     We highly recommend Mr. Richard DeCeglie who sold our investment property, which had been tenant-occupied for many years.  He came highly recommended and did not disappoint.

      Rich was easy to work with; he was responsive, transparent and trustworthy.  Although we were working from a distance, we felt supported. Our point of view was always considered and any concerns addressed.  Rich was great to work with and we would certainly partner with him again.  Sincerely, The Reids

 Hello Richard,

 I would like to take a moment to say thank you. Thank you for your good help, thank you for being such a gentleman, thank you for your professional service and thank you for your kindness.

This past January, my tenant wanted to buy our house. You took a weekend your off your time to help him with a Watson Mortgage person, you were trying to help him get a. Finally, my tenant couldn’t pass the loan process. But we both appreciated your kind help.
Then my tenant moved out in July, I lived away from house, and you helped me inspect the house, when I came to view the home, we finally met! In the meantime, I changed my mind, I wanted to live in this home instead of selling it. You were kind enough not to charge me any fees, and happily wished me good luck ! ! 
I am blessed, I am glad to have met you. A gentleman makes our world a happier, warmer and bright place to live. May God bless you, with a good career and good health.

 Thank you again.

 Dear Rich,

Thank you for helping us find our perfect second-home in Palm Coast. Please feel free to use me and Jane as referrals for your business.  Although we initially contacted you about one of your listings, we were very impressed with how you listened to us and helped us find a different home which better meets our needs.

 Our experience working with you was very positive for a few reasons listed below.

·         You were 100% available for us when we needed to talk

·         You are very honest and candid about the entire buying and selling process

·         When you couldn't answer a question, you put us in touch with people who could

·         You seamlessly worked with our title company, the seller's agent and our attorney's office which made buying a Florida property from New Jersey seem very easy.

Thank you again for your ongoing support as we move into our new home in the coming months.  We also look forward to your friendship as neighbors in the years to come.

When I mentioned to a friend that I was going to sell my hone she recommended Richard DeCeglie from Watson Realty. I called Richard and he came to my home, we came to a mutual agreement on price.   I signed all papers and before I knew it my home sold. Richard handled everything in a professional manner as he has been a Realtor for over 30 years. Richard made everything so easy for me as I unexpectedly ended up with emergency surgery. He is a true gentleman with a great personality, easy to talk to and was extremely sensitive to my needs.

If you are looking for a Realtor who is on your side, look no further than Richard DeCeglie.  in May, 2023, we listed a house with him in Palm Coast and had a contract from the first person who saw the house.  Richard is a man of integrity, was forthright and honest and helped us price the house in a very fair manner.  His knowledge of the market is extensive as he has practiced in Palm Coast for many years.  He advised us on what to update or not based on his experience and we found his guidance to be most helpful.  We felt confident in his knowledge and abilities and appreciated his professionalism and sense of humor!  He helped to guide us as we evaluated the offer and in the end, we got what we wanted on the price, and our buyer got a great property!  


Richard was selected out of all the realtors we looked at because of the many client recommendations.  I must say, he totally lived up to each one and I would not hesitate at all to use his services again if they are ever needed.

Dear Rich, 

We just wanted to thank you so much for handling the sale of our home on Pinelark Lane. It could not have gone smoother. We took your advice regarding staging the home (without cost) and your wisdom on setting the sale price. 

It was amazing, within 1 weekend we had 8 or 9 prospective buyers and by Monday had two offers well above the listing price. The closing was less than a month after the sale, and was in fact a week early.  You handled all of the details of the sale, and it was a “stress-free” experience. 

We absolutely will contact you again if we decide to sell again and recommend you to any of our friends who might sell their home. 

All the best,

Sheri & John Muth

If you are planning on selling your home, you could not find a better real estate agent than Richard J. DeCegile,CRS.

Because my husband was ill, I had to make all the decisions. Right from the beginning, I felt I could trust Rich. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the real estate market. He always answered any concerns I had. He kept me well informed during the whole process of the sale and recommended people to help ready the house for selling. He truly cares about the people he is representing. What could have been a very stressful situation was made easier, because of Rich’s relaxed and caring manner.

If we are in need of a real estate agent, in the future, Rich would definitely be our choice.

 We are so pleased, that, our friends recommended you and Your Company, Watson Realty.

We agreed to sell the House, in an " AS IS", condition. We found that Our Roof’s 30-year life, was hindering, our ability to Move a Sale! You found a buyer, that wanted the House, but not the 30-year-old roof. You, negotiated, the price to sell the House. We hope the Buyer, will be as Happy, as We were after 30 Years. Your ability, to negotiate the difficult situation, between, the Buyer and Seller was outstanding!

We are so happy to have made, a new Friend, as well as a Broker! We will Highly recommend, You and Your Company, to any Seller!!

I, reluctantly, chose to sell my family home. I met Rich DeCeglie, explained my concerns and time constraints to him and immediately felt he understood. I knew at that point I had met the agent I wanted to work with. He offered advice and devised a way to work around my concerns, leaving me more comfortable with my decision. During the process he kept me informed and always returned my calls in a timely manner. His vast knowledge of the Palm Coast market and his extensive contacts and marketing strategies resulted in the house having a contract on it within forty-eight hours. Rich was friendly, but professional and I am convinced his wide expanse of contacts, his personality, and his work ethic allowed the house to sell so quickly. I would highly recommend anyone needing the services of a realtor to contact Rich. I know he’ll be the first person I’ll call in the future!

 Dear Rich: 

 There are no words sufficient enough to convey our gratitude for your care and attention over the past year. During times of uncertainty, you gently guided my Mom and our family through the sale of not one, not two, but three properties there in the Palm Coast/Daytona area.

 Even before we decided to put each property on the market, you took the time to explain the process from pricing to timing to property preparation. Recommendations were made, and you even connected us with other professionals such as handymen and landscapers who also did excellent work. When the properties finally went on the market, you guided us through negotiations with professionalism. Your years of experience, expertise and extensive knowledge of the market were evident and resulted in the successful sale of all three properties. And all in timely manners! Your patience and reassurance were priceless!

