I would give Richard Realty Groups my highest praise. Our Realtor, Dennis Watkins was knowledgeable and thorough throughout the transaction. His diplomacy was crucial in a couple of instances, and due to his ability to get along with people he solved some issues that could have caused problems. Broker Bill Richard is a person of the highest integrity, and in this business that is paramount.
I would recommend this company to anyone looking for an honest and reputable agency.
We have known Chantalle since 2010 when we bought our first home. 5 years later I had to sell and buy a home within a 40 day window and she got it done. Now we had to sell our second home since I got stationed overseas and again she did an amazing job selling my home in just 3 days. She not only made the process easy for us bit she was able to acquire bids $20k above our asking price. Knowing and working with her for so long has been an absolute pleasure. Hopefully once my tour is over I can come back to California and one of the first things we’re going to do is contact Chantalle and look for our next home.
My family and I where coming from NC to CA and Chantalle started emailing and calling me with anything and everything there was and what I needed to know before I even knew what I wanted or needed to know. Very driven she found what I wanted and took care of everything to get me the house I wanted plus more and I will definitely recommend and use her again if I get the chance. I had the house inspected, checked on, painted, fixed all before I even moved to the state. So nice, so knowledgeable and I can definitely think of her as not just my Realtor but my friend. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
A friend recommended Michael to me and I do not hesitate to recommend him to others. He has an exemplary work ethic even responding promptly to my questions whilst he was on vacation abroad.
My situation was additionally complicated by the fact that I was looking for a house in another state. Michael listened closely to my requirements and found me a perfect retirement home.
I have been so impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail that I have trusted him to manage the rental of the property until I am ready to retire.
Terry knows exactly how to meet expectation: professional, thorough, knowledgeable and proactive. After taking our listing, she canvased the neighborhood and found an immediate opportunity. The next day, we had a full price offer. Smooth and seemless, she made the transaction one of the best we’ve ever known. Thank you, Terry, we couldn’t have asked for more!
We were referred to Carlyn by our realtor in L.A. because Carlyn was one of the top sellers in the “Oceanas”, where we intended to buy. Carlyn endured over 7 months searching, communicating and touring with us; we even considered making an offer on a home until Carlyn wisely advised us not to purchase until we were fully “ready,” as we still had many loose ends to tie up in L.A. This proved prudent because we ended up waiting to find the home which was more perfect for us than we had originally envisioned! Carlyn jumped on this home once it came on the market and walked us through the process step by step, patiently and faithfully. She is an excellently responsive realtor, which is a deciding factor for me, personally, as I have worked with realtors who do not reply for hours, if not days!
Carlyn has become a trusted friend and was very resourceful in supplying us with contacts of reliable contractors and service techs in this area to work with, as we had little familiarity with Oceanside businesses. Carlyn’s integrity is strong as well; and if she doesn’t know something, she will research it until she finds out! She has a keen awareness of the area, which we appreciated, and after knowing us only a short while, she was able to discern our best fit for a home.
We are thankful to Carlyn for her tremendous patience and caring kindness, as well as her overseeing of the closing process and final wrap up of our property purchase. We love our new Oceana home and would not have given it a second glance if not for Carlyn!
I want to personally thank Jeanne Redlinger for handling the sale of my Mother’s home during a very difficult time for my family. She is extremely professional, well organized and kept us informed throughout the sale process. Since I live out of state and Mother’s house needed some TLC, Jeanne worked with a local flooring company to select and install new carpet and hardwood flooring. She also worked with a local plumber and electrician to facilitate required repairs. Thank you Jeanne for going out of your way to do this! We highly recommend her to anyone needing a professional, first-class real estate agent!
I will highly recommend Jeanne as agent. He helped me find my home with a lot of hard work and passion.
I can’t say enough about Jeanne and her expertise in real estate.
I’ve known Jeanne for many years as a dear and loyal friend. And, after my mom passed away, I knew that Jeanne was the only realtor that I could turn to with absolute faith and confidence regarding the subsequent marketing and sale of my mom’s home. Not only was Jeanne sensitive to the loss of my mom, but she also stayed by my side through a very emotional time.
Her pre-marketing was flawless and her net-working resulted in two, all cash and over asking price, offers within the first day Jeanne listed my mom’s home in the MLS system. The buyer asked for a very quick 7 day close of escrow! She guided me through the entire transaction with skill and expertise. Jeanne stayed on top of the multitude of paper-work that followed and made sure that everything was handled and completed within the very short contractual time frame. She was organized, extremely knowledgeable, thorough, dedicated, patient, honest and kind throughout the entire transaction. I felt blessed to have her on, and by, my side!
After the sale of my mom’s home, Jeanne also represented me as a buyer. Again, she was thorough, and also relentless, in her search for property that closely fit my expressed requirements. Jeanne was on top of the market and immediately called me when a $10,000 reduction in price posted on a property that she had previously shown me. We presented an offer, it was accepted and I now live in this wonderful home that Jeanne found for me.
I am forever grateful for all of Jeanne’s hard work and sincere caring and amazed at the depth of her real estate knowledge. I can recommend her, without any hesitation, to all who seek the best-of-the-best to handle their every real estate need.
