Executive Vice President
Rich specializes in Office leasing and sales in the Indianapolis metropolitan market. During his commercial real estate career, Rich has quickly earned a nod as one of the market’s top brokers – completing over $800 million in transaction volume and representing many of the area’s most notable projects.
Rich has extensive experience on the developer / landlord side, with a strong suit in the positioning and marketing of many product / class types. He enjoys orchestrating the advantageous elements of a property in a fresh approach – to best present a property’s full “unique” story.
Rich keeps a pulse on the local market and greater industry trends. Consequently, he has become a go-to subject matter expert for local and national media – including the New York Times, Indianapolis Star, Indianapolis Business Journal, and other industry publications.
Within a formal specialized team, Rich tackles sophisticated assignments with an exhaustive effort and consistent thoroughness. The team leverages in-depth market data – matched with proven strategies and strong negotiation skills – to assist clients in meeting their overall objectives. Energy, creative-thinking, and focus are notable strengths that have become part of Rich’s brand and has led to many long-term client relationships.
Previously with NAI Olympia Partners, he was consistently among the firm's top producing brokers, was overall top producer for multiple years, and held a long-standing record within the firm for the most transactions within a year. Most recently he was with Summit Realty Group/Cushman Wakefield, where he was also a top producing broker and was a partner/owner.
In his free time, Rich enjoys spending quality time with his wife and three daughters, exercising, and attending live music performances.
