Endorsements for Darin Rich, RE/MAX REALTY GROUP

Yes, I am Darin's brother but my review comes without bias and full confidence. It had been over 20 years since my last purchase and I knew much had changed and the proper guidance was going to be a necessity. However, my first question to Darin was why does anyone even need an agent anymore. Between all of the real estate websites and open houses it would seem that it's all at our fingertips. I quickly learned why having a savvy agent was critical to a successful outcome. It begins fundamentally with education and communication. As accessible as information is on the internet nothing compares to the experience of a well seasoned agent that has history in the market. Zillow just can't give you that. Darin was able to educate us on the nuances of the market and before long we found the perfect house that met all of our needs. Before writing a contract he explained what our obligations were as well as the monetary things we, as buyers, should not be hesitant to ask for. Without Darin's knowledge of the sellers needs and concessions he believed would be appropriate to ask for our purchase may have been unattainable. Darin was able to submit a contract that not only worked for us financially but also worked for the sellers. It all happened so fast and efficiently that I continually waited for the other shoe to drop. Throughout the process Darin explained in detail every aspect of the contract and, most importantly, why he drafted it the way he did. Now of course, being his brother, I entrusted him with a lot more of the decisions than most probably would, but in the end it was the smartest thing I could have done and the results were favorable to all parties. My loan was challenging primarily because I picked the wrong broker. It took an excessive amount of time which caused a lot of anxiety for everyone involved. Darin's job was made more complex because he had to answer to the sellers agent as to why the loan was taking so long. It was a balancing act of keeping the sellers confident that we would come through and convincing them not to terminate the contract. All total Darin was able to garner 8 contract extensions over the course of four months. That is next to impossible for any agent in a market as active as it was. It was handled with grace, intelligence and extraordinary communication skill. Additionally, he worked closely with the loan officer to facilitate the loan which, as I understand it, isn't typically in the scope of the agents responsibilities. He advocated for me whenever possible and relentlessly pursued the broker for answers when they became unresponsive. He managed the situation as I never could of and, believe me, that's not an easy thing for a brother to admit. We are now two weeks into our new home and I can say without hesitation that the best thing that ever could have happened was retaining Darin to represent us. - Brian Rich

"If you read Darin's overview, he describes himself as passionate, dedicated, genuine, and honest. Throughout the process of selling our home, we found Darin to be all of those things and more. He was very patient and took time to ensure we understood every detail and that we were fully educated on all aspects of the process. Darin communicates regularly and is responsive when contacted. He makes you feel as though you?re his only client and that all of his time and attention is focused on your needs. Selling a home and moving can be stressful. We found the sale of our home to be the easiest part of our move, thanks to Darin?s efforts and dedication. Don?t look any further. Call Darin now if you have a need!" - J. Cypriano

"Meeting Darin Rich was one of the greatest things that had happened in my journey, buying my first house. Darin is a very professional, very detail oriented, experienced and mindful realtor. He used his experience/ knowledge and exerted 100% effort making this process less stressful and more enjoyable. Any time he observed a potential problem he quickly communicated it to me with transparency. He always provided viable alternatives to deal with whatever problem came across. Darin always had time to listen and answer questions/concerns, time to come and show properties which I greatly appreciated. I always felt strongly supported by him. When it comes to negotiations, he was on my side all the way. He is a great human being and I was so lucky to have him as my agent. I strongly recommended him as you realtor, you won?t regret!" -Ruty R

- Client Testimonial

"Darin is an amazing real estate agent! He is extremely hardworking and puts his clients needs above any commission or fees. When looking at homes, Darin selected homes that were in the area and price range that I was looking at, rather than waste time going for a "big sale." If I needed any additional information from another agent or specifics on a property, Darin was able to get it to me very quickly and had great insight on the local market and what to look for within a home. During the negotiation and closing process, it was Darin's expertise that enabled us to get the number we were looking for and was there every step of the way. I felt like Darin was representing our needs as buyers, and not his agency or even the sellers needs (which has happened to me on a few occasions.) Darin is an exceptional realtor on all levels!" -Curtis F

