"We had just arrived in Disneyland for a long planned family vacation when I got a call from Rich Bassin. He had been meeting with prospective buyers for a house we were building to sell, and they wanted to make an offer. Because of Rich’s relationship with the buyer’s agent and his knowledge of the market, he was able to negotiate the sale of this home long before it was completed at a price and terms that made our vacation at the ‘happiest place on earth’ even happier. This is typical of the kind of service Rich has provided us during the more than 10 years he’s been our agent. He has guided us through the purchase and sale of multiple properties and has been an essential member of our team. His familiarity with the Atherton market and the real estate community here has been a huge asset to us, and I’d highly recommend him to anyone looking for the best agent to represent their interests."
