Wow, what a wonderful experience we had working with Rick and his wife. They were so nice and helpful with all our real estate needs. Rick by far meet our expectations and went above and beyond for our family while we were looking for our home. His attention to detail is amazing! He was even helpful once our purchase was finished and closed and was still there to walk me through the process of being a first time purchaser of a home and new to the state of Florida. We were extremely satisfied and will use Rick anytime we need help with real estate and would refer him to anyone we know or meet.

after 1 yr of no results we heard about Rick, he worked daily staging, planting pots, painting could go on and on.....many problems came up when getting the house ready to close because of incomplete paper work way back when we bought the house 7 yrs ago....what a mess....Rick worked tireless on doting all of the I and crossing all of the t 's......would highly recommend him...

can't say enough about Rick, especially when I compare him to the realtors we dealt with the whole YEAR house was for sale before we listed with him.....

Rick De Barros goes well beyond what is expected from a real estate agent. He sets up house inspections (eveything), recommends companies if you need something extra, i.e. fencing for dogs. He doesn't waste your time with homes that don't meet your requirements (which you tell him up front exactly what kind of home your looking for). He really knows his business. He has every aspect/need of the client and fulfills all.

Rick did an amazing job for us. From the beginning, he had a well thought out marketing plan to help position our house properly. His level of professionalism was outstanding from always returning phone calls, following up on every lead to constantly re-evaluating where we stood in the market. He knew the area (the Inlets) inside out. Plus we were amazed at the creative ideas Rick always came up with to help position us. He was there with us 100% of the time and we always felt we had a great partnership. We truly cannot recommend him highly enough.

Rick's regular flyer, many online testimonials and recommendations from our friends were important factors in our decision to get his help to sell our home. He was very professional right from the beginning and clearly understood our market.

His assistance in cosmetic improvements and many open houses resulted in a successful sale.

Rick consistently went above and beyond to guide us through the complicated process in a market unfamiliar to us. His, and his wife's, efforts were greatly appreciated and we highly recommend their services.

When I started to consider selling my house, I noticed that Rick De Barros had recently SOLD 2 other properties on my street. Naturally, once I decided to list my property for sale, Rick De Barros was the first realtor I called and it was the best decision I ever made.

Rick De Barros was there from start to finish and always available when I needed him via text or email (no matter how late at night). I couldn't imagine an easier process. Rick worked with me at every turn - from listing price, open houses to private showings and during the negotiating / closing process. We have 2 little ones and Rick was very understanding of our situation.

I would without hesitation recommend Rick De Barros to my family and friends if they ever needed an outstanding realtor!

will guide you in staging your home as well as letting you know what home improvements should be done for the best possible outcome. He will explain all the stages of selling a home and is always available to answer any questions you may have. Bottom line Rick De Barros will always have your back when selling your home.

I've worked with many realtors over the years but Rick De Barros outshone all of them in his attention to detail, thoughtfulness about the selling process, staging, and going above and beyond time and again to ensure that the process was a smooth as possible for me. I had previously listed the property for six months with a local broker who did not perform. When Rick took over things began to happen, and within a matter of weeks we had moved to contract. I would strongly recommend Rick to anyone looking for someone to get the job done for them.

Rick De Barros made himself available 24/7 to answer any questions or resolve and problems we thought might be present. He did so in a timely fashion and we recognize that he did so faithfully while busy with other clients as well.

Rick De Barrows knows the region exceptionally well and, it was clear, he had contacts in all of the relevant County and State government offices and related industries when they needed to clarify or take an action to facilitate our purchase.

We would recommend Rick De Barros because of his genuine pleasant, down to earth personality and competent professionalism and very patient approach to bring us (his clients) up to speed and focused on the critical priorities. Our interests were fully protected with his incredibly deep knowledgeable of the local area, priority issues of insurance, current conditions and future potential concerns.

Rick De Barros is a very professional, hard working realtor, who gets to know the comps in the area to be able to price the home correctly. He worked hard consistently on the sale of our home, by holding open houses most every weekend and following up with prospective buyers. He makes sure that all documents are completed in a timely manner and that they are easy to understand and complete. Our closings with Rick have been very quick, with everything covered and no surprises. I would highly recommend using Rick for any real estate needs.

We had worked with Rick during the purchase of this home and were very satisfied with his work during that transaction.

Rick worked with our company's relocation contractor (not an easy task) but he handled the issues quickly and efficiently.

I wish there were a higher category than excellent when it comes to patience... Through all the issues (created mostly by the Relo contractor) his patience was extraordinary.

Thank you for all your help when purchasing and eventually selling this property.