- Client Testimonial

"Darin is the type of guy who calls you after the sale just to say hello. My wife and I met Darin years ago and when it was time to sell our house we interviewed him. He was nice and very down to earth so we hired him. He told us what to do to get our house ready for sale and together we agreed on a price. 6 days later the house had a very strong offer on it $2000 above asking price. Then our search for our new house began. Half way through we had a falling out with our banker and Darin really stepped up. In days we had a new banker and were told what to do to fix the problem. Now very behind with only 5 weeks to closing on our house Darin showed us the house we wanted. He never showed us houses we could not afford and was very mindful of the things we needed. the house was exactly what we asked for. Now the offer, he showed us ways to write the contract to insure we would get it. He also worked out things with our new owners so we would not have to live in a hotel and everything worked out. I am very grateful to Darin for all his work on getting us this house. I have already recommended him to several people." -Don S

- Client Testimonial

"Darin helped us sell our home and look for/purchase a new home. He was involved in the whole process of helping us to make our current home ready to sell with his expertise of the current buyers' needs. He was able to negotiate with buyers' agents to get us the best possible deal. We had a wonderful experience both selling and buying our homes. Darin knows what to look for in terms of contractors, lenders, and inspectors to help make a sound purchase for our family. Darin is personable with other agents and buyers. We cannot recommend him enough to all our family and friends. If you want a professional, knowledgeable, and friendly agent, Darin is your agent!" -John M

- Client Testimonial

"My family moved around quite a bit so we?ve had lots of experience working with realtors to buy and sell homes, and I have to say that, of all the ones we?ve worked with and met at the hundreds of open houses we had attended, that we really lucked out with Darin. He is a truly caring person, and is a great communicator. He listens well to what we have to say, and is very tactful/diplomatic in telling us what we must know, but might not want to hear. That is to say he is a very good negotiator. He is also a highly ethical person ? he did not suggest we use certain tactics to buy our house that we had heard of from others and that we felt were "iffy". I highly recommend Darin, whether you are selling or buying, and would be a return customer when it comes time for our next move." -Marie Q

"Darin was everything a seller could ask for in a real estate agent. He provided wise advice, and did so in such a way that he made me want to follow that advice (yes, it is possible that someone on earth might know something I don't know). He kept me informed of events in the process, and he managed it over the phone, over two time zones, without waking me up even once. He managed my meltdowns with grace and kindness, understanding that I was selling a house that had been in the family over 60 years. If you need strength, wisdom and caring in your real estate agent, please contact Darin Rich immediately." -Nancy B

- Client Testimonial

"Darin goes above and beyond to help out before, during and after the sale. He is very knowledgeable on real estate issues and gives honest and valuable opinions on housing and neighborhoods. He listens to what you want as a buyer and really goes the extra mile to help you find a house that you can call home. Very lucky to have found him and definitely recommend him to anyone needing an agent to work with whether buying or selling. Darin is honest and hard working and really cares about his clients. We had a problem a few years after the purchase of our home with the extra lot included in the sale. The listing/selling agent said it wasn't her problem and would not help but Darin as the buying agent went above and beyond and helped us settle the issue quickly. Because of this we are deeply indebted to him and will gladly use his services again should the need arise." -M VanDine

- Client Testimonial

"Very positive! The sale of my dad's house was done long distance, and Darin did a super job, up to and including coming over to clean the house after the people who were hired to clean did a poor job. My dad had used him for the sale of a rental unit a few years earlier. Darin offered great advice and had a lot of contacts for getting needed work done. Darin was persuasive in getting me to spend $50,000 in a remodel of the house. Had I not done the remodel, the house might have sold for $250,000. Instead, with the remodel, it sold for $345,000. Pretty good return on the money. I don't have any more property for him to sell for me, but if I did, Darin would be the guy. Very pleased with him." -Bill B

- Client Testimonial

Thanks Darin!" -Paris & Grace

"It has been a true pleasure to work with Darin Rich. He has been as knowledgeable and helpful as anyone I have ever known.

