Personally I worked with Rick Rico, a part of the Lucas Howard team. He was fast and responsive and I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better realtor.

For a first time home buyer The Lucas Howard Group made it easy and educational for me from the very beginning. They will tell you exactly what puts you in the best position even if it means waiting and saving or doing somethings to improve a credit score. Their patient, teacher like approach made me feel comfortable about making the biggest purchase of my life.

Felicia Pope

Loved Lucas and he did an awesome job helping us get our dream house for the best price. Negotiated on our behalf and had a lot of information about the area.

Sean Pope

My favorite part about working with Lucas was that he was more interested in making sure we picked the right house than anything else. He was easily to reach throughout the entire home buying process and took the time to answer all of our questions.

I would highly recommend working with Lucas to my friends and family.


Rick Rico at The Lucas Howard Group provided us with excellent service and advice while we purchased our home. He showed us every home we were interested in during the same day that we asked to see it, negotiated our sale price for us, and always responded promptly to any form of communication. I highly recommend him and the Lucas Howard Group.

He is amazing. Wouldn’t consider another realtor after our experience. He was prompt and had a good level of communication and is very kind and trustworthy. He kept our best interest in mind!

Fr!ed and Rose Elmore

This guy is awesome. He told me exactly what I needed to do yo get the house ready to sell. ( mostly clean, clean, clean). He gave me good advice on the asking price. He went all out marketing the house. The house sold the day after it was listed and for the full asking price.

Karl And Ashley Malefyt

Lucas and his team are top notch. I have the utmost confidence in him and his abilities. Lucas was excellent at explaining the process and walking us through any questions we had, and his builder experience was very much appreciated. I will recommend him and his team forever.

Sarah Bower

Lucas is very knowledgable and honest! Working with someone who has integrity and honesty is so important – especially when purchsing a home AND when selling (We’ve used him for both). He’s reliable and does everything he can to make this process easy and fun! Anyone looking to buy or sell a home- Lucas is the ONLY one I would recommend.

Scott Brower

We have bought and sold a house with Lucas, and are currently looking for our second home with him. He is on the ball and very responsive. He is extremely professional and well educated in his profession. I’ve spoke with other realtors before finding Lucas and we will never use anyone else. He definitely has our best interests in mind.

Amos and Alison Groenendyk

We interviewed three other realtors before choosing Lucas Howard. We chose Lucas because he was 1) the best prepared 2) well organized and strategic 3) the most authentic.

We had an in depth conversation about pricing and selling our house. He sent in a profession photographer that took the best home pictures I’ve ever seen, which really helped our house sell.

Initially, we had tried For Sale by Owner for about a month with very little activity. After 10 days, we had multiple offers and sold our house for above list price!

There is no group that will take better care of you and find you EXACTLY what you are looking for. They listened to my specific wants and fulfilled them all. All questions were promptly responded to and they were available whenever I needed them. They know their job and they do it well!

Lois Dietzer

We could not ask for a better company with which to deal than Lucas Howard Realty; and we could not more highly recommend Rick Rico as an agent. Our experience with Rick, and with the entire staff of Lucas Howard Realty was A++ from start to finish. These are consummate professionals who listen to their clients and do an outstanding job. Five stars should be ten!


Rick was a very helpful agent throughout the entire process. He made time in the evenings and when it was convenient for us to see properties, he gave us updates when any were available, and responded quickly to any inquiries. He answered any questions we had (and we had a lot!), whether they were about a house, a price, an area, or how the process works. He was very honest and up front with us about everything and didn’t seem as if he was just trying to rush us through the process so he could get a commission. If the rest of the agents here work the same way he does, they know how to do things!

Lucas and his team was able to get our house listed and generate significant interest and have it sold in a very short period of time. He was continually in contact with us with any issues and provided a level of service which was better than I could have expected. If needed, we would love to use him and his team again and would recommend him to anyone.

Ashley Farr

Lucas was very well prepared from the initial listing appointment armed with comps in the area. He provided great feedback on areas in the house to declutter and how to stage the home for open houses and showings. He was very responsive and kept us up to date through the closing process and made sure everything was scheduled around our schedule. He was a great teacher during this process and his team is so easy to work with. Within 4 days of having our house listed it was SOLD!

