Rick has been licensed with the state of Florida to practice in real estate since 1999.  His vision was to create a real estate company that focuses on honesty, integrity, and always to work in the best interest of the client/customer even if it conflicted with the short term interest of the company.  His personal believe is that, in the long run, honesty and integrity will always be in the best interest of everyone involved. This belief and commitment is the “heartbeat” of what Your Family Realty is about.
Rick was born in Aruba, Netherlands Antilles to a very loving and wise mother Vivian Wever (Aruban) and a very caring and intelligent father Amado Valdes (Cuban).  When he was 5 years old they migrated to the USA and, other than the time in the US military, he has since then called Miami his home.
Rick is a US veteran. Graduating early from high school, at 17, he joined the US Air Force and served proudly for four years.  He was honorably discharged and, among his earned medals and certificates, received the good conduct medal.  Rick also graduated in business with honors, Magna Cum Laude, from a highly ranked University.  He is using his unbreakable integrity, business knowledge, and extensive experience to serve the real estate community.
