Richard's passion for the real estate business began early , when he accompanied his father, a premier home builder and developer in Sarnia, to his many new home sites during the 60's and 70's. It was an exciting time for home ownership in Canada and Richard learned about the industry literally from its foundation.
At 21, Richard obtained his real estate license , gravitating naturally to new home sales and then resale. Sarnia's vast petrochemical industrial base afforded a rich, corporate relocation environment in which he developed appraisal and negotiation skills. Four years later, recruited to open and manage the new Royal Trust (later Royal LePage) branches in Sarnia and Chatham.

Later, he managed Century 21 in Oakville, increasing its success to the top 21 offices in Canada during very competitive times.
