About Me

Professional Experience    
After a stellar career as a professional alpine ski racer and coach, Rick initiated his passion in the real estate business during the late 1980's while at the elite destination of Northstar, California. Rick rapidly built a sound business selling vacation homes, income property and undeveloped land in a very competitive resort environment. Returning to the Silicon Valley where he was born and raised, Rick was eagerly hired to represent Contempo Realty in their top sales producing office. While there, he was a consistent top producer and continued to expand his career exclusively representing client requirements for acquisition and disposition of residential, income and multi-unit properties. He has since become a recognized USAA relocation specialist, representing companies such as Intel, Cisco Systems and Compaq computers.

Professional Philosophy     
Rick's career is founded on strong real estate methodologies and impeccable communication standards. "I bring to you many years of invaluable experience in marketing and acquiring real estate. I will work diligently for you to get the results you expect. Your real estate needs will be handled with professional care and personal concern with a commitment to exceed your expectations."
Presently, Rick has implemented the latest in high-tech marketing tools into customizing specific marketing plans for each client, including virtual home tours, use of digital cameras and visual technologies plus the interface of special software to track and manage your everyday escrow needs. Additionally, Rick is furthering his education by attending various real estate seminars and contemporary marketing and sales classes.
