Experience Makes the Difference

Richard H. Zwick is an author, Realtor® and Investor. He lives on two acres in Deland, Florida with his wife and two rescued cats…soon to also include dogs, goats, chickens, and bees! (yes, bees!) This was his dream – to get back to his roots of growing up and working on family farms in Connecticut and later having organic gardens in New Hampshire. After spending 8 years in Halifax, Nova Scotia with his wood stove and heating business, Richard sold that business, got his real estate license and later moved to Central Florida. He has been in real estate in the Orlando area for over 31 years and has 26+ years of experience with foreclosures and investing. He has even traveled the country teaching people how to buy and sell real estate. Currently, Richard lives and works in W. Volusia County, between Orlando and Daytona. He focuses on the foreclosure and investment markets (single family, multi-family & MH parks),  in Central Florida – primarily N. Seminole, W. Volusia, E. Lake and N. Orange counties.

The Zwick Realty Group is committed to tackling this foreclosure crisis head-on by helping one homeowner at a time and that includes home buyers and investors since everyone is involved in the solution. His Community Residential Redevelopment Program is designed to restore equity and home ownership with integrity, and investors are key to making that happen.

Zwick Realty Group Team members consist of trusted mortgage brokers who get results for first time home buyers and investors alike, a reliable and fast title company, attorneys for foreclosure defense and short sales, a full time negotiator team for short sales, support staff including a closing team, property managers, professional property inspectors & appraisers, experienced investors, experienced real estate attorneys for lease options, option contracts and land trusts, experienced and bilingual real estate agents, trusted and licensed handymen and contractors. 

In addition to his 26+ years experience with foreclosures, Richard is a Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) Realtor®. A CDPE is a real estate professional who puts the homeowner or home buyer first . A CDPE Realtor fully understands that saving someone’s home or credit (short sale) can save a life, which can save a family, save a community and save a future. Richard and Zwick Realty Group have the tools and experience needed to help homeowners find the best solution for their situation. A Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) has the specific understanding of the complex issues confronting the real estate industry…the realtor, the homeowner, the home buyer and the investor alike.


The Zwick Realty Group of Sand Dollar Realty take a different approach from most companies - it is one that is built on personal touches, a professional approach and positive results...for your Real Estate needs, not theirs.

RICHARD ZWICK utilizes the latest technologies, market research and business strategies to meet your expectations. However, more importantly, he listens and that means he finds solutions that are tailored to you.

Richard has been involved in the Real Estate industry since 1984 and been a part of well over 1,500 Real Estate deals in one manner or another...agent, buyer, seller, investor. Zwick Realty Group and Richard are not only "Investor Friendly", they are investors.

Richard has owned a brokerage, been a national trainer and teacher to those who wanted to learn how to use Real Estate as an investment vehicle, and continues today as an active agent and leader of the Zwick Realty Group.

Richard states: "I have been on both sides of the fence so to speak, so I know how it feels to buy a house, sell a house, get financing, fix up a house, flip a house and more. I have even been involved in commercial and multi-family real estate deals."

With over 27 years real estate experience, Richard has become an expert in negotiation and consistently gets better than expected results for his buyers and sellers. When the going gets tough, as it does in real estate, Richard has proven his worth in keeping deals together to go to closing. In fact, he's known as "The 11th Hour Miracle Man". Suffice it to say, Richard and his team will not quit on you if you are committed to following through with them. [Note - THIS market is particularly challenging because most of the sellers are banks and lenders. Oddly enough, they do not always want to sell...even when the numbers dictate that it is in their best interest!]

You want Richard and his team of professionals working for you in all aspects of a Real Estate transaction. In this market, Experience Makes a Big Difference! It can save you from a lot of heartache and costly mistakes and instead Make Real Estate Easy.
