Richard Reid is an excellent realtor with a breadth of knowledge that is unmatched by anyone I have worked with in the past. His attention to detail and friendly pursuit of all areas to get a deal and satisfy his customer are outstanding. Even in areas where it is not necessary, Richard will go the extra mile and even fight the battles that some realtors leave to their clients to sort out later. I had not been in the housing market in quite a number of years and Richard made it seamless. He explained things that I had forgotten and illuminated areas that were new in the real estate business. I will recommend him to any and all I meet.

Richard Reid is "Realtor Extraordinaire" around our house. He was meticulous with every detail imaginable. He did more and knew more than ANY realtor that I have ever worked with over the years. His expertise regarding all things Decatur was impressive. We found a house that we love and didn't think it would be possible. We even were able to get financing which we told was impossible...until we met Richard and his team of housing experts. Thanks to Richard for everything. We can't wait to see him at our house warming party!

Richard is an Ultimate seasoned professional who puts the needs and wants of his clients first! I have worked with many Realtors over the years and find Richard one of the few agents who tells it like it is without making open-ended promises! Richard sold us our lovely home over 5 years ago and we have recommended him since to several of our friends who have all been equally satisfied. If you are looking for a trust worthy, no nonsense-seasoned veteran, with a vast knowledge of the Real Estate market, look no further because Richard is definitely the one!

Richard Reid and his Direct Link Realty team are hands down he BEST real estate group with whom I have ever worked. When I moved to GA four years ago, I was relatively new to real estate investment. I flipped and sold two prior properties in another state, and wanted to continue doing so while in GA, but had to make sure I made the right investments and didn’t take on anything I could not handle (I have a full-time healthcare career, so all investment property work comes secondary to that). Richard took the time to get to know me and my real estate investment goals, and understand my limitations as a buyer and flipper. He educated me on Atlanta’s many sub-communities and outlying cities, and provided comprehensive support throughout each property search, contract negotiation and closing process. Richard remained of great utility after each home purchase, as well. He networks with top-notch contractors and service companies, which made outsourcing various renovation projects stress-free. I knew I could trust anyone he referred, which meant everything to me since these properties were investments for my future. I also relied on Richard’s advice when trying to determine whether to sell or rent a property based on market and economic projections. Despite recently returning to my home state, I continue to rely on Richard to help me find vacation rental investment properties in GA and FL. This man is a one stop shop! Overall, with Richard Reid’s support and guidance, I have maintained a diverse portfolio and profited very well on multiple flip and rental properties. I have sent multiple friends and colleague to him for home purchase and rental needs, as well. All have given me the same feedback regarding their experiences. I feel very fortunate to have found Richard and his top-notch Direct Link Realty team, and am confident anyone working with them will feel the same.

We worked with Richard in the spring of 2017 to find a larger home for our growing family. We could not have been more pleased with Richard’s professionalism and his knowledge of Atlanta real estate, financing options, and cost/considerations for renovations. We were looking for a home that needed some updates and Richard was able to offer helpful and honest assessments of each property’s potential. In a short time, we found just what we were looking for and he even connected us with a fantastic contractor to complete the updates we envisioned on schedule and on budget. If you’re looking for a real estate agent who will act as your partner, Richard is it!

Richard helped us find our home in Morningside. As first time home buyers we had lots of questions & concerns, Richard went above and beyond to help us find the perfect house for us.

by Holen B from Morningside

Richard simply is the best and most professional Realtor you will find in Atlanta. He has helped us close when we were buying and selling, buying a rental property, selling rental property, and helped me navigate the landlord process. He is quick to listen, but will also fight for you when needed. I wouldn't have anyone else list my property or help me find a new one. You will have total comfort with Richard during the entire process.

by Joe E from Norcross

Richard is the most incredible realtor in the ATL! Not only did he find our condo for us to buy five years ago... he sold it for us in record time! He takes the time to listen, find out what your needs are... and boom! He makes it happen! He made both our condo purchase and sale a breeze! Rock on Richard!

