In addition to knowing the" ins and outs" of the resale housing market, Rick has vast and valuable experience with land sales and new home builders. Rick has his finger on the pulse of what is going on currently in different communities as well as what to expect for the future in terms of infrastructure in the fast-growing city of San Antonio.

"If you need a first-rate realtor, go with Rick Grimes. Because of my job, I had to leave my home shortly after it listed, and Rick took care of everything - he looked after the home and made sure everything was in order in my absence, sold it quickly, and expedited all the paperwork. An excellent communicator, Rick was always in contact by text, telephone or email with information and updates. I just can't say enough good things about Rick!"
Our experience with Rick was outstanding. In fact, we purchased two building lots from Rick over the past several years. Rick not only negotiated the purchase of these two lots but also facilitated the sale of one of the lots. We have built our dream home on the second lot and couldn't be happier. Rick worked very hard to find us a lot that not only fit our requirements but was also within our budget.
Thanks Rick for all the hard work on our behalf!!

"Rick, As you know you were one of three interviewed in deciding who to use as a realtor for selling my Dad’s home. What you do not know is that of the three interviewed you were the only one that not only took a personal interest in what we had to offer but was also the most optimistic on its selling potential. In addition to that, the special notes on individual room improvements and the reaching out to all parties that viewed when you knew an offer was already coming resulted in 5 offers with all but one offering more than asking price. That was over and beyond my expectations of a real estate agent."
All The Best, Dave Behrens
"Having known Rick Grimes for the past 11 years, we can confidently say if you are looking for a Realtor in the Cordillera Ranch or Hill Country area, you need look no further. Rick more than exceeded our expectations with the sale of our home. He is extremely knowledgeable about and experienced in all things Cordillera Ranch, and that combined with his expertise in current market conditions, cutting edge marketing, and excellent communication skills makes him a cut above the rest. Rick went well above and beyond what any other agent would do, taking care of everything that needed to be done when we were out of town and could not be there ourselves. He was always available and returned our calls personally and promptly, helping to make the entire process smooth and seamless. Bottom line, you will not find a better Real Estate Agent than Rick Grimes."
"My family and I recently relocated to San Antonio from Los Angeles. We were introduced to Rick Grimes and The Grimes Group by a friend and Keller Williams agent from California, after she conducted a due diligence review of realtors in the San Antonio area. When I asked her why she recommended Rick to us, she shared that he was one of the most highly rated realtors in this area. After working with him, I now know why. From our first encounter with Rick until we closed on our beautiful home at The Dominion, Rick was the consummate professional. The process was a long one from our initial contact until the close, but we always felt that Rick had our best interest as his number one priority. There was never a time when he was not immediately accessible, and his keen knowledge of the San Antonio market and the buying process made the entire engagement simple to us. Not only did he “hold our hands” though the tedious process, but when the owner requested a last minute “30 day close,” he didn’t flinch. Rick provided exceptional service, professional advice, and made us feel that he was personally involved in every detail. Without him, I don’t believe our purchase could have happened. I would recommend Rick to anyone who is buying a home. He was more than just a realtor to us, he was a steadying hand when things got difficult, a shrewd advocate when we sought his counsel, and he quickly became someone my wife and I thought of as our “friend” through the entire experience. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the references Rick provide us after the close for preparation for our move in, and services he knew we would need afterwards. Each one of them was just as professional and capable as he was. In a world where retailers and service providers have forgotten what customer service truly means, Rick reminded us just by being himself, that not everyone has. He was a Godsend!" James & Rachel Black
"My family & I were in need of a realtor after the passing of our mother. Rick Grimes was not only a great realtor, but he was extra helpful in providing referrals to others that could help us in the work needed to ready our mother’s property for sale. We needed repair, estate sale, and legal professionals. Rick knew all the right people to help us! He was patient, fair, and always sincere in helping us, and looking out for OUR interests every step of the way. The Grimes Group is the right real estate firm to use for everyone!"
"Rick Grimes was such a wonderful real estate agent to work with! He helped me with every step of the process from getting the house ready for sale to what to tell buyers with extra requests. It was so much easier to navigate the property process with his expert help. I highly recommend The Grimes Group to anyone with a place to sell."
“Rick Grimes was awesome to work with on our search, from the very beginning of trying to figure out what we wanted, all the way through to closing on our new house. Always responsive, informative, and insightful - we would recommend Rick to anyone looking for their new home” Todd & Jennifer Ermenio
"A house is a place to put your things. A home holds our emotions. Rick knows the difference. He understands that Selling a home is a roller coaster ride of feelings from excitement, to disappointment, insecurity, worry, surprise and elation. Rick will be your emotional Sherpa who will guide you through the home Selling process with experience and grace. He knows his market and, if you listen to him, you will be rewarded in the end. My wife and I listened and our house had an offer the morning after we listed it. There were backups waiting in case the first offer (over asking price) went sideways. His laid back charm and sage wisdom were exactly what we were looking for in a realtor. Rick’s business is to make the process a calm one, and he is good at it."

