A 30 year resident of southern Litchfield County, Rich brings a unique background to the real estate profession. He began his professional life as an attorney specializing in real estate in New York and Connecticut.  For eight years Rich was an adjunct professor of law at Pace University Law School in White Plains NY, where he taught real estate transactions and mortgage law classes.  Rich may be one of the few people in town who can  explain the role of collateralized debt obligations in the 2008 economic crash.

Rich began a second career as a professional photographer in 1995, which he transitioned to full time in 1998. He gained international publishing and corporate clients during the next 17 years, specializing in home interiors and gardens.  Rich's clients included the White Flower Farm catalogue and Miracle Gro, as well as most home & garden magazines. Three books of his photographs were commercially published and he reached the goal most photographers only dream about - having his images published by National Geographic!  He has taught photography at the NY Botanical Gardens and at venues throughout the country.

In 2012 Rich returned to the real estate world as an agent where he has consistently been a top performer, increasing his sales and listing numbers each year. Service is not just a word to Rich, it is the reason he is in this business. 

Rich has been involved in many local community organizations and activities over his three decades in the community. He has been a member of the boards of directors of the Eliot Pratt Outdoor Education Center, Chestnut Grove Community Housing, the New Milford Chamber of Commerce and the Washington Art Association. He is a member of the Washington Club where he is under mounting pressure because he has won a championship in a different tennis ladder every year!   He is a board member of the Greater Washington Coalition for Jewish Life.

Rich is a grandfather to a toddler, enjoying every moment he can get with his beautiful granddaughter. Rich is also an avid gardener, tennis player and skier.

Gareth Lambert

Rich Pomerantz did an outstanding job and we are grateful for all his help!

Bradley & Janelle McDermott

I was fortunate to work with a wonderful realtor. Rich Pomerantz was extremely professional, patient, and always there for me when I needed his time, advice and help. I am truly thankful for that experience

Geraldine Rio

I had been trying to sell my antique house for a few years during a difficult time in the local real estate market before I listed it with Rich. He brought a calm, yet firm, proactive approach to selling my home and had it under contract in under two months. Rich listened carefully to my goals and worked tirelessly to ensure they were met. He was informative, professional, responsive and always available when I needed him. Rich has integrity and all of the right skills for the job.

Anne - seller in Woodbury, CT

Rich Pomerantz was very helpful in finding an antique house for us in Litchfield county that met all of our specifications. He was also extremely helpful in providing information about the real estate purchase process (negotiation through closing) and as we were from out of town, provided names and contacts for attorneys, insurance and renovation contractors. Rich made the experience of looking for, finding, and buying a house easy and enjoyable and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a house in Litchfield county

Caryn Kurland

I leave this review at the risk of 5-star overload, but Rich Pomerantz truly earned it and deserves it. I have been coming to the area for many years, so I had a good general sense of where I wanted to find my country home. I cast a wide net and probably drove Rich crazy. He never let on, and was at all times professional, informative, and readily made himself available for showings. Since I was coming up from the city, he was able to accommodate my schedule and even showed me 7 houses in one day, with my extended family in tow. Rich’s ‘value add’ was the way he conjured up a contractor to look at houses with him when I couldn’t be there myself. He also dug into questions I had with the local zoning office, and never hesitated to follow up with listing brokers. Rich was a pleasure to deal with, put me in touch with a great local mortgage officer, and set me up with contact information for tradespeople I needed. If you are looking for the realtor who goes above and beyond, Rich is your man.

Katie Marcon

You will not find a better broker or person to deal with in Northwestern Connecticut than Rich Pomerantz. Helped me buy my first home coming from Brooklyn and having no familiarity with Litchfield County. Rich was extremely knowledgeable about the area, home prices, property conditions, schools and so on. He gave me a wonderful introduction to Litchfield County and was a tremendous help in getting through the entire purchase process. The referrals he's made to me for inspections and upgrades were really valuable, he knows the best contractors and inspectors. Can't thank him enough for the huge amount of work he put into this modest but important purchase for my family. His education, experience and great personality will serve you well in selling or buying a home of any size, highly recommend Rich Pomerantz!

Rob McClary

Rich is a great realtor. He is very responsive and truly goes above and beyond! We worked with him twice - once finding a rental and then again when we were looking to buy a house. We have also recommended him to friends who had an equally positive experience!

Sara and Tom Brant

Rich was instrumental in helping to sell my house and at the same time find a new home for me to purchase. He understood what was going to sell my home and in less than three months on the market, buyers wanted to purchase it. (This was after being unsuccessful over 6 months with another realtor/realty company) Rich demonstrated his expertise and knowledge of the selling process as he facilitated broker-open houses, created professional marketing materials, worked with professional photographers to the time he helped me get thru all the necessary selling processes from buyer inspections to final closing. Rich also spent time looking for new homes for me as we now had a closing date to shoot for. His knowledge about this area was so appreciated. Turned out we found the perfect home for me. Throughout this whole process, Rich was very responsive to all that was needed for all parties involved. Sometimes that meant staying on top of what other realtors/brokers were to do, what was on my plate or my buyers or my sellers plates to do. Rich juggled lots and did it all until necessary steps were completed or matters were resolved. I could not have done all that needed to be done in a matter of months without him. I highly recommend Rich as your realtor whether you are selling, buying or both.

Suzanne Serbia

Rich did a great job as our realtor, he gave us advice but wasn't pushy, he communicated well with the other agent and helped us stay cool when the seller procrastinated etc. closing was clean as can be. would recommend to a friend.

Gabrielle and Zachary Githens

Rich helped us find and purchase a home in CT. We were moving from NY and did not know the area very well. Rich showed us lots of houses and when we picked our now home he was incredible helpful. His expertise and service are above average. His knowledge of real estate law, his timely responses, friendly attitude and overall help was just what we needed to make this a smooth transition. We will and have highly recommended Rich to anyone who is looking to purchase a home in the CT area. Excellent Realtor!!

Sandy Trimarchi

Rich represented us for both purchase and sale of our current homes and we could not have been more pleased with his expertise. He is a solid performer who knows the local market and can handle negotiations on both sale and purchase like the true expert he is. He also managed to negotiate both sale and purchase to close on the same day so we avoided having to stay at a Hotel, or worse, staying with relatives... He also knows exactly how to handle any situation that arises in both areas of sale and purchase of the area he serves. I have purchased and sold several homes in the past 15 years and Rich is by far the best Realtor I have come across in all of my previous transactions.
