I appreciate the opportunities afforded by each and every one of my clients, and strive to provide exceptional value with the highest standards of integrity and service. When you put me to work you can count on open communication and a smooth real estate experience.

I look forward to showing you how I help my buyers, sellers and investors achieve their real estate goals throughout the entire Coachella Valley.

Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Richard is an awesome realtor, professional and hard working"

  - Angela Maciel Gibbons, Client

"A great real estate agent that works hard for you!"

  -Chris Mcknight, Client

"Richard did an amazing job helping our family find the perfect house! His knowledge of the area was extremely beneficial since we were new to the Coachella Valley. He helped us find the perfect area and house!"

  -Sarah Lippy, Client

"Without question, Richard is the best real estate agent we have ever known. He is remarkable."

  -Ken and Stephanie Lasbury, Client

"Richard: You are the best residential broker I have worked with in my 25 years in the real estate business. Working with you was definitely a pleasure, because you are as resourceful as you a re accommodating. Your accessibility and professional follow-thru is superb and unmatched. From the outset, my wife and I were impressed with your 24/7 accessibility, wealth of contacts, unlimited patience, and quick turn around time. It doesn’t matter what time of day it was, what information we needed, you were always there in person or via email/telephone to answer our myriads of questions and provide us with various vendors for our choosing. You were always respectful and responsive, and took every customer call yourself instead of having your assistant weed out the calls as most brokers would do. Your continuous communication with us and regular contacts with the various parties involved ensured our purchasing a second home was an enjoyable and memorable experience."

  -Gary Cook, Client

"In a world where it is easier to complain or dwell on the negatives of life, I’d like to complement you and your agency for the excellent service I have received from your agent, Richard Chamb erlin. Richard displays this excellence in service in three distinct ways; professionalism, affability and tenacity. Professionally, Richard seems to have an uncanny ability to listen and to understand my real estate requirement and the market, and to proactively find properties that meet my needs. He does not barrage the buyer with hundreds of properties but hones in a small quantity of good properties and usually finds a bargain. Richard’s affability is personified by his positive attitude, his good relations with all the players in the real estate community and his sense of humor. Finally, Richard’s tenacity is exemplified by his organized and kind but tenacious efforts to make the deal happen. He doesn’t give up easily and works consistently and logically to get a positive result."

  -Timothy Korb-Shay, Client

""Richard Chamberlin is the consummate real estate professional. We specified what our dream house would look like, and he found it for us; helped to negotiate the best deal; and then worked wit h us to deal with the many ancillary requirements and decisions leading right up to possession. Richard doesn't try to sell you a house; he patiently allows you to carefully review each choice, and make your decision. He answers your questions and concerns in a timely manner, and possesses great interpersonal skills. Thank you, Richard. Canadian snowbirds; Ray and Pat." "

  -Ray Bauschke, Client

"Richard, I'm writing to express my appreciation for your patience and commitment in working with me these past three summer months. The effort you made to understand my 'changing needs' in th e dynamic Coachella Valley market was exemplary. Your 'stick with it spirit' resulted in my eventual purchase of a beautiful 2,700 square foot home at the Bridge at Jefferson. It's funny, but I never thought, once I had lost this house to another buyer, that it would ever come back on the market. I still don't know what prompted you to call Allan at the Bridge sales office, but I am certainly glad you did. I love living here. Please do not hesitate to share this letter with potential clients. On a more personal note, if there is someone you would like me to speak with, I am happy to accommodate this on a limited basis."

  -Kris Lennon, Client

"Richard did a superb job for us on selling our home. He was very professional in all his dealings with us and any clients he met. Our home was always left clean after his many open houses. His marketing skills were very good and the communications he had had with us were very timely. He would be an asset for anyone wanting to sell their home or buying. Thank You Again!"

  -John R. LeFave, Client

"Richard went over and above what is "normally" asked of a realtor. I would highly recommend him and would use him again. "

  -Lynn, Client

"Richard Chamberlin is the best in the West. Pardon the pun. He was eager to please and listen to our wishes and concerns from the start. We were here from St Louis on a house trip and only ha d a general idea what we were looking for. He introduced us to the area's neighborhood Richards's knowledge , help and professionalism helped us select our perfect house. Richard doesn't stop there, he is still helping with post sale questions. "

  -Julianna Cluse, Client

"Richard Chamberlin is a wonderful agent! Richard came highly recommended through our agent in Northern California and she did not steer us wrong. We were first time sellers and naive to the pro cess involved in selling a custom mini estate in a resort area. Richard was always patient, calm, and professional spending hours educating himself about the estate and extensive remodel done to it several years ago. Countless hours were spent by Richard giving both private showings day and night and open houses every weekend. He flawlessly executed the sale of our beloved home to the perfect buyers...handling details and appointments to create a close with minimal disruption for everyone. Considering we live 500+ miles away this was above and beyond our expectations in a real estate broker! Richard is a wonderful agent and human being, we can't recommend him highly enough. "
