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
