“Led his successful brokerage of only 20 agents to achieve the ‘highest production per agent’ of any brokerage within its trading area.”

Born of humble roots in the small town of Peterborough, Ontario (Canada), Richard enthusiastically began a career in real estate sales at the age of 24. After four record-breaking years including hitting a six figure income in his first year and every year after that, Richard decided it was time for a change. In 1989, Richard opened his own real estate brokerage some 90 miles from his small town and amidst one of the worst real-estate recessions the Country had ever seen.

Richard was undeterred by the enormous obstacles and in just 3 years, he successfully ranked among the top 1% of all REALTORS® in his marketplace and grew a powerhouse brokerage that captured 12% market share. Richard’s extraordinary leadership and innate ability to inspire peak performance in his fellow agents, also led his successful brokerage of only 20 agents to achieve the “highest production per agent” of any brokerage within its trading area. It was here that Richard discovered a profound passion for speaking and helping others to achieve goals they never thought possible. Today, Richard is an author, business mentor and sought-after expert in the field of personal and professional performance. He is best described by his audiences as the epitome of a true integrity-powered leader, and considers it his greatest honour to have had the opportunity to ignite the lives of over 250,000 audience members thus far.

On a personal note, Richard believes life is to be experienced at every opportunity. From flying a fighter jet through the mountains of South Africa to heli-skiing at the peaks of Whistler, racing NASCAR with his brothers and dad, and coming face-to-face with sharks some 80 feet below sea level – Richard seizes each and every opportunity to live life BIG.

Richard and his wife, Sue, Co-founder and President at Richard Robbins International, reside in Markham, Ontario, and are parents to two extraordinary kids, Jaimie and Tanner, and one amazing grandson, Brooks, with another on the way. The Robbins’ are avid readers, fitness/health enthusiasts and personal development junkies who truly believe there’s no place like home.
