I have perfected smart strategies and advanced systems to provide my clients with extraordinary success and often record breaking transactions. I create unique marketing campaigns that have allowed me to successfully manage more than 400 home sales over the years ranging from first time buyer condos to homes well into the high end million + range.
What I am truly proud of is the fact that I have earned the trust and respect of my clients creating hundreds of life long friendships. While many agents consider people as ” leads” I focus on relationships and doing the best that I possibly can to help the people who depend on me.
I’ll be here when you need me. In fact you’ll most likely hear from me before you have questions. I keep you updated throughout our process continuously. I’ll happily answer your call, your email or text and have solutions along with smart strategies to accomplish our goals. My supportive team includes attorneys, interior designers, house keepers, contractors, strategic planners, marketing specialists and listing coordinators as well as two personal listing assistants who all are available to assist with your sale with things like turning lights on and off, checking the property after a storm, being sure your property is shoveled and plowed and even arranging cleaning crews or handymen when needed.
During the past 10 years I have successfully managed more than 400 sales worth almost $200,000,000 in real estate volume. The majority of the clients have been introduced to me from friends who started out as clients. This is an extraordinary high amount for an individual agent.
For your comfort I offer short listing agreements. I am confident in my ability to get your home sold at the price you have chosen. My agreements include language allowing you to cancel at any time prior to accepting an offer at no cost to you.
My commission rates are considered extremely fair. The extensive services, national and international marketing and high quality advertising I provide reaches further across the globe. In the first 48 hours we should reach as many as 50,000 people who could be interested in your property. I am able to keep my rates competitive due to the fact that I help so many home owners move on a yearly basis and the fact my marketing works.

A lifelong public servant, Rich has devoted his entire career to helping others. He brings an intense drive coupled with an easy-going nature. “I want my clients to understand and know that I am there for them. I can remember being a 23-year-old working two jobs nearly around the clock saving to buy a home. When I started the process of buying a home it was one of the scariest things I had ever done. Every penny and dime I had saved had gone into this investment. I remember saying to my real estate agent this is everything I have in the world, I hope I am doing this right! Over 10 years later I am still a home owner, and still remember the joy of closing on my first home. That is the feeling I want to share with you, making the dream of home ownership a reality! I am grateful for the opportunity to share these experiences with my clients. I will use my knowledge, experience, and training to guide you through the home buying process and assure you I will be there every step of the way. Let me help you find your next home.

Richmond epitomizes energy, hard work, and creative solutions and services to all of his clients and throughout every detail of the real estate transaction.
Why Real Estate?
Quite simply Richmond loves helping people! To him there is no greater feeling than sitting with people and learning their hopes, dreams, and goals and then being a part of helping them achieve and attain those objectives. Richmond's favorite aspect of real estate is "being there" when people find their "forever home" or the property they were searching for and then helping them get that property. Richmond is a skilled negotiator who understands the importance of communication with all of the parties involved in a transaction and how being prepared helps lessen the stress that naturally comes with buying/selling realestate.

Broke into the Real Estate field over 15 years ago to help change the culture of what the business was. I believe in helping people make well thought out decisions whether buying or selling. Decisions of this magnitude shouldn't be rushed and I have seen one careless mistake stick with someone for years. While the initial process of buying or selling is typically all about the technology, I feel now more than ever, it truly IS a business of people meeting people.

Licensed Real Estate agent since 1989.
Servicing Buyers and Sellers came naturally to me, my prior career was retail management for Marshall’s. One of my earliest opportunities was servicing Freddie Mac ROE properties. Having the ability to incorporate my prior business experiences and my passion for Real Estate was a perfect match for my skills, with plenty of detail work and dealings with the corporate world.
Reinventing myself is something I have much success with. I focused my Real Estate career working with Buyers and Sellers in the Newburyport Market and was a top agent for many years. The challenge of finding the right house for a specific Buyer or assisting a Seller to position themselves to obtain the highest and best price was something I loved to do.
In 2012 I took a position to be a trainer, mentor and transaction coordinator and worked for a few agents but one agent used much of my time and resources, Robert Bentley. With sales of 31.2 million dollars in 2013 Robert knew he had to build a Team and he did. My new position of team manager officially started in January 2014, quickly we had five team members plus Robert. Mentoring new agents is something I enjoy and seeing their successes is personally rewarding.
May 2016, Robert Bentley and Alissa Christie formed BENTLEY’S, an ultra modern Real Estate company, my position changed from Team Manager to managing every aspect of running a successful Real Estate company. My commitment has never changed or my passion to see a NEW agent accomplish success with their career. My favorite saying is “what can I do to make you day better today?”

Living on the North Shore of Boston for my entire life, I am very fortunate to call the Seacoast area home for the past 13 years!
During my career as a Real Estate paralegal, I have been involved in many aspects of the industry. For several years, I was affiliated with Property Management, as well as Landlord Tenant issues.
I have worked for a firm that represented Lenders in trying to sort out the foreclosure debacle. Watching so many families losing their homes for one reason or another, has helped me to develop a true appreciation for what it means to be a homeowner, and just what the decision and responsibility of owning a home entails.
I love being a part of a Team and a process that has placed more families in their dream homes, and helped them realize that this dream is an achievable reality! I am committed to you, our client, and will guide you through the process and over any obstacles that this ever-changing market may drop in our way.
I am a New Englander through and through. I love everything this area has to offer. From the warm beach days in the summer, to the brisk snowy days in the winter. I am fortunate to experience it all, and raise my kids to enjoy it as well. I couldn’t imagine living in any other area.
I’m married and mother to two amazing young boys.
My introduction to Real Estate was in 2016 as a Transaction Coordinator. I like having the opportunity to help my agent’s and their clients who are selling and/or purchasing a home. Every transaction is different, but my goal is to make a pleasant experience for all parties. I am happy to be welcomed to such a great team such as Bentley’s, and look forward to what the future holds.