by Betsy G from Centennial Olympic Park | Downtown

I have known Richard for many years. He originally showed me properties when I was single, straight out of grad school. He was so helpful and kind. I ultimately didn't end up buying a property then, but when I was getting married a few years later and we started our home search, I immediately called Richard. He helped us get into a house that we absolutely love. Then about 6 months after we closed, he helped us with a big problem we encountered and for that we will be forever grateful. There's no doubt who will be our Realtor next time around!! Thank you Richard for everything.

by Lauren M from Buckhead

Richard and his team helped my wife and I buy our first home. The homebuying process is exciting, but can be stressful, especially for beginners. We cannot say enough good things about our experience with The Richard Reid Team at Direct Link Realty. Richard has all the answers. We chose Richard for his knowledge and experience. We appreciated his availability and patience. He always accompanied us on tours, and was helpful in pointing out flaws or things we needed to be aware of in each home we looked at. We knew he had our best interests in mind. And in the end, we got the right house for us. If you are buying or selling a home, I strongly recommend The Richard Reid Team at Direct Link Realty.

by Steven B from Decatur

Richard was a joy to work with. Right from the start he made us feel like we were his top priority. He put all of our worries to ease from the start and made the stressful process of selling one home and buying another a breeze. We quickly received a full price offer on the home we were selling thanks to his guidance and deep knowledge of the real estate market. Richard was always available to answer all of our questions and made great recommendations for contractors, etc. to use after the sale. He also coordinated all of the companies that visited each house for various reasons during the inspection process. If you are even considering buying or selling a home, do yourself a favor and give Richard a call.

by Claire W from Smyrna | Acworth

Richard and team have been awesome during our selling (in Loganville) and buying (in Decatur) experience. They are always willing to answer questions and never seem to be too busy to help. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone interested in buying and/or selling.

by Aimee W from Decatur

Richard sold our house in Virginia Highlands and helped us find our home in Druid Hills. Richard went above and beyond for us, whether attending to details ahead of open houses, making recommendations for small tweaks to make our house attractive to prospective buyers, or making sure that the marketing photos were just right. On the buying side, he spent plenty of time with us and discerned what we needed before we realized it ourselves. Highly recommend!

by Suzanne S from Druid Hills | Virginia Highlands

In all our years of selling and buying homes Jennifer Reid was absolutely the best agent we have ever used. She was attentive to our needs and always available and willing to look at houses on any given day. We sold our current home within a week, having 3 offers for full asking price. She was the best advocate for us, a great negotiator and was with us every step of the way through and even after closing on the new home we purchased even after our closing date! Choose Direct Link Realty for all your home selling and purchasing!!

by Leslie K in Avondale Estates

Richard is absolutely amazing! This is the third home my husband and I have purchased with Richard and his team. I know that Richard is always working toward our best interest and goes above and beyond for each client. I was wonderfully surprised when he completed a final walk through of our last home just prior to closing, and made a video for us, in order to ensure it remained in the same condition. It was the first time we had purchased a home which was vacant. I simply cannot say enough about the great service we have received with each and every home purchase.

by Anika R - Peachtree Corners, Cascade

Richard was highly professional and knowledgeable. He made the process of both buying and selling a home very manageable, and his responsiveness was top notch. My old home sold very quickly for full asking price. It is quite clear that Richard is one of the top real estate brokers in Atlanta. He takes a comprehensive approach to assisting his clients. Kudos to Richard Reid and his team at Direct Link Realty!

by Michael E from Oakhurst

I would DEFINITELY recommend Jen to be your in-town real estate agent. I'm a fairly independent person so when it came to looking for a house I was inclined to go at it alone but I would not have my home, literally. Zillow is great at proactively sending emails about new homes but she was able to see my home before Zillow and booked the first viewing appointment and that was all the difference. She has all the patience in the world, answered all my questions, accommodated all of my search preferences, steered my where I needed steering and listened when I just needed to talk. Jen and Direct Link Realty also has relationships with inspectors, contractors, other real estate agents, and more that helped glide the process along. Whenever we needed someone to help with the process it was nice to be able to lean on the level of trust that she has with these vendors. I'm 100% certain that I'll reach out to her for any future work that needs to be done with the house. I'm incredibly happy with the house Jen helped me buy and made the whole process as painless as it could possibly be. Thanks again Jen!

