Happy Home Owner
Rick helped us find our first home in 2013, and went to bat to get us an incredible deal and a home we absolutely loved. When we were ready to move 7 years later, we immediately thought of Rick. He was just as patient and caring with our questions as he was the first time around, and easily navigated us through critical conversations to help us determine our budget, the area in which we wanted to live, and more.

We ended up finding the home of our dreams, selling our home, and moving all during the COVID-19 pandemic, and while I think that some of these things worked themselves out by chance, I do believe the transitions would not have been nearly as smooth, and would have been much more stressful without Rick by our side.

We plan to stay here until we get tired of doing steps, but when the kids go off to college and we're ready to downsize, we will call Rick to help us! He's more than our realtor. He's a friend forever.

I am highly recommending Rick Brown to anyone who is looking to buy a new home, especially if you’re a first time home buyer like I was. He is super friendly and down to earth and will always keep your best interests in mind. Buying a new home can be stressful at times but Rick will always make sure you feel at ease. He is very knowledgeable and will guide you through the entire process step by step while answering any and all of your questions. I knew right away that I was in good hands with him and even after closing on my new home, Rick has followed up with me and continued his support. He will always go out of his way to make sure you're satisfied with your home buying experience. If or when I buy another home, it will be Rick by my side again. Thanks Rick!

I would recommend Rick to anyone looking to buy a home. Rick conducts himself in the most professional of ways. He explains things well, is 100 percent reliable, is
a good communicator, in touch when he says he will be, and just a generally really nice guy. He is more than willing to help arrange things such as an inspection and closing company particulars, etc., was incredibly helpful explaining things to me about the process as we went along, and negotiated on my behalf. He loves what he does which makes it that much more of a pleasure to work with him. Highly recommended.

I stumbled upon Rick when I requested an agent to contact me for a house on sale in Fineview, Pittsburgh. Rick returned that call. I have been interested in purchasing a rental property for over 7 years. My interest started with attending many Pittsburgh Historical Landmark neighborhood tours. During that time, I have also worked with a few realtors from different companies. Somehow, they were not a good fit due to lack of knowledge, narrow focus, etc. When Rick drove me around the different neighborhoods and gave me an overview of the market, demographics and rental opportunities available, I immediately knew he knows "his stuff". Having bought my principal home 20 years ago, I had thankfully forgotten the purchasing process involved. Rick took the time to simplify the steps and patiently guided me along the way, providing helpful advice and encouragement where needed. His real estate knowledge over a wide area, upbeat demeanor, professionalism and attention to details were much appreciated. Thank you Rick. Yuet

My boyfriend and I purchased our first home with Rick’s help. We weren’t planning to buy for some time so didn’t have an agent in place. Rick was initially the Seller’s agent but acted as a Dual agent helping us through any question we could think of while in the process of buying a home. He also reminded us throughout that this was a fun and special time. Would recommend to anyone!

As a first time home buyer, Rick could not have been more helpful throughout the entire process. He walked me through each step and made everything go as smooth as possible. He had great insight on the areas and types of homes I should be looking at based on the criteria and budget given to him. I would recommend Rick to anybody in the area and would definitely work with him again in the future.

Rick made my home buying experience as painless as possible. This was my first time purchasing a home so going in I was not sure what to expect. Rick walked me through each step, found me the right place, and made sure I had a smooth close. I would highly recommend Rick and I will certainly be reaching out to him for any of my future home purchases.

Rick handled the purchase of my ‘downsizing ‘ home. He identified a number of potential homes and ultimately the one I purchased. It was a challenging deal with multiple contingencies, challenging seller, and multiple offers on this house. Rick was great throughout the whole process - sound advice, very responsive, and very engaged in the details of the process. Having dealt with other agents in the past who communicated poorly, Rick was a refreshing change. I can’t recommend Rick strongly enough. Rick’s got a personality that will mesh with anyone and you won’t be disappointed in your experience with him!

Rick was wonderful to work with during the purchase of our first home. He listened carefully to what we were looking for and gave great insight when viewing properties. When we chose a home, he kept us informed and on schedule throughout the closing process.
