"I highly recommend Richard Nolan to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. He went above and beyond our expectations in helping my husband and I purchase our dream home. He was always professional, punctual, followed through a hundred percent of the time. Mr. Nolan was very personable, easy to work with, and available every step of the way. Richard was highly skilled and informed in both technology and paperwork. He was a tremendous help in every part of the process. Richard was a pleasure to work with and helped us through our experience from the beginning to end. It was wonderful working with him."

"Being a first time home buyer I found myself extremely nervous about the home buying experience. I had been in communication with Richard and his staff at NRE for over (6) months before deciding to purchase a home. Richard and his staff were understanding and employed a “no pressure” approach throughout the entire process, which made me feel at ease and relaxed. Richard personally took the time to explain each part of the process to me and ensured that I was kept informed every step of the process. Due to my busy work schedule, I found it difficult to make appointments with Richard and his staff during normal business hours, which was no problem for Richard or his staff. Richard was more than understanding of my situation and would meet me at work or home to ensure the process would not be delayed. His staff ensured a “30 day escrow” and Richard made it happen beforehand, not to mention my home was a short sale, with a less than aggressive listing agent. Never have a met a more down to earth business owner, who is so genuinely concerned about his client’s welfare and the product of his professionalism . Richard, I owe you and your staff a debt of ceaseless gratitude. Thank you for all your hard work."

"I highly recommend Rich Nolan to anyone looking to purchase a home. He is very knowledgeable and professional. Buying a home is stressful enough, Rich makes your experience that much more smoother. It was wonderful working with him."

"I was trying to sell a peice of property in Palm Springs although I resided in Massachusetts. Richard did a fabulous job of working with me on selling this property. He also responded in a timely manner to my questions and always gave me feedback on potential buyers who had viewed the property. His level of professionalism was always apparent. His suggestions on changes we made to the property to make it more appealing were excellent and definitely paid off in the sale price. I give Richard my highest level of recommendation."

About Rich
Rich is quintessentially Palm Springs. Having spent most of his life in the desert resort city, Rich is the epitome of the easy-going but straightforward vibe of Palm Springs. Rich brings with him 14 years of experience as a top-producing licensed real estate broker. He was recognized as the 2018 MVP of Greater Palm Springs, ranking in the top 1% of Realtors®, and was featured in Palm Springs Life Magazine’s “40 Under 40”, where the Coachella Valley’s most innovative individuals are recognized for shaping the desert’s future.

With a passion for architecture and design, going into the real estate industry was the natural path for Rich to take. His entrepreneurial spirit led him into real estate when he was just 19, and the experience of closing his first deal within the first three weeks of the business changed his life forever. He earned his real estate license in 2005 and furthered his education by obtaining his broker’s license in 2009. His career highlights are numerous, but he is especially honored to have represented some of the desert’s most distinguished properties, including the former Frank Sinatra Residence, architectural homes by Donald Wexler, AIA William Krisel, AIA William Cody and the Linea Development, the coveted collection of South Palm Springs estates designed with a luxury minimalist aesthetic by Andrew Adler and Anthony Poon.

Rich’s clientele spans the gamut, from entertainment producers and professional athletes to those simply looking for their weekend getaway. With his impeccable reputation in the Palm Springs real estate market, Rich consistently demonstrates his talent for pairing clients with homes that best suit them and their lifestyle. Clients appreciate his easy-going nature yet feel confident that his direct approach to selling a property or negotiating a contract will be highly valuable.

When Rich is not showing properties on the weekends, he spends time with his wife Tanya whom he has known since high school, and their two French bulldogs, Alfie and Leo. Giving back to their community is important to Rich and Tanya who get involved with local charities every year, including playing Santa to about ten local families in need every Christmas. They are also involved in Girlfriend Factor, raising money to benefit women with financial access to higher education through Go Girl! Grants fundraisers where Rich got to play the part of a cabana boy!

“The best thing about my job is that I’m challenged every single day. I am constantly fine-tuning my craft and I strive to improve. I have the privilege of being chosen to work with buyers and sellers in one of, if not the biggest asset of their lives.” – Rich Nolan
