“When the roots are deep, there is no reason to fear the wind.”
– Chinese Proverb
The roots of a tree anchor it to the soil and keep it straight and stable. The roots of a
business serve the same purpose. All decisions and actions are determined by the root
system. A strong root system ensures a business will remain straight and stable. A business
with a weak root system is quickly tumbled by even the slightest wind. My business is operated
according to our roots. Everything we do, each decision we make, is based on our purpose
and our eight core beliefs.
BELIEF 1: IMPACT OVER
“Profit isn’t a purpose, it’s a result. To have purpose means
the things we do are of real value to others.” – Simon Sinek
BELIEF 2: LIVE CONSERVATIVELY. GIVE GENEROUSLY.
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
BELIEF 3: NEVER SURRENDER.
“You lose nothing when fighting for a cause…
In my mind, the losers are those who don’t have
a cause that they care about.” – Muhammad Ali
Selling my townhouse on Irvine was probably one of the hardest decisions I've had to make in a very long time... I interviewed a couple of agents and I ultimately chose to work with Richard because I felt that he had taken the time to really get to know the complex I lived in. He understood it's uniqueness and also had a rally good handle on marketing my unit. He didn't disappoint. He had a plan, we followed his plan and I received multiple offers within 24 hours of the open house. I ended up going with an all cash offer that was above listing. He did an amazing job in getting everything done and keeping things running as smoothly as one can with the sale of a home. All of this, despite the fact that he had to deal with an extremely challenging agent on the other side! I would highly recommend Richard to anyone who is considering selling or buying. He's honest, professional and personable - I'm not certain the same can always be said for others in his profession. Thank you Richard!
I interviewed other Agents before choosing Richard. I chose him because he was so well prepared for our meeting and so professional. I was confident I would be in good hands and he has more than exceeded any expectation I might have. He committed to helping me through every step and he did that with consistent excellence. His calm and perspective in the middle of the home selling and home buying experience was invaluable. He also brought in experts to make my home look the best it ever has by thoughtful and strategic staging and photos. In fact, his strategic perspective is awesome and he is a powerful negotiator. I have found him to be unfailingly professional in all circumstances and his followup is excellent. He kept me in the loop every step of the way. I highly recommend Richard as your agent of choice.
Marilyn and I have bought and sold 9 homes across the United States. We've worked with some good agents, some average agents, and one or two true superior agents. Richard Wamsat is in the superb/superior rating. Richard advised us in ways that we had not considered before. His negotiation skills are significant. Richard always worked in a proactive manner and always anticipated our needs as well as anticipated potential obstacles that we did not ever understand. In the end, we could have chosen two or three other realtors that we knew and had worked with before almost 20 years ago - in the area that we bought. I can tell you from personal experience they would not have done the numerous things that we saw Richard execute on our behalf. If you are looking for an ethical, hardworking, honest, and dedicated professional - you have found him! Call Richard; you will not be disappointed.
Richard did an amazing job. We sold our home in Cleveland, Ohio and drove to Irvine to find a home. Some friends of ours who had recently bought a home in Irvine suggested that we us a discount broker who would rebate part of his commission back to us at the close. We are so glad that we did not take their advice because Richard saved us WAY more money than we would have saved going with a discount broker. His negotiation skills and knowledge of the contract were amazing. He got us a great price on the home and made it so we did not end up paying for two homes while we waited for our lease to be up. He helped us through every part of the process taking the time to review all of the documents with us and he looked out for our best interests. He even met us at the escrow office to make sure that we were taken care of there too, even though he didn't have to. We had lots of questions and Richard was always available to answer them. He was very patient, never pushy, and is very friendly. We are very pleased and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Richard was highly recommended by a friend, and we were so happy with his service. Richard is extremely informed and skilled at his job. We were out of the area and he handled the entire sale for us (including keeping us informed on the repair work when the contractor wasn't communicating well). He was quick to respond to email, texts or regular calls. He was one step ahead of the process and was able to sell our rental (over the asking price) from start to finish in a little over 30 days! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for service that exceeds the normal standard.
We were recommended to Richard by a family friend, and as first time home buyers, we were very nervous and didn't know what we didn't know. From the very first time we met Richard, we knew we were in great hands!! He sat down with my wife and I to understand what we were looking for, what we liked and disliked, so he could help us not only find our dream home, but also eliminate what we weren't looking for. Richard not only helped us understand the process of buying a home, but was able to take all of the complex items involved and make them simple. His attention to detail, knowledge of real estate, and negotiating skills are absolutely remarkable!! My family and I were able to buy the home of our dreams at an amazing price because of Richard, and we are eternally grateful. I will recommend Richard to all of my friends and family because I know he will do an amazing job for them as well. Richard will be our real estate agent for every home we buy and sell, and we are proud to now have him as a friend. Thank you Richard!!
