With over 200 Million in home sales you are in good hands when you hire Richard PROFESSIONAL LETTER BELOW 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 Fidelity National Title. 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 Fidelity National Title Escrow Officer/Branch Manager

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Buellton?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Buellton?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Buellton, CA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Buellton?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Buellton?
While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents in Buellton work for 6% of the home price.
