Rico helped us navigate the stressors of buying our first home when we weren't even present to view them. He went above and beyond making extremely detailed videos so we could view them on our own time. He made the experience much less stressful and was very knowledgeable. He was so great, that we decided to ask him to help us to sell our home 3 years later! Being military, we had a short-notice window to do so. And again, he made it seem easy and enjoyable. Answering all of our questions and giving us tips to help stage and get a great offer. If you are looking for a realtor who truly cares about you and has a wealth of knowledge in buying/selling homes, then I highly encourage you to give Rico a call!

Working with Rico was a pleasure. His easy going, reliable and trustworthy personality, along with his expertise allowed for a reduced stress and quick sale experience of my home. I would no doubt work with Rico again were I still in California and highly recommend him!

Rico has been great to work with over the years. He has helped me and my family buy and sell 2 houses with zero hassle. His responsiveness to our needs was on point and he took the time to walk us through every question we had. With Rico you feel like family and you know that he is looking out for your best interest. That is what makes him special.

Rico Castillo was my real estate agent for the sale of my home in Antelope that took place at the beginning of June. Before he put my house on the market, he explained to me the aspects of the sale process, what I need to do on the house, how much I could get from the sale, and roughly how long it would take to finish the sale process. When he put the house on the market, he brought in professional photographer to get good quality pictures and video of the house in addition to the video and photos that he took and posted on several internet sites. Once the offers come in, he showed me what my options are for me to make an informed decision. Overall, his guidance helped to sell my house at a price that I was happy with. He was always professional, calm, and courteous for explaining what each step is and what I should do in the process of selling my home. He was always available to return my calls to answer my questions. I would recommend Rico Castillo as a real estate agent to buy or sell your house.

We made an offer on a home that was not contingent on the sale of ours. But, we needed to sell our house - and fast - in hopes that it would close before our new home did. We interviewed Rico on Wednesday. He had a very thorough plan for his approach and our plan was to list the next week on Thursday. Change of plans - we called him the next day and asked if he could get our home listed TODAY...and he did! Our home was listed that same day, complete with beautiful photos;. he held an open house Saturday with lots of traffic, we had multiple offers and accepted one on Tuesday. The sale of our home closed within 14 days without a hitch. Rico is kind, responsive, and knowledgeable. With a background in mortgage lending, he was able to offer insight that other agents can't. We asked to use the same title company we were using for our transaction, as that would have made the transfer of funds effortless. Rico insisted on using the Coldwell Banker title company, which added a layer of complexity that could have been avoided. Other than that, Rico was a miracle worker that did everything in his power to make us feel as if we were his most important client.

I can say honestly that I wasn't the easiest client to work with. I wanted a lot with little to offer. I took up a lot of time and effort with Rico and he wouldn't even let me buy him coffee to assist.
An extreme professional and ridiculously courteous.
I can't see why other realtors are even working when they can't compare.
His honest feedback, experience, and candor are welcome in any life changing or business transaction.
He is the best.

We're so glad we found Rico! We were working with another agent but they did not have the enthusiasm or energy that Rico has. He was very attentive, had great advice, he set up wonderful home tours for us, and really made us feel like we were a team. We loved his personality and sense of humor. It really took the edge off for us in this sellers market. We found our home in just a few months and Rico was with us every step of the way during the buying process. Professional, knowledgeable, and just an all around great guy. I highly recommend Rico and I tell everyone I know if they need an agent, Rico is the one to contact!

It was great working with Rico. He’s very knowledgeable and he was there all the time answering all of my questions from start to finish with no hesitation. Being a first time home buyer Rico helped me finding right house for me and we really worked as a team. I always felt supported through the entire home buying process.
I will definitely recommend him, he’s the best..:)

I was referred to Rico, after multiple failed, and disappointing attempt, to find an honest and hard working professional, that would leave no stone unturned to get me into a home. That is exactly what I found with him! He immediately started narrowing down on homes I could be interested in, setting up showings and getting me all the information I needed to decide. He patiently and without pressure walked me through the entire process, all the way to my dream of home ownership! I am so very grateful for the help, and the attitude he displays towards his work.


