Richard Newton has nearly a decade of experience as a realtor. He began his real estate career with a national firm in Atlanta, where he became the company’s top new agent, before moving to one of the city’s most prominent firms. However, a move to Santa Fe was inevitable, as his parents lived here for over twenty years and his wife grew up in nearby Los Alamos. “I cannot think of any place in this country that is more unique and magical, and we are thrilled to make Santa Fe our home.” Prior to becoming a realtor, Richard was in the hospitality industry, first as a hotel executive and later an independent wedding planner. "If there is one constant in my career, it is helping my clients navigate life's big events." Richard spent most of his childhood in Paris and holds both French and U.S. citizenships. In addition to his time in France, he has lived in Switzerland, London, Chicago, New York and Atlanta. "I have completely lost count of how many times I have moved; it is never easy, but it’s very beneficial to my clients that I understand first hand what they are experiencing." In Atlanta, Richard had served as a board member of both his homeowner’s association and the local Civic Association. He is currently active with the Santa Fe Realtor’s Association.