 Most of all, we were very touched by your genuine caring and empathy. You went above and beyond, fielding our questions during off hours and always being so understanding, especially in times of “panic mode.” Your phone calls and text messages to me here in New York to keep me updated every step of the way were particularly appreciated, and your honesty will always be remembered. 

 Mom often told the story of how you helped her cousin with the sale of land there in Palm Coast years ago, maybe 20+ years. I never understood how your name remained in her memory all these years. Now I do! You have left a lasting impression on our entire family, and we will be forever grateful. We will definitely be referring you to friends and family in the future!

 Be well and stay safe,

Re: 26 Eagle Harbor Trl 

I just wanted to take this time to say how wonderful Rich DeCeglie and his team were during the sale of my mom’s house.   This Fall, after 21 years in Palm Coast, she decided it was time for her to move back home to Philly.  We had no idea where to start and who to contact but after talking with friends for referrals, we decided to call Rich. 

Rich took the time to explain every step to my mom while keeping me in the loop at the same time.   With Rich’s years of experience and expertise, my mom’s house sold within an hour of being put up on the market!  From the beginning of our relationship with Rich to signing the closing documents, we could not have asked for a better experience!  


Mom added on Jan 22, 2021-
Dear Rich, From the moment we first spoke I felt confident that I was in the right hands for this bittersweet experience.  I cannot thank you enough for all the help you gave me and my daughters. You were with us 100%.
You made this stressful experience bearable, always telling me to call you if I needed to talk and also that I was not in this alone.   Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Re: 1 Bill Ct. Palm Coast FL
I would like to express my appreciation to Richard DeCeglie, and all the member of the Watson Realty Corp. for their very thorough and professional handing of the sale of my property in Palm Coast. Richard came thoroughly prepared at our first meeting. We discussed the good points and negative point about the house and property. He made some very helpful suggestions about how to make the property more appealing to a potential buyer, without spending an inordinate amount of money. His analysis of where the house would sell turned out to be right on the money. Richard was very good at keeping me informed during the listing process, and his advice was invaluable as we entered into negotiations. The house was very well marketed, so as to property reach the target buyers. I would highly recommend Richard to anyone selling their home.

When it came time to put together the closing paperwork, the people at Watson Title were fantastic. Patty, Mary and everyone else who had a part in putting together the final documents were a pleasure to deal with, as well as being extremely thorough and knowledgeable. I cannot think of any way in which the whole selling experience could have been improved, and I have over the year been involved in many real estate transactions. Should I have occasion to sell property in Florida at any future point, I would immediately contact Richard again, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends and acquaintances.

Dear Prospective Homeowners:

It is our pleasure to recommend Richard J. DeCeglie as a real estate agent.  Our retirement plans changed, and we decided to sell our Palm Coast waterfront lot.

Rich has for years sent us a copy of his Palm Coast newsletter, which we really appreciated since it kept us up to date on our property and a long-held dream of retiring to Palm Coast. So, it was a simple choice to send him an email inquiry as to the market value of our “sailboat country” lot. He responded with an extensive package of information with the sale or listing price of other similar lots. Based on this, he provided his recommended market evaluation. The lot finally sold even during the Corona virus pandemic.

Again, we are pleased to recommend Rich to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Palm Coast area.

To whom it may concern:

I was put into contact with Richard De Ceglie through my dealings with Watson Property Management. My husband and I spoke with Richard and felt confident in his knowledge of the real estate market to list our condominium unit with him for sale.

Over the time it took from the beginning of listing our unit to the final date of possession, Richard was very helpful, informative, and professional and gave us great ease in the whole selling process. Being from out of country, Richard was very good with communicating every aspect of the selling and closing processes with us. He made sure to not only give us his opinion but ask what we wanted to do and respected whatever decision we decided to go ahead with.

I would have no hesitation, in recommending Richard or using his services should I ever need a real estate agent in Florida again.

Dear Rich,

Thank you for your professional guidance in the sale of my mother’s saltwater canal home at 7 Cheyenne Court in Palm Coast. After mom’s sudden passing, I became the owner of her home as well as the executor of her estate. As a resident of Oregon, I relied on online reviews to select a real estate agent to handle the sale of the home. The consistently excellent reviews you received from satisfied clients convinced me to contact you.

You met with my sister and me shortly after I arrived in Florida. You presented a market analysis with data on comparable home sales in the neighborhood. Mom’s home had some deferred maintenance issues and was cosmetically dated. Thanks to your extensive knowledge of the Palm Coast real estate market, you identified the likely buyer as an investor. You suggested a listing price that would attract that type of buyer and recommended selling the home in “as-is” condition.

With your support, my sister and I packed up mom’s possessions and prepared the home for sale during the month after her passing. You recommended contractors to make essential repairs and renovate the neglected landscaping. You also recommended moving companies to remove furniture from the home after the sale. Being from out of town, I found these recommendations extremely helpful. The businesses you recommended were reliable, reasonably priced, and did excellent work.

Your network of contacts in the local real estate community led to an incredibly quick sale of the home. Within a few hours of the listing appearing online, even before the listing photos were posted, two people expressed an interest in viewing the home. Within two days, a buyer made a solid full-price offer! The sale closed smoothly about six weeks after I accepted the offer.

As a postscript, I recently learned that mom’s home has been completely remodeled and is now being offered for rent. As you predicted, the new owner is an investor who saw the potential in mom’s home and made it attractive again. My sister and I are very happy with the final outcome of the sale.

Having bought and sold several homes of my own in the Pacific Northwest over the past 10 years, I can unequivocally say you’re the best real estate agent I’ve ever worked with. Your constant availability, excellent communication skills, friendly and honest personality, ability to deliver on promises, deep knowledge of the Palm Coast market, and extensive referral list of contractors and service providers sets you apart from the typical agent. I would highly recommend you to anyone wishing to buy or sell property in Palm Coast.

