Raised in the Silicon Valley, Rick went through the local school systems - graduated from Fremont High School in Sunnyvale, went to De Anza College in Cupertino, and graduated with a degree in Business & Corporate Financial Management from San Jose State University. From there he went on to proudly serve his country in the United States Marine Corps, as a Landing Support Specialist. Upon completion of his military service Rick made a full transition into Real Estate, with the goal of building a reputation for unparalleled client service and becoming a trusted source for clients to confidently refer their family and friends. A distinguishing mark of Rick's service is that he treats every client as a top priority. He works closely and directly with clients and their families from start to finish. He has successfully helped numerous individuals and families throughout Sunnyvale and surrounding communities and would love to do the same for you.

One of Rick's specialties involves working with seniors and their families. After witnessing the time, energy, and mental strain it took to transition his grandmother’s 30+ years of belongings, as well as the added responsibility and stress it placed on his mom and aunt, he realized there had to be a better option. That's when he made the decision to become a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) and began vetting and partnering with dozens of helpful senior resources from movers to care providers to legal advisors - making the process of packing 30+ years of belongings and moving much easier. Today Rick has a well-established network of resources to assist his clients from start to finish. Considering a move? Contact Rick Trevino.

As first-time home buyers, my husband and I could not be happier with the service Rick provided. Rick has great knowledge and understanding of the Bay Area housing market which help to make the purchase of our home extremely smooth. Rick was always willing to answer any questions that came up during the process and was informative with his answers. In addition, Rick was extremely responsive via text, emails, and scheduled phone calls. My husband and I would highly recommend Rick to anyone that is looking to purchase a home.

I cannot say enough positive things about Rick. He helped me with a challenging home purchase. I needed to buy a home for my daughter as part of a 1031 exchange, meaning there were more timelines and details to manage than usual. My daughter is developmentally delayed so we had some unique requirements as to location and the interior. On top of that he took myself, my daughter and my ex-husband, her father, out on several occasions to look at numerous houses, wonderfully accommodating our different personalities and needs. He was incredibly patient, upbeat, empathetic and helpful in all my interactions with him. When we had to break a contract on an offer I made due to changing financial information, he was professional and kind with all parties and kept me updated throughout the stressful process. In the end, we found a great house for her and met all our requirements. As so many have said, he is the epitome of integrity and a kind and good person on top of it! Don't hesitate to hire him. He will do his best for you and that is very, very good!!

If you were to look up the definition of integrity you would find a photo of Rick Trevino. His strong sense of work ethic, ultimate professionalism, patience, and belief in true customer service is a rarity in today’s market. As a client of his for over two years while he helped us sell our Townhome in San Jose, we witnessed him create individualized plans which he executed efficiently, considerately, and with the flexibility necessary when dealing with the fluxes inherent in Real Estate. Rick‘s extensive education and knowledge of Real Estate coupled with his excellent client relations make him an outstanding agent - one we recommend with the highest of honors!

We recently sold our home in Sunnyvale. Our real estate agent was Rick Trevino. He did a great job in guiding us through the home sales process. Rick is very knowledgeable about the sales trends in our area. He gives you his opinion on how to best market your house for the best price. He helps arrange painters, handymen and gives you a time table so you know every step of the way the sales process. He is great about checking in frequently with the painters and handyman to keep everyone on track. Rick will come out in the evening to discuss sales details. He was very good about keeping us informed on the details of our sales process. He went over and beyond in making sure our house was staged well and even came over and spot cleaned our house prior to the photographer coming to film our house for the sales brochure. Rick took care of all of the multitude of details leading up to a successful sale of our house. Rick is personable and works hard for his clients. We would definitely recommend Rick if you are selling your house.

Rick helped us sell my mom's home, in a multi-party sale. Rick was detailed, patient, thoughtful, and a great communicator, and we got a great price for our home, guided by Rick's excellent preparation. We had a few bumps on the buyer's side in our sale, and Rick guided everyone fairly and calmly through those developments. We were also remote sellers, and my mom has limited computer skills and access, and Rick accommodated her with no trouble. I would work with Rick again, for sure.

I have seen Rick's work for the past three years. I can unconditionally say that he is as honest, reliable, detailed oriented, committed, and hard working realtor and individual that you will find. Whatever challenge you give to Rick, he will give you results that you will be more than happy with. Rick specializes in helping seniors downsize, move closer to family members, or transition into assisted living communities. He has special training as a Senior Real Estate Specialist (65+). His area of expertise is in the Sunnyvale and Willow Glen communities; but he does work in other areas. His negotiating skills ranks up there to get you top dollar or the home of your dreams.

Rick did a simply fantastic job helping us sell our home! From the very first day, he gave us a top-level view of the process to set expectations, offered knowledgeable suggestions without pushing us in one direction or another, and communicated very clearly throughout the process. With well timed open houses and market research, he followed through on a sale that obtained an absolute top price for our neighborhood in record time. After accepting our top offer, our buyers repeatedly hit administrative roadblocks and tried to delay closing. Rick was firm but fair in keeping the urgency to close high, providing us with updates every single day and being prepared with alternatives in case the buyers fell through. Last but definitely not least, Rick is one of the nicest and most sincere people you'll meet, a real pleasure to work with him. Selling a home a can be difficult and stressful event, but with a professional like Rick, you'll sleep easy knowing it's covered!

