Certified Luxury Home Marketing Experts; Million Dollar Guild Members of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing (ILHM); Certified Residential Remodeling Specialists, Certified Residential Construction Specialists, and Certified NEW Home Specialists!
As Team Leaders of The Luxury Home Marketing Experts, and My Diamond Group, Rick and Donna have built a highly successful business founded upon the core principles of Customer Service & Customer Satisfaction. Their 20+ years in real estate has resulted in hundreds of successful closed transactions, extremely satisfied customers, customer referrals, and repeat business. Their primary focus is on selling Fine Homes & Luxury Estates and delivering exceptional results to their clients. In addition to selling luxury real estate, which includes new construction, Rick and Donna help sellers looking to sell and move up to a larger home or downsize to a smaller more manageable home.
With respect to Residential Remodeling and Construction, Rick & Donna have helped their sellers successfully remodel, update, and stage their homes so they get top dollar when they sell. Rick and Donna have also helped several of their buyers find a suitable home that meets the majority of their needs and criteria but requires some updates and/or functional improvements to make the home work for them, and their lifestyle, while appealing to their own personal style. Rick and Donna have consulted with these clients and recommended much of the updates, improvements, selections, and resources to ensure a successful sale down the road when their buyers need and want to sell. When it comes to new construction, Rick and Donna have helped some of their buyers find a suitable lot, interview and select the right builders for the job, and helped with some of the decision-making when asked. And finally, Rick and Donna have helped existing homeowners make wise remodeling decisions to their homes so they can age in place and enjoy their home until they or their families are ready to sell it with Rick & Donna down the road.
Rick & Donna have extensive market knowledge and experience throughout Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Medina, and Summit counties. This vast knowledge helps their clients -- especially those relocating to the area -- find and compare homes they have seen and then select a home that best suits their needs, budget, lifestyle, and more.
Prior to real estate, Rick and Donna were both International Customer Training and Communication Managers with ABB (ASEA Brown Boveri), a global high technology company focused up robotics, power, heavy electrical equipment, and automation technology. Their jobs took them all over the world, working with both international clients and employees, negotiating multi-million dollar service and training contracts, and more.
Rick, a 10-year Navy veteran, is originally from Paris, Tennessee but spent many years in California. Donna is originally from Rochester, New York. They have six children (3 boys and 3 girls) and 12 grandchildren.
