Rick is so damn good he sold the same condo I owned in Gainesville TWICE! True story! Rick and his family are long times friends from our time together in Southwest Florida. So, when I decided to sell my investment condo because my last child was graduating, who else would I call but my friend Rick. Even though our families are extremely close, there was no cutting corners, Rick was extremely professional and knowledgable. He met the photographer on site, he did the listing in an expeditious fashion and had me on the market in short order. With his marketing knowledge we had showings immediately and ultimately a buyer. Rick negotiated hard to get me the price he thought the unit deserved and was successful. Rick put together a contract that was fair, but protected my interests. A week out from closing the foreign buyer was unable to finalize the deal. Rick called me with the bad news and also informed me he would have it back on the market in a few hours. Much to my delight I received another phone call from Rick three hours later alerting me to the fact that he thinks he has a buyer from his network of agents and would know shortly. The next day we received an offer, for more money and accepted. The unit has closed, my son graduated and all is great thanks to the tenacious sales and marketing efforts of my friend and fellow Gator Rick Barton. Thank you Rick!!! I owe you my friend!

Rick Barton is a professional and hardworking real estate agent. Rick answered every question and helped us to make informed decisions. We accepted the price that we were comfortable with. At last, the closing process was very smooth and executed by a very knowledgeable real estate attorney. We would recommend Rick to anyone and looking forward to working with him soon.

Words can't express how amazing it was to work with RIck. He went over and beyond to please. He is honest and doesn't focus on just selling you a home, but helping you find the RIGHT home. We looked over 10 properties before deciding on the ONE. He has a sense of urgency and is really passionate about what he does. If you are looking for a realtor, look for Rick -- and if Rick isn't available, look for Carla. She is also amazing too.

Richard went out of his way to find the perfect place for us. He communicated with me through out the entire buying process. I am thankful that he was on my side.