To whom It May Concern:

This is an unequivocally positive recommendation for the services of our selling real estate agent Richard J. DeCeglie of Watson Realty in Palm Coast. Rich, as he is known, came to my attention following the strong recommendation of a friend who also is satisfied client. He was the standout among the several agents interviews and he did not disappoint, since with his guidance my property was sold, and the deal closed within a month of listing.

This result was largely due to the professionalism of Rich, with his accomplished ways of portraying the house and property in the most favorable manner, his attention to detail, and his responsiveness to any concerns of mine during the entire process, all combining to produce a positive experience.

Please consider using Rich DeCeglie, you won’t find better.

Sincerely yours,

Dear Sir,


We are very pleased with Richard DeCeglie and his effectiveness in the sale of our home. We were very impressed with the research and analysis he had done on the local market and similar homes in the neighborhood and his guidance in setting the asking price and the marketing of the home.


Thanks to Richard, the Watson Realty team and Watson Title Company the whole process from listing to close was "unheard of" only 3 1/2 weeks. The process from contract to closing was an "unheard of" only one week. Of course this was an extraordinary feat and lots of pieces had to fall into place to make it happen, but it took the competence and experience of Richard and the Watson team to make it possible. "Time is money" for all of us and professional efficiency made for a "win-win" for all concerned with this relationship.

Dear Rich,

Finally, the closing is completed, and I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all your attention to this process during the showing, sale and move out of my condo in Woodhaven.

Selling this property after 30 years of ownership by my family was a bit emotional. Doing it from out of town added a level of stress and concern. Your management and attention to all the details make a great difference. I especially appreciated your regard for my needs, your help in dealing with the association management company, and your ability to provide a wonderful moving partner to help me get everything moved out of the condo in a timely and professional way.

You helped me find this place 30 years ago, so it was only fitting that you handle the sale today,but you are truly a trusted and highly ethical realtor. Everything went so smoothly with Watson’s processes; I can honestly say this was the easiest and most worry-free property sale I have ever had. If I ever come back to Palm Coast, I will certainly return to you for my next home adventure.

Many thanks for your solid advice and genuine partnership.

Best Regards,
Debra Mercaldo

     Richard DeCeglie has been the ideal of professionalism in a real estate consultant. I was shocked at how quickly he was able to list my house and how quickly it was sold, once he did.- only a couple of days! He remained available for questions at any time and always kept me updated on the status of the house.

     Throughout the sale and closing of my house, Richard DeCeglie was expedient, efficient, courteous and communicative in his work. I would certainly recommend him to any friends of mine looking to sell their houses. This process was made simpler and less stressful than I’d feared it would be… thanks to his expertise.

 Dear Rich,

Just a note to thank you wholeheartedly for the excellent work on my home sale. I appreciate the fact that I did not have to stay in the house alone for a long period of time and knowing the good service in selling and buying other property. I immediately thought to call on you in the present situation. I am well pleased with my ‘independent’ living situation and doing well.

Thanks again.

   Thank you for your knowledge and professionalism. My wife's late Alzheimer's and the 8 screws and titanium plate in my neck has made it impossible for us to go to Florida for an out of state land sale.

   Thank you for the integrity of the complete process. A job well done.  The information of current vacant lot offerings, selling prices and time on the market was most helpful.

   Again, Thank You.

In the past you have sold two houses for me: due to family circumstances I had to remove my present house from the “For Sale” listing.


I will not forget how good you were to take time to keep in touch and offer your help.


Again, many thanks,

I treasure the opportunity to write this brief note for two purposes: one is to show my appreciation of Richard DeCeglie for his assistance on my real estate needs in recent years-He has sold four pieces of my Palm Coast lots. Another is to recommend him for whoever needs a professional help in dealing with buy/sell properties in Palm Coast, Florida.
I never met Richard in person although I have known him for a dozen of years. I have received and enjoyed reading his monthly newsletters for fifteen years more-or-lessly. Through reading these impressive letters with his chosen content I get to know him as a very knowledgeable, well organized real estate broker of high integrity!! He also has a good sense of humor!!!!
Long before I had the desire to sell my property in Palm Coast I have decided he would be my choice of a broker. One after another properties, he handled the sales and closings super professionally, clear, precise and easy! No hassle! We talked on the phone a lot. He is always cordial, friendly and very efficient! Through all these dealings I also found him as an honest and client-caring professional.
I have no reservation in recommending him to my family and/ or friends as a real estate professional !!!!

God bless!

Re: Thank you!

Dear Rich,

On Behalf of my dad and our family, we want to thank you for the wonderful service you gave us during the process of listing and selling my dad’s home in Palm Coast Fl. As you know, with two of my sisters living in Minnesota, one in Georgia and myself in Virginia, managing the process of selling a home thousands of miles away is daunting. You were highly recommended by my dad who brought the home with your assistance 20 years ago, and now that he is no longer able to maintain the property, you were equally as helpful on the other end of the transaction as sellers.

You not only gave us helpful recommendations about the types of repairs and cleaning that we should do before listing the house, but you sold the house very quickly. We couldn’t have been more surprised to receive two offers at or above list price within 48 hours of putting it on the market. It’s hard to believe that we were able to close on the house only 6 weeks after listing.

Thank-you very much for the service you have given to our family over the years. We wish you continued success in the future.

Thank you Rich!


Bill & Daniele Todd July 20 2018


Bill and I were very impressed by the way you handled the sale of our house. 

You made it very "easy" for us by taking care of all the details. 
We did appreciate you keeping us informed of the visits and comments of all the potential buyers.
Daniele had no idea  the sale of the house and  paper work could be done in barely two months. Very impressive !.

We are very grateful for the efficient way you took care of everything.

I am ashamed this letter is later than I had expected, but I was determined to hide from all the unpacked boxes to give you a huge Thank-You!

