Sold a home in Hanover Park.
Richard was extremely helpful as I went through the process of selling my father’s properties after he passed away. As I live out of town, and needed to have some work done on both properties prior to listing them, Rich’s Concierge listing was extremely helpful in finding already-vetted repair/renovation professionals. His knowledge of and approach to understanding the area and market are second-to-none and his preparation prior to our calls and meetings were very helpful in allowing me to make the right decisions concerning level of work to do to home to not exceed its market value, as well as the correct numbers to list as to minimize time on market. Rich’s care and concern for his clients’ experience are what really set him apart from other agents.

He is absolutely the best!!! We could always count on him for any information we needed. Handled everything very professionally. Always returned calls immediately with answers or advising us regarding progress. With his help and expertise, he made this experience from start to finish very satisfying and easy for us, explaining everything as we progressed. Thanks again Rich. We would highly recommend Rich Gerber.

Rich is a consummate professional. His knowledge of the real estate market, years of experience, and his laid back demeanor made for an extremely smooth transition from selling our home and then buying a new one. He made himself available at our disposal, and went above and beyond for our satisfaction.  Anyone who gets the opportunity to work with Rich will find themselves in good hands. He’s simply the best!

Sold a single family home in Schaumburg.
Our experience with Rich was the best.  After unsuccessfully listing for 6 months with a different agent, we found Rich and our house sold in 5 days!  He was a steady and calming advocate for us throughout the entire selling process.  He also went above and beyond at a moment’s notice on several occasions, including once when we returned home after a few days out of town and buyer’s home inspector accidentally turned off our furnace.  I would confidently recommend Rich for any buyer or seller looking for a consummate real estate professional.

Rich is the best. He guided us through the process and made sure we knew what to expect along the way. His property description in the MLS was spot on and I believe a contributing factor for us having multiple showings and offers. He was there at the beginning and with us through the closing. I would be very comfortable having him list and sell any home I have. I would also recommend him to friends and family.

Richard was wonderful to work with. We were first time home buyers and he guided us all the way through the entire process. Being a first-time home buyer can be easy if you have someone with real experience to guide you. The purchase went smoothly from day one to the closing.

Rich helped maximize the sale price of my home, provided a staging professional that gave me ideas to make my house appeal to buyers and was very knowledgeable about my neighborhood.

Sold a Single Family home in Schaumburg.
After listing our house with another realtor and no results: we decided to list with Rich Gerber. In 60 days the house was under contract and sold. Rich was extremely knowledgeable about the local market. He took time to help us understand the market conditions, address certain areas of the home and list the home at an appropriate price. Since the home was vacant, he always made sure the house was secure after showings which gave us piece of mind. He did an excellent job in negotiating the purchase contract and coordinating the steps required to close on time. Our experience with Rich was outstanding and I highly recommend him.

Sold a Single Family home in Schaumburg.
Rich was a terrific help in the sale of my home, he understood the market and market drivers. We sat down and discussed pricing strategy, he went over a number of alternatives for pricing, and a number of “what if” scenarios. We agreed on most of these items. During negotiations, he gave me informative advice on what to expect, I also used the attorney he recommended, and he was great.

Purchased a Single Family home in Hoffman Estates.
Calling Rich to help us search for a house for our son was one of the smartest decisions we made. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, but he made the whole experience a pleasant one. After two afternoons with him, we had found the house that we wanted and made an offer. Even though there were multiple offers, we were successful due to his guidance.

Working with Rich was nothing short of fantastic. He is extremely professional, and very honest and calm. He helped us sell and buy a home, within a 6 week time period. His level of communication is exceptional. Rich is very knowledgeable about many areas. We absolutely felt like he had our best interests in mind. In addition, all the people he recommended, from the mortgage broker, to the lawyer, to the inspector, were outstanding. We would 100% recommend Rich!

When looking for a real estate agent, you can do no better than having Rich in your corner. Rich is a professional who gets it. His strongest asset as a representative is his genuine thoughtfulness about what is best for you, the customer. He never puts his own gain before that of his customers, and wants to make sure that you truly love the home you choose. Rich will always go to bat for you. He is a fantastic negotiator and will make sure that you are making and receiving the best deal possible. Finally, Rich makes home buying a great experience! We can truly say that we had a lot of fun viewing properties with Rich because he makes the process so enjoyable. If you want a truly positive home buying experience that’s a lot of fun, we recommend you choose Rich Gerber to help guide you through the process!

Rich was the best partner for us to sell our home and purchase our new one. He was very knowledgeable about the area we were looking to buy and this was extremely helpful in narrowing down the type of house that met our needs. He was very professional, but even more personable. He was available for questions and showings when we needed him and was present at both our sale and our buy closings. From beginning to end, he was there to help and make the process go as easy as possible. We highly recommend him to everyone, even our family and friends who may need an agent in the future.

From the first time we had contact with Richard to the closing of our house, he was the ultimate professional. He is very personable, professional, and very knowledgeable about real estate and the neighborhoods that he works in. He went above and beyond what we expected of him to help us show our home and help maintain it (since we had moved out of state already). He kept us updated weekly without fail and supplied us with all the information we needed to make everything go smooth. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, or use him ourselves should the need present itself again.

A “TRUE” gentleman & professional. The needs, and wants of our family, came before anything else to this man. It was a true honor to work with him, and I would NOT say it if it wasn’t the truth. REMAX has a true gem in Rich Gerber. Knows his area and market like the back of his hand.

Leased a Single Family home in Schaumburg.
Rich is a real estate professional that goes above and beyond what his clients expect. He helped me rent a single family house and was very patient dealing with all the phone calls until we received a qualified renter.

Selling a home can be a stressful experience and Rich Gerber made us feel at ease. He provided excellent customer service throughout the entire process of selling our home. He was also very helpful with the closing by providing documents that we needed for the buyers. He went out of his way to make copies and personally drop them off at our house. I would definitely recommend Rich if you are planning to sell your home.

Richard did a very good job for us. He is friendly, accessible and knowledgeable. He has a good feel for pricing and how to negotiate a deal. He guided us on setting a list price and counter offers to arrive at the final target price.

We utilized Rich to sell my Mom’s house. This was during the real estate downturn. We could not have been happier with our decision. Probably the most honest sales person I have ever met. Let me take that back……he isn’t a sales person. He is an advisor. I can’t think of one issue that he neglected. My Mom’s home was sold quickly and efficiently. He priced it right, and had a lot of traffic going through. Other realtors wanted to price it high and hope for the best. He priced it according to the current sales comps. In the end it was sold for exactly what we expected in less than 5 weeks, in a market where homes languished for 6 months to a year. This is the only realtor I recommend.

I am not only highly likely to recommend Rich, I would go so far as to tell people that they would do no better than selecting Rich. I appreciate his approach…businesslike, astuteness about market dynamics, and just, quite simply, a pleasure to work with.

Rich was easy to work with and very accommodating to my schedule. He went above and beyond at looking at multiple properties and spent much time answering questions I had. I recommend working with Rich if you are looking for your next home.
