My wife, Sally, and I worked with Rick for over a year and one-half to find the right home in Richmond.

We lived in Northern Virginia so it was a two hour trip each way to visit a potential site which made scheduling and thorough research high priorities in a tight Housing Market. There were covid restrictions and concerns as well. Rick was very responsive and considerate of our time and needs. He is the consummate professional in addition to being a caring and thoughtful person who we thoroughly enjoyed working with. The market was red hot and very challenging but Rick steered us through to a happy ending. I recommend Rick without any hesitation and with confidence that any client will receive the same outstanding service we did.

Charles Hatcher Williamson Hatcher

We are very glad that we chose Rick and his team to sell our home as well as find a new 55+ home for us.

After we decided to stage our home in order to take the proceeds to buy our new one Rich enabled us to sell our house the first day that a beautiful incredible video of it went on line. We had 5 visits that day and 3 people offered bids higher than the listed price. He went the extra mile in advertising our property. He did everything possible to have things move smoothly along and responded quickly to every concern and question we had. We had confidence in his wide experience and know that we are fortunate in having chosen him in helping us make the transition from our home of 44 years to a brand new new one in an area we are familiar with. We give him and his team a 5 star rating.

Patricia & Terry Hoy

Hi Rick:    We appreciate you including us in your email distribution.

   At this time you have done an outstanding job in finding the right retirement home for us. Most clients probably would take a shorter time to find the right place. Fortunately you had the patience to stick hang in there through good and bad times and put up with our objectives. The big plus you have is "Customer Relationship". After spending time with you and Josh you made us feel like one of the family.    On the humorous side you reacted to our desire to buy a new house. You took to every nook in Richmond to show us what was available and determine our real needs. Not only did we see a lot of houses but we consumed a lot of sweets. You were kind enough to always be available when we wanted to come to Richmond to look at houses. You also burnt up a sizable  fuel bill from the drives to far off places. The speed on the return trip  probably burnt more gas.    While some of the houses were beautiful we needed your help to get up the driveway. We were so enchanted by a house in Centerville that we put in an offer. Had we bought it we would be suffering from the steep driveway and steps to the porch. You introduced us to the community by giving us directions in terms of landmarks at which to turn e.g. the library or the school.    I know you were not looking for this response from us but our association with you has been superb. We enjoyed the long hunt which you found the right property for us.    Thanks for your support Cheers Enid & Don Don Park1024 Belva Court Glen Allen VA 23059804.918.7754

Michael Tomillon

It had been a long time since we sold a house but we really wanted to downsize.

Realtor Rick Perkins determined our wants and needs then recommended some workmen a cleaner a stager and a photographer who all did professional timely and surprisingly inexpensive work to present our home online to potential buyers. He also preserved mask and distancing precautions to protect everyone from the virus. To develop interest before the live listing Rick used the "Coming Soon" feature online. The first family who saw our home bought it for more than the asking price! Wow! Then Rick led us through an effortless (for us) closing process. We could not have asked for more and highly recommend Rick to sell your home quickly and safely. We would use his services again.

Bob & Carolyn Schmitt

Rick is a nice guy and consummate pro.

He assessed our property thoroughly and priced it appropriately. He helped us facilitate repairs and updates. His approach was low-key, straightforward, and honest. And we loved the results--sold in 36 hours, at $20K above asking price!

Bruce Osborne

When Pam & I decided to sell our home in a 55+ Community we interviewed several Realtors and Rick had the most experience.

He receives our highest recommendation for anyone selling their house in a 55+ Community! During the selling process Rick had two Open House Showing and several individual Showings. Rick was always very Professional and always giving us feedback from the Showings. With Covid starting up in March we knew it would be difficult but Rick and his team rose to the occasion and Sold our house. Both Pam and I were very please with Rick's open communication thru the whole process. If you need to sell your home Rick is the man you want. Tom & Pam Harris

Rick Perkins was my realtor in the spring of 2021.

. my daughter found him for me and was impressed that he is exceptionally good in working with the senior population, which I am, and that was a plus for me. He gave excellent advice to me, and always listened and acted upon concerns and questions of mine. The entire move, listing and sale was carried out to perfection and without delays. I feel like with Rick’s knowledge, all age groups would be completely satisfied with him as their realtor. He is tops!

