Michael Snow

Richard Bridges

Managing Broker

Richard Bridges began his career in the real estate industry directly following high school. After obtaining his license at 20 years old, he went on to become one of the youngest licensed real estate instructors in the state of Virginia. Being forced to learn how to sell real estate during the economic collapse of 2008 positioned Richard to survive a challenging market climate by honing his skills in marketing. At the age of 23 he earned his Brokers License and began to grow his own real estate team. The Bridges Team went on to earn top honors on both the local and national scenes. In 2014, Richard was selected as a top 50 finalist for The National Association of Realtor’s prestigious 30 Under 30 award. The following year, The Bridges Team assisted over 100 families with buying or selling a home in the DC Metro Area.  Richard was appointed the Managing Broker of the  Weichert Realtors Eastern Prince William office in January of 2016, which helped to cement his leadership reputation in Northern Virginia. Having the opportunity to be a sales leader to over 75 agents allowed him to lead his office to second in local market penetration for 2016. After spending more than 18 months with Weichert Realtors, Richard received an opportunity to join one of the fastest growing brokerages in Virginia, Pearson Smith Realty (PSR). He jumped at the chance and began working for PSR on August 24th 2017. He plans to manage their Prince William Office location, once opened in early 2018.

Lastly, and most importantly; Richard Bridges is a husband and father to 4 beautiful children. His wife Ashley has been the most supportive person to Richard and has been instrumental in his life pursuits. Their four children are Ethan (12), Jack (11), Lily (10), and Emma (8). The family currently resides in Stafford, Virginia. Richard’s top priority in life is his family and he understands the challenges of achieving the often difficult work/life balance in real estate.”
