About Richard


Richard is one of Keller Williams Realty’s top producing real estate agents. He has sold over 1,200 homes valued at more than over $600,000,000, he heads one of the top Keller Williams teams Worldwide, and he consistently ranks in the top 0.1% of all Realtors nationwide.  As a native of Los Angeles, he is intimately familiar with the different neighborhoods and environs, and he expertly advises his clients of the right match for them.  The reasons for his success?  Hard work, superior market knowledge, an awesome team and a total domination of the internet market for real estate.  Richard has the tools to provide superior service to buyers and sellers, and he and his team help them along every step of their transaction.

In addition, one of his passions is advising many of his clients on investment properties.  Over 30% of his sales are for properties intended for rental or resale, and he has helped many clients develop a large portfolio of income-producing properties.

In the aftermath of the market crash, Richard was one of the few agents left standing – his bread and butter for many years was his expert handling of short sales and foreclosures.  While the market has recovered and very few sales these days are distressed, he remains the top agent to call on for selling these types of properties.

Richard’s high level of expertise has afforded him the honor of being a guest lecturer in real estate courses at UCLA Extension, School of Business, and Management & Legal Programs.  He has also had the privilege of teaching classes and leading seminars at Keller Williams offices throughout the country.

“Richard’s intimate knowledge of the market and his extensive network set him apart from other agents. His impeccable follow-up, and passion for representing his clients’ best interests make him the ideal partner. Richard has a proven track record of success, and I can’t imagine engaging in any transactions without his representation.” – William B.

“As one of Bank of America’s leading lending groups, we work with hundreds of agents. Richard consistently sets himself apart… Most importantly is his ability to “get the deal”. Richard’s clients consistently win properties in multiple offers, while many other potential borrowers we work with never get a property. I attribute this directly to his skill as an agent.” – Todd Seabold, BofA

“Richard did a fantastic job with our listing transaction… It was a complicated transaction because the property was in disrepair. At first, we listed it for $475,000 without any repairs. We got several offers in that price range, as Richard accurately predicted. But he then put the clients’ interest first in recommending we do $30,000 in repairs and relist it. We did that and ended up selling for $575,000. I always felt that Richard put his clients’ best interest first. He provided us with excellent advice and his local expertise was impressive. Above all, he was incredibly responsive – always getting back to me within minutes, including nights and weekends. I will highly recommend Richard.” – Spencer R.

“I worked with Richard to recently buy two foreclosure properties. He really got us the deals we were looking for. These properties has multiple and offers, and Richard helped us beat out the other offers and still pick up both properties for the best possible price. After we opened escrow, he got us a $32,000 price reduction on the first and a $5,000 credit on the second!” – Nate P.

“I want to thank Richard for the excellent service he delivered on the sale of my property. While I thought it might be on the market for several months, Richard got us multiple offers right away. Richard’s professionalism, persistence at solving minor problems, his knowledge of the market, and all of his time, energy and efforts were greatly appreciated.” – Melody T.

“After many months of house hunting on my own, I finally made the smart decision to work with a Realtor…Richard helped me to avoid a number of pitfalls when looking at houses that otherwise appeared right at first glance. It was clear he didn’t just want to get me into a house. He wanted me to find a house that would work for me both financially and practically.” – Dietrich S.
