I would definitely recommend Richard Varner to anyone in the market to buy or sell their home. He was very knowledgeable about the market (especially the Eastwood neighborhood) and how to get the house sold fast. My house was on the market for 6 days and sold. Richard made the process very easy.

Richard Varber was highly recommended to us by a mutual friend & realtor. We had never met Richard when we began our train of phone calls, emails & text messages. He was very quick to respond to each inquiry and in turn help douse many a potential fire. Richard worked personally with our renters that were currently occupying our condo which we intended to sell. He assisted us in overcoming their objections to show the proberty and their related concerns. Our property for sale had a committed buyer within only a few days after putting the unit on the market. The closing went smoothly and was handled efficiently by all involved. We very much appreciate his assistance in this sale as we were out of town during the entire process and Richard made it possible for us to feel con- fident that all details were being addressed.

When buying my first home, there were many important decisions to make. Working with the Varner Group was an easy one. Richard was a helpful and knowledgeable resource throughout the entire process. His professional demeanor, easy going personality and genuine care for his clients makes him a gem in this industry. I absolutely love my home, but if I were ever looking to purchase again, I know who I'd call!

Richard was great to partner with! He helped us negotiate a great offer (on the first house we saw) and worked seamlessly with our Mortgage Broker and other involved parties. He made our first home purchase an easy process, and for that, we are very thankful!

Richard did an amazing job getting us to closing. The lenders and sellers threw every curveball at him and he responded by hitting it out of the park. At times I thought we would never get to closing with our house, but Richard assured us that he was on top of it and not to worry that he had everything handled. Richard fought for us every step of the way and for that I thank him. I recommend anyone buying their first home should get in contact with Mr. Varner as he makes you feel at ease through the whole process. Less ... More

Richard did an amazing job as our agent and helped us find our perfect first house! It was a short sale, and a lot of negotiation was necessary, but Richard fought hard for us to make it happen. We highly recommend him to anyone searching for their perfect home!

I had a great experience with Richard throughout my home search. He was open and willing to gather information on all and any properties I was interested in. He stayed on top of things during the closing of my home and gave me great advice while being patient with me as I am a first time home buyer. I will highly recommend Richard to friends in the future when they decide to search for a home

Richard was a great in helping me find the home that I wanted. He was always available as well as patient because I am very picky with what I wanted. He always had homes for me to look at that fit what I was looking for. The realtor that I had before him always sent me homes that didn't fit what I was looking for. With Richard I got quality over quantity & I appreciated that!

We had a fairly stressful home-buying experience (well, I suppose they're stressful for everyone, but still). We learned that we were having twins, and needed an immediate upgrade in house. In just two months, we were in a new house, and our old house was sold. Seriously. We met with Richard in mid-March, and he helped us stage the home...on April 1, the house went on the market...the average "days on market" for our zip code was 70, but our house received offers after the first day, and had a contract for sale after only 5 days. This was awesome, but obviously complicated our house search, and Richard worked hard to build a comprehensive list of homes and get us to see as many as possible as quickly as possible...After a marathon of visits, we found the perfect house, and moved in mid-May (then closed on our old house one week later). We gave Richard a tight window and a tough task, and he performed expertly. Less ... More

Richard Varner was knowledgeable, professional and personable. His experience proved valuable as he had a contract 2 days after the listing was posted. He provided a professional staging agent which was never available with any other agent we used before. He was always available to answer any questions we had throughout the entire process. It is no wonder that he has won the "WHO'S WHO IN EAST ORLANDO" two years in a row! We will use no other realtor from this day forward and neither should you! Thank you Richard for a excellent job!

Until we started working with Richard, the process of house hunting was very stressful for my fiancee and I. Richard took over, and immediately started scheduling showings for houses that fit our criteria. He listened to what we were looking for and didn't try to sell us on something that didn't fit what we wanted. With his help we found exactly what we were looking for and Richard negotiated us a great deal. He worked well with our mortgage broker and the closing was very smooth. I would absolutely recommend Richard to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Central Florida. Less ... More

Young guy. Very enthusiastic, full of energy and always responsive. Will do whatever to help you out in his power. Here is the story: The lender want see some repairs before the deal get close. The seller do the major part. But the buyer also need do a little part such as a carpet in one room. Richard knows that the buyer (me) will replace the whole carpet later. What he do is he get one carpet from his friend and put it in which saves me a trouble.

