Our Agent Spotlight this week is Todd Richard. Todd has been in the business for 28 years and enjoys the opportunity to meet wonderful people and help them buy or sell what is likely their largest investment. Take a moment and get to know a little bit more about Todd with the following:
Q-Do you have any advice for First Time Home Buyers?
A-My advice for first time home buyers is to definitely work with a Real Estate agent. Find a Realtor that you like and trust. Buying a home is a big investment and it can be overwhelming, especially the first time. The process should be fun but also as worry free as possible.
Q-What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced in the business?
A-The biggest challenge I face being a Realtor is staying consistent through down markets.
Q-What advice would you give someone that is thinking about venturing into Real Estate?
A-My advice to someone thinking of becoming a Realtor is to stay focused and seek out family and friends for referrals and give it a few years. Success in the business takes time.
Q-What areas do you service?
A-Although I spend a bit more time in Sylvania and West Toledo, I work throughout the Toledo area on a consistent basis.
Q-What do consider the area’s best kept secret?
A- My first thought of Toledo’s best kept secrets would be our Metroparks, Art Museum and Zoo (which shouldn’t be a secret to anyone) but would also say we have a great choice of Schools and beautiful neighborhoods.
Q-What’s your favorite part of this area and why? Also, When you aren’t working, what do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
A-My favorite part of Toledo is that my family is here. When I am not working I mostly enjoy being with my wife and daughter with some yard work and running thrown in.
Q-Anything else you’d like your clients to know about you?
A-I would like my clients to know how much I appreciate their trust in me and that I have their best interest in mind.
