Testimonials

Rick's years of experience, knowledge of real estate, and the market are an asset for his clients

"Rick is an absolute pleasure to work with. Rick's years of experience, knowledge of real estate, and the market are an asset for his clients. Rick's calm demeanor and no-nonsense approach are reassuring and helpful in stressful situations. Rick was very patient and always willing to look at yet another house even though it took us months to find the right one. Despite the many, many houses we looked at, Rick never pressured us to choose one and was willing to draw up as many offers as needed. Rick was always responsive to our questions and on top of all the details. We'd highly recommend Rick to our friends and family."

Very Responsive, Proactive, and Communicated Clearly

"You've heard the saying, "Life happens while you are busy making other plans." Well, I hadn't planned to sell my home of over 21 years, certainly not during a pandemic, when "life happened." I phoned a dear friend who described Mary Petrajanos as the most trustworthy and kind person he knew. Mary introduced me to Rick Christensen, and together they were my dream team. Time was of the essence, and Mary graciously and compassionately navigated me through the process, outlined the steps, answered a myriad of questions, and together with Rick, provided valuable resources to prepare the property for sale in a very timely manner. Rick worked on the listing immediately, and I was very impressed by the quality and quantity of photographs (including aerial views), as well as how quickly he arranged and provided showings, which resulted in a full price offer and very timely closing. Rick was very responsive, proactive, and communicated clearly and directly throughout the selling process. Thank you both so much in the name of quality. Sincerely, Annie S.

Invaluable Realtor

I've had a long professional relationship with Rick, before even thinking about listing my home this spring. He has turned out to be an invaluable realtor for me. Very thoughtful and respectful, as he answered every question and walked me through each aspect of preparation, pricing, listing and selling of my home. I credit him with getting me the best offer available, by working well with each buyer's agent, and talking me through the negotiation process. When a unexpected repair was needed for my home, he came through with a resource that finished the job, in time for closing. I have no problem recommending Rick Christensen as a wonderful, full service realtor!

Made the Process Very Easy

Rick was extremely knowledgeable of the market place and exhibited tremendous professionalism. My situation was challenging since I was an absentee owner. However Rick to ownership of the selling process and made it very easy.

Gold Standard for our Indusrty

"Rick Christensen represents the gold standard for our industry. He communicates clearly, stays ahead of schedule and navigates difficult matters with the steadiest of hands. Above all, he's a great person and a lot of fun to work with. Highly Recommended!"

Quintessential Realtor!

Rick is the quintessential realtor! In August, we met with him and explained our rather quirky property goals. By October, he found the perfect property for us. True to our wishes, it was a quirky property. Every time we encountered a challenge in completing the purchase, Rick had a creative solution. He managed many details and complications--from meeting the well inspector at the property to organizing HVAC work. If we'd had a real estate professional with less expertise, we doubt we'd have this perfect property today. Did I mention that we live nearly 3000 miles away?

Feedback From Other Agents

"What a joy to work with! He and his transaction coordinator, Sara were quick to respond and on top of everything. Transaction went smoothly and all parties were very pleased. Would love to work with Rick again!"

Damn Fine Negotiator

It was a pleasure and a privilege to work with Rick on the purchase of one home and the sale of another this year! He's incredibly competent, hard-working, and fun, and is a damn fine negotiator to boot! Couldn't recommend him more highly. Thanks Rick!!

Highly likely to Recommend

Rick Christensen is a phenomenal real estate broker. He helped me with the purchase of my home and the entire process was seamless. Rick was on top of all aspects of the purchase from putting in the offer, to setting up the home inspection and getting contractor estimates for repairs that were needed on the home. He was able to negotiate a great price including an allowance for the repairs needed for the house. He will take the time to discuss the pros and cons of the decisions that need to be made during your purchase. I would highly recommend working with Rick!

Bought and Sold with Rick

Selling my condo Rick was extremely patient with me and provided answers to all my questions to my satisfaction. He was always proactive in explaining in detail things that we'll have to deal with as the selling process evolved. I'm a newbie at selling. Because of Rick's expertise selling my condo (and making improvements) was pretty stress free. I trust Rick.

Rick also help me purchase my new house--again with the same patience, attention to detail and proactive with advice in helping me buy my first house

Best Agent Ever, will never use anyone else again!

Rick was amazing! We look at over 20 houses and he was very patient and was constantly showing us new houses that had come out on the market that day and would make time to see the house the day it came out so we could be the first ones to make an offer if we were interested.

He had to work with a difficult situation with our house and he went above and beyond his own duties to make sure that everything went smoothly for us. He was there at every appointment and did great with our negotiation. He knew everything to look for in the house and was masterful in his knowledge about how to handle everything from the fireplace, septic tank, plumbing, everything!

I recommend him to all my friends and family and will never use another realtor again, he is simply amazing. The house buying process can be so stressful and Rick helped us make sure it was stress free and an exciting experience. We love our house and we thank Rick for being able to have it!

Above and Beyond!

Rick was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive, always available and went above and beyond in several places on our journey to sell our rental property. Rick was professional, gave GREAT advice on what to fix up and what not to fix up and saved us over $1000 in upgrade advice. He installed smoke alarms after our handyman failed us right before inspection and drove out to the property on many occasions to make sure work had gotten done. Also, in our final negotiations, Rick went way beyond the call of duty to make sure the deal would close. Rick is a trustworthy individual and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home

Wonderful to work with

Rick did an amazing job for us selling our house. He was professional, prepared, responsive and wonderful to work with. We had multiple offers and he explained each one to us to help us decide which to accept. His marketing strategy and guidance through the process was excellent. I would recommend him 100%.

Always Available

Rick helped us find our first home, so we were new to it all, but he helped guide us through what could have been a very stressful process. Rick really enjoyed looking at houses, which made it fun for us too! He was always available when we needed him, early to every meeting, professional, and friendly. I would absolutely recommend him.

Great Negotiating Skills

Rick went above and beyond for us when we were purchasing a property on a 1031 exchange. We were under a time deadline and there were not many properties on the market but he searched for one that would work. He was very patient with us as we wanted to look at many properties to get exactly the right one.
The property that we ended up chosing had been on the market for a while because of numerous problems with it. He arranged for many contractors to give us bids and then helped us negotiate a new price even after the buyer had said it was their final offer.
He was always responding to calls and emails immediately, even when we told him it was not always necessary to.
We are very happy with the property and the decisions that were made.
We would and have recommended Rick to another friend already and will continue to do that.
