Hello, my name is Rich Bassford and I am a full-time Realtor and team lead for The Bassford Team at my at RE/MAX Concepts. I am licensed in IA and IL. My team consists of 8 full-time agents and 7 full-time assistants so you can rest assured you’ll always be taken care of. I have 21 years of experience that I will put to work for you. During these 21 years, I have closed over 3000 transactions with an average of 22 days on the market. I have been #1 producing residential agent in the Quad Cities for the last 3 years. This translates into me having the in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing expertise, and negotiation skills to get your home sold. I appreciate you taking the time to meet with me and I look forward to working with you. In addition to selling real estate, I enjoy spending time with my 4 children and significant other, going to concerts, fishing, traveling, and riding my jet ski. In 2013 as a long time supporter of Children’s Miracle Network I took my love of jet skiing, combined it with my love of traveling and rode my jet ski from Moline, IL to the Gulf of Mexico, a 1,300 mile, six-day trip to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network from generous donors at home and along the way. Then in 2018 my son, two friends and I took to the waterways again this time traveling from Minneapolis, MN to Mobile, AL, a 1,620 mile, ten-day trip to raise money for the Davenport chapter of the Disabled American Veterans. I look forward to helping you achieve your dreams of home ownership or helping you sell your home. Please check out my reviews on Google and Zillow to see what many other happy customers have to say about me and my team. Rich Bassford

About Amanda

In Real Estate it's all about the details, and I'm obsessed with them. Why? I'd rather set you up for success from the start than have problems show up for you later. It takes experience, honesty, and transparency to avoid mistakes and to do things properly in a business as complex as this one and I refuse to compromise INTEGRITY for anything. According to my clients I'm the best at what I do and will not disappoint! If that means staying up late or missing a soccer game to get your deal closed, I consider it my responsibility to get it done. Selling and buying a home is the biggest transaction you'll make. The impact a real estate transaction has on your life it is far too important to leave to a part time or inexperienced agent. The only thing that counts is making the transaction happen exactly the way you want it. It's all about YOU, your needs, lifestyle, and protecting you. That's why I prefer to spend ample time with you to go through the details so you get where you are going with complete certainty and understanding. I'll discuss with you what to expect and how to prepare for the unexpected each step of the way. My ultimate goal is to get you to that closing table. I look forward to serving you. Call me now to introduce yourself and set up your listing or buying consultation. LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE!

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.

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.
