I just can't say enough good things about Rich Laporte. He answered all of the questions I had, Rich took the time to acknowledge my cats, even Figaro. It's my understanding that Rich Laporte is up for GKRA award. In my opinion nobody deserves that award more than Rich Laporte.

I heard about my broker from a friend. I was explaining or complaining about the fact of "professionals" not taking their professions seriously and wish that I could find a realtor that took their job seriously and that would like to help me sell my house not just list it. He recommended Rich LaPorte to me and I was very impressed and wowed. I would recommend Rich to everyone!! He made listing and selling a house a breeze!! He takes his realtor job very seriously. If I wanted to sell my house on my own I would have done that. Before coming in contact with a realtor like Rich I felt that I was getting the same use from previous realtor as if I was trying to sell it on my own!! Thank you, Rich!!

We had an amazing experience with Rich as our broker. We were a bit worried that being in the neighborhood we were in that it would be a hard sell, but he got it sold faster than we ever dreamed of and at asking price!. We are beyond happy with our experience!

Rich was an all around great guy to work with. he was friendly knowledgeable and put our minds at ease with the whole process.

The advertising was awesome! we had never seen anything like it. The yard sign with the pictures and links for the house was great!

Excellent! I don't think we could of done any better anywhere.

This was our first home purchase so we were anxious, excited and full of questions. Rich LaPorte took the time to answer all of our questions and he was so knowledgeable that the anxiousness turned into excitement almost immediately. He had quite a calming effect throughout the entire process from looking at homes to the closing.

My wife was in Detroit 50% of the time for work during the weeks leading up to closing and Rich handled it with style. At one point, Rich was texting her daily to relieve any stress she had and to answer all of her questions. Even when my wife couldn't make it to closing, Rich thoughtfully included her and texted pictures of the closing so she didn't feel like she was missing out on a life event!

Rich was very helpful and we felt that he was extremely knowledgeable, approachable and trustworthy. We will be recommending Rich to everyone looking to buy a home! We not only found a realtor but we found a friend.

Richard LaPorte worked to his fullest capabilities to help me get to where i needed to be mentally and help me understand as a young first time home buyer everything involved from both me (buyer) and the seller. Richard was always willing to answer any questions i had quick and was always helpful. He helped me with both pros and cons of each house we looked at to decide what was best for ME for the present as well as my future. Richard was not my first realtor i had worked with, but he should have been. Everything went quick and easy with no complications. I would recommend Richard LaPorte to first, second or any type of home buyer. He always made sure i was understanding in what was happening at every step of buying.

Rich did an amazing job. Wasn't pushy like a lot of salesmen and he let us check out the house without him hounding us. He went above and beyond expectations. Real honest guy and will work as hard as he has to, to make sure the deal goes as smooth as possible.

Rich went above & beyond the day of the closing. My special needs daughter knew I had to sign papers to sell our house that day and kept asking if she had to sign papers too. I text Rich asking if he could print up a "dummy" form for her to sign and his response was "on it". He did so much more than print a form! He actually typed a letter about her making memories at the house but that it was ok to sell because she knew the new owner would make good memories too; she will miss living near Grandma Grandpa but can still visit them, and that she will be good for her mom & grow up to be a strong woman like her mother. She signed that letter and when we were all done, he gave it to her as her copy along with his business card. That single letter meant more to my daughter and myself than any of the "real" selling work he did. He showed good character as well as professionalism.

I was already living out of state when the house went on the market so Rich worked with me by email, text, and phone calls. He kept me informed of all showings and input from those that gave any on the house. He made it easy for me to handle as much as possible from another state; even offering to make arrangements for me to do closing without having to go back to Michigan if I couldn't or didn't want to.

Richard LaPorte is a fantastic Realtor! I was pleased with every aspect of my first home buying experience from start to finish. I first contacted Rich about looking for a house about 3 years ago. I couldn't get approved at that time for the price range I was interested in. My family's needs and wants exceeded our budget. So we put the search on hold and worked on "getting the horse before the cart", as Rich put it. Well, we finally got the horse and contacted Rich again a few months ago. He was highly recommended by very close friends so we wanted to go with him if possible. It couldn't have worked out better. Rich helped me get approved for the amount I needed, set up meetings about building a home, showed us several homes, and was just so accommodating! I feel like he steered us in the right direction for every turn. Rich is not only professional and polite, but also has this friendly personality and sense of humor that makes him more than just your Realtor. He also becomes a friend. I look forward to having Rich over to our new house for a BBQ this summer! I would recommend Rich to anyone and everyone who is in need of an amazing Realtor!
