Pinned Recommendation
Rick has been a Godsend to us. Our home was foreclosed in 2017 and we were dependent on a court auction date to have some finality and move forward with our lives.

Rick was recommended by a friend to help us look for rental homes. It was he that asked us if we wanted to purchase a home instead of renting - something we didn't even think was an option after a foreclosure. With our spirits lifted we began the search for a new home. Our auction date was postponed twice and each time prior, Rick worked with us to find and view suitable homes and line up financing only to have the auction put off and rescheduled. When the auction finally occurred and we knew we could move forward, he brought in Nancy Hancock to assist as well. Finally, in May 2018, with their help, we purchased our new home!

Rick helped us through nearly a year of ups and downs. He never grew tired of my questions and treated all our concerns with care and consideration. He has become famliy to us and we cannot say enough good things about Rick and Nancy!

On a related note, my father-in-law sold his waterfront condo in St. Petersburg through another realtor during the same time period and could have not had a more different experience. His realtor was dismissive, argued for the seller's interests instead of his and didn't even show up for the sale or the closing.
Rick Frissell has provided exceptional real estate service for us over many years. He was our fair and wise advocate on both the selling and buying sides of several transactions. For our recent home purchase, he astutely noted that a kitchen island defect should be addressed by the original builder as the home is fairly new. No other realtor had thought of this possible solution. The seller was able to talk to the builder per Rick’s recommendation and the builder provided considerable repairs to correct the problem. We were fortunate it was a reputable builder and that Rick knew the fair and reasonable way to approach them.
We highly recommend Rick Frissell for anyone needing a realtor.
The female listing agent was a excuse making "scatter brain"!
Rick stepped in and was there to answer ALL questions. The FAX machine was very busy. His expertise allowed for my bride and me to purchase our home in Valrico. An easy pleasant transaction with a "true professional".
With all the emotions of selling a house and moving, Rick was a life saver. He patiently worked with us through all the ups and downs and cared for us individually- not just as another client. He truly is a one of a kind individual, especially in our money making society!

I recently contacted Rick Frissell to sell my mother’s vacated 60-year old house after she was admitted to an assisted living facility. Rick and I are reunited childhood friends. I had sought his real estate savvy in the past and reaffirmed that he possessed the honesty, intelligence, and experience that I was looking for. Three days after signing a contract with Rick I ordered a dumpster and cleared out my mother’s old house. Rick worked up a pre-listing marketing strategy, and two days after the dumpster was picked up he had a buyer offering much more than we ever expected. I can’t guarantee that Rick will be able to find, or sell, your house in two days, but I can guarantee that you will be an impressed and satisfied client. I know my family is.
AWESOME!!!! Rick is truly amazing. We were moving from New England and only had one weekend to look at houses. Rick spend hours via email with us reviewing homes for sale and then spent his entire weekend taking us all over looking at houses. Yes, we found exactly what we were looking for.
Out of state client
Highly recommended. I had moved out of state but still needed to sell my house in Florida. There were SO many challenges not being able to stop by the house any time but Rick helped me every step of the way. When my first offer feel through he held an open house for two days immediately. His team made the process easy and I feel like I got the most money for my house that was out there.

