If you're reading this, then you're in the same position my wife and I were in.  We were scared about our worsening financial situation, embarrassed, and unsure of our future.  So by the time we made the call to the Ricco's, we were desperate.  We needed help, answers to a lot of questions, and were hoping our meeting with them wasn't going to be some contrived shakedown by a couple sleazy realtors.  That didn't happen.  They were direct, patient with us, and put us at ease while they answered what we believed, were very difficult questions.  No, no shake down, because that's not Gary and Jennifer, not by a long shot.

Let me say, you did well to find them.  With so many homes and families in distress, there are naturally a lot of realtors you could have picked.  It isn't easy, and some how, some way, you chose well.  You'll find both Gary and Jennifer to have a unique passion about their work.  That passion and energy never waned during our time with them.  Our situation was very complicated, and it took a year before we finally saw closure, and during that time, they were always there.  They often had the answers to our questions before we asked, and when the bank(s) were being difficult, they were able to diagnose for us in layman's terms, what it was the bank's were doing.  They fought hard for us.  At times, we lost hope.  But it was their passion, coupled with their knowledge and experience in the incredibly complex foreclosure market, which impressed us the most.  During the toughest times, it was these traits that put both my wife and I at ease. 

What we'd really like to pass along to you is picked the best.  What you're facing is no joke.  It's ugly, and isn't going to go away anytime soon.  You should be anxious, and scared about what's ahead....we were.  But now, looking back at it, we are very glad we chose the Ricco's.  Because of their work and efforts, they allowed us to keep some dignity and piece of mind during our crisis.  It is with that we proudly recommend them to you.  If you decide to take them on, enjoy the ride.

To Whom It May Concern:  

   It is with great pleasure that my husband and I write this letter of recommendation for real estate agents, Gary Ricco and Jennifer Ricco of Keller-Williams Real Estate.   We met Gary and Jennifer for the purchase of a house and were so impressed by their professionalism, we entrusted them to act as buyer/seller agents and to list for sale our home also.  From the beginning we experienced top-notch realty expertise, from the numerous two sets of real estate documents, the virtual tour photos, and the weekly updates online that showed statistics as to how many times our house had been visited online.  We were very pleased with the manner in which our home was listed, presented and shown to prospective buyers.  Gary and Jennifer sold our home and assisted us in purchasing our new home.  Both escrows went smoothly and we therefore highly recommend Gary and Jennifer Ricco for any real estate need.   

   We met them on a business level and we have developed a friendship that will continue for many years.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter to express my deep gratitude and appreciation for Gary and Jennifer Ricco. My wife and I were represented by Gary and Jennifer in the short sale of our home, and we can honestly say that they truly are the most amazing real estate agents we have ever worked with.

From the very first moment we met with Gary and Jennifer, we could tell that they were honest, compassionate, and genuine. Gary and Jennifer truly showed an interest in their work and a desire to help people in need. When we explained our situation and need for help, they listened. After gaining a solid understanding of our situation, Gary and Jennifer provided us with options to solve our problem and a commitment to executing the plan no matter how long it took or how difficult it could become.

A short sale is not an easy one, and Gary and Jennifer demonstrated a strong understanding of the entire process and an amazing ability to make it work. From start to finish, Gary and Jennifer knew exactly what needed to be done. They were always one step ahead of the game and had a solid reaction plan based on every possible outcome for any given situation. We were nervous about trying to tackle a short sale with our home, but Gary and Jennifer were always there to explain everything and make us feel comfortable. They truly are experts in distressed property transactions.

Gary and Jennifer have an answer for everything; I truly believe they can accomplish the impossible. I would highly recommend Gary and Jennifer to anyone who needs to buy or sell a home no matter how dire or complicated the situation may be. If anyone can help, Gary and Jennifer can. Not only will they get the job done, but they will be there for you every step of the way.

Gary and Jennifer truly are amazing people. In a world where it seems nobody can be trusted, you can count on Gary and Jennifer. They will help you through any real estate transaction, and be your friend too. When you work with Gary and Jennifer, not only do you benefit from their expertise and professionalism, but you also benefit from the entire professional community that they bring with them. Gary and Jennifer Ricco provide a total package solution to a complex problem.

"Caring, diligent, aggressive, thoughtful are just some of the character traits that describe the dynamic duo of Jennifer & Gary Ricco. The short sale process was a long process that had its share of frustration and angst; however, Jennifer & Gary never gave an inch to the lender, worked constantly with the lender and other parties to ensure we received the best possible terms for the sale of our property. In addition, they walked us through the process, kept us up to date with the latest information, and remained positive throughout the entire process. Jennifer & Gary worked out a great deal for us that allowed us to sell our property as well move on with our life at a new residence that Jennifer & Gary were instrumental in helping us to secure. We could not have closed the sale of our home with such agreeable terms and moved on successfully to our new residence without the tremendous efforts & skills of both Jennifer & Gary. We sincerely thank you and will recommend you both to our friends, family & peers."

"Over the last 20 years, I have experienced the purchase and sell of several homes, and have dealt with a variety of Realtors. By far, my experience with Gary and Jennifer Ricco has been the most satisfying of all. From the moment we met Gary and Jennifer, I was extremely impressed with their professionalism. The sale of this house was a very difficult decision for my family and me, due to the tragic circumstances surrounding this resolution. When I called Jennifer to arrange the first meeting, she was empathetic, showed great compassion for my situation, and was strongly equipped with all sorts of relevant information. Through the entire process they explained every procedure, had great strategy in place, and went above and beyond to promote the sale of the house. Additionally, for hours and days at a time, Gary relentlessly negotiated with the mortgage company in order to get the lengthy and tedious process sorted out. Fortunately and thanks to all their great efforts

  the house was sold! My family and I will forever be grateful for their hard work and determination. Because of this wonderful support; we can now look forward to owning another home in the not so distant future."
