    We were so happy that we were able to work with Richard over the last year looking for a home. He guided us through this crazy market through the ups and downs and we were finally able to find our new home exactly where we wanted and could not be happier! You won't regret working with Richard, A+++! Thank you Richard!

    Matthew & Nicole gave Richard 5 stars out of 5
    We had a wonderful experience with Richard! He helped us sell our home in no time. Richard laid out a great plan to help us list our house. We received multiple offers and he guided us through each step, explaining things we may not have understood. Richard was very informative and communicated with us throughout the whole process. He listened to us and worked very diligently to show us houses that met our criteria. Richard was easily accessible through emails, text messages, and phone calls. He answered so many of our questions. He has a great deal of knowledge about all aspects of selling and buying a new home. Richard was extremely professional and we highly recommend him to anyone. We would not hesitate to use him again.

    During my work career of 30 years I had to arrange the buying and selling of properties for my employer and I used many agents in the process. When having to sell my personal property I chose Richard and he handled everything in the process professionally, exceeding all my expectations. The next time I need to buy or sell a home Richard will get my call.

    Richard helped guide us through purchase of new construction home in Abingdon and selling our existing home. Provided open, honest, feedback to prepare house to be sold, including providing list of contractors to assist in with those last minute repairs. We were able to close selling and buying on same day. Richard is very patient and explains every step along the way. Highly Recommend

    Ryan & Suzanne gave Richard 5 stars out of 5
    We had a realtor when we relocated from out-of-state whom I called on when we first thought about moving closer into the city. I asked her to come and see our house and if she had suggestions for us. She said the house was fine and she could put it on the market for us. She said we should not do upgrades too much because we might not get a return on what we put into it. A year or two went by and our older child got an opportunity to attend a private school in the city; we then began to think seriously again about making the move. I had researched a few realtors who were highly rated, but I worried that they would not know as well the area of town we were coming from. The next day, we received a postcard advertisement for Richard. It revealed that he was from our same neighborhood and had experience with all parts of the city. When we met, he had multiple ideas to help us get our house ready for market and with the idea of getting top dollar. He not only gave us great advice, but also gave us great contacts for contractors, mortgage specialists, carpet specialists, etc. We had a buyer in 12hr after going on the market. We sold our home and purchased in the city. We are thankful to Richard for all of his help, knowledge, counseling skills for when times were uncertain-- we were in the middle of negotiations when covid hit. He was kind and personable to us and our family. He is good at what he does and you can tell he enjoys helping others. If you are in search of a great realtor, I would recommend trying Richard.

    We chose Richard as our realtor because he was a friend of a friend and we were not disappointed. He worked quite well with us in setting our asking price even after changing it at least twice. His walkthrough of our home was such an asset as he gave us pointers of how to stage the house to sell the fastest. And it worked, because our house was under contract within 12 days. Richard is very knowledgeable and thorough with every aspect of house selling and closing. Anyone who chooses Richard will not disappointed.

    Richard made this a smooth transition, from finding my new home to preparing my old home for the market. He had the resource solutions and contacts for the various issues I had with a 27-year-old house and a garage full of 'stuff.' After seven showings, I had two solid offers '” one over asking price '” within 24 hours of listing. That's hours, not days. Richard has a great personality and calming demeanor to deal with the ups and downs of buying and selling a home. I recommended him to friends who became his clients, and they were extremely pleased with him and the quick sale of their home. I wholeheartedly recommend Richard McLemore to help you sell your home as well as buying a new home. He's the best!

    Richard was so much help with the sale of my house. He just took control with letting me know what I needed to do to get the house ready to sale. He gave me names of people to contact to get jobs done if I didn't know someone. He made me feel like I wasn't in this by myself. I would highly recommend Richard to my friends.
