Richard earned his B.S. in Finance from Northeastern University. His primary view of real estate is from an investment standpoint. He has found this attribute reassuring to all clients. Rental, home purchase, and those building a new real estate portfolio encounter a knowledgeable person who brings order to the chaos.

Those who are adding to an existing portfolio, need assistance with identifying overvalued holdings and marketing for disposal, or determining when, if and how much equity to use from current holdings to finance new acquisition find his strong comprehension of market mechanics, the price discovery process, and financing options and structure, to be attributes that set him apart from the field. Other areas of interest include portfolio loans, Real Estate options (put and call) and pricing of such contracts as well as using receivables (leases or cash flow) as a collateral alternative.

The son of a New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Member, Broker & Trader, he first worked on Wall St. at the American Stock Exchange (AMEX) as a "gopher" at age 16; since then, brokerage has been in his blood.

Richard has worked for organizations such as the Harvard University Endowment, The New York Board of Trade (NYBOT) and for himself as an independent futures and options trader with an emphasis on interest rate linked markets. In September 2008, Richard decided it was time for a change and left the securities business. After 18 months, this contrarian opportunity seeker saw Real Estate as the ideal niche to leverage his background and ultimately pursued his license. His financial acumen while valuable in this role, is not as important as the knowledge that rock solid relationship building is what it is all about; always reciprocal of loyalty and always looking to build a new bridge, these attributes are appreciated, and keep his clients coming back.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Kenmore, Boston, MA.

Richard is exactly what you want in a Realtor highly knowledgeable, accommodating and persistent. He knows the ins and outs of the entire process including mortgage, closing and local codes and regulations. What stood out to us was Richard's availability and how quickly he returned calls, texts, or emails. He was always there for us. We recently bought a condo in the Fenway area of Boston, where properties sell very quickly. We were from out of State and didn't realize how fast properties sold in this area. He helped us put in an offer very quickly after an open house which took place only a day or two after the listing come on the market. He negotiated favorable terms to us and the seller in competitive multiple bid situation. He greatly assisted the seller who represented herself and was pretty overwhelmed. We were very luck to purchase our property in the neighborhood we wanted, for a fair price, and in a very timely matter. We most likely would be renting right now if it wasn't for Richard. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Boston market. He also assisted us in subletting the apartment for 4 months, as were not able to move until about 6 months after closing.  More Less

Bought a home in 2013.

Richard combines a deep knowledge of the Boston market with common sense and an intuition on where to pursue and where the market is headed.

Richard has expertise in Jamaica Plain, Kenmore, Allston, Brighton, Chestnut Hill & Brookline. I have purchased two properties with him and they will prove to be good investments.  More Less
