Rick clearly understood our property and was clearly effective with the buyer. I would definitely recommend him to any one buying or selling in the future..

If you have Rick as your agent, you lucked out. It's a tough market, I am not an "all cash" buyer but was willing to take some bit of risk. Rick knew how much risk was needed to stay competitive. This gave a huge advantage to us. Rick anticipated many of our questions, and was quick to reply to the rest. He also kept a very close eye on the changing market. Together we continued to refine our search criteria, sometimes multiple times a day. This allowed us to focus more of our time on just the most relevant properties. He has a "no fat" approach, focuses on the most relevant steps, and does so fast. Super efficient all around, including in communications, and very professional. I've bought before, and seen situations where agents made recommendations based on their own interests even when they conflicted w/ ours. Rick took the opposite approach. Rick consistently took our best interests over his. I described such a situation with my father, a retired real estate attorney (practiced in Northern Virginia). He was surprised, saying Rick's approach was not the norm in his experience. If we ever buy again in this area, we would 100% want Rick to help us.

His knowledge of the local area and attention to details were a definite plus whatever my needs were.

Rick was always available to answer questions without having to wait very long for a reply.

Rick always remained respectful and professional when dealing with this family member which is NOT an easy task.

I have known Rick for a long time. I know him to be a total professional and a dedicated servant of our community. His support of worthy non-profits working on behalf of local citizens in need is especially appreciated. As this sale was our first experience with commercial realty, I had lots of questions over a long listing period. Rick responded to them all as though he wrote the realtor's guide to successful results in a difficult system. He enabled us, by his obvious depth of knowledge, to focus on our personal issues involving the buyer while he lead us to a successful conclusion. He's very good!!

We have worked with Rick many times in the past and he is a pleasure to work with. Understands the needs of a builder. We began purchasing this property and ran into some unforeseen issues with getting a septic permit for the lot prior to purchase. Rick helped make the process much easier by assisting in communication with previous owner and steps that needed to be taken.

I must admit that our family had known Rick Merrill from 2 previous real estate purchases, and knew that he was the expert on Lake Lure lakefront properties. We first contacted him by email and he quickly set up a personal visit at our convenience. He took us to see 2 properties but didn't pressure us in any way to continue. In fact, we sat on it for several months before contacting him again. It's incredible, by the way, how quickly he responds to texts and emails, as though he is always available to meet our needs. His main question when we reconnected was how early did we expect to have this lake house. Despite hoping for this summer, I never believed it possible that quickly. Rick Merrill handled every part of the transaction from the first offer, counteroffer, payments, and contracts with careful attention but apparent ease that comes from experience. His messages were always succinct and on point. His database of vendors, retailers, carpenters, painters, etc will be useful even after closing. In summary, I highly admire and respect Rick Merrill and would strongly recommend him to everyone searching for properties in his region.

My experience with the agent, Rick Merril,l was entirely positive. I think he was especially good at shortstopping difficulties by advising on improvements and repairs that made the property more attractive. He communicated regularly with me and my representatives.

Rick Merrill has the experience to handle not only home sales but is a certified land consultant. Rick Merrill can help you with either home or land purchases. Rick has helped us with all the homes we look at with the land that comes with the home purchase...the slope, the lot lines, the view, the grade of roads to and from the property etc. It is very important to get the big picture when looking on the internet...Rick Merrill can help where others will lack. Rick has been here longer than my family and we have been here 25 years and he helped us purchase our first home back them over a fax machine offer and then a trip to do a walk thru and we bought. Today most realty is viewed on the internet. Rick Merrill is an expert of explaining what your looking at in terms of house, land and value based on market sales and availability...

Bill & Audrey DeRosa Hendersonville NC

As I mentioned before, Rick is a very honest and straight forward person. He tells you the facts. He doesn't try to embellish things or give you false expectations. He was very respectful of my wife's physical limitations. He did a great job when we sold our previous home and I didn't want anyone else to handle this sale. If I had another home to sell, I would call Rick right away.

Colin E Thomas, MD Hendersonville, NC

verified

Rick made the process of buying my first home as easy as possible. I was intimidated and avoided looking for a house for a while, but he walked me through all the stages of purchasing and ensured things went smoothly. When I was set on a property Rick was good about not only showing the positive things about the house but also telling me the things I probably didn't want to hear so I knew what I was getting into. During price negotiations the seller couldn't be reached to grant a financial concession, but Rick went above and beyond and forfeited his buyer's bonus to make the deal happen.

Always communicated whether good feed back or bad. He won't list unless he feels he can make it saleable. A true professional.

Over the last several years, land has not been moving very well. Our property was over 15 acres which, due to the price, was even harder to sell but Rick Merrill worked hard to find us a buyer and we were very pleased with his efforts. We had worked with Rick Merrill previously and knew he would go above and beyond to take care of our needs. As always, he kept us very well informed every step of the way and took time to explain what was going on. We have another piece of land to sell in the near future and we will list with Rick because we know all bases will be covered. He is awesome and a pleasure to work with!! We highly recommend Rick for all your real estate needs!!!

Rick's knowledge of craftsman to do work that had to be done on the house, his assistance in following up on the work and his assistance in developing solutions to issues raised by the prospective purchaser was the key to completing the sale.

