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.
Carli joined Rich King Real Estate in December 2018 to document best practices, processes, and procedures throughout a real estate transaction.
Becoming a licensed Transaction Coordinator was clearly a perfect fit for Carli. As a Division I collegiate pitcher, Carli learned over many years that breaking down her position into its collective parts (mental toughness, fitness, technique) and focusing on improving each aspect allowed her to excel far beyond most. That discipline has allowed her to also excel in her role with our company.
Carli is responsible for managing all documentation, timelines, deadlines, and client communications after our clients go under contract for the purchase and/or sale of property.
“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
“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
