Florence Richard | Realtor®

Florence Richard is a residential real estate agent and property investor serving the Southern Marin County market. A shrewd investor who owns several successful income properties across the USA, she has an eye for identifying properties that will meet the needs of her buyers and will gain the most value over time. Adhering to absolute and uncompromising ethical principles, it was her success as a real estate investor that led her to become a real estate agent.

Also, an accomplished Human Resources professional, Florence was formerly Director of Human Resources at various institutions. In both positions, she steered negotiations and managed compliance and conflict resolution for large, multi-disciplinary teams. She has published multiple articles in the HR space and is generally seen as a leader in her field by her peers. Through her work as an HR professional, Florence mastered the arts of conflict resolution, negotiation, and process management, making her the ideal real estate agent to represent clients in the competitive Marin County real estate market.

In addition to finding fantastic homes for her buyer-side clients, Florence provides real estate advice to first-time investors. By leveraging data-mining strategies she perfected through her consulting work in the tech industry, she easily identifies properties that will be most likely to provide a strong return on investment—and for her seller-side clients, casts a wide net on buyers looking for those properties.

Originally from France, Florence attended La Sorbonne in Paris, where she earned her BS in International Trade and Foreign Affairs. When not dealing in real estate, Florence enjoys running Marin County’s best trails and hanging out with her husband and two wonderful teenage boys. 

"With Florence it’s “no stone unturned”. Buying a house in the Bay Area was crazy, especially over the pandemic. Florence worked tirelessly on our behalf and we viewed countless properties with her. In the end, the difference came through her network, giving us a rare opportunity to buy a beautiful home in Marin. She brings a level headed calmness to the process and I always give my friends, who are thinking of selling or buying, her details."

"5 star experience: I could not recommend Florence highly enough, and if there was an extra star for going the extra mile, then I would give it. Selling a house can be a stressful process, and I so appreciated Florence's calm, when things were not feeling calm, diligence and professionalism. She was always on the other end of the phone, to talk things through and when there was something she needed to talk about, I appreciated the open and thoughtful dialogue. And the real cherry on the cake, she got us multiple offers, all over-asking. We couldn't be happier."

"A couple of weeks ago I bought a new house in MV with the help of Florence. When I start writing this review I realized that I am using some cliché words like nice, caring, thoughtful, hardworking etc. I decided not to write the review with those cliché words because she is more than those words. Instead I am just saying " Trust no one but Florence" and "Excellent !! Excellent, !!Excellent !!""