I’m not sure how fast you have sold your other homes, but ours is a miracle for sure. A real estate dealer saw it while you were printing the pictures! Wow, you have been a great Realtor plus a great new friend to us. You kept us informed on all things. Even after the sale of our home.

I am so thankful because at the time you were dealing with the loss of your mother too. She is looking down from heaven and smiling because of her son.

We pray for others to choose you as their real estate consultant.

Thank you again and know you have a friend and friends in Upstate NY.

Hi Rich,

I am writing to express my pleasure with real estate agent Richard DeCeglie, who represented us in two sales of my father homes after he passed away. Richard has handled all of my father’s real estate holdings over the years. He also facilitated the process as we do not live in Florida.

Richard guided us through the entire process, from listing, reviewing comps, suggesting sale prices, and advising us regarding any repairs. Once listed his knowledge of the market had it sold within a couple of weeks. We credit Richard with a smooth, stress-free home-selling experience during a very stressful period of time in our lives.

We do own a home in Palm Coast and will definitely seek him out when we are looking to sell or buy in the future.

To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Richard and his expertise and we recommend him to everyone.

Letter of Recommendation:

I met Rich DeCeglie in June of 2004 after my mother passed away and my family and I needed a valuation of her home in Palm Coast completed for her estate. I found Rich to be very knowledgeable and helpful in his preparation of the report he prepared.

The property remained in our family with my two brother, sister and I retaining ownership. In 2014, my oldest brother passed away and I again contacted Rich requesting a valuation. Both in 2004 and 2014 Rich told my siblings and I , should we ever decide to sell the property he should be happy to assist us.

My mother’s home remained in our family until October of 2017. Between 2014 and 2017 the house was not maintained as well as it should have due to financial burdens. All Three of the owners of the property agreed it was time to put the house up for sale.

Rich came to the house and did a thorough walk through the property and guided us as to what needed to be done to ready the house for sale. Rich was extremely helpful and provided names and contact information of qualified individual s who were able to assist us. Rich discussed with us his marketing strategy for the sale. Within 24 hours of the property being placed on the multiple listing, the house was shown four times and wih9n that 24 –hour timeframe we received a full price offer on the home.

Our transaction was a little complex due to the way title was held and the death of one of the owners. Rich did a wonderful job coordinating the transaction with the title company and estate attorney. I could not be more pleased!

If you are looking for a Realtor in Palm Coast, I highly recommend Rich DeCeglie.

To Whom It May Concern:

If you think four hours is too long to sell your house, then you should not hire Richard DeCeglie. He’s way too efficient for his own good, but let me tell you, he really knows his “hood”. If efficiency and speed is not for you then your “choice” should not be the DeCeglie crew. He works way too fast, ‘your head will spin, but in the end you will win!! Rich… Seriously! I knew I was hiring a go-getter--- but you out-did yourself! Thanks for selling my house as only you could do it! Even Hurricane Irma couldn’t beat you! 

With much gratitude,

         Crystal and l just want to express our appreciation for the way the sale of our home in Palm Coast went. You came highly recommended by our Real estate agent all the way up here in Connecticut. We needed a quick and efficient sale on our home in Florida to allow our purchase of our new home I n Ct to go through and you made it happen. You listed the house on a Monday morning and told us you were going on vacation on Wednesday and I asked jokingly if you could sell it before you left and to our amazement you had a buyer by Tuesday afternoon.

         The whole process was done on a professional way even in the way you showed personal interest in the way you dealt with our tenant. We really appreciated the way you always returned our calls promptly. We will highly recommend you to our friends and family who still live in Florida and when the time comes in the future for our retirement home you will definitely hear from us.

Before choosing a real estate agent, I researched to find the best choice based on the investment they would make into selling my property, how they promote their listings as well as time and effort. Rich DeCeglie stood out as the best Realtor to use for my particular investment property and its location.
Having confidence that Rich could get my property sold quickly, in just 7 days I must add, made this journey easy for me. I am so grateful for his expertise and commitment. Thank you Rich!

I would just like to say that Richard DeCeglie did a good job in getting my parent’s house sold.  We were given some good tips on de-cluttering the house for preparation for getting the house on the market.  Richard then provided us a general resale estimate of comparable houses in the area.  This gave us a good starting point for the initial value of the house.  After two week on the market the interest really slowed down for our house and Richard re-evaluated the current traffic flow and suggested a revised pricing arrangement that would more closely match our specific situation.  We then revised the offering price accordingly which then generated an offer for our house in short order.  So overall we were very pleased with how Richard handled the sale of our house.

Rich here is my review


Definitely one of the best. A consummate professional and great communicator. I've worked with Richard to sell two homes and he sold both quickly and in both cases got me the fair market price. When you're selling a home, it helps you sleep at night knowing your agent is working hard to get you a buyer not just waiting on MLS. Richard hustles to get the job done. I would not hesitate to use him again.

Hi Richard,


Thanks for everything!! I got the check.

I am writing this letter recommending Mr. Richard DeCeglie to whoever is in need of a real estate broker in Palm Coast region of Florida.

I have never met Richard in person. But yet, I have known him for 15 years or more by reading his bi-monthly newsletters. You learn about him through the information he provided, accurate and professional; through articles he included, intellectual and witty. He is a good-doer guy. You see integrity in his life philosophy. I have grown to respect and trust him as a real estate professional.

So, when it comes for me and my husband to consider selling our four properties in Palm Coast, he is the only one we considered to work with. This decision was actually made long before our need to sell the properties.

Our working experience with Richard has been a superb one. He demonstrated his courtesy, professionalism, efficiency and effectiveness in everything he did through our ample communications.

We just feel so blessed to have known and worked with Richard and would like whoever in need of any form of real estate services to enjoy such a high quality accommodations.

Best wishes!!

God bless!!

Initially we were uncertain of the asking price, but Richard diligently checked multiple sources to verify that our pricing was accurate and met our goal of selling the condo within a certain time frame. Consequently, within 90 days of listing our place, it sold!

