Thank you so much for helping us find our first home. It is absolutely perfect for us! It was a pleasure working with you to find it! We plan to have you over for a BBQ and you can see all the fun projects we have planned for the house in action! We will be sure to point any of our friends in your direction if and when they are ready to buy! Thank you again for everything!!
Courtney and Austin, Windham, ME
Rick was a true professional. As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and questions we didn't even know we'd have. Rick knew everything we wanted to know and then some. We felt great having him represent us and he also let us know when we had to make decisions on our own. Great agent. We were very pleased with everything Rick did for us.
Elise and Patrick, Portland, ME
Rick Beal was the best...seriously the best! He was always looking out for us throughout our home buying experience...which took some time considering the fact that we were moving 1/2 way across the country. We highly recommend him...and hope that our daugher and son in law will connect with him when it comes time for them to purchase a home.
Charlie and Lucia, Westbrook, ME
Rick was an absolute pleasure to work with when buying our first home. He is extremely knowledgable and could relate things to us in layman's terms and gave great advice to make the whole experience one to remember for all the right reasons. I would not hesitate to recommend Rick to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Thomas and Sarah, Kennebunk, ME
And thank you again for helping us in 2006. You did an awesome job in our transition to Maine. In my book, you do your profession an honor with your hard work and integrity. You are the most professional realtor I have ever worked with. It would be good to catch up over coffee.
Bob and Jacqui F., Brunswick, ME
Rick Beal was an exceptional broker to deal with - he was always readily accessible day or night and in some cases, when we were drafting the offer, we were on the phone with him after we got our kids to bed at 10:30pm! DocuSign is another great tool that Rick used - which makes the contract signing process simple. He was always very patient with us as our house hunt started over a year ago. We must have looked at 30 houses together. He always came prepared and was punctual. Rick listened to our needs and wants and helped us navigate the stressful home buying/selling process beautifully. You have a keeper!
Adam and Dottie C., North Yarmouth, ME
Rick Beal was amazing. Professional, he handled difficult situations with the seller and seller's agent beautifully. We were reassured and calmed by him.
Jessica and Nino, Bailey Island, ME
We chose Rick Beal because he was willing to be at our house for every showing. He explained that our house was better than most in the community and it could be tricky to get top dollar because of our competition in town. We felt he could hi-lite the special features of our home that another agent would not notice to show his/her client. Rick sold our home after one showing! Thank you Rick and Coldwell Banker!
Mike and Sheila A., formerly of Gorham, ME
It seemed that Rick was available 24/7 and was always willing to take our calls and e mails. His attitude and responsiveness was amazing and we could not be happier with how smooth and effective he was. Selling our current home and buying a new home on the same day had the possibility of being tricky, complicated and lengthy. However it ended up being quick, efficient and positive.
Rick was a great advocate for us; reliable, trustworthy, communicative and kind. We are so happy with the outcome!!!
Mason and Meredith, Portland, ME
Rick Beal was recommended to me by the HR Department of a company where I was interviewing. When Rick learned I did not receive the position, he followed up with a kind e mail extended an invitation to stay in touch in case I made it to Maine. Fast forward a few months. I landed in Maine and immediately wanted to interview Rick to see if we would work well together. Within a few short minutes I knew that Rick was the right choice, no need to interview any other agents. He clearly understood what I was looking for and brought me up to speed on the local inventory and recent sale prices, he also explained that I would have to quickly make an offer if we saw something I wanted.
Rick accommodated my schedule, setting aside evenings and weekends to show properties. I don't know how he does it, but Rick was available whenever I needed him, answering e mails, drafting offers, counter offers, addendum after addendum and extensions. His level of skill was over the top, always answering his phone or returning calls, texts and e mails in a matter of minutes. I know he was working with multiple clients, but he made me feel like I was the top priority.
Susan L., Yarmouth, ME
Rick was great, have already recommended him to others.
Franz O. and Jaime G., Saco, ME
My wife and I decided to search for a condo in Portland, which was a disappointment, but meeting Rick Beal was not. He was intelligent and congenial and showed us he knew exactly what a couple our age was looking for. During the next several months he tried to find a condo to suit our needs and always comported himself gracefully as one place after another turned out to be not right.
We got to know Rick very well and the experience was most pleasurable. We came to understand that we were looking for a property that was rare indeed and consequently changed the direction of our search and found an excellent condo in Brunswick. Rick was with us every step of the way, counseling us and guiding us toward the place we would be happy. Rick was enormously patient and, quite frankly, we thoroughly enjoyed being his clients.
