Richard was very helpful and knowledgable on helping us find our first home. He assisted our search and was readily available to show homes with our difficult work schedule. I highly recommend having Richard as a Realtor because he continued to work diligently for us and explained the new process easily so it made house hunting fun and exciting!

Richard always retuned phone calls and answered my questions in a timely manor.He was able to reassure me about the decisions I had to make. His knowledge of the real estate market put my mind at ease about my final decision to sell. I would not hesitate to give his name to a friend.

Richard sold two homes for me this past year. One on my mother's behalf and my home. Both homes were sold in less than a week!! My mother's home involved a long distance transactions and Richard made this an easy and smooth process. Richard is very thorough and efficient! If you are trying to decide on a realtor, I am confident that Richard would do an excellent job for you!

Richard was a big help with selling our home, we attempted to sell by owner but not getting anywhere so we decided to go to Richard for help. Richard sold our home in a timely manner with no hassle. We told him to only accept seriouse offers and that's what he did. It was a great experience and I would recommend using Richards service.

Richard was very knowledgeable and helpful to my fiance and I during our first home purchase. It was a long-distance transaction so I'm sure it was more work than it should've been but he was very patient and great about responding to all of our emails and phone calls. He was nice enough to set something up with my local family to show the house to them in our stead, provided us with recommendations of lawyers to use at the closing, was great about keeping us updated on everything when our lawyer didn't, and even reminded me to switch the electricity to our names before closing (as first time buyers I'm sure we wouldn't have thought of that). I highly recommend Richard and would absolutely use his services again! Less ... More

My family has used Richard for several transactions on each side as a buyer and seller and has made each one a success. I also used him to assist in purchasing my home. I am very happy with the results as he made the experience of purchasing my first home an easy transaction. I would recommend him to anyone who is in the market to either purchase or sell your home.

We had an agent from a different Coldwell Bankers group trying to sell our house for 3 months. There was practically no response. Two one hour open houses were held. When that contract ended, we tried to sell ourselves for a couple of weeks. We then received a call about Richard and agreed to see him. That Friday evening we signed a contract with Richard. Monday was a holiday, on Tuesday I received a call to show the house that evening. The same person looked again the following day and by Friday we had a signed contract. That is amazing! Richard truly has the experience and the contacts necessary to sell your house. I have already recommended him to a neighbor and highly recommend him to anyone who really wants results. Thank you Richard! Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
Richard has had a property listed for sale for us for quite a long time. We never hear from us unless we initiate contact. We have no idea whether the property is shown, and he has never made suggestions about how to improve the desireability of this property. Not impressed in the least.
Response fromRichard Parent
Chris, Thank you for taking the time to provide your valuable feedback. I also appreciated the opportunity to help you with your selling efforts. I apologize for not selling your commercial property in the time that we worked together. However, I was pleased that we did successfully negotiate a long term lease for your property which helped you (and will continue to) substantially offset your carrying costs during a very challenging time for your property type and price. I do appreciate your feedback and I plan to incorporate some of the things we?ve learned with your listing to improve the experience for my future clients. Richard Less ... More

Plus, his office has recently undergone a major technology upgrade so I can be in constant contact with him even when we are on different sides of the globe.

Richard Parent was extremely helpful in helping us find and purchase our new house! He is very professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and was very patient in showing us through the house and in explaining the details of the purchase. He is a very honest man, he took the time to make sure we understood every detail of the house and the purchase agreement. Our home was built in 1810 and has lots of interesting character. He personally led us on a thorough tour as we explored each nook and cranny. We are out of state buyers and wanted a nice house in the Trenton NY area for our retirement home. Richard (and Zillow) helped us find the perfect house that filled all our needs. We would highly recommend Richard Parent and Coldwell Banker. We look forward to moving to our home in Trenton and hope to connect with Richard for our future real estate needs. Less ... More

Richard was very helpful in helping us in finding a home to purchase in a major time crunch. He is great with protecting you as a buyer and his representation was top notch. He was extremely quick with responding to any questions or concerns we had and was willing to even work with us after hours. He has a great sense of humor and went above and beyond the call of duty. Richard Parent was an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you Richard for everything!
Response fromRichard Parent
Laura, Jason, Although exclusive "Buyer Representation" is a relatively new concept in our more traditional market it does provide me with the legal right to protect your best interests at every step of the way. As a result we were able to solve a few bumps in the road as we moved towards a succesful closing. Thank you for the opportunity to represent and help you with this important transaction! Richard

I first contacted Richard when I had seen a house I wanted to purchase on line. From the outset Richard displayed excellent knowledge in all areas of Real Estate sales. I was a first time home buyer and therefore needed experience on my side ; with Richard representing me I got that and a lot more. I wanted to buy this house with a particular dollar amount in mind from the beginning. Richard used his many years of experience to make that happen for me. I would without hesitation recommend Richard Parent to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home, condo, property etc... In fact not only do I recommend him but I will say you should seek him out and you will not be disappointed in any regard. He went far above and beyond for me on many occasions and I owe him a debt of gratitude for doing so. Less ... More

Richard came in and evaluated our property. He established a relaistic price range and had a game plan for selling my house in a tough market. Throughout the selling process he stuck to the game plan. When I needed some assistance to make a few improvements to the property Richard was there to provide a contractor that could do the work while I had relocated and was working out of state. He kept in close contact with me throughtout the process. I would highly recommend Richard as a realestate agent! Less ... More

Our experience working with Richard when buying our first home was very good. He was very quick to find homes in our price range and that met many of our requirements. He was always very willing to see multiple homes even the same home multiple times. Richard was very friendly and easy to work with. My only regret was that he unfortunately was unable to be with us for our final walk through on our closing day. But Richard was a pleasure to work with and would recommend him with out hesitation. :) Less ... More

From initial contact to the sale of our home, Richard Parent was wonderful to work with. He provided us with his vast experience and insightful advice relating to how we could succeed in selling our home in this market. He was always professional, honest, and straightforward with us, even when dealing with difficult and highly emotional situations. Whenever we had a question or needed his help, we were able to call on him, and he was always very responsive and helpful. He didn't always tell us what we wanted to hear, but what he told us led unerringly to selling the house within a very reasonable time for a price we could accept. We would not hesitate to call on him again. We worked with other realtors in the area and he was the best by far! Timothy & Marsha Collett Less ... More

I first used Richard to help me sell my house in Frankfort and buy a house in Herkimer. He did such an outstanding job that m\I recommended him to my mother in law who also used him to sell her house. Again he did an outstanding job and was very professional. Now that I fixed up my current home I am again using him to sell this one and help me with the purchase of yet another. He is a pleasure to do business with and I highly recommend him to anyone needing a top notch real estate agent.
