    My husband and I met Dick in 1999 when we were buying our first home. We didn’t have much of a budget & were looking at fixer uppers. He showed us a home other agents refused to & we are so grateful, it ended up being the home we purchased and still live in & love today. He was fantastic – patient & helpful. He helped us negotiate an a-m-a-z-i-n-g price, I recently had our house appraised & it is worth over 6x what we purchased it at.

    Dick later helped my mother-in-law purchase the (much more high-end) house of her dreams on the lake where she lived the rest of her days enjoying a piece of property that fit her lifestyle & hobbies from fishing off her dock, boating, swimming & gardening to lounging & entertaining, it was a great place we all enjoyed!
    I reconnected with Dick on another venture in the fall of 2013 to purchase, yet again, the crappiest house on the block. We had fun with it, Dick did some recon & we planned out our waiting game to try to get it for the price I wanted. Even though it was a low-priced property Dick kept in touch as we strategized, he really kept things moving forward throughout the whole process. It took about a year but the property is now mine & for price that I wanted pay.

    Dick has worked with some of my friends too. He’s been great to work with. It wasn’t even a question for me when I decided to go for my second property, he was my first choice without hesitation. He’s easy to work with, easy to get in touch with, good communicator, very straight forward, no games. What you see is what you get. I highly recommend him.

    I have had the pleasure of knowing, and doing business with ‘Dickie’ for many years. He is now listing one of my properties. He is very knowledgeable, especially the Adirondack area, where he has lived for over 35 years. I have found him to be Trustworthy and Loyal to all his clients, which are probably the main 2 items on anyones agenda when looking for a Real Estate Broker. I would highly recommend ‘Dickie’ to anyone. sincerely,

  • Fred Suchy and Joan Lambert

    We used two other area realtors before contacting Dick. His knowledge and professionalism were far above the standard that had been set previously.
    He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant, our concerns were taken care of, our property was sold for a fair price with no problems.

    We found Dick to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality.

  • Renee Mary Hoover

    My partner and I were so fortunate to come into contact with Dick as we began our search of the Adirondacks for our perfect spot. We started with resale homes, and ended up purchasing 24 acres of land in the High Peaks area. Dick offered us the willingness to show us anything we had an interest in, from a high to a very low price range – his efforts in helping us find the property that worked best for us was always his main objective. He was diligent in obtaining all the necessary information we requested in relationship to some of the properties, and his background and knowledge of the area was very helpful. He began as our real estate agent and in our hearts has become a true friend.

  • Linda Cosby

    We decided to purchase a vacation hone in the Lake Placid/Saranac Lake NY area. Dick was recommended to us by our Daughter and Son In law, as he had shown them property in the past. We did a lot of research and contacted Dick, giving him a list of properties and asked for his suggestions of properties in our price range. We only had a week to see the properties and make a decision. Dick was so helpful, giving us his undivided attention to show us many properties in such a short time period. He was very informative but never pushy. .His knowledge of the area was priceless. We would highly recommend Dick to anyone wanting to buy in this region, not only was he a great agent but now is a friend!

  • Nancy and Michael Bryant

    We have known Dick Sampson for 15 years. During that time he assisted us with four different real estate transactions. His knowledge of the area, his attention to detail, and his negotiating skills made him an invaluable partner in each of our real estate purchases. Dick is the consummate professional and the only agent we would consider working with in the North Country,

  • J Rizzo

    Dick Sampson is, and has been, the best in the real estate business for many years. I have bought and sold through Dick for nearly 20 years now and can attest to his work ethic, skill at negotiating, and honesty. Needless to say, I have become friends with Dick through the years and trust and respect him without reservation. Keep up the good work Dick, and thank you.
