As seasoned and dependable as they come. He was always honest whether in favor or out of favor of his client. He also is well versed in the system, so he's very helpful during negotiations on both ends.
I was referred to Rich by my previous realtor, who had recently retired. It was a somewhat unique situation in that I was looking to sell a vacant rental unit as soon as possible. Living 1,800 miles away from a property you are trying to sell makes you more reliant on your realtor, and Rich never disappointed. He is responsive, thorough and reliable. As his client, I don't believe I ever felt the need to follow up with him on anything. He did exactly what he promised and went the extra mile on more than one occasion. Most importantly, you get a sense that he genuinely cares about his clients, and he wants to make sure that they feel comfortable with the process and that their concerns have been fully addressed.
The perfect realtor! Knows the area very well. Extremely professional. Listens to what is important to you. Gives you space at showings to let you take everything in. Very responsive. Could not have asked for a better experience.
Rich was great from the start and throughout the whole process to the very end! If you are looking for the right agent who will really help you (not just say he will help you) sell your home, then get Rich. He was honest, supportive, and direct from the beginning about what was attractive about the house and what was not, and what needed to be fixed and what did not, because he knows the market, and knows what buyers are looking for. We used Rich's recommendation (Teresa's Special Touch) to stage the house since it was empty, and that made a huge difference. I am convinced that with Rich's approach, diligence, the staging, and Rich's support in the negotiating and contract processes that the house sold in a very short amount of time. If you have ever wondered what a really good real estate agent does for you, Rich Gerber is the answer. I really appreciate everything he did to help sell my home to a family that is now enjoying it! Thanks Rich and Teresa!
We were so lucky to have Rich as our agent. He has excellent knowledge and experience of the process and neighborhood and represented our home well. He is professional and maintained his objectivity throughout the entire process (which only lasted 6 weeks!) He never once tried to pressure us in an action we did not agree with from the pricing to responding to offers. He always offered an objective opinion backed by facts and experience. We had many viewings and several offers as a result of his efforts. His team is also GREAT! The Stager and Photographer were fantastic. The Lawyer he recommended was also great! I have had many family, friends and neighbors ask who I used, and I do not hesitate in recommending Rich.
From the minute Rich walked in our door to talk about listing our house to the day we closed on the sale he couldn’t have been more professional or helpful. He put us in touch with Theresa, she guided us through staging our house and gave us wonderful suggestions. We listed our house during a slow time in the real estate market, our house sold within 30 days. We are grateful to Rich and his team of experts that made selling our house a positive experience.
Rich helped me list and sell my mother’s house 6 years ago, and it was a good experience. So when it was time for us to sell our house, we knew we would contact Rich. Once again, his knowledge and advice made everything simple. He kept us up to date on all aspects, staging, paperwork and what we had to do and when we had to do it. I highly recommend him.
Rich is an extremely dedicated realtor who made the process of selling a home seem easy. He made sure a stager came in to set up our townhouse to the best of our ability that also fit our budget. He was right on track for when the market would heat up in our neighborhood, and we received 4 hours within 30 hours of listing our home. Rich was responsive every step of the way guiding us to make the transition easier than we could have ever imagined. Each week, he sent us an updated checklist of where we were in our selling process and broke down any step we needed assistance with. We highly recommend using Rich Gerber as a realtor if you plan to sell your place. He gets the job done right! Thank you for all of your dedication, professionalism, and ease of sale. When it came to purchasing a house, Rich was very helpful and thorough in his investigation of finding our perfect house. New homes were sent to us almost daily and he set up appointments as soon as we asked. He is always prepared with all facts and figures, and even helped guide us for things to look for in homes, as it was our first single family home. He aggressively got the price down of our new home and aligned our sale and purchased to be on the same day. It was perfect! Thank you for all of your hard work Rich, and to anyone who reads this, please know he is the best to work with.
When selling our town home, Rich got us the best price in the neighborhood. His advice on when to list, the home stager he arranged for, and the listing price made selling our home as quick and painless as can be. We had multiple offers by the next day. When we bought a home, we were impressed by his knowledge of every subdivision in the area, and the ideas he had for each home we saw about what we could improve to make it ours if we purchased it. When we settled on a home, it was like he knew before we did. The most important part was that with his years of experience, he was able to re-assure us that things were going well as we navigated the complexities of buying and selling at the same time. He was always realistic about what could happen, but explained the process, and what the likely possibilities were. As a first-time home buyer, this was critical to me, and my being able to sleep at night during the whole process.
We will always recommend Richard Gerber to anyone that is wanting to sell their home and/or buying a home. Rich is excellent because he is involved in the community and surrounding areas so that he is a wealth of knowledge; very good with evaluating your home and using his resources to set a seller up for success; immediate on his communication throughout the entire process; excellent at making sure that we had up to date information comps in our area to allow us to make top dollar for our sale. Rich is very well respected and we appreciate not only his abilities as a real estate professional but also as a person with high integrity and professionalism.