Ryan Schubert

Lucas was extremely knowledgeable and we were impressed with his strategy from the day we first spoke with him. We felt that Lucas was sincere and dedicated to his clients and therefore, someone we could trust and wanted to work with. He was honest and a great advisor. Thank you Lucas for your hard work and impressive selling strategy. We look forward to working with you again in the future!

user 56444871

I highly recommend Lucas Howard. He is very knowledgeable. Both Lucas and Elissa have helped me locate the perfect home. I have personally worked closely with them for the past 5 years. They are both extremely professional and efficient. They always go above and beyond for all their clients! I am truly grateful to know and have worked with them. If you are searching for a home and are looking for fast response time, call Lucas!

Thank you!

Carla Morrison

Selling my home was effortless! Lucas took care of everything and got the job done and, done very well! I could not believe how fast he was able to sell my home and he found me a new home just as fast and, exactly what I was looking for. He is polite and respectful and hard working. Anytime I had a question he was right there to answer it. I would highly recommend the Lucas Howard Group!

Adam Baker and Justin Stone

Lucas was recommended to us by two separate friends of ours who had used his services to list & sell their homes. We met with Lucas to define our requirements and we started receiving e-mail results that matched our search requirements very quickly. Throughout the process he was responsive to all of our questions and expressed willingness to set up showings for us on extremely short notice. He also gave us some great advice on writing our offer that paid off… the property we ended up buying was getting a LOT of traffic, and I believe that Lucas’ advice helped get our offer to the top of the pile and accepted.

Matthew C Sisson

Lucas helped us sell one home, and buy two! He is very knowledgable and available when you need him. We went through 3 real estates agents… and we’re very pleased once we found him. Lucas is the only person that we would ever use, for buying and/or selling.

user 327771

Luke is amazing. You would be lucky to have him work with you on buying or selling your next home. I found my myself in a bind after taking a new job out of state and he was able to sell my house up in Michigan while I was in North Carolina. He kept me up to date the entire process and didn’t miss a beat. Two words about the experience “flawless execution”. I will be referring everyone I can his way.

user 0226025

I was so glad that I choose Lucas as our Realtor for both selling our old house and finding us a new house. He was very good at explaining EVERY step of the process as we went along. He really understands the good and bad about the short sale process and gave us very helpful information so we didn’t get into something that we were not prepared for. He was super patient with us because it was a lengthy process for us to find the perfect home for us and at no time did he make us feel pressured to settle for something that wasn’t perfect. At times I would get frustrated at how long it took because I was looking for something very specific but he worked hard to show us houses until he found us the perfect one and then helped us get it at a better price then I thought would be possible. Lucas is honest, smart, trustworthy and very good at every aspect of his job. You will not be disappointed if you choose him as your realtor.

user 699152

We searched with Lucas for a few months. He was always quick to respond and was willing to change his own plans to make room for us. He was very knowledgeable when it comes to the home buying process. This was helpful to us being first time home buyers. I would reccomend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Sara Chaffin

The Lucas Howard Group is absolutely amazing. This is the first review I’ve ever written because these guys truly deserve it – I cannot recommend them enough.  Lucas and Elissa are professional, friendly, knowledgeable, encouraging, quick to respond,  available when you need them to be and just genuinely great people.

Eric Garvelink

As a first time home buyer, I needed someone who was experienced and that I could trust with the overall process of buying a home. Lucas and The Lucas Group were extremely professional, trust-worthy, and knowledgeable during the entirety of the process. Lucas was able to put my mind at ease knowing I was in good hands with him as my Realtor. I wold definitely recommend working with the Lucas Howard Group to anyone looking for a home in the GR area.

Adam Baser

The Lucas Howard Group made our first house buying experience truly special. Lucas understood our particularity in finding what was ideal for us and our family.  Lucas conducted our search with integrity and a fine attention to detail. We went from a tiny apartment with two baby girls to plenty of room for them to run and play.

Debra Robinson

Lucas Howard Group truly care about the people they work with. I was referred to Lucas Howard by my son and daughter-in-law. Lucas and Elissa absolutely went above and beyond to help them get their first home. They were there to help them get their first home. They were there to guide them thru the process every step of the way.

