"Raquel was very attentive and responsive. I contacted her in the morning to help me find a home, and we were looking at a house that very afternoon. Once the contract was accepted, she worked to line up everything needed so that closing happened exactly one month later. She is very friendly and down to earth, making me feel as if I knew her already. There were a couple issues along the way, but she calmly worked through them. I highly recommend Berkshire Hathaway and Raquel Ricci!"

Mike S.

The seller was very difficult to deal with. Raquel kept her composure when others may not have. Additionally, knowing Raquel personally prior to the business relationship I wasn't sure what to expect. I was very pleased that at all times business was business regardless of our previous relationship. Great job!

Patrick F.

Knowledgeable, patient and trustworthy. She helped us find our dream home. She still follow up with us six months after closing on the house. We will love to work with her again. After telling Rachel what we want wanted in a home she went over and above in helping us find it. While working with  her we never felt pressured to make a decision. When we did make a decision we went over everything like she was going to live in that home.

Virginia Beach, VA

Raquel was extremely patient with us and her expert knowledge on the area really helped us. We started looking a few months out once I got my new orders. She was checking out houses for us for a couple months and then spent another 3 months this looking with us almost every weekend. We saw the same  houses multiple times and she never rushed us or made us feel inconvenienced. We relocated with short notice and her knowledge of the areas and schools districts was great since a good school zone was a top priority for us. We got a phenomenal deal, bought well under the market and appraised value and the seller covered a huge chunk of our closing costs. I highly reccomend Raquel and will be using her if we decide to sell!

Have had the opportunity to work with Raquel for years now. When I need a professional, on time, knowledgeable realtor that is sure to put my clients best interest at heart first and foremost, this is whom I call. I have had nothing but amazing transactions with her and am proud to be a partner  with her. Cant go wrong.

Virginia Beach, VA

I'm a first-time home buyer. Using Raquel as my realtor was the best decision I ever made. She is amazing at what she does. Once she got the green light that I was ready within 10 mins I received an email of places she thought I would like to see. She was always just a text or phone call away.  Hands down she's the best!!

Raquel Ricci is an awesome real estate agent.Raquel was our selling agent for a condominium we owned in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The condo was part of a complex that was destroyed by a fire in February 2015. In June, while reconstruction was going on, we decided to sell. Raquel became our agent in July, and we never regretted our decision to go with her.
From the first, Raquel was personable, professional, and most importantly, helpful. We live in Richmond, and other than the first meeting and the end-of-construction walk-through in November which were face-to-face, all contact was by email or phone. Raquel periodically kept us abreast of the reconstruction. At times she was our liaison with the construction company. She was most helpful when it came for us to choose appliances, cabinetry, lighting, bathroom fixtures, carpets, and paint color. Just a day or two before the first open-house, she found a potential buyer. Immediately after the open house, this individual made an offer, which we accepted. Negotiations and closing went smoothly, thanks to Raquel's efforts.

One incident stands out illustrating Raquel's competency. Just prior to an anticipated cold spell in January, she made sure that the faucets were opened just enough to prevent the pipes from freezing. Also, she periodically checked on the condo to make sure everything was intact and functioning properly. An added plus for Raquel is that her husband is a contractor. There were couple times when the need for his quick advice came in handy. We recommend Raquel to anyone who wants to sell or purchase a home. There isn't any doubt that she will do a fantastic job.


Raquel was very helpful.

Raquel was fantastic! As a first-time homeowner on my own, Raquel was very informative, there whenever I needed her, and very quick to resolve any issue that I encountered. I would suggest Raquel to anyone because I know she is there for the client's best interest always.


Extremely helpful understands what I am looking for. She is very responsive and has a pleasant attitude. I will continue to work with Raquel on my properties.

C. Kent

Raquel helped me as a first time home buyer and I cannot recommend her enough. She is always responsive, she is on time and she does not pressure you to purchase outside your means. Her and my loan officer made for an exceptional team that helped me close on time and saved me a lot of money. Thank you!!