We had talked to Rick a few times in the neighborhood. We could see that he had quite a few listings and the homes were selling. He just wasn't the 'typical' high-pressured realtor that was all talk and no show. He was so personable and very knowledgeable about the area where we were living, you would have thought he lived there. We definitely made the right decision in selecting Rick to handle the sale of our home, and he did it in an expeditious manner.

Rick 'staged' our house, had a video done, advertised it online, and it sold!

Rick went over the top - above and beyond our expectations in selling our home. He was very meticulous with every detail - if there was something that needed attention, he saw to it that it was taken care of or did it himself. Awesome! He and his wife,

Linda, are a great team, and we would highly recommend them to anyone who is

thinking of selling their home.

Rick and Linda DeBarros came and walked us through the sales process. Analyzed our home and expected sales value. Rick helped us stage our house to make a great sales presentation. He had a professional photographer take the room pictures to perfectlty highlight the special qualities of our house. The video he put online made me want to buy our house. Within an hour of posting online there were over 50 saved views. The house was shown the next day and we had a contract within 48 hours of listing. The remainder of the closing process went quickly with only normal hiccups. I would and will highly recommend Rick DeBarros to all my Florida friends. Great job Rick. thanks

Rick is by far and away the best agent we have ever dealt with. He was acutely knowledgeable in all facets of our search and transaction and a jewel to work with. Some of his attributes:

1) He said he would be patient and was.

2) Rick put together great searches and screened them for what we were looking for.

3) Rick knew the areas extremely well.

4) He did not pressure us in any way to buy.

5) He offered great advice when weighing our options.

6) His past contractor experience was a HUGE plus in spotting items and offering possible solutions.

7) When we were interested in submitting a contract, his comparables searches were extremely helpful in assisting us with determining a fair price.

8) He never missed or was late to an appointment, and we toured many homes.

9) Rick was pleasant, kind, and thoughtful.

10) He liaised well with the closing agent and was mindful of due dates.

11) He well understood the mechanics of the contract and closing parts of the transaction and he was extremely helpful during the inspection period. He was there for every vendor/inspector we had look at the home.

12) Rick also had a great grasp of CDDs, covenants, and county ordinances.

We could not offer any higher recommendation for an agent. Rick's caliber and professionalism is "off the charts."

Rick constantly went above and beyond. There were many challenges that Rick handled personally because I was living in Ky and could not be there. He dealt with pool guys,roof guys,plumbers,exterminators, tile guys and painters-just to mention a few!! He communicated clearly any feed back from prospective buyers and offered constructive ideas.

He is someone that I came to consider as a friend.

My only regret is that he is not in Ky when I ever decide to buy or sell again.

Thank You

to whom it may concern.

it is not very often one walks away from a home sale with a relationship that garners more respect than mine with rick de barros. he is so much more than a quintessential professional. never have i felt more protected and cared for above the basic home selling process. rick took etra time to explain marketing and contractual process to me but went above and beyond by doing extras like finding contractors to do repairs lawn care to plant trees and he even on many occasions oversaw the entire exchange. i have lived in many places and bought and sold many homes and NEVER have i had as much respect and trust in my agent. rick is the best there is and that is a simple fact. he is not only working hard but he works smart. he is very thorough and honest. i think compassion and integrity are the two most important assets rick brings to the table. i could not have made this huge life transition with out his continual advice support and smarts. i am very grateful also to rick for the advice given to me regarding a future purchase and events surrounding our move that did not need to be balls in his court. rick is a kind and caring individual who never loses touch with the individuality of every home sale.

he has more patience than anyone i know even when i was losing mine

I can't recommend Rick De Barros highly enough. I've sold 4 houses and never seen this kind of expertise and service. Rick was highly recommended to me as I was trying to sell rental property in Florida (though I live in Texas). I was constantly blown away by how professional he was- he had generated a market plan in a day that met my needs (sell it as is without repairs within 2 months or less) and comfort level and got the house listed with photos within 48 hours (the agent for our previous house took over a week, which we were told was fast), then sold on the first day of showing for the asking price. He then shepherded the process of me remotely signing documents and really said on the title company to make it all work out.

I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Associate Broker Rick De Barros of Century 21, Beggins Enterprises. In a world of diminished expectations, Mr. De Barros was a revelation. Throughout my recent business association with him I always felt as though I was his only client.

When I began working with Rick, I was in an unenviable position. I had recently lost my mother and I was the appointed executor of her estate. Living in Massachusetts, preparing and selling a Florida home from over a thousand miles away was going to be a daunting task. I feared the worst.