Dr. Walter (Ret.) and Dr. Ellie (Ret.), Brunswick, ME
Rick Beal is a professional, responsive, and a considerate individual in his approach to work as a real estate agent at Coldwell Banker. Thanks to his efforts, the whole process went smooth and quickly. I was surprised how fast and efficient the entire transaction was for me. He is a sincere and responsible individual who also weaves humor and an upbeat spirit in his day to day work. Rick certainly made a difference in the sale of my home. I am glad I found him and I would recommend him as your real estate agent.
Joe L. formerly of Portland, ME
Rick Beal helped us buy our first home in 2007, and recently assisted in the sale of that home and purchase of our next. Rick is friendly, resourceful and extremely quick to respond to emails, texts and calls. He answered countless questions immediately, was always punctual and prepared, and eased our minds throughout a very complicated process! We have formed a friendship with Rick, and highly recommend him every chance we get.
Pete S. and Becky N. of Scarborough, ME
We are loving the house. We are almost completely moved in and are looking forward to spending the holidays by our fireplace for the first time. Thanks again for your help, we couldn't have done it all without your patience and guidance.
Toby and Julie W. of Scarborough, ME
Rick Beal is the best of the best, I can't say enough good about him. He is professional, bright, knowledgeable, and just all around terrific! He put me in touch with all of the right people, I never would have been able to pull this off without him. He truly went above and beyond to be my eyes and ears here in Maine when I was in Manhattan to get this deal done. He represented me better than I could have hoped for.
Heather C. of Gorham, ME
My wife and I met Rick at an open house in 2010 when we attempted to sell our house in Westbrook with another real estate agent. During the open house, we felt like we were the only ones touring the residence even though there were others in the house. Right then and there we realized we needed Rick to be our REALTOR. Unfortunately we were unable to sell at that time, as that agent convinced us to list at a the wrong price. Sadly we ended up pulling our house off the market, refinanced to a lower interest rate and started making double payments in order to attempt to sell our home in the future. Rick told us to keep it up and look at the market in a year or so to see where we stood.
Needless to say, December of 2011 came around and we contacted Rick and offered him the task of both selling our current home and helping us find our "dream home." He quickly accepted and showed us there was actually a shortage of homes like ours on the market. Then he sold our house in just 11 days! We had 6 showings in the first 9 days and accepted an offer on Day 11. We listened to Rick's advice on staging, paint, etc. and it worked!
Rick was very thorough on the buying end too, again making us feel like we were his only clients. We knew he was busy but NEVER once felt like we didn't always get his undivided attention. We would also like to thank his wife and daughter for they were willing to share him with us. We bought our new home in March, couldn't be any happier and owe it all to Rick Beal!
Brad and Kelly C. of Windham, ME
From the start, Rick Beal worked with us to find our ideal home. He patiently answered all of our questions and addressed any concerns. I would highly recommend he and Coldwell Banker to anyone looking to buy or sell property.
Katherine and Chris H. of Standish, ME
Rick went above and beyond. My husband works long hours and Rick always made time to take us out and speak with us in the evenings and on weekends. He always looked out for our interests and alerted us when new homes came on the market. He worked very hard to make sure negotiations were transparent and speedy.
Carrie and Matt M. of Portland, ME
Rick Beal always made himself available to me for any questions I had. Whether it was an evening, weekend or even holiday, he returned my calls or texts promptly. The short sale of my house was a long and stressful process, but I felt very confident in Rick's expertise, and grateful that I had such a knowledgeable and professional agent by my side. I would recommend Rick to any of my friends, family or colleagues, he is an exceptional agent and an asset to Coldwell Banker.
Alex M. formerly of Biddeford, ME
Rick Beal was an outstanding agent who worked with me to find the location and the home that I wanted. He is an outstanding and caring person and very knowledgeable on all aspects of the real estate business. I cannot thank him enough for his support on the planning and purchase of my new home.
Pat R. of Gorham, ME
Our relocation company picked Rick's company and one other for us to choose from and it was very obvious from both their presentations who came on top. Rick went above and beyond to sell our home. He was always there for us as we have moved out of state and took great care of our needs and our home. If we move back to Maine, Rick will definitely by our real estate guy.
Bill and Ellen M. formerly of Scarborough, ME
Thanks for making our purchase on Foreside Road such a smooth transaction! It was a pleasure working with you.
