Richard McBride, CEO and Co-Founder of SwingSpace

Richard is a native Washingtonian and Georgetown University graduate with 30+ years of commercial real estate experience. In 2002 Richard borrowed a desk in a friend’s office and founded McBride Real Estate Services, Inc., now one of DC’s top commercial real estate companies. Throughout his career, Richard has striven to apply new technologies in commercial real estate including creating the first computerized office lease analysis in 1983, founding a VAR (Systems Engineering Solutions) to support his client’s IT needs in the 1990’s, building a client services intranet in the 2000’s and developing a full suite of proprietary analytical tools exclusively for McBride’s brokers and clients.

Richard is also a life-long athlete and avid surfer, whose passion for surfing far exceeds his skill at riding waves.
