Richard has operated in the property and home finance sector for over a decade combined, working in both residential and investment sectors. He enjoys a challenge and relishes complex cases, but ultimately, he gets the most satisfaction from helping his clients achieve their goals. A positive outcome for clients is what gets him up in the morning!


Richard is passionate about spending time outdoors, enjoying all mother nature has to offer. Living in Cornwall, he considers himself blessed to have some world class coastline and beaches on his doorstep, and when Richard isn’t working, he tries to take full advantage of it, (usually with his Labradoodle, Juno)!
