He was a very responsive communicator and had our personal goals in mind during the process. I have worked with him twice now and things went smoothly both times.
He was extremely patient with us as we navigated the market, and helped us to find a home that fit all of our needs. When the time came to sell that home, he was the first person that came to mind. He walked us through every step of the selling process, and helped us to identify the best offer in this crazy market. He's now assisting us in creating our next dream home - serving as our advocate, and often a voice of reason. In each interaction, Rick shares a genuine interest in our success as homeowners, and is truly a pleasure to work with. We look forward to working with him for each of our future transactions.
We were very pleased with all aspects of his services including cost on both transactions. Rick is our go to guy when we need to buy or sell real estate in Maine.
He was extremely helpful in making sure we knew what we were seeing when we viewed various properties. I was very impressed with his negotiating skills and I would definitely work with him again in the future. I would recommend him highly to anyone venturing into the real estate market, buying or selling.
In an extremely tight market, his strategic negotiation skills were instrumental in having my offer accepted on a very competitive, waterfront home on Sebago Lake. Not only does Rick possess extensive knowledge of the surrounding area, his holistic approach to evaluating the value and potential of any given property gave me immediate confidence in his services. After working with him for several months, his level of engagement, superior customer service, and thoughtful perspective led to trust quickly being established in the relationship. Overall, I really enjoyed working with Rick and feel quite fortunate that he represented me and my family during this process.
! He helped us find our perfect forever home. Can’t thank him enough.
He helped us navigate through all the home buying items and we were able to close quickly. Thank you
We feel very fortunate to have had Rick Yost as our agent. He is very patient and friendly and helped us feel reassured about the decisions we were making. His tremendous RE knowledge and specific knowledge of the town, neighborhood and home that we were considering was always very helpful. He is always responsive and very accommodating as far as scheduling or attending open houses, property visits and related enquiries that we may have had. Even after close of escrow he has offered to help us and remain in contact in case questions arise. Thank you Rick!
He didn’t waste any time listing the home and within a month the home was under contract. Rick is a great communicator and will do whatever it takes to make selling your home quick and stress-free. I highly recommend his expertise if you are thinking about selling your home!
He was very proactive and had our best interests at heart. He was always on time and worked really hard to arrange showings around our crazy schedules. We were not easy clients but he found us the perfect house with the ultimate garage.
He truly cared about making sure we were getting a good deal, a good home, and was always available and very responsive along the entire process (even answering our questions at 9pm). I would recommend Rick to anyone looking to buy a home in the Windham area - he makes going through the buying process much less painful with his professionalism and clear expertise.
He was always available, nights and weekends to answer questions and was always searching for new listings. Most importantly he did not pressure us to view any properties that was beyond our price range. He is quick to respond for viewing requests and can schedule multiple viewings in one day. Rick was in constant contact with us on the fast moving real estate market. I would call Rick for any further real estate needs in the future, he would be my only choice. Rick Yost was not only our real estate agent but, he is now our friend.
?????process could not have been better! THANKS Rick!
!! Would Definitely Recommend! Now the hard part, PACKING!
My wife Pauline and I couldn't be happier The photo presentation was exceptional. Rick is very personable and helped us greatly with procedure and expectations through the entire process. Bottom line, we sold at the price we wanted. We would recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell. We're confident they will be happy with the outcome. Sincerely, Gerry Lavery
Rick Yost just recently assisted me with selling a property in Portland, Maine. This is the second property Mr. Yost has sold on my behalf over the past four years. During this time I have watched him carefully and methodically ensure that my properties received the best possible exposure, best legal paper work and most importantly the best price! When it was time for negotiations, paper work and dealing with closing companies and banks Rick ensured all aspects moved forward in a timely fashion. Rick has a very clear and deep understanding of all aspects of real estate law and maintains a strong, positive relationship with the companies that service the real estate market. I am completely satisfied with all of Rick’s diligence and appreciate his professional attitude and work ethic. I felt very fortunate for Rick’s expertise and experience guiding the sale of both properties! I confidently recommend Rick 100% and will absolutely look to his excellent skill set whether I buy or sell property again!
He helped us with both the sale of our house and the purchase of another. He was very professional and knowledgeable throughout the process of selling. He was also relentless in the pursuit of another home for us. He never made us feel like we were asking too much of him (even though I'm sure we did). I thought the process was going to be very difficult, after living in the same home for 24 years, but Rick made it easier. Rick also assisted us in finding other professionals to help us with the other tasks associated with the purchase and sale of a house, including, mortgage brokers, home inspectors and others. His knowledge and guidance was unmatched. I would recommend that if you need help with the purchase or sale of your house you should consider Rick as the guy to go to!
He knew the market very well and made our offers competitive as possible. He also was great in explaining things throughout our first home buying experience.
Rick was very attentive and knowledgeable of the market and kept me i formed every step of the way. Rick made himself available at anytime to answer and questions or concerns I had regarding the process or status of the home buying process. Rick has an excellent attitude and very easy to work with. Highly recommended!
