Richard inherited his passion for real property from his father who was an architect. He has always enjoyed looking at the various types of buildings and the walks of life that make up this great city that fill them. Richard grew up in the lovely Gold Coast of Long Island, but always longed to live in the city. He moved to Manhattan to attend NYU and has called New York his home for over twelve years. Two generations of Richard's family grew up in Brooklyn, and it is a great pleasure for him to have finally moved back home to Brooklyn six years ago and raise his daughter, another generation of his family in this enchanting borough. The city is Richard's hobby. He has explored it, either by bicycle or by car, and this has helped him learn about the various neighborhoods in which Ideal Properties operates. Richard looks forward to sharing his knowledge with his clients. He is often called upon by friends for a restaurant or bar recommendation and is humorously nicknamed "The Walking Zagat." In addition, He is always in search of a good playground or park to take his little one... Richard looks forward to helping other people find their home in Brooklyn.