Then I was introduced to Rick. From our first conversations, he listened attentively as I explained my situation. He toured the property and drew up a list of "to dos." He recognized immediately that although the house needed some updating it still held great value. He knew the market value of those updates and made his recommendations. With me not knowing any local tradesmen, he used his extensive network of contacts to find me the right contractors in multiple fields. He acted on my behalf as a general contractor keeping me up to date with calls, emails and even pictures. His oversight was invaluable and because of it I did not have to make repeated trips to Florida.

He further helped me calculate the selling price of the property. His market research was both extensive and all-encompassing. His knowledge of this community was beyond impressive. By comparing my mother's home with other properties currently and recently on the market, he helped me set a reasonable listing price that still left room for negotiation. His hard work and conscientiousness on my behalf bore immediate fruit. The home sold quickly, on target and with all principals well pleased.

In summary, as a person, Rick was a pleasure to work with! Easy to talk to, a good listener, easy to contact and always prompt at returning calls or answering questions. Best of all, Rick De Barros is a Realtor who makes it his job to help you meet YOUR GOALS rather than his own! I highly recommend him as a great real estate broker, willing to go well beyond the expectations of a potential real estate buyer or seller.

Thank you Rick for your expertise and helping me through a very difficult time. I wish you only continued success.………….

Rick and his wife Linda worked very hard to sell our home. I am caregiver for my wife and it is a full time job. Our house had some repairs that needed to be made to make the house more salable. I did not have the time to look for contractors for the roof, the yard, some door frame repair, painting and on and on. I asked Rick if he could do all that for me and he did and did it well.

Rick De Barros knew exactly how to market our house after a previous realtor was unsuccessful. Ours was a tough sell - lots of construction and road noise, plus plenty of local competition. He took a vested interested in making the most of the presentation of the house including semi-staging which he even offered to pay for. He gave us weekly reports which were very thorough explaining everything that was happening from open houses, showings, marketing, all conversations and follow-up efforts. He had two open houses every weekend! He just went above and beyond to do everything he could to help us sell the house. We had an offer within days of having him as our realtor. He was also able to guide us with the offer and we realized quickly that first offer would not work to our benefit. He continued working hard until we got a second offer which went through very smoothly. Rick was excellent at communication, always professional, and very knowledgeable. He's a local real estate expert and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area. We wish we would have started with Rick De Barros because we would have sold the house much sooner! He is honest, competent, efficient and skilled in selling homes in the area and we are so thankful we found him when we did! THANK YOU RICK!

Rick was very professional and always communicated with us in a very short period of time regarding all aspects of the sale. He was never hard to reach or out of touch regarding what was happening on our property. Our property had a "whirlwind" of activity and sold within 48 hours, but Rick still answered and graciously forwarded all offers until the contracts were completed and in place. Even after the contract was in place, Rick answered calls and took information for potential buyers in case the contract did not go through and we had to go back on the market. With a number of full price offers, he went the extra mile to look at each buyer's situation and that helped us choose the correct buyer that had the best chance to complete the sale.

We have done alot of real estate transactions, so we are very knowledgeable in the process and have had many realtors. However, this was by far the best real estate transaction we have experienced, not because everything went smoothly, because it was a very unusual transaction, but because we were so impressed by Rick De Barros and his attention to every detail and always kept us informed, morning noon or night. Throughout the process, we always knew that Rick was fighting for us and wanted what was best for us throughout. I would recommend Rick De Barros to anyone and everyone, not just because he is a good realtor, but we are impressed by

Rick De Barros came highly recommended to us by very close friends. He is an outstanding broker/realtor!!! My husband Tom and I recently moved to Florida and Rick helped us buy our new home. When we made an offer on our home, Rick was on vacation (out of the country) and yet as soon as the offer was accepted he called us right away to let us know the good news!!!! We love our location, we absolutely love our new home, we love the neighborhood and we have Rick De Barros to thank for all of that.!!!!!!

To say that we were extremely satisfied with Rick is an understatement He is wonderful!!. Rick was available every step of the way. Tom and I felt the buyer was taking advantage of us regarding extra money for repairs, Rick was right there to help us. He wrote a letter to management regarding our problem and it was taken care of promptly.

Rick shared his great knowledge of the area and was always was available to answer any questions. His attention to detail was so helpful during the closing process. When Rick read some discrepancies in our contract, he immediately brought them to our attention so the closer could explain everything to our understanding. Rick helped us with EVERYTHING!!!

