Shane was a pleasure to work with. He was knowledgeable, responsive, and hand held us throughout the whole process. We... really liked that he was able to step in and offer guidance when needed, but also let us feel in control of the process. Shane was also able to effectively negotiate a better price than we were expecting, which was a great ending! I would highly recommend Shane and his group - they are easy to deal with, have exceptional contractors, and deliver above expectations.read more

Dear BramThis is a lot to take in. You do this often but this is only our 3rd time ever buying a home. Our magical... house is this way because we have had a magician lead us - level headed and reasonable, experienced, accessible and knowledgeable. I can't wait to use this house for what it's really for: living, loving and being with our family and dearest friends like you.read more

Shane Little and Mark Richard’s made what could have been the most stressful time, enjoyable and easy. Their team... knocked it out of the park with preparing and working around me and my needs; meanwhile Shane and Mark expertly created a solid strategy and marketing that had my house sold in 2 days and WELL over asking! Not a small feat in a market that was changing by the day! (For perspective - 2 of my neighbours put their houses on the market a week after mine - one didn’t sell and the other is on the market for over 6 weeks and still hasn’t sold).Shane also has been so helpful after the sale; including recommending movers that made my move seamless, quick, and easy!Their white glove amazing service, expertise, and professionalism is second to none!!When I move back to the beaches I won’t go with any other real estate broker then these guys! I look forward to working with them in the future!read more

This is going to sound ridiculous, but Shane Little and his team were so wonderful that after successfully selling our... house (for well over asking) and helping us find and buy our dream home (for well under asking), I was actually sad that the process was over because it meant not getting to chat with Shane every day. He’s that lovely! Everything Shane and his team brought to the table - strategic advice on how to get the best price for our home, a design team that staged our home so nicely we considered staying, great negotiating skills that got us a fantastic deal on a new home - everything exceeded our expectations. Plus Shane and his team really make you feel like you are their only client. I don’t know how they do it. I recommend Shane and the Richards Group to anyone I know who is looking to sell or buy a home in the area.read more

We recently used Shane from the Richards group to sell our property in Toronto. Shane expertly led us through this... process; his knowledge and patience truly made a stressful experience much more manageable. He has gone above and beyond our expectations at each step of the way; we definitely put our trust in the right place for this transaction. Shane and his team are exceptional - they have all of the details worked out and when there were unexpected bumps in the road, they were clear in their communication, acted professionally and with integrity. We would highly recommend using Shane and the Richards Group!read more

Shane Little gets the job done better than anyone I know. He anticipates his clients' needs, thinks outside the box,... and really listens. He treats his clients as if they are his only clients. Shane's personal touch was so meaningful at a time when we were making some big life decisions. To boot, he and Richards Group are huge community supporters - they add tremendous value to the Beach. I cannot say enough good things about Shane - I have referred many friends and colleagues - all of whom have been just as impressed as I am!read more

Great experience working with Matt. He was knowledgeable about the market and willing to educate a couple first-time... home buyers. Matt did his homework on houses we had already visited on our own and gave us his actual views (both pros and cons) on properties we considered. We would definitely consider Matt for a future purchase!read more

I am truly impressed with everyone at the Richards Group. Bram especially is a highly capable and experienced agent who... guided me through the selling process. It was a stressful time and his steady hand, kind words, and exceptional advice was a godsend and got my place sold in a challenging environment within 8 days! The staging I believe helped me sell quickly and for a great price. I am a senior and I really appreciated the fact that I did not have to lift a finger throughout the staging process. Their white glove service is greatly appreciated. Photos and repairs were also very well done. Thank you to the entire team!!!read more

From the initial consult with Bram I knew I was in very capable hands. I could not be more pleased with the quick sale... of my home. The Richards Group runs like a well oiled machine. Everyone on the team moved the home along from initial consult, to review of defects and improvements, to repairs and staging and then listing— I am impressed with how I was given white glove treatment all throughout the process. I’ve bought and sold 8 properties in my time and no other realty brokerage or agent has been as amazing as these folks. Bram and crew deserve only the highest praise. Thanks for getting me top dollar for my home and in 1 day!read more

Matt Foster from Richards Group got me what I asked for: a good price and quick sale of my home. We didn't agree on... everything needing done... but in the end that's why you hire an expert, for their knowledge and experience. His team helped make my home look amazing (I briefly considered "maybe I shouldn't move!") and sold with multiple offers. Realistically I would have done fine with another realtor - given my home and location - but with Matt... I DID AMAZING! Thanks Matt Foster! Worth every penny!read more

As soon as Bram Goldman became our agent, he and his team hit the ground running, helping us prioritize the important... stuff in getting our house sale ready. At the same time, Bram kept a keen eye on new listings that matched what we wanted.Bram is a pleasure to work with, is focused and has a great eye for detail. His advice is sound, he takes time to understand the homeowners perspective at decision time and is very responsive. He finds a solution for any bump in the road. Sam from the Design and Client Care team is incredible; quick to present a vision board that was stylish and focused on the right opportunities for improvement. She also efficiently took care of scheduling and directing trades.From the beginning, we felt like we were in great hands with The Richards Group and in the end, we sold our house for more than expected. We couldn’t thank Bram enough for taking a lot of the stress out of the journey and for his team showcasing our home in the best way possible.read more

