It was a great pleasure working with Sandy Stover and her colleagues in the Beth Richards|Sandy Stover Group. As first-time home buyers, my husband and I were in need of lots of advice and hand-holding. Sandy was absolutely up for the task! She was professional, kind, and patient when showing us homes, explaining procedures, and helping us weigh our options. She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. We would describe Sandy as a trustworthy friend, savvy negotiator, and cheerleader all rolled into one. We are so grateful to have worked with her! ~ Sasha Coles and Cody Stephens

We recently sold our home in State College with the assistance of the Richards/Stover Group. Communications from the time we called Beth Richards until the closing of our home was excellent. All activities listing, staging, showing feedback, negotiations and closing were a positive simple experience. All members of the group made us feel as if we were family being assisted in the home sale.

I can't say enough good things about the Beth Richards/Sandy Stover Group! Beth and her team have a great local reputation and my friends and family have been using them for years. I am glad to have finally had a chance to work with Beth on the sale of our State College home. The Beth Richards/Sandy Stover Group are detail oriented--from showing up with fluffy white towels for staging to sending a handyman over for some last minute assistance. I really expected selling my home to be stressful but the process went smoothly and there was communication every step of the way. Beth Richards is cool, calm, and collected with a great sense of humor--necessary qualities in what I'm sure is often a high pressure business. Patty's staging and photographs were fabulous, our house looked amazing. Bridget kept track of the timeline and all the details of the transactions--she is the group's super hero of organization! I will continue to recommend the Beth Richards/Sandy Stover Group for their professional skills, but also for their kindness and integrity.

"Awesome news! We have so much to celebrate--today the SOLD SIGN on our beloved home, our granddaughters 8th Birthday our nephews Wedding on Sunday and so much more. Wow, God's Perfect Timing. What a great joy! Again, thank you to you and team for all you do to make this transition in our lives as stress free and smooth as possible."

"You made this whole transition as lovely as possible. I am very grateful you and Sandy could be our REALTORS. Thank you for your amazing work and expertise." ~ Anne and Kevevan
"(The service) couldn't have been any better! These ladies love what they do and it shows!"
"We really appreciate everything that you did for us. You all were always just so reliable, which seems like it may not be the highest praise, but in times of high emotional and financial stress, and complete upheaval of life and family, there is nothing that could be more helpful, comforting, sane-ifying (if I may coin a word) than to know that we were in such capable hands." 

"You’re a super pro, and you’ve got a great, well-organized team. It really was a pleasure." ~ Katie and Alex

"My wife and I want to thank you (Kathy Gabbard) for the role you played in the sale of our home. We realize you were the agent for the buyers and you had no direct responsibilities to us. However, we benefited greatly through your services as their agent. First, you must have done a masterful job on the Facetime tour of our house. That was all the information the buyers had prior to making their offer. Second, you kept our agent well informed regarding how things progressed, which was very helpful to us because of our need to meet financial obligations elsewhere. We lived in our home for over 50 years. It was the only home we ever owned, so the sale was new and stressful experience for played an important role in making the sale a success and we sincerely thank you for that." ~ Harry


"Good morning the military, when an operation is completed, we do what is called an "after action report "  All it represents is an assessment of lessons learned and an identification of areas where continuous process improvement may apply.  It is a pause in the action to "take stock" of the past in order to better prepare for the future.  After the holidays and when time permits I will send you some feedback.  In the meantime, you have my sincere thanks and appreciation for your efforts and the sale of our house.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your team and best wishes for continued success and happiness in 2018 and beyond. I enjoyed working with you." Mac
