"We recently worked with Bob to sell our home and purchase a new one. Bob was incredibly helpful, responsive, and supportive, which put us at ease throughout the entire process. He is an excellent listener, and took extra time to understand our family and our unique needs well in advance of listing  our home for sale. Bob is also very skilled at reading people and assessing situations, which was a tremendous asset as we navigated a highly competitive market. We felt so comfortable working with Bob, and are so happy we put our trust in him to help us find our new home. We had a wonderful experience, and are so grateful for his hard work. Bob is simply the best!"

"The sale of my home was a unique situation because I live out of town. From the initial meeting, Bob was flexible and thoughtful with problem solving ideas about how to manage the listing and get the house ready to sell. Bob and his wife, Judy, went the extra mile to make sure the home was  beautifully staged to showcase its best features. Bob was my advocate in meeting with inspectors and pest control, as well as keeping the yard watered and garbage put out weekly. He responded quickly to my calls, and reached out to me with information as he got it. I never worried about my home during the process. The house sold quickly and the whole process was straightforward. Thank you so much, Bob and Judy!!! "

A. Hildre

Seller

"Bob could not have been a better realtor, especially during this unprecedented time. He was kind, knowledgeable, and professional. He was able to answer every question and knew exactly what to do to ensure that our house sold. If you are considering selling your house, I could not recommend Bob  more! You will be so glad you partnered with him!"

The Knapps

Seller

"Bob Richard's is a knowledgeable realtor and very detail oriented. He made the sale of our home stress free. He was always there to answer any questions we had in detail and made himself available to us. Thank you Bob for all you have done. It was a joy working with you."

"Bob is great! If you are buying or selling in Klahanie and Sammamish, he is right there to answer any questions or concerns and makes the process easy."

The Ritchie Family

Seller

"Bob Richards was our realtor in selling our home. We first reached out to a Bob approximately 8 months ago. He provided us with good insights into the local market and recommendations on what we needed to do to get our house ready to sell in the spring. With Bob’s advice, we obtained a home  inspection and used it to make necessary repairs and upgrades to improve our ability to sell at a reasonable price. When it came time to list, Bob did comprehensive market research to help us determine the right price and then staged our home for us. We listed the house in early March and despite the impact of COVID-19 restrictions on open houses, we were able to sell the house with a week at just under our asking price. We were pleased that the closing completed within 30 days. Bob kept us well-informed through the entire process and offered us great advice. This is the second home Bob has sold for us since we’ve lived in this neighborhood. We wholeheartedly recommend Bob."

The Sorensons

Seller

"I recently worked with Bob for selling my residential property in Klahanie, Sammamish. Bob has deep knowledge of the area around Klahanie and what value does the buyer get with the listed property. Bob provides high quality meticulous staging service that completely elevates touring experience for potential buyers. Bob's knowledge on customer persona who would buy the property and understanding of where the value for money is while preparing house for listing is valuable; it earned him my trust. He works at high standards and insists on highest standards from his client while listing the house which ultimately helps with better results at the end."

A. Sumant

Seller

Bob guided us with knowledge and skill as we worked to restore our parents mid-century modern home. His feedback was invaluable and the staging and photos he provided found us the perfect buyer. This is the second family home we have sold through Bob Richards and we couldn't be happier with our  experience.

The Grette Family

Seller

"I highly recommend Bob Richards as your choice for an agent. Bob listened to my needs and responded to all my questions in a timely manner. I was never pressured given my extended timeline, in fact there was absolutely no pressure at all from initial general discussion to closing. Bob could not  have been more professional throughout the process."

J. Tilley

Seller

This is the third time Bob has served us. He facilitated the purchase of our Sammamish home in 1994, sold our mother's home in North Bend in 2007, and now in 2019 has listed and sold that same Sammamish home where we have lived happily for 25 years. Bob's extensive experience in the market is  invaluable, his integrity is above reproach, and his willingness to go the extra mile in the interest of his client is worthy of applause. Our experience with Bob has always been about him serving our needs and interests first. We love Bob and you will too. We recommend him to any prospective buyer or seller without reservation.

The Riggs Family

Seller

We have worked twice with Bob, and both experiences were outstanding. He found the perfect home for us in 2002 as a young, growing family, then helped us again in 2019 to sell our home as empty nesters (in a tough market, he sold our home at a good price - in one day). In those 17 years I've  never stopped recommending Bob to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home. Why? Because of his tremendous experience and knowledge of real estate and the local market, his professionalism, hard work, honesty, and integrity. Plus he's a very kind and considerate person, willing to listen and answer any questions, anytime. I cannot recommend Bob enough. He is the best there is and I will not hesitate in the future to use his services again. He's that good.

Jim & Karen Ishimaru

Seller

The experience with Bob listing our home was the greatest. A year before we listed he met with us to give his expert advice on preparing our home for sale. We took his advice through the entire process. He is very knowledgeable, professional and kind. We highly recommend Bob and miss him now that  our home has sold.

Bob is so awesome! He has bought and sold many properties for us over the years. He has been in the area all his life and is so knowledgeable about all areas on the Eastside and beyond. I would highly recommend him to anyone. You can't do better than Bob!

M. Garris

Seller

"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

"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 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."

C. Lathrop

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."

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

"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."

Some of the Homes Sold By Bob

"My ex-wife and I used Bob as our agent to sell our home after a divorce. Bob did an excellent job of communicating with both of us throughout the process. The home was sold as the market was still fairly hot but just beginning to show signs of slowing. Bob used his wife to do the staging; the place  looked great. This along with Bob's recommendations for initial asking price followed by a strategic adjustment allowed us to sell our home within two weeks at an excellent price while other homes in the neighborhood didn't fair as well. I then worked with Bob to purchase a townhouse and felt well represented throughout. Bob is easy going but experienced and knowledgeable. I highly recommend working with him whether you're selling or buying."

"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!"

The Petee's

"This is the second property that Bob was selling for us ,and once again Bob and JUDY , two of the hardest working people I have ever met did an excellent job . The thing with this husband and wife team is all I needed to do was just hand over the key , they are practically one stop shop for real  estate sale , they will handle all the necessary steps to prepare for the sale , timely ,with in budget and fair . Sometimes , if Bob can do it he did them with no cost . His knowledge can guide you through the rather complex process safely . Seeing how things could go wrong we feel fortunate to have Bob on our side . I would recommend BOB Richards when it comes to Real estate sale without reservation."

The Lin Family
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

"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!"