I would be delighted to answer any specific questions regarding Richard’s performance.  Again, I highly recommend Richard as a “get it done” and personable real estate agent!

December 18, 2015-  I recently sold my mother's house in Palm Coast, FL. Based on a recommendation from a neighbor, I met with Rich DeCeglie and was impressed with the research he had done for comparable listings. I live out of state so could not be personally involved with the usual issues related to selling a home. Rich recommended services I needed, such as a cleaning service. He would go to the house, meet with the vendors, leave keys - anything that was necessary. Rich handled everything that arose, leaving me worry free. He kept me informed about the status of the listing, number of showings, etc. I never felt "in the dark." He promptly returned my calls and was always able to answer my questions. Professional is the term that describes Rich. I highly recommend him to anyone who is selling a home. Sue Capps

Making the right choice!

Let me tell you a short story that might help you make the right choice. My
mother passed in Jan. 2015 & my father passed in June 2015.They owned a
home in Palm Coast, Florida that we now wanted to sell since we all live in New
Jersey. Okay I need to find a realtor & where do I start? Lifelong friends
of my parents that live in Palm Coast told me that the realtor that my parents
used to buy the house in 1994 was still working and was at Watson Realty. They
told me that my parents really liked him and that his name was Rich DeCeglie.
So I looked him up and gave him a call to meet. We met at my parents’ house and
introduced ourselves. Rich starts telling me about house hunting with my
parents and grandmother back in 1994, remembering all their names and how
excited they were when they found this house. He remembered my father writing
him a letter from New Jersey to thank Rich for finding them their dream

house and how my father couldn’t wait to move in. As he’s vividly telling me all
this I’m thinking to myself WOW this guy remembers all of this from almost 22
years ago! This immediately told me a lot of Rich’s character. To me Rich
seemed to care more about his clients than about the transaction. I had no idea
what kind of realtor he was but my gut told me he was my guy. We signed a
contract and listed the house. Well when selling or buying a house there are
always bumps in the road. With each bump

we hit Rich deftly made all the right decisions for us each and every time. We
listed the house in August and sold it in October. We got almost what we were
asking for it. We couldn’t have been happier with how quick the house sold and
the price we got for it, all thanks to Rich! If you happen to choose Rich as
your realtor you will be making a very wise and good decision. It was for us
and who knows maybe in 22 years if my kids decide to move to Florida Rich can
tell those stories about me.

Thank you Rich from your new friends

Cliff & Cathy Sattler.

P.S. Rich’s wheel barrel broke so i gave him my parents,
I have no doubt he will be thinking of my parents Litha & John when he uses
it. That’s just the kind of guy he is.

Dear Rich,

I cannot thank you enough for all of your help in the sale of my parent’s home.  Living in New York I thought the process would be overwhelming.  But, from the first time you walked in the door I felt the sense that we were neighbors and, as a neighbor, you were always there to answer our questions and to ensure that there would be a smooth transition when  the house was sold.  You are a true professional Rich and choosing Watson Realty was the best decision we made.

I hope to see you again.

Dear Rich,

We wanted to express our thanks and gratitude for making the sale of our parents ‘ home such a smooth transaction. We feel things were handled on a highly professional scale down to every last detail.

Your professional service as our selling/listing agent and the support and services of Watson Realty & Watson Title Services were extremely efficient and timely. Given the fact that this sale and closing were handled from an out of state perspective it’s still hard to believe within a little more than 3 weeks there are new owners living in the residence.

Thank you once again for all your work in making this possible. If we can ever recommend your services

We would be more than happy to do so.

This is to express to you our  appreciation for your helpfulness, efficiency and cooperation in selling my mother's home after her death. You were so conscientious in all aspects of the sale that you sold it in a surprisingly short time. Later, you followed through for me in all the procedures involved in closing the sale, and you turned what I had thought would be an insurmountable task for us into an easy accomplishment. And throughout, you constantly kept us informed of all developments. It was a real pleasure to do business with you. I wish you much success in all your future endeavors, and I feel confident that all your future clients will also be extremely favorably impressed with the caliber of your services. Thank you again for all your help.

Richard was extremely helpful in selling our home. His professional advice was right on the mark as to improvements that required before we put the house on the market. His knowledge of the market demands and current real estate conditions in the area were very accurate. He was very professional and kept us informed of everything. He was very pro-active in his sale and methodology. After all, I think it is his hard work and his experience that allowed us to sale our home for more than was expected. I would recommend his services to all potential buyers and sellers.

almost instantaneously which helps greatly especially if you are remote


I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs a high integrity real

Hey, Rich!
Sorry this has taken so long.  Besides moving, working on the new house, waiting for workmen, deliveries, etc. we had big computer problems.  Not quite solved yet, but Ed and I want you to know that we appreciated all your work in selling our property. 
From your first visit to our house, you explained the steps in putting the house up for sale.  We were impressed with your thorough explanation of what was all involved and your job in the sale.  We followed your advice about putting away family pictures and painting the front door.  Led to a better viewing I’m sure.
Your advertising steps made a big hit with my sister in Schaumburg, Illinois, when she saw pictures of our house on the internet. 
Our neighbors were most impressed that the house sold in 20 days!  We were pleased with that, too!  Not to mention that two houses on our street had been up for sale for along time. 
Thanks so much, Rich.  We would definitely recommend you to others.

Richard,  I want to thank you for selling my house in such a short period of time.  The knowledge you have of the real estate in the Palm Coast  is what makes you the premier listing agent in the area.  I appreciate your honesty, promptness, and your sincerity and I can't thank you enough for your great service at listing and selling my house. Anytime I called you with any questions, you always returned my call almost immediately, which means a lot to me. I was very surprised when I received two offers in the first three or four days.  Most of all,  I was very excited when I received and accepted an offer that I couldn't refuse in less than 21 days.  My home at 16 Blakeshire Pl. closed on December 24th of 2014 after only being listed for about a month.  Way to go Richard DeCeglie and the Watson Realty team!!

