Ryan Richards SM
Real Estate Agent and Founding SF Team Member
Other Affiliations : BS - Washington University
Ryan works with buyers and sellers to achieve their San Francisco real estate goals through deep understanding of his clients’ needs and a structured, market data-oriented approach to his business. His properties have spanned the city from the crooked curves of Lombard Street to the heart of the Mission, and he finds a particular joy in helping people discover new gems of neighborhoods and unique homes within them.
Prior to Ryan’s real estate career, he was a successful architectural designer and holds Masters of Architecture and Masters of City Planning degrees from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Ryan’s architectural work spanned the globe from San Francisco to Shanghai to Siem Reap and ran the gamut from high-end residential and commercial projects to conceptual entries for highly prestigious design competitions. His design training allows him to imagine new possibilities and potential in properties that others overlook, and to be realistic about the feasibility of achieving them.
Ryan has had a long-time commitment toward using architecture and real estate to benefit others. In this spirit, he donates a portion of his proceeds from every real estate transaction to support the building of homes for needy families in Guatemala through the non-profit Home for a Home.