"Rick, Thank you for working tirelessly on selling our home! John and I first met Rick Grimes in 2009 in the Texas Hill Country community of Cordillerra Ranch. Although he was not our real estate agent at the time, we developed a friendship over the years with his warm personality, endless energy and knowledge of the history of San Antonio and the Hill Country. I made a mental note early in the relationship that if we were ever in a position to recommend a realtor with impeccable integrity or need a realator with the attributes above, that Rick Grimes would be the person we would have to represent our interests. That time came last year when my husband retired after 38 years and we decided to downsize and move back to San Antonio. Rick’s knowledge of the luxury real estate market and surrounding neighborhoods brought us several qualified buyers. He was always available when we called and would circle back to follow up with us after each showing with comments. Additionally, Rick worked tirelessly finding us a great home on the other end. Lastly, we were impressed by his marketing strategy which reached numerous out of state buyers and materials that he developed. Rick used professional high end photographers, drone photography for the brochure, had us featured in Luxury Home Magazine twice and utilized social media. We would use him again in a heartbeat."
Sincerely, John and Rose Monday
"Rick demonstrated his expertise as a realtor with every aspect of selling our home. He was always available to answer questions, providing support and advice on what needed to be done with the home to enhance its marketability. He was also instrumental insuring that the closing process went smoothly. I recently recommended Rick to a neighbor without any reservation in doing so."
Michael & Norma Milner
"Rick, I want to thank you for your diligence and professionalism in selling my mother’s house. I knew we made the right choice for a realtor after you brought multiple offers overnight! Even after a couple of “unusual” situations, you made the process not only bearable, but fun! If I can ever provide a reference, please don’t hesitate to give me a call."
Thanks again! Terri Callins
"One will not find a harder working real estate agent than Rick Grimes! He is experienced, professional, and always had our best interest in mind. We could not have been more pleased with the time, energy, and effort Rick put into selling our home. No one knows Cordillera Ranch better than Rick Grimes; we would highly recommend Rick to anyone looking for a knowledgeable real estate agent!"
Dr. Craig and Molly Glauser
"My wife and I have known and worked with Rick since 2010. Rick's knowledge of the real estate market we were interested in was exceptional. Rick was always available to take calls and show us property and was never the "high pressure or pushy" real estate agent. He is extremely professional in his demeanor and approach to questions and concerns. We would highly recommend Rick for any real estate needs you might have as his knowledge, ability and approach will not only give you that comfort feeling but the results he produces will be what you are looking for. He truly is a solid individual who excels at his profession."
Jim & Brenda White
"It was a pleasure to be able to work with Rick Grimes to find our home in Cordillera. We have worked with many realtors over the years and Rick is far and away the best agent we have had the opportunity to work with. His extensive knowledge of the Texas Hill Country and his ability to find us the perfect house in a very short period of time provided a stress free house hunting experience. He made us feel like we were his only client. His communication was always timely and attention to detail made our transition to Texas seamless. He listened to what we wanted in our home and found us the perfect house in Cordillera Ranch!"
George & Becky Gross
I have had the pleasure of working with Rick Grimes on multiple projects over the past few years. As a custom builder, I am extremely appreciative of Rick’s thorough follow through for his clients from lot selection to move-in and beyond. His extensive knowledge of hill country property allows him to find the perfect property to meet his client’s needs. Rick is an outstanding, dedicated realtor and I would not hesitate to recommend him for any of your real estate needs.
"I can recommend Rick without any reservations. I worked with him on 2 separate real estate transactions, once as a Seller and later as a Buyer. In both situations, Rick was a true professional: honest, responsive, knowledgeable about the market area, and fair to all parties involved. He has also helped me find excellent service providers for ongoing projects on my property, and has freely given sound advice whenever I asked for it. I would not hesitate to use Rick again when buying or selling real estate in the San Antonio area."
"Rick helped Susie and I buy a lot in Cordillera Ranch in August 2015 to build our dream home. He talked to us at length to understand what we were looking for. He gave us several thorough tours of the ranch several times and helped us narrow down the choices very quickly. We were impressed that he knows details of every lot in Cordillera off the top of his head! Rick is a true professional and became a good friend throughout the process."
John & Susie Long
Rick spent an afternoon with us searching for the perfect lot in Cordillera Ranch. He listened to our desires and budgetary requirements assisting us in locating the perfect lot. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, provided comps and was attentive all the way through to closing. He has become a friend in the process. We highly recommend Rick and Tonja to meet your needs in finding your perfect home or lot and will refer all our friends to them.
