Pyramid Brokerage Company’s 2021 Real Estate Salesperson of the Year

Every year Pyramid Brokerage Company takes a moment to pause, reflect, and look back at the past year and, in doing so, acknowledge the achievements of our agents. During the course of the 2021 sales year, one agent stood out among the rest.

This year we are thrilled to recognize Richard Schechter from Buffalo as our top performing agent throughout Pyramid’s 10 Upstate New York offices. Richard has been awarded the 2021 Real Estate Salesperson of the Year as a result of his unprecedented closing rate and dogged determination despite the unpredictable and unstable pandemic real estate market.

Born and raised in Syracuse, Richard graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a Bachelor’s Degree (Magna Cum Laude), law degree, and a Masters in Business Administration (with honors). He started his career as an attorney in the Erie County Department of Law, where he practiced for more than 12 years, rising to the rank of First Assistant County Attorney. During that time, Richard concentrated on many significant economic development projects which is where he found his true passion being involved with large and complex real estate transactions. He represented Erie County with respect to the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres lease negotiations, the Erie County Medical Center, virtually every department of County government and was the author of the County Law that Prohibited Smoking in Public Places and the Item Pricing/Scanner Accuracy Law.

Richard has been a broker with Pyramid for more than 20 years, and has spent his career making a record number of deals, as well as hundreds of industry connections. He makes himself available to his clients 24/7, paying attention to their needs and desires as he identifies and negotiates the best possible outcomes, always looking out for their best interests. His record speak for itself!

Richard has been awarded Pyramid’s highest honor, the Chairperson’s Club, meaning he was one of the top five, of 160+, brokers for seven of the past 11 years. He has also received Pyramid’s “Deal of the Year” award five of the past 10 years; the Frank Scuderi President’s Award four of the past 10 years; the Salesperson of the Year Award in the Buffalo office seven of the past 11 years; and the Salesperson of the Year Award throughout the Upstate New York Pyramid organization in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2017 & 2021; and was recipient of the 2017 NYSCAR “Largest Lease Transaction” and the “Highest Number of Transactions” Awards as well. That’s quite a list!

Pyramid couldn’t be more proud of Richard and his accomplishments and we look forward to seeing what’s next for him and his career. Please join us in congratulating Richard for all of his hard work and achievements and receiving, for the seventh time, the Pyramid Real Estate Salesperson of the Year Award!

Pyramid would also like to take a moment to recognize each and every broker, manager, support and marketing person in our offices, all of whom embodied our culture of excellence, integrity, and ingenuity and truly stepped up as trusted advisors to our clients, as well as to their communities. We look forward to another fantastic finish in 2022, working along Pyramid’s finest.
