Richard Kemp is a full-time, full-service Managing Broker in the Gig Harbor office of Coldwell Banker Bain and has been the top producing agent in that office since he joined the company in 1997, consistently earning Coldwell Banker’s highest achievement awards. CB Bain is one of only two Washington companies ranked by Realtor magazine in the top 100 real estate companies in the country, and among those CB Bain agents, Richard is in the top 0.5%. He has been one of the top 10 brokers in Washington State numerous times. And he has been distinguished by Seattle Magazine as among the “Best in Client Satisfaction.”
Richard has become a Top Agent by committing to this motto: Integrity, Knowledge, and Determination—A Work Ethic You Can Count On. Richard’s affiliation with The National Association of Realtors and his own personal convictions mean he subscribes to the REALTOR Code of Ethics in all his transactions. He holds a Managing Broker license, the highest level of state licensure. That advanced training and the fact that he has averaged 6 times more transactions than the average of agents in the top 100 companies allow him to provide his clients with a rare degree of contract and negotiation expertise, ensuring that they are protected throughout the purchase and sale process and get the best deal possible. The most distinguishing feature of Richard’s work ethic is his determination and problem-solving ability. Clients and other brokers alike will tell you: no one works harder; no one goes to greater lengths to advocate for his clients.
Richard is equally adept at helping his clients with residential real estate, condos, multi-family properties, vacant land transactions, commercial properties, and business opportunities. He represents clients in traditional, short sale, and foreclosure transactions.
Richard’s primary market area is Gig Harbor and the surrounding communities of Fox Island, Tacoma, University Place, the Key Peninsula, Port Orchard, Bremerton, Silverdale, and Poulsbo. But Richard also works with clients throughout the Greater Puget Sound, including Pierce, Kitsap, Mason, King, Snohomish, Thurston, and Lewis Counties.
You are invited to contact Richard Kemp anytime for all of your real estate needs. He is never too busy for you or your referrals.
began my professional life 20 years ago recognizing this: What I did
everyday had to have meaning, and I derive that sense of being on
purpose from helping others improve the quality of their lives. I also
knew that I loathed “sales” and the predatory relationship that often
underlies many transactions. Ironically, many consider real estate a
But I approach the business of real estate differently: A home is most
people’s greatest financial investment, and buying or selling that home
is one of the most stressful experiences, right up there with the death
of a loved one and divorce. Being a REALTOR®, then, is a perfect fit. It
gives me the opportunity to help people at a critical time in their
This commitment to helping others is further ingrained in my business
model by choosing to be a member of The National Association of
Realtors. Not all realtors are REALTORS®, and the difference is
important. As a REALTOR® I adhere to NAR’s strict code of ethics. Having
your heart in the right place is only part of the job though. You have
to have your head in the game, too. That is why I made education a
priority early in life. I have been fortunate to attend some of the
country’s better schools and earned a Master’s degree before leaving
college and starting my career.
Since then, I have been equally committed to my professional growth,
attending weekly training opportunities and pursuing the academic bench
marks of the profession. I have earned the e-Pro certification offered
through NAR, a program designed to provide REALTORS® with the state of
the art technology skills necessary to effectively serve their clients’
interests in today’s web-based business culture. I have been certified
by the National Association of REALTORS® as an Accredited Buyers
Representative, the benchmark of excellence in Buyer Representation.
