Richard Oreck is the broker/owner of Coldwell Banker Mountain Gate Properties. Born and raised in Los Angeles he graduated from UCLA with a bachelors degree in psychology.

Employed at a private clinic he worked as a therapist with children who experienced learning, emotional, and movement difficulties.

In 1971 he moved to Mount Shasta where his degree and experience were not helpful in finding employment.

In this wondrous, new world he learned to use a chain saw, raise goats and chickens, drive in snow, and many other activities that most people from Los Angeles never experience. He had great adventures splitting and selling cedar fence rails, gathering and marketing used railroad ties, and other odd things to make a living. In 1975, while employed at the local ski shop, he earned his real estate license and began a whole new career.

Four years later with two new agents he opened Mountain Gate Properties. His guiding force was to create a real estate office based on the principles of honesty, integrity, and professionalism in which clients’ needs were given first priority. In 1995 he purchased a franchise from Coldwell Banker and the office became Coldwell Banker Mountain Gate Properties. Richard’s real estate career has been a wonderful opportunity for learning, personal growth, making new friends, and the rewards of assisting people in fulfilling their dreams and needs. With over 40 years in real estate, his great depth of experience and knowledge enables him to provide a high level of support to both his clients and his real estate agents.

Richard loves the natural beauty and magic of the outdoors. He hikes, snowshoes, kayaks, occasionally rides his mountain bike, and seeks any opportunity to be outside. He enjoys travel, camping, meditation, reading, etc. He is fascinated by the magnificence of life and is thankful to be alive in this incredible time of adventure and change.
