“Working with Ray to sell our previous home and purchase our new home was a fabulous experience. He is thorough, kind, and patient. He offered assistance through business partners that assisted with staging and inspections. He found us our dream home with all the space our family needed. He also helped to make our closing painless. I have wholeheartedly recommended him to family and friends.”

-Harvey Dickens-

“Ray was a great agent for us, he was quick to make time to show me the house, then when my husband wanted to see it a week later he set it up again. He got us all the paperwork fast and easy and made the home buying process stress free. He knew just who and what we should have inspected and set up all the appointments. Great agent to work with!”

-Dawn M.-

“Ray was amazing at walking with our family through every step of a military relocation. He was upfront and honest through every process and really got to know our family. He listened, was knowledgeable, and was quick to inform, respond, and tackle anything and everything along the way. He was patient with us selling our house in MI and made himself available at the drop of a hat when we made an impromptu trip to VA to look at houses over a holiday weekend. I highly recommend Ray. He didn't end his job at closing. He is still there for us and responds immediately even weeks after our closing and we are moved in and settled. Ray you are a great guy! Thank you for everything!”

-Kate McClure-

“Ray and I have worked together many years and he is a personal friend as well as a highly experienced sales professional. He conducts himself ethically and uses the utmost attention to details. He is extremely interested in client satisfaction and the best possible outcome. I'm positive he will do his absolute best for you and your Real Estate Needs!”

-Helen Voorhees-

“I have known Ray for nearly 30 years. He has provided first rate real estate advice to me, particularly in regard to my duties as trustee of my father's complex estate. Ray's advice and counsel was pivotal in the efficient disposition of the real property in the estate for top dollar. I was very lucky to know and trust Ray before I needed his help. If you want an honest and knowledgeable straight shooter with a no BS approach, Ray is your man.”
