Dear Bess and Ron,

We want to take a moment to reflect on and acknowledge the fabulous service you provided as our realtors.

From the first meeting we felt confident that we had selected the right realtor. Your open and honest communication throughout the process was greatly appreciated; especially since this was our first time buying a home. We feel that the trust we were able to place in you as our realtors created a situation in which we were able to trust the process as well. (Not that we didn't have anxious feelings at times!) We are grateful for the real estate education you imparted throughout the process. Both of you took the time to answer our questions in ways that were easily understandable.

We felt as though we were your only and most important clients as you provided such personalized and responsive service.

We have already been telling our friends, family and colleagues about Equinox Real Estate and the both of you. We are happy to recommend Equinox Real Estate and will definitely call upon you in the future if we need a realtor.

Dear Ron and Bess,

Many thanks for guiding me so gently to the house of my dreams. You have the gift of doing business with heart and vision. I am the grateful recipient of your many gifts. All that.... and the trucks too! So glad to be in the "hood" with you!


The first time I used Ron and Bess Blacquiere was in 1998. Ron was teaching a home-buying class and astonished me with his knowledge and experience in every aspect of buying, selling and managing properties. Because the realtor I’d initially contacted hadn’t sent me any properties to look at for weeks, I asked Ron to help me buy a house. Within a day or two he had 18 ‘good candidate’ properties in my hands. One of them fit my needs exactly. I’ve never in my life seen anyone work harder than Ron did to make it happen. I’ve been referring friends to him ever since.

Ten years later, my wife and I used Ron again after we married and decided to sell her house in the turbulent 2008 market. Ron knew the right selling price and the right approach to line up two prospective buyers the first day it went on the market. Both offered more than our asking price… even with the adjacent house about to go into foreclosure. Best of all, when Ron had to go out of town for a week, his wife Bess, also an experienced realtor, was able to answer my questions until Ron returned. Ron kept us calm when issues arose and we're still grateful for how smoothly the sale went through.

Ron and Bess,

I wanted to tell you guys, that I'm so grateful to be living in my home again. You BOTH are so incredibly generous and loving people. I can never thank you enough. The work, love, and money you have put into seeing that my kids and my life got easier will never be forgotten . . . The house is great. Your help fixing up the house is what made it sell so fast. . .When I tell people everything you've done they can't believe how wonderful you are!

-- Take care, Kelli Douthit

Dear Ron and Bess,

I have been so busy I haven't had a chance to personally let you know how much I appreciate all your hard work and success selling our house.

We wanted action and you delivered and I can't thank you enough. Keep up the good work. I could tell instantly that you have what it takes to get the job done and I also had an instant trust which is hard to come by these days.

I appreciate your integrity and honesty in the beginning with us and again, thank you for all your hard work.

God bless you and keep you.