Mortgage Banker, Fidelity Bank
As a long time Mortgage Professional, I have truly enjoyed working with Rick Frissell. Rick goes above and beyond for every client. Rick's understanding of the housing market is incredible. Rick analyzes the transactions with the buyer or seller in mind to help meet their true housing and budgetary goals. Also, as a military veteran, you can count on Rick to be there for you!
Rick was incredibly helpful. He paid full attention to our likes and dislikes and showed us houses only with those things. He also only showed us houses in our price range. When he had advice he asked if we wanted it before sharing. He was very much like a father figure to my fiancé and I in how he lead us through this process. He prayed with us each step of the way and we felt spoiled with the amazing attention we received. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Fantastic realtor! His team made things go so smoothly and quickly! He knew the area, gave us lots of Wisdom and insight, and communicated so clearly every few days! Most positive closing experience we have ever had
Bottom Line: The Red Baron takes care of you!! We bought our first house and can't say enough about how helpful Rick was through the whole process. He patiently explained every little thing to us, made sure we were taken care of no matter when we needed or wanted to go out looking, and really cared about us and looked out for our interests. Rick is a great, experienced realtor and good company. You will not regret working with Rick!
I would highly recommend Rick. He did a fantastic job for me in both selling my home and purchasing my new one. He was in constant contact with me and worked diligently to get my house sold. I feel he went above and beyond what was expected of him. The timing on the closings of both homes couldn't have gone smoother. He's the best!
Even though we were looking for a home far from the area where he normally works, Rick faithfully took us under his wing. And even though it took him at least an hour to drive out to where we were looking to buy a home, Rick came to show us the homes in our search area. Rick and Denise worked very hard on our behalf. My wife and I are deeply indebted to Frissells. We highly recommend them.
Sr. Payroll Specialist
Rick did a fantastic job for me selling my house. Throughout my experience with working with Rick, I found him to be very thorough, knowledgeable and honest. Rick was very attentive and always returned my phone calls and emails within the same day. Not only is Rick very personable with an outstanding personality, he made me feel like I was part of his family.

I would highly recommend Rick Frissell to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I know he will be my first choice should I ever need to move again.
Property Manager
Rick was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. He was very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods we visited and was prepared with his facts, figures and insights each time we went out. Rick would wait to offer his opinion until asked as opposed to other realtors we have known who do not hesitate to chime in. He allowed us space to discuss things and develop in the process at our pace.
My wife and I have come to think very highly of Rick. We consider ourselves lucky to have met him and even luckier to call him our friend. The highest compliment we could bestow is that we would, without hesitation, highly recommend him to anyone, looking to purchase a home.
Rick did a wonderful job helping us find our house. We found a couple online and gave him an idea of what we were looking for and he found multiple suggestions as well. We looked at quite a few houses available over a couple weeks and he offered up his opinions which was greatly appreciated as we were first time home buyers and quite hesitant to commit to anything unless we were sure it was right. I am so thankful that we had Rick to help us find a house that we have since made our home. It will serve us greatly over the next 30+ years. You can't go wrong with having Rick on your side as you begin to buy or sell your house. He is an honorable and honest man to have helping you work out your search or selling gameplan.

Grace and Peace,
Cory Dunbar
Rick Frissell is a very attentive realtor. His realty knowledge brought us success in selling our property. Thank you, Rick!
Rick sold two homes for us in a difficult market. The deals were both laborious and challenging, but Rick's persistent attention to detail made all the difference. His delightful personality and unmatched sense of humor made him a joy to work with. We highly recommend Rick!

Me and my wife Taharra had been looking for a house for about two years.
The real estate agents we were using didn't really educate us as Mr. Frissell did.
Mr. Rick Frissell helped us find a home not just a house. He helped us find the perfect place for our budget and a great spot in Riverview Fl. When ever we needed Rick he would always respond in a expedient manor. Mr. Frissell made our first home buying experience painless and it was without any flaws. When we are ready to upgrade Mr. Frissel will be the first one we call.
Rick is a wonderful and thorough realtor. He always is willing to go above and beyond for his clients, regardless of the request. In helping make my first home purchase, Rick made the process as simple and pain free as possible, helping me think through things I never would have. If you're looking for a realtor that is personable, friendly, considerate, and pays attention to details, Rick will be a great fit with you.
Staff Accountant
Rick is an excellent realtor. He has helped me on several real estate transactions in the past few years. His years in the profession shows by the vast amount of information and knowledge about the real estate business and importantly in market trends. I recently recommended him to a co-worker who Rick was able to successfully find the perfect home for him and his family. I endorse him 110%.
Rick did a great job selling my house and helping my family find a new home. He got the job done well!!! Thanks Rick.
Rick Frissell is a fantastic and caring Realtor. He helped me purchase my home. He answered my questions when asked and if he did not know the answer he researched and got back to me. A wonderful realtor to have on your side. He is on your SIDE.
I worked with Rick a few years back. He is very personable but never pushy. He took a lot of time to show me the EXACT properties I was interested in. Ultimately decided not to buy at that time, but would work with him again when and if I were in the market to buy a home! I would recommend Rick!!!
