Rick has always believed, as well as taken a lot of pride in being a solution provider, resource, and connector. He has used these abilities for over 20 years to help his clients with their real estate needs and more. With the current state of the real estate market, there have been more opportunities than ever where Rick's skills have been an asset to his clients.
Prior to becoming a Realtor®, Rick worked for a large fortune 100 company for over 17 years, first in Operations Management and later on in Project Re-Engineering. Those years provided Rick with the experience to always "think outside the box" to help improve processes and procedures, and resolve issues. It was during those years in Corporate America that Rick was introduced to real estate investing and developed a passion for it. Rick eventually bought and sold properties from single-family homes to condos, both locally and out of state, and currently still owns a few properties in the city. Once leaving the corporate world, Rick decided to take on real estate full time and share his knowledge and passion with others.
Rick enjoys networking and introducing people to each other. Rick has been able to build a reputation among his peers and contacts as a "go-to" guy, even in areas unrelated to Real Estate. The reason for this is his strong network of solid contacts that he surrounds himself with. Not necessarily being the subject matter expert, but knowing the people who are the experts is the key. This network allows Rick to be able to handle all facets of Real Estate. By leveraging Rick’s network, others have benefited from it as well.
Growing up in diverse neighborhoods of Chicago's north side from his grade school years, and then all the way up to his college years at Loyola University, Rick experienced all the culture and diversity the City had to offer. He still continues to enjoy the City even though he has lived and raised his family in Lake County since being married. Rick enjoys time with his family whether watching movies, eating out, shopping, vacationing, or just plain hanging out. He has taught his children the importance of relationships, loyalty, helping people and to “be not part of the problem, but to be part of the solution”. Rick hopes that his children will embrace the same beliefs, and pass them on to future generations.