I came across Bram Goldman's profile on The Richard's Group website while searching for a realtor to assist in selling... an investment property. Previous experience with other agents had been less than stellar.Bram proved himself to be an exceptional realtor who can pivot quickly, is an excellent negotiator and is a genuinely nice person!From start to finish Bram was there with strong market knowledge and good advice.Samantha is a master when it comes to aesthetics. Her team made the unit look it's best.The unit sold in 21 hours at a price that made happy.The Richards Group's home selling system makes selling your home a stress free enjoyable experience.read more

Have worked with the Mark Richards Group twice over the last 6 years. They're staging efforts are second to none (and... we've seen a lot of alleged staging efforts on properties we looked at to purchase) and believe it had a real impact on selling each house we sold through their group. They have a real "team" oriented approach and everyone is responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommend their services and our thanks to Sabrina Cameron who is a gem to work with.read more

The Mark Richards Group is the go to for your real estate needs! Particularly, our experience with our realtor Bram... Goldman and Design & Client Care Manager Samantha Davies was excellent. Bram and Samantha are best in industry and I can’t say enough great things about their incredibly professional, knowledgeable and hard working approach. Their skill and relationship building is what helped us through the preparation-to-sell process, attract a ton of prospective buyers, and ultimately land a fantastic sale price. I would highly recommend!read more

My husband and I innocently went to check out a house in the beach with no serious intent to buy - but of course, we... feel in love with the home and the neighbourhood instantly. As this was a bit of an impulsive decision we didn’t even have an agent. Bram was assigned to us and he not only helped close the deal on the new home in 3 days, he managed to sell our current home off market 2 days later. It was a total whirlwind of events in such a short period of time but it was Bram’s clear articulate planning and communication that set him apart and kept us reassured and at ease along the way. He walked us through all the details and whenever we faced any challenges or bumps, Bram always had a plan B or C to present as options and was able to put us in contact with just about every resource professional we needed from start to finish. The full suite of service that Bram and his team provided made EVERYTHING so easy and it took the guesswork out of our total home buying and moving experience. Bram hooked up a mortgage specialist to be right there from the beginning helping us understand the best deals and rates, an excellent lawyer to help us close, design consultation, moving company recommendations, moving boxes… they really helped us minimize the stress and the amount of time I would have had to spend researching and scrambling to find information and resources. Bram also added his personal touches to make us feel like very valued clients - I felt in very capable hands and would refer and recommend him highly.read more

Only Bram could’ve pulled off the move we had in mind. But whilst taking care of the bigger picture he also negotiated... the details in our favour and firmly held our hand between the crucial period of transaction and closing. He is truly passionate about the process, it’s what makes him the best realtor I’ve worked with and one you will be lucky enough to have fighting your battle. Get him in your corner, you’ll be glad for it.read more

Where shall I start 🤔? Bram and his Team were exceptional in every way . The level of professionalism, efficiency,... planning , coordination and passion for details far surpass anything my partner and I have experienced.From the moment of first contact , Bram was efficient in contacting us and his articulation, tone and delivery made us feel so super comfortable, that we would be in good hands . Can I say my previous experience in real estate was very stressful but Bram was like a soothing spa on a very hectic day. We left everything in his hands and we went about our daily lives with not a care in this world. Thats what I call an exceptional experience. Someone like Bram , friendly , passionate about his art ,professional and honest . We appreciate every interaction and gain a level of great respect for him and his company.I cannot end this review without speaking about his Team . Samantha, my gosh, she is a genius!!! She transformed our place and mind to a heighten level with her designs and her efficiency and passion for details . A delightful experience 👏.Zoe is such a quiet storm, she wraps up the experience with her expertise, ensuring we are aware of everything as it happens to media and after sales. Efficiency and a very warm professional individual.Overall , this experience has really change my concept of what a great customer service experience is . This is excellence at its finest.Bravo 👏👏👏👏👏read more

I cannot say enough amazing things about the entire team at The Richards Group. My partner and I were so impressed with... Mark and Shane on our initial meeting with them, we cancelled the other realtor meetings we had scheduled and have zero regrets. We did a fairly large update to our house to get it ready for the market which was all facilitated by the amazing Christine. She held our hands through the entire renovation process and ensured it went as smooth as possible. Her design ideas were incredible and added so much value to our house. Through out the entire process, we felt like we were their only clients even though that was far from reality. We were extremely happy with the entire process and the final sale price Shane negotiated for us. We would highly recommend Shane, Mark, Christine and the entire team at The Richards Group and they will absolutely be our go to realtor team moving forward.read more

His dedication to finding suitable listings, answering questions, sending inquiries, and meeting us at all hours of the day to visit properties made us feel we were in the best possible hands.With such a competitive and challenging housing market in Toronto, Shane's ability to balance the logistical activities while offering empathy and guidance throughout is exceptional. He made everything about the experience easy to understand and relaxed, yet efficient.We entrusted Shane and The Richards Group to help manage every aspect of finding and purchasing our first home and they surely delivered. We now have a home we love in our dream neighbourhood. I cannot recommend Shane and The Richards Group enough!read more