Brenda Harris

Rick was very attentive to our requests and speedy when trying to resolve an issue.

I would recommend to anyone selling or buying a house.

Ann & Rudolph Schneider

Rick Perkins did an outstanding job in marketing and selling my home.

His very complete and professional assessment of the value of my home gave me confidence in the listing price. More importantly to me Rick was very kind.My husband died and I was overwhelmed with managing his estate getting the house ready to show and the waves of grief that could come at any time. Rick saw my challenges and would easily change expectations while always assuring me that everything was OK.I can't reccomend Rick Perkins too highly.

Debbie Repp

We began our house hunting journey with Rick Perkins years ago.

My husband and I weren't 100% sure of our needs at that time, but Rick persevered and changed course with us every time our wants and needs changed. When we found the perfect home, Rick was the kind of advocate in real estate everyone should be lucky to find. Consequently, we are very happy with the location and gorgeous home we now have. We will forever be thankful for the effort, patience, and expertise that Rick, and all of his associates, showed us during the entire process.

Debra Riddick

Rick Perkins is the perfect Agent for anyone selling a home in CrossRidge.

He has contacts that will stage your home, make any repairs needed, and they are all very reasonable in price. Our home was sold the first day it was listed for more than the asking price! Rick was quick to return phone calls and we had complete confidence in his suggestions. We are more than pleased to recommend Rick Perkins as a fantastic Realtor.

William Van O'Linda

My wife and I are from out of town and did not have a realtor.

We found Rick and could not be happier that we did. Rick was outstanding. He made us feel comfortable with the entire process. He quickly found out what we were looking for and showed us homes that met our desires. After we found a house we wanted Rick helped us throughout the entire closing process. He even helped us find a well qualified lawyer to represent us. After the closing he has continued to work with us answering questions as they have come up. Rick was a true professional and we would definitely recommend him to others. We will be inviting him to our home for a drink once we move in.

Philip Barak

We found Rick Perkins by looking on a website for 55+ Active Adult Communities in Virginia.

We met Rick at the Clubhouse in Settlers Ridge VA. He turned out to be one of the most professional knowledgeable and personable real estate agents that we'd met and decided to work with him. We are very happy that we did! We would also recommend Rick Perkins to anyone who is in the market for housing. Again Thank You Rick for all your help and support.

Clint and Tonza Watson

Rick helped us purchase our current home.

While we were in a bidding war with another party, Rick was creative in structuring the deal that was attractive to both sides. My experience with Rick has been nothing but the most positive experience I could hope for. He takes great pride in providing his clients with the best service possible. His knowledge and instinct have been very impressive. I plan to have Rick represent us in every home sale or purchase going forward. I know he will come through for us!

Gene Fitz

Rick Perkins was so unbelievable great to work with He was gracious and made sure things were always in order and reaching out to us about things that had to be done.

He went over the top doing things for us since we are in Pennsylvania and the estate home we were selling was in Virginia. Not only did he pick up our mail from down thereand send it to us he always check the home inside to make sure everything was in place until settlement. I wish I could give him higher then a 5 star because he truly deserves it !

Roberta Weiger

After interviewing several realtors, we selected Rick Perkins.

Rick has a very extensive background in real estate. After carefully reviewing our situation, he submitted an-in depth analysis and suggested a fair price for selling our home. Rick was very detailed, working constantly behind the scenes keeping our home featured in many forms of social media. As a result of his efforts, our home sold in spite of a very difficult period of the economy. Rick is a positive, honest, smart, punctual and hard working man. We highly recommend him for either buying or selling your home. Gary and Carol Slate 11/10/2022

Laurel Leyden

It's hard to believe that it's been almost five years ago that we moved into the CrossRidge community.

Rick Perkins directed the search process, showing us several home options in planned communities in the Richmond area. After visiting available homes in CrossRidge we made an offer which was accepted. Rick listed our home which sold the day it was listed. We are happy with our home and living in CrossRidge. Rick worked hard to show us home options that addressed our needs, and selling our home.

I have dealt with several realtors in my 75 years and I have never had the privilege of working with one like Rick Perkins.

He is so protective of his clients and will give advise based on the wisdom of his years as a Realtor. He will try to prevent you from making a mistake if he suspects one. His recommendations are spot on. He is as accommodating and responsive as can possibly be expected. With Rick I met a realtor. With Rick I gained a friend.

