Richard first became interested in Travel and Real Estate while earning an MBA from Baruch College in New York City – owning a retail travel agency, managing one of the first ‘cruise-only’ travel agencies, working with wholesale travel management software and eventually being recruited by IBM’s Prodigy Services to work with American Airlines to develop their eAAsySABRE reservation system which evolved into Travelocity.
While studying real estate as part of his MBA program at Baruch - Richard purchased an old tenement in New York City's East Harlem neighborhood for only $15,000. The neighbors laughed at him for paying too much money - since they claimed to have been able to buy it a year before for only $6,500. However, the building had 3 commercial spaces and 6 apartments on a major avenue in New York City and after renovation turned out to be a great investment!
While still at IBM – Richard took on a major project of purchasing and redeveloping Captain’s Quarters Hotel on the tiny Caribbean Island of Saba, Netherlands Antilles (near St. Maarten). Although Richard was born in Connecticut, the Holm family was originally from Saba since the early 1700’s. On the eve of re-inaugurating the formerly run-down resort as the new ‘Captain’s Quarters Resort and International Arts Center’ – Hurricane Georges destroyed the entire resort complex in a matter of hours in September 1998.
However, it all worked out well – with Richard moving to San Juan and working extensively with the Caribbean Hotel Association while establishing Caribbean Consulting and Puerto Rico Property Sales.
After helping clients with their real estate investment and development strategy for over a decade - Richard is now a licensed real estate broker (Lic. C-18922) in Puerto Rico and can help you find your perfect Caribbean dream home or business in Puerto Rico.
Clients often can't imagine what a house will look like after renovation. Here is my house before and after renovation.
