A Trusted Advisor
Drawing on a near twenty-year career and $700M+ in positive client experiences, Scott Richards is a trusted, confidential resource in real estate investment. He advises a range of clientele, from local business leaders and c-suite executives to sports celebrities but most importantly, Scott works with genuine people that crave expert representation in their real estate transactions. The core of Scott’s success stems from the fundamental belief that luxury is a level of service, not a price point. He sparks inspiration, thrives on working collaboratively with all parties to elevate outcomes, and is proud to lead his clients through the process with a true competitive edge—even in the most complex situations. Scott treats each purchase and sale as its own entity, giving each the unique attention, passion and care they deserve.
Scott is always in search of ways to improve in an ever-changing market dynamic, studying the latest local and global market trends and fundamentals. He listens carefully and works feverishly to meet and exceed expectation, surrounding himself with others who honor those same values. This approach led Scott to align with Windermere Real Estate, where he serves as a Premier Director at the firm’s Bellevue Main office. His affiliation with the brand allows him to offer his Seattle and Eastside clients award-winning marketing, a fresh focus on our rapidly evolving real estate market, and a truly global reach with a trusted brand heritage that spans the world.
The fundamentals that inform Scott’s business extend far beyond his approach to real estate. As an Ironman® competitor and true outdoor enthusiast, Scott is well versed in hard work and perseverance, whether he’s representing his clients in a real estate transaction or bringing himself to the summit of some of the most arduous adventures in the world. Scott’s commitment to pushing himself to new heights extends to his community involvement as well, with a passion for cycling that combines with his cycling team’s core mission. TeamR4C.com is a non-profit focused on raising money through cycling to support advocacy and fund research for some of the largest medical issues facing our generation. Whether hitting the slopes with his family, training for his next athletic event or sitting at the negotiation table, one thing is certain: Scott will work tirelessly to deliver favorable results.
