Professional Experience

I have been a successful full time REALTOR since 1988 who specializes in knowledge of the southern Peninsula and western Santa Clara County areas. I have been working at Coldwell Banker Los Altos (formerly Cornish & Carey) since 1992.
Personal Information
I have been a resident of the area since 1976, having moved here from Michigan. I have been very involved in the figure skating community over the years as a local organizer of figure skating events. In 1996 I served on the Executive Board for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in San Jose. I served as Director of Operations for this massive event and was responsible for security, communications and transportation. I also served as a Committee Chairman at the 1992 World Figure Skating Championships in Oakland and the 1991 Skate America Competition also in Oakland.
Professional Philosophy

Referrals and repeat clients make up almost 90 percent of my business. That says a lot about the service I provide which is first class all the way. I am a great believer in personalized service and do everything I can, and often much more than expected, in helping my clients. I have gone so far as to FLY to my relocating clients location with closing paperwork so they would not have to miss work to fly in just to sign off on their home purchase. I will also help client''''s co-ordinate major repairs and remodeling prior to selling their home. I consider myself to be a trustworthy individual and have no problem trusting my clients in return. Supremely patient, I like to educate my clients and works with them on understanding their budget concerns before we start looking at property. I am not a high-pressure REALTOR. I like working with people so I don''''t mind spending extra time with them. I just want to make sure they make a good decision and one that''''s right for them. That is not a quick process and requires patience.

Ratings & Reviews

We have bought and sold seven homes, and Ric is by far the best realtor we have worked with. He is extremely knowledgable, focused but easy going, and customer-oriented. Before we even signed a contract with Ric, he brought us moving boxes and helped us dismantle a huge piece of furniture and hauled it to the city dump for us. Ric offered sound advice throughout the process that really paid off. One valuable piece of advice was to have a professional inspection done before we listed our home for sale. This turned up a couple of items that we were immediately able to address, and when we had a buyer, the sale proceeded quickly without contingencies. Ric was able to explain all of the real estate forms and documents in plain English. He politely kept us on schedule without being pushy. Rick made the whole process painless for us, and we are extremely happy with the sale price.

Sold a home in 2015 in San Jose, CA.

We have used Ric to help us buy one home, sell the same home six years later, buy my son's home and sell my father's home. In all cases he was extremely helpful, very knowledgeable, professional and easy to communicate with during all aspects of the sales. His expertise is outstanding and he is always willing to find ways to adapt to your specific needs and issues. We recommend him without reservation.   More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.875M in Redwood City, CA.

Ric found us a house that we love, and worked very hard to help us through every step of the process. We relied heavily on his expertise, and were very glad to find such a trustworthy agent.
