We met Rick at one of his listed properties. His knowledge of the Victoria Real Estate market, combined with his good-natured personality made us immediately comfortable working with him. Even though the initial property wasn't for us, we became his clients on our search for one that was. Before buying a new place, we arranged for Rick to list our current home, and in one day of hitting the market, we accepted an almost full-price offer. His advice, guidance, and expertise played a key role in that success. Due to our sale happening so quickly, in a matter of days, Rick also negotiated our purchase of a property that we are very excited to move into. If you're wondering how long it took from when we first met Rick, to selling our home, and buying a new one? It all happened in a month. Having such a great experience, we highly recommend Rick for both selling and purchasing a home.
I am extremely happy with Rick's service throughout the buying process. As an out-of-town buyer, it's often difficult to arrange viewings, ask questions about properties, and complete offer paperwork, but Rick and his team took care of everything for me and made the buying process simple. Moreover, he took care of a couple small details with the sellers post-transaction - truly going above and beyond! I'd definitely use Rick again and recommend him to anyone looking to purchase in the Victoria area.
My partner and I had a vision of our future house in our minds but had a hard time putting it into words. Within a short time, Rick was able to narrow down our search significantly simplifying the process. What would have been an overwhelming list of potential houses was narrowed into a short list, which allowed us to find what we truly wanted in a home. Rick proved to be invaluable in negotiating our purchase and helping us put together our far from straight forward mortgage. He always made himself available and had our best interests in mind. We are extremely happy with our new home and are grateful to Rick for his expertise and personal approach. We would highly recommend Rick and the service he provides.
The service and personal attention we received from Rick Humphries was exceptional and unexpected from a REALTOR®! His knowledge of the local market and his key contacts in the community helped us in our search for our dream home. After patiently going through listing after listing Rick made sure we not only found the right home but also worked at getting the best value.Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Rick Humphries to help you in this life changing move. We will certainly be recommending him to our friends and family. We could not have asked for a better REALTOR® to guide us through the process.
It is without hesitation that I would, and have, recommended Rick as a REALTOR® to friends, family and colleagues alike. Among other things, he went above and beyond what I expected. Most importantly though, the time he spent communicating with me while I lived several thousand kilometers away from the listed property was of great help and made the process as smooth as possible. Rick's understanding and ability to cope with often challenging situations made him the ideal REALTOR® to handle what was an exceptionally difficult listing. At all times I felt as though he had my best interests at heart, but also understood the difficulties that the listing created for me. I will absolutely work with Rick in the future!
Rick - We truly appreciate the work you did with us in finding us our home. I felt like we were a little picky about what we wanted, and had you searching for months, but you never failed to update us and helping to find a home that was really what we were looking for. I really appreciate how you helped me through the buying process, first on my own which I was so nervous about, and then with both Coleton and I in working to get the conditions lifted. I think that process was especially stressful with these sellers and how we really had to push for extensions and getting everything done. We also appreciated that you kept us constantly updated, and remained extremely professional throughout your communications with us and the sellers. We were very impressed, and we couldn't have done it without you!
Rick was tremendously helpful in finding the perfect condo for me despite very specific requirements I had. Rick alleviated the stress involved with purchasing a new place by being punctual and responsive, arranging multiple viewings as soon as opportunities presented themselves and giving an abundance of unbiased advice on a variety of subjects (including what to look for and what to stay away from). In addition to that, when the right place came on the market, Rick was on the phone with me before the automatic alert system even sent me an email saying a new place matches my search criteria - now that's speed! His guidance and approach would be an excellent asset for anyone looking to buy a house or apartment.
Rick helped me find and purchase the house of my dreams. It being my first house, I had many questions which Rick either had the answer for, or was quick and eager to find the answer to. He even had the foresight to check and see if there was a buried oil tank, when I had already told him I 100% wanted the house. Rick ended up finding an underground tank, which saved me the hassle of dealing with a potential liability down the road. This showed me that he not only wanted to get the deal done, but wanted to look after me to the best of his abilities. I would definitely refer Rick as a REALTOR®.
