Rich is originally from Chicago, and he grew up in the Midwest. He lived in Breckenridge for about five years while he went to school at Colorado Mountain College. After school, he ended up moving back to Chicago for some opportunities where he met his significant other and decided that Colorado was the place to call home.
The allure of the real estate industry was what prompted Rich to get into it. If you look at any millionaire, any billionaire, they all have a real-estate hardware portfolio. That, and the freedom to work for himself, that’s what brought him into the business and his clients are what have kept him in the business. He noticed a tremendous need from clients for great agents that care about them, care about the process, and don’t just see them as a transaction. Rich believes with every part of his being, that business is built on long-lasting relationships.
