As a career business man, Richard brings a wealth of experience with him wherever he goes. A graduate of the Boston University School of Business, Richard began his career selling television advertising in New York and Chicago before getting into what was then the family business; Brooklyn Bow and Ribbon Co. In Lynbrook, NY. Richard ran the business successfully for 23 years before selling and moving on to other projects. Today, Richard is proud and pleased to be selling real estate with his son and daughter-in-law as part of The Hartman Team.
“I trust Richard Hartman implicitly and will use him for all of my real estate needs!"
Richard was referred by a business associate. He had the property under contract within two weeks. Would use his services again and would recommend him to family and friends.
I owned a home in NPB for many years and when it came time to sell, I decided to try selling it myself. It proved to be challenging and time consuming and I wasn't getting the results I was hoping for. During this time Richard Hartman spoke to me about the benefits of listing it with a Realtor. Instead of looking at it as an expense he showed me a way to look at him as an investment and that I would likely see an increase in net proceeds to me, without having to have the stress and to do the work. After interviewing several agents I gave Richard and his team a shot. They worked very hard on my behalf and did a great job getting qualified buyers through my home. Unfortunately I was not able to give them enough time to find me a buyer and for reasons beyond my control, we went with another agent. While the other agent was well known around the area, I was disappointed in the level or service provided by him and felt that Richard and his team were really the best for the job. The new agent put my home on lockbox and people would come over at all times, sometimes without notice. I loved the fact that with Richard and his team, they were there for every showing. Feedback was instantaneous and we did not to wait a week for buyer’s agent to get back to my agent then get back to us! The home eventually sold and for a number that Richard and his team had spoken about in the beginning of our listing with him. He made every effort to get me more than what I may have received otherwise and I commend him for that. Next time I buy or sell a home, I will definitely use Richard Hartman and The Hartman Team.
Rick was excellent from the initial marketing of the property at a high, but realistic, price so it would sell quickly, through closing. As an example, he arranged whatever repairs were needed to be done, came to and stayed at the house while the repairs were done and made sure everything was handled in a professional and expeditious manner with minimal effort on my part. This was very important to me since it was investment property so I was not there on a regular basis. He earned his commission. I highly recommend him.
Ben, Rick and Joanna did a wonderful job. The listing was on the market in record time and sold very quickly. I would recommend Ben, Rick and Joanna for any future real estate listing.
"I met Richard Hartman at an open house long before I needed a realtor. We were just curious about the area if we ever decided to move. I kept his card just in case, and I'm glad I did.
After my father died, Richard was able to sell his large, outdated, two-bedroom house in a very reasonable time frame and at a price higher than expected. A few months later, it was our turn to move. Richard helped us close on a home in one of the neighborhoods we had targeted, and was able to sell our home very quickly.
I would guess buying or selling homes is not really a joyful experience for most people. It's business you take very personally, particularly when moving your primary residence, and it's a serious financial decision that will have a huge impact on your family. As a result, the process can be very stressful. Richard was able to navigate us through the emotional turmoil with professionalism and get us to the finish line on all three transactions. He's the guy you want on your team when it's time to buy or sell."
“He was great! This was a long distance sale and he made it so very easy. He made what could have been a stressful process easy!! Thank you Richard!!”
