What our clients say...
Pat Murphy - Buyer - Sun City West
I would like to personally thank Rick for a job well done in selling our home in Corte Bella. We live in New England and couldn't have done it with out you. The process was smooth thanks to great communication, knowledge of the area and expertise in working with buyers and sellers. Rick goes above and beyond for his customers and I strongly urge you to use his services. He is "The Best Realtor" in Arizona!!!
Nubin Smith - Buyer - Sun City
Rick Nichols was prompt to answer questions & inquiries. It had been 46 years since I had bought a home & he kept me informed about the process at every step along the way. He was very knowledgeable about the area & condos I was looking to buy. Rick Nichols was great to work with & made buying a home a pleasurable. I highly recommend Rick Nichols as a Realtor!
Irwin - Buyer - Sun City West
If you are looking to purchase a home or sell your home, we highly recommend you choose Rick Nichols as your real estate agent. We recently purchased a home in Sun City West. Being from the Midwest, we were unable to view the home in person. Rick immediately created a narrated video and sent it to us. When we contacted him with questions, he promptly responded. He was in constant communication with us every step of the way through the purchase of our home which helped put our minds at ease and made the process so much easier. He exceeded our expectations as a realtor with his outstanding customer service. He also displays the utmost professionalism when working with others associated with your real estate transaction. Even after our closing, he has continued to be of help by recommending a handyman, getting a quote for us for a landscaper, etc. Rick Nichols is someone you want to have as your real estate agent!
W R Waltters - Buyer - Sun City West
We would definitely recommend Rick Nichols to anyone looking to buy a house in the Sun City West area. We were coming in from out of state and he previewed quite a few homes for us and sent us videos before we got to town. He was very helpful throughout the whole process of buying our home in Sun City West. He went above and beyond the call of duty on many, many occasions during the entire process. He did everything to make the process easier for us from contacting the home inspector and recommending a home insurance agent and landscaper, to name a few. We bought a foreclosed home, which required much more time and effort for Rick. He handled all aspects with great professionalism and in a timely manner.
F R - Buyer - Glendale
Meticulous and kept in communication with me throughout the process as I am a first time buyer of a home. Walked me thru the property and noticed some things were not right and hired a handy man to make them right....replaced my key pad for the garage so the door would work properly. Was always available and again, communicated with me and the seller's agent; with escrow and loan people. Rick is an intelligent agent that knows the industry extremely well....customer service and work ethic describe Rick, with his customers best interest in the forefront. If you are looking to purchase or sell, Rick is someone you should hire!!!
Judy D - Buyer - Surprise
Two months ago I moved to Surprise, AZ with Rick Nichols assistance. He went way beyond my expectations from any realtor. As I was a buyer coming from out of town, he went out of his way to preview homes for me before I arrived. He listened attentively to what I wanted in a home and was able to direct me to several that checked off the key points on my "Must have" list. He recommended a lender, and I was pre-qualified for a loan before I arrived. He found me my dream home and I have never had a real estate transaction go so smoothly. Thank you Rick!
Pat Merrill - Seller - Sun City West
Rick is definitely a professional in all ways. In addition, he went beyond the standard numerous times - even to polishing the front door before an open house. He knew his market, he knew his buyers, and his relationship with other agents was certainly an asset. He was easy to reach, quick to reply, and had the answers. Having been brokers in another state, we know hard work and expertise when we see it and Rick exemplifies both. We highly recommend him!!
AC Scholes - Buyer - Sun City West
If you've ever wanted a real estate agent to look out for YOU, Rick is the one. From the very beginning, we felt he was handling the whole process as if the house was his own personal purchase. He kept us in the loop and there was never a time that we didn't know what was going on or what the next step would be. This was an out of state purchase and could have been a nightmare, but not with Rick. He went above and beyond in all aspects of our house hunting and purchase and still is long after our closing. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!!! You won't find a more honest, hard working, knowledgeable real estate agent anywhere.
MA Chanlaing - Buyer - Sun City West
As Canadians, we were not familiar with the process of buying a property in Arizona. Rick led us through the process and answered all of our questions. Rick answered our emails and phone call promptly and put us at ease when we were unsure what to do next. From making the deal, to home inspections, escrow, and picking us the keys, Rick was friendly, honest, and straight forward.
I have already recommended Rick to a colleague and would make this recommendation again without hesitation.
Thanks Rick from your friends in Calgary, Alberta.
Christine Lundquist - Buyer - Peoria
Rick not only was a complete pleasure to work with and a gentleman at all times, he was the hardest working most responsive Realtor I have ever worked with. I have bought and sold 8 homes before I met Rick so I speak from experience. I could call Rick and tell him I was coming to town in two days and give him a list of homes I wanted to see and he made it happen. I could call him and ask him to preview a home for me and he would jump on it that day often in the evening. But also when it came to contract time and negotiation time he was thorough, timely and professional. Rick is absolutely the finest Realtor in all aspects of the job from beginning to end. I feel extremely lucky to have had the pleasure to work with him. Because of him my dream home is now a reality.
Stillwell - Buyer - Whittman
We have been looking at properties with Rick for over a year and he put us into his streaming properties email with our parameters. This July a property came up on our email and since we were in Washington State for the summer we called Rick and asked him to find out if this property was still available. Not only did Rick look up the MLS # on this property, but he went to the property and took detailed pictures and emailed them to us the very next day. The property was a short sale and after talking to Rick we put in an offer on July 5, 2012. The short sale process with Bank of America was tedious to say the least, but Rick took the extra steps to get updates from BofA via twitter and the other agent. After numerous delays by B of A and monthly extensions of the foreclosure auction, Rick lined us up with a gentlemen that handles these types of auctions and to make a long story short, the auction was held on 10/5/12 and we were the lucky winners at $12,000 less than B of A wanted. Rick also went the extra mile when it looked like our bank was going to have a problem meeting the wire cutoff for funds. He was going to draw the required funds from his own personal account in order to meet the deadline so we wouldn't loose the house or our auction deposit. We have purchased many homes in our lives and have dealt with many realtors both as purchasers, sellers and in my job as a mortgage loan processor/underwriter to appreciate a truly professional and committed realtor as Rick Nichols. I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.
Joel Castaneda - Buyer
As a first time home buyer it was awesome working with Richard. He made sure to take me through the process step by step and offered detailed explanations when I got the blank/confused expression on my face. He had a quick answer to any question no matter how simple (and believe me, I had no clue so my questions were) or got back to me after some research. He got me into a great house and we closed the deal last week. I really appreciate his patience and guidance. I will not hesitate to use his services for future business and I highly recommend you seek him out. Richard is the man for the job whether you are a real estate vet or a virgin like me you will not be disappointed. Thank you so much again Sir!
