About Rich Bassford
Real estate agent Rich Bassford knows a thing or two about reaching success.

An outstanding work ethic comes naturally to Rich, which is clear by his numerous awards. He has been and is currently the #1 volume producing RE/MAX agent in the Quad Cities. He has over 1,400 closed transactions in his career.
Rich has been a long time supporter of Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) donating a portion of every commission check to the charity.

You can view photos and details of the trip on his website www.ToTheGulf.com. In addition to his busy real estate career Rich also loves to spend time with his family and friends, riding his jet ski, fishing, and traveling.
Rich has many goals for the remainder of his career, one of them is to help as many people as possible achieve their dream of home ownership!
There are many qualities and skills that go into an excellent real estate professional; integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing expertise, effective negotiation skills, and a high quality professional network. All of which are hallmarks of how Rich works.
