Chandra Green Sold my Townhouse home in 2018 in Norcross, GA.
Rick Payne is a true professional who brings results. His guidance and knowledge in real property is bar none. Years ago Rick was my agent when I purchased my townhome and I couldn't think of a better agent to help me sale my property when I was ready. He is a trusted partner. He was able to list my home for the best price I could imagine. He made several recommendations I'm glad I followed. Finding someone to paint my home no problem let's provide them with a paint-allowance. All the recommendations benefited me tremendously. I was out of state but RIck was always available and kept me informed of the process. I had total peace of mind regarding the sale of my home because I was working with Rick. The closing process went smooth as well. HIs business partners were great also. If you are buying or selling your home call Rick Payne he knows the business, the areas, what's up and coming and how to get you the location and home you desire.
Brandon Arthur Lucas Johnson bought Single Family Home in 2016 & sold Home in 2018
Rick Payne helped my wife and I both buy and sell our home. Throughout both the purchasing and selling processes, Rick showed himself to be extremely perceptive and was able to quickly recommend and implement useful solutions and strategies. I was also impressed by Mr. Payne's negotiation skills and ability to find resolutions that benefit both the seller and the buyer. Given the way my wife and I proceeded in Purchasing our home, we did not take advantage of Ricks local knowledge; however, I know Rick to be truthful about the extent of his knowledge in any particular region. Overall, I strongly recommend Rick for anyone interested in either the sale or purchase of a home.

Rick was the agent that helped my husband and I find a home in Georgia. we recently relocated here from Louisiana. We found our home within 4 weeks. We were able to close within 2 weeks after we found our dream home. He was very helpful. He made our home buying a pleasant experience. He found us the perfect home within our budget. He was knowledgeable, responsive and is an excellent negotiator. I would recommend him to any one who is looking to buy or sell a home in Georgia.
William & Kionne Feaster Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Suwanee, GA.
We've worked with with Rick now for about 10 years. He helped us buy and later sell our first home and more recently help us buy our current home. When you meet him you immediately feel like family. He is as knowledge a real estate agent as you'll find, and he always looks out for his clients best interest. He is a tough negotiator as well and has gotten us very good deals every time we've gone to closing. He is highly recommended.

My Reason for Choosing Mr. Payne was 5 Things He is a very Honest man, Respectful, very very geniue man, Always on time and knows his Stuff. Never in a single day did he Rush Austin and I to Get a home or pushing us to do something that we didn't want to do. I remember 2 particular home that we saw, the 1st one was in Buford and this home was very nice, good school district and everything but little did we know that there was a Big Pond at the back of the house which was a deal breaker. Mr. Payne saw it and he knew we love the house but he put his Commission aside and called us that he has to be honest with us we shouldn't buy this house, cos in the future if we decide to sell the house its will be a big problem and on top of it 85% of people will never buy a house with a Pond at the back cos one there could be snakes coming inside the house, mosquito and many things and that truly touch Austin and I , the 2nd house to was in Auburn was a good house in our eyes but Mr. Payne spot an issue we really safe us for making the biggest of our life and now we have got our dream home with is in a very very good school district, a 1000ft bigger that any of the homes we saw. My family love it our Master bedroom its like two rooms put together and anyone who walks in into our house and with the Mortgage we pay on top of it its Amazed and we that the Lord for using Mr. Payne not only has his been our Agent but now we have become family. And our Prayer is that the Lord will in him and help us to get our dream home shortly. So please if u are out there looking for a genuine
IvanAlfaro Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Old Fourth Ward, Atlanta, GA.
Rick worked with me in finding a beautiful diamond in the rough, without the rough in Midtown and at a great price. He was great at negotiating with the seller (a bank), very responsive and knowledgeable about the process, which is all very relieving. It just took us a matter of probably 2-3 months to find it and I'm in love with it.
Steph1985 Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Cumming, GA.
Rick was fantastic throughout the whole buying process in particular his negotiation skills and his responsiveness to any questions that we had. He also kept us well informed through every step. His knowledge was extremely valuable as we were first time buyers. I would, and have, recommended him to others.