Rick DeBarros was a pleasure to deal with and he went above and beyond to make the purchase of my home a pleasurable time. He always conducted himself in a professional manner and I felt that he always had my best interest in mind as well as the seller's. I concluded my home purchase uneventful and at the end of the day I consider Rick DeBarros as a friend as well as an awesome real estate agent. I would recommend him and Century 21 to any one.

We had a great experience with our realtor, Rick DeBarros of Century 21 Beggins Enterprises. Rick worked tirelessly to sell our home. He was always available to prospective buyers, and had many innovative ideas to make our home more desirable. He held numerous open houses and advertised in his informative newsletter, written primarily to cover the Inlets neighborhood and the homes listed in this area. He has extensive experience selling homes in the Inlets and nearby neighborhoods.. His virtual tour of our home, including drone photography showing the boating access, was priceless and very instrumental in getting widespread exposure of our home to prospective buyers..

To anyone in the Inlets looking for an efficient, capable and experienced realtor, we highly recommend Rick. He always answered when we called, no matter how busy he was. Rick has integrity, is highly motivated, and was a pleasure to work with.

Regarding Rick De Barros;

I could not have been more satisfied working with Rick throughout this entire transaction. He is a knowledgeable, trustworthy, competent and reliable professional that truly delivered on his commitment. In my opinion, one of the best. He partnered with us and was a key reason for the successful sale of our property. Rick was a consummate professional and a true pleasure to work with. His commitment to presenting our home in the most attractive manner, providing guidance, performing the market strategy, outlining pricing recommendations, creating interest and so on, was second to none. .

We had worked with several other Real Estate agents in the past, none that I can say compare to Rick or his overall level of dedication. As most people would agree, when you contract with a Realtor you truly don't know how the interaction will proceed until it's too late.....Clearly not the case with Rick. I would highly recommend him to anyone selling a home in the Bradenton / Sarasota area, trust me, you will be satisfied.

Rick De Barros is the real deal! He brought his real estate newsletter to

my door every month that I lived here, and he just listed and sold my home

in the most efficient way, with minimal inconvenience. I had tried to sell

by owner months ago, but when I recently found my next home, I had no time

to waste and hired Rick.

He provided valuable advice on where to put my energy in preparing my

house for maximum results. Rick staged my house for buyers to appreciate its

benefits, and analyzed the market to correctly price it. He used professional

photography including aerial photos to show our convenience to boaters.

I have never seen another realtor provide so much information to buyers

and their agents. He installed information signs throughout the house

pointing out features not readily seen, and had everything they would ever want to

know about the property in a "Home Book" sitting on a table.

My house had its own website where buyers could learn about it and our

community. I could see how he quickly gave the listing phenomenal exposure.

Rick provided thorough communication, scheduling showings, and providing

timely feedback.

He handled negotiations expertly from offers to successful closing! I will

gladly recommend Rick to friends and family, and I will call on him again

the next time I need to sell.

Rick DeBarros had taken care of a relative of mine when she was looking for a house and came highly recommend. He was patient, professional, understanding and patient. I had been looking for a home in a very specific area for a number of years before meeting Rick DeBarros about 18 months ago. It was a long journey for both of us and a very satisfying one as I am thrilled with my new home. Rick never complained when I requested to look at a house and there were many.

Rick De Barros was recommended by friends who had worked with him in the past. They told us that he had been very helpful and professional during their search for a new home and it was their recommendation that caused us to select Rick as our agent. That was a good call!

We have purchased numerous properties over the past 20 years and have therefore worked with many real estate agents. Rick's attention to detail, his ability to anticipate possible issues and/or concerns, and his general knowledge of the industry and the area were excellent. He provided us with a significantly better level of service than any agent we have worked with in the past.

Our idea of what we needed kept changing and his ability to adjust (on the fly) to our "moving target" was remarkable. His patience is admirable.

Should we need the services of a real estate agent again... Rick is our guy!

We met with Rick when we decided to list our house because he was very active and visuable in our neighborhood selling other homes- The Inlets at Riverdale. We decided at that point to list with another realtor who was a friend of a friend. It turns out she didn't know what she needed to about the community and market relative to what Rick knew and it was clear 3 months in that she wasn't working all the channels needed to sell our home.

So we circled back to Rick after 3 months with this other realtor like dogs with our tails between our legs...because we should have just gone with him from the get go! He listened to the situtation to best understand our frustration and needs moving forward. He was ready to jump in and get our house sold within minutes of our conversations to transition the listing to him.

