Rich Valadez

As a REALTOR®, my job is to listen to my clients to understand their needs, challenges, and goals. Real estate transactions can be complex, fast-moving, and ever-changing. I’ve called San Antonio home for the past 20 years and have a deep understanding of this vibrant and growing market. As your advocate and trusted advisor, I am dedicated to leveraging my knowledge, skills, and expertise to help you achieve your real estate goals.

I’m with JB Goodwin because our mission is simple, “Help People.” Our first priority is helping people and providing the best customer service possible to our clients.

Over the past decade, my wife and I have built an income-producing real estate portfolio through buying and rehabbing properties. Our portfolio includes single-family rental homes, short-term rentals, and multifamily apartments. We also personally manage our properties. I earned the Housing Choice Voucher Specialist for REALTORS® (HCVS) Certification in 2019 to better serve my tenants and my community. 

Prior to Real Estate, I had the honor of joining a home-grown San Antonio technology start-up called Rackspace. At Rackspace, I was able to hone and practice my passion for helping others. Over my 11-year tenure, I worked in all areas of the business including Sales, Support, Operations, Knowledge Management, and HR. My last assignment at Rackspace gave me the amazing opportunity to serve as the Senior Director of Talent, leading teams across the world focused on Talent Development, Acquisition, Branding, and Marketing.

I am a proud Roadrunner and Rattler Alum. I received my bachelor’s degree in Marketing from the University of Texas at San Antonio and my MBA from St. Mary’s University.

I met my amazing wife in San Antonio and was lucky enough to marry her in 2007. We have two strong, bright, and adventurous daughters who also love real estate. When I’m not helping people with their real estate needs, you can find me playing golf, hiking with my family and dog, doing CrossFit, playing bass guitar, riding my motorcycle, taking photos, or traveling the world.

Call me when you are ready to take the next step on your real estate journey. I’m happy to help.

Rich Valadez, was quite simply, hands down, the best Realtor we could have worked with. We initially engaged with Richie back in the summer of 2021 and he came out, visited our home, talked us through his methodology. No hard sell, just great solid advice. For the next year we stayed close and he advised/educated me on more than one occasion around the vagaries of the Real estate market. When we were finally ready to action he moved at pace with just 10 days notice and hit the market hard getting us into a multiple offer situation and then walking us through the offer selection process laying everything out in simple terms. He then attended our closing, supporting us right through to the very end of the transaction. Richie is a people person and he takes his role as being your champion incredibly seriously. He knows just how important a real estate transaction is for a family and works his butt off to ensure your best interests are always at the forefront. You always feel like you are his only client. Finally, Rich lives and breaths Real Estate and it shows, add that to the fact he’s an amazingly talented and innovative person and you’re going to struggle to find anyone better than Richie. A real superstar!

” ~ Lyons Family
“Rich was a wealth of knowledge for our purchase, especially considering we were looking for an older home in a historic district. His expertise informed our final decision which we are so happy with.” ~ Lena & Marcus Leming
“Just purchased a home with the assistance of Rich Valadez and couldn't be happier. Rich was professional and had my best interest at hand 100% of the process. I have already recommended Rich to a family member looking for a new house.” ~ Michael Manschot
“Rich was beyond amazing. I can’t even put into words how much he exceeded our expectations. He went above and beyond and answered all our questions and concerns. He’s the best realtor I’ve ever dealt with. In the future, we will only ask for him.” ~ Maria Torres
“Richie has deep roots in San Antonio and was able to expertly guide through various neighborhood pockets to find the hidden gems and real estate investments. He had a rich knowledge of the areas and homes. He is highly responsive, professional, and accommodating. I found a beautiful home that I love!” ~ Britton Bloch
“I had the pleasure of working with Rich on a large scale project consolidating Rackspace's customer-facing support information. Rich is always able to drive conflict resolution to the best possible outcomes for internal and external customers. His positive outlook and high energy made the project enjoyable and helped it progress quickly toward successful completion. Rich has an extremely valuable talent of being able to work well with everyone and bring out their best. If you're looking for an extremely talented leader who can motivate and engage people to succeed, look no further than Richie. I would count myself lucky to have the opportunity to work with him again.” ~ Cynthia Baute
“Rich is one of my favorite Rackers. In the time I have known him, he has uncovered several business-critical issues to solve - then formed highly collaborative teams - and quickly set about solving. He has built a training delivery organization that provides targeted help for Rackers supporting customers. All with a big smile on his face. Kudos!” ~ Susan Michael Sorenen
“I've had the good fortune to work with Ritchie at Rackspace. His amazing energy and exuberance make him easy to spot in the work environment! Charismatic and direct, but humble enough to keep learning in an ever-changing field. Never afraid of a looming task; Rich is a natural leader.  ” ~ Humberto Varela
