Matthew Hoyt

Rick did an amazing job helping us with the sale of our home. From the moment he was great to work with. He assessed our needs of trying to move quickly and was able to come up with a plan to optimize our chances of selling quickly with as few interruptions in our daily life as possible. He paid attention to little details like professional photos and staging that I believe made our house stand out. He coordinated all visits, inspections, and paperwork leading up to the close in a seamless way. And, on top of all the fantastic realtor work he’s a genuine and caring person. We really felt like he had our family’s interest at heart.

Paul Mahoney

We were so fortunate to have Rick as our broker. He enthusiastically and expertly guided us through the twists and turns of our process to find and buy a place in the Upper Valley. Rick gave us timely, thoughtful advice, helping to define our priorities in our search, with keen analysis that informed our successful offer. Once the agreement was signed, he kept us on task and on schedule in getting to a prompt closing (include a referral to an excellent real estate attorney). We are thrilled with the end result!

We have worked with Rick for many decades in both NH and VT. His professionalism is unmatched. Throughout the process, Rick is very communicative, creative and very helpful in making sure the purchase or sale goes smoothly. His market knowledge is extensive, and his understanding of local conditions ensure the transactions are priced competitively to ensure quick sale or purchase. We highly recommend Rick's service in your buying or selling needs throughout NH and VT.

Tycke and Barbara Weed

We have had experience with two different realtors and Rick Higgerson is many notches above the other. No comparison. Upon request, he recommended what he felt was a credible price tag. He moved quickly at the outset to position our place on the market. His portrayal of the property was very enticing and artistically appealing. He kept us apprised of what he was doing and what interest had surfaced regarding the property. When a buyer stepped forward, Rick handled everything swiftly, professionally and in a manner that exuded trust. We don't know Rick outside of this interaction, but we really would like to. He is a wonderful person and an excellent realtor. We feel very fortunate to have had him represent our property.

Elaine Woodside

To sell the 1795 Ross Coon Tavern, we needed the help of a good realtor. Enter Sotheby’s and in particular, John Chapin.  John had a genuine and undisguised admiration for the special qualities of our restored home. Amongst the prospective buyers whom John brought to see our house are the now-owners of The Ross Coon Tavern who made an offer after only one showing with John.  During this difficult time, we feel fortunate to have had John as our pilot. We have no hesitation in recommending John Chapin to anyone wishing to sell a unique property such as The Ross Coon Tavern.

Bayle Drubel

I highly recommend Rick as a real estate agent. He sold two properties for us this past year and we were very pleased with his service in both instances. He is highly professional and he was very responsive to our needs. He relied not only potential buyers that lived locally but he worked on the national level as well to market our property. After working with Rick I understand why he is a top producer in his company.

U. Kauffman

We were demanding and high maintenance and not very organized. Rick was on top of every text, email, vendor request, appointment change, last minute schedule request or change, due date, contract revision, and everything else that goes with being a superb real estate agent. Couldn’t ask for anyone more thorough or more professional. And just a pleasure to work with on a daily basis.

Francis J. Manasek and Anne C. Pearson

This is an enthusiastic Thank You for all your help in selling our lot at 8 Chase Rd in Hanover. Your suggested asking price was spot-on and your assistance with dealing with an out-of-country buyer was invaluable. The complexity of dealing with banks, POAs, lawyer confusion as well as the buyers being in Spain needed your experience. Thank you again.

David Leatherwood

Rick handled all aspects of our recent purchase in Norwich professionally and with integrity. He negotiated a fair resolution to a few complex issues allowing the deal to move forward. This is our second time working with Rick and we highly recommend him.
