Florida Technology University (now called University of Central Florida) Orlando Junior College
Chances are longtime Central Floridians may not recognize Richard's name but they most likely dined at one time or another at his popular downtown Winter Park restaurants 'La Belle Verriere' Restaurant and Halsey's Restaurant and Lounge. Richard owned both of the popular, award-winning Park Avenue establishments which were considered to be among the places to go and be seen during the late 1970's through the late 1980's. Those restaurants were among the many highlights in Richard's impressive four decade career in the restaurant and hospitality industry. Richard has since swapped his apron and spatula for a multiple listing book. Instead of cooking up new recipes, he's now cooking up property deals in his role as an associate for Kelly Price & Company. Richard joined the Kelly Price & Company team in late 2006 and is as comfortable in real estate as he was in the restaurants he has owned or managed, including the former Langford Resort Hotel in Winter Park where he was the Maitre'd of the Empire Room in the late 1960's, The Caboose Restaurant & Lounge in Fern Park, and several restaurants in California, including The Feed Store in Santa Barbara, California; and Jackson's, and The Depot, both in Camarillo, California. "We're delighted to have someone with such unique and extraordinary professional background on our sales team," says company owner Kelly Price. "As a former restaurant owner and executive, Richard knows from experience about the value of good customer service." Despite his proven prowess in the kitchen, Richard also is accomplished on the high seas. He is among an elite group who holds a Master Sea Captain license. Richard is also among the early Central Floridians who attended the old Florida Technology University (1973), now called UCF. A resident of Winter Park, Richard specializes in Winter Park/Maitland and downtown Orlando properties.
