HÔM Sotheby's agent Richard Bartholomew's real estate career began in 1990 in Sydney, Australia and within three years, he had opened his own agency. Always looking to challenge himself personally and professionally, though, he moved to Los Angeles to explore southern California's markets and for 13 years, he was a consistent top producer in Beverly Hills. In 2010, he was lured to the desert region and since then, he has built a loyal clientele almost exclusively from repeat and referral business. From first homes to vacation estates, Bartholomew's commitment and effort are the same - his only goal is to achieve his clients' goals and provide an unforgettable level of service in the process. He prides himself on his strong negotiating skills, perseverance and knowledge, as well as his outstanding listening skills. He and his family are active in the desert communities and he enthusiastically shares his knowledge and insight. He's also a dedicated professional whose affiliations include the California Association of Realtors; the Desert Area Association of Realtors; the Beverly Hills and Greater Los Angeles Association of Realtors; and National Association of Realtors GREEN.
