Of the many lessons taught to Rick by his mother, the one that continues to guide his professional career today is a simple one: do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Born in Los Angeles, and raised in Beverly Hills and the Westside, Rick has an intimate knowledge of the local landscape and enjoys showing clients the ins and outs of the area. Whether it's the best place to have french toast for breakfast, meet for power lunches, or simply to see the beautiful sunsets, Rick can show you.

After graduating from USC, Rick got his professional start in the mailrooms of CAA and William Morris Agency, where he learned the various aspects of the entertainment business. Rick started his real estate career when he joined his father in New York City to start building their family business in commercial real estate. He learned to operate and manage an office building on Park Avenue, along with the intricacies of negotiating leases. After conquering the fast-paced New York real estate market, Rick moved to South Florida where he owned and managed 12 commercial office buildings. Over the course of twenty years, he negotiated leases totaling hundreds of thousands of square feet and negotiated the purchase and sale of office buildings upwards of several hundred million dollars.

After sixteen years on the East Coast, Rick returned to his hometown of Los Angeles, successfully translating his commercial real estate experience into working with both buyers and sellers in the residential marketplace.

Rick’s love of helping people achieve their personal goals doesn’t stop at real estate. Fitness and exercise continue to play a big role in his life. As a certified Pilates instructor, Rick loves to lend fitness expertise to anyone who is interested, finding great moments of clarity while working out and learning a great deal of humility helping people transform their lives through fitness. It’s a valuable perspective that Rick brings to every real estate client.

Rick’s mother’s advice continues to guide his success today: do unto others as you would have them to unto you. While this sentiment is simple, it serves as the foundation on which he has built a business transforming the lives of the people who put their faith in him. Let Rick show you his Los Angeles.
