All Realtors promise you great marketing.  However, great marketing requires an intimate understanding of marketing subtleties.  It takes a tremendous amount of skill, finesse, and just plain hard work to successfully sell a home at top price in today’s tough market.  

Rich Estes comes to you with a extensive marketing background that no other agent can equal, which includes an MBA in Marketing from Harvard University.  

But don’t think of Rich as a “foreigner from the East Coast.”  Rich grew up in Southern California and pursued his undergraduate studies at Berkeley and UCLA, graduating from the University of California at Davis as the winner of the Mechanical Engineering Departmental Citation.  

Marketing homes here in Orange County for more than 20 years, Rich has achieved a 98% success rate, including during the infamously slow buyers’ market of the early 1990s.  He has helped his clients realize superior sales prices, historically averaging 5% above comps.  His clients love him also for selling their homes quickly.  Even during the slow market of the early 1990's the average sales time was only 38 days.

Due to his success, Rich was recruited by the Director of Training of the largest real estate company in Orange County to be a seminar instructor.  He has taught up to 1000 agents at some of his seminars.
