We pride ourselves in our diverse, worldly, and dynamic team here at Urbanests, and we want you to get to know us better!
Today, we are profiling Thatcher Richins! Thatcher is a Motorsport enthusiast, loves anything mechanical, and really knows his way around SF ( read on for some incredible insider recommendations for cool spots in SF!)
Where are you from originally?
What brought you to SF?
I was here very very often growing up. So, from a young age, I fell in love with the hustle and bustle of city life. I think that kind of vibrant, busy environment is something I thrive in, personally. I also wanted to move away from Santa Cruz – Amazingly living here was cheaper than the insane population bloat and impossible rental market that came from UCSC!
Tell us an interesting fact about you.
Do you have any hobbies, talents, or interests?
Anything mechanical. Without a garage, recently i’ve been building and painting models of mechanical things real or ficticious.
How are you involved at Urbanests?
I do general operations work for the company, but I also manage the property at 1010 Bush Street. Since I manage the property, I also live there, and I love it. The Balmoral, or 1010 Bush Street. Lower Nob Hill is a great neighborhood that’s pretty much at the center of everything.
1010 Bush Residences
Do you know any secret spots in the city we should know about?
There’s about a hundred public private spaces in the city, that most people don’t know about. The best maintained one I’ve seen is on top of the Fairmont Hotel.
What is your favorite thing to do in the city?
Riding around between errands or on the way to meet up with people. You’ll never see the whole city just by walking or taking the bus. Always try to take a slightly different route and you’ll be able to get around without your phone in no time.
Got a restaurant recommendation for us?
Yes! Check out Toyose. It’s an amazing late night Korean restaurant in outer sunset. Bring friends, wait times can be brutal before 10pm.
