Bob Richards, REALTOR®
SRES, CRS, GRI, ABR, E-Pro, Short Sale, Foreclosure
Since 1992, Bob Richards has been a Realtor serving the Greater St. George / Washington County areas. In May of 2021, he celebrated closing on his 5000th home sale which very few agents ever achieve in their careers.
Bob is passionate about real estate because every day there's something new. It's never the same. He loves the variety of people he serves, their backgrounds, families, careers, and listens intently to help them reach their dream of homeownership for the first time or even the last time.
Bob's motto "CONSIDER IT DONE" is his way of living. His "one up" level of service surpasses any other Realtor in southern Utah and with an 88% referral and past client history, he obviously makes 100% certain his clients are treated like VIP's no matter what or when they purchased or sold their home, Lot, condo, townhome, vacation rental, etc.
Two of the legacy landmarks that Bob brokered in his career was the I-15 / St. George Blvd exit which currently houses companies such as Staples, Chuck-A-Rama, Red Lobster and Chili's just to name a few. He also brokered the sale of property on the I-15 Bluff Street interchange where Texaco, Marriott Fairfield Inn and Jack In the Box exists.
The sale or purchase of real estate is not saying “here’s the kitchen.” It’s one of the most vital and largest monetary events in the consumers lives. Bob has been locally and nationally recognized as one of the Top Realtors in production, closed sales, and has been in the Top 5 of ALL Realtor production EVERY YEAR since he started in 1992. He’s a Hall of Fame, Lifetime Achievement, International Corporate Culture award recipient and holds many real estate industry designations ensuring you are educated with honest, current, detailed and accurate information so you can make informed decisions. Why put such an important decision that will forever impact your financial portfolio with someone who doesn’t have the depth, experience and know how that Bob offers as a seasoned veteran in the real estate industry recognized globally.
Another national recognition for Bob is that he’s an ELP for Dave Ramsey. Dave’s fans can reach out to Bob anytime and be properly educated to make sound financial decisions and become financially free.
Working with Buyers and Sellers is what Bob loves to do. He's a problem solver, marketing genius, 12 hour/day agent who strives to ALWAYS exceed the expectations of those he comes in contact with. You're not treated as a number. You're treated, cared for and counseled in a way a trusted family member or mentor would offer from contract to Closing.
When time permits, Bob plays golf, spends some decompress time on his houseboat at Lake Powell, cabin in Pine Valley, reading, as well as being is an avid car collector. He loves being "Papa Bob" to his grandchildren and is the proud father of two children who are in their 30's and bring such joy and happiness to Bob's life.
So, just remember that for ALL of your southern Utah real estate needs, just call, text or email Bob and "CONSIDER IT DONE!!"

My husband and I used Bob Richards & Associates to sell our home is Bloomington several years ago. He was very objective about our home and ready to make suggestions about staging and repairs. He felt that was unnecessary in our case. We expected it to take at least a year to sell, because of extensive and costly remodeling. Another realtor had told us that our home was very hard to price, because there were not really any homes to compare it with. We had remodeled the kitchen and master bathroom to bring the home to a higher standard than the late 70s original version. Anyway, it was fairly old, but updated so the other realtor was uncertain how to proceed. Bob priced our home at the price he thought it would sell. The home sold within 3 months, and we received close to our asking price. Bob was disappointed that it took that long, but we were satisfied with the outcome. The best part of our experience with Bob Richards and his team is the impeccable integrity that he has displayed throughout all our associations over the years.

We purchased our home 20 years ago. We moved from Salt Lake City to Saint George. Bob Richards was recommended to us by the realtor who sold our home.We are very fortunate to have found Bob Richards. He was very pleasant and helpful. He showed us lovely homes in our price range in nice neighborhoods.He worked with a private seller to accommodate us since the house we eventually chose was FOR SALE by owner. He negotiated 10% below the list price.Bob offers fun and valuable promotions several times a year. We have received free smoke alarm batteries, free pies, Parade of Home tickets, etc. He also sends Birthday and Holiday greetings. We went to a really fun party arranged by Bob for his clients. He bought out the movie theater and invited us to a free wonderful first-run production. He had prize drawings and treats for all. It was lots of fun and beyond generous.We will definitely ask for Bob’s services when we consider a move. However, we are so happy with the wonderful home he found us, we may never wish to leave. You can’t go better than Bob Richards.

Our first interaction with Bob Richards & Associates was when Bob helped us find our current home. HIs focus on listening to us and then showing us homes that met our desires paid off with a home we have been happy with for 14 years. His business focus of “Consider It Done” became apparent the first day we moved into our home. We had a water pipe leak and Bob brought large fans and helped us dry out the room and then paid for a night at a local motel to let the carpet dry. Since that time Bob’s realty business has continued to stay in touch with us through services such as information and guidance on property tax assessments and 6 month reminders to change batteries in our smoke alarms and even providing the batteries! We have also been guests to annual free movie days and recipients of Thanksgiving pies. We have worked with numerous other realty companies over our lifetimes but have always been forgotten after the property sale. Bob and his associates continue to make us feel like a part of his realty family. We have referred clients to Bob and when the time comes that we need a professional realtor, Bob Richards & Associates will be the company that we call.

Overall we had an excellent experience working with Bob and his team. We would recommend them to anyone wanting to get their home sold. They did a remarkable job getting qualified buyer’s into our home. We had 4 offers in less than 48 hours. They were great.

i was nervous at first about the timeline given, the amount of money we had to put in - but we listened and sold our house within the first week of listing it. Could not have been happier!! Our buying agent was knowledgeable, helpful and full of ideas, suggestions and was very helpful at each of the homes we looked at.
