Customer Testimonials

Rich was awesome from the start, from the moment he responded to my inquiry via Zillow, through two home inspections, a terminated contract on the first property and late stage re-negotiation of a closing date on the second and final property. Rich was supportive, patient, and helpful throughout, always advocating and helping us to ensure we were in the best possible place on all fronts, a total expert in Cape May. Rich even helped us out with post closing recommendations for some needed work. He was proactive and communicative on all fronts through every stage of the process and highly responsive to any and all inquiries at any and all times of the day. I highly recommend Rich.

Richard was fantastic! We needed to do a fast close on our new home which required lots of quick response from his team. They were amazing and came through for us in a big way! Richard has reached out since our closing to offer continued support and help as we are new to the area. Would highly recommend Richard to anyone wanting to buy or sell in the Cape May area.

Rich helped us sell the property from out-of state. It was an easy process administratively, though took longer than anticipated due to the market as we listed in December. We started the ask too high and had several price deducts to sell the property. All-in it took about six months to sell. Rich knows the area and business well and would highly recommend his services.

We found Richard Parker to be very responsive and proactive in his communication. He provided us with great guidance on several aspects of the purchase process including the offer price and negotiation process. He kept everything moving throughout the process and the closing could not have gone smoother. Rich is very knowledgeable of Cape May and surrounding areas and is obviously in tune with the community. We would not hesitate to recommend Richard Parker to friends and family.

He returned all phone calls promptly and was very accommodating to our schedule. He coordinated all work necessary for both the sale and purchase of our homes. His real estate expertise, accompanied with his vast knowledge of Cape May and surrounding areas, made both transactions effortless. We would highly recommend Richard Parker to anyone considering a real estate transaction.

Can't say enough good thing about Rich. We listed our property and within a month we had two offers very close to our asking price. He also handled many small details as I live almost 200 miles from the property we were selling. He keep me informed and the closing went very smoothly. Look forward to working with him in the future if the need arises.

05/24/2019 - Vince

Richard was always available via email, phone, or text messages throughout the process of purchasing my retirement home here in Cape May. As my agent, he suggested language in the agreement of sale that worked in my favor prior to closing. Additionally, he recommended several local services and contractors to me for things I wanted done to my home prior to moving in. All had excellent references - did quality work at reasonable prices. It was a pleasure having Richard as my agent.

01/15/2019 - Brian

Richard Parker knew that we were in the market for a certain type of property at the Jersey shore. He weeded through many potential properties before showing us three of them. All three were close to what we were looking for. We quickly narrowed it down to one, and now own it thanks to Rich.

01/15/2019 - Jack

We found Rich a pleasure to work with in the purchase of our house in North Cape May. Always gave good advice and his reply to our (many) questions and concerns was always timely. (His suggestions were often proactive.) After we met him the first time, we decided to use him exclusively as our buyer's agent as we were impressed by his honest, no-pressure approach. Would highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling Cape May real estate.

01/15/2019 - Sue

Rich was outstanding, he help us with every aspect of our home purchase. We would recommend Rich to anyone buying or selling a home. He helped with the home inspection and was there at settlement.

12/09/2018 - Diane

Rich gave us a very extensive price analysis for listing our home. He came up with a solid price that was $30,000 higher than another realtor and he turned out to be right. He was very helpful during the negotiation process and was extremely helpful in finding us local contractors to fix up the small things required by our inspection report. He was always responsive and kept us informed during any the process. He was always very quick to answer any questions. We used him again to purchase another house. It was in an over 55 community and he assisted me in getting financial information and the community by-laws. I would highly recommend him.

12/09/2018 - John

My wife and I had always wanted our own "little slice of heaven" down the shore and Rich Parker helped us make that a realty. When I saw that a property came on the market that was in our price range, I reached out right away. Rich Parker was the listing agent and agreed to show us the place. All along the way Rich was a pleasure to work with and proved to be a valuable resource to us. He was "our person" to deal with things in Cape May as we are 2.5 hours away. He did all this for us and was always willing to go the extra mile. We would certainly use and always recommend him in the future to all our friends.

10/09/2018 - Mike

Rich Parker made the finding and purchasing of my Cape May property painless. He actually listened and understood what it is I wanted. He took care of a lot of the annoying details, made suggestions and was a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process. Rich Parker knows Cape May and as far as I'm concerned is the best, most hands on realtor you could hire.

