I have had the pleasure to work with Rick for the past several years and have gotten to know him personally as well as professionally. Rick has a wonderful understanding of his business but above and beyond that he understands people. Rick is a great manager!! He motivates his agents day in and day out, week after week. He is there for them anytime they need him. He conveys a level of knowledge second to none in his field. He has walked the walk! That, in my opinion, makes Rick the great manager that he is. Working with him over the years has been great. I not only have a great client and referral partner but also feel as though I have a great friend in Rick Colburn.

-Dan Bitza, ASR at Colonial Life

 

I've had the pleasure of working with Rick Colburn in different capacities over the course of several years, beginning around 1997 when he and I were licensed in the state of Missouri to practice real estate. Starting with Gundaker Realtors, Rick and I went through the basic training program of "Rookies", learning the art of cultivating prospects and negotiating for the benefit of our clients. He was helpful then in supporting myself, as well as other new agents, in all those endeavors that made us successful. 


Rick left Gundaker, now Coldwell Banker Gundaker, in 2001, to implement the success of a new company, Prudential Select Properties. I joined that emerging real estate brokerage in 2003 and once again had the pleasure of working side by side with Rick, training new agents on the electronic resources and products available to us through corporate technology. Now in the role of co-manager of our Prudential Select Properties office, St Charles County location, Rick serves as both a mentor and a co-worker to me on my career path as Realtor. 

Rick is tenacious and forthright in his ability to share information and knowledge with the agents in my office. I've seen him speak effectively to groups of people, large and small, both Realtors and to the public, and he possesses an innate talent for alluring his audience to listen and absorb the information he is trying to impart. Entertaining and articulate, he is a talented speaker. There is still occassion, after years of being in the industry, for me to gain useful information that I can incorporate into my business plan from Rick. "Every day is school" is something you'll regularly hear from him, and it's true!

-Teresa Ghioto Wernimont, Realtor/Broker/Branch Manager at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties

 

Rick has a very upbeat management style. He's willing to listen when needed and eager to help you along the way.
