Rachael began her real estate career in 2005 and was awarded "Rookie of the Year". Since 2005, she continues to increase her position among top producers and is currently ranked in the top 1 per cent for sales production. Rachael’s mother, a 30 year veteran in the real estate business, played a large role in her early success and still continues to serve as a member of Rachael’s team. Rachael’s father, a retired Colonel in the United States Marine Corps, instilled responsibility and accountability early in Rachael’s life that she attributes to her impeccable work ethic. Working alongside husband and partner, Ben, her determination, management and leadership skills allow her to be among the top Real Estate agents.
Top Agent Magazine recently featured Rachael in a nationwide article and Who's Who In Business ranks her among the top 10 female agents in Arizona for 2011 and 2012. Rachael and her team are extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve each client and provide the highest level of residential real estate service possible.
With an accomplished background in sales and small business ownership, Ben’s group operations and contract negotiating ensure the process of buying or selling Real Estate with the Rachael Richards Group is seamless. It begins with building a professional relationship based on communication. As Rachael’s husband and partner, Ben is involved in every step from the first day through close of escrow. With customer service always at the forefront, this role is essential for meeting the individual needs of each client as well as the team’s overall success.

Teamwork is exceptional and this mother-daughter team has discussions several times a day regarding ideas, market conditions and how to continually better serve their clients.
Rhonda’s husband Ron retired from the United States Marine Corps as a fighter pilot so she has experienced living in many parts of the United States and other countries. Her favorite outside interest is spending time with her children and grandchildren.
Real estate is such a rewarding career as it affords me the opportunity to meet and work with so many wonderful, diverse people. Finding clients just the right home or property after an extensive search is the best feeling in the world! Real estate was a natural career choice for me after 12 years in the teaching profession and online educational field as I am truly a ‘people-person’. Being on Rachael’s team is great as I have the support and experience of her whole team behind me. Officially I have been in real estate for just about a year, but unofficially I have been finding homes for my friends for years!
Living in Phoenix for nearly 20 years qualifies me as a ‘native’. However, I literally grew up all over the world, following my father during his lifelong service in the Air Force. I think that is one reason why I love meeting new people so much!
