Helped me buy and sell homes
It was wonderful dealing with Rick. He went out his way to take me to a few of my showings. He took his time to explain what was happening during the selling and buying processes. The sale of my home was prolonged because buyers were buying through a government loan but Rick soothed my anxieties by explaining ongoing issues as they progressed. I would happily recommend Rick to others looking to either buy or sell. Rick graciously walked me through a learning experience I never had taken before. A super realtor in my opinion. Less ... More

From the moment we met him, Rick made us feel like he would go out of his way to get our house sold as quickly as possible. We had interviews with a couple realtors and Rick was the only one who was both realistic and unapologetic about what our expectations should be in terms of pricing our house. He made sure we were well-informed and prepared for each step of the process. He recommended a staging professional to give us advice to make our home attractive to buyers. Knowing we had to be in a new city in 3 weeks, and armed with all that information, we had the house staged and ready for showings within 2 weeks. Rick made the entire process easy and understandable. He was always patient and responsive when we had tons of questions. And was honest and upfront with us even when there was news we wouldn?t necessarily like. We would highly recommend Rick to friends, family and anyone needing a realtor in the York and surrounding areas. Less ... More

Rick took such good care of my fiancé and I. We were completely new to the home buying process and were nervous to begin it. Rick made the process fun and as stress free as possible. He is knowledgeable, relational, and experienced. I give him a 100% in his customer service skills. I would definitely reccomend him, especially to people like my fiancé and I who were first time buyers.

Rick is truly a patient person. We started working with Rick in finding a home in the Spring of 2013. He took on us to see many homes, thoroughly explaining things within each one that we needed to look for and point out potential problems. He always had our best interest at heart and always happy to show us the next home as we tried to find the "right one" . After 1 year we found it! From the beginning until the end he made it seem effortless and it was truly appreciated. Thanks Rick for all that you did in helping us find the "right" home! Joe and Paula Hill Less ... More

Rick went above and beyond my expectations. Before I decide to go with Rick I went through 2 other relators and 3 other brokers before he got me in contact with the right broker that helped me along the way. Even though there were times when I didn't think I was going to find a home Rick assured me that he would be able to find a home that fits my needs and he did. I closed on 5/30/14 and am very happy in my new home, he was able to get me a good deal and a few extra things that I didn't even know I could get. So if you truly want a realtor that'll work for you and do everything in his power to find a home that works for you then Rick Shaffer is defiantly your man. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
As first-time homebuyers, my husband and I were certain that we needed a buyer?s agent to provide real estate services. Our initial discussion with Rick Shaffer from Prudential assured me that we had made the right decision. With over 20 years of experience in real estate, Rick quickly assuaged our fears as novices in the marketplace by spending over two hours (!) in an initial consultation walking us through what to expect - - from financing to home selection. Throughout the process, he gave us expert advice on everything from current market conditions to key ?warning signs? to look for when viewing homes. This is nothing to say of the amount of patience he had with us as we viewed home listing after home listing - - changed our minds with what we thought were looking for and then changed them again! Sufficed it to say, it took some time to find ?our? home because we wanted somewhere we could envision raising our future family, but Rick was always there for us. When it came down to finally finding and acting quickly on our house to be, he was again readily available and willing with his expertise and superior customer service. Rick?s support right up until the last moment, including assisting us in dealing with unprepared sellers, made the ultimate difference in finally being able to call ourselves ?homeowners?. Rick Shaffer and his team were invaluable assets in our first home-buying endeavor and whether buying or selling in the future, we won?t use anyone else! Less ... More

Rick worked wonders for our family! We had very unique needs for our new home, and we were half way across the country before this move! Rick was wonderful in finding us a home at the right time for the right price! We could not be more pleased with his attention to detail or his help through the whole process!

It was great working with Rick in buying our first home. He was extremely patient with us when we were shopping around and always made time for us. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He was very knowledgeable and honest. With us being first time home buyers, we didn't know much and he was very helpful. We look forward to working with him again in the future!

I really wish we weren't making this purchase our last residence. Rick was such a joy to work with from the the very first showing right through settlement. I would highly recommend him for his diligence, work ethic and honesty. Rick was very upfront about everything and didn't mind answering any questions we had. We joked that we may have to call him up to show us some houses just to enjoy his company again. If you don't use Rick, you'll be missing out on a superior agent and home buying/selling experience Less ... More

Rick Shaffer is the best real estate person we have ever had the pleasure to deal with! Rick listened to what we wanted and the price point we wanted to be in, and showed us only what we requested to see. This man should give classes on how to be the best realtor possible! Thank you Rick for a wonderful experience, we look forward to seeing you soon. Easter will be a blessing with all of our family together in Pa.! Rose & Frank

Rick was excellent to work with. He was extremely knowledgeable and accessible. I would strongly recommend Rick Shaffer's real estate services if you are looking to sell or buy your home. We did both and Rick helped make the transition go very smoothly. It was a very tight market and Rick helped us to price our home right so that we were able to sell for what we wanted in a timely manner.

Before I met Rick at one of his open houses, I was a realtor skeptic. I had very little faith or trust in any realtor that I had dealt with during the purchase and sale of 7 homes. I considered them a necessary evil. But Rick set a new standard for this profession. It was such a pleasure to work with him that I missed the guy once the job was complete. I cannot say enough about his level of knowledge, his patience, and his professional demeanor. A great realtor and a great person. Scott and Marguerite Less ... More

Rick was so helpful and caring to my husband and I. We were first time buyers and it took us over a year to find the perfect house. Rick stuck with us and walked us through the home buying experience with ease. He had great knowledge of the area and was always looking out for our best interest. Rick wasn't just a GREAT realtor, he became a GREAT friend.
