Dear Richard With some of the smoke cleared, I want to thank you heartily for all you have done for us You certainly have gone way beyond what most realtors would do for a client, and we consider you a true brother. You are right that all of the details would come out in the long run. Looking very forward to coming down to see the place again, as we haven't seen it since that one half an hour visit with you on the past Good Friday afternoon before we were heading back up North ! At the least, we would love to take you and your wife out to dinner when we come down this November ! Thanks Again ! George and Sue
To all considering the use of a Realtor, Last year, I had the need to relocate to the Sarasota area and in my search I had found a home I wanted to see and it was listed with Richard, I had made an appointment to view it with him. He gave me directions to the home and was there on time. When there he had asked me some questions as to what my needs were. From that time on he had shown us many homes and was always on time and accommodating for my wife and I, and occasionally our dog Mr. Whiskers would accompany us on the house hunting trips. Throughout the 4 months of weekly searches Richard had shown patience and a sense of humor and always homes that were in our price range and area we wanted to be in. If your looking buy or invest in the Sarasota area I urge you to let Richard help you in your search and don?t hesitate to tap into Richards vast knowledge of real estate and local knowledge of the area to get you where you want to be. Thanks Richard Tony & Madonna Barashke
To whom it may concern, We found Richard Armstrong because of his advertising and marketing prowess. We called him for real estate advice and were impressed with his style and demeanor. We viewed many homes and condos with him and learned of his experience and expertise. We have listed our condo for sale with him because of his integrity and professionalism. Richard is a very knowledgeable real estate professional of highest integrity. We highly value our relationship. Donna and Charles Mead
What a guy. I literally did nothing. I turned the home over to Richard and he took charge completely. He had my condo sold in less than thirty days and sold it for the price I needed. I can?t imagine any Realtor doing a better job, and there is no way I?d ever think about using anyone else. Art Cherry
More than a true professional realtor,he is MY realtor and that is how he always acts. W.E. BAKER
Richard was thorough, always available and worked toward a quick sale. I am totally satisfied with him and I would call on him for any type of real state need in the future . Roger E. Goddard
I am the owner of Teitelbaum Developers, Inc, who in turn is the developer of Old Bridge Village, Tortuga Inn Beach Resort, and Tradewinds- Resort. All three of these are condominium properties located in Bradenton Beach, Florida. This will serve as a letter of commendation for Richard N. Armstrong, Realtor. Richard recently handled a million dollar + sale of one of my Tortuga Inn condominiums. Within two weeks of previewing the property, Richard was able to provide a quality buyer from his database! He displayed extreme professionalism, superior organizational skills and a genuine desire to attain the highest level of service. I would definitely refer Richard to any associate, friend or family member for future real estate services. Please feel free to share my comments with anyone in the market for a highly personable REALTOR? with great expertise and unquestionable ethics. David Teitelbaum
Dear Richard, I have truly enjoyed working with you on several transactions and as per agreement (our discussions), I will be completing further transactions with you in the future. Thanks, Stan Konz
I don?t buy and sell homes every day, but I can?t imagine any Realtor being better than Richard. He kept us informed about everything that transpired and I never called that he wasn?t available. A true professional and a tribute to his profession. R. Sluder
Dear Richard, Thank you so much for all the help you have given me. I believe you to be such an unusually patient and cheerful gentleman, even when others would probably lose patience. It has been a pleasure doing business with you for the three properties that you have handled for me. You couldn't have been more helpful if they had been million dollar properties instead of the modestly priced places they are. Believe me, if I ever decide to return to Bradenton to live you will be the first person I call to get me relocated. God bless you in all you do. Gratefully, Betty Curtis
