The Beginning

Richard was born in San Mateo at Mills Hospital, and at the age of 6 months, with an older sister in tow, the family moved to Saratoga in Santa Clara County. There was nothing but orchards and farms in those days with no sidewalks or street lights.  As Richard grew his appreciation for this great area and the out doors grew as well. Richard's father was in outside sales and his mother was a school teacher for the Cupertino School District retiring after 28 years of service!

After high school Richard attended DeAnza College for a year and then moved to Santa Cruz and spent another year at Cabrillo. Richard never did finish his college years however, with the opportunity to be self employed he ended up starting a retail business with a friend. and from there continued his education as a self employed entrepreneur from the mid 70"s to this current day. 

The Provider

Richard eventually started selling manufactured housing in 1983 when interest rates were at 18%, and in 1986 decided to go a head and get his real estate license. Richard is a full service Realtor which means that he is with you from the very start of a transaction to the very end of the transaction. If you are a first time buyer who needs hand holding Richard is there for you. And, if you are the savvy investor that needs information to make the right decision, Richard is that person too! Even though Santa Clara County is where Richard was raised he also services the San Mateo, Alameda, and Santa Cruz Counties as well! 

What Is Important

In all of Richard's years of sales he learned that the most important part of the services he provided had to do with "What Is Important To My Clients?" As he continued to ask the question over and over Richard would listen intently, and continue to ask open ended questions until he was able to understand all that he could to become an extension of his clients real estate needs and goals while representing them in the marketplace. At this point Richard noticed that the process also gave his clients the knowledge and peace of mind needed to make the right real estate decisions when the time presented itself and made sure their best interests were his first priority .

Besides Richard's real estate carrier he had also included fitness training for added balance to his life,  and has been certifided since 1994. Richard ran a fitness program for the San Jose Police Dept. for 6 years, and still to this day handles a small handfull of personal clients. Richard once described the experiece "I never did have children so this is extended family". 

Serving the community and giving back gives Richard joy as he builds relationships and trust. Whether it is finding a family a new home or helping someone live a healthy life.
