    My Client Testimonials

    Dear Rick, Thank you so much for your help with buying our home. You made the process simple and easy to understand for us, and we appreciated your patience and expertise. Your insight was extremely valuable to us and I don't think we could have done this without you. Once again thank you. ~ william gamez Columbus GA
    This was my first purchase of a home and Rick Gonzalez made the process easy and stress free. He is very knowledgeable of the market and ensured safety and what I wanted in my first home was top of mind. ~ N. Pierre
    Rick not only took on two of our houses at the same time, but dealt with both my husband and I living out of state. He was friendly and professional throughout the entire experience. I contacted him several months before we were ready to put the houses on the market and he talked me through a few options. When I reengaged with him, months later, he still remembered all the details we had spoken about and was ready to move with placing the houses on the market. We all had different working hours, but he made it work easily, staying in contact with us via phone, email and text. Both houses sold in no time at all and he made all the paperwork effortless. We were out of state throughout the entire process and Rick was kind enough to take on everything from start to finish on our behalf. I can not stress enough how amazing he is to work with and would recommend Rick Gonzalez to anyone wanting to buy or sell their house(s)! ~ Wendy Wright, Maine
    I highly recommend Rick to anyone specially those new to the area like me. He have a profound knowledge about the area and works to exceed his clients expectations.

Once again I recommend Rick to anyone looking to buy a house. ~ Leyikun E Admite

    My Wife and I are out of state investors and found Rick Gonzalez online. We chose Rick because he had experience working with investors in the past, is very knowledgeable with the Phenix City/Columbus area, has over 20 years experience as a Realtor, as well as experience as a lender. He also has a great team of people he recommended for our loan, repairs and property management needs Rick was outstanding from first introduction to continued commutation after closing. Rick did live video tours for us on the properties we looked at. He did a great job negotiating for us on our deal, including the seller agreeing to put a new roof on the property. Rick was very professional, friendly and trustworthy. He communicated often and clearly. We will be using Rick for any of our future real estate needs. ~ Cameron M
    Rick was very helpful, friendly and respectful when showing us homes. He always communicated with us about the progress of the house and with the progress of settlement. He provided us with recommendations for surveyors, homeowners insurance agents and with the phone numbers for local water and electric company. Anytime we ask for something, he always responded. ~ John DeBickes, Rockledge, FL
    I would highly recommend Rick Gonzales as your broker. He knows the area like the back of his hand, is extremely reliable and professional, and very personable. I consider him as a personal friend that I would call with any property needs such as purchasing or selling. He has your best interest in mind and will go the extra mile for you! ~ Birgit and Terry Stokes, Columbus, GA
    Rick helped me buy my first house, sell that house, and buy a new house. Rick made sure all of these went smoothly and were stress free. I would recommend Rick to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home! ~ Grace Shackelford, Columbus, GA
    Rick was chosen by a potential employer to help show my wife the area around Auburn and Columbus. Rick spent the weekend showing us homes and informing us of the area and communities even though we weren't initially moving. I think this showed a lot about his dedication to his career in that where most would have dismissed my wife and I, Rick continued to act as if this situation was normal and asked questions and tried to understand our situation better. The interaction before we had an offer was the reason we chose to stay with Rick. We felt another realtor wouldn't provide the same service and knowledge of such a broad geographical area. ~ Tibbles family
    Rick always followed up with the agents who showed the property. He communicated well with me even when the news wasnt necessarily great. He helped me make corrections to keep the house in the best light to the buying public. I always felt that my home was constantly being reviewed by him. He did not just list it and forget it. He got the job done! ~ Martha Linn
    Rick Gonzalez made my home's purchase an easy and quick process. He was very patient, kind and understandable. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends and will be looking for his advice if I decide to buy/sell a house in the future. I apologize for the delay on taking this survey. I know it means a lot to you. Richard is able to speak another language, that was a plus that made the purchase process go smoothly. He was able to explain things to me in a way that others couldn't and work around my tight schedule. Thank you for everything Richard! ~ Dayanna Sanchez
    We live in California and needed to sell our investment property in Columbus. We purchased the property over 15 years ago and had done minimal maintenance while it was being rented. Over the course of over three months, Rick single handedly managed the rehab and update of the entire house. Rick coordinated vendors, contractors, and delivery personnel resulting in a 100% return on investment. We received multiple offers in our first ten days on the market and decided on an offer that was several thousand over asking. I can not say enough good things about Rick. Rick's ability to communicate in Spanish was also an asset when coordinating both general and specialty laborers. Thanks Rick! ~ Sergio, Beaumont, CA
    Being a military and now civil service family, we are mobile and often require expert Real Estate services to buy and sell the homes we live in and make our own for the time we are assigned to a given location. Rick Gonzalez represented us in the sale of our property in the Ft Benning (Midland) Georgia area, a sale that was challenged by the somewhat volatile market there at the time of our sale. Throughout the sale process, Rick stayed in touch with us, literally half a world and 13 time zones away representing our sales needs in an honest, trustworthy fashion going above and beyond to ensure the successful sale of our property for the best price achievable within the market at the time of sale. Being part of the military family himself, Rick understood our needs more than most and went out of his way to coordinate maintenance and repairs on our behalf as absentee sellers coordinating the best work for the best prices in the Columbus market place. Yong and I will always consider Rick as a family friend and recommend his service excellence to anyone buying or selling in the greater Columbus/Ft Benning commuting area. ~ David and Yong Fortune Pyeongteak Korea
    Rick handled the sale of my mother-in-law's house. We live across the country and Rick was incredibly helpful in sourcing the necessary inspections (termite/septic/pool). He went above and beyond to help us brainstorm the best and most cost-effective strategy for dealing with a home with some disrepair. It was refreshing to work with someone who was undaunted by the task and didn't simply ask us to remodel the home to make selling it easier. We had a fair amount of bumps with the buyer's lender and Rick applied the right amount of pressure at the right time to keep the process moving forward. I don't know how we could have got this sale done from a distance without Rick's help. ~ Lisa from Seattle,WA
    Rick Gonzalez is the only realtor we would use if we were purchasing in this area again. He's hardworking and honest and was able to find the best house for us when we purchased. Fast forward three years and we're ready to sell and he's the only choice we can make. He gave us great advice and recommended certain things which netted us a fantastic profit on a home we only owned for three years. We would recommend Rick to anyone looking for a fantastic realtor who will work hard for the buyer or seller of a home! ~ Nick K. - Columbus, GA
    Rick was always polite and friendly. He always made himself available and was very helpful in the process. Rick is a very trustworthy person and you know that because of how honest he is about the houses, contracts, etc. He was very quick throughout the whole process and was able to explain everything that was going on. He was very patient in answering all of my questions and made sure I knew that he was available to answer any questions or go over information that I needed! ~ Carra Glenn
    My wife and I were looking to buy our first home, and Rick Gonzalez went out of his way to look out for our best interests. Rick was available any time, nights or weekends, and he always responded quickly. Overall, our first home purchase was an outstanding experience with Rick Gonzalez and the Century 21 team. ~ Zachary Ferris, Fort Mitchell, AL
    I found his name when looking for rentals, called and he sounded reassuring and knowledgeable about the area. I asked him why he was posting an ad for a rental and he said he was "helping a friend out" and that is what sold me. A friend had suggested I try his agent and when I contacted her, she seemed too busy and I knew I wouldn't be her priority, so I went with Rick because I knew he would prioritize me! I needed a house fast, I needed an exceptionally speedy process and it needed to happen through Christmas and the New Year. This team had to work with all of those time constraints, they were willing to move at the pace that my relocation to Ft. Benning demanded. I put the offer in on 15 December 2018 and I wanted to close on 4 January 2019 and the team delivered, we all sat down at the table together at closing without a single issue. Great experience!! ~ Dr. Vallis, Columbus GA
    For purchasing a home for the first time, rick made everything so easy. He broke everything down that way I can understand the process and taught me a lot during the whole process. I couldnt have asked for a better person to represent me and to handle my first home purchase, thank you rick and you assistant, you guys are great and I send everyone I kno selling or purchasing and home your way. ~ Meleke Gordon columbus GA
    Wayne McCutchen in Midland, Ga.

