Richard NatowRichard Natow is true to the entrepreneurial spirit!  Richard began his business career when, as a young man he was an owner of an advertising and marketing company.  He entered the real estate business selling residential homes. He quickly developed a niche of selling land to builders and developers and then marketing the new home developments. He consistently was the top listing agent and selling agent for the region’s largest real estate company.  

Richard also understands the benefits of diversification. He began to sell as well as purchase commercial investment properties. He also became involved with development opportunities. 

In 1987 Richard realized his dream and formed The Prestige Group. Richards real estate background, including sales, marketing, investment properties, as well as involvement in building and development gives him an understanding of the entire scope of the real estate industry.

Richard has been the recipient of numerous marketing awards by the Chester/Delaware Counties Home Builders Association. He has also been honored to be a judge for other regional Home Builder Associations. 

Richard has an uncanny intuition for knowing what’s ahead for the industry.  His remarkable insight into people and “the art of the deal” are the key to the success of Prestige Group and our clients. 

An open door policy with management, sales and administration allows for a collaboration of ideas and problem solving techniques.

In the spirit of giving back, Richard supports various non-profit groups with his time and expertise for their building projects.