If I know or hear of anyone who is considering selling their home, I will tell them that the only person for that job is Rich DeCeglie of Watson Realty. He is the most qualified person I know to list your home and get the results you want and in less time. 

Rich is truly a testament to the industry.  Thank you so very much Richard.

I recently sold my home on 23 Freeland Lane, Palm Coast, FL 32137 and have to say it sold very quickly under the realtor I chose. Rich DeCeglie, who is with Watson Realty in Palm Coast, did a fantastic job at listing and selling my home in record time. It was listed and sold within two weeks and I must say I have never had a home sell so quickly. Rich prepared a video of my home and listed it on You Tube as well as Trulia, MLS listings, etc. The day after it listed I had 3 or 4 appointments set to come see the home. Within two weeks we had 3 contracts for me to choose from.

If you are looking to sell a home, I would highly recommend Rich. He is excellent to work with as far as communicating his intentions and listening to the seller’s advice. If I asked him questions on which contract I should take he would not tell me but he would explain the different financing each buyer was using and how each of those financing options worked. This helped me decide which one to take. Whenever I called Rich he either answered my questions or if I had to leave a voice message he would call back within the hour.

I want to personally thank Rich for the excellent job he did for me. In fact, if anyone wanting to put their house on the market and have any questions on Rich I would be happy to talk with them and let them know what a great job he did for me. I can be reached at 540-846-9678. Again, Thank You Rich for a job well done!

Hello Richard,

I would like to personally thank-you for your efforts and support on helping me with the sale of my sister’s Palm Coast home. After her death, I was in a position where I had to take charge of the sale of her house. I felt the house needed a few updates prior to listing it on the market. With living out-of-state and not knowing anyone in the area, you were a great resource with your recommendations. I cannot thank-you enough for the referrals you were able to give to me for the general contracting work, as well as the lawn maintenance/ landscaping work. They were not only very professional, but also honest and dependable. Through these efforts, I was able to increase the profit of the sale of the house.

I have bought and sold several homes and I must say, you are the most engaged & professional realtor I have ever worked with over the years. I really appreciate how well you communicate with your clients. If you do not answer a call, you always have a message with times that you will be returning calls. I always knew exactly what was going on with the sale/activity of the property. Your expertise played a huge role in landing a contract 8 days after being on the market-(marketing/price right). Obviously, you know the Palm Coast area and are well connected and respected. This does not happen by accident, but by focus and hard work. I am sure these are the reasons you consistently rank #1 in sales in Flagler County and the Palm Coast area. I am grateful I had the opportunity to work with you.

My sincere appreciation for all you have done and wish you much success!

Hi Rich
Received the check today from the purchasers regarding the additional household items not included with the sale. Thank you for handling that for us.
On behalf of our family, we would like to thank you for the outstanding way this transaction was handled. Handling this from New York could have been much more complicated and we appreciate that the line of communication was always open, prompt & efficient.  Every phone call & email was responded to as promised.  Although we had interviewed several realtors, we felt immediately comfortable with you. Your suggestion of getting the house appraised before a  listing price was determined was an excellent one. The appraisal came in at exactly what you had estimated it would based on your comps.
In addition, your recommendations for the mover & estate sale person was great. They too, were very professional.  Not being from the area, we would have been at the mercy of the Yellow Pages.
We would not hesitate to recommend your services to our remaining friends and family in the Palm Coast area & wish you much continued success.

Recently we sold our lot in Palm Coast thru Watson Realty with Rich DeCeglie as our
agent. We had consulted with Rich over many years as to whether the timing in
the market was right to sell. This went on for at least 4 years before he told
us that the timing was finally right. Before working with Rich other agencies
were eager to list the lot even though the timing was horrible, as were the
results. We sold our lot within 2 1/2 months and closed before the end of the year. The people at Watson, thru the whole process, were very professional, thorough, informative and friendly.

Dear Rich,

I'm writing to tell you what a great pleasure it has been
working with you on the sale of my mom's condo.
I have to admit that at first I was worried that not too many condo's
were being sold in Palm Coast, particularly in the Lake Forest community.

Due to your commitment, experience, and expertise in realty
we had buyers coming immediately to look at the condo and were able to get a
contract in only two weeks. Some times
it's not our fault if a buyer backs out of a deal, but your very timely
response at getting the condo back out there on the market (the same day)
produced another contract within a week.
Sold and closed in a month, how can you beat that.
My mom and I thank you very much. You will always be more than a realtor to us,
we consider you a true friend. Even
though mom and I no longer live in Palm Coast, we still have connections there
and would highly recommend you if ever their need were to arise.

Many thanks and may God Bless you always.

We have bought and sold property for a number of years in several states,  but by Far Richard knows what he is doing and travels at the speed of light  doing his job.
We have never worked with a person in the market that did such a Great job  and never lead us in any other direction. NOTE, With in one month we were done,  without out all of the Drama.
Don’t waste your time with other companies, just go to the best at  first!!!!!!!!!

 As the sale of our saltwater canal lot is now complete, I can take this opportunity to thank you for your rapid-response and especially for your honesty and accuracy in your market estimate. In less than one week of “on-the-market” time we had two offers in the middle of the competitive range that you estimated. Moreover, from the time you gave us your appraisal of our property until it was sold, you maintained near-daily communication with us. That level of communication was not required, but you did it anyway. It gave us confidence in your ability and showed us you were as engaged in selling the property as we were interested in seeing it sold.

 Someone could always say that the market was “right” or that our price was “too low” and that perhaps is at least partially true. Nevertheless; you brought us a ready, willing and able buyer in one week. It’s a nice relieve to have that sale behind us.

 Feel free to use me for a recommendation anytime in the future.

 Thank you,

I listed my home in Palm Coast, Fl, with Richard DeCeglie in 2012 during a 'buyers' market.  He had a positive attitude about the prospects for a sale when other realtors I contacted did not.

