    Linda gave Rico 5 stars out of 5
    I recently had the pleasure of working with Rico when looking for my home. From day 1, Rico was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for homes to view based on what I was looking for. All throughout the negotiations and closing Rico was there quickly handling any issues that may have risen. If the time ever comes when I will be looking for a new home, there isn't any question on who my Realtor will be!

    Mr. Daksh gave Rico 5 stars out of 5
    It has been amazing to work with Rico on purchasing our first home. Rico is very knowledgeable and professional and is always on top of things. He is easily accessible via text/phone and is a great communicator. He answered or got us the answers to all of our questions and was very patient with us. He walked us through the piles of paperwork and kept us up to date on the home buying process from scheduling visits all the way to closing. We HIGHLY recommend Rico! - Daksh and Manmeet

    Mr Rico Castillo is real estate agent with professional expertise and an asset for any one who would happen to recruit his services. Clients will benefit from his experience in Real Estate Sales, Property Management, Insurance, Mortgage Lending, and Home Valuations, and more importantly, his unfaltering devotion, patience, and professionalism. He stayed true to us well after we bought our home and we found that to be astonishing to say the least. I will highly recommend Mr Castillo real estate services to my friends and family in a heartbeat.

    Rico was so helpful in helping my wife and I buy our first home. He listened to exactly what were looking for and was open and honest during the entire process. After our first time meeting he made us feel really comfortable. We could reach him at all times of the day to answer any questions we had. Thanks so much for your professional services and will definitely work with him to find our next home some day.

    Rico is an expert and in his element as a realtor. He answered my questions quickly and educated me throughout the process. He is talented at negotiating and people skills. Rico is kind and patient. A gentleman and professional. I knew I could count on Rico to get the home of my dreams. The home checked all the boxes and more that I was hoping to purchase. Thank you Rico!

    It has been a great pleasure to work Rico. He was great in keeping us updated, he did all the necessary work without going back and forth and without any unnecessary delays. It was really easy for us to get house sold because of Rico's expertise and they way he handled all the details. In short, we could not find a better agent than Rico. Thank you, Kazi and Sonia

    Matt gave Rico 5 stars out of 5
    Rico was great in helping us find the right home in the right area. He was also great in helping us negotiate with the sellers to make sure that we got the best deal. We did hit a roadblock after the appraisal was done on the sellers home and negotiations began again, but Rico did a great job keeping us informed, and continued to advocate for us during the process.

    Luke gave Rico 5 stars out of 5
    Rico made buying my new home less stressful and more enjoyable. He is always accessible by text, email, or phone. His patients with my children is commendable; it's certainly better than mine. My family always looked forward to seeing him on our house hunting days. He had many good suggestions for narrowing our search and chose properties to see that fit our criteria. In the end, Rico helped us find a beautiful home, under budget and move in ready. By the time we finished the home buying process Rico was more my friend then agent. I highly recommend choosing Rico Castillo to help buy or sell your home. You will be glad you did.

    Rico is the epitome of a real estate professional. He is punctual, informed of the latest trends, and extremely patient when the process is demanding. He is always warm and offers his opinion based on his vast experience. Rico tailors the home selections to your surface requests, but takes the time to understand what YOU REALLY WANT and makes the experience enjoyable. Rico helped my life by helping me learn and have success at purchasing a home. I truly cannot say enough about how great he is. Lou

    Rico is one of the best agents I have the pleasure to work with. He listened to what I wanted and gave me ideas on what was best for me. He was ready to show me the houses I wanted to see and gave me very good suggestions on what to improve on the houses I liked. He was very prompt to answer all my questions, and did a great job getting me the house I like. I got the keys yesterday, and I'm pretty happy with his service. I would recommend Rico to anybody who wants an honest opinion and a diligent real state agent, he has your best interest in mind.

    Katrina gave Rico 5 stars out of 5
    Rico was very dedicated and supportive when he was helping me find a home. For not being totally familiar with the area I was searching in (Oak Park/Tahoe Park) he did very well. After a few were lost to higher bidders, which worked out for the best, we found one on the border of Colonial Heights/Tahoe Park, for the exact purchase amount I hoped for. I'm happy with my home thanks to Rico.

    Rico spent a considerable amount of time showing me homes for over a year. He was very knowledgeable with the mortgage loan industry and helped me understand how the process of buying a home works and what to expect, etc. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home, especially 1st time buyers.

    Andrella gave Rico 5 stars out of 5
    WOW....What can I say about Rico? Too many things to number. When we were looking for a home in 2009-2010, we found Rico and he was helpful in answering all of our questions (and we even looked at a couple of homes). After consideration my wife and I decided to wait to buy a new home. In October of 2014, we decided to reach out to Rico and really give home buying a shot. We reconnected and we really loved Rico's personality and his professional demeanor. We explained our needs and wants and designed listing based on his recommendations and really went to bat for us during the negotiation process. Needles to say, the seller accepted our offer in late December of 2014, we closed late Jan 2015 and now we are preparing to move into our home. Rico's dedication to his clients I believe is SO hard to find and I appreciated him answering all of my questions with honesty, and truth and not being all about himself or just getting the sale. He is now apart of our lives forever and we recommend Rico to anyone who is looking to move and find a place called home! :) Thanks Rico you have changed our life forever and helped us have a beautiful home to raise our children and expand our growing family!!

    Roe gave Rico 5 stars out of 5
    Rico has gone above and beyond to find me the perfect house!!!! I started my search in October 2011 and finally closed in May 2012. We must’ve looked at about 30 houses and submitted 10 different offers before finally getting the perfect house (It wasn’t Rico’s fault it took so long. There were actually numerous factors: seller, personal, housing market, other buyers, etc). Rico was more than patient throughout this period. And when we were ready to close, there was some issues with the seller. Rico sacrificed a good portion of his commission to close the deal (who does that now a days?!)!!! In addition, Rico provided vital advices throughout the process. He is more than knowledgeable about the housing market and process of buying a house. And in most cases, realtors are afraid to “ruin their reputation” by submitting low offers on behalf of the buyers; however, Rico was willing to submit the offer I’m comfortable with even if it seems low. He is always prompt with returning my calls and emails and ready to provide information if needed. Also, he is always available whenever I want to view houses. He truly makes you feel as if you are his only client. Overall, I was more than impressed and satisfied with the services I received from Rico. He pays attention to client’s preferences and feedbacks to find the right house. I will definitely recommend anyone I know that’s looking to purchase or sell a house to Rico! I also plan to use his services in the future!!!!

    I had another agent and earlier experience with Ziprealty was not good at all. I made so many requests but without any property showing (not even personal response to our requests) until switching to Rico as our new agent. Rico is very professional agent in many aspects. What I have never failed to be impressed with Rico is how efficiently he works. Though he was busy serving many clients, he consistently addressed all my queries with amazingly prompt turnaround time. Rico is also technology savvy, which means a great deal to me. Imagine I had to deal with all faxed papers in lieu of e-delivered documents????I would??ve been worn out quickly before securing a property. Home purchasing is by nature stressful, and my experience is no exception. Working with Rico makes a difference, however. His passion for real estate is inspiring, and, during our time of working together, I learned not to be deterred by stress or disappointment, but to turn every event into a fruitful learning experience. I could honestly say home shopping with Rico is an enjoyable process. Excellent communication skills, efficient work style, and dedicated customer care ?? that??s how Rico helps clients to succeed. I would certainly refer Rico to my family, friends, and business associates for their real estate needs.