Initial contact was very positive and the full day we spent house hunting was quite pleasant. Lots of local knowledge and personal anecdotes along the way. We were tired from looking at homes in another area, but this was a refreshing change. After we returned home to Colorado and decided to make an offer, Rick made the whole process seamless and trouble free. Excellent communication, tons of help with details, and great expediting of wants and needs. We had similar service from our realtor on the other end, so this entire experience went as smoothly as possible. The only way it could have been improved would have been if somebody else had picked up the cost of moving - that's it! A real pleasure to work with Rick and the others that he helped select to get the closing done in a totally painless and efficient manner.

Looking for a new home in the area while living out of state, added an element of difficulty that could have made it a daunting task. Rick made the process stress free with his knowledge of the area, information about services and communities, travel times and routes, mountain terrain experience and communication skills.

We loved that Rick Merrill was no-nonsense and we enjoyed our time with him. Even though we were not his biggest client, you would have never known.

I have known Rick for a long time. I know him to be a total professional and a dedicated servant of our community. His support of worthy non-profits working on behalf of local citizens in need is especially appreciated. As this sale was our first experience with commercial realty, I had lots of questions over a long listing period. Rick responded to them all as though he wrote the realtor's guide to successful results in a difficult system. He enabled us, by his obvious depth of knowledge, to focus on our personal issues involving the buyer while he lead us to a successful conclusion. He's very good!!

I’ve dealt with Rick Merrill on previous real estate transactions. Rick is very knowledgeable, straight forward and knows the real estate business.

We have worked with Rick many times in the past and he is a pleasure to work with. Understands the needs of a builder. We began purchasing this property and ran into some unforeseen issues with getting a septic permit for the lot prior to purchase. Rick helped make the process much easier by assisting in communication with previous owner and steps that needed to be taken.

I must admit that our family had known Rick Merrill from 2 previous real estate purchases, and knew that he was the expert on Lake Lure lakefront properties. We first contacted him by email and he quickly set up a personal visit at our convenience. He took us to see 2 properties but didn't pressure us in any way to continue. In fact, we sat on it for several months before contacting him again. It's incredible, by the way, how quickly he responds to texts and emails, as though he is always available to meet our needs. His main question when we reconnected was how early did we expect to have this lake house. Despite hoping for this summer, I never believed it possible that quickly. Rick Merrill handled every part of the transaction from the first offer, counteroffer, payments, and contracts with careful attention but apparent ease that comes from experience. His messages were always succinct and on point. His database of vendors, retailers, carpenters, painters, etc will be useful even after closing. In summary, I highly admire and respect Rick Merrill and would strongly recommend him to everyone searching for properties in his region.

My experience with the agent, Rick Merril,l was entirely positive. I think he was especially good at shortstopping difficulties by advising on improvements and repairs that made the property more attractive. He communicated regularly with me and my representatives. I likely will not use another agent as long as Rick Merrill is around.

Rick Merrill has the experience to handle not only home sales but is a certified land consultant. Rick Merrill can help you with either home or land purchases. Rick has helped us with all the homes we look at with the land that comes with the home purchase...the slope, the lot lines, the view, the grade of roads to and from the property etc. It is very important to get the big picture when looking on the internet...Rick Merrill can help where others will lack. Rick has been here longer than my family and we have been here 25 years and he helped us purchase our first home back them over a fax machine offer and then a trip to do a walk thru and we bought. Today most realty is viewed on the internet. Rick Merrill is an expert of explaining what your looking at in terms of house, land and value based on market sales and availability...

As I mentioned before, Rick is a very honest and straight forward person. He tells you the facts. He doesn't try to embellish things or give you false expectations. He was very respectful of my wife's physical limitations. He did a great job when we sold our previous home and I didn't want anyone else to handle this sale. If I had another home to sell, I would call Rick right away.

Colin E Thomas, MD Hendersonville, NC

Rick made the process of buying my first home as easy as possible. I was intimidated and avoided looking for a house for a while, but he walked me through all the stages of purchasing and ensured things went smoothly. When I was set on a property Rick was good about not only showing the positive things about the house but also telling me the things I probably didn't want to hear so I knew what I was getting into. During price negotiations the seller couldn't be reached to grant a financial concession, but Rick went above and beyond and forfeited his buyer's bonus to make the deal happen.

Rick Merrill would be the agent I would choose again and again whether it be a family member or a dear friend. He is a man of his word and has made selling our property easy. When he tells you he is going to do something, it gets done. He has gone above and beyond our expectations. Very informative from the day we listed to the day we closed. Always communicated whether good feed back or bad. He won't list unless he feels he can make it saleable. A true professional.

Over the last several years, land has not been moving very well. Our property was over 15 acres which, due to the price, was even harder to sell but Rick Merrill worked hard to find us a buyer and we were very pleased with his efforts. We had worked with Rick Merrill previously and knew he would go above and beyond to take care of our needs. As always, he kept us very well informed every step of the way and took time to explain what was going on.

Initial contact was very positive and the full day we spent house hunting was quite pleasant. Lots of local knowledge and personal anecdotes along the way. We were tired from looking at homes in another area, but this was a refreshing change. After we returned home to Colorado and decided to make an offer, Rick made the whole process seamless and trouble free. Excellent communication, tons of help with details, and great expediting of wants and needs. We had similar service from our realtor on the other end, so this entire experience went as smoothly as possible. The only way it could have been improved would have been if somebody else had picked up the cost of moving - that's it! A real pleasure to work with Rick and the others that he helped select to get the closing done in a totally painless and efficient manner.

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
