I highly recommend Rick for buying or selling in the Sebring or Lake Placid areas. He has a background as a building contractor and he was much more useful than the home inspector that we hired. Rick always responded to every phone call, text and email that we sent in a timely manner. We deeply appreciate his professionalism, knowledge and hard work. You can’t go wrong with Rick as your agent.

Rick was awesome ! His professional attitude along with his friendly personality is an amazing combo! He went above and beyond to help us get the perfect home for us! I would recommend him to everyone!


Excellent service! Helped out tremendously. After we were moved in we had a problem and he found us a person to fix it right away. Very Professional. Would Recommend Rick for your buying or selling needs.

I would highly recommend Rick. He’s very honest and hard-working individual who will put your best interest first. He has great local knowledge of the area and of his chosen profession.


First he is a licensed appraiser so I had absolute confidence in what Price I should list my house. He had great suggestions for how to stage the house for showing. It worked. Had to showings the first day and both were full price offers. He is the best.

Rick has had hands on experience as a contractor and builder in his past before becoming a real estate agent. He was very knowledgeable in local codes in Fla. The current market conditions and he knew his competitors when we were looking to purchase. He was able to answer every question we had and always was prompt with an answer within 12 hrs. I would strongly recomend Rick Buntenbach if you are either buying or selling your home. You will have no worries about the whole process. From start to finish. Rick is your guy.

Rick showed us our house the same day we ask him about it. He was with us 100% of the way with a difficult out of state move. He even found us resources within town to help after we had moved in. We found our dream home with his help and would highly recommend using him to help find yours.


We‘re an owner from Germany. So it was hard for us to sell our house with the stuff inside.
Rick Bintenback and Whitney help us every time. They have a very good local experience and give us an answer to all our questions. The whole process was really very good! We can sell completely for a good price for uns and the buyer. A big THANKS to All!
They do this like friends.


Rick and Whitney were absolutely amazing in how they handled the purchase of your new home. The buys agent Carl got the ball rolling. We were so glad that Carl answered the call to get us started.

This team was also important in the selection of other needs during the process and their recommendations (lender, inspections, insurance, etc.) were above and beyond.

I haven’t purchased a home in nearly 20 years and they made the process easier than I had ever remembered.


He was extremely helpful and understood exactly what I wanted. We found my new home.
Rick also assisted me with finding so much information needed about people, services, and other things in the area.


Rick was a pleasure to work with. I would certainly use him for another transaction. The property he listed was challenging and he did a great job of getting it visibility and even competing offers

For several years, my wife and I were looking for the perfect Lake House. Rick was very helpful and patient during our search. I am sure if Rick were not assisting we would not have found exactly what we were searching for. Once Rick found exactly what we were looking for, Rick was extremely helpful and responsive in everyway; through the closing and beyond. We could not have asked for anymore from a realtor.


My wife and I felt very comfortable with Rick and his wife.They are very professional and knowledgeable about the local housing market and all aspects of the buying and selling process. I would highly recommended using them.


Rick was great to work with for buying our first home. He had lots of great recommendations and was very helpful through the whole process. We will definitely use him again in the future and highly recommend him to friends and family.

The best realtor in all of Sebring. We bought our house from them 3 years ago when other realtors wouldn’t even return your call. When we placed the house on the market we would not have listed it with anyone else. Sure enough it was sold right away and everything went through workout a problem.


Rick and Whitney represented both parties in our case. They went above and beyond, listened and found solutions to major problems. I know Rick made very little money on this simple yet complicated land deal, so I can only imagine how much harder (if possible) he would be willing to work for you and your family on an even bigger venture.

Solid people, grounded in scruples and sincerity.

My kids now play in a 8′ X 20′ tree house watching the sun splash into the lake front property. They heard our dreams.


We have used Rick on two real estate transactions in the past 18 months. We have found him to be very knowledgable of real estate prices in the area. Rick actually saved us money because he thought a property was over priced, and he was correct. Rick is always available and very helpful. Whatever you need, Rick can assist you. We were very pleased with his services!


Very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Quite happy with him and his wife. At least one was always available. No problems at all. Had new properties right at hand when we wished to see new ones.


We purchased a property Rick had listed online. We live in TN and were looking for a winter home in FL. We went to FL, loved the property and made our purchase. Rick handled all the details for us during the time between purchase and closing. We could not have been more satisfied with the deal. We have recommended Rick to numerous people including a very close friend that recently purchased a property in FL using Rick as his realtor. Rick is very knowledgeable of the area and a pleasure to work with.


I am happy with the sale of my home and with Rick and Whitney’s excellent attention to details in handling the sale. Rick was very good with handing prospective customers during our open house and he was most informative with the details of my home.
