Adding value as a strong advocate for my clients is what I find the most worthwhile aspect of my real estate career.
Since retiring from the music industry in my early forties, I've found plenty of opportunity to add value in the real estate arena. I'm still in "show" business and enjoy treating every client like a superstar. The communication and management skills I honed while keeping the wheels moving for touring musicians throughout the U.S. and abroad are invaluable in my real estate practice.
Each real estate transaction presents a unique opportunity to avoid potential pitfalls and to advance my clients' interests.
A relentless pursuit to add value and protect my clients over a 25-year-plus career as a Real Estate Broker licensed in Connecticut, New York and Hawai'i has resulted in over 1,000 successful transactions with dollar volume in excess of $1B.
My 2021-2023 YTD sales volume is over $150M. I cannot thank my clients enough for allowing me to help them through what has been a stressful time for all. My patience to get things done right on their behalf is boundless.
My wife and I are longtime stewards of "The Birdhouse", an iconic c.1733 colonial on Main Street in Essex Village. We moved to Essex in 1997 with our then four-year old son. We have enjoyed roles in several civic organizations and clubs in town and the shoreline area over the years.
I sail competitively as a member of Essex Yacht Club in one design fleet and team racing, and have competed in the Newport Bermuda race. I am also a licensed private pilot, and sometimes sit in on keyboards or harmonica if a band has an opening for a bluesman.
Occasionally I work remotely from our second home on Maui, taking advantage of the latest in mobile technology while supported on the ground by my stellar team in Essex.
I rank #1 in sales volume in Middlesex County and the town of Essex for 2023.
If you are considering selling, there may not be a better time to contact me. If buying, I may be able to find property meeting your requirements that is not publicly available. I will put your interests ahead of mine in either role while negotiating for you.
Whether you contemplate buying, selling, or both; I would love to hear your needs and get to know you. Any discussion we have will be kept strictly confidential.

Wonderful experience selling my home from listing to closing. Professional and very responsive through the whole process. I would recommend using them to anyone selling their home.Kimberly Graf
I’ve worked with Rick at Sotheby’s many times and have always had an excellent experience. Sadly this most recent move will take me out of state, but I will continue to recommend Rick and his team. Thanks!Charmagne Eckert
Rick Weiner is the most conscientious realtor that I have ever worked with. Thank you Rick; you are knowledgable and a true expert on real estate. I cannot imagine anyone else would have gone the extra mile for me like you did. DeborahDeborah Edelman
Rick Weiner is an exceptional real estate agent - not only does he have vast knowledge and experience in real estate in the area, he is a professional that truly cares about all aspects of the buying and/or selling experience - and the satisfaction of his client. He has represented me in both purchases and sales and has always gone above and beyond to ensure a positive outcome for me. I highly recommend Rick, as well as Sotheby's, for a truly best-in-class real estate experience. Heidi Kunzli EssexHeidi Kunzli
Rick is an exceptional realtor. He has been our realtor in four transactions and is a consummate professional. We highly recommend him.Anderson McCurdy
This is the second time that we had the chance to work with Rick. He represented us in purchasing our home years ago and we immediately called him when we decided it was time for us to sell it. We had such a fabulous experience working with Rick to sell our home. From initial consultations and advice, all the way through the listing and closing processes, Rick was there - with perspective, expertise, guidance and support. We recommend Rick without reservation and know that we would call him again in a heartbeat if we are in the real estate market in the future.Danielle Schmelkin
We truly feel Rick is one of the top agents in the area. His great communication skills, knowledge & resourcefulness is outstanding.Margaret & Gary Dayharsh
Rick was truly knowledgeable and very professional. He remained calm through delays from the bank and guided me through to success.Andrea Gargiulo
Rick Weiner was a wonderful and calming guide in a very frantic buyer's market. His industry contacts and market knowledge helped us find the perfect house even when we didn't think it would be possible. We would highly recommend him!Jessica Plant
Rick and Liz did a great job!David & Earla Frisbie
Very professional done, excellent and prompt service. Highly recommended.Robert & Donna Burt
Rick Weiner is a consummate professional. He did a superb job.James Lyons
Rick Weiner, through our experience ,has been the quintessential agent any buyer or seller should be lucky enough to engage .All real estate agents would be wise to aspire to his expertise in understanding his client , knowing his market and finding a solution to making everyone involved feel as though their expectations were exceeded .Between he and his associate Liz Dellecave , we felt secure in that our voices were heard and with determination , persistence and generosity ,they made us very happy indeed .Andrew Turshen
Rick has done an outstanding job for us on two properties.David & Earla Frisbie
Rick Weiner was the agent-ying to my seller-yang — as we were perfectly matched + will, therefore, remain friends for life, and I sincerely would not have worked so well with any other! It's easy to stand behind my 5-🌟 rating + recommendation for anyone buying or selling a home in the Essex, CT area.Christine Hunter
Our experience with Rick Weiner was second to none. He's fantastic at what he does, and clearly cares about his clients. Our home sale had some unusual twists and turns, but Rick handled everything perfectly. His assistant Liz was also fantastic. I would gladly recommend them to anyone looking to sell a house.Geoffrey Konstan
Rick Weiner handled both ends of our transactions. He represented us with the sale of our current home as well as the purchase of our new home. We have worked with Rick for many years and respect his deep knowledge and experience for making things happen. With so much of the industry seeming to rely on the internet, it has been clear to us that a broker/agent like Rick still provides a very valuable service in a great many ways. As such, we have recommended him to two of our neighbors who successfully engaged him and this has led to additional sales in our 53 home community.Lynda Wilkes
Rick is a great Real Estate agent and always great to work with.Randell Block
