Hi, my name is Rick Bosl and I’m grateful that our paths have crossed. My mission and my purpose is to help people find solutions and realize their goals. I’ve done this my entire career - first, as a management consultant working with Fortune 50 firms and small startup companies; now, as a real estate agent guiding buyers, sellers and investors through complex transactions.
With over $100 million in sales, I’m a seasoned pro and an expert on pricing, negotiation and marketing strategies. There is rarely a situation or problem I cannot handle or haven't seen before. No matter how many deals I do, I never forget that there is a human element involved. Whether it is a first time buyer, putting their entire savings into their purchase or a seller having to part with a life time of memories, I’m always attentive to the emotional and the financial needs of my clients. That is just one reason I have so many repeat clients.

Clients Say It Best !
Rick has helped us buy and sell two condos along the Orange line in Arlington. He knows the market and the buildings inside and out. He's courteous, responsive, resourceful, and gives you honest, helpful feedback. He even helped us sell and close on a condo while we were living abroad. We've recommended Rick to friends and they've had similar positive experiences. We will be using Rick's expertise again when we move back to the DC area.
Highly recommended! I have used Rick on my last two condo buys and sells and my new town home purchase as well. He is very knowledgeable about Northern Virginia as he also lives there as well. He is highly responsive to texts and emails and will walk you through the process one step at a time so you are comfortable with the buying/selling experience.
Rick showed a lot of patience as my buyer's agent, and I never felt rushed. He was willing to invest time in showing me (a first-time buyer) several different kinds of properties while I figured out what I might be interested in buying. Even after I took a self-imposed break of several months from my home search, the moment I was serious about buying, he was almost instantly able to identify for me a home that I happily bought within days of first seeing it (and have been happy with ever since).
Rick is the best Realtor in the DC area. He answers his phone 24/7 and is always looking out for his clients! I was in the market to purchase a condo but had not yet moved to DC when I called Rick. He was very understanding and took videos of the unit that I was most interested in. Thank you Rick so much for the awesome condo! You were fantastic!
Rick Bosl has been my realtor during two closings. It all started with a simple cup of coffee that turned into what is now a 10 year relationship. His website was my initial attraction, but it is supported by his experience and knowledge on both this area and real estate. For me the decision to work was both simple and easy.
Rick is the guy who *really* knows the Orange Line corridor and who you want to use for buying or selling. A canny negotiator who knows when to "hold" and when to compromise. Next time I need a condo in Arlington, I'm going to call Rick!
Rick is Mr. Arlington Condo! I discovered him doing web research back in the hot hot condo days of 2005. Web real estate was still in it's infancy, and he ran a site with vast amounts of accessible information on the county market and properties, as well as blogs and local news on the condo market. In a time when realtors and sellers were superficial and engaging in frenzied speculation, Rick was focused on good data, research and business savvy. After I contacted him, I quickly began to appreciate his character as well. While other realtors struck me as pushy or phony, Rick was patient and thorough. He took me to see just about any property in the area that might suit my needs. He let me form my own opinions while benefiting from his counsel. Eventually, when purchase time came, it went without a hitch. Rick knew how to leverage my credit and other positives to help me score a condo where I wasn't even the high bidder. He impressed on the seller that my job history and credit would smoothly get the seller to the finish line. Six years later, when it was time to sell that unit. Rick was back. He did a great job getting it to show nicely, and bring in a lot of interested people at a relatively slow time in the market. He found me a good buyer that was able to close smoothly and without surprises. Rick is thoughtful, respectful, knowledgeable, loyal, friendly and savvy. I give Rick my unqualified recommendation.
Rick was absolutely terrific with the sale of our condo. Prior to listing it, he walked the condo with us and sent a comprehensive valuation breaking down the bases for the asking price. He then visited with a very effective stager and had photographs taken by a professional photographer. Our condo sold within 10 days of listing at asking price. We couldn't have been more pleased. My wife and I were operating within a limited window to sell the condo since we already had a contract on a house. So selling quickly at asking price was absolutely imperative. Rick is extremely knowledgeable, honest, organized, and efficient. We were concerned about selling the condo in a limited time frame and Rick's straight shooting approach was always a calming influence. We highly recommend him
We have bought 2 condos with Rick's help, looked at buying a third one, and have been renting them out with his support as well. The word that comes to mind is TRUST. Rick is always available. He adapts to your wishes and criteria. He creates spreadsheets including all the information you want plus whatever he knows you are going to need. He organizes visits quickly and always comes well prepared with all the background knowledge that comes with in-depth local experience.He gives very good advice with good reasons. He helps you throughout every step of the process. In one case we were cash buyers, and Rick managed to have us sign the final papers and get the keys 10 days after we first visited the condo! The professionals he recommends are all efficient and helpful. He saves you time and energy, and makes the whole process stress-free. We have been buying homes every couple of years in various countries and we have never had such a positive experience! When it comes to renting out, he is as energetic and successful every time a tenant wishes to move on, and finds good people who are willing and able to pay good prices. I would recommend Rick Bosl enthusiastically to anyone thinking of buying in the Dc area. He knows his market perfectly and he does his job masterfully