He did everything he needed to and more to get the house in mint condition! He even encouraged us to invest in upgrading the kitchen appliances from white to stainless steel. This was something we didn't want to do but he explained that we were up against new construction. If we invested, roughly $1200 at HH Gregg- which by the way he had already researched, it would more than pay off! He was right and convinced us to do so. He restaged, he multched, fixed the mailbox, etc. My neighbors would call me in Georgia and ask if we were paying him on the side because they noticed him at our house all the time doing things to improve the exterior, interior, etc. Considering we had already moved, we needed someone to take that ownership and do what was needed to get good offers and sell our home.

We couldn't have been happier with him and his overall services. He went SO above and beyond for us from the second he received the listing.It was WAY beyond what we expected from a realtor. He was a true partner in this process and earned every penny of his commission.

We'd highly recommend him to anyone and everyone looking for a world class hard working realtor!

Thank you RICK!!!

Exceptional in his understanding of real estate transactions, Rick forged a path for us to home ownership in a community we coveted. As complicated buyers due to new business ownership and past hurdles, Rick didn't flinch and truly helped us find and secure our dream home through his connections, wide breath of knowledge, personable nature, problem solving mentality and suggestions. To be honest, we thought our chances of buying this home were a long shot because it involved the seller waiting 4 months to close. However, Rick helped make it happen, and we are so thankful!

Rick by far stood out to us as the realtor to pick because of his professionalism and strong recommendation from good friends of ours. We were blown away with how Rick listed our friends' house with sharp, professional photography and wording. His polished listing of their home truly caught our attention. In addition, Rick has a strong presence in the neighborhood we wanted and could offer a plethora of inside information on the community.

Rick is highly professional, friendly and easy to work with. His savvy style, to us, sets him a part from other agents. We will love to recommend him to our family, friends and clients!

Rick De Barros worked above and beyond with us. He had our interests first and was not out to make a quick sale. He knew what our house was worth and negotiated for that price. Rick got this listing after it had been on the market for 3 months, (our original broker told us it was now a stale listing and needed a drastic price reduction).Well we gave it to Rick and he never once suggested a price reduction. He painted, cleaned and mulched the yard which was incredibly helpful especially since we were now living out of state.

Rick kept us informed on every open house, offers and showings. He was available weekends and nights and promptly returned all calls and emails. Rick kept everyone calm (me) at difficult times

I have recommended Rick De Barros to a number of people in our old neighborhood. I had been involved in real estate and Rick was the hardest working realtor I have seen. Rick does an excellent job of marketing and following up with potential buyers and most important keeping his client informed. Rick also was always available, nights, weekend,even holidays.

Rick De Barros is a terrific real estate broker!

Our house had been on the market for six months with another real estate broker without a single serious offer but houses were selling in our neighborhood and we were not overpriced. We cancelled that contract. Then we found Rick De Barros and never looked back. Since we had already moved out of the area about 250 miles away, he met our concierge at the house and within 24 hours had made many recommendations at very minimal cost which greatly improved the showing of the house. The previous broker had said the house was OK and didn't need any improvements for selling it.

Even though the house did look "OK" he told us it was not "catchy". Rick made many suggestions to improve the sales appeal of the house. (Rick not only has all of the real estate licenses he also has his college degree in design and architecture and worked in those fields for some years before entering real estate.) He said we should wash the outside, paint much of the inside, clean the floor grout (the house had beautiful floor tile everywhere), repair some minor problems, change the kitchen sink back splash, install crown molding on the kitchen cupboards and hire a staging company to furnish the rooms attractively. As we mentioned before we live out of town so we hadn't met Rick in person but our concierge believed he was trustworthy and knowledgeable so all of this discussion was by email and telephone. These changes would cost about $5,000-6,000 on a $450,000 house. We discussed paint colors, backsplash tiles, staging and the repairs with him and told him to go ahead.

Rick then took over. He contacted various vendors, took bids, got the lowest prices and hired them. He picked out and bought the paint and tile. All the while he met the vendors at our house and supervised their work to a very high standard. Lastly he had the stager furnish the house and then he was ready to put it on the market. He had a photographer take indoor, outdoor and drone aerial photos and put them on many real estate websites including his own at Century 21. All of this discussion and work took three weeks and the house was ready to sell. We discussed house price with him and decided to go higher than the price we had previously asked with the first agent.

He then contacted all the agents who had left cards previously and encouraged them to come to open houses and to preview a very different home before opening the house to buyers. Within a day we had two offers including the one that we took. The offer was at a premium to our asking price.

We greatly wish we had known Rick six months earlier and we could have saved a lot of money in upkeep and reduced our stress. Rick took care of everything and we did not have to make a single trip to Bradenton. In fact we didn't meet him face to face until just prior to closing. We were able to take care of closing long distance as well.

Rick De Barros is a top of the class realtor!