10/07/2018 - jrosellawymer

My husband and I had worked with Richard for years as renters. He was always very conscientious, helpful and knowledgeable about the area, so he was the natural choice as our buyers agent. Once again, Richard went above an beyond and made the process of buying our dream home seamless. He is an honest and caring agent and all around great guy. We HIGHLY recommend him.

09/06/2018 - Tricia

There are not enough superlatives to describe the wonderful service Rich provided during our recent purchase. He is very knowledgeable about the area and shared many excellent tips and recommendations with us. He was always extremely responsive during and even after the sales process and frequently reached out to check in and/or remind us of something that needed to be done. Today, over a month after the sale, Rich actually came out to help us with our pool filter which was not working. In addition to being a fantastic agent, Rich is a terrific person. It has been such a pleasure working with Rich!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

09/06/2018 - kaspmp

I could not be happier with Rich and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. He was extremely responsive to all of our our questions and very diligent in our search for a beach house. It is rare that you find someone so professional and competent. From the beginning of our search, through settlement and even beyond, Rich has been there for us. I am very happy with the outcome!

09/02/2018 - John

We came to Cape May Area to purchase a second home. We had found Rich through Zillow and found him to be immediately responsive. He took us to see several homes and we quickly made an offer. The inspection process and closing went well.. We would highly recommend him.

06/22/2018 - Albert

We have worked with Rich more than once on real estate transactions and he is very professional, prompt and efficient. He's always one step ahead of everyone else. He helps make the buying and selling process go very smoothly. Rich is also very honest, can't say enough about him. You won't be disappointed!

06/21/2018 - justjj23

Mr. Parker was extremely helpful in navigating all the minor details of this sale. My elderly sister was in residence at the time of most of the viewings and Mr. Parker was extremely careful to schedule them at a time convenient to her. Unfortunately, the cottage did not sell quickly, but the eventual buyer was a perfect match. It was an old cottage and the original offers all came from buyers who wanted to tear down the existing home. I would heartily recommend Mr. Parker to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in South Jersey.

03/09/2018 - margibyus

Rich was the SELLER's agent. We had no agent and came upon the listing in an ad in Exit Zero. From day one, Rich was extremely responsive to our questions and the few concerns we had. His communications was always prompt and thorough and he anticipated many of our needs. He made the entire transaction very easy for us and we are delighted to own our second bit of beautiful Cape May Point.

03/09/2018 - Constance

We feel very lucky to have met Richard who helped us through our ever changing ideas. Richard was extremely patient and so resourceful throughout our process of finding a vacation home. He was constantly sending us information and always quick to respond to our constant questions and concerns. We are now happy owners of a beautiful 3 bedroom condo in Wildwood and we owe it all to him. We highly recommend Richard as we consider him the best of the best!

01/30/2018 - zuser

Richard was my real estate broker for the purchase of my new home. Richard was very thorough and responded to my requests immediately. Richard has good real estate knowledge in selling/buying homes in New Jersey.

01/23/2018 - CHawkins

We had a great experience with Rich Parker. He's familiar with the area, a great communicator, and did a wonderful job of guiding us without being pushy. He responded quickly to all of my questions, whether by text or email, was flexible with our difficult schedule, and made sure our closing was smooth and easy. He also provided good recommendations when we needed a thorough inspection and contractors after our purchase. I'd recommend him and would definitely use him again.

12/11/2017 - Jess

Richard helped my wife and I over a 2 year period until we found the right home. He was not only a seasoned Real Estate agent, he always went above and beyond to help us. I will not do business with anyone else in the area. Great choice and just a great all around person. I closed over a week ago and he still called me to see if he could help us in anyway.

12/07/2017 - zuser

Richard Parker is probably the best real estate agent there is. I live out of state and when I put my home up for sale in Cape May it was sold within a matter of days. It was hard for me to get back down. So with emails and phone calls Rich kept me up  with everything and he did not hesitate to take care of whatever it was that needed to be done. I don't know how I would have handled selling my home without Rich who was so professional, courteous and knowledgeable. He went above and beyond expectations.

