My name is Ryszard “Richard” Pela and I am a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Advantage in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Originally from Poland, I migrated to the U.S. at the age of 8 and lived in Rhode Island until I joined the active duty Army in 2003. During my military career, I was stationed at Fort Bragg, NC and Pearl Harbor, HI with deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. While stationed with the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) in Hawaii I took part in several missions to Vietnam, Germany and Poland in search and recovery missions to find and bring home remains from our missing service members from past conflicts.
After ending my military career in 2012, I pursued my passion in real estate. I enjoy helping people sell their homes, as they end one chapter of their life and seek to start the next, as well as helping buyers find their dream homes. I’m also a real estate investor actively buying, fixing and reselling homes.
I am married to my beautiful wife Cynthia who is a graduate of Campbell Law School and is a real estate attorney with Hutchens Law Firm and we have one son Michael who is quite the joyful handful.
Ryszard has been absolutely fantastic throughout the entire process. Not only is he friendly, but he knows Fayetteville and the surrounding areas extremely well, and is always just a call or text away. Ryszard was expecting the arrival of his second child during the time we worked with him and he still made sure that he kept us informed of all things having to do with our pending offer. I would recommend Ryszard to anyone looking to buy in the area.
Richard is an outstanding agent. He truly succeeded where other agents failed. My house sat on the market for 8 months with little to know showings while dealing with my previous agent. Richard had a showing within the first two weeks of taking over and did an excellent job negotiating on my behalf and turning that first showing into a sale. What really set him apart was his diligence in keeping me informed every step of the way on the status of my house sale. I didn't have to pull information out of him and wait weeks for return emails and phone calls. He always responded to my inquiries on the same day with complete and accurate information. I highly recommend Richard to anyone looking for a results oriented agent that can get the job done!!
Wonderful agent that helped us understand the process and details of buying our first home. He was constantly communicating with us which was especially important since we were out of the state. He also was quick to prepare all the necessary documents needed for the home and would explain what they were to us. Wonderful.
