Darel Nakai: Buyer Specialist

Darel's favorite color is Green. His guilty pleasure is Bacon. He could binge watch Arrested Development all day if Bob would let him, and he is dad of the year because he knows all of the words and will belt proudly, Hakunah Matata like it is nobody's business.

"I was born and raised in Sandy, Utah and enjoy spending Sundays with my wife and three children. I also enjoy golfing, playing basketball and hosting BBQs with friends and family. I have been a former manager for many major companies including Ralph Lauren, Intermountain Health Care, and the Larry H. Miller Group. With this experience, I understand the meaning of world-class experience, sincere customer care, and the importance of building and maintaining a sterling reputation with every customer through honest and ethical service."

 Todd Leslie: Listing Specialist

Todd enjoys spending time with his wife and their five kids. He loves Cherry Coke and some of his bucket list items include participating in an Ironman Triathalon.... Go Todd!

"I was raised in a Real Estate family and I attended BYU’s Marriott School of Management with a Finance emphasis. After graduation I started my career in the Insurance industry and after 10 years of owning a successful insurance agency, I sold the business to pursue my passion of Real Estate. With the combination of my Finance background and Real Estate experience, I am uniquely qualified to provide the highest level of professional service to my clients. As a local area expert with knowledge of St. George and the surrounding area, my objective is to work diligently to assist you in meeting your real estate goals. Regardless of whether you are buying, selling or investing, I promise to provide you with outstanding customer service, consistent communication, and up to date market info so that you can be as informed as possible. As a real estate professional I maintain the highest standards of ethics, integrity and professionalism, and above all I understand that exceeding expectations is key to my client’s satisfaction."

 Jeni Yeager: Listing Coordinator

What would we do without Jeni!? She is the glue that holds us together, and hands Bob Red Vines when his sweet tooth starts to get the best of him. She has an eye for decorating and enjoys time with her three favorite people. Jeni loves to travel and soak up the sunshine. If she had a warning label, it would read: Talks a little too loud. Speaks her mind a little too loud. Tends to type a little too loud, also. (or so she has been told...{cough, cough} Bob...)

"I was born and raised in Southern California, however I’ve been here in St. George, Utah since 2001 and I absolutely love it. I attended Dixie State University and then settled down and became the lucky mother of two beautiful girls. We enjoy all the things that St. George and the surrounding areas have to offer. Some of our favorite things to do are travelling, boating, 4 wheeling and wakeboarding. We feel so lucky that all this beauty happens to be in our back yard. With having said that I am also extremely passionate about my work and the team I’m fortunate enough to work with. My duties for our team include: assisting with the advertising, promotion and marketing of all of our listings we have For Sale. I set up and track most of the showings at each home and collect and relay feedback to all our Sellers on a regular basis. I am also a licensed agent on our team so when you choose Bob Richards and Associates, you’ve got 5 LICENSED agents ALL working for you."

Shawnah Maitoza: Buyers Specialist

Shhhhhh....If you ever can't find Shawnah on Monday night she may or may not be hunkered down with chocolate and a coke zero rooting for ABC's next Bachelor or Bachelorette. (Your secret is safe with us, Shawnah).
