Born and raised on the East End of Long Island, Rich has spent the past 25 years in the field of education as both a classroom teacher and a school administrator. Rich initially earned his Bachelor of Science in Management from Binghamton University. He then went on to work 3 years for both Metropolitan Life and Prudential before returning to college to pursue his Masters in Education and his Professional Diploma in School District Administration. In the early 2000’s while a school administrator, Rich spent several years part-time as a licensed realtor assisting a local agent specializing in summer rentals. That experience of helping clients find their summer “home away from home” is what reignited Rich’s interest in the field of real estate. As a school administrator with a plethora of responsibilities, Rich’s vast experience in working harmoniously with a multitude of constituents has provided him with the skill set necessary to thrive in procuring that most important “meeting of the minds”. When you work with Rich you receive honesty, integrity, loyalty, patience, attention to detail, determination, and a tireless effort.
