As an integral part of the Oldham Group, Richard offers incredible sales and client service experience combined with an unparalleled work ethic. A native Bay Area resident, Richard grew up in Mountain View before relocating to the east coast to attend Marymount Manhattan College in New York City. There he studied marketing and worked at a public relations firm specializing in event planning and client relations.
Richard returned to the Bay Area and began a successful career in sales and client services for multiple luxury retail brands, including Saks Fifth Avenue and Louis Vuitton. Known for anticipating client needs and professional discretion, Richard served as a Ritz Carlton partner, performing as their personal shopper for high-profile members.
Richard began his real estate career at Intero and assisted on all things client-facing. Once recruited to Compass, he quickly worked his way up and helped to build an 8-person team. Responsible for preparing listings, showings, social media posts, and marketing materials, Richard established an incredible foundation of knowledge before becoming an agent himself. Richard's long history in sales and luxury, combined with his attention to detail and ability to thrive in fast-paced environments, enhances his momentum as an agent.
During his free time, Richard indulges in his personal passions of travel and music. He is also a fitness enthusiast, often found running on the Bay Area trails and working out with friends at various boutique studios.
"Most wonderful, capable and efficient team ever that I have met and worked with. They are the most caring team ever! As a recently single woman, they were the support team that I needed to make it through this process. This was not my first real estate transaction, but it was my most challenging. They deserve 15 stars not five for their negotiating skills."
"Richard has been working with us for over 2 yrs on both the buying and selling side. My husband and I owned a few properties in the bay area, and we are glad that we trusted him as our agent. He is extremely professional, and responsive. We also feel that Richard has become a close friend and a home expert that we can turn to for many of our needs."
"Richard is everything you could ever want in an agent—dedicated, resourceful and has the unique ability to have a true understanding of what we were looking for in a home. We have been so impressed with all of the excellent opportunities he’s presented to us, both on and off market, which ultimately helped us land the perfect home for an amazing price. Richard made the process so smooth and we are so very grateful for all of this incredible efforts from start to finish. We have found our forever agent for all of our real estate needs!"
All said, the Oldhams together make the Oldham group what it is, a loving, fun filled environment with a team dedicated to providing excellent service and expertise on every real estate transaction. But above all, they are a team of kind, generous people who sincerely want to help.
