Richard's love affair with real estate began at a very young age. The highlight of his early summers was the annual family trip to visit his great grandmother's six sisters, who had married men all along the eastern seaboard, stretching from Maine to Georgia. The diversity of their homes caused him to marvel. Experiencing these houses was the best part of the trip. As a young adult, he began buying and selling real estate. The challenge of finding a new home or investment property offered a welcome diversion from his first career in the entertainment industry. After earning his BA in Art and Architectural History and MFA in Theatrical Design, he spent over 20 years in the entertainment industry designing for stage, television and film.
Succumbing at last to his first love of houses, Richard decided to focus on the Pasadena metropolitan area. Pasadena and the surrounding communities offer an unparalleled number of significant properties within reasonable proximity of all that Los Angeles has to offer.
He consistently remains among the top agents in his office and credits this accomplishment to his well-honed people skills. Richard believes the ability to communicate is paramount in business and that in real estate, as in any industry, one must express ideas clearly while carefully listening to the needs of others. Hearing is not enough, one must really listen. His ability to do that has contributed to his success.
Richard's commitment to clients goes beyond the search for or marketing of their homes. Offering referrals for restoration or remodeling, helping with research in making artistic decisions and making people familiar with the resources their community has to offer are only a few of the ongoing services that make a difference to a client.
His belief in giving back to the community has led him to become involved with All Saints Episcopal Church, the Pasadena Playhouse and the Pasadena Symphony. His dedication to historic preservation has led him to become a member of Pasadena Heritage, Altadena Heritage and the Los Angeles Conservancy.
