Customer Ratings

Rich Blessing has been rated by 3 customers


“Rich Blessing is the best realtor that I have known or heard about - he far exceeded any reasonable expectation. My wife and I interviewed three different groups and Rich was far and away the best choice based on his understanding of the real estate market in Ashburn and the Loudoun County area in general. His innovative marketing approach maximized perspective buyers' exposure of our home and its attributes. The virtual tour was amazing and allowed buyers to "walk through" the house before making a visit. Rich went above and beyond all expectations throughout the process. He made sure to maximize curb appeal and even personally trimmed trees to make the house more visible. Since I had already purchased another home, he made arrangements for the minor maintenance requirements that needed to be done based on the buyer's home inspection - meeting both an electrician and a plumber. When the Ashburn Farm Association wanted changes made as part of the disclosure process, Rich helped arrange for work at the house and personally painted our garage door. I recommend Rich Blessings to anyone considering selling or buying a home in Loudoun County without reservation. ”

“Rich knows the Northern Virginia are well and was a big help when it came to negotiating and communicating with the seller. As first time homebuyers, it was advice and leadership much appreciated.”
Dylan Cashman, Sterling VA (Buyer)
“Rich and the Century 21 team were fantastic to work with. After having watched an overimproved unit similar to ours take 6 months to sell, and our neighbors unit taking 13 months, we were concerned - Rich advised on preparations and after listing we had multiple offers in just 3 days!! Then he took us to multiple locations and patiently zeroed in on what we were looking for, but the market was hot so most places were under contract before we could get to them. Still, Rich located the perfect new single family house for us! When it came time to close on our townhouse, Rich worked through the details with us to sell our townhouse to an incredibly picky and naive buyer/agent where we almost walked away. The point is, I recommend Rich and his Century21 team without any reservations - you may not experience the hiccups we did, but it would be good to have their expert professionalism if you do.”
Jason Reabe (Buyer)
