricing of similar houses in the area and what he thought was a good offer. He was never pushy and made it clear he was there to help us and not push us in any one direction.When it came time to put in offers Rick took care of all the paperwork quickly and followed up with the seller's agents. He helped us setup the inspections and coordinated with the title company. The final closing and inspections went smoothly with no issues.We would definitely recommend Rick to anyone buying or selling a house. He was a non-pushy yet attentive and detailed when needed/asked real estate professional.

      - Jason & Sarah Beck
    • Rick was very ready to give advice and listened to what we wanted. He is very well respected in the community and his name carries a lot of weight. He walked through our house prior to listing and gave specific examples of what to update and how to show the house, which helped a lot.

      - Stephen & Katie Kempf
    • Rick is great. He knows all the ins and outs of today's current market, and gives a realistic perspective of what your current situation will require. I have worked with him twice in the last 5 years and each time my family and I have been very happy with his work.

      - Ian & Michelle Rainey
    • Rick has been such a great help for the purchase of new home and the sale of our old home. He is always available and ready to answer any questions we have had. He is very knowledgeable and his expertise of the field shines through! Thank you so much Rick! We are so thankful!

      - Mike & Leslie Wyatt
    • This was our third time selling and Rick was by far the best agent we ever worked with. He also acted as out buying agent and found us the perfect house

      - Richard & Heather Weiss
    • Rick was very helpful in purchasing our new home. We are so happy with the service that he provided. We set a record in getting the loan processed with our lender.

      - Hayley Barnes
    • As first-time homebuyers both my wife and I were pleasantly surprised while working with Rick McClew. Up front I will confess that I was nave to the whole process whether attempting to grasp industry terminology, comprehending the local housing market trends in our preferred neighborhoods, or simply understanding how the incremental process of purchasing a home is supposed to work. From the very beginning Rick put our collective concerns to rest. He gives his honest opinions in both an informative and respectful manner where not only did he help us find the perfect home but was able to identify those properties with the greatest financial potential. Between placing a bid on our dream home to being handed the keys I personally felt like Rick had my back every step of the way. He was always knowledgeable about what was going on at any given time throughout the closing process so I was confident that he would never allow me to miss any deadlines. Surprisingly he even caught an error in the closing documents that no one else saw. Processed as a VA loan he correctly identified an administrative fee that I was not liable for as a veteran and as such I was able to save several hundred dollars.Looking back upon our first home buying experience, Rick made it as anxiety-free as possible. Simply put I cant recommend him or the team at Gundaker Coldwell Banker enough!

      - Joshua & Nicole Stephenson
    • I had a great experience with Rick and highly recommend him. Rick was very responsive, organized, and thorough. Rick was always on top of any issue that came up.
