Greenway Properties



I have been blessed to work with great people and families over the years helping them find their new homes. I strive to make the buying and selling process smooth, enjoyable and hassle free. In today’s market that can be a struggle but my attention to detail and care for my clients allows me to make every transaction successful. Read below to hear what my clients have to say:

Dear Rich,Words are not enough to express how much we appreciate all you’ve done to get us in our home for Christmas. You are an awesome professional and, even more, a better person.”

Rich and Cindy C., Pollock Pines CA

“We can’t thank Rich enough for helping us realize our dream of owning a home in the Bay Area. With the increasingly challenging lending environment, and little money to put down, Rich guided us through our options and helped us find a loan, and most importantly, a beautiful home, all within our budget.

With a seemingly endless reserves of patience, he calmly and confidently managed the process for us so there were no surprises (even for us as first-time home buyers). We found his advice extremely valuable, and appreciated his candidness. Yet he always left the decisions up to us and never applied pressure or the “hard sell”.

I continue to recommend Rich to ALL of my friends and family, and to anyone who is considering buying or selling their home. Thanks again Rich!”

Rich Curtis helped us find our home in Nevada City that is our retirement home. He made us feel like we were his family and gave us first class service by communicating and understanding our needs as an older couple. He never lacked in any area of the process until we had the keys and the transaction was complete.  He is knowledgeable, professional, caring and considerate, and was always patient and explained each step to us so we understood and were comfortable with the process. His clients come first attitude and friendly personality made him special to us, and we really became attached to him and missed him when it was over.  He is worth the 5 star rating and more in our book and we highly recommended Rich at Greenway Properties you want buying or selling your home a good experience.

“When I first started thinking about buying my first house, I wasn’t sure if anyone would take me seriously. I wondered whether I was truly ready for that kind of responsibility. So I was surprised when people responded that they thought it was a great idea. But still, amidst encouragement, I was very nervous.

I’ve known Rich Curtis for quite some time now. We worked together as river guides before he became a realtor. On the river, he was always the kind of guide people looked to when fears needed easing, or when confidence was subsiding. He could bring a smile to a nervous guest’s face with a quick joke, and exuded a calm confidence that was somehow infectious.
It was easy, then, for me to choose Rich as my Realtor. I knew he would display the same attention to detail as he did as a guide, along with bringing in that comforting confidence and sense of humor to what can sometimes be a nerve-wracking process. Our road to my first home was a long one starting with a bank attempting to sell us a foreclosed house that they never owned in the first place! Through it all, Rich stuck by my family diligently and calmly ironing out every bump we came upon, until I finally found the place I am sitting in today. And I could not be happier with our eventual purchase. The house is perfect!

I can’t imagine having navigated the complex and, in our case, sometimes frustrating road to home-ownership without Rich’s patient and knowledgeable guidance. I would whole-heartedly recommend his services to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a home!”

“Buying a house for the first time is a big deal, and when the time is right and you find the right home you want to have people around you who are going to help make the process as easy as possible. Rich Curtis was that person for us. We looked for a home for almost a year, and as many homes as we asked to see and as many questions as we had, Rich was always there to support us. He was truly our guide through the process and was able to be a voice for us during negotiations. I highly recommend Rich Curtis to anyone looking for a home. “

“Being a first time home buyer we contacted Rich and he did an amazing job for us. Rich is a very considerate realtor to work with. After hearing horror stories from many of my friends about the Realtors that they worked with, I was relieved at how easy Rich made the home buying process. He spent countless hours with us taking to every house in every neighborhood that we were interested in and putting up with our indecisiveness as well.

His knowledge is incredible and his willingness to work with you as a buyer is unmatched. Even in the short sale market, Rich took the time to keep us posted consistently through the long process and was a key figure in getting us the house that we really wanted when many other realtors would have tried to convince us to walk away. After a year, I still recommend Rich to anyone I know that is looking for a house.

If you want a truly honest Realtor who treats you more like a friend than just another client, then you have to go with Rich from Greenway Properties.Thanks again for all of your help.”

“After searching for literally years and working with a number of different agents we were so happy to find Rich at Greenway. What made him different was his down-to-earth vibe, clear sense of integrity, and genuinely caring attitude. We were on a major budget–and very very nervous to commit to such a big purchase. Rich never tried to “upsell” us, or made us feel like we were wasting his time with a crappy commission on a cheap house. And he put up with all the dithering and doubts with compassion and class.

Also gotta give him some props for dealing with us when he had a vacation planned–he was leaving right as we were committing to the deal. He set us up with a great substitute while he was gone, and then checked in from his vacation regularly even though he knew we were in good hands. As soon as he got back he was right back on top of things and guided us through the financial and inspection wrangling that comes along with a foreclosure.

We started working with Rich because we’d heard great things about him from friends and friends of friends and we weren’t disappointed. He helped us get a great deal and he’s a cool person–you’ll want to go have a beer with him after the deal is sealed.”

Malina D., Placerville Ca


“Rich Curtis helped us through the process of buying our first home several years ago; I’ve never met anyone so willing to go above and beyond to help a first-time home buyer through the process of not just searching for a new home, but learning about the ins and outs of the deal. He walked us through every step of mortgages, escrow, financing, and the emotional roller coaster that comes with that experience. He also put his experience in home energy and environmental evaluations to good use, educating us on the best way to save on bills and keep our air quality safe from toxins.

In full disclosure, Rich has become a great friend to our family, so we may be a bit biased. But I’ll stake my own name on this: Rich is somebody I trust to handle to most delicate details of any realty transaction, and I continue to wholeheartedly recommend him to my closest friends.”
