Under the tutelage of great mentors and applying his relentless work ethic, Rich’s sales team achieved the distinction of “Top Sales Team.”

With the market downturn of 2007, Rich seized the opportunity to transition into non-traditional real estate. He quickly established himself as a HUD and REO expert in the Metro-Atlanta area. Rich frequently appeared as a distinguished speaker at various investment seminars. Rich taught countless investors the basics of building wealth in real estate while also sharing his secrets to success for winning bids on HUD and REO properties.

Rich earned his Associate Brokers license in 2008 and currently serves as Qualifying Broker for Vestlet Realty LLC and Vestlet Property Management LLC. Along with his broker duties, Rich has achieved the distinction of “Top Sales Agent” for Vestlet Realty LLC the past seven years.

His career closed transactions places Rich in the top 1% among more than 25,000 agents in the Metro-Atlanta area since 2005.

With the stabilization of the market over the past 18 months, Rich now splits his focus between representing buyers and sellers of traditional properties while also marketing properties for the three Georgia asset managers representing the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
