Back to Management
For more than 30 years, Richard Lester has had a driving passion for Real Estate.

Richard’s background dates back to the 1980’s as a top producing REALTOR© in Toronto, Canada. From there he moved to San Francisco and continued his passion for client care.

In 2004, Richard opened the Russian River / Wine Country sales office in Guerneville with his partner, John Genovese, and established an innovative and fresh approach to marketing Vacation Homes to San Francisco Buyers and Sellers that came to be known as Your City+Country Connection®. They immediately captured the dominant market presence in both sales volume and esteemed reputation for the utmost care, honesty, and integrity to their clients and fellow REALTORS© .

Today, Richard leads the Sales team at the Vanguard Russian River office with the same enthusiasm for exceptional care that he’s had from the very start. He excels at providing the guidance and support to each Agent that assures their success in a competitive and evolving regional market. With an impeccable reputation for transparency and integrity, he is successful in grooming top producers and positioning them for a lifetime of success in Real Estate.
