Awards and Recognition

< à>'Michael Richardson was both objective and accessible as he shepherded us through our house purchase process. He provided us with important insights on all the properties that we saw and he had extensive knowledge of local professionals who could perform good inspections. Finally Michael helped us to navigate the complexities of closing the deal remotely during the pandemic.'

< à>'A friend of ours recommended Michael Richardson to us. We called and set up an appointment to meet with him. From the first meeting, we knew we had the right person to sell our home. His relaxed, patient, informative manor made this sometimes difficult process, go smoothly.< à>With multiple showings from the first day of the listing, his remarkable talents provided a fast sale. We couldn’t be more pleased and have referred him to many friends.'

< à>'How to begin? My husband and I began looking for a second home in Bucks County in early fall 2019. We own a home in Maine but were looking for a property closer to family... and easy commutes to Philadelphia and NYC.

< à>The search began, contracts fell through, but Michael never lost his patience or enthusiasm ....and then, the pandemic hit....the WORST time to look at properties. Again, Michael patiently videoed properties for us to see, along with virtual tours, and continued to be accommodating to our real estate requests...NOT an easy task considering the many logistic virus hurdles.

< à>We closed on a perfect second home the end of August, Michael guiding us through settlement via emails, zoom, etc.

< à>Friends had recommended Michael, as we knew no real estate professional in the area and boy, did we hit the jackpot! Michael helped us all along the way with his expert advice, knowledge of the area, always listening to our concerns with humour and grace.

< à>We highly recommend Michael... and WILL....to friends who are considering Bucks County themselves.'
