Richard’s commitment to family values extends beyond his personal life, as he has created a true family affair within his brokerage. His children, Chelsea and Jon, were inspired by their father’s success and decided to pursue a career in mortgage brokering, joining the team and becoming valuable assets to the business. With Richard’s guidance and mentorship, Chelsea and Jon have been with the brokerage for many years and have plans to eventually take over when (or if) Richard ever decides to retire (although we all know he’s a mortgage lifer!). The employees of the brokerage have also become part of the family, many of them being with the company for over 30 years.
Outside of work, Richard loves to travel with his wife Janet. They’re both avid golfers and spend their summers at their cottage in Wasaga Beach with family and friends. Richard is also a big boating enthusiast and can often be found cruising the waterways.
All in all, Richard is a well-respected mortgage expert who knows how to get things done. With his knowledge, experience, and commitment to client satisfaction, it’s no wonder he’s built such a successful business. He’s the mortgage maestro you want leading your team.
