Tell Us Your Story

Couldn’t be happier to have worked with Rich.

He was diligent in gathering all the information needed to help me find the perfect home. He has amazing communication and patience to give you comfort and confidence when searching for a home. He was able to negotiate multiple services for me including negotiating new electrical (service) for my home. Strongly recommend! Thank you Rich!

I have worked with Rich and Claude on over 10 sales and purchases in the Seminole Heights area over the last several years.

They are always professional, organized and quick to respond to questions. They are the best real estate team I have ever worked with!

Anita Spofford

"Continue to do great work and you will be blessed in many ways.

Thank you for taking the time and extra steps in assisting me and my mom. We really appreciate your efforts."

Denise Lewis

"Rich & Claude, Thanks for being so wonderful to work with over these past several months.

You truly exceeded our expectations and we appreciate your patience, as I know we weren't the 'easiest" clients to work with! Not only will we refer you to any friends or colleagues who are looking for an agent, but we feel as if we have gained lifelong friends in you both. Thank-you so much again for helping us find the house we love!"

"When my mother told me she wanted to sell her house and buy a newer, smaller one, I just knew that the next six months of my life was going to be filled with repairs, contracts, and headaches - but that was before Rich found my mother's For-Sale-By-Owner sign.

He ended up selling my mother's house AS-IS (no repairs) for TOP DOLLAR. He then spent the next couple of months diligently looking for my mother's dream home - which he found and took care of every aspect of the sale, from negotiations to closing."

Louis Betz

Had a difficult property to sell and Rich and Claude came through brilliantly!

I had tried to sell it myself but had no luck. I then enlisted the Team of Rich and Claude and they sold it in short order for the price I was hoping for. I have used them for over 10 sales over the years and each time they do all that I could hope for and more. Their communication is great in that they usually answer their cell phones, but if they can't they call back right away. All the details of the sale they are on top of and guide you through, home inspection, appraisal, paperwork, etc. I would highly recommend this professional team!

Tom Casper

"I always knew what my dream home would look like, but I always felt the home would remain a dream.

Rich listened, and then drove me straight to my new was love at first sight. Rich and Claude are the true meaning of professionalism and excellence.. the dynamic duo assisted me with navigating the challenging waters of the real estate world...I couldn't have realized my dream without these two gentlemen!"

Fernando Garcia

"Rich sold my house the first week at 100% of asking price!

You bet I'm thrilled!"

E Clifton

"My husband and I wanted to find investment properties at a certain price point that were move-in ready for renters.

Rich & Claude found our investment property and they are still looking for others. We get emails all the time from them. It's like they works around the clock."

Leslie M

"Just a quick note to thank you for your assistance with the purchase of Katie and Erin's new home.

They are so proud of the home that they are making for themselves. The whole process went so smoothly, it was great knowing that you were just a phone call or email away, especially since Tim and I were so far from the "action"! You can be sure that when, not if, we need to sell or purchase property again in the Tampa area, you will be our first phone call! Thanks you so much!!"

Sue, Tim, Katie and Erin Killian

Rich and Claude helped us into our first home, and then sell that home to help our growing family move into an even better fit in a beautiful and up-and-coming neighborhood.

We were so thankful for their support and guidance. Their knowledge and years of experience made us confident with all of the (many) moving pieces of buying and selling. We recommend them to everyone!

Katie & Eric Turner

I would like to take this opportunity to thank and highly recommend Rich Guagliardo as a Realtor.

Rich was instrumental in selling my childhood home. Rich ran into some issues with the buyer’s finance company and handled them and let us know what was happening. For instance we were supposed to close on the first and the buyer’s finance agent abruptly went on vacation without turning over any paperwork. Rich went all the way up to the vice president of that company to inquire about what was happening and who could fill-in for him to expedite the closing. Rich showed the house several times and was always professional and let us know feedback from the potential buyers. Rich worked very hard and treated this sale as if it was his home being sold. I HIGHLY recommend Rich for any of your real estate needs!

Alesia Mosse

"I really like the way he pointed out the problem with the bathroom floor.

He wasn't worried that he would lose the sale - he was looking out for my best interest."

D Monfred

"Rich was the only one looking out for me.


Jill Kalajian

"Rich Guagliardo provides a level of excellence in customer service that far surpasses any other realtor we had met in our search to purchase our new home.

Rich definitely went above and beyond in helping us through the home buying process. As first-time buyers, we had a lot of questions and Rich helped us feel confident about our decisions every step of the way. Rich is an amazing communicator, a true professional and now a friend."

J Restrepo and J Spooner

"Rich sold my house in 2-DAYS for $13,000 OVER ASKING PRICE!

The 'For Sale' sign arrived after I signed the contract! I don't know - he must just have buyers lined up or something."

Joe Crumley

"Rich and Claude went way beyond the ordinary in helping us.

I've bought and sold 8 homes over the years and have never had an agent take such a genuine interest in helping us make a sale with truly our best interest at heart. What amazing people these two men are. To anyone looking for either a selling or buying agent I can attest that the two gentlemen are CLIENT'S agents. They will exceed your expectations and truly work for you whether you are buying or selling. I can never thank them enough for the wonderful job they did for us."

I unexpectedly started working with Rich when I met him at a house he was showing for the seller in which I was interested.

I had seen other houses and met other real estate agents but Rich truly didn't make me feel pressured to work with him which was refreshing and he knew Seminole Heights because he lived there. He even went as far as to invite my other half and I to a chilli cookoff after one of the first times we met. Sadly, we did not make it to taste the best chilli in SH but I knew that he was truly a neighbor and not just an agent. I could go on and on about my own waffling on buying a house but at the end of the day Rich was there to answer questions, show me houses, and be aggressive when I needed it without pressuring me and overwhelming me. This was huge for me as a first time and nervous buyer. Rich was even quick to act/respond when I wanted to look at a home during his one weekend out of town! Throughout the process Rich was happy to reach out to the selling agent, make accommodations for me throughout covid, and was thoughtful enough to wear a mask during all of our interactions no matter how brief. During the final hours(literally) of closing Rich even discovered an unallocated credit that was well over 1K that my lender hadn't even found!!! Happy would be an understatement of how I felt when he found that. Couple that with a thoughtful closing gift and I was reassured in my decision to work with him. I would recommend Rich to my friends and family. I would especially recommend Rich to anyone looking to buy in Seminole Heights and the surrounding areas. He is part of 'the hood' and you can't beat that. Thanks for everything Rich and I look forward to a few martinis together in the near future!

"My husband and I were looking for the perfect house.

Rich found us wandering through Seminole Heights one day and was so pleasant. He would send us continuous emails on any properties that fit our criteria, and was very flexible to meet our schedules. Rich found us a For-Sale-By-Owner and negotiated it to OUR PRICE. He made this whole process so easy and really stayed on top of the situation by scheduling appointments, keeping everyone from the credit union to the title company in the loop, and most importantly us! I love his honesty, enthusiasm, and dedication to us. I would recommend him to anyone!"
