With nearly three decades of experience, real estate wunderkind Richard Maize has cultivated a reputation for being an expert in finance, marketing and real estate through hard work and a bit of an addiction to complex business puzzles. After graduating from California State University Northridge, Maize entered headlong into an industry where he would make his indelible mark. In college he purchased his first real estate property. By the time he was 28, he owned almost 1000 apartment units. He liquidated many of them and In 1988, Maize founded a mortgage banking company that he helped grow to be one of the most reputable, largest firms in the country.
Maize eventually sold his highly regarded mortgage banking firm and parlayed its success into investments in other business ventures. Though Richard currently owns properties in 20 states, his real passion is staying current and perpetually challenged in business. This need has led him to invest and partner with companies as diverse as a public relations firm to a food truck enterprise.
Though a shrewd businessman, Richard also enjoys investing in causes as well as businesses and devotes much of his time doing philanthropic work through the Rochelle & Richard Maize Foundation with his wife Rochelle Maize.
He currently lives in Beverly Hills, California with his wife Rochelle and their two daughters, Amanda and Ally.
