RICHARD MICHAEL ABRAHAM
Richard Michael Abraham is the Founder of The REDI Foundation. Following his studies as a teaching fellow in Boston University’s MBA program, he joined Kaiser Aetna where he contributed to the development of real estate across America.
He formed his own firm and participated in over $5 billion dollars in commercial, residential, retail and resort properties in 25 U.S. states.
In 1995, as the Internet revolutionized public information and impacted privacy, he intentionally chose greater anonymity in his real estate development activities.
Mr. Abraham received a Master’s Degree from Brown University. His interest in education, and sharing of knowledge led him to the formation of The REDI Foundation, an educational institute in the field of real estate development.

In his Legacy Course/Program, Richard Michael Abraham is paying forward to help enterprising students across the world achieve success as real estate developers.
