It began as a fishing trip to Cabo with a friend and, within a year, Rick happily traded a successful career as a real estate Broker in Northern Virginia and Washington, DC for the 350 days of sunshine, natural beauty, friendly people and lifestyle of Los Cabos.
Shortly after graduating high school, Rick joined Indy Team McLaren as a chassis mechanic, watching his driver, Johnny Rutherford, win the Indy championship in 1974. Following that, having been one of the youngest ever to achieve the Professional Ski Instructors Association’s full certification, he moved to Vail to continue his other passion, skiing. A few years later, Rick accepted a friend’s invitation in Clearwater, Florida to become a boating instructor at a yacht club and later started a landscaping/construction firm. Missing the change of seasons and snow, he sold his firm in 1987 and moved to Northern Virginia starting another landscape/construction firm. Seeking a new challenge, he sold that firm and in 1996 began his career in real estate.
Rick successfully completed the National REALTORS Association courses: Graduate of REALTOR’S Institute (GRI), Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS), Council of Real Estate Brokers (CRB), Resort and Second Property Specialist (RSPS), Certified Negotiation Expert, (CNE).
Rick has served as mentor to numerous beginning agents as well as a trainer for several firms. With hundreds of completed transactions under his belt, he quickly realized his niche in real estate was destined to continue in the Los Cabos area. “My reputation has been built upon my professionalism, honesty, integrity and strong ethics.”
