I started my Real Estate career in Sydney, Australia in 1990. My parents were property developers so it was always something I was involved in and knew about from a young age. In 1993 I opened my own agency that became very successful. Always looking for a new challenge, I decided to move to the United States in 1996 and settled in Los Angeles. Since then I have been working predominantly on the west side of Los Angeles and have established a large, loyal customer base.
I am happy to say that I work almost exclusively through referrals from past and present clients. Having being named a top producer in every office I have been involved with over the last 23 years, I bring a huge amount of experience and expertise to my clients. Whether it is a multi-million dollar property or a small studio apartment my effort and commitment is the same. I pride myself on my strong negotiating skills, perseverance and knowledge but at the same time listening to my clients and really working with them to realize their goals and needs.
Having recently moved to the Palm Springs area, but still having a home in Los Angeles, allows me to work in both markets, often representing the same clients in LA that are looking to buy or sell their second homes in the desert area.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family which quite often includes watching my 6 year old son at his various sporting events. I'm also a huge car fan and constantly looking for the next deal! One of my proudest achievements is recently becoming a US citizen.

"I can’t imagine buying our first house without Richard. From helping us figure out which neighborhoods we wanted to target, to matching our style to availability in the marketplace, to his patience in showing us as many houses as we needed to see to find the right match, to standing by us throughout the inspection and financing process, Richard was a tireless advocate. We didn’t find our dream home, Richard did!"
-Scott and Talin Tenley
"I’ve worked with Richard for several years and bought several homes with his help. I highly recommend him. His honesty and integrity is a rare find."
"As a developer of residential real estate for well over thirty years and the CEO of an active home builder, I have very high expectations when choosing a broker to represent me. I expect in depth market knowledge, strong local relationships, immediate responsiveness and an enjoyable personality. Our experience with Richard Bartholomew was all of these things and more."