by Chad from East Atlanta

We worked with Richard while purchasing our home in the Morningside – Lenox area. Richard significantly exceeded our expectations at every point in the home buying process. Firstly, Richard is a great listener; he internalized our needs quickly and showed us very relevant options. Next, Richard is a consummate professional; he put our needs first, performed exhaustive pricing research and guided us through a very competitive multi-week negotiations process. With Richard’s guidance, we ended up coming within budget, that too in a buyer’s market! Finally, Richard has a strong sense of ownership; he was always able and willing to provide sound advice related to financing, home improvement projects and closing formalities. All in all, I have no doubt that Richard is at the very top of the Realty profession. Working with him, made the home buying process a non-stressful fun process. It was truly a pleasure working with an outstanding professional such as Richard; he will represent us in all realty transactions going forward.

by Sid G from Morningside

Jennifer is the best! No words to describe my experience! She is like a sister. Always on your side.. Always available.. Always on duty! Professionally and humanly talented. I met hundreds of brokers in my life but she is standing out of crowd. Her brother Richard Reid, realtor, is the best as well. Talented family you can trust. Try them and you will never sorry about it. Aleksandr L

by Aleksandr L from Sandy Springs | Midtown

I was referred to Richard by a friend of mine as a great resource in Atlanta real estate. My friend was not wrong, not only did Richard help me find the perfect home, he helped with the loan process as well. As a first time home buyer, the entire home buying process is extremely intimidating, but Richard was there every step of the way. His slogan should be "Tell 'em Richard sent you" because this guy seems to know everyone in Atlanta, and he helped me find a place that is perfect. Even after the papers were signed he is responsive to all my emails, and is a great resource for any questions I have regarding owning my new home! I couldn't recommend him enough.

by Michael B from Inman Park | Candler Park

Use this guy! Extremely knowledgeable about the local area. Helped us buy 2 properties, so far..... He is very responsive, dedicated, and is always looking out for your best interest!

by Curt N from Vinings

Richard provided excellent service from the beginning. He is very efficient and knowledgable on the area. He kept the process smooth and efficient. I would highly recommend Richard's services to others. Thank you Richard!

by Terria from Decatur

Richard is an outstanding real estate professional. He is knowledgeable about the real estate market and the process of home buying. He has numerous contacts in the industry to facilitate the selection and purchase processes. Richard is a skilled communicator and uses those skills in both listening to client needs as well as communicating those as needed during the negotiation process. We have purchased two properties through Richard and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking an expert.

by Nancye F from Decatur

This is the second time I have Richard as my agent. In both instances he showed knowledge, patients and professionalism. He made me do well on both purchases and showed exceptional patients and access.

by Jason N from Midtown

I provide my very strongest recommendation possible for Richard and would use him again in a heartbeat if the need ever arose. He made the rather arduous process of buying and selling homes rather painless. On the buying side, Richard has extensive knowledge of neighborhoods in Decatur and surrounding metro Atlanta. He listens carefully to his clients' needs and does an remarkable job targeting properties that fulfill the required criteria. He also has great ideas on how to transform the exterior and interior of existing properties to maximize the buyer's enjoyment. He is diligent in checking e-mails and voicemails and returns queries in rapid fashion. On the selling side, Richard had great ideas on how to stage our property to maximize interest from potential buyers. He provided sage advice on handling and deciding among offers and was with us every step of the way through the convoluted closing process. He is truly fantastic. I can't recommend him enough.

by Lenea E from Oakhurst

Richard Reid made a daunting process most enjoyable and very successful. Over a period of many months (my husband and I came into town from the west coast on occasion and made some offers long distance and studied available potential homes on a daily basis via Internet searches and links from Richard), Mr. Reid and his staff served us with professionalism, personal and friendly attention, in depth knowledge and timely response to emails, texts, and phone calls. Since I had to handle the closing alone, Richard and his team patiently guided me through the process. Even after closing on our perfect home, Mr. Reid has been available to answer other questions about the the community and craftsmen. Without a moment's hesitation, I highly recommend Direct Link Realty with the Richard Reid team if you are searching for a condo, townhouse, or home.

