About Us: Professional, Experienced, and Qualified Realtors

                                                                        

Since 2008, I have been providing full-service, residential real estate services for good folks just like you!

SO WHY GO WITH RICH........

Someone You Can Trust
I've protected and served our great country and good citizens for over 20 years as an Air Force officer with core values of service before self, integrity, and excellence in all I do. This is my belief system, it's the basis of everything I do for people.

Servant's Heart
I'm proud of our client-first mentality. When it comes time to buying or selling your home, it's not about me--it's all about you and helping you make one of the biggest decisions of your life a well-informed, successful, enjoyable, and easy one. That's why I'm here.

Contract Expert
With my expertise, I'll guide you through the entire process—whether buying or selling. First time buyer? No problem, I can help de-mystify the process for you. Distressed property? I can help!

Faster, Better, Smarter.
 
I have numerous professional certifications in addition to both an undergraduate and master's degrees. You want the best and fastest CPU in your computer, why not the equivalent in your Realtor representing your interests. So take a moment to think about who you want to represent and work for you!

Local Expert
I’ve lived in different parts of Arizona over 11 years now, most recently in Fountain Hills and Scottsdale, and also have experience in Mesa and Tucson. Hire someone that lives in Arizona and loves it like you do!

IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT
BUYING YOUR HOME.......

Free MLS Home Search
If you are looking to buy a home, this is the place where you can search the MLS for free, in real-time, and see accurate lists of homes for sale!

Custom Tailored Search Lists
Contact me and I can then provide you extremely tailored searches matched to your needs that are automatically sent to your inbox when new properties come on the market. Don’t lose time poking around web-site lists that are out-dated and inaccurate; and don’t be in second place!

Experienced and Certified Buyer’s Agent
Shop shop shop ‘till you drop on the internet, and then we'll go look at the "final answers" for homes that you qualify for, in person, and see how the house "feels" and "fits you."

IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT
 SELLING YOUR HOME.......

Internet: Where 90% of people start their search
It’s also where over a third (37%) of people eventually find their homes to buy! When selling your home, if you want national exposure. List with me as I have partnered with major real estate websites in the nation, where your home may get national, front-page exposure.

Video and Technology
People think in pictures, not words. I use technology that lets buyers tour your home virtually, instantly viewing videos of your home on their smart phones and tablets, when they stop in front of your
home--without ever leaving their car!

Internet and Marketing Plan
The concept is to determine the right market price for your home, and then showcase your home to the maximum audience possible. Contact me to see how it's done!

WHAT CREDENTIALS
DOES RICH HAVE?

I'm not only an agent, but also a fully licensed Broker! I am GRI-designated, and CDPE certified, and am also an Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR). This is all in addition to my Bachelor's and Master's degree, and 20 years of leadership and project management skills developed as an officer in the US Air Force.  I am currently working on my HAFA, and e-PRO certification, and like the best successful professionals, am in a continual state of learning skills to keep "sharpening the sword" to provide more services to people just like you!

SO WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS
MEAN TO YOU?

The Graduate, Realtor Institute (GRI) designation means I have advanced training above and beyond the average Realtor, with a skill and knowledge base to guide sellers and buyers through a complete, smooth transaction. Only about one in five Realtors has earned this designation!

As a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), I have in-depth and current knowledge focusing on Arizona's evolving short sale and REO landscape. I can help those looking to sell or buy distressed properties, discuss risks, and help de-mystify this now more-common transaction. In some of our communities, over 70% of transactions are distressed properties. If your agent is not a CDPE, you may be spinning some wheels and wasting your time.

As an Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR), I met the academic and experience criteria to act as a fiduciary to fully represent buyers' and investors' interests. Remember this: I represent YOU! If you are selling your property, imagine the advantage you have gaining a buyer's perspective with an Accredited Buyers Representative!

I'm very proud of my At Home With Diversity (AHWD) certificate, because this is what America is all about. The dream of home ownership is and shall be available to everyone! I'm a firm believer and practitioner in fair housing and glad that anything else is against the law. I believe Diversity is what makes America great, and diversity is not only welcome but vigorously protected in my transactions.

As a active member of the Arizona Real Estate Investors Association (AZREIA) -- one of the best real estate investor associations in the nation--I bring an investor's perspective to VALUE properties, whether for buying for yourself, or as an investment. We continually meet to see market trends and events that influence community price points. Would you like a market snapshot or trend-line for one of our many communities? I can provide that for you!

Finally, and not least, as a retired military officer, I've spent 20 years serving our great nation and our neighbors under the guiding core values of service before self, integrity, and excellence in all I do. This is how I grew up professionally, and what I continue to do today for my clients, and those I work together with. I grew many successful teams and managed multi-million dollar projects and I can put all of this service and experience to work for you!

To put things in perspective, I have numerous professional designations (GRI, CDPE, ABR, and AHWD) and leadership and project management experience. I've spent my whole life working with and talking with people to achieve success. Often these days in Arizona, the real estate transactions are complex--needing much academic firepower, great communication skills, and the maturity and experience in managing difficult projects. So when you're looking to "hire" an agent and a team, take pause and think about who and what skill-set you want to represent you in this most important and increasingly complex transaction.

Simply put, I love Arizona. I think the people who live here are great, the weather is great, and now there is also great value and opportunity in buying homes here. And if your real estate is in distress, I should be able to help you get out from under it and help your family get a fresh start.

I've lived in different parts of Arizona for over 11 years--the first time in 1991! And although technology and my access to several sources of information allow me to provide information about several neighborhoods in the valley, my personal focus is working in the north east valley, Scottsdale and Fountain Hills, which I absolutely love, and where Takae and I live, work, and play.

Call me now to let me know how I can personally HELP YOU TODAY!

Most sincerely,

Richard Harrington
