  • “I have worked with Richard and Real Estate Executive Search for well over a decade now. Not only has Richard placed me in my past, but he has also found me the “best of the best” in the industry to work for me. Richard takes the time to learn my specific needs and does not stop until he delivers A+ candidates.  I am often torn between the top-notch candidates he sends my way as he takes time to carefully interview prior to sending over to me. I can count on quality every time from Richard and his team. I have used other recruiters in my past, but none come close to the professionalism and care I get with Richard. I highly recommend Real Estate Executive Search.”
