Richard Wood Realtor Associate
Richard has been selling luxury residential real estate for the past 24 years and specializes in country club and waterfront properties in the Palm Beaches area. He has sold hundreds of homes and has always made providing first class customer service his priority. Richard’s past clients truly appreciate his care and advice. Richard got his real estate start in the development end of the business working on a 2-year project which involved land acquisition, design, build, and sale of a large hillside home in Los Angeles. This personal experience has been invaluable in Richard’s involvement with developers and the sale of their projects as well as working with clients who are interested in project homes for themselves.
When the time comes for negotiating on his client’s behalf Richard puts his over two decades of experience to work which starts before any offer ever comes in or goes out. It starts with listening to the other side at all times knowing what to say and when to say it. Sometimes silence can be just as powerful. Richard’s clients are at a true advantage if real motivations are exposed.
Richard has a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder with continuing education from UCLA in construction management and from Santa Monica College in Architecture. Richard’s interests include yoga, backpacking, golf, guitar and scuba diving. He also likes to exercise regularly and is a foodie who loves to cook nutritious food.

I highly recommend Richard Wood as a realtor. He handled a complex estate property sale for our family, communicating effectively with everyone involved, most of whom were out of state residents. He negotiated a fair and optimum price for us, and handled all the back and forth in the transaction personally and professionally. We felt Richard was “in our corner” at all times and represented our best interests throughout the sale. We easily trusted his expertise; and knowledge and nuances of a very active Palm Beach market. Finally, Richard was incredibly efficient and our sale went quickly and smoothly from contract to closing. We couldn’t be happier with the service we received from Richard Wood.Scott Miller & Family
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Richard Wood as a realtor for anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property in the Palm Beach County area. We are very pleased with how he worked with us over the past year to help sell our property in Jupiter. Over the past decade, our parents lived for most of the year in Admiral’s Cove. Due to health issues, they left Florida in Spring of 2019 and were unable to return. Since we began negotiations with the neighbor to sell them this property, Richard helped us navigate a series of hurdles needed to see the sale through, including HOA and city zoning approvals for additions that the prospective buyer wanted to make as conditions for completing the purchase. During the unusually long period from contract to sale, Richard was gracious to keep an eye on the property and take care of such issues as making sure that the property was battened down in the event of high force winds. As we approached the closing date and prepared to close down the home, Richard was once again extremely helpful in connecting us with local services that we would need to use such as waste disposal services, movers, organizations that would receive furniture donations, etc. During the two weeks we were packing up the home, Richard was always available to help in any way he could, including the facilitation of communication with the buyer. It was a joy to work with Richard and we would heartily endorse him to anyone interested in the purchase or sale of real estate in the area.The Benjamin Family, Admirals Cove Residents
You are a prince among men. You are definitely going above and beyond the call of duty helping us out in our time of need with our home sale. Thank you so much!Leonard Kedson, PGA National Resident
My husband and I are the proud and happy new owners of a home in Admirals Cove! This would not have happened without the professional and Impressive help of our Realtor, Richard Wood. We met Richard a year ago and he spent considerable time with us showing us properties in Admirals Cove and also familiarizing us with the entire area of Jupiter. He was extremely patient as we changed our parameters several times. His thoroughness, expertise and accessibility were exemplary. He also continually maintains a good sense of humor and amiable personality which also factors in to what makes a terrific Realtor. We plan on maintaining the friendship we developed with him once we move to Florida.Gail and Charles Zugerman, Admirals Cove Residents
Richard just helped us buy a home in Jupiter and working with him was a real pleasure. He didn’t try to find us a house, he tried to find us the perfect house at the perfect price. He has great insight into the area and always found time to get us in for a last minute viewing. He provided great input during the negotiating process, never applying pressure. We would not hesitate to use Richard again; in fact, we have already asked him to help us find a second property in the area!David and Carol “Lulu" Reisman, Loxahatchee Club Residents
Last year, Sara and I visited the Jupiter area with the idea of buying in the area. We were not very familiar with the area though and needed some help. Through luck, when we inquired about a property, Richard was the agent that reached out to us and it was quickly apparent that he provided a very high level of service and was very knowledgeable about the area and specific types of properties. After a few weeks of looking, we found a property that we liked and entered into a contract. Richard was very responsive in the back and forth that takes place in any transaction and once the transaction was closed, he introduced us to a contractor to help us with remodeling the property. We would highly recommend Richard to anyone looking to buy property in the Jupiter/Palm Beach Gardens area.Donald Stone, Frenchmans Reserve Resident
