What Bob's Clients Say

Here are some of my 135+ Five Star Reviews on Zillow:

 

 

"I would highly recommend Bob Richards as your agent of choice to sell your house. Bottom line: Our house sold in 24 hours and above our asking price! A high-integrity person with deep experience, Bob helped us understand what to expect throughout the entire process and prepared us for all phases  of getting our house ready to sell, marketing to potential buyers, and negotiating and closing the deal. Highly knowledgeable about the Eastside, Bob understood the market dynamics of our area, could predict the type of buyers most interested in our house, and guided us in optimizing our home’s appeal and value. One bonus is that Bob and his delightful wife Judy did the staging for our house, saving us several thousand dollars. When decisions had to be made, Bob’s expertise and calm, steady guidance inspired our confidence and helped us make the right choices. He nimbly and methodically utilized both on-line and traditional resources to professionally market our house. Bob hit this out of the park!"

"Bob has now listed and sold two homes for me in the last 9 years. Bob recently sold my home in about 48 hours. He was very knowledgeable about the comparable market. I feel he helped me get the best price possible without having to wait. Seeing what other homes in my neighborhood have done since,it  is clear Bob knew exactly where to price my home. He kept me informed through the whole process! I would highly recommend him!"

"I've worked with Bob twice and I was very pleased both times. Most recently, for the sale of my home in July. Judy created wonderful staging which showed-off the best features of my home. Her attention to detail was more than I could have hoped for. Bob was a life-saver to me at the last  minute, pitching in to help me in so many different and appreciated ways."

J. Wicks

Seller

"Bob was very active in helping us with our move out of state. He arranged the painter and the flooring since we had already moved. Bob was right in every aspect of pricing, staging, and making this a very pleasant expierence. We recommend any one looking to sell or buy a home to seek Bob’s  expertise and experience."

 

The Goodwins

Seller

"The team of Bob and Judy Richards did a very good job selling our Mother's home. Bob is a veteran agent with a vast knowledge of the local market. We took his advice on what to do to prepare the home for sale, and Judy did a wonderful job staging the home with their large collection of furniture  and accessories, including wall art, lamps, and décor. We were well informed throughout the entire process and Bob knew exactly how the local market process best worked for us. In my opinion, we got top dollar based on current market conditions and the location/condition of the home."

 

The Adams Family

Seller

"Bob is a true pro. He has represented us before and again he did not disappoint. He knows the market, is honest and does not create false hope. He not only helped us sell our house but also, through Windermere’s relocation services help us find a buyer’s broker in a different location. We highly  recommend Bob. "

 

The Whistons

Seller

"We first encountered Bob in February 1986, and he has been our realtor ever since. There is NO one else to use. He is THE BEST!!! The real estate market has changed a great deal since 1986, but with every purchase and sale that Bob has brokered for us has been done with the utmost  professionalism. Bob knows how to maneuver the market whether you are selling or buying. Today's market requires a realtor to be creative in the listing and how to secure a solid buyer. If you are the buyer, Bob evaluates every aspect of the property, and he has a quick eye to determine if it is a good deal or not. He once told me "you can't buy this house because it is on the main road, but you can buy the house next door." Fortunately, we have listened to Bob's sound advice at every turn, and the real estate transactions have turned out to be perfect for our family and changing needs."

The Malcher Family

Seller

"Before our initial conversation ended, Bob thanked us for calling him, we appreciated that polite touch. As Bob walked up to the house he took in many details and it was obvious he knew the neighborhood, the builder and the positive selling points. Bob answered calls and emails quickly and provided great advice when asked. He took time to explain legal details in a manner we understood. Our house sold as quickly as Bob promised and well over listing price. He is a total professional and we highly recommend him."

"We appreciated working with Bob as our real estate agent. We were impressed by his knowledge and integrity in his field. Bob walked us through the process of selling our home and helped us to find our new home! The transaction went smoothly because of Bob's experience."

The Davis Family

Seller

"Perhaps our experience was a little different from many home sales in that it was done long distance. As soon as we listed our home with Bob we moved to Northern Cal - so, our selling experience was done via text, electronic messaging, Authentisign, and many, many phone calls. Bob was absolutely excellent in insuring our complete understanding of "just where we were in the selling / closing process" through one of these electronic formats. Felt like we were next door. Bob also ensured that communication process through our escrow company, CW Title. Through his communication he made a potential crooked road straight & relatively easy to follow. Thank You !!!!!"

C. Scott

Seller

"Our entire selling process went very smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a better real estate professional than Bob.   We highly recommend Bob for any real estate need that you may have."  

M. Huang

Seller

"Very positive experience-! Bob is always willing to answer questions or get information requested, quick response if you text him or email him. He is honest and trustworthy."

L. Albaum

Seller

"We continue to be very satisfied with Bob's help with buying and selling homes. We just closed on the sale of a very unusual house which took some special attention to figure out the best approach for marketing. Bob's long experience and close attention to details really did pay off for us. We  were amazed at the tasteful way he staged the house without additional cost over his commission. This was the fourth time we have relied on his service, and it is unlikely to be the last."

T. Silverman

Seller

"Selling your house can be a bit of a scary thing. For those of that don't do this very often there are a lot of unknowns and uncertainties. I interviewed several agents and it was pretty obvious that Bob was head and shoulders above the others. Here are a few things that Bob nailed: - my home  was priced perfectly to maximize the sell price - it was immaculately staged - he masterfully negotiated the sell price and conditions of the sale - he was very responsive and proactive throughout the process including after the sale which is when you can expect service to drop off. I am really glad Bob represented me."

Local Market Update –October 2018

It appears that balance is slowly returning to the local housing market. Home price growth slowed in September. Inventory continued to climb, but is still far short of the four to six months that indicate a normal market. Homes are staying on the market longer, giving buyers the breathing room to make the right choice for their situation.  With our region’s healthy job growth, and demand still exceeding supply, it’s likely to take some time to move to a fully balanced market.

Read the full Local Market Update, including statistics for the Eastside,Seattle, King County and Snohomish County.

Eastside

Home price increases moderated into the single-digits in September. The median price of a single-family home on the Eastside was up 4 percent from the same time last year to $890,0000 but down from a median price of $935,000 in August. Inventory increased significantly and price drops jumped. While the market is softening, the recent expanded presence of Google and Facebook on the Eastside means demand should stay strong.  In addition, the area’s excellent school system continues to be a large draw for buyers both locally and internationally.
