My first career was in education, starting as a teacher then finishing as a guidance counselor and having achieved my Bachelors, Masters and two PDs. In 1986, I began my real estate career and joined Netter Real Estate in 2009. In a sense, I am still an educator and offering guidance; this time I am outside of the classroom educating my clients on the selling and purchasing transactions; which have become so complicated recently and guiding them safely through the confusing and ever-changing real estate market.

It is very satisfying to me to help people with not only the greatest financial asset in their lives, but their greatest social and emotional asset; where they celebrate holidays, raise their families and live their lives. I take the needs of my clients very seriously and as a result, I am proud to say, over 95% of my sales are the result of referrals and recommendations. Recently, I have made a commitment to support the local non-profit organization, Pronto. For every sales transaction, a portion of my commission will be donated to Pronto of Long Island, a nonprofit community outreach center who feed the hungry, clothe the needy and provide hope for our neighbors.

Primarily, my areas of service are the Townships of Babylon and Islip on Long Island’s beautiful South Shore, near pristine beaches and wonderful boating, yet only 55 minutes from Manhattan; truly the best of both worlds.

I'm a graduate of the Real Estate Institute and am certified as an Accredited Buyer Representative, ABR, as well as a Senior Real Estate Specialist. This designation has helped me to list and sell more efficiently condos in a 55+ community. I also hold a license as a Notary Public. Please feel free to call or visit so I can help you fulfill your real estate dreams.

What Clients Are Saying

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review on my Zillow profile

My clients needs are a top priority in every transaction.  Much thanks!

Patricia Casamassa - Buyer

Dear Richard,

We were so surprised to receive the personalized ice bucket and silver scoop.  They are beautiful! They are also the first monogrammed item we own.  Which is so fitting as brand new home owners. 

But, we are grateful for so much more. When I thought of having to work with a real estate agent during such stressful times, I was really concerned.  As new parents, trying to navigate in a pandemic, buy a house during a virtually unprecedented housing market, and within a very short period of time, is intensely stressful. I figured we would probably have to keep our guards up, as we have not really had great experiences with real estate agents in the past. 

Boy, am I glad I asked my father for a recommendation.  

Richard, I don’t think I can really articulate how much we appreciate all your support. You made our first home purchase something to rejoice.  You and Kendra really minimized all the stress and helped us hang in there in buying the house of our dreams. 

We are truly grateful and will definitely keep in touch. 

Thank you so much! 


Vanessa and Bruce

From the moment we met him, we felt comfortable as if we knew him for years. His warmth and kindness were evident right away and we knew we had found someone we could trust. Richard helped our family find our dream home and we will forever be grateful to him for that. He was extremely knowledgeable and really understood what we were looking for in a home. Richard was always attentive to our family’s needs and always accessible. Our three children just loved him! We would highly recommend Richard to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
