About Us

What our clients say about us:

Now days it is hard to find quality and compassion in this world, followed by a five star rating in every area. But, that is what you will find in the following recommendation of Rich Simmons, Fairway Real Estate, Yelm, Washington.

Rich's presents him self with always a positive and professional manner. Our first meeting was so impressive that we were recommending him the very next day.

How lucky were we to find a realtor with very extensive knowledge of the Yelm area. Because of his experience and "on the ball" attitude, we were able to find our "dream home" after only showing us three house. He made us fill secure and not rushed. Our time with him became a down to earth learning experience!

He always had time for all our questions, was prompt at every meeting and most of all presented both sides letting us make the final decision.

With out a doubt Rich Simmons is a five star humble man and Real Estate-- We recommend him highly and consider ourselves blessed to be in his company!


Rich went above and beyond his duties by making sure he always protected us through every step of the process. He did not treat us like a paycheck and saved us thousands of dollars and heart ache. He would advise us to have houses inspected thoroughly to ensure they were in good condition. We ended up buying a home through a short sale. Rich made sure to warn us about the potential complications and length of time it could take to close such a sale. Throughout the process, he kept us as updated as possible. Right at the end of the sale he demanded the other party show us a septic tank inspection report even though they claimed that he septic was fine. This may have put a slight delay in the process, but it turned out that the septic needed to be fixed. Had he not protected us, we would have had a leaking septic and a bill to fix it. I would recommend him to all of my family and friends!


After losing our home in a foreclosure, my husband I needed a place to rent that would accommodate both us and our pets. We found a rental we liked, and Rich happened to be the listing agent and property manager. When we called to ask about the house, Rich set up a time for us to view it that day. He met us at the house, took his time letting us explore the home and yard, and answered our questions honestly. We explained our situation, and he helped negotiate our security and pet deposit so we could afford to move into the home. We've been in the house 3 months now, and we love it! Rich is always available when we call and he responds quickly to requests for assistance. Rich is honest, reliable, and has a great sense of humor! I enjoy working with him and highly recommend him.

Rick is currently managing a rental of ours in Yelm. We live out of the country and were blessed to find Rick to care for our property. We get monthly activity statements, he does the rest. He has done a great job for us. We would recommend him for Property Management from sure. With his knowledge and integrity, I am sure he would also be great as a listing agent OR a selling agent


I contacted Rich on a home to lease recently and he met me at my business and took the time to tell me all about the place even introducing me to one of the owners. He said that from what he knows about my needs that this home was probably not what I needed but knew of another with a big shop. The Eatonville Shop is currently being lived in by the owners kids but should be available by Jan. if not sooner. I also discovered his wife knows one of my customer's wife and that her husband spoke highly of me. Wow, Small Towns, You Gotta Love Em'. Am Looking forward to hearing about this Eatonville home and am confident he will be a valuable source of advice and information. I will post again with Good News! Thank You Rich! Tonna


Rich is the only person I trust to manage my property. As I live on the east coast ant my property is on the west coast it was very importnt to me to have someone I felt I could trust. I interviewed several other property managers prior to Rich. Everyone else made me feel as if I was just a number, Rich made me feel like I was a friend. Since that day he is the only one that will manage my properties. He is very prompt with forwarding my payments monthly, he calls immediately with any issues that arise, any work he has done on the property is done very quickly by qualified professionals. I have NEVER had any reason to question his honesty and integrity.


Rich has been my property manger of two rental homes in Yelm for 4yrs now. He is by far and away the best asset I have. Since day one he has handled all issues that have arisen with quick and efficient professionalism. Dana Cella


I hired Rich to manage my family's property because all of the owners (me and my siblings) live out of the area. Rich immediately found a responsible renter and has promptly informed me of various issues that have come up with the house (minor repairs). He is honest, straight forward, and dependable.
