Ricardo’s keen eye and acquired taste for real estate and customer service began developing at a very early age. The first few years of his life were spent abroad in many parts of Asia, where his mother and father had a thriving interior design firm and custom furniture warehouse in Jakarta, Indonesia. His father being a renowned designer in the field (among others) and his mother creating immaculate settings in prominent homes around the world. Ricardo was able to comprehend not only the process of making the one of a kind pieces that were to be placed in such exquisite homes, but as well the value of the homes themselves and the deep connection they had to their owners.
Upon arriving in the United States, in Beverly Hills, California the realization of the vast, competitive and awe-inspired real estate market came into focus. Working alongside his family in their showroom on Melrose Ave., Ricardo was able to see the beautiful homes of many celebrities, executives and business owners from the Hollywood Hills to Santa Monica. This not only was the kindle to the fire of the desire to own his own home, but also to help others attain the dream of ownership as well. One thing became certain; Real Estate was not only one's haven for peace, tranquility, family and love, but also a physical form of security, equity, wealth management and upward mobility.
As the years went on Ricardo's professional career went through a few metamorphoses. Working as a chef in Hell's Kitchen, pursuing design in his father's footsteps and the fashion industry for many years, but the idea of real estate remained in his mind constantly until one day he successfully attained his license and began helping clients with their dreams of home ownership.
After a few years in the industry Ricardo has become well versed in his ability to truly listen to clients and make the rigorous process of home buying and selling less stressful yet successful. Also applying the confidence and comfort of knowing that the process is being handled correctly and diligently. Now nestled in the industry’s behemoth luxury brand Douglas Elliman there is no avenue that is unavailable in the world, and nothing to stop Ricardo from making all your home ownership dreams come true.
