The Consummate Professional

I contacted Rick nearly a year before we met as I was in Ohio and he in Florida. He stayed in contact without being intrusive until we met in Febrary 2016. Rick is the consummate professional. We valued his knowledge, expertise and care he showed for us while determining our home purchases. I wouldn’t think of ever using another realtor. He’s the best!

Under Contract In One Week!

Rick got our home under contract in ONE WEEK which was amazing considering it was listed previously for over a six month period with minimal results!!! Treats people and gives people his personal time and attention as if YOU are his only client (which isn’t true – he is very busy and active). If  you want action versus talk, contact Rick!

Clark Moyer

A “True Partner”

Rick certainly is the agent you want to partner with if you truly want a “true partner” to sell you home. He is by far the most passionate, hard working agent I have ever come across ! I would not hesitate in using him again or telling my friends he is the #1 agent to consider selling your property or buying in the area. His knowledge of the local area, my community, is 5 star. After listing our home for sale, after only 6 days we were able to sign a binding contract to sell our home for our desired price point and the second home on our street to go under contract by Rick in 6 days or less on the market in the past 45 days …. Rick is by far the agent to sell your home or purchase one in the Fort Myers area.

Fantastic Realtor!

My wife and I traveled 1100 miles to meet Rick, and he made our experience the best ever. Rick helped us with hotel accommodations and worked three days straight with us to find the home we ended up purchasing. Rick’s attention to detail for our wants and needs was truly impeccable. He always answered or returned our phone calls within minutes, which is unbelievable. Other realtors in the area would take days to return calls…not Rick; he was always Johnny-on-the-spot. Rick is truly a person that cares about your needs and makes you feel like you’re his only client. This is probably why he is rated in the top one percent best realtors in the state of Florida. I really can’t begin to say enough about this fantastic realtor! He’s the best and made us feel like family!

Knowledgeable and Enthusiastic

Rick understood the Cape Coral/Fort Myers area and what we were looking for in a new home. He was very helpful in understanding the potential additional fees that we could encounter in Florida vs. New Jersey and made sure we kept this in mind during our search. Since we were doing our closing by mail, Rick did the final walk through/inspection of our home in Cape Coral for us which saved me another trip. Rick is just a knowledgeable and enthusiastic real estate agent who ensures the home you find is a match to your expectations. I have recommended Rick to other buyers and will continue to do so.

Look NO Further!

** If there”s anyone buying or selling who”s looking for the BEST most efficient real estate service….Look NO Further !….Rick LaVan would be, by far your BEST choice! I flew to Florida from the west coast….At noon(2 hours after landing) I was looking at 8 properties with Rick. He had extensive knowledge of the local area. By 7 PM I was making an offer on an amazing property with Rick guiding me though this process all the way (he actually did ALL the work !). By the end of the following day, after several more calls and offers we(HE) had secured the purchase and ALL parties were completely satisfied. Without Rick’s amazing help and advice, I would have been totally “lost” ! He was like a “maestro” showing and explaining every detail of the homes …and constantly communicating on the phone with the listing agent. He had my best interests and concerns as his top priority at all times. I was extremely happy afterwards. I”m now moving to Florida..Rick made it easy!

It”s by far in your “best interest” to choose Rick LaVan as your Real Estate “Guru” guide ! Trust me (one that knows) …”Your” interests are his MAIN concern ! He “has your back” for sure !! Sit back, let him work his magic and enjoy the “ride”! When I need any help with real estate in the future…he’s my 1ST phone call !!

Knowledge, Expertise and Professionalism!

Knowledge, expertise and professionalism were qualities we sought when choosing a realtor in the Ft. Myers area. Rick quickly proved himself in all areas, both on the phone and in person. We particularly appreciated his straight forward approach; his ability to present viable options while allowing us to draw our own conclusions, based on our needs. We feel we’re in good hands as our home is being built. Rick really is a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend him.
