Herb Ripley, LLS

Herb brings a broad wealth of experience into his role of guiding home buyers and investors alike in the selection of appropriate properties. His background in management and construction gives a lot of depth to his judgment and opinions. When he looks at a property he knows what is right and what is wrong and more importantly, he knows what is fixable and what is not worth the effort. It’s a balancing act because few properties are perfect or a perfect fit but it’s what Herb loves to do for his clients.

For buyers of personal residences Herb will look beyond the ‘wow’ factor that a property may have and look for fundamental value, future resale value and functionality. For his investor clients Herb has written a program to analyze each property for its potential ROI in addition to its fundamental value. It’s intentionally written with conservative expectations so his clients won’t be disappointed in the outcome. (Yes he has programming experience along with database management, clinical research, engineering design and manufacturing, etc).

Herb’s clients have given him high marks for always ‘watching their back’ in the selection and negotiation of their acquisition. With some agents this becomes a matching of wits and Herb is very skilled in balancing the wants and needs of his clients against the wants of the other side. This is where you really need the skill of an experienced agent like Mr. Ripley.

Herb moved from San Diego to Sacramento in 1999 to marry his ‘bride’ Barbara Ford. Barbara is a highly regarded CPA, which dovetails nicely with Herb’s real estate skills, and between the two of them they also have an extensive network of highly skilled and reliable vendors to refer their clients to.

Wonderful experience. The home sold rapidly and Herb Ripley coordinated everything from home inspection, appraisal, Title Company interaction and some required construction work. He worked around our schedule and handled all the contact with the buyer and their broker. I would recommend Herb and Lyon Realty to anyone thinking of buying or selling in the Sacramento Market. Thank you Herb! Craig and Wilma Parker Orangevale
