When we decided to relocate, I wanted to consult with a real estate agent who is knowledgeable of the market and knew what we needed to do to prepare our home for sale. While I know Rich Bassin personally, I had not discussed the sales process and preparation with him. During these discussions, we eventually choose Rich over the other agents with whom we also had personal relationships.
The recommendations on preparing our home for sale in a professional manner was a turnkey event. Under Rich’s supervision, the work was completed in short order and certainly added value, which was incredibly beneficial.
In short order, the home was held open on Sunday, and that was followed the next day by an astonishing offer. The transaction closed just a week later, and we were able to remain in the property until Rich completed the purchase and remodel of our new home, which again was flawless.
Without reservation, if you are interested in selling your home and or purchasing another in Atherton or Menlo Park, we feel you can do no better than Rich.
We had just arrived in Disneyland for a long-planned family vacation when I got a call from Rich Bassin. He had been meeting with prospective buyers for a house we were building to sell, and they wanted to make an offer. Because of Rich’s relationship with the buyer’s agent and his knowledge of the market, he was able to negotiate the sale of this home long before it was completed at a price and terms that made our vacation at the ‘happiest place on earth’ even happier. This is typical of the kind of service Rich has provided us during the more than 10 years he’s been our agent. He has guided us through the purchase and sale of multiple properties and has been an essential member of our team. His familiarity with the Atherton market and the real estate community here has been a huge asset to us, and I’d highly recommend him to anyone looking for the best agent to represent their interests.
Rich did a masterful job of marketing our home, particularly in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. The improvements he recommended and implemented had a dramatic impact and he worked his tail off to make sure the house was well positioned despite the challenges. He really knows the local market. We give Rich our highest recommendation.
Rich made this a very easy buy/sell transaction between friends. This is a complex property that required assembling estimates of repairs and improvements to enable its completion. He brought together an excellent group of contractors and assembled their data so that we could conclude an as is buy/sell with minimum effort on our part. His management of all the paperwork was flawless.
We have been working with Rich for well over 20 years on numerous home purchases and sales from Woodside to Palo Alto. Rich listens well and has been remarkably patient and responsive to our desires and expectations. We feel like we are part of a team each time we buy and sell. We appreciate how he limits his workload so that we always have his full attention. We trust he will do as well by you as he has for us
Rich, this was a very difficult job and you nailed it.
