Testimonials

"Richard is a consummate professional. He knows his business, and the South Boston area, inside and out. He generously donates his time and knowledge. Richard had shown me countless number of houses and spent many hours working with me. He is very willing to tackle something he has not encountered before in the 28 years he has been selling real estate, and that is a "short sale," which is what I ended up purchasing. Richard has a wonderful engaging style and manner, making him a valuable asset to anyone in the market. Simply put; I cannot imagine a better real estate agent."

"I started my condo search process in 2008 and ended up closing on the "right one" at the end of summer of 2009. Needless, to say it was a long process, Richard worked with me tirelessly throughout the whole process, making sure I went to every open house that matched my criteria in Cambridge. Richard has a great insight and understanding of Cambridge market. As a first time home buyer, I found Richard's guidance on the home buying process invaluable; he was incredibly patient and was always available to answer my numerous questions. The Cambridge market is incredibly competitive; there were five (5!) full price offers on the condo that I wanted to buy. Richard came up with a strategy that helped me put together the winning bid. Then when he found out information about the condo association that we were not aware of before my offer was accepted, he successfully negotiated a lower purchase price for me."

"We first met Richard when he worked as our agent to help us buy a condo in Boston. He was wonderful to work with, so when we needed to sell our condo a few years later, we were happy to contact him to work with us again. Richard was very helpful with suggestions for ways to decorate and present our condo and even purchased and brought over items from his own house to assist with this process. He was very patient and worked hard to show our condo frequently until it sold. He also stayed on top of the market and was able to recommend a price adjustment to help us stay competitive and sell our condo quickly. We found Richard to be extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with and would highly recommend him. "

JULIE & DARREN VOLPE

"Richard was a pleasure to work with. He took the time to understand our style and needs, and was proactive in recommending condos that suited us. He had outstanding knowledge of the J.P. area, where we were focusing our search. When we found the perfect place for us, Richard went above and beyond to make the deal happen under time pressure. He even recommended contractors to us, who we have been very pleased with. "

ERIC SANDBERG & MIA DEBROS

"For being a first time home buyer and living in Boston for my first time, "I was hesitant on who to pick for a real estate agent but after contacting Richard and meeting with him I knew he was the right person. we spent three months and looked at over 30 places looking for the right place and I eventually found just what I was looking for in my price range. Richard answered all my questions in a timely matter and was upfront with me on any place that we looked at. He never tried to sugarcoat any property like I have heard from other agents."

Even in a down market, Richard sold our condominium for way more than we had expected. We own a 2 family in Jamaica Plain and had decided to renovate it and turn each unit into a condominium. Richard sent out a post card in which he emphasized his experience in helping home owners do this, so we called him. We were very impressed with his knowledge and his willingness to help us through the whole process. He found us an architect and he kept requesting changes to the plans so that the unit would be marketable. He recommended an attorney who was experienced in handling condo conversions. And he even recommended some of the sub-contractors we ended up using. And when we were ready to put our top floor duplex on the market, Richard helped stage the condo with extra furniture we had. All in all, he was always there for us (we had many, many meetings) and then he came through for us with a great sale. Now we will be able to complete the house we are building.

ARTHUR AND JOHANNA FRONTCZAK

"I met Richard some 3 years back when I was returning to Boston for a job opportunity. My girlfriend and I had lived in Jamaica Plain before and this was a target area for us as a location to rent. We looked at a few rental properties with Richard but then decided at the last minute to buy. Richard found us a great spot that needed a little work and we purchased. Alas, another job opportunity opened up 3 years later and we used Richard to sell our property. Richard went above and beyond, we needed some minor work done . . . Richard was there, we needed staging and various inspections in our absence . . . Richard was there. With Richard’s help and some elbow grease we did very well out of that property in a short space of time I have worked in the hospitality business for 25 years and I see the commonality between a great realtor and a great restaurateur. It’s about listening, execution, building trust and delivering. Richard knocked them all out of the park. I will be working with him in the future for sure."

CHRISTIAN PAVESI

"Our desire to convert our two family property into condominiums and getting them sold was really challenging. If it were not for our Realtor, Richard Asch, we do not know how we could have managed to do this so successfully and profitably. Richard gave us a time-line, which he followed tightly; he kept reminding us about each step on the way. We cannot praise Richard enough for how he worked with us, for his attention to detail, for his marketing skills, and for playing with our daughter Sophie."

DAVID HANSON

"We were first time home buyers, and Richard guided us through the entire process with a calm and wise approach. Richard has a detailed knowledge of real estate in the area; he was generous with his time, took us to viewings in a variety of neighborhoods, and helped us find the right type of home for us within our price range. Richard has a wealth of connections and provided excellent recommendations for everything from a real estate lawyer to a home inspector. Richard stayed on top of the logistics, kept us apprised of next steps, and guided us through tasks that we needed to complete. Richard was right there with us from the brainstorming phase all the way to closing."
