Richard Martin is a gem of a real estate agent. We came across an ad in a real estate magazine for a home for sale in palm springs. We called the agent mentioned in the ad and as it came to pass we bought the house. That agent was Rick Martin. He was so honorable and efficient that we have since hired him as our local property manager ( we share our time between homes). It has been a year and so far, all the workman, companies, etc we have asked Rick referrals for have proven to be very reliable and skilled. We are very pleased with both the home and our agent/ contact. I would give hime. 5 + star rating in a world full of 3 stars.