Right from the start, Rick was engaged, reassuring, knowledgeable and the communication was spot on. This transaction was a little more tricky because we were out of state. Rick quickly and professionally handled a few small issues on our behalf to keep the transaction moving along. Thank you Rick! I highly recommend!
New to the lakes region, I selected Rick based on online reviews. He is a real pro! And great to work with. Not sure this deal would have gotten done without his experience. Highly recommended!
He was knowledgeable of the market in our area. Rick was patient with us while we took our time to sell when we were fully ready. We never felt pushed or rushed from Rick. He was supportive and flexible to our needs. I would HIGHLY recommend Rick and would be more than happy to work with him again!
He recently helped me sell and buy a house with a simultaneous close and he was there the whole way keeping me up to date on all information. Rick is an excellent realtor with great knowledge and knowhow and is always there to respond to questions and concerns. I will be sure to use Rick again in the future when it is time to buy the next house!
Professional in his industry and very easy get along with, felt that I had known him already for years!
He has always been fair, knew the market, did honest work for us finding a house we wanted. I highly recommend him for anyone in the area. He knows how to get the deal done in this competitive market with very low inventory. He is also very likeable, answers all questions promptly and accurately. Thanks Rick!!
He also provided a lot of knowledge as a broker and listen to what we wanted in a home. I would recommend Rick 100%.
He priced the property such that it generated several offers. The offer accepted was $25K (7%) above the asking price. There was a title issue from when I purchased the property in 2017. Rick sorted it out quickly and completely, so that the closing was not delayed. Rick is very professional, knowledgeable, upbeat and responsive. Every time I reached out to Rick with a question or concern, he got back to me ASAP. I cannot say enough good things about Rick Yost. If you choose Rick to help you sell or buy a property, you will not be disappointed.
We had been looking for a specific lake front home for about a year and Rick assisted us all along the way. Once we found a home with the potential we had been looking for, Rick got our home at the time sold so fast! We then had many delays in the purchase of the new home due to the renovation needed and Rick worked closely with the seller's realtor to ensure we would not lose our purchase. It took about two and a half months and Rick worked very hard for us not to lose out on this home and we can't thank him enough! We are now closed and underway with our renovation!!
He has been a complete professional, He has brought qualified buyers to the table quickly, located new properties for us to acquire and has provided solid guidance and advice through every transaction. He truly listened to what we wanted and found a way to accomplish our goals.
He was knowledgeable, communication was incredibly easy and we always felt like a top priority.
Will work with you again very soon. Anytime of day he can be reach for any questions or concerns. Thank you again.
He has answered all questions and helped with every request along the way making the buying process very smooth. He even helped us move our refrigerator before getting our floors refinished! What a guy! Thank you Rick! We will definitely recommend you to anyone who needs a dedicated RE agent. Leslie and Jim
As first time homebuyers my husband and I had lots of questions, and were often lost going into every part of the process. Rick always answered our questions thoroughly and promptly and really helped us understand things. He truly had our best interest at heart and goes above and beyond! I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell!
We are currently working with Rick to find another property, he listens to your needs, is VERY responsive and you don't waste your time looking at properties that don't fit your needs. I will continue to use Rick and you should too !
I have bought and sold homes in the past, my sale with Rick was by far the smoothest thanks to his patience, understanding and expertise. I highly recommend Rick to anyone looking to have an experienced and down to earth broker who will make the process easier for you and take as much of the process off your plate as possible. Thanks again Rick!
Knowledge of market availability and pricing. Made For a smooth transaction.
We highly recommend Rick if you are looking for a realtor to help you sell your home.
He negotiated a great price which made myself and the buyers comfortable with the transaction and no uncertainty along the way. If you need a solid negotiator with realistic market knowledge, Rick is the person to assist in selling your home. Don’t let other agents inflate the price of your home just to earn your business, choose Rick to get the job done right!
His knowledge and expertise was evident throughout the entire process, and everything under his control went smoothly. I can't provide a higher recommendation for this outstanding real estate professional.
com. It didn't take long to realize that he would be a true advocate for us on our buy/sell mission. As first-time sellers, there were more moving parts for us to worry about. Rick was incredibly patient with us as we moved from discussing to closing. He marketed our existing home with an aggressive plan, including showings and an open house. Above all, Rick was open, honest, and upfront with us whenever we had a topic to cover. Even though I know Rick had other, bigger real estate clients he was representing, he ALWAYS made us feel like we were his most important customers. He was 100% responsive, even with our difficult work schedules and non-standard hours. Bottom line: We were crunched for time and tight on money. Rick ensured that our sale and purchase went off without any problems. He also went above and beyond the call of duty after the transactions were complete with a housewarming and holiday gift. Rick has our utmost thanks and appreciation for all that he did to get us into our new home.
!! Rick has a long history in this area and has a thorough understanding of the market. We depended upon him for insight on what to look for, and what to look out for. He made the process easy by connecting us with the lender and getting inspections and appraisals done and also recommended great contractors to assist with improvement projects. Great communication through the entire process. Quick and painless. Totally trustworthy, professional and friendly guy!