Worked with Rico for two years during a pandemic. He was patient and attentive and guided me through every step of offering, discovery and closure. He and his team are so easy to work with and very responsive and flexible. Would completely recommend him to anyone looking for their first or next home.

Marlana Robinson

My partner and I were moving from Seattle to Cali and only had a few days to secure a home before departing. Rico spent his entire weekend with us showing us home after home. Since we aren't from the area, we relied heavily on Rico's expert knowledge of safe communities and what our commutes would look like to work. Rico is very knowledgeable and will go above and beyond for his clients. Even though we closed on our house Rico still reaches out from time to time to check in on us. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home.

Rico was amazing!!

Annette Cart

I was a first time buyer on limited timeline and Rico well aware of my situation always maintained patience, knowledge and professionalism every step of the way never wavering through the entire home buying experience making it much more pleasant minimizing any undue stress which I extremely appreciated. I would strongly recommend him as an real estate agent to others, my family or friends interested in purchasinag a new home.

Thank you Rico!!!

Iva Brito

Rico was great during the entire home buying process. We could reach out to him by phone or text and always got a response. He had so much patience with us as first time buyers and explained everything to us along the way. He was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. We felt like we knew him and months later he still checks on us from time to time. Hope to work with him again in the future. Thanks Rico.

Was highly recommended by my Co-worker and I could see why. Rico and his team help my dreams become reality in this current market. I highly recommend him to others and will be using him again when purchasing my 2nd home. Aloha 🤙

Judy Cunningham

Rico was a pleasure to work with and very professional. I always felt supported through the entire home-buying process. In addition, he negotiated excellent terms for me with the sellers of the property. I would recommend Rico to anyone.

Rico Castillo has decades of experience in many areas of the real estate business, and it is obvious. He shares his knowledge and is wonderful with people. He is a skilled negotiator. Rico was successful in lowering my purchase price by $5,000 which lowered my monthly payment. I have much to learn from Rico and have stayed in touch with him since purchasing my home. Rico consistently is quick to respond and follow-up. I will contact Rico when it's time to sell my home as he is an agent for purchasing and selling a home. I highly recommend Rico Castillo as a Real Estate Agent whether you are buying or selling a home.

Naomi Candello

Traveling from San Jose to Sacramento was exhaustive for me with 2 dogs so Rico offered to take me on virtual tours of properties that I wanted to see. I was able to view multiple properties without the stress. I Made an offer quickly on a newly listed property and it was accepted! Rico was prompt with all his appointments and his texting and email communication kept me informed constantly. Plus, if he didn’t have an answer to a question he went the extra mile to get the answer. If you want a professional, responsive real estate agent then choose Rico!

Simone Afghari

Rico did an awesome job helping us find our dream home! We are first time homebuyers who needed a bit of hand-holding through the whole process, and Rico was there day an night to answer our 10 million questions. He worked hard to negotiate good terms on our contract, and that ended up saving us thousands of dollars. I would recommend Rico to anyone getting into the home buying process for the first time, especially in this crazy market. Thanks Rico!

Bradley Smith

We had a great experience with Rico. Would recommend working with him to anyone I can. He helped us buy our home and we will never forget it.

Linda Ganeshan

I recently had the pleasure of working with Rico when looking for my home. From day 1, Rico was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for homes to view based on what I was looking for. All throughout the negotiations and closing Rico was there quickly handling any issues that may have risen. If the time ever comes when I will be looking for a new home, there isn't any question on who my Realtor will be!

Vicente Arespacochaga

Rico is one very professional and extremely knowledgeable Agent we’re had a privilege of working with in the last 4 months. We’ve had to work with several agents and Rico was just the type that will be there for you from start to finish no matter what.
To us, he is second to none in this businss and we can highly revommend him to any of our Family and friends without hesitation or second thought.

David Cosio

Rico has been an absolute rock star when it comes to home locating. Unfortunately the program I was in I was not able to find a home and I’m relocating which is why I’m not going to be utilizing Rico. But he is responsive he helps you out he walks you through the whole program you text me the homes that fit the program and just the absolute rock star a pleasure was all mine