Richard Varner is the ultimate professional realtor! When my wife and I decided to sell our home and relocate to the Avalon Park area, Richard was the person to call. I contacted Richard on a Saturday afternoon via email and within a matter of minutes Richard called me back. I was amazed by the promptness and professionalism displayed by Richard during our telephone conversation. We agreed to meet the next day, Sunday morning. Richard arrived on time dress very professionally armed with a lot of real estate information on my house to include current sales, market research and how to price my property. Richard explained the process to my wife and I as we had never sold a house before. Richard made the process very easy to understand and provided step by step information on the sale of our residence. Before we knew we were on our way to sell our house. Richard was armed with a knowledge staff to give us advice on how to make our house more marketable and the pictures of our house were taken by a professional photographer to highlight the features of the home. Once the house was listed on the MLS by Richard we had request for viewings immediately. Richard made sure to coordinate with us as to cause minimal interruption on our family life. Richard provided valuable feedback and keep me in the loop on everything! Before you knew it our house was sold!!!! Richard handled the contracts seamlessly and very expeditiously. Now that our house was sold we used Richard services to purchase our new home. Richard?s knowledge and experience once again shined when he helped us find our new home. Richard was able to give us good pricing information on the comparable sales in the area gave us advice on various properties. We submitted a contract and the sellers accepted our offer with Richard?s assistance. Richard assisted us the entire process of selling and buying our new home and we never felt alone with Richard by our side. I would highly recommend Richard as your realtor for his knowledge, care and compassion for his customers. Less ... More

Can't say enough great things about Richard. He is extremely intelligient and knows the real estate market inside and out. He has incredible attention to detail and pointed out things in potential homes that we never considered. He is very analytical and takes a very sensible and logical approach to the process. He really got to know my mom and I on a personal level and this helped us work together toward finding potential homes that were right for us. We didn't want to over pay on the short sale that we picked and Richard worked multiple angles to get us a fair deal. His depth of knowledge of Orlando real estate and the short sale process is incredible. He is absolutely a phenomenal agent. Less ... More

Richard came to my home and went over all aspects of selling a property. Showed me what to and not to do prior to showing the property. He took photos inside and out for the listings and worked with me in regards to pricing the property .Within 5 days of the listing I had 3 full price offers. We went over the offers and decided which offer was best. After accepting the offer we closed in 3 weeks. Richard made me feel that I was the only one in Orlando selling a property. Great experience working with Richard. Less ... More

We took almost two years to find our house. During this period, Mr. Varner was very helpful in every way. He helped us to determine the qualities we were looking for in the house, then helped us to select those home which met our needs.starting with a broad spectrum of homes and then narrowing the selection down closer to our wants and needs. During this process he demonstrated great patience and persistent. I would highly recommend Mr. Varner to any one looking for a home in the Orlando, Fl area. We were very pleased with his services and we are very happy with our new home. Less ... More

We contacted Richard when he was the listing agent of the house we were interested in when we lived in another country. Surprisingly he was very nice to us ended up to be our buying agent. He provided far more information than we needed to assess the value of the house. During the whole buying process, he always responded on time when we had questions since the whole process to buy the short sale property took almost 6 months. He also helped us to get local service providers such as phone, internet, water and electricity etc. since we were new to the city. We highly recommend him since he is honest and treat us as a friend instead of customers. Less ... More

Richard was amazing. He was always available to us to walk us through the process. He really gets to know his clients needs and found us a house that was within our price range, as well as meeting the criteria that we had set for him. He is extremely knowledgeable and was always a phone call away. The house buying process is so complicated to me and Richard completely made it so less stressful, just by always taking the time to explain answers to our questions, walking us through the contract and being there every step of the way until the closing. I highly recommend Richard Varner for any home buying purchases. He has a great personality, and is sensitive to his buyers needs, but more importantly he will work hard for you to make your house dreams come true!! Thank you Richard for being the most amazing, hardworking realtor!!!! Without a doubt, I would refer you to anyone!!!! Sincerely, Carolyn and Ryan McNulty. Less ... More

Buying or selling Richard will be in your corner every step of the way. With short sales he pushes them through at a much faster pace by following up. I've received 2 approvals and purchased a short sale home in less time than a friend, who is using another realtor, has taken with one short sale offer. I highly recommend having Richard on you team for transactions anywhere in Central Florida.

I have been a real estate investor for about 20 years. By and large I have little use for real estate agents. Richard is a very proactive, honest, and conscientious agent. I gave Richard my parameters to acquire property and he listened and only presented deals to me that fit my criteria. He did not try to sell me on values as a less educated agent would. I would not hesitate to listen to Richards recommendations in the future.