10/08/2017 - sambuca

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful our home buying experience was with Rich Parker. Rich tirelessly showed us countless homes...dealt with all of the nuances and unexpected developments that arise in a heated, competitive Jersey Shore real estate market. He gave us good advice..and when we found the home of our dreams, skillfully negotiated the sale and provided the groundwork for a smooth closing. We have already recommended Rich to our friends. If you are looking for a realtor that has YOUR best interest at heart, is very patient and willing to take the time until you find what you need...Rich Parker is the realtor for you. We are proud to call Rich our friend. 

09/19/2017 - Michelle 

Richard is such a wonderful person to work with. His experience and expertise in this field landed us with a home that we absolutely adored. He was very patient and supportive while we were house hunting.... even until after we bought the house. He is always there to help with questions or provide assistance for a need. Overall experience is positive! Great guy! Great agent!

When we first saw a house on Zillow that we thought would be great for me and my fiancé, I got connected to a realtor who ended up being Richard Parker. Rich immediately said we could check the house out at our earliest convenience and we did just that. We walked through and thought it was a little small, so Rich offered up a plethora of options to look at....that day! None seemed to match our liking but Rich was persistent in finding us the perfect fit and never seemed pushy at all, which was very important to us. Every time we saw a potential house on Zillow we liked, he met us there asap. Finally, when we did find "the one" Rich helped us through the whole process. We highly recommend Rich and feel he should be an integral realtor contact for the Zillow team.

02/26/2017 - Rich

If 6 stars were an option, we would assign that rating to Rich Parker. He is the consummate professional. Rich listens, hears and communicates extremely well. He is competent, effective, efficient and empathetic. Rich has the rare ability to suggest convincingly, yet never pressures. We moved from our home before asking Rich to sell it. His attention to us and to our property made us very comfortable that it was well monitored and if there were a problem, Rich would inform us and assist in finding the best solution. Finally, Rich holds himself to the highest standards of honesty and courtesy. Any seller or buyer will win by working with Rich.

02/07/2017 - Kathleen

Rich was great to work with. He is thorough and extremely responsive. When we began looking for a property, we were very casual and indecisive; some realtors might have thought we were not worth continual effort. Rich sent us new listings consistently with no pressure. He was extremely knowledgeable about the listings, understood our needs, and was very helpful through the entire buying process. His laid back manner is enjoyable, and in the end, he helped us negotiate a great price. My husband and I highly recommend Rich Parker!

02/03/2017 - Darren

We give Richard Parker 5 Stars in all departments. More important than being well prepared and informative, Rich was always sensitive to our needs and patient as we found our way through the process. We relied on Rich for direction and he always provided a calm confidence. His comprehensive approach introduced us to all of the various neighborhoods in North Cape May so we had a good first hand look at everything on the market without feeling rushed or pressured in any way. Ultimately we found a nice home in a neighborhood that suits our personalities. We would wholeheartedly recommend Richard Parker to anyone seeking a high quality Realtor experience.

Richard Parker did a wonderful job in getting our house sold quickly, and my husband and I recommend him with out a single reservation. He brings to his profession his vast experience, his knowledge, and his willingness to find answers to every possible question. He put together a great marketing plan with a superb photographer. Richard always gave us plenty of notice to show our home, and gave us several suggestions to help show it to its advantage. He also helped us to arrive at the right price. As a result, we sold our house quickly! Not only is Richard very astute at what he does, he is a very nice man with a great deal of integrity. We were very thankful that we made a great decision when we contracted him to be our agent!

Rich was wonderful to work with throughout the whole process. He went above and beyond to help us sell our house. His professionalism showed through in everything that he did. We will always be grateful for all his hard work!

We had been thinking about buying a shore home for a few years. Seeing Rich on Beachfront Bargain hunters prompted us to action. Rich was great! He worked at our pace and with our schedule. Since we knew what we wanted, he had listings sent to our email which had the parameters we requested. We selected the ones we wanted to view and Rich made it happen. Rich was very thorough and extremely helpful throughout the entire process. He made things very simple for us. Rich is the kind of no-pressure agent who works with you. He was a delight to work with and I would highly recommend him. We are thrilled with the results of our experience with him - we love our shore home!


Richard Parker has excellent knowledge of Cape May and the surrounding area. He worked diligently with us to find the home we wanted. Rich worked the entire weekend showing my wife and I houses. Since we came in from Cincinnati for the weekend we wanted to maximize the time we had searching for homes. Rich had all the houses mapped out for each day. He never once pressured us to pursue any of the houses he showed us. But when we found the house we wanted he worked tirelessly with the seller to complete the sale. My wife and I have the greatest respect for Rich. He is a true professional.

