I frequently use the Réti, it's almost a signature white opening for me. I was writing quite the elaborate response last night, but my computer decided to do a spontaneous reboot
I searched through my games to find some advance variations and prepared the links, this time you'll have to use the search yourself, or provide me with better pc-cooling (since I suspect that to be the source of the reboot). If only the gamesexplorer got updated
So I'll condense my response to:
1. Nf3, d5 2. c4, d4 3. e3 is sound, but I like to develop along Réti lines, a quick castle (g3, Bg2, 0-0) and prepare the pawn push (e4). I even had succes with Nb1-d2-e4. Personally I don't feel 2 ..., d4 makes my position cramped, just be quick, your opponent has to defend d4 and that is some valuable tempo. The bishop on g2 is looking straigth through the pawn wall, the black squared bishop is free to roam kingside, just put pressure on your opponent.
The link provided by synesis portrays a good example of the pawn push. Oh, and never fear the rim for your knight(s) in the Réti!