Jake Kozul

Lucas and Elissa were incredibly helpful in my home purchase. I have worked with a number of agents as a loan officer and in my dealings with investment properties; they are two of the best agents I have had the pleasure of working with.  Excellent communication, knowledge and professionalism. I will recommend my clients, friend and family to them with confidence.

Steve Arehart

The Howards were incredibly accommodating and very patient with us, being we were first time home buyers. Any questions we had were promptly answered, or at least responded to, no matter when it was, be it night or on a Sunday. They held a genuine interest in us and we could tell they truly wanted us to get exactly what were were looking for.

Nate Browley

I was looking for a home to buy and as going through some other joe shmo who was getting me nowhere.  A family member pointed me in Lucas’ direction which was the best thing that could have happened to me.  Lucas is very professional and very knowledgeable about what he’s talking about.

J West

The Lucas Howard Group are by far the best realtors in town! We had our house for sale for 2 years and the realtor that had listed it not only didn’t sell it but we had ONE showing in two years!! When we called Lucas he had a marketing plan and he had people walking through our house on a weekly basis! After two months our house was sold! We could not believe it actually sold!  He, for sure, can sell yours.

Eric Johnson

Lucas and his group are awesome. Last year was our first time buying a home and I knew absolutely nothing about the process. Lucas was so friendly and he took the time to explain everything with us and make the process very easy.  One other thing about the process is that Lucas was totally honest with us when we looked at homes.

Matt Chapman

Lucas did a great job helping us through the first time home buying process.  He patiently answered all of our questions and helped us get into a great home that was move-in ready. Knowledgeable, helpful, and trustworthy. Highly recommended.

Karl Fonnesbeck

amazing…Lucas Howard made the sale of our home and purchase of our new home seamless. Lucas’ service, knowledge and professionalism was outstanding. Hands down, I wold use him again and tell everyone I  know to give him a call.

Danelle Mannor

Lucas Howard was very helpful and he made the experience more smooth. He was a great listener and that helped in finding our forever home.  I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Brad Arnold

I had a house on the Grand Rapids market for 2+ years without any acceptable offers. I changed realtors to Lucas and he had it sold within 3 months!!! Best decision I ever made. Lucas is a GREAT marketer and very professional in his representations. If you don’t choose Lucas to list your property, you are making a BIG mistake!!!

Paige Biek

Rico Rico from the Lucas Howard Group too such good care of us. We were really unsure what we wanted and my husband can be a little difficult (he know a lot about construction and such). Rick was even great to our daughter. Even while we were closing on the house, he got her a birthday gift. that means so much to a young family. This was our first home and it was great!!

Garr Russell

Lucas has helped me and my clients with several real estate transactions and we couldn’t be happier. He is top notch in all he does!

Jamie Blanch

Our experience with Lucas Howard Group was first rate. Lucas and his team were always available for questions or concerns, and we always felt like we were getting a fair and honest answer. We are very happy to recommend his services.

Jeremy Anderson

Our family used the Lucas Howard Group to purchase a lot t o build a custom home on last year. We had a fantastic experience and have already recommended them to a number of families we know in the area who were searching for homes or selling their homes.  They are, without a doubt, the best in GR. You will NOT be disappointed.

Matt Wilfong

Luke was very helpful and patient during our househunting. He helped us  find the perfect home for what we were looking for.  Thanks!

Robert Kennell

we looked at several houses before we found the one we could call home. Lucas was very patient with us and wanted us to find that perfect home no matter how long it took. When we found that perfect house we could call home, he made sure we got it. He did his homework and when it came to selling my house it sold in 8 hours.

Chaeli Ackerman

We were purchasing a home in Grand Rapids while living in Texas, which has some difficulties. Lucas and his team went to bat for us and got us the house we were most excited about. We feel comfortable working with Lucas and his team and they were on top of every step of the process. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks Lucas!!

Katie Fowler

Lucas sold our home in a matter of days for above our asking price.  Hr and his wife were knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. If you are looking for a responsive realtor with a well developed system for selling homes, look no further.

Jamie Rau

Lucas is awesome! Very attentive to his clients and a pleasure to work with!
