    Kyle gave Richard 5 stars out of 5
    Worked with Rich through one of the most competitive markets in recent history. Still he understood that as first time buyers - we were nervous and never pressured us to buy or commit to anything we didn't really want. He always managed to get us to properties same or next day we found them. In the modern age of Realtor.com / Zillow I think most people can find properties they might like on their own, but as a first time buyer - knowledge of the neighborhoods - what to look for in the foundations/walls/yards - and access to see them in person quickly were all HUGELY valuable. Beyond that he even helped us with a great home inspector and through the closing process while appraisers were booked up. Rich was also just very nice guy. Very positive, generally ready with a laugh - which was always welcome in a VERY FRUSTRATING market where homes were often sold same day - and nothing good lasted over a weekend. I cannot speak to his negotiating, just because none of the houses we liked went under asking price - but I can say that he was always straight forward and relatively on the nose for the value the houses would eventually go for - (when the selling realtors were kind enough to let us know how much we lost by). All in all - Rich is a great guy and I think a great realtor. He'll put in the leg work for you and not push you into a home just to make a buck.

    For several years Richard has been there to provide market analysis of my home so that I could decide when the time was right to put it on the market and move up in home. The numbers and record low rates convinced me to finally make the move. Richard got my house sold for a reasonable price. But where he shined the most was assisting me finding the right new home. Every home we viewed he noticed several flaws or faults that I might have overlooked such as roof condition, window seal leaks, etc. I finally found the right home which was a foreclosure that had a 10 day bidding period. With Richard's expertise of the market, we submitted the winning bid that also came in well below the home's appraised value which is almost unheard-of in today's hot market. There were some unique challenges that came up closing on a foreclosed property, but every step of the way Richard was extremely responsive throughout and did everything he could to keep things moving as smoothly as possible. I found a real gem and am grateful for all of the service Richard provided throughout.

    Richard provided us with a lot of helpful advice on how to get the best price out of our home, from what to fix up, to research on how houses were selling in our area. He followed up personally throughout the process and was great to work with.

    Rich is a terrific real estate agent. He went above and beyond in every aspect. How many realtors are going to show up on your moving day and sweep out your garage and move a bunch of your stuff? He's the only on I have ever met! He never tried to gloss anything over, and he told me truth on every turn, even if it cost him money.

    Richard McClellan is truly dedicated to helping buyers find the perfect home, and I will highly recommend him to anyone moving to the Omaha area. He schedules showings as soon as possible, makes himself readily available, and pays attention to every detail about home preferences. He explains every aspect of the home buying process and goes above and beyond to make each step as seamless as possible. As first-time home buyers, Rich was perfect for us because he could identify potential issues with each house and educate us. We really trusted and valued his opinion. He put in 100% effort to find the right home for us. Next time we move, we will be calling Rich!

    I have known Richard for a long time and respect his real estate knowledge. So when it came time for my wife and I to move from our previous home and find our forever home, he was the first call we made. Richard is not licensed in our area, but he gave us some important tips and ideas on how to get top dollar in today's market. He was also able to use his agent network to find us the perfect agent in our area. His suggestions paid off and we were able to buy and sell effortlessly. If you need help in the Omaha area he is definitely your guy and if you are looking to buy or sell anywhere else he is the agent to contact for that as well.

    James gave Richard 5 stars out of 5
    I was very happy with the service and willingness to comply to my schedule. Rich was great with all of my family questions and trying to gauge what my family will need in a house. He also allowed me to see any property even if he didn't think it would fit our family or standards. I was impressed by the way he stuck with me even though my loan amount was low and there wasn't a lot of choices. He never tried to hard sale a house to me. If I said the house wouldn't work Rich would move right on to the next house, no problem. He was also very personable with my family and worked hard to make this experience a lighthearted experience instead of stressful. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to buy a house for the first time.

    My husband and I are first time buyers in Omaha while also buying out of state, so we leaned on Richard extensively for his network of real estate professionals, as well as his honest assessment of properties. Richard was extremely flexible to work with; he uploaded detailed videos and photos on everything we asked about. Then he patiently walked us through the purchase process. We hope to work with Richard again in the future!

