As a professional realtor my goal is to give the highest level of care and help to every one of my clients throughout the entire transaction. Explaining every detail and communicating all information so my buyers and sellers always know what is taking place with their home sale.

As a longtime Eastside resident, I am passionate about selling real estate and continue to implement new technologies to ensure my clients the very best chance of obtaining their goals as they buy and sell.

I will do everything in my power to make sure at the end of our transaction you feel happy to refer me to your friends and family.

Please call or email with any questions you may have.

Thank you,

Bob Richards

What Bob's Clients Have To Say:

"Bob was recommended to us with the highest praise, and he earned it from us too. Bob helped us buy our house in this competitive Eastside seller's market. Besides being knowledgeable about neighborhoods and real estate, which we would expect, we learned that Bob is also extremely knowledgable about: home maintenance and the cost of various repairs, local vendors, and even zoning laws. Bob educated us on the potential issues with a home close to power lines that could be upgraded to nuisances in the future. It seems like Bob knows everything about everything! He went above and beyond even after our transaction closed. Bob also told us about his care in selling homes from staging to offers. We wish we could work with him again, but we're too happy with our new property for the foreseeable future!." Joey M.

Real Estate Market Watch 2023 was a year of Ups and Downs when it came to the real estate market. However, after a year full of record-high interest rates and home prices, experts say there are signs of improvement for the housing market in 2024. In fact, in December, the average mortgage rates dropped below 7% for the first time since August and after an 8% peak in October. Many economists are predicting that rates might drop even further in 2024, perhaps as low as 6.1% - 6.5%, which is advantageous for both Buyer & Seller in that this should increase demand and a support higher sales price. We are moving into a market where Buyers have become more critical of a home’s condition and where every detail matters. Therefore, homes need to be competitively prepared prior to coming onto the market. If you are thinking of selling in the near future, the time to act is now.

"This was the second time I’ve worked with Bob - the first time was 8 years ago to sell my house in Klahanie, and this time was to find a new house in an overheated real estate market. Both times were great experiences - Bob was extremely patient with us and knows more about houses and how they’re constructed than anyone we know. We highly recommend working with him!"

The Lefkows
Seller

"Bob Richards is very knowledgeable. We knew when it was time to sell our house, that Bob would be our "go to" guy. Bob made the process straightforward. He came to our first meeting with comprehensive market research to help us understand and feel good about our house listing. From there provided great consultation on how to prepare for our listing. He made the process as easy as possible for us."

L. Wallace
Seller

"Bob did a wonderful job and went above and beyond in selling my house for the best price! He took care of everything, always available, always on top of things! Look no further - Bob is the best! Highly recommended!"

V. Voloshin
Buyer & Seller

"Bob was amazing throughout the whole process of selling our home. He really understands the local market. He knows the current trends in home sales (listing/offering prices) as well as what buyers are currently looking for when buying homes. His advice from how to prepare the house for selling, including reducing clutter and staging to the strategy for pricing, was invaluable. His communication and follow up was excellent, always very prompt. I just can't say enough about how impressed we are with Bob and how extremely happy we are that we used Bob to sell our house."

J. Melton
Seller

"We purchased our home with Bob Richards help 26 years ago and came back to him when we were ready to sell and move on to our next adventure. Bob helped get us multiple written offers and we sold our house for $176,000 over list price. Judy did a great job staging our home and Bob continued to follow up with us, making for a seamless process. We would highly recommend Bob and his team."
