A little bit about me...

As a real estate professional in the coastal area, Richard’s clients have a gateway to the “ultimate in living” on the gold coast of California, where he has lived over the past 24 years. He is very knowledgeable about this highly desirable market. Whether you are looking for a condo or that dream home with ocean views, he will place a particular emphasis on finding that special place. 

In addition to a background and experience in real estate, Richard brings over 25 years of international experience as a corporate senior management and sales executive. His real estate experience in California spans over sixteen years where a thorough understanding of the coastal California properties has been developed. His strong interest in real estate includes previous active licenses in Texas and Georgia. 

A civil engineering degree from University of Oklahoma, business administration at SMU and an executive program from Stanford, gives him a well-rounded background in providing a very professional approach in serving clients. 

Providing “exceptional customer service with a professional approach” is his guiding principle. Carefully listening to clients and their needs, combined with his inherent attention to detail and communications throughout, will confidently provide buyers or sellers a representation that will meet their objectives. 

Richard teams with his daughter, Melanie Kermode, as a father/daughter team with Villa Real Estate. Therefore, whether a buyer or seller, their combined approach will give you a broader service in meeting your needs
