Richard Hui, Sales Representative
Richard’s passion for real estate investment and development over the years has brought him to this stage in his career where he has completed his certification as a Licensed Realtor. Prior to joining Dave Roach Realty, Richard was in the private sector as a transportation planning and engineering consultant for 15 years, and in the most recent 15 years, he worked in the public sector for a Regional and local government as the Manager of Transportation Planning. While he was in the public sector, Richard took pride in providing customer service to developers, politicians, and residents on issues related to development applications, traffic engineering, and transportation planning. He is a graduate of the University of Calgary and the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Civil Engineering.
Over the years, Richard has worked with both Dave and Katherine as a client and has trusted their advice and management of his investment properties. Their work ethic and professionalism have inspired Richard to pursue this new career path and follow his passion to help others fulfill their real estate goals.

Richard and Helen have a son who keeps them on their toes. In his spare time, Richard likes to play racquet sports including badminton, squash, tennis, and ping pong. He is also a collector of stamps, paper money, and sports cards. He is a regular on eBay.
Getting to Know Richard
|What is your favourite time of day?||My favourite time of day is when we “fall back” and gain one hour as daylight saving time ends. I love knowing that I have an extra hour to finish that movie or just sleep in.|
|What is your favourite pizza?||Anything with bacon and double cheese!|
|Which cartoon character do you resemble the most?||Donald Duck’s nephew, “Huey”.|
|What is the best advice you’ve been given?||My grade 8 math teacher, Ms. Matheson, gave me 99% on my report card and said she couldn’t give me 100% because “nobody is perfect”. That humbled me as a teenager. It made me give 110% in everything I decided to do from that time onwards.|
|On a scale of 1-10, how strict were your parents?||Dad was always a 10 – just read his newspaper and didn’t say much, but you knew you screwed up if he ever said one word. Mom was a 9, almost a “Tiger Mom”, when it came to schoolwork, but was a generous and gentle 2 when it came to food and friends.|
