The Personality

A lifelong San Francisco Bay Area resident with an expansive knowledge of the ever-changing regional real estate market, Rick’s expertise and fierce negotiating skills are matched by a personality that puts clients at ease. His extensive background in multiple facets of the business, from residential to commercial sales, leasing, financing, property management and development, enables him to confidently advise clients on a broad range of real estate needs.

Known for his tenacity and diehard dedication, Rick has earned the respect of his colleagues and clients. He has been ranked a Top 10 team in San Francisco for years running and was recruited by the #1 team at Sotheby’s globally before going on to become a founding agent at Compass San Francisco.

The only thing that makes him happier than wins for the Giants, Warriors, or 49ers is when he helps a client reach their personal real estate goals. Most of all spending time with his wife Katie, daughter Vivienne, and son Crue.

Rapidly rising home prices and interest rates, along with a slowing economy, conspired to cool the nation's housing market in June, resulting in an almost 2% increase in the number of homes listed for sale. This is the first month that housing inventory has increased year over year since July 2019 (pre-pandemic).

The median home-sale price in the US rose 11.2 % in June, but it was the lowest year-over-year increase in roughly two years.

Due to the decrease in competition, homebuyers are often able to make less risky offers that avoid waiving protections such as home inspections and appraisal contingencies.

An unidentified buyer has paid the full $29 million asking price for the San Francisco penthouses where former Secretary of State George Shultz entertained politicians and diplomats.

The penthouses are 10,000 SF+, with 20-foot-high glass walls, two double-height living areas with circular staircases, many libraries and offices, wrap-around terraces, six bedrooms, seven full and three half baths. There is no other property in the world like this one.

The purchase price is the highest known for a San Francisco condo residence 🤑

According to a new National Association of Realtors research, the vast majority (71%) of the $8.2 trillion in housing wealth generated over this time period belonged to high-income households, while middle-income households acquired $2.1 trillion.

Despite the fact that home prices dropped by about 30% during the Great Recession, home prices have risen at such a rate that a homeowner who purchased a home just five years ago would have accumulated $146,200 in housing wealth. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported double-digit increases in the median single-family existing-home sales price in more than two-thirds of the 183 metro areas it surveyed, as mortgage rates remain low and housing availability continues to plummet.
