Testimonials for Richard Daskam
I absolutely highly recommend Richard Daskam. I have listed two fourplexes with him. The first had an excellent offer within 24 hours with an early close of escrow. The second is currently in escrow. Richard is easy to communicate with, extremely helpful with all of the details, calm, always available and responds quickly every time I reach out to him. He communicates well with the tenants to accomplish the appraisals and inspections needed. He is excellent at negotiating and got me top dollar for the properties. I would definitely hire him again
Richard provided excellent service and helped me in EVERY way possible. I definitely recommend him. Thank you!
I have know Richard for years and have sold and bought homes through him. There is simply no one else you want to do business with when buying or selling. He gets the job done and through the entire process you never have to wonder what's happening.
Richard daskam did an awesome job in selling our house. He responded quickly to my need to sell my house. quickly paid me a visit. explained the nature of the market. advertised the house immediately. and was successful in finding a buyer. he kept me up to date on events and sent documents for signatures rapidly. and kept me up to date on changes and dealt with my spouse in a professional yet convincing manner. he did a great job.
Richard has done a superb job in quickly listing and selling a Four Plex in California City for a group of us. Richard has also leased two properties for me and I will give him the Stoneybrook listing when I decide to sell. He has done a remarkable work in Stoneybrook and my guess is he has listed, sold and leased more in that complex than any other agent.
Richard Daskam is the best! Richard helped us and walked us through everything, This is our first home purchase and we did not know anything! We had a lot of questions and Richard was always responsive to all of them. We called him on the phone and sent him text mesages at all times of the day and night, 7 days a week, and, Richard was always responsive and friendly with all the answers. Richard is a Pit-Bull he makes the calls and gets you into the houses that you want to see quickly. It took me a long time to find my dream house, I looked at a lot of houses over six months, Richard was with me every step of the way, and always with a great attitude and with great advice. Richard is a very honest and kind person and I would highly recomend him to everyone.
Janine is great person to work with. She is honest and trustworthy. Janine represented me in a number of condo purchases.
I should say that she is not great - JANINE IS THE GREATEST:
Real Estate Agent,
Home Staging expert
Janine made everything go very smoothly. She is great to work with. She always answered our questions even at crazy hours. She is very experienced and knowleadgeable.
The process to buy the land was smooth and Richard and his office assistant were very helpful during the whole process. The escrow company he recommended was very helpful and professional too. Services provided included:
1. A tour of the property
