Richard Bartholomew

A native of Australia, Richard launched his real estate career more than 25 years ago and quickly became one of the top-producing luxury agents in Sydney. Growing up in a family of real estate developers, he took an interest in real estate at a young age and opened his own office within just a few years of earning his license.

Seeking to further his career, Richard brought his entrepreneurial spirit and real estate know-how abroad to the luxury market of Beverly Hills, establishing himself as one of the top-producing agents in the area for the next 13 years. In 2009, he moved to the desert area and continued his successful real estate career with Sotheby’s International Real Estate, including a year selling luxury real estate in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Richard’s business acumen and reputation for expertly navigating complex deals has earned him a loyal clientele based heavily on repeat business and referrals. He prides himself on his integrity, professionalism and exceptional closing skills, going above and beyond to ensure his clients are satisfied with every aspect of their real estate experience and that they enjoy themselves in the process.

With experience in luxury real estate around the world, from his hometown of Sydney to Beverly Hills and Puerto Vallarta, Richard brings his stellar reputation and proven negotiating skills to The Agency, with a focus on high-end properties in the desert area.

A resident of Rancho Mirage, Richard enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, European automobiles, and visits to his home in Puerto Vallarta. He contributes to Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC), GLAAD, and Family Equality Council.
