"extraordinary service"

Dick, Thank you for the extraordinary service and professionalism you provided in the sale of my condo. Your thorough market analysis laid the foundation for properly and fairly pricing my unit and your insight led to a carefully crafted and effective marketing plan. There is no greater measure of your expertise and success as a real estate professional than the sale of my unit that was digitally and virtually listed and then sold during a pandemic that closed most business and travel. But, your service and skill are enhanced by your genuine kindness and concern. And as someone who enjoyed that skill and civility not just to sell my unit, but to have also purchased the unit almost 10 years ago, I think I am in a good position to make that judgement. I wish you and Merrill Thomas all the best and know it is the very best you and the firm have always extended to their clients. It is a standard long set your leader , Roby Politi, and clearly exemplified by your career. Thank you. Sincerely, R. Cook

"Over the top"

Dick Sampson is a true professional who was willing to go above and beyond to find the right home. Dick had great knowledge of the area and helped us find the perfect lake home. he was willing and able to answer any questions and helped us find local experts to do inspections and repairs. Overall, Dick was a fantastic help and made the whole experience fast and easy. I would strongly recommend Dick to anyone looking for a home in the area.

"Working in our best interests"
Renee M H

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.

"Adding value"
Kelly K

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.

"Two time Clients"
Nancy B

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,

"Undivided attention"
Linda C

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! 

"Above the Standard"
Fred S

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
