Rick is one of the best agents we worked with over the last 30 years. Rick quickly identified properties that met our needs and provided great information about the area and all the other perspectives. Rick is very honest and very ethical and went above and beyond to help our sale process.. We  highly recommend Rick!

Richard was excellent to work with from start to finish. He ensured we listed at an appropriate price and a price that we were comfortable with. He did a variety of marketing, qualified buyers, was always available and in the end we sold our property within weeks. Thanks Richard!

My husband and I have worked with Rick in the past to purchase our current home and he is fantastic! We are currently working with Rick to sell another property and his skills are top notch! He is very knowledgable in the field and has a lot of expertise and resources when it comes to home selling  and buying. A definite win for you if you choose to work with Rick.

Rick was absolutely fantastic from the very beginning of looking at homes right through to the closing. I would highly recommend Rick as your agent. Rick is very familiar with the area and definitely listens to what your needs and wants are. I appreciate everything he did for us professionally and  personally.

Rick was an excellent realtor. He was able to assuage our feelings of uncertainty as we were making this purchase remotely. His knowledge of the St. Petersburg area was great - which came in handy when we needed various services. His prompt return of emails or phone calls was so appreciated, but  most of all his skill at negotiating was remarkable making a great deal even better.

I believe Rick Markussen is one of the premier real estate specialists in the Tampa Bay area. He has an extensive knowledge of the market and the types of properties his clients would be most interested in. Once properties are identified, Rick separates himself from most agents when he is onsite  helping his clients evaluate properties. He is extremely knowledgeable of construction and potential issues such as flood zones, construction needs/repairs, etc. He also recognizes quality upgrades and enhancements that many of us may look past or simply miss. He is extremely versed in every aspect of the process and every detail needed to ensure a smooth closing. I have never felt more confident about buying a home than I did throughout my experience with Rick. Clearly, I would highly recommend him to anyone in the market to sell or purchase. He is a professional, a patient gentleman, and "best in class" within the industry.


I purchased a home in St Petersburg from Montana - sight unseen. Rick went overboard in checking out the home for me since I could not be there. There were a couple of items on the inspection report that needed addressing and Rick made sure they were taken care of before the closing. When I did  finally arrive to see the house, Rick had left an card, some flowers, and a bottle of his favorite wine! Even after we closed, Rick lent us his personal tools so we could do some minor improvements on the house. I would recommend Rick to anyone who wants a very dedicated, hard working, all around great guy!

This is not the first time I have done business with Rick. He is consciousness, courteous and just very through. He goes above and beyond his responsibilities to make sure we had everything we needed to make the transaction easy. I would highly recommend Rick to anyone thinking about selling or buying. We have used him for both. You can’t go wrong when you use some one with this kind of integrity.
