"Buying and selling a house can be stressful, and I can't imagine doing it with anyone but Richard Wilcox. His strategy and counsel were impeccable over the more than three months during which he served as both our Buyers' and Sellers' Agent. Richard provided the knowledge, experience, and reassurance we needed to buy with confidence in Concord, MA, and to sell our Colonial era home, in Wayland, MA...which we would have greatly undervalued without his expert advice. We cannot say enough about his patience and professionalism. Our entire buying and selling experiences were nearly perfect, and Richard played a very, very large part in that perfection."  -Justin and Samantha Huddleson, Concord, MA



"When it came time to sell my early Colonial home (Wayland's second oldest home that is still standing), a home that I had lived in for more than fifty years, I was nervous about who I should choose to represent me and my beautiful property. Thank goodness I decided to choose Richard Wilcox. His expertise in real estate combined with his calm demeanor, endless patience, and keen skills made him the perfect choice. His counsel along the way was always a blessing. Simply put, Richard is by far the most knowledgeable historic home real estate broker in the area."  -Mary Palangi, Wayland, MA



"It was a pleasure working with Richard Wilcox. Friendly, knowledgeable, and professional, Richard guided us through the many variables and considerations that go into home buying. In our case, we found his expert knowledge of vintage homes both insightful and comforting during the listing of our home and our search for another. Our conversations with him were informative, and he offered us a variety of creative options we hadn't considered. We look forward to working with him again someday."  -Janine Gardner, Middleboro, MA

"We had the opportunity to work with Richard when we wanted to put our home in Princeton on the market.  He had been referred to us by friends and we will happily refer him to anyone wanting to sell their house.  Richard was very knowledgeable of the housing market and provided excellent advice at each stage of the selling process.  He was extremely responsive, always available to answer our questions, no matter what it was that we needed input on.  We all know how stressful it can be to sell your home.  We felt Richard was with us every step of the way.  We knew we could trust him and in the end we found the perfect buyers for our home.  Simply put, it was a pleasure  to work with Richard!"  -Bill King and Anette Wolf, Shrewsbury, MA

“Richard Wilcox was our salesperson when we decided to sell Amy’s childhood home in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.  The house was an 1800 farmhouse that had been significantly rehabilitated to its original condition. Given that fact that we did not modernize the antique property, we had a difficult time selling the property on our own. I have extensive experience selling my own properties and also worked as an agent for a local brokerage. With this experience, I thought that I could successfully market the property. When we had no luck, we decided to hire Richard Wilcox. We hired Richard and were impressed with his dedication, knowledge and creativity. After many months of Richard’s patience and tenacity, Richard found us a viable customer and we sold the property quickly and without any loose ends or ill will between any of the parties. I have no doubt that Richard will find success as the leader of his new company, Distinctly New England. We would recommend him without reservation.”  -Tony and Amy Grossi, Sturbridge, MA

"We were thrilled to have Richard Wilcox as our Realtor when both buying and selling our home.  He responded very quickly to every email, text and phone call, gave us great advice, and got us a solid offer in just a few weeks.  He works VERY hard for his clients and best of all, gets results!  You won't go wrong with Richard as your Realtor and friend for life!  We highly recommend Richard to all our friends!"  -Michael and Lisa Abate, Providence, RI

"Working with Richard was a great experience.  In fact, we spent more time talking with him (as the seller's agent) than we did our own realtor.  He proved himself to be very knowledgeable about antique houses, patient and accessible, going way beyond what we ever would have expected.  When/if it comes time to sell our antique farm, there is no question that we'll be using Richard as our broker.  Highly recommended!"  -Benjamin and Ginger Toll, Princeton, MA

“In 2015 Richard Wilcox assisted us in selling our home of 50 years in Brimfield, MA.  We enjoyed working with Richard every step of the way.  We found him to be very professional, knowledgeable, competent, very attentive to details and always treated us with the utmost respect.  He was always prompt at every appointment, very friendly and always very well prepared.  Our home, a 1793 retrofitted farm house sitting on 28 acres, sold within six months. We definitely recommend him highly with no reservations.” -Don and Pam Moriarty, Brimfield, MA

"My wife and I were planning on selling our antique house that we had lived in for 30 years. A neighbor recommended a real estate agent who came in and said it had a value in the low to mid $300Ks. She did not even walk around or look at the one acre well landscaped yard. We decided to seek a second opinion. Richard Wilcox came in as the second realtor. He immediately noticed unique features in our home that added value plus major upgrades that we had done. He was also very much focused on our thoughts and hopes. At the end of our initial meeting he said that he would do some research and think it over. He called the next day and said he felt the true value was in the mid $400Ks. We hired Richard and the house sold the first day for what we wanted. Richard was present at the inspections and the appraisal, protecting our interests and helping with of all the stress that goes on when selling a house. I highly recommend Richard." -Dave Brunell, Upton, MA

"During the Spring and summer of 2018 we had the pleasure of having an excellent experience of selling our home with Richard Wilcox. A successful realtor is personable, knowledgeable and is willing to do that extra that makes the difference to both the seller and the buyer.  We know and have experienced Richard Wilcox to be that kind of person.  He was always supportive and positive when things didn't move along as fast as we wanted them to, saying: 'just be patient, we'll find the right buyer for your home'...and he did. Richard's positive attitude made the entire process much easier. We enjoyed working with him, we thought of him as an old friend." -Richard and Karen Denniston, Brimfield, MA
