"Super Realtor and Friend…Richie Redondo
I first met Richie back in 2011 when I called to inquire about the possibility of rental/lease management for a house in Mandeville, LA. My family decided to lease the property temporarily after we inherited a lovely house in the Quail Creek Addition. We all lived out of town so we felt that we needed some help whether we were going to lease or sell the property, and I only had 2 weeks in town to get all affairs in order.
Richie came to the house right away, evaluated the property and was able to recommend repairs and improvements that should be made, suggest and justify a fair rental price and explain how the process worked.
The contract for lease that I was to consider was to assist us in screening tenants (background checks, credit rating, income verification, etc.), showing the property and securing deposits. Richie helped me go over expenses for the home like the homeowner’s insurance costs, homeowner association fees, as well as the repairs and work that needed to be considered in order for the house to be leased.
He understood that the house was very sentimental to me and that we were still grieving the loss of our family member. I am sure that he went “above and beyond” the call of duty on that very first day, and he has continued demonstrating that same work ethic ever since. He is a hardworking, family man and it has always been evident to me that family is important to him, whether it was his or mine.
He ended up leasing the house for us 2 times until we finally sold it in April of this year. Both tenants were excellent and the selling process was also seamless due of his efforts and advice. Richie has, on many occasions, done so many extra things for us during the years, from advising me on issues pertaining to leasing the property, inspecting the landscape and contracted labor and even cleaning the house before a new tenant moved in! Since I live in Oklahoma, he has always made sure that everything was acceptable to me and my family, the tenant and eventually the buyer. He earned that sale and has made a lifelong friend in me. I’m sure he is glad that we finally sold that house though! June 2014