 He advertised my home in an attractive way, including the internet, and he did not pressure me to accept a low bid that we received in a few days.   Within a reasonable time, he found a qualified buyer who paid close to the asking price.

 Rich always answered my calls and kept me informed about the status of the listing.  I recommend Rich to anyone who wants to sell their home in a tough market.

I was in shock when we sold her home in one month in December, but i quickly realized that this is just the norm for an unbelievably gifted real estate agent like you. I have already given out Richard’s number to 3 people because I trust that Richard is hands down the best at what he does because he truly cares about each one of his clients. Thank you so much Richard for all you have done for me and my mother. We will forever be grateful for you and your staff of professionals.

Forgive my lateness in sending you this letter.  We have been quite busy with the move and whatnot. 

Needless to say both Jan and myself were in a state of complete shock when you called the day after we had listed the house and you said you had an offer.  No one sells a house in less that 24 hours, do they?  Well you did. 

 Your comprehensive research closed the sale on the listing.  I wouldn't have thought of going with someone else after all the data you presented.  I might add that a previous realtor had presented a selling price that was well below what we ended up with.

Your communications with us was excellent and we thank you for your expertise.

Rich was very helpful in the sale of my mother's house in Palm Coast. Due to ill health she moved to Maryland to be near the family. The task of selling her house was left to her family and was made much easier thanks to Rich. He put us in contact with various services to get the house ready to sell. The house was priced competitively and we received 2 offers within days of listing it. We accepted the second offer and went to closing within a month. Thanks to Rich and his excellent staff the whole process was so much easier than we ever anticipated.

The daunting task of selling a home can be over-whelming, especially without any knowledge of the real estate field. Whether buying or selling a home, I cannot emphasize how much you need Richard DeCeglie,CRS on your side.

As our real estate consultant he educated us on the real estate market and guided us all the way through up to and including the closing.

His integrity led us to a real estate agent that knew the area better than he did so that the financial integrity of our sale would not be compromised.

His recommendation allowed us to close within 2 weeks of the listing.

His excellent customer service and superior attitude is why I would recommend him to family and friends.

This is to express to you our  appreciation for your helpfulness, efficiency and cooperation in selling my mother's home after her death. You were so conscientious in all aspects of the sale that you sold it in a surprisingly short time. Later, you followed through for me in all the procedures involved in closing the sale, and you turned what I had thought would be an insurmountable task for us into an easy accomplishment. And throughout, you constantly kept us informed of all developments. It was a real pleasure to do business with you. I wish you much success in all your future endeavors, and I feel confident that all your future clients will also be extremely favorably impressed with the caliber of your services. Thank you again for all your help.

Best wishes,

 Hi Richard,

 Thank you for your help in selling Dad’s house. It is an enormous relief to have that behind us – allowing us to move forward with life in North Carolina. Dad is doing great and enjoys the company of family. I am overwhelmingly relieved that he is no longer living alone so far away. We could not have asked for a more perfect resolution of the living situation. I have written you a recommendation which follow.

When we needed to sell my father’s house we chose Richard DeCeglie as our realtor. His pricing strategy proved to be on-the-money and his marketing methods brought in the right buyer. We accepted an offer above the asking price on the second day the house was on the market. Richard’s excellent YOUTUBE video coupled with his contacts with other realtors worked to stimulate interest in the house. We are thrilled with the quick sale, and highly recommend Richard.

Again, we thank you.

Thank you for taking care of my home on East Diamond Dr in Palm Coast. You had my house sold within 2 months. Which is very good since I thought this would take six months. I did not receive any negative feelings from the tenant which had to leave. I will contact you when I have to sell my other homes.

Dear Mr. DeCeglie,
My daughter and I would like to thank you for selling my home.  I have been recieving your informative and enjoyable newsletters.  I even saved them to refer back to , knowing that someday I would need your services.
Recently I finally decided it was time to put my saltwater canal home on the market and I felt you were the one who could get the job done.  I was right!! You gave me excellent advice as to pricing the house right. You came immediately and took many pictures and put them on the internet and emailed them to other agents.  I recieved an offer in two days and after a few negotiations we had an accepted offer.
My daughter and I believe it was your expert knowledge of the market and proactive actions that enable my home to sell so quickly.  This was a quick and efficient process thanks to you.  You kept us informed every step of the way and were available to answer questions.
We will certainly be recommending your services to anyone we know who might be looking to buy or sell a home in our area.  Thank you again.
Yours truly,
Robert Novotny & Kathy Sullivan

Dear Rich:
Please accept this correspondence as an expression of my appreciation for your recent efforts.  You responsiveness and ultimate patience during the prolonged estate process was reassuring.  At the outset, you provided helpful insight as to the Palm Coast real estate market conditions and guidance going forward. 
Once we were poised to market the property you had it on the multiple listing system on a Friday afternoon and by Sunday we had two bona fide offers!!  I attribute this to the professional way in which you presented the property and tailored it to the most interested buyers/brokers.
Your perseverance in keeping me advised as to the progress of the buyer's lender, given the uniqueness of the situation, was also exemplary.  Once again, thank you for the way in which you handled this transaction and please relay this message to those at Watson Title as well.
All my best,

 RE: Sale of 27 Clinton Court South, Palm Coast FL Property

 Dear Richard,

 You sold the property today! Of course that is what you had promised to do, but I am writing to explain why I feel grateful and pleased about the way you did it. As the out-of-state trustee for the Cooley trusts, I knew that I needed a good local realtor. You may recall that a selection committee of estate heirs interviewed you and two other highly recommended and successful realtors to determine who would be our realtor. You were the unanimous first choice, not because you promised the highest sale price but because you had the best business approach and spoke most realistically about the current market situation. I have never regretted our choosing you for the job.

