Synergy At Its Best
Founder & President
Rich founded Rich King Real Estate, LLC in January 2017 to provide uncommon professional realty services in the Spokane area.
What makes Rich different from the other 3,000+ RealtorsⓇ in the region is a combination of deep market knowledge having lived in Spokane for over 26 years; more than 22 years of global sales experience; consistently achieving results that rank him among the Top 1% producers in the region; and an uncanny ability to connect with people, gaining their trust and long-term friendships.
Rich is responsible for all client-facing activities to include Buyer/Seller presentations, Listing preparations, Buyer showings, ongoing client consultations, contracts, negotiations, and more.
Colby is a Licensed Realtor in WA and began her career in Real Estate in 2021. She has an eye for detail and passion for serving her clients & community well.
Colby has her hands in almost every aspect of the business to include client, business partner and social media communications, activity management, CRM management, and most importantly—assisting Rich King with Transaction Coordination from the moment a contract is signed to closing and the transfer of keys to the new owners.
“Rich King was recommended to me by a family friend after my father suddenly and unexpectedly passed away, and I needed to sell my childhood family home. In the midst of the terrible grief, the chaos, and the tremendous stress I was under, Rich came in and said, “Don’t worry, I’ll take care of it.”
I had an entire house full of a lifetime of hoarded family stuff that I needed to get rid of before we could list, and Rich said, “Don’t worry, I’ll take care of it.” Every time something came up that I either couldn’t handle, or was too emotionally fragile to face, Rich said, “Don’t worry, I’ll take care of it.”
And he did. Every. Single. Time.
Like an angel of mercy Rich cleaned and prepped the home for sale (I live 5 hours away), took care of all aspects of the home sale (closing FAR above the asking price or appraisal), and dealt with my emotional fragility like a professional counselor. He is not only the finest real estate agent I’ve ever met, he’s one of the finest human beings I’ve ever met, and I would now trust him with my life.
If you are fortunate enough to get to work with Rich King, he will change your life for the better. Thank you for all you did for me, Rich!”
Rusty Knorr, North Bend, WA
“Trust, confidence, and great communication. Just a few of the many great traits that Rich King possesses.
When I decided to put my house on the market and buy a new one, Rich provided me with experience and confidence. He explained in detail what I could expect. Not only that, he found the perfect home for me. (It was the second one he showed me!) Throughout the entire process, he was a call, text, or email away. (I seriously do not think the man ever takes a break.) As a single woman without anyone to bounce ideas off, Rich was always there to answer my questions. He also went as far as taking money off his commission to get me into my new house on time.
I would recommend Rich and his assistant Rocki to anyone that is in the market for RealEstate. It was truly a great experience!”
Mindy Shulkin, Spokane, WA
“Annette and I chose Rich King Real Estate to both sell our Northwood home and assist our purchase of a new home that met our “downsizing” needs. We based that decision on several factors: detailed knowledge of the Northwood housing market; sales acumen; and, a personal approach to detail that generated the trust factor we needed. We don’t anticipate selling our new home any time soon but, if we did, we would choose Rich King and Carli Riordan, his associate, to handle the transaction.”
Dusty & Annette Moller, Spokane, WA
“I had just accepted a job at WSU after having been at my alma mater, Notre Dame, for 10 years and I needed to find a good home for my family…fast! Thank God for Rich King! My wife and I felt very comfortable and confident with Rich right from the very beginning and we made an offer on a house having only seen it through Rich’s eyes…and we love it! Rich isn’t just a trusted realtor, he and his wife, Mary-Pat, have become good friends of ours.”
George Keegan, South Bend, IN
“Our experience buying and selling with Rich King was better than we had ever thought possible! He was professional, courteous, understanding and helped us navigate through our many options to find a home that was just the right fit for our family! Character is important to our family, and we wanted someone to walk us through this process with honesty and integrity. I would not hesitate to buy or sell with Rich again! Not only did he help us sell our home, but helped us buy a home and close both on the same day! Our previous home was on the market for 25 hours before we got the offer we accepted. No one will work harder to help you sell quickly and buy intelligently.”
