A bit about me. I retired as a detective with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in 1995. I then relocated to the San Francisco Bay area and started a Private Investigative business. This business grew to a staff of thirteen investigators with four clerical staff. In 1999, I sold this business and subsequently relocated to the City of Round Rock, Texas.
I truly enjoy helping people and this is why my transition into Real Estate is so fulfilling. I have found that Real Estate transactions inevitably go smoother with an Agent who has a professional team behind him. That is exactly what I Have been able to do. I have the resources that allow you to tap into an established outstanding team.
Having relocated a few times myself, I am well aware of the emotions and logistics involved with making a move. My team has grown to include professionals that are ready to answer any questions you have and assist with any need that arises regarding your move.
We all know that whether you decide to sell or purchase a home, the transaction can be an emotional roller coaster. So whether you are moving from another state or just across the street, you need a licensed REALTOR@ that can get you through the process with all the excitement while limiting the drama. Let me help you with your all Real Estate needs, be it buying, selling or leasing.
I also speak Spanish if this would be helpful to you.

Rich and his team were very professional. They genuinely cared about our needs. We can tell that they want to do right by their client: us. We highly recommend him and his team if you are looking for a professional, responsive, and caring realtor. Thank you Rich! – A.D.
Rich Calzada was absolutely amazing to work with. He walked us through every step of the process of buying our first home while providing top-tier service. We came on a one-week house-hunting trip to Texas, and he did a fantastic job of orienting us to the area as he drove us around to look at houses. He is really friendly and personable, and we felt like he was in our corner taking a genuine interest in helping us find our new home. After getting our offer accepted, he did an incredible job of negotiating amendments on our behalf and even went with the home inspector to the inspection so he could give us a first-hand explanation of the report. He was extremely responsive and gave us all the support we needed through our first-time home buying experience. You can't pick a better realtor! – Jared Black
Where can I possibly start with Rich Calzada, there are not enough words to express how thankful we are to him for the exceptional work he provided us with.

Richard Calzada was a dream realtor! He knows the business and is works for you! Just tell him what you are looking for and he'll make it happen. We were initially looking to rent and Rich showed us that we could actually buy! Reaching out to JB Goodwin was one of the best decisions we ever made and now our dream home is ours! – Alexandria Servantez
My wife and I are looking at Austin for possible relocation and met with Rich from JB Goodwin. He spent a lot of time with us, and showed us all the homes we wanted to see. His advice and expertise are really helpful, and we are definitely going to use his services when we make the move. Thank you Rich! – Jay Emery
We just moved to TX from out of state - such a stressful time! Our agent, Rich Calzada, did an amazing job of helping to alleviate some of that stress when it came time to find a new house. We came to town and I had 3 days to look at houses - only 3 days to find our perfect home. Rich patiently took us to see over 2 dozen houses in the greater Austin area. With each stop, he learned more of what we were looking for and helped narrow down our field of choices. I never felt pressured to settle for a house that wasn't the right fit. In the end, with Rich's help, we found a BEAUTIFUL home that we adore! We would gladly recommend Rich Calzada to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. – Kristin Gust
Rich Calzada, our agent, did a fantastic job helping my wife and I find a great house. He listened carefully to what we were looking for and showed us areas around Austin that met our list of requirements. In the end, we found a house that is all we wanted and more. – Jim Gust
Rich Calzada went not only the extra mile, but 200 extra miles to help us get the home we wanted! In all the ups and downs of offers, counters, inspection issues and questions, he kept us calm and focused on the important things. He’s the best!!! – Gayle Bellomy
Rich Calzada was not only knowledgeable within his chosen career, as an agent, but also understanding of the needs of each and every individual he works with. Listening to their wants and dreams for a home of their own. My family moved from out of state and it would be an understatement to say we had some difficulties. Rich was with us all the way and went way beyond the call of duty, for us. Thank you Rich!!! – Elena Elliott
