testimonials & clients
Rick was immediately responsive and had the local knowledge needed to provide an excellent service.
An excellent experience! Rick was immediately responsive and had the local knowledge needed to provide an excellent service. He assisted us with the listing and rehabilitation of our rental property to maximize its potential. This in turn provided a quick sale at an excellent price. I would highly recommend Rick!
Rick promised to make the sale as easy as possible for us and he accomplished that perfectly.
Our experience with Rick Karvasales as our Real Estate agent to sell our condo at Brickyard Landing in Point Richmond CA was exceptional. First Rick established a nice relationship with tenants who were having to move because of the sale. Immediately Rick arranged two back to back very successful open houses and received an above asking price offer within days. Communication was mostly by phone, e-mail and text, perfect for us as we work at Lake Tahoe in the winter. Rick was in touch every step of the way thru to the close of escrow. We really appreciated Docu-Sign. Rick promised to make the sale as easy as possible for us and he accomplished that perfectly.
We feel like we really won the lotto in working with Rick, and can’t recommend him highly enough.
Rick made all the difference in us buying our first home. Trying to buy in the bay area market is daunting at the best of times, and Rick’s knowledge of the market and area history was superlative and put us at ease while we were searching.
Rick is a rare Realtor. We literally could not have just sold our house without him.
He’s super knowledgeable about the market–and all the ins and outs of the business as well as what’s necessary to fix up your house to help it sell.
More than that–he is also one of the most trustworthy people I’ve ever met. Here’s a story to prove it; we first met when we were looking for a house–the house we just sold 28 years later.
We’d found a house we liked under the redwoods, and Rick said, “You guys are going to be cold in this house. I want to make sure you’re comfortable, so, if you buy it, I’ll buy you a new heating system out of my commission.”
Who does that? Only an honest, caring human being.
Keen market awareness, attention to detail, a dedicated and relentless work ethic, prompt follow-up, and unquestioned ethics
Over the course of several years I’ve worked closely with a number of realtors with different firms in the sale and purchase of 6 residential properties, including condos, town homes and single family residences. It takes a diverse skill-set to be successful: keen market awareness, attention to detail, a dedicated and relentless work ethic, prompt follow-up, and unquestioned ethics and honesty to rise to the top of a crowded field. While I’ve been fortunate to work with some good realtors, Tracy White is by far the best, and ranks as exceptional in all criteria, consistently going above and beyond whats necessary to accommodate her clients needs, not to mention she’s very much a pleasure to work with.
Honesty, integrity, and tenacity in making sure the sale went smoothly
Upon retirement, my husband and I decided to purchase a second home in the Bay Area (ideally with a beautiful view of SF). Not only did we find the perfect condo with spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline, but we also met the nicest, most knowledgeable and helpful agent we’d dealt with while searching for our condo over the previous year. Margi’s honesty, integrity, and tenacity in making sure all of the details of the sale went smoothly, made our home purchase “a dream” (something that can often become a nightmare if handled by an inept agent). I highly recommend her to anyone either looking for a home or wishing to sell theirs…she’s a fantastic agent…truly the best!!!

Successful in obtaining top dollar for my properties
Rick has represented me in eight separate real estate transactions. Rick works well under pressure and was successful in obtaining top dollar for my properties.
Thank you for all of the work you did in selling our house
I just wanted to thank you for all of the work you did in selling our house. It was a lot of work – I know. The day after I listed the property with you I left the state not to return. You staged the property, arranged to have some contents shipped to me and the rest sold. The entire transaction was completed so that I did not have to return to Pt. Richmond. That was so important to me because I did not want to take time away from my family and my job. Best regards to you and your family.

Truly a delight to work with
Rick sold our home in Novato California and represented us in purchasing a home in Bend Oregon. He is the best real estate agent you could hope to work with. He made us aware of any hurdle we might encounter before it appeared. He was spot on throughout the transaction. We had encountered problems with other Real estate agents in the past and are so delighted we found Rick. Rick lets you know, what, when and how things are going to unfold. Truly a delight to work with.

Six offers from the first open house is a testament to their professionalism and experience
We first met Margi at an open house. She was very helpful to us, describing areas that we might be interested in looking, as well as some history and trends. Over time, we started working with Tracy. Tracy was also a huge help in our search and had the patience of a saint! After two years looking for a house, we ended up changing gears at the last minute and buying a condo that Tracy pointed us at. Her judgement was ‘spot on’ and we are very happy our new place and with her and the whole process. Margi and Tracy also staged and helped us sell our previous home. Six offers from the first open house is a testament to their professionalism and experience. But perhaps what we like most about working with them is their easygoing manner and friendly ways.

What could have been very stressful transactions ended up being very smooth
Rick is a wonderful real estate agent who has helped us with four separate real estate transactions. We are so happy he was involved in the sale of our home and the purchasing of three other properties. What could have been very stressful transactions ended up being very smooth. Rick is an excellent communicator and we would highly recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling a property.

Ideal rental at Brickyard Landing
Thank you so much for finding me an ideal rental at Brickyard Landing! As I lived out of town, I needed someone who would give me the straight scoop on the area and features of the condo. When I arrived, I found the condo to be even better than I had anticipated. You also arranged for me to move-in a few days early which made for an easy move. I would be happy to refer other clients to you and if you have anyone who would like confirmation of your abilities as a real estate broker, I would be pleased to refer you!