Chuck and Becky Evans, Spokane, WA
“My wife and I began thinking about selling our home last September. It was 3400+ sq ft and we only lived in half of it. We had seen Rich’s advertisements around town and decided to give him a try. We are so glad we did! He came to our house and we began the process of getting the house ready to sell with some ideas from Rich. Rich then came up with a selling price. We never thought we would get that much for the house, but it sold for full price the first weekend it went on the market in October. Rich did a great job of marketing the home on several different platforms. Our buyers came from the Tri-Cities. After our house sold Rich assisted us in finding a new home. We looked at several builders but ended up selecting Hayden Homes to build for us at the recommendation of Rich. We are very pleased with the results! Through the process, Rich was always accessible by text, email, or phone. He’s very patient and explains things well. He was also our go-between with the buyer’s agent and did an excellent job.
We would highly recommend Rich to assist in buying or selling a home.”
Greg and Audrey McCoy, Spokane, WA
“I needed to list my home during the height of the pandemic in 2020. I had lived in my home for 17 years, raised my daughter there, and have numerous friends I consider family in Spokane. Deciding to move was a tough decision and listing my sweet house that I loved so much was not easy. Rich assured me that things would still be fine and he made me aware of the things I needed to do AND didn’t need to do to get my home market-ready. I relocated upon listing my home, leaving Rich at the helm. Numerous problems came up with the house that required attention and Rich took care of them. To say he went above and beyond would be an understatement. Every step of the way, Rich kept me in the loop all the way in Arizona! Rich is not only the one you want as your real estate agent, he is one you want to consider a friend. Ethically and morally, Rich is a good person who will do the right thing for you in buying or selling a home.
Thank you again, Rich!”
Andria Ratliff, Tucson, Arizona
“In early October, my family and I began contemplating selling our home in the Pasadena Park neighborhood. We had remembered Rich King stopping by our home previously to introduce himself and discuss real estate. We weren’t in the market at that point, but over the years we had continued received mailings from Rich. This made it easy for Rich to be our first call when we decided to explore it more intently. Rich set an appointment, showed up, evaluated our home and helped us put together a strategy and price that helped us meet our goals. Thanks to Rich’s effective marketing plan, our home was only on the market for around 5 days. Rich and Carli ensured that we were aware of showings and gave us plenty of notice during the short time on the market. Once an offer was accepted, they helped us move through the process in a stress-free way. Rich and Carli were always available to answer questions, explain documents and provide guidance. They helped ease our minds when working through inspections, appraisals and closing. After all was said and done, I can say that this was a great experience. When the time comes for my family and I to pursue our next home purchase, Rich King Real Estate will be the first call that I make.”
Ed & Amanda Bedell, Spokane, WA
“Rich King is one of the most thorough people I’ve ever met. He knows his stuff and he is also compassionate and gracious towards his customers and clients with his knowledge. He uses what he knows to guide a client step by step through the ups and downs of the home selling process. If you are looking for a VERY dependable, VERY ethical, and VERY hard-working agent that will get the job done, call Rich King.”
Jonah and Carly Lanclos, New Orleans, LA
“My experience with Rich King as my seller’s real estate agent was entirely positive, from beginning to end. I interviewed three potential agents to list my beautiful home in Northwood. Rich did his homework and convinced me that he could get a very good price for it. In fact, it was $50,000 more than the other two agents. And he delivered; the house did sell at this higher price, in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rich also helped me navigate the ins and outs of an estate sale, and donating large items that I was unable to sell. He did an excellent job of staging the home, and he convinced me to do some updating of fixtures, floors, etc. But when I said that something was just too much, he repeated his oft-used phrase – “I work for you.”
If I have real estate needs in the greater Spokane area, I will definitely go back to Rich. I recommend that you do the same.”
Bruce Kuennen, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
“We knew of Rich King before he became our Real Estate Agent. His reputation and presence in our area was well known. We never considered any other agent but Rich, and it proved to be a very wise choice.
I believe the two things that stand out the most with Rich are honesty and hard work although he has many other great qualities. He also spends lots of his own money promoting properties when he has no guarantee of ever getting anything back on his investment.
We had to move out of our home before it sold and Rich took responsibility for the property like it was his own. He checked on it all the time and made sure it was in perfect condition for showing. Every suggestion he made in reference to presenting our house the best was correct. Conversely more of my ideas were wrong! I am so thankful for Rich’s knowledge and professionalism.
