There is a certain pride that comes with being a San Franciscan. As a resident of the Sunset District for more than a decade, Rich Gaddi ought to know. His family came from the Philippines and is proud to call the San Francisco Bay Area home.
In fact, it was that love of home — and the grief of losing one — that drove Rich to become a real estate professional. Close to 10 years ago, his family lost their home in a short sale, and he felt powerless. Though he didn’t know enough at the time, he worked hard to see it through to a resolution and vowed to never repeat the experience. Now, he brings the same dedication to helping clients build a strong foundation that will elevate and maintain the life they love.
Being in the “people business” is a family value Rich carries into his professional life. He worked as a nurse for several years, developing an innate ability to help people by connecting and letting them know he is by their side to provide care. Working with first-time and move-up buyers and sellers is a pleasure for Rich — he loves being the good guy and rooting for the underdog.
Proud of his community, Rich volunteered with Pacific Islanders Together and Harvest, feeding close to 2,000 people every week during the pandemic. He’s also vice president of Young Entrepreneur Success, an association that gathers professionals from all walks of life to brainstorm, mastermind, further networks, and contribute to society.
Rich draws from the strength sown from his past to achieve clients’ homeownership dreams the same way he did for his family. And now that he’s armed with the knowledge and experience to back his already-impressive skill set, success is the only result.