We could not recommend the Rick Perkins Team enough!

We had a marvelous experience. Rick and his team go above and beyond for home buyers making the process a positive experience. As first time home buyers my husband and I really appreciated the guidance insight and perspective Rick provided us. We are so appreciative of The Rick Perkins Team and will not ever use another realtor besides him.

Richard & Kouryn Fiesel

I am a very happy homeowner and can't say enough good things about Rick.

It was time for me to downsize. It had been thirty years since buying a home with my husband. Now alone I needed help and someone to represent me in the house hunting/buying process. Not sure how I found Rick in this whole process but he was perfect. He listened to what I wanted and needed for my final move to age in place. He directed me to houses/condos that fit closest to what I was looking for in all areas so I could make an educated choice and the best decision for me. He was not pushy and I felt no pressure from him to buy. Once I found the "perfect free standing condo" for me he negotiated with the sellers looked out for my best interest and guided me all the way through the purchasing process. The sellers even told me "boy has he got your back". He thought of everything and I could not have done this without him. Rick was wonderful and I would never shop or buy a house without a buyers agent and this man is one of the best. I give him an A+ and highly recommend him!

Jenny Coates

We can't say enough good things about our experience with Rick.

He has a wealth of experience and knowledge and took the time to educate and guide us through the entire process. Rick is patient kind honest responsive and reliable. He went above and beyond even working during his vacation to help us get our home! He is a skilled negotiator and knows how to make an attractive offer in a competitive market. If you're shopping around for a realtor look no further.

Liz & Mark Gallant

From the first moment that we met Rick Perkins we knew we had someone who really cared about us.

He was very efficient knowledgeable and always pleasantly returned our calls immediately. He provided a beautiful visual tour of our home and when he put it on the market it was sold the very first day for more than we had asked!!! We attribute that to his dedication and experience. We just relaxed and he handled everything that needed to be done during this very difficult time when the COVID-19 took place and we couldn't get out. You will never find a better realtor who ended up feeling like a new friend!

Jacqueline and Robert Bratton

Rick is a truly exceptional real estate agent.

We moved to Virginia from Georgia and he kept reviewing new listings for many weeks and sending the ones he thought would interest us. This allowed us two make the most use of our time househunting in Virginia. He knows the market very well and shared many insights about the pros and cons of living in various places. He was also instrumental in finding a real estate lawyer for us a contractor to do repairs on our new home and told us about a unique mortgage available only two seniors that will save us a great deal of money. I felt that we had found a friend not just an agent.

Steve and Susan Kendall

Rick Perkins was our real estate agent for several weeks during the recent search for and purchase of our home in the Richmond VA area.

His professional services and personable guidance were invaluable every step of this often stressful process. Rick coordinated with the lender and the title company kept us constantly updated with the many details of the transaction and explained the sometimes confusing documentation required to buy a home. Rick has our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for his outstanding services! Tom and Carol Proctor

Carol Proctor

Rick went beyond expectations in his representation of our interests and being a clear and calming source of information and status of the sales process.

We referred a dear friend and neighbor to Rick and they are currently working with him to sell their home.

Randy and Barbara Scott

We moved from NoVA to RVA with little prior knowledge of the Richmond area.

We were fortunate to locate Rick through an on-line search, and after a phone conversation we decided to have him guide our housing search. We were not disappointed. Rick gave us a great orientation to the area and patiently guided us through a variety of options that would meet our needs. We ultimately decided to build a new home in one of the developments he led us to, a process that spanned more than a year. Rick stayed with us through the entire process, providing a lot of useful guidance and making what could have been a stressful process enjoyable. We highly recommend Rick and will certainly turn to him again, if and when we sell our home.

Roger & Donna Simak

We have never known a better more helpful real estate agent than Rick Perkins!

We were looking for a home in a 55+ community. Rick provided important facts and unique details about every 55+ community in the greater Richmond area to help us choose. He is truly an expert. After helping us find the right house in the right community Rick stayed with us and guided us through the entire process from construction to closing. He attended meetings with us and often acted as a liaison on our behalf. He was supportive and calming when we felt nervous wise when we were uncertain. His advice was invaluable. We have tremendous respect for Rick Perkins and are most grateful for his excellent assistance. Additionally he is a very pleasant person! We enjoyed his company and recommend him highly. He is the best!