Jeanne Redlinger did an outstanding job in selling our house. She’s very well organized and an excellent communicator – both critical in the sale of property. Jeanne took time to understand our goals, and she provided valuable feedback to help us formulate an effective selling strategy. Because of her long experience in the San Diego/North County market area, she has a huge net of real estate contacts which – in our case – proved to be more valuable than any advertisements. Throughout the entire process, Jeanne was steady, professional, confident, creative, ethical and cheerful. We highly recommend her to anyone needing a first-class real estate agent – either as a buyer or a seller!
Daylene helped my brother and I purchase a condo in a 55+ community for our mother, who is moving to San Diego from Colorado Springs. She was infinitely patient answering all my mom’s questions by e-mail and phone. She was also compassionate and very understanding of how difficult it is for an older person to move across country into a new home sight unseen. Daylene worked closely with all of us to successfully close escrow within only three weeks, which was extraordinary in that we also had to work with a tenant living in the property at the time of sale. Daylene is a very professional agent and we would definitely use her services again if needed.
Moving is an emotional experience whether you are buying or selling, and can mix with uncertainty and confusion with excitement if you are doing both. I was both selling a family home and downsizing to a smaller home in another city. I was fortunate enough to find a Realtor, Megan Gonzalez, who was not only savvy about the real estate market, but also proactive and kind. When I felt consumed about the sale of my house, she expertly maneuvered me through every aspect of buying my new home. I had an impossible wish list and hoped to find a place with maybe half of my desires, Megan found me a place with every one of items on my wish list and then through in a few extras to my delight. I loved working with Megan. She is skilled, knowledgeable, detailed and thorough. Megan is excellent at negotiations and understands real estate law and practices. She has a long list of resources and can help with inspections, repairs, and decorating when the right home is found. Megan was much more than a Realtor, she was a guide through unfamiliar territory, and friend when I needed a calm opinion, and patient during those times when I needed to better understand the process. I consider Megan a treasure and now a friend.
I can’t beging to tell you how great our experience was with Michael. After retiring my father felt it was time for him to sell the family home. We contacted Mike and he got it done! He always answered any questions we had and was just a phone call away! Thank you Michael for making this a smooth transition for our family.
Mike Levy was very easy to work with in the selling of our house. In our absence, he handled several of the issues that came up, dealt with our renters, provided constant updates, kept us informed of all options, and offered us his advice. He was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to other potential sellers.
When we were first time home buyers, we were looking for someone that we could trust and someone that would help us walk through learning all of the ins and outs of buying a new home. We found Bill Richard through a mutual friend and he was just what we needed. Since that first purchase, we moved out of state and into different parts of California. When we came back to San Diego and decided it was time to buy a home again, we knew that we wanted Bill to be our agent again. We are grateful for his insight and help in finding our family the home that is right for us! Thank you!
When I started looking to buy a house in Carlsbad, CA, I had been to about 75 open houses over several months and had yet to connect to a local realtor. I came into contact with Bill Richard at an open house during my open house tours in the North County area.
When I met Bill there was an instant connection.
I am very selective and was not in a hurry to purchase a home. Bill understood my requirements and working together over several months we narrowed down the search to a few neighborhoods.
Bill also recommended working with Kelly Kline of One Trust Home Loans to get pre-qualified. I sold my home to a friend and Kelly took care of that loan and it was an easy transaction. As was my loan through Kelly.
The right home eventually arrived on the market and Bill went above and beyond during the entire process. I had moved out of the area and was not able to be part of the inspection and other things that needed to be handled. Bill scheduled and was present during those needed processes. He called, texted and emailed me regularly keeping me updated on the transaction.
Working with Bill and his team felt like I was with friends. The purchase of my home in Carlsbad went very smooth.
I have already recommended Bill and Kelly to others, and will continue to do so in the future.
“Selling a property from a long distance seemed a daunting task, especially one that needed updating. I feel very fortunate to have found Carlyn Yenger who helped me sort out the numerous details of getting a condo ready to be sold. Carlyn is in tune with what buyers are looking for and was a valuable resource for ideas and local contacts of businesses for updating the condo for today’s real estate market. She was always easily available by phone or through emails. We were able to complete the sale without having to travel to the property. I must say that Carlyn went the extra mile as our Realtor.”
I cannot say enough about our experience with Bill Richard. He was the consummate professional who helped us through a very complicated transaction – purchasing a bank-owned property. He operated by the motto of going “above and beyond” in assisting us through every step of the process. However, what struck me the most regarding Bill was his integrity. He displayed this attribute time and time again and in the short time he worked with us, I felt comfortable trusting him, knowing he was truly looking out for our best interests. I would unequivocally recommended him and use him again for future real estate transactions.
“Simply amazing!!!” Without the help and extreme professionalism of Carlyn Yenger as our agent we could not have sold my Mother’s home in Oceanside as quickly as we did. No matter what time of the day or night, Carlyn was always there to help us. The result of her time and talent was fabulous! Carlyn provides world class customer service to all her clients. My husband and I can say without any reservation that if you want knowledgeable, professional, efficient, courteous and ever friendly service, Carlyn should be your primary and only choice! She helped to make our Oceanside, CA experience a memorable one.
Bill & Trish S.
I was very fortunate to have you and your team represent me in the sale of my mom’s Oceana condo in Oceanside, CA.
You were on top of things from the get-go. I had nothing but total confidence in you and your team because of your professionalism, knowledge and diligence. You provided a service that went above and beyond all of my expectations.
Without reservation, I can say that you and your team are the best agent’s that I have ever worked with.