Rick represented me for the sale of my house and the purchase of a condo. My house sold for over the asking price because Rick was able to orchestrate a multiple offer situation for me. His marketing strategy was sound and he consistently provided feedback from showings and open houses.
Thank you so much for helping us find our new home and for making the process so painless! It really was a pleasure working with you and we will definitely be recommending you to our friends/family.
Thanks Rick, we really appreciate all you've done for us (with the sale of our house and purchase of the condo). We couldn't have asked for a better and more efficient REALTOR®.
Thanks again for your assistance in locating and buying the place and the process of taking possession and moving in. We really appreciate your help!
Rick found us a perfect starter home for a good price in hot market. He was approachable, responsive and reliable.
Everything is going great at the house. We’re having a blast making it our own. We love the chickens and they seem to be doing really well! I don’t think we could have found a better house! We absolutely love our new home. Thanks so much Rick and the rest of the team!! We absolutely love our new home, couldn’t be happier. Rick was thorough, professional and knowledgable throughout, he’s our guy.
Rick did an excellent job helping us find a fantastic home that fit our needs and budget. Once we found the right home, Rick worked hard to negotiate a fair price for us. Due to some complications with the title, it was not your standard transaction. Other REALTORS® may have tried to convince us to give up on that home and look for another, but Rick knew we loved the home. So he found a way to get the answers and make things happen. It was more work for him, but he put his clients’ interests first. I would definitely use Rick again if we ever decide to purchase another home.
Rick was very helpful with the purchase of our new home. He walked us through each step and didn't mind explaining everything to us (sometimes more than once!) He was able to strike the perfect balance of professional, consistent, respectful, informed, energetic and calm. We had a great experience with Rick, and we won't hesitate to call him the next time around. Thanks for all the help! We love our house!
We are absolutely thrilled with our new place and it's all thanks to Rick and Paulette for all of their hard work, patience, and help, throughout our house hunt. You can tell that Rick truly cares about his clients' needs and invests a significant amount of time and energy into helping them find their perfect home. He was quick to answer any of our questions, immediately booked viewings upon request, and even brought us a lovely housewarming gift. We would highly recommend Rick to anyone we know! Thanks so much for all of your help, you two!
We are completely and utterly impressed. The fact that Rick was able to find a seller in the complex that Todd loved, was incredible! And, a seller that was willing to sell the place without listing it--wow! He certainly went above and beyond, we would unconditionally recommend Rick to anyone that is interested in buying or selling! He was able to help with many questions along the way, as we really didn't know what we were getting ourselves into, haha! He was great to help out showing the place to our renters and help my sister with the possession day as we could not be there at that time. Bottom line, we totally appreciate the professional service throughout the entire process and wouldn't change a thing!!
Thanks so much Rick. Again, great job finding that place for us! It was all you! We are so happy to have found this place!
I'll certainly recommend Rick to any of my friends who are looking for real estate help, he made everything easy.
Rick and his assistant Paulette provided top notch customer service from start to finish. Rick patiently showed us properties we requested and proactively included others that he felt were worth a look. They kept in touch after the accepted offer with checklists and reminders to keep us on track until closing. An excellent experience and we would highly recommend Rick to anyone!
As a first-time home buyer I couldn’t have worked with a better real estate agent. Rick is very attentive and clearly has a deep understanding of the Victoria market. I will definitely look to Rick the next time I’m buying or selling and wouldn’t hesitate referring him to my close friends and family.
We loved working with Rick as we searched for a new home. He knows the city extremely well and he was able to steer us to properties that were a good fit for us. He listened to our needs and our preferences and he offered great advice as we refined our criteria. Throughout our search, Rick was always asking thoughtful questions. When we were ready to make an offer, he and his team executed extremely well, making the process as easy and pleasant as possible. Rick is a strong negotiator and very client-centered: we would not hesitate to recommend him to any of our friends!
