Meet Ryan Richard

Compass Agent | Urbanist | Designer


Ryan has had a lifelong love of finding and creating beautiful spaces that reflect the narrative of the people who call them home. 


Prior to Ryan’s real estate career, he was a successful architectural designer and holds Masters of Architecture and Masters of City Planning degrees from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His design training allows him and his clients to imagine new possibilities and potential in properties that others overlook. This architectural approach makes him adept at translating a buyer’s needs into physical space and positioning listings to communicate and connect with buyers. 


Ryan’s rank in the top 1 % of San Francisco agents is attributed to his deep and profound partnership with his clients. Ryan is meticulous and thorough in every aspect of a sale and values the importance of hard work and humility. He finds success in his work only when his client’s goals are surpassed.

Ryan has a long-time commitment toward using architecture and real estate to benefit others. In this spirit, he donates a portion of his commission from every real estate transaction to San Francisco foundations that support local art and education opportunities and to Home for a Home, a non-profit that builds homes for Guatemalan families in need.
