Executive Team

Richard B. Francis

Founder and Chairman of the Board

A business manager since 1965, Richard B. Francis has built a practice dedicated to safeguarding the assets of high net-worth individuals. Known for his conservative approach and long-term outlook, Mr. Francis has overseen the acquisition, management and disposition of over 150 residential properties over his more than 40 years in business.

Many of Mr. Francis’ clients are lifelong investors and his approach has allowed them to draw comfortable livings and secure retirements from the real estate investments they made with him.

Many of these clients have passed on these investments to their children (and grandchildren), and many of these children are now adults investing with Francis Property as well. Mr. Francis is proud that his sons can carry on the legacy he created.

Richard B. Francis holds a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from Brooklyn College.

“I started off investing for my business management clients, so my main goal was protecting their initial capital, while also allowing for appreciation and cash flow. After looking at a lot of investments, real estate made the most sense… and it still does.”— Richard B. Francis
