About Rico Castillo
It all started in 1993. Rico was working at Nordstrom in the Ladies Shoes department at their beautiful outdoor mall in Walnut Creek. He credits Nordstrom for instilling in him to always look out for his client's best interest.
Rico was one of their top producers.
Being a homeowner never crossed his mind. He thought he would eventually own a home, but at that point, it seemed like a distant future. He figured he'd buy a home when he was making more money and had more saved up for a down payment.
Then he heard one of my co-workers bought a home. Rico knew his co-worker was single, so he had to have bought that home with his income only or had help from his parents.
He was a better producer than his co-worker was and certainly made more in commission. He had to have help from family, right? Or so Rico thought.
Later on, Rico had a chance to speak with his co-worker. He said he was proud that he was able to buy the home by himself with no help from his family. Though he never thought he could afford it until his real estate agent showed him otherwise.
His agent introduced him to a good loan officer who showed him how much he could afford and how much he qualified for. He was very surprised to find out how much he could afford.
He went back to his agent and asked if there were homes in his price range. Even more surprised and now very excited, there were homes in his price range. Then, a little over a month later, he was a homeowner.
He introduced Rico to both his real estate agent and loan officer. And forty-five days later, Rico too became a homeowner.
Rico found the process to be easy and he wanted to experience it again - either to buy more homes or help others buy a home. The fire was lit.
Five years later, in 1998, Rico passed his real estate exam and his beautiful journey started.
Rico's many years of experience allow him to make real estate transactions - either buying or selling a home - stress-free. It helps him see potential red flags before it happens, thus helping his buyers and sellers save and/or make money through real estate.
