He will be the only realtor we will work with in any future. In fact if all goes according to plan he will get a townhouse listing from us. Thank you Richard.

Rich Gerber is a true professional. He goes above and beyond for his clients. He walked me through both the home buying process and my first selling experience. Rich guided me through the current real estate market to help me sell my home quickly and with a generous profit. I will continue to share how wonderful Rich is to work with to family and friends. He is the best!

I have been fortunate to have Rich Gerber involved in every real estate transaction for the last 20 years. He is a full time professional and it shows. He tells you what you need to know to successfully sell (and purchase) your home. This is stark contrast from the real estate sales people who tell you what you want to hear so you sign with them. He listens to you and helps you determine your true needs. He is patient and never makes you feel like you are wasting his time. I could go on and on. Simply put, if you want a true professional in your corner who will always work in your best interest, contact Rich Gerber

He was knowledgeable about the area which was very helpful. Great understanding of the market and what appeals to buyers. Very professional and responsive. He offered suggestions that resulted in the sale of my home in a couple of days.

Rich was so great to work with while searching for our first home. He was honest, very informative, and responded within hours (if that). Rich was a recommendation from my brother so I will be recommending him to anyone I know that’s looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks so much Rich!!

Rich was so awesome helping us find our first home! The market has been crazy this year, but he helped us navigate through it and we found the perfect home! I am in the restaurant industry and my hours are often quite difficult to work with, but Rich always found a way to make it work so we could go check out listings! He was super responsive and had such a great demeanor and you could tell he actually cared about what we wanted and what was going to make us happy! I will be recommending him to everyone!

We have used Rich for both buying and selling multiple homes over the last 10 years. His expertise, local knowledge and calm demeanor have been a much value-added benefit to what can be an emotional decision-making process. We would highly recommend Rich for anyone looking for a partner in the real estate process.

Rich helped my husband and I find our first home. It was a process with ups and downs as the housing market is going quickly. Rich was always so encouraging and helpful throughout the whole process. He was always able to answer all our questions and concerns. We will definitely be using him again in the future and I highly recommend him!

We Highly Recommend Rich Gerber!

My family has counted on Rich’s experience and expertise in over 8 transactions (both buy and sell side) for over 10 years. Rich is professional, personable, and most importantly, patient! I couldn’t give a higher recommendation.

Rich Gerber is a real estate professional who will provide honest advice and follow through to the end with the sale or purchase of your home. We have known of Rich for many years having lived in Schaumburg and frequently seeing his name on for sale signs and receiving real estate information in the mail. When it came time to sell our home, we interviewed a few real estate agents, including Rich. In the end, we believed Rich’s sale plan was the best. He provided a professional home staging consultant who came to our home and gave us ideas and advice on presenting our home to potential buyers. He also provided a professional photographer to take photos of our home for online presentations. The photos were amazing. Once our home was listed, we had a signed contract in two days. Rich was very responsive to our telephone calls and text messages. He contacted us frequently advising us of the progress of the sale. He made the process as stress free as possible. We would recommend Rich Gerber to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. Unfortunately, we could not us Rich’s services for the purchase of our new home because we moved out of Illinois.

Rich was excellent he knew exactly where to have us look for houses. He went out of his way make our house hunting experience smooth and fun, with only a few questions he took our information and showed us exactly where we wanted to live and found us a great home. I would highly recommend Rich for anyone who is looking for a new home he will make the process as easy and stress free.

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.

Lynnette P.

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.

Al & Ellie V.

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.

Steve & Mary Q.

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.

Way back in 2006 Rich helped us to buy our first home where we were very happy. So when it was time to find a new home, we used Rich again in 2017 to find a new home within a very small area. He was patient and never pushed us to expand our search. It took time for our perfect home to pop up, but when it did we were under contract within two days of it listing and our house was on the market within a week. Our house proceeded to sell in 2 days as well. Rich provided us with great people to help stage and photograph our house. Everything moved along smoothly and we couldn’t be happier!

Tim & Mari-Lynn B.

We used Rich to sell our home as well as help us find our new home. It was a very pleasurable experience working with Rich. He is very professional and knowledgeable. We had a contract on our existing home in one week. We will definitely recommend Rich to all our friends and family.

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.

Karen J.

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!

Brian & Beth H.
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.

Jerry & Karen C.
Sold a Single Family home in Schaumburg.
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 W.

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.

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.

Richard was very thorough, dependable and knowledgeable in helping us find our house. He has great resources and was great at educating us through the process especially as first time homeowners.

Bo H.

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.

Gerardo & Colleen P.

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.

Matt & Julie S.

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!

Dan & Ashley S.
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.

Martin & Geneva B.

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.

Stephen & Maribess K.
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.

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.

Bill & Evelyn K.

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.

Jennifer D.

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.
