I have dealt with some of Victoria's "Top REALTORS®", but I haven't had the success with "them" as I have had with Rick Humphries. He was highly recommended to me by a real good friend, and I was really pleased with his high level of service. I found Rick a "Real Go-Getter" and very "Gung-Ho..." Rick sold my home on the very first open house, and I recommend him to anyone who would like rapid results. Thanks again, Rick, you have proven to me that you are a real professional.
Rick Humphries recently sold our condo in Victoria and we are very pleased with his services from beginning to end and with the sale price. Rick was very knowledgeable about the present market, professional in his marketing material, and most understanding of our needs. He suggested painting the condo (it was empty) and found painters who did an excellent job within a few days. Rick also suggested staging the LR and DR and again found someone who did wonderful work on a tight timeline. When we had several offers, Rick worked effectively with the other agents and again was most helpful with his advice to us. Since we don't live in Victoria, this complete and efficient service was very much appreciated. We can recommend Rick Humphries as a personable, knowledgeable, prompt, and reliable agent whom we would definitely use again.
Selling a house is not something you do too often in a life time and it is probably one of the largest financial transactions you will have to deal with so we were very anxious about trusting complete strangers. We started our experience by interviewing a number of REALTORS® to determine what the process of selling a house entailed and what kind of people we would feel comfortable working with. We were impressed by a number of candidates but two were professionally persistent and offered to prepare brochures and sit down with us to explain the process as well as answer all our questions about the selling and preparing a house for sale. We chose the team of Pat Meadows and Rick Humphries because of the quality of the brochure, the expected selling price of the house and their understanding of how Ethel and I personally felt about preparing the house for sale, they helped to make the process comfortable and gave us confidence that any risk of the financial process would be professionally handled. We were so impressed with Pat and Rick because of; the depth and professionalism in sales brochure, the timeliness of communication with us, the immediate offer that was close to our expectations and also positive assurance that there was a very good chance that the house would sell quickly. We were even more impressed when we got the offer hand delivered to our home in North Saanich and came with the high expectations that the sale would go through. We will very likely be selling another house in the next 24 months and will definitely call upon Pat and Rick to help us.
Rick Humphries exceeded all my expectations as a REALTOR® for a seller. When we first met he was courteous but realistic about the rental property I was selling. He pointed out things that needed to be attended to for a quick sale but also suggested that some improvements should be left for a potential buyer and the selling price adjusted appropriately. He had recommendations for various trades people who could quickly handle the improvements to be made before listing the property. Since I reside two hours away, he also checked on the progress of this work for me. The photos Rick used made an older house look bigger and invited prospective buyers to get a first hand look. After the house was listed Rick kept me up to date by telephone about showings and multiple offers came in quickly. Again Rick made the process easy by scanning and emailing documents to be signed. In the end I sold the house for the amount that Rick and I had felt would be a fair final price even before it was listed, and the whole process from cleanup before listing to handing the keys to the new owner took less than two months. Thanks again Rick.
While selling our first home, Rick was patient and knowledgeable and helped navigate us through the process. His client service was impressive and he kept us informed every step of the way. Rick went above and beyond with his marketing strategy and efforts put into advertising our property. His knowledge and experience in the Victoria Real Estate Market provided valuable insight that helped us with our decisions. We are very happy with the result and would highly recommend Rick to our family and friends.
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.
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®.
A Special thanks to Rick for selling our house. Our house was sold very quickly, within only a couple of weeks. He was there for us from beginning to end and kept us well informed. He was very personable to our needs, but was also "all business" while getting the job done. We will use Rick again for our real state needs and recommend him to all of our friends.
I listed this unit with Rick and he arranged to clean the unit, developed and executed an aggressive marketing strategy, and twenty days later presented me with a clean, and almost full price offer, which I accepted. The sale closed and my cheque was received—start to finish in less than a month and a half. Throughout the entire process, Rick was enthusiastic, courteous, and professional. In view of his success, and the knowledge of the two buildings and by-laws that he has now acquired, I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Rick to any current owners considering listing their unit.
We thank you so much for the most professional manner in which you conducted the sale of our condo and for your help with being around band available for the furniture removal. It's a certainty that should Victoria be on our horizon again you will hear from us!
Very happy with your services from day one until now. I found everything extremely professional from your knowledge base, to the advertising and photography and continued support throughout the process. I thank you as well for your patience as well.
It was great to see how quick it all came together in less than 45 days, from the sale of our old house, to possession of our new house. We are now within walking distance to the beach and ocean. We love our new house!
Rick and his team at Royal LePage make everything seamless when buying or selling a home. They are easy to get a hold of and promptly take action. I trust their professional ability to protect all parties interest in both sales and purchases.