- Client Testimonial

"Darin has helped our family to both buy a home and sell a home. I interviewed 4 Real Estate Professionals. Darin was by far the most responsive to all requests for information and opinions. He gave us very practical information about what repairs to make, when to put the house on the market and how much our asking price should be. We had many interested buyers look at the house and we sold it for more than the asking price. I highly recommend Darin as a Real Estate Professional. I would recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling a home." -Nancy J

- Client Testimonial

"Despite living on the other side of the country, Darin worked with me seamlessly to sell my townhouse. When it didn't sell during an abbreviated period in the quieter fall season, Darin was so committed to customer service that he even took on managing my property as a rental until the busier spring season. Lo and behold, after placing the house on the market in the spring, we got a fair offer within two days. Darin's honesty when I needed to hear it and ability to listen to my concerns made this transaction a pleasure." -Richard E

- Client Testimonial

"Darin was great!! He was very professional and responsive during the whole process. He didn't put any pressure on me to purchase a property. It was about finding the right house for me. After finding the right property Darin was able to negotiate closing costs and seller help for fixes noted in the inspection. Every time we visited the property he would point out the important details and explain everything he was looking or checking for. He has a wealth of knowledge and that's helpful to a first time townhome buyer like myself. He made the process very smooth and comfortable. I will definitely use again." -N Brizan

- Client Testimonial

"My house was difficult to sell as it was smaller than adjacent neighborhood houses and somewhat outdated. Mr. Rich's knowledge of local contractors allowed me to update the house at a fair price thus making it more marketable. Mr. Rich was also effective at networking with other realtors to assure that the house was seen by as many prospective buyers as possible. He also conducted an appropriate number of open houses. Mr. Rich also assured that the sales contract was appropriately written. There was a deadline to request house repairs after the inspection. When this deadline passed Mr. Rich was forceful in denying later requests." -M Cohen

When it came time to move across the country and rent my house Darin immediately went to work to find a suitable renter. His knowledge on presentation was invaluable in preparing and renting the property. Darin's help and support enabled me to move forward knowing my property was in good hands. That was two years ago and now that we're ready for a new tenant Darin is right there with the help and expertise that I have come to know and trust. When it does come time to sell I know Darin will be ready to go with his friendly, easy going yet businesslike style.

- Jim Loizos

I've had the opportunity to work with Darin twice now, once to assist me in renting out my Condo in Germantown, and then to assist me and my spouse locate a home to rent in the Silver Spring area. What impressed me about Darin was his efficiency in handling both rentals, along with his constant communication throughout the process. The latter was a very comforting as I was always made aware of the status of each rental. In this day and age, being kept informed from any type of service provider can be a challenge, but it is critical skill to maintaining good working relationships, and Darin exhibited this during both of our interactions. Last, I appreciate the committment he showed to me as his client. He makes you feel like he's got your best interest in mind, which I so appreciate. Needless to say, I look forward to working with Darin on future real estate needs.

- Anne Cornet

Darin was such a pleasure to work with! He was great at guiding me through the adventure of selling my condo - everything from getting it ready, the listing process, negotiating contracts, and expectations for settlement. My condo went to contract within a week of listing! His quick response time was most appreciated. Darin far exceeded my expectations, I would highly recommend him!

- Stephany rodriguez

When I hired Darin, I hired a realtor professional that I felt I could trust. I needed advice on how to price my property so it would sell, what upgrades to the property would help get it sold and which were not necessary, and to guide me through a number of legal aspects of selling a house. Darin never wasted my time or trust. I felt he always had my best interests at heart. I always felt he gave me wise advice. When he said he would follow through on any aspect of the sale, he did so promptly. He kept me advised on every aspect of the process. For me, trust is hard to earn and easy to lose. Darin never lost my trust. I believe you will be equally pleased when you hire Darin.

- M B
