With a passion for architecture and marketing, going into the real estate industry was the natural path for Rich to take.

His career highlights are numerous, but he is incredibly honored to have represented some of the desert’s most distinguished properties, including former Frank Sinatra Residence, architectural homes by Donald Wexler, AIA William Krisel, AIA William Cody, and the Linea Development, the coveted collection of fourteen minimalist homes located in South Palm Springs designed by AIA Anthony Poon.

Clients appreciate his easy-going nature paired with his straightforward approach, driven by market data best to advise his clients on the current real estate market. In large part, what sets him apart from the competition is his ability to utilize social media and his global network of top luxury agents in key markets to find unique properties for his buyers and record-breaking sales for his sellers.
In his free time, he spends time with his wife Tanya, whom he has known since high school, and they just recently welcomed their first son Pierce! Into the world, along with their two French bulldogs, Alfie and Leo. Giving back to their community is essential to Rich and Tanya, who get involved with local charities every year, including playing Santa to ten local families in need every Christmas.
