Ricarda Olander brings a diligent and cosmopolitan work ethic to The Agency. She prides herself on transparent, proactive communication and an unrelenting dedication to achieving the best results for distinguished and discerning clientele. Based in Beverly Hills, she serves throughout the Westside of Los Angeles, focusing primarily on Brentwood, Holmby Hills and Pacific Palisades.
Born and raised in Austria near the Bavarian border, Ricarda grew up speaking multiple languages and connecting with people from around the world. At university, she achieved a degree in International Studies before entering the professional world as a VIP Client Manager for Audi and Red Bull. In this role she learned firsthand how to quickly adapt to solve problems, stay calm under pressure and establish meaningful relationships. These skills naturally led her to a career in real estate. After working as an agent in Vienna, she fell in love with the business and soon relocated to the United States.
Guided by the motto “Two steps forward, zero steps back,” Ricarda passionately pursued her love of real estate in Los Angeles. While assisting a top-producing team, she helped oversee over $100M in transactions in a single year while gaining extensive insight into the local market and networking with an elite class of buyers, sellers and investors, including professional athletes and entertainment industry icons.
Outside of real estate, Ricarda and her husband, Danish jewelry designer Jannik Olander, enjoy an active Southern California lifestyle, including walks with their English bulldog, Daisy, and hosting friends for brunches and dinner parties. She actively supports Zoe Church LA as well as Wings for Life, a foundation established by Red Bull for the research and treatment of spinal cord injuries.
