Angela and Richard Newsome

Angela and Richard Newsome

Angela grew up in the United Kingdom. At a young age she lived in several cities in the UK as her father was a professional football (soccer) manager/coach and managed some of the top English teams such as Sheffield Wednesday, Sunderland and Burnley. Angela had an interest in languages and studied French, German and Italian at Sunderland College and later became a professional translator. She worked for British companies for several years traveling in Western and Eastern Europe, including behind the “Iron Curtain” and even worked for the World Cup soccer games as a translator. She later became a commercial officer for the British Consulate in Zurich, Switzerland, for the promotion of British exports.

Richard grew up in the South (Mississippi) and was interested in pursuing a scientific education. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and physics and after a stint in the U.S. Air Force as a navigator. He joined a local industrial glass company in his home town that specialized in producing optical glass. During his tenure the company purchased a Swiss glass producer and sent Richard over to help with the transition. The posting was supposed to be for a few months but it turned into several years with Richard becoming the general manager of the Swiss operation.

Angela and Richard had met in the laundry room of the apartment complex where they both lived in Zurich.

“I couldn’t figure out how to operate the washing machine as all the instructions were in German,” Richard said.

Angela happened to be the only tenant in the building who could read and speak both German and English so she was summoned to help.

“I could not understand a word he said with his strong Southern accent,” Angel recalled.

Richard felt the same because of her English accent. “It took me three months to get her to go on a date, but I was very persistent,” he said. “We fell in love after several dates and were married in the Anglican Church in Zurich a few months later.”

A couple of years passed and Richard’s company transferred the couple to London where he opened a new branch office. After another year or so they moved to the United States. It was a homecoming for Richard but the first time Angela had ever lived in the U.S. Silicon Valley attracted the couple and they moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where Richard and Angela raised their two children and Richard pursued his high-tech career. Angela joined a real estate company in Almaden Valley in San Jose named Contempo Realty which was later purchased by Coldwell Banker.

Richard worked as an executive for several Silicon Valley companies. He was a senior director for a very large Fujitsu owned company. He also served as the CEO for both a 3-D computer graphics company and a local area network company. He was also executive vice president of a mid-sized computer storage company.

The couple moved to El Dorado Hills in 1998 where Richard continued his high-tech career consulting for several companies. In 2003 Richard and Angela joined the local office of Coldwell Banker where they have worked for more than 10 years. They are an experienced and knowledgeable husband and wife real estate team representing buyers and sellers of residential real estate in this whole area. They are both Realtors and Richard is a broker associate with Coldwell Banker.

Their son, who lives in New York City with his family, is the CEO a high-tech Internet company. Their daughter is a top sales professional with a provider of large system software located in the San Francisco Bay area. They have five grandchildren.
