Richard focuses on Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) lending as a way to help homeowners realize their goals and also lessen the housing crisis and narrow the wealth gap. He is committed to providing resources to underserved communities that can increase wealth, health and happiness.
A desire to “lend for better” drew Richard to Craft3. His career as a mortgage lender has provided firsthand experience of the inequities in housing access that many people face. “Many BIPOC communities have not been provided the same level of opportunities and support that the broader population has enjoyed for generations.”
Richard joined Craft3 in 2022. He has volunteered with King County Sexual Assault Resource Center (KSARC) for 11 years, and is a past Board member of the Auburn Symphony Orchestra. In his free time he enjoys reading, skiing, taking in Seahawks games and home canning.
