A client asked me about something that was happening in Folsom, California and I wasn’t aware of it.  It made me realize that although I live here and I know quite a bit about it, I didn’t really KNOW as much about Folsom.

Thus, this site was born - www.AllAboutFolsomCalifornia.com .

Rico Castillo, Folsom Real Estate Agent & Beyond

My name is Rico Castillo.  Most of my friends and co-workers simply call me "Rico."  That's what I'm mostly known as.  

Serving Folsom, Granite Bay, El Dorado Hills and all the way to  Elk Grove and the Tri-County Areas

I’m a Folsom real estate agent and Broker Associate with Coldwell Banker serving Folsom, where I live.  I also service El Dorado Hills, Granite Bay, Roseville, as well as Elk Grove and most of Sacramento County and the areas immediately around it.

I’ve had my license since 1998.  This is my full time profession and I'm a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the Sacramento Association of Realtor (SAR)'s Master 's Club.  My DRE # is 01234643.

Click here to view what my clients have said about my services and how I got started in the real estate business.


The two main reasons why I started this site are . . .

  1. I love living in Folsom and I wanted to know more about Folsom.  I love it here.  My wife and I go to many of the restaurants and stores here.  We go to events, etc, but I know there is a lot more.
  2. I love helping people buy and sell real estate.  Therefore, I wanted to have a platform where I can give many tips, guides and insight into the world of buying and selling residential real estate from a productive agent's point of view.

You can find information about Folsom from the chamber (click here) or other larger sites and this site is not meant to compete with them... They have a much larger staff and deeper pockets.

So, this site is going to have more of a “personal” touch from my wife and I and also will try to have you look at Folsom through our eyes!  

This is my insight of what's in and around Folsom, as well as what's happening in the real estate market.

Since I have a love for real estate, you'll see more real estate articles that will serve to guide you through the different aspects of real estate - purchasing and selling a home.  I'll offer insights and HOW-TOs to help you hopefully save and/or make money in the largest investment of your life.

There are many great real estate articles through the internet and I hope to add to that list.

My wife, the Boss, will be writing once in a while, but it will be me most of the time.


We’ll talk about the local events and beautiful places to visit, things to do and shopping (the boss’ favorite), but I will be diving deep into the neighborhoods, schools and the local real estate market.  You can begin learning about the real estate market here.

I’ve always wanted to learn how to take great pictures, so taking pictures (and making videos) around Folsom will be the new norm for me (Don't laugh or look at me funny when you see me walking around town talking to my camera).  Therefore, the pictures and videos in this site will change once in a while. 

Let US come to YOU!

It’s going to take a while to write about all the fun and great things about Folsom, but we have to start somewhere, right?  We’ll add 1 to 2 articles a week and you’ll have the chance to interact with us after every article.  You’ll also have the opportunity to subscribe to our RSS feed and/or Free monthly Newsletter - this way AllAboutFolsomCalifornia.com comes to YOU.  Feel free to correct us if we write about something and our info is incorrect.

In some articles, you'll have a chance to review the subject and tell us your own wonderful story(ies).

Let us know if there is something around Folsom that you’d like for us to write about or just contact us if there is something about Folsom that you’d like to know more about.

You'll be able to search real estate listings in and around Folsom.  I'll also add resources and tips for buying OR selling a home in and around Folsom California.

We’ll also try to interview as many of the local business owners as we can and they’ll have a chance to be featured here and advertise here.  We love our local businesses.  It’s a win-win for all - you included.

We’re going to do some fun stuff here as well.  We will…

  • Start the process of making The Folsom Discount Card (10% off card) that you can use at participating stores and businesses.  We will put a notice on our site when the card is ready to roll out… We will actively approach as many businesses as we can to participate as a way to help their business get more exposure and to give you a reason to come out and play.   If you become a cardholder, we’ll send out notices of new participating stores and business. (This is currently in the works)
  • We will create fun shirts, caps, mugs, etc with some with fun “sayings” about Folsom to show your Folsom pride.… and you can  purchase them here…  You can even request to have a shirt, cup or cap made with whatever you want it to say- careful though, this is a family channel.

We’ll do other things, like contests and promotions, etc..  So, keep coming back and see what’s new!
