Richard Rosetti

Buyer's Agent

Richard Rosetti

Richard is a native New Yorker who was hired immediately by ABC after graduating from Fordham Law School and passing the bar. After extensive travel, negotiating and making deals for broadcast venues, talent, and events, Richard was recruited by CBS and sent to California. At 31, he became a successful producer, executive, and writer of feature films and TV series and movies. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0742899/

Together with his wife he raised two daughters in Santa Monica and the Pacific Palisades where they lived for over 20 years. Sadly, in 2002, Naomi succumbed to breast cancer and Richard retired to spend more time with his daughters.

During his years in entertainment, Richard bought and sold dozens of homes and investment properties in Marina del Rey, Santa Monica, Maui, and Idyllwild, California, as well as Oregon, and the interest in buying and selling homes finally led him to become a realtor. Richard first met Tami Halton Pardee years before when they lived in the same community in Lake Oswego, Oregon, and were reunited in serendipity when Richard’s buyer purchased a home from Tami. Tami’s personal charisma, energized staff, and the company’s Life-Changer program made it a no-brainer decision.

Every day without fail, Richard carefully scours the local areas searching for properties for clients. His knowledge of the market and understanding of the buyer/seller dynamic allows him to find his clients the perfect home with the least amount of stress. And he’s proud to have consistently made money for his clients on the assessment of the value of their homes and sale of their valuable property assets.

Yoga, meditation, and photography keep Richard creatively fulfilled. Beach and mountain hikes around Santa Monica keep him happy and fit. Richard and his wife, Louisa, live in the Palisades Highlands and together with his daughters the family continues to raise funds to cure breast cancer in this lifetime.

Richard Rosetti and Cassandra Monnastes made buying my first house as smooth as possible. They are both amazing and worked hard to make sure I got everything…I wanted and needed to make it the perfect home. It is never an easy process, but they worked tirelessly to make sure I didn't have to deal with any of the issues directly. I highly recommend them to any one in the market!

Wonderful experience working with Richard Rosetti and Cassandra Monnastes. I also spent some time in both the Venice and the Santa Monica offices and enjoyed the professional…and friendly, warm atmosphere in both locations, as well as the help of the staff.

Richard and Cassandra make the home search experience a fun adventure. They also provide tremendous positivity, support and professionalism.

When I was considering a house that inspection proved to have a large mold problem, Richard advised me to walk away - reassuring me that we would find a better house without the problems.

Richard and Cassandra unfailingly affirmed that, even with evidence to the contrary, I would find and buy a great house - and I did!

I most highly recommend working with Richard, Cassandra, and the Halton-Pardee team.

My husband and I walked into an open house on Venice Beach and were lucky enough to be greeted by an affable and jovial gentleman named Richard Rosetti.…We immediately knew he was someone we wanted on our side while searching for our new home. Richard is smart, thoughtful and forever optimistic and these are qualities you need in an agent in this fast and furious market that defines Westside real estate. We worked with Richard for about six months to find our spot near the sand and all the while he was attentive and available, patient and persevering. Pardee and Tami were also a delight. We just closed on a condo thanks to Richard and it's beach living at it's best. We expect Richard to continue to be a dear part of our lives for years to come.

We were lucky enough to work with Richard Rosetti this past year and were so impressed by his honest and friendly approach to the house hunting process (something…you often don’t find!). He was available to us 24/7 and worked diligently to make sure all our questions were answered. He always had our best interests at heart and was able to go above and beyond, looking into issues and recommending solutions that were always in OUR best interest (even at the risk of losing the deal for him). We would highly recommend Richard to anyone who is looking for a hard working and wonderful real estate agent!

Thanks to Richard Rosetti, I just moved into my ideal home! Being new to Los Angeles, I had a lot of questions and concerns about the real estate…market, but Richard was patient, incredibly responsive, and honest throughout the process. Furthermore, as a picky buyer, Richard's optimism, hard work, and insight was a great asset. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home!
