Meet Alex

"I love how a home can change behavior based on its floor plan, the number of levels, or the garden connection that expands the inside to the outside. I love how the condition of a home communicates a story about its history and its potential. I love finding the best spot to be in a home’s landscape. And I love how a home can make a dramatic positive impact on those who live within."      - Alex


 Meet Alex and Rick

Alex Michas and Rick Richetta create an unparalleled client experience and are recognized as one of the most respected teams across the East Bay. Seasoned professionals with 35 years of rich real estate experience, they love conversations that unfold around market dynamics and timing, how homes compare, or the perfect way to market a home. 

Rick, known for his record setting sales at every price point and Alex, having sold a few of the most luxurious estates across the Bay Area, leverage prior careers in psychology and counseling to inform a client-focused approach. Their shared love of design and home transformations also brought them together and yet, they capitalize on their differences - Alex’s systems and methods and Rick's creativity makes a potent duo. 

When serving clients, the pair deliver thoughtful and comprehensive advisory services for those expecting a coordinated and tactical plan to transact in East Bay real estate.

In the fall of 2022 Alex supported a cherished client with the purchase of 26 Sea View for $23m - the highest priced residential home ever sold in Piedmont and throughout the East Bay.

A completely updated mid-century modern classic designed by famed architect Gardner Dailey, the home was built on a rare site of 2.75 private acres. The home is an entertainer's dream with Dailey's signature style of wide hallways, doors and windows that turn rooms into gardens.

Why Worry

100 Why Worry, is a mediterranean and equestrian estate set on secluded 8.7 acres in central Woodside. In 2023, Alex delivered measured counsel, thoughtful advice, and experience to help a client purchase this $33.5m residence overlooking manicured grounds surrounded by natural grasses, expansive lawn, apple orchard, and stunning oak and redwood trees.

Having found a lifestyle centered around the historic 10 stall barn and 3 guest apartments, his client found a home with absolute privacy and the serenity not found locally in years.