Home Buyer
I worked with a Rick while buying for the first time and am now all settled into my condo. From start to finish, working with Rick was very enjoyable! He did an awesome job of explaining all the steps of the process to me, whenever I asked - from pre-approval to what the final papers I signed were about. Every time I had a funny request (mostly: can we check if a gas fireplace can be installed in this condo? And how much would these things cost to fix?) Rick called in a handyman/HFAC person as necessary to get the question answered. During the search itself, Rick never hovered and yet sent some great homes to look at, was always very on point for answering questions, and very successful in getting answers for me out of various HOAs and associated people. When the time came in to put in an offer, Rick’s advice was very on point - my winning offer was neck and neck with the second offer. Rick’s support continued even after I moved in - the carpet store and handyman Rick recommended were amazing! Essentially, once I decided to work with Rick - I didn’t have to look for another contractor of any kind because Rick always had great recommendations. Long story short - Rick made the process of buying a home for the first time almost stress-free and quite fun!

Rick did an excellent job helping my mom sell her Willow Glen home. He is very knowledgeable about the market, can offer great suggestions about ways to maximize value that are user-friendly, and for the big improvement jobs, can help to streamline an otherwise overwhelming process by suggesting a variety of vendors and procuring competitive estimates to allow the seller plenty of options. He takes so much off of your plate and makes the process as seamless as he can. We didn’t know where to start and he gave us all the tools we needed to get hit the ground running. Additionally, he is very sensitive to your budget and will work with you to improve the things that will give you maximum return without going overboard unnecessarily. He is trustworthy, reliable and a very hard worker.

It is worth noting that my mom has some memory issues that impacted her ability to handle all the moving parts that are inevitable in the sale of a home and Rick is uniquely qualified to assist in such a situation, and did so with unexpected diligence, perseverance and care. I cannot overstate this point. Rick went above and beyond to not only take as much of the burden off of her as possible, but did so in such a way that it was clear he genuinely had her welfare at heart. The level of service that he provided was staggering and I cannot thank him enough.

When it came to the actual sale of the property, he brought in a handful of highly competitive offers and ultimately got about $250K over the asking price. Rick really delivered in every possible way and I would recommend him as an agent to anyone without hesitation. Thanks for everything, Rick!

Rick Trevino is awesome! He must be the hardest working realtor in town. Our neighbor needed to sell her house, which needed a bunch of fixing up. She is ill and could not handle the projects that needed to get done before sale, so Rick stepped in and oversaw all the work, checked on contractors, stopped by regularly to see how things were going, and even helped load her car when the time came to move out. Without his help her home would have sold for a whole lot less.

Proud to be retired Grandparents!!
It was a pleasure to work with Rick Trevino, he helped us in selling a home in the last few months. A charming personality goes with his expertise in real estate. Just what you need to accomplish one of the most important transactions in your life, going the distance from beginning to end with a smile even if there is a hiccup along the way. Although being reluctant to stage the home due to cost, we did, with his referral and it made a huge difference in the showing of the home during open house. He will also look into any unique, out of the normal circumstance and come up with a solution.

If you need someone to help you whether you are buying or selling, Rick’s the one to call. Real estate agents are a dime a dozen, so why hire just anyone, when you can hire a special one. Rick can make your experience an easy one with an outstanding outcome.

We had the opportunity to work with Rick last December. He helped us sell our house in San Jose and purchase our new house in Redwood City. With his professional business acumen and his diligent taking care of clients, the process of selling and buying was fast and smooth. We would like to commend him for his extra care of sale preparation including site photography and videography, and several open house sessions during our long Christmas holidays out of town.

I met Rick a couple of years ago when both my wife and I were ill. After he left we received information on insurances, physical therapy and other information that may be useful. I am not Rick's client but he drops by on a regular basis. He has become a good friend and we respect his advice and knowledge.

Rick is always there for you,day or night,so it seemed. I would recommend his service to anyone buying a home.

Rick is Incredible. he helped me look at some houses as I continue to save up, while learning about the market, and when and how to purchase my dream home. caring, kind, and attentive, rick is beyond reproach. he delves in to the details for you, finds the prime locations you have been dreaming off, and helps both sellers and buyers find the right price. coming across a realtor like this is incredibly rare, because Rick makes sure that not just the sell or buy goes smoothly, he makes sure you are happy, and what more could anyone ask for?

Though I have not completed a transaction using Rick's services yet, I have had the opportunity to discuss possible upcoming needs for two of my family members, including aging parents. In every interaction, Rick has been responsive, helpful, honest, straightforward. He is compassionate, puts people first, and is a genuinely caring guy. In my case he recognizes that sometimes a move or local relocation decision can take time, and he has been there to help as events unfold. I highly recommend Rick Trevino.

Rick has consistently shown himself to be a person of caring integrity and I have designated him to be the person who will sell my home, when the time comes. His can-do and helpful attitude are outstanding. He responds quickly to any concerns with "solution" options!