    This was my first time purchasing a home and Rick did an amazing job helping my wife and I navigate some tough situations. Thanks for support and awesome customer service. ~ Anthony and Felicia Hayes
    Rick Gonzalez is awesome!!! From start to finish, he kept me informed, gave me solid advice, and had my best interests at heart. I thought I knew exactly what I was looking for in a home...clearly I did not! Lol! But Rick never hesitated to take me to any and every home I wanted to look at, until I found MY home. He was always courteous and professional, and honest and upfront throughout the whole process. As a contractor working overseas, even with the 9 1/2 hr time difference, Rick managed to always keep me posted, every step of the way. As a customer, that's the level of service you deserve. Rick Gonzalez made it his business to go above and beyond that. Thanks for everything Rick! ~ Chris Hunter - Columbus, Ga.

    I had my house listed with another agent I was not pleased with this agent Mr. Gonzalez showed my house three times while it was listed and as we talked he was very complementary of my home and said he would love to sell it I was impressed with him showing it several times and also his determination I found him very personable and felt that he would do an excellent job if I relisted it at the end of my contract Therefore after my contract ended I contacted Mr. Gonzalez and he came to the house and showed me what he would be doing in an effort to sell my house I was very impressed and he was very knowledgeable Very impressed with all of the pictures he posted with a charming description of each room especially referring to the southern charm. Of my historic home. He also had an open house and had a good turnout. No cleanup for me ~ Vicki Pample
    Rick Gonzales is an outstanding broker and person! I feel he is the best there could be. Our loan officer took months to get us closed on our house and I think he still wouldn't have if it weren't for Rick. Rick stuck with us the entire time and did everything in his power to help. He listened to our concerns and helped us through them. He talked us through every step of the purchase. He called the loan officer and was an advocate for us when we couldn't call the loan officer or we didn't know what to say to him Rick knew and took care of it all. He knows his business and the areas he works well! We can't thank him enough for all he did for us!! ~ Pearlie Peterson Phenix city, Alabama
    I would recommend Rick Gonzalez to anyone. Actually I already have and he's working with a dear friend of mine on his family's first home purchase. Rick is a very knowledgeable person. I'd recommend him to a new buyer or a seasoned vet. He knows exactly what steps to take to get you where you need to be before, during, and after the purchasing process. Rick also has friends in a lot of different trades that saved me A LOT of money such as home inspectors, septic inspectors, and termite inspectors just to name a few. You won't be sorry if you choose Rick to be your realtor. He's a honest man and you can't go wrong. ~ Michael, Russell County, AL
