Being the grandchild of 4 immigrant Italian grandparents, Rick was born in Rochester, New York and grew up in a very close-knit family. After a brief stint in California, Rick finally wound up in Colorado by attending and graduating from Colorado State University in Fort Collins. From that point, Colorado was his home forever.
Loving the beauty and serenity of the mountains, driving thru the mountains to enjoy the views became a favorite past-time. Rick and his wife Patty have been married for over 26+ years and live in the eastern part of town in Reunion. They have 2 children and 2 grandchildren.
After a long career in the restaurant industry, Rick finally decided to pursue his passion in Real Estate in 2000. Starting as a part-time investor, he realized the real estate industry could do things "just a bit better" and he went on to make that his mission. Prior to the founding of Rhino Realty Pros, he was a single agent learning the skills and competencies of a top producer. Rhino Realty Pros was then founded on the premise of developing agents to a higher standard than the rest and helping them to produce to levels with services that exceed above the expectations of our clients.
Over the years, Rick became a Certified Home Seller Advisor and a Certified Home Buyer Advisor. He is a member of the Metro Denver, Colorado, and the National Association of Realtors®. Rick was humbled in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 to be named one of the top 3% of all agents in Denver for the highest client satisfaction by being awarded the Five Star Real Estate Professional designation both years and was seen in Forbes Magazine in March of 2018. Rick is also a Certified Military Residential Specialist as he loves giving back to and serving those who have served our country.
During their off-times, Rick and Patty enjoy working around the house, playing a quick game of billiards, and love long drives thru the mountains in their Corvette. An occasional trip to Black Hawk is sometimes a fun source of entertainment.
Real Estate has become his overwhelming passion and he is fully committed to helping others achieve the American Dream thru Home Ownership.
