What others say is what really matters...

The Real Estate industry has some agents who make claims about anything and everything. I could talk to you 'til I'm blue in the face to try and impress you, but I'm not going to do that.  I, like most people, pay more attention when others say about the experiences they've had with people, good, bad, or otherwise. I hope that what others say about me will speak volumes as to the kind of person I am. After reading some of my clients thoughts I hope that you will conclude that you should contact me so we can chat and see if I'm the right person to help you with your Real Estate needs.

I consider the satisfaction of my clients to be my greatest achievement in business, and sincerely take pride in what they have to say about me.

Contact me today - I'd love to earn your trust and add you to this growing list!


 

My husband and I were on the home search this past October and were recommended by someone to talk to Rick. Besides the perfect, beautiful home we purchased, having Rick as our realtor was our best decision in the process. We are so thankful for the countless hours and homes Rick had to endure with us, and especially for his honest, caring, and non pushy character. All of the above helped us find with confidence exactly what we were looking for! Thanks again Rick, your name has been and definitely will be passed on to any friends and family looking to buy or sell.

You have done an excellent job helping us buy and sell. Very professional and caring. Great attention to detail and willing to go the extra mile. And back to caring, we know that you really do care about us. We are looking forward to the next chapter in our lives and making this move. If anyone we know is moving, we will for sure send them your way.
 
Thank you very much!

Why Pick Rick?
 
Why pick Rick VanPapeveld as your realtor?  - We can think of a host of reasons to do so!

 

With Rick as our realtor we got professionalism, expertise, friendly service, a wonderful knowledge of the market and the town, as well as Rick's uncanny intuitive ability to dovetail our individual needs and preferences to the house we needed. 

 

We felt that Rick really had our best interests at heart. – Until the moment we unlocked the front door of our new home Rick walked alongside us, guarding and guiding the process. - In short, Rick is a perfect matchmaker. 

 

We will recommend his services to every person who wants to own a home to match their lifestyle, their pocket, and their dreams.  Thank you Rick, we salute you.

We have been in our home eleven months now and we still cannot believe it's actually ours. We are so thankful to Rick for making our first experience an enjoyable one. We say "first" because we definitely wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
 
Throughout the process you were detailed and professional, yet fun to work with. This was the project of our dreams and you treated it as such, with honesty and helpful advice. You promptly returned phone calls, accomodated our schedules, and gave solid information for all of our questions, however crazy they were. We turned to you for your expertise on a number of occasions.
 
We are especially proud when we talk about the enjoyable process we encountered and show off our home. People find it hard to believe that we don't have one negative thing to say about the experience.
 
Gracias,
Patricia and Michael

Since our involvement with you we have experienced excellent cooperation and a seamless process in making our dream a reality. Mike and I would like to thank you for all your help and assistance and would not hesitate in recommending you to friends, family, and colleagues.
 
We wish you well in all your future endeavors, Rick, and again thank you for all your help.

Let me take this opportunity to thank Rick for all his efforts in making our dealings a great experience. As first time home buyers Rick made the experience a true delight. It is needless to say that while apprehensions were at a peak at times and there were several questions which required answers right away, Rick was extremely professional in addressing our concerns. Cheerful as ever, he has gone out of his way to fulfill our requests and has been extremely helpful in every possible way.
 
Exceptional work ethic, integrity, and professionalism define Rick's personality. He has been a pleasure to deal with and we would like to extend our appreciation for his tremendous work effort in providing us with one of the most memorable customer experiences ever.
 
Sincerely,
Gugush and Manu Sarin

We were so pleased with how Rick helped us find our new house. At one point, we were viewing properties in 3 different communities. Rick always accommodated us when we requested to see properties and new listings. He understood what we were looking for in our new house and gave us honest opinions and feedback regarding the prospective properties. We highly recommend Rick to friends and family looking to buy or sell.

We would like to thank Rick and his company for all the assistance and help in the purchase of our dream home. Once we saw the place there was no other one for us. We found Rick a pleasure and very professional to deal with in all aspects of the transaction. Nothing was too much bother including several viewings of the home to show our families. The assistance with the use of a truck during the move made everything go smoother.  We would not hesitate to use the services of your company again nor to recommend you to family or friends in the event they were looking for a realtor.

  
Sincerely,
Rhoda O'Brien and Harold Chandler

I first met Rick at an Open House and was very impressed with his "no pressure" approach.  I was undecided at that time whether I was even going to list my current place, but kept his business card in my wallet.  A while later I was still contemplating the sale of my place, but I contacted Rick anyway and asked if he would mind showing me a few properties so I could get a feel for what was out there before I took the plunge.  He was willing to spend time with me prior to listing and he still had a "no pressure" attitude.

 

When I finally decided to go for it, Rick was there and ready to go.  His efforts helped me get the results I wanted. My place was sold in only 2 weeks and within $2000 of the list price! Not only that, but he also helped me with the purchase of my current home, which I love!

 

Rick is a great communicator and always returned phone calls or emails promptly, or let me know when he wasn't going to be available.  He was always willing to help, and for me that included taking measurements at my new place.  He even brought me some tiles he thought might look good in the kitchen.  His background in construction and interior design is a bonus for anyone who has a hard time "seeing the vision" of a place that might not be up to your current taste!

 

Sorry Rick - now that I've found my place, I don't plan on moving any time soon, but I will certainly recommend you to anyone I hear of who's looking for a Realtor!

 

Thanks again for all your help!  You made the whole process very painless and well worth the decision to move.

 

Jennifer

Rick
 
You made the difference, you definitely did! I can't remember ever having someone work as hard as you did in my best interests. It is most sincerely appreciated. This move would not have been possible without your continuous help. I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart.
 
Karin

Rick. I really appreciated all your hard work and help. You made an important (and sometimes stressful) time of my life easy and worry free. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone. I wish you and your family all the best! Thanks again.
