As Assistant Manager to the Sotheby’s International Realty - Los Feliz Brokerage, Rick Yohon is involved in running the day to day operations of the highest selling office in the area. With over $316 million in sales personally, over 315 closings through 2015 and over 16 years of experience, Rick has knowledge that only comes from doing the work. Being an effective realtor requires a broad range of knowledge including contract work, improvements, neighborhoods, advertising and photography. Rick specializes in single-family homes, condominiums and income properties and believes that the common thread throughout every deal is that every seller and buyer wants to be treated with fairness and respect.
Much of Rick's business comes from repeat business and referrals from satisfied clients. A full-time realtor who is committed to client service and hands-on work, Rick is accessible by cell phone and believes in empowering clients with knowledge and proof. Possessing an interest and motivation in his job that only comes from a passion for Los Angeles and the unique and beautiful housing that the city is renowned for, Rick recognizes that each property has something special and believes that it is his job to effectively communicate the positive attributes. He feels lucky to have found an occupation that he truly cherishes and enjoys. In addition, he keeps very close track of the inventory in Los Feliz, Silver Lake and the Hollywood Hills. Rick believes it is important to not only sell a home but also sell a location and an area.
Realtors who can most effectively represent properties are those with knowledge of comparable homes in the area who work at a local real estate company. For those considering selling a home, Rick can show a tailor-made plan including agent and Sunday open houses and extensive internet advertising. Well-priced homes still don't spend much time on the market, and the best way to ensure top dollar is market exposure. For those considering buying a home, he can help clients buy the right home in an uncertain market. Rick keeps very close tabs on new listings and has the ability to furnish listings right when they come onto the MLS, and sometimes even before they appear on the MLS. Rick has a degree in business administration from the University of Notre Dame and has a previous background in management and film and television production.