Jim and Suzie M.


I was very pleased with Rich's attentiveness and being so responsive whenever I had a question during the home buying process. He was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him to any seller or buyer looking for an agent to represent them with their real estate needs.

My wife and I recently bought and sold homes in Cape May, NJ, with Richard serving as our agent on both transactions. I have been an attorney for almost 40 years and have worked with many agents. My wife and I have also bought and sold many homes over the years. I can state without equivocation that Richard knows his market inside and out and is more "client centric" than any agent we h ave ever worked with. He has a great orientation for transaction detail and most importantly is a person of integrity. If you would like to transact real estate in the greater Cape May, NJ region, you will be doing yourself a great favor by contacting Richard for assistance.

Rich was a great realtor for us. We found him through his appearance on Beachfront Bargain Hunt and were thrilled that we did. He has a great knowledge of the area and was a great help in purchasing our new home. We appreciated his honesty and attention to detail as well as all of the time he spent working with us to find the right property. We are very happy down the shore and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a house in the area!

03/21/2016 - Beth and Howard

My husband and I have been hunting for our retirement house for over 10 years and have used a fair amount of realtors. Richard Parker is without a doubt the most exceptional realtor we have encountered. He is very knowledgeable about the area, pays particular attention to the wishes of buyers, honest and direct with comments, and extremely hard working. Richard Parker goes above and beyond what a buyer would expect from a realtor. Amazingly his professional demeanor and helpful attitude does not end with the sale. My husband and I are very grateful to Richard Parker for his service to us in this very special purchase.

02/10/2016 - jmalloni

Mr Parker is excellent with sales, rentals, and purchases both standard and those requiring more individual attention. He is always pleasant and professional to work with and very knowledgeable.

My husband and I have bought and sold lots of houses in the 30+ years together. No one can compare to the expertise and smoothness in dealing with Richard Parker! He was relentless and had lots of patience closing the deal on our DREAM house in Cape May!! In this day and age of buying and selling, nothing seems easy. Richard Parker made it as easy as possible. We will forever be grateful to him!!

12/03/2015 - VetteMom

Rich is professional, thorough and very reliable. On several occasions he took initiative and provided solutions to potential problems which I had not even considered. He proved to be very helpful, patient and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him.   

Edward B. April 2013 

Rich found the perfect shore home for us in the Cape May Point area. It was definitely our lucky day when we met Rich Parker. He tirelessly searched for a shore house that met our specific qualifications. His knowledge of Cape May real estate made a couple of novices feel at ease. There were several bids for this house. We believe because of Rich's expert negotiation skills we were the fortunate buyers who got the house! Since the sale, Rich has been a reliable resource for finding skilled and reasonably priced home improvement companies. We highly recommend Rich Parker. He is an expert agent and more!!

P. and L. Solfaro

Mr. Parker has been a tremendously reliable agent for me when buying, selling, and renting even in the most tenuous circumstances. he is much experienced and very on top of issues such as mortgages, shortsales, vacation rentals, long term rentals, management issues, and the everchanging real estate market. he is always pleasant and professional to work with. i hope to be able to work with him for years to come!

April 2012, Monica G.

Very fortunate to have had Rich as our agent. Sold our house in Cape May Point in a very tough market. Always attentive, responsive, and patient. Consider him as much a friend as an agent. HighlyRecommend

Mr. Parker, with whom I had no relation to, or ever met, introduced my wife and myself to a plethora of real estate buying opportunities that we had always hoped we'd find "someday" but never imagined how. We found him by accident searching real estate agents and brokers on the internet. Finding him was like winning the lottery! On our first tour, arranged by him, we felt he was reading our minds better than we were. He took us to a variety of condos, homes,new and old, exactly as we would have hoped but couldn't even properly articulate to him. He has a talent that few real estate agents/brokers ever demonstrate. You would think he's a psychic or something. He seems to know what you may be interested in better than you do. We're not exactly inexperienced as I am engaged in the construction lending business and can appreciate a high quality home better than most. Within a week or two of considering the prospects Mr. Parker showed us, we made a successful bid (with his help, of course) and successfully arranged financing (with his help, of course) and now own a "dream home" we thought we'd never really find, but we did, with his help of course!
