Michael and I wanted to thank you sincerely for all of your attentiveness, expertise and time to help us find our dream home. Although it was not easy, you helped every step of the way to help make our transition to the West Coast as easy as possible. We appreciate all of your time and help more than we can express.
I have just recently purchased a home through Ric which took over the 4 months of searching, Ric and his team are extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided that guiding hand in regards to the subtleties of one location versus another. Another mention is Ric's patience throughout this search. I was personally all over the map in regards to what we were looking for in a home/location and wasn't the easiest client to plan for.
Once we decided on a home, Ric went into overdrive. His counsel and knowledge of the process let me relax and let the process play out. If something was not correct, Ric had the solution prior to even advising of the issue. I certainly hope each Amgen Colleague has the benefit of dealing with Ric as I am 100% sure my experience is the 'norm'.
If there is a person to whom I may contact directly to articulate my satisfaction with Ric as well as obvious importance of having a local agent assist newly on-boarded Amgen employees with their relocation, I would be happy to help.
We recently relocated to Thousand Oaks, CA from NJ. As one can imagine, relocation is never easy and can be quite daunting. Working with Ric has been an extreme pleasure because he is knowledgeable about the area, an expert in relocation, and caters to the needs of the buyers. He has successfully managed to win on negotiations that allowed for us to purchase the home we desired, at the price we were comfortable with and made the process quite seamless. Ric was always responsive, objective and consistently championed for us. We would most certainly recommend him to anyone!

Moving has got to be one of the most stressful events but moving from nearly 2,500 miles away adds another layer to that for sure. Thankfully we were able to work with Ric who made the whole process so much easier to manage. He was always available when we needed him and able to get answers to any of our questions very promptly. He knew the area inside out and was not only great a Realtor but also a great source of local information. If anyone is looking to work with a realtor in the area that is versed in all that needs to be done especially with complex relocation issues then I would be more than happy to recommend Ric again and again. Please feel free to reach out to me if you would like to speak further.

Ric Prete has been a pleasure to work with; he was quick to understand our preferences and needs. Ric has intimate understanding of the local real estate market, including the size and models of houses available at different price ranges, maintenance costs, the pros and cons of different neighborhoods and schools. Ric's deep knowledge of the local and state laws, required permits, general understanding of house construction methods in the area, and the closing process was particularly helpful for a person relocating from out of state
Ric, we really can't thank you enough for everything you've done and all the help, support and patience you've provided throughout this process. We were incredibly fortunate and are immensely thankful that you were our guide, representative and friend throughout this process. I really do hope that we can remain in contact because you've been an invaluable source of information and I know we would very much like to find a way to properly thank you for everything you've done. If there's ever anything you need from us, or if we can be of any help to you, please don't hesitate to ask, we are firmly in your debt.
David and I want to thank you for helping us to find our new home and locating close to our kids. You did such a wonderful job - so professional and yet so personable. We are thrilled with our home and the lovely neighborhood and look forward to many years of enjoyment here.
Over the past seven years, I have had the pleasure of working with Ric Prete on a few occasions to both buy and sell my first house and then again to purchase my current home. From the beginning, he listened to what I wanted and delivered on it! He and his team were prompt, professional, reliable, and went the extra mile to make sure I had a wonderful experience. I am now in a beautiful home I love, in a wonderful neighborhood and truly believe that it’s because Ric didn’t give up when other agents would have.
I have heard horror stories from co-workers who, working with other realtors, were made to feel like they were just a number. I kept hearing how their agents were never reachable to begin with and then would take days to return calls or respond to emails. Talk about making you feel insignificant! That was not the experience I had working with Ric. Every time I called, he either answered the phone or returned my call within a couple of hours. If I sent an email or text, the same prompt response was received. I have now worked with Ric for three transactions and each time I felt like I was his only client. Even a month after closing on the purchase of my home, I turned to Ric for help when I ran in to an issue and like the pro he is, he helped me immediately! Whether you are looking to buy or sell your home, I would highly recommend Ric Prete and his team.

Dear Ric, Thank you for all your help and expertise with our relocation to California. We are thrilled to be in our new home in Santa Rosa Valley and even happier to have an incredible backyard to enjoy as a family. We know the deal took many turns and we appreciate your attention to detail and guidance. The gift basket was beautiful as well. We will get unpacked and get some food stations ready for a nice family and friends BBQ this summer. Thanks for all you did to help us with this transition.
