Client Testimonials

I have nothing but praise for Rick, as he really did go over and above what would normally be expected from a real estate agent.

I had the unfortunate task of selling my childhood home after my mom passed away, and had to do so from a distance as I reside in Texas and couldn’t spend weeks or months in Canada closing on the sale. Rick met with me on very short notice, walked me through all of the steps to get the house on the market, and was very helpful in guiding me on many worrisome tasks as we quickly prepared the home for sale.  He helped with contents removal, ensured the driveway was cleared of snow, and checked in on the vacant property to avoid costly increases in house insurance.  Rick’s knowledge of the market was invaluable in setting a list price that generated multiple offers.  He was in regular contact by email or phone, detailing every offer and giving me lots of advice in making the decision on which offer to accept. All the way up to closing and even after the fact, Rick shepherded us through all of the necessary steps to complete the sale, keeping me and the new owners happy. Rick is trustworthy, honest, and professional.  If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t hesitate for an instant in choosing Rick as our agent. I am so grateful to have had such a dependable, caring person that I could trust to take care of the sale of my home.

Rick has always been there for us with more support than we would ever expect.

In the past 40 years we have purchased, sold and leased many industrial, retail and residential properties across Canada often in the million dollar plus range, working with top realtors. We can say without fear of exaggeration that Rick Crouch has worked harder on our behalf than any other agent, to locate the right property or to sell for us, negotiating the best terms and price. We have recommended Rick to others because he gets the job done and brings the results that they were looking for. We will continue not only to use Rick, but will also recommend him to others.”
John and Joanne Lennox

You are a first class agent!

Rick, you were extremely there to assist me in finding the right home and went overboard to get the deal completed. It was a little complicated as you know, but thanks for your diligence in getting it all together.
Joan Roth

Thank you for all your great effort and accommodation to complete the sale of our condominium at Lighthouse Point.

We are very pleased to have the deal completed so that we may now focus on our new property. All the best for a great 2007 and if we have any opportunity to refer you to potential clients we will gladly do so.”

You have been so easy to deal with, your advice has been consistent, and we never doubted who you were working for. We are very pleased with the results. If you ever need a reference, please do not hesitate to call us.
Barbara Legate & David Wolfe

We feel very fortunate that we chose Rick Crouch to help us find and purchase a house in the Collingwood/Blue Mountain area.

We are from Toronto and Rick took the time to familiarize us with what the area and all that it has to offer, as well as, to educate us about the local real estate market. Due to our very specific requirements, our search for a house took some time. Rick with his easy going nature was extremely patient and tirelessly showed us various neighbourhoods. His experience and knowledge of the market were invaluable in guiding us to the right home at the right price and in the end negotiating the deal.
William and Joanne Purchase

Rick really helped us understand the market

And show us a broad spectrum of properties in the Blue Mountain area, especially considering we had done extensive research before calling him. He recommended excellent inspectors and when it came time to make an offer, Rick’s experience and professionalism helped make the deal happen and his advice on the offering strategy was perfect. Post sale, Rick has been extremely helpful and has gone over and above to ensure important things were addressed in a timely and efficient fashion. Rick, thanks for great service and advice; it was a real pleasure having you work on our behalf.
L. Pollard

Thank you so much for all of your efforts!

You’ve truly amazed me in how attentive and professional you’ve been throughout this whole process, even going as far as getting the Spa sorted out.
Tony Colangelo

We first met Rick when we had him evaluate our property with a view to selling.

He was very thorough and did a lot of up-front work to show us how our property compared to others in the area, and what value added features we had that we may not have considered. We felt confident that his recommendations regarding updating, staging and pricing were accurate and relevant.
Kerry and Silvia Mac Con

I would be happy to work with Rick again in the future if the opportunity presents itself.

As an out of town purchaser I had to rely heavily on Rick’s judgment and help when choosing an investment property.I purchased a commercial property in Collingwood through Rick and was very pleased with Rick’s professionalism and willingness to go the extra distance both before and after the sale. Helping us out with a few small problems even after the sale had closed was greatly appreciated. Rick seems genuinely interested in making a real estate purchase a pleasant experience and makes it a point to know his product exceedingly well.

Although the market was hot when we sold, Rick was able to make things easy and quick!

He met with us at our convenience and did not push a sale or a price. Thank you”
Dennis & Lillian Biesiada

As an out of town purchaser I had to rely heavily on Rick's judgment and help when choosing an investment property.

Rick was more than willing to give us the time and patience to educate us about the market and relative values.To maximize the use of my limited time Rick screened and lined up appointments carefully to ensure those selected met all my criteria. Then when it was time to sell I was thrilled with all the “extras” that were part of Rick’s normal client service. He was unbelievably helpful and definitely played a huge role in the successful execution of the sale.

Rick was more than willing to give us the time and patience to educate us about the market and relative values.

We had been looking for the right property for some time in the Collingwood area. He spent many hours with our family touring properties and providing insights. We made a purchase offer when WE were ready and comfortable that we were making a wise investment decision.

We feel very fortunate that we chose Rick Crouch to help us find and purchase a house in the Collingwood/Blue Mountain area. We feel very fortunate that we chose Rick Crouch to help us find and purchase a house in the Collingwood/Blue Mountain area. We were referred to Rick and consider that a fortunate event. Working with us as our “Buyer Agent” Rick initially spent time with us to understand our needs and objectives. In addition, as we became more educated on the local market, with his guidance, our needs evolved and he was always responsive in this regard. Rick spent many months providing us with regular emails and discussion of listings for us to consider. Equally important, he invested both the time and patience in helping to educate us about the market and property values in the area. We spent many months viewing appropriate properties during which time he provided insights that allowed us to make an unpressured purchase decision for a property that best suited our family’s needs and reflected sound value as a real estate investment.
Chris Tambakis & Rebecca Leigh

Rick always gave us the impression that every request we asked him was never too much.

Rick Crouch of Royal LePage Locations North came into our life approximately a year ago to assist us with the sale of our beautiful home. Rick took a very difficult sale and made it into a pleasure to finally see resolution. Rick showed us many homes in the interim and had an excellent guiding hand with showing us properties for sale that would be beneficial to our family at present and also in the future. Rick always had a friendly smile, good humour, and a long list of knowledge. He was very professional with every conversation or visit and he had a special way to making a difficult situation into a positive.
