‘Freedom Pathfinder’ to offer luncheon keynote address

FAIRFIELD — A Northern California Realtor and motivational speaker known as “The Freedom Pathfinder” for his approach to helping people find homes is the keynote speaker at the American Home Week luncheon.

Rick Geha began his real estate career when he was 22 years old. He received his license in May 1980 in Northern California while he was still finishing a degree in biology at Cal State Hayward and also working at the family restaurant business.

After finishing his degree, and his work with the family business, Geha ventured full-time into real estate in 1987.

He experienced a tumultuous start, but became the top performer in the small, family owned Good Real Estate office. He was asked to manage a small, local office of a large independent chain named Contempo Realty in 1993. That office had 20 agents. By 1997, he had grown it to about 50 agents, while still being a top-selling agent himself.

The chain was purchased by Cendant in March 1997, and it went on to be a Century 21 Contempo Realty 21 office company. The Fremont branch, that Geha managed, in 1999, was named the No. 2 Century 21 worldwide in volume and No. 6 in units, out of 7,500 offices worldwide.

This honor was repeated in 2000.

The company was sold to Coldwell Banker in 2000, and, when the upper management changed, Geha began looking for his next opportunity.

He joined Keller Williams Realty in November 2001. He had a passion for people and their reasons for doing what they do, and found Keller Williams was a place to pursue that. He also wanted to pursue his passion of speaking, coaching, mentoring and training.

In the past 15 years, Geha has participated in more than 1,000 classes and workshops all over the U.S. and Canada. He has had daily inspirational video blogs, and has done keynotes in front of varied groups of professionals from all walks of life, not just real estate.

Today, Geha is part owner of four Keller Williams Realty franchises in Northern California and oversees the operation of the Pleasanton franchise. He still runs the “Rick Geha and Preiyaa Anand” team in the Fremont office of Keller Williams Realty, as he has just “rebuilt” his team for the fourth time in his career. The team is on track to do about $25 million in business this year.

Geha has two sons, Anthony, 26, and Joseph, 23. He lives in Pleasant Hill.

The luncheon takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 9 at The Clubhouse at Rancho Solano, 3250 Rancho Solano Parkway in Fairfield. For tickets or more information, call 422-5306 or 718-0123. It’s organized by the Northern Solano County Association of Realtors. Proceeds benefit Heather House in Fairfield and Opportunity House in Vacaville.
