Rick was more than a realtor. He became a friend who cared that the home we purchased was a perfect match for our family. His knowledge and honest approach was appreciated and gave us the security that every buyer needs in making a long term investment. Rick Libro matched the excellence of a professional with his warmth and honesty, resulting in a successful purchase in a desireable location.

“Rick waited so patiently for us to figure out what we wanted to do. The move from up north was a big decision to make and he was so great about it…always there to help and answer questions. Rick made buying our new home in Florida easy at a time in our lives when things were very difficult. I couldn’t thank him enough when he called us about the property we eventually did buy because he knew exactly what we wanted.”--Kim and Mike Stanford

Rick knows the Market!
”We have now bought two properties in Florida. Rick acted as our realtor in both purchases and not only showed true professionalism, but seemed to know what we wanted better than we did! He supported our interests as foreign buyers at every stage and made what could have been a stressful experience, simple and straightforward. Rick is a great person and someone we have come to value highly both as a realtor and friend.”--Mike and Jane Dale

The perfect Home!
We started with your great web site 1500 miles away and continued until you found the perfect home for us.
Thank you for everything!

We are so happy!
Thank you for the contribution to the Childrens Miracle Network on our behalf. I appreciate the help and perserverance in helping find and purchase my new home. We are finally finishing our unpacking and looking forward to our first concert on Main Street in Lakewood Ranch. We have been enjoying the wildlife on out morning walks. I know we will all be very happy here.
With plans to move back to Florida, specifically, Lakewood Ranch, I found Rick when I googled Lakewood Ranch Realtors. His name was the first that popped up and so I contacted him via email. He was responsive and prompt with answers to any questions that I had even with a 3 hour time difference! The moment I arrived back in my home state, I was able to have a meeting with him and get a house underway. Being a single female, I trusted his opinion throughout the building process of the home and frankly, I couldn't be happier! I know that if I ever need a Relator in the future, I most definitely will be using him.

Rick is one of those rare people that you sometimes find who places his clients' needs first and foremost at all times. His knowledge of the real estate market is unquestionable. While I know I am not his only customer, he treats me as if I am. Seldom is he not available to take my phone calls. Messages and emails are returned in a matter of minutes. His guidance and counsel have prevented me from making mistakes and exercising poor judgment. He is patient, understanding, extremely trustworthy and very open. He is truly the professional's professional.

Thorough and precise
Rick was the most knowledgeable and reliable broker we have ever worked with. He spent several days with us not only to look at homes but to show us around the Sarasota area. We are building a home in Lakewood ranch and Rick also assisted us in getting a rental. We truly appreciate all he has done for us.

The complete package in a Realtor!
We moved to Lakewood Ranch from the UK so required an agent with good local knowledge on property, amenities, schools, recreation etc and Rick was well informed in all areas. Rick went above and beyond in not only finding us a fantastic lot to build a new home , but also a rental property to stay in whilst the new home was built and he even went to visit the rental as we were unable to travel back out to the US at that time and could only look at online pictures. He helped with the whole purchase process and beyond, providing recommendations for services that we would need after the purchase. I would happily and confidentially recommend Rick Libro to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Marc and Shana, Lakewood Ranch
I have used Rick in 3 real estate transactions in the Bradenton Florida area. Needless to say these last many years have posed a challenge in these markets. Rick has always been a consistantly high performer. He absolutely goes above and beyond what other real estate agents do. Having bought and sold probably 20 properties, Rick is the best I've dealt with.
I can't recommend Rick highly enough. He's the best. You won't find better. Thanks Rick for all you've done for me over the years. If I buy or sell again, I'll be in touch.
Mike and Charlene, Newark
Looking out for us!
Rick was absolutely great. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional during the entire process of buying our house. He did a great job of zeroing in on what we were looking for and was able to steer us away from homes that had problems we didn't pick up on. He made the complicated task of looking for, and buying our home look easy. I would recommend Rick Libro to anyone looking to buy a house in the Sarasota area; in fact, I already have. By the way, our mortgage person in PA (where we were moving from) told me it was great to work with someone who knew what he/she was doing.

Patient,Caring and Professional.
We met Rick Libro 3 years ago, we explained our situation and since then, finally our opportunity came for us to qualify to buy a home. After looking at 9 homes he found us the one we fell in love with and purchased. His eagerness, enthusiasm and professionalism is outstanding. Rick explained step by step each process, his suggestions were welcome given his experience. Each inspection needed he was present from beginning to end (this is much appreciated).
What we found to be most impressive was his communication skills in all formats, E-mail, Text, Calls. Every time we had a concern or just a quick question he would get back to us immediately, no matter if it was early in the morning, late at night and on weekends too, wowâ€¦ we were very impress and grateful for this.
We will share with our family, friends and coworkers his contact info and tell them how wonderful he treated us and how much we can trust him above all.

Knowledgeable and Great Communication!
"Rick is the absolute best! He is very knowledgeable and found exactly what we were looking for. Great communication from start to finish. We love our new home. Thanks!"
Bret and Stefanie, Palmetto
"We were so impressed with Rick from the very beginning. When we were still in Colorado, Rick spent time to try to help us find a place(not even knowing if we would actually move to Florida). His commitment to finding us what we wanted was wonderful (a horse property in the Nokomis area). He also has a lot of patience and perseverance. His communication is probably his biggest strength. He is very consistent and always kept us in the loop with every detail, which we really appreciated. By nature, this process can be stressful, but because of Rick's knowledge, professionalism and communication, it went as smooth as it could go. Thank you, Rick! We will continue to recommend your stellar service to others!"
