why the rhino?
People ask all the time, "Why the Rhino". Our "Rhino" connection is based more on a philosophy and some on the actual animal. We consider our team to be a CRASH (Rhino term for herd or group) of hard-charging, two-inch thick skinned agents who are willing to go above and beyond for our client's best interests and needs. We work hard, know our business and charge full-steam ahead. Adult Rhinos have no real predators in the wild (except humans) and are known for being tough. Not all agents can be a Rhino, nor do we want just any agent - our group is specially selected based on their character, integrity, dedication and performance. Many have applied to join our team, but only a few selected.
Our team consists of several highly trained and certified Realtors®. We have several Buyer's Agents who specialize in First-Time Buyers, and Move-up or Down Buyers as well. We are trained in Foreclosures homes and are a certified HUD Brokerage. We can easily show any property for sale listed by any real estate company in the entire Metro-Denver area. Our Listing Agents are Certified Home Selling Advisors and know how to sell your home quicker, for top dollar and with the least amount of hassles. Looking for a newly built home? We can represent you on those also - our agents have close relationships with the top builders here in the Denver area, so we know how they work and we can help you get the perfect home that you want.
Now, mentally picture an adult Rhino leading you through the real estate safari to help you buy or sell your home and looking out for your best interest. That is quite a sight! Really, that thought had to make you smile. For more information, Google "Rhinoceros Success", a motivational book by Scott Alexander.
Meet The Team
Rick’s passion for real estate began back in 1976 when he bought his first book on "How to be a Real Estate Investor". From then on, he dabbled in real estate investments and fix & flips. In 2000 Rick realized that he enjoyed real estate well enough that he should pursue this as a career and in 2001 he received his license. In 2003 Rick ventured out and dedicated his full-time career to Real Estate and has never looked back since. Rick is the Broker/Owner of Rhino Realty Pros. He has helped hundreds of individuals to successfully buy and sell their homes in the Metro Denver area.
In forming Rhino Realty Pros, he did not want just an ordinary style real estate team of advisors. Instead it was going to be one based on excelling in unmatched client services and by doing things their clients never expected but always deserved. Brokers on his team are very highly trained by Rick himself. His expertise lies mainly in Residential Real Estate and especially enjoys working with first-time buyers, move-up clients and investors. He comes from an extensive background in the restaurant industry, with construction on the side. With both industries being big on customer service, it was an easy transition to take his learnings from the restaurant industry into Real Estate.
Rhino Realty Pros is focused on taking the real estate transaction to a whole new level of client service and satisfaction.
