Richard Newman, Realtor | Urban Home Specialist
Being part of the Downtown Resource Group allows Richard Newman’s market expertise and focus on client service to benefit his many satisfied clients. The goal of the relationship is to be a guide, advocate and trusted advisor – and to help clients reach their real estate goals.
Although born and raised in St. Paul, Richard moved to Minneapolis because of everything the city has to offer. After attending the U of M and studying photography at Brooks Institute, Richard owned and operated a travel agency that worked with both business and leisure travelers. This provided Richard with an appreciation for the importance of superior customer service. In 2004, Richard sold that business, made the transition to being a Realtor, and decided to focus on the Minneapolis condo, loft and town home market. In 2005, MinneapolisUrbanHomes.com was founded and quickly became one of the first and foremost of the sites specializing in providing valuable information and search tools for this developing community.
When Richard isn’t working, he enjoys travel, biking, motorcycling, golfing – and most of all – spending time with his wife Jeorgina and son, Joey.
