Richard did a wonderful job in helping us to buy our home. My wife and I are very pleased. Richard worked on our behalf and demonstrated great negotiating skills and excellent customer service. He kept close communication with us and was professional and supportive in his handling of our home-buying adventure. We are so glad we found Richard and would thoroughly recommend him as a Real Estate Agent to prospective buyers.

Words can't express how thankful my family and I are with Tenley, Richard, and Linda. Our loan proved to be a little more complicated than most but they worked tirelessly to make it happen. If you are a first time home buyer it is immensely valuable to have a realtor team with the knowledge and work ethic that the Gonzalez Realty team has. It can very well determine whether your purchase is a success or not. Thank you guys again, we love our new home!!

Richard is an amazing Realtor. There is no doubt in my mind that we would not have been able to get the house we bought without him negotiating for us. We had an extremely difficult seller, yet Richard was always there for us to answer questions and stay on top of the situation, and we asked a ton of questions. He was patient and addressed all of our concerns even answering questions for us while he was on holiday with his family. What we didn’t realize at the time but now know is that he is a super negotiator. He was able to get favorable terms for us while keeping the price of the home much lower than we were expecting. Both my wife and I have dealt with many realtors in the past, but I have never seen a more masterful performance. I still remember Richard calming us during the buy just saying to trust him and assuring that he’s got this. And he came through and with more than we ever could have expected. Perhaps the most amazing part was that he even put a portion of his commission from the sale back into our closing when the seller didn't hold to their end of the deal. Richard personally paid into our closing to ensure we got what we deserved. We still can’t believe he personally did that but are so appreciative that he had. I wish there was more we could do to thank him for everything. We are now living in a beautiful house, the house of our dreams, thanks to him. I would 100% recommend Richard; he is simply an amazing person and glad to say a new friend.

Richard is Amazing! Our home was in need of fixing up. Richard fronted us the money to rehab our home with no interest or fees in order to maximize my profits! After the beautiful rehab that Richard organized and handled in order to appeal to the most buyers we then went to market. We received multiple offers and even though we were at the highest price of recent solds we went even higher. In a nutshell we walked away with 49k more than expected after all fees. Hiring Richard was the best decision we could have ever made for selling our home. There is really no reason to interview any other Realtor when all you need to do is call Richard.

My wife and I can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Richard Gonzalez. He has helped us through our 1st, 2nd, and now our 3rd purchase. He has a great knowledge of the surrounding area and knew exactly what we were looking for. He was very responsive to our needs and was always available when we needed him to be. We would, and will, recommend Richard to anyone in the market to purchase a home. The best part is that we now have a new friend - a friendship that will continue to grow!

★★★★★
I was in the process of purchasing a home with another Realtor, but something didn’t feel right. Felt like I was being rushed and was not the home that I wanted but I was being forced to bid on it because they said “That’s what I qualified for”. That’s when I reached out to Richard. Best move I ever made! He was with me 100 percent of the way. Explained everything to me. Answered all my questions day or night. Did not rush me! And I could say, for a first time buyer I’m very happy with our home and great location. Thanks again Richard! I always recommend Richard to my friends and family. Will also recommend him to the public to reach out to him and see what a great guy he is. He will always go the extra mile for you.

Richard is energetic, enthusiastic, and it is obvious that he loves his job! When we met him, we could see that he was very eager to help sell our home, and he had a wealth of information regarding the process. Most importantly, he was always quick to respond to any questions that we had along the way. If we happen to move back to the Central Coast, we will certainly ask Richard to assist us in buying a home.

As a first time home buyers, my husband and I really don’t know much about the home buying process which made us more anxious.

As an investor it's important to have a reliable, knowledgeable and efficient real estate agent. I have used the services of Richard to buy and sell multiple properties. I am more than happy with him as he is always available for anything that may come up during a transaction. He has gotten me top dollar for my properties and has sold them in record time. He works in a very fast way, he is very responsible and ethical. When dealing with real estate it's important to have a full time agent who gets things done any day at any time. Richard is always going way beyond what other agents typically do for their clients. I strongly recommend Richard for any person who is buying, selling or invests in real estate

Richard was extremely knowledgeable and truly went above and beyond as our realtor. He helped to find a great deal on things like termite repair on the house we sold. He even worked it out for us to move into our new home as a rental while the banks worked out the details of the short sale. I’d say he’s the definition of full service realtor.

We were so fortunate to have found Richard Gonzalez and Guillermo Arceo, when looking to purchase a home. We had trouble working with other realtors in the past, but this team are the absolute best at what they do. As our realtors, they helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. Every time we found a property that we were interested in, they worked remarkably fast to get us a showing. Every time we viewed a new property, Guillermo would perform inspections, looking for any sign of problems to the home and comments on the quality of the home, the appliances, etc. Richard also helped us go through multiple rounds of negotiations to get the price we were comfortable with. In just 2 months, we were able to purchase a home that was perfect for us and we are loving it so far. The best part about working with this team was that Richard and Guillermo were always on our side working to make our house purchase simple and successful as possible. We would definitely recommend them to everyone, friends and family. Thanks again to Richard and Guillermo for being such a pleasure to work with.
