My wife and I have known Rick for several years; and sought his assistance when we were considering selling our house. Rick's help in understanding the market value of our house, marketing strategies, and many of the complex trade-offs of buying and selling our house were invaluable. He was fair, reasonable and honest in his assessments. We'd surely use him the next time we need help with Real Estate.

Rick was referred to me by one of my neighbors. My home sold in 3 days and for more than the asking price. My agent even handled the contractors who did work on my house. Thank you so much!
— Chrissy and Lee Fleishman, Germantown, MD-Waters Landing07/18/2011
Rick worked quickly to find us a great house. He listened to what we were looking for and found several homes that fit our needs. He was understanding and patient since this was our first home search and took the time to explain every step of the process. He responds to emails and calls quickly and was great at scheduling multiple properties to view back to back which helped since we are a very busy couple.
We spent 2 full days driving around to various properties (about a week apart) and had a signed contract within 2 weeks after our initial meeting with Rick. He even went above and beyond to get our contract signed since the selling agent was out of town, doing double the work, but not one complaint. He has helpful after the sale and we continue to communicate regularly. We plan on hiring Rick in the future.
— Nancy and Frank Crisafulli, North Potomac, MD12/02/2010
Rick Reed is an energetic broker with a high level of integrity and great communication skills. He sold a number of properties for our family between 1999 and 2009 and in every case we had a sales contract with our asking price within a couple of weeks. Because of this level of excellence, we recently asked Rick to help us locate and purchase a property. From day one, he listened carefully to what we were looking for, narrowed the search for us and was accessible, patient and informative when he showed us properties within our parameters.
Rick is adept at creating connections and we always feel he has our best interest at heart. During the house search, there was no pressure to make a quick decision or consider a property that was ‘almost” right or “close enough’. When we were ready to purchase, Rick thoroughly and carefully reviewed our contract and made it easy to ask questions always answering them with a veteran’s experience and knowledge. Rick is so easy to do business with we wouldn’t hesitate to call on him in the future.
