Celebrate Your Independence Too!

July 4th 1776 is a momentous day in history for our great nation – and so is the day we buy our own home! Owning real estate, especially your own home, is a great way to feel independent and accomplished.

In today’s market, many homeowners really want to make a move, but are finding themselves in a catch 22  – “Do I sell first, or buy first?”. They don’t want to end up stuck owning two homes or worse – none at all.

The more the real estate market turns over – sellers selling & buyers buying – the more our economy benefits. And as John F. Kennedy said, “a rising tide lifts all boats.”

We have been able to develop and successfully implement a program that allows us to guarantee the sale of a property!

Yep, you read that right. We actually guarantee –  in writing – the sale of a home. Obviously a program like this gives sellers great peace of mind. We guarantee, up front and in writing, that if their home does not sell at their price and within their time frame – we will step in and buy it.

The conditions are simple: the seller and Richmond Realty must agree on price and possession date.

Buyers benefit too, because we are able to ensure they get the home they want and back up their purchase with a satisfaction guarantee: if they are not happy with the home, we will sell it for free. This obviously is a win-win for all involved.

This is where you come in.

Your friends, neighbors, work associates and family members who may be considering a move can now do so and celebrate true independence from the fear of getting stuck with two homes or none at all.

As you know Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, incidental to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers. Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following these tragic events.


Who do you know considering buying or selling a home you could refer to our real estate sales team?
Not only will they benefit from our award winning service, but we donate a portion of our income on every home sale to the Wounded Warrior Project.

We want to make it easy to refer your friends, neighbors, associates or family members considering making a move, so here are your options:

  • -You can pass along our business card to them, we have enclosed a couple here for that purpose.
  • -You can go to http://www.BlakeTeamReferrals.com and enter their contact info online or forward the link to who you know considering a move.
  • -Of course you can always call us direct as well at 718-608-4892.


You and your referrals mean more to our team now than ever before. Thank you in advance for thinking of us.
With all our appreciation,

Why We Support The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP)

When we decided to create this program, it did not take us very long to agree on a charity to support. We have a very close family member who bravely fought on the front lines of World War II and was seriously injured; and more recently a close lifelong friend who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom. So this was the natural fit for our organization. This belief was only strengthened when we started to read more about their mission and how they serve their members. WWP serves veterans & service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound incidental to their military service. And with major advancements in battlefield medicine and body armor, more and more service members are surviving severe injuries. In addition to physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat related stress, major depression, and PTSD.

Our team rallies around our annual goal of raising money & donating portions of our income to helping this worthy cause. We are committed to providing outstanding results for both buyers & sellers referred to us by our past clients, friends, and others. Since WWP survives on sponsorships & donations from grateful civilians, we are happy to contribute and proud to support the brave men and women who literally put their lives on the line for our freedom.
