About Rick

Hi! I’m Rick Van Wieren. My family and I moved from San Jose CA to Colorado Springs in 1991 to find a better and more affordable place to raise our kids. Since 1992 I’ve been selling real estate to help others find their own ‘happy place’, and have been with RE/MAX Properties since 1995! We have 5 children (all grown) and 8 grandchildren (and counting!) My wife was a school teacher at the Classical Academy in Academy School District 20 for 17 years, and is now a Literacy specialist New Summit Charter Academy, so we continue to be very in tune with the needs of families of school age children. We have attended New Life Church since 1997, and I really enjoy photography, golfing, hiking and skiing. We continue to view Colorado Springs as the best place in America to live. I am very knowledgeable about school and church options and was just recently elected to the D49 School District Board, the fastest growing school district in Colorado Springs! My team has extensive experience with the military lifestyle and can assist relocating military personnel with their home search for Fort Carson, the Air Force Academy, Peterson AFB, or Schriever AFB. I promise to take good care of your referrals!


Philosophy

– To treat our customers and clients the way we would like to be treated, with courtesy, respect, integrity, care, and sensitive to the stresses of moving.

– Our relationships with our clients and customers are more like life long friendships than individual business transactions.
The key to our future success is taking the best possible care of the clients and customers we already have through the current transaction, as well as all future moves.

– When our clients and customers refer their friends, family and business associates to us, they can have the utmost confidence in the quality of service, regardless of price range.
