Glen Riggs believes buyers should feel just as comfortable with their real estate agent as they would any home they consider buying. He makes it his priority to build a rapport and get to know them and their families so he can deliver the property of their dreams.
Born and raised in Livermore, California, Glen lived in Las Vegas for 10 years but has always called the Bay Area home. Glen spent 20 years in the hospitality industry, which ignited his love for connecting with people while helping them grow, nurturing their happiness, and earning their trust. During that time, he obtained a B.A. in leadership and organizational studies from Saint Mary’s College of California. His first real estate experience was as a handyman in the early 2000s, making repairs listed in real estate disclosures. His passion for it began to take off after purchasing his first home. Glen has since bought and sold several of his own homes and helped family members do the same. But he is just as attentive to his sellers, from their home’s listing to their celebratory closing.
As enthusiastic as Glen is about the personal side of real estate, he also has a soft spot for a good challenge that hearkens back to his corporate days. Some of his favorite professional experiences involve transforming a no-win situation into a triumphant outcome. As a result of Glen’s learning and development background, he believes development is the key to success for everything, from real estate to relationships.
Family is the most important thing in Glen’s life, including his husband, son, and chocolate Labrador, Paige. Glen and his husband adopted their son from foster care, and Glen moved back to Livermore to be closer to family while raising him. Paige is also an adopted family member, from a Labrador rescue! Glen is passionate about music. He works as a wedding DJ on weekends and served as director of a community chorus for many years. When it comes to the holidays, Glen is anything but subtle. His home is adorned with more than 4,000 Christmas lights — set to music, of course! — and his buffet-style Thanksgivings rarely have fewer than 40 family and friends in attendance.
