A real estate professional highly respected by his clients and colleagues alike for almost a decade, Richard has based his success on in-depth market knowledge as a result of his more than 35 years living in San Diego; negotiation, contract, marketing and communication skills fine-tuned as CEO of a successful company; and the practical and conceptual advantages of being a real estate investor himself.
Professional diversity combined with richness of personal experiences produce a strong, effective Realtor® capable of thinking outside the box, creative solutions and empathetic communication. Richard’s background as business CEO, fire department battalion chief, best selling and award-winning author, real estate investor, single father have done just that. In fact, his is a level of success that was apparent nearly a decade ago when his first twelve months as an agent culminated in a Rookie of the Year award.
A Realtor’s success — though it can be based on communication, creativity, marketing skill and business acumen – It must be grounded in a sense of place. For Richard, that place is San Diego. A resident for over three decades, and a passionate champion of the area’s beaches, mountains, weather and people, he considers the area to be a wonderful place to live, work, enjoy life and raise a family. Not only does he gain from San Diego’s communities and neighborhoods, he gives back. For example, his coffee company donates to the nationwide Firefighter Cancer Support Network, and has contributed to the local elementary schools, the San Diego Burn Institute, Chelsea’s Light Foundation, and numerous additional non-profit organizations.
Ultimately, it is Richard’s sincere gratitude, and his belief that home buyers and sellers deserve the best experience and outcome possible that continue to impress his distinguished clientele. His work ethic and level of integrity, as well as his comprehensive expertise, set him apart.