 You immediately started to work. Along the way you offered good realistic advice about options and potential outcomes. When we experienced maintenance problems you found reliable experienced service technicians who corrected the problems on time and within agreed budgeted resources. You guided me through the final paperwork maze. You always kept me informed about the current situation no matter whether it was progress or a setback. I soon learned that I could trust you and that trust was never disappointed. The entire process was a lot of work for you. I tried to keep up with the situation through your reports, and that effort was never a burden. Instead it was a series of pleasant experiences. I'll miss your frequent upbeat phone calls!

 My wife, Marie, who has purchased and sold several properties and observed your handling of this property sale, told me that you have certainly earned your money on this sale.

 Thanks for being our realtor. If I ever need to sell another house in Florida, I'll call you first.

 You have my permission to use all or part of this letter as needed for a recommendation. You may use my name and contact data as a reference.

I cannot speak highly enough about Rich Deceglie and the incredibly professional, timely and most importantly, effective service he provides as my realtor. These times we are in now are very tough on all of us who invested in the real estate market. I have been lucky enough to have found Rich though and sold all of the properties I needed to despite the daunting forecast we are all faced with.

Rich is a joy to work with, he is honest and has a great sense of humor. I have been working with him for about 5 years now and have had nothing but positive experiences. I look forward to brighter days in the real estate market so I will be able to work with him once again.

I’ve told several friends of your GREAT service so hopefully if they look in Palm Coast they will look you up. Thanks again and have a wonderful summer.

Just a brief note to thank you for selling my house.  You initially presented me with your successful marketing formula that has worked well for you for years.  I can pat you on the back and say it certainly worked for me.  Interesting enough you sold my property for much more than the previous agent wanted to list it at.  You are a credit to Watson Realty and your profession. 
Again thank you Rich DeCeglie!

It was a pleasure to work with Richard.  He returned EVERY call in a timely fashion. His monthly assessment was appreicated and helpful in understanding the market.  The pictures he took of the unit were outstanding
Thank you again for your expertise and caring.

I just wanted to drop you a short note of appreciation for your help in getting our saltwater canal home sold. 
2010 has been a difficult year for our real estate market, and your advice was invaluable for positioning our property on the market at the correct price to draw an offer.  Our property was under contract in a few short weeks due to your knowledge and hard work.   
Your expertise in guiding us through the closing process was much appreciated. Closing is not an easy endeavor under the best of circumstances, but was made particularly onerous in this case by a balky mortgage company and a buyer located overseas serving our country. 
I will definitely come to you for all of our Palm Coast real estate needs, and will be recommending your services to all of our friends and neighbors in Palm Coast.
 With grateful thanks,

Dear Richard,
Richard your professional demeanor, friendliness and “can do” attitude immediately let us to a decision to retain you in selling my father’s house. Both my wife and I found from the out start that you took so much pride in your work, which manifests that pride in your commitment and dedication to our need during the most trying times.
We were incredibly impressed with your knowledge, professionalism and amazing attention to detail. After just a couple of conversations with you, we had complete confidence in your ability to manage efficiently the selling of my father’s home. You carefully guide us thru the legal maze which being from out of state was most helpful since we have never been involved in selling the house. You secured the necessary inspections to learn what defects needed to be corrected saved me many thousands of dollars, but when that extra mile in assisted us in locating local electrician, carpenter, painter, landscaper and pool service as well as an estates manager, which allow the home to be place in an improved marketability.
Within 1 day of listing my father’s home with you, you found a buyer, and we sold within 2 weeks. Trust is commodity that is hard earned but well kept and has earned ours. We will definitely be back should we decide to return to Palm Coast and purchase a home.

Dear Rich,

      It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation. Your knowledge and guidance in the sale of our house was of great importance to us.  It was refreshing to know that whenever we called with a question, no matter what time it was you were quick to call back with an answer. Even when the bank was slow on approving the mortgage, you kept us up to date with what ever informaiton you had.

     Please do not hesitate to use us as a recommendation and rest assured should we ever need the services of a real estate agent, you will be the person that we call.

Best wishes,

Hi Rich,
I hope you and your family are having a good holiday season. 
To all sellers of property in Palm Coast.! I highly recommend Rich DeCeglie, if you want results! My property sat dead for 9 months before I listed my old do-nothing Realtor. Rich took my house and had it under contract within 60 days. If you want results and not lip service, call Rich. He will get the job done!

Dear Richard J. DeCeglie,

I would like to thank you very much for all your outstanding and professional work throughout the process of selling my property.  I had tried to sell this property twice previously, with different agents, but unfortunately had no luck.  Not only were you able to sell my property in a timely meaner, but you also made the transaction between the buyer and me, a smooth one.  Even when faced with complications you kept to your word and delivered the results you had promised.  I could not be happier to have done business with you, and I’m very impressed by your knowledge and dedication.  Should I be looking for real estate in that area again, you will be the first person I will contact.  Thank you once again.

Dear Richard,
Well if finally happened. Our house was sold thanks to you. Because of the low or almost no housing market and the house in the above average price range, we did think we would ever get it sold. But, hearing you say “hang in there it will happen” gave us hope.
Being an absentee owner, we needed much help not only with the sale of the house but with little things that needed attention at the house. You were always available when we called with a problem and helped get it solved. Having someone you can trust and have confident in put us at ease.
Because the buyer was located in another country, it took a lot of extra work to make the sale happen. You were there to make sure all parties had the correct information to get an acceptance of the contract. Your experience and professionalism came to the top when we needed it.
Thank you again Rich and wish you continued success in the future. Hope the housing market turns around for you and your fine company.

Dear Rich,

I would like to take this opportunity to write and express Bill's and my appreciateion for your help in selling my dad's house after he passed away.  We were impressed with how quickly you created an appealing presentation of the house on the Watson Realty Website.  Your extensive communication network with other realtors in Flagler County is what, I believe, was the driving force in selling my dad's house so quickly.  Six showiings, two offers and the sale of the house in a week is unheard of in these difficult times.

I appreciate the fact that you called me on a daily basis to inform me of the activity.

Thank-you again for assisting us diuring this difficult time.
