Rick Avery

Real Estate Advisor | Founding Compass San Francisco Agent
CalBRE# 01704234

Swimming serves as an apt symbol of Rick Avery's admirable level of dedication and ambition. Five days a week, or more, he’s up at dawn to swim the bay — a routine he doesn’t break regardless of season. Rick brings this same level of fierce commitment and tenacity to his real estate clients.

Each morning, when he takes in the breathtaking view of the city from the water, he’s reminded of what a privilege it is to live here and inspired to help others achieve the exceptional lifestyle San Francisco affords. Over the last 13 years, Rick has established a sterling reputation as an ambitious and diligent agent with unsurpassed knowledge of the Bay Area market. He lived in SF for 16 years and has owned a home in Sonoma for the past 5 years. He excels by being patient, caring and working at his clients’ pace. "I try to make it easy for folks to complete one of the most significant and important transactions they’ll ever make," he says.

A Connecticut native, Rick resided in New York City before making the move to the West Coast. He holds a degree in accounting from Georgetown University and worked at the prestigious Price Waterhouse after graduation. Rick has been a member of the renown Dolphin Swimming and Boating Club for 14 years. When he's not in the water, he enjoys running, hiking and playing with his dog Bruno.

 In our changing world, I know it is difficult to choose a real estate agent you can trust to represent and guide you through your most important investment…your home. All companies and agents are not alike and having the right plan, negotiating experience and advice can mean the difference to your bottom line and getting the desired results. When you select me to represent you, you will get my 100% commitment to listen to your needs and react to your concerns in a positive and professional manner.

Having had a successful career as a partner of a multi-million dollar print brokerage I bring my ability to understand my clients needs, analyze the opportunity and then negotiate for a successful close, for each and every one of my clients. I had many clients for 15-25 years and was able to keep them because I was honest, had integrity and they always knew they could trust me. I provided a level of service that could not be beaten because I cared. I will do the same for you.

I grew up in Marin County, raised my family there and then moved to the town of Sonoma. I have a lifelong network of personal and professional connections all contributing to my knowledge of the schools, the neighborhoods and the community amenities available both in Marin and Sonoma Counties.

It is extremely rewarding to guide my clients through each stage of their real estate transaction and I look forward to doing the same for you.