by Susan S from Avondale Estates

Richard was just amazing. I was a bit apprehensive about putting my house on the market but Richard guided me every step of the way. We listed and sold the house at the price we wanted in just over a month. Simply Amazing, Jim

by Jim P from Decatur | Sandy Springs

Excellent, trustworthy real estate professional. With Richard as my agent, I have bought and sold property in Decatur and each time the transaction went smoothly due to his expertise. Because Richard deals exclusively with property in the Decatur area and knows the area quite well, his recommendations and advice are right on target. He has an excellent rapport with community business associates and is very prompt with handling inquiries and documents usually within 24 hours. He knows the market very well and works hard to provide great customer service. I have no hesitation whatsoever about recommending Richard Reid with Direct Link Realty for your next real estate move whether buying or selling.

by Wanda C in Decatur

Richard helped me find my 'perfect house' at an amazing price! His knowledge of the area, attention to detail, patience and project management skills helped my purchase proceed flawlessly.If you are looking for help in a complex real estate market, you can be confident that Richard Reid will provide the guidance you need!

by Eugene P in Buckhead

Richard helped us find our first home in the fall of 2011. As first time buyers we had no clue what we were doing and Richard was so wonderfully helpful through out the entire process. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the market and really helped us understand what parts of town has the best value. He was never too busy to show us some properties, answer our endless questions, or meet with us to walk us through some paperwork for the 100th time. He cares so much about understanding what you are looking for and wants to help you find it. Purchasing real estate can be very stressful and Richard always had smile on his face and words of encouragement that made the process so much more enjoyable. Not only did he help us find the perfect house but he negotiated a fantastic deal for us while still being fair to the sellers. He even sent us coupons from home improvement stores to help us fix a few things in our house and friendly reminders about the homestead tax exemption paperwork and things like that. Richard really goes the extra mile for his clients and we wouldn't want to work with anyone else.

by Meghan H from Woodland Hills | Emory Area

Very knowledgeable and meticulous, Richard not only made sure that all issues were covered in detail, but he also anticipated some of the questions we would face and made sound recommendations. We highly recommend his services.

by Emilson S in Midtown

To start with, Richards knows his market. That's priceless. Richard is extremely amicable and has a great personality. You will have a hard time getting him out of balance regardless of what you "throw at him". Our house buying experience was extremely complicated with a lot of twists and turns due to issues with financing. Richard helped us navigate these uncharted waters, and in the end was instrumental in getting the deal completed by ensuring that the seller stays gives us additional time to finalize everything. Many other would give up along the way facing the same set of complicated circumstances.

by Sanin S in Midtown

Richard is the most dedicated real estate broker that I have ever encountered. His knowledge of valuation techniques and his ability to utilize technology to determine values and market properties make him an essential asset to any transaction. He works repeatedly with clients and colleagues because of the trust he builds with them. Richard has shepherded me through at least 5 transactions that have had wonderful results despite the market contraction resulting from the Great Recession. Through our business dealings, Richard has become a lifelong friend.

by Ben C in Druid Hills

Richard helped us buy our current home. There are a lot of agents out there who are good at the social interactions, but who let you down when it comes to the details - not just making the deal go through, but making sure their client's interests are truly served. His local knowledge, technical market analysis skills, and attention to all the little details that make for a smooth and advantageous transaction for his clients set him apart. Richard's skills and professionalism are the reason why you hire an agent in the first place. I won't buy or sell another home without Richard's help.

by Josh C in Decatur

I hired Richard to help me find a house in the Virginia Highlands. He was outstanding. So much so, that I referred him to my parents six months later. He helped them find a town-home in the Sandy Springs area. Richard is smart, diligent, responsive and a good negotiator. A completely different league from the agent I hired in 2000 when I bought my prior house. I'm was a demanding client (I'm an attorney) and he exceeded my expectations. If I ever buy another house he will represent me then as well.
