Luxury Homes and Real Estate - Sotheby’s International Realty

Greater Los Angeles, Southern California

Ruben Rivera began his real estate career in 2001. Early on he learned the ins and outs of the market and became experienced in all of its cycles, and as a result he is exceptionally adept at navigating local trends. Throughout his career he has listed and sold a variety of property types in the greater Los Angeles area including single-family homes, land, condominiums and multi-unit income properties. Ever vigilant in negotiating a timely and smooth transaction, he thrives best when assuring and serving the interests of his clients. Whether investing in their future or downsizing to take advantage of current market climates, his clients have continually benefited from his Certified Negotiator (CN) designation. Clients and colleagues alike find his attention to detail, caring approach and engaging character an invaluable instrument in their dealings with him. As a result, many repeat and long-term relationships have been forged.

An East Coast native, Ruben has called Los Angeles home for over 20 years. Ever ready to keep himself stimulated personally, he has participated in several marathons and is glad to call his Labrador Tasha his most loyal running partner to date. He attended Los Angeles City College with honors in psychology and founded the first LGBT club, which still flourishes on campus today. In his spare time he takes gourmet cooking classes and volunteers for local Los Angeles area charities. A member of the Kadampa Buddhist center and an avid yoga practitioner, he uses the tools learned in these lifestyle choices to apply an acutely focused yet Zen approach to his real estate practice.
