Get to know Richard Overall
I CARE...two small words that mean so much. As a Realtor® I am obligated by the code of ethics to put the client's interests above my own. One of the things we are called on to do is give advice and opinions concerning real estate transactions. On occasion, the best advice I can give is that buying a home may not be in the best interest of a particular buyer or maybe the lesser expensive home would be a more prudent option or that waiting would be better for the buyer/seller in the long run.
I can proudly say that in the 14 years I have been in this business I have always given the advice that is best for the client. I have never sold a home using sub-prime lending, even though in the past it would have been easy to do. I have advised potential buyers that renting a home would better suit them than buying, even though they were well qualified. I have advised sellers to place their home in mangement instead of taking a loss selling even though that would have made me more money. And most importantly, I have slept well and I am not ashamed to look myself in the mirror everyday. I can look every client I have had in the eye with my head held high kowing that I did what was right for each and every one of them.
Am I the largest Realtor® in the Killeen area? Certainly not the largest in sales volume, but I have a name that I can be proud of and the majority of my business is referral or repeat customers so I must be doing something right. Am I the best Realtor® in the Killeen area? When I am working for you and in your best interest, I AM ABSOLUTLEY THE BEST REALTOR® FOR YOU...BECAUSE I CARE!!!

I am a Killeen local and I have sold real estate in this area for nearly 14 years now. My experience before becoming a Realtor® was in customer service and management. I have carried these skills into the real estate business and I work daily to give the very best customer service I possibly can.
I have a lot of experience with first time buyers, both military and civilian. Military relocation is a pretty specialized area that brings with it a unique set of opportunities. Helping military families with their moves to Fort Hood gives me the chance to introduce them to what Central Texas has to offer.
I also have several investors that I work with regularly. The fact that there are a number of VA foreclosed properties offers a wonderful opportunity for many investors, but knowing which properties are the bargains and which are not is where I come in. I know the market, current trends, how to negotiate the best deal on foreclosures, and when to be agressive with an offer and when to play it safe. In the foreclosure market and you might say I know the "tricks of the trade."
I pride myself on being proficient in contracts and negotiating.
