Customer Testimonial | Ric Bareng

Buyer Rating:

Mr. Ric Bareng Jr. is an awesome realtor!!!! Don't miss out on the Ric experience! If you want a highly experienced realtor, that knows his stuff, & that you can actually trust, he's your man! Super efficient and transparent, as well as hardworking. He's very dedicated to his job. In this very competitive housIng market, we were able to buy the home of our dreams in a decent price in less then 2 weeks of working with him. I really appreciated his ability to provide excellent customer service skills, open communication, efficiency, and transparency. His years of experience and transperancy made my husband and I feel fully satisfied with his representation and support. I'm definitely going to be referring him to all my friends/family!

Customer Testimonial | Phillip Lopez

Buyer Rating:

Being a first time home buyer, it was a bit intimidating entering the current market. However, Phillip never slowed down to help me find my first home. His positive attitude and patience was reassuring. He guided me through the entire process and helped answer (or find answers to) my never-ending list of questions. It was apparent that he always had my best interest in mind. My budget was limited, but under his suggestion, I submitted letters with my offers, and that was ultimately a big part of what got me my house! I will definitely recommend Phillip to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

Kay has been a friend for many years. She has always supported our work on 35 SO. 12th street. My late husband appreciated her interest and support for our rehab program. She is honest and above repoarch when dealing with a client. She is excellent to work with. She is highly supportive and through in her dealings. I will always support Kay and recommend her to anyone that needs to sell or buy a home.

Thank you for giving me a chance to let you know how pleased I am with her service.

Customer Testimonial | Ric Bareng

Seller Rating:

He's very knowledgeable,

accommodating, and very helpful! He even volunteered to help us move, although we

hired movers.

It was a slow start when we put our home on the market and to bring in more possible

buyers, he decreased his commission!

Not many agents that I know of are willing to do those types of sacrifices for their

clients! Also, he's still in the US Army Reserves so when had to do his weekend duty,

he had a colleague cover the open house time slots.

He was always available by text or by phone and he always responded within minutes. I

highly recommend Ric Bareng to our family and friends if ever they need a real estate


Customer Testimonial | Ric Bareng

Buyer Rating:

Ric Bareng Jr. is awesome. I can't express how grateful I am for the service that he provided me and my wife. Buying a brand new home can be very very very stressful but Ric was there throughout the whole process. He was there for us since the day one. (From the day we start thinking of buying a house). He lead us to the right path. It was a very long process until we finally decided to buy a house. He has given us so many options to choose from, until we finally found the perfect community and perfect house for us. He was there when we initially signed the contract for the builder to start building the house that we wanted. He was there when we choose upgrades for the house and he was there every single walk-through during this process. We bought a house in the central valley and the traffic is very bad from the bay area but Ric made sure that he is always there to provide quality service to us, no matter how bad the traffic is. He is always there. He is very knowledgeable about the whole process and very professional. If anybody needs a realtor Ric Bareng Jr. is the perfect man for the job. Ric is super awesome!!!

Customer Testimonial | Ric Bareng

Buyer Rating:

I have worked with Ric Bareng for almost a year and here are some of the qualities

that made him stand out.

He shows up on time in every appointments, very persistent and professional. He is knowledgeable about the real estate market with good communication and negotiation skills. And aside from that as a first time buyer, I was really anxious about the whole process but with the help of Ric and his responsiveness with our questions, his honesty and transparency with the whole process it made me feel comfortable, I worry less, because I know he will not take advantage of us. I guess that's what makes him different from other agents, he cares about the welfare of his customers and he treats them as a family.

Thank you for setting the bar high when it comes to providing excellent customer service and for meeting our expectations.