Abby, Dos and Emilia D. of Falmouth, ME
Rick Beal is the best sales associate I have ever met. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable and professional when it comes to selling a property, but Rick also possesses many interpersonal skills that separate him from other real estate agents I have dealt with in the past. He is very understanding, patient, encouraging, has a lot of compassion and definitely goes the extra mile for his client. Short sale - one of the most difficult transactions in the real estate market made possible by Coldwell Banker. I will be forever grateful!
Alina R. of Portland, ME
I hope Coldwell Banker is paying for Rick's phone - he was answering questions all night and always got back at least by text within the hour.
Mike and Dani L. of Portland, ME
Couldn’t have done it without YOU, Rick! Thank you so much for the extraordinary amount of time and work and patience you committed to this transaction…we are all very grateful to have worked with you.
Allyson S., Loss Mitigation, MH Solutions of Portland, ME
You, and all the others involved in the sale, worked harder to get this deal done than anyone I’ve ever worked with before. To say you went above and beyond would be a gross understatement.
Mike F., Propery Manager, Westbrook (ME) Housing Authority
Thank you for being a fantastic buyer's agent and helping Josh and I purchase our perfect home. We love it and couldn't have done it without your help.
Angela M. and Josh B. of Cumberland, ME
Excellent Service. Definitely would use again and again.
John and Mary Ann F. of Gorham, ME
Happy Birthday and thank you so much for helping us find such a great house.
Katya and Jerry of Scarborough, ME
Our agent, Rick Beal, went above and beyond his responsibilities to help us in this complicated cross country move. His efforts exceeded our expectations and were very much appreciated.
Dr. Manly and Mary Jane H. of Yarmouth, ME
Rick is an "aggressive" broker, but in a highly professional way, with a pleasant and "laid-back" personality. The most amazing thing about Rick is that he treats one as though they were his ONLY client. Before, during and after the sale, he was always here to explain things to me. If you are buying or selling a home, I cannot recommend Rick Beal highly enough.
Dr. Jill W., formerly of Gorham, ME
When my husband and I interviewed Rick to be our Realtor, it was evident within the first 10 minutes that he would be our choice. After relocating 7 times around the country and working with several realtors in the past, we could tell immediately that Rick "wanted" the listing and was excited about it. He quickly went over marketing techniques that even we were not aware of in the past. He prepared our market analysis efficiently and let us feel "in control" of pricing the property but not without his knowledgeable advice. We listed our property on a Thursday and found our buyer at the first open house that Sunday. We had signed an offer within the first 2 weeks of listing the property.
We are very grateful to Rick for his outstanding promptness to return phone calls and his availability for appointments. We also just really liked him! We had fun during the process and we all refused to be negative during a really tough market. Rick also handled this sale during one of the most important times of his life, having a new baby! Congratulations to Rick and his wife on their new baby girl!
We would recommend Rick to be your Realtor! Without a doubt, this was one of the best experiences we have had in selling a home!
Thank You Rick!
David and Melissa B., Doylestown Pennsylvania, formerly of Portland, ME
Dear Coldwell Banker,
I would like to thank you for all of your time and hard work that went into our recent move to Maine. In particular, I would like to thank Mr. Rick Beal of the Portland office for his incredible diligence in finding us the perfect house! Relocating to Maine after 25 years of living in the same house in Massachusetts was a big decision on our part. Mr. Beal turned what could have been a very stressful situation into one that was both pleasant and productive.
On a personal note though, Rick was more than an excellent realtor, he quickly became a friend to the family, and shared our excitement and sometimes disappointments throughout the long process. When our home in Mass. Was slow to sell, Rick was encouraging, and helped up keep our focus on our future in Maine. We feel very lucky to have had Rick Beal as our realtor, and we thank him for making this time in our lives such an exciting one. To Coldwell Banker, and especially to Rick, our heartfelt thanks.
Alan and Susie G. of Windham, ME
My fiancée and I first met Rick Beal at an open house in Portland. The property wasn't what we were looking for, but as it turned out, Rick was!
As first time home buyers, and with an offer already on the property we wanted, we were scared out of our wits. But as the process went on, I began to realize why Rick had said in the beginning: "I'll be the level-headed one, there to calm you down as things get stressful". And boy, did they ever, but he made a scary, intimidating process very smooth, and within a month of signing with Rick, we were closed and moved into our first house.
Although we picture ourselves in our new home for years to come, there is no doubt that we will be giving Rick a shout when we're ready to sell.
Becky N. of Gorham, Maine
