Raised in the Silicon Valley, Rick went through the local school systems - graduated from Fremont High School in Sunnyvale, went to De Anza College in Cupertino, and graduated with a degree in Business & Corporate Financial Management from San Jose State University. From there he went on to proudly serve his country in the United States Marine Corps, as a Landing Support Specialist. Upon completion of his military service Rick made a full transition into Real Estate, with the goal of building a reputation for unparalleled client service and becoming a trusted source for clients to confidently refer their family, friends, and colleagues. A distinguishing mark of Rick's service is that he treats every client as a top priority. He works closely and directly with clients and their families from start to finish. Thanks to the support from local residents like yourselves, he has successfully helped numerous individuals and families throughout Sunnyvale and surrounding communities and would love to do the same for you.
One of Rick's specialties involves working with seniors and their families. After witnessing the time, energy, and mental strain it took to transition his grandmother’s 30+ years of belongings, as well as the added responsibility and stress it placed on his mom and aunt, he realized there had to be a better option. That's when he made the decision to become a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) and began vetting and partnering with dozens of helpful senior resources from movers to care providers to legal advisors - making the process of packing 30+ years of belongings and moving much easier. Today Rick has a well-established network of helpful resources to assist his clients from start to finish. In 2018 he co-founded and currently leads the Silicon Valley Professional Advisory Council (formerly: Silicon Valley Estate Planning Group Network), a beneficial resource for clients. Whether his clients are retiring and moving away, downsizing, transitioning into a senior care community, or coordinating a trust sale he has them covered.
With a passion for health & fitness, Rick can often be found exercising or in the kitchen preparing a healthy meal. When he's not helping clients he's usually spending time with family, friends, and his community of faith.
