About Bob Richards & Associates

Bob Richards

Bob is originally from Salt Lake (Sugarhouse / Parley’s Way area) and an Honors graduate of Westminster College in Marketing.

After receiving his real estate license, in early May, 1992 Bob took a major leap of faith and moved to St. George to start a new career in the real estate business.

Thankfully, Bob had an outstanding Mentor/Broker, Thayne Houston, who was there to help, guide, and direct Bob into being a successful Realtor. Bob will forever be grateful for Thayne’s counsel and friendship and is considered as one of the major reasons why Bob’s a successful Realtor. He is one of Bob’s heroes and idols in life.

In January, 1998, Bob was involved in the purchase of RE/MAX First Realty from the previous Broker.

In 2014, Bob moved to Keller Williams, St. George on 1624 S. Convention Center Dr. Keller Williams adhere’s to the highest standards of ethics, morals, values, and professionalism. Those used to be found at RE/MAX but were compromised. Bob’s integrity means a great deal to him and he wanted to surround himself with other Realtors and a corporate culture that held the same values with a solid, honest core belief system.

Bob has sold over 5000 homes, land, condominiums, townhomes, etc. in his 25 years of being in business and continues to grow Bob Richards & Associates daily to exceed expectations of his clients and to make sure service is first and foremost always “paying it forward”. For ALL of your real estate needs, contact Bob Richards and CONSIDER IT DONE!!
