Richard has combined his life-long love for skiing, biking and fly fishing in Aspen into his career of finding the perfect vacation home for his clients since 2005. After a successful career in medical device sales in Chicago and Denver, he chose to share his passion for life in the Roaring Fork Valley. Previously as the listing broker for the Snowmass Club Residences, Storied Places Sanctuary at Snowmass Club and Four Seasons Residence Club Vail, Richard brokered pre-construction developer units, resale condominiums and luxury fractional ownership as well as short-term and long-term leases. His market knowledge and diligence has been acknowledged by his clients with multiple real estate transactions and by referrals since joining Joshua & Co. in 2011.
Richard's family purchased a vacation home at the base of Aspen Mountain in 1967 so he learned to ski with the legendary instructors Frog, Toad and Lizard at Buttermilk Ski Area. Just like skiing the four mountains of Aspen Snowmass and fly fishing the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers throughout the year, the real estate market is an ever-changing landscape. Clients with busy lives want to communicate on their terms and Richard is adept at listening to his buyers and sellers. Just as Douglas Elliman is pioneering the latest technologies to disseminate accurate market data, Richard communicates openly so his clients are confident in their real estate transaction.

Client Testimonial: "Richard gets it. I met him years ago, never pushy, until its time to finish the deal. We have done two together and both were very successful. He has become a great friend. I would not do real estate in the Aspen Snowmass area without him." Joseph D.
Client Testimonial: "Richard is the consummate professional. He provided my family with excellent, detailed, and thoughtful customer service and support throughout our last two real estate purchases.
