Mr Richard Bloom showed me and my daughter many properties and never rushed us. As a first time home buyer with no knowledge Mr Bloom patiently explained every step and referred me to an excellent lawyer Mary Brady Attorney at Law who also is the best and i would recommend her to anyone for her expertise in real estate. This transaction would never most likely have occurred without ZIP realty. I cannot praise enough Richard Bloom of Zip and the lawyer he suggested Mary Brady and also very importantly her legal aid Rose Marie Settanni who all made this possible. And ZIP realty web. Thank you Richard Bloom, Mary Brady and Rose Marie Settanni for all of your attention. I will never forget you and neither will my co purchaser daughter Melissa Alanna Murphy who also appreciates all your professional dedication and has said so many times. I have recommended ZIP realty to those I know shopping or selling with complete confidence.

I bought and sold properties several times before. What a pleasure it was to work with Richard Bloom who topped all my past experiences with his exceptional, attentive, knowledgeable service far beyond my expectations! After more than a year of constant searching with other agents, Richard found for me right away a place to start a new happier life. Now, after my move is done, I will have to sell my old place, and my agent will be Richard once again - without a doubt. Impecable, caring service.

Richard Bloom is an agent with plenty of passion for representing the buyer. He showed extremely high levels of professionalism and determination during our house search. He worked with good fortitude and foresight to get us the right house for the best price possible. I and my wife had a tight and haphazard schedule, but Richard was very flexible and always able to fit us in for a showing or for other meetings. He understood our family??s needs and lent a personal touch to our home search process. He almost held our hands and walked us through the whole process. After the contract, Richard worked diligently with the sellers to resolve many inspections issues. Overall, it was a great asset to have Richard as our agent and we will not hesitate to use his services in the future.

Richard is a very hard working individual and never stopped until we had exactly what we wanted, not what he wanted to sell us. He traveled on many occasions from Northbrook all the way to Roselle to show us houses which is quite the daunting task in itself. I would recommend him to anybody. He's very knowledgable about the market and assisted us in paying the price that we wanted to pay for our house.

Richard took the time out to listen to the over all stastistics of what I was looking for. Richard did only show properties that were in the guidelines, never over powering to look at higher priced properties. I believe Richard does what I haven't seen in the past realators, he puts his clients in the driver seat and commission in the trunk. Richard started looking at properties for me while I was out in California for work and he assisted my son in showings of the properties and never once went off to a different direction. I am glad that I had the chance to meet and socialize with Richard thruogh the process of finding a property to fit my needs and expectations. As I started the process to buy another property a friend of mine referred Richard with high regards and when I hear of another in need of a realator I will refer Richard with high regards as well. I have never looked at the Zip Realty site nor did I need to. With the foot work, effort, confidence, and determination that Richard presented to me, he is the the back bone to the realty office. Thanks to Richard alone I will feel confident in refering others to him and know that they are in the best hands in purchasing their properties.

Not only was he knowledgeable, but a had a very likeable & dry, yet witty, personality :) Anyway, if you guys give raises, make sure he gets one. Thanks ZipRealty & Richard!

1) He refused pay for an interpreter. I explained him about ADA rights for disabilities. 2) He didnot replied to my questions. 3) He didnot show up for our closing til end of closing. 4 He told me that buyer's loan was approved, so i flew here and found it was not approved, i had to put all things in storage, cancelled U-Haul truck, and bought plane ticket to go home, then i got word from lawyer that the buyer's loan finally got approved on last day prior to my flight to home. I had stress fighting for an interpreter so i can communicate and understand whats going on at the closing meeting, they billed me for interpreter. I wrote email and complained to mr. bloom's boss Terry Semmen and explained the problem i had with mr. bloom and is expecting to hear from Terry by aug 3rd. I have not hear from him yet. Like i said in my previous email to Terry, If i not hear from him by Aug 3rd then I will file a complain and sue them for refuse paying for interpreter on Aug 3. They didnot comply the ADA law.

Richard was a great agent to work with. He didn't pressure us into buying something. In fact, he actually discouraged us from taking one place, insisting that we keep our options open. He also took the time to show us numerous properties, as well as search for us. Being first time buyers, he explained the entire process to us and was avaialbe for questions around the clock! Not only that, but Richard had a great personality...actually, quite a funny guy and a pleasure to be around. If we sell/buy again in the future, Richard will be the agent for us! He is an asset to Zip realty and should not be overlooked! If it wasn't for Richard, Zip would have been just another real estate web site! Thanks Richard! -Anthony Vizzari & Andrea Wurster
