Assisting You in Achieving Your Real Estate Goals
Richard Schleicher, MBA, GRI
Licensed Real Estate Broker
I have lived in Ocala, Florida, since 1991 and began in Real Estate as an investor, so I came to the job with a different angle than many. Having been in Health Care sales for 15 years before becoming a REALTOR also supplied me with a unique sales background. Education is very important to me. I received my BA and MBA from St. Leo University and have applied my sales experience and education to my real estate career. I have lived in the SE Ocala for many years and have been involved in the renovation of over 25 homes. I enjoy going to the beach, sailing, keeping fit, socializing with friends, and enjoying Ocala's art community.
When you are buying or selling property in today's real estate market, it's important to have confidence in your Real Estate professional. My commitment as your Ocala REALTOR is to provide you with the specialized real estate service you deserve.
When you are an informed buyer or seller, you'll make the best decisions for the most important purchase or sale in your lifetime. That's why my goal is to keep you informed on trends in the marketplace using the latest statistics in your local area. With property values continuing to increase, real estate is a sound investment for the future.
As an Ocala area expert with knowledge of the various communities, my objective is to work diligently to assist you in meeting your real estate goals.
The purchase or sale of a property is an important milestone that deserves a real estate agent who makes the experience All About You. My purpose is to ensure that every one of my clients understand each step of the buying and selling process.
A little about me: I am a dog lover (as you can probably tell). I enjoy a healthy lifestyle including going to the gym and walking with my dog at our beautiful parks. I am also a big baseball fan (go Rays)!
Having worked as a high school teacher with 15 years of experience, I value and understand the importance of good communication. Listening to the needs and concerns of my clients is essential. This level of dedication and passion is what drives me everyday to find your dream home or obtain the best offer for your property.
For me, there is no more gratifying feeling than the one I get from ensuring that my clients’ real estate needs are met. I take pride in my resourcefulness, determination to find solutions, and knowledge of the marketplace. I will make it my responsibility to assure that you achieve your buying or selling goals.
As a former commercial real estate attorney, my attention to detail and negotiating skills make buying and selling a home stress-free and enjoyable. Whether I'm guiding a buyer by purchasing their first home or marketing a unique historic or waterfront property, I work with my clients to develop an individual game plan to achieve their goals. Maintaining communication from the first phone call to beyond the closing, I ensure my clients are well informed and ready to make the best decisions every step of the way.
Most of all, I love what I do. Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote, "Home is the nicest word there is." I agree. That's why buying or selling a home is one of the most important decisions we make. It's my great pleasure to make this process smooth and successful for my clients.

I believe my passion for architecture and the outdoors help me connect with clients who seek unique properties and homes located near natural resources and recreation amenities. I love working with relocation customers and introducing them to all the wonderful experiences and ammenities that Ocala, Marion County, and the Northern Central Florida area has to offer.
As the daughter of a general contractor I grew up spending many weekends, school holidays, and summer months on job sites helping with everything from surveying a future home's evelations to hanging kitchen cabinets. I always admired my father's attention to detail and eye for good design. As an adult I have done my best to emulate this, particularly while tackling four historic home renovations of my own. My community connections with expert craftsmen and trades individuals are a resouces to my clients during the buying and selling process.
I work hard, and I like to strategize in advance with my sellers to properly position their home in the marketplace. Sometimes it means identifying maintenance issues that may create challenges for a buyer to secure insurance or a loan. I love interior staging, paring down to the essentials, looking for the best angles, and determining the best features to highlight. Effective marketing is an art and excites me! The details are often what makes the difference.