In our lifetime we have sold 8 homes. All of those experiences with Realtors before this one were mixed, some good and some bad. None were anything like the great experience we had working with Rich. As “maturity” is catching up with us, we decided to move from Spokane to Corvallis Oregon to be closer to our kids. I really wish we were moving to the Spokane and our kids were there. That way we could continue our friendship with Rich King!
One more thing: Carli Riordan, Rich’s assistant, is also amazing! She reported to us on every showing and kept us informed on the real estate market. She is smart, articulate and really knows her “stuff”. Most importantly she is very nice!”
Frank & Gail Wiprud, Corvallis, Oregon
“Rich and Carli were consummate professionals throughout the listing and selling process, and always responsive to questions or concerns that arose. The presentation of the property was first rate, both in person and online. Closing was incredibly simple. Throughout the process, RIch and Carli respected my unique preferences, and remained in constant contact. Both were always available when needed. I could not be more pleased with the effort and the results of working with Rich King Real Estate.”
Craig Gracyalny, Spokane
“As we were soon relocating out of the Spokane area, we weren’t sure who to speak to about listing our much-loved home. On the same day that we saw a Rich King Real Estate sign in our neighborhood, we spoke to a friend who recommended him as well. He was listing her home and she trusted him completely. We met with Rich soon after and were blown away by his knowledge of the area market and his professionalism. We hired Rich to list our home at a price he recommended due to his analysis which was above what we had anticipated. We received a first-day offer which we accepted! Rich and his awesome team (extra kudos to Carli) worked with us every step of the way, from the beginning through closing (just 30 days later). Rich also went above and beyond, checking in on our house after we moved out of the area, until the new owners took possession. We highly recommend Rich King and are so thankful that we found him!”
Dave & Kelli Schreiner, Kennewick
“We met Rich King when he knocked on our door and said he had just sold a home in our area. After talking with Rich, it became apparent that he was a seasoned Realtor. He met with my husband and I the next day. Rich was not aware that we had previously had our house on the market. We told him that we had met with another agent and that we had made an offer on a senior duplex, but it was rejected. We were so disappointed! We told Rich what we were looking for and he understood. And when we found another one similar, but better, he knew exactly what he had to do to get us in that new home–and he succeeded! Rich has the knowledge, maturity, and experience of having been in the business of selling for more than 20 years. When it came to selling our house, we had two offers within 8 hours. Rich knows homes and has the expertise to make things happen. Even when we hit a ‘hiccup’ during a transaction, he came through with flying colors. He never dropped the ball and that is why we are in the home of our dreams. He was always actively looking out for us. He is extremely knowledgeable in all phases of buying and selling real estate and keeps his clients abreast of what was happening through the entire process. We would highly recommend Rich!”
Jim & Jeri McGuire, Spokane
“We recently bought our dream home thanks to Rich and his team. They are patient and professional. We toured several beautiful homes before finding our gem. Rich handled the complexities of a FSBO and us being in and out of state flawlessly. The purchase process was easy and transparent. Rich also introduced us to several great restaurants and the college sports culture of Spokane. We are super excited to move up and live in our Washington State dream home. Thanks Rich!”
Troy & Mary Trimble, Spokane
“Rich King and Carli Riordan were absolutely fantastic to work with! They were timely in their responses and always updated me with what was going on. Even if one of them was out of the office, they referred me to the other teammate to answer the questions I had. Being my first time purchasing a house, I was pretty anxious to find out about the process and what was needed to make it happen. I was given every opportunity to review every line of every contract with Rich, even as late as 10PM one night. I cannot stress enough how helpful everyone was and make my home buying experience an absolute treasure. Start to finish was a little over a month and I got my new keys today! Thank you guys so much for the help and I recommend anyone to reach out to Rich King Real Estate when they’re looking to buy or sell their next home!”
Taylor Navin, Spokane
“I highly recommend Rich King Real Estate Services. Rich represented our family in two commercial purchases within 12 months of each other that have subsequently become our retirement income. In the process he also steered us away from a bad deal which I am eternally grateful. He was able to do this because of his extensive knowledge of the area and products. You can’t go wrong with Rich’s services!”
Joe Gately, Loon Lake
“We are very thankful that we had Rich to help us sell our home, as well as buy our new home! He always put our needs before anything else and worked very hard to make sure we got the house we wanted. He is quick to reply, patient, honest & very professional!”