    Working with Rich was an absolute blessing. Processes like these are vary stressful and Rich was 100% able to guide me confidently trough the entire process. He displayed a massive amount of charisma and I always felt comfortable in his guidance throughout the process. Rich is highly intelligent and is a realtor that gives you the greatest ability to pursue the home that you want. Rich will move at the pace you feel comfortable with whether that is painstakingly trying to find a house for you at any time/day of the week, or slowly moving you through the process. Without a doubt I am extremely grateful to have been guided by him and I would recommend him 10/10 to anybody looking for a realtor.

    Andrew gave Richard 4 stars out of 5
    Richard is a very dedicated agent. Right from the start he helped my wife and I understand where the housing market was heading at the time of our listing. He gave us some great tips on how to dress up our home for the listing as well as viewings. His advise gave us just what we needed to set a fair price for our home that would make sure it moved quickly while still maximizing our gains on the sale. As a result, we sold our home on the first day above our list price. He alleviated the stress of selling our home, by being a calming voice when we were negotiating the additional, post inspection, details. He was the perfect person to balance my stubbornness and the nervousness of my pregnant wife. As both the buyers and I dug in our heals on some details he helped us negotiate the fairest compromise to get the deal finalized. I wouldn't want to use anyone else if I were buying or selling a home. He checked in frequently enough to make sure we knew what our next steps were without adding stress to the buying, selling, and moving process. Thanks to Richard my wife, daughter (another on the way), and I have made the move to a bigger and more beautiful home.

    Dani gave Richard 5 stars out of 5
    As a first time buyer, I knew next to nothing about buying a home. Richard patiently walked me through the entire process and made himself available for any ridiculous inquiry I could think of. He was always happy to answer and then re-answer my questions, he was accommodating to my crazy work schedule, he was consistently honest and realistic, and he helped me think through aspects of owning a home that I have never had to encounter before. I am not originally from this area, so he was also able to help me identify locations that were most ideal for me. Richard wasn't just trying to sell me a house, his priority was to help me find a home that I absolutely loved. I would recommend Richard to anyone and everyone.

    I would highly recommend Richard to anyone looking to buy. Hes not high pressure like realtors I have dealt with in the past. He has an excellent book of people he was able to call when we both were stumped on a question. His expertise helped me get thru the easiest closing process I have had when buying a home. He had great recommendations on an inspector I felt I could trust, and a title company that made things easy.

    Richard was amazing during our home-buying process as first-timers. He was just as excited to work with us from the moment we first spoke to when we closed on the house. He answered any questions that we had honestly and clearly--and if he didn't know something, he would either find out himself or point out resources we could use to find the information that he could vouch for. He was available by phone or in person practically whenever we needed him--all without complaint. He also worked with us to find a house that suited our needs, without the workload falling entirely on either side. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone else looking to buy a home.

    When I began my home buying experience I thought it was going to be the hardest thing in the world. Until I chose Rich as my agent. He put me in touch with an amazing lender. And just when I thought it was going to take for ever to find a house. The process was over. Rich made it so fast and easy I almost didnt believe I was walking into my own first home. If I ever decide to sell and buy a new home there is no one else I would want to go to for help.

    We are first time home sellers, and Rich answered our questions through every step of the process. He came and looked at the house to recommend updates, helped advise us of contractors. Additionally, he brought other recent comparable sales, that helped advise us of current market value. He came back out and reviewed our updates, and went over selling paperwork a few days before we went on the market. Our house sold the first day of showings, and we received exactly what we asked for, and the appraisal came through on point as well. He also helped us connect with an excellent realtor in the market we are moving to and we found exactly what we wanted there in our price range. We could not ask for a better experience.

    Richard was an amazing agent! He went above and beyond to help us find a house. He never stopped looking for us and going out of his way and taking time away from his family to show us houses until we found the right one for us. If you want someone to depend on and trust in looking for your next house you must go with Richard!

    Rich was great. He listened to what I was looking for. What I wanted my home to be. Kept me on track when I got distracted by something that didn't fit what I was looking for. He suggested a mortgage person to me and I loved working with her. Richard was great about responding to all my questions. He gave me answers that helped me make my decisions.

    We were looking for a new home and Richard called. From the start he was professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and great to work with. Answered questions and was informative. He helped us sell our home and was patient with us when looking for a new home. We looked at a lot of homes in many different areas, he never rushed us. He has a good positive outlook on helping us find our current house which we are extremely happy with that is what we were looking for. I will definitely work with him again.
