Richard Baumel’s career began as a licensed realtor while in college. He then tried his hand in a few other professions but came right back to his original love of real estate. It feels so good to be back doing what he loves!
At an early age, Richard was fascinated with real estate - the architecture, feelings of different neighborhoods and interior design. Spending many weekend mornings at tag sales in the Five Towns, with his mother, Richard was exposed to many properties and found himself more interested in the homes than the items for sale.
Richard’s goal is to help you meet your real estate goals. Whether you are buying, renting or selling, please tell Richard your expectations, he will listen to you and get the job done.
Richard goes the extra mile for every client he works with, which is why he enjoys ongoing referrals and repeat business. His own expertise and knowledge are complemented by the incredible resources at Douglas Elliman, which includes the best marketing in the business, worldwide exposure via the company’s Knight Frank affiliation, and the capacity to serve a wide range of local, domestic and international buyers and sellers.
Richard has lived in many local areas - Far Rockaway, Atlantic Beach, Long Beach, Lynbrook, Cedarhurst, Manhattan and Woodmere - since he was a little boy. Richard lives with his wife and son in Woodmere. When he is not working, he enjoys time on his boat fishing the local waters and tending to his garden.