Connie Veselits, Spokane
“Rich King is a great realtor! I give him the highest rating someone can receive. He first introduced himself when we had a garage sale. He gave us a business card and said he would like to be our realtor. There was sincerity and authenticity in his way, without a hard, aggressive sell. Rich was friendly and personable. He took the time to listen and find out what our needs and goals were. He worked with us to produce an asking price based on data from a formula that considered many factors, including recent neighborhood sales, square footage, house features and amenities, and sale price relative to tax value. He made himself available during times that I know were inconvenient to he and his family…including multiple phone calls and visits on Memorial Day weekend, dinner time, and Hoopfest. When we received offers, he gave us the time we needed to thoroughly review them, answer all questions, and structure successful counter offers. He continued to be there every step of the way—from the agreement of sale, through the signing, and the closing. He was patient, understanding and empathetic to us as we were also in the process of buying a home out of town at the same time we were selling our Spokane home, which was stressful. Working with Rich was one of the best decisions we made and was one of the best working relationships or experiences we have ever had. We have the deepest respect for Rich. I highly recommend him to be your realtor.”
Jeff Bresnahan, Santa Maria, CA
“I have purchased 9 units in total through Rich King. He’s professional, responsive, and works incredibly hard to find the type of properties I am looking to add into my portfolio in Spokane and the surrounding area. He’s the best realtor in the region and you will not regret working with him.”
Dean Rogers, Tokyo, Japan
“We moved to Spokane in August of 2017. Shortly thereafter we met up with Rich King of Rich King Real Estate. We can’t imagine having chosen a better real estate agent. Rich patiently stuck with us through a tough seller’s market, regularly taking us out over the course of seven or eight months, guiding us through the process of finding the kind of home we envisioned, never losing patience. He was always upbeat, kind, professional, and fun to be with. Perhaps most importantly, he seemed, without fail, to sincerely place our interests first, and despite the extensive hours of time that he gave, over those months, without a “sale.” We never once felt any pressure from him to “make an offer.” There were, indeed, a few homes we might well have purchased, but which we decided to forego after considering Rich’s honest opinion about the drawbacks of those properties. By the time we found our home (one beyond our initial hopes or expectations) in the Five Mile area, we had come to consider Rich not just a real estate expert, but also a friend. We enthusiastically recommend Rich King to anyone looking for a home in the wonderful city of Spokane.”
Kent Johnson, Spokane
“We were very grateful for the providence of God that connected us to Rich King. He was everything we could have hoped for, and much more, as we searched for a realtor in Spokane. Our situation was a bit unusual as we only had one day to look at housing possibilities and then returned to our work overseas. Rich looked out for our best interests and even found a new and better condo than the one we initially made an offer on. He didn’t have to do that. Rich is a terrific example of serving people. In fact, I would say that is the real business he is in, not real estate. We really can’t say enough good things about Rich’s personal and professional service. He is the kind of person you hope you get to do business with – personable, timely and helpful communication, willing to go the extra mile, making money is secondary to being helpful to people. I’m sure that is a main reason he is such a successful realtor.”
Joel Garrison, Spokane
““Above and beyond.” This describes the wonderful service Rich King provided us throughout the sale of our home. Rich spent countless hours making multiple market analyses for us. He provided us with all the facts, gave us his professional opinion, but never pressured us in making a decision one way or the other with the repairs we chose to make. We are beyond pleased with the service that Rich has provided to us. There is no way the sale of our home could have happened as quickly or efficiently without Rich going above and beyond. We truly do believe he is the best Spokane has to offer and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”
Hannah Osborne, Kennewick
“From day one we felt totally confident working with Rich and there was such a profound level of comfort and trust with him. When you’re dealing with something this major in life, knowing you’re in the best hands is an invaluable feeling. There were some major repairs that needed to happen on the home we made an offer and we ended up negotiating with the sellers. Rich really shines in this area with his thought process around making an offer and his counter offer strategy. He has a tremendous attention to detail and is incredibly thorough. He also caught typo’s in some of the paperwork during the closing procedures that ultimately saved us from wasting time and from encountering any major headaches. We love our new home and are extremely grateful to have had Rich as our Realtor. We simply cannot sing his praises enough!”
Mike Darrington, Portland
