Rick Sauer - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

We interviewed three realtors when we had to list our home because of a job transfer out of state.

Of the three realtors, Rick offered every service possible that would make our home available online with not only several high quality pictures, but also video, drone pictures/video, night pictures and video, and a doll-house type interactive walk through. With the inventory of homes being so low and houses were selling quickly, Rick still offered all of the above in order to market the house. We had three days of showings between 9-5pm. After three days, we had 19 showings, and 9 offers by the following day. We had to go no further we chose one of the offers, and Rick did what we needed to have done in order to have a 45 day closing along with one month rent back. We also received over 11% over asking price. We have had a few snags, as almost every real estate sale has, but Rick worked them out between the buyers realtor, and we have all come to a desirable outcome. I would recommend Rick if you need to sell your home.

A consummate professional!

I have bought and sold multiple homes in 4 states using multiple agents. Rick stands out as by far the most professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and honest agent I have ever worked with. At every stage of the sales and purchase process Rick displayed outstanding knowledge and expertise and provided only the absolute best and most practical advice. I have bought or sold 3 homes with Rick, and I unreservedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

"We worked with Rick to buy a single family home and sell our two condos. He sold our two condos for well over what we imagined we would get for them in a matter of days, and worked to secure our dream house. Rick is a strong advocate and helped us make the right decision every step of the way, and was always available to answer our questions. We truly appreciated his hard work for us and we highly recommend him to everyone."

"Rick Sauer is extremely professional and his knowledge of the market is accurate. Rick was also the only agent that presented us with impressive marketing materials such as day and twilight photography, drone photography and classy printed materials. Rick continually proved to have excellent communication skills and is trustworthy, his actions are true to his words. During our sale, Rick demonstrated the ability to handle any situation and obstacles that we know any other agent wouldn’t have been able to resolve. He is highly experienced and provided solid guidance while always having his great personality and calm demeanor shine through. With Rick, you will achieve total success and never look to any other agent again."

"Rick Sauer with Windermere Homes & Estates was truly exceptional. I met him through a trusted friend, and I was impressed with his level of knowledge and the amount of data that he had about the market. I was interested in selling a family member's condo who was moved into assisted living, and had not maintained the property; the family wanted to sell the condo as is, since we were not in the position to put in the time or money required to sell at the market rate. Obviously, making informed decisions is the most important part of selling a home. The condo needed to be sold in a short period of time, and Rick suggested listing it as an investment property to best meet our needs. Rick had previously helped sell a home in a very similar situation, and I trusted his guidance. Rick went above and beyond, to ensure the property was listed with the best possible description and photos. Before listing the condo, Rick suggested cleaning out the clutter and garbage that was left in the condo to get the best offer possible. When there were concerns about how the property looked inside, Rick offered to remove trash to improve the showing- who does that? But this just speaks to his commitment to making sure we were well taken care of. He listed the condo, and had two offers immediately; he discussed the pros and cons of each offer with me, and I took Rick's suggestion, leading to a straightforward cash sale, and quick close of escrow. His cool, calm mindset kept my anxiety low and gave me the confidence he would get the job done – and he did! First meeting to close of escrow in 3 weeks! I have bought and sold properties before, and I can honestly say that Rick was ALWAYS available for me to answer questions, and ensure other agents were able to tour the condo. Rick made me feel at ease with the whole process, and demonstrated empathy and compassion for the challenging situation I was dealing with. Rick's responsiveness was incredible. If he didn't pick up, he always called back no longer than 5 minutes later, or if I texted him a question, he would often respond in 2 minutes or less. Seriously. I was selling the condo as is, and time was of the essence; Rick understood the current market, and understood the price needed. The delivery of the information was straightforward: present the info and talk about pros/cons/strategy for moving forward. He really cared about our family, and needs in a difficult situation – I felt like he looked out for me and had my best interests in mind. I truly appreciated his input and relied on it heavily. This is an invaluable quality to have as a service provider and not everyone has it. It’s easy to push paper and get the signatures, but Rick is really focused on making sure people are satisfied through the process and with the outcome. But as you can see, based on the above, Rick went above and beyond (as I’m positive he does with all of his clients) and truly made me feel like I had a partner throughout. Rick Sauer is AWESOME! He made the selling process so easy and helped me understand what was happening every step of the way. Rick Sauer will work with you to make your desires a reality. Rick is also very well versed at dealing with other real estate agents. His promptness, knowledge of the market, strategic mindset, kindness, and good energy made a potentially chaotic sale process simple. I've already recommended him to two of my good friends, and if looking to buy or sell again I will not hesitate to call Rick Sauer.Looking for the best Realtor who “does more”—and makes you feel like your needs are first priority-Rick Sauer is your person. Thank you so much, Rick! Mona A.Poway, CA"

"Rick assisted us with selling our condo in August 2023; and, we highly recommend him. Working with him was a complete pleasure from start to finish. First of all, his staging firm did a wonderful job with providing staging furnishings that made the place 'pop'. Thanks to Rick's expertise and relationships with local realtors, we accepted an offer on the condo within two days of listing it, were able to chose from multiple competing offers; and, appreciated his efficient involvement in a smooth close of escrow. With a stressful transaction such as selling a property, we truly appreciated the way his calm, personable, professional, efficient approach to all details allowed for a drama free sale."

"We were going through a relocation so there were a few extra hoops that Rick needed to jump through with the relocation company and he handled everything professionally, keeping us informed of status, progress, showings, etc. Rick comes across as mild mannered but don't let that fool you. He knows what to do and gets it done."