Our interaction with Rick Weiner was Five Star all the way. Rick provided an honest evaluation of our property and provided professional guidance throughout the sale process. The end result and amount of the sale was beyond our expectations. We would absolutely recommend Rick, his team and William Pitt Sotheby's.Debra Patrician
Rick Weiner was great! Stayed in close contact and was very helpful thru the entire process.David & Michele Ferrucci
Rick Weiner has been our "go to" person for buying and selling our homes for many years. Since 2009, for example, he has handled four transactions and each reflected his deep experience and highly professional approach. We have recommended him to neighbors and each has been very satisfied as well.Daniel Wilkes
Rick Weiner is simply the absolute professional when it comes to buying and selling residential properties. This is the third transaction we have consummated with Rick and will use his services again in the future. No detail is too small. He is informative, tenacious and a deal maker. He assists from a candid evaluation of the economics, the potential time on market and fulfills the most important rule of real estate ABC. He is THE CLOSER.Henry Resnikoff
Rick was the seller's agent when we moved to Essex, and we knew then that he was the guy to sell when we got to that point. Well, that time came, and we couldn't be happier. He took care of everything that came up.Mark & Nancy McDonald
Rick Weiner was the consummate real estate professional. He was very knowledgeable about Essex, the surrounding areas, and knew just about every house and what would be a good fit for us. Rick was very instrumental in our buying our home and we could not have done it without his help. We are very grateful and would recommend him to anyone wanting to buy a home with as little stress as possible! Thanks Rick!James & Michele Duffy
I was very glad to have our house sold in these stressful times.Emeline & Howard Jacobs
I would recommend Rick Weiner without hesitation, there is nobody better! Rick is a professional who has the respect of all those that he works with. He understands all of the intricacies of buying and selling a house and provides thoughtful and timely guidance. But more importantly, Rick understands the human side and the stress associated with purchasing a home (not a house). His guidance and communication made us feel at ease as we made the important decisions in the process. We consider Rick a friend and know this relationship will continue into the future. Thanks for everything! Rob and KimRobert & Kimberly Whitty
Rick Weiner is an exceptional agent - he is personable, extremely knowledgeable about the market, responds immediately to calls/emails/texts and is absolutely delightful to work with. His advice and counsel are top notch and you know he is there to fully represent your interest - he exceeded our every expectation. Chuck & Cathy HillCharles & Catherine Hill
We have sold & bought our homes using Rick throughout the years. Our first home wasn’t on the market but Rick came to us with someone who had loved it & made us an offer we couldn’t refuse. Amazing!! Second home we bought through Rick, made it our dream home but since the market was doing well we decided it was a good time to downsize. Rick had it sold at the first showing along with a back up offer. Can’t top that!! Thank you Rick!!Margaret Dayharsh
I am client with over 50 years experience in the Ct real estate industry who appreciates the role that the broker/agent plays on both sides of a transaction. The Sotheby’s platform and Rick Weiner’s skill set are second to none for customers looking for professionals who simply get the transaction done.The BFF LLC
Rick does a great job. We wouldn’t think of going to anyone else!Gloria Bartolotta
"Good morning, Rick. The photo selections on the listing is perfect. Without a doubt, the description of our home is by far the best we've ever seen! This obviously came from your heart and touched us as it will others who read this. Thank you for taking the time and caring to make this special."Essex Resident
Rick Weiner is a good guy who facilitated our purchase. I would recommend him without hesitation.Thomas & Aurise Gallucci
Rick Weiner did an excellent representing our property and due to his intimate knowledge of our town guided us to an appropriate asking price.Herbert & Barbara Jamison
William Pitt Sotheby’s represented us on both selling our old house and buying our new house. Rick Weiner was our agent, and he represents everything a realtor should be: well informed, empathetic, and very professional. We could not be more pleased.William Gunther
Rick Weiner did a great job on both selling our existing home and purchasing a new one. His knowledge of the market and the industry is outstanding. This combined with his significant experience and hard work led to a sale at an above market price and purchase at a discount to market. The net result was a significant savings to us. He is also very responsive and always gets back to his clients quickly. Overall I rank Rick’s performance as a 10 on a scale of 1to 10.James & Joy Biggart
We worked with Rick Weiner for our house sale this past spring, beginning at the onset of COVID-19. Rick was absolutely stellar as our agent. His professionalism, accessibility and attentiveness, and extensive knowledge of and experience with the housing market made our process smooth and enjoyable, even during these strange and difficult times. We were happily surprised to have immediate interest once our home went on the market, due to Rick's wonderful documentation and detailed description of the house for the online listing. Once the offer was in hand, which was very fast, Rick guided us through all of the steps necessary to bring the sale to an expedient closing. We have bought and sold four homes, and worked with excellent agents along the way. Rick is a a true pro, and we highly recommend his services.Mary Hafeli
I would definitely recommend Rick WeinerChristine Hagen
Rick represented the seller when we bought our house in Essex 11 years ago and then represented us when we sold it this June. In both transactions he was honest, knowledgeable, fair and very responsive. I would recommend him highly. Peter Prichard, Essex CTPast Client
We feel so fortunate to have had the chance to work with Rick when we recently purchased our home in Niantic. His knowledge of the area and surrounding towns were a huge resource to us as we were less familiar with the location. He was also able to provide us many recommendations for local businesses to assist us with inspections, renovations, etc. Rick is the utmost professional and was instrumental in making a challenging process smooth. His approach, negotiation and influence, & persistence were invaluable to us. We look forward to working with Rick in the future and recommend him without reservation to anyone.
